59, HR Manager - retired

60, Retail Assistant / Switch board operator

We are a happy, quiet, easy going non-smoking mature couple who have raised 3 wonderful children and are now embracing a gradual transition to retirement. Roger spent 35 years working across all three levels of Government and Janette has just wound up a 22 year career with Big W.

We have a beautiful home base in SE Qld from which we have embarked on a self sufficient camping trip around OZ and several long coastal reef sailing trips up the Queensland coast. These experiences are coupled with an early career for Roger as a Horticulturist and Janette"s great love of animals. This enables us to turn our hand to whatever tasks are necessary to manage and maintain property, plants and animals.

We are honest, resourceful, reliable and happy with our own company and enjoying the environment we find ourselves in.

We enjoyed a circuit of Aus in 2017 featuring some wonderful house sitting in 3 states and a short stint as a camp ground host on a small property. Since then we continued to do ocassional housesits in various locations in NSW and Qld. Our intention is to do some shorter trips in 2020 incorporating house sitting if possible as we loved the opportunity to spend time with some lovely animals and got to know and explore local communities in much greater depth.

Rest assured we will look after your home and pets as if they were our own and respect your privacy. We both hold current Blue card status.

Roger and Janette were lovely house sitters who looked after our house and dog perfectly. They were great with their communication and sent photo's of our dog to us whilst we were away. Our home was also tidy and clean when we returned. I would not hesitate to have them stay again.
KERRY (THE GAP QLD, Dec 2018 - 1 week)
Roger and Janette looked after our house and our beautiful Evie, November 2019. We had good communication while we were away about what Evie was up to and photos. We felt confident leaving our home and Evie in their care. It was a pleasure to come home to a happy Evie and a very clean. house. Roger and Janette are a quiet friendly couple and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is looking for reliable respectful sitters.
NANETTE (Thornlands QLD, Nov 2019 - 1 week 2 days)
Thanks Roger and Janet for your recent house sit with us. On return the house was clean and tidy and the dog happy and well. Janet made contacting each other easy and regularly updated us on shotty (the dog) sending photos and comments. It was a pleasure having you stay and we recommend you for any future sits.
SANDRA (dalmeny NSW, Sep 2019 - 1 week)
We were very happy to have Roger and Janette look after our house and very spoilt & much- loved cat while we were on holiday in Japan. Roger & Janette are very communicative, respectful and reliable. When we returned our house was neat, tidy and clean as we left it and our cat was happy and contented and had actuallly gained weight. We have no hesitation in recommending Janette and Roger for house sitting positions.
SHIRLEY (Bonny Hills NSW, Aug 2019 - 15 days)
Roger & Janette are the ideal house sitters. They have taken wonderful care of our dogs, chickens and budgie as well as going above and beyond with a full house clean to welcome us home. We are happy to recommend Roger and Janette as highly caring and trustworthy house sitters.
DAVID (Highvale QLD, Apr 2019 - 1 week 6 days)
No rating Roger and Janette were a wonderful couple. They took fantastic care of our dog and house and we came back to both of them having been cleaned. We even received photos or Roger playing with Scruffy so my son didn't miss her so much! We would highly recommend them and wish them all the best on their travels.
KATHY (Chidlow WA, Apr 2017 - 2 weeks 2 days)
No rating Roger and Janette looked after my house, dog (bran) and my Chooks/geese. I was stoked to come home to a clean and tidy house and happy animals, I would thoroughly recommend them and wish them well on their travels
SHANE (St Helens TAS, Jan 2017 - 2 weeks 2 days)
No rating Roger and Janette were absolutely perfect! They really took care of our place and animals well and were great at communicating ie pictures of happy pets! They also went beyond what was expected and worked hard to clean up our pool and help organise a pool technician to come out. really grateful that we were able to go on a 2 week holiday with great comfort that our house and pets were in good hands... and hopefully they had a nice stay too!

House Security

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
