We are traveling this beautiful country in our 4WD motor home.

Neil was in the police force for over 20 years, then worked in the IT industry.
Di has always worked in administration/customer service, and for the last 8 years she was employed by Barwon Health, Geelong.

We pride ourselves on ensuring home owners have a relaxed, and stress free break while we are looking after their homes and pets.
Should you have any additional requirements, please feel free to discuss them with us - we are happy to take on some paid additional work if circumstances permit.

Folks we are now fully booked till Mid 2020

Di and Neil were fabulous. They looked after our 6 chooks and elderly dog (Molly) for two and a half weeks. Molly had an eye injury prior to the sit and required eye drops and medication. She also had an appointment at the vets which isn't an easy task and requires a ramp into the car for the old girl. They did a great job and Molly's eye is much better, Molly loved their company and has been looking for them since they left. The house was lovely and clean on our return. Would love to ... MORE

Di and Neil were delightful, warm and friendly sitters. This was my first experience with leaving Abby (dog), chooks and farm to AussieHouseSitters. I am sad it couldn't be for the planned longer trip to Alice Springs, but my little Victorian holiday was made very easy, thanks to assistance from such lovely people. I came home to a contented dog, clean house, pretty crocheted kitchen towels and several meals worth of curry in the fridge ! They'll be welcome back anytime.
SUSAN (Outtrim VIC, Aug 2020 - 1 week)
Thank you. It really was a pleasure to be there looking after Abby
Loved that we felt like old friends when Di and Neil arrived as we had been communicating through text and Facebook leading up to the sit. So felt very comfortable on our first holiday using sitters, leaving our home and dogs in their care. We returned home to a delicious meal, mowed lawn, clean house and cars and two very happy German Shepherds! Wishing you both good health and safe travels!

Di and Neil are fantastic housesitters with great communication. This was my first housesit and i was a little nervous - They took excellent care of my dog, cat, kitten, chooks and fish on our large property and i could enjoy my holiday stress free. They went above and beyond buying my cats a fancy litter tray, stocking the fridge with a few items on my return and even collecting myself and 3 kids from the airport. Thank you so much i would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone xx
TESS (Clifton Beach QLD, Mar 2019 - 1 week 6 days)
Di and Neil are absolutely wonderful house sitters. They left our home very clean and tidy. They are very professional and conscientious and take house sitting seriously. They emailed us with updates on our kitten and made us feel confident leaving our home and pet in their care. They went over and above what we were expecting. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a house sitter. I would love for them to house sit for us again if there is another opportunity in the future.
TIFINY (Cairns QLD, Feb 2019 - 3 weeks)

We have booked Di and Neil again already for another trip and we know we will always seek them out for future trips away,,,

ANETA (Speewah QLD, Nov 2018 - 2 weeks)
Di and Neil are the best house sitters we've ever had by far! They left the house immaculate, with floors you could eat off, a sparkling bathroom and a clean fridge. We left my husband's car for them to drive - it was returned clean (a real task, I can tell you) and with fuel in it. We received regular communication and photos of our fur babies. And as well as all that, they are lovely people and we were confident that we could go away and relax! Thanks so much, Di and Neil!!
CHRISSY (Peeramon QLD, Nov 2018 - 1 week 1 day)

AERON (Koah QLD, Oct 2018 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating We couldn't be happier with the sitting services provided by Neil and Di. Right from the initial meet we felt confident leaving our home and our 3 cats in their hands. Their communication was excellent. We received emails with updates and photos of the cats. We came home and the house was immaculate. They had even noted the kind of milk we used and made sure there was some in the fridge for us! We gave them one of the cars to drive while we were away and when we went to drive it we found it ...

SHEILA & IAN (Mindarie WA, Jan 2018 - 2 weeks 5 days)
No rating Hi Di and Neil. Thank you for looking after our place while we were away for two weeks. We were very thrilled to see you liked our cheeky Bobby who has attacked both Kerry and I since we have been home latched unto our feet....We were very very happy with everything lawns mowed,roses pruned and the verandah wonderfully cleaned of all of Percys mess,house in a better state than I had left it. I know you are very booked out for most of next year but if a cancellation arises around May/June we ... MORE

No rating Di and Neil..I thought I had done this just after you left. Thank you for the amazing job you did. I would highly recommend you to any one looking for a conscientious house sitter. We found ourselves in a difficult situation, Di and Neil stepped up to the mark with out ant question or hesitation. Our home was well looked after and our girls (dogs) were very much loved and looked after . thank you so much
HELEN (Broome WA, Sep 2016 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating Di and Neil are very special people and wonderful dog and house sitters. It was the first time I had left my two spoilt but very different dogs, for any length of time. I really don't think they missed me thanks to the care that Di and Neil took of them. I came home to mowed lawns, pot plants thriving, spotless house and even a lovely orchid gift. But most importantly two totally happy dogs and neighbours whose comment was "Gees they are lovely people, you can go away anytime." So my dogs and ... MORE

No rating I can highly recommend Di and Neil to house sit and also look after your animals. My boys (2 tabby cats) warmed to them very quickly and I also received texts and photos regularly with updates. This was like having friends take care of your home and pets. I will definitely keep them on speed dial for my next holiday. Thanks Guys !!!!
HELEN (Cairns North QLD, Feb 2016 - 3 days)
No rating If House Sitting was a profession Di and Neil would be at the top of their game. They were amazing - we were never concerned about anything while we were away. They kept in touch with us even sending photos of our "fur babies" which was just lovely. We were away just over 5 weeks and during this time we had a change over of internet service providers also both of our cars had unexpected issues and Di and Neil dealt with all of this without fuss. Nothing was too much trouble. When we ... MORE
LARINDA HOPTON (Crystal Cascades / Cairns QLD, Dec 2015 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating Di & Neil minded our house and pets for a week while our young family of 5 went up the coast last week. From the moment they accepted our request to take on the house sit, the communication was excellent, they kept in contact up until the date, asked us lots of questions about what we were hoping to expect from their time here, and were open to any questions we had too. It was the first time we'd had anyone mind our house and we felt reassured from the start that we had made the right ... MORE
MONIQUE & BEN (Wentworth Falls NSW, Nov 2015 - 1 week)
No rating Di and Neil have recently sat our hobby farm. Over a 5 week period they undertook the complex care of breeding ducks, geese and guinea pigs, the latter requiring regular attention, and all requiring organised 'mucking out'. I cannot speak more highly of the quality of their attention and care for our creatures, their cages and various patterns of existence and feeding. They also had to take onboard the weight of losses from natural attrition and I feel gratitude for their assuming the ... MORE
PETER & BIFFY (glenaire VIC, Sep 2015 - 4.5 weeks)
No rating Neil & Di house sat for us from 29 July 2015 to 15 September 2015 during our time in Boston, USA. They proved to be exemplary sitters in every way. We could not fault them. Their attention to our cat was wonderful. Lily happily adjusted to their company & thrived throughout their stay. They were assiduous in maintaining our home & grounds. They handled a couple of maintenance issues satisfactorily, having cleared the engagement of tradesmen with us beforehand. They were in regular email ... MORE
