We are an active non smoking, early retired couple, honest and trustworthy, and have many references and endorsements attached to our profile plus police clearances for your peace of mind. We have been proud homeowners for over 30 years in Queensland, and have raised our family there. Over the years we have had numerous family pets including horses, goats, chooks, goldfish, cats and dogs, so we are very happy to look after your loved ones and your home and garden whilst you are away. We have renovated our own home, so we are quite handy around the home,and garden, and are willing to have a go at most things. We have been house sitting for eight years now and find the variety of pets and challenges very satisfying. We supply all our own consumables so that the home owner does not have to provide anything, and is not inconvenienced in any way. We are keen to find out what challenges future sits send our way.

Cheers David & Patricia

No rating Hi All I am very happy to write this reference for David and Patricia Hughes. They house sat my 12 year old German Shepherd, Sam, for a week while I was interstate. I wanted to meet David and Patricia before the sit and they were kind enough to come to my place before I left home to meet both myself and Sam. From the moment I met them I knew that Sam was going to be in good hands and that these were two very special people. Both David and Patricia took time to sit with Sam and get to ... MORE

I can only give this very genuine couple five stars for everything. We came back to an immaculate house, a happy cat and a well cared for garden. We are looking forward to catching up with David and Patricia when they are next in our area.
LEO (Shoalwater WA, May 2019 - 1 week 5 days)
David and Patricia house sat for us looking after our much loved and a little spoilt Beagles. David and Patricia took great care of both our home and our pets over a 3 week period. We would highly recommend them to anyone and we would gladly have them back to house sit again for us anytime.
ELAINE (Parkes NSW, Feb 2019 - 2 weeks 5 days)
David and Pat have just completed their fourth house sit for us. We were again extremely pleased with their care. On this occasion they looked after not only our old cat(administering tablets daily) but also our Groodle puppy.They were excellent with her, continued her obedience training, walks and improved her house training. They were happy to cook the dogs casserole and the cats fish! When the automatic pool timer failed David was able to fix it. The house was spotless and the garden well ... MORE
DIANA & COLIN (Garden Suburb NSW, Feb 2019)
David and Patricia did a fantastic job, the house looks great and our pets are all happy and relaxed, we couldn't have had such a great time away if we wouldn't have had such great sitters. Communication has also been fantastic from the start to the end. Great experience, thanks David and Patricia.
TANYA (Smithfield QLD, Dec 2018 - 1 month 2 weeks)
David and Pat are a lovely couple who did an absolutely wonderful job looking after our house and pets. They were great with communication and checked in every so often leading up to the sit to confirm it was still on track. The house was spotlessly clean upon our return and the pets super happy with them. I would recommend them for future sits and we have already organised for them to sit for us again in 2020.
LIZE (Bayside - Manly QLD, Dec 2018 - 5 days)
Thanks Guys a lovely review we will keep in touch and would love to come back to Manly to look after the pets. They were a lovely couple and made us very welcome the house was spotless so we did not have a great deal to do to keep it in the condition they left it, look forward to seeing you again ... MORE
No rating David & Patricia were the very best of Housesitters. My girls (cats) Marra & Luna were so very relaxed on our return that I don't think they noticed we were gone. Our house was immaculate, I'm ashamed to say, much more orderly clean and tidy than when I left. I have no hesitation in recommending David & Patricia to care for your house and animals as they will get the very best of care. I cannot thank them enough for our worry free holiday.
CAROL (Cardiff NSW, Mar 2018 - 1 week)
No rating David and Patricia were excellent house sitters. They met us before the sit, driving all the way from Canberra to the southern highlands to have coffee and a chat. We liked them straight away and felt very comfortable leaving them in our home. The house was spotless when we returned, inside and out. We rang them several times to pick up parcels for us or to open up mail we had been waiting for. They enjoyed exploring the local area and David looked after the pool. It was crystal clear on our ...

DEBBIE AND JEFF (Engadine NSW, Jan 2018 - 1 month 2 weeks)
No rating We cannot thank Patricia and David enough for looking after our house and our dog who died shortly after our return to Australia. They were most caring and concerned and we feel so fortunate that they were with her. They looked after our grounds and house so well and they are truly the best house sitters we have had.
PRUE (Exeter NSW, May 2017)
No rating David and Patricia were the best house sitters we have ever had. They treated our Labradors and house as if it was their own. They walked the dogs every day and the dogs were quite sad for many days after we got home because they missed them so much! When we returned the house was immaculate - they brought all their own linen, food, even toilet paper! They even mowed the lawns and attended to a plumbing and electrical problem which arose when we were away. We also loved how they emailed us ... MORE
JAIMIE (Newcastle NSW, Apr 2017 - 4 weeks)
No rating What a pleasure to have met David & Patricia. They looked after our house like they would a home. They look after our pets with care and love. They took time to meet with us before the housesitting dates, so we left on our holiday totally relaxed and confident everything would be okay. We came back to an immaculate house and very happy, healthy pets. Thank you David & Patricia - if you're ever in the area please pop by for a cuppa, we'd love to see you. Best wishes, Lorna & James
LORNA & JAMES (Frenchs Forest NSW, Apr 2017)
No rating David and Patricia were two of the best house sitters we have had. Our home was immaculate when we returned, the garden well looked after, and our dog obviously fit and happy after his month with them. They were extremely helpful in fitting in with our change of return date. I would not hesitate to recommend them as sitters and would be extremely happy to have them sit again.
JENELLE AND CHRIS (Kangaroo Valley NSW, Jan 2017)
No rating David and Patricia took great care of my house and my 3 dogs for 4 days in January '17 while I was away. They were great with my dogs and left the house lovely and clean for me to return to. They were very nice people and very easy to get along with and nothing was a drama. I wouldn't hesitate to ask them to house sit for me again and certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for any other house sit someone was contemplating them for.
DEBORAH SINCLAIR (Morpeth NSW, Jan 2017 - 4 days)
No rating My family and I had the great pleasure in meeting David and Patricia to housesit our beloved cat and dog. This was the first time I have left our pets with someone in six years, needless to say I was a bit anxious at the prospect. There was no need for any anxiety, David and Patricia came over twice before the allocated sit and made me feel completely at ease, I knew my pets would be in good hands. We went on an 8 day cruise whereby we had no WIFI but at no time did I feel any uncertainty. I ... MORE

Safe house!

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