I have 20 years experience house sitting the east coast by word of mouth from friends and a few years of very enjoyable house sitting with aussiehousesitters.
I enjoy all of the house sitting and helping out with caring for pets and house and garden maintenance and meeting people from around Australia.

No rating This is the second time we've used Doune for housesitting. This time he brought along his wife Nang and little daughter Adreena. We highly recommend Doune and Nang. When we returned from our four week holiday the house was clean, the pets were happy and they even left us some baked goods and some original art that Nang had painted. Communication was great, both in the lead up to the house sit and while we were away. We feel absolutely confident leaving our house and pets in Doune and ... MORE

Dourne and Nang are a quiet respectful couple with a sweet 2 yr old. My ragdoll storm took a distinct liking to her the moment they arrived. There was a small issue with one of my cats getting into a difficult spot and they organised for my partner to go and help out. The house was beautiful and tidy and the animals were well cared for.

As Doune was our 1st house sitter we were a bit apprehensive, but we were very pleased indeed. Not only did Doune look after our pets and house as if they were his own, he also keep us updated as to how everything was going. I can highly recommend Doune for anybody looking for a reliable, honest house sitter. We will definitely be using Doune again when we travel.

we had Doune, Nang and Adreena cared for our house and animals for 11 days. We had daily communication regarding the animals etc. When we arrived home the house was spotless and all dogs where bathed as was their bedding etc. We would highly recommend Doune and Nang to house sit. :)

Thanks yes probably good to get out of all positives. Negs might be daily red back check 1 big near 1 cm per day, she said in house too, Orange cat can be agressive, scratches bites. Big one parent family so expect some cleaning etc. Jackson can be a bumbling nuisance but as mentioned in positives ... MORE
Doune and Nang looked after our home and our precious Dalmatians while we took a much needed holiday break. We cannot give enough praise to both Doune and Nang for the manner in looking after our property. We had a delay in returning home (due to illness) and Doune and Nang were able to accommodate our delay. How good it was to return home to a neat and tidy house, lovely home cooked meals and 2 very happy dogs. We hope we will be fortunate enough to have Doune and Nang house sit again. ... MORE

No rating Very happy with the housesit Doune did for me. Animals were very well looked after. House was as I left it. Overall would recommend.
KIRSTY (Mount Pleasant QLD, Sep 2017 - 4 days)
No rating This was the first time that we used Aussie House Sitters and we were very pleased with both the website and with Doune as a house sitter. His communication was excellent, both in the lead up to, and during the house-sit. We have a dog, two cats, fish tanks, chickens and even a pet snake... so not a simple house sit, but Doune handled it really well. Prior to the sit, Doune was researching how to look after snakes so that he was ready for a new experience! While we were away Doune sent regular ... MORE

No rating We were very impressed with Doune as a house-sitter. His communication was good, both in leading up to the house-sit and during the time we were away. We were sent regular photos of our dog Bella, who looked very content! Doune left the house very clean and the lawns were freshly mowed and the garden was neat and tidy. The neighbours spoke very highly of Doune. We would have no hesitation in recommending Doune to others or having him house sit for us again in the future.

No rating Doune recently housesat for us while we were away for 2 weeks. He also took care of our German Shepherd, Laika. On our return the house etc was left neat and clean and Laika was happy and relaxed. It was also good to have someone nearby who could do a short housesit when we require it. Thank you Doune and all the best for future housesits. Carol and Joe

No rating I returned to my home after a five week holiday and found it to be in pristine condition. The garden was immaculate and my two little dogs were happy, fit, freshly bathed and in excellent health. Doune did a wonderful job of house sitting for me. I recommend him to you.
