Experienced, caring, pet lovers

We are currently on our 59th sit in Scarborough Qld, caring for a cat in a lovely apartment with a fantastic view.
In March 2015 we packed our household goods into storage, and started on our adventure of house and pet sitting. During this time we have met the most wonderful loving pets, lived in beautiful homes, met lovely families, and visited to great places in our fantastic diverse country. Including 3 months in Tasmania, a month in the NT where we hadn't been before, and have spent a lot of time in Far North Queensland where be both really love. Since Mid 2019 we only sit part-time.

We are pet lovers who are enjoying spending time with other pets, sharing their lives, and getting to know their little personalities. We also enjoy walking dogs (cats and birds) in new places, and making the most of our new location, capturing it with photography, we also appreciate the local bird song of different locations. Kevin enjoys day hikes when he gets the opportunity. We are mostly homebodies, happy to eat in, and watch tv with a pet on our lap. We have always had pets in our family until Tilly (our little dog) died 3 years ago, aged 17.

We know how important pets are in a family, we adhere to your schedule, and give pets plenty of love and care. Even the most shy cats and dogs, who dislike men fall in love with Kevin. Dogs greet us as if they already know us. We are happy with large or small dogs, and are able to walk for several hours per day.

House sitting saves on kennel fees, and fretting pets, and in most cases, your home insurance is covered having someone in your home.

We are clean, trustworthy and responsible, and will look after your pets and home as if they are our own. We do not smoke or have parties.

We have swimming pool and hot tub care experience. Ride on Mower and gardening experience. Experience with chickens, pigs, horse feeding, goats, elderly dogs, rescue dogs, puppies and cat care, and are happy to have your pet sleep on the bed with us, if this is what you request, as our own little dog had done this in the past. We will keep your home running in the way you and your pets are familiar with for a happy home.

We have cared for several small farms, one being a small poultry farm with 4 horses in Tasmania, and a farm with a mixture including pigs, goats and chickens etc., and many houses and small farms with chickens.

We can assure that you can go away on holiday, and have peace of mind, that your home and pets are being looked after well, as you would expect, and you can arrive home to a clean, happy home.

We travel in a mid size 4wd, or have flown and been offered the family car.

We prefer homes on one level with minimal stairs.

We also take 'word of mouth' house sits.

We both have current Police Checks, and excellent reviews/references with our profile.

If we sound like who you are looking for, we would be happy to hear from you.

Thank you for reading our profile.

We were very happy with Kevin and Diane. They looked after our house and more importantly our dogs very well. We arrived home to a clean and tidy home and very happy dogs. We would be happy to recommend them and would definitely use them again if they were available Margaret

MICHELLE (Gloucester NSW, Apr 2019)
Kevin and Diane did a good job looking after our house, garden and dog! They left the house in a clean tidy state and left us milk and bread. The dog was relaxed and in good condition. The veggie garden stayed alive thanks to their good watering, came home to lots of tomatoes and cucumbers! Thanks Kevin and Diane
CAROLYN (Old Bar NSW, Feb 2019)
Kevin and Diane recently looked after our elderly dog and home. It was great to meet with them both prior to us leaving and communication was easy and reliable throughout the house sit. We returned to a happy and content pet and our home was spotless and exactly as we had left it. Thank you :-)
MICHAEL AND BELINDA (Lake Cathie NSW, Sep 2018 - 6 days)
No rating We were attracted to Kevin & Diane's profile due to the number of completed sits and the high praise that they had received. Our home was left in a clean and tidy state for them and on our return we found it to have been maintained to the same standard. We could not find fault with anything in the home - it hardly seemed as though anyone had been there! Our two dogs obviously received plenty of attention and were calm and settled when we returned. Thank you and best wishes for your future ... MORE

No rating Diane and Kevin unit sat for us from 6 July to 6 August 2018. They looked after our elderly dogs with great care and maintained their daily routine. The dogs loved them. Our unit was as clean as the day we left and we would not hesitate to use Diane and Kevin for any future house sits.

No rating Thank you both for looking after our beautiful cat and our house. The house was immaculate when we arrived home. We know a 12 month sit is a long time especially for an acreage. You did amazingly well. Thank you.

No rating Thank you Kevin and Dianne for your house sit at West Haven for us in March 2017.The dogs and cat were very happy and well looked after while we were away and the house and pool was very clean and tidy and look forward to having you sit again next time if you are available...thanks Peter and Nina.
PETER AND NINA (West Haven NSW, Mar 2017 - 4 weeks)
No rating Right off the bat, I could not endorse Kevin and Diane enough. They house sat for us in January this year which involved looking after our dog and chickens and fish. They were all clearly well cared for and the house was left clean and tidy, just the way you'd like after being away. We found them to be easy going and listened to our instructions. We were very happy and intend to use them again if our travel dates and their availability can line up.
VIOLETA (Dulcot TAS, Jan 2017 - 2 weeks 3 days)
No rating We recently had the pleasure of having Kevin and Diane look after our home, elderly dog and hyperactive cat for 5 weeks while we were interstate. WHAT A FANTASTIC COUPLE THEY ARE!! Our home was well looked after and CLEANER than we left it, our dog and cat were extremely loved and exceptionally looked after, they are both going to miss them. We HIGHLY recommend them to everyone/anyone wishing to go in holiday. If there was a star rating out of 10 we would give them 10,000...perfect couple, ... MORE

PETER (Port Macquarie NSW, Apr 2016 - 3 weeks)
No rating If there are better house sitters than Kevin and Diane, we certainly have not met them yet. They were in our villa for nearly 8 months. When we returned, the house was spotless. The only breakages that occurred during that time, they replaced. Wish we could get them again.
GORDON AND BARBARA (Port Macquarie NSW, Mar 2016 - 7 months)

No rating I would love to thank Diane and Kevin for taking good care of our home and our very loved family member and labrador Mocha during our absence recently. It was very pleasing to be away knowing everything was being taken care of for us at home so we could enjoy our holiday and business trip and not worry. Coming home the place was left immaculate, everything was as we left it and i felt they had gone above and beyond our expectations. We will not hesitate to ask Diane and Kevin to come ... MORE

No rating If you want really good housesitters, please use Kevin and Diane. Lovely people, my animals adored them and were sad to see them go. I will be using them again hopefully for our next holiday. Our house was lovely and clean when we got home. My husband and I have no hesitation in recommending these wonderful people as housesitters. Two beautiful people who did a wonderful job looking after our house and our precious animals.
