We are Kirsty and Lawrie, from Brisbane, Australia.

Kirsty, held senior level positions in the not-for-profit sector. Lawrie is a retired journalist.

We are now indulging in our love of travel and pets. We've been housesitting around the world since June 2018. We've cared for dogs, cats, fish and guinea pigs in Australia, Vietnam, Spain, the UK, Switzerland, Slovakia, France, the Netherlands, the US and Canada.

We are non-drinkers and non-smokers and will respect your home and possessions as we would our own. We are good communicators and are available on FaceTime, WhatsApp and Skype (details on request).

Having owned, rented and cared for numerous properties, apartments and houses, we know how to care for houses, furniture and gardens.

We both grew up with dogs and cats and have had cats most of our adult lives. The most recent pair, Alvin and Henry, came into our lives after finding themselves homeless. The biggest wrench for us when we set off on this adventure was to rehome them, but fortunately they now live with a loving "aunt".

We know that all animals have independent personalities that must be understood and respected if they are to be cared for properly. Usually that involves clean litter, ample and suitable food, plenty of fluids, exercise ... and, most importantly, lots of affection.

Unfortuntely due to the current events with the Coronavirus our holiday was cancelled and Kirsty & Lawrie's sit was interrupted. We all had to live together for a while. What an engaging, open and heart-warming couple who, under extreme circumstances, still made the most of their sit showing no hesitation to jump in and help out with the household while trying to enjoy their stay with us. We are also sorry the sit did not go as planned, but would have no hesitation in recommending or in fact ... MORE
DARREN (Bribie Island QLD, Mar 2020 - 1 week)
Kirsty & Lawrie were the perfect house sitters. Our house was kept immaculately clean (it was probably cleaner when we got home than when we left!) and the dogs well cared for and clearly happy. Any challenges they ran into were quickly and clearly communicated to us and we always felt completely safe with our dogs and house in their hands. We even had some pasta made for us when we got home which was very welcome after some long travel time. We wouldn't hesitate to use Kirsty and ... MORE

Kirsty and Lawrie were amazing house sitters and took fantastic care of my two large dogs. I felt completely comfortable leaving my home in their care and appreciated getting updates on how everything was going while I was away. They are a warm, friendly and down to earth pair with a wealth of experience house sitting and I would not hesitate to recommend Kirsty and Lawrie to others. Thank you so much!
