Experienced, Trustworthy House Sitters

We are a family that loves to travel. For the last 7 years we have been travelling around Australia in our caravan and spending long periods of time with family in Ireland. Our 14 year old daughter is enrolled in a distance education school which gives us the freedom to enjoy our wonderful lifestyle. Living in a small space we know the importance of keeping things neat and tidy and punctuality is important to us. We are non-smoking and work from home so will be there to give your pets lots of cuddles and attention during the day too.
Our experience Being ex-dairy and beef farmers we have plenty of experience with animals. Mark & Deirdre have share-farmed (part ownership) and operated farms with up to 1300 dairy cows and Mark has also worked on a large sheep farm as part of his university degree requirements. We have also had small pets; cats, dogs, goldfish, a rabbit and chooks and our daughter is crazy about horses so we're confident we can take good care of your pets. We have been self-employed for most of the last 28yrs farming, property investing and property buyer's advocate. We have had tenants and have been tenants, always having our bond returned in full. While on our dairy and beef farm we had relief milkers stay in our house while we were away so we understand how house owners feel having someone come in and look after your home and animals. We are happy to give you regular updates on your pets so you can relax on your holiday. Mark has had a real estate licence from 2009-present date so has had regular criminal history checks every time his licence was renewed. We are happy to provide you with several 5 star reviews from previous house sits completed prior to joining this website. We look forward to being of service to you, Mark and family.
Mark, Deirdre and Kinsella were fantastic house sitters.
We have a 20 acre property with sheep, horses, chooks, dogs and fish so a lot of a lot of responsibility was required. We were only contactable via email but this was not a problem and we received regular updates.
Kinsella is a natural with animals, our two Cavaliers and sheep dog warmed to her straight away.
You cannot go wrong with leaving Mark, Deirdre and Kinsella to care for your home and pets.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! Mark and Diedre made our vacation totally worry free. Fantastic communication before and during our vacation. They looked after our home and cared for our pets (dogs, chickens, rabbits and guniea pigs) amazingly well. We can't speak highly enough of our positive experience with Mark and Diedre. We will be definitely be asking them to housesit for us again in the future. Many thanks.

We recently spent five weeks overseas. It was our first experience with house sitters, and naturally we were a little anxious leaving our home and pets with strangers. As soon as we met Mark, Deirdre and Kinsella we knew we had made the right decision and set off on our holiday knowing our dog and cat were in the best of hands. When we returned the pets were well, the house was spotless and they had kindly organised breakfast for our first morning at home. We would have no hesitation in ...

We would have no hesitation in recommending Mark, Deirdre and Kinsella as trustworthy and caring folk to look after your home and pets while you enjoy your holiday. If the stars align we would be delighted to book them at another time in the future ... Marilyn & Theo
