Experienced, very reliable couple

59, Retired

60, Retired

We are a retired professional couple and started house sitting during our move from Queensland to Tasmania in mid-2018. During this interstate move we house sat at several different locations, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Dogs, cats, chooks, sheep, ducks and fish were all looked after. The positive reviews we received demonstrate the care we took with the owners pets and property. Your home will be in very, very safe hands.

We are both fond of the outdoors, with a keen interest in walking, birdwatching and local history. Non-smokers, naturally.

As well as the 14 positive reviews on this page we have three more reviews on the Mindahome house sitting website. Please ask and we can send the link.

We now plan more house sitting adventures so please get in touch to see if we can help you out.

This was our first time finding a house sitter through aussiehousesitters.com.au, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! Julie and Bill took on the task of looking after our place and menagerie with obvious ease, and even managed to get the occasional glimpse of Puss (who is usually hiding when "strangers" are around). The house was spotless upon our return and Bill had just mown the lawns, so it was lovely coming home to a tidy place. Julie and Bill certainly experienced a range ... MORE
SERENA & ERIC (FISH CREEK VIC, May 2021 - 1 month 2 weeks)
Julie and Bill looked after our house and garden very well. It was wonderful to return home after several weeks away and not have anything to do but unpack. They kept us informed regularly as to how everything was going which we appreciated. We had to change plans and return a few days earlier than expected due to our plans being abandoned because of lockdowns. Julie and Bill were very gracious in accommodating these changes which we really appreciated. We would recommend them as excellent ... MORE

Julie and Bill provided great communication pre and during our house sit. We felt our digs and house were safe and well cared for during the 3 weeks we were away.
KYLIE AND DANIAL (Morayfield QLD, Jun 2021 - 2 weeks 3 days)
Julie and Bill were wonderful house sitters. They are an absolutely lovely couple and took excellent care of our home. The house was immaculate when we returned, and most importantly our cat was relaxed and happy and had clearly been thoughtfully looked after. Even the veggie patch was looking happy and healthy. They were very easy to communicate with, and we received frequent updates and photos of our baby which were much appreciated. We would absolutely recommend them as house sitters, and ... MORE

IAN (Barnes Bay TAS, Feb 2020 - 6 days)
In summary we were impressed by such a genuine couple who have provided terrific care for our pet. Bill and Julie communicated regularly with us and their courteous and honest demeanour prior to the house sit was welcome and reassuring. Our house, garden and lovely old pooch were in excellent condition after their short stay. We would recommend Bill and Julie and of course, without hesitation we will invite them for future stays. Aside from everything above, we are grateful for their ... MORE
STEVEN (Montagu Bay TAS, Dec 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
Julie and Bill did an amazing job. From the outset, they offered to come to the house and meet in person and meet our dogs prior to their stay which was a huge relief for us, as we have never used the housesitting website before. They remained in touch regularly throughout their stay to let us know all was well and we returned to a very clean house with very happy dogs. Highly recommended.
CLAIRE (Trevallyn TAS, Feb 2019 - 2 weeks)
Julie and Bill were our housesitters for three weeks during Nov/Dec 2018. Along with the house and vege garden, they took excellent care of our cat and a few chooks. They are a positive and reliable couple and I would highly recommend them for any future housesits that they may embark upon
ANNE (Hillwood TAS, Nov 2018 - 2 weeks 5 days)
Bill and Julie have just sat for us for a week and we were extremely impressed with their communication before the sit and their care of our property and animals during their stay. They are a friendly couple with a good sense of humour, and we would be delighted to have them again. We are looking forward to catch up with them when they are in our area again....what more can we say but Thank you Julie and Bill, from all Brown Dog Farm Inmates!
TIM AND ANNIE (Ulverstone TAS, Oct 2018 - 1 week)
I would have no hesitation in recommending Julie (and Bill). They managed our somewhat complicated chicken feeding routine and our dog Bill, I am sure, enjoyed his walks. All was good when we returned. Reliable house sitters.
LISA (Robigana TAS, Sep 2018 - 3 weeks)
Julie and Bill did a wonderful job house-sitting on our small farm in Penguin. They left the place cleaner than it was when they came, looked after all the animals and plants very well, and even had to deal with an extra challenge when a ewe got sick - much appreciated. Can't recommend them highly enough - I'm sure they will take every care with your home as they did with ours.
IONA (Penguin TAS, Aug 2018 - 1 week 3 days)
Julie & Bill are wonderful house sitters. They communicated well and in a timely manner. As soon as they arrived, they were into helping with home tasks, like tidying up, garden tasks, understanding how everything worked. They did some tasks above and beyond normal home care, and this was much appreciated. We did not have pets that needed care, but the garden, seedlings and cuttings were well cared for and survived. We came home to a much better organized kitchen as well. We ... MORE
SUSAN & TED (Beechford TAS, Jun 2018 - 1 month 2 weeks)
No rating I highly recommend Julie and Bill as house sitters.They cared for our beloved two dogs and home and our extensive garden for the two weeks we were away and we were pleasantly surprised to find the house spotless and even the linen washed.As they are currently in Tassie for a short while but seem to be happy to see our beautiful country.Snap these two up as they are gold.Rose and John Bodalla NSW
