Hi there!
We're Rod and Katrina and our three youngest beautiful daughters, Evie, Eliza and Heidi, ages 12, 10 and 7. Our girls love animals as much as we do and, like us, are gentle and respectful with them. We have two older children too; our daughter Alaina is married to Caleb and we have a delightful granddaughter Frida, with another on the way. Our son Jay lives with Alaina and Caleb in Kyogle, NSW.
We are non-smokers. Rod is an electrical fitter/mechanic by trade and works as a handyman as we travel. Rod also fully maintains our vehicles, has built cars and has a great knowledge of them. We are debt-free, having sold our investments and our home on acreage, which was built by Rod. For the next few years, we intend to continue housesitting while living a minimalist lifestyle and enjoying new parts of Australia as our daughters grow. We homeschool our girls and until recently, lived off-grid in our lovely ATV caravan on a friend's property for over 12 months. Where we lived, there were 2 cows, 1 horse, 10 ducks, 3 goats, 2 dogs (a Maremma pup and a Cattle Dog cross) and we shared 40 chickens and 2 roosters with our friends. We both grew up with pet dogs and cats and years ago had two gorgeous Papillons. Currently, we are housesitting/caravanning our way down south; working through seven confirmed housesits in and around the Toowoomba region. Loving pets and maintaining property, gardens, yards and homes is something we have much experience with and we would love to care for your home, pets and gardens for you!


Katrina, Rod and the girls were fantastic sitters - they took care of our house and pets brilliantly. Nothing was too much trouble for them and their communication was first class. We highly recommend them.

I know it's a little late .... we all get side-tracked by our 'stuff''. Rod and Katrina and the girls were great and they are coming again in September. I would love them to come again at Christmas but they have accepted another House Sit.
