Terry and I have recently started a little gardening maintenance business and work at this on a part time basis. I also run a home-based business (since 2005) and am flexible to move around with a mobile office (pc, printer and few files)..
We have been continually house sitting since April 2014, and this is our chosen lifestyle. It means that we are both at your home for a lot of the time and have ample time to look after your pets and keep everything neat and tidy.
We have experience with dogs, cats, birds, chooks, tropical fish and a pig! We both love to walk and would be delighted if you have dogs that need regular exercise.
We invite you to ring for an exploratory chat.

We would like to thank Catherine and Terry for looking after our pets, garden and house so well during our holiday. It is obvious they have extensive experience in house sitting and are well prepared for most situations that could develop during one's absence. Upon our return, the house was picobello, all the pets were happy and healthy, and the garden looked as good as ever. What more can one ask for? We strongly recommend Catherine & Terry to anyone who has a need for dedicated, ... MORE

Catherine and Terry were fantastice housesitters. They looked after our home beautufully and our little Tilly dog really loved them. THey gave us a lovely welcome home with a dinner cooked for us.

PETA (ROLEYSTONE WA, Jul 2019 - 1 week 4 days)
Catherine and Terry were a wonderful couple to have house sit and look after our Beagle, Buddy. He may have been a bit headstrong and set in his ways and love his routine, however, we believe he was well looked after. We arrived back home after nearly 3 weeks on holiday to a house which was beautifully clean, linen washed and even a vase of flowers on our kitchen bench, fresh milk, eggs and bacon in the fridge. We are very pleased with their sit and the communication shared between us, pictures ... MORE
DAVID & GAIL (Maylands WA, Mar 2019 - 2 weeks 3 days)
No rating We were looking for house sitters to look after our home and dog for a month and Catherine and Terry applied. We have nothing but great things to say about the two of them. They were very professional and took care of both our home and dog EXTREMELY well. The house looked cleaner when we returned than when we left, and the dog was very happy too! We even had a lovely hot meal prepared for us on our return which was delicious. We had regular updates regarding our dog and the home, and could ... MORE

No rating Catherine & Terry looked after our dog, cat and rabbit whilst we went on holidays for 2weeks. We instantly hit it off with them and knew our animals were in good hands. Our dog Buddy is a nervous rescue dog and yet after the initial meeting he loved them! They sent us regular updates on our furry friends and even made us dinner for when we got home which was delicious. We would highly recommend Catherine and Terry as house/pet sitters and will definitely keep in touch and use them again.

No rating Catherine and Terry have looked after our house for a month.It was very important that our two dogs were well looked after. We got many e mails and pictures to prove that they were very well looked after. On our return we found both the house and garden to be immaculate. We were so pleased with them that we have asked them to house sit for our next two holidays.Not only are they very good house/dog sitters but we have also become friends We would be pleased to give a reference any time. Cheers ... MORE

No rating After returning from an 8 week trip we found our animals very happy and almost sad to see us return! Our house was as if we never left! Catherine and Terry made us feel very confident that everything back home was perfectly fine while we were away and often sent us photos of our cat and dog! We would not hesitate to get them back again next time we go away, we just hope they will be available! As do our animals :)
SARAH (Shelley WA, Nov 2016)
No rating Catherine and Terry, were very good about exercising our dog, the house as spick and span on our return and we had a home cooked meal in the fridge waiting for us, would recommend them to any one looking for a house sitter.
KATRINA (Lesmurdie WA, Jul 2016 - 1 month 2 weeks)
No rating We were lucky enough to Catherine and Terry housesit for us while we were overseas. They were by far the best housesitters we have ever had.They put a lot of effort into spoiling our needy dog, sending emails of him playing at the beach or reclining on a lap. They were wonderful in the care and attention applied to our house and garden and we came back to a spotless house, all sheets and towels freshly washed with a meal awaiting house. I cannot speak more highly of their professional, ... MORE

No rating We first met Catherine and Terry through this site as we were seeking sitters for a 4 month period. We immediately both felt comfortable with them and confident in their ability to look after our home. They also shared recent sit experiences which helped. Whilst we were away we had updates and photos to reassure us all was well during our time away and when we arrived home - well the little extras. A lovely meal, flowers and chocs with a welcome home card and the bed made ready for us fall in ... MORE
SUSAN (Kalamunda WA, Jun 2015)
No rating Catherine and Terry looked after our home and dogs over Christmas, we were unsure about leaving our home and family pets in the care of house-sitters until we met Catherine and Terry and were instantly put a ease. We felt happy to leave everything in their care. They are both wonderful people and we recommend them to anyone looking for quality, reliable house-sitters that treat your home and pets like their own - we cannot recommend them highly enough! Best wishes Catherine and Terry from ... MORE
ANNA & CRAIG (& TEISHA & TINY TO) (Roleystone WA, Dec 2014 - 4 weeks)
No rating Catherine and Terry looked after our home, gardens and our assortment of cats, chooks and possums. We were delighted with the way they took their responsibilities seriously and kept us informed while we were away. We felt assured that all was well and when we came home everything was as we had left it, the cats had been very spoiled and there was even a home baked cake waiting for us. We can highly recommend Catherine and Terry and we would use them again if they are available when we next ... MORE
KATHY (Walliston, WA, Nov 2014 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating Catherine and Terry did a fansatic job looking after my very pampered and spoilt 18 month Labrador . They looked after her as if she were their own and went above and beyond their duties in looking after her and our home. I would highly recommend them to any one. I was apprehensive using a sitter but we are now planning another holiday using Catherine and Terry who are both lovely people, so much so my dog missed them when they left!
CAROL (Aug 2014)
No rating Having met Catherine and Terry before we went off on holiday we were quite happy to leave our home and precious pets in their care. We returned nearly a month later to a clean house and 2 contented and well looked after pets and will not hesitate in contacting them when we go away again.
MERLE (Kardinya, WA, Aug 2014 - 3 weeks)
No rating Hello to all contemplating the use of a sitter. We were away for one month and came home to very contented pets, clean and tidy home, even a unexpected but very welcome prepared meal. We were sent regular SMS messages which included photos. We would recommend Catherine & Terry to anyone wanting a sitter to enable a stress free time away. Regards Peter & Carol

No rating Thankyou so much for taking care of our furry children. Heidi, Tolly and CeeCee loved you and would be happy for you to look after them again another time. They told us about all the treats you gave them, and they look very healthy. We came home to a lovely clean home, and everything neat & tidy. Please stay in touch. Iris and Steve
IRIS & STEVE (Armadale, WA, Apr 2014 - 1 week 4 days)
No rating Terry and Catherine were the perfect house sitters for us. They looked after our dog, fish,plants and entire house while we were on holiday. We came home to a spotless house and happy dog. Highly recommended, great house sitters.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
