More personal info... Danielle:
I'm a professional, usually contracting to government clients helping them build better websites. I'm also currently doing my Masters by research on how are gender and sexuality experienced, understood and 'managed' within and through 'leadership' in the context of sport organisations in Australia. I do all this remotely so I mostly work from home.

More personal info... Charlie:
I'm a pool technician, which is just a fancy way to say pool cleaner, so if you have a pool that needs taking care of while we're looking after your home, you're in luck. I also have a green thumb and love spending time in the garden.

Both of us:

We love animals, have had pets all our lives and we're non-smokers and vegetarian (though we certainly don't have any issue with feeding meat to your pets). We will care for your fur / feathered / scaled babies as if they were our own. Danielle also has plenty of experience with horses.

We've been on this site for over 2 years now and have been taking care of pets and places of many friends and acquaintances much longer than that. We also get many sits through word of mouth. We can also provide a police check.

Our recent house and pet sits include:
*Hobart looking after 2 gorgeous dogs plus a pool and massive vege garden.
* Blacktown with 5 (yes 5!) rescue dogs all needing special care and medication.
* Darwin with 2 dogs, 4 cats plus pool cleaning duties.
*Melbourne with 2 dogs and a bird.
* Sydney with a cat, a rabbit, a cockatiel and 7 chickens.
* Sydney with 2 very hyperactive toy poodles.
* Brisbane with a 14 year old Jack Russell.
* Just outside Brisbane with 2 puppies, 17 chickens and a cat.
* Mount Glorious with an old dog and a cat and pool cleaning.
*Tambourine Mountain with 2 rescue dogs.
*Cornubia with 2 dogs, 2 cats and 6 chickens plus pool cleaning.
*France (oh la la!) with 2 horses, 3 dogs, 2 cats and more ducks and chickens than you can count.
*McLaren Vale with the worlds most adorable labrador.
*Port Willunga with a loveable Australian bulldog and 2 siamese cats.
*Port Willunga with a very handsome golden retriever.
*Currently in Clifton Springs with two spritely old cocker spaniels.

Dan and Charlie have been the best house sitters we have had so far. In fact , our nine and a half year old Labrador, Winnie, looked healthier on our return. We have already recommended them to friends of ours. The pool was in great shape and the house was excellent. They also communicated regularly with us while we were away. We could not recommend them highly enough and we will continue to be in regular contact with them.
 
TIM AND CYD (The Range SA, Aug 2019 - 9 weeks)
Dan and Charley were excellent house sitters who looked after Jacaux, our Golden Retriever as if he were their own. They established a great rapport with him taking good care of him, giving him lots of love, taking him for long walks and playing with him - a beautifully brushed dog greeted us when we got back. Dan and Charley also took great care of our house which was spotless on our return. They watered the garden and kept the plants alive through a few very hot days. Charley cooked a ... MORE
 
ROBERT (Port Willunga SA, Nov 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
Danielle and Charlie are five star house sitters. Communication before and during the sit was excellent and when I got home the house was very clean and tidy, the garden had been watered, my Bulldog and 2 Siamese cats were well looked after and I was very touched by the home cooked meal and milk in the fridge. I can't praise them enough; they are thoughtful caring people. Thank you so much for your help.
 
CLARE (Port Willunga SA, Nov 2019 - 10 days)
Wow this was our first experience with Aussie House Sitters and to say we were amazed is an understatement. Danielle and Charli were the very best house sitters we could have hoped to have in our home. They treated our animals like family members and home like it was a palace. We received updates regularly about the pets and the house. When we arrived home every one of our pets had clearly been well cared for and cuddled as often as they desired. Our home was clean and tidy AND we had ... MORE
 
SARAH (Cornubia QLD, Mar 2019 - 4 weeks)
Danielle and Charlie did a great job caring for my 2 dogs for 2 weeks. I needed sitters with experience walking and caring for bigger dogs with some quirky behaviors and they were just that. They came to meet us before the house sit which I really liked. My dogs were relaxed around them and Charlie and Danielle both genuinely enjoy the company of dogs. They were trustworthy, reliable and good communicators. After I returned, numerous neighbors made very positive comments about them out ... MORE
 
JANEECE (Tamborine Mountain QLD, Feb 2019)
We'd have 'em back in a shot if only they had time!!!
 
CHRISTINE AND PHIL (Highvale QLD, Jan 2019 - 2 weeks)
So very happy with everything that Danielle and Charlie did for our pets and home whilst we were away. We knew that our pets would be loved and they even did a few jobs for my elderly Mother which was very much appreciated. Would have them house sit again for us in a heartbeat.
 
KIM (Fernvale QLD, Dec 2018)
Charlie and Dan were an absolute dream to deal with. My animals adored them and every instruction I left about their care was followed perfectly. I felt assured and confident from our first exchange that I was dealing with experienced and caring professionals who have great respect for others space, skills to maintain it and a great affection for and awareness of animals. As a bonus to all that, I had mentioned in passing that I had a house inspection the day I returned, I came home to ... MORE
 
KITA (Goonellabah NSW, Nov 2018)
Happy to recommend Danielle and Charlie. It was our first time using this service and they were great at helping us through the process. Communication was excellent and house and fur baby all well cared for. We definately would use them again if the need arises.
 
NATALIE (Padstow NSW, Jul 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating Danielle and Charlie stayed at our house and looked after our precious dog and cat for us. They were always prompt with their communication with us and when we met Danielle and Charlie we immediately felt at ease with having them come into our home. Danielle and Charlie left the house in perfect condition and the animals were well cared for. They even sent us updates and photos during their stay. I highly recommend these lovely girls.
LOUISE (Avalon Beach NSW, Apr 2018 - 2 days)
No rating There are no words that can describe my gratitude towards Danielle and Charlie. The girls looked after my Staffie & cat just like I would. From the minute I met them I knew they were perfect. I truly relaxed on my holidays for the first time in years because I knew my animals were looked after really well and that they were being spoilt & loved during my absence. My place was spotless which again made my holiday so much easier. I am hoping that I can book these two ladies again during my next ... MORE
LUCIA (Curl Curl NSW, Apr 2018 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating Danielle and Charlie were wonderful and I cannot recommend them highly enough. We were anxious about going away as one of our dogs requires extra care and regular medications however these gorgeous girls managed to alleviate all of our worries. Dan and Charlie cared so beautifully for our two dogs, bird and home, sending us regular updates of our beloved pets. Upon returning from our holidays our house was spotless and this is not as easy task as we have a very messy bird! Thank you again Dan ... MORE
THERESA VANDERWYK (Aspendale VIC, Mar 2018 - 5 days)
No rating We came home to a spick and span house and the pool never looked cleaner! All the animals looked very healthy and loved. Will definitely have Dan and Charlie back when we take our next trip.
