Geoff & Anna

66, Retired

62, Retired

We are a recently retired active non-smoking couple in our 60's and have lived in Townsville QLD for 28 years running a business and working as a registered nurse and raising our 4 children. We have always had dogs and cats and happily have them all as inside pets and our dogs are always exercised as we are active walkers. We are keen gardeners and also love to travel and have done so overseas extensively. We have now rented out our home in Townsville for 3 years and are currently enjoying the grey nomad life in our caravan but would like to mix this with house sitting opportunities.
FROM DECEMBER 2019 WE WILL NOT REQUIRE SPACE FOR OUR CARAVAN. We intend to concentrate on doing house sitting as we enjoy it so much and will store our caravan on the Sunshine Coast and continue our travels with our car.
Photos of our Townsville home are attached to show how house proud we are. We always approach our house sitting role with great care and responsibility.
Most people when looking for house sitters are intending on have a relaxing holiday, our intention is to take any lingering worry out of having strangers in your house. We care for your home and pets as if they were our own, we will make as much or as little contact as you wish, mainly to let you know how your pets are going. On every sit we have done we have established a great bond with the pets, they too have enjoyed a stress free time with us with all the love and care you would normally give them. We wont pester you with minor things, if there is a leaking tap we will fix it, if the towel rail comes off the wall, we will fix it, most minor repair jobs that crop up in the normal course of having a home will be attended to if it is within our skill set. We have owned many houses over the years and renovated some so we are quite resourceful. We use our own pillows, linen and towels, toiletries, toilet paper, dishwashing tablets and liquid, and all food and personal items.
When you return you will find staples in the fridge and often a simple meal to tide you over after your travels home. We do this to ensure you have had a relaxing and stress free holiday.
To date we have done other sits on where we have reviews on file, you can see our profile on that site by searching under the advanced search function for our profile ID which is rxt

We praised Geoff and Anna in our response to theirs and we could not give them a high enough score for the way they looked after our house and garden. They had unexpected challenges they coped with efficiently and with a great sense of humour for which we thank them so sincerely. Our little dog Shaka loved them and their walks together. Even behaved when they bathed him! The house was perfect for our return plus staples in the fridge for us.

Thanks for the great review, hope all goes well with your settling back after your holiday and sorting out some minor dramas, all the best
Geoff & Anna were awesome. It was our first time using a house sitter and it was great. Our animals were well cared for and loved. Our house was clean when we got home and they kept us updated throughout. Would highly recommend this lovely couple.

Geoff and Anna are fabulous house sitters. They communicate well and are relaxed and easy to get along with. They took care of our cattle, dogs and chickens wonderfully and left the house cleaner than they found it, I am sure. Geoff and Anna left us a delicious meal for our first night home and this was a very generous gesture and something we appreciated greatly after our drive back from Victoria. Highly recommend Geoff and Anna as the best house sitters you will have to look after ... MORE

Geoff and Anna were great house sitters. They looked after the house very well and they also took great care of the garden. My dog Sam was happy and contented when I returned as they had managed his medical problems well I can thoroughly recommend Geoff and Anna as house sitters
ELEANOR (Bunbury WA, Sep 2019 - 3 weeks)
Geoff and Anna are a friendly couple who made us feel so comfortable leaving our pets and house in their care. They lived up to our expectations, upon our return the house was in a pristine condition, the dog and chooks were well looked after and they even went the extra mile by getting us some staples and ensuring a cooked meal was in the fridge. Geoff even managed to fix a tap for us. They are excellent house-sitters and I would highly recommend them.
DEBBIE (Parkerville WA, Aug 2019 - 2 weeks)
Geoff and Anna are excellent house-sitters. They took on the Sit at short notice. The house was in pristine condition when I returned and Geoff had attended to a couple of leaking taps as well. Can't recommend them enough.
