60s, Retired

Hi Everyone
We are a retired couple , enjoying our travel and house sitting
Rod and I have completed 86 sits in 6 and a half years in 5 states and honoured to have had several repeats , and still enjoying it very much , we have met lots of lovely owners whom we keep in touch with and minded many different animals , dogs , cats , chooks , fish , birds , pigs and donkeys , horses , guinea pigs and a snake
We are both fit and have enjoyed our daily walks with our dogs on sits so far .
Rod is very good handy man and does like to work towards perfection ..
He can use a ride on mower and rode several quid bikes and is very good with any maintenance that needs to be done . He has also cleaned and maintained several pools .
I love to potter around the garden and taking care of the indoors jobs as well
We are non smokers , experienced ,friendly and reliable not to mention easy going
We would take care of your home and animals as if they were our own and take pride in what we do so you can relax and enjoy your own Getaway
Looking forward to hearing from you

Kind Regards

Rod and Es

No rating Rod & Esmae are a lovely couple and I would love to have them come back in the future. Thanks & safe travels.

Rod and Esmae were perfect house and pet sitters. Even although our house sit was only short, they took the time to connect with us beforehand and we know our home and fur babies were well looked after. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rod and Esmae and we look forward to staying in touch.
MORAG (Eltham VIC, Dec 2019 - 3 days)
Thank you Morag , we will stay in touch for sure
Esmae and Rod are a wonderful couple!. They looked after our cat and home like it was their own. They kept us up to date on everything while we were away and it was a huge comfort to know our pussycat was so well looked after. The house was in immaculate condition when we returned and the lovely touch of welcome home flowers and card was very appreciated. I can assure everyone needing a sitter that this great couple will do a fantastic job.
JANET (Ulladulla NSW, Nov 2019 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Thank you Jan , that's lovely
Rod and Esmae house/ pet sat for us while we took a short break recently. And Without a doubt both Rod and Esmae are professional while friendly and the very genuine people. They took care of our pets and home like it was their own. We returned home to very happy pets and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for A class house and pet sitters.

Esmae and Rod were great house/Hugo sitters. They kept in touch and sent photos of Hugo on a regular basis. Our home was lovely and clean when we got home and Hugo and fishes were in perfect condition. The garden was also well cared for. We had a relaxed holiday knowing they were looking after everything, thank you
SHARON & COLIN (Denman NSW, Sep 2019 - 1 week 5 days)
I had the privilege of having Rod and Esmae house sitting for me for two, 6 day periods in July and August. I was delighted in the way the house but more importantly the two dogs where looked after and treated. There is no further proof needed than the way the two staffies greeted them both on their return on their second visit. Both Maca and Bella where very excited on seeing Rod and Esmae. Through both house sitting arrangement, Rod and Esmae kept me informed with pictures and ... MORE
GEOFF (TEMPLESTOWE VIC, Jul 2019 - 6 days)
There are not enough stars available to rate this wonderful couple. If only we had been as lucky in Vegas! From the very first Skype call through to our chats on facebook until we met them the day before we left for our holiday it was clear that Rod and Esmae would be the ideal house sitting companion for Fletch the wonderdog! The changeover was smooth and we felt totally confident that our home and fur baby were in good hands. What we didn't expect is for the gas water heater to pack in ... MORE
MIKE AND TRACEY (Upper Coomera QLD, May 2019 - 3 weeks)
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️......Thanks so much for your lovely review , we truly had a lovely time with Fletch in your home . Fletch is not just a dog , he was a good mate you can talk and he knows what you are saying . We look forward to catching up in ... MORE
Rod and Esmae arrived a day early so we could get them used to our horses, dogs and cats and just give them a general idea of what needed to be done. It also gave us a chance to get to know each other even though we had been chatting on Facebook for sometime already. From the minute we met them we felt completely comfortable. Our kelpie girls clicked with them both straight away which was a big relief for us as one of them can be a little funny with strangers, They kept us updated with ... MORE
DONNA (Loch Lomond QLD, May 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
We recently had Rod & Esmae house/pet sitting for us. We would highly recommend them both for any future housesitting. The cats & dogs were all looked after very well. It was a pleasure to go away & feel confident that everyone was well looked after. Our house was spotless when we arrived home, garden & plants all watered. We have no hesitation in recommending them.
ELIZABETH (Temora NSW, Mar 2019 - 6 days)
When we returned home we found our home spotless, we also found our cat very healthy & bit disappointed that it was us & not Rod & Esmae. Our neighbour also had nice things to say about our house sitters. We definately will look to Rod & Esmae again. A special thank you for the lovely bunch of flowers you left.
ROSS (Thirroul NSW, Feb 2019 - 1 week 3 days)
Rod and Esmae were amazing house guests. They looked after my 2 dogs. One 19 year old dog who needs looking after. They kept me up to date with photos and messages whilst l was away and looked after our house. I felt totally relaxed with these guys minding our dogs and house. I would highly recommend Rod and Esmae. Thank you guys for your wonderful care.
DEB (Berwick VIC, Apr 2018)
No rating What a wonderful couple Rod & Esmae are. From our first meeting we were very confident we had made a great connection via Aussie House sitters. Our home was lovingly cared for with all the gardens still alive ( we've had an extremely hot summer ), everything clean & tidy with all linen washed for our return. Our animals were more than happy to stay with them and I think were missing them for the first couple of days :) :) We would have no hesitation in recommending them for others who were ... MORE
MANDY (Lyndhurst NSW, Jan 2018 - 2 weeks 3 days)
No rating Esmae and Rod looked after or dog and cat over the christmas break. Our pets and house were well looked after whilst we were away. We instantly felt very comfortable around Rod and Esmae once we met them. They kept us updated with our pets and even fixed the vacuum while we were away. We will definitely be asking them to come stay again very soon!
NATHALIE (Eltham VIC, Dec 2017)
No rating Rod & Esmae gave us a lovely first off use house sitting experience. They were excellent to communicate with, real down to earth caring people. Arrived in good time ,looked after our house and two dogs exceptionally well . More than happy to recommend their house sitting to others. As well we are looking forward to seeing them again.
DENISE (Bolwarra Heights NSW, Oct 2017)
No rating Have used Rod and Esmae twice and found them to be great with our house, dogs, chooks and everything else. House always spotless and both really good communicators. What more could you ask for? Peter and Lyn
PETER (Eden NSW, Sep 2017 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating If you are fortunate enough to have Rod and Esmae sit for you, you will not be disappointed. They are a delightful couple who are friendly, conscientious, great communicators and they took the most excellent care of our pets. One of our dogs cut his foot quite badly the day before we left and Rod and Es looked after him sooo well. They took him to the vet, changed his dressings and were so kind and caring. They looked after our property so well and when we got home everything was in perfect ... MORE
MAREE (Shoalhaven River NSW, Jun 2017 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Hi Rod and Esmae, thank you for looking after our cats and our home. When we came back from our holiday our cats were very settled, so we know they were happy having you in their home, and let's face it, that is the most important thing for us. It was lovely to meet you, and we would be happy to have you sit for us again. Once again, thank you, and have a Merry Christmas.
CHERYL (Mount Warrigal NSW, Dec 2016 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating We were so happy with having Rod and Esmae to house sit for us. From the time we chose them they were in contact with us including a FaceTime "meeting". They arrived the day before we left on our 4 week holiday which was great as we were able to familiarise them around the house and also introduce them to our dogs. We left on our holiday content in the knowledge that our home and animals were in good hands. Rod and Esmae kept in touch with us by email so we knew everything was fine at home. Our ... MORE
CATHERINE (Pacific Pines QLD, Sep 2016 - 4 weeks)
No rating Road and Esmae are great and reliable house sitters who go the extra distance.They communicate and respond quickly to messages. Our House, garden and cat were well cared for in our absence which allowed us to relax and enjoy our holiday. Rod even organized a replacement battery for my car so I did not come home to a problem. Lucky are those who get them to house sit.
JO (South Melbourne VIC, May 2016)
No rating Rod and Esmae were delightful guests and wonderful with my spoodle pup who was sorry to see them go. We had some time together before I left for my trip and I got to know and like them. I hope to be able to have them back again sometime. The house was left in better condition than I had left it. Thanks Rod and Esmae. Hope to see you up this way again.
RUTH PUNCH (Woongarrah NSW, May 2016)
No rating Rod and Esmae have house sat for us on 2 occasions, firstly in 2015 and again more recently for a month in April/May 2016. They have been fantastic and we have come home to a happy cat, and a house cleaner than when we left it. I have no hesitation in recommending Rod and Esmae and if opportunity arises again, will certainly be in contact again. Regards Paul
PAUL (West Footscray VIC, Jul 2015 - 1 week)
We have used Rod and Esmae on a number of occasions and are still in regular communication with them. They are excellent house sitters and clearly very experienced. Did a great job looking after our two dogs, sheep, cattle and chooks. Rod did a great job on a number of mechanical problems he found include a leak that had been plaguing my hoist for quite a while. Heartily recommend these two sitters.
