Helpful Happy House Sitters

41, Traveler's

52, Traveler's

We are now experienced pet and house sitters and we understand that leaving your home and animals in the care of house sitters for extended periods can be very stressful, but we can assure you that your home and extended family will be treated with kind and loving hands.

We are a middle aged couple whom sold our restaurant business and decided to travel this wonderful country of ours, and would like to offer our services to house sit your home while you do whatever your need or want to do elsewhere.

Bobbie owned and operated a small animal refuge in the USA before coming to Australia and we would welcome looking after your own beloved pets if you so need.

We also have farm sitting experience involving the care of horses, sheep, chooks, galahs, geese and turkey's.

Also, Bobbie has been a house cleaner both in the USA and in Australia. She worked for a well known Dr and his family in Brisbane over 4+ years.

We are clean and respectful and would treat your home the same as we would our own, treating your home as a home should be treated.

We will do any house cleaning or garden duties required while you are gone, if you wish, to maintain a nice clean home, ready for your return.

Bret is experienced in pool maintenance as we had an inground pool at our previous home for many years.

We are on no real time limit, being without any real commitments to any place at this time.

We believe ourselves to be reliable and trustworthy and hope to hear from you in the near future to make arrangements.

Bobbie & Bret

Reviews (12)
Bret and Bobbie are fantastic housesitters. I was away for 6 weeks overseas and communication between us was easy and informative. When I got home, I couldn't believe the interaction between Bobbie and my Timmie, (toy poodle), it was incredible, because Timmie has mental problems and she was able to get through to him, even better than I had. Both boys were clean and brushed and so happy. Even my budgie was happy. My house was clean and tidy, and even my garden was weeded because I have been ... MORE
SUSAN (Sandy Creek SA, Aug 2019 - 6 weeks)
Bobbie & Bret were great. We have a small 2.5acre property with dog, cat and gardens. We were away for nearly 3 months. They cared for our animals as if they were their own pets. Our dog has allergy issues and was well cared for. Re: to our house they left it as clean if not cleaner than when we left. Everything was spotless and in place. It was perfect. We do have large garden area and lawn. I told Bret not to worry about them too much over winter. But, he made the effort to get fuel for ... MORE
JANELLE (Port Lincoln SA, Jun 2020 - 3 months)
Bobbie & Bret were excellent house-sitters and we would highly recommend them. Our dog had been very well looked after and our house and garden were fantastic (under challenging conditions - heatwave and ash winds). We thank them very much.
SARAH (MENINGIE SA, Dec 2019 - 3 weeks)
Brett and Bobbie looked after our pet and house very well. Overall good experience and peace of mind.
ARAVINDH (Angle Park SA, Oct 2019 - 6 weeks)
We would highly recommend Bobbie and Brett as sitters. When we met, Bobbie added to the notes we left so they knew exactly what was needed for the dogs. They were happy to pick up the dog meat each week. They even managed to get weight off of our harrier so we came back to a trim dog which was great. The dogs had been bathed as well. The house I am sure was cleaner than when we left. We have had many sitters over the years and Bobbie and Brett would rate in the top 3 with out a doubt, we would ... MORE

Thank you for your kind response.
Bobbie and Bret gave us peace of mine while we were away. Nothing seemed to be to much trouble for them. Communication was good, either with weekly email update or by phone. Even when a large tree fell down over the chicken yard and dog kennels they just got to and cleaned it up. Bobbie and Bret took photos and sent them to us. We couldn't have done better ourselves. The chickens, turkeys and cats have all been well cared for. The lawn has be cared for with mowing and watering. Thank you Bret, ... MORE

JACILYN (Kronkup WA, Oct 2018 - 2 weeks 4 days)
Thanks Jaci & Jake, It was a pleasure sitting for you. We loved Finn, Lily & George and loved their interaction with us. We are very happy that you both were very pleased with your home and us !
No rating Bobbie and Bret were excellent housesitters. They cared for our home beautifully - came back to a house cleaner than we left it! They also went above and beyond with the garden. They looked after our Jack Russell Pepper exceptionally well and she was happy and healthy when we returned home - she'd had a great time with Bobbie & Bret! Would recommend and certainly have them sit again for us.
ALISON (Albany WA, Sep 2018 - 1 week 6 days)
Thank you for such a great review and such kind words. Pepper immensely enjoyed Loki, (our budgie), and she would sit there talking to him as long as she could everyday. She was such a cuddle baby and a pleasure to sit for. Thanks guy's.
No rating Thanks so much to Bret and Bobbie for house and hound sitting for us. We were very happy to arrive home to two very happy girls with a few new toys, They kept us up to date with messages and photos of Moët and Pebbles plus leavings the house in great order. Thanks so much guys sorry the weather was not so kind to you. Kind regards Dave Taryn Moët and Pebbles
DAVE (Margaret River WA, Aug 2018 - 1 month 1 week)
We appreciate your kind comments. It was a pleasure sitting your very beautiful home and hounds . Would sit for you all again anytime. Thanks muchly guys!
No rating We have been very happy with Bobbie and Bret from the moment they came to our house to meet the animals, the dog and cats were immediately comfortable around them. They came into our home and did an amazing job, particularly as the dog was sick whilst we were away. They went to the vets and followed all the medication procedures. We had regular updates / footage as to how the animals were doing. Bobbie and Bret have been fantastic and we came home to a house that in honesty was much better ... MORE
HELEN (Carramar WA, Dec 2017 - 4 weeks)
Thank you for a very wonderful review you left for us, we are glad that we could help you in your time of need. It was a real pleasure to sit for you and your fur babies, and would sit for you again anytime. Thanks guy's.
Bobbie and Bret are fantastic house sitters - extremely tidy, conscientious, respectful, helpful with a lot of attention to detail and hard workers. They helped us setting up our roadside stall every day, decorating and presenting it beautifully. We can highly recommend them as you will find your place spotless an very well cared for.
BARBARA (Diamond Tree WA, Oct 2017 - 2 months)
