Honest, Experienced, Caring.

73, Retired IT Consultant

67, Retired Clerk

We are a retired married couple travelling around Australia. We have a 22ft caravan (30ft from end to end). I am a retired IT Consultant and Irene has worked in banks, offices, etc. We come from Dubbo, NSW where we had a house on 40 acres with all the usual animals and experience with farm maintenance. Irene is very experienced in the care of horses. We are both non smokers.
We love animals of all sorts and they seem to bond with us. We prefer rural or regional locations. We are experienced sitters, reliable and honest.
We would be delighted to look after your property, animals and gardens just as if they were our own.
More references in addition to the endorsements on this site are available from owners we have met from other sites and word of mouth.

We had Irene and Peter house sit for us inSept/Oct. This was the first time we have used Aussie House Sitters and they made the experience very easy and hassle free. They were great. Kept us updated while we were away how our fur babies were going. Lovely people. Would reccomend them to anyone looking for a House sitter.

Pete & Irene are a friendly and lovely couple. Although we had to cancel our October trip due to a family accident, they were very understanding and were available to housesit our little farm over the Christmas / NewYear break. Great communication and easy go nature made our first house-sit experience fantastic I would highly recommend them! Thank you again Pete and Irene for looking after our place (even in the 40+ temperatures!)
REBECCA (Dubbo NSW, Oct 2018 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Couldn't have asked for more care and attention for our farm animals and also our house and garden. Peter and Irene were a fantastic, easy to get on with couple. They were great communicators before and during the house sit and our farm was in safe hands during our vacation. They experienced some unexpected difficulties during their 'sit' and they dealt with these circumstances exceptionally well. Basically they went above and beyond. We would definitely recommend Peter and Irene to anyone ... MORE

No rating Peter and Irene took great care of Lottie and my house/garden. She was clearly very comfortable with them and it's reassuring to know she enjoyed their company too. Many thanks.

No rating Peter and Irene house sat from the 5th November to the 6th of December. They also looked after two very spoilt Dachshunds. They did a wonderful sit. I would have no hesitation having them look after my home and my prized possessions again. Thank you Irene and Peter
