68, Retired primary teacher

65, Retired, Owner Manager

We have been housesitting for several years and have completed more than 25 housesitting assignments in the last three years, looking after private homes with dogs and cats and one farm with three horses . We have met some wonderful people in the process, making friends both human and animal. For us, housesitting a very enjoyable experienced as we both love animals and travelling to new places.

We do housesitting together and I ( Michael) also do some on my own when Anne is otherwise engaged, and I head off in the campervan.

Anne had a beautiful west highland terrier and two cats, sadly no longer with us.
I have had Collies in the past (which I used to breed ) and a Golden Retriever, and Border Collie.
We no longer have any pets of our own.
I have been an avid gardener in my time, (and once a keen grower of organic vegetables,) and so I am sensitive to the watering needs of plants .

Anne is a retired primary school teacher.
I am retired having had my own office cleaning business for several years. For the last three years I have been doing voluntary work in a disability workshop .
I am a Buddhist, and also do Reflexology /Reiki
We are very tidy people who respect other peoples property, their privacy, and their space. We have excellent references as well as police checks.
We are non smokers and non drinkers and I am a vegetarian .

Hoping that we can be of service to you.

" Michael has on two separate occasions performed houseminding duties in the absence of my wife and myself from our home.I cannot speak too highly of Michael 's care of our home ,garden and pet cat. He is a thoroughly reliable houseminder with a very professional sense of responsibility.
Upon return from our vacation our home garden and pet were in excellent condition having been carefully looked after.Our cat was particularly well and his manner towards Michael indicated a real sense of affinity towards his carer in our absence.
In personal manner ,Michael is convivial,courteous , modest of habits and gentlemanly in communication. "

Anne and Michael were wonderful house sitters, they arrived on time the day I was leaving for Hong Kong. I spent some time showing them around and felt comfortable leaving my three cats with them. They kept me updated whilst overseas and I had no dramas. Upon returning home the house was clean, the cats were healthy. They are very good, reliable and honest house sitters who keep things clean and tidy and look after pets well. I would highly recommend for any house sit.

Anne and Michael from Victoria recently took excellent care of our home and pets for a period of 3 weeks. Anne was always in touch letting us know how things were going back home. Their friendly demeanour and care given to our small pets went far and above our expectations. Would certainly welcome Anne and Michael back at any time. Would also not hesitate to recommend this lovely couple.
ALLAN (Glenview QLD, Sep 2019 - 3weeks)
Michael and Anne were great. I think they left the house more tidy than I left it . They genuinely loved the cars and were very prompt in responding to texts to organise the sit. I would recommend them any day.

Anne and Michael looked after my 16 year old cat and my garden while I was away for a week and I couldn't be happier. They gave me regular updates and my cat loved them so much she slept on the bed with them. It gave me real piece of mind to know they were looking after things for me. Highly recommend them to anyone needing a petsitter.

We were very fortunate to have Michael come and look after our house, fur and feathered babies. He was very flexible which was perfect for our situation, and very much appreciated! Our dogs loved the attention he gave them. I would highly recommend Michael for your sit.

No rating Micheal took very good care of our house and assorted animals while we enjoyed our holiday. He was reliable and honest and hence I would recommend him to anyone who needs a house sitter.
CATHY (Preston QLD, Jun 2018 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating We required someone urgently for an Easter break and Michael responded. He was able to come by himself and help out. He arrived prior to us leaving and was very polite and helpful in learning what was required and had to be done in our absence. We were able to contact him while we were away and he was very responsive. When we returned it was situation normal, like we had never left. Animals and house cared for and left as he found it. I would have no hesitation in having Michael return for ... MORE
MATT & ALISON (Welshmans Reef VIC, Mar 2018 - 4 days)
No rating I contacted Michael & Anne very last minute due to our pre-arranged sitters pulling out. They couldn't have been more helpful in every way. Michael arrived on his own & after a very quick explanation of what's what & a list of what to do I departed. There was a major electrical contract going on while we were away which we were kept up to date via email. We do not have pets but returned to a garden looking better than when we left. We would recommend Michael & Anne to look after your home & are ... MORE
SALLY (Tewantin QLD, May 2017)
No rating I'd highly recommend Michael & Anne as house sitters. Michael house sat for me during July 2016 - Anne had just flown back home so I unfortunately was not able to meet her. Being the first time I had used a house sitter & not a friend to look after my home I was a little nervous. My nerves went away once I met Michael - he is very easy going & polite. I have 2 pets - a rather boisterous old dog, and a demanding galah who Michael looked after with real tenderness in the absence of their ... MORE

What lovely people. They were so warm and friendly. They sent us pics of the cats whilst we were away and continually reassured us that all was well. We returned to find five very happy cats!

No rating Ann and Michael looked after our family home and furry friend for 6 weeks. Very pleased with their service, they kept in contact so I was reassured that everything ran smoothly during our holiday. They also assisted with taking my car to the garage for repairs and arranging dog grooming. I found them very pleasant and trust worthy, plus they got on well with my neighbours! Thank you Ann and Michael :)
ANDREA (Secret Harbour WA, May 2016)
No rating Thank you so much for house sitting our property and the fantastic care that you took of our precious pooch. I would definitely recommend Michael and Anne has house sitters and will have no hesitation in asking them both back I the future.
GLEN (Everton Hills, QLD, Aug 2015)
No rating Anne and Michael looked after our house and animals for nearly two weeks in July. They were very easy to deal with from the start and upon our return the house was as neat and tidy as we had left it and our animals were happy and well fed. We would be happy to recommend them to anyone seeking a house sitter. Regards, Michael and Tania
MICHAEL (Glenview, QLD, Jul 2015 - 1 week 5 days)
Michael and Anne did a fine job of looking after our Old Church home at Tatham. When we came home, all was in order. We hope that all the watering of our huge garden wasn't too much to ask. They were easy going and friendly from start to end. We thank them for giving us a worry-free time away.
ERIC (Tatham NSW, Jun 2015 - 4 weeks)
No rating Anne assisted Michael who was house sitting for five and half weeks in August/September 2015. They were both very wonderful with the pets and our house was looked after.
KEL & VAL (Allora QLD, May 2015 - 6 days)
No rating Anne and Michael house sat for me for over 3 weeks in October 2014 looking after my home and my discriminating pet dog. They did an excellent job of acquainting themselves with the particular needs of my dog and of the home and I was very pleased with the responsible and careful way they looked after everything. When I returned I was very happy to see the obvious affection between Anne and Michael and my dog. I can unreservedly recommend them as house sitters and would certainly use their ... MORE
