We had Irene sit for us over the Easter period , to look after our little dog Sage . Irene was a lovely person and a great house sitter , she left our house in perfect condition and Irene’s communication was very good . Sage was a very happy little puppy on our return , she had been looked after very well . I would definitely recommend Irene for any house sits and we would certainly have Irene sit for us again .

Thank you Julia. I have very much enjoyed my housesit for you guys.
Irene is a great house and dogsitter. We came home to happy dogs and a tidy house. Irene is a great conversationalist too. No wonder she gets such great reviews. We will definitely use her again... in fact, we have locked her in for another sit before someone else snaps her up! I highly recommend her!

Irene was reliable and sent us updates whilst we were away.
SARAH (Summerhill Road Glen Iris VIC, Mar 2023 - 3 days)
If I could, I would score Irene 10 stars. She is a kind, professional and outstanding pet/ house sitter. My elderly pets were in the best hands and this allowed me to truly relax on my holiday. Irene listens and communicates clearly. She goes above and beyond with the animals and the house. I couldn't recommend her more highly. She is a dog and cat whisperer

KERRYN (Lakes Entrance VIC, Mar 2021 - 1 week 6 days)
Thank u for my lovely review. Very much enjoyed.
It was a breeze to work with Irene. Everything went smoothly: organisation before the house sitting time, communication while Irene was in our house; to the time she left. She stayed in the house and took care of it perfectly. We'd love to work with Irene again
RAPHAEL (Caulfield South VIC, Jan 2021 - 4 days)
Irene house sat for us when we went away. She looked after our much loved dog Max and our 2 lovely cats. They were beautifully cared for, the house was clean and all the plants watered. Irene was friendly, and looked after our house really well. I would have no hesitation in asking her to house sit for us again. Thanks Irene!

Theresa was so helpful on my house sit. Her daughter was a great help also. Lovely house and amazing dogs that were a delight to look after. Home very lovely and warm. Would house sit anytime for these lovely people and there gorgous dogs.
Irene was a reliable House sitter. I felt at ease leaving Boscoe in her capable hands. The house were well looked after during her stay and Boscoe seems to have enjoyed it too. I would happily recommend her at any time. Thank you!

Thank u Mindy.
Irene was an extremely caring sitter who Digby took to straight away. She looked after my house and left it beautifully clean for when I got back. Irene was very good at communicating with me. I have booked Irene again for a week in September.
PRUE (Ashburton VIC, Jul 2019 - 4 days)
Irene was absolutely amazing with Rosie , we had only rescued Rosie a couple of months before and Irene understood how hard it was for us to leave her and that she might be stressed . Irene even took Rosie to the vet in the middle of the night when Rosie became unwell and communicated to us the whole time while we were away I would highly Irene to look after your house and pets .
