Jacqui and Tony

74, Telephone engineer (retired)

72, Retired

We have been married for 50 years and have 4 sons 3 of whom live in England and 1 in Melbourne. For several years now we have spent the English winter months in Australia. Obviously we like to spend some time with our family in Victoria but we don't want to impose on their lives by living in their house for a long period of time and we do like to travel and love meeting people and making new friends.
We are fit and active and are both non smokers. We would be pleased to care for your pets and would treat them with affection and we would always treat your home with respect.
Can supply email addresses for other references if required in addition to the ones attached.
We have in the past cared for cattle,horses and poultry as well as cats and dogs and we especially like rural properties.
We are willing to travel anywhere in Australia. We will be in Australia from early December to early March
We are both triple vaccinated.
Would love to hear from you if you think we can help you.

Tony and Jacqui are amazing! Our dog loved them immediately and they took great care of him while we were away. The house and plants were in perfect order when we returned and we have only positive things to say about their house sitting for us. We really appreciated hearing an update from time to time as well. Thanks so much Tony and Jacqui!
T. BRANDON (Parkdale VIC, Jan 2022 - 2 weeks 6 days)
No rating Jackie and Tony were the perfect sitters for our lap cat. Beau can be standoffish but took to them both immediately and was spoilt from the start. I'm not sure he even noticed we had gone !! They were very accommodating with the arrangements, keeping us up to date from the time we booked until they arrived. (They were housesitting in Australia at the time of booking). We would be delighted to have them sit again.
MARION & RALPH (St Fagans Wales, Jun 2022 - 1 week 3 days) From House Sitters UK
We felt completely confident leaving our home and 2 dogs in their capable hands. We came back to 2 happy dogs and a clean house. Tony even fixed a dodgy kitchen drawer for us! Thanks is both
FIONA (Tintern Wales, Jun 2022 - 4 nights) From House Sitters UK
Jackie and Tony are brilliant! Absolutely perfect sitters in every way. Chickens were very well looked after and our dogs loved them - so much so, Jackie & Tony are coming back again! I can't recommend them highly enough.
TRACY (Saltburn-by-the-Sea England, Jun 2022 - 7 days) From House Sitters UK
Thank you so much for your good review. Looking forward to coming back x
Jackie and Tony looked after our two small dogs whilst we were away for almost 3 weeks. They came to meet us prior to the housesit which was great, we were able to go through everything with them without the usual panic of time running out before leaving for the airport! We returned to happy dogs, garden and pots watered and healthy. We can happily recommend Jackie and Tony as reliable trustworthy housesitters.
HEATHER (Coln St Aldwyns England, Apr 2022 - 20 days) From House Sitters UK
Jackie and Tony are very highly recommended as great house sitters. They were friendly, kind, flexible and helpful (Tony even repaired/replaced a couple of locks!). Our house has a number of 'unique' or 'quirky' aspects with which they coped very well. They even put up with our vocal (rude) geese. Jackie offered to cook supper when we had to make a brief visit home for a night during their stay and lit a welcoming fire for us. They made the most of living in a new area and visited local ...

Thank you for your excellent review Kind regards Jackie and Tony
Lovely people and we're fantastic with all our animals. Tony also did a great job fixing our verandah railing and fixing my sewing machine. Jaqui rescued my orchid too.
ALLEN (Whittlesea VIC, Feb 2022 - 4 weeks)
Thanks for your lovely review Meg x
Jacqui and Tony looked after our house beautifully for our week away. Our two dogs were happy and relaxed when we returned and lots of little jobs had been done around the house! Can't recommend these lovely people enough.
SUZI (Bendigo VIC, Jan 2022 - One week)
Jackie and Tony are a lovely couple from England who looked after our house and cat while we were away for 8 nights in January. They responded to messages promptly and cared for our cat Harry very well. Jackie and Tony kept our garden well hydrated through a bit of a heatwave, which we are so thankful for, and they left the house in a lovely state too. I would highly recommend them to other people looking for sitters. Thank you Jackie and Tony!
DEANNE (Northcote VIC, Jan 2022 - 1 week 1 day)
Thank you for your excellent review. It was a pleasure taking care of Harry for you .
Tony and Jacqui were fantastic. The house was immaculate when we got home the dogs had obviously been spoiled and well cared and fed as per instructions. Tony even took it upon himself to adjust some paving that I had been putting off and waiting for my son to do. We are hoping that our schedules coincide so that they can come back and care for our home again. thanks Tony Jacqui.
BRENDEN (Dimboola VIC, Jan 2020 - 2 weeks)
Thank you so much for taking such great care of our animals and home. We came home to happy dogs, clean house and lots of little things fixed that I'd been meaning to do. Great handyman . Would recommend to anyone.
SHELLY (Emerald VIC, Dec 2019 - 4 weeks)
Tony and Jaqui house sat for us at short notice while we were on what was meant to be an 8 day trip. Communication from the first contact was always prompt , clear and reliable. Our dogs, alpacas and sheep were well cared for. The house was better than we left it with a wobbly kitchen tap and collapsing garage shelves now perfect. We had an unforeseen delay on our trip and they were able to extend their stay, which saved us a lot of hassle. Tony and Jaqui stayed with us the night before we ... MORE
CHRIS & JANETTE (Sedgwick VIC, Mar 2019 - 10 days)
No rating Tony and Jackie were terrific house sitters. Friendly, easy going and good communicators. Tony is Mr. Handyman, so many little things were fixed when we got home including my washing machine handle!! The dog and cat were super relaxed, the garden was alive. I'd go away on purpose just to get Tony back to fix all those little jobs you never get to. I totally recommend having Tony and Jackie as your house sitters.
SERENA (Brighton East VIC, Jan 2018)
No rating Jackie and Tony are a beautiful couple who house sat for us over the Christmas period for approx 3 weeks. They cared for our dogs like they were their own and really made us feel at ease by sending photo updates of the fur babies. Tony even fixed many things throughout our home and our garage, and popped on the ride on mower to keep the grass down, thanks Tony. What beautiful people these two are, lovely to have met them and of course would have them both back any time, in sure the dogs in ... MORE

JIL (Red Hill South VIC, Dec 2017 - 1 week)
No rating HELLO, JAcqui and Tony came to look after my lively rescue dog and my daughters old labrador whilst I was in Spain for1wk. I left copious notes, went away and thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing holiday knowing both the dogs were in capable hands. On my return the house was immaculate, beds stripped and Tony had mended a garden chair and sorted a phone. Great sitters who offered to come again. What more can I say?
JEAN (NEWBURY , Sep 2017) From House Sitters UK
No rating Jackie and Tony looked after our dog, chickens, house and garden for two weeks in August 2017. They were friendly and capable and we felt confident about going away. On our return, everything was just so, bed changed, washing done, bathroom gleaming and the grass cut.etc Most importantly our dog Rocky was happy and had been well cared for. Thank you Jackie and Tony for sitting for us. Kath & Colin Thornton.
KATH (Kidderminster England, Jul 2017 - 2 weeks 4 days) From House Sitters UK
No rating Jackie and Tony are very kind people and excellent housesitters. Our cats and hens were extremely well cared for, as was the garden and greenhouse. They did everything we asked of them and we were confident in leaving our home and animals in their care. We would highly recommend them and hope that they can come and sit for us again in the future.
FRANK & HILARY (Lancaster England, Jun 2017 - 2 weeks 3 days) From House Sitters UK
No rating Jackie and Tony were great sitters. The animals were well cared for and happy when we returned, and the house was really neat and tidy. They did everything we asked of them and well. We would heartily recommend them to anyone. A very pleasant couple. t
SEAN AND MARY (Warrnambool VIC, Nov 2016 - 2 weeks 3 days)
No rating Tony and Jackie , house sat for me for a whole month in February 2016. They did a great job loooking after all of my cats 13 of them, I did have a cleaner come in to help as it is a lot of work. They supervised the workers I had there. They kept my house perfectly clean and tidy and reported to me what was going on with the cats. Tony did lots of handyman jobs which he said he enjoyed. They are coming back again in February 2017. I would recommend them to anyone.
SHIRLEY (Kinglake VIC, Feb 2016 - 1 month 2 weeks)
No rating Jackie and Hubby cared for our home and our 26 year old Ms Ole Puddy whilst we were away over Christmas. The house was immaculate on return and a few broken bits around the place were even fixed, including an electric gate that our daughter had backed into! We were stoked. A lovely genuine and honest couple we would highly reccomend and certainly use again with great peace of mind.
WARWICK & JEANNE (Ballarat East VIC, Dec 2015 - 1 week 5 days)
No rating Very reliable and we came home to a house in better condition than we left. Would use them again.
VANESSA (Wattle Ponds NSW, Nov 2015 - 2 weeks)
No rating Jackie and Tony are fantastic housesitters, they have sat for us twice now for our long summer holidays and we have booked them again for the end of 2016! Pets are wonderfully cared for as is the house and surrounds, would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone whether in a rural setting such as ours with farm animals or suburban, they easily fit into any surroundings.
AMANDA (Sunbury VIC, Dec 2014 - 2 weeks 6 days)
No rating Jackie and Tony were lovely people and it was a pleasure to have them in our home. They did an excellent job and we were very confident leaving everything in their capable hands. Thoroughly recommend them for any farm or house sitting Christine Catlin
CHRISTINE (Sunbury, VIC, May 2014 - 1 week 5 days)
No rating Tony and Jackie looked after our house and little dog, Bella, in November 2013 and I couldn't recommend them enough. The house was perfect upon our arrival home and our little girl was looked after first class. They are a lovely couple with very high living standards and I would have them in my home again and again. Regards Rhonda Edser
