Hi we are both fit healthy, reliable and honest. We are absolute animal lovers and have always connected with dogs and cats. We have lived in Sydney and we are now residing in SA. At this time of our lives we would like to experience new places to live and travel through this opportunity of house sitting.

I spent most of my life as an Army musician in the UK and Australia. I spent 8 years as an instrumental string teacher in Qld. I also worked in Sydney as a registration clerk for a law firm for 8 years until I retired.

Julie has been a carer for the past few years and has worked for charity organisations before retiring 12 months ago. She has been an Art Instructor in Sydney for a number of years and is a passionate animal lover.

I can not rate John and Julie highly enough. A really nice couple - great company - they spent a couple of evenings with me prior to my departure - and did an awesome job looking after my fur kids and home. Communication was perfect - including some really cute pictures of the animals, keeping me up to date. They noticed I eat spinach omelettes for brekky and even purchased eggs, milk and spinach for me to come home to. Awesome house sitters - highly recommend. I would certainly use them ... MORE

John & Julie are a lovely, kind couple who looked after our animals while we were away. Both the cat and dog fell in love with them, but particularly the dog as all the photos we received we of him sitting on someone's lap! Unfortunately we had to cut our holiday short and they were both very understanding and accommodating with us. All the sheets and towels were washed and replaced by the time we arrived home, leaving us with nothing to do around the house. We have no worries in recommending ... MORE

John and Julie are a very friendly couple and were excellent Housesitters. Our cats were happy and well cared for and our house was lovely and clean when we arrived home. John and Julie had even ensured we had food in the fridge when we arrived home! I highly recommend John and Julie to any housesitter.
ALISON (Ferny Hills QLD, Dec 2018)
John and Julie are a delightful couple who looked after our home, our dog and our musical instruments extremely well. We spent a few nights together before the sit and in the middle and they were very friendly and easy to spend time with and respected our privacy. They extended their stay when we had a family emergency to attend. When we arrived home we found everything perfect, In fact our home was cleaner than when we left, and our musical instruments had been finely tuned!! Highly ... MORE

John & Julie could not have been a better choice for us or our pets. They bonded beautifully with both our dogs and the cat, left the house better than they found it did not loose a single plant from our garden and kept us informed with photos and comments while we were away. They were a delight to meet and have as sitters, would be welcomed back at any time. We thoroughly recommend.
SANDRA (East Bowral NSW, Sep 2018 - 1 month 1 week)
John and Julie were brilliant. We had a degree of reservation having strangers in our home. On our return our fears were totally allayed as our home was perfectly cared for as were our animals. They were calm and relaxed. The transition of us coming home was seamless. We have booked them again for next year. I can highly recommend them. They are delightful.

No rating Julie and John looked after our 4 dogs for over two months.They are the perfect house sitting team and managed all the problems that come with a bunch of rescue dogs. It was very easy and convenient to talk to John on the phone and we where very well informed, when they would arrive at our place !John thought about everyone and everything and found great solutions!They moved in a day before we left and it was a pleasure to spend time with them!While our time away,we where regularly updated ...

No rating John and Julie were everything I wanted in housesitters. And more. They kept me informed, sending pictures of my cat by the fire, and reports on my chooks. They left the house cleaner than they found it. And stocked the fridge with the basics plus more. And left flowers on the table. They even were at home to greet me after my holiday, and gave me an update before they left. They are welcome in my house anytime. It was a pleasure to meet them and I recommend that you invite them to your place.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
