Jolly Housesitters

70+, Retiree

70+, Retiree

My wife Jan and I reside at Lake Macquarie NSW and have been married for over 48 years and are fully capable and responsible with years of experience with our own caring of house, pool, garden, pets to care for others home and animals.
We both love animals and have owned a few dogs, cats, birds and fish over the years.
which includes minding our married children's pets and house, when they have vacationed away from home.

We are non smokers

We have travelled extensively and met many people throughout the world and so quite comfortable meeting new people and animals.

We have our own van, a 5th wheeler.
L. 8 mt
H. 2.3 mt +plus
W. 2.4 mt
and used for between house sits and for travelling around Australia in our pursuit of seeing new places.

We have references from privately organised house sits as well as one from our daughter who also has a good reputation with aussiehousesitters and which gave us the incentive to join this site.

Cheers David and Jan

David and Janice did a lovely job of looking after Coco, Luna and our house! They are very kind and considerate, arrived on time, and left the house in perfect condition.

It was lovely to meet David And Jan The care of our 10 1/2 year old dog was incredible, she was happy on our return home, if not a little spoilt but i greatly appreciated that. Our home was neat and tidy on our return also I couldn't be happier

David and Jan were great sitters! Great communication before and during the sit. We did a meet and greet before our trip. Both the house and our dogs were well cared for and we couldn't have asked for more. Thanks!

David and his wife looked after our house and dog fabulously. Our dog very content when we returned. House left spotless. I knew when I met them that our home and dog would be in safe hands. Fabulous, kind caring people.

David and Janice were/are great Housesitters. They were excellent with our 2 cats, Ziggi and Milo. Milo was shy to start with, but they soon won him over. The house was lovely and clean as well. We hope they enjoyed their stay and got to see the sights of Maryborough and Hervey Bay. We highly recommend them and hope that we get to have them again down the track.

David and Jan looked after our home and Boston dog for three months. They looked after our garden under tough hot dry conditions. They did a great job. Boston loved them and didn’t miss us. Both David and Jan are lovely people, they are easy to talk to, and we enjoyed their company. We kept in touch on a regular basis, they sent us pictures of Boston. We have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for someone friendly and trustworthy. We are happy to have David and Jan back ... MORE

Thank you David and Jan for taking care of our dog "Chips" and the house while we were away for 11 days. Everything is tidy and Chips is happy and well! Hope you can watch Chips again soon :)

When we first met Jan and David, we knew our beloved snoopy, two little fishes and our home were in safe hands. During the housesit they keep us updated and even called us wishing Happy Easter. We could not ask for better house sitters. Thank you, Jan, and David.

Thank you David and Jan for taking such good care for our precious Rory (a Lakeland terrier) and the house! We could not have wished for a better housesit! Your communication and house and pet care were excellent! I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who requires housesitting.

David and Jan looked after Pippa our Akita and our home as if it were their own. Pippa fell in love with them and she was so contented and happy that we were sure she didn't want them to go. We would ask David and Jan back anytime and we have complete trust in them, and recommend them as housesitters and petsitters.

No rating Lovely couple who took good care of my dogs and house and garden. My dogs are very choosy so I was anxious about leaving them but it was such a relief to see how well David and Jan related to them, and to have a progress report that all was going well.
