56, Air Force - Retired

54, Public Service - Retired

Hi, we are a recently retired couple who just sold their apartment on the Sunshine Coast to start our extended travels around Australia. Brett served in the Navy and the Air Force for 37 years until retirement in October 2018 and Karen retired from the Public Service as an Executive Level Officer. We have two daughters and have had two dogs over our time (Jamie and Bindi) which were much loved members of our family. Jamie passed away in 2001 at 14.5 and Bindi passed in January 2019 at the age of 13.5, both have been missed every day since. We would love to walk, feed, pat and cherish your pets to satisfy our love of pets whilst you are away. We are travelling in our van and we are more than happy to stay in it but are flexible depending on your pets requirements. We do ask, if in the van, for level off street parking, power (possible use of our in van AC on particularly hot nights), water, toilet, shower and laundry. Our van is 7.5m long x 2.2m wide x 2.9m high. We look forward to hearing from you.

Brett and Karen are the perfect housesitters! They took excellent care of our cat Tegan, On our return from holiday we had a happy cat (usually stressed and not eaten much when we pick her up fron the kennels), a clean and tidy house and a good feeling after our first house sitter experience. Brett and Karen are reliable, trustworthy, and friendly. We had no worries about Tegan or the house while we were away, we knew both were in safe hands. Brett sent us pictures of Tegan and was in ...

Thanks for the great re view. Please keep in touch if you ever get down our way.
WE were very fortunate to find Brett and Karen at short notice when I suddenly had to go into hospital. From the first discussion I felt comfortable (may have been the Military connection). The communication was clear and precise and they were most timely on arrival. Only needed the minimum of briefing and all was done. I would have absolutely no hesitation of recommending Brett and Karen as House Sitters to mind both your pets and your property.

Thanks Terry.
Brett and Karen were great! 12/10!! Cannot rate them highly enough. Our dogs Oscar and Charlie loved being cared for by them. In fact I don't really think they missed us at all. Brett happy to do the palm frond walk of our block daily which was so helpful for us. Karen and Brett very friendly and would gladly have them sit for us again. Thank you

Communication with Brett and Karen was always quick and efficient. They arrived the day before our departure and we got to know them and they got to meet Buster and Big Puss. Brett and Karen are very easy going, friendly and competent and we enjoyed sitting on the patio having long chats. We went on holiday feeling very confident that our home, garden, pool and animals were in very good hands. They did a great job of looking after everything and kept us up to date on how things were going. ... MORE

Brett and Karen were excellent sitters. Our dogs loved them. Brett and Karen are friendly, trustworthy and reliable sitters. Our home and animals were well cared for. Their communication was great with doggie photos emailed to us while we were away. They have lovely relaxed personalities and we would call on them again if they are available. Thanks Brett and Karen. :-D

Thanks Terry and Robyn, really appreciate the feedback. Marley and Roxie were a pleasure to stay with. regards Karen and Brett
Brett and Karen are friendly and outgoing. They befriended our two dogs and walked them regularly. They were free to use our home during their stay but were well set up and independent, with their own van. We were happy that our home was secure while we were away, and that was most important to us. All facilities were just as we left them. We are pleased to recommend Brett and Karen to house sit for you and to care for your pets in your absence.
