Life is good so enjoy

66, Merchant seaman

61, Health Manager

Note: Due to our current housesit owners returning early we are available for hours sitting after 16/8/21


We are Byron and Pam. We are a retired couple, Byron from the British Merchant Navy and Pam as a Manager in the National Health Service.
We would like to offer our services to take care of your pets and property whilst you are away.

Both our children have lived in Australia for over 10 years and now live in Perth. We have 3 grandchildren here now and we want to be able to spend more time with them and be very much part of their lives. We also want to be closer to help with support and childcare. Aussie house sitters give us the perfect opportunity to do that and to travel and visit more of Australia when time permits.

We intend to make Perth our base for the foreseeable future as we have spent time in Victoria, where our daughter and family previously lived.

We have completed a number of housesits, and. have looked after and maintained homes with houseplants, vegetable plots, orchards and large gardens requiring regular maintenance . We have looked after homes with one and multiple pets, including chickens, sheep and geese.

We have found house sitting to be an excellent way of seeing Australia and meeting people and making new friends, we have found it to be rewarding and enjoyable meeting different people and looking after different animals.

We have always had dogs in our lives, the last one was a black labrador, Lennox who sadly died aged 15 years. The only reason we haven't got another dog is our desire to travel and spend more time with the family.

We arrived in Australia for our latest visit in January 2020 and had housesits arranged for most of the year but unfortunately due to COVID these were all cancelled and our plans amended. We are now back in WA and are looking forward to resuming getting out and about and enjoying family life.

We would look after your home the same as we would our own. We are non-smokers, and are very clean and tidy. We are active people and enjoy walking, nature and wildlife.

We consider ourselves fit and well and able to meet the love, care, walking and daily routines of large or small pets.

We are trustworthy, honest and reliable people and would treat your home and pets exactly the same as we would our own.

Please contact us if you have any questions or would like any further information.

We were blown away by the level of care Pam and Byron had when looking after our two cooker spaniels and our house. The house and garden were left in better shape than when we had left it and the dogs clearly well loved. Highly recommended Pam and Byron to anyone - more than capable!

Pam and Byron where fantastic sitters! Not only did they look after our beautiful pets but did an awesome job on the house and fixed our plumbing which sprang a leak whilst away. I would highly recommend their services and will use them again. Communication was great, they sent us updates on a regular basis along with photos. Thanks again guys for all your help. X

For the second time Pam and Byron did an excellent job looking after our house. The yard is unrecognisable with not a weed left in sight! Our dog and chickens were very well looked after and the house was nice and clean when we got home. They were very understanding that we had to come home early due to the incoming cyclone.

We were so happy with our choice to have Pam and Byron look after our home and greyhound!! They really did an amazing job and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking for a housesitter. We came back to a very happy dog and a home that honestly looked better than we left it! They went above and beyond and were so lovely to deal with. We felt able to really enjoy our holiday knowing that our home and dog were in safe hands. In addition, while we were away, Perth went into Covid19 ... MORE

Pam and Byron looked after our house and pets when we planned a last minute holiday. They communicated effectively and arrived in time to enable us to show them around and allow us to catch our plane. The animals were well cared for and the house was amazingly clean.. There were a number of personal touches that we discovered over the next few days on our return including that Byron made us a pull-cord for our large bell using his merchant seaman craft-work! It was good to be able to leave ... MORE

It was indeed a pleasure to meet both Pam and Byron. The house and garden have never looked so clean. We were gobsmacked when we returned home to see the transformation in our place. They made the time to come and meet us before we left for our holiday, they updated us during the sit and took great care of our dog whisper. Thank you both for everything and good luck in your travels.

Wonderful everything was perfect when we arrived home in the middle of shutdown with the Covid 19 we are very happy to recommend Byron and Pam and look forward to seeing them again when everything is back to normal. Thank you.

5 Stars all the way. Thanks to Pam and Byron our trip was trouble free and our home and pets were well looked after. We would highly recommend them.
PAULENE (Stirling WA, Dec 2019 - 3 months)
Pam and Byron truly went above and beyond in taking care of our home and dog. Everything was left in better condition than when they arrived. We would recommend them to anyone needing pet sitters as they are truly animal lovers. They also cared for our chickens and even our worm farm. We could not be happier.

Byron and Pam looked after our place extremely well, in fact it was probably in better shape when we returned than when we left. They are coming back to help us out again, so we are delighted with that. We can totally recommend Byron and Pam.
