WHERE ARE WE NOW? (June 2021)

We are currently in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia.

We're Leonie and Vic camping (and working) full-time around Australia. We've been happily married for 27 years. We are both originally from Adelaide, and met when Vic's family moved to the Adelaide Hills (Forreston) in 1980. Leonie's family ran an apple orchard and sheep farm in Gumeracha, and Vic's parents had a small hobby farm with sheep & cattle. We both love animals and have had many dogs, cats and chickens.

We've always had the itch to travel around our great country. Having already driven to and camped at fantastic places around Australia, a week or two mostly at a time, even up to six weeks once when all the stars aligned, we developed a real taste for camping. But it's never long enough to explore each place the way you'd really like to, let alone get to really meet and know the locals. We think a lot of people say they're going to do it one day. Mostly that one day never comes and before you know, it's too late to do it the way you want. So in November 2017 we headed off from Bendigo where we had been living and working for two years, three and a half in Melbourne prior to that, and before that Adelaide.

Far from retired, we have chosen to work from our van and find work at places along the way. Vic develops software and websites and Leonie skills are in administration, events and marketing.

We look forward to looking after your home while you take a well deserved break.

We are both non smokers.

We both have:
National Police Checks
Working with Children Cards

Cheers, Vic & Leonie

Vic and Leonie have been the perfect house sitters. Our baby girl puppy was spoilt with love and affection and we received many pics and updates on her whilst we traveled. They took wonderful care of our home, and I'm sure it's never looked so clean. We very highly recommend these two wonderful people to take care of all that you love, whilst you have a stress free holiday. The welcome home treats were unexpected but so lovely.

We couldn't rate Vic and Leonie more highly - they took house sitting to the next level! The house and garden were cleaner and tidier than when we left them, the cat was spoilt and the communication was great. The welcome home gifts were a lovely, thoughtful touch. Highly recommended. Thanks again, Vic and Leonie

Leonie and Vic took great care of our pets whilst we were away. The communication was fantastic. The house looked immaculate on our return and the garden was very well taken care off. Wewould not hesitate asking them to look after our pets again and we highly recommend them.

Vic and Leonie are awesome sitters. They cared for our pets like they were our own. In fact our dogs were a bit miserable not having us around all the time when we got home. They were spoilt. Our home was kept beautifully and our plants all survived. Not to mention the beautiful wine and platter that we thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you Vic and Leonie we really appreciated your care and kindness.

I can't give Vic and Leonie enough stars! They took amazing care of our furry family while we were away and I received regular updates during that time, along with photo updates too. Upon our return the house was immaculate and a little welcome home pack was also there for us too. My only concern was that they'd taken my dog with them when they left as they found a big soft spot for her! They went above and beyond with their care of our house and farm and couldn't be happier with ... MORE

These guys are the beez kneez, Best thing since sliced bread. My wife and I thought we had the place up to scratch before we left but these two went above and beyond in looking after our place. Even thought I had a new Weber!! Our chickens weren't doing their job when we left but with Vic and Leonies care they turned the chickens around and got them doing what they are supposed to do. Garden care was immaculate and Vic wasn't happy when close to our return I told him not to worry about ... MORE

We recently returned home after an absence of 7 weeks and were delighted to find the house immaculate and garden had been well tended..Our level of delight escalated when we found wine, bowls of fruit ,,bread and a box of chocolates laid out on the table for our return. The fridge was also stocked with eggs, milk and vegetables.My indoor plants were looking healthy and the garden and lawn had obviously been well looked after. Vic maintained good contact with us and sent occasional photos to let ... MORE

Thank you so much for the glowing review Lesley and Hank! It was a pleasure looking after your beautiful home and garden. Your wildflowers are beautiful! We would love to stay again if we're around! Keep in touch, Vic and Leonie
Vic and his wife Leonie were our first experience with Aussie House Sitters and we are now total converts to this wonderful service. After numerous attempts to secure a house-sitter by other means we just 'jagged' this site (courtesy of 'Google') and Vic was our first (and almost immediate) contact. Communication about our requirements and expectations was excellent from the beginning. They both made themselves available to discuss the workings of the house and garden and any special ... MORE

Thank you so much Susan and Andrew. It was an absolute pleasure looking after your house and Issy. Any time you decide to head off again, please give us a call and if we're anywhere near Albany, we'll be back! Cheers, Vic and Leonie
Vic and Leonie were simply fantastic. I was at ease my whole holiday knowing my cat Tom and my home were in the best capable hands of Vic and Leonie. I was away for 3 weeks, which was a long time to be away from my fur baby, but they treated him with so much love and attention I had nothing to worry about. Vic sent photos and videos of my Tom cat and he looked so happy and content, I actually think he missed them when they left. The house was immaculate and the gardens well looked ... MORE

Make sure the garden and pot plants are thriving when you get back - get a house sitter.
