My husband and I are Townsville locals and well established House Sitters across the Townsville region including Magnetic Island and the Northern Beaches.

We are experienced in caring for executive and luxury properties through to family suburban homes. We are longstanding members of Mindahome and Aussie House Sitters with many excellent reviews and references available.

House sitting for us is built on trust and respect and is a mutually beneficial experience for the home owner and the sitter without any monetary exchange. We care for your home and pets as if they were our own while ensuring your instructions and preferences are met. As we do not have any children or pets of our own, our care and attention is totally focused on taking care of your home and pets.

We are animal lovers and are very comfortable and experienced with a large variety of breeds of dogs, cats and birds. (We are more than happy to send regular updates, photos and videos of your pets if you like!)

Stuart and I house sit all year round and live with our family in the Northern Beaches area between sits. We will be house sitting for the next few years while we save for a house deposit.

I work for the Australian Government and Stuart is currently undergoing an engineering degree at JCU. We're are a relaxed and quiet couple who enjoy spending time with animals, out in nature, snorkelling/diving, reading and photography.

We are very respectful of others property and privacy and are extremely non-judgemental of the way others live. You can rest assured that we will take great care in looking after your home the way you would like ensuring that the privacy of your belongings is maintained.

We can be available for stays as short as two weeks or up to months at a time. We have the benefit of being able to live at home with our family when we aren't house sitting so we are able to be flexible to suit your needs. We do book up fast and tend to book 2-6 months in advance so please get in touch early if you're planning a break away.

Please feel free to get in contact anytime to have a chat about your needs or just to get a bit of advice on the house sitting process if you're still unsure if it's for you.

Wow thanks guys. I know we weren't central but thank you for coming to our part of the world. Fantastic job on the pool etc...very diligent...our pets just loved your company.

Shame we can't leave seven stars for pet care! Kept us informed, sorted out the small problems with no hassle and left the place in better condition than they found it. Our dog will miss them :( We have already asked them about our next holiday.

Lou & Stu were wonderful, experienced house sitters. They guided us through the process, looked after our property and pets and I would not hesitate recommending them to others.

No rating Stuart and Lauren did a short house sit for me. The dogs were happy and healthy upon my return. Thanks.

Green garden!

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