Hello my name is Tanya and my husband is Sasha, let us introduce ourselves so you can get to know us a little more.
We are both active non smokers. Our home is based outside Noosa in Doonan Sunshine Coast, Queensland on a beautiful 2 acres. It's our little piece of paradise in the country but close to beaches. We live on tank/rain water so are very water conscious. We have installed a septic waste system so have a excellent understanding on how they operate. We designed our home to be energy efficient because we care about our environment. We compost all our food scraps and recycle everything. We are extremely tidy people and take pride in our home. Our home is full of indoor plants that I have to water regularly so understand if you have some too.
We recently sold our latest business so are off travelling again. We have no children but come from a big family so we have lots of nieces and nephews to spoil. We are celebrating our 20 year wedding anniversary this year so have embarked on a year long holiday to Sri Lanka, Cyprus, Europe and then finally back to Australia to explore the East coast down to Tasmania.

Sash and I are make a brilliant team. We have successfully owned and operated 5 businesses together over the past 20 years. We love to travel and do so every year especially around April our wedding anniversary. Our huge hearts love all animals. We had a Lab cross, a Labrador and a Persian cat but they have since passed on from old age and cancer. They were a huge part of our lives. In 2017 we decided to foster cats from a local Animal rescue organisation, 4 Paws animal rescue. We've mainly helped elderly palliative care cats that can't be re homed but need a loving home to live out there final weeks/months. We have had 4 cats through the rescue organisation and even though this type of caring is heartbreaking it is equally as rewarding to give them love and a safe and comfortable place to stay for whatever time they have left. Each one of them have made a huge impact on our lives and left paw prints on our hearts.

Sash has a passion for surfing and exploring the outdoors he has recently had a hip replacement after having an accident that broke his hip back in 2011, he's keen to get back into the surf and start doing some walks in the great outdoors. Sash has many talents from being a qualified auto technician - he can fix just about anything that has a motor to being an Arborist (tree lopping/tree surgeon) so knows his stuff when it comes to property maintenance and tree health to operating different types of machinery like Skid steers and and Backhoe's. Overall he's a jack of all trades that's able to fix anything around the house.

With all our businesses we have successfully run together I am the one organising and managing him and the teams so my organisational and interpersonal skills are one of my greatest strengths.
My passion is health and fitness, I love to exercise either in the gym or getting out and exploring nature and have recently connecting myself with Yoga since being in Sri Lanka. I love to cook good wholesome food, nothing processed or any preservatives. We love going to the farmers markets every week to buy our produce and support our local farmers.

Tanya and Sasha minded our house and staffy (Jessie) immediately before Covid 19 struck. Upon our return home, my wife and I were greeted by a very happy and well cared for staffy. Minding Jessie at the time was particularly difficult for them as Jessie, due to sickness, needed to be taken outside to toilet at about 2:00am each morning. Sasha and Tanya sent us daily updates with photos of Jessie: on the beach, playing and sleeping. Our hedges were trimmed beautifully as they had been overgrown ... MORE

Thank you so much for your lovely review Trevor and Karina. We loved our stay and so happy you both were happy with everything.
Tanya and Sash were lovely and took great care of our pets and home, we really appreciated the regular updates that allowed us to rest easy that our pets were well cared for and safe from harm. They also worked to upkeep the yard while we were away, which was a lovely bonus, as it would have been quite overgrown otherwise, and the house was spotless when we got home, very much appreciated!
APRIL (Medowie NSW, Feb 2020 - 12 nights)
This was our first time using a house sitter , and we hit the jackpot with Tanya and Sash. From our very first contact we knew that our home and pets would be in excellent hands. WOW they exceeded any of our expectations, they are such a wonderful couple, so warm and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. I have a Airbnb which Tanya ran for us, which came back with glowing reviews from all our guests. I might add that the extreme weather conditions we were having at the time, didn't even ... MORE
KERRY (Point Clare NSW, Feb 2020 - 27 days)
Thank you for your amazing review and being the most wonderful owners. We really loved looking after your home and feel we've made some lifelong friends.
This is our first time using a house sitter and it is going to be hard to beat! I met Tanya and Sash quickly before i left and got to show them a few things around our home, i could tell straight away they were the right people to leave our precious fur babies with while we had a little holiday. Communication was easy, texts and daily pics and updates kept our mind at ease the entire time. Our house was spotless when we returned and beds re-made...was like no-one was ever here. Both our ...

MARNYA (Swansea NSW, Jan 2020 - 6nights)
Thank you so much guys. We loved our stay and miss Kylo and Odi.
I almost don't want to share how amazing Tanya and Sasha are so we can keep them to ourselves! I won't be selfish though, so here's what you need to know. Tanya and Sasha are exceptional sitters. From first contact until they left they made sure we felt comfortable. They are excellent communicators ( even sending us pics of our animals out enjoying life every day). They are incredibly thoughtful, trustworthy and just genuinely nice people. Our pets loved them and they took care of them like ... MORE
ANNA (Moonee Beach NSW, Jan 2020 - 2 weeks)
Thank you for your lovely review Anna. We really loved looking after Millie and Olivia and miss them already. We hope we have the opportunity to sit again for you.
If you have the opportunity to have Tanya and Sasha look after your house and pets, grab it quickly! They looked after my duplex, and , more importantly, my precious cat, Casper, for 16 days in October,2019. Thankfully, they were able to extend their sit with Casper, as my mother's ill-health extended my time away. When I finally got home, I found a very spoilt, happy and well-cared cat, and a cleaner, neater and tidier house than I had left! I really appreciated all the little jobs that they ... MORE
JUDY (Cabarita Beach NSW, Oct 2019 - 16 days)
Thank you for your lovely words Jude. Thank you again for choosing us. We had the best time with Casper, we were so sad saying goodbye. I hope our paths cross again. Xx
We had never used a housesitting site before & had only had people stay with our cat that we knew, I must say I originally had some reservations about leaving the house & cat with people we have never met. From the first email I received from Tanya when we discussed our 13 year old cat's temperament & routine my fears were calmed. Tanya & Sash were reliable in their communication & contact with us leading up to & during their stay. Every few days we received texts & pictures of Irwin who in ... MORE
