Maree & Peter

62, Retired Office Manager

70, Retired Accountant

Hello! Peter and I are retired professional people, living in Melbourne, who now have time to explore this great country of ours.
We have owned cats, dogs (currently a Jack Russell, who stays at home), birds and guinea pigs, and often look after our neighbours house/chooks. We would love to look after your house and pets while you are having an adventure. We will lavish love and attention on your pets, whilst taking care of your house/property as if it were our own.
Pete is quite the handyman, and he loves to tidy the garden and mow! My forte is the pets, and I am involved with a local community dog sitting club.
We are both local volunteers, me with the local council and Pete with a local school.
We are honest, reliable and security conscious, both non smokers and social drinkers, and can supply references.
Look forward to chatting soon.

No rating Maree and her Husband were the perfect house sitters. They were great to communicate with in the lead up and during my time away. I was comfortable and confident that my pets were in safe and loving hands and was thrilled to come home to happy, pampered pets and a house that was cleaner than I left it. Big thanks from Emmalee, Lulu and Elmo!

Maree and Peter did a fantastic job of looking after our house and pets (1 dog & 3 cats) at such short notice. Our pets required additional medicene to be administered as well which they did willingly. We had full confidence leaving our house and animals in their care and were so happy to come home after a long flight to see such a clean and well looked after house. Thanks again Maree and Peter and we'll be reaching out to you again for our next trip if you're keen on another Brisbane ... MORE

Is there such a thing as perfect House sitters? MAREE and PETER must surely be the hot favorites. We were so fortunate to have had this wonderful couple house sit for us recently. They provided expert care and attention to our poodle Kaspar who settled in so well with them. Our house was left in immaculate condition upon our return. They also left us beautiful gifts which were greatly appreciated. Maree and Peter are highly recommended House sitters. Simply outstanding.

Thank you so much Maree and Peter, it was very nice to meet you and we feel very fortunate that you were available to look after our house, doggies and bird aviary. The house was immaculate upon our return and the welcome home present a lovely surprise. Your care and communication was very much appreciated. We would be very happy to have them back again if they were available and have no hesitation in recommending them as your next house sitters.

No rating Thankyou Maree has Pwter for your kind words. Our garden was in a better state when we came home than when we left it - thank you so much. Evan and Bruce were happy campers - would love you to come back and house sit when we go to China at the end of the year. Thank you so much Di and Terry

Maree, Pete and their daughter stayed at our house for a week over Christmas. They kept in touch in the lead up to their stay and looked after our house, garden and animals beautifully! They even went as far as tidying up some of the garden paths which was a lovely surprise to come home to.

Again it was an absolute pleasure to meet Maree and Peter and have them sit our house and look after our Whisper. You could not hope to find a more accommodating and caring couple. The house and surrounds were spotless and our dog much loved. They kept us updated on events back home and they left us gifts upon our return. I can't express enough, our gratitude to such lovely people and I can only hope that one day they may want another "holiday" in East Gippsland. Thank you gain. Regards ... MORE

Maree and Pete house sat my elderly greyhound and cat for 10 days. My yard was left in a far better state than I had left it and my house also very clean and neat. They tableted my cat for me daily and gave his daily food supplements and also walked my gorgeous greyhound and brushed his teeth as requested. They were absolutely exemplary in their communication, care of my pets and care of my home. I couldn't have been more pleased! Would highly recommend them, and would love then to ... MORE

No rating We were indeed fortunate to have had Maree and Peter house sit and care for and love our "special" girl, Whisper. Whisper is still looking for them in and around the house as she obviously wants to help Peter chop some more wood! Both Maree and Peter did many jobs around the house and our place has never looked so good. They have left their mark on us, our dog and our house. Wine and a gift waited for us on our return, together with well chosen toys for our dog. They are beautiful people ... MORE

No rating Maree & Peter were just what the Doctor ordered. Our house was perfect when we got home & we had one very happy & healthy pussy cat, plus a beautiful new pot plant. Also a bottle of Lee's favourite wine. Can't thank them enough & would thoroughly recommend them to everyone.

Our house was in immaculate condition when we arrived home and our little dog was looking happier and healthier than ever. We are very grateful to have such trustworthy, reliable and respectful people come to our home and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for a smooth and easy housesit experience.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
