Mark and Julie

59, Social Worker

56, Teacher

Look no further! Julie and Mark are your ideal house sitters. A professional, responsible and mature couple who know how important it is for you to leave your home and beloved pets with someone you can trust to give you peace of mind. Please read on ....

We arrived back in Australia in December 2018 after spending 13 months volunteering in the Solomon Islands.

Since arriving back we have been successful in securing 2 house sits in metropolitan Melbourne. We are currently enjoying the second house sit. Please read the wonderful review on our profile, we received after finishing our first house sit.

As Melbourne is now our new home we will both be looking for part time work, Mark as a Mental Health Social Worker and Julie as a relief, primary school teacher.

Prior to going to the Solomons, we lived in Margaret River in WA and managed a Bed and Breakfast. We had a beautiful Samoyed rescue dog who was named Ice by his previous owner. We really enjoyed our time looking after guests, caring for the large home and making sure guests had a really pleasant stay.

When we left to volunteer overseas we passed Ice onto a relative to care for and we are happy to report his life is now very luxurious, especially after he experienced not such a good life previously, before we rescued him.

We are a mature aged couple, young at heart. We are non smokers, light drinkers (love our red wine) and very easy going. Nothing really phases us.

When we house sit, there will be just Julie and myself.

If there is anything you would like to know us about us, please feel free to contact us further.

Just wow!! Mark and Julie have seriously upped the ante for all future house sitters - my house was cleaner than I left it, my garden was perfectly maintained and my pets were exceptionally well cared for. I was expecting to come home and spend several hours cleaning (as is usually the case), but the house was spotless so I was able to put my feet up with the bottle of wine that they had so kindly left for me. They were highly communicative through the whole process and sent me regular updates ... MORE

I cannot recommend Mark and Julie high enough and would definately award 10 stars as house sitters to anyone! Communication was fantastic before, during and post the house sit and nothing was a problem. We were totally overwhelmed when we returned from a long and weary flight to be faced with a house so spotless it really took our breath away! The gardens and house plants were all thriving and I swear everything looked even better than when we had left the house. Their attention to detail was ... MORE
