Mature Housesitters

49, Payroll Manager

49, Law Enforcement

Hi, we are a mature professional couple working in the Payroll Management and Law Enforcement fields. Darrel is currently enjoying a well earned sabbatical so someone would be home most of the time if your pets are used to having company during the day.
We have done a number of house sits in the Toowoomba area ranging from 1 week to 10 months as well as a number of house sits in Melbourne. We are very comfortable with dogs, birds, fish and chickens and we are experienced taking care of a large properties where garden maintenance is required. The 10 month house sit was on a property of nearly an acre, with fruit trees, gardens and a large lawn which required weekly mowing (ride on lawnmower), pruning and weeding etc. We're also extremely clean (OCD) and will take care of your property and pets as if they were my own. We're currently available for house sits throughout all of South Eastern Queensland.

No rating Thank you Jo for looking after our home and two dogs. Of course she kept the house tidy and the dogs alive (haha). But what I loved the most was her flexibility. She came by our home twice beforehand to meet us and our needy dogs, so that was very comforting for us. Thanks again, Jo!

Jo did an awesome job taking care of Cookie for the week. Cookie was very calm and relaxed when we got back from our holiday as she got lots of pampering and cuddles from Jo. Jo made sure to keep us updated of Cookie at all times and we even received a few pics which is always reassuring to know that your 4 legged friend is well looked after. She also took great care of our house and everything was spec cleaned on our return.

Jo ensured our home and our spoiled pooch were treated with respect and love. We would highly recommend Jo as she left our home cleaner than we did! When we returned home late at night we were welcomed by a happy dog, milk, bread and cookies :) Thank you Jo for being so wonderful - Lily misses you. xx

No rating Jo Hart looked after our property for us in October last year. The circumstances for which we needed the house sit changed and Jo was prepared to fit in with our needs. We were away for three weeks and returned to find the house clean and tidy.

No rating Jo looked after our home, garden and dog for a long house sit in 2017. She did an extreemly good job and proved to be reliable and trustworthy. We would recommend her as a house sitter to anyone.
CHARLIE AND SHARLEE (Highfields QLD, Jan 2017 - 10 months)
No rating Jo sat for us and we found Jo very respectful of our home and very easy to communicate with. The most important part is she looked after our "Bella" We would have no hesitation in recommending Jo for any further housesits.

House Security

Safe house!

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