Moving on

67, Happily Retired & moving on in life

72, Retired B&B owners

We are a retired couple having sold our small B&B in the Southwest of WA. We've now established a career as Housesitters (well, not new as we'd done it before). Ken an ex truckie and Fran an ex nurse.
Over the years we've had both dogs and cats. Fran bred and showed pedigree Persians for 30 years. And being an ex-nurse is very tuned in to knowing if the animal isn't well. Also very used to giving medications and also grooming longhaired animals. So far we've had exceptional reviews - two here but other private ones in the system.
Being B&B owners, we have an eye for detail and are very clean and tidy. Our property was rural on acreage so Ken is very au fait with all things in that area and is a bit of a handyman too. He can fix most things (maybe he shoulda been called Bob??)
We're "Sitting" our way round Oz. Have previously travelled the route with kids in tow so it'll be a different 'road' this time. We love all parts of Australia but especially Tasmania, the hinterland of Qld and the rainforest areas.
Please note we are travelling in our car and do NOT have a caravan so will need accommodation in your property
We are available for short periods in late Nov/early Dec & from late 2020 and prefer a longer Sit where possible so we can get to know your pet well and also the area.

Please feel free to read our Reviews. We have a Private one as well.

Give us a call - we're waiting for you!!
Fran & Ken

Reviews (4)
Fran and Kens communication was exceptional right from the start To confirming dates and reassuring us of thier commitment. We were updated right up to when they arrived. I was very comfortable our animals and home were in great hands. We didn't insist on daily updates with the pet's but it was nice to get photos and msg updates on how they were doing, considering a storm came through and we were reassured our dogs were safe and content. Fran and Ken are a lovely couple and would be happy ... MORE
No rating I found Fran & Ken to be most pleasant. They were keen and looked after the house and garden for me. They seemed to enjoy their stay and took in the local sights of the area. My dog, Echo, was happy as Ken took him for walks ( or Echo took Ken!) to the beach but my precious cat , Amber, decided she would not come home until I did. Thank you Fran and Ken, do hope you enjoy your cruise. Kindest regards, Dianne, Amber and Echo
DIANNE (Fisherman bay SA, Oct 2019 - 3 and a half weeks)
We enjoyed our stay in the little town of Fisherman Bay which although quite remote had everything you needed and was very historical. Echo the dog was very timid but after a couple of days would come to us and follow Ken everywhere. I felt dreadful we couldn't catch sight of Amber but knew she was ... MORE
Fran and Ken looked after our home and cats in April 2019. I had some set dates I needed to fill, and although Fran and Ken had already been booked for another sit nearby, they very kindly tried to shift things around to help me out. In the end, even after their sit at mine had finished, they came back on a daily basis to check that the cats were ok and feed them, even though they were honouring their commitment to stay somewhere else. The house was in great shape when we got back and the ... MORE
ALEX (Bridgetown WA, Apr 2019 - 3 days)
I was very nervous to leave someone with our dogs. My oldest is 12 and youngest 9 months and a little naughty. We had fran and ken come for 8 nights. I felt at ease as soon as they arrived. They kept in contact every day, left the house cleaner that i handed it over and even cooked us dinner in the fridge for when we flew in. I hope if we go on holidays in thw future they can help us out again.
