No drama housesitter

I am honest, trustworthy, reliable and will look after your home, pets and garden as if they were my own. I am neat and tidy and will be respectful of your personal possessions. I can guarantee that there will be no wild parties!
I have a recent National Police Certificate that confirms that I have no court outcomes.

I respond to enquiries quickly.
My aim is to ensure that you relax whilst you are away knowing that everything at home is being looked after.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Di looked after our home and our animals perfectly. Our home was left clean and tidy and Di notified us that all was fine while we were in Bali. I have asked Di back when we travel again. We have no hesitation in recommending Di to anyone.
KAREN (Park Ridge South QLD, Jul 2018 - 1 week 3 days)
Di was just lovely. She took notes on everything we asked her to do and left the house in a better and tidier state than we gave it to her.
She loved our fur babies and they were very relaxed when we arrived home.
We moved houses between engaging Di and the house sit, and it was a huge commute for her to work each day, but she did it happily. We received messages and photos while we were away which we appreciated very much.
We would happily recommend Di and would be grateful to have her ... MORE
ANNEMARIE (Eatons hill QLD, May 2019 - 7 days)
Our first foray into requesting a house sitter couldn't have been any more reassuring and smooth. Di is professional in her communication and planning, and shows interest in the requirements of the house and cats. She was a Ninja house sitter, leaving very little evidence that someone else had been in our home...except for some very chilled cats when we came home. We are glad to have her back later in the year, as Di is booked well in advance. We don't want the word to get out of how good ... MORE
STELLA AND CHRIS (North Lakes QLD, Apr 2019 - 4 days)
We would highly recommend Di. Her communication is A1, the dogs loved her. Both our dogs are on medication and this was not an issue for Di. Our older dog has a heart condition and when he started coughing more than usual, Di immediately contacted us for instructions. She left our house spotless. We will be inviting Di back next time we go away.
JUDY (Burpengary QLD, Apr 2019 - 4 days)
Di was such a pleasure to have looking after our dog Honey and the house. We felt very relaxed while we were away because we knew that Di would do an excellent job as we have used her before and would definately use her again. House was spotless and smelt lovely and fresh when we returned and Honey was obviously very contented while we were away. We would definately recommend Di to anyone needing a housesitter.
SUSAN (Taringa QLD, Mar 2019 - 4 weeks - 1 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
Di was a fabulous sitter. She was organised and took plenty of notes at our pre-meetings. She sent me messages confirming when she arrived and departed. She left the house in better condition than when she arrived. The animals were all happy. She even left a fresh bottle of milk in the fridge on departure!
JENNIFER (Ormeau Hills QLD, Feb 2019 - 1 week)
Di is fabulous. very lovely lady who looked after our little family especially our older dog Casper who is on medication, as well as the two cats, 1 other dog and several birds. she was great with communication before and during our holiday. we came home to a spotless house and very well looked after furbabies,. she is fantastic and I would thoroughly recommend her as a housesitter and would definitely use her again.
SHELLEY (Forest Lake QLD, Jan 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
Di has done multiple house sits for us. We always feel comfortable leaving our home and pets in Di's very capable hands. Would not hesitate to recommend Di to others or book again.
LAURA (Everton Park QLD, Jan 2019 - 1 week 1 day - 1 of 3 endorsements from this owner )
This was Di's second house sit for us. Once again we came home to happy pets and a clean home. She was very easy to communicate with prior to and during the house sit. We wouldn't hesitate to have Di house sit again (already booked) or recommend her to others.
LAURA (Everton Park QLD, Dec 2018 - 1 week - 2 of 3 endorsements from this owner )
The moment I read Di's profile and reviews, I automatically knew that she would be the perfect person for the house sitting position.
Prior to confirming the house sit, we arranged to meet Di in person at our house. Although this was still a couple of months out from our trip, Di was super organised taking down notes of our house & dog routines. The dogs also loved Di too so we definitely felt at ease knowing they would be in good hands while we were away.
The weekend before our trip, Di ... MORE
JOANNE (Whiteside QLD, Nov 2018 - 1 week)
Knowing that we had Di to care for our home and fur babies was the first thing we did before confirming our holiday plans. We consider ourselves very lucky to have had her help for a second sit. Thanks Di for being so well organised and caring.
LYNDA AND WAYNE (Heritage Park QLD, Nov 2018 - 1 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
Di was a fabulous sitter, I'm not at all surprised that she is always booked out! She came to visit us twice before the sit so she got to meet the boys & know their routine and the boys loved her. I went away knowing they were in the best of care. The house was clean & tidy when I got back & the boys were totally relaxed - a sure sign that they were happy & content while I was away. Thank you Di, I really appreciate it & hopefully our paths will cross again.
JACKIE (Cannon Hill QLD, Nov 2018 - 2 days)
Di was an excellent housesitter. Very organised and easy to communicate with. Went above and beyond leaving house beautiful and pets happy. Have booked Di for another house sit and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others.
LAURA (Everton Park QLD, Oct 2018 - 3 days - 3 of 3 endorsements from this owner )
Di was the best, such a warm soul, as soon as the dogs met her I knew she would be great. Our fur babies were look after brilliantly and the house was as we left it. Di even went that extra mile and picked us up from the airport on our return home.
High recommend Di to anyone wanting to have holiday and not worry about there pets and home whilst away.
ALLISON STEER (Loganholme QLD, Oct 2018 - 1 week 3 days)
We struck gold with Di. A charming, interesting and very reliable person. Di is also very capable and confident so we were completely at ease leaving our home and hens to her for just about a month. Di also left the home sparkling, having done more than she needed to ensure our return home was welcoming and comfortable.
IANAND NICKY (Silkstone QLD, Jun 2018 - 4 weeks)
Di was a great Housesitter who kept us up to date on our pets without being intrusive.
Our dogs were happy and healthy and had clearly been very well cared for.
Our house was left in an immaculate condition, we would highly recommend Di!
MARGARET (Forest Lake QLD, May 2018 - 2 weeks 2 days)
Di was extremely professional and patient with Milly (who seemed to be more obstinate than usual). She kept me informed and left the house spic and span (difficult with 2 inside dogs) and even offering to replace a plant that had died! I would definitely use Di for house sitting again and highly recommend her :)
SARAH (Acacia Ridge QLD, Apr 2018 - 2 weeks)
Di did an excellent job of looking after our dog Honey and the house. We came home to a lovely clean home with the sheets and towels also washed. it was as if we hadn't been away. Also Di sent a message or 2 once we had left with a photo of Honey. A very nice touch. We would definately recommend her to any prospective Owners looking for a good reliable sitter. We have booked her again ourselves for next year.
SUSAN (Taringa QLD, Apr 2018 - 1 week 2 days - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
I found Di very easy to deal with, as this was my first experience, I was unsure of the exact process. She was professional and efficient when interacting with me prior to her stay. And made my daughter & I feel comfortable leaving our home & puppy in her care. It was clear that Lilly had been well looked after during Di's stay and we would happy to contact her again when we plan future holidays.
BRONWYN (Ormeau QLD, Mar 2018 - 2 days)
We have had the pleasure of having Di housesit for us over the last two weeks (3-17 February 2018). She is a thoroughly professional, caring and generous lady who drove us to the airport and collected us on our return, accommodated and spoilt our "Crazy Critters", (Dotty the Dog, BC, Miss Kitty and fish) and left our home spotless. Could not recommend her more highly. Hope you also have the pleasure of her company at some time. ☺☺
LYNDA AND WAYNE (Heritage Park QLD, Feb 2018 - 2 weeks 1 day - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
Was great to have Di looking after the house and the girls while I was away. Can highly recommended Di to look after your fur babies and home.
LES (Algester QLD, Jan 2018)
Di is an absolute champion we would have no hesitation in recommending her to care for your home or your pet. Our cattle dog Billy was so stress free when we returned home and the place was left in immaculate condition, we are so pleased with her we are trying to arrange our breaks around her availability. Thanks Di
FRED & MARLINE (Everton Park QLD, Oct 2017 - 4 days)
Di was absolutely lovely and very easy to get along with. She looked after our house beautifully and when we arrived home Bratz and Mia seemed very content. We would not hesitate in asking Di to housesit again for us.
KIM (Forest Lake QLD, Sep 2017 - 3 weeks)
Di was amazing with our house sit. Our house and animals were well cared for with regular updates. We were so satisfied with Di we have booked her for a second house sit in January
MELISSA (Salisbury QLD, Jul 2017 - 4 days)
We were lucky enough to have Di housesit for us recently and would highly recommend her to anybody looking for a housesitter. Di was really easy to work with and kept us updated on the well being of our fur babies while we were away and took fantastic care of our home. Di was very friendly and easy to communicate with leaving us feel very comfortable in taking care of our home. We are very grateful to have found Di on this site.
JILL (The Gap QLD, May 2017)
I'll happily invite Di to return and look after my home and our old cat - Mai Mai -when next I'm away.
Di was very responsive to our cat's needs, and my home was immaculate when I returned.
