Our house is your house.

Hello.......and thanks for reading our profile.

We are a retired, healthy, and a very house proud couple who love travelling this beautiful country of ours. House-sitting allows us to be able to do this by reducing our overheads, whilst at the same time taking us to many and varied locations throughout this great land. We have no pre-conceived destinations and will travel wherever the wind may take us.

We are honest, non smokers, non drinkers, homebodies and are completely trustworthy. (We are happy to supply references.) We are 100% reliable and once we have committed to your house sit we would never let you down, unless of course, something were to happen beyond our control.

We are both animal lovers and will look after your pets (and your home) as if they were our own. We mind all types of domestic animals including dogs (from very small to very large), cats, sheep, stock horses, draft horses and miniature horses, chickens, ducks, guinea fowl, aviary birds, rabbits, fish, alpacas, goats and donkeys. We are also happy to mind the native birds and wildlife that may frequent your garden and will always go that extra mile to give all of the animals and birds our full attention and love.

Our children and their families live in Canberra and much as we love being on the road we also love to be able to visit them too. Hence, gaps in our "Availability Calendar" are often for family time. However, please feel free to check with us if you see a gap and it is what you need. Often we can help, or shuffle something around.

Regarding Endorsements: Lots of our endorsements refer to our beautiful dog, Bucks. We are sad to say that he has now crossed the Rainbow Bridge and we have no animal travelling with us. Also, AHS have now changed their endorsement policy. Endorsements are now called.......Reviews with Star Ratings. This has taken effect from 01/11/2018. Please note that all endorsements, prior to this date will still show, but some with no star rating. However, if you want any references from any of our past endorsements please ask and we will be happy to provide you with phone contacts.

If you would like to know a little more about us then please give us a call or message for a chat at any time. Please be aware that because we are often in rural areas the phone service may not always be good, so our best contact is by message through this site. Sometimes our internet is poor as well so if you don't hear from us immediately you will understand why. We will always respond, and try to do this within a couple of hours, if we are in range.

Sending our warmest wishes and hoping to meet you some day.

Sincerely......Ros & Alan Roberts

We are looking for house-sitting in Tasmania early December to early April

TIM (Jericho QLD, Apr 2019)
Thanks Tim & Trish we loved our stay and we have made two great friends too in the process.
Roz and Alan were wonderful house sitters. They were very capable and everything was looked after so well while I was away. They are such thoughtful people too. My dinner was ready on my return and everything was clean and tidy. I enjoyed my break away knowing that everything was in such good hands.
ANNE (Coonamble NSW, Jan 2019 - 1 week 3 days)
From the moment I started to communicate with Roslyn I felt comfortable knowing that her and Alan were going to be the most suitable people to come into our home and importantly would love our fur babies as much as we do ❤️ ❤️ Our communication continued with updates well ahead of 12 months before we would actually meet. The day they arrived I knew we would be friends. Our home was superbly looked after our two girls were lavished with their love and attention ... MORE
MICHELLE (Mount Barker SA, Dec 2018)
We had the pleasure of meeting Roz and Alan a couple of months previous to our holiday, and from that moment we didn't have a worry or concern about leaving our 2 pets. They instantly felt like family. Our home and garden were as if we had never left, and our pets were lovingly cared for. Roz's Communication with us while away was amazing and of great comfort. Pictures of the girls every few days made us smile along with a story telling us how they were being cared for and any walks or ... MORE
TRUDY (Burradoo NSW, Oct 2018 - 1 month 2 weeks)
Wow ... what wonderful housesitters! Absolutely lovely couple who lovingly looked after our brood and home. Ros and Al have now become friends and I can't recommend them highly enough.
JULIE (Maryknoll VIC, Jun 2018 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating We were fortunate to have Roslyn and Alan to house sit for us again. They do such a fantastic job of looking after our home and animals that it is getting very hard to book them. We arrived home to a home cooked meal ,spotless house and pets that had not missed us at all. We had regular updates on our pets and our garden which is extensive was neat, tidy and watered. Roslyn was also a wonderful co- host for our Airbnb,friendly, keeping the accommodation clean with great attention to ... MORE
KIM (Mount Beauty VIC, Jan 2018 - 1 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
If you are lucky enough to be contacted by Ros and Alan and have them house sit for you and look after your pets don't hesitate to say yes. We were very nervous about leaving our 2 fur children for 3 weeks especially given their nervous nature during storms. We felt at ease very quickly because Ros and Alan treated our pups like they were their own and let them do their normal thing around the house. We could tell by the snaps Ros sent us that they appreciated the normal routine, walks and ... MORE
ZOE (Parkes NSW, Dec 2017 - 3 weeks)
Rocking Ros and Big Al (AKA Ros and Alan) are simply the most wonderful caring couple you could hope to meet. They cared for our home and pets for 6 weeks with such love and generosity and we are so very grateful. It's all the little things that make a big difference. Keeping in regular contact with lots of photos from home, meant we weren't left wondering if everything was ok. All the animals were very loved and very well cared for, spoiled rotten in fact, with the chooks getting wonderful ... MORE
GEORGIE (Monash ACT, Oct 2017 - 1 month 2 weeks)
Well what can I say, except that Ros and Alan are the best house sitters any one could wish to have. The animals adored them and the house, the animals and the garden were looked after supperably. We feel so pleased to have met them and hope that they will come again. That is if they have some time free in their house sitting calendar!! We came home to a beautiful meal and some lovely gifts that were very much appreciated.
JANE BISHOP (Kurrajong NSW, Oct 2017 - 1 week 3 days)
Hi Ros and Alan spent 3 months looking after our furry and feathered family. We couldn't be happier with the care and love they showed our animals and they way they looked after our property. Gardens weeded lawns mowed who could ask for anything more. We would gladly recommend and provide reference for Ros and Alan for any housesit. Regards Derek and Marion
MARION (eurobodalla NSW, Jul 2017 - 3 months 1 week)
No rating Thankyou thankyou.what a fantastic couple. They went over and above what we asked. Our menagerie of animals required a special type of persons, and we were a bit nervous to leave our pets with strangers...but they amazingly seemed to connect and even like our crazy crew...the property was spotless, a beautiful soup was ready for our return ...but the best they are such genuine lovely people..whoever is lucky enough to get them as housesitters is very fortunate thankyou ros ...

DEREK & SUZY (Ridgewood QLD, Mar 2017 - 3 weeks)
Ros, Alan and Bucks, their elderly Cocker Spaniel, lovingly tendered our household whilst we enjoyed a long awaited family holiday. Knowing that the house, garden and our pets were being well cared for made this holiday even more relaxing. Our pets had their own holiday as it was obvious they were spoiled. A fortnight before we were to leave, one of our cats disappeared. He returned worse for wear the day after we left. Ros and Alan went out of their way to nurse him back to good health to ... MORE
EUREKA (Broken Hill NSW, Jan 2017)
No rating From our first contact with Ros we knew we had a great couple to house sit for our 4 weeks overseas. During our time away Ros regularly communicated with us to keep us up to date on how things were going at home. Bucksy their dog settled into home very well and got on with our pets. He is a gentle natured dog that was great company for our dog Milo. On our arrival home they had left provisions in our fridge and had a meal prepared and cooking for dinner. We would be happy to have them house sit ... MORE
HEATHER (Rutherglen VIC, Dec 2016)

KIM AND KEVIN (Mount Beauty VIC, Nov 2016 - 1 week 2 days - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
They looked after our place better than we can! Ros and Alan stayed at our little farm for over a month. We felt so relieved to have them there, they keept in contact about all things happening while we were away. They were very diligent, respectful and thoughtful about our home and animals. We cannot thank them enough for their devotion to looking after our home. Amazing house sitters. I'd ask them back even if I wasn't going away!
ELLIE (Beaufort VIC, Oct 2016 - 1 month 3 weeks)
Ros and Alan house sat for us this September and were perfect! They walked, fed and played with our Labrador, kept the lawn and garden and were immaculate in the house. Most importantly we would love to have them again!
JACINTA (Bushfield VIC, Sep 2016 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Wow, it is hard to describe how fantastic Roslyn & Alan were as our pet and house sitters. From the moment I met them I felt comfortable and assured that my fur babies and home were in great hands and boy was I not wrong. Roslyn & Alan are gentle, genuine, trustworthy, loving people. They looked after our house, Guinea fowls, two agisted horses and two fur babies (cats). They have a sweet dog called Bucksy who my cats did not mind at all once they discovered he was a gentle soul. I received ... MORE
HAYLEY (Strathmerton VIC, Aug 2016 - 2 weeks 5 days)
No rating Ros and Alan took excellent care of our house while we were away for a month. Their dog Bucks is a gentle dog who got on well with our 2 indoor cats. We got regular updates and photos from Ros and Alan, assuring us that all was well while we were away. Our cats were well cared for and happy and healthy when we got back home. Ros and Alan took extra time to make sure our shy cat Geronimo was ok. Our cat Rhebus was friends with them from the time they arrived. We got home to a clean house ... MORE
JOCELYN (Royalla NSW, Jul 2016 - 3 weeks)
No rating You could not ask for better house sitters and we would love to have them back anytime. We highly recommend Ros and Alan as house sitters. They are clean, considerate, very caring and thoughtful.
