****EDIT: We have just completed our 6th year of house sitting full-time. As testimony to our house sitting prowess and proof of very happy and satisfied home owners, our calendar is usually filled with return house sits each year in advance. We take great pride, and have the utmost respect for your property and/or pets. You will not be disappointed.*****

** We are an active, mature, quiet + clean living, friendly couple.
** We are honest, trustworthy and ultra-reliable.
** We are respectful of your home and belongings.
** We will keep your home and belongings safe and secure.
** We have always owned and maintained our own home and property - including the upkeep and maintenance of the buildings, gardens, lawns and swimming pool etc.
** As homeowners we are well used to caring for and maintaining a property, and dealing with any issues that arise.
** We are very house proud and will tend to your home and gardens as if they are our own.
** We will be completely respectful of your home and any 'rules' you have for taking care of it and your pets.
** We like to be at home, cooking, reading, relaxing or pottering in the yard so your home and pets will not be left alone for any length of time.
** We won't treat sitting your home as a holiday, we'll take our obligation to you very seriously.
** We are responsible, level headed, flexible and love animals.
** Above all, we are competent, reliable and happy people with a sense of humour and common sense to match.

***We have clean Police Checks and great reviews from previous house sitting assignments***
** We are animal lovers and in our 30+ years of marriage have had a gorgeous tortoise shell cat named Basil (she lived to 21 years) and a magnificent Pomeranian named Freddy
(a rescue dog who we absolutely adored, but sadly passed away aged 17.5 years).
** We have always loved and spoilt our pets and think of them as family. We will lovingly care for and pamper your pets too - we will feed, wash, groom, walk, pat and play with them. They will be happy, healthy and content upon your return.
** We miss having pets in our life so it would be an absolute joy to love and look after yours while you are away. House sitting offers the wonderful opportunity to be "foster parents", helping to fill the void left in our lives since our dear pets have departed.

** Collect and/or redirect mail.
** Do any odd jobs if required.

I have known Lynette and Phillip for over 10 years and I can't think of anyone better to house sit and mind your pets. We can go away with peace of mind knowing all will be well upon our return. They are mega animal lovers, which is just as well because we have a menagerie of animals - 4 dogs of various sizes and ages (2 requiring twice daily medication), 2x cats (Ragdoll and Maincoon) and numerous birds in an aviary. We also have a pool that gets maintained to perfection whenever we are away. They are incredibly respectful, thoughtful, honest and generous. They are extremely dependable and trustworthy, always willing to help out and go the extra mile. Our place usually looks better than when we left it and the pets are always happy and content (almost sad to see them go!). I would have them house or pet sit for me in a heartbeat!

Nick and Sue

We are delighted to recommend Phillip and Lynette as house sitters. Phillip and Lynette are the most wonderful couple you could hope to meet - they are friendly, honest, reliable, organised and trustworthy. They clearly love animals and animals love them! The manner in which they approached our house sit was at all times respectful, mature and professional.

We left for our trip feeling confident that they would take good care of our animals and property and we were not disappointed. From the start they were very professional and quickly knew the routines of our pets. We were provided with weekly updates on how things were going while we were away, and any issues which arose were promptly and competently dealt with.

We returned home to find our property exceptionally maintained both inside and out - the house was sparkling clean, the lawns were mown, our garden beds were well maintained, our pool was sparkling clean, and most importantly our pets were happy and healthy.

They took extra special care of our house and our dogs - most importantly to us, our dogs were looked after, pampered and loved (spoilt rotten actually). They were taken to the local beach or nature reserve for exercise and frolicking every day.

We honestly believe you will not find a more diligent and caring couple than Phillip and Lynette and we have no hesitation in recommending them to other home owners. You can be assured of complete peace of mind when Phillip and Lynette are looking after your property while you are away.

We hope they will always be able to come back to us because we were absolutely thrilled with the job they did for us.

Bevan and Liana

This was the first time we used a house sitter so we were nervous about having strangers come into our home but we need not have worried. We felt comfortable and relaxed with Phillip and Lynette from the moment we met them. They are friendly, mature, honest and trustworthy and made a great effort to understand the house and the routines of our dogs before we left. They stayed in regular contact to ensure we were kept up-to-date on how things were going at home in our absence. We came back to a house that was absolutely spotless from top to bottom and the lawns and gardens were immaculate. We would happily ask them to house sit for us again, both to look after our property and our pets and have no hesitation in recommending them to others who are looking for fantastic housesitters. We hope they don't get too busy to come back to us next year!

Graham and Rachel

Phillip and Lynette are a lovely, friendly couple who looked after our home and dogs while we were in Europe for six weeks.

Having not used house sitters before we were a little anxious to leave the care of our house and 2 dogs to people we did not know. However, given their friendly, honest and open demeanour Phillip and Lynette made the experience easy. The whole process from beginning to end was seamless. When we returned home the house was tidy and our two dogs happy & content. They had made us a meal which was greatly appreciated after a long flight home. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Phillip and Lynette for any house sitting assignment. Oh, and we really enjoyed their company as well, for the short time we spent together with them. They are quiet people but have a really great sense of humour.

Our dogs clearly loved them and you could not find a lovelier couple to care for your home and pets while you are away - you'll be asking them to come back - we promise!

The best house sitters we have ever had, our pets were happy, the garden was well kept and the house was spotless. Lynette kept in contact with us throughout our holiday, sending pics and updating us on the welfare of our babies. What a wonderful couple who truly treated our home and animals as if they were their own. Thank you!

No rating COVID sort of interupted these plans but we managed a month trip to Brisbane and Lynette & Phillip were available. They were fantastic in all respects, easy to communicate with and nothing was a problem. They looked after everything perfectly and better. You could not ask for a better couple to look after your home. Looking forward to having them again.
MARK (PEERAMON QLD, May 2020 - 1 month)
Lynette and Phillip did a wonderful job looking after our house and fur kids, x2 dogs, cat, chicken and tank of goldfish, for three weeks. They are lovely people who take on looking after your pets and property very seriously. There were a couple of plumping issues while we were away and Lynette and Phillip had it all rectified prior to us getting home. The dogs loved their company and seemed a little sad that they had left. A lovely touch by Lynette and Phillip was leaving us with a prepared ... MORE
PAULA (Braidwood NSW, Apr 2019)
No rating Anyone would be very lucky to have Lynette and Philip do your home sit. Our home and garden was beautifully cared for, and left in a better condition than we were able to leave it for them, after our 5 week trip away. Our two cats were loved and spoilt by this loving couple, and our aviary of birds also were very well taken care of for us. When we were overseas, photos and information about our garden and pets was emailed to us and that helped us to relax and know all was fine at home. I would ... MORE
GAYLE MORRISON OF MONTVILLE (Montville QLD, Oct 2017 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating We recently had Lynette & Phillip housesit for us while we were on an extended 7 month trip. What can I say. They were amazing. We were able to totally relax knowing that our home was in good hands. They are a lovely couple and kept our house, pool, yard & gardens in pristine condition. They even went above the call of duty to sort out a telstra problem we had! We came home to an immaculate house & yard, even some extra plants in the garden which was wonderful & a sparkling pool. We opened the ... MORE
GAIL (Redlynch Valley/Cairns QLD, Feb 2017 - 2 months 1 week)
No rating Lynette and Phillip housesat for me over the December/January period, this year. I cannot speak, too highly of them and their care of my home and my cat. I returned home to a very clean home and a very happy cat. I would be happy to have them housesit for me again sometime in the future and very glad to recommend them as excellent house/pet sitters.
JANELLE (Victoria Point QLD, Dec 2016)
No rating Lynette and Phillip came to sit for us Nov 2016 - arriving in torrential rain and cyclonic winds they must have wondered what they were in for. Thankfully for us they stayed and I cannot rate them highly enough. Our rottie x was exercised and bonded with both Lynette and Phillip well, obviously dog people as he was well taken care of in our absence. Our home was left immaculately clean and tidy, with a bonus of relishes made from fruit in our garden. Lynette and Phillip were wonderful honest ... MORE
WENDY (Cooloola Cove QLD, Nov 2016)
No rating Phillip and Lynette house sat our home in Bundaberg QLD and our 2 year old Toy Poodle Chester for 5 weeks whilst we were overseas during Christmas 2015. From the first time that we saw Phillip and Lynette's profile on Aussie House Sitters we knew that we wanted them to take care of Chester and hour home while we were away. We first met them about 8 months prior to our departure and knew from that first face to face meeting that we would have 100% peace of mind. Chester immediately took to the ... MORE

No rating Lynette and Phillip were excellent house sitters. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them. The dog was well cared for and the house was immaculate when we returned.
JUDITH (Oyster Cove TAS, Nov 2015)
No rating Paul and myself were so blessed to have had such a lovely couple Lynette and Phillip look after our fury kids and our house. It was such a pleasure going away on holidays knowing our animals were taken good care of because they loved our pets as if they were their own. Patch knew straight away they were good people which made it easier to go on our holiday as he didn't pine and threat whilst we were away. And it was a real treat to come back home to 2 happy fury kids and a lovely clean house. ... MORE
PAUL&ROMI (Hervey Bay QLD, Oct 2015 - 3 days)
No rating I would happily and confidently refer Phillip and Lynette to look after any ones home and pets while they are away. We were so happy on return from our holiday when they looked after our home, garden and precious Dusty dog. We could tell how much Dusty liked them and our home and garden looked better when we got back then when we left it. We are so happy that they are able to house sit, dog sit, and new additions fish sit again for us while we are away for a month in Canada. I would ... MORE
MARGARET (North Lakes, QLD, Aug 2015 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating Lynette and Phillip looked after our house, pool, garden and two dogs while we were away for six and a half weeks. Lynette kept in touch during out absence and sent pics of our dogs to keep us up to date. While we were away, Brisbane experienced a 'once in a lifetime' deluge and Lynette and Phillip cleaned up after this to the extent that you wouldn't have known it had occurred. On return, our house was spotlessly clean as were our dogs. They also made sure there were basic provisions for ... MORE
DIANNE AND RICHARD (Carseldine, Brisbane, QLD, Aug 2015)
No rating All our worries were gone when we met Lynette and Phillip.They are wonderful,friendly people and can be totally trusted to take care of your animals and your home.We were away for almost 2 months and came home to find our puppies totally spoilt and our house looked like the cleaning fairies had dropped by.They had even made us dinner which was great as after a long flight toast was going to be on our menu. If anyone is looking for housesitters then we suggest you give Lynette and Phillip a ... MORE
LESLEY AND BRUCE (Orange NSW, Jul 2015)
No rating Lynette and Phillip house sat our remote property in the Snowy Mountains for June and July. It is hard not to sound over effusive but they were just wonderful. Handled every challenge that came up (frozen pipes, near impassable roads, burst water taps etc) with aplomb. When they left the house was immaculate and the horses distressed at not getting their daily treats any more. We just wish we could have Lynette and Phillip full time. To say we highly recommend them would be an ... MORE
PATRICIA (Adaminaby, NSW, Jul 2015)
No rating If you are fortunate enough to be able to secure the service of this amazing couple, then you will be forever grateful. Lynette and Phillip are the perfect house and pet sitters. From the moment we met them, we felt totally at ease and secure that our home and pampered pets were going to be well looked after - and we were right! We are so grateful for the care they showed our dogs (and I'm sure that the dogs were a bit disappointed when we returned!), as well as the care of our home. Our ... MORE
