Gerry and I have been married 32 years. I was a teacher for 23 years and then began my own online business of making personalised pet tags for pet owners and military ID tags.
This means I am home during the day to pay attention to your pet and give lots of cuddles. Gerry works for a corporate company in Murrarie. We relocated back to Brisbane from Melbourne in July 2015. We have tenants in place in our 2 rental homes in Forest Lake and would prefer to keep them- so currently we are now doing Pet/House Sitting full-time.
We looked at renting something for ourselves but many rental properties state 'no pets' . I am missing my furry friends and both Gerry and I love exploring new places - and that is when we quickly realised what a great opportunity Pet Au Pairing presented for both of our needs. We are non-smokers, both have our own cars, police clearances etc. We are thoroughly enjoying this new venture and at the same time gain satisfaction from happy Pet Owners. We have successfully raised 3 children( all live in Brisbane), cared for overseas students for 10 years and had numerous pets throughout the years.
We hope not only to provide you with a high quality, professional service but to make sure we love your pet/s and ensure they are settled and happy while you are away.


Cheryl and Gerry looked after our house and pets over the Christmas and New Year period. We met them both prior to the 'sit' and knew that they were right for us and our pets. Our 2 border collies and puss loved them and took to them immediately which was a good sign. What was great, was that Cheryl and Gerry were able to deal with a couple of unexpected issues without fuss - the pool had a problem, the washing machine sprung a leak and our garden suffered from some bad weather. They just got on and dealt with things. Cheryl kept in touch every few days and sent us photos of our pets. When we arrived back, the house was spick and span and the dogs were clearly very happy with their daily life ! I see myself as lucky to have got Cheryl and Gerry to house and would be delighted to have them back anytime.

GYL (Capalaba QLD, Dec 2017)

Cheryl & Gerry were fantastic sitters. They looked after Lucho (dog), the chickens, garden, pool and veggie patch! Everything was immaculate and they even thought of leaving basics in the fridge for us! Cannot thank them enough! I would recommend them to anyone wanting a reliable and responsable couple to care for their house and pets.

ANA (Samford Valley QLD, Nov 2017)

Cheryl and Gerry were very obliging and organised at our initial interview so we had no hesitation to ask them to look after our German Shepherd and home whilst we were away for three weeks. Our dog was extremely well looked after and she bonded very happily with Cheryl and Gerry. Whilst we were away, we communicated by email so we were kept up to date with our dog's activities. As well, we came home to a spotless house, tidy garden and happy dog! Thank you Cheryl and Gerry! We have no hesitation to recommend you as house sitters. It is such a relief to return home and find everything in order.

CAROLINE (Carindale QLD, Nov 2017)

Cheryl and Gerry were so friendly. They had all sorts of paperwork and ID ready at our first meeting! My house was spotlessly clean when I got home and Enzo the cat was well fed and happy to see me! Not only would I recommend Cheryl and Gerry to anyone - I plan to have them look after my house everytime I go away!

BYRON (Augustine Heights QLD, Oct 2017)

Cheryl and Gerry A wonderful and full of life couple that looked after our property and two dogs perfectly. Leaving the place so clean and even wiped down the fridge we were really impressed and would love to have house sitters as good as you all the time. Staying an extra day at short noticed was really appreciated. If there were star ratings, you'd have 5/5. Simon and Tracey

SIMON (Wynnum West QLD, Aug 2017)

We highly recommend Cheryl & Gerry. They looked after our house and dog Chloe for 3 ½ weeks. Our dog is a rescue dog and a little sensitive, she took to Cheryl & Gerry incredibly well. When we returned the house was as neat and clean as could be. Absolutely no problems at all. Watered all the plants, fed the fish, walked and played games with the dog and sent us photos showing what a good time Chloe was having. Very reassuring. Everything was just as it should be. Chloe would have them back in a flash and so would we.

LYN & BERNIE (Manly West QLD, Jul 2017)

We highly recommend Cheryl and Gerry for any housesits they apply for. Cheryl took on my small Boutique cattery with such professionalism. There was more to do than a regular housesit with approximately 15 adult cats and 3 kittens. They were well cared for and Cheryl managed the day to day demands of all the cats. I have used Aussie Housesitters for the past 11 years and this couple Cheryl and Jerry would be one of the best most confident sitters we have had. The cats and I thank them very much and hope they will be available to sit for us again in the future.

BARBARA (Burpengary, Brisbane QLD, Mar 2017)

Gerry and Cheryl home sat and looked after our three dogs and one cat for two weeks. We could not have been happier with the care that they took with our pets. The ensured that we had a meet and greet so they could meet our pets and the animals took to them instantly. It was a great relief to see how relaxed they were and it was obvious to us that Gerry and Cheryl were wonderful with pets. On our return our home was cleaner than when we left it! We went away on our holidays confident that everything was going to be ok. Thank you to the best home sitters that a family could ask for. I highly recommend Gerry & Cheryl and hopefully will need them again one day!

REBECCA (Waterford QLD, Nov 2016)

Cheryl and Jerry were wonderful with Piper and we were very happy with them in our house. I would love to have them again in March but I fear they are in much demand that they are all booked up. Trust they enjoyed staying here too.

JUDY (Jindalee QLD, Jul 2016)

Cheryl and Gerry have just completed a housesit for us and we can highly recommend them. If you want a caring, reliable, responsible couple to look after your home and animals then they are the couple for you! They looked after our animals and house as if it was their own. They went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly. When we came home they were even thoughtful enough to have bought us milk, bread and a couple of supplies to get us though the next morning!! I would definitely ask them to sit for us again and once again highly recommend them!! Thanks to both of you for looking after our home!

LINDT (Brighton QLD, Mar 2016)

We had Cheryl and Gerry look after our home and pets for 2 weeks. We returned to a home that was wonderfully clean and tidy and a happy dog, cat and 3 chooks. We were kept up to date on all happenings and enjoyed the feedback. I would recommend this couple highly.
