Gerry and I have been married 33 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 Eagle Farm. 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 are now Grandparents since December 2018 to a beautiful little girl.
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.

I highly recommend Cheryl and Gerry for all things house and pet sitting. I felt instantly at ease in leaving our beloved dogs and cats in their capable and experienced care upon meeting them. There was nothing that was too much bother and our animals all loved them. Cheryl was very conscientious in making sure she understood each animal's needs and behaviours before we left and kept us updated with photos and antidotes while we were away. I sincerely hope that they stay with us again.

Andrea, thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. It was an absolute delight to house and pet sit for you and we thoroughly enjoyed your fur babies and beautiful home. We would be happy to house/pet sit for you in the future. All is so organised and the pets just creep into your ... MORE
Thank you Cheryl and Gerry for taking such wonderful care of our Tibetan Spaniel family, Tara, Gus and Macy (and our house). Gus is not the easiest little guy to get along with, but you had him from hello! It was only a short stay but we felt completely relaxed that our dogs were safe and loved, We hope to be able to have you back for longer stays in the future. All the best, Brett and Elizabeth.

Cheryl and Gerry looked after our cat, Daisy, such that I'm sure she didn't miss us at all. She was in fine fettle when we returned. By the same token, everything in our home was perfect. It was lovely to see how everything had been so well looked after.
PETER (Upper Mt Gravatt QLD, May 2019 - 3 weeks)
No rating 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 ... MORE
GYL (Capalaba QLD, Dec 2017 - 2 weeks 2 days)
No rating 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 - 3 weeks)
No rating 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 ... MORE
CAROLINE (Carindale QLD, Nov 2017 - 3 weeks)
No rating 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 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating 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 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating 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 ... MORE
LYN & BERNIE (Manly West QLD, Jul 2017)
No rating 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 ... MORE
BARBARA (Burpengary, Brisbane QLD, Mar 2017 - 1 month 2 weeks)
No rating 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 ... MORE
REBECCA (Waterford QLD, Nov 2016 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating 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 - 3 weeks)
No rating 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 ... MORE
LINDT (Brighton QLD, Mar 2016 - 6 days)
No rating 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.
