Peter & Linda

61, Retired Accountant

60, Retired Practice Manager

We are now retired. Linda was a medical practice manager for over 18 years. Before that, Linda worked as a Police Officer for 12 years. Peter is an accountant by profession who worked in Defence for 20 years in various management roles.

We have been married for 34 years.

We have owned, renovated, and maintained our own homes for 30 years. We currently live in beautiful Torquay Vic.

We have had various pets along our journey including cats and dogs. Linda spent her very early years on a dairy farm and grew up in the country. We are very comfortable in managing and being around animals.

We are looking to travel more domestically and take our time to explore. We've found that house sitting provides terrific win-win opportunities.

In summary, we offer you mature, trustworthy, reliable and caring house sitting for your pets, gardens and house.

Peter and Linda looked after our garden and house for 3 weeks when the weather was extremely hot and dry. The garden was well watered and cared for and Peter even tackled the zero turn ride-on mower! Lawns mowed was a treat to come back to! The house and surrounds were just as we left them. I would certainly invite them back again and recommend them to others.
JANE (Orange NSW, Jan 2019 - 3 weeks)
Peter & Linda are what dreams are made of for holiday it animal owners! Apart from being really nice and interesting people, they take their role as house sitters very seriously. We left our 4 goats, horse, poultry and our 2 elderly, rather neurotic dogs in their care for 9 days. They asked lots of questions before we left to ensure that they understood all of the feeding and other routines of each of the critters therefore we headed off on our holiday feeling very confident that all would be ...

ANGELA (Beechworth VIC, Jun 2020 - 9 days)
Upon meeting Linda and Peter we felt very comfortable with them as our dogs and cats took to them instanley, we left on our holidays feeling relaxed knowing that our pets and farm animals would be well cared for. On our return it was a pleasure to see every thing lovely clean and tidy, the dogs bedding had been washed and their bowls set up ready for the next feed, the farm animals were well cared for and the plants around the house watered. We can highly recommend Linda and Peter to ... MORE

No rating Thank you so much Peter and Linda for looking after little Billy and the chooks for us ... it was fantastic to come home to a lovely clean home and well cared for pets. It certainly gave us peace of mind whilst we were away, knowing you were here taking care of everything for us. We would highly recommend you to anyone looking for housesitters
SARAH (Sunnycliffs/mildura VIC, Aug 2018 - 1 month 2 weeks)
No rating Peter & Linda were wonderful house/pet sitters . They willingly turned up a day early & both Minxy (Dog) & Tops (cat) took to them quickly , which allowed me to leave knowing they would be happy & content. Our home was beautifully looked after & both pets were very relaxed upon our return. We have no hesitation in endorsing Peter & Linda for your home/pet sit...
ELLE (Mona Park QLD, Jun 2018 - 2 weeks 3 days)
No rating Peter and Linda made our first experience using a house sitter a very positive one indeed. Our dogs were in goods hands with contact and photos sent to us, after a couple of days, looking very relaxed and well looked after. We came home to our house looking exactly the same way we left it, so I can't thank them enough. Our pets and home were in excellent hands and we would high recommend Peter and Linda for future house sits and we welcome them back, when we have holidays again. Thanks again ... MORE
SANDRA (Molong NSW, Mar 2018 - 1 week)
No rating I cannot say enough good things about this couple they looked after our farm as it was their own they handled a sick horse problem dogs and a soaring drought. They took over my commitments in the town and were well respected in our rural community. Upon arriving home my house was in display condition hope they will sit for us again Thank you Peter and Linda
LURLINE (Texas QLD, Jan 2018 - 4 weeks)
No rating Pete and Linda did an amazing job. All our neighbours commented on seeing our dog constantly being walked around the area. Our house was the cleanest Ive seen it since we moved in and we received regular updates while we were away. Highly recommended!
PETER (Abbotsford VIC, Jul 2017 - 3 weeks + couple of days)
No rating Peter and Linda travelled out to a small country town to house sit for us. This was our first time using the website so we were a little anxious about leaving our house and three pets for four weeks. Peter and Linda instantly made us feel comfortable and we knew that our animals would be well looked after. Peter and Linda made the effort to check in with us at times during our holiday and give us an update. The house was left in an immaculate condition and they went to the effort of washing ... MORE
SARAH (Derby WA, Dec 2016 - 4 weeks)
No rating To whom it may concern, it is our pleasure to write this recommendation letter for Peter and Linda Hampson of Torquay, Victoria, after having them housesit for us recently. We had three weeks away starting in late November and were fortunate enough to have Peter and Linda, who we found through the Aussie House Sitter's website, house sit for us. We live on a 6 acre semirural bush block, with tank water and 2 pets, an inside dog and a parrot. We had advertised on the website, and Peter and ... MORE
GALE (Kettering TAS, Nov 2016 - 6 days)
No rating Peter and Linda house sat for us near Canberra in the middle of winter. We were obviously apprehensive as we had not used the service before, but we felt comfortable with Peter and Linda right from the start. They are kind and friendly people who are fantastic with animals. They even went out of their comfort zone and looked after our horses too. The house upon our return was absolutely spotless and everything was in excellent order. I can not recommend this couple highly enough! If you ... MORE
JACQUI (Yass River NSW, Jun 2016 - 1 week 5 days)
No rating Peter and Linda pet sit for us over the Christmas period in 2015/2016. They did a fantastic job, our 3 cats were comfortable and clearly well taken care of. The extra animals i.e. chickens and assorted wildlife (Kangaroos, goanna etc.) were also in excellent condition, not flighty or skittish as they can sometimes become after we have been away for a while. The house and pool! looked as though we had left only for a day instead of 4 weeks, everything clean and tidy. We count ourselves very ... MORE

MARGIE KELSALL (Hoddles Creek VIC, Nov 2015 - 5 days)
No rating On our recent trip to Europe we had Peter and Linda look after our house with our dog Barney and we could not have been happier with their care and cleanliness , Barney was very well cared for and didn't even seem the bit least distressed on our return . We would be most happy to have them over again to house sit for us and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to anybody that is looking for a couple to house sit for them .
PETER (Sulphur Creek, TAS, Aug 2015)
No rating Peter & Linda house sat for us for 6 weekend they did an excellent job of looking after the house, mowing a large area of lawn,keeping the garden watered and also feeding the wild birds for us. We have no hesitation in recommending them most highly
GARRICK (MALANDA, QLD, Jun 2015 - 3 months)
No rating Thankyou to both Peter and Linda. All my animals were happy and my house spick and span! Would not hesitate in recommending this lovely couple. It was my first time allowing strangers to stay in my home and they washed away any fears that i had. Again thankyou.
KELLIE (Cassilis, VIC, Jan 2015 - 2 weeks 6 days)
No rating Peter & Linda looked after our property, guests and all our menagerie. It is always great to get away, but its even better to come home and find that our property has been looked after, our dogs, cat and alpacas have been fed and are content and that our chickens are still all here, being kept safe from Foxes. It that wasnt enough, Peter and Linda looked after our guests ( we have a couple of cottages and a house ). Then to come home and find all the cleaning done was just fantastic. We ... MORE

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
