Proud of our service

68, Retired

55, Retired

We are a retired couple who don't want to settle down yet . Due to health issues in late 2011we decided at the time to sell up and downsize and travel.the 1st year we have traveld in America , Europe and Asia . After returning to Australia we decided to try house and pet sitting . We have enjoyed every minute of it and will be doing just this for a while . My working live has centered around working with animals , both wild and domesticated species . With the exception of reptiles ( meaning Snakes ) I am competent in caring for all .
Even in our private live we alwise had dogs, cats , birds , fish and others as pets . Our hobbies are of course traveling , nature photography , reading ,
Bush walking and gardening in particular if time permits growing vegetables .
My wife has had 30 or so years experience in maintaining houses in a professional capacity .
We are absolutely not party people , don't smoke or drink and we enjoy each other's company . We are very house proud , reliable and caring house sitters. We have excellent references and police check . During a sitting we keep in contact with our host by e mail or Skype on I pad . We will never be away overnight and if we have to go out during the day the time is keept to a minimum.If we are on a hosts shortlist for the particular sitting we prefere to meet with the host prior to making any decision to talk about the sitting in more detail. We feel it is important that each side is comfortable with each other . Meeting the pets is also important and they also will show what they feel .This of course is only possible if we are not to far way. If that is the case we like to make contact by Facebook messenger .Please note - We use two housesitting websites and therefor cant register dates when we are free . Also dependig on the location of our sitting we will only do sittings of 4 weeks or more.That is due to translocation cost.

No rating I can thoroughly recommend Ernst and An . After having to return home early due to an accident they were terrific. They managed to arrange another house sit and left our house in such great condition there was nothing to do. I found them very caring and considerate
LINDA (Gnarwarre VIC, Aug 2018 - 2 months 2 weeks)
No rating April 2018. Ernst and An were our first time house sitters. We read all their endorsements, and Ernst and An were all that was claimed. They made a large detour to meet us prior to engagement. We invited them to stay that night as well as the day before and after our time away. They are such good company, easy-going and yes, the dogs were instantly relaxed. While away we were regularly updated with photos of the dogs (as well as other wildlife)and happenings around the house and ... MORE
SUE (Illaroo NSW, Mar 2018)
No rating What can I say? From the moment Ernst and Ann walked into our home we knew that our pets would be in good hands. Ernst and Ann had a great way of "going with the flow" whilst we were busy packing and made themselves right at home with our doggie friends instantly curled up at their feet. Ernst and Anne are genuine animal lovers and the attention given to our pets whilst we were there and of course whilst we were away, was heartwarming and comforting to see. In addition to those great qualities ... MORE
KEZ (Clifton springs VIC, Jan 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating Ernst and An looked after our house and our two paw kids Lucy the Beagle and Lady McBeth who is a cat that believes she is actually a person. From the moment we met Ernst and An we knew we would be able to fly away with every confidence that we were leaving things in the safest of hands. They more then met our expectations, the house and the garden were beautifully looked after and Lucy and Lady were not only well looked after they were happy and content. We knew the animals were having fun ... MORE
MEG AND RAY (Port Elliot SA, Feb 2017 - 4 weeks)
No rating Wow what can we say. We were very fortune to have Ern and An look after our Bella girl for 3 week November through to December. Such a lovely couple felt like we had know them for years and our dog house garden were all looked after as if this was there own home everything was immaculate thanks to you both. We look forward to having you look after Bella again in Jan to February for another few weeks. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great sit but you need to book early as ... MORE
LAURIE & SHIRLEY (Skye VIC, Nov 2016 - 2 weeks 3 days)
No rating Ernst & An house-sat for us the above period as well as during June 2016. They have only just departed from a third house-sit for us at Sellicks Beach, and, once again, we could not be more grateful for their devoted care of our beloved dog (and house and garden!). Quite simply - Ernst and An are the best. If you are reading this endorsement and are looking for someone to take diligent and careful responsibility for your house, garden and pets, may I suggest that your search is over. They ... MORE
SUE (Sellicks Beach SA, Aug 2016)
No rating Both Ernst and Ann were excellent housesitters. They cared for our house and yard as if it was there own. Kelly our dog was well cared for and being washed and dried. The pool was in a great state as was the yard. They left food in the freezer and refrigerator for us on return. They wash all our bedding which was very nice. Thanks Ernst and Ann.
GARY (North Nowra NSW, Jun 2016 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating Ernst and An looked after our home and pets (cat and dog) for a month in May 2016, while we were overseas. We had never used house-sitters previously so were quite apprehensive, but when Ernst and An came (all the way from Victoria!) for a pre-sit visit, our minds were immediately set at rest. They are such warm, friendly people and within minutes both our pets had taken to them and vice versa. While we were away Ernst and An contacted us regularly by email, accompanied by photos of the pets ... MORE
