65, Retired

I am a retired female in my sixties expanding my horizons and house-sitting my way through a "nomad" stage of retirement. I have now been sitting for over 5 years and didn't see this stage of me coming!
I enjoy house-sitting - the travel, relocating, new people and learning life's funny ways. I am known as a reliable, responsible and caring person, very fond of animals, plants and the precious environment.
I enjoy 'keeping the nest' rituals, am available short and long term and can travel further afield for the right experience.

No rating Lorraine stayed in my house for five nights. I have a 3yr Cavoodle and a 6 month cav x puppy. She did a great job of looking after them, they loved her. The house was immaculately tidy when I got home, and my pups were happy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lorraine again and hope to see her when I next go away.

No rating Thanks Lorraine for looking after our house and pets at such short notice. Aussie housesitters had been recommended before and I'd always felt reluctant, but relaxed immediately after your arrival. We were able to leave feeling that our pets were happy in their home environment, and that we didn't need to worry about them while away. I will be calling again!
CHRISTINA (Ashgrove QLD, Jan 2018)
No rating Lorraine looked after our home and pets on the Gold Coast in January 2018. We returned from our holiday to a clean house and happy, contented pets - what more could you want! I highly recommend Lorraine - thanks so much from us, Pipi the dog, Xena the cat, the lizards and the fish!
BERNADETTE (Sorrento QLD, Jan 2018)
No rating We would thoroughly recommend Lorraine as a house and dog sitter. We returned home to a spotless house and happy dog. She is a very experienced house sitter and despite having some very bad weather during her stay, she looked after the house and Sam very well. Thankyou Lorraine
LINDA (Mundoolun QLD, Dec 2017)
No rating We got Lorraine to house sit for us at short notice for a 10 day period and she did a great job! The comprehensive questionnaire she sent to us made us feel confident that she would be able to handle any problems with the house and pets in our absence. We arrived home to find the house lovely and clean and the animals obviously well cared for and happy. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her for your house sit.
AMANDA (Toowoomba QLD, Dec 2017)
No rating Lorraine was so amazing that we booked her again before she left! Our two toy poodles are totally in love with her and she left our home spotless. Very happy
CARMEN (Mt Nathan QLD, Nov 2017)
No rating Lorraine looked after our house and much loved dog for 4 weeks while we were overseas and we felt extremely comfortable leaving her in charge and knew our pet and house were in very capable hands. Lorraine made contact with us while we were away to reassure us all was well, and on our return we found the house immaculate and our "princess" looking wonderful. We cannot recommend Lorraine highly enough and we just hope that she may be able to house sit for us in the future.
GLENN & LINDA (Tamborine Mountain QLD, Sep 2017)
No rating Lorraine house sat for us while we went to Japan for 3 weeks. Prior to her arrival she sent us a word doc so we could give her all the information she needed in regards to what house duties were required while we were away, the dogs routines, emergency numbers etc. I thought this was a fantastic idea and she clearly had thought of every possible question that would need to be asked so it gave us peace of mind that she knew what she was doing. Also prior to our departure, she came to ... MORE
JOANNE (Whiteside QLD, Mar 2017)
No rating Lorraine is a lifesaver! She agreed to housesit for us at very short notice. She looked after our 19 year old cat Elwood, giving him his daily medication and put up with his food whims. Unfortunately we weren't able to meet Lorraine before or after our trip, but we were able to communicate via email which was very reassuring. Lorraine also looked after our house and plants very well and we have no hesitation in recommending her. We hope she will be available for our next trip.
GERALDINE JORDAN (Regency Downs QLD, Feb 2017)
No rating Recently Lorraine came to house sit for us which allowed us to take a holiday knowing that our home and older dog were well taken care of. As this was our first time using a house sitter, I loved the fact that Lorraine kept us up to date by email on how Buffy was coping. We would definitely love to have Lorraine house sit for us again if we can find a time that she hasn't already been snapped up!
SHARON (Bridgeman Downs QLD, Feb 2017)
No rating We had to quickly find a new housesitter after the unexpected of our usual lovely man. So pleased that we chose Lorraine as she was very pleasant and easy to communicate with. She looked after our animals and property very well and we have already booked her in for our next holidays. Would thoroughly recommend her. X
LORELLE (Burpengary QLD, Jan 2017)
No rating It was my first experience with Aussie House Sitters and I couldn't believe my luck when Lorraine answered my last minute ad to mind the apartment and my dog, Harvey, from 29th December until 1st January. Not very easy dates as people are always so busy during the holidays. Harvey got lots of walks and attention and I got a few messages letting me know Harvey was doing great, which I thought was a lovely touch. I also returned to find my house spotless. Thank you so much, Lorraine, you are ... MORE
NELL (Coorparoo QLD, Dec 2016)
No rating We were very impressed with Lorraine's care of our home and dog, Bella for the 5 weeks away. She really went out of her way to make sure every detail was taken care of and gave Bella lots of love and attention! We have no hesitation about recommending Lorraine. Thank you Lorraine
DEBBIE NORTJE (Helensvale QLD, Nov 2016)
No rating Lorraine looked after our house and beautiful King Charles Cavaliers (4yrs old sister & brother), Bonnie & Charlie for a week in November 2016. On meeting Lorraine, I noted she asked many questions in relation to the behaviour, likes, dislikes etc for B&C, she bonded well with them on the first meeting. Lorraine also asked many questions about our home. Due to circumstances, Lorraine went above and beyond a normal house-sit. For this I am extremely grateful that Lorraine agreed to look ... MORE
PAULETTE (Brookfield QLD, Nov 2016)
No rating We were away for 2 months overseas and had Lorraine come housesit for us and mind the cat. Our cat Shotzi was so content when we arrived home that she never scolded us for going away. I could see her affection for Lorraine and knew that she had a good time with her. The house was immaculate and it was so nice not to have to tend to anything but unpacking. Thank you Lorraine and I hope you are available for the next time we leave on an extended trip.
DI (Mount Ommaney QLD, Jul 2016)

MO (Mount Ommaney QLD, Jul 2016)
No rating We advertised for a very last minute sit and Lorraine happily managed to fit us into her busy house sitting schedule. After speaking with Lorraine on the phone I felt confident that she could manage almost any situation that might arise on our acreage. While away she sent an email updating us on the animals and we felt very comfortable knowing our pets and home were in good hands. Upon returning the house was spotless and the cats and chickens happy and healthy. We wouldn't hesitate to ... MORE
GABBY (Caniaba NSW, Jul 2016)
No rating Wow, how blessed was I to come across Lorraine. She was so passionate and loving towards my extended fur family (2Cats,2Dogs) and truly took the utmost care to ensure all were happy, warm and relaxed whilst I was away. Lorraine sent regular updates about how my pets were coping and the honest pleasure she had getting to know them all. I returned home to an absolutely spotless home, but more importantly, in my case, to incredibly happy contented pets. Lorraine is a delightful woman who I would ... MORE
TRISH EISENTRAGER (Sandgate QLD, Jul 2016)
No rating I was very happy with Lorraine whilst overseas for three weeks. This was my first time at leaving my little Maltese-cross and was a little apprehensive about it. However she looked after him really well...and she is also very tidy . A friendly and happy person ...I would recommend her with confidence.
