Reliable Caring Couple

71, retired

We are Carolyn & Cliff, an active retired couple (non smokers & drinkers).We have been touring Australia in our caravan since retiring in 2011, from 18 years as Manager's in Caravan Parks and an Over 50's Lifestyle Village. Prior to that Cliff was employed as a butcher until we had our own Butcher shop & I was a supervisor working with disabled & handicapped people
We have had pets in the past but don't have any now as we are travelling in our caravan.
We started off house sitting for our friends then joined the Aussie House Sitters Site in 2015.We have done many lovely house sits since joining and have enjoyed looking after their homes and pets.
We do like to keep a clean and tidy home and yard.
We would love to be invited into your home to give love and attention to your pets & home. We follow your pets routine with extra cuddles so they don't fret while you are away..
Our caravan is 21ft but overall length from tow hitch to rear bumper is 27 ft so would need space to park as well as manoeuvring.
We have endorsements, references & police checks.
At present we are in SA and will be in the state until mid October 2018.
Carolyn & Cliff Smith

We cannot say enough about Carolyn and Cliff! From the moment we met them we were immediately at ease and felt like we had known them our entire lives! They took such amazing care of our two fur babies and our home! Everything was sparkling clean when we arrived home. The pups definitely miss them. Can't possibly thank them enough! Hoping to see them again soon.

Carolyn and Cliff were fabulous house sitters and Fatty (dog) looker-afterers. In the midst of a house renovation they were stalwartly cheerful as well as being TAs (trades assistant) when required and general all-round team players. We wish them the best with their future travels and sits.

JANICE (Maryborough VIC, May 2018)

Wow, where do i start We loved coming home to a very beautiful smelling and clean home. Possibly cleaner than i left it. All gardens watered, lawns mowed and outside area clean and tidy, Kitty our aging boy was spoilt i can tell by some photos and rather happy as we arrived home, as if we'd hadnt even left him for 2+ weeks Im sure if he could speak he would love to thank Cliff & Carolyn for taking such good care of him & would have them back in a flash. Thank you both Highly recommended.

DONNA & KIM (Irymple VIC, Apr 2018)

A big thank you to an awesome couple,Caroline & Cliff. They looked after our doggies so well, went above and beyond.......Our three dogs were very spoilt whilst we were away, plus very well looked after...... I cannot recommend them both highly enough, such lovely people. Caroline is a great cook too, had a lovely hot dinner waiting for us, as we arrived late home.... Just hope they are not booked up on our next travels.

LINDA & ROB TOWART (Leitchville VIC, Mar 2018)

We recently had Cliff and Carolyn look after our home whilst on a 3 week holiday. They treated our home as their own kept the gardens neat and tidy which was a big ask as our property is situated on 2 acres of land. The house was very clean and tidy upon our arrival home. Our 2 cats were cared for as if they were Cliff and Carolyn's. I have no hesitation in highly recommending them to house sit and would have them back in an instance. Cheers Cliff and Carolyn

PHILIP (Berry Park NSW, Dec 2017)

Carolyn & Cliff looked after our house and and cats for just over 6 months. They looked after our cats so well I think the cats are disappointed we came home! The house and gardens and lawns were beautiful and the pool was sparkling when we returned. They had to contend themselves with readying for a possible cyclone and a couple of problems with a toilet and fan motor but took in their stride. The are a kind and friendly couple who we would recommend for house sitting your porperty. We thank them for looking after ours and hope we see them again. Suzanne and Ian

SUZANNE (Balgal Beach QLD, Mar 2017)

Carolyn and Cliff looked after Zoe our cocker spaniel and house while we where away in Queensland getting married and on our honeymoon for five weeks from early December 2016 to early January 2017 We came home finding Zoe to be very happy and contented and so spoilt and our house was beautiful and clean and tidy with all the sheets washed and bed made and lawns mowed and everything looking lovely for our arrival home after our long holiday. I would not have any hesitation in recommending Carolyn and Cliff for any Housesits/Pet sits in the future They where fantastic lovely people who cared for Zoe and our house so well Thankyou once again Carolyn and Cliff you are welcome anytime to Housesitters/pet sit again for us Kind Regards Sonia and Darryl Wadalba NSW

SONIA (Wadalba NSW, Nov 2016)

Carolyn and Cliff have just completed a house sit, for us. We returned home to happy pets and an immaculate house. The lawns were mowed and the pool was cleaned. Carolyn and Cliff are a very friendly couple and we recommend them highly. We couldn't be more pleased - Thank you Carolyn and Cliff!!!

BARRY (Abermain NSW, Oct 2016)

Cliff & Carol did a housesit for us from May to August as well as babysat our 2 JR Terriers. I highly recommend Carol & Cliff to take care of your house and pets. Our house was immaculate when we arrived home & the dogs were very settled. The lawns were perfectly mowed & weeding done. They are very caring people that will treat your house & pets like their own.

ROY & HEATHER (Wauchope NSW, May 2016)

Hi, we have had the pleasure of Carolyn and Cliff sit our home. One of our main concerns was that our dogs were looked after. They did this beautifully under difficult circumstances. One our dogs, Lucy was not well, and needing more care than she usually does. Carolyn and Cliff made sure she ate, had her medication and was able to see the vet she needed. We were able to have our holiday knowing things were all good at home. I will be very happy to have them sit our home and animals on other occasions. Thanks Carolyn and Cliff


Carolyn and Cliff did a fantastic job looking after our pets and home consisting of 3 dogs 2 ducks 10 chickens and 2 gold fish. After meeting Carolyn and Cliff we were able to go on our holiday knowing that our pets were in safe hands. During our 3 weeks away we had one night at home after 2 weeks away when we arrived home on that night we found the lawns mowed the house was well maintained all the animals were very content and happy and Carolyn had dinner on the stove. We were able to head off for our last week away without a care in the world. We would highly recommend Carolyn and Cliff and anyone who decides to use Carolyn and Cliff as sitters I can assure you that your pets and property are in great hands. We hope you can make it back to sit for us in the future. Once again thank you very much Glenn and Sue
