Reliable couple, pet-lovers and house-sitters

50, Published writer / nutritionist

40, Economist

We are a mature, reliable, honest and trustworthy couple who love being around pets. We are respectful of others privacy, property and security.

We had our own pets for most of our lives. I had Polish Shepherd for 15 years back in Poland, and fish, while Raquel had various animals such as dogs, cats, canaries and fish. We both shared a Persian cat while living together in Portugal.

We know how important it is to feel secure in the safety of our home and to know that our furry friends are being cared for while having holidays. We have a life-long experience taking care of various pets and other people's homes.

So far during our pet-sitting we have taken care of many dogs (such as Border Collie, Flat coated retriever, Australian cattle dog, many Greyhounds, Moodles, Shmoodles, Giant Schnauzer, Great Dane, and many more) many cats, rabbits and many hens.

We are both non-smokers with a healthy and active lifestyle. We are clean and tidy and are used to maintaining our own home.

I (Pawel) am an Australian (born in Poland) writer and certified nutritionist. I have written books on nutrition and healthy eating (published on Amazon.com).

I work online from home, which allows me to take care of both the property and pets during our stay. I also have experience in basic garden and pool maintenance.

Raquel was born in Portugal. She currently works for the NSW Treasury.

Pawel and Raquel looked after our place and our cats while we were away this Winter and they did an excellent job. We had the opportunity to meet them prior to them taking on the sit and we loved them. They are just straight up good people, who we enjoyed spending time with and knew right away that we could trust them. They went above and beyond, even driving us to the airport for our trip and leaving a truly amazing meal in the fridge for us when we got home. I would not hesitate to leave our ... MORE

We are so greatful to Pawel and Raquel for the great housesitting job they did for us while we were away. We came home to a spotless house, a happy dog and a meal prepared for us in the fridge!
NICOLE (Kilaben Bay NSW, Aug 2020 - 10 days)
Pawal and Rachel and the most amazing house and pet sitters! They clearly have a love for animals and all 3 of our pets immediately took to them. They are very honest, open and communicative. We have come home to a sparkling house with lovely homemade health food/fruits and happy critters. Our Retriever received copious amounts of exercise due to their walks and dog park visits. Cannot recommend them enough.
BRUCE (Newport/Bungan Beach NSW, Jul 2020 - 3 weeks)
Thank you so much Pawel and Raquel! We returned home to find an immaculate house and 2 very happy and healthy chihuahuas!!! Can't thank you enough for taking such good care of them.
JO (Palm Beach NSW, Jan 2020 - 6 days)
Pawel and Rakel where amazing. We shared the house for two nights which was easy and comfortable and helpful to pass on our dog and house functions. They were very accepting of things to support our home and puppy. They went above and beyond our expectations on our arrival home. They have cleaned appliances amazingly, stocked the fruit bowl for our family and left a prepared meal. The dog was wonderfully happy, settled and cared for. We look forward to having them stay in the future. ... MORE
STEPHANIE (Linden NSW, Oct 2019 - 3 weeks)
Cannot recommend Pawel and Raquel highly enough! My partner and I felt truly able to relax and enjoy our holiday knowing our home and cats were in Pawel and Raquel's care. We returned to a lovely home cooked meal, a sparkling clean home and two very content kitties. Pawel communicated clearly with us and helped us feel reassured when our plumbing started playing up. He reassured us that it was under control and he was able to manage it in our absence. We would definitely have them house ... MORE

We arrived home from our holidays to a very happy cat, a home that was immaculately clean, log fire blazing and a home cooked meal ! Lovely housesitters who really care and are very trustworthy.
MARY (Blaxland NSW, Jun 2019 - 20 days)
Not only was our beagle looking great on our return (actually better than when we left!), the apartment had been cleaned; laundry done; and a beautiful meal of Moroccan rice (really yummy with nuts, currants & dried apricots) & chicken left for our lunch. Very thoughtful. Will be comfortable to ask for their help again. We had asked Raquel & Pawel to use the herbs in our balcony so they are not wasted. We didn't expect our collection of herbs to be trebled with new additions to our relatively ... MORE

I am so greatful to Pawel and Raquel for the great housesitting job they did for us while we were away in India for 6 weeks. We came home to a spotless house, a happy dog and a meal prepared for us in the fridge! We had a lightening strike on the house while we were away which put the internet and phone out of action for a week but our housesitters handled this with minimum disruption to us. I highly recommend them
ELIZABETH (Summer Hill NSW 2130 NSW, Oct 2018)

JAMES (Enmore NSW, Jul 2018 - 2 weeks 3 days)
Pawel and Raquel looked after our much loved senior Louie for six weeks while we were away. Naturally we were anxious but Pawel and Raquel spoiled our little fury friend so much we though he would not want us back! Louie did just fine as did our home which was well looked after. We have no hesitation to highly recommend this most lovely, reliable and caring couple and when we go away again we hope that they can attend to Louie again. Thank you sincerely Pawel and Raquel and we and Louie ... MORE
RACHEL AND PETER (Brighton-le-sands NSW, May 2018 - 1 month 1 week)
Our first time having house sitters and we were so impressed with Pawel and Raquelle..they took care of our house and garden as if it was there own and gave our beloved dog Ruby lots of love and exercise...she adored them and you could really tell they are animal lovers. And to top it all off we arrived home to a restaurant quality dinner fully prepared. Thanks Pawel and Raquelle for everything..we can't recommend you highly enough and hope you can housesit for us again...
SALLY-ANNE (Surry Hills NSW, Feb 2018 - 2 weeks 4 days)
No rating To whom it may concern, Pawel and Raquel looked after hour house and most importantly our young puppy for 10 days. Not only did they keep the house in excellent order they were very caring and loving towards our young dog. They even left us a cooked meal on our return. We thoroughly recommend them both on the care and attention they gave to our home and our puppy. We would use them again in an instant! Thank you both
RANJAN (Pennant Hills NSW, Jan 2018 - 1 week 3 days)
Pawel and Raquel looked after our dog Harry and our house for a week in October 2017. They were perfect housesitters - quick responses to emails and calls, great rapport with Harry on meeting, and looked after him very well; left our home clean and tidy, and even cooked a delicious meal for our return. They walked Harry (twice) a day, and also washed all their bed linen before leaving. Pawel communicated with me regularly while we were away, and sent pictures of Harry. I recommend them to ... MORE
LIZ (Wentworth Falls NSW, Oct 2017 - 1 week)
Pawel and Raquel are a wonderful couple! We needed somebody to take care of our dog while we were away for 2 weeks and we believe we hit the jackpot :) We had excellent communication with them at all times through WhatsApp, so our holidays were totally stress free. Most importantly the guys love animals, so if you're looking for somebody to take good care of your fur baby then search no more. Our house was left spotless, even our bed was ready for us, so we could go straight to sleep after a ... MORE
SALOME AND CHRIS (Leichhardt NSW, Sep 2017 - 1 week 5 days)
Pawel and Raquel were the perfect house sitters. I cannot say enough about how happy we were to find them. We spent 3 and a half weeks away and we never had to worry once about our two greyhounds we left in their care. They treated the house as if it were their own, it was left perfectly clean and organised. Our greyhounds, Mouse and Kingsley adored them, I think they probably forgot about their owners after a day! I highly recommend Pawel and Raquel to anyone - you'll be lucky to have ... MORE
ALI (Concord NSW, Sep 2017 - 3 weeks)
Pawel and Raquel took great of our home in Mosman for about 4 months toward the end of 2017. This included maintaining a pool and extensive gardens. They communicated regularly and conscientiously kept on top of all issues such as mail, trash collection and day-to-day upkeep. It was so fantastic to arrive home and find a gourmet meal waiting for us, the oven freshly cleaned good as new, and the walkways and pool deck recently pressure washed, and the inside sparkling clean. Thank you VERY ... MORE
LAURENCE & DENNIS (Mosman NSW, Jun 2017 - 2 months 1 week)
Pawel and Raquel house-sat and minded 2 four year old doggies for us for a month from 13 May to 11 June. From the onset we already had a great impression of them, from the responsive email and text communications to our face to face catch up a few months before we went away. Pawel was very earnest and keen to house-sit for us and we were very glad we had them at our place. We came back home to a clean house, very healthy and happy doggies and a lovely meal (dessert included) Pawel and ... MORE
MAURICE (Maroubra NSW, May 2017 - 4 weeks)
We were very fortunate to secure the services of Pawel and Raquel to housesit and look after our 3 dogs for us while we were overseas in April/May 2017 for nearly 6 weeks. This was our first experience with using housesitters and we were delighted with the outcome. On initially arranging to meet them, Pawel and Raquel proved to be very prompt and we felt immediately at ease in their company. We got on very well, so I introduced them to my 3 dogs and I could see straight away that they had ... MORE
KATHY COCKS (Castle Hill NSW, Apr 2017 - 3 weeks)
From the get-go Pawel and Raquel were an absolute pleasure to deal with. This was our first time using a house-sitter and they made the process easy and seamless (we didn't know what they or we, really needed). Without going in to too much detail, they went above and beyond when caring for our Greyhound. When an injury occurred, while we were so far away, knowing that they were there was truly comforting. They left the house cleaner than they got it and a home-cooked meal was very much ... MORE
KERRI (Abbotsford NSW, Mar 2017)
Both Pawel and Raquel are delightful sitters. They took excellent care of our home, gardens and our cheeky pet house rabbit. Pawel has a great interest in health, nutrition and cooking, so loves the kitchen! Both are communicative, friendly people who we felt instantly comfortable and affable with. They gave over and above what was expected from them, including some lovely dinners left for us when we arrived home tired and exhausted from our travels!
KAREN (Callala Bay NSW, Feb 2017 - 4 weeks)
Mick and I cannot say enough good things about our experience having Pawel and Raquel sit our home and mind our animals. We were away for two weeks and Pawel and Raquel minded our 8 acres, a very active 2yr old cattle dog Ted, 2 cats Mim and Mo and 10 hens. They experienced days of extreme heat having high 30/40 degree days back to back. They went over and above to care for the animals having cats and dogs inside in the aircon and placed large ice blocks under the trees for the hens.They left ... MORE
