Reliable Trustworthy Care

We are an energetic, mature couple who adore all kinds of animals and are very experienced in looking after dogs of all sizes, cats, birds, chickens, alpacas, goats, horses, ponies, miniature horses, rabbits and guinea pigs. Currently we own a very sociable whippet called Riley who can be looked after by family when we are on housesits but only for short periods. We have housesat for many families in the past and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience while the owners have enjoyed a stress free time away knowing their home and pets are well looked after. We are tidy, respectful, trustworthy and security conscious people and will take great care of your property, pets and garden as if they were our own. We are non smokers and enjoy walking everyday. We're looking forward to meeting you and your pets in the near future.

Due to other commitments, we are currently only available for very short sits.

Catherine and Greg were exceptional sitters who looked after the dogs, fish, chooks, house and garden extremely well. The house was spotless when we returned, the bed linen washed and beds remade, animals happy and garden thriving. Thank you so much Greg and Catherine.

Cathy and Greg were amazing housesitters! They provided exceptional service! From caring for our pets to maintaining our home, they exceeded our expectations. Professional, reliable, and trustworthy, they gave us peace of mind while we were away. Highly recommend them and hope they will sit for us another time!"

As usual Cathy and Greg were awesome farm sitters. The place was cleaner when we got back than I’d left it. All animals fed according to instructions and all tasks done above and beyond expectation. Thank you both so much for making each trip away so free of worry. 🥰

We can't recommend Cathy highly enough! From the meet-and-greet beforehand to the moment we walked back in the door, they provided exceptional care for our home and our precious pets.
MELANIE (Safety Beach VIC, Mar 2024 - 2 nights)
Cathy and Greg were simply amazing housesitters! Cathy made the time to meet and we did a handover, and on return she gave me a thorough handover too. The house was left immaculately, a beautiful feeling to arrive home to. Cathy and Greg had an unexpected surprise during their stay with 5 baby peacocks hatching! As if it wasn't enough looking after our cat, bunnies, horses and other feathered friends. It was such a relief to have Cathy take care of the mum and babies for us, they both went ... MORE

Cathy and Greg were lovely. The puppy was happy and full of beans when we came home, the house was immaculate and Cathy through careful care, kept our ailing Rooster going. She cared for our chilly, recently shorn alpacas and generally kept everything stress free for us. I am so grateful for the lovely break we were able to take.

We can highly recommend Cathy and Greg to anyone considering them as house sitters. Lovely people, easy to chat to, relaxed and very accommodating to our requirements for our animals when we were away. We returned to a clean, tidy house and happy animals. Thanks Cathy and Greg for all your care.

Catherine and Greg were wonderful housesitters! They cared for our cats and home and we enjoyed a stress free break. Would not hesitate to have them house sit again.
ROWENA (Daylesford VIC, May 2021 - 3 days)
We were in dire need to get away and we don't trust our boys with just anyone. Catherine and Greg came to the rescue and did an amazing job. The house was immaculate when we got back and the dogs were well taken care of. I don't even think they missed us.
GARY & PETER (Narbethong VIC, Jan 2021 - 4 nights)
Catherine and Glen are were great housesitters. They looked after our property Xmas 2019 for 9 days. From the first communication, they were efficient! They obliged when I asked them to come for a meet & greet prior to the housesit, They were calm and level-headed and their whippet Riley, was pretty much the same! I thought having 3 dogs on site would have been chaotic for them, (our two are just bozos!), but Riley was probably a calming influence and all dogs got on well. Catherine & ... MORE

Catherine and Greg were a lovely couple who we felt very comfortable taking care of our pets and house. Very responsible and understanding of the little things that matter, we wouldn't hesitate for a moment having them stay again. Thank you so much Catherine and Greg.
COLIN (Mount Macedon VIC, Jul 2019 - 2 days)
Catherine and Greg are welcome back any time, as is Catherine's dad, Ray. It was lovely returning home to a house which was spotless and all our animals were happy and well cared for. We look forward to welcoming them back for a house sit later in the year.
JULIE (Maryknoll VIC, Mar 2019 - 3 days)
Cathrine and Greg were a great help and took great care of our animals. The house was spotlessly clean when we returned home to be greeted by happy dogs.
SHELLY (Emerald VIC, Mar 2019 - 2 days)
Catherine's daughter Julie, and Andrew house sat for us last Christmas. We were concerned about leaving our dog Max in summer. This was because he was 13 and due to his age has some medical issues, particularly in the heat. We found we didn't have to worry one bit. Julie was fantastic and not only because she had just qualified as a vet. She bonded instantly with Max and vice versa. While looking after Max was our first criteria, Julie and Andrew also did a wonderful job with minding our ... MORE

Catherine & Julie were just the best. From the moment we met them we knew Manu & our home would be in good care. We were so right. Had a wonderful hot meal when we arrived home exhausted after 10 hrs on the road. Wonderful sitters, first experience for us both was fantastic. David & I feel we have new friends & will keep in touch. Thanks ladies. Manu misses you. �
