Hello! Our names are Barbara and Stuart and we are mature, responsible, non-smokers who enjoy a quiet life. We have experience looking after many different types of pets and people's homes. Respectful and honest are values we hold as very important when interacting with others and their property; We can provide excellent house-sitting references. Being retired allows us plenty of free time to exercise your pet(s), lavish them with love and attention and to maintain your home and garden. The security of your pet(s), home and property left in our care is also important to us. In addition to caring for your pet(s) and home, we are happy to assist with any additional housework or maintenance that will enable you to return to your home stress free. We have a lot of experience with large animals such as horses, goats and cows on rural properties as well.

We first began house-sitting in 2016 and we love the freedom of living in different locations all over Australia, meeting wonderful people and caring for their beloved pets while they enjoy a break away.

We are available for long-term (1 month+) house sit opportunities.

Barbara and Stuart went above and beyond our expections whilst looking after our dog Jack and our home. They cared for both Jack and our home as if it was their own and we received regular updates and photos. When arriving home we were greeted to a beautiful spotless home, a very happy dog and a well cared for garden. I am more than happy to highly recommend Barbara and Stuart for any future house sits. They are both a delight.

No rating Barbara is a dynamo - she kept in touch with us frequently, she went over and above in looking after our house and our dog - even cooking him up special meals to help ease his arthritis! Stuart and Barbara had to leave a little earlier due to medical needs, so we didn't get to have a hand over ( as she likes to do) but we really appreciate all she did whilst here. I'd definitely ask them to come again if they are free and in the area ✅

No rating We had planned our extensive trip for a long time so it was wonderful to see Barbara and Stuart arrive safely at our property to complete our plans. What a fabulous couple! After spending a short time with them before our departure, we felt like we'd known them for ever. They took very good care of our little dogs, Odie and Minty, as well as keeping our house in pristine condition. The gardens and lawns were also meticulously maintained. When they departed, we were all sad but decided we must ... MORE

No rating Well we can't praise Barbara and Stuart enough. They arrived at our place and straight away we knew everything was going to be ok. The help they gave us in finishing off our renovation so we could leave on time was way beyond what was expected. They were great! While we were away they were fantastic, even settling in our new tenants. When we arrived home the house was immaculate, everything was cared for, there was even fresh bread and milk in the fridge for us. Our animals didn't even seem to ... MORE

No rating Barbara and Stuart are wonderful people; they do so much more than just house-sitting! they are very reassuring, clean, tidy, hands-on, and just love animals. i felt very safe leaving all my possessions and pets with them, and was not disappointed in the slightest. I came back home to a spotless house, neat garden, and very chirpy dogs. I warmly recommend Barbara and Stuart's services to anyone with animals! And I will most certainly contact them again for my next holiday.
MEL (Booie QLD, Dec 2017 - 4 weeks)
No rating Barbara and Stuart house and pet sat for us for the month of November 2017. We found them to be reliable, considerate, great communicators and kind. Barbara and Stuart went over and above what we expected by generously assisting with our commuting to and from the airport. They left our home very neat and tidy upon their departure. I have no hesitation in recommending Barbara and Stuart as a trustworthy house/pet sitters.
PRISCILLA (Gunnedah NSW, Nov 2017 - 3 weeks)
No rating I can't speak highly enough of Barbara and Stuart. I returned to a clean and tidy home and garden (despite the fact that we had a couple of storms whilst I was away which created a lot of mess - all tidied up by Barbara and Stuart) and a very contented cat. Barbara and Stuart are very helpful and reliable. I would be delighted to have them look after the house and Errol again.
RACHEL (Carindale QLD, Oct 2017 - 1 week)
No rating Barb & Stuart looked after our house and pets for about 6 weeks. They went above and beyond in looking after the pets, transformed our gardens beyond our belief, and looked after the house like it was their own - leaving the house absolutely spotless. We have 2 ponies, one of which required a bit of special care and daily medication, and he was looked after every bit as well as if we were doing it ourselves. Our dog and cat were so at ease when we got home...we wonder if they ... MORE
