We are former professionals in journalism and the community sector/teaching. We have been fortunate enough to retire early and to now have the time and opportunity to explore and enjoy this wonderful country (and other parts of the world). While this new lifestyle is great, one downside is that it does not afford us the pleasure of enjoying pets of our own, as we have always previously done. We are a kind, caring and responsible couple, who appreciate the chance, and take seriously the responsibility of spending time in others' homes. You can be assured that we would always treat your home with the utmost respect and care, and your beloved pets with the greatest affection and attention, so that you can enjoy your travels without worry. We are very happy to provide personal references.
I would highly recommend Ros and Daryl to house and pet sit. The house was in impeccable condition when we returned and the dogs were happy and healthy. Daryl and Ros kept us updated with photos whilst we were away. We left on holidays knowing that our dogs and house were in safe hands. Thank you both!

I lost my hubby in Aug 2020 during COVID restrictions with travel interstate and needed to wait before having a funeral in Vic with family. I made last min plans when Vic & Qld announced they would lift restrictions for Xmas. Ros & Daryl applied and I couldn't have been happier. These guys gave great communication with photos of Luka (whom I thought would miss me because he lost his beloved friend too as our dog also died not long before hubby). Well, Luka was so spoilt and looked very ... MOREI lost my hubby in Aug 2020 during COVID restrictions with travel interstate and needed to wait before having a funeral in Vic with family. I made last min plans when Vic & Qld announced they would lift restrictions for Xmas. Ros & Daryl applied and I couldn't have been happier. These guys gave great communication with photos of Luka (whom I thought would miss me because he lost his beloved friend too as our dog also died not long before hubby). Well, Luka was so spoilt and looked very relaxed. It made my journey so much easier and a relief to know he was well cared for. They're such personable people that I feel we may become friends as well. Thanks guys! I look forward to your visits to "Luka" whenever you'd like a smooch with him You're welcome anytime! Oh & my home was spotless too

Ros and Darryl were great sitters, no fuss with good communication in arranging the sit. The dogs were happy and well on my return (I don't think they even missed me, they had such a good time). It was wonderful walking back into such a clean and tidy house. I will certainly invite Ros and Darryl back

Daryl and Ros were the perfect sitters! They are great communicators and we loved receiving videos of Lucy every day. It made our holiday even more special enjoying that extra smile each day. We returned to a clean home, a very healthy and happy Lucy, and even a special treat for us in the fridge (yes, we were good! :)).
Daryl and Ros, we would love to have you return, and so would Lucy!

It was an absolute pleasure having Ros and Daryl look after our home and animals. We met them briefly before we left and knew from that moment that we did not need to worry about leaving them in charge. Ros and Daryl emailed us regularly with updates and videos and on our return the house was in impeccable order. We would not hesitate in recommending Ros and Daryl and would have them house / pet sit again. We just need to book our next holiday,

Daryl and Ros have been model house sitters, they cared for our home, cared for our 2 large older dogs, communicated daily sending us photo updates of walks with our dogs.
They left the home wonderfully clean and cared for we will definitely welcome them back in the future !!!
