Roz and Steve

63, Retired

61, Retired

Our names are Roz and Steve Gugenberger, and we are fit and energetic non-smokers and animal lovers. Steve is 63 and Roz is 61. We are professional, dedicated, reliable and honest. We are retired now, but in the past lived and worked at the Gold Coast, Canberra, Hong Kong and London. Steve comes from an I.T. background and Roz spent her working life in Office Administration.

We recently started travelling full-time again in our 31 foot 5th Wheeler. Ideally we would like house sits which could accommodate "Goosey" on-site with us. Before Covid clipped our wings, we had been travelling a lot, doing Home Exchanges both in Australia and overseas. We got a taste for this nomadic lifestyle by House Sitting from 2009-2012 while we travelled around Australia in our caravan. We had some great experiences doing this, and love the nomadic lifestyle.

For six years we were Resident Managers living on-site in a Gold Coast townhouse complex managing and maintaining common property, including the pool and 2.5 hectares of gardens. In addition to this we also managed the rental of more than thirty of the townhouses as well as two free-standing houses. Being successful in this job meant we had to be very practical and able to handle unexpected situations that sometimes arise when looking after other people's homes - good background experience for housesitting.

We would like to be given the opportunity to look after your home and pets if you have them while you are away. We have our own transport, are independent and willing to travel to your destination. Both of us are house proud and would enjoy looking after your home, garden and pool if you have one to a high standard. Steve is a great handyman and has carried out a lot of work on our own home and rental properties we have managed. As he likes to keep busy, he is only too happy to take care of any little jobs around the house that you may have been putting off.

So if you are looking for clean, honest and reliable house and pet sitters with Police Checks and excellent references who will take care of your home and pets the way you do yourselves then please contact us, and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Steve and Roz were absolutely wonderful! They were careful and considered in preparing for the sit - taking the time to understand our home and the needs of our dogs Angus and Minnie. We felt the house and dogs were extraordinarily well looked after. When we arrived home Steve and Roz had gone above and beyond the call of duty in the garden and the house - they had prepared us a delicious meal as well as fresh flowers to welcome us home! Coming back from holidays can be such a downer - but ... MORE

Steve and Roz were great house sitters. They looked after my dog, Barney very well and kept me informed of his progress and other things at home. The house was very neat, tidy and welcoming when I returned from overseas and the garden looked great too. I would be very happy to recommend them to anyone who wants to leave their home and pet in safe, and reliable hands.

Steve and Roz are very professional in their approach to housesitting whilst still be very personable. They took great care of our two dogs which we greatly appreciated and we had had a clean and cared for home to return to. We would not hesitate to have Roz and Steve back to housesit for us.

Steve and Roz took wonderful care of our home and dog, Chester, while we were away. The house was lovely and clean when we arrived home and Chester was happy and relaxed. They always responded quickly to communications. I would highly recommend Roz and Steve to be your next house sitters.

As soon as we met Steve & Roz we knew we had made the right choice in sitters, we felt very comfortable with them, which made going away that must easier. Our fur kids loved them and have no doubt they where spoilt. They kept us upto date how our pets where doing.The lawns had been mowed the house was spotless. We have no hesitaion in recommending Steve & Roz and will use them in the furture. Thanks again.
PHILLIP (Rothwell QLD, Feb 2019)
Roz and Steve were absolutely delightful! We were newbies to Aussie House Sitters so initially a little apprehensive registering however after meeting Roz and Steve felt completely at ease leaving our home and fur babies in their very capable hands. Communication prior and during the house sit was great and we loved receiving updates including photos of Bundy and Jinx. Our very energetic lab enjoyed all the extra attention, baths and walks. We returned home to 2 very happy and healthy fur ... MORE

Steve and Roz were easy to communicate with, very easy to get along with, lovely people. We came home after a big road trip to the house smelling very clean, the house was in better condition then when we left, all sheets were washed and towels washed. Highly recommend.
