Sid and Reen

71, Retired

64, Retired

We are a quiet, caring, trustworthy and reliable couple. Reen (Maureen) is interested in knitting, crocheting and making her own cards. She is also very much into helping others.
Sid loves computers and has been using them since 1970.
Both Sid and Reen love to care for animals ... dogs, cats and horses, amongst others.
We do make a small charge of $100 per week to help cover our travelling costs. Our home base is in Tuncurry on the mid-north coast of NSW.
During 2016, we looked after animals and homes in Diamond Beach (cats), Upper Lansdowne (cattle, chooks, dog), Eleebana (dogs, cat), Woodberry (dog, cat), Fern Bay (dogs, cat and budgies), Wagga Wagga (cat), Heathcote (Victoria) (dogs, cat), Lake Bathurst (horses, alpacas, dogs, chooks), Lambs Valley (cattle, sheep, horses, dogs) and Ulmarra (cats and fish).
In 2017 we had house sits in Firefly (sheep, chooks, dog and cat), Gungal (pigs, dog and cat), Butterwick (dog), Lansdowne (horses, alpaca, dog and cat), Mirannie (dogs, fish, cat and chooks, Braidwood (dogs, horses, alpacas, chooks) and Telegraph Point (cat, dog, rabbits, birds and chickens).
In 2018 we cared for homes and animals in Marlee, Smiths Lake, Tinonee, Singleton, Forster, Redbank and Eatons Hill (Brisbane).
In total, Sid and Reen have cared for 34 homes in 3.5 years, which has given us a fine background of experience.
So far in 2019 we have been doing repeat house-sits at Telegraph Point and Mirannie. We did new house-sits at Branxton and Whittingham.

No rating Sid & Reen looked after our small acreage near Singleton for 6 weeks and we were very fortunate to have them here. They kept us informed, sent pictures, and coped extremely well with the dry windy conditions throughout their stay. We were very grateful that they kept everything alive with constant watering and care. They looked after our pets with love and kindness . The house was clean and tidy, the grass cut and everything looked great. Meals were prepared for us and the fridge and cupboards ... MORE
ROSSLYN & GARRY (Mirannie NSW, Jul 2017 - 2 months)
Sid and Reen completed a housesit for us looking after our 2 cats, Robin and RImbah. We were very happy with the service they provided and our fur babies were certainly happy and content on our return.
MICHELLE AND WARWICK (Soldiers Point NSW, Apr 2019 - 1 month 1 week)
Sid & Ren were very considerate & caring of our home and our precious 4yr old furbaby during the 6weeks we were away. They kept in contact whilst we were away o/s which was greatly appreciated. Definitely would have them housesit - thank you to you both for making our first "homesit" experience so positive.
