Single Mum and 12 year old son

46, Full-time home educating Mum

12, Home education

My 12 year old son & I are currently pet sitting full-time when we are not overseas traveling. Pet sits in 2019 included:

- Moorland (a Labrador, 2 horses, and 3 chickens)
- Sydney (a Greyhound)

- Seaford (2 Border Collies)
- Botanic Ridge (2 poodles)
- Highett (2 Kelpies & a cat)
- Malvern East (2 dogs & a lizard)
- Mornington (2 Golden Retrievers)
- Seaford (the same Border Collies as May)

- Karingal (2 King Charles Spaniels)
- Mornington (a Hound & a little mix dog)

I need to update my reviews, but any of the families above would be very happy to be a reference for us.

Overview of us:
For the last 7 years my 12 year old son and I have been living full-time on the road, traveling Australia in our Toyota HiAce Campervan. Over the last 3 years we have focused on international travel, and house sitting in VIC or NSW between our trips.

We both love animals, and living on the road & traveling overseas, we miss out on having pets, so you can be sure your pets will receive a lot of love, especially from my son. As we home educate (we are worldschoolers), we will be home each day, so your animals will be very well cared for, and receive a lot of attention.

We are both naturally neat & tidy people (even my son!), and I can assure you that your house will be well looked after & maintained while you are away, including your garden if you have one.

We can come to meet you any time, and you can see if we're a fit.

Thank you for considering us,
Alice and Satria.

Toorak, VIC, June to July 2018 for 3 weeks, looking after a dog and 2 cats.

Review from Anna Foley, for this pet sit:
"Alice looked after our two black cats and Rhodesian ridgeback - animals loved her and satria. I felt the animal were very happy when we returned. I could tell they had been loved in a beautiful and respectful way."

Byron Bay area, NSW, in December 2018 for 1 week looking after 1 dog.

Review from Eka Eiff for this dog sit:
"Alice & Satria are totally trustworthy, ultra clean and quiet animal lovers. Your dog will have the best company for the days you are away and your house will be meticulous when you come back. They couldn't be in better hands. Our dogs are still so happy to see Alice & Satria every time they come back."

Older pet sits:
Mullumbimby, NSW, June to July 2017 for 5 weeks with a cat. In

The reference for the dog & python sit is a attached to my profile, as it was booked through Aussie House Sitters.

For those with horses, we lived on a friend's farm in Main Arm, NSW for 3 months in 2017, and pet sit a couple of times a year there, looking after 4 horses, chooks, geese, a cat, & 2 dogs. This owner would also be very happy to give a reference.

Alice and her son looked after my Greyhound for 4 days while I was away at Easter, and I couldn't have been happier with them! They were very communicative in the lead-up to the stay, so friendly and kind in person and did such a fantastic job caring for Fonzie. He was so healthy, happy and calm when I got back from my trip :) They left the house in immaculate condition (better than when I left it!) and sent me regular photo updates of Fonzie happily playing with Satria in the park. ...

Alice and Satria did an excellent job of taking care of our fur children whilst we were away. Communication was great with regular pictures and text messages keeping us up to date, I would not hesitate in asking them to house sit for us in the future and highly recommend them for anyone looking for trustworthy animal loving house sitters.
CELESTE (Highett VIC, Aug 2019 - 2 weeks 3 days)
Alice and her son house sat for us for four weeks, looking after our two dogs. We returned to a tidy and clean home and our dogs looked happy and healthy. Alice was great at keeping in touch and I would highly recommend them.
TRACEY (Botanic Ridge VIC, Jul 2019 - 4 weeks)
Alice and her son were perfect house sitters. Very easy to communicate with prior to us leaving and even better whilst we were away. We received photos of our dogs on long walks and we came back to our house extremely clean. We would love Alice to sit again for us sometime. Highly highly recommended.
ASHLEIGH (Seaford VIC, May 2019 - 1 week)
A lovely family who looked after my house and plants but especially my animals. They were all happy and relaxed when I got home. Many thanks. I would recommend them wholeheartedly
CLAIRE (Moorland NSW, Apr 2019 - 6 days)
No rating Alice and her son, Satria were excellent house sitters! They looked after my pets very well, even though they'd had very little experience looking after a python! Even with a few minor hiccups, they were dealt with efficiently, with Alice keeping me informed of proceedings at all times. Upon my return the house was immaculate. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alice and Satria as house sitters.
