sitters 4 u

retired

semi-retired

Retired couple, non-smokers, over 11 years experience home and pet sitting, experience with various breeds, sizes, dogs, cats, chooks, ducks, birds, fish, sheep, horses, pools, ride-on mower, etc

WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR A FOREVER HOME IN SA AND WE ARE AVAILABLE TO HOUSE/PET SIT

We are Robert and Victoria, a married, retired couple, former homeowners and former long term residents in the Adelaide area.

Robert - retired Army Warrant Officer, Bank Auditor and Primary School Bicycle Educator, and Victoria - semi-retired Civil Celebrant, non-smokers, pet lovers, and capable gardeners.

We are willing to house-sit while you have a holiday with the peace of mind that your property and/or pets will be cared for to a high standard.

With many pet/house sits ranging from suburban house blocks, to semi-rural in SA, VIC, NSW, and QLD, we are very experienced house/pet minders including rural/semi-rural pets (horses etc) Most sits have involved multiple pets and we have cared for Staffies, Beagles, Labradors, Golden Retriever, Schnauzer, Maltese X, Dalmatian, Border Collies, Chihuahua, Jack Russells, Tenterfield Terrier, Sharpei, Lagotto, cats, domestic ducks, chooks, horses, baby lambs, Cockatiels, Sulphur Crested white cocky, fish and turtle. One sit even involved morning and afternoon feeding sessions for approx 200 magpie geese and around 50 others including wild ducks, bush turkeys and guinea fowls that had been attracted to the property dam area.

We are quite capable of meeting your requirements for pet care, including walking dogs. Robert has also given horse injections and medication according to vet instruction - between vet visits.
We are well informed previous pool owners, Robert can also do ride-on mowing.

Being retired/semi-retired gives us flexibility and lots of time to look after your home, garden and pets.

We consider ourselves professional house and pet sitters/carers and look forward to discussing your requirements.
We do not sit for people who use Nanny cameras, we would find this very intrusive and invasion of privacy, so if you do use this type of equipment, please don't contact us.

Our needs are, space for our caravan and car, space in the fridge for our supplies, bathroom with space for our personal toiletries and we do need a comfy, queen sized bed (Robert is Tall).
We supply our own sheets, pillows and towels, as I use a special clothes wash, we state this so there is no chance any confusion, If there are a lot of animals we may ask for a small remuneration for our time, as this is really about house-sitting.

We are also available to give your home a spring clean if required, whilst we are there and Robert is a very good handyman.
(we charge by the hour for these extra services)

Please contact us for a link to our extensive online photo gallery of pets etc that we have cared for.

Thank you for your interest.

Both Robert and Victoria are lovely people. We returned to our home as it was when we left it. The animals were well cared for and Victoria often kept us up to date on how they were doing via text message. We ended up extending our trip by another 2 days and both were happy to stay a little longer which was very helpful to us. I would not hesitate to use Robert and Victoria again for a future house sit if available.
 
REBECCA (Green Hills Range SA, Feb 2020 - 1 week 2 days)
Thanks you Robert and Victoria for taking such great care of our house and animals! It allowed my wife and myself to have a stress free holiday even knowing that you had to take our poor dog to the vet for treatment. The house was left in a pristine state and all the plants survived the extremely hot weather, so well done to you two. A job well done and totally appreciated. These guys are the best!
 
ROSS (Strathalbyn SA, Nov 2019 - 2 weeks 2 days)
Robert and Victoria cared for our home garden and pets as if they were their own. Digby took a day to come round to us being back. I think he had lots of affection during our time away. I have no hesitation in recommending Robert and Victoria for other house sits. Thank you both.
 
TESSA (Hewett SA, Oct 2019 - 2 weeks 5 days)
I cannot thank Robert and Victoria enough for the wonderful job they did, taking care of our 3 dogs, 2 cats and home. They clearly formed a bond with the animals very quickly and did far more than I asked of them, or expected of them. My pets can be challenging and R&V have cared for them as if they were their own. They sent regular updates and photographs so that I could relax and enjoy my holiday. Thank you so much. I would absolutely use them again and recommend them to anyone with pets, ... MORE
 
DIANNE (North Haven SA, Sep 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
Robert and Victoria looked after our 2 elderly cats and our house while we went away on 4 weeks holiday interstate. We can thoroughly recommend these two very nice people to house sit. They kept in touch with a text message or two to let us know how things were going and how the cats were. They were also very prompt in responding too. When we returned home the house was spotless and sparkling, lawns mowed and 2 very happy and contented cats. Thank you Robert and Victoria we would certainly ... MORE
 
JEFF (Marino SA, Aug 2019 - 4 weeks)
Thank you Jeff and Amanda,it was a pleasure to sit your 2 lovely cats and your fab home.It was spotless when we arrived and we are pleased you thought we left it the same. I think Robert enjoyed the lawn mowing with your mower, he said he wants one if we ever get another lawn LOL.! always ask if ... MORE
No rating Robert and Victoria were wonderful house and pet sitters - highly experienced, good communicators - flexible with organising the 'meet and greet' which was very much appreciated. Bonnie (our fur baby) was depressed when the lovely Victoria and Robert left, sitting in her chair nearly all day obviously wondering where her new friends had gone! Thank you for looking after our Bonnie and out house so well.
SAMANTHA (Daw Park SA, Jun 2019 - 2 weeks 3 days)
Thanks so much to Robert and Victoria. They did a great job looking after Lottie, the house and garden. I am happy to recommend them for housesitting and would love it if we could coordinate another sit.
 
PETRA (Glengowrie SA, Feb 2019 - 1 week)
Robert & Victoria looked after our much loved dog and house for 2 1/2 weeks. We were delighted with the way they looked after both while we holidayed. We will definitely be calling them next time we need house sitters.
 
JANE (Seacliff SA, Jan 2019 - 1 week 6 days)
Thankyou Jane, We felt so comfortable in your lovely home and Chino was a delight to care for - he really loves his walks.
Robert and Victoria did a great job house sitting for us for 4 weeks. We came back to a very healthy garden although they had 40 degrees days. The house was clean, the dusting was done, the fridge was wiped clean and the car was vacuum cleaned!!! Our dog Ella looked really healthy and relaxed when we came home. The Guinea pigs also had VIP treatment in their care. Thank you very much Rob and Victoria! All the best for your future house sits. Kind regards. Nathalie and Geoff
 
NATHALIE & GEOFF (NORMANVILLE SA, Dec 2018 - 3 weeks)
Can't thank Robert & Victoria enough for the wonderful care for our animals and home. Our Dogs were sulking after they left. they kept in touch throughout our 2 weeks away. Lovely couple and very thoughtful. Many thanks
 
TROY & ALLISON (McLaren Vale SA, Oct 2018 - 2 weeks 2 days)
Robert and Victoria come highly recommended by myself and my partner for house sitting our pets and property. We have 4 cats, 2 dogs and a turtle that needed looking after for 2.5 weeks and we returned home to very happy animals! Even the turtle! They kept us informed with updates regularly while we were overseas and looked after our pets like they were their own. We have 2 particularly nervous cats that needed special attention and they were very relaxed and contented cats when we returned ... MORE
