Still Trucking



..We are an active couple who have been retired for 7 and a half years now, non smokers. ,travelling with a 22' self contained caravan.
We do have a dog who travells with us. He is an English Staffy,a 3yo rescue dog who is obedient,house trained, loves other dogs,children,and people, but not sure about cats. He almost never not a watch dog.!
When we're not traveling we live at our home in South Australia.
We have volunteered at a few places along the way..including caring for dogs,cats and other small animals at Helga's boarding kennel in Darwin for several months,caring for birds at the Flying High bird sanctuary in Childers Qld,as well as 4 weeks helping out on what was , the 200 acre eco cottages and donkey farm,Destiny Boonah at Boonah in Queensland.
Following that we have also minded horses,dogs,cats,chooks and birds at a house sit near Ballarat. also cared for dogs,horses,donkeys and sheep on a property near Bendigo,as well as some properties with a mixture of the above in Qld and for which we have endorsements.
Recently we have done caretaking at the Border Store in Kakadu NT as well as Coober Pedy in SA.
Coming from a rural background,we enjoy caring for most animals,but will consider a variety of different jobs.
During the months May to August we are generally not available to house sit in the Southern States,as our preferred locations indicate.

No rating Phil and Jan were terrific ....we would not hesitate in recommending them to anybody who is looking for a break and have your home and pets looked after with the best care possible. We cannot speak highly enough but would love them to come back in 2017 if they are in our area. It has been years since we have even thought of leaving our nest because of "who can we get" to look after our family. We now know and thank you Aussie Housesitters for giving people access to this marvelous service ... MORE

No rating Jan and PhiI! We cannot speak highly enough of them. For a month they looked after our home, gardens, dogs, cat and farm animals. During this time, We were updated with pictures and messages of our animals telling us that they were fine, and that everything was ok back home! On arrival home, We found our house immaculately clean, a tidy Garden, mowed lawns and very happy animals, our home was spotless! Jan and Phil gave us a great feeling of confidence that everything was going to be ok, and ... MORE

No rating To Jan and Phil Kemble, We cannot thank you enough for looking after our beloved animals and our home. The dogs obviously relished all the attention and care you gave them, as well as our donkeys and horses too. The house was spotless and our lovely patch of grass is very healthy. We hope you enjoyed your stay and you are very welcome to visit and stay over with us anytime you are in the area. I would certainly recommend you both as the perfect house sitters for sure. Keep in touch and ... MORE
