We are a mature and non-smoking couple who are friendly and easygoing. We keep things clean and tidy, are very respectful and treat other's property as we would our own. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and if you engage our services, would expect the same in return on our arrival.
Iain is now retired, previously working as a Police Officer in the UK for 30 years. When not house-sitting and caring for other's homes and pets, Iain enjoys keeping busy fishing & playing golf, and assisting with our travel blog.
Tarryn runs her own business online providing Consulting and Freelance work to other Businesses. She loves long walks and hiking, travelling and exploring new places.
We travel with our gorgeous girl Ash, a female 9-year-old yellow Labrador. Her role is co-ordinating the pack to ensure plenty of time is spent at every possible beach and park along the way and enjoying meeting others on the road with a waggy tail & a huge smile :-).
For the first 3 years of her life, she grew up with 2 cats for company and has no problem integrating with other animals.
We take Ash everywhere with us and is walked every day, sometimes multiple times. So be assured, your precious pet(s) won't miss out and will get lots of attention and playtime too.
We absolutely love animals, especially dogs :-), and have both spent almost 2 years working as volunteers at Shenton Park Dog Refuge in Perth, WA where we were taught how to handle and manage dogs with a wide variety of traits and personalities.
We are both active, fit and healthy, so will be able to exercise your pets as much as you'd like whilst you're away.
If you were to use our services, whilst away you would receive regular contact, with updates and photos of your loved ones so that you could relax and know that your home and pets are being loved and well looked after.
If convenient, we are also happy to come and meet you in person, or over a Skype call prior to the start date of the house-sit.
Police checks and references can also be provided on request.
We'd love to help in any way that we can, so please contact us with any questions and we look forward to speaking soon.
Iain, Tarryn & Ash :-)
Tarryn, Iain and Ash (their dog) were wonderful house sitters. Their communication was like no other- putting our minds at ease at every step of the way with frequent photos/videos and details of our beloved dog. They went the extra mile in terms of keeping our house in top condition, with attention to detail- cleaning out the fireplace, mowing the lawn and weeding the garden. When we arrived home, we could tell that Lucy had been well taken care of. She had as wonderful a holiday as we did! ... MORETarryn, Iain and Ash (their dog) were wonderful house sitters.

We would HIGHLY recommend them (and Ash) as a fantastic choice of a house sitter.

Iain and Tarryn,
The feeling is mutual. Beau is still walking around looking for Ash. Ian was very happy on his departure and again at return, knowing you were in charge of the house and four foots. The care and attention you showed to our fur babies was obvious in the beautiful photos you sent to us. Again, many thanks for allowing my husband to come and see me.

We can't thank Tarryn and Iain enough for the care they gave our girls. Coco and Mindy have been well and truly spoiled and were sad to see Tarryn, Iain and their lovely Ash go when we came home. We received constant updates and photos as to how the girls were behaving. Our house was spotless, it was a pleasure to have had them stay and we hope they will come again.
Tarryn and Iain are the ideal house sitters. As soon as meeting them we felt comfortable and confident in the knowledge our home and cats would be well cared for and we weren't disappointed. We came home to find a sparkling clean house and two very happy and contented cats. I would have no hesitation recommending these two lovely people as house sitters and hope they will be able to sit for us again in the future
