We are a married couple, retired and experienced in all forms of house sitting, so be assured we will happily take care of your home, pets and animals as if they were our own.
We have never smoked, and are trustworthy and reliable with Police clearance / references / endorsements etc.
Our recent years have been spent living in China, as university and private school teachers of english.
Prior to that Peter's employment included managing a retirement village in QLD, and managing property maintenance contracts in New Zealand.
Christine spent many years as an Office Manager in a government department in New Zealand then worked in Medicare offices in Australia.

We have raised five children with their innumerable pets and enjoy a challenge.
Peter was raised with a farming background in N.Z. and has animal handling experience.
We have an excellent work history with many references both work related and personal.
It can be scary to let strangers into your home, but please be assured we will treat your home, pets, pool etc with the same loving care and respect that we would give our own.
We would be delighted to hear from you.
We like to visit and meet folks before starting a sit, so both party's are relaxed and comfortable with each other, if that could be arranged.
Please feel free to check our attachments/referals/reviews on this site .

No rating Peter and Christine, looked after our place for eleven weeks and were terrific. They looked after our dog, cows and chickens. Our dog had been anxious before we left but they settled her very well. She loved them. All the animals thrived while we were away as did the garden under their care. And they looked after the house perfectly too. Their communication was great, They visited before we set off, sent emails and photos to keep us informed about home, picked us up from the airport and ... MORE

Peter and Christine were great. We came home to a clean well looked after house. Most important was that they looked after our cats. The cats were all happy and adjusted to Peter and Christine and they all came out for pats and loves. I would recommend Peter and Christine as they were excellent.
LYNETTE (Ormeau QLD, May 2019 - 2 weeks 5 days)
Peter and Christine are an older couple - Christine an ESL online teacher and Peter enjoys house sitting in his retirement. They are very quiet, easy going and didn't mind that we were coming and going throughout this 3 months ... we appreciated them looking after our delightful four legged (dog) family member in our absence. They kept the inside need and tidy. Our dog enjoyed their company and missed them when they left.
DESMA (Swan Reach VIC, Aug 2018 - 2 months 2 weeks)
No rating Peter and Christine were a lovely couple. Clearly sought after. We were lucky to find a gap in their busy schedule of house sits. They were friendly and professional from the gecko and kept us well informed of how they and how fur babies were managing with short sweet texts each day allaying any concerns we may have had about being so far away from our loved ones. Would not hesitate in having them sit for us again.
ANNA LOUGHREY (Rippleside VIC, Mar 2018 - 4 days)
No rating We had Peter and Christine house sit for us for 6 weeks over Christmas (2017/2018). They did an amazing job looking after our pets (dog, fish and 2 cats), garden and house. They were very communicative, letting us know about our pets and how things were going over our time away. The house was immaculate when we got home. I would definitely recommend Peter and Christine for housesitting and looking after your loved pets - so take that break you have always wanted, get Peter and Christine ... MORE

No rating Peter and Christine looked after our house and pets exceptionally well. Without asking Peter kept our lawn mowed. He also kept the water up to our garden during the hot spell. Our two dogs were sorry we were home as they looked after them like they were their own. The house was clean and tidy and well looked after. I would recommend them to anyone who would like to use their services. They are also exceptionally nice people.
MARK (Frankston VIC, Nov 2017 - 2 weeks 6 days)
No rating Peter and Chris looked after our house for a month and during that time we received daily updates. We returned home this morning to pets who were obviously extremely well cared for together with a very clean house and a mown lawn. It was a lovely surprise to also be left with fresh milk, bread and a pretty new plant. Anyone who has Peter and Chris come to stay is very lucky indeed.
JULIE & RICH (Maryknoll VIC, Oct 2017 - 4 weeks)
No rating Peter and Christine are just wonderful, They were welcomed into our home with open arms, all our Critters just loved them. On our arrival home, Christine had cooked up this amazing corn meat cabbage and baked assortment of Vegies in Morocan spice, was to die for. Our home was loved as their own. Totally recommend this beautiful couple for a sit on a large or small sit. Thank you again we really appreciated how wonderful and kind you were to us and our family of Critters <3 Welcome back

No rating My husband Peter and I highly recommend Peter and Christine as farm animal/house sitters. Peter and Christine looked after our farm for a week which allowed us the opportunity to take a break. There was an instant bond between them and we knew straight away that we could confidently leave the farm in their capable hands. Most importantly to us was that we knew our animals would be fine. Peter and Christine kept us up to date with regular emails. The animals were lovingly cared for. Our house ... MORE
