After a busy 2019/2020 house/pet sitting season which kept us in Qld except for a 2 month sit in Melbourne 2020 looks just as busy. Many of our house/pet sits over last year have been repeat visits and a couple new clients that we will see again in the future.

We have spent many years in rural and remote locations around Australia and overseas, so are used to pumps, tanks and septics.

When we are not pet/house sitting, we live on our yacht which is moored on the Mary River at Maryborough. Do try to get out there for a few days to keep things working on the boat.

Mike is experienced in pool care, and salt water tropical fish tanks, is mechanically minded and loves to spend time working on his computer sorting his photos from our extensive travels here and overseas, while I love to cook when given the opportunity to spend time in a real kitchen. Living on a boat has it's limits domestically. Daily walking dogs is not a problem. My other activity is lawn bowls, so just love being in and around Hervey Bay or close to a bowls club, especially one that is covered.
Recently we lost our best pal Jack, our 12 year old Blue Heeler who accompanied us on all our house/pet sits. We miss him greatly and he has always been a big part of our travels and love of animals

Over the years we have house sat in Cairns, Darwin, Thursday Island, Wagga Wagga, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Hervey Bay and Traralgon in Gippsland Vic.

Police Certificates and references both written and telephone are available.

Thanking Gail and John for doing a great job of looking after Georgie and my house. House was perfect and Georgie well looked after. Definitely recommend this couple. Would love to have them again.

Gail & Mike recently looked after garden & our menagerie of cats, dogs and chooks whilst we were travelling overseas. Gail stayed in touch and kept our minds at ease whilst we were travelling. We came home to a lovely clean house and no dramas. They even looked after the neighbours pets as well for a few days! Nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend Gail & Mike and look forward to having them come to stay again.
