The queenslandsitters

60, Retired

66, Retired

Originally from Melbourne we moved to Cairns in 1988 and happily lived in the tropics for 22 years, first owning & operating a scuba dive school & certified dive company & then successfully owning & operating a beautiful & successful Bed & Breakfast, "Billabong B & B". Due to our love & passion for travelling we sold the B&B in 2011, travelled extensively overseas & east coast Australia until the beginning of 2012 when we did our first house/pet sit & have not looked back, we absolutely love it, this is our lifestyle choice & we cherish it.

We are reliable, trustworthy, experienced house/pet sitters having completed over 70 housesits to date. We are fit, active, non smokers,love life, enjoy walking & exploring the different areas where we are staying, we love animals & when we owned our own home in Cairns we always had pets. We have excellent references & happy to email any or all to prospective home owners, they can be verified as genuine & contact details & phone numbers for the home owners are available on request.

Quite often it is not possible to meet personally beforehand but we find a skype video call works well for both parties to establish an early relationship. If you would like to have a chat by skype or phone or require further information please contact us. We are available for housesitting from 13th January 2020.

Skype name billabong.b.b.

Warm regards,
Vicky & Ted Riddle

Vicky & Ted looked after our place and I can not speak highly enough of how amazing these two are. The communication was professional right from the start and they are two of the nicest people you will ever meet plus most importantly they looked after our place better than we do! Ted even gave me a lift to the airport and offered to pick us up on return, they rescued our garden from some challenges we were having and had it looking brand new on our return. Vicky even had baked a lunch for us so ... MORE

Thank you so much Vicky and Ted for looking after our house and Bandit. Our house was so clean and tidy and Bandit was so well looked after. I hope you can house sit for us again I. The future.

Hello Janice, Thank you so much for excellent reference, really appreciate it. Warm Regards, Vicky Riddle
Vicky and Ted were wonderful house and pet sitters and I would highly recommend them. They were very respectful, tidy and washed all the linen and put the sheets back on the bed. I would have them again for any house sits. Thanks so much!
MARGIE (Newmarket QLD, Mar 2020 - 2 days)
Vicky and Ted were wonderful house sitters. This is only the second time we have had house sitters stay with us and they did not disappoint. We returned to very happy doggies and one immaculate house which was so lovely. We would have them back again without a doubt. We wish them well in their next house sit and hope we will see them again one day :) Thanks again from Lily, Josh, Isaiah and the Bulldogs. x

Thanks Vicky and Ted. This is the first time that I have used sitters unknown to me. Thanks for a wonderful experience! I came home to 2 happy dogs and an immaculate house. Thanks for your care and please do come back again.
CAROL (Scarborough QLD, Nov 2019 - 3 days)
We were very happy with Vicki and Ted. When we met them, my wife and I felt that they were genuine people whom we could trust. Whilst we were away, they kept us well updated with emails and text messages. They also took great care of our dog Polo and my daughters lizard Pablo. Our neighbours have commented that they saw our dog happily walked/exercised everyday. Upon return, our house was in immaculate condition, lawn freshly mowed, pool well maintained, cut flowers in a vase and a home cooked ... MORE

Vicky & Tom just completed a housesit for us. Our furkids loved them. They looked after everything with great care. We would highly recommend them.
KAREN AND DAN (Tewantin QLD, May 2019 - 1 week)
Vicky and Ted house sat for myself and my partner while we were away in Bali for 10 days. They did an awesome job while we were away. Our house was left very clean and tidy and the pot plants were all well watered and cared for. Most importantly, our beloved animals - 2 dogs, 3 cats and 1 turtle - were all extremely contented and relaxed when we returned home. I was so grateful for their kindness and attention to detail. They are a really lovely personable and friendly couple, and I have ... MORE

Vicky and Ted are quite simply - the very best. My old dachshund loved them and they gave him a great time taking him to the beach and walks around the block. They are such a pleasant, likeable and sincere couple you know immediately you don't have to worry about leaving your house and pets. The house was so immaculate when I arrived home I didn't want to spoil it by unpacking. Thanks Vicky and Ted for having my back while I recuperated.
LORRAINE (Parrearra QLD, Jan 2019 - 2 weeks 2 days)
We can't recommend Vicky & Ted enough. We are very busy business people and it was so wonderful for us to have a break and be able to relax and know that our fur babies were in such good hands. They left our home immaculately clean and our animals very happy. It would be a privilege to have them housesit for us again. I'd be happy to refer them to my closest friends.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
