Thriving Too Care

Retired Primary School Teacher

Retired Marine Park Manager

Hello Everyone,

We are a fit, non-smoking, honest, reliable, mature and "young" Australian couple who retired a while ago from teaching (Mary) and marine park management (Tony, a Qld JP) positions.

We live in Townsville and are seeking house-sitting in Canberra and/or Brisbane and/or South East Queensland and/or NE NSW for various periods during 2020-21. We love these regions and know them well having been raised and successfully completing many housesits there.

We have proven and extensive worldwide experience (68 successful sits to date with many repeats), and excellent references, in house-sitting and caring for homes and pets as well as aquariums, gardens and swimming pools. We live quietly and respect our neighbours.

Since retiring we have traveled for long periods away from our home. We love travel, seeing new places and meeting new people, and are keen to do as much as possible. We just revel in the joy of travel and the experience of other places, and quickly befriend locals. We also pride ourselves on buying whatever we need and costing home owners nothing. We confidently assure you that both your pets and home will be cared for as our own.

If you are interested in exploring the possibility that we may be able to assist, please DO contact us ASAP. We would be more than happy to email references and photographs of ourselves.

With best wishes and in anticipation of being of assistance.

No rating Tony and Mary Stokes were marvellous housesitters in February 2017. My cat Fred was well looked after and the house was immaculate upon my return. i would not hesitate to recommend Tony and Mary to anyone seeking peace of mind whilst away from home

Returned home to a SPOTLESS house. They even cleaned the fridge! Left us a nice note and some banana bread. Plants are green and our small dog wasn't over fed. Both our cat and dog looked quite content in any photos sent to us while we were away. Fantastic to come home to everything in order and happy pets.

Safe house!

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