Tina & John are the very best house sitters that we have ever had!! How lucky we were that they applied to look after our fur babies & our home. We received regular photos and updates while we were away & we came home to a very happy household. Our elderly (19 year old) cat can be very shy at times but immediately demanded their attention so we were very comfortable leaving her in their care as she needs medication twice a day. Our Cavoodle absolutely adored both of them and seemed very ... MORE

What a great experience for our first housesitters! Tina and John came highly recommended by a friend and worked out great. They were reliable, flexible and friendly along with any other qualities you may want of a house-sitter. They took on a weird and somewhat sick cat with confidence and did a great job of feeding her back to health. Would use them again any time and happy to give references, thanks Tina and John!

Thanks Sandra & Rob for your lovely review :-)
Tina & John were excellent sitters we came home to a very well cared for house & garden, plus pets all very happy would definitely recommend them & wish we could see them again.
LINDA (Lakes Entrance VIC, Feb 2020 - 14 days)
Hi Linda & Richard, Thank-you so much for your lovely review . Shanti, Dolly & Lucy are all so lovely to be around & care for. You have a beautiful home....two weeks flew by! Thanks again for letting us house & pet sit. Tina & John :-)
We were so lucky to have scored Tina and John for a weekend house and pet sitting gig. We happily would have let them sit longer. They were great to communicate and ease my mind given it was my first experience with this website. Upon meeting them I was relieved and happy to leave my babies (dogs) in their care and my home. Over the weekend I received loving updates and photos and came home to an immaculate house and happy dogs. Highly recommend Tina and John and wish they could come back in ... MORE

Hi Marita, Thank-you so much for your lovely review! If we were available we would of loved to house sit again... but unfortunately it is the same time we are also on holiday and getting married! Hopefully we will meet again in the near future! Tina & John :-)
Tina and john were wonderful.. Came home and the cats were fat, the plants were alive, and all was spotless. Very easy to make arrangements with and extremely accommodating when we had to come back a day early. No hesitation to recommend them.
CHRIS (Altona VIC, Dec 2019 - 3 weeks)
Thanks for your lovely review Chris! We loved house & pet sitting for you.. Flossy & Macca are such characters :-)
Tina & John were fantastic. It was our first time leaving Tigger with a house sitter, which was quite nerve racking given he has health problems and requires twice daily medicating, but they made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. They communicated with us regularly as the sit was approaching and provided us with regular updates whilst we were away and terribly cute photos of Tigger. The apartment was emaculate with them having washed both our linen that we were intending to ... MORE
JESSICA (Richmond VIC, Dec 2019 - 6 days)
Thank-you Jess & Nick for your lovely review and thank-you for choosing us! Tigger is such a lovely cat :-)
I cannot recommend higher John and Tina - my hoarde of animals loved them and they did a splendid job looking after the lot. Not only where the animals well tended but the house was clean and tidy when I arrived home. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone and hope they can sit for me another time.
YUNA (Simpsons Creek VIC, Nov 2019 - 16 days)
Thankyou for your lovely review Yuna. We loved taking care of all your animals :-)
Tina and John are a conscious, responsible, caring and lovely couple who did a great job house sitting for us. Nothing seemed to be a problem for them. We highly recommend them for any position.

Thanks Rachael :-)
I was so nervous using this service but Tina and John exceeded all my expectations! Such genuine, caring, friendly and responsible people. I had constant updates and pictures of my two dogs and they were spoilt with walks and affection. I arrived home to a beautifully clean house with sheets changed, veggies thriving, a lovely welcome home note and two very content dogs. I would highly recommend Tina and John to anyone. Thank you guys

CHERYLL (Machans Beach QLD, Jul 2019 - 2 weeks)
Thanks Cheryll... we loved looking after Sid & Misty :-)
Tina and John recently house and dog sat for us we were immediately relaxed when meeting. We were also relieved when we received regular text messages with pictures of our dog looking very happy. On our return our home was immaculate and our dog healthy and happy. We would always welcome Tina and John back for future housesitting and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for the best. Cheers guys. Hugs from Tinker
RODNEY (Trinity Park QLD, May 2019 - 3weeks)
Thankyou Rodney & Murray! Big hugs to Tinker :-)
Tina and John are a beautiful couple with big hearts. They took care and loved our fur babies very well. They cared for our home and thank you for filling the wood box and emptying the ash John. I would not hesitate to rrecommend.
SONJA (Obi Obi QLD, May 2019 - 9 days)
Thankyou Sonja :-)
Tina and John were absolutely lovely, and took great care of our home and fur babies while we were away. The house was left amazingly tidy when we got home, and all contact between us was very quick and easy. They were also very flexible with our needs. We hope they are available next time we go away, as we would love to have Tina and John house sit for us again, and I'm sure our fur babies would too! Thank you so much!
CLAIRE (Bli Bli QLD, May 2019 - 3 days)
Thankyou Claire for a lovely review :-)
Tina and John were fantastic house sitters! We could tell that Jovi had a great few weeks being cared for by them, and the house was in very good hands. Loved having them sit and would welcome them back anytime. Highly recommended.

We loved having John and Tina look after our home and our animals, We have A LOT going on here at the farm and they were wonderful with it all. We couldn't recommend them more highly and would welcome them back anytime.

Thankyou Jodie for your lovely review... we hope to see you guys again soon... :-)
Tina and John were absolutely lovely, they took great care of our pets and home, and sent regular updates, including photos which were particularly appreciated by the kids. We would definitely recommend Tina and John to house sit, and would gratefully have them back too.
APRIL (Medowie NSW, Mar 2019 - 1 week)
Thank-you April
Tina and John were fabulous house sitters. Such a lovely couple and very interesting with their work - environmentally focussed, making a difference. They arrived in their van the evening before which was a bonus as I had better opportunity to go over everything and get to know these charming people. They took great interest and care of Zoe, very attentive to her needs plus looked after the house well. I look forward to seeing them in the future. I highly recommend them. PS. Once again, so ...

FRAN (Thirroul NSW, Feb 2019 - 2 days)
Thankyou for a lovely review Fran... we had a great time meeting you, looking after Zoe and would definitely love to house sit again if we are in the area.
Tina and John were the best housesitters ever :) it was almost upsetting to watch Ringo jump up every few minutes after they left to see if they were coming back.....she actually cried when she realised they had actually gone :( On my return the house was cleaner than when I left :) Would highly recommend these guys anytime.... Can't thank them enough... In fact they promise to visit us next summer ☀
