Trevor and Diane did a great job caring for our home and cats while we were away "Grey Nomading" The house was left spotless and the cats were happy. Plants well care for and lawns were mowe.They even put some milk and bread in the fridge for us so we didn't have to rush off to the supermarket as soon as we got home. I would definitely contact them to see if they are available if we go away again. Jane and Charlie Hutchins

Diane and Trevor are outstanding housesitters. My home was tidy, mowed and sparkling clean when I came home and my fur babies looked so content and pampered. They are so thoughtful and low maitenance, I knew my home and fur babies were in amazing hands. Thankyou so much!
TANYA (Forster NSW, Mar 2020 - 2 weeks 3 days)
We felt very confident and comfortable leaving our home and dog with Trevor and & Diane knowing they would be looked after with loving care. We were very grateful on arriving home later than expected to find bread and milk in our refrigerator and a beautiful bunch of flowers on the table, Our home was in an immaculate condition along with our plants. We also appreciated emails from Trevor along with photos of our dog, Would be very happy to recommend Trevor and Diane.
ROBERT AND HELEN (Empire Bay NSW, Feb 2020 - 25 days)
This was our first house sitter experience and it could not have been more positive if we tried! Trevor and Diane exceeded our expectations in every way! We came home to an immaculate house (cleaner than we even left it), well looked after gardens and plants, a sparkling blue pool, cleaned linen, bread and milk and flowers and most importantly, a super happy, clean, fluffy pup who seemed to have become more youthful (you must be great company and great walkers T&D!). The lovely Trevor and Diane ... MORE

Trevor and Diane were amazing sitters. They were brilliant in the lead up to my trip, kept me constantly updated on the cat and the house while I was away and left the property absolutely spotless. Will definitely look to book them in future and highly recommend them.
JESS (Chippendale NSW, Dec 2019 - 3.5 weeks)
Trevor & Diane are a lovely couple who maintained our house, pool, indoor plants and garden for a month. We were very impressed with their level of care and thoughtfulness and therefore have no hesitation in recommending them and would definitely use them again.
DEBRA (Miranda NSW, Nov 2019 - 4 weeks)
Trevor and Diane were great. Communication from the start was fantastic. Our home was looked after and left exactly the way we left it. Our garden was taken care of and our dog was given the very best care and attention. Trevor and Diane would send us a weekly email updating us with any news from home about our dog along with a photo which was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend Trevor and Diane to house sit. They were great and i would use them again :)

We can not thank Trevor and Diane enough for their help - they were truely fantastic sitters. They took amazing care of our cats & chickens, watered the plants and I swear the house was cleaner when we got back than when we left. They also thoughtfully left bread, milk & wine - all the essentials ;) on hand for our return Their communication was excellent throughout their stay - we received regular updates and pictures of the animals.

Trevor and Diane are so lovely and trustworthy. Both seem very honest an reliable which is such a comfort when you leave your home and your beloved pets. My cats didn't want to know me when I got back ! They must have shown them a lot of love!
KITSA (Sans Souci NSW, Jun 2019 - 4 weeks)
Trevor & Diane are very quiet & considerate, & cared for our home & garden very well. The care & love of my old "fur person", was exceptional, I think she still misses the nurses from Trevor & Thankyou for the lovely photo's of her. Thanks Diane for stocking the fridge with essentials for our homecoming!
MICK & ALLISON (Evatt ACT, Mar 2019 - 10 weeks.)
Trevor & Diane looked after my 6 cats & home exceptionally well. I had never used a service like this before and I'm hoping when I go away in the future, that Trevor & Diane will be available :) They sent me updates with photos of each cat. I was able to relax knowing that my 6 furry friends were being well cared for. My house was pristine upon arriving back from holidays including fresh linen, bread & milk. Super Thankful!
CASEY (Milperra NSW, Mar 2019 - 1 week 4 days)
We were absolutely delighted that we had Trevor and Diane as housesitters. They looked after our small farm, cows, horse, fish and birds and most importantly our very spoilt energetic dog. Also extensive gardens, pot plants, spa and pool. We arrived back to find our home shiny and clean, our gardens and plants flourishing, a glistening pool and spa and contented and happy animals, including our spoilt pooch. Trevor and Diane are extremely thorough and their professional attitude to housesitting ... MORE
ROSS & DEBRA (Binna Burra NSW, Feb 2019 - 4 weeks)
We were very anxious about going on our first holiday away from our puppy. Trevor and Diane made us feel very confident and comfortable that our dog would be looked after with loving care. They even left some bread and milk for us in the fridge! Thanks again guys xx
AMY (Wakerley QLD, Dec 2018 - 1 week 2 days)
Trevor and Diane went above and beyond what we had expected. Photos of our pets via email. Bread and milk in the fridge for our arrival home. Even though we said don't bother mowing our lawns they did. Our house was sparkling clean on arrival home and they garden well watered. I would highly recommend them as house sitters and I trust them completely as such down to earth honest people. Thanks again guys. Great job

No rating Thank you Trevor and Diane for house sitting my house and large number of pets. If it wasn't for you two, I would not have been able to have a holiday with my elderly father. I came back to a very clean and tidy house and my pets well cared for. And Dollar my dog is still looking for you. Thank you very much and happy house sitting on your new journey. Lyn

PAIGE (Kingscliff NSW, Jul 2018 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating It was a great comfort to know that such lovely people, Trevor and Diane, were taking care of our place while we were away. We arrived home to a clean home, with all of our plants and chickens looking very happy. The kids were chuffed to receive a photo of their chickens also. Trevor and Diane's communication from beginning to end. is excellent. We were surprised to even find a few treats on our return, best of all a bottle of milk so that we could make a nice cuppa after a particularly ... MORE
HEIDI (Brighton QLD, Apr 2018 - 4 weeks)
No rating I was lucky enough to have Trevor & Diane accept my booking to care for my house & my aging little fox terrier while I was away. My trip was grueling, helping my sister through multiple surgeries, it was such a comfort to not have to worry about the house & my sweet little dog. They sent me an uplifting update & a lovely picture of my dog during my trip which was great to receive. I have arrived home today absolutely exhausted. My house & yard look beautiful & my little dog is very happy & ... MORE
LYNN (Labrador, Gold Coast QLD, Mar 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating Trevor and Diane looked after our cats, plants and house for nearly seven weeks while we were overseas in Asia/Europe. We were in regular contact via email on how things were going and especially how our cats were. Their return emails were especially reassuring Upon our return we found our house to be in excellent condition, our plants had doubled and our cats extremely content. I would highly recommend Trevor and Diane as sitters and wish them all the best in the future. Lesley and Chris
LESLEY (Carrara QLD, Sep 2017 - 1 week 2 days)

MICHELE (Worongary Gold Coast QLD, May 2017 - 9 Days)
No rating I was extremely fortunate to have had Trevor and Dianne house sit for me and look after my two cats for a period of six weeks in April/May 2017. Trevor provided regular progress reports while I was overseas, which were most welcome. In addition, when I returned home, the house had been left in immaculate condition. My cats had obviously been very well looked after and were healthy and happy. I certainly hope that Trevor and Dianne will be available to house sit for me again on a future ... MORE
RICHARD AINSWORTH (Banora Point NSW, Apr 2017 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating We were looking for a professional house-sitter as we run a small business from home and required part time staff to have access while we were away - Trevor and Diane accommodated this request while maintaining the house and garden including front lawn cutting as it grows ferociously during the summer months! Very happy with what they did and would gladly use their service again if dates fitted :)
LINDA (South Moreton Bay Islands QLD, Jan 2017 - 4 weeks)
No rating Trevor and Diane are a reliable and pleasant couple. We stayed in touch by email, they also sent us photos of our beautiful cat. We arrived home to a tidy house and happy pet. Would we accept Trevor and Diane again as future house sitters? Yes we would. Kind Regards Steve and Lorena
STEVE & LORENA (Knockrow NSW, Jan 2017)
No rating We can recommend Trevor and Diane as meticulous house and pet sitters who can be relied upon to look after everything, from ancient cat to garden, birdbaths and spotlessly clean house on our return (including fresh bread and milk in the fridge, and a bottle of wine!). We would be very happy to repeat the experience. (December 2016)
REBECCA (Mullumbimby NSW, Dec 2016)
No rating It is with pleasure and confidence that I recommend Trevor and Diane as reliable, honest house and cat sitters. We were very happy with our communications and arrangements both before and after the period we were away. We came home to the house spick and span, and the garden so well watered that everything had thrived. The cat made the usual swift adjustment to those who do the feeding. So I think that went very well too. Trevor and Diane are experienced and take a really responsible approach ... MORE
GAIL (Newcastle NSW, Sep 2016 - 1 month 2 weeks)
No rating It was a delight to have Trevor and Diane take care of my home whilst I was travelling for three months. They couldn't have been more helpful in sending mail and dealing with any issues that occurred. The house and yard were left in immaculate condition. I LOVED the freshly ironed linen - something I never do myself! I would highly recommend Trevor and Diane as housesitters. If ratings were possible it would be a five star!
PATRICIA (West Wollongong NSW, Jun 2016 - 3 months 1 week)
No rating We found Trevor and Diane, to be wonderful house sitters, accommodating when issues with the house and inspections as the house was on the market. Highly recommended and if I needed a house sit again and they were available I would snatch them up as quickly as possible. I can be used a reference for T&D anytime.
AINSLIE (Tura Beach NSW, Feb 2016 - 2 - 3 months)
No rating It really was a pleasure to have Trevor & Diane look after our house & cat. We came back to a beautifully clean house & pool. Trevor really charmed our timid cat. We would certainly like them to look after our place in the future and recommend them to other house owners. Regards, Richard & Linda Lack (phone 02 49433783)
