WE come from Ballarat in Victoria where we lived on 5 acres and had a wide variety of animals, both domestic and farm, over the passed 30 years, We are multi skilled, handypeople, experienced in most general repairs and maintenance if the necessity arises. We are non smokers, very tidy, and trustworthy. We love animals, enjoy gardening and being outdoors. We are currantly touring Australia towing a caravan. We would love to come to your part of the world and would consider it a privilage to care for your home and pets Having always owned our own home, we understand the importance of having someone trustworthy and reliable to care for and maintain your home.

REFERENCE: (1) Hi Renato and Debbie, Leanne and I want to thank you for going to so much trouble to look after our 3 dogs, cat and the birds. I'm so impressed with the state of our home. You left it cleaner than we did before your stay. The gardens are great, thank you, and everything is as it should be. We regularly allow house sitters look after our home and you are most certainly the best we've had to date. I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who might need similar services so feel free to give them my mobile number to call me. Kind regards, Don and Leanne.
REFERENCE: (2) This is a letter of recommendation for Deb and Renato. We had the pleasure of having them house sit for us for three weeks from February to March 2013. Not only did they do the most fantastic job of looking after our home and my animals I feel we have made some truly wonderful friends in the process. We not only came home to happy animals and a clean and looked after home; we came home to home cook soup as they heard we all were sick with the flue travelling home. Thank-you both so much it was wonderful and so caring of you. We would recommend you to anyone who is looking for the best for their home and family. My cats and dog are still missing you and I have promised them we will see you again. Happy house sitting and don't forget to come visit us again. Yours faithfully Maryanne
REFERENCE: (3) Debbie and Renato, Just wanted to say thank you for house sitting for us, it was great to know while we were away that the dogs were being spoiled rotten, the chooks and fish were fed and the house was being looked after. Being our first experience with house sitters it was so comforting to know that you both understood how much our home meant to us. Plus meeting you beforehand proved that the dogs absolutely adored you both. It really lets you relax on holidays when you know someone is looking after everything at home just as you would, if not better. Thank you so much for cleaning the house, we could just come home unpack and relax. Mowing the grass was the icing on the cake. We would be happy to recommend you both to anyone looking for a house sitter . Thanks again Adam and Wendy
REFERENCE: (4) Deb and Renato Thank you so much for house sitting. You did such a wonderful job, the dog was happy and healthy, the donkeys were very talkative. You left our house better than you found it . You respected the house management strategies, with efficiency. You kept us suitably informed and handled everything very professionally. You are both great communicators, we hope to keep up our friendship with you. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to other house owners. We hope that we will catch up with you again soon. Sue and Ian, one dog and two donkeys. April 2013
REFERENCE: (5) Reference for Renato & Deb; 10th November 2013
After continuously unsatisfactory house sitters who often appeared to just want somewhere to live, I was ready to abandon my dream of life on the road. "Why can't sitters treat my home as their own, after all we all look after our own homes and gardens don't we?" I often asked Brian.
Just when I was prepared to sell Tommy Truck (our Winnie) along came a couple who shocked me enough to try again. They even popped into Hervey Bay to meet us and say hello before we had decided if we were going to try one more trip.
Renato and Deb made my home their own and both house and garden were looked after with all the love and care that I would have bestowed upon it myself.
The garden was glorious, full of delicious veggies and the weeds were terrified to peep out of the ground in case Renato zapped them with his trusty weed gun. My home had the look and smell of being continually cleaned, not just fresh from a big clean up because we were returning.
Renato and Deb treated my home with love and respect and left it in better condition than when they arrived, consequently I have no hesitation in recommending them for any position they seek.
If you are thinking of lending them your home, call me to discover how lucky you are to have also found them.
My name is Pat and you can contact me by phone or email. I guarantee they will turn your idea of house sitters on its head and like us you may also make a couple of new 'forever' friends.
Pat

I have much pleasure in writing a reference for Debbie and Renato.
These lovely people have just completed our housesit here in Hervey Bay Queensland. They have been looking after our large house, our pool and grounds and managing our mail as well for the past 5 months.
We didn't know Debbie and Renato until just before we left our house with them. They had been house sitting just around the corner from us in fact.
When we met them we instantly felt comfortable with them and I guess we just "clicked".
It turned out that they come from Richard's home town of Ballarat and we thought this was a good omen as well.
Over the time we were overseas they kept us abreast of any concerns, scanning and forwarding our mail as necessary. We had a problem with our car over this time and they very capably handled getting it to our local car dealership for the necessary repairs and then safely home again.
They also handled our pool sorting out a chemical imbalance that occurred and keeping it in pristine condition.
The grounds and the garden looked beautiful all the plants thriving and lush. They had planted some herbs in our front garden for our use as well and Renato had added to our watering system in the garden which was a very nice surprise.
The inside of the house was immaculate when we returned home. The windows were sparkling and everything looked clean and shinning.
Debbie and Renato had asked if they could stay on with us the night we arrived home to cook us a meal and to do a catch-up in general. We thought this was a lovely welcome home and we felt we became good friends over the months of emailing and talking and we fell into a very relaxed and comfortable arrangement with them both. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we believe they go the extra mile for their Home Owners.
We feel they have become friends of ours over this time and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wanting capable, caring house sitters.
Please don't hesitate to call either Richard or myself to discuss this reference.

Debbie and Renato are outstanding house sitters. They are a delight to know and wonderful to have them in your home. We were fortunate to have them housesit for us for 6 weeks during September/October. They will look after your house, gardens and animals as you would - they have excellent attention to detail and nothing is too much bother.

We have an elderly cat, 3 chickens, tropical gardens, vegetable gardens and a swimming pool. Our cat really warmed to Debbie and Renato (no mean feat), the chickens kept laying, the pool was sparkling and the gardens were flourishing on our returned.

The house was spotless and everything had a well looked after feel to it. The vegetable garden was thriving and there was not a weed to be seen. Debbie and Renato had no problem giving our cat her arthritis medication and Renato even fixed the lid of the chicken's laying box.

We had excellent communication with them before, during and after the house sit and enjoyed catching up with them after our return. We hope they will house sit for us again sometime in the future. We would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone looking for fabulous house sitters.

To Whom It May Concern
I highly recommend the house sitting services of Debbie and Renato who cared for our Brisbane house, dog and garden from 16-27 October 2014. Our energetic, 6 year old cattle dog was our biggest concern in attracting house sitters as she is difficult to manage on walks in encounters with other dogs and requires daily exercise. Debbie and Renaldo were well suited for the task enjoying long walks themselves and endearing themselves to our dog. We returned to find the dog contented, in great shape and the house, indoor pot plants and grounds in excellent condition. Thoughtfully our bed was made up which was much appreciated after a long haul flight and an evening return home.
Debbie and Renato also sent a reassuring text message that all was well in my absence and all previous communication was clear, concise and attended to immediately.

I do hope there are future opportunities for them to return and I would be delighted to answer any enquiries regarding their suitability for such a position.

To Whom It May Concern

We highly recommend to you Debbie and Renato in their capacity as trusted and responsible house and pet sitters. They have taken good care of our house, garden and lively cattle dog for two periods in October 2014 and May 2015.
Debbie and Renato were available at relatively short notice over a period of high demand for sitters and we were fortunate to have secured their services. They contacted us by SMS while we were travelling to reassure us that all was in order during the recent flash flooding event in SE Queensland. The house and grounds were in excellent condition on our return and our dog looking fit and happy from regular walks.
They are a forthright, honest and reliable couple and we certainly hope to see more of them. We are delighted to provide you with this reference and invite you to call us if you care to do so.

I have much pleasure in writing a reference for Debbie and Renato Bomitali.
These lovely people have just completed our second lot of house sitting here in Hervey Bay Queensland. They have been looking after our large house, our pool and grounds and managing our mail as well for the past 6 months while we have been in New Zealand.
We felt very comfortable to have Debbie and Renato return for a second time to do our house sit as we know and trust them implicitly now.
We have no hesitation in recommending this couple for house sitting in the future.
Over the time we were overseas they kept us abreast of any concerns, scanning and forwarding our mail as necessary. They also handled our pool keeping it in great condition.
The grounds and the garden looked beautiful all the plants thriving and lush. Renato can be relied upon to sort out all sorts of things like adding to our watering system in the garden which was a very nice surprise.
We felt we expanded our friendship over the months of emailing and talking and we fell into a very relaxed and comfortable arrangement with them both. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we believe they go the extra mile for their Home Owners.
We feel they have become friends of ours over this time and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wanting capable, caring house sitters.

To Whom It May Concern:

It is our pleasure to provide a reference for Debbie and Renato Bomitali.

Debbie and Renato took care of our home and most importantly our dog, for nearly 4 months from September - December 2015. This was the second time they have done a sit for us and they will always be the first people we call when we go away long term.

The care and attention they put into taking care of our home and especially our staffy Bosun is exceptional. Never once did we worry about anything, knowing they would take care of things as per our instructions. They also went above and beyond, doing personal favours such as posting items for my business.

During our time away, Debbie and Renato kept in contact with us via text and email, sending updates and photos of our baby. On our return, our house was left immaculate, better than we left it! Bosun was happy, healthy and obviously spoiled rotten.

Debbie and Renato have become personal friends. We have no hesitation in recommending them for anyone who is after a couple who are responsible, courteous, experienced with pets and trustworthy.

Regards,

Amy & Jack

I would like to endorse Debbie & Renato as extremely reliable and trustworthy. They looked after my place with care and my dogs had nothing but tender loving care and affection. I would recommend anyone to engage Deb & Renato to look after your property with utmost care and you can be satisfied they will treat it with respect. Cheers, Danny.

No rating Debbie and Renato were great house sitters. They persisted with our frightened little pooch, even taking him to the vet for a check-up. We came home to a spotless house. Would definitely recommend them to anyone. Great sitters.
ILSE AND GUIDO (Toowong QLD, Nov 2017 - 4 weeks)
Debbie and Renato were absolutely amazing at looking after our little King Charles cavalier puppy. It was clear from the moment they arrived that they are animal lovers and our little puppy fell in love with them straight away! Debbie and Renato stayed in touch and made sure we felt at ease throughout the entire house sit. To top it all off, we came home to the cleanest house that we have ever seen. We would definitely have this wonderful couple back anytime and gladly recommend them to anybody ... MORE

Thanks for your lovely words Luke, it was an absolute pleasure Cheers Deb and Renato
Thanks for doing an amazing job looking after our precious pooch and home. Everything perfect, have had a lot of housesitters over the years but Deb and Renato the best. Nothing too much trouble including lots of pictures, movies and feedback about how our boy was travelling. It is such a worry leaving your beloved pet but felt very comfortable with Deb and Renato. Hope they are available next time! Many, many thanks.
 
MIKE AND MEG (SHAILER PARK QLD, Jun 2019 - 4 weeks)
We had the good fortune to have Deb and Renato caring for our home and garden for three weeks in March 2019. We felt extremely confident in their ability to manage our home and this gave us the piece of mind to enjoy our holiday. Whilst we were away there was a considerable amount of rain and Renato took it upon himself to manage our watering system and to pump out the pool as necessary. The communication was fabulous via text updates and to top it off our home was spotless and the ... MORE
 
BILL & CHERYL (REDLAND BAY QLD, Mar 2019 - 3 weeks)
I was delighted to come back home to a house that was lovely and clean and a garden that had been well looked after. The fish and worm farm were also in tip top form. I'm so grateful to Deb and Renato. They also went out of their way to be supportive and caring when I had to stay away longer and offered to come and look after things till I came back. I can certainly recommend Deb and a Renato. They are exceptional house sitters and I would love to have them come back next time I go away.

No rating Debbie & Renato looked after our house and 5 month old puppy for nearly 4 weeks. They are a fantastic couple who looked after our home and cared for our puppy like they were their own. I was able to enjoy my holiday overseas without thinking about 'what ifs' because I knew Debbie & Renato would take care of it no matter what. Our house was cleaner than I left it, our pool & garden were pristine and our puppy was fit & healthy (and I think a bit sad to see them go!). I think it is always a ... MORE
