Jan looked after our home and our two jack russels for three weeks in October and we couldn't be happier. She was absolutely wonderful. The dogs loved her and we could tell that they were very well cared for. To top it off, when we came home, the house was immaculate. I would have no hesitation in recomending Jan to look after your home and I'd certainly invite her to come and stay here again. She is the first step towards a worry free holiday. Thankyou Jan!!
LEANNE (Chermside West QLD, Oct 2018 - 3 weeks)
Jan did a fabulous job looking after our beautiful cat Basil and our house. She took great care of Baz and our house was spotless when we came home. She kept us up to date with regular communication and pictures of Baz which was great. We would recommend Jan as a house sitter. Thanks Jan.
SHELBY (Mitchelton QLD, Sep 2020 - 1 week)
Jan was a very easy-going and communicative sitter. She looked after our two cats and three chickens very well and left the house in a beautiful state. The cats were very chilled out when we got home, not at all stressed from us being gone. We really appreciated the daily updates and photos, and they allowed us to relax and enjoy our time knowing everything was being looked after. I'd recommend Jan and will hopefully be able to use her services again.
BERNIE (Gordon Park QLD, Jul 2020 - 4 days)
Jan was fantastic. She looked after house and pet with professional and efficient manner. The attention and care she displayed was a step above.
KATY (Albion QLD, Feb 2020 - 2 weeks 4 days)
Jan house sat for a month for us and was just wonderful. She communicated regularly with stories on how our dog, Lulu, and our chooks were coming along and the house was better than we left it when we got back. We've nothing but good things to say about Jan and would highly recommend her.
DOUG (Grange QLD, Jun 2019 - 4 weeks)
Jan was absolutely wonderful. She sent me regular updates about my pets and I came back to a sparkling clean house. Would absolutely use Jan again.
JESS (Wavell Heights QLD, Apr 2019 - 3 days)
Jan is a wonderful Housesitter! On my return the house was immaculate. My little pug was sorry to see her leave. I was kept regularly updated with photos and emails on how my puppy was copping. He was very spoilt. Have no worries in recommending Jan and will certainly request her again
CHRISTINE (Wavell Heights QLD, Apr 2019 - 2 weeks 2 days)
Jan was amazing. Our dogs absolutely loved her, the house was spotless upon return & the communication we received whilst away was wonderful. It was very reassuring to know that our pets & home were in such safe hands during our travels. I strongly recommend Jan for any house-sits. Thanks again!!
CORINNE (Geebung QLD, Apr 2019 - 4 days)
Jan has been fantastic while looking after my home and Brock for 4 weeks. I highly recommend Jan and would happily have her back to housesit.
CINDY (Redcliffe QLD, Mar 2019 - 1 week 5 days)
Jan provided a high quality house and pet sitting service for almost 3 weeks. We were kept advised of our cat's well being on a regular basis, and the house was left cleaner than prior to her arrival. We have no hesitation in recommending Jan for house sitting services
GAVIN AND BEVERLY (Lutwyche QLD, Sep 2018 - 3 weeks)
Jan house sat for us for a 4 week period recently and I cannot understate how much of a fantastic guest she was in our home. Not only was the house in a cleaner state than when we left but every effort was made to make sure that everything was taken care of and we didn't need to worry about anything. She looked after our little cat and made sure to send us email updates with their adventures which was such a comfort. I would recommend Jan to anyone and would ask for her help help next time ...

FRASER (Everton Park QLD, Aug 2018)
What a treasure it was finding Jan on this wonderful service platform. Jan is the loveliest of people and it was quite obvious that Maya was smitten also with her easy going nature & caring attitude. I would have Jan back in my home at any stage. So 'Thank you Jan' for your warm & caring nature & the piece of mind I had in enjoying my weekend away with knowing Maya was in great care. I would highly recommend Jan for any sit she may like to apply for. Take care & thank you again. :)
SUE (Wavell Heights QLD, Jul 2018)
No rating Jan is just wonderful , a lovely, warm, calm, caring, reliable, trustworthy angel. I have never used a house sitter before and was a little anxious about the process, but Jan knew exactly what she was doing which put me at ease. Her love for animals was instantly evident as soon as she met my dog and cat. I went away for a week and left my cat and very energetic teenage cattle dog and they were very healthy and happy when I returned home. I was able to enjoy my time away without stressing about ...

LIZ (Mitchelton QLD, Apr 2018 - 1 week 2 days)
We had Jan look after our house and two fur babies from the 7-13 Jan 2018. I can not express how wonderful she was. When we arrived home the house was impeccably presented and she had even organised some cupboards for me. The dogs were so happy in her care and very spoiled with walks, swims and lots of cuddles. She is completely honest, trustworthy and reliable. We would highly recommend her for any housesit and petsit. Thank you, Jan.
CHRISTINE (Gordon Park QLD, Jan 2018 - 6 days)
Jan looked after our house and our cat from the from 19 Dec 2017 - 3 January 2018. Jan was amazing! She sent us email updates every day or 2 with photos on how everything was going. When we arrived home our place was immaculate and our cat was a very happy kitty, He definitely missed her when she left. Jan is such a caring and lovely person - we felt 100% comfortable and confident with Jan looking after our place and will definitely be asking her to coma back :)
LISA (Wooloowin QLD, Dec 2017 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating Jan was wonderful sitter. Calm and confident, she bonded well with my old cat. She sent me photos and an email every day. She was very trustworthy and a nice person. Thanks Jan.
CAROL (Auchenflower QLD, Nov 2017)
No rating Jan looked after our pets Topsy and Daisy and our home for two weeks. We came back to find all three in better shape than when we left. Jan is a true professional and we couldn't recommend her any higher. The pets were sorry to see her go and we wish her only the best. We look forward to our next holiday if we can secure Jan.
ROSEMARY AND MICHAEL (Clayfield QLD, Aug 2017)
Jan was booked to look after my home, two cats and my elderly aunt next door. She did a wonderful job!! My cats were very well cared for and given affection as well as food. Jan was there for my aunt but respected her sense of independence. My house was left immaculate. I would not hesitate to recommend Jan for any housesitting position.
CLAIRE (Everton Park QLD, Jun 2017 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating My husband Steve and I highly recommend Jan as dog/house sitter. Jan looked after our beautiful whippet Winnie for four weeks. There was an instant bond between them and I knew straight away that Winnie would be fine. Jan kept us up to date with regular emails and photos. Jan also coordinated with a tiler to have work completed while we were away, which was much appreciated. Winnie was well exercised and lovingly cared for. Our house was immaculate when we returned from overseas and the ... MORE
JENNIFER (Hope Island QLD, May 2017)
No rating I recently was fortunate enough to have Jan look after my fur babies & home just after the June long weekend. The weather was inclement & the pets would have been fretting. When I returned home my pets, & plants were flourishing & house immaculate. That is no exsaggeration. Jan has minded my home a few times & I cannot be happier & have more peace of mind when she is here. I read every reference before her first house sit & Jan was a standout.
KAROL (Banora Point NSW, Apr 2017)
No rating We had Jan look after our house and our dog Ruby for 2 1/2 weeks. Jan was absolutely wonderful with our Ruby pampering her and taking her for one to two walks every day. We came home to a spotless house and a very happy pooch. I will certainly be hoping to have Jan look after our house and Ruby anytime in the future. Thank you Jan.
GLENYS (Ballina NSW, Mar 2017)
No rating Jan is an outstanding House Sitter--she is warm, friendly, conscientious and totally reliable. Our small dog, home and garden were cared for with complete dedication and attention to detail. We feel very fortunate to have had Jan as a sitter and would be more than happy to be contacted to confirm our opinion.
HOWARD & JOAN (Bulimba QLD, Feb 2017)
No rating We just arrived home today after having Jan look after our house, pets and plants for the past five days. We can safely say she probably did a better job of this than we do ourselves!!! I also suspect that our cat and dog are secretly wishing that we would go away more often as long as it was Jan who was going to be comping to look after them. Our dog now has to get used to only having his usual one walk a day (instead of the two he was getting with Jan) and our cat seems to think that she ... MORE
TRACEY (Ashgrove QLD, Feb 2017 - 4 days)
No rating We cannot recommend Jan enough. Although it was a short stay, Jan made us feel like we had been visited by Mary Poppins. She was an angel to our home and two hounds. We received regular photo updates from Jan about our dogs which made us know they were in good hands. One of our dogs was a 10 week old puppy which kept poor Jan awake most nights (sorry Jan) but she never complained. Our home was immaculate when we came home, our washing was taken off the line and our pups tails were wagging and ... MORE
AMANDA (Bardon QLD, Jan 2017 - 2 days)
No rating Jan is a great Housesitter. She did such an amazing job looking after our place and our beloved indoor cat Lennox while we were away for 3 weeks. We came home to a really tidy house and a very happy kitty. Lennox was spoilt while we were away. Jan stayed at home a lot which we didn't expect, but was nice to know that Lennox had lots of company and attention with regular walks which he loved. Jan also emailed us regularly even though we did not expect this of her either, it was great to see ... MORE
NICOLA (Tweed Heads West NSW, Nov 2016)
No rating Jan did a wonderful job for my housesit, looking after my dog Molly and my property. She informed me regularly as to Molly's wellbeing and I felt safe in the knowledge she was being well cared for in my absence. I would highly recommend Jan for her kind and understanding approach to looking after animals and for her lovely manner in all my dealings with her. I would have no reservations in having her housesit for me again.
LINDA (North Lakes QLD, Oct 2016)
No rating Jan is a wonderful housesitter who has taken care of our beloved spoodle on a number of occasions. I would highly recommend Jan to anyone looking for a kind, responsible person to take care of their home and pets. Her care of both pets and property is outstanding. Our house is always sparkling on return and our dog very well loved! We can't wait to have you back Jan!
BETHANY (Ascot QLD, Sep 2016 - 6 days)
No rating Jan is an excellent house sitter, she cared for my three cats and my house perfectly. I have two senior cats so I do worry about leaving them but Jan took the time to get to know the cats before I left and sent me regular updates and photos about them while I was away which took away all the worry and stress. My house was spotless when I returned and I would not hesitate to highly recommend Jan as a sitter to anyone.
SACHA (Mitchelton QLD, Aug 2016)
No rating We recently had Jan Lane housesitting and caring for our 2 Beagle dogs. Her conduct and care were exemplary. The dogs were extremely well cared for and very happy. The house was perfectly clean and tidy. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jan to any housesitting appointment and caring for pets and we would certainly try to secure her services again if the need arises.
JANET KELLY (Bald Hills QLD, Jun 2016 - 4 weeks)
No rating I have recently returned from a one month holiday to the USA. Leaving my home and my much loved puppies was a huge thing for me to do. If you are looking for someone to look after your home and/or animals, I could not recommend Jan more highly. I was very fortunate indeed for Jan to have contacted me to look after the house and "the boys". From the first phone conversation I knew she was the right person. Jan was absolutely amazing I couldn't have asked for a better person. My puppies are ... MORE
JULIE (Banora Point NSW, May 2016 - 1 week 6 days)
No rating Hi there! We would like to highly recommend Jan to come and house sit. We were away for nearly 3 weeks and left Jan in our home with our two dogs. What a great job Jan did , we came home to a cleaner house than I left, plus both dogs were so well looked after , she took both dogs for 2 walks a day. Our garden is well looked after, all alive and well kept as it didn't rain for the time we were away so Jan had her hands full watering plus walking both the dogs. Hoping to have Jan ... MORE
LISA (Toowoomba QLD, Apr 2016 - 2 weeks 2 days)
No rating Jan cared for my two lively dogs, my house and garden for over a month and I returned to very happy dogs and everything in perfect order. I have no hesitation in recommending Jan.
LIBBY (East Toowoomba QLD, Mar 2016 - 4 weeks)
No rating Jan cared for my two dogs for two weeks while I was away and they were very spoilt! Walked daily, played frisbee at least once daily, groomed and massaged. I think Bonnie and Andy were disappointed when I came home, life was very good! Jan also watered my pot plants and the house was immaculate. On top of that Jan checked on my elderly mother. I highly recommend Jan without any hesitation.
