We are a non smoking, dedicated professional House Sitting couple. 61,67 with 9 yrs full time sitting behind us.

Very proud of our 5 star ratings across several sites, we are frequently repeat requested. We are vetted and verified.  We  have been placed in positions of trust and cleaned peoples homes for them through an agency.  Just as through professional agencies We have always been asked to return as the customers preference.

I have retired now but most of my working life was in the security field. Worked for the Metropolitan Police and as a store detective/security officer. My partner retired after 40 yrs working at the same place, Norwich Uni.

My partner has has extensive experience with animals including running a cattery, livery yard, kept chickens,duck,pigeons,several dogs. He is very handy in the garden and with DIY.

We have sat in Australia many times, mainly Cairns and Newcastle, NSW, where we have now made many wonderful friends.  We plan to return as much as we can.  We love and care for all our foster pets as though they were our own.

Go on holiday knowing that your home and pets are being loved and cared for as you would wish.  Come back to a clean and tidy home, happy pets and any issues dealt with on your behalf. We promise to do a good job.

PS We pay all our own expenses in travelling etc, but we ask for loan of a vehicle please.

We have no motoring convictions, points and do not drink and drive.

SIT DATE: May weeks Anita and Laurie were wonderful house sitters and delightful and completely trustworthy couple. We returned from our vacation to find our cat well pampered and the house was immaculate with fresh sheets on the beds and fresh flowers. The garden was regularly watered and Laurie mowed our lawns too and attended to some well overdue garden cleanup in our absence. Anita and Laurie also left food in the fridge such as an evening meal, bread and milk on our return which was so thoughtful. Anita kept us updated throughout our vacation with photos of our cat and a report on the house- Great communication. Highly recommend this couple who clearly love animals and take pride in looking after other peoples houses. Would definitely invite them back. Thanks Anita and Laurie

Anita and Laurie Recently house that for me at Kewarra Beach Far North Queensland. Their main task was to look after Honey, my beautiful big American Staffy. Made friends with honey immediately, and being a kind gentle people there they are, she was In very good hands. They took her down to the beach every day. AND Send me photos daily! Anita and Laurie kept the house and Garden spick and span. 

I recommend them to you and Have booked them again for November.
They are the best housesitters I have had

Anita sat for us previously in our last flat, so when she applied for this sit, we accepted instantly!! Our dog, Charlie, was so excited to see her and we knew that he was in good hands. Anita is very organised, likeable, reliable and we were happy to have her visit again after her adventures in Australia! We came back to a lovely clean, tidy house and happy dog. Thank you Anita. Highly recommended.  JULY 2019

Hi Laurie- before you migrate to warmer climes for the winter- we wanted to thank you so very much for taking such good care of Lily & Mabel, the chicks and the fish tank for us while we were away. Thank you also for the peace of mind you gave us with the regular photos!- much appreciated. The house was immaculate too- your attention to detail was above & beyond anything we could have imagined. John has contacted to see how to leave feedback .  Give our best wishes to Anita- enjoy your travels and hopefully we will see you later next year again . Thank you again John & Sally

Anita and Laurie took good care of my fur baby including lots of walks and swims. The house and garden were immaculate when I returned. The best reference is that Arvi didn't want them to leave. I have no hesitation in recommending Anita and Laurie. I only hope they don't get too busy and are available again next year.

Review by Wendy

Laurie and Anita could not have been better house sitters ing home to an immaculate house was wonderful and my dog was so happy and healthy. She and Laurie seemed to have bonded so well.
I made a mistake with the date I would be returning and Anita and Laurie worked it so they could split their next assignment to help me out. Thank goodness for them.
They are both very caring people.
I have no hesitation in recommending them and am happy to do so if anyone wants to phone me for a verbal referral.
Wendy and Sherry

Review by Diane, Sydney Jan 2019

Anita and Laurie were fantastic home and pet minders. They obviously have a love of animals, and my pets felt comfortable with them right away. Even my newly acquired (previously stray) cat was happy and content. They had also to contend with feeding my multiple wild birds, and Laurie didn't mind at all the cockatoos jumping on his shoulder!
Anitia and Laurie left the house tidier than they
