More information about this house sitter

Diverse House-Sit Experience. Many Repeats, Refs, Photos & Links to our sits. "THANKS AGAIN FOR CARE & AFFECTION YOU BESTOW ON OUR PROPERTY & PETS!" sums up gratitude of local & overseas owners.

We cater year round for all homes - Beach to Bush. Properties 4 Sale , Hinterland Retreats, Cabins, Modest Homes, Remote Stations, Elaborate Dwellings, plus many acreage property assignments to date.

- We've just completed a cracker of a rural cattle station assignment. Set in the rolling hills of South Burnett, Qld with a striking timbered mountain backdrop. Working and non-working dogs vying for activity. Chooks galore and free-ranging guinea fowl. Along with lesser seen horses and cattle slowly working their way out across the surrounding landscape. A treasure of a setting for those who appreciate wide open starry skies.
Add in a classic original small scale homestead brought back from the dust to shine and house the third generation now relishing this slice of land. For us, it offered the perfect verandah for dawn cuppas and sunset cool drinks - a top possie for reviewing another great day's activity, while the three generation station family took a well deserved break.

- Prior to this was a multiple repeat Noosa Hinterland assignment. A state of the art ridgeline home perched high above the Mary Valley. Breath-taking views, bush tranquillity, combined with cutting-edge design.
Our property presentation skills were well tested on our assignment here in 2013 and again in 2019, keeping things ship shape for the agent's private inspections. Needless to say, this 'House 4-Sale' sold, twice over under our prep presentation efforts.
