More information about this house sitterWe are Danielle & Steve. We love animals, helping people, & exploring Melbourne. We’d love to keep your pets happy & home beautiful so you can enjoy your travels worry free, knowing your fur babies are safe & secure in their own home - free of kennels, catteries & cages.
We adore all four & two legged animals, especially dogs and cats. For most of our lives we have both grown up around dogs, cats, birds, rabbits & fish (including those that walk). We are happy, healthy & an energetic duo who love to take pets for regular walks, runs or some fun park & playtime when they want.
Both working full-time in Melbourne, Danielle’s role with a local winery allows plenty of flexibility with her working hours and is mostly done from home. Spending a few hours of the day on the road seeing clients in the CBD and close surrounding suburbs, Danielle can be there during the daytime to feed and love your pets and give them all the care and attention they'll need while they are missing you.
Steve has recently moved back from Gippsland & works in the environment & public sector, so loves any chance to connect with animals, nature & local communities. Especially the opportunity to wake up or wind down exercising & playing with pets.
Danielle has housesat many properties & pets over the years when returning from overseas, or deciding to save for the next adventure. Having recently introduced Steve to housesitting, we both find it is a great social & cultural experience helping people, meeting & caring for so many pets & falling in love with their quirky personalities. All while enjoying the amazing mix Melbourne has to offer.
Without a doubt, the hardest part of housesitting is leaving the special bonds and relationships that have been built with these beautiful creatures. However, the joy & appreciation of owners returning to loving reunions & sparkling houses helps ease the pain!
We understand that every household & pet is unique & we’re always happy to do everything the way you & your fur babies like. Rest assured that your home and belongings are in safe, secure hands.
