More information about this house sitter
Steve and I are a reliable, fifty-something, animal-loving couple who have been house-sitting full-time since 2015. Caring for people's homes, gardens & pets for three years in our home state of Western Australia, then another four in Tasmania, before returning to WA in 2023.
We're both retired which means almost all of our time can be spent around your pets and home.
As a couple, we’ve been married over thirty years (all spent in WA and Tasmania) and are the parents of two adult, independent children.
If you would like to know more about us just send a message and we will happily give you our website and Facebook details or answer your questions.
Hi there Lizzie and Steve,
Thank you both so much for taking care of our home and beloved Lucy pooch!
It was so lovely to come home to a relaxed and happy pooch and thank you also for going the extra mile with all the little extras which were not necessary but we so appreciate!
You are wonderful!
All the best with your future adventures and I feel sure we will meet again!

Lizzie and Steve are animal whisperers.
It took a couple of weeks of smoozing for them to earn the confidence of my very timid rescue kitty but their patience, kindness and persistence prevailed. I returned home to a well cared for pet and well maintained home and garden.
Lizzie and Steve, thank you so so much for accepting the challenge, for staying in my teeny tiny home, caring for Mungee and my things, keeping the garden alive in quite demanding temperatures. Anyone who wants the real deal, will be able to leave their precious pet, belongings and home in your hands, go away and return to pampered pets and clean sheets.

Hi Lizzie and Steve,
Firstly, we would like you to know how much we appreciated you accommodating us on those few days which overlapped on your house sitting calendar.
Thank you so very much for taking such good care of our home and most importantly Mojo, Ollie, Amazon and our chooks. Thanks also for the photos, it meant the world to us, to see how much our pets bonded with you both (even “I don't like anyone” Amazon).
It was great to be able to go away without having to worry about a thing. We have no hesitation in highly recommending you both to anyone looking for honest, reliable and friendly house/pet sitters.
What a wonderful couple you are, traveling Australia in your own unique way.

Simply put - Liz and Steve are amazing.
There are few select people I would trust to look after my beloved puppies, but can now definitely add them to the list.
Liz and Steve were so great from when I asked them to house sit until the day they left for their new place. It was such a huge relief knowing my two girls and our home were so well looked after. The girls no doubt kept them on their toes most of the time, but they cared for them like they were their own.
Our next holiday will be booked for when Liz and Steve are free! Couldn’t recommend them enough.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Liz & Steve.
It was so hard to leave our fur babe whilst we were away but Liz and Steve were so understanding! They sent constant updates /photos whilst we were away and were always happy to respond to ALL my messages checking in 😄.
You could see right away how much they loved Oliver as if he were their own which was lovely to see. Thank you both so much for helping Jeff and I at such short notice and for being so kind and amazing to deal with since day one.
Even though Oliver was so happy to see us when we returned you could tell he had that much fun that he also didn’t want you to leave.
Merry Christmas and thank you both once again we are definitely grateful for everything.

Can highly recommend Lizzie and Steve who have just looked after my two dogs and house for last two weeks. So nice to come home from holiday to happy dogs and a lovely clean and tidy house. The best recommendation I can give is I am planning to arrange my next holiday around their availability.
(Lin, Yanchep, Western Australia)
Just wanted to thank you both heaps for looking after our girls while we were away. They both were looking great when we got home.
Only problem was - I suspect they didn't miss us as much as we missed them!
(Suzanne, South Yunderup, Western Australia)
Thanks so much to you and Steve...we came home to an immaculate home, happy little old man Buddy, lovely green garden, even mowed and weeded, and plants pruned!!!
Can't thank you both enough for everything....I think Buddy is missing you, as he's been looking around and very quiet!
Thank you, thank you!!! Take care, will keep in touch.

Steve and Lizzie are such a lovely couple.
Our house and pets were in caring, safe hands with them. They made extra efforts to ensure my dogs were happy and nurtured and they built amazing relationships with them during their short stay.
I would highly recommend them. Thank you Steve and Lizzie - I hope to see you again!
(Marion, Keysbrook, Western Australia)
Sorry we missed you this morning!! CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH for your amazing house and pet sitting services this month. Our fur babies are all sulky this morning now that you are gone!
So grateful xxxxx
(Sarah & Alex, South Lake, Western Australia)
Thank you so much for the fantastic care of Carla whilst we were away. She was a happy relaxed dog when we came back and her stress only started when she realised Steve was not there to take her for 2 walks a day.
The house was spotless which was lovely to come home to after a 4.5 hour drive so it meant I could put my feet up, after unpacking of course.
Would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and we would have you housesit again if your calendar permits.
Thank you once again.
(Jean and Craig, Landsdale, Western Australia)
Thank you both for housesitting twice for us now! Our 2 greyhounds, cat, rabbit, guinea pig, 3 budgies, quail and snails all miss you.
You're both such caring, loving people and it's easy to see you love animals, and they love you. I actually think the cat was disappointed when you left and we came home.
Having you both stay here took the stress away and we could enjoy our holidays without worry.
Thank you again, see you next time!
(Laura and Steve, Baldivis, Western Australia)
What can I say, Steve did such a great job house sitting, not only looking after my home and large garden & lawn but also caring for my animals.
Diamond my retired greyhound was contented & happy when I arrived home after being away for 3 weeks. He welcomed me home & then went looking for Steve, I must admit I was a bit jealous :) Thank you for walking him each day too, he looks great.
I also have two cats & an aviary of budgies. I believe after a short time the cats forgot they were frightened of men & became really smoochy, good on you Steve.
I left a list of all my pot plants etc that needed watering & every one of them is looking great plus the water dishes for the wild birds were looked after too so I am really rapt with the way my home & family were cared for in my absence.
If anyone was to ask me if I could recommend a lovely couple to look after their home and animals I wouldn't hesitate to tell them about Steve & Lizzie.
Thank you so much.
