More Information

ARE YOU READY for that well earned holiday; or perhaps you have an overseas business trip planned; or you simply just want to get away for a while;

No matter your reason, if you are needing someone to sit your home while you are away, SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST, we might be able to help.

KATH & DAVID's HOUSE SITTERS are TRUSTED and RELIABLE house sitters. So, while you are away, we can provide you with that peace of mind that your home is being well looked after, including your garden and any pets.

We live on the picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia.
We have three adult children: our youngest, a daughter, lives and studies in Melbourne; next, our second son, lives in Kirwan (Townsville) with his wife and our FOUR granddaughters; then there's our oldest son, he's house sitting in the Adelaide Hills.
We are 'non-smokers';
Kath is a non-drinker, while David enjoys the rare drop;
Kath worked as a nurse and then as a carer and now is semi-retired;
David owned and operated a retail computer repair business up to a few years ago; prior to that a NAUI scuba-dive/snorkeling and fishing equipment store.

1) TOWNSVILLE & Surrounds.
We love to house sit in the Townsville area particularly available from late April to the end of September, for periods from as short as two weeks to a couple of months (especially if coinciding with Townsville's Private School's holidays), as we like to visit our Townsville family at this time.
2) MELBOURNE & Suburbs
If we are not house sitting in Townsville, we are open to house sit offers in Melbourne and, particularly, western suburbs. Normally of shorter durations, e.g. long-weekends and school holidays.

So, if you' re in Townsville and are planning that long deserved 'trip-of -a-lifetime'; you want to recuperate away from home or your in Melbourne and just simply want to recharge your batteries with a long weekend 'Shorts Get-away' and you require an experienced, reliable and trustworthy couple to look after your home in your absence, then send us your sit details and we'll respond promptly if we can help.

We have been house sitting for a couple of years now and have met some wonderful people and looked after some great homes in both Townsville and Melbourne; our first was a business owner and his wife in West End (Townsville), then for a young doctor and her elderly cat in Mentone (Melbourne); and then we had two consecutive sits totalling over four months in Townsville (in Wulguru for a retired engineer and in Dearagun for a member of Queensland's Police Force on long service leave).

So, if you want PEACE OF MIND while you are away from your home knowing your home (and your 'extended' family) is being well looked after, message us, and we'll promptly respond to your requests.

Happy Holidaying.
Kath and David's House Sitting.
(P.S. We don't charge much - LOL)
