More Information

We live in Slovenia, Europe where we own a house on a hill overlooking our orchard and grapevines. We love to be outside in nature, be it in the mountains or near the sea. In 2016 we moved from Australia and New Zealand to Slovenia, where we lived and worked in our younger years, to retire. Now, very often we go back to Australia and NZ to be close to our kids.We have owned homes all our lives and we understand the care and attention that it takes to maintain a home. In retirement, we love traveling around the world and being active and fit. Our daughters still live in Australia and NZ and Slovenia so we would be very interested in house-sitting in there parts of the world.We enjoy gardening and have maintained many gardens over the years. If you have a garden We would love to take care of it. We have been loving dog-owners our whole lives and enjoy caring for and being around all kinds of animals.

Why we want to house sit

We would love to house sit to see many different places and cultures, languages, people. We believe that house-sitting provides a unique opportunity to get to know a new place and culture from the perspective of a local.

What we bring to the assignment / relevant experience

We have owned homes in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. While we have no formal experience house-sitting, ( we set for our daughter Branka), we know how to care for and maintain a home. We would work with home-owners to create a plan for how they want their home maintained and their pets cared for in their absence.

Branka and Toma were my first house and petsitting experience and I couldn't have chosen a better sitter.
As they live quite close, they came to visit me two weeks before the first sitting. They are both extremely friendly and considerate. It was very nice to get some photos of my dog while I was away and I came home to a very happy dog and extremely clean house. It was so good to know that somebody is taking such good care of my house and the dog while I was away. I felt as if a grandma from a fairytale was coming. I would highly recommend Branka and Tomo as sitters - I would definitely be very happy if they come again.

Branka and Tom have on numerous occasions taken care of both my home and my dogs. Over the period of a few years they house-sat for myself and my husband on 3-4 occasions for time periods spanning anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. They are exceedingly tidy (in fact, our house was always tidier upon our return than we had left it) and responsible. They absolutely adored our two dogs, a boisterous 2-yr old kelpie and an elderly terrier, both of whom require very different care, attention and exercise (the kelpie needs regular exercise in order to address his high energy and our older dog needs regular short walks, regular grooming and occasional medication). We felt completely comfortable with Branka and Tom who took care of our home and pets as if they were their own. Would recommend any time!

Branka and Tom were amazing house sitters. They cared for and loved Ellie, the chooks were welled care for. Our house was sparkling clean and tidy ( I don't know if it has every been so clean!) The garden had been loved and was in beautiful condition. Branka and Tomislav treated our home with respect and care. Our animals were loved and cared for. I can't recommend them highly enough. Just a lovely caring couple.

Branka was terrific! She cared for our home and dog, Tia, with such care - better than I could have ever hoped for. I would love to have her back (with Tom) if she were available when we next have to go away. Highly recommended!

Branka and her husband did a very good job looking after our house and garden. We communicated briefly a few times via email and whats app and i felt completely assured that she had everything under control. We came home to a very clean and tidy house, happy plants as well as some food so that we didn't need to shop immediately. Unable to comment about pet care as we don't have one. Highly recommended.

THEIR ENDORSEMENT OF YOU:
Branka and Tom excel when it comes to housesitting. Our house was very well tended and our animals were very happy. Branka checked in with us when she had a question about the animals and the house seemed to sparkle even more than how we left it for them. We'd definitely use Branka and Tom again and highly recommend them to others. Thank you Branka and Tom.

Having not previously ventured into the world of House & Pet sitting, we fortunately came across Branka and Tom. We couldn't have asked for anyone better to look after our Labradoodle and house.

Branka and Tom keep in continual contact before and throughout the process, and what a pleasure it was to return to a clean and tidy house, grass cut, flowers watered and most importantly happy dog. We would have no hesitation in recommending Branka and Tom and will be welcoming them back to our house both for House and Pet sitting and on a social basis.
