More Information

**Peace of mind guaranteed**

EDIT: We are into our 5th year of house sitting full-time. As testimony to our house sitting prowess, our calendar is usually filled with return house sits each year in advance. We take great pride, and have the utmost respect for your prperty and/or pets.

** We are a mature, quiet + clean living, friendly couple taking a few years away from work to "transition into retirement" and experience living in other areas of Australia. This may even help us decide where we would like to live when we retire.
** Now that we are "empty nesters" (no children or pets at home) we are free to get out, move around and see different places, meet different people and have new experiences.
** We are honest, trustworthy and ultra-reliable.
** We are respectful of your home and belongings.
** NON-SMOKERS
** We have always owned and maintained our own home and property - including the upkeep and maintenance of the buildings, gardens, lawns and swimming pool etc.
** As homeowners we are well used to caring for and maintaining a property, and dealing with any issues that arise.
** We are very house proud and would tend to your home and gardens as if they were our own.
** We will be completely respectful of your home and any 'rules' you have for taking care of it and your pets.
** We like to be at home, cooking, reading, relaxing or pottering in the yard so your home and pets will not be left alone for any length of time.
** We won't treat sitting your home as a holiday, we'll take our obligation to you very seriously.
** We are responsible, level headed, flexible and love animals.
** Above all, we are competent, reliable and happy people with a sense of humour and common sense to match.

***We have clean Police Checks, character references and references from previous house sitting assignments***
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
PETS
** We are animal lovers and in our 29 years of marriage have had a gorgeous tortoise shell cat named Basil (she lived to 21 years) and a magnificent Pomeranian named Freddy
(a rescue dog who we absolutely adored, but sadly passed away aged 17.5 years).
** We have always loved and spoilt our pets and think of them as family. We will lovingly care for and pamper your pets too - we will feed, wash, groom, walk, pat and play with them. They will be happy, healthy and content upon your return.
** We miss having pets in our life so it would be an absolute joy to love and look after yours while you are away. House sitting offers the wonderful opportunity to be "foster parents", helping to fill the void left in our lives since our darling pets have departed.
** We can administer medications to your pet/s if required.
** We are not averse to pet hair, long walks, fussy pets or pets with special requirements
** We have our own transport and are happy to let your pets in our car too.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
WHAT WE BRING TO THE ASSIGNMENT

** Peace of mind - you can relax and enjoy your time away knowing your home and pet/s are being lovingly looked after.
** Your home will be kept clean and tidy - inside and out.
** We will keep your property and belongings safe and secure.
** Your gardens and lawns will be maintained beautifully.
** Plants will be watered as required.
** Lynette is blessed with green fingers and loves to propagate and grow plants, she has what is arguably a prize winning organic vegetable patch.
** We have always maintained our own swimming pool, ensuring equipment is clean/safe/serviced and water balanced.
** We are happy to regularly keep in touch via email so you know all is well back home (we know what it's like being away from your pets).
** Collect and/or redirect mail.
** Take phone messages.
** Do odd jobs if required.
** Above all, we are competent, honest, reliable and happy people who have a sense of humour and common sense to match.

I have known Lynette and Phillip for over 10 years and I can't think of anyone better to house sit and mind your pets. We can go away with peace of mind knowing all will be well upon our return. They are mega animal lovers, which is just as well because we have a menagerie of animals - 4 dogs of various sizes and ages (2 requiring twice daily medication), 2x cats (Ragdoll and Maincoon) and numerous birds in an aviary. We also have a pool that gets maintained to perfection whenever we are away. They are incredibly respectful, thoughtful, honest and generous. They are extremely dependable and trustworthy, always willing to help out and go the extra mile. Our place usually looks better than when we left it and the pets are always happy and content (almost sad to see them go!). I would have them house or pet sit for me in a heartbeat!

We are delighted to recommend Phillip and Lynette as house sitters. Phillip and Lynette are the most wonderful couple you could hope to meet - they are friendly, honest, reliable, organised and trustworthy. They clearly love animals and animals love them! The manner in which they approached our house sit was at all times respectful, mature and professional.

We left for our trip feeling confident that they would take good care of our animals and property and we were not disappointed. From the start they were very professional and quickly knew the routines of our pets. We were provided with weekly updates on how things were going while we were away, and any issues which arose were promptly and competently dealt with.

We returned home to find our property exceptionally maintained both inside and out - the house was sparkling clean, the lawns were mown, our garden beds were well maintained, our pool was sparkling clean, and most importantly our pets were happy and healthy.

They took extra special care of our house and our dogs - most importantly to us, our dogs were looked after, pampered and loved (spoilt rotten actually). They were taken to the local beach or nature reserve for exercise and frolicking every day.

We honestly believe you will not find a more diligent and caring couple than Phillip and Lynette and we have no hesitation in recommending them to other home owners. You can be assured of complete peace of mind when Phillip and Lynette are looking after your property while you are away.

We hope they will always be able to come back to us because we were absolutely thrilled with the job they did for us.

Bevan and Liana

This was the first time we used a house sitter so we were nervous about having strangers come into our home but we need not have worried. We felt comfortable and relaxed with Phillip and Lynette from the moment we met them. They are friendly, mature, honest and trustworthy and made a great effort to understand the house and the routines of our dogs before we left. They stayed in regular contact to ensure we were kept up-to-date on how things were going at home in our absence. We came back to a house that was absolutely spotless from top to bottom and the lawns and gardens were immaculate. We would happily ask them to house sit for us again, both to look after our property and our pets and have no hesitation in recommending them to others who are looking for fantastic housesitters. We hope they don't get too busy to come back to us next year!

Phillip and Lynette are a lovely, friendly couple who looked after our home and dogs while we were in Europe for six weeks.

Having not used house sitters before we were a little anxious to leave the care of our house and 2 dogs to people we did not know. However, given their friendly, honest and open demeanour Phillip and Lynette made the experience easy. The whole process from beginning to end was seamless. When we returned home the house was tidy and our two dogs happy & content. They had made us a meal which was greatly appreciated after a long flight home. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Phillip and Lynette for any house sitting assignment. Oh, and we really enjoyed their company as well, for the short time we spent together with them. They are quiet people but have a really great sense of humour.

Our dogs clearly loved them and you could not find a lovelier couple to care for your home and pets while you are away - you'll be asking them to come back - we promise!
