More Information

We are a semi-retired , happy, friendly, non-smoking couple who decided in 2014 to pack up and travel around Australia with our caravan. We commenced housesitting late 2015.
With a genuine love of animals, discovering new places and meeting new people, housesitting became a great alternative lifestyle to add to our travelling.

We like to keep active and have enjoyed housesitting/farm sitting and caring for everyones lovely pets during our travels.

We are happy to care for your lawns and gardens, collect and/or redirect mail, keep your home clean & tidy and make sure your pets are happy, content and well cared for so you can enjoy your time away with complete peace of mind. We are more than happy to keep in touch with you during your absence and let you know how your pets are going. We know you will be missing them but we assure you they will be enjoying themselves too.

Our services are free in exchange for accommodation in your home and use of utilities. (Power, water etc - wifi graciously accepted if available )
We are very energy conscious. We just ask that you can also accommodate our caravan (20ft) and vehicle on your property during our stay. ( In some cases we can organise storage for our van ) Mobile reception is also required.

Additional References available on request, We also have Police checks and Working With Childrens Check. We look forward to hearing from you.

ENDORSEMENTS (From Homeowners - through other siites as we are new to this site)
If you would like to verify any endorsements please see our Aussiehousesitters profile or we can provide phone contacts.

Its my pleasure to provide a glowing endorsement of Joy & Terry for a recent 10day pet & house sit at our property. They are friendly, approachable people who were happily willing to oblige all our requests while looking after our (some would say) spoilt animals including our precious Golden retreiver, cat, sheep (lambing ewes) & 2 peacocks. In fact, a lamb arrived during their stay which we've appropriately named Terry! & with temperatures exceeding 40degrees during their stay, they ensured our peacocks were well sheltered by putting up extra shade cloth in their pen & providing plenty of freshwater & treats, taking our dog for swims in the dam & cooling him with wet towels & keeping our pot plants well hydrated. They left the house immaculately clean, & it was lovely to jump into a freshly made bed on our return - the fresh rose from the garden on the pillow was a beautiful touch & They provided us with regular updates & photos of our 'babies' while we were away. I have no hesitation recommending Joy & Terry for future house sits, & hope we are lucky enough to have them back again next time we are away.

On our 4 week vacation overseas, Joy and Terry Looked after our house, yard, 2 cats, 2 dogs and a bird, Right from the moment I met them both I felt confident our place and pets was in good hands. They had great communication before, during and after our stay. They met up with us before we went away, they sent photos of the pets (who were clearly enjoying themselves) and property whilst overseas and even after the housesit was over they made sure we settled back in well. Their green thumb turned our yard into better condition than before we left! Amazing house sitters and would definitely use them again! Highly recommended.

Joy and Terry were ideal. They handed back our house and acreage and pets in outstanding condition. Our place is a little complicated, with a large garden, rural water, etc ; but Joy and Terry managed capably. They also operated our BnB succesfully, guest reviews attest to care and excellence. We welcome inquiries to elaborate, and praise.

We were lucky enough to spend some time holidaying in Europe in July and August 2016 and even luckier to find Joy and Terry to come and stay with our dogs Boxer and Bernie whilst we were away. We came home to two very happy dogs and would be more than happy to welcome Joy and Terry again in the future when we are going away.

Joy and Terry recently house sat at my place for a period of two weeks. I could not have been happier. My dogs adored them and they left the house sparkling. They are a delightful couple and are very responsive to any requests (even sending photos of the dogs and fitting handles on to two doors for me). I have already booked them again for the next time that I'm away. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for top quality house sitters.
WENDY (Bendigo VIC, Jun 2016)

Joy and Terry sat for us for four weeks, we could not have been happier with them. We can home to a spotless house and two very happy fur babies. We appreciate the updates and photos of the dogs while we were away. We have asked them to sit for us again! We would definitely recommend Joy and Terry for your house sitting needs, they are respectful, reliable and very friendly. We would be more than happy to speak to anyone considering Joy and Terry to house sit. Lyndall and Andrew

They won over our fussy heeler cross so must be great! The house was sparkling, the lawns were immaculate, and the cat and Guinea pigs were alive!! Lovely, lively couple who were resourceful and relaxed. This was my first house sitter experience and I felt confident that my home and furbabies were in good hands.
