More Information

Our four children have finally flown the nest, we've retired, and look forward to exploring as much of the world as possible.

Originally from South Africa, we relocated to Australia 11 years ago. Pets, especially cats and dogs, have always been much loved members of our family.

We've been continuously house sitting since December 2015. Whether it's a small apartment in the city to distant rural properties we've loved caring for a wide variety of homes and pets. Winning the trust of skittish cats, throwing the ball for exuberant dogs, feeding wild birds or cuddling up in the evenings with precious pets have been wonderful experiences. We've been delighted when home owners have asked us back to do repeat sits and have made some wonderful friends, (furry and non-furry!), along the way.

In the past we've had to rely on others to take care of our beloved pets and home, and understand and appreciate home owners who are concerned about ensuring the best possible care of their property and furry family while they're away.

We're animal lovers. During an extended trip to South Africa in 2015 we worked at raising awareness and fundraising for two animal welfare organisations, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Funda Nenja. Glynis has experience in the taming and re-homing of feral cats and worked as an assistant at Adrienne's Dog Training School.

For decades we've owned and rented out our own houses and understand how heartbreaking it can be when tenants are negligent. We promise to look after your property as if it were our own.

Alan is the ultimate handyman, an expert at maintaining swimming pools and keeping a property ship shape. Glynis has a passion for gardening and has recently completely revamped our own garden.

For six years soon after moving to Canberra, Glynis, a teacher by profession, worked as a communications/client liaison officer for the ACT Government. Other than that we've been self-employed since our mid-twenties, and most recently owned a small scale soap manufacturing business. We're resourceful, responsible, honest and dependable, with references available to those who'd like more information.

Looking after other people's homes and beloved pets is a very special privilege. We take great pride in being competent and responsible house sitters, and most of all, providing your pets with the best possible care, attention and affection in your absence.
