More Information

Travelling Australia for 2 years, with camper, 2 small dogs and two adult sons, with boat.

Penny and I own our own house on 5 acres and have
previously owned a 320 acre farm, where we built our own house, yards, fences and sheds and looked after livestock.

We are genuine animal lovers.

Penny is a landcare volunteer, and interested in the natural environment.

We are both very active and fit and enjoy bush walking, bike riding, exploring, boating and camping.

Our two sons are young filmmakers and good fishermen.

We have house sit several properties through another house sitting website, AussieHouseSitters, with great reviews.


'Aussie House Sitters' reviews below:

''It is a pleasure to have the peace of mind whilst you are away on holidays that your property and animals are being well looked after. Reuben and Penny looked after our 160 acre farm like it was their own. From moving our cattle herd from paddock to paddock and caring for and exercising our 5 kelpies. Thank you from all of us at Bimini park.''

''Penny and Reuben, Fantastic couple who have many life and practical skills.Perfect for looking after properties that are not suburbanized. eg. pumps,solar,gardens,chooks ,dogs and acreage. They travel self contained but we still gave them full use of all if they wanted to. Honest ,down to earth good people. Can't go wrong with these people looking after ur property.''

''Penny and Reuben are THE most FABULOUS house sitters in the world!!! I'm a GP in Cairns and was lucky enough to have them look after my house,pot plants and garden while I was overseas for a month. Not only was the house spotless when we returned but the pot plants&garden looked absolutely incredible & in a much better state than we left it! They weeded the whole garden&even made us a few new gorgeous flower beds and spoiled us with some new flowers&herbs!! :) :) Penny and Reuben are extremely reliable and trustworthy & were wonderful with communication while we were away. I can't thank them enough for looking after our house and would HIGHLY recommend them to everyone!!! :):) We definitely are hoping that they will available to housesit for us the next time we are on holiday! Thank you again Penny&Reuben!!! :):)''

''Reuben and Penny came to Bloomfield, Far North Qld to look after our property and 3 dogs for a month whilst Dave and I travelled overseas. I couldn't have asked for better house sitters. I was so worried about leaving my boisterous, pampered young rescue dogs with people they didn't know. Penny and Reuben took the time to visit before the sit to introduce themselves to both us and the animals. They also listened to my endless instructions and took them all onboard without a worry. They medicated our urinary incontinent dog, gave all three dogs long walks twice a day and gave them heaps of loving care. Not only were the dogs cared for but our property never looked better on our arrival. They certainly treated our place like it was their own, attending to the gardens and helping with planting and mulching, even removing the endless cane toad population! We also had some very pleasant home improvements that were so unexpected and we are extremely grateful for. If we arrange another trip I will be sure to call Penny and Reuben straight away and hope with all fingers crossed that they are free!! I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Thanks again guys.''
