- When not house sitting I can be found at Green Point, NSW (the one near Forster, not the one on the Central Coast) or Attunga, NSW (near Tamworth) - though I am usually house sitting - see my schedule below
- Coastal locations preferred, though can be convinced to venture inland...
- Enjoy travel and new locations... so am open to heading interstate... past house sits have included ACT, QLD, TAS, VIC, SA, WA, NZ & Singapore... haven't been to the NT yet... Check out my schedule below and if you think I could fit you in let me know
- Transport is a Subaru station wagon - any kind of off-street parking would be appreciated
- I like gardening... I have a regular housesit where I just look after the garden...
- I do not charge to housesit
- Internet access would be appreciated though I can get by with my own mobile data... if I can get a signal
- Open to return sits if everyone concerned likes the idea - at least 75% of my schedule is made up of return house sits - but I enjoy new sits...

Steve recently sat my home and looked after my dog, a female border collie, for 4 months and I cannot thank him enough for his care, for my home and dog
I would recommend Steve to house sit for any period of time, after such a long time away I came back to a well tended house and yard and a happy doggie
During the time away Steve would email me weekly and keep me up to speed on how things were going
I have no hesitation in asking Steve to house sit for me again in the future

House sit 18/3/16 to 4/4/16 (I have since returned for more sits the latest 8/6/20 to 15/6/20)

Steve has just minded my cat Cinnamon and my house for the past two weeks. Both were very well cared for - Cinny was looking for him all day yesterday and going into his room and sitting on the bed. The house was immaculate when I returned and the plants and garden alive and well cared for. Cinnamon was healthy and happy. Steve answered my texts and emails immediately whilst I was overseas which gave me great peace of mind. I just hope he is available to house sit for me again on my next holiday. Steve is reliable and caring and very trustworthy. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to house sit your house and pets. Thank you very much Steve.
