More Information

Hi, we are The Bromleys at your service, Bruce, Lisa and Savannah.
Latest news and available dates.
We successfully completed our first house sit in Longford, review below, and are currently in Geeveston where we have two consecutive house sitting bookings until 15th October. We then commence a house sit in West Launceston on 25/10 until 6/12 and a further one over Christmas from 20/12 to 16th January 2010. Our available dates therefore are 15-10 to 25-10, 6-12 to 20-12 and after 16-01-20. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need a house sitter during these dates.

Now something about us, where we are from and why we have chosen to do house sitting.

Hi, I'm Bruce. We arrived in Sydney from the UK on 8th July following the sale of our house in Worcestershire, UK and the granting of my permanent residency visa. For 7 weeks we lived with my wife's mother (and 3 cats) in Shellharbour, NSW while we waited for a few personal possessions to arrive and sort out our Medicare and buy our 'Ellie' a Nissan Elgrand.

We arrived on The Spirit of Tasmania on the 12th September. Our goal is to eventually buy somewhere in Tasmania but we are keen to explore the island to find the perfect place to settle down. What better way to search for our island hideaway than moving around from place to place while providing a quality pet and home sitting service throughout the state. If you are planning to be away during any of our available dates, please contact us. We are able to travel anywhere throughout Tasmania.

Lisa and I have been married for 17 years and were fortunate to have our daughter, Savannah, later in our lives. She is now aged 9 and is home schooled while we are be travelling around.
I am 64 and retired in July 2018 from 13 years of being a casual primary school teacher to focus on selling up our bungalow, with 1 acre adjacent to a forest in Worcestershire, which we had lived in for 12 years, - a beautiful part of rural England. I am a keen D.I.Y. handyman and gardener who doesn't mind some light physical work doing some maintenance or gardening jobs around a property.
Lisa, who is 55, prior to coming to live in the UK for the last 12 years originated from Paramatta in NSW and had careers as a Dept of Education librarian and working for the A.T.O. Last year, she had a hernia operation so she is keen to do more walking to build up her fitness. We are both non-smokers. I like an occasional cider but besides that we have no addictive or negative habits!!!

Our daughter is an animal fanatic and confident around all sorts of animals. She has a list for a menagerie of animals to keep once we have our own home therefore the experience looking after other people's animals alongside us will give her an insight into the responsibility she will have to have. When she is old enough, she has her mind set to work in an animal rescue centre. It was upsetting for us to move without our four cats however we were fortunate to find all of them new homes but we are desperate for some feline fussing!

Prior to our marriage, my wife had been a dog person having kept various breeds since early childhood. I have been a cat person. In addition I have kept goats, rabbits, chickens, and ducks. You can be assured that between us your pets and animals will be looked after and cared for as if they were our own. They will be our number one priority and will only be left for occasional short periods while getting a feel and experience for living within your location as well as taking in any local tourist attractions.

On a personal note for our own needs, we would require accommodation as a family of three. We usually have different individual entertainment preferences therefore a TV and a home wi-fi link would be welcome specially to access Savannah's home education links.

We would welcome sitting opportunities of one week or longer preferably, but whatever the length of time or the animals you have please do not hesitate to contact us. We have Skype and Facetime would welcome chatting about what we can offer to meet your house and pet sitting needs.

We look forward to you contacting us.
Bruce, Lisa and Savannah

REVIEW Rating 5* from Olwen & Patrick - Longford
Length of Housesit 2 weeks
We were very fortunate to have Bruce, Lisa and Savannah look after our home and pets while we were away for two weeks. The most important part of the housesit for us was our dog Archie, He appeared very well looked after when we came home, as did our three chickens! Our home was spotlessly clean when we returned and a delight to return to. While we didn't request any specific gardening chores, we were delighted to see that all our plants had been well watered. Bruce and Lisa communicated with us while we were overseas, even sending through a pic of Archie. We left feeling very confident about leaving our home and pets to a family we had not previously met, and we were not disappointed. We highly recommend this delightful family.
