Testimonials by our Home Owners

testimonial by Jim and Helen

“ We’ve been using Mindahome since 2012. When we go away, we prefer to have someone in our home to feed our cat, water the garden, bring in the mail, and just make the house look lived in. Looking at our history I see that we have found 20 house sitters in just over 5 years. Of course, we like sitters to do repeats, and that sometimes happens, but then people’s circumstances change and we need to find someone else. Using Mindahome is so easy! It takes just a minute or two to create a listing using a tried and true description and just entering new dates. Being close to town we get lots of interest, so we ‘unpublish’ after about 24 hours; sometimes less. Our practice is then to come up with a shortlist and then to interview 3 or 4 applicants. Most the people we see would fit the bill and it’s often tough to choose just 1. We’ve been happy with all our house-sitters; some have gone beyond the call of duty. One, when we texted him from Dubai to say our flight was on time, said he’d have buckwheat pancakes on the stove when we got in. Another one painted our front fence for a very reasonable fee. All have left our home clean and tidy. All have spoilt our cat with more affection than she gets from us. We recommend that people get house sitters when they go away. It works for us.”

testimonial by Kerry D

“ Just back from overseas and house immaculate and cat happy. Can't recommend this service highly enough especially Susan who looked after our little darling so well.”

testimonial by Melanie S

“ I would like to thank Mindahome for helping me find the best house sitters I have ever had. It only took 2 hours to find them after posting the ad, and that was after I had spent weeks trying to organise house sitters with another agency. I had a very relaxing month long holiday knowing that our house, garden and dog were in excellent hands. A fantastic service which I will use again.”

testimonial by Emily W

“ Just to thank you, once again, for keeping me "in the loop" with your informative newsletter. Very much appreciated, always. Lately, I have not been able to travel much due to poor health. But whenever I get the chance, I always talk about your services to my friends and family. Some cite BnB to me...however, I tell them, based on my past experiences with your house-sitters, that your service has an added advantage in terms of care and professionalism...with little or no dollars involved! More power to Mind-A-Home! ”

testimonial by Jo M

“ I got in contact with Mindahome 2 years ago. It was shortly after my husband past away and a friend gave me the address. I needed a short 5 day break. A lovely lady reacted to my email and we have become great friends. She has been minding my house and cat, Lara, now 3 times and we both are very fond of her. She is welcome any time and I will certainly contact her if I go away again. So thank you, Mindahome, for this lovely service.”

testimonial by Jane B

“ I have only just found your website. Up until now, I have been using two other websites – one is pretty good but not as good as yours, and the other one is unfriendly, clunky and very frustrating. I find your website so much easier to use and the assistance you offer is excellent. You seem to have a very good selection of house sitters subscribed as well.”

testimonial by Leanne D

“ I am a 1st time user of a house sitting site and I just wanted to tell you how impressed I am with experience. I have managed to find 3 different sitters for 3 different dates fairly quickly and painlessly. I thought I would be unsure about strangers in my house and , looking after my dog but, after meeting 2 of the sitters in person and having many calls and emails to the other I, am feeling very comfortable about it. They all seem to be friendly responsible and, genuinely caring people who I have enjoyed meeting. I may even consider becoming a sitter myself , Thank you for providing this service, it is such a great idea.”

testimonial by Warren P

“ We have just returned from a 10 day stay in Bali. During that time we engaged the assistance of Danielle after making contact through Mindahome (1st time experience). We wish to let you know what a fantastic experience this has been for our thoroughbred gelding, Nick; 3 dogs, Buddy, Charlie and Oscar ; 2 Turtles, 5 fish; oh and not to forget the Gander, Cookies. We are very grateful for the attention that Danni gave them and we wouldn't know that she had stayed in our home other than the happy well fed animals when we returned. We can happily recommend Danni as a trustworthy and very capable house sitter. Thanks for providing such a great web service.”

testimonial by Sue

“ Hello Mindahome. We have just had ..and will continue to have ..a wonderful experience with Terry and Julie's property sitting expertise and enthusiasm. It has been and is wonderful as owners of a more remote property, to have people come and care for our animals and property with all the enthusiasm and care that Julie and Terry showed. Thank you to them and thank you to Mindahome for providing the vehicle to bring us together.”

testimonial by Sue and Bill

“ To whom it may concern, I used your service for the first time May/June this year. I wasn`t at all sure what to expect or what to do but managed to bumble through. I was surprised at the response to my ad(had no idea what I was doing) and the sitters that applied. We chose The Sollys (Robbie and Stu) because the moment I spoke to them I knew they would care for our home, and more importantly our two beloved staffies. I was so right!! they did everything and more than they said they would. My husband and I were in China and it was wonderful to see photos of our dogs so happy and healthy and our home well cared for. Our children were coming from Sydney to take over from Robbie and Stu and can you believe the extra mile they went to. They drove our car with the baby seat to the airport to meet our kids and hand over the keys. To anyone wanting a reliable caring sitter/s do not go past the Sollys. Your most valuable things will be loved and treasured just like you would yourself. I will certainly use the Sollys and your service again. Cheers Sue and Bill G”

testimonial by Judi T

“ I would just like to say how effective Mindahome is. I advertised for a house sitter and within four days I had 8 replies and found my sitter. Thank you Mindahome. Happy Healthy House Sitters”

testimonial by Anita

“ Dear Mindahome, Thank you for your wonderful house and pet sitting site. I used this site for the first time last week when I needed to go to Melbourne for a week. I used the services of one of your house sitters Deborah (ID 8BV) and Deb was amazing. I have 3 cats and she cared for them extremely well. Deb answered my ad straight away and happily for me cared for my 3 cats and my home on fairly short notice. My cats and home were well looked after. Deb is a really friendly and responsible person and of course she was very tidy and accommodating. I would not hesitate to recommend Deb to anyone wanting to utilize her services. You can rest easy that your home and pets will be well cared for by Deb and I would not hesitate to use Deb again if she is available. Thanks again Mindahome-what a great site. I have recommended it to 3 people already! Kind regards Anita”

testimonial by Katie

“ A big thank you to all at Mindahome. This is my first experience with Mindahome and Julie & John from Qld minded my house and 2 loving pets while I was on a 6 week holiday. They were fabulous I can't thank them enough for keeping the house, gardens so clean tidy and safe. My 2 adorable pet dogs (my children) were so content when I got home; a big thing for me to find them so well cared for. I will certainly use Jill and John again and continue to recommend you web site. Well done to all and thank you so very much. Katie.”

testimonial by Janet

“ I joined up to find a house sitter just 21 hours ago. Your website is amazing and SO user friendly. I am so pleased we have found someone to mind our house and dog. Excellent service! Thanks so much,”

testimonial by Andrew & Karen

“ Hi Mindahome, We have just had the very good fortune to have Sue and David look after our pets and house for the last 10 days. What a wonderful couple, from the first time we meet them we felt like we had known them for ages. They cared for our 3 dogs , 2 cats and one little calf like they where their own. Our house was spotless when we returned and I don't think the pets missed us at all thanks to the spoiling of them from Sue and David. We cannot recommend this couple highly enough, they are fabulous . We would love to have them again for our next holiday and thanks Mindahome for providing such wonderful people and service.

testimonial by Pam

“ Hi,  Thank you for the most wonderful service!  We have just returned from a 3 week worry free holiday in Vietnam knowing that our home was in the hands of the great Julie and Bill. They were the most perfect house sitters - our dogs didn't miss us at all - they were thoroughly spoilt and pampered.  Our house was clean and sparkly, the lawns mowed and a pile of wood chopped in readiness for our return. Thank you Julie and Bill - and Mindahome - we are thrilled and grateful and would recommend you to anyone without any hesitation.

testimonial by Pam J

“ Hello, I was away last weekend from Friday to Sunday & I had housesitters in to look after my little dog. They were fabulous & I got them off your site their names are John & Judy from Corryong, Victoria. I can fully recommend them as being honest, reliable housesitters. .”

testimonial by Wendy & Tony

“ Good Morning. Just wanted to give you a belated thank you for providing us with house sitters, Christine and Neil.  They house sat for us for over a month at the end of February whilst we were in South Africa . Unfortunately while we were away our precious dog Tickey (age 15) became very ill and in the end the vet could not save him.  We could not have looked after Tickey any better than Christine and Neil did – they went beyond the call of duty in helping him through his last few days with love and compassion.  We know this from the emails and telephone calls that past between us. When we arrived home Christine and Neil met us at the station and had cheese and wine waiting for us when we finally got back to our apartment after nearly 30 hours of travel.  On top of that Christine had a cooked casserole which was waiting for us in the fridge for the following day. We were not lucky, we were blessed, that Christine and Neil came into our lives, and plan to keep in touch with them as friends.

testimonial by Diana L

“ Hi Sue & Mel The second time around I've had a house sitter through your website. Again I've been very happy with the service. Liz looked after my doggies as if they were her own left my home clean and tidy, the two darlings were bathed when I got home and seemed to have had a great time with Liz. Happy customer ”

testimonial by Sonia & Carl

“ Thankyou Mindahome for assisting in finding our wonderful house/pet sitter Julie.  Julie was reliable, capable and caring, our home and elderly cocker spaniel Smudge were both very well cared for and when we returned the house was immaculate and Smudge very happy.  Your site is very user friendly and we had the option of several house sitters taking all the worry away from leaving your home and pets.

“ Hi to Mindahome, we have just had our first experience with a sitter and have been extremely pleased. It was with some hesitation that we decided to look into this sitting business but after meeting Robyn and seeing her with Oliver we felt more comfortable about everything. On our return the house was clean and tidy and Oliver was not as stressed as he has been when having to stay elsewhere. Many thanks to Mindahome and Robyn for a very positive first time experience.

testimonial by Leanne A

“ Thank you Mindahome! Through this website, I was able to go away and leave my home and cat safely and securely in the hands of my wonderful, fantastic housesitter, Helen. I could not have asked for a better, kinder, more reliable housesitter than Helen. I have absolutely no hesitation to recommend her for any housesitting jobs she may choose to do in the future. Just as long as she's available for my next trip! Thank you also for the House Sitting Guide. I was able to download this wonderful, comprehensive guide and edit it so that it was appropriate for my particular situation. Again, many thanks. ”

testimonial by Lachlan & Victoria

“ We have used this site twice and been very impressed both times at the ease, security advice, choice of house/cat sitter (28 replies with 4 days!) & standard of replies. Fantastic service. We had peace of mind and a sitter met and chosen within a week? Many thanks for such a brilliant service.”

testimonial by Claudia & Fred

“ Dear Mel and Sue, I would just like to say thank-you for such a wonderful job you do assisting people like my husband, Fred, and I find brilliant House Minders. We have been fortunate to have a very able couple mind our house for us while we went overseas for six weeks last year - Joy and Dennis. They had the task of not only taking care of our 4 1/2 acre property at Mount Best in South Gippsland ... but also the responsibility of looking after our ten month old Australian Shepard Puppy - very lively and demanding of attention and our three cats. Well the pusses fell in love with them at first sight and were well pampered with lots of cuddles and our dog had the best of times romping round the garden with their gorgeous Labrador, Lulu. We came home to a spotless house and beautifully cared for furries.  And as they're still staying in Foster until the end of May we continue to see them socially. We couldn't recommend them more highly to others in search of a terrific couple for House Minding. Thanks once again.”

testimonial by Apeetha A

“ You should know that (as no doubt many of us tell you constantly): I truly appreciate Mindahome. It is tremendously important to me to go to India each year even if only for two months and it is invaluable to know that a house-sitter from Mindahome will be here while I am away to take good care of the gorgeous cats who live with me and the plants in the garden. Cats are independent and the garden well nurtured by Melbourne's graceful weather, but comforting to know a house sitter will be here. May all go well with all of you there behind the scenes.”

testimonial by Maggie R

“ Thank you so much for what you do ! You offer the best service, and we have been very lucky finding suitable people to help mind our pets and home while we holiday, stress free. And in this new era of the sharing economy and sustainability, does it ever make sense to have people make use of an empty house, while taking care of pets. So, thank you!”

testimonial by Denise K

“ Hi, I just wanted to say I love your service and find it very easy to use.   We have had Malcolm and Janet stay twice and have had no issues whatsoever.  Our cat misses them when they go and the place is left spotless!!  Although some people may be a little unsure about having strangers come and stay, we have had no issues whatsoever.  Denise House sitters Malcolm and Janets Mindahome profile: https://mindahome.com.au/house-sitters-available/malcolmDen-janet.5706.html

testimonial by Sandra D

“ We have just returned from Europe after using Mindahome for the first time. I was rather apprehensive but after meeting Liz and Myles, our sitters of choice, we set off quite happily. Our home was clean and welcoming when we got back, our dog was bathed and relaxed and our chickens had started laying eggs! We love this service and have just today confirmed our new sitters for the Christmas holidays. Thank you for such a great resource!!”

testimonial by Judy & Wilf

“ Kelly and Adam house and dog sat for us Feb March 2015. We were delayed a few days and they were happy to extend their sit for us. What a lovey energetic couple they were. Even mowed the lawns. They have headed off to Exmouth and then over the top. I have no hesitation in recommending these guys if they are coming your way. Thanks Mindahome for your great service.”

“ Hi - I just wanted to say how impressed I am with your site. I only found it 2 days ago and placed (with a bit of trepidation having never used strangers to look after my house and dog !) our ad and within 24 hours I had organised everything with a great family who replied to our ad. I have been stressing for a week or 2 about how to find someone so your site has been incredibly useful! We had several inquiries on day one and all sounded great so I can now look forward to going away in the future and not having the worry or extra expense of finding a dog minder or kennel! Great result - thank you ”

testimonial by Kathy

“ Thank you Mindahome for letting us find Erica & David, they were wonderful looking after our garden & home. We got back from our holiday & our home was perfect as we left it, they were so friendly & easy to get to know. David has a great scence of humour I loved it, & Erica was such a caring Lady . We have no trouble giving them an excellent testimonial anyone who has them in their home will not be disappointed. Thank You.”

testimonial by Trish and Don

“ Hello Mind A Home. We would like to highly compliment your house and pet sitters Regina and Harvey for their recent care of both our home and our very dear dog, Lolita. It was our first experience with Mind A Home and they guided us through the process, resulting in a mutually beneficial outcome for each of us. There is certainly a lot to consider and to document, to ensure a smooth stay and to cover a range of potential situations. Very well worth the effort and to be able to leave our beloved pet in her own environment with extra good care. Regina and Harvey arranged to meet us well before we left for our 4 week holiday, to go through our requirements etc, get to know Lolita, a feel for our house, where everything was kept and how the electrical items worked. They kept in regular contact during our absence and despite the cold and rainy weather, managed to keep Lolita happy with her daily walks. We returned to a smiling animal and a neat and tidy home. Our sincere thanks to you at Mind A Home for introducing us and ensuring an absolutely worry free and most enjoyable holiday. Regina and Harvey are fabulous. Warm wishes. Trish and Don”

testimonial by E.M.W

“ Thanks for your prompt reply. The house sitters whom I sent a recommendation for, Julie and Murray, have just informed me that they've received my recent review. I take this opportunity to also thank Mind-A-Home for the wonderful and invaluable service it is extending to families intending to go on a vacation. Your website has really been a great help - well set up and organised, with a clear and uncluttered format, and a list of well-screened and very professional house - sitters. Well done, and more power to Mind-A-Home! Hubby and I will definitely recommend it to family and friends.”

testimonial by Des and Carol

“ Just a short note to thank you for sourcing a person to housesit our home. We had engaged someone who was a disaster and eventually left after a couple of weeks. We were interstate at the time and contacted your site to source another. Well we hit the jackpot, our new sitter (male) was just finished in Sydney, and travelled to us in north Queensland to be here to take over, as he was an ex North Queenslander he knew the area. He looked after our house for over 4 months, gave us regular updates, handled all details in a very professional manner, caring for our gardens, hedge trimming, lawns , vegetable garden , fruit trees, ornamentals etc. He organised mail and obtained any necessary requirements on our behalf for weed control, a new hedge trimmer, fuel, garden waste disposal and so on. We have never met the man, but feel like we know him as a friend. He had to reluctantly leave for another job a few days before our return as he wanted to meet us to see if everything was ok. Well to say ok was to totally understate what awaited us, our house yard looked like a 5 star resort, beautifully mowed, edges trimmed, gardens totally weed free and looking great, our fruit trees had grown beautifully. Next was our house, talk about perfection, absolutely nothing was out of place, everything was spotless, fresh mats on the floors, windows all cleaned, kitchen appliances on doilies, fridge and pantry beautifully laid out, flowers strategically located, and to top it off a bottle of scotch to celebrate our homecoming. In the garage all equipment was cleaned and tidily laid out with the applicable accessories beside them, it was like a display in Bunnings. Having a person of this calibre made our trip so much more enjoyable, not having concerns as to what may await us on our return, as we had friends call in and assured us this man was spot on with everything he did and a hell of a nice guy as well. In our wildest dreams we could not envisage such professionalism as Zeb displayed, we hope to catch up with him soon to personally thank him. As he is about 1.5 hours away at present. Thanks again Des and Carol”

testimonial by Sam & Dan

“ Dear Mindahome, I'd like to express our thanks for putting us in touch with a lovely couple by the name of Daniel & Andrea who minded our pets and home on the Sunshine Coast during January of this year. From the first point of contact they were very easy to deal with and friendly, and were also flexible in agreeing to come and housesit a day earlier than planned due to a last minute change in arrangements. With three mischievous goats, a dog, chickens and fish to care for, they certainly had their work cut out for them! When we returned, the house was left in a great condition and all the pets seemed very happy and well cared for. We would be delighted to have them back to mind our home and pets again when we next go away, and have already recommended them, and the Mindahome service to our friends. Thanks again”

Sam & Dan - Diddillibah Qld
testimonial by Jim & Marea

“ Good morning, It is with much pleasure to send you this message. As first time users of your site for Sitters. We had the most amazing sitters Brett & Kathryn to mind our Home and our much loved little Furbabies. On our return.. our home was immaculate, as we are very fussy people.. our lawns were kept just as well. There was not a thing to be done on our return. It even too our little dogs awhile to get used to us being back home.. that says a lot also for how well they loved Brett & Kathryn. and show they were well looked after. We would highly recommend Brett & Kathryn for House sitting. We are having them come back in March . Thank you”

“ This video was provided by one of our happy home owners from New South Wales. Lilly the dog and cats Toby and William have been well taken care of by Mindahome house sitters.  ”

Claire - NSW
testimonial by Jeanette & Vaughan

“ Thankyou Mindahome for assisting in finding a wonderful sitter Renee. Renee was a reliable,capable & caring for both our home & elderly timid cat Tommy. Both were very well cared for & when we returned the house was immaculate & Tom very happy. Renee over the month we were away often sent photo’s of Tom being very very spoilt. On our return Tom was reluctant to return to his old ways after being so spoilt.”

testimonial by Gail

“ We have just returned from a 10 day getaway during which Bernie and Di took the best care of our home, garden and cat. I cannot recommend this lovely couple highly enough. I am really appreciative of how easily operable Mindahome is! It's a fantastic site and I really like the way you alert people who have indicated our location in their preferences. That makes it so simple. Thank you for a wonderful service.”

testimonial by Mary H

“ I placed a wanted advert on your site as my regular sitter let me down at short notice. I was amazed at the responses and could have used a few of the applicants. Yikes! I had to choose! Something I didn't expect to have to do!  I would certainly use your site again and recommend your services in fact I already have told a friend. Thank you so much:)”

Mary H - Mandurah WA

“ Hi Mindahome We ran our add for a house sitter only a few days ago and a lovely couple turned up here today being just perfect. They're sitting for us for two months over Christmas so we can have a break. Unbelievable! Thank you guys so much!”

Paul & Mel J - QLD
testimonial by Anthony

“ Hi Mindahome, having just returned from our holiday in Europe, we cannot recommend our "Mindahome found" house and pet sitters Lorraine and Joe highly enough. On our return, we found the house and garden absolutely immaculate, and two very very happy labradors!   Joe had kept the swimming pool in excellent condition even buying an essential spare part for the pool cleaner and repairing it. This was the second time that we found our sitters through Mindahome and, in each instance, the service provided has been excellent. ”

“ We are the people from Port Douglas, who needed a house sitter. We put in an ad at your website. The next day we were contacted by a couple who seem perfect. Thank you for your excellent service. Kind regards,”

Frieda - QLD

“ We have just returned from a wonderful holiday, and can’t thank our house sitters Rob and Cheryl enough!!  They came to our home to meet us a few weeks ago, and we felt they were the right people for the job!  They had a genuine caring attitude towards us and our animals and home.  We have a dozen or so chooks, fish, a cat and a dog that just turned 18months old (so a puppy really!)  We left for our holiday feeling very comfortable that our treasured pets and home were in good hands.  We received regular updates from Rob and Cheryl on how everything was going, which was wonderful!  They walked our dog regularly, which we really appreciated. They had cleaned the leaves out of the pool (a big ongoing job here!) and taken very good care of everything.  They even nursed a couple of the chooks back to good health by applying betadine on sores for us!  We would definitely have them back again, and would highly recommend them to anyone needing a house sitter! ”

testimonial by Cathy

“ Hi Sue and Mel, I have a couple of chooks and live on my own. My neighbours are fantastic but I don't like to ask them to do more than they already do, so I found Mindahome and tried it out. My first sitters were a couple from near Geelong. They were amazing - when I got home, the house had been cleaned inside and out (with a pressure cleaner!). The lawn was mown and the vegetable garden was planted. I was so impressed I raved to my friends about this couple - they now house sit for multiple friends of mine, and I can't get them! Since then, I've used Mindahome on a number of occasions, each time with great success. My last sitter was fabulous too, he even cleaned the chook pen which was definitely not part of the job description! Many people ask if I hide the valuables, and don't I worry about having strangers in my home? I talk about being able to check references, and about the success I have had with housesitters. It's peace of mind knowing the house, and most importantly animals, are taken care of. I know I will come back and my only problem will be sorting the mail. I cannot recommend house sitting, and Mindahome, highly enough. ”

Cathy - Warragul, Vic

“ We placed an ad for a housitter at Jimboomba Qld today and within hours of the ad appearing we had a positive reply and have now engaged the services of a housesitter. The ladies name is Janice and although we have not met her yet, she seems just the person we are after. Many thanks for a great service and this is the 2nd time we have used Mindahome and we are very happy. Again many thanks.”

Marie & Tom P - Jimboomba Qld
testimonial by Kerrie and Jeff

“ Hello, we have just returned from a two week holiday in Vietnam and had our home and large dog looked after by Your Perfect Carers, Beverley and Greg. They went out of there way to come over from Victoria to Adelaide at short notice. We could not be happier, the house, garden and of dog where well cared for and we would not hesitate to recommend this couple and thank them so much for all their help. Kerrie and Jeff”

“ We have just had Dave and Sue mind our home for a week and we cannot sing their praises highly enough.  They minded our property beautifully, took excellent care of our Staffie, Sophie and even prepared a lovely homecoming meal for us.  They certainly went above and beyond and didn't only maintain our 5 acre property but improved it. We returned to mown lawns, driveways blown, a spotless pool, home and tennis court and a very happy do.  This is the first time we have used Mindahome and we are totally sold!  What a fantastic service.  Many thanks.”

testimonial by Aqua & Adam

“ Hi Sue and Mel! My hubby and I needed housesitters for the month of November to take care of our four legged children.  We had so many replies to our ad (must have been the photo I added of our puppy!), and ended up hitting it off big time with Kaylene and Alf  - they were the first couple we interviewed and just clicked - they had a wonderful time staying in our area (East St Kilda), and an awesome time with our little 'Buddie'.  They texted me every few days to let me know how he was and when we got back, the house was as clean as we had left it and Buddie was sorry to see them go (but very happy we were home).  I can't recommend them more to your clients - what genuinely lovely people!  We have continued to remain friends after the fact which is just fantastic - I will definitely be calling on them again in the future.  Thanks again - the peace of mind made our trip even better! ”

testimonial by Gordon J

“ Thank you very much for you help . I would like to thank your team for all their help since I joined last year.I have told heaps of people about your services and my finding Lorna on your site . I have given Mindahome my highest recommendation to them.Many thanks”

testimonial by Eric

“ Through you we were LUCKY enough to have Kathy and Patrick apply and then house sit for us from 23rd July to 4th Nov. It is impossible to express our delight with this couple, they exceeded our expectations as well as exceeding our hopes. Being very friendly and pleasant they also had our home in a spotless condition as well as having our garden looking far better than we could originally imagine. Not only this but we were welcomed back with hot scone etc. Then when unpacking into the fridge was a beautifully prepared salad with the seasoned sliced meat already prepared. We hoped for but never expected that we could be lucky enough for a couple like this.”

“ Thank you for an amazing site. We have just returned home after almost a month away. Our house/pet sitter who we found on your site, did a wonderful job & is a delightful lady we would recommend highly.  ”

Trish & Rol - Royal Park, SA
testimonial by Erwin & Veronika

“ Having just returned from our long holiday (4 months) overseas, we wish to thank Mindahome and especially Raelene and Brad with their lovely boys who looked after our home, large garden and friendly German Shepherd dog. They did a fantastic job, taking care of everything. We highly recommend the family without any reservation. We also wish to congratulate Mindahome for their great concept, making it all possible. Erwin & Veronika”

testimonial by Alison

“ I had never heard of this site when a friend recommended it after I’d had a nasty experience with a private sitter, and like most people I was apprehensive about having a stranger in my home. My experience on two occasions now with two different Mindahome sitters has been so easy and stress free that the hardest part has been disappointing so many applicants. (My first sitter has a regular booking in July next year which shows she’s loyal as well as having a good reputation. My next sitter? Well, my cats came out to meet her – that’s endorsement enough!). ”

Alison - Erindale Adelaide
testimonial by Ivana K

“ It was a pleasure to have Christine and Warren as house sitters. They are very kind, friendly, responsible and clean. And our Bernie cat found his new friends, I believe. I actually asked them for a help with Bernie twice as it was such a good experience the first time. After coming back home I really felt home the moment I stepped in :)”

testimonial by Marlene and Col

“ Thank you Mind a home for your wonderful website. We have just returned from a three week holiday and was fortunate to find the perfect house and cat sitter. Terry (Kiwi Angler) using your website. At our request Terry arrived a little earlier to check out our 2 cats, Coco and Sunny (indoor ragdolls). We were amazed how both the cats went straight up to Terry as we have only had these rescue cats for 6 months and they are both shy animals. We were very happy to receive updates and photos of the cats regularly and because of this we knew the animals were in very capable hands. Because of a delay on our return Terry agreed to stay an extra day and when we arrived home all was in order just as we had left everything. We would have no hesitation in recommending Terry as a competent and caring house sitter and we would love to welcome him back into our house when we travel again. Many thanks again for your wonderful service. Marlene and Col, Coco and Sunny.”

testimonial by Isa

“ Hi Sue & Mel,  I just want to say thank you to all the lovely people who responded to my request for a house & cat  sitter in Lilli Pilli. Never having done this before, I was unsure of how it would work, but had a recommendation from a friend who uses your site as a sitter. The responses were amazingly quick and effortless. Any of the people who responded, I'm sure, would have been perfect for the position. Thanks for a wonderful service.”

testimonial by Kate S

“ We would like to thank Mindahome for such an excellent website where we found our house-sitters Richard and Jo. They are such a lovely couple and cared for our pets and our house as if they were their own. Our house was spotless on our return and our 2 dogs and cat were obviously 'in love' with their new friends! We cannot speak highly enough of Richard and Jo and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone. Thanks again.”

“ Thank you Mindahome. Last Saturday 11/01/2014 at about 6.45am I placed an ad with you. I got a reply at 9.05am had the interview over coffee at the shopping centre and as a result I had house sitter by 11am. Once again thank you. ”

“ Dear Mel & Sue, Thank you for your Mindahome site and the professional way you present and maintain it. This is the third time we have used your site and our pet/house sitters have been great - lovely people who it is a pleasure to meet. We have highly recommended your site to our friends as a result. Congratulations to both of you on a job well done. Kind Regards Ross & Denise”

“ I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Eileen and her daughter for house sitting appointments. After our first contact via email and phone, I invited both over to introduce them to the house and dogs. Eileen and her daughter are very friendly and accommodating and it was easy to develop trust that they would look caringly after everything in our absence. Once we had left, Eileen kept me informed about our 2 puppies via text messages. They were well looked after, with two walks per day, and even driven to our local park for a swim and a run - and settling them down for the night with their carrot (our dogs seem to be reincarnated rabbits)! It was truly relaxing to be on holiday, knowing that my house and my pets were being looked after. I know who I’ll call before our next trip!”

“ Hello Sue and Mel. We have just returned from overseas and our housesitter (found via Mindahome website) was brilliant. She was professional, careful and caring of our pets, and the house and garden are in better condition than when we left it. We have 3 large fish tanks to be taken care of and all was perfect on our return.”

“ Have had an ad for some few months and find this site to be GREAT! I did have a booking for some housesitters, but just this morning they had to cancell as their house in Tasmania has been vandelised and they need to return, BUT lo and behold last night I had an email from Brendan M., so hopped onto the computer and the phone (can't leave this to chance)...................made contact and now we have a house sitter without stopping to draw breath. This service is marvelous. Thank you so much.”
