Testimonials by our Home Owners

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 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 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.”

testimonial by Maree

“ Hi Sue & Mel, absolutely love the website, I joined in December 2013 as a Home Owner looking for someone to look after our house & pets for 63 days while we travelled America. We found a lovely couple Pamela & Chris we had the pleasure of them coming and staying with us a few days before needed so we got to know them and they got to know our pets before we drove away for the next 10 weeks. We keep in constant contact via emails and Facebook while we were away also, so peace of mind knowing that everything back home was ok. I'm in the process of finding someone to look after house/pets for a week this time in August and have already have someone interested. As of tonight we (myself and hubby) have decided that we would like to actually do the house sitting ourselves along with our teenage kids. The main reason is the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter that the kids will be off doing their own thing and we will have more time to get into travelling around our own country, also we want to involve the kids in the house sitter lifestyle so once they become independent living that house sitting can be an option for them. I'm hoping for a very successful house sitting experience with Mind a Home, I have highly recommended your website.”

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.”

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 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”

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.  ”

Anthony - Mandurah WA Ballina, New South Wales

“ 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 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!). ”

testimonial by Christoph

“ 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!”

Christoph - South Melbouren Vic Kulnura, New South Wales

“ 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 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 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 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”

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. ”

Kate S - Merimbula NSW Melbourne, Victoria

“ 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! ”

Robyn - Rosemount Qld Kureelpa, Queensland
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 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.”

Isa - Lilli Pilli, NSW
testimonial by Millie

“ 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.”

Millie - Wodonga, Vic

“ 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 ”

Lesley H - Byron Bay NSW
testimonial by Suzanne

“ 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.”

Suzanne - Clayton Bay SA

“ 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.  ”

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

“ 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
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

“ 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.  ”

testimonial by Ted

“ 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. ”
