I am a long term Aussie House Sitters fan. I've met some wonderful people through this site and have delighted in the opportunity to spend time in areas that are unfamiliar to me. It brings me great joy and a sense of accomplishment to look after peoples home and their beloved pets, knowing they can rest assured that things have been taken care of in their absence. I just renewed my membership and found the process straightforward and effortless. Thank you Aussie House Sitters for the great platform you provide and for the unexpected bonus of receiving a platinum reward. How exciting. You have made my day. Patricia
