Vicki was responsible and reliable - a good house and dog sitter and we appreciated her flexibility.
 
SUE (Rangiora South Island, Feb 2024 - 1 week 2 nights) From Kiwi House Sitters
I can only reinforce all the positive points on Vick’s reviews! Everything was great! We had a time arranged to discuss the housesit over the phone in advance as Vicki was in Australia at that time. All communication was prompt with updates and photos of our happy pets while we were away. Our elderly dog was in great shape and very content and she managed to keep our very greedy cat from gaining any weight. The house was beautiful when we returned, very grateful as we were home late evening, ... MORE
 
GILLIAN (Motueka South Island, Jan 2024 - 6 nights) From Kiwi House Sitters
Vicki looked after our 2 cats and our home with the utmost care. Our cats were beautifully groomed ( long haired Birmans) and she posted photos of them content and relaxed with her during the stay. Our home was left thoroughly clean and tidy, the plants were thriving and she left vases of cut flowers from the garden to welcome us home. I highly recommend Vicki to care for your animals and home. She was so respectful and had excellent communication. This meant we could relax and enjoy our ... MORE
 
ANGIE (Miramar North Island, Dec 2023 - 3 weeks) From Kiwi House Sitters
Vicki and Mario took excellent care of our boys. They were so obviously well cared for when we got back. Our house was immaculate and she did better with the house plants than I would have myself!
 
KATIE (Broughton England, Aug 2023 - 10 days) From House Sitters UK
We were delighted with Vicki and Mario's housesit for us. They were both extremely professional and took note of all our requests regarding the garden, the house and our pets. Vicki took time to get to know our cats and they were obviously very happy in her company. We returned home from our holiday to an immaculate house and very happy cats and fish. Thank you also to Mario for cutting the grass so well - it is really appreciated. Vicki also cared for all our outside plants and sweet peas and ... MORE
 
HELEN (Huntly Scotland, Jul 2023 - 2 weeks 2 nights) From House Sitters UK
We couldn’t be happier with Vicki and Mario. The dogs and cat adored them. The house was left immaculate and even the grass cut. . We can’t think of anyone better to housesit for us .
 
SUE (Keevil England, Jun 2023 - 15 days) From House Sitters UK
Vicki was great! We've got a large bush garden , a couple of dogs (one getting on a bit and requiring medication). Chooks, an aviary and large aquarium to look after. Vicki was meticulous in understanding what we required before she arrived. Vicki made the effort to come meet us and have a chat before we went away. When we got home, the house was spotless, everything had been looked after excellently. We would highly recommend Vicki for anyone looking for a great sitter.
 
CHRIS (Dalyellup WA, Feb 2023 - 9 nights)
Vicki was great as our house-sitter, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her for other house-sitting jobs. She was very prompt in her communication with us, and complete in her explanations to our varied questions. She came round to meet with us before the house-sit, and we left with no reservations about the safe hands we were leaving our home and cat in. Vicki did a great job looking after everything, and communicated with us promptly one morning when the cat was limping. It was just a small ... MORE
 
JOANNA (Subiaco WA, Sep 2022 - 15 days)
Vicki housesat our house for almost three weeks. She was very professional and her communication was excellent. We have a dog and a cat and our dog , Tilly, was so happy getting walked every day and all the attention she got I think she was quite sad when Vicki left! Our flights changed to a couple days earlier and one day later and Vicki was flexible and able to do these extra days for us which was amazing. While we were away Vicki updated us with pics of our fur babies. The house was ... MORE
 
AMY (Geraldton WA, Jul 2022 - 18 days)
Vicki gave our cats a wonderful experience - lots of love and attention and kept us updated with photos and information about how they were going. We came home to two very calm and happy boys. The garden was beautifully looked after and the house and yard were left completely spotless. We will definitely recommend Vicki to others and will contact her again if we need a house sitter.
 
ALI (Fremantle WA, Mar 2022 - One week)
I cannot recommend Vicki highly enough! She cared for our pets and garden and home perfectly; the house was immaculate on our return and our communication during our time away was fantastic. Thanks again - would have her back any time.
 
MARY (Australind WA, Jan 2022 - 1 week)
Our first time getting a house sitter and couldn't be happier. Vicki was fantastic in every area looking after our mini dachshunds and various other animals. The gardens were great and the house was perfect. Would definitely have her again
 
JESS (Bridgetown WA, Dec 2021 - 8 days)
Vicki has just completed our house sit and the whole experience was amazing. We did a meet and greet prior to the house sit and was instantly put at ease. Vicki went above and beyond what we asked of her and Layla was well walked and looked after, Our home was also well looked after and was immaculate when we returned. Vicki gave us regular updates and sent photos of Layla and we could see how happy and comfortable she was in Vicki's company. We would highly recommend Vicki for any house ... MORE
 
ANN (Rockingham WA, Oct 2021 - 2 weeks 5 days)
This did not go well , I came home a day early and drove by my house to see there was a car there even though she does not have one. I booked into accommodation and rang her she admitted to having invited some one else to stay there, without asking me. I found this very rude.
 
SUSAN (Bridgetown WA, Sep 2021 - 1 week 2 days)
This is the 1st neg review I've received. No surprise as I gave an honest review first...for the benefit other housesitters. I spent $130 for a B&B the night before the housesit foregoing breakfast as there wasn't time. It was known my daughter was giving me a lift back to Perth after ... MORE
Many thanks Vicki for looking after our rescue boy Moosie The house was immaculate when we returned home and our cat and plants all well loved. Thank you very much Vicki for all your input
 
SANDRA (Mount Lawley WA, Sep 2021 - 5 days)
Good communication and patience with my at times poor comms (was out of range quite a bit). Apparently Vicki took better care of my animals than we do! Definitely went above and beyond most sitters we've had, wouldn't hesitate to book her again.
 
ADAM (Alice Springs NT, Jul 2021 - 3 weeks)
What an odd review! Puzzled by whoevers? opinion re care of the animals? I respect all sentient beings/plant life, & have been petsitting permanently for years.....my level of pet/housesitting is the standard expected internationally. I've come to realise Aust is often lower. ... MORE
Vicki is a lovely lady who is wonderful with animals. We were very comfortable with her caring for our dogs (our babies!) and property whilst we were away. Thank you Vicki, we hope the world opens up to you being able to travel again soon.
 
MANDY (Melville WA, Mar 2021 - 8 days)
Vicki was able to house sit for us at very short notice. She cared for our sick elderly dog with the utmost of love and care I was completely at ease leaving her with Vicki. I was genuinely amazed at how quickly our dog warmed to and trusted Vicki. Vicki is a very experienced sitter (she has house sat all over the world) who is safe, sensible and really efficient to communicate with. If you are lucky enough to have Vicki looking after your pets and home you can relax while away and totally ... MORE
 
NICOLE (Mosman Park WA, Dec 2020 - 3 days)
We were very happy with Vicki. On our return our house was immaculate and our dog was very happy and relaxed.
 
LISA (Busselton WA, Nov 2020 - 10 Days)
Vicki is definitely a professional asking about everything she would need at our initial catch-up before the house sit and settling in with our skittish cats very quickly. Communication throughout the sit was fantastic and we returned to a clean and tidy house and very happy cats - in fact I think they prefer Vicki to us :) We will use Vicki again if dates align.
 
METTE (Melville WA, Oct 2020 - 2 weeks)
We have always been happy with our house sitters through Aussiehousitters but Vicki was stand out great. She communicated well throughout our trip and looked after our home, dog and chickens with extra care and attention. As mentioned Buddy developed a hot spot while we were away and her interaction with him, us and the vet was great and a big relief to us. Our vet also mentioned how impressed they were with Vicki. But the biggest proof was how happy and content Buddy looked on our return to ... MORE
 
CATHERINE (Yallingup Siding WA, Sep 2020 - 1 month 1 week)
Vicki was a marvelous house sitter. The cat fell in love with her. The care of the house was excellent. It was wonderful to return to a house better than I left it. She is a real professional and would not hesitate to recommend her.
 
ELIZABETH (Cottesloe WA, Jul 2020 - 3 weeks)
This was our first house/pet sitting with a 'stranger' and we totally lucked in with Vicki! Honestly can't recommend her highly enough. We returned home to a pristinely clean and tidy house, and two very happy well looked after doggies. Vicki's communication in the lead-up and during the sit was excellent and we left for our holiday completely content that our home and dogs were in good hands. Our dogs can be challenging on walks but Vicki took it in her stride and ensured they were ... MORE
 
BENN & ALESIA (Paihia North Island, Mar 2020 - 10 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
Vicki is a lovely lady and an awesome house sitter! My dog especially loved her and was very happy and content when I got home. The house looked lovely on my return. She's clearly a very experienced house sitter. I would have Vicki back in a heartbeat.
 
LESLIE (Matamata North Island, Feb 2020 - 4 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
I fully appreciated the care Vicki offered whilst I was away. Her messages and photos of my cats were lovely to receive. I arrived home to everything been taken good care of and cats looked well and happy. I have no hesitation to recommend Vicki for house and animal sitting.
 
SANDRA (Opotiki North Island, Jan 2020 - 16 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
Vicki was the best housesitter we have ever had. She is so nice to deal with and looked after our 2 dogs probably better than I do. She helped with one of my dogs greedy feeding issues beautifully. The house was immaculate when I got home and her communication was very good. Our flight was cancelled at the start of our holiday so we had to stay in our home 1 extra night and Vicki was very accommodating over that too. Definite 5 stars. Thanks so much Vicki for your help
 
JULIE (Hawthorn VIC, Dec 2019 - 3 weeks)
Vicki cared for our much loved Groodle 'Louie', house and gardens recently. We had not used a house sitter before, however felt instant ease upon meeting Vicki, Louie sat in between Vicki's legs on his first meet and greet, so this was a sign that Vicki was the perfect house sitter. Not to mention Vickis long list of available references, all referring to Vicki's professionalism, house care and happy pets. Vicki kept in touch while we were away with pictures of Louie, this was lovely to ... MORE
 
KYLIE (Palmyra WA, Dec 2019 - 8 days)
Vicki is a friendly and helpful person. She was an excellent house sitter who took great care of our little fur babies. Vicki watered our garden exactly as requested, sent us photos of the our happy dogs and left the house neat and spotless. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a house sitter.
 
DAVID (Beaconsfield WA, Nov 2019 - One week)
Vicki housesat for us in November 2019. Our dog Remi was very happy with her foster mum as Vicki took her for frequent much loved walks to the beach. Vicki works well with animals and we returned to a very contented dog. Vicki took excellent care of our home and gardens. Athough we had left instuctions for watering, Perth experienced extremely temperatures which made the original watering schedule obsolete. Vicki watered consistently and kept everything alive and flourishing. As I love my ... MORE
 
JUDY (Spearwood WA, Nov 2019 - 17 days)
Vicki was an exceptional house and cat sitter and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. Our house was left in a better state than we left it, and our elderly cat Mojo was relaxed and in great health. Vicki treated the job with utmost professionalism and I felt completely comfortable and confident leaving my home and cat in her care. Thank you Vicki!
 
JAYNE (East Fremantle WA, Sep 2019 - 2 weeks)
Vicki & her partner Mario did a fantastic job for us. Their friendly and totally professional approach during our overnight together before we set off on holiday allowed us to leave the house and our nervous/elderly cat Tuppence with complete confidence. (Tuppence, after giving them the expected cold shoulder treatment, gradually came round to accepting them and clearly appreciated their attentions.) Throughout our holiday, Vicki kept in contact and sent us regular helpful updates, ... MORE
 
DAVID & VIVIENNE (Ashton Keynes England, Jun 2019 - 1 week 4 days) From House Sitters UK
A wonderful housesit by Vicki, she cared for our home and French Bulldog as if they were hers, with much care and attention to detail, I recommend her highly. gerri
 
GERRI (My Lawley WA, Mar 2019 - 2 weeks)
No rating My wife and I were very pleased with Vicki's house, cat and dog sitting. Her communication throughout was speedy, thorough and professional either by email, Skype or WhatsApp. She arrived on the Sunday evening, as we flew very early on Monday morning, to get up to speed with the house and animals. Our Cat is very easy but our Cocker seemed to be very needy in the evenings, but Vicki was patient with him. We were regularly updated while away with text and photos and Vicki managed all ... MORE
FIONA (Lymm , Sep 2018) From House Sitters UK
No rating Vicki was fabulous and professional from start to finish. She was reliable, responsive and responsible, and understood the care of my cat was my upmost priority. My cat was happy and relaxed upon my return and Vicki provided me with several updates and photos while I was away. The house was immaculate - in fact cleaner and tidier than I left it. Vicki was friendly and easy to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Vicki and would happily have her back to house sit.
