54, Pet Resort Owner

Hey there, thanks for checking out our profile.
We are a non smoking, non drinking fit and active, professional couple in our early 50's. We currently own and run a "5 star pet resort" in North East Victoria, (please contact us for a link to our website) where we have looked after all types of cats and dogs for the last 7 years
We have recently sold the resort and from July this year will be semi-retiring and instead of returning to our home in Coolangatta we have made the decision to travel Australia and the world housesitting!
In our previous lives before the pet resort I was a Firefighter/Emergency Service Officer in various mines around Australia and my wife ran her own successful health food manufacturing business.on the Gold Coast
We have 3 grown up children, 1 living overseas in SanFrancisco, 1 in Queensland on the Sunshine Coast and 1 in Sydney. We also have family in South Australia and the NT.
Karen and I both grew up out in the bush and are very handy and competent around all sorts of animals, machinery and farm living but also love the convenience of apartments!
We are available starting from July this year 2023
If you are looking for a GOOD, RELIABLE, TRUSTWORTHY, HONEST and GENUINE couple with heaps of animal experience, then please send us a message.and we will get back to you.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Craig and Karen

PS - we have previous house sitting experience (both as sitters and as hosts) but it was over 5 1/2 years ago before we brought the pet resort so we do not have any reviews as the review system wasn't available back then.

Craig & Karen were the most amazing sitters & we can not speak more highly of them!! From the minute we met we connected & felt at ease!! Craig & Karen were excellent communicators and kept us up to date with how our pets were and what they had been up to. They went above & beyond caring for our pool / lawns / garden especially after days of heavy rain. Our home was spotless on our return and they even left us the most beautiful framed photo gift of our doggies together. Our Groodles, ... MORE
KERRYN (Bribie Island QLD, Dec 2023 - 2 weeks 2 nights)
Thanks for the lovely words Kerryn! Give the boys and Meeks a pat from us! ❤️🐶❤️🐈‍⬛❤️
Craig and Karen are the greatest! Both our home and our setter, Seamus were well looked after. After meeting them, we thought they would be professional and caring in their approach and we were not disappointed. Would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
JANICE (Bribie Island QLD, Oct 2023 - 1 month 3 weeks)

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
