Helping to give homeowners peace of mind holidays

62, Artist

66, Retired

Having travelled extensively, we have house, farm and boat sat around the world for years. This has included large and small animal care, from horses to mice and almost everything in-between. Both of us are animal lovers and are experienced horse riders and sailors and my husband, a 'green-fingered' gardener.

We intend travelling up / down the eastern side of Australia from Melbourne to northern QLD and back over the next few years.

Our time, therefore, is highly flexible and we are prepared to house / farm / equine establishment /pet /livestock sit for both short and long stays.

We are house proud and you can be assured that we will care for your home, garden and pets / horses or other livestock accordingly. We are more than happy to lunge your horses or groom them and / or your dog / cat etc. while you are away as well as administer medicines etc if needed, take them on walks and of course, provide lots of love, Plus water your garden or indoor plants, ensuring they are still flourishing on your return.

We have a long list of references (all readily contactable) on request if required.

We don't have enough words to thank Robin and Kevin. I've arrived home to a lovely home, well tended gardens and most importantly our fur babies looking better than we left them. Our comms with them were great and included photos where possible. To give an indication of our happiness with their great work, we will stay in touch and host them for a stay with us anytime they're in the area. Happy to provide anyone with a personal reference if needed. You both rock! Gravel and Natalie, Felix, ... MORE

Hi there. Sorry for he delayed reply. Thanks so much we loved caring for your home and fur family and will certainly stay in touch.
Robyn & Kevin were excellent house sitters. We have sheep goats alpacas chickens & guinea fowls. They handled all the problems that arose including medicating three old sheep every day. Not the easiest house sit but turned out really well. We would definitely recommend them to future hosts.
 
WARREN (Jamberoo NSW, Jan 2024 - 1 month 1 week)
Very nice and competent house sitters, Robin provided good updates and allowed a stressless holiday away from our pets, house was very clean upon return as well.
 
MIKE (Forestdale QLD, Jan 2024 - 2 weeks 4 nights)
We highly recommend Robin & Kevin as pet/house sitters. Robin gave us frequent updates about our beloved furbaby, Belle while we were away. So much so I'm sure she's missing them! Thankfully we returned home after 6 weeks abroad to a neat and tidy house. We can't thank them enough and a bonus we will stay in touch with our new friends too!
 
SUELLEN (Rainbow Beach QLD, Nov 2023 - 1 month 2 weeks)
We came home to very happy Cat well done Robin and Kevin we can recommend you Thanks James & Mary-Ann
 
JAMES (Fletcher QLD, Oct 2023 - 3 weeks)
Caring for Blade was easy and he responded well. A lovely purring cat that loved cuddles. All up an enjoyable sit in an easy to care for house in a lovely (almost) isolated location with lovely valley views.
Robyn & Kevin are complete gems. The house can take care of itself but our two pups are our babies and we were very nervous about leaving them with strangers. Robyn & Kevin were totally happy to do whatever was required to help our dogs adjust to us being away and sent us regular pics of happy puppies. There was genuine love and dedication to our dog’s well being and we came home to happy, healthy and unstressed pets. We wouldn’t hesitate to have Robyn & Kevin back in the future.
 
TANYA (Griffin QLD, Oct 2023 - 4 weeks)
I am definitely not one to leave a bad review, but I’m afraid the experience I had with Robin and her partner was not great. There was basically no communication while I was away so assumed everything was going well. I arrived home and opened the door to the house smelling strongly of cigarettes (which I was able to air out after a few days) but the worst part was there was a very strong Smokey / air freshener type smell in my bathroom. I contacted Robin a few days after I got back hoping the ... MORE
 
MATTHEW (Petrie QLD, Sep 2023 - 4 nights)
We apologise (again), for the problems you encountered on your return home. Apologies also, for your not being able to contact us readily since the sit (we have been / are off-grid). FYI : It might be an idea to warn future sitters that your dog chews anything left within reach (he ruined an ... MORE
Robin and Kevin were delightful sitters, unfortunately we had to cut our overseas holiday short due to a death in the family. They were very understanding. Our dog Hardie absolutely adored Kevin; I think she would have happily gone with them. Our home was looked after and property respected, I’d happily invite Robyn and Kevin again and hope to keep in touch.

Robin and Kevin looked after our home and puppy Jay like it was their own. Jay warmed to them and enjoyed their company. I think he was a bit sad when we came home!
 
EMMA (Grange QLD, Jul 2023 - 10 days)
Thanks Emma, We so enjoyed Jay's company.
Thanks for the sit all went well!

Robin and Kevin took on a big task; looking after the house, the dogs, the chooks, a large thirsty garden and a swimming pool, They did a magnificent job and stayed in touch with us while we were travelling (not easy). However, we suspect that they may have slightly over-indulged our two dogs. The dogs have demanded their return. Of course, Robin and Kevin can come back any time.
 
MALCOLM (Whitfield QLD, Oct 2022 - Two weeks)
We are very grateful that we chose Robyn and Kevin to sit our house for 3 months Our chooks and the chook pen was very clean and tidy Our house and gardens were as we left them Just the perfect couple to take care of your home and this allows you to enjoy your holiday away from home Thanks Robyn and Kevin
 
MADELENE (Bluewater QLD, Aug 2022 - 3 months)
Perfect house sitters Lovely couple and Lucy was so well looked after by them Can't wait for the next house sit by them 10/10
 
CHARLIE (Lismore Heights NSW, Jun 2022 - 1 month 2 weeks)
Robin and Kevin did an amazing job looking after our home and our two very demanding Jack Russells. We would have them back anytime. They have given us more confidence to go away on a holiday and leave our house and our well loved Jacks in the care of these wonderful house sitters .
 
LARYSA (Hervey Bay QLD, May 2021 - 2 nights)
Caring for Larysa and Dave's doggy duo was fun. Walks on the beach, playing 'catch the bone' and other doggy games, kept us well entertained and made for a very enjoyable housesit.
Our babies were so happy when we got home and that's thanks to you both house was well looked after aswell
 
MYKAELA (Algester QLD, Apr 2021 - 1 week)
No rating Great sitters, left our house and pets the way they found them. very pleased.
BRYAN & SUSIE (South Grafton NSW, Apr 2021 - 3 weeks)
Bryan and Susie, left us with a detailed list of their cat's needs making our sit at their delightful home, within easy walking distance of town and bus routes etc, a breeze.
Robin and Kevin were amazing Housesitter's and even though they filled in for us last minute we couldn't have asked for better. They looked after the farm perfectly and even weeded our garden. They followed all instructions and managed to keep on top of a long list of animals to feed. They even won over the cat who normally hates strangers. I can happily recommend them for any sits big or small and we will hopefully have them back again sometime.
 
ISABELLE (Aberdeen NSW, Feb 2020 - 5 days)
To whom it may concern. Robin and Kevin house sat for us for two weeks in February 2020. They looked after our two companion dogs, three sheep dogs, house and garden. We found Robin and Kevin to be excellent house sitters; they really connected with our dogs and the dogs to them. They were very comfortable being in a remote rural location and it was so nice to come home to a well watered garden. Kevin even did some re-potting and weeding jobs I hadn't got around to. During our time away ... MORE
 
WENDY (Orange NSW, Jan 2020 - 2 weeks)
Robin and Kevin were nothing less than amazing!! They made being away from home and my babies so easy. The care they provided my pets was perfect. They followed my instructions with feeding, walks and medication. They showed my babies so much love and attention I think (I know) my animals miss them!! The house was just as I left it. I came home and was greeted by my babies and a thorough handover from Robin and Kevin and nothing out of place. I received pictures daily as per my request and in ... MORE

Safe house!

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