As secondary school teachers we are available for most of the Victorian school holidays. Between the 2 of us we have had experience with dogs, cats, horses, guinea pigs, rabbits and goats so we welcome looking after your pets. We currently have 2 Moodles 4kgs each, small lap dogs who do not shed hair, that we would like to travel with us if possible, but not essential. We are happy to find sitters for them if needed. We have also had a grumpy cat but she recently passed away.

We have plenty of previous experience housesitting and find this a wonderful way to see Australia. Please read our reviews.

We have current police checks and very positive endorsements from previous sits.

We would also happily do Fri/Sat house sits within 1.5hrs of Melton.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Gary & Jenni did a fantastic job caring for our happy dog Toby & elusive cat Jesse & The Girls our 9 chickens. The communication was great before & during the sit, with photos & updates. The Ferry availability in this busy period meant we got to spend some time with Gary & Jenni before the sit and they are a lovely couple. We came home to a lovely cooked meal & stories from their adventures on Kangaroo Island. The house was beautifully clean, with vases of flowers from our garden. The ... MORE

Jenni and Gary did a house sit for us in September this year for a week. Communication was fantastic right from the very first contact. Our two dogs and cat were extremely well looked after, Jenni and Gary sent us regular photo updates which was lovely, they were all extremely happy on our return. Our house was left clean and tidy and everything was respected and well looked after. I would highly recommend Jenni & Gary and hope they can do more sits for us in the future.
WILLIAM (Deagon QLD, Sep 2023 - 1 week)
Gary and Jenni were the perfect housesitters! They looked after our dog, Ruby, like she was their own. Ruby had a brilliant time swimming and playing ball. Also cared for were our cows and chickens. Our flat was very well taken care of and left in an excellent condition, Gary and Jenni even washed the towels and sheets! We had spoken a couple of times before the sit and then they kept us updated with texts whilst we were away and we were even in touch after they left, so very good ... MORE
GRAEME & KATIE (Mogo NSW, Apr 2023 - 6 days)
Jenni and Gary were tremendous house sitters. They both had a very professional approach and we felt very comfortable leaving our pets with them. Their communication was excellent throughout our time away including lots of photos of our fur babies. All instructions given were clearly followed including medicating our pets and they they went out of their way with pooper-scooping the backyard. We were pleasantly surprised upon our return to a very clean house and an unexpected gift voucher to a ... MORE

Jen and Gary are great house sitters. They communicated well when necessary, kept the animals well fed and also sent a few photos of a very spoilt and cared for puppy. The house was lovely and clean to come home to, and the bedding had also been washed before they left. We would happily have Jen and Gary back anytime and highly recommend them for future house sits. :)

Jen and Gary were absolutely fabulous. My house was left spotless and they took incredible care of my pets. They went above and beyond when staying in my home. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for someone to watch your house and fur babies.

Thanks Tamara. We loved Curlewis and your house.
No rating Jenni and her daughter Jordi looked after our house and pets wonderfully. Jenni sent us regular text messages and photos of the pets while we were away, allowing us to relax and enjoy our holiday knowing the house, garden and pets were in good hands. The house was clean and tidy when we arrived home. I'd definitely recommend Jenni to anyone looking for a housesitter!
BELINDA (Brookfield QLD, Jan 2017 - 1 week)
No rating Jenni did a house sit for our family in July 2016 in Ballarat, looking after not only our house but our two dogs as well. Jenni was a pleasure to deal with taking great care of our house and pets. When we arrived back from our trip the house was clean and tidy, and both dogs were in great spirit. I know our dogs were very well looked after with frequent walks and playtime. Jenni provided updates via text, so we could relax and enjoy our time away. I have no hesitations recommending Jenni for ... MORE
