Jeanette was so lovely. We met with her the week before we went away to go through everything, and we immediately felt comfortable. We were updated with photos of our babies (cats) while we were away, and came home to a beautifully clean house. We'd have Jeanette back in a heartbeat.
JENNA (Chermside West QLD, Sep 2022 - 2 weeks)
Communication with Jeanette both prior and during this house sit was excellent. She managed our pets well, including administering medication and our house was left as it was when we left for our holiday. Thank you!
JENNY (Landers Shoot QLD, Mar 2024 - 1 week 3 nights)
Jeanette (Jan) did a wonderful job looking after our dog and our house while we were away. We got updates and photos of Pip which was great. Our house was spotless and very tidy when we got back. Jeanette had also tried to revive our collection of neglected pot plants with a fair degree of success! Highly recommend Jeanette, she is a homebody who will look after your pets and house with great care, she is very quick to respond to communication too.
ROSE (St Lucia QLD, Feb 2024 - 2 weeks 5 nights)
We are grateful to Jeanette for the 2 months she spent looking after Evie and our home. Nothing was too much trouble for her - she mailed a couple of items to us that we left behind, made sure tradesperson completed a good job and kept up the lawn maintenance on our large yard during trying weather over Xmas and New Year. Evie absolutely loves the day bed Jeanette created for her. Jeanette is a very independent, intelligent, fit, creative soul who has a huge love and knowledge of animals. We ... MORE
JANICE (Mount Warren Park QLD, Nov 2023 - 2 months)
Jeanette took great care of our 3 fur babies - Labrador, cavoodle and Ragdoll cat. The house was clean and exactly how we left it! Communication via text and photos. Highly recommend Jeanette as a house sitter.
RHIANNON (Grange QLD, Sep 2022 - 1 week 4 days)
Jeanette did a great job looking after our cats and bird. All were happy when we arrived back. The house and grounds were well looked after. Jeanette communicated with us while we were away, sending photos every 3 or 4 days.
PETER (Bracken Ridge QLD, Sep 2022 - 13 Days)

MAREA (Casino NSW, Mar 2022 - 12 days)
Marea & Jim, lovely friendly, welcoming people, along with Ella & Cassie, who may be small , but have large personalities, looking forward to seeing you all again soon, Jeanette
Jeanette may be suitable for some sits where the house owner doesn't have time to get to know her. She asked to come early, knowing there would be an overlap of her arrival and our departure. She was duly accommodated and provided everything she asked for. She has no hesitation in using other people's tools/equipment or looking through private areas of the house / cupboards. Wanting to turn our property into a fortress with windows covered with towels and insisting that the driveway gates be ... MORE
KERRI (Macleay Island QLD, Jan 2022)
House security, NONE, unlocked doors at night, you dont have to lock doors!, I barricaded my door at night from being opened, no lock!. Curtains in none, towel to suffice. Tools, mower used for lawn, drill/ saw used, go ahead I was told help yourself. Gate always left open as dog had ... MORE
Jeanette was a fantastic sitter for our time away. Pets well loved, house immaculate on return, pots and our garden watered and cared for and communication throughout our time away. We have no hesitation welcoming Jeanette back or recommending her.
ANNA (Brookfield QLD, Jan 2022 - 1 week 3 days)
Jeanette sent photos everyday to reassure us all was okay at home. Harvey was obviously well cared for and walked regularly, despite bad weather conditions. Our home was spotless when we returned which was lovely. Thanks Jeanette for looking after our very clingy boy so well.
PAULA (Corinda QLD, Nov 2021 - 2 1/2 weeks)
I loved being at Paula & Gary's home, & looking after Harvey was fun. Lovely garden, such a comfortable & homely home, I would go back if needed.
Jeanette looked after our home and two burmese kittens very well. She sent us lots of great photos of our fur babies each week. She looked after our pool and gardens well too. She was flexible re COVID lockdowns etc. We would recommend her for her care during the sit.
COLLENE (Camp Hill QLD, Jul 2021 - 7 weeks)
That was quick Collene, thank you, Jeanette
Jeanette looked after our home and garden extremely well for the six weeks we were away. Came home to clean and tidy home (all linen washed ) and well maintained bushy garden. Frequent messages kept us updated.
GARRY AND CHRISTINE (Narangba QLD, May 2021 - 6 weeks)
Lovely peaceful property, beautiful garden, Gary & Chris always great communicators also sent on delayed mail for me, thank you.
Jeanette looked after our babies and home for two weeks. Throughout the two weeks Jeanette sent us photos regularly, fixed problems that arose without hassling us and nurtured my plants inside and out. Upon return to our home it was absolutely spotless and our animals content and happy.
MARK & KAY (Gulmarrad NSW, Apr 2021 - 2 weeks)
Jeanette was a great house sitter who looked after our beautiful 13 year old dog, Molly so well. She mowed our grass which we did not expect her to do. We were really happy with everything and her love and care that she gave to Molly and our other animals was exceptional.
JANE (Kurrajong NSW, Feb 2021 - 10 days)
We were very pleased with Jeanette's care of our doggies and house. It was also nice getting to know her before we left on our holiday. Highly recommend.
NERIDA (Ballarat VIC, Mar 2020 - 1 week 1 day)
Jeanette was a great house sitter and was so caring towards our animals, particularly our little dog Rosie. Jeanette kept us updated on our animals and sent us photos whilst we were away. The house was clean and tidy when we got home. Thank you Jeanette for a great housesit.
ALLY (Blackheath NSW, Jul 2019 - 11 days)
No rating Jeanette cared for our home, garden, pool & 2 very active toy poodles for 5 weeks in St Ives. From the outset, her initial messages indicated to me that Jeanette was a caring, kind person - putting my mind totally at ease. This was our 1st house sit & we had never left our "fur babies" for more than 2 days. Once we met Jeanette in person, I knew they would be in the best of hands. One of our poodles has anxiety issues and not good with strangers. Jeanette took to him immediately and for ... MORE
LYNNE (St Ives NSW, Aug 2018)
No rating Janette recently house and cat sat for us. She loved the tranquillity of our place, and responded by taking very good care of our cats, learning all their foibles. The house she was very conscientious about looking after. Not only that, but she did the lawns and many other tasks well and truly above the call of duty. Janette is a very kind person who has a strong sense of integrity. We would highly recommend her and would love her to return to us one day.
ELIZABETH (Faulconbridge NSW, Aug 2018 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Janette has just done a house sit for us at very short notice. We were very happy with the outcome, she sent us photos and updates of our did Brodie regularly and on our return we found a very happy little dog and a wonderfully clean home. She was a delightful person and would highly recommend her to look after your home and pets.
ANNE (Nelson Bay NSW, May 2018 - 2 weeks 3 days)
No rating I would strongly recommend Janette as a knowledgeable and experienced sitter. My Pomeranian 'willow' loved her and i know she was very well cared for while I was on holiday. Janette is a big personality and is super capable. She is caring and responsible. She went the extra mile during the sit, bringing our sheep up to the barn each night in case one lambed so they would be safe from foxes. Janette also completed jobs around the house, including gardening and was always willing to help and ... MORE
ANDREW (Llandilo NSW, Mar 2018 - 2 months)
No rating Janette is a very enthusiastic and self sufficient sitter. She took excellent care of our animals through an extremely hot period and left the garden in better shape than she found it.
SARAH (Cessnock NSW, Dec 2017 - 3 weeks)
No rating Jeanette is a very kind person that looked after our house & pets. Would recommend her to anyone
NATALIE (Meadow Flat NSW, Apr 2017 - 2 months)
No rating Janette looked after our very busy blue heeler and our elderly cat, managing medications, exercise and food likes magnificently. She went above and beyond to leave our home much tidier than we left it. It was lovely to be able to go abroad knowing everything was in her capable hands.
NICHOLA (Silverdale NSW, Mar 2017)
No rating Jeanette spent 9 weeks at our home, house sitting 2 lively dogs and 6 chooks. She did a wonderful job- the dogs were so healthy and happy- had been walked every day and obviously had been lavished with affection; even the chooks had been spoilt with love and attention. The garden,indoor plants,verandah and chook pen looked awesome with no casualties in spite of unusually scorching summer temperatures! Lastly it was wonderful to walk back into a spotlessly clean home. Jeanette comes with our ... MORE
LORRAINE (Bonny Hills NSW, Dec 2016 - 2 months 1 week)
No rating Jeanette Coleman housesat for me in Dubbo NSW for about 5 weeks in October-November 2016. She looked after my Jack Russell and 2 chooks as well as a large yard. She is a lady of very forthright views in particular with regards to animal management. For example she used her own initiative to make changes to my chook yard to provide additional shade for them during hot weather.
SUE (Dubbo NSW, Oct 2016 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating Many thanks to Jeanette who looked after our house and 4 little dogs while we were in Europe. It was nice to have peace of mind knowing that our little dogs were well looked after while we were away.
KEITH AND JENNY (Salamander Bay NSW, Jul 2016 - 4 weeks)
No rating We were very happy with Jeanette. She took a genuine interest in our pets and looked after the house and garden very well. We arrived home to a cosy log fire, clean house and contented animals..
MARLENE (Castle Hill NSW, Apr 2016 - 2 weeks)
No rating Jeanette was our housesitter for 9 weeks and did a wonderful job caring for our cats in a safe stimulating environment that clearly demonstrated her love for animals. We appreciated Jeanette's reliability and communicability before and during our holiday which significantly reduced our anxiety about leaving home. We will ask Jan to house sit again if we have the opportunity to travel in the future.
GLENN (Lake Albert / Wagga Wagga, NSW, Jul 2015 - 2 months 2 weeks)
No rating Jeanette is first and foremost an enthusiastic and dedicated animal lover. I returned home after nearly a month away to find a happy healthy cat, and a much needed tidy up in my garden. Jeanette kept me up to date regularly with emails and photos of my pet and his recent antics. To have peace of mind while so far away is invaluable. I would recommend Jeanette Coleman to all dedicated animal/ garden lovers.
