WE ARE A QUIET RELIABLE COUPLE WHO HAVE HAD LOTS OF EXPERIENCE AND HAVE LOTS OF REFERENCES. We are particularly keen on sits on the Gold Coast, Mornington Peninsula and in Melbourne. Because we have been sitting full-time for SIXTEEN YEARS, mostly on the Coast, we have done many house-sits, varying from a few days to several months. Many are repeat bookings. We have been Aussie members for that long too. We do not have pets of our own. We non-drinkers and non-smokers and will care for your homes, gardens and pets as though they were our own. We are committed to spending most of our time with your pets and find that almost all of the time there is at least one of us there. If your pets are used to individual care we offer that. We do our very best to keep them to their usual routines as much as possible. We come from a background in caring fields (aged care and disability) and have excellent references. Also we managed some holiday apartments for several years. We had our own holiday farm for several years where we catered for visiting groups and kept numerous poultry, horses, sheep, goats, dogs and a pig. We are equally content in rural and in city environments. We have excellent references and also can arrange for you to speak with owners from previous sits. We are currently on the Gold Coast and are happy to come to meet you. We have a number of sits booked but there are still a few gaps in our schedule. We are particularly hoping to sit on the Gold Coast in the coming year and travel down to the Mornington Peninsula/ Melbourne as well. Please discuss your needs with us. A little bit about our sitting experience........ We went across to South Australia in August 2007 and our first sit was for a couple of months at a 40 acre property at Middleton where we cared for 4 angora rabbits, a couple of sheep, a couple of alpacas and a special ginger cat called Milko. He slept on our beds and woke me every morning at dawn for breakfast. Their dog was Thomas, a border collie and he slept in our room, played ball all day long and joined Milko for breakfast while I had my morning coffee. Next we cared for two little Jack Russells, Sophie and Trixie who had the run of the house and slept on our beds, because they were used to doing that with their owners. They were walked every day and given lots of special time. Their owner works from home so they chose us because they knew we were prepared to spend lots of quality time with their babies. In Adelaide we had a labrador, Jazz and a labradoodle, Delta and a beautiful black cat called Belle. They spent all day with us in the house, or out in the yard when we were out there, and had made the sit a pleasure. We took them to the local pooch park as often as we could (most days) and they enjoyed running around with the other dogs and also the social experience. We left there on 26th. Then we did a 4 day sit minding 2 indoor cats (Mac and Zac) and 2 outside dogs (Hamish and Maggy) near the beach at Aldinga. From the 30th January were sitting in Salisbury where we are caring for a miniature foxie (Digger), a ginger cat (Leo) and a 4 month old black kitten (Benny). Then from 21st to 28th we were at Glenalta minding one little dog called Max and feeding all of the wild life the owners always feed (about 100 wild birds, ducks etc. twice a day and the possums get fruit cut up for them every night) Then we went to a 4 acre property just out of Mount Gambier. There we were caring for 3 dogs (a bull mastiff called duke, a boxer called Bess and a jack russell called Allie) 2 cats, 2 sheep, fish, chooks, ducks and peacocks. We stayed there from 28th February until 29th March. We then travelled for 4 days up to Queensland where we minded a staffy called Bronson and a cat called Muffin from 2nd April for ten days in Peregian springs. We have been mainly in Queensland since then doing a large number of sits, some very short and some much longer. These include in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. We have also done sitting in NSW. We have done many repeat bookings. If we sound as though we might suit your needs then it'd be good to communicate with you. Hopefully our availability will match your requirements. We answer all inquiries as promptly as possible. Please ask us anything you would like to know. Particularly keen to discuss both longer and shorter sits on the Gold Coast, inner city Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula. Hoping to hear from you soon.

Cheryl & Warren were wonderful sitters. We returned home to find our house in the same condition as we left it - clean and tidy. Our yard/garden was tidy and pot plants all well cared for and watered. They kindly left us some bread,milk and eggs in case we needed a snack when we returned home. Our elderly Jack Russell Max was happy, clean, had been walked daily, and was well cared for. Communication with Cheryl was superb. We would definitely ask Cheryl and Warren to house sit again and would ... MORE

Sincerely thanks. We loved our time in your beautiful home and Max was a joy. We’d come again without hesitation.
Lovely couple. Our dog was happy and well cared for. Our home was spotless on our return. Highly recommended.
RUSSELL (Helensvale QLD, Jan 2024 - 1 week 5 nights)
Cheryl and Warren were delightful to look after my home and my dog Alfie. The house was immaculate when I returned home with everything cleaned, washed linen and very tidy. Alfie was well looked after and happy. I would highly recommend this couple for your house sitting. Will definitely add them to my list of sitters for future. Thank you Cheryl and Warren.

ANNA (Helensvale QLD, Oct 2023 - 1 week 1 night)
It was an absolute pleasure to have Warwick and Cheryl house sit for us. We have two dogs one of which is elderly and they really took such great care of them and our goldfish. We returned home after a long flight to two happy dogs and a very clean house. I would highly recommend them and would definitely have them sit for us again. Thanks Cheryl and Warwick
RACHEL (Carrara QLD, Jun 2023 - 4 weeks)
Thanks Rachel We very much enjoyed our time in your lovely home and Harry and Charlie were a delight to be with We would be honoured to return another time
Late to post but we had Cheryl and Warwick sit for our two Samoyed for 6 weeks and they were an absolute delight. We have one 7 year old stateswomen and a scrappy 2 year old pup and they cared and loved them so wonderfully through out our time away. Not only this but they cared and loved for our home. I can not recommend Cheryl and Warwick enough to any prospective sittees, anyone would be lucky to have them.
LAURA (Arundel QLD, May 2023 - 6 weeks)

I have no hesitation in recommending Cheryl and Warwick as house and pet sitters. They are a friendly, kind and generous couple who will take care of your home and pets as if they were their own. I can confirm that all of the wonderful reviews on their site are true! Our dog was so well looked after that I'm sure she missed them after we came home, our house was immaculate, and fresh milk and other goodies were in our fridge for our arrival home which was so unexpected and appreciated! We were ... MORE

Thanks Jan Tessa was a delight and your home a pleasure to be in We would love to come back another time
Cheryl and Warwick are exceptional housesitters on every level. They have cared for our house and our little dog Charlie, on a number of occasions. Each time we came home to a happy Charlie, a clean house and some basic supplies in the fridge. They are also prompt communicators. We hope they are available the next time we need their services.
GAIL (mudgeeraba QLD, Aug 2022 - 2.5 months)
Many thanks Gail
Couldn't have been more impressed! From the moment we met Cheryl and Warwick we felt comfortable that they would do a great job, they were warm and friendly, and asked all the right questions to put our minds at ease that our house and elderly dogs would be well looked after (especially since it was a last minute arrangement!). We got regular updates while away and came home to a super clean house and very content dogs. I would highly recommend them and hope that they will sit for us ... MORE

We had Cheryl and Warwick recently pet sit for us and they were fantastic. They were more than happy to come meet myself and big dog before the sit which was great and straight away i got a good vibe from them, a lovely kind couple. Communication was fast and excellent, we got a few photo updates during the sit, it was great to have that feeling our dog was being well looked after. We came home to a happy dog and very clean house thank you so much Cheryl and Warwick we highly recommend you ... MORE

Thank you Rachel for your lovely review Big dog was a pleasure to be with and you have a lovely relaxing home :)
I would like to say a big thank you to Cheryl and Warick for looking after our home and garden for the 3 weeks we were away. Such lovely people and nothing was to much leading up to the house sitting. It was wonderful to come back to such a lovely tidy and clean home, perfect house sitters. I would 100% recommend Cheryl and Warick to look after your home. We will most certainly ask again if we get the opportunity to go away again. Thank you so much
CHERIE (Mudgeeraba QLD, Jun 2021 - 3 weeks)
Cheryl and Warwick looked after our house and two cats for five days. When we returned we found the house cleaner and tidier than when we left. The two cats were very content and I suspect that they had recieved loads of loving care. I can highly recomend Cheryl and Warwick and we will certainly ask them again the next time we go away.
BRIAN (Nerang QLD, Jun 2020 - 5 days)
We were so impressed with Cheryl and Warwick that we have asked them to house sit again for us. They are good-natured and have a practical approach to house sitting. Our house was immaculate and most importantly our 3 cats were happy and healthy. They had no issues catering to the different personalities of our 3 cats. You can have peace of mind if Cheryl and Warwick are house sitting for you. Would highly recommend.
KYM (Robina QLD, Nov 2019 - 2 weeks)
The communication with Cheryl and Warrick was so easy and they were very obliging with organising all the details. I found them to be a lovely , genuine couple and had no worries about leaving them in charge of my pets and home. On my return the cats all looked very happy and healthy and my home was immaculate. I would definitely hope to have them as house sitters next time I go away.
NICOLE (Surfers Paradise QLD, Oct 2019 - 1 week)

PAULA (MOLENDINAR QLD, May 2019 - 4 weeks)
We could not imagine better housesitters than these lovely people. They were fantastic - so friendly, approachable and responsible. The house was immaculate when we arrived home and we never had a minute of anxiety in any way while we were away. We will definitely be very happy to ask them again.

CHARIS (Pacific Pines QLD, Feb 2019)
As a first timer I was very nervous to have strangers live in my house and care for our fur child (puppy) for a whole month! I chose Warwick and Cheryl because I could meet them beforehand... from the moment I met them I was relaxed and comfortable they would be fine! Fine is an understatement! They looked after our house and cared for our dog like she was their own! Looked after our chooks and my plants that needed water! Having a blackout for 48hrs with bad storms didn't phase them either! ... MORE

MIA (Gold Coast 4210 QLD, Nov 2018 - 1 week 1 day)
This is the first time I have used Aussie Housesitters so was unsure what to expect. Cheryl and Warwick certainly exceeded my expectations. The house was spick and span when I got back, my cats were in fine fettle and the garden was well looked after. I would certainly recommend them for your house sitting and would have no hesitation in using them again when going away.

No rating Warwick and Cheryl are a delightful, friendly, non-smoking couple whom we instantly felt comfortable with. Our home and pets were well looked after.

We actually changed the dates of our holiday so we could get them back ! We came back from holidays and our pets are happy and our house has been left so clean and sparkling. We hope to have them come visit again.
