We are a retired, fit husband and wife team who have been
house-sitting in Australia and overseas since 2010.
We are now back in Australia and available to take great care of your home and pets while you enjoy a care free break. Love something a bit out of the ordinary.
We own property near Crescent Head on the mid north coast of NSW and this is where we are based. We live on stand alone solar and water tanks.
We are fit, reliable and responsible. We both love animals (large and small),and have owned dogs, cats, donkeys and poultry.Keith is a skilled handyman and can cope with any emergencies and also perform maintenance work if required. Used to pumps etc and rural properties. We love sits that are a bit out of the ordinary and have experience in large rural properties.

We have police checks and lots of references. Here a a few from another site we are members of.
We would prefer coastal properties during the summer months. Winter in Jindabyne would be fantastic!!!!
We have cared for a lot of old and sick pets and due to past experiences we now charge $10 a day for pets which need major medications. Although we are more than happy to do this and cope well, there is always a risk of injury.
We are planning a trip to Tassie after August 2024 for the latter part of the year. So if you have a unique property in Tassie that needs looking after with a pet or two, get in touch.
Looking forward to 2024.

Keith and Mog house sat for us for the whole of January and February this year (2015). They were thoroughly reliable, great with the animals, and when we arrived back the house was absolutely spotless. They kept in close contact with us while we were away and answered emails very promptly. They are a lovely couple who we would not hesitate to recommend.

Keith and Mog came to look after our Basset Hound Lola and our 3 cats, hens and rabbit. They were so easy to deal with from beginning to end and it made our first foray into HouseSitters a very reassuring experience. We would recommend them to anyone. Communication was brilliant and Lola our dog loved them. We returned home to one very happy Lola who had clearly had a lovely time. Thank you so much to both of you!

Fantastic couple with plenty of experience in house/pet sitting. My reserved with the strangers cat was lying on Mog's laps after a few hours and aloof dog was spoiled with strokes already the same evening they arrived. House and pets fully looked after. Couldn't wish for anyone better than these two lovely people as my first house/pet sitters. Thank you guys once again.

Keith and Mog are lovely, easy going, caring people. They were to look after my elderly dog who unfortunately met with an accident before they arrived. They were prepared to collect her from the vet, care for her if needs be. My dog unfortunately did not make it, but they stayed in my house anyway. They have been doing this for a while, so quite used to finding their way around and making themselves at home. In saying that, when I returned I almost did not know that 2 people had been staying here. The place was clean, everything washed, etc. I would certainly recommend them as house sitters, and would certainly use them again.

Keith and Mog we highly recommend as house/pet sitters. They are a lovely friendly outgoing Australian couple. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Our three dogs were very well looked after ( the dogs are very demanding!) and the house was left in perfect condition.
We were welcomed home with a delightful meal prepared by Mog.

Keith and Mog did a really wonderful job of looking after our three cats - one very old and ailing and two brand new kittens who had not yet bonded with each other. For three and a half weeks, Mog and Keith administered the daily medications, lots of care, attention and play. When we returned, we found the old cat was in perfect health and the two were kittens palying beautifully. I really valued the way Mog and Keith would send short updates and we didn't have to worry about anything at all. The house was well looked after and I think they also enjoyed the area.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in asking them back again.

Mog and Keith were a godsend for us! We went overseas for six weeks and I was very worried about leaving our 2 adorable dogs and 2 gorgeous cats, all with special needs, with strangers. Mog and Keith are not strangers though. They are really lovely relaxed trustworthy people who you feel you have known for ages. They immediatly put us at ease and we had lots of reports from friends regarding how wonderful they were caring for the pets. We could not be happier with the way they looked after our ... MORE

Margaret and Keith basically saved our holiday contacting us 24 hrs before us having to leave home. The housesit started with some difficulties but due to their confidence and experience they worked through it all with no drama and did a wonderful job keeping our puppies happy and chooks and Guinea were well looked after too. Thank you!
IEVA (St Albans NSW, Jan 2024 - 5 nights)
If you want perfect sitters who will love your pets, plants and house as if they were their own then Margaret & Keith are it! They left our house spotless and even helped us with a number of things. They are a friendly, knowledgeable, generous & easy-going couple which allows you to really relax when away knowing everything is safe & sound. We really appreciated having Margaret & Keith as house sitters and even our kids loved them and their company too!
JESSICA (Lake Burrendong NSW, Nov 2023 - 2 weeks 1 night)
Mog and Keith looked after our property and pets for 2 weeks in June 2023. Lovely couple who answered all questions before the sit and were lovely to deal with. House was immaculate on return and pets (cat and chooks) were happy. They regularly sent updates with photos of the cat :-) Thoroughly recommend. Thank you for looking after our property.
FIONA (Sandy Beach NSW, May 2023 - 2 weeks)
We had to find a house/pet sitter last minute 2 days before our holiday due to our family member no longer being able to take him, and we heard from Margaret & Keith within a few hours of listing our request. We were impressed with their lengthy experience and were happy to leave our home and dog in their very capable hands. Rixi took to them straight away upon meeting them, further putting my mind at ease. We had updates the first night and last morning of their stay, as we were in ... MORE
JENNA (Port Macquarie NSW, Feb 2023 - 6 days)
Margaret and Keith were fantastic house sitters. Very experienced and provided us with assurance that our home and animals were all well cared for. The house was immaculate when we got home and our dogs miss them already! Communication was proactive and just enough so we felt we could really enjoy our time away. Thanks to you both, 'til next time.
SALLY AND PAUL (Googong NSW, Jul 2022 - 4 weeks)
Margaret and Keith were just what their profile said - fantastic house-sitters. They communicated welland left the house very tidy. I think Felix was sorry to see them go.
KAREN (Eskdale VIC, May 2022 - 4 weeks)
Came home after 2 weeks to a house as spotlessly clean as we had left it. It was easy to see our dog had been fed, groomed, exercised and loved. Mog and Keith did a wonderful job. Great contact and photo updates as well. Could not have been more pleased. Thanks guys!
IAN (Fingal Bay NSW, Mar 2022 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Margaret and Keith took great care of our house and garden whilst we were away. It was a pleasure to come home to our well cared for home. They were also very easy to deal with and kept us informed during the sit. We hope they enjoyed the fish they caught during this time.
CAROLEEN (Tuross Head NSW, Feb 2022 - 2 weeks 3 days)
Mog and Keith were so lovely! So chilled and sent us daily cute photos of our pets! We loved having themstay, they left the place so clean and the pets were so happy :)
MEGAN (Jindabyne NSW, Jan 2022 - 1 week)
Margaret and Kieth were lovely. Our first sit got cut due to covid however we rearranged for November this year. Their communication was excellent throughout including whilst on the sit. I received updates on our precious kittie. Everything was left super clean and tidy. Our kittie Smokey was very happy and well looked after when we got home. I just feel so bad the weather was not the best for them. Would highly recommend.
SONIA (Arakoon NSW, Aug 2021 - 1 weeks 1 day)
No rating Mog and Keith done a great job looking after our home and animals while we were away. We were also greatful that they were so accommodating when our flights were changed unexpectedly. Would recommend this lovely couple to look after your place
SUSAN (Ewingar NSW, Apr 2021 - 1 week 2 days)
Margaret and Keith recently looked after our property and two spoiled pooches and one cat. Their communication was great and it was great to be able to get away for a week with no worries about what was happening at home. The animals seemed to like their company and our pots and gardens were carefully watered. I would highly recommend Margaret and Keith.
LISE (Lovedale NSW, Oct 2020 - 6 days)
Mog and Keith were great hose sitters. They cared for my many birds and two small dogs .. When I returned home all was well and house clean and tidy .. Will definately have them back again to house sit for me Thanks Mog and Keith
ROSS (Port Macquarie NSW, Aug 2020 - 5 nights)
This was my first time engaging with house sitters and Marg & Keith were a great introduction for me, being the ideal sitters. Their care of my dog and 2 kittens was exemplary. Would definitely recommend them and would definitely engage with them again.
ROSANNA (The Hill NSW, Mar 2020 - 1 week 1 day)
Margaret and Keith were wonderful Housesitter's. We had to come home 1 week early due to the NSW south coast bushfires, and Margaret and Keith were very accomodating about it. The house and garden were well looked after, as were our animals. Thanks for taking care of our home for us.
MICK (Healesville VIC, Dec 2019 - 2 weeks)
Great will hopefully get these guys again...
JAMES (Mount Eliza VIC, Dec 2019 - 5 days)
Mogs and Keith handled everything without any fuss. and took great care of the place. Both cats gave them two paws up. Would have liked at least one update while I was away. Minor point.
JIM (East Gosford NSW, Jul 2019 - 4 weeks)
Mog and Keith were great folks and really easy to deal with. Norfolk Island throws up some small challenges in regards to limited flights, and fitting those around the sit - but these two breezed in and out with no dramas whatsoever. Bronte, my dog, continues to go into the bedroom in which they stayed, and have a look around for them - so she also recommends them very highly!! Thanks Mog and Keith. It was lovely to meet you and great to know you were here looking after my girl whilst I was ... MORE
MEL (Norfolk Island NSW, May 2019 - 2 weeks)
Margaret and Keith are obviously experienced sitters. We felt we could easily trust them to sit on first meeting them. They did everything we asked and the pool was sparkling on the day we returned even though they had a major storm the night before. Can recommend Margaret and Keith for a sit, but they may be hard to get as their schedule fills up quickly.
KEN AND JEANETTE (Wauchope NSW, Feb 2019 - 2 weeks)
Mog and Keith did a great job house sitting for us! Our two spoilt doggies seemed very content and well looked after. Our home was beautifully tidy and clean when we got back. We would highly recommend Mog and Keith. They are very welcome back!
ZARA (Jindabyne NSW, Feb 2019 - 1 week)
Mog and Keith looked after our 1 yo cat, Teddy for a week in Jan 2019. They were so warm and friendly, it felt like we were meeting old friends again. Teddy loved them and they left the house spotless. Would highly recommend. Thanks!!
JESS (Dover Heights NSW, Jan 2019 - 5 days)
Meg and Keith looked after our home beautifully. Our garden,pool and home were extremely well looked after. Most importantly our dog Chaos was happy and well cared for. MOG was an excellent communicator. Would be very pleased to have them sit for us again
KATHY (Boat Harbour NSW, Dec 2018)
Thanks Margaret & Keith for taking care of my big girl & my little garden so well. Thank you to Keith for getting my car started. I recommend Margaret & Keith to any person looking for a sitter, they are an honest & very helpful couple, thank you once again.
KAY (Lightning Ridge NSW, Oct 2018 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating We had the pleasure of having Keith & Margret sit our house during our holidays, they looked after our 2 cats and 12 Wallabies, plus took care of our property, we can highly recommend them to look after your house and pets. We returned to find every thing clean and tidy, and we'll looked after.
MARK & SISSY (Maria Creeks QLD, May 2018 - 32 days approx)
No rating Keith and Margaret (Mog) cared for our home for 6 weeks in April/May this year. They were pleasant and trustworthy and Mog's regular communication prior to the sit was reassuring. They kept our house safe, tended mouse traps, fed and watered our visiting wild birds, kept the house and surrounds tidy and watered the garden. It was appreciated that Keith after rain pumped water from one tank to another. His building knowledge was valuable on beginning restoration of pine fence work and offering ... MORE

RHONDA (Port Macquarie NSW, Sep 2017 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating Mog and Keith house- sat for us for nearly 6 weeks while we went to Europe. They did a great job looking after house, animals and garden. The veggie garden was well cared for and they kept my peas and other veggies alive for me!!They were very accommodating of our son who was back from overseas and kept "popping" in to pick up clothes etc. I can appreciate this may have been a little inconvenient so thank you! Lyn and Vern
CAROLYN (Old Bar NSW, Jun 2017 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating Mog & Keith are fantastic house sitters. They came and minded our pets and house with short notice and did a great job. Left the house tidy and the animals happy and safe. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
HELEN (Stuarts Point NSW, Jul 2016 - 1 week 4 days)
No rating We can thoroughly recommend Margaret (and her husband Keith). We put in advert on "Aussie housesitters" website and they were the 1st to contact us. They were excellent: laid-back, competent, handy and they loved looking after Holly. They were meticulous with details regarding Holly's needs. They managed really well in spite of near-cyclone weather conditions that they had to contend with, and went out of their way with household tasks including moving a pile of wood for us. Lovely couple!
JAN (Port Macquarie NSW, Jun 2016 - 2 weeks 3 days)
No rating Margaret & Keith were absolutely fantastic throughout the whole process of the house sit. They made the whole experience so easy for us and gave us the utmost confidence whilst we were away that our dog and our house were well looked after. They even took our dog to the vet for us to have stitches removed as he had an operation a week before we went away. When we returned from our holiday our house was beautifully cleaned and fresh linen on the beds. It didn't even feel like anyone had been ... MORE
