We are a retired couple and have been living in our caravan since 2016. We are keen gardeners and love all types of animals having had dogs and cats as pets over the years and housesat many different pets. Gaye is a keen horse lover having been involved in horse training in her younger years.
We have a son in Perth and daughter in Tasmania.
.We both have police clearances and quiet clean living and non smoking and leave all our sits with the house like you left it. We have completed many housesits so far with many reviews on our profile .We travel constantly and have found Housesitting a great experience.
We will be in Perth until early January 24 and then Tassie until early March 24 when we plan on travelling to Queensland for the winter before returning to WA.

Dave and Gaye are so much more than house sitters. In all our experiences of house sitting or house swapping, we have never ever returned to our house in the pristine state it was in. The house was spotless in every way. Dave and Gaye had even cleaned the glass on our wood burner so when we lit the fire, which they had thoughtfully set for us, it looked like a new stove! Lou the cat was healthy, fit and happy - not even a sulk at our absence, so he had obviously been pampered too. ... MORE

Dave and Gaye did a fantastic job of looking after our house and pets. Their communication was great and the house was spotless when we returned.
PHIL (Mount Rumney TAS, Jan 2024 - 2 weeks 2 nights)
Dave and Gaye were wonderful housesitters. They looked after our pets, house, garden and pool as if they were their own. The house was sparkling clean and the pets very content on our return. They were flexible to our needs and communication was easy. We definitely recommend Dave and Gaye for any prospective sit in the future.
CELIA (Willunga SA, Nov 2023 - 1 week 3 nights)
Thanks so much Dave and Gaye for taking amazing care of our home and Lucy! House was in better shape than we left it and Lucy was very well entertained. Would love to have you stay again.
MITCH (Hillarys WA, Oct 2023 - 2 weeks)
We had a stress free holiday thanks to Dave and Gaye. House was perfect when we returned! We are very grateful to them and Aussie House Sitters for facilitating this great service.
MICHELLE (Lesmurdie WA, Aug 2023 - 5 weeks)
Thanks Dave & Gayle for making our holiday worry free. Our dog, fussy cat (not so well behaved, thanks for dealing with her)and cow were very well looked after. We came home to a tidy and clean house. Thanks again, its so nice to be able to enjoy your holidays when leaving your pets behind.
PETA (West Swan WA, Jul 2023 - 3 weeks)
Dave and Gaye were amazing. Benson had no issues whatsoever and with combined doggy day care too I dont think he needed to miss us. Was very comforting to come home to see our place looked after and Benson looked after too. Would definitely have them back again
STEPH (Baldivis WA, May 2023 - 1 week 4 days)
Dave and Gaye were great. They kept are gardens and lawn maintained and the house was lovely and clean when we returned. We felt comfortable leaving our home and gardens in their care. Definitely recommend them 👌
RIC & SHARON (Erskine WA, Mar 2023 - 4 weeks)
Dave and Gaye did me a huge favour stepping in when another sitter had to move on. They were super understanding as I was already away and had to have a friend do the handover for me. They made life easy for me at a very difficult time and I'd give them a 10 star rating if I could.
TERESA (Baldivis WA, Jan 2023 - 5 days)
Thank you for you time. Dave and Gaye left the house well maintained and Oskar was happy and healthy when we returned. Good communication. Dave fixed a burst washing machine hose that occurred while we were away. Great hosts I would recommend and welcome back.
JODI (Baldivis WA, Apr 2022 - 1 week 6 days)
Dave and Gaye were absolutely amazing and we couldn't have left Gunner and our home in better care. We haven't made it home yet and they were so very accommodating when our plans changed and ensured a smooth handover with our next sitters. I know, without a doubt, that our house was left immaculate and Gunner was very sad to see them leave. Thank you both so very much for everything ❤
AROHA (Madora Bay WA, Mar 2022 - 4 weeks)
Dave and Gaye looked after our house and our cocker girls wonderfully .Everything was perfect when we got home . Look forward to having them again the next time we go on holidays
PRESTON (York WA, Feb 2022 - 1 week 6 days)
We would like to thank Gaye and Dave for looking after our German Shepard Beau so well during our time away. They were exceptional with the love and care shown towards him and also brilliant giving the medication he requires on a daily basis. Everything including the house, chickens, cocky, pool, spa and garden were well looked after and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending Gaye and Dave for anyone who requires reliable and caring house sitters.
PETER AND SUE (Bedfordale WA, Feb 2022 - 1 week)
Thanks so much for looking after our house and Carlos while we were away. You guys were the best sitters we have had, Carlos looked so happy in our photo updates. Our house was immaculate upon return and the washing was folded so well it looked as though it had been ironed. We would highly recommend Dave and Gaye to sit again. Thanks so much and safe travels
JESSE (Atwell WA, Jan 2022 - 2 weeks)
Gaye and Dave did a marvellous job of looking after our house, garden, chooks and Sarge, our dog. It was great to get away and be confident that they would look after everything for us. I would recommend Gaye and Dave for anyone looking for capable people to take care of their house. Easy going and easy to communicate with.
ISOBEL (Denmark WA, Oct 2021 - 2 weeks 5 days)
Wow! I am sure our house was cleaner when we got home than when we left it!!! Dave and Gaye did an awesome job of looking after our home and cats. We would have them, back anytime!
LILY (Bayswater WA, Mar 2020 - 1 week)
This was our first experience using house sitters that we didn't know and we couldn't be happier. Dave and Gaye were great in communicating with us both before and during the housesit. Our menagerie of animals were all happy and well cared for when we arrived home and the house was neat and tidy. We would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting their house and pets well cared for and wouldn't hesitate to have them around again!
MELISSA (Mount Lawley WA, Jan 2020 - 1 week 6 days)
David & Gaye looked after our 2 dogs and Siamese cat for 5 weeks. It was our first experience of Aussie House Sitters and we are so pleased with the outcome. David & Gaye went above and beyond what we expected as unfortunately our furry friends, being exuberant to say the least, required a few visits to the vets. Although we are sure this was stressful for David & Gaye, they handled it brilliantly, very calm and profession. The dogs need daily medication which went very smoothly. ... MORE
HEATHER (Cottesloe WA, Dec 2019 - 1 month 1 week)
Thank you so much for the care you showed to our pets and our home Dave & Gaye. I know Beauty really appreciated all those beach walks. It was so lovely to return to a sparkling clean home. And you mowed the lawn!!! You are superstars.
SHAUNNA (Duncraig WA, Nov 2019 - 2 weeks 3 days)
Wonderful house sitters. A+++++++ would highly recommend
SIMONE (Bedford WA, Oct 2019 - 1 week 2 days)
Dave & Gaye did a fantastic job of looking after our fur babies and the house. Communication was great before and during the stay. Archer, Reo & Mia got looked after so well and had lots of company through the day. Archer (Puppy) was a bit off colour on the Friday before we return and Dave called me and kindly took him to the vet for a check, all good. Lovely couple and could not be happier with Dave & Gaye. Thank you David & Alex
DAVID (Bayswater WA, Oct 2019 - 1 week 5 days)
No rating Gaye and Dave were very easy to liaise with and it was so pleasing to come home to a spotlessly clean house and happy dog. Thank you for taking such good care of Sushi. We knew on first meeting we could go away content in the knowledge she would be well looked after.
MELVA AND PAUL (Trigg WA, Sep 2019 - 2 weeks 6 days)
Hello Dave and Gaye, I felt so comfortable to leave our old Dalmation with you. Its a big ask to take care of an old demanding very spoilt doggie like Joops. I came home to a healthy happy relaxed boy. I was over the moon. PLUS the house and garden was tidier than we left it. Thankyou and all the very best. I hope you are available the next time we go away. Thankyou Di and Joops
DI (Swanbourne WA, Jul 2019 - 1 week)
It was such a pleasure having Dave and Gaye stay in our house. This was our first time using this site and we couldn't be happier. Very easy communication and as seasoned house sitters, Dave and Gaye were fabulous, giving us such piece of mind. We had very happy dogs, which was very important to us, and everything was in very good order on return. Highly recommended, thank you Dave and Gaye.
ROBYN (Boya WA, Jun 2019 - 1 month 1 week)
Dave & Gaye looked after our home and animals with a lot of care. The house was sparkly clean when we returned and the animals looked happy and healthy. Thanks to you both for all your care. It helped us to relax on our holiday
SUE (Tarnagulla VIC, Jan 2019 - 1 week 6 days)
Thank you Dave & Gaye, we came home to a spotless home & two very happy puppies, it was great to have a holiday away knowing that back home everything was being well looked after. We can't thank you both enough, Would not hesitate to recommend Dave & Gaye to anyone considering them for a house sit.
STEWART (Baranduda VIC, Dec 2018 - 4 weeks)
Always lovely to come home to a house cared for. Thank you
TRICIA (Port Douglas QLD, Dec 2017 - 2 months)
Absolutely delighted to return home to happy dogs and our home as we had left it. As first time users of this site, Dave was easy to communicate with and allayed our concerns. Would definitely have Dave and Gaye sit our home again and highly recommend them to others. Thank you
NIGEL (Freshwater QLD, Dec 2017)
