Reliable Us

66, Housesitter retired Counsellor/Teacher

56, Semi Retired Farmer, Builder & Landscape Gardener

We are Christina & Rowan who live in Pt Vernon Hervey Bay. We love to visit other beautiful areas and house sit.
We have been helping out as House and pet sitters part time for over 15 years.

Rowan and I love looking after chooks, dogs, cats, farm animals and gardens.
Christina has had a lot of experience with elderly dogs, medication and their special needs including injections. She has been owned by many cats for 60 years and loves their diversity and wonderful personalities.

Retired now Christina is a homebody who loves to potter around the house, cook and garden. She enjoys drawing and painting, practises a gentle form of yoga chi gung, meditation, mindfulness, listening to podcasts, jazz, watch good movies, visit old friends and make new ones. Please note Christina is not able to navigate very steep slopes or staircases without handrails.

Rowan grew up in Proston near Kingaroy and is a very practical Man who has a lot of agricultural knowledge, loves gardening and is a great with all kinds of building, home and farm maintenance. He has had a lot of experience with larger animals, horses, cattle. He love cats and dogs too. Rowan really enjoys farm sitting. (Although please note for Farm sitting & large properties, that we are happy to do 2 hours a day unpaid taking care of domestic pets, chooks, one or two farm animals, watering the garden, keeping the house clean, however, we would appreciate being paid for anything over and above 2 hours a day. We would negotiate this with you according to the job description.

Our combined experience means we can take care of your home in the City, Bush or Beach.

We don't smoke or take drugs, might have an occasional social drink, are quiet, easy going and very responsible. Your pets and home will be given lots of love and cared for while you are away.

You will be provided with all our references from previous house sits and Police Clearances from both of us.

If we are looking after your home and pets you can rely on us to follow your instructions to the letter, to be home most of the time and your home will be as you left it when you return.

Give us a call and have a chat about what you need.

Kind regards,

Christina, Rowan & Ken

Our house was returned to us in better condition than we left it and our boxer was very well loved and looked after. He is very timid and they were very accepting of the neighbours coming to help reassure him! Lovely couple and looked after the place and big puppy very well. Christina sent regular updates on how Buddy was doing, which was great. We felt relaxed on our holiday knowing he was in great hands!
KARINA (Kin Kin QLD, Nov 2023 - 4 nights)
I can't speak highly enough of Christina and Rowan who took awesome care of Malakai and the house. Kai even got a bath. Their communication was great. The house and yard was in better shape than when I left and it was lovely to come home after a long flight to freshly washed sheets on the bed. Highly recommend.
SARAH (Deagon QLD, Sep 2023 - 2 weeks 1 night)
Rowan and Christina did a great job housesitting and looking after our dog. Great communication, a happy dog and the house just as we left it. Thanks.
HELEN (Buderim QLD, Sep 2023 - 3 nights)
From the moment we met Christina and Rowan, we knew we had found lovely people who genuinely cared for our animals. We have quite a large mob of horses, dogs and chickens and they looked after each and everyone of them with love, care and attention. Rowan looked after the horses with great skill and Christina looked after the dogs and chickens ( and the resident bush turkey) again with skill and great care. They sent us daily updates and pictures leaving us feeling relaxed and safe in the ... MORE
DEB (Bridges QLD, Jul 2023 - 4 nights)
Thanks Deb and Noel. It was definitely our pleasure. All the best with the birth of the new family member in September.
Christina and Rowan were excellent housesitters. Christina was a great communicator so we were never left wondering and this made not meeting in person much easier to manage. They cared for the dogs really well, even going out of their way to replace a bed that the dogs had chewed up. The house was not only left tidy but the bed sheets washed when we got home. A big thank you.
TRISH (Northgate QLD, Jun 2023 - 2 days)
Thank you Trish. The pleasure was all ours.
Christina and Row were fabulous house sitters. Kept us up to date with photos and info on Max and the house was left immaculate ready for our return. Communication was easy and quick and we would recommend to anyone wishing to secure good house sitters with peace of mind.
DAWN (Corinda QLD, Apr 2023 - 4 days)
Christina and Rowan were fabulous. They looked after the animals beautifully (playing with and walking our kelpie for numerous hours each day), left the house cleaner than it was before, made us a lovely dessert to have on our return and even wrangled some builders who arrived a week early for a job we had booked in! Highly recommend.
HAYLEY (West Woombye QLD, Apr 2023 - 4 days)
We highly recommend Christina and Rowan as house and doggy sitters. There communication before, throughout and after the stay was fast and efficient, keeping us up to date with how our doggy was going throughout the stay, They were reliable with dates and times. The house was left spotless and place well cared for. We will welcome them back to stay in the future! Thanks so much Christina and Rowan.
NICOLE (Eumundi QLD, Mar 2023 - 2 days)
Christina & Rowan were absolutely fabulous ... it was wonderful to come back home and have nothing to do! The pets and gardens were tended to beautifully - I highly recommend these lovely people!! Will certainly be getting them back in the near future (I hope).
ANNE (Kinleymore QLD, Feb 2023 - 1 week)
I am so glad Christina & Rohan house sat for me, looking after my 2 "boys". I came home to 2 well cared for cats & a home that had treated with care & respect. Christina was an excellent communicator, letting me know when they would arrive & when they were leaving. She also followed up to let me know they were home safely & to ensure I had arrived home safely. I would not hesitate to use them again & have asked them to pencil in some dates in May 23
KATE (Gordon Park QLD, Feb 2023 - 6 days)
If you need a Housesitter Christina and Rowan are the perfect couple. They have made my holiday relaxing and piece of mind knowing everything was fine. They had a few challenges but that didn't worry them they just called me to let me know and went on with fixing it. All the animals where loved and cared for even when they where naughty. They are very professional and I highly recommend them to anyone after a Housesitter. I would have them back in a heart beat.
TRACEY (Conondale QLD, Jan 2022 - 1 week 2 days)
Christina & Rowan were fantastic sitters, great communication, kept us up to date with photos of Willy, contacted us about mail deliveries and neighbourhood matters, a clean home and a very well cared for groodle - Willy will miss you ! We would highly recommend these experienced sitters and would have them back again !!!
ANGE (Woody Point QLD, Dec 2021 - 3 days)
I cannot say enough about Christina and Co. they are the best Housesitters- we have named them our Lilly angels! Their care for our little old dog is exceptional and they take care of her with the utmost love- she is 17 and has very special needs and they have gone over and above to ensure she is safe and relaxed whilst we are away. They are flexible and reliable and look after our home- including cleaning!! Regular photos and updates helps to know things are ok We trust them completely and ... MORE
MARCIA (Craignish QLD, Jul 2021 - 4 days)
Christina was very easy to communicate with about planning for the house sit. Christina and Rowan arrived at the agreed time and our dogs Riva and Molly were relaxed with them straight away. They asked questions about the house and the dogs routine and we felt comfortable leaving them with our home and dogs. Whilst we were away they kept us up to date with the girls outings by sending messages and photos. When we came home the house was in perfect condition and the girls were happy. ... MORE

PHIL AND CHRISTINE (Highvale QLD, Jul 2020 - 1 week 1 day)
What a rare delight. Phil and Christine's home is tucked into a magical spot with amazing views. We were so relaxed, steeped in Nature listening to all the birds, enjoying their magnificent deck and watching the mist roll over the mountains into the Valley. Lakshmi their little Burmese girl kept us ... MORE
Christina and Ken looked after our home and animals while we were overseas for 3 weeks. They did a wonderful job of looking after our 3 dogs and 6 chickens. The dogs were walked daily and either Ken or Christina would stay at home with my particularly sooky beagle so he wouldn't howl if left alone! The chickens were let out to fee range daily. The garden was looked after well in what were trying times due to the very dry, hot weather. We received regular updates from Christina which ... MORE
TANIA (Shorncliffe QLD, Dec 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating We cannot thank Christina and Ken enough for looking after our dog and Home. They went above and beyond taking care of Winnie and even cleaning our house! It was so relieving being on holidays knowing our dog was in such great hands and coming home to a clean house. They are both very trustworthy sitters. We got constant updates on Winnie, she looked like she had an awesome time with Christina and Ken and their little dog Belle. We will definitely be using them again and highly recommend to ... MORE
DANNIKA & TOM (Nudgee QLD, Apr 2018 - 1 week)
No rating It was great to have Christina and Ken look after our place in Childers. They are friendly and sociable people who took such great care of our two dogs that I don't think they (the dogs) noticed we had gone. We even got a very good original portrait of Zaphod! Our chooks and plants were well cared for, and the house was cleaner than we left it, with linen washed and on the line at our return. We would happily welcome Christina and Ken back to our place anytime. Thanks again. Clare and Jim
CLARE (South Isis QLD, Mar 2018 - 3 days)
No rating Christina's communication was excellent and we were more than happy with the way she looked after everything while we were away. The house was very clean, our dogs were happy and relaxed and all was as we left it. We are happy to recommend her and look forward to having her back when we next go away.
NICK (Greenslopes QLD, Jan 2018 - 4 days)
No rating Thank you Christina and Ken for taking such lovely and committed care of both our furbabies - Alfie and Jazzie - and of our home. We really appreciated the photographs and updates you sent us and for double-checking any queries you had regarding care of the animals. I would 100% recommend both you and Ken as house-sitters. Not only were the pets both calm and content, but the house was in lovely condition on our return. Alfie clearly loved the company of your beautiful little dog, Belle. We ... MORE

Thank you so happy with you looking after our babies
KERRY AND DAVID (Eli Waters QLD, Feb 2017 - 2 days)
No rating Christina and Ken looked after our furbabies and housesat for us for a week at the end of January 2017. They are a lovely couple and kept us updated with messages and photos. We also let them use our car and it was cleaned and filled up before we returned. I would recommend them for any house sit.
MARLENE (Bowen QLD, Jan 2017 - 1 week)
No rating Christina and Ken housesat for us recently over the Xmas period. This was the first time we have used an "unknown" housesitter and we couldn't be more happy with Christina & Ken. Even though they live a few hundred kilometres away from us they made the effort to come down early to get to meet us and our dog. Christina kept me up to date with how everyone was getting along whilst we were away and even went to the trouble to get some vet supplies for us treat our dog. When we came home ... MORE
