Respectful, honest, caring

If you want your pets to be in safe, caring hands and your home as you left it contact us. Mike and I are retired and finally doing the longed for Aussie road trip. We've both lived in Australia in the 70's and 80's and done the big loop as young people, but now it is time to revisit with a different lens and priorities. We are Kiwis who have lived on lifestyle blocks all our married life. Our current block is animal free and now both our dogs have gone we are ready for the big adventure. We miss not having animals, but this presents an opportunity to travel. We thoroughly enjoy interacting with other peoples pets.

We will be spending 5 months in Australia, starting in SA in early March and making our way north. We are keen to see as much bird life and bush as we can. We are mature, honest, reliable and respectful. We keep a clean, tidy home and are both non smokers. Our aim is to enjoy your animals and your corner of Australia. Your home will be as you left it when you return.

We do require a bail bed for a snorer, so use of 2 rooms is essential for us to have a comfortable stay.

No rating Rosemary and Mike were absolutely fantastic and I would not hesitate in recommending them to housesit. They were respectful, communicated with us regularly and most importantly to us...they looked after and cared for our pets and property very well. Poor Rosemary even had to handle a snake in the house!!

I really appreciate Rosie and Mike looking after my fur child, Sugar, my house and garden. They were easy to communicate with and left the house spotless with the sheets washed and my bed remade (awesome after a very grueling trip home). I'm amazed they managed to keep my garden alive considering the sweltering heat they had to endure whilst I was away, no mean feat as I have a reasonably large garden. I would highly recommend having Rosie and Mike as sitters, my puppy was well looked after. ... MORE

No rating Finding a suitable house sitter is a task not to be taken lightly. However rest assured if you are able to find someone that is as credible, reliable and dependable as Rosemary you can relax and enjoy your time away knowing that when you return all will be as you left it.....if not better!! I can highly recommend Rosemary, she will look after your house and your beloved pets as though they are her own. We received regular updates and returned to everything spick and span, healthy and loved. ... MORE

No rating Thanks Rose for taking care of Purdie, Milady, and Phoenix, Mr Pisspot, the garden all looks great and Kerry was happy to come home to see all his potplants healthy and happy. We're glad you utilzed the pool, and we look forward to having you and Richard ovrr for dinner soon. Just call me when it's suitable. I'll be sorry to see you return to NZ, kindest wishes Jackie and Kerry

No rating Thanks very much to Rosemary who looked after our place as if it were her own. Our cats were happy and relaxed, I wouldn't hesitate to have Rosemary sit for us again

No rating Rosemary was an excellent House sitter & took good care of my "quirky" cat, my Lovebirds & my home. I would certainly recommend Rosemary to look after your home & pets.
MAUREEN (Clontarf QLD, Oct 2016)
No rating Rosemary did a wonderful job of caring for our home and our 4 yr old lab, Sunny. She was fantastic with communication and very easy to spend time with. When we arrived home our home was spotless and tidy. Sunny was sad to see her go as he obviously enjoyed the many walks and trips to the beach. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rosemary for any future house sitting.
JENNY (Buderim QLD, Sep 2016)
No rating Rosemary looked after my two ageing spaniels for a week. One of them required twice daily eye drop medication. Both dogs were very happy and relaxed on my return, and Lincoln's eyes were in good shape (the house was too). I recommend Rosemary as a housesitter and am happy to be contacted for a reference on 0407116105.

No rating Rosemary is awesome! First time I have had the pleasure of a house sitter and will never look back! To come home to clean and tidy, my mail on the table, etc, so happy! I left Rosemary with, probably, an inadequate brief, but she figured it all out. Thank you Rosemary.
ELAINE (Maleny QLD, Aug 2016 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Rosemary was by far the best house sitter we have had. Very fuss free and a lovely lady. She can manage all the outdoor things around the home too. We came home to a well maintained pool and leaf free driveway despite some bad weather. All the animals were well cared for and the house spotless. Will definitely ask Rosemary again but have a feeling she will be all booked up!
MAXINE (Yaroomba QLD, Jun 2016)
No rating We cannot recommend Rosemary more highly! She was respectful of our property and very kind and caring. She was quick to respond to contact/messages and came fully prepared - even leaving us a detailed list of what she did whilst we were away! A+++ housesitter!

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
