Responsible and Mature House Sitting Couple

47, Retired

49, Retired

We are a retired couple who are interested in travel, meeting new people and helping take care of their home and animals while away. We have recently begun traveling full time and are an active, late-40's, non-smoking couple that enjoys the companionship of pets. Sarah was a social worker for 15 years and enjoys working with individuals with Developmental Disabilities. She has always enjoyed staying active with coaching and playing soccer. Jimmy is a newly retired Life Coach whose passion is helping others achieve their dreams. He's very active and enjoys long hikes. We are always up for an adventure while also being extremely responsible and dependable.
We are full time travelers who want to experience different cultures and communities by traveling slowly and living in those communities. We love learning about and experiencing new places but prefer some comforts of a home and the companionship of pets, which makes house sitting a perfect fit for us. Our travels keep us from having pets, so we find the temporary care of other's pets rewarding.
You can travel and rest easy knowing your pets and home are in good hands. We have many years of experience taking care of our own animals and homes as well as those of our friends. We make a great team as both of us are service oriented. Jimmy is an early riser who enjoys being active and spending time outdoors and will give your animal as much exercise as they want. Sarah will shower them with lots of attention and care.
We are former pet owners who cared for 2 cats until they passed away at 13 and 19 years old, after very long and pampered lives. We have experience with dispensing medications, injections/shots, insulin testing as well as giving IV fluids. We also have experience with caring for dogs and chickens.
As current homeowners and landlords, we understand the importance of real property care/maintenance and the peace of mind that comes with working with someone who's trustworthy. We enjoy yard work and will keep your home extremely clean and tidy.
We have experience as Innkeepers/Caretakers for a 6 cottage Airbnb property. This includes daily upkeep with cleaning and reservations as well as landscaping, hot tub maintenance and overall property management.
Our priorities are to provide peace of mind while you are away, security for your property and true companionship for your pets while communicating with you as much (or as little) as you desire. We have dealt with various daily issues that any homeowner can relate to as well as the ones they dread - ie. preparing for major hurricanes.
We are hardworking, adaptable, organized and extremely clean, taking special care to respect and leave your home in excellent condition. While not overly handy, we are proactive in attending to any situation or emergency that may arise. As such, we are confident that we can provide you with an excellent house sitting experience. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you.
While we are new to Aussie Housesitters, we are not new to housesitting. We have numerous 5 star reviews on a different platform. Please contact us for details.

I was so lucky to have Sarah and Jimmy to look after my Dog Jake and my house. Communication was excellent and my house was spotless. As for Jake, I don’t think he has ever had life so good, he was moping around looking for his new mates for a couple of days after they left. Thankyou Sarah and Jimmy, I would recommend you to everyone. Enjoy you travels Glenys
 
GLENYS (Happy Valley SA, Apr 2024 - 3 nights)
I highly recommend Sarah and Jimmy! They looked after our cat Button for 5 days over Easter. They are a wonderful, friendly couple and Button instantly bonded with them when they came over to meet us. Communication was easy and always punctual and I had absolutely no concerns. Our plans changed while we were away meaning we had to stay away an extra night which was no drama for Sarah and Jimmy who happily accommodated our changes. We returned to a very contented cat and incredibly clean ... MORE
 
SARAH (Five Dock NSW, Mar 2024 - 4 nights)
Sarah & Jimmy simply awesome people. Even with a potential cyclone coming in they stuck to the plan, did what had to be done, great communication. House & yard exactly as I left it (though ever so much cleaner 😁). My not so sociable cat was so well looked after, we came home to a happy content almost lap cat. We couldn’t have left the house in better hands. Highly recommend!
 
SUSIE (Edge Hill (Cairns) QLD, Dec 2023 - 1 month 1 week)
Sarah and Jimmy were perfect housesitters and I couldn't be happier we chose them to look after the kitties. Sarah and Jimmy were excellent communicators before and during the sit. They kept us updated with photos and even managed to make friends with our most timid girl. The house was spotless when we returned and they even baked us a welcome home breakfast. I highly highly recommend Sarah and Jimmy, if they apply for your sit, accept them straight away. :-) I am happy to be contacted ... MORE
 
CEIRE (East Perth WA, Nov 2023 - 1 week 2 nights)
Sarah & Jimmy were an absolute delight! Great communication from the get-go. We felt very confident to leave our dog, cat & house in their care. They sent us photos of the pets daily and kept us in the loop throughout our time away. We arrived home to an immaculately clean and tidy house, and they had gone the extra mile with dinner & baking ready for us when we returned. The pets were very happy with Sarah & Jimmy and the many walks and cuddles they received. We would highly recommend ... MORE
 
TANYA (Te Atatu Peninsula North Island, Sep 2023 - 1 week) From Kiwi House Sitters
We were so fortunate to have them looking after our animals and house. Everything was so well looked after. The house was clean and tidy and our animals missed them the first day or so. They even left lunch for us that was so appreciated as we were a bit travel weary and didn't feel like going shopping. Thank you again.
 
MICHAEL (Hamilton North Island, Sep 2023 - 1 week 3 nights) From Kiwi House Sitters
Sarah and Jimmy were amazing. They looked after the house and kitties so well. I believe the house was cleaner when we returned. They communicated and sent photos so we could relax and not worry. I would highly recommend them.
 
ANNETTE (St Kilda VIC, Aug 2023 - 5 days)
Sarah and Jimmy were amazing. They looked after our home, garden and cat Marmalade with such care. Marmalade was injured whilst we were away, and they were just great with making sure he was so well cared for. We came home to a sparkling clean home and a cooked breakfast! It was such a lovely way to be welcomed back. I cannot recommend them highly enough and would love to have them back any time at all! Thanks Sarah and Jimmy!
 
LIBBY (Camp Hill QLD, Jun 2023 - 1 month 2 weeks)
Sarah and Jimmy are amazing. I felt totally at ease leaving my home and my fur babies with them. I received regular updates and photos and pip and ox looked very happy. Arriving home to a clean house and a lovely dinner was very thoughtful and much appreciated. Sarah and Jimmy went over and above to look after my pets and my home. I would recommend Sarah and Jimmy for any sit.
