Rose & Graham

64, Retired, Bank Teller

72, Retired, Australia Post Contractor

Hello there,
Graham & I are non smoking, friendly, reliable retirees, who love travelling and exploring new places.
Our home is in the beautiful Barossa Valley, South Australia.
But sadly, when we lost our elderly Ridgeback dog, he left a big hole in our lives.
So that led us to house sitting, where we could still get the enjoyment of cuddling and caring for other peoples pets.
Many, many years ago we had a small acreage hobby farm, with the usual farm animals e.g. dogs, cats, chooks, ducks, several sheep and a horse.
We are caring and trustworthy and would treat both your animals and home as if they were our own.
Your animals will receive lots of love, cuddles, walks and kindness.
We are happy to forward sms/email updates, with pics of your pet/s regularly for your peace of mind.

If you like our reviews, give us a call and see how we can help each other. Cheers.

This was the first time we used Aussie House Sitters and I was so fortunate to have Rose and Graham as our house sitters, and more importantly carers for our fur baby, Gus. I can not thank Rose and Graham enough for taking such good care of Gus. We came home to a happy dog and a clean and tidy house. Rose and Graham - you are amazing xx
TRUDI (Noosaville QLD, Jun 2023 - 2 weeks 1 night)
There are not enough stars to rate the care that Rose and Graham gave to our house and Great Dane while we were on our recent European holiday. Making prior arrangements to stay was very efficient and built our confidence that our home and dog were in the best, most experienced hands. They went above and beyond our expectations during their stay, especially attending to Sapphie’s spring allergies and administering her daily medicines. She was so well cared for and showed delight without any ... MORE

BRIEN (Urraween QLD, Jul 2023 - 4 weeks)
Only met Rose and Graham the day before our departure- our impressions were very much in accordance with all their other favourable reviews- and we felt very comfortable in the knowledge the animals would be well cared for during our 2 months away. Unfortunately, while we were away both dogs needed some veterinary attention, we were uncontactable , but Rose and Graham responded to quickly and appropriately. On our return, the house was spotless, the pets were happy and healthy. Would highly ... MORE

Thanks for your great review, Paul. Cheers
Rose and Graham were amazing. They looked after my boys (cats) so well, regular updates given, house was kept so clean I could’ve sworn a cleaner had been through. The garden was maintained well. Honestly couldn’t recommend them more and I hope we get lucky enough to have them come back sometime!
ASHLEA (Craiglie QLD, Mar 2023 - 3 weeks)
Thanks for your lovely review, Cheers
We were delighted to have Rose & Graham looking after our home and 2 dachshunds. From our first contact with them they were friendly, enthusiastic and positive. We received regular updates & photos of our dogs while we were away. We returned to a tidy, clean home and 2 very happy doggies. We know they were very well cared for. Thank you for caring for our garden through some very hot days. We would not hesitate in recommending them. Thanks again and we would love to have you sit for us ... MORE
DIANNE & TONY (Coromandel Valley SA, Jan 2023 - 1 week)
Rose and Graham are brilliant. The house was pristine and they took such careful care of all the animals. Great communication and very friendly. Highly recommend them if you want to feel confident that everything will be great when you return. Thank you so much for looking after everyone, especially Tutu!
NIKKI (Adelaide SA, Dec 2022 - 1 week 4 days)
Rose and Graham were wonderful house sitters. As soon as they arrived we felt at ease leaving our animals especially our dogs with them. When we left for our trip the dogs didn't even get upset like they normally would. They were even able to extend their stay for 2 extra days when we had a short notice visit to Adelaide after our holidays. We came home to happy, well cared for animals and a clean house. We would highly recommend them and would definitely have them sit for us again if they were ... MORE

MAY (Glenelg North SA, Sep 2022 - 1 week - 1 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
Rose and Graham were the perfect sitters. They were pretty self contained and fitted in easily. They kept us informed about the pups, who they obviously looked after with care. They left the house immaculate. We would thoroughly recommend them as sitters and would happily welcome them back in the future.

Plenty of pics of our happy animals while we were away! House was left spotless and we would have them back in a ... MORE

KERRI (Watervale SA, Mar 2022 - 1 week 2 days)
Rose and Graham took great care of our house and pets while we were away and left the house very clean and tidy. Rose provided excellent communication with us prior to the stay and then gave updates on the animals while we were away and a summary on our return.
CARMAN (Aldgate SA, Jan 2022 - 6 days)
We are very thank full for the loving care and attention for our Pets and Home that Rose and Graham provided during the 6 days they kindly offered to stay in our home. Especially due to the short notice and the long drive to our home in Port Lincoln. It was very reassuring for us to have such highly recommended people. We enjoyed the opportunity to meet them before leaving home and show them our routines with the animals. When we returned the animals where calm and happy, and our home was just ... MORE

Thanks for your lovely review Jennifer and David. It was real a pleasure meeting you. Take care, Rose & Graham
Was lovely to have Rose and Graham sit for us again. The fur babies were well looked after and contented on our return. The house was clean and tidy and the plants watered. I would be more than happy to have Graham and Rose sit for us again and highly recommend them.

Rose and Graham were fantastic. This was our first time using this site and they helped us immensley. It was lovely to come home after a long trip to a house that was immaculate. They were very loving to our dog and that was our biggest concern. I would definately use them and again and recommend them to other house owners. They were brilliant. 11 out of 10 in all areas.

MAY (Glenelg North SA, Jan 2021 - 1 week 1 day - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
We did not meet Rose and Graham before we left but had spoken on the phone and found Rose and Graham to be extremely accommodating. We came home to find everything in tip top order - the house was sparkling, the plants healthy and our dog happy and content. We would highly recommend Rose and Graham to anyone who is considering a sitter. Many thanks for making our holiday a great one, knowing we didn't have to worry about our house and dog :-)

Thank you very much to Rose and Graham for carrying for our home and pet so well. They are a lovely friendly couple and we enjoyed having a bit of time with them. Everything was clean and tidy and as we left it. Misty the cat was contented and happy. I hope Rose and Graham may sit for us again and I have no hesitation in recommending them for any future sits.

Dear Kay & Brenton, thank you for your lovely review. We really appreciate it. Cheers
I highly recommend Rose and Graham as your next house sitters. Rose was very prompt to communicate the arrangements and initiated follow up which I appreciated as things can get busy before going on holidays. This couple are friendly and trustworthy and are experienced as House sitters. I would definitely request them again and encourage you to do so as well.

Absolutely LOVE Rose and Graham. A lovely couple who took amazing care of our house and pets. We got regular photos of our dogs and cat (who obviously loved Rose and Graham) and the house was beautiful and clean when we arrived home. Communication was excellent with calls and text messages before the housesit to get to know each other. Rose and Graham took the time to meet us and our pets before the housesit started as well which put our mind even more at ease. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend ... MORE

Good luck with all yiur future sits and we hope to meet up again.
SHERYL (Port Franklin VIC, Sep 2017 - 2 weeks 5 days)
No rating I can't say enough about Rose & Graham. We were their first house sit & the care & understanding that our three dogs & two horses received was very much appreciated. We came home to very happy animals & our home was sparkling. They kept in touch with us & nothing was a problem. We only hope that they can come back to us when we have our next holiday. I highly recommend them both to care for your home & babies knowing that they will be loved as we found them.
