Shane - retired builder

71, Retired builder

68, Retired locum pharmacist

Retired builder and who have been enjoying time on the golf course and at the beach enjoying good company weather and fishing . However i have recently decided to take off around Australia this year and would like to take the opportunity to stay in towns a little longer and enjoy the company of some animal friends i. love dogs, and miss them ,as they are not allowed at the retirement village where I am presently living.
i have experience in house sitting in both town and country and we have owned acreage and been responsibility for livestock in our younger years. i like to ensure that owners have nothing to worry about on their return and that the home is kept clean and tidy.
i would be happy to care for any dogs cats chooks and any other animals taking in consideration our years lol. I am a non smokers only social drinker and good housekeepers. I have police checks which are available via attachments or photos but would be willing to show original documents .As for references I can provide contact numbers.

No rating We were very anxious about leaving our animals and also the amount of work they would be for our housesitters, until we met Carol & Shane! Nothing was too much trouble! Our 20 Chooks (including our paralysed house chook), 2 mischievous dogs, poorly cat (that required medication), horse and pony were cared for so well. We received regular updates. A warm meal and clean house awaited our return! We cannot thank you enough.

I can highly recommend Shane and Sandra as houseitters. They stayed for 3 weeks and looked after my 3 yo sheepadoodle. They were easy to deal with and did a great job caring for Timmy. They communicated well and the house was left clean and tidy. They cleaned a lot of leaves out of the pool and cared well for my home. Given the opportunity, I would happily use them again. Thank you!

Shane & Sandra took great care of our home & more importantly our fur babies. Dropping us at the airport & picking us up again was much appreciated. We would certainly have you back if needed & you were available Thank you both

We met Shane and Sandra on our way north, they were heading down to Perth. We had left our 4 dogs and 2 cats with our teenage kids until Shane and Sandra arrived. Our teens were then leaving to join us up north. The day the teens were due to leave we dropped a phase on our power. These guys went above and beyond to save our fridges and freezers (thanks for cleaning them out too) by connecting their own generator and using their extension cords to keep lights, power and hot water to our ...

We loved the care and expertise Shane and Sandra showed whilst at our house. Our dogs loved their company, especially Shane who showed love and care to our gorgeous boys. House was left impeccable. Great communication from the onset.

Shane and Sandra looked after your two dogs whilst we were away and were a pleasure to deal with. They were kind enough to come down the day before to our meet our grumpy sausage dog! They left the house just as we had left it. Thanks so much! Enjoy your trip around Australia!

I highly recommend Shane and Sandra as house sitters. They kept my house intact and my pets happy during the worst weather in a decade. Shane thoughtfully fixed my clothesline and even the lock on my garden shed. I felt very secure leaving my pets with Shane and Sandra even with one dog requiring daily medication. I had a stress free holiday thanks to Shane and Sandra and hope that they are available next time I go away.

Reference for Shane Summers 15 May 2019 Shane Summers house sat for my wife and I for six weeks commencing in March 2019. Shane's responsibility was to look after our two dogs and keep the house and yard in good order. This was the first time we have used a house sitter. To better understand what we and Shane were taking on, we asked him to arrive a couple of days before our departure so we could show him around and to see how he interacted with our dogs. He took to the dogs ... MORE

No rating Shane and Carol were the first house sitters we have ever used and we cannot recommend them enough if you are looking for a very caring and genuine couple to look after your house and loved animals when you want to go away. We invited Shane and Carol to arrive a day or two before we left the country for 2 weeks so we could help our 3 dogs get used to their careers while we were also still home. The dogs took to them straight away and to observe the happiness our dogs also brought to Shane and ... MORE

No rating Hi Carol and Shane, thanks so much for your wonderful house sitting efforts. We really appreciated your thoughtful, calm and empathetic management of the unfortunate crisis. We returned to find the house cleaner and tidier than we left it! Thanks!! The gardens all seemed well looked after and the main grass areas freshly mown. Chocolate was already happily playing ball with friends by the time we arrived. Thanks for your regular communication too. Good luck with your future travels - ... MORE

No rating We cannot recommend Shane and Carol highly enough. Our fur babies took to them straight away and we felt comfortable trusting them with our kids. They managed our pups medication requirements well, kept our plants alive and cleaned up our home to a standard better than we keep it too. We rate them as the best house sitters we have had to date, and we use this site a few times a year. Thanks again Carol and Shane, you guys rock!
