The German House Sitters

57, Optician and Toolmaker

55, Health insurance Economist

we are Petra and Harald from Germany and we love animals.

Since we retired from work we escape from the European winter and travel the world.

In Germany we have a nice clean house with a beautiful garden and we are very houseproud.

Harald is technical and practical. There is almost no Problem he couldn't fix .

We are used to keep our household in perfect order and we'll treat yours in the same way.

We are fully vaccinated against Covid 19 including booster shots.

If you need some absolute reliable, non smoking house sitters, here we are.

Thank you for taking the time to read our profile. If you would like to book us to house/pet sit for you, we would be very happy to hear from you!

DONNA (Kingsley WA, Mar 2024 - 1 week 5 nights)
Wow they are better than 5 stars! This was our 1st time having someone in to house sit so we were nervous about the process, all that disappeared when we did our meet and greet to lock it all in. Harald and Petra are amazing people who communicated regularly prior to and during the sit. Our fur babies were extremely well looked after and we received many updates and pictures over the 2 weeks. They did have an issue with the plumbing towards the end of the sit however we managed to get it ... MORE

Our best ever house sitters!!! From the beginning the communication was open to the end when we came home to a beautiful clean home, happy pets and some delicious home baked cookies. Thank you Harald and Petra for looking after our pets and property. Enjoy the rest of the travels around Australia

It was a pleasure having Harold and Petra housesit my home. They looked after our home and garden very well, everything was just as we left it if not better. Harold and Petra were so thoughtful, leaving us a welcome home message and gift. I would recommend them 100%.. Thankyou.
ANGELA (Ridgewood WA, Nov 2023 - 2 weeks)
Lovely couple. They looked after our house and our little dog. Roxy was a very happy dog. Regularly sent us photos of Roxy which gave us piece of mind. When we returned from our holiday our garden and outdoors tidy and plants healthy. Our house was lovely and clean. Petra decorated our table with a welcome home message, kangaroo shaped biscuits, a lovely little basket hand made for our bedroom plus a zipped gold covered note set for our granddaughter. Very special. I would highly recommend ... MORE

JOANNE (Safety Bay WA, Mar 2023 - 4 weeks)
Harald and Petra were great housesitters. They came to Nannup for almost 8 weeks to care for our young active Kelpie Ruby and our property while we were overseas. They both had excellent communication before and during the stay with regular updates along the way about Ruby and what they were all doing. Harold and Petra looked after our place amazingly. Everything was in top condition on our return and they took great care in maintaining and looking after the large gardens and lawns. They are a ... MORE
SHELLEY (Nannup WA, Jan 2023 - 1 month 3 weeks)
Harald and Petra were absolutely amazing! They cared for our dog Archie and walked him twice a day. They sent me photos of him and loved spending time with him. They were so easy to communicate with and took great care of our home aswell. Highly recommend this lovely couple to care for your house/pets!
CHANTELLE (Baldivis WA, Dec 2022 - 1 week 2 days)
We had Petra and Harald house sit for us, it was our first experience and it couldn't have been better. We and the dog were infact sad to see them go. From the very first moment we met them we were at ease and had no hesitation leaving the dog and house to them. Our dog was very comfortable and happy with them and taken care with lots of walk. Petra always sent us updates which made us more comfortable and relaxed so we could enjoy our holidays. When we returned the house was spot clean, fridge ... MORE
DEVAANSSH (Bennett Springs WA, Dec 2022 - 1 week 1 day)
Harald and Petra were fantastic! Our home was beautiful and neat and they cooked us a fabulous dinner for when we arrived home. Our puppy was also very well looked after with lots of love and walks. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
CASEY AND MATT (Kingscliff NSW, Mar 2020 - 3 days)
Petra and Harald house sat and cat sat for my husband and I while we were interstate visiting family. From the moment we met them we felt we could trust them in our home and with our very dear pussycats. When we returned home the house was absolutely immaculate, both cats were happy and relaxed. We also had beautiful kangaroo shaped cookies baked for us, a lovely welcome home sign and a handmade basket Petra weaved sitting on our dining table waiting for us. There was also a small ... MORE

Harold & Petra are amazing! We arrived home after ten days away to a spotless house & a clean & well trained puppy. These guys communication before & during the house sit was 5 stars. Thank you so much guys! You are such wonderful people xxx
KALI (Thornlands QLD, Jan 2020 - 1 week 6 days)
I was so impressed with Harald and Petra, and I was sad to see them go! They are the loveliest people and really interesting to talk to. As soon as I met them, I was put at ease and felt comfortable leaving our home in their hands. Communication was easy, and on our return, the dogs were happy, the house was immaculate, and Petra had made such a lovely welcome home display and gift for us along with some special homemade German recipe cookies which my kids devoured. I would wholeheartedly ... MORE
PHENELLA (New Beith QLD, Apr 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
This was our first experience with Aussie House Sitters after having a less than favourable one when we ventured overseas for 10 weeks last year and had an acquaintance look after our dog and our shouse (shed/house). After reading Harald and Petra's reviews we felt very confident that Cricket (our kelpie) and our abode would be in excellent hands....and we were not wrong....Harald and Petra were absolutely amazing...we had almost daily contact whilst on our cruise....many piccies sent through ...

WOLFGANG (CABARLAH QLD, Mar 2019 - 2 weeks)
I cannot recommend Harold and Petra enough! From first meeting them the day before we left till our arrival home was amazing. The sent ya updates and pics of our fur baby and cared for our house as if it was there own. When we arrived home the house was immaculate and the sweet touch of a welcome home sign and baking on the kitchen bench made our day after a long flight. Wish I could give them more stars they are brillant!!
KATE (Narangba QLD, Mar 2019 - 1 week 5 days)
Harald and Petra were absolutely wonderful house sitters for our holiday. They looked after our home and garden with love and care (both were in better shape on our return than when we left!), and treated our precious pets like family. They were great communicators and equally great company when we were able to spend time with them. I would have no hesitation recommending Harald and Petra to anyone who wants to relax on their holiday knowing that their home and pets are being loved.
CASEY (Sherwood QLD, Feb 2019)
Exceptional! Petra & Harald have just cared for our 2 pups and cat to the very highest standard. Our home was immaculate in every aspect on our return from 3 weeks overseas. A lovely couple who go out of their way to ensure they leave the home, animals and homeowners impressed. I could not recommend them more highly - we will have them back in a heartbeat! If you are a fussy homeowner - this is the couple for you! The animals will miss them - I think they were hoping we had gone forever lol.
SARA (Thornlands QLD, Dec 2018 - 2 weeks 6 days)
Harald and Petra were fantastic housesitters! Our house was immaculate when we came home and our dogs were very well looked after. They kept in regular touch with photos of them too which we really appreciated. Couldn't recommend them more!
KATE (Coral Cove QLD, Nov 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating Wonderful, clean, trustworthy and kind! Everything said by previous homeowners is true. Petra and Harald took such good care of our home and pets. You will be able to holiday worry free and return home to a beautifully clean home! Thank you Petra and Harald and all the best with your future Aussie travels!
REBEKAH (Clifton Beach QLD, Sep 2018 - 1 week)
No rating Harald & Petra came to our home the night before we went away to get familiar with the house & meet our 2 fur babies. What a wonderful couple. Our doggies fell in love with them instantly and so did we. Coming home to a spotless house and happy puppies is fantastic. I would highly recommend them and give them 5 stars. Thank you so much. Champy & Sandy miss you both
LEONIE & GERALD (Shute Harbour QLD, Sep 2018 - 6 days)
No rating Harald and Petra are just gorgeous and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for exceptional house sitters. My house was so clean on my return and all of the linen had been washed. They had even cleaned my fridge!!! Petra send daily updates to me with pictures of the cats and little messages about what they were doing. This was such a sweet touch. Cosmo and Tilly were clearly very, very well looked after. I trusted Petra and Harold 100% from the minute I met them and would ... MORE
KAREN (Murwillumbah NSW, Apr 2018 - 4 days)
No rating Harald and Petra were the perfect house sitter for us. From the moment they both walked through the door we knew our pets and home were in very capable hands. Without hesitation, I would recommend Harald and Petra for house/pet sitting. They treated our house and loved our pets as though they were their own. Not only are they great house/pet sitters but we have also become friends. Eli and Pippy, our dogs, were sorry to see them go!
TARA (Birkdale QLD, Apr 2018 - 5 days)

MICHAEL (Miami QLD, Mar 2018 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating Harold & Petra looked after our 2 cats and dog while we were interstate. They quick formed a bond with our pets and kept us regularly updated with photos and videos. They also left our house immaculate when we returned. Highly recommend!
TOM (ENGADINE NSW, Mar 2018 - 3 days)
No rating I was most fortunate to have Harald and Petra house sit my home in Perth for 5 weeks whilst I was away overseas over Christmas/New Year. They also kept an eye on my neighbour's property at the same time whilst he too was away overseas. Harald and Petra were wonderful with my old silky terrier who is in his dotage and my cat. Both fell in love with Harald and Petra and I cannot imagine anyone could have lavished more care on my critters than Harald and Petra did.. Whilst I was away and without ... MORE
