We are very thankful and appreciative of the care Paul and Joy showed to our dachshund Hugo, and to our home. We came home to a beautifully clean house, a mown lawn and a very happy pup! It was great to meet them before we left, and they kept it touch while we were away. We can highly recommend Paul and Joy as house and pet sitters, and would welcome them back any time.

Paul and Joy are the ultimate house sitters, the animals are their priority feeling loved and nurtured. Their communication with us allowed us to feel secure in the knowledge that our home and animals were in the best hands. On our return it was as if we’d never left, house immaculate, pets happy and not fretful, plants watered, vegetables thriving. Thanks to you both for your love and attention.
JEN (Hervey Bay QLD, Nov 2023 - 2 weeks 5 nights)
Paul and Joy were the perfect house sitters, organised with good communication. We were also able to extend our sit to 6th - 25th June. Our anxious sharpei 'Freya' took an instant liking to them when they visited us prior to the sit which reassured us. They are down to earth, reliable and a caring couple. That was observe when we arrived home to a happy and well cared for doggy and an immaculate home. Hope to see you again for another sit 😊 Happy and safe travels. Judy, Gary and Freya
JUDY (Dundowran Beach QLD, Jun 2023 - 2 weeks and 5 days)
Paul & Joy have been absolutely fantastic. Our house was immaculate when we returned. They kept us updated in all aspects of their sit which was extremely comforting. Our cats were so well cared for too and on our return they were calm and happy cats. Thanks so much for looking after our cats, home, garden and pool we would have no hesitation in recommending them and would love them to sit for us again in the future.

Paul and Joy are a supper lovely couple. We are so glad we invited them to care for our home and pets. Would highly recommend them and will ask them again if we need a house sitter.
MAUREEN (Cungulla QLD, Feb 2021 - 2 weeks 3 days)
We would have no hesitation in recommending Joy and Paul. They came and met us two weeks before they sat for us, and we felt very comfortable with them straight away. They are so kind, and obliging, and we feel that our pets and home were looked after so well. They stayed in touch with us, and they made us feel relaxed about being away .We're looking forward to having them sit again for us.
WILLIAM (Hervey Bay QLD, Jan 2020 - 1 week 2 days)
Paul & Joy were wonderful, my home was spotless, my cats were happy & my garden looked amazing. They were easy & lovely to communicate with. Would definitely recommend & would have them house sit for me again.
DENICE (Long Jetty NSW, Feb 2019 - 1 week 4 days)
No rating Paul and Joy house sat for us for two weeks in September and they looked after our home and cat with the utmost of care, I knew from the very first moment I would have nothing to worry about. When we came home the house was spotless and the cat was content. We have no hesitation in recommending them for house sitting.
CHERYL (Urangan QLD, Sep 2018 - 1 week 6 days)
No rating Paul & Joy are a truly genuine and delightful couple. They went to the trouble of meeting up with me prior to them coming to house sit, which meant I was able to go away without any worries about them being in my home. I returned home to a meticulously clean house, garden and a beautifully cared for cat. They kept in touch with me and sent pictures of Minou while I was gone. I would have no hesitation recommending Paul & Joy to house sit. If available they would definitely be my first choice ... MORE

No rating Paul and Joy are with out doubt the best house sitters i have had the pleasure of welcoming into my house. I returned home to a beautifully maintained house ang garden - my dog "prince" Harry loved them so much he wanted to go with them . I ha e no reservations in recommending this lovely couple if you are lucky enough to obtain their services - I would have them back in a heartbeat. They are returning to our area for booked house sits later in the year and Greg and i will be looking forward ... MORE
ROBYN (Urangan, Hervey Bay QLD, Feb 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating I would highly recommend Paul and Joy for house sitting. They took great care of my home and my fur babies. My old cat needed a trip to the Vet, and some medicine and Paul and Joy ensured she received what she needed and cared sincerely for her. The other cats were just happy to be looked after and protected. I returned to a tidy clean home and even they tidied around the yard for me so I had nothing to do when I got home ! They kept me up to date with how things were going regularly so I had ... MORE

No rating Paul and Joy are absolutely fantastic and we would thoughly recommend them to house sit. Such a pleasure to talk to on the phone and meet in person, our dogs instantly took to them both and we knew straight away that our fur babies and home would be very well looked after. When we arrived home our house was spotless, and an absolute joy to come home to giving us a chance to have an afternoon nap!! When we book our next holiday we will definitely contact Paul and Joy first and hope that they ... MORE
