About

Hello

We are a retired couple and have been travelling and exploring (housesitting most of the time) for several years. We label what we do as slow travel and for the last year we’ve been in Broken Hill. But we are keen to get back out there and have resumed housesitting.
We are non-smokers and very quiet people. We are doing housesitting as a way to explore new places, meet new people and to have some quality time with animals when the opportunity arises. I (Paul) am a photographer and always welcome being in new places with new people and scenes to record. Pauline is using her time to explore drawing and painting and a little photography as her way of experiencing the new places we are continually discovering.

As mentioned above, we have been pet and housesitting for much of the last few years, both in England and here in Australia. Our housesitting references, as well as a couple of property references are listed on this site (some have been copied from other Housesitting sites we have been registered with over the years). Sharing our lives with animals is essential for us and we have cared for a great many in housesitting assignments as well as having had pets of our own in the past. During our housesitting lives we have cared for all shapes, sizes, and breeds of dogs, and many cats ranging from kittens and very timid rescued animals all the way to the ones who see themselves as ‘royalty’. Also, we have cared for a variety of birds as well as the odd lizard. We understand that each animal is a unique individual with its own specific needs, and we take the responsibility of caring for them very seriously. They are always our number one priority. We are very much ‘home bodies’, which means we are always there to provide security for your home and time for your pets.
In addition we have National Police Certificates which are available for sighting if required.
We look forward to hearing from you and if you need any more information from us, please contact us.
Thank you
Pauline and Paul

Paul and Pauline looked after our house and car whilst we were in Vietnam for a few weeks. It all went very smoothly from beginning to end and both house and cat were well looked after. We would definitely have them housesit again and feel like we know them despite having never met. They were really excellent at communicating with us before during and after. Thanks Paul and Pauline

I will start off by firstly apologising for rambling on... I tend to do this when I am excited about something!! Rob & I could not speak more highly of Paul & Pauline. Do yourself a favour & trust this pair to take good care of not only your home but any precious animals. Paul & Pauline were one of over 10 applicants to apply to look after our unit & 2 very timid moggies. They stood out straight away with all of the information that they sent through. It was obvious that they knew how anxious it is for us Mommy's & Daddy's to trust a stranger with the care of our fur babies. We felt straight away at ease knowing they were fellow animal lovers. They remained constantly in touch with us through emails. It was lovely to get regular updates on how our Alf & Stef were doing. Our 2 cats have never interacted with previous housesitters yet they came out & not only accepted fusses but demanded it from Paul & Pauline. Proof that animals do have good instincts & can sense kind people. Our home was also left clean & tidy. With the bed linen changed & washed. The mail was collected & they even offered to let me know who it was off in case there was anything important that we needed to deal with. We hadn't asked them to water our pot plants as we thought they were dead as we suck at gardening lol. Yet we came back to discover they had managed to bring our herbs back to life! I would be more than happy to be contacted to answer any questions on Mob# 0424 452 436 Email: sallyhaw@y7mail.com

Paul and Pauline were great house/cat sitters from start to finish. They sent an informative application that gave me an idea about who they were and why they were house sitting. Paul was very quick to respond to messages and supplied more ID when requested. I felt comfortable that they would care for my cat and the house. While we were away they kept in touch via email, providing updates and even a photo. Katniss (my cat) was clearly well cared for and happy, and the house was spotless. Thank you for doing such a great job, and allowing us to enjoy our holiday! Rachel, Adelaide, October 2014
