A caring respectful duo. We are a happy, quiet, easy going non-smoking mature couple who have raised 3 wonderful children and are now embracing a gradual transition to retirement. Roger spent 35 years working across all three levels of Government and Janette has just wound up a 22 year career with Big W. As we were pet owners most of our lives, and now have chosen to travel for a while, we love the opportunity to spend time and care for animals.

We have a beautiful home base in SE Qld from which we have embarked on a self sufficient camping trip around OZ and several long coastal reef sailing trips up the Queensland coast. These experiences are coupled with an early career for Roger as a Horticulturist and Janettes' great love of animals. Roger also grew up on an acreage with a variety of farm animals. This enables us to turn our hand to whatever tasks are necessary to manage and maintain property, plants and animals. We are honest, resourceful, reliable and happy with our own company and enjoying the environment we find ourselves in. We enjoyed a circuit of Aus in 2017 featuring some wonderful house sitting in 3 states and also as a camp ground host on a small property. Resulting in endorsements from all the home owners.

Our intention is to do some shorter trips in 2020 incorporating house sitting if possible as we loved the opportunity to meet some wonderful home owners, spend time with some lovely animals and get to know and explore local communities in much greater depth. Rest assured we will look after your home and pets as if they were our own and respect your privacy. We are new to this site but can provide references from home owners across Australia whose homes and animals we have cared for.

Previous reference."Roger and Janette were absolutely perfect! They really took care of our place and animals well and were great at communicating ie pictures of happy pets! They also went beyond what was expected and worked hard to clean up our pool and help organise a pool technician to come out. really grateful that we were able to go on a 2 week holiday with great comfort that our house and pets were in good hands... and hopefully they had a nice stay too!"

Roger and Janette did a remarkable job looking after our dogs. We were quite apprehensive as our dogs are rescues and one of them is quite shy. Came back to two very happy dogs. I would not hesitate in recommending Roger and Janette to look after anyone's home. They're very house proud and looked after house and dogs extremely well They were highly communicative and we received emails with updates on our fur babies.

Roger and Janette Christie looked after the house and pets (2 dogs, 9 bird cages [one with new born chicks] and fish pond) while we were away for the first 16 days of February 2019. Pre visit communication was good and regular updates while we were away was great and very much appreciated. The house was clean and tidy upon our return. We would recommend Roger and Janette as reliable house sitters and would not hesitate in asking them back to house sit again.

Roger and Janette were lovely and did an excellent job looking after our dog Chip. Communication was easy and the house was spotless when we returned from our holiday. I would highly recommend them!
