Introduction

We're an active retired married couple foot loose and fancy free, our children now grown up. We have experience as house sitters. We are non smokers and only occasional drinkers.We are quiet and clean and would be pleased to come and meet you if location and time allowed before the house sit.

Why I want to housesit

We started house sitting so that we could spend a couple of months in the winter in the Australian sunshine without the expense of renting a villa. We wanted to get to know an area thoroughly rather than do a whistle stop tour.The benefits were enormous, we met neighbours, went to BBQ's, parties and dinners and truly learned about the culture and locals. We hate staying in hotels because of the impersonal nature and the noise from other guests. We like to cook our own food (it is a hobby of mine) sit and read a book and take life easy. We also know the benefit of exercise and walking your dog would be our pleasure. We like the daily variety offered to us by feeding and caring, playing and loving your pets.

What I bring to the assignment / relevant experience

We are home owners. It almost goes without saying, but we wish to emphasise that we would leave your home as we found it and care for your pets as our children.

In all we've done five house sits. Lou Ann and Geoff twice, their friends Janine and Lance, Jay and Sharon - all in Austraila and Xan in Oxford, UK.

Neighbours of Lou Ann Geoff have not been able to add a reference to this website but this is what they say about us.We are the neighbours of Geoff and Louanne, in Western Australia. If you contact us we can send you their email.

Paul and Jill Champion have been their house sitter on two occasions. The Bottomleys have left their 5 acres property with dogs, cats, alpacas, vegetable garden and a very large house to their excellent care for long periods of time. Geoff, Louanne and the 3 children have returned to their home being in tip top condition and a little enhanced by Paul’s handy capabilities as a fix it man and Jill’s bottling up from the vegetable patch. They are very affable and we met Jill most morning walking the dogs and had them over on several occasion for a BBQ. Paul and Jill have done such a wonderful job on each occasion that we would love them to come and do the same for us. We just can’t convince them to come to Australia in our winter so we can visit the UK in the summer. We could thoroughly recommend the Champions to anyone wishing their home to be in good hands while they are away.

    Jill & Paul house-sat for us for 10 days in Feb 2012 and took great care of our 2 x labrador crosses. Our dogs were so comfortable with them, they were ready to jump in the car and go with them when they left. Jill and Paul communicated via email several times prior to the stay and we felt very comfortable with them, even before meeting them. We found them to be tidy, organised and very pleasant. They even welcomed us home with a nice home cooked meal which was nice. We would highly recommend Jill & Paul to anyone looking for house/pet-sitters and would gladly welcome them back in an instant.

    Having known Jill and Paul for a number of years now, I can confirm without doubt that you could not leave your home or pets in safer hands. Conscientious, caring and totally trustworthy they always go that extra mile – nothing is too much trouble; problem-solving (fast!) is Jill’s speciality and Paul can turn his hand to practically anything. If you are looking for organised, efficient, adaptable, hands-on and genuinely kind-hearted sitters, then look no further….

    Jill and Paul have sat twice for us and in that time we have found them to be honest and reliable as well as falling in love with our pets and taking great care of them and our house and garden while we were on holiday. We have no hesitation in recommending them to you

    Jill and Paul are a delightful couple who not only took on our 2 dogs,2 cats and 5 chickens but also our large garden full of produce in a heat wave.
    They picked and froze fruit and vegetables and we returned to find a more organised and cleaner house than when we had left with happy and settled animals.
    We hope they might sit for us again!
