We are a fit and active, non smoking retired couple. We have been house sitting for about 10 years but mainly in Australia, where it is very popular. We have cared for dogs,cats,poultry,horses,cattle and goats. We especially love rural properties. We have a house in Nantwich Cheshire Our eldest son lives in Australia we also have 2 sons in Nantwich and 1 in Whitchurch so house sitting gives us the ideal opportunity to visit them all but not impact on their lives to much. and satisfy our love of travelling and exploring different areas. We are honest and reliable and you could rest assured that we would treat your pets with love and your home with respect.

Jackie and Tony are brilliant! Absolutely perfect sitters in every way. Chickens were very well looked after and our dogs loved them - so much so, Jackie & Tony are coming back again! I can't recommend them highly enough.
TRACY (Saltburn-by-the-Sea England, Jun 2022 - 7 days)
Thank you so much for your good review. Looking forward to coming back x
Jackie and Tony were great house sitters. They looked after our home and cats very well and we would not hesitate to recommend them.
VALERIE (Wootton, Woodstock England, Jul 2023 - 2 weeks)
This was the first time we have used House Sitters and had an excellent experience and would most definitely recommend this. We met Jackie and Tony a few hours before we left to go on holiday and had dinner with them. They are a very nice couple, extremely easy to get on with and both myself and my husband immediately felt very comfortable and happy with them staying in our house and looking after our dog. When we returned back from holiday our house was very nice and tidy and clean. Tony had ... MORE
CAROLYN (Shaftesbury England, May 2023 - 2 weeks)
We are very grateful to Tony and Jackie for their care of our house and most importantly our much-loved animals. Our dogs were happy on our return and had clearly been well looked after. Their communication with us whilst we were away was just fabulous, including a candid photo of Tony with the dogs, which made his care obvious. A helpful job was done on our chook yard too, meaning the door opens properly - thanks Tony!! Highly recommend.
CAMERON (MOUNT ELIZA VIC, Jan 2023 - 3 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Jacqui and Tony were lovely. Very much the perfect sitters. Came home to very happy animals and an extremely clean home. Would highly recommend them both :)
KODIE (Wollert VIC, Dec 2022 - 4 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Tony and Jacqui were warm and lovely. They sent a few photos whilst we were away and communicated with us well. We came home to a clean home and happy cats. I would have them back any time.
TARA (Pakenham VIC, Dec 2022 - 3 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
We usually plan months in advance for sitters, we booked a late, short notice trip and contacted Jacqueline and Tony 3 or 4 weeks prior to out trio and they instantly agreed to sit for us. We spoke with them on the phone to confirm, they were very friendly, jolly and we felt comfortable with them. Their sit was a short 5 night stay and we think they enjoyed our home and area, the house was as clean/tidy as we left it, which is important to us. The cats were happy and that is even more ... MORE
ANNIE (Mappleborough Green England, Oct 2022 - 5 days)
It was a pleasure having Jackie and Tony here. They looked after the house and dogs very professionally which was very reassuring. The dogs were very chilled and happy on our return and the house was left very tidy. Very happy to recommend them.
NICK (Aynho England, Sep 2022 - 4 nights)
Thank you for your kind reference. It was a real pleasure and we would be happy to return.
Thank you so much to Jackie and Tony for looking after our home and our cat. We had such a relaxed holiday knowing they were here. Would highly recommend them for house sitting! xxx
BRONWYN (Crowthorne England, Aug 2022 - 1 week 2 days)
Thank you for your lovely review and your very kind gift
Jackie and Tony were great house sitters. They looked after my 2 horses well and sent updates while we were away. House was cleaner and tidier than when we left! Highly recommended.
HELEN (Pant, Oswestry Wales, Aug 2022 - 1 week 3 days)
Thank you for your very nice review and your very kind gift x
Jackie and partner came and stayed at our home and looked after our energetic collie dog, Thorin, for a few weeks back in July. We came back to a clean and tidy house and a happy dog. Within an hour of arriving they had called our dog Dumbo, insinuated my 1 year old baby was fat, mocked the home-made food we cooked for them on arrival and got no incling what so-ever that this was an experience of mutual respect and interest. We came home to very clean house, but furniture and toys belonging ... MORE
SOPHIE (Melrose Scotland, Jul 2022 - 2 weeks 3 days)
Tony called your dog doggo not dumbo as when we first arrived he forgot his name. I certainly did not refer to your baby as fat! and surely you didn't expect us to sit for 3 weeks surrounded by toys without tidying and moving some out of our way.
No rating Jackie and Tony were the perfect sitters for our lap cat. Beau can be standoffish but took to them both immediately and was spoilt from the start. I'm not sure he even noticed we had gone !! They were very accommodating with the arrangements, keeping us up to date from the time we booked until they arrived. (They were housesitting in Australia at the time of booking). We would be delighted to have them sit again.
MARION & RALPH (St Fagans Wales, Jun 2022 - 1 week 3 days)
We felt completely confident leaving our home and 2 dogs in their capable hands. We came back to 2 happy dogs and a clean house. Tony even fixed a dodgy kitchen drawer for us! Thanks is both
FIONA (Tintern Wales, Jun 2022 - 4 nights)
Jackie and Tony looked after our two small dogs whilst we were away for almost 3 weeks. They came to meet us prior to the housesit which was great, we were able to go through everything with them without the usual panic of time running out before leaving for the airport! We returned to happy dogs, garden and pots watered and healthy. We can happily recommend Jackie and Tony as reliable trustworthy housesitters.
HEATHER (Coln St Aldwyns England, Apr 2022 - 20 days)
Jackie and Tony are very highly recommended as great house sitters. They were friendly, kind, flexible and helpful (Tony even repaired/replaced a couple of locks!). Our house has a number of 'unique' or 'quirky' aspects with which they coped very well. They even put up with our vocal (rude) geese. Jackie offered to cook supper when we had to make a brief visit home for a night during their stay and lit a welcoming fire for us. They made the most of living in a new area and visited local ...

DAVID (Shrivenham England, Apr 2022 - 3 weeks)
Thank you for your excellent review Kind regards Jackie and Tony
Lovely people and we're fantastic with all our animals. Tony also did a great job fixing our verandah railing and fixing my sewing machine. Jaqui rescued my orchid too.
ALLEN (Whittlesea VIC, Feb 2022 - 4 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Thanks for your lovely review Meg x
Tony and Jacqui are amazing! Our dog loved them immediately and they took great care of him while we were away. The house and plants were in perfect order when we returned and we have only positive things to say about their house sitting for us. We really appreciated hearing an update from time to time as well. Thanks so much Tony and Jacqui!
T. BRANDON (Parkdale VIC, Jan 2022 - 2 weeks 6 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Jacqui and Tony looked after our house beautifully for our week away. Our two dogs were happy and relaxed when we returned and lots of little jobs had been done around the house! Can't recommend these lovely people enough.
SUZI (Bendigo VIC, Jan 2022 - One week) From Aussie House Sitters
Jackie and Tony are a lovely couple from England who looked after our house and cat while we were away for 8 nights in January. They responded to messages promptly and cared for our cat Harry very well. Jackie and Tony kept our garden well hydrated through a bit of a heatwave, which we are so thankful for, and they left the house in a lovely state too. I would highly recommend them to other people looking for sitters. Thank you Jackie and Tony!
DEANNE (Northcote VIC, Jan 2022 - 1 week 1 day) From Aussie House Sitters
Thank you for your excellent review. It was a pleasure taking care of Harry for you .
Tony and Jacqui were fantastic. The house was immaculate when we got home the dogs had obviously been spoiled and well cared and fed as per instructions. Tony even took it upon himself to adjust some paving that I had been putting off and waiting for my son to do. We are hoping that our schedules coincide so that they can come back and care for our home again. thanks Tony Jacqui.
BRENDEN (Dimboola VIC, Jan 2020 - 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Thank you so much for taking such great care of our animals and home. We came home to happy dogs, clean house and lots of little things fixed that I'd been meaning to do. Great handyman . Would recommend to anyone.
SHELLY (Emerald VIC, Dec 2019 - 4 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Tony and Jaqui house sat for us at short notice while we were on what was meant to be an 8 day trip. Communication from the first contact was always prompt , clear and reliable. Our dogs, alpacas and sheep were well cared for. The house was better than we left it with a wobbly kitchen tap and collapsing garage shelves now perfect. We had an unforeseen delay on our trip and they were able to extend their stay, which saved us a lot of hassle. Tony and Jaqui stayed with us the night before we ... MORE
CHRIS & JANETTE (Sedgwick VIC, Mar 2019 - 10 days) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Tony and Jackie were terrific house sitters. Friendly, easy going and good communicators. Tony is Mr. Handyman, so many little things were fixed when we got home including my washing machine handle!! The dog and cat were super relaxed, the garden was alive. I'd go away on purpose just to get Tony back to fix all those little jobs you never get to. I totally recommend having Tony and Jackie as your house sitters.
SERENA (Brighton East VIC, Jan 2018) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Jackie and Tony are a beautiful couple who house sat for us over the Christmas period for approx 3 weeks. They cared for our dogs like they were their own and really made us feel at ease by sending photo updates of the fur babies. Tony even fixed many things throughout our home and our garage, and popped on the ride on mower to keep the grass down, thanks Tony. What beautiful people these two are, lovely to have met them and of course would have them both back any time, in sure the dogs in ... MORE
KELLIE (Beaconsfield VIC, Dec 2017 - 2 weeks 3 days) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Lovely friendly people who looked after my two cats beautifully!
JIL (Red Hill South VIC, Dec 2017 - 1 week) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating HELLO, JAcqui and Tony came to look after my lively rescue dog and my daughters old labrador whilst I was in Spain for1wk. I left copious notes, went away and thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing holiday knowing both the dogs were in capable hands. On my return the house was immaculate, beds stripped and Tony had mended a garden chair and sorted a phone. Great sitters who offered to come again. What more can I say?
JEAN (NEWBURY , Sep 2017)
No rating Jackie and Tony looked after our dog, chickens, house and garden for two weeks in August 2017. They were friendly and capable and we felt confident about going away. On our return, everything was just so, bed changed, washing done, bathroom gleaming and the grass cut.etc Most importantly our dog Rocky was happy and had been well cared for. Thank you Jackie and Tony for sitting for us. Kath & Colin Thornton.
KATH (Kidderminster England, Jul 2017 - 2 weeks 4 days)
No rating Jackie and Tony are very kind people and excellent housesitters. Our cats and hens were extremely well cared for, as was the garden and greenhouse. They did everything we asked of them and we were confident in leaving our home and animals in their care. We would highly recommend them and hope that they can come and sit for us again in the future.
FRANK & HILARY (Lancaster England, Jun 2017 - 2 weeks 3 days)
No rating Jackie and Tony were great sitters. The animals were well cared for and happy when we returned, and the house was really neat and tidy. They did everything we asked of them and well. We would heartily recommend them to anyone. A very pleasant couple. t
SEAN AND MARY (Warrnambool VIC, Nov 2016 - 2 weeks 3 days) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Tony and Jackie , house sat for me for a whole month in February 2016. They did a great job loooking after all of my cats 13 of them, I did have a cleaner come in to help as it is a lot of work. They supervised the workers I had there. They kept my house perfectly clean and tidy and reported to me what was going on with the cats. Tony did lots of handyman jobs which he said he enjoyed. They are coming back again in February 2017. I would recommend them to anyone.
SHIRLEY (Kinglake VIC, Feb 2016 - 1 month 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Jackie and Hubby cared for our home and our 26 year old Ms Ole Puddy whilst we were away over Christmas. The house was immaculate on return and a few broken bits around the place were even fixed, including an electric gate that our daughter had backed into! We were stoked. A lovely genuine and honest couple we would highly reccomend and certainly use again with great peace of mind.
WARWICK & JEANNE (Ballarat East VIC, Dec 2015 - 1 week 5 days) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Very reliable and we came home to a house in better condition than we left. Would use them again.
VANESSA (Wattle Ponds NSW, Nov 2015 - 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Jackie and Tony are fantastic housesitters, they have sat for us twice now for our long summer holidays and we have booked them again for the end of 2016! Pets are wonderfully cared for as is the house and surrounds, would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone whether in a rural setting such as ours with farm animals or suburban, they easily fit into any surroundings.
AMANDA (Sunbury VIC, Dec 2014 - 2 weeks 6 days) From Aussie House Sitters

CHRISTINE (Sunbury, VIC, May 2014 - 1 week 5 days) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Tony and Jackie looked after our house and little dog, Bella, in November 2013 and I couldn't recommend them enough. The house was perfect upon our arrival home and our little girl was looked after first class. They are a lovely couple with very high living standards and I would have them in my home again and again. Regards Rhonda Edser
