Peace of mind carers

Retired Executive Assistant

Retired IT Manager

Hello, we are a retired professional couple who have worked and lived in both the UK and Australia. Whilst we own our own home in Australia, we now share our time 50/50 between both countries as we have very precious family members in both.

We have used house sitters for our own pets over the years and recognise how important it has been for us, so for some time now we've been thrilled to assist people like yourselves to have a relaxing peace of mind break, knowing your precious ones and home are looked after.

We absolutely understand how very precious your animal family members are to you and would be thrilled to take the very best of care of them and your home and provide peace of mind for you as you head off on your holiday/away time.

We have many years of experience looking after dogs and cats of our own, from the youngest of kittens and pups to elderly pets with needs, including medical. We've also been the happy owners of chickens, rabbits, sheep and fish, and if there is a new pet for us to care for, that's exciting!

We have also renovated our homes over the years so we are very practical when it comes to home maintenance if that need arises.

A little bit about us... We love to walk, practice yoga, we are keen gardeners and we thoroughly enjoy exploring new places and help out where and when we can.

We are very flexible in the locations that we can be in so if you are needing genuine carers for your precious pet/s and home, we'd very much like to chat with you about this.

Kind regards
Meredith & Richard

I would have given Meredith and Richard 10 stars, they were wonderful! I had regular communication with them while I was away and felt absolutely happy that my 2 cats were getting lots of love and were being well looked after. There was a heatwave whilst I was away and they must have spent many hours watering the garden because, despite the heat and no rain, all the plants looked fantastic. I also came back to a clean and tidy house and 2 very happy cats. I would not hesitate to recommend ... MORE

Thank you Meredith and Richard for staying at ours and taking care of our cat! Marlo has cerebellar hypoplasia and despite not requiring much special care, she can be feisty! We wanted someone who could respect her space and give her time to warm up to strangers - Meredith and Richard were just perfect for her! We felt that Marlo was very well-looked after, and we received frequent updates while we were away. Our home was sparkly clean when we returned and we could not thank Meredith and ... MORE

Both Meredith and Richard are an absolute joy to communicate with and I have no hesitation in recommending them for any future sits. Their care and responsibility of my home and my baby dog was first class.
KELVIN (Somerton Park SA, Jan 2023 - 1 week) From Aussie House Sitters
It was an absolute pleasure to have Meredith and Richard sit for me. My cat, Rose. was cared for in the best manner, and it was of great comfort to me that I was kept informed of her progress while away. I am very grateful she was so well looked after. The garden was kept watered in the heat, pot plants expertly cared for and the house was immaculate when I returned. Meredith is an excellent communicator and it was easy to make arrangements. I found her very considerate with all things ... MORE

Oh Meredith and Richard! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND these wonderful humans - the best home and pet sitters! They kept us updated with lovely stories about Nyah and her adventures, they really bonded which was so special. The house was perfect when I arrived home, I so appreciated their care and kindness and attention to detail in the house and garden. Absolute stars!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thank you for spending this time with Nyah, she really missed you when you left xx
MELISSA (Brunswick East VIC, Dec 2022 - 1 week) From Aussie House Sitters
This was the first time I'd ever left my house and pet in the hands of a housesitter. Meredith and Richard immediately put me at ease regarding the whole process through their great communication. I immediately felt like they would do a fantastic job at looking after Steve and the house and they did. They kept me up to date with how Steve was doing and I really appreciate that they were on hand when I needed someone to access the garden whilst I was away. I came home to a lovely tidy house and ... MORE

Meredith & Richard were a pleasure to host! Communication throughout was very easy, making set up and the housesit run very smoothly. I must say our house was left in fantastic condition, and over and above our expectation. Our cat was lovingly cared for and had plenty of attention - we can tell this because he was not sulking on our return :) I would 100% recommend them as sitters and be happy to host them again - a wonderful, respectful, and trustworthy couple.

Meredith and Richard were ideal sitters. The communication before and during the sit was prompt and useful. The house was lovely and clean on our return, and Lola was happy. The flowers and wine left for us were a pleasant surprise. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Garden Maintenance

Green garden!

Make sure the garden and pot plants are thriving when you get back - get a house sitter.
