Phil and Katrina

68, Retired

63, Retired

We are a fit married couple from Australia (Phil originally from Aberdeen) who are available for house sitting from mid April till September. We have carried out several house sitting jobs in the past, which we have thoroughly enjoyed. Looking forward to doing more. We enjoy meeting new people and caring for their lovable pets.

We both have current National Police Certificates and Katrina has Working with Vulnerable Children Card.

We have always had dogs, big and small, and cats as pets. We have also cared for dogs in our own suburban home and looked after our fur guests with lots of love and care. (Let me tell you about the 18yo deaf maltese tx that hated everyone but came to love us.
And the mother chihuahua and 4 two week old pups, that we were caring for. She was displaying very subtle symptoms that we thought weren't quite right and were able to get her to the vet in time!
We are very clean and tidy and very respectful of people's homes. Your home, your rules - of course!

Our references are directly linked thu the association between Housesitters UK/Aussie Housesitters. (So verifiable πŸ™‚)

Profile pics are some of the dogs and cats we have house sat in other people's homes or cared for at our place.

Highly recommend Katrina & Phil for house sitting. It was easy to communicate with them both, before and during my time away. I came home to very happy pets. Charlie was walked several times a day & shared lots of cuddles. My house was left in a spotless condition with bedding washed. It was a pleasure to meet these lovely people. πŸΆπŸˆβ€β¬›

Katrina and Phil were the perfect house sitters! We returned to the house in a better condition than we left it with all animals and plants well cared for. Their communication was excellent. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in the future
SALLY (East Tamworth NSW, Dec 2022 - 1 week 3 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Katrina and Phil are lovely people and good housesitters. They were comfortable with the uncertain nature of our dates and accommodating and easy to get along with. They were good with all the pets and their idioacyncratic ways and very good with Basil who can be tricky but Katrina particularly won him over and he allowed a few pats! Thanks for slotting in to our housesit!

Thanks Phil & Katrina, it was an absolute blessing having you both care for Frankie & my home. If you are looking for a no fuss couple with great communication respectful, caring, clean & tidy then don't scroll past these guys. I would have them back anytime. I received photos & updates on all the fun my Frankie Girl was having with both of them during the 11 days Frankie was in their care, and returned to a clean tidy home with all my plants & gardens alive & well. Yes!! I would highly ... MORE

I loved having Katrina and Phil staying for the house sit! I came home to happy animals and a spotless home. They were amazing on flexibility and time and organisation. Could not recommend them enough. If they want to come back to Herberton they will be welcomed in my home anytime.

We may knock on your door next year! Thanks Jeany x
Katrina and Phil are exceptional house sitters, Thank you for looking after our dog and the property at such short notice. Roxy enjoyed your stay, and what a treat you gave her taking her to the beach and on walks, She barked through the window as you left. The house was left in better order than we left it in a rush. I am very happy the garden was watered as things dry out here very quickly. We wish you well on your travels and welcome you to stay if you are passing through.
