We couldn't have asked for a better house sitter than Simon. As soon as we met him we felt we could trust him to look after our home as we would. Simon kept in touch and let us know what was happening throughout our 3 months away. What a delight to return home to a fridge stocked with enough food to last us a few days. We were truly touched by this thoughtful gesture. The house was spotless and the garden well maintained despite the horrible Queensland drought. We would be happy to highly ... MORE

Simon was an excellent sitter, looking after our little dog with the greatest care. The house was well kept and the garden was still alive and thriving, when we returned. Everything was clean and neat with food in the fridge for us that was very welcome after a long flight.
CHRISTOPHER AND JUDITH (Maleny QLD, Jun 2019 - 1 month 3 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
This was the first time we had used a house sitting service and my husband and I were very happy with the outcome. We were away for four months and needed someone to commit to that period. Simon was an effective communicator both before and during the sit and we felt confident that our property was in good hands. Simon's positive response and 'can do' attitude were very reassuring and translated into a spotless house and very tidy garden on our return. Although we strictly speaking don't have ... MORE

Simon was everything we needed in a house sitter and more. His main task was caring for my extensive gardens especially my roses. He did an amazing job and we will ask him back again as our home was clean and neat just as we left it. Thanks Simon .
MARGARET (Redridge QLD, Oct 2018 - 2 weeks 6 days) From Aussie House Sitters
On this occasion I had a long house sit and I am so pleased Simon was taking care of things. He was very responsive to communication. Obviously took good care of our dog and was persistent when finding a couple of water leaks. Highly recommend Simon as a sitter. Thankyou Simon.

No rating Simon proved to be reliable and took good care of our house and garden. Kept in touch whilst we were away for two months and thoughtfully left us milk , bread and supper for our return. I think Simon is honest and trustworthy and would be happy to recommend him.
JANET (Blackbutt QLD, Jan 2018 - 2 months 1 week) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating I would like to highly recommend Simon who recenctly house sat our home over the xmas and new year break 2017 while we went on our 14 day cruise to New Zealand. We came home to a clean home and lawned mowed and the garden looking great. As this was the first time we have used a Aussie House Sitter. Thank you Simon I hope we can booked you again next year.
KATHY AND DOUG (North Toowoomba QLD, Dec 2017 - 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Simon looked after my home, cat and veggie garden for three days on very short notice. Clear, honest communicator and left my home clean and tidy. Even washed sheets and remade bed. Thankyou so much Simon.
DEBORAH (Goodna QLD, Sep 2017 - 3 days) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating I must admit I was a little apprehensive about Having my first ever sitter but Simon was so easy to get along with that made leaving uncomplicated. Simon was very respectful of my house and looked after my dog very well, so well that I think he was actually sad to see me come home! I came home to a very clean and tidy house and I would highly recommend Simon for any sit.
SANDRA (Gympie QLD, Aug 2017 - 3 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating We came home to very happy fur babies and a wonderfully maintained home. We would highly recommend Simon and maybe he would be our first choice if we needed another sitter in the future
RHONDA AND JOHN (Balgal Beach QLD, Jul 2017 - 2 months) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Simon has been house sitting for us since Febuary and has been doing everything he can to keep our house in top shape as we are or were trying to sell our property. He has kept our gardens & lawn very neat and tidy. The house has been spotless, as well as working with our sales agent to enable potential buyers to inspect the house. He has done a great job, we would recommend him to anyone. Thank you.
DARRYL (Mystic Sands QLD, Feb 2017 - 2 months) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Simon has been absolutely excellent. He was able to deal with our large garden over an extended dry period and it survived. Nothing was a problem for him to deal with. Will have him back in a heartbeat. Thanks very much Simon
ROB&LYN (Closeburn Brisbane QLD, May 2016 - 8 months) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating It was great to come home to a clean & tidy house & yard and especially, two very happy dogs who were obviously well looked after while we were away. Thank you Simon!
BRONWYN, GLENN, LOCKY & WILLOW (Hervey Bay QLD, Mar 2016 - 1 month 1 week) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Very happy to have Simon take care of our home and our very excitable dog Max. Simon was prompt in arriving and very accommodating with our needs for Max. We returned home to find a very happy dog and well cared for home. More than happy to have Simon sit for us again.
WENDY (Cooloola Cove QLD, Feb 2016 - 1 week 1 day) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating I am happy to recommend Simon as a house sitter. My dogs were well cared for and I found him to be both pleasant and reliable.
JILL (Buderim QLD, Nov 2015) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Simon was a revelation. We entered the house sitting experiment with some trepidation not knowing what to expect. Simon settled in perfectly in the hour we had together before setting off for a month, then looked after our property and German Shepherd perfectly. In particular our dog is 'unique', but Simon and he bonded well and it was clear upon our return both had enjoyed their time together. Put simply there is nothing negative to say about Simon looking after our property. We highly ... MORE
PETER AND GENEVIEVE (Batons Hill Brisbane, Jul 2015) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating I was thrilled beyond words to come home to find my house in tip top shape, the gardens blooming and lawns mowed. The dog delighted with his walks and the fish and the birds content in their surroundings. There was even an unopened litre of milk left in the fridge for my coffee when I returned after the shops had closed. Thank you so much Simon! You have my highest recommendation.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
