Happy Hurley in Hervey Bay

Kim and Mark house sat our 1 acre property in Hervey Bay Qld for 3 weeks and took great care of our home, gardens and most importantly, our dog Hurley. We highly recommend Kim and Mark, they are a lovely couple and their communication with us during our break was excellent. Kim and Mark also happily co-hosted our Air BnB cabin - our guests all wrote glowing reviews. We would love to have them house sit again in the future.

All is well on the Home Front

We can highly recommend Kim and Mark for any situation. They are both very easy to communicate with, and are very capable and resourceful. They took good care of our home, garden, and more importantly, our Kitties. Our sit always needs someone who has a sense of adventure, as it is a very very Greek island, and not a lot of english speakers...but Kim and Mark did just fine. I would gladly have them come again to our home.

Great Housesitters

Simon and I were more than happy with Kim and Mark, who looked after our pets and home, for a week in September 2019. They are a really great couple who obviously adore animals. 2 dogs and 3 cats with very different personalities and some medical issues proved a walk in the park for them. We arranged for them to meet some neighbours to ensure that help would be on hand, if needed and the feedback received from them, in our absence was really positive. In fact human and animal friendships were formed. Our home was looked after and returned to us in a clean and tidy way. It was nice to know, on leaving that they would respect our home and possessions. We would love to have them back for a longer period next time.

Kim and Mark were the perfect house-sitters. They really focussed on looking after our dogs and making them as happy and relaxed as could be - no easy task as my dogs are quite nervous and also need lots of exercise and stimulation. They also helped look after my horses, cat and hens. They were good at keeping in touch, asking for advice when circumstances changed but not overloading me with questions. I came home after a month away and found the animals happy and well and the house clean and tidy. They allowed me to enjoy my time away and to return to a happy, relaxed home. I would be very pleased to have them back to house-sit again.

Brilliant animalsitters

Kim and Mark were wonderful animal sitters. All my animals of which there are numerous. 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 goats chickens, ducks and fish were taken great care of. I have no hesitation in recommending Kim and Mark as sitters and I really hope they will return at some point to sit for me again.

Perfect Pet Sit

Kim was so lovely to have in our home. We had just moved into the property and I was anxious it would be comfortable for their stay. The dogs were perfectly cared for and the house left clean and tidy. We would not hesitate to recommend Kim for any pet sit.

Kim and Mark. Great sitters

We really appreciated Kim and Mark staying and looking after our dogs and old cat Moki. They were wonderful with our retrievers and we went away relaxed knowing that they were well cared for. Even when the youngest was pregnant (she just had 5 lovely puppies). We would love having them back and would recommend them to anyone. Grant and Greta

Great couple and excellent house sitters!

Kim and Mark are really great house sitters. They are friendly, honest and not only did they look after our home very well, they took such good care of our two cats, Molly and Daisy. We got on very well, they're very consciencious, flexible and lovely people. We can highly recommend Kim and Mark to look after your home and animals.
