About Tracey
" We would not hesitate to recommend Tracey and Kim as house sitters most warmly. They were exceptionally easy to deal with, flexible, caring and thoughtful. They obviously loved our pets and sent us regular photos of them while we were away along with notes on how they were doing. This was very much appreciated. When we got home, there was lovely food in the fridge and a framed photo of our pets on the wall". Harmony Kent Engand
"I can attest that they came with resounding references from others. Probably the most common theme was that they left the property in better condition than they found it. We can also confirm this in our case." Sandy. South Australia
We have been Pet and Home sitting for the past 6 years, we are in our earlier fifty’s, we are extremely trustworthy, very reliable, kind, honest, people, love animals and gardening. We will take care of your Pets and Home as if they were our own.
Experienced animal lovers, we have cared for and owned over the years, Scratch a talented black and white cat, was our last pet at home, what a character, he would knock on the front door knocker to come in (to lazy to come round to the cat flap), if we did not hear the faint tapping, Holly our dog alert us, and all the thanks Holly would get from Scratch was a hiss. We do miss them, but we have some wonderful memories.

Some of the pets we have cared for: Milly and Tippy two adorable dogs who live with 1 duck and 11 chickens, you had to be fast when collecting the eggs Tippy would always try to steal them. Riley a captivating Jack Russell who had the pleasure of caring for 3 time and who had sadly gone to pet heaven, she adored my husband Kim, his shadow. Barry, Blanch and Pretty three cats, who we have cared for twice, lovable mischief makers, with individual characters, Barry playful but reserved who bought us the odd live trophy, Pretty, loves snuggling up on the bed at night for cuddles, and all the attention she can get, Blanche shy likes her own space, but loves dribbling, while cuddling.
As home owners for over thirty years, and now landlords we understand how precious homes are and how important it is to have someone looking after the property who can be trusted implacably. We moved to Australia from the UK with our family over eleven years ago, bought a house in Adelaide where we lived for three years before moving to Queensland.
We have are currently travelling, home and pet caring, working part-time around Australia, and travel back to Kent England regularly to be with family.
Why I want to house-sit.
"Tracey & Kim sat our house for 5 mths while touring in our caravan. They looked after our property as if it was their own everything was spotless including the yard upon our return. Would have no hesitation in recommending them & wish them all the best for future house sits." Len & Julie Heritage Park, QLD
Our first house sit, "Kim and Tracey housesat for us twice in 2009 and 2010. We went away this year and tried to get them again, but they couldn't make it. They were excellent. In fact I thought they left our place better than when they moved in". Kathy. Northern Territory
We have a passion for travel and pets, we like to provide peace of mind to the home owner, knowing their house and/or pets are being taken care of while they are away. We have made many friends, who invite us back time and again. The experience being part of a community and exploring new locations.
House and pet sitting has enriched our loves, we do not have pets of our own, we love caring for other peoples pets, we have made lots of friends, while experiencing new locations.

What I bring to the assignment / relevant experience
"Tracey and Kim advised us on what we need to do before we went on holiday witched help us immensely and meant we had a stress free break .
Molly is sitting on my lap and wants to say she and Bradley had a fabulous time with you and Kim" Eleanor. Sandwich Kent, England
We have experience of looking after a property and dealing with any issue which may arise as homeowners. Caring for our own pets over the years, Cats, dogs, birds. And now with over six year of House and Pet sitting, we have looked after ducks and chickens too.
We are both house proud and enjoy gardening, tending the veggie plot and looking after the odd Vineyard, helping with pruning, picking Oranges and avocados. Taking care of Banana plants, looking after spas and swimming pools. We have house-sat for two couples three times, one couple twice, and five other couples.
