Otherwise majority of my bookings are now word of mouth, private arrangements both within Australia and overseas (Canada and New York mostly) I can provide multiple references to vouch!

“Of all the house sitters we have ever had (and we have had many), Barb has been the best by far. We came home to a clean home and fresh linen. All our animals - 2 horses, 3 chooks, 2 cats, the dog and the 3 fish tanks, were all happy and had been well cared for. We think they were all sad to see Barb go. We are already planning our next trip and are all too happy to move our travel dates to ensure we can get Barb again. ” Tony - Wyong, New South Wales - 27 Mar 2018

Barb has been absolutely amazing. We have received a photo of our cat every day while we were away for three weeks, which made us feel closer to him and also at ease that he is safe and having a good time.The house was spotless upon our return and Barb was happy to attend to our cat's needs, administering medication, playing with him and keeping him company. Our cat was content and happy and we feel that he made a new, close friend. We would be more than happy to recommend Barb for house and pet sitting and hope to have her back some day. Eternally grateful

From the moment I first chatted with Barb, I vibed with her warm and friendly nature. She took amazing care of my cats and my place. She sent updates while I was away, which was great. My apartment was spotlessly clean and exactly as I left it. The cats were totally content and happy. I would highly recommend Barb for your next housesit! LISA ( Ontario, Nov 2017) From House Sitters Canada Barbara is an amazing house sitter! She not only took a really good care of our cat Olive for two weeks but also of our apartment! We found it neat and tidy upon return. She was really reassuring and sent us several pictures of our furry friend. We highly recommend her and we would ask her anytime to come back.
