Frangipani House - House Sits - House Sitting - Our Services
We love house sitting. We love home, yet we also love to travel, and we adore animals especially dogs.
So we've combined all our loves and that is what we do. We travel and stay in beautiful homes, and mind wonderful pets, house sitting for other people, while they travel.
We offer - We ask
As house sitters, we offer you the comfort of knowing that we will care for your home with a great deal of care and attention.
Types of homes we housesit
We live in a lovely home, and when we travel, we have fairly simple requirements... that your home is in a nice area, a pleasant place to stay, that it is clean, with a quiet bedroom with queen or king size bed. We ask that you supply internet access, and if possible, garage parking or off street parking.
Where we house sit:
We prefer areas near the water as we enjoy walking near the beach or areas around the harbour or river.
When house sitting we offer to:
Collect the mail
Water the garden/plants
Do basic upkeep for the pool
Give your home general everyday upkeep
Use our own mobile phones & computers
Offer to bring our own sheets and towels to use.
The types of animals we care for:
We specialise in caring for dogs and are very experienced with a wide range of breeds. If you have fish we can follow your instructions about how much food to sprinkle - but don't know about changing water etc.
What we ask for the pet we are minding:
We follow your requests for pet walks - where your pet likes to go.
We make sure their treats are given when you would like that.
We can take pets to the groomers if you would like us to while you are away.
We have a lot of experience with and can look after elderly pets.
We ensure that they have lots of cuddles, and chats.
We give doggies massage to help them with any stress of being away from you.
We make sure their flea control is given when it is due.
View pictures of your pet on our blog
so that you can see their adventures while you are away.
If you like we can email you some pictures of their time with us.
Updates via Viber a free (worldwide) text service if you would like.
We ask that the pets are flea controlled and clean, that all their food is supplied, treats etc ready for them. Vets: please let the vet know that you will be away and who we are, please organise with them how fees will be paid for prior to your trip - we do not cover vet fees. If your dog is large, likes to go to doggie beaches swim and get sandy, we ask to use your car to take it to and fro for exercise - please make sure that we are covered in your car's insurance policy.
House Sits - Bookings:
Arrival dates - Departure Dates
As we live on the mid north coast of NSW, we need to factor that into arrival and departure times.
We can discuss this with you when we book a time. It takes us around 5 hours to drive to Sydney,
around 7 hours to drive to the Gold Coast Queensland. We are happy to fly to your home, if you can leave your car for us to drive.
Depending on your departure/arrival home times, if we need to stay at a B&B prior to or after the house sit, we ask you to cover this fee.
Most B&B's we've found have a two night minimum stay.
Emergency return... if you decide to, or need to return home early, and we need to find accommodation elsewhere urgently,
we charge a fee of $350 to cover two days accommodation.
