About Susan

Hi!

We are a mature aged, professional couple who own a home in Byron Bay and love travelling and discovering new places!

We are both self-employed (David is a book publisher and Susan is a bookkeeper/BAS agent) and can work from home. We collectively have passions for books/knowledge, food, nature, travel, music, the arts - and animals!!

We were house-sitting continuously during 2019/2020 until Covid19 struck. We have looked after some truly beautiful homes, managed a luxury cattery, and gave an abundance of love, affection and great care to the many precious pets we had the privilege of living with.

We’ve gathered some wonderful references along the way as we love to go the extra mile for you and make sure you return home to a sparkling house and happy pets!

We have previously offered our spare room in Byron Bay on AirBnB and quickly achieved Superhost status. We have outstanding reviews from our guests who consistently rated us highly on the meticulously clean presentation of our home, and our warm, friendly, helpful attitude. We ensure that our guests have the best experience possible. The reviews are posted in our reference section.

It goes without saying that we would treat your home with the utmost care, and lavish loads of love and affection onto your furry darlings! We adore animals and are hoping that house/pet sitting will be able to fulfill our desires for both travel and animals simultaneously.

We are flexible with dates and locations and are willing to travel far and wide given the right circumstances.

If you’re looking for a happy, reliable, trustworthy, pet-loving couple who like to go the extra mile then please contact us to discuss your house/pet sitting needs.

We wish you all many happy holiday experiences and wonderful travel adventures and hope to meet you and your pets soon.

We recently managed a luxury cattery in Tasmania for 10 days whilst the owners where overseas. It was fully booked over the Easter period with 20 cats in residence. In addition to all of the cat care duties, we took care of all administration tasks including taking new bookings, check-ins and outs, payments and updating database on specialised software.

My partner and I both have recent police checks available for your perusal.

We have accumulated excellent references from all of the positions we have had to date, as well as several character references.

We have had experience caring for chickens.

I have previously volunteered with cat shelter Pets For Life.
