Welcome to Our House Sitting Profile
Hi we are Nat & Jodie, full-time international house sitters since early 2013. Originally from
Australia, we now travel the world looking after people's pets and homes while they are away. 

This is a lifestyle we know we are born to do, evidenced by the fact that we have enjoyed
over 97% back-to-back house sits since 2013. And yes we always take house sits with pets
where we can... they are THAT important to us! 

We work online each day, so that does mean we need good, high speed and preferably 
unlimited internet. It also means we will be home with your fur babies nearly the entire time,
giving them loads of cuddles and love.

Also, we travel full-time so we will not have a vehicle at your sit. If you have a car that you
could make available to us during our stay that would be super appreciated.
Our Backgrounds
Jodie spent over a decade Managing Resorts & Apartment Hotels in prime destinations around Australia.
Nat enjoyed 13 years in the Australian Federal Police. Seven years of that was spent in VIP Protection looking after the Australian Prime Minister, the Immigration Minster, and Heads of Government & Royalty from all over the world. 
**Your privacy and the security of your home and possessions are of utmost important for us. 
Nat also held a 'Top Secret' security clearance for many years.

Jan 2018   Southport, Gold Coast Australia
Looking after Poppet and Cashew
"Nat and Jodie house-sat for us in Southport for two weeks in January 2018. Their responsibilities included looking after our two dogs & ensuring a wide range of indoor and outdoor plants stayed alive in an especially hot summer & with very specific requirements.

Nat and Jodie went above and beyond what we expected of house sitters. They quickly developed a bond with our ‘high needs’ dogs –
a needy Jack Russell (Cashew) and an elderly miniature dachshund (Poppet). The dogs were happy and healthy on our arrival home and clearly did not want their new friends to leave!

Our house had been meticulously cleaned and was absolutely spotless on our return. We were grateful that all of our plants    were in excellent condition – even one that we had left in a          not-so- healthy condition. The fridge was stocked with essentials and there was a present (monster trucks!) for our little boy.

There were no issues with the car that we had made available
for the ladies to use.

If there was one downside to having Nat and Jodie look after our house it is that they have set the bar so high it will be very difficult for any other house-sitters to live up to our expectations. Hopefully they will be available to do all of our house-sits in the future!

We have no hesitation in recommending Nat and Jodie to
anyone considering them to take care of their house and pets.

They are friendly, reliable, all-round decent people. We wish the ladies all the best with their future travels and business aspirations, and hope to catch up with them in the not-too-distant future."

Looking after crazy cats, Jagger & Seven
We were fortunate to have Nat & Jodie house sit from 1 February 2018- 26 March 2018.

This is the first time we have used house sitters and we found right from our first conversation on the phone with them that they put us at ease and we felt very comfortable with the process.

Our two cats took a liking to them at once, one of the cats being on the timid side didn’t take anytime at all to acquaint herself with them.

While we were away Nat & Jodie sent us text messages with updates on how everything was going which for us was very reassuring.

On our return we found our garden was thriving even though rainfall while we were away was pretty much none existent. Our home sparkled it was so lovely and clean and tidy and the cats and chooks had been well looked after.

We have no hesitation at all in recommending Nat & Jodie to you. If you would like to know more please contact us on the above phone number.

Looking after Harry, the Maltese Terrier
Nat & Jodie were referred to me from friends and it was great that they took the time to come and meet me prior to the house sit as they were in the area sitting already. From our first meeting I felt immediately comfortable with them, and so did Harry, which is a big thing as he can be standoffish with strangers. 

I was spending a number of weeks away in Europe, part of which was trekking where I would not be contactable. 

I felt totally assured all would be fine in my absence, and loved getting updates in locations where I was able to receive them. I could easily see that Harry was being well looked after and enjoying his 'holiday' with new friends too!

I returned to a beautifully kept house and garden, and the car was immaculate inside and out, all very much appreciated after a big trip. It meant I could just get back into life and sorting myself out, and not have to worry about anything at home. 

I would have Nat and Jodie back at any time... they are wonderful people.  

May - Sept 2018   Evandale Tasmania Australia
Looking after Tooie and Dolly, the Birman cats
We engaged Nat and Jodie to do our housesit at short notice for 4 months during winter in Tasmania. We have two Birman cats. Nat arrived first while Jodie finished up with the house sit they were on at the time in Queensland. We left on our adventure the following day.

During our time away, they both tackled problems they encountered in their stride. They would always contact us with any issues to get either advice or let us know how things were going. The cats both settled well in our absence and Nat and Jodie enjoyed their interaction with them which included lots of cuddles and play time.

My husband and I both felt very comfortable in leaving our house and cats in their care. On our return, the house was spotless. The difficult yard was also well maintained and very tidy - I would even suggest that it was better kept than what we do ourselves!!

We were cooked a lovely breakfast when we arrived home which was very much appreciated. We have no hesitation in recommending Nat and Jodie for any housesit they apply for. We feel very privileged that we were able to offer our house to them given that they normally do international house sitting on a very professional level.

We wish them well in the future and may they visit many more exotic and exciting places in the world of house sitting.

Looking after Arthur, the Groodle (a very large one!)
Arthur pined for them for days after they left...

Arthur is our massive Groodle that is only 3 years old... he has huge amounts of energy and loves people. 

From the moment Jodie and Nat drove down 2 hours from Launceston to meet with Arthur and us prior to the sit, I knew they would be the best sitters. 

Arthur warmed to them immediately and their own playful energy really shone through. They were diligent with their questions and what they needed to know... the signs of very professional sitters who know what they are doing. 

During our 5 weeks away I was not disappointed! I was sent photos of them with Arthur at the beach, at the park, walking out the back reserve area... he was totally spoilt for company and attention.

Upon our return, our house was immaculate and the garden in great shape. We really could not have wanted for anything better in our sitters. 

We would recommend Nat and Jodie to anyone, and would love them to see them back again at our place anytime! 

Oct 2018   Melbourne, Victoria Australia
Looking after Lexi the Staffy
We needed someone to look after out staffy Lexi and found Nat and Jodie on Happy House Sitters.

After a Skype meet and greet we felt very comfortable to have them stay. They took wonderful care of our home and Lexi, and kept us fully informed and updated on their daily adventure.

We returned home to a very clean and tidy house and a very happy dog.

We can say that Nat and Jodie are very trustworthy and reliable. We would most certainly love to utilise their availability again if they were ever back to visit Melbourne.

Looking after Keiko the cat
Nat and Jodie were my first formal house/cat sitters. I was very unsure about having a house sitter and had actually decided to cancel my advert at the time their application arrived. 

I went through with a video chat meeting unsure if I would proceed, but from this meeting I felt reassured that Nat and Jodie were genuine and trustworthy. We arranged the details of the sit and communicated regularly leading up to the date which was even more reassuring. 

Due to date bookings I had already left when they arrived, but I got immediate picture and text updates. Throughout the sit it was lovely to get regular photos and updates of Keiko (apparently not missing me in the slightest!). 

Nat & Jodie picked me up from the airport on my arrival home, and despite it being the first time we had met face to face it was lovely to be greeted home with a smile and a hug and a bit like meeting an old friend. 

The house of course was spotless, and literally everything was exactly how I had left it (down to the fruit bowl!). Keiko was very happy & healthy. 

I’d have no hesitation in recommending Nat & Jodie, and would even try to book my holidays around their ability to house sit again!

Looking after Pebbles & Peanut the Toy Poodles, Gerty the Chihuahua, and 2 cats Kinta & Kammi.
We just knew that Nat and Jodie were the perfect house sitters for us from the minute we read their wonderful profile! 

Although we hate to admit it, we are those very particular (weirdo) pet owners who have a hard time leaving their pets to go on holiday. Also, as we both work in the animal industry, we have particularly high standards and have animals that have been rescued and come with specifically unique requirements. Therefore, it was very hard to leave our trust in anyone to look after our furkids as well as we do. 

In saying that, we had booked a cruise and knew we had to leave our 5 furkids (3 dogs & 2 cats) with someone while we were away. Nat and Jodie did not disappoint! From our initial contact with them, they were quick to reply and set up a skype chat so we could all get to know one another face to face. They organised to come a day before we left (which is genius) so they can see our pet's routines, feeding, environment, play, etc and get to know us a little more before we left. It gave us huge peace of mind to be able to see the girls playing and handling our furkids confidently in the flesh. 

Knowing our kids were in the best hands, we excitedly left for our cruise. With limited internet access while we were away, it was wonderful to receive photos and updates at each port or when we could snatch a little wifi. The girls sent us lovely photos and videos of the furkids doing their usual crazy antics (like sleeping upside down in bed and snoring so loud you can't sleep!) so we just knew they were well and truly being spoiled. Not only did they excel in caring for our furkids but they also looked after our house and garden, keeping our plants alive in over 40 degrees heat while we were away. The house was immaculate when we got home and they even left us a little parting gift. 

We have nothing but good things to say about Nat and Jodie and their house sitting skills and happily recommend them to anyone. We certainly hope to get them back in the future but know they are pretty steadily booked out and can understand why. 

Thanks again Nat and Jodie and best wishes on your world wide house sitting adventures.

Looking after 3 cats - Molly, Pukie & Rosie
Nat and Jodie spent a couple of weeks looking after my three cats, one of which can be high medical needs. I came home to three very happy cats .. calm, relaxed and almost not having missed me when I was away. I would highly recommend them – both as pet and house sitters (I suspect the house was cleaner and tidier that when I left).

A Few Highlighted References
2013   South West France
"Jodie and Nat came to housesit for us from April to August 2013. They had a lot of responsibility as our home is a large house with considerable grounds, and we also asked them to look after our three large dogs (two Bernese Mountain Dogs and a Husky X) as well as to manage our staff. 

In addition they took care of several groups of guests who came to stay in our luxury holiday accommodation. 

We chose Jodie and Nat from many dozens of applicants because their joint experience in hospitality and security seemed to be the perfect fit for our home. On interviewing them on Skype, their warm personalities and intelligence shone through and we jumped at the chance to take them on. 

It was evidently a good decision, for Jodie and Nat fulfilled the role magnificently and in fact far exceeded our expectations. 

We had an enormous list of instructions, which they followed to a T. When things happened outside of our enormous list, they dealt with each issue professionally and successfully, keeping us informed at all times. 

Our dogs were loved and kept happy and healthy, our newly renovated home was exactly as we had left it 4 months earlier (even all the cutlery, saucepans and plates were in the same places, I don't know how they managed it!), our guests and staff were very happy (in fact they adored them!), and everything had been meticulously managed. 

I was nervous about having people live in our home as we have just finished a 5-year renovation, and our house is full of rare furniture including centuries old antiques and unusual contemporary items and even our kitchen was only recently fitted, but I had no need to worry as everything was kept safe and in order. My houseplants, Im shamed to admit, look far healthier now than when I left. There is not a scratch or even a broken plate. 

We are both truly astounded at the amazing job Jodie and Nat did and would have them back in a flash. 

I believe they are our 6th house-sitters (we've employed both professional caretakers and Trusted House Sitters) and they have been by far the best. 

If you are considering taking them on as house-sitters, I would snap them up as I doubt you will find anyone to compare. They are such warm and loving characters, and we are delighted to say that we now consider them our friends and look forward to watching their lives blossom online."

"Jodie & Nat came to house sit for us at our home in Barbados for 7 weeks whilst we visited 
friends and family back in the UK. They are both lovely warm, friendly people with a great sense of humour and extremely high standards and we can only add to the amazing and
well deserved references they already have. 

Jodie and Nat didn't disappoint, they were brilliant. 

We came back to an immaculate, house,
 garden, pool and car which we know is no easy task in this very difficult tropical climate and 
more importantly our beloved cats had clearly been very well looked after and were very 
contented and happy. Jodie and Nat even cooked us dinner the night before we left and 
again on our return which was really lovely.

Our holiday was enjoyable because we had peace of mind knowing everything was being
taken care of. Jodie and Nat kept in regular contact with us by email and even sent us
photos of our 'furry friends'. 

We certainly cannot recommend them highly enough and very much hope they will return 
next year to look after our home and pets once more."

"I had the opportunity to watch Natalie and Jodie in action before engaging them to
housesit for us. They took care of the neighbors dogs for two months last year. Since my
house overlooks the neighbors, I had a chance to see them taking the dogs out in all types
of weather ( Colorado mountains in April and May can throw a lot of snow, rain, wind and everything else at you). 

They really did an exceptional job of getting the dogs out to the dog park, and for daily
walks or hikes. I also got to observe the care they took of the house & car. We were lucky
to get to know them during their stay, going out for several hikes & joining them for several meals. So when the opportunity presented itself to have them watch our place for a couple
of months, we jumped at it.

Since our dog is a rescue and is a little over-bonded to us, they came a few days early to get him used to the idea of new folks in the house. He loved having his two moms around. So much so that when we came back, he wanted to go off with Jodie instead of me ( they had stayed an extra week at a neighbors house to care for his dog) when we saw them around several times. 

Our dog is always our highest priority, but the house and cars were immaculate when we
came home. While we were away, they would send list of the mail received and scan
anything we needed open. We have already arranged for them to come back again
next year for two months. 

Enough said."

"We had the honor of Nat and Jodie staying in our San Diego home and watching our fuzzy babies while we traveled abroad. We vacation often for 2 weeks at a time and have no children. Leaving our fuzzy kids is tough, especially leaving them with someone you've never met. I've been picking sitters now for almost 10 years. The task is never easy when looking for someone to care for your animals almost as much as you do. To care for your house as much as they would for themselves. To trust and to be at ease when leaving is no easy task. I have had really great sitters and have had really bad ones.

When Nat and Jodie inquired about my House/Pet sitting Post, I knew they were the ones. The very first thing I noticed about them like no other sitter is that they are an open book. They tell you everything in their message, their profile, all their many references and their social media. They lay it all out for you to see who they are, where they are, where they've been and all the wonderful animals they have taken care of. Huge, to me. When we got in touch it was like they were old friends. We emailed, we Zoomed (Face Timed) a couple of times. They had many questions and answers. It was a no brainer.

We weren't able to meet them due to us leaving earlier than they arrived but the transition was still smooth. My good friend greeted them and told me they immediately got on the floor with the pups. My friend loved them, as well, and let me know that they were definitely in good hands. We kept in touch here and there via What's App. Sending updates, pics, videos etc.. Nothing better to be half across the world knowing your most beloved possessions are in amazing hands.

Nat and Jodie greeted us upon our return. It was so nice to finally meet them face to face. We chatted a bit and then they were off to their next destination, after amazing hugs goodbye btw. I must add, they took full responsibility of their travels coming and going. We only did train pick up and drop off. As we began to unwind from our long journey back I noticed something. The house was immaculate. It was cleaner than we left it. I couldn't find one thing wrong, broken, missing, even moved! It was like we never left, in a good way. Our backyard received some major love, as well. It was mowed, raked, swept and watered! It looked pristine. What a treat! The pups were happy and in great shape and to be honest, really missed the girls.
I would highly recommend Nat and Jodie. Not only are they the depiction of Professional Housesitting, they are lovely couple who I hope to see again real soon. Your house, car, pets will be in very trusting hands. Responsible, caring, solid people that I would like to call my friends.
I am more than happy to chat with anyone with questions.”
