What My Customers Say About My Service

“Craig is hands down the best house sitter you could ask for.
His communication, cleanliness, and the peace of mind he brings are what we love about having Craig look after our place and our pets. Craig has looked after our property and pets many times now over the past six years. This includes, a 6-month stay in 2021, and recently another 4 week stay in 2022. Seriously, if you have any doubt about using Craig’s excellent service don’t! He’s amazing, the dogs love him, the house and yard were in immaculate condition.”

Austin and Alex

“For us, there is literally nothing better than being able to go on holiday safe in the knowledge that our dog is having as much fun (if not more) than we are. For this reason, Craig has been our go-to house and dog sitter over the past 5 years. Our relationship with Craig started in 2016 when he looked after Nyla as a puppy and we have been lucky enough to have Craig continue to look after her over the years including the most recent stay in August 2022 this year. Craig makes everything extremely easy, he is clear with his communication, he is reliable and honest. Upon returning, our home is always impeccably clean and the garden looks tidier than how we left it. Most importantly to us is the care and attention that Craig gives to very active and needy Vizsla. Craig even remembered an old injury that Nyla had sustained and customised her exercise so as not to exasperate the injury. Small things like this mean so much to us and really highlight the thoughtfulness that Craig demonstrates.Craig is a complete professional and we cannot recommend him highly enough. Thanks Craig!”

Eve and Gustavo

“We met up over coffee and there were no concerns from our side. We were impressed with the professionalism with which Craig approached the housesit. We felt he would be reliable, resourceful and conscientious. We were not disappointed! Craig sent us an informative weekly update throughout the housesit. The cat seemed to be well liked and well cared for, with spells outside on his lead when weather permitted. Very impressed with the care of the indoor plants – returned to them all being in good shape. Lawns were mowed regularly. Garden looked fine. House was very clean and tidy and we had no concerns at all on our arrival home. Definitely recommend Craig to others.

– Dorothy and John

“Craig has been the best pet sitter we have ever used. His attention to detail is second to none. If you’d like to leave your home and pets with complete peace of mind, Craig is your man.”

Terri and Jason

“Finding Craig was a ‘gift’! We are not the type of people that feel comfortable leaving our home and dog with just anyone, there are lots of reasons for this, and I think one is the feeling of being vulnerable on different levels. We did not feel this at all! Craig is a warm person and establishing rapport is easy! Arriving home was a treat, dog and garden was in great condition! House was ‘cleaned’ linen was “washed’, food for the dog was ‘ready and thawed’. He harvested the garden and there were fresh veggies waiting! We would recommend Craig – in fact we already have! It is like having a friend come into your home to care for it!”

Janet and Brendan

“Wow, what a great house sitter. Craig house and pet sat for my husband & I while we were away for four months. Craig went above and beyond expectations, whilst away, we received weekly updates and if there were any problems Craig would call us. We take pride in our home, and upon return it was as if we had not been away. It was spotless. Nothing was a problem for him. We would not hesitate to use Craig again in the future and have already recommended him to our friends and family.”

Craig and Karen

“We recently had the good fortune of finding Craig at Craig’s House Sitting! From the first point of contact, Craig was friendly, professional and very flexible. We were reassured that our dog was being left in safe and caring hands and our home was left spotless. We will be using Craig again and highly recommend his service.”

Lyle and Melanie

“My family and I highly recommend Craig to anyone in search of a high-quality, professional, and reliable house/pet sitting service. Craig has open and honest communication which we love. Craig is flexible when it comes to meeting your families and pets requirements. Our house was left spotless and our two dogs were happy!”

Claire and Jace

“Craig has looked after our house and pets twice now. I have been able to take a proper break not worrying about how things are at home. I have every confidence that Craig has every situation covered. Craig is an excellent communicator and an absolute professional at this service. I can’t recommend him highly enough.”

Deanna and Scott

I favour and prioritise longer term stays. I do consider last minute short term stays if it works in with my schedule.

Please note that I do prioritise comfortable stays in clean environments working with professional people.

generally favour longer term stays, however ALL stays/time frames are considered depending on my schedule.

My services are best suited to professional people who expect and appreciate:

  • A high level of care.

  • A trusted mature professional presence that respects your home and your pets.

As this is a lifestyle focused business for me, I appreciate great locations and comfortable stays – particularly coastal environments. A good internet connection is also very important.


I value working with and for ethical people, who, like myself, demonstrate accountability, integrity, respect and communication throughout the assignment.

*Conditions and further information:

  • LAST MINUTE stays are a possibility and will be negotiated.

  • Pet sitting LARGE untrained dogs requiring walks during stays are not my market – generally far too hard to control and manage for me (as much as I love big dogs).

  • OSP (off street parking) is a requirement  – No OSP = no stay.

  • I work and live in clean environments. I do not mind simple, basic accommodation, however it does need to be clean and tidy for me to look after your home.

  • INTERNET ACCESS with data is required. Please note, there are always exceptions to the rule however, like isolated coastal or natural environments that I might consider.

  • Need some further clarification about this? My blog post here discusses it further.

And one last request….
