We both have Police checks and have some references from other pet owners that we have sat for in the past. Here are some of our references...
It's been almost a week now since we returned to Sydney and happily reunited with our sweet dog Toby.
There are not enough words to express our sincere gratitude for all you did for us while we were away overseas. Our little dog Toby is not hard to love..but as a senior he does need some extra care..and apartment living also means frequent outings. It's always a concern to leave him when we travel however your amazing care and frequent updates put our fears completely to rest. He had some most excellent adventures with you two and clearly was loved and well looked after.
We hope you know how special you both are..to Toby and to us. If you need to use us as a reference please feel free to do so. If you find yourself back visiting in Sydney let us know..would love to catch up again with you both.
All the best..will keep reading the blog! ❤❤❤
Toby, Lynda & Dennis
The house is in tip top shape and I see my orchid has sprouted another branch thanks to your loving attention. I truly hope you enjoyed your stay in Paris and we cannot thank you enough for taking care of our dog and our home during your stay. Have a safe trip home and I'll be sure to write you a raving review on the site. All the best and here's hoping we visit your marvelous country soon.

What amazing house-sitters Kareen and Kevin are. It has to be said that we are dog tragics and our dog Maggie is incredibly important to us. We absolutely loved the constant posts on their blog about Maggie and the adventures they had with her.
They don’t just housesit, they truly look after your home and take care of your animals. Clearly they didn’t just take Maggie for a daily walk but took her with them to lots of different places. I could not recommend them more highly except for the fact that it may mean they will be busy the next time we go away!!!
Thank you both so much. Kathryn T.

Kareen and Kevin looked after our two adopted Cavaliers while we were on holiday in the UK and Europe for 3 weeks. We felt very comfortable leaving our home and precious dogs in their care as they came highly recommended. Kareen also made herself available to chat on the phone a couple of times before the housesit, which made it easier for us. During our time away, Kareen messaged us and sent photos of the adventures our fur babies were having with them, which was greatly appreciated. We loved seeing how happy our little dogs were. We would highly recommend Kareen and Kevin to house/pet sit. They are friendly and competent and we felt very lucky to have them in our home.

"I cannot recommend Kevin and Kareen highly enough as pet and house sitters. I think they looked after our dog, Scarlett, better than we do! The house was immaculate, and they even left us with some fresh milk and bread, and some beautiful flowers.
Both of them were friendly and considerate, and it was wonderful being able to view their blog while we were away to see how Scarlett was doing. I hope they are available next time we plan to be away!" Jenni & Martin
Hi Kareen and Kevin, I hope you both returned home safely. I just wanted to send you an email to say a big THANK YOU to you both for looking after me. I had such a great, fun time with you both. Thank you for taking me for all those walks and to the parks. I met lots of new people on our outings and I very much enjoyed going in your car.
I am so happy to have my family home especially my brother and sister. They have been spending lots of time with me playing silly games which I love and dad took me to the park to throw my ball yesterday which is my most favourite game to play. My mum loved the flowers and plant you left for her. She said the flowers in the bowl reminded her of Hawaii and so she decorated them around me this morning to show you how much I love you both (she isn’t as creative as you Kareen but she tried). Mum thinks the plant on the table looks beautiful so she is going to keep it there as it matches in with all the colours in the house. The cupcakes have all gone now but Matt shared a little bit of the cake with me and they were delicious.
Anyway, thanks again. I will miss you both but I look forward to spending some more time with you both again. Mum said they are going away again and hopefully you both can look after me again, as you two are my favourite and the best dog sitters ever.
Love to you both (woof woof) Chilli, (Adam, Hayley, Matt & Ellie)xx
Kevin and Kareen did a house sit for me in July 2013. I couldn't be more delighted with their care of the house and my 2 dogs. In fact I think the dogs were a little bit disappointed to see me back home having had outings every day since I left.
The house was spotless when I returned and there was even fresh bread and milk for my homecoming. I would highly recommend Kevin and Kareen for any house/pet sitting position.
Yours faithfully, John at Ingleside
We were so lucky to find Kevin and Kareen's house sitting website. They are such lovely people and cared for our animals as if they were their own. They kept in contact with us and let us know what was happening whilst we were away.
On very short notice they were able to stay at our place and care for our house and animals. It was such a relief to find such a kind and loving couple who are very thoughtful and considerate with our animals and our house.
Having them stay, made our trip so much easier as we knew our animals and belongings were being cared for well. We as a family highly recommend Kevin and Kareen as they made our first house sitting experience a pleasure.
They were very professional in the process making us feel very safe and secure. Our animals Bootsy and Angel had the most wonderful time and were looked after so well. They are 2 very special people.
If you're thinking about booking Kevin and Kareen don’t hesitate to call me for a reference!
Kevin & Kareen put our mind at ease looking after our beloved dog Walker & our home while we honeymooned.
It was our first time leaving Walker & we felt a little guilty.
He had the same amount of care love & cuddles & we came home to a very neat home & happy dog.
They are reliable & lovely people to deal with.
Would highly recommend them for house sitting & animal loving.
Dear Kareen and Kevin,
Thank you for minding our pets and our home for my partner and myself while we were away visiting family overseas in Rodrigues. It was so good to be able to go away and know that our home & pets were in good hands and we really enjoyed seeing his pictures that you sent us while we were away. All the best

Kevin and Kareen have minded my dog Peggy and cared for my home now while I am away on holiday for periods of a month at a time, for about 3 years now. When I take Peggy to be minded, she is always so delighted to see them, and wags her tail in delight.
I am very happy to recommend them, their care of my home and Peggy was really appreciated. In my opinion you couldn't leave your home in better hands.
Thank you for feeding my cats while I was away and for giving them TLC - it was great to know that I could relax and unwind knowing that they were cared for R.S.
