We are two Aussie guys who absolutely love the house sitting lifestyle. We have been house sitting full time since 2016, across New Zealand and Australia. We have met some wonderful home owners and their pets and are willing to consider any house sittting opportunities across the globe. We enjoy experiencing things ‘as a local’, and with our love of travel and animals, house sitting ticks all the boxes for us, whilst allowing our home owners to have worry free holidays and trips.
We are clean, tidy, responsible and non-smokers. We both love animals, particularly dogs (especially golden retrievers and border collies) and cats. We are both happy to take care of your garden and lawn as well.
We both work online, so a reliable internet connection would need to be available at your home so that we can continue our work.
My husband and I engaged the services of Christopher and Andrew for a house sitting job in our home in Palm Springs, Ca. We have a large home and a 13yo Cockapoo we wanted to have looked after while we travelled overseas in August/September 2017.
I have known Christopher (20+yrs) and Andrew (10+yrs) both personally and professionally while I resided in Australia between 1989-2010. I had no reservations calling on them to look after our most precious things when the time came.
Christopher and Andrew were both personable and professional in their approach to looking after our fur baby and property while we travelled. Their attention to detail is impeccable in regards to our pets needs and our home. They went over and above when faced with an unexpected rain storm here in a Palm Springs, which resulted in flooding in the area. The guys were quick to do what they needed to do which included digging trenches in the middle of the storm to allow water to escape our back yard and stop the house from flooding. We were ever so grateful.
In addition, we had some deliveries arrive while we were away. One of he deliveries was an order for some new barstools. Christopher and Andrew, without even thinking twice, offered to unpack and assemble these with our permission.
We returned to an exceptionally clean home and a very happy dog! We couldn’t have asked for more! I highly recommend Christopher and Andrew for any house/pet sitting job you may have now or in the future.

My wife and I were absolutely delighted with Andrew and Christopher, The Global Wanderers, and their care of our home and vehicles. They left our home in immaculate condition, and they are personable individuals. My sister showed them around town a bit, and now she misses them. They are simply very nice guys. If you engage them as housesitters we have no doubt that you would be impressed with their care of your home and attention to detail. We would not hesitate for an instant to hire them again.
September/October 2017BOB & DEB
We were privileged to have Andrew and Christopher look after our home during our extensive travel around Australia. We came home unexpectedly during our trip and were delighted to walk into our home as if we had just been out for a few hours. When we finally returned, at the end of our trip, once again, the house was spotlessly clean and the plants that we usually try to kill were flourishing. They certainly went the extra mile to ensure our homecoming would delight us. We would certainly recommend their house sitting and look forward to having them again.

Andrew and Christopher looked after our house and silly puppy earlier this month while we were overseas. Oddly, it only struck me once we were away that I didn’t have a single concern leaving them with all of our belongings. And my intuition was right; they are trustworthy, lovely, funny, responsible and kind. When we got home the entire place was tidy, the dog was happy – everything in the house felt good: people had been here who cared. They were also in contact with us while we were away to let us know that everything was ok. I was impressed, and grateful. I’d unconditionally recommend Christopher and Andrew to anyone who needed house-sitters.
Andrew & Christopher recently looked after our naughty girls Maisie & Bluebell and our dusty Queenslander house in Brisbane. What a remarkable job they did! We were very fortunate to spend two days with them too and they have become firm friends. We had regular updates on the antics of our fur babies along with photos which was fabulous. They loved our babies like we do! The dusty house has never looked so clean and will never look that way again! We highly recommend these guys and we are so lucky to have made two such lovely friends.

Andrew and Christopher looked after our Darwin home for the past 4 weeks. What can I say….they have been just fantastic. We met the day prior to us flying out and I knew we had the right people for the house sit. Really good guys and they have looked after our place better than we do ourselves. They kept us in touch with a few text messages and reassured us that all was in hand. We returned to a super clean home, tidy garden and clean sheets on our bed. Even our grumpy old cat seems oddly happy! Would have them back in a heartbeat – thanks you 2!
Andrew and Christopher came to stay in my home and mind my two indoors-only Birman cats while I was away for 10 days in October 2016.
I have had many house/pet-sitters over the years, but none as outstanding as Andrew and Christopher!
They took such wonderful, loving care of my beloved cats, sending me regular updates and photos. Nothing was too much trouble and they coped with my rather ‘special needs’ boy cat brilliantly and with the utmost of patience, love and understanding.
When I returned home, my apartment was spotless – in fact, it was even cleaner than I had left it! The bed was all made up for me, the extra towels and sheets were washed and folded, there was milk in the fridge and flowers waiting! And most importantly, two very happy, beautifully looked after cats were waiting to greet me!
Andrew and Christopher are well experienced, truly professional house/pet-sitters. They take pride in taking the utmost care of your home and pets and will easily adapt to whatever kind of home or pets you may have. Having them to housesit means that you can fully enjoy your holiday or time away from home, knowing that everything is in the best of hands.
I would recommend Andrew and Christopher as highly as possible. If you are looking for the perfect people to care for your home and pets, look no further! I only hope that I am fortunate enough to have them come to stay during my future holidays! They are quite simply, the best!
We have never had someone house sit our house or our animals before – so this was a leap of faith for us. We were off overseas for the first time in many years and we didn’t want to put our pets in kennels for such a period of time. From the first conversation we had with Andrew and Chris we were convinced that we needn’t worry. They understood our concerns, particularly in regards to looking after our pets, they made great suggestions on timing so that we had a good overlap with them either end and they adapted their schedules to make it easy for us. They arrived a couple of days ahead of our departure which was a great idea because it gave, our dog in particular, time to get to know and trust them. So by the time we left we had total confidence in them. While we were away they had to make some decisions on taking one of the cats and the dog to the Vet. They made competent decisions and they kept us informed all along the way. Again they took care of everything. We met them again on our return and everything about the house was immaculate and the animals had clearly been looked after lovingly. We would highly recommend Andrew and Chris to others looking for careful, pet-loving, kind people to house sit your house.

Christopher and Andrew were fantastic pet sitters while we were away for 2 weeks. We used them on a recommendation from a friend, and we were very pleased that they lived up to the praise!
We would get periodic photos of our 2 cats which was unexpected at first, but reassuring, and we looked forward to the next update!
In addition, they were as neat as a pin, and when we arrived home after 2 weeks, we found our house just as we had left it…or perhaps even a little cleaner.
Thanks again guys, I can’t wait to go away on our next trip!
September 2017BEN & CHRIS
Absolutely fabulous and amazing guys … and now we will remain as friends…my dog and chickens loved them too!
My wife, Lesley, and I cannot recommend Christopher and Andrew highly enough. They took wonderful care of our house and garden for two months while we took a well deserved holiday. Our two dogs were pampered and loved. Although not part of the deal they were kind enough to keep a watchful eye on an elderly relative who lives separately on the property. There was great communication and pictures to keep us in the loop. What topped it all off was that these two gentlemen were just that – gentlemen.
May 2017PAUL & LESLEY
We could not speak highly enough of Andrew & Christopher. They looked after our house as if it was there own, and we came home after 4 weeks overseas to a well maintained garden and lovely clean house. Our pet Golden Retriever “Rocket” obviously enjoyed his pampering as it has taken us a week to stop him going into the boys room looking for “pats”. We can highly recommend Andrew & Christopher and would welcome then back at anytime.
July 2016DENNIS & BRENDA
Christopher and Andrew were the perfect house sitters. They looked after our house and cat for three weeks, and they could not have done a better job. They kept in contact and provided regular updates so we always felt in the loop, and they ensured our house was ready for our return. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them as house sitters
June 2016ROBERT & AIDAN
Andrew and Christopher were exemplary custodians of our home. They stayed in touch with us during our trip overseas and were kind enough to pick us up from the airport upon our return, the property was clean and well cared for. Our pet chooks were happy, plump and pampered! We would not hesitate to have them care for our property again and can in good conscience recommend them to anyone considering house sitters.
