More information about this house sitter
Hello fellow travellers !
We are a professional couple who are animal lovers, reliable, honest, trustworthy and caring.
We have been happily married for 29 years, have 2 adult children and 3 grandchildren.
Over the years we have trained 7 guide dogs and loved 2 cats, numerous native birds, lizards and possums (nurtured back to health as Gillian was an area coordinator for Fauna Rescue), in addition to our children's fish and stick insects.
Having had many pets ourselves we know just how important it is to have safe and loving care for your beloved furry, feathered and finned family members - we can assure you of our kindness and affection toward them, as if they were our own.
We are both non smokers, active and in excellent health.
Ian is a retired engineer / business manager and Gillian a school services assistant.
We took early retirement and sold our family home to experience this great country at a slower pace without constraints. We plan to spend the majority of our time exploring in our caravan, with intermittent house sitting to enable you to have a stress-free holiday while we care for your home, garden and pets.
We love the sea, nature, theatre, good books, music and most of all cuddles from furry friends.
We are very capable with home maintenance and gardening, having renovated several of our homes.
We will care for your home, garden and pets as if they are our own, fit in with your pets' routines and provide updates if required, so you are able to enjoy a relaxing holiday and return to a home just as you left it.
We have police clearances and personal references.
The photos include ourselves, previous pet, car & caravan we are traveling in and our previous home in Adelaide.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Ian and Gillian.
PS. The following are 2 example reviews from house sits undertaken through another web site :
* Gillian & Ian have a great level of communication, from before sit to during. I was always kept in the loop along their travels which put me at ease being confident they would be here to care for our home and pets when required. Upon our return our home was clean, our pets were happy and we even had dinner sorted for us in the fridge! During their stay a bush Fire has caused warnings to those in the area and they had all things sorted with our dogs packed and ready to go if needed. Thank you both for all you done in our time away.
* Ian and Gillian are outstanding house sitters. From first communication and then meeting them they made us feel comfortable. They had the highest Integrity and could be trusted with our home and our fur babies. They absolutely loved looking after our two dogs and even bought them some dog toys to play with them more. House was clean and well looked after. Fantastic communication and garden care. Could not be faulted and we both had a relaxing holiday knowing everything was taken care of. Highly recommend Ian and Gillian to house sit for you. Read more...
