More information about this house sitterHello fellow travellers!
We are a professional couple who are animal lovers, reliable, honest, trustworthy and caring.
We have been happily married for 28 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 are new to home and pet sitting on this site however have experience having looked after several friends homes and pets over the years.
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.
