Quiet careful retired couple will care for your house as if it was their own. Pam was a teacher, Gary is a writer. Both are non-smokers.

Now for some details...

We are a retired married couple, living in Canberra. We moved here to be near our married daughter. Our son lives in Sydney - and so do our two little grand-daughters!

Our house sitting started up in earnest 4 years ago when long-time friends at Mundoolun in SE Queensland wanted to head off in their caravan for a month or so in early winter. We keep getting invited back every year so we must be doing something right, eh?

Also we've had various other successful house-mindings over the years. Check out the character references from long-time associates in the "My Attachments" section.

So who are we?

Pam, aged 72, was a primary school teacher, both here and in the UK where we met 46 years ago. Her husband Gary, aged 70, used his computer skills to build a home business, although now he's more focused on writing, so let's say "semi-retired".

As a couple we are quiet, not party animals or players of loud music and we are both lifelong non-smokers.

We own our own home (and also owned when we lived in New Zealand back in the 1970s).

We will look after your home as if it was our home, keeping it neat and clean, and treating your possessions with care and respect.

We grew up with cats, dogs, birds and chooks. Beloved as they were, our dogs didn't sleep in our bedrooms, in case you were wondering. Recently we've added worm farms to our repertoire. Exciting, eh?

If we can be of help to you, or if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Bye for now.
