More information about this house sitter

We are a happy, respectful couple with a small eco footprint. Hubby, Tim, is a handyman/coffee machine technician, 58 yrs of age. I'm Calli 56 yrs old, Greek Interpreter.

We both work casual hours. I work on my phone and laptop from home and hubby is casual too with his regular customers. The reason we are casual is because our Bible based volunteer work is our priority and takes up more of our time. So your pet would have company during the day.

Would you like to know more about us? We're non smokers, house proud who treat others and their property the way we want to be treated ourselves and our property, for eg we're conscious of not being wasteful of utilities, we don't party, we shower at the beach after a swim, don't use hairdryers, rarely use irons or clothes driers, so we're cheap to run.

We're fit and healthy, animal and nature lovers. Very clean and reliable (see references). Your house and pet will be very well looked after and respected as we are grateful that you are entrusting us with a highly important and valuable part of your life! We are honest, quiet, and easy to get along with.

All our lives we've had pets-cats, dogs, birds, chooks-but not now. So we have experience with animals and can 'communicate' and connect with them well. We love to love a pet at a house sit, as we get pet clucky, while at the same time enjoying a break from our home in Melbourne. Love cuddles and wrestles.

We would also enjoy just a house sit if no pets and can do light gardening and use a ride on mower.

Over the years we've also cared for pets and/or homes of friends and relies. I can give you their phone numbers if you would like to ask about us.

What we don't want at this time is the responsibility of too many animals together eg farms, and, we don't want to stay near large power lines. Hubby has mild asthma so we prefer not to take on sits with lots of fur on the carpet and furniture.

We have police clearances and working with children checks due to our volunteer work. We can also provide verbal referees upon request.

I've given all the relevant details I can think of but please don't hesitate to ask us anything that'll help both you and us in enjoying a good house sitting experience. Every home owner has their individual needs so let us know.

Below are references I've copied and pasted from Aussie House Sitters website as we also subscribe to them. Also please click on our references on this (Mindahome) site.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

From Redland Bay August 2019:

[Rating: 5.0] I cannot speak highly enough of Tim and Calli who cared for our house and cat over the past 6 weeks while we were overseas. We met them only briefly before we left but over the time we were away I developed the most amazing email relationship with. Calli who corresponded regularly and provided day to day details of their activities and interaction with our young Siamese, who they seemed to adore and the feeling was obviously mutual. Since they left yesterday , she has been on a reconnaissance mission in search of her missing friends. On our return we found both the house and pool in immaculate condition, all laundry done and wonderful surprises in the refrigerator for our first day home after a long long flight. These sitters were Heaven sent. I have no hesitation in giving them the highest possible recommendation

It was a pleasure to have Calli and Tim to sit our house and look after our ageing cat over the Christmas period. They looked after the house and garden and all my pots beautifully, despite the extreme heat and we would not hesitate to have them sit for us again.

Calli & Tim were wonderful house sitters. They took great care of our home, leaving it clean & tidy as they'd found it. Most importantly the looked after my old girl Loulu very well, I know she was happy and loved. I have no hesitation in recommending Calli, to house sit and care for your pets. I'd be happy to have them back again.
