We are a non-smoking, outgoing, fit and healthy couple in our mid 60’s who have lived on the beautiful mid north coast of NSW for the past four years. Kate retired early from a career in the Public Service and Steve from the hospitality industry where he worked at large hotel in Canberra.
Kate’s interests include cooking, yoga, genealogy and is a keen gardener while Steve is a handy DIYer and enjoys chess and being active. We are both involved in volunteer work, Kate at the local library and Steve playing chess with an elderly gent and regularly performing maintenance/gardening work for an elderly lady. He is also proficient in pool maintenance.
Over the years we have both owned and cared for a variety of pets including cats, dogs, ferrets, birds and a horse. With a genuine love of animals, we understand that you want to go way having peace of mind knowing that your beloved pets, home and garden are being looked after well. We do not have any pets at the moment as our beautiful cat Simone passed a few years ago. As we are both very active, it would be our pleasure to walk, exercise, play and love your pets. Kate is meticulous at housekeeping and we would look after your home inside and out as if it were our own. Of course, we would be more than happy to keep in touch with you via Skype, email, phone etc while you are away. We joined Mindahome in 2014 with the intention of offsetting our caravan journey around Australia with housesitting and completed a two week house and pet sit in Ballina, NSW in September 2014, our first, where we looked after a small dog and several tanks of exotic fish. However our Australia wide journey and our housesitting assignments came to a halt when we fell in love with the area we now live in and purchased our home and sold our van. We are now seeking new assignments and look forward to discussing your specific requirements with you. We have our own linen, phones, computers and can provide references, Police Certificates and driver's licenses upon request.
