More information about this house sitter

Now the WA border is open we are planning on visiting family in Perth leaving Victoria in late May 2022, and stopping along the way.
We joined Mindahome about 10 years ago and all our experiences with house sitting have been positive. We have met some wonderful people and their pets!

We have references from most house sits done to date, (as well as the usual personal references, Police Checks and Working with Children certificates.) We can also provide contact details for our recent house sitting jobs if you would prefer contact by phone. Generally, we prefer house sits of one month or less.
We are retired country people used to a modest life style, and love travelling throughout Australia with our small caravan. We are non-smokers, social drinkers only and are honest and responsible. We're used to looking after animals, small acreages and gardens.
At home we are very involved in our local community organisations including church, Golf Club, CFA etc. One of us is a wannabe patch worker, interested in singing and the other a gardener, chess player and golfing tragic who likes to be outside doing things....we are both fit and active, enjoy reading, music and gardening. We have also done volunteer work with BlazeAid over several years, most recently at Corryong Vic in early 2020.

We did our first house sit in 2011 for a month in Perth with 2 lovely Huskies. The following year we did a house sit near Bendigo, Vic. for 1 month and have had 2 return visits since. In June 2013 we enjoyed looking after a lovely German Shepherd and house in the Adelaide Hills followed by another great house sit with 2 little French Bulldogs in Perth over Christmas 2013. 2014 found us on a big road trip to WA including several weeks in Dunsborough and May 2015 saw us in Stanthorpe Qld on a few acres, 2016 we house sat in NE Victoria, close to home. 2017 we were at Atherton and Kingaroy Qld. In 2018 we travelled to SA and WA, leaving home in mid June to housesit en route at Ceduna. We have done several house sits for a friend at nearby Yackandandah as well as Tathra in 2019. Our last housesit was near Cobram in 2021.
