More InformationThis year (2017) we are considering longer road trips to north Qld and /or WA, leaving home in late May. Generally, we prefer house sits of one month or less.
All our experiences with house sitting have been positive and we have met some wonderful people and their pets! We are retired country people used to a modest life style, and love travelling throughout Australia in our small caravan. We are non-smokers, social drinkers only and love nature and wildlife. We are honest,responsible and 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.
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 enjoyed 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 whilst last year we house sat in the Kiewa Valley in NE Victoria, close to home. We have references from most house sits done to date, (as well as the usual personal references, Police Checks and Working with Children cards.) We can also give contact details for the most recent house sitting jobs if you would prefer contact by phone.
