More information about this house sitterWe are Kirsty Carter and Lawrie Masterson, experienced housesitters with more than 30 five-star reviews on Trusted Housesitters. We can provide a link to them on request.
Having owned or rented numerous properties, apartments and houses, we know how to care for homes, furniture and gardens. We grew up with dogs and cats and have had cats most of our adult lives.
We know that all animals have independent personalities that must be understood and respected if they are to be cared for properly. Usually that involves clean litter, ample and suitable food, plenty of fluids, exercise ... and, most importantly, lots of affection. We are now indulging in our love of travel and like to explore many of our destinations on foot. We have done housesits in countries as diverse as Vietnam, Egypt, Switzerland, the UK, France, The Netherlands, Slovakia, Canada and the US, as well as Australia. We love the opportunity it gives us to experience local communities and lifestyles. We are non-drinkers and non-smokers and will respect your home and possessions as we would our own. We are good communicators and are available on FaceTime, WhatsApp and Skype (details on request). If you’d like to know even more about us and follow our travels, we’d be happy to provide a link to our personal website.
We love housesitting because of the opportunity it gives us to experience local communities and lifestyles, make contact with a wide variety of interesting people and care for some beautiful animals.
Kirsty held senior level positions in the not-for-profit sector before exercising her love of community by building websites that help people communicate with their clients and communities. Lawrie had a long career as journalist. Over the past few years, he has wanted to travel for personal enjoyment rather than for work. He is a dual Australian-US citizen.
In 2018, after years of being home owners, we sold our high-end apartment in downtown Melbourne to embark on this adventure. We have a wealth of experience dealing calmly with the various problems that can arise for any home owner. We have been animal lovers since childhood.
