More information about this house sitter
We are a genuine, sincere and trustworthy couple. We are reliable, responsible & will respect, take good care & maintain your home and pets as we would our own. You’ll return to a clean, tidy home and happy healthy animals.
We’re happy to discuss & meet your requirements eg., house care & security, feeding & exercising pets, watering plants, mowing lawns & mail collection. If unexpected circumstances arise eg., bushfires or floods we would remain in close consultation with you, & if possible be willing to postpone our travel plans to ensure the safety of your property & pets. We love animals and have owned dogs, cats & fish. More specifically while housesitting we’ve enjoyed caring for various small & large dogs & cats, chickens, gold fish & guinea pigs. We’ve also housesat a small farm with cats, dogs, 60 chickens, 6 ducks, 3 guineafowl, 3 goats & 2 galahs. They each had their own individual morning & afternoon care & feeding routines.
We’re both 67, retired from full-time work, and are very fortunate to have good health. We lived many years in PNG, Canberra, Woomera, Cairns, Beijing. We’ve enjoyed travelling to other countries, most recently to Italy in 2018. Terry’s a keen fisherman, I love to draw, paint, quilt & croquet amongst other interests. We both enjoy reading, beach/bush walking & meeting lovely people during our travels.
We have experience both as home owners & house sitters, and have been house sitting since 2019 travelling the east coast with our caravan. This year we’re travelling further north to Cairns to visit family. We have completed or confirmed house sits in Port Macquarie (Feb & May), Binna Burra (Mar), Elanora (Apr & July), Scarborough in Aug & Glenwood Qld in late Sep.
Between 2019-2022 we completed 18 housesits, some impacted by bushfires and floods (none in 2020 due to covid travel restrictions). We joined Mindahome House Sitters & Aussie Housesitters in April 2023. We have previous *Homeowner References through “The Housesitters” site.
