We are a semi-retired married couple with part-time work on the internet and married for 42 years (non-smokers). Having had our first house sit back in December 2007, we have become experienced at house sitting. We generally accept mid to long term house sits; but sometimes, we do take short term house sits to fill-in the calendar. At present, we are open for one more house sit from mid-December 2019. We are working on our house sitting calendar for 2020, with one house sit now scheduled for 1st of February through to 25th May 2020. We have taken care of cats, dogs, and birds as well as farm/ranch animals (horses, chickens, etc); and we can definitely walk dogs, once or twice a day as requested. We have been trained in putting on rugs and taking off rugs for horses. Besides feeding, we have let chickens out in the morning and made sure chickens are in at night. We feed the pets and ranch animals as the owners request, according to the guidelines. Our experience includes giving pets their medication as well as insulin shots. Having had our own cleaning business and sold it in the past, we do maintain and clean the home for the entirety of the house sit (see our reviews). We also have experience in managing Airbnb, with change over cleaning duties. As needed, we have our own Telstra stick internet. We also have had experience in solar power, with inverters, battery back up, and daily recording, as well as rain water tanks. Therefore, we are careful with the use of power and water. We ordinarily arrive by trains, buses, then walk, or get collected; and we have no problem walking for nearby shopping or taking buses or trains to shop. We know the importance of security and being at the house most of the time and especially at night. On a number of house sits, we have been granted the use of cars or trucks to have them driven: which we use wisely and sparingly. We have references on this site; please take note. We can have a face to face interview via internet. Enjoying gardening, we are quite happy to maintain gardens or potted plants. Furthermore, we have a policy once a commitment is made and booked not to cancel, unless of course there might be a severe health emergency; but we would definitely not cancel for perceived better dates. With exercise and healthy eating, though, we are in very good health. We can be found on Facebook exactly as written - George andYvette House sitters - with photos and video.
