More InformationFirstly we'd like to introduce ourselves ...Neil and Gai...a professional couple in our early sixties. Currently we are based on the Gold Coast but have lived in several other locations around the country.
We are animal lovers to the core! Dogs are probably in the number 1 position. We are very comfortable with 'the dogs rule!" concept . We adore cats that love to snuggle and Neil has had a string of cockatiels that were highly entertaining and affectionate.
Now to our case for being the sitter you pick!
Gai and I love house and pet sitting. In 2016 we completed seventeen sits in four countries ....Australia...France...UK...and Italy. We enjoyed the menagerie we cared for during that time....mostly doggies and moggies....a joyous year of pets! Many of the owners have become friends.
Being independent television producers and writers, we documented our 2016 year-long adventure with a 13-part on line series called "Village to Villa" ...Living Like Locals. Beautiful dogs....affectionate cats....chooks and an assortment of other amazing creatures. We look forward to creating series 2 during our adventures in Tasmania and country Victoria.
We have both owned property and been landlords as well - so we are right across caring for a property...maintenance, cleaning up etc. We've lived in an apartment for about 3 years now and have missed having a garden as well as pets.
Choosing a house and pet sitter/s is all about trusting that the people you allow into your home are trustworthy, responsible and have high integrity....we would like to claim that position. You will see from our videos we share with you, what kind of job we do.
Gai and I are a sensational team...we get on famously and love each other dearly. We each have enjoyed a long history in television...Gai is an excellent producer and writer....25 documentaries and a long running TV series (Totally Wild) and me with a detailed history as a presenter, journo, news reader and Director of News. Both of us are published authors. Together we run an independent television production company "Village to Villa" Pty Ltd. It's just the two of us plus editors when we needed them. Our global agent is based in Florida.
We can operate from anywhere that has reliable internet connection. Spending so much time "at home" allows us to be with the animals a great deal. From the videos you can see on our website, we become very 'connected' with the pets we care for.
Our references are truly outstanding if I may be so bold...we are really proud of all the sits we have done. Home and pet owners are able to enjoy their holiday knowing all is well at home.
Naturally we both have current police checks, however beyond that, we are highly visible and "checkable".
