More InformationNeil 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!
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 five countries ....Australia...France...England, Scotland...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 TV series called "Village to Villa" ...Living Like Locals. Beautiful dogs....affectionate cats....chooks and an assortment of other amazing creatures.
We have both owned property and been landlords as well - so we are right across caring for a property...maintenance, cleaning etc. We've lived in an apartment but 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.
Gai and I are a great team. 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 detailed history as a presenter, journo, newsreader and Director of News.
Both of us are published authors.
Together we run an independent television production company "Village to Villa" Pty Ltd. Our global agent is based in Shanghai.
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.
We have excellent references and are really proud of all the sits we have done.
Naturally we both have current police checks, however beyond that, we are highly visible and "checkable".
Gai and I pride ourselves on being house proud, neat and tidy. Most of all of the highest integrity and reliability.
