More Information

Hello and thank you so much for visiting my profile.
I am a full time House Sitter and have been for over six (6) years now. So please continue reading thru a fascinating array of animals I have had the pleasure and enjoyment of looking after.
Also did you know I provide this service totally free of charge (unlike some other House Sitters).
You know House sitting has become a real passion for me and I do this 24hours a day seven days a week so is it any wonder why I have perfected a really great job (HouseSitting)
And I get a real buzz from talking to your Dog, Cat, Birds, Alpacas, and even Chickens (yes they talk to me and i talk to them and no I'm not a little looney).
So lets start by a simple introduction.
My name is Henk Van Den Bos
I am an active retired Male Nurse/Truck Driver/Caravan Park Manager (69) years young (well life began at 40 for me) So that only makes me 29 (oh I wish)
And I am a non-smoker and a very social drinker.
First and foremost let me put your mind at ease,I have security clearances from both the Australian Federal Police as well as from the American law enforcement agencies in order to enter both Pine Gap( Spy Base near Alice Springs) and also to enter the Alice Springs Jail in order to empty their garbage bins whilst working for Cleanaway in the NT).
Now I could tell you all the things I have done but that would so bore you.
So I will tell you about those things that stand out.
I was a registered male nurse at Prince Henry Hospital in NSW for just over five years .
I became a Truck driver ( thanks to the army teaching me to drive large transports) doing interstate and intrastate Subcontracting with a large transport company( CUBICO.)
Then after not much convincing I purchased a Silver Eagle Coach/Motorhome and travelled OZ. So after having run Caravan parks.Bed and breakfast,s And that started the HouseSitting bug in South Australia doing a farm sit (and took to it like a duck to water)
Now speaking of ducks i have looked after countless Dogs numerous Cats,Fish (tropical & cold water) Alpacas.Goats,Sheep, Horses and oh yes ducks and Chickens and a Turkey called boyfriend.
As you might now think i love animals well you would be 100% correct.
And now you might be thinking i could be the right persons to be entrusted to look after your Animals and Property?( and that's not an easy choice) But you would be right again.
I also like to think I am a bit of a Handyman a (jack of trades and master of none) but none the less I more often get things fixed.

That brings us to the present.
I can provide telephone numbers of Referees upon request.Where you can actually speak the my new found friends (as I'm sure you will become)
My motto is "I Came As A HouseSitter And I left As A Friend" (and I have made plenty new friends).
And I look forward to you and your animals becoming my new found friends.
Thank you so much for reading my Profile all the way through.
Ps: Please look at my booking calendar at to my availability (as I hate to disappoint)
PPS : Your animals are much much happier in there own Environment (rather than in some dingy kennel all by themselves)
