More information about this house sitter

Home, garden and animal lovers.

We have 2 adult children and two grandchildren who live in Melbourne while we are based in Tropical Queensland. Before coming to Yeppoon in Central Queensland on the beach we lived in East Malvern and worked in Melbourne so we are familiar with the inner suburbs of Melbourne in particular. We would love to be in closer contact with them while we house sit in Melbourne (South or Northern suburbs ideally) and can visit each other as their homes are too small for us to stay.

We are meticulous in the house and garden and respectful of others’ possessions. We are home owners and non smokers. We will care for your home just as you want and will return it to you in the same condition you leave it to us. We will care for your pets in a very confident, relaxed, fun and loving way. Your business will be our number one priority whenever we house sit for you.

We are good communicators and will endeavour to keep you updated on your pet, house and any emergency developments while you are away.

We enjoy housesitting and caring for friends' pets while they are away and can provide referee contacts for you to check our suitability and their satisfaction if desired.

We have previously house sat in Sandringham for 2 different families for 5 weeks each time through Mindahome. Once we looked after a Spoodle. The other time there were no pets but instead we like to think we successfully looked after 2 Brownlow Medals as it was house sitting the home of Andy Judd and wife Lisa, parents of Chris Judd.

We are wanting to return to Melbourne when the real estate market comes back in this region. Currently we live on the beachfront overlooking The Keppel Group of Islands. One of our preferences for Melbourne living is a townhouse / apartment in the inner city area so your place is so appealing to us to experience to see if we are suited to this arrangement.

We are absolutely reliable so do not worry about us arriving on time, flights etc. We can stay overnight before you leave with our niece at Albert Park to ease the housesit, too.

We fell in love with Spoodles and now have Arthur a mid size 17kg Spoodle. He must be in the middle of your Groodle and caboodle. Prior to that we had always had bigger dogs, the last being a 14 year old Golden Retreiver named Baxter, so we are confident of being with bigger dogs too.

Happy to speak with you if you would like to know more.

Jan Duffie and Jack Wood
