More Information

I am honest, caring, reliable and dedicated. If I say I will do something, I will do it.
I am also flexible and am a "glass half full" person and always looking for new opportunities :-)

I retired 3.5 years ago from my last job of 22 years and after living in Vic, SA, WA and back in Vic for the last 3 years of my job, I moved to the Gold Coast in search of warmer weather.
Realise that I need more than just being in retirement and while I am happy in my new environment, I found that I was missing having new challenges, and house/pet sitting has accomplished that for me.

I totally understand the need for people going on hols or travelling for work that it is imperative that your house, pets and gardens are looked after.
I have used this type of service often.

I completed my first Mindahome booking in Mackay in 2017/18 for 6 weeks over Dec/Jan. The owners were very happy with my stay and invited me back for 2 weeks in September 2018 while they are away. They also gave me a very good review which you should be able to review.
I did not do any house sitting first half of2018 because I was a Volunteer for the Hockey at the Commonwealth Games which was a fantastic experience , meeting new friends plus also catching up with friends I had not seen for 30 years (I used to be an International Hockey Umpire - umpiring at 3 World Cups and the 1984 Olympics)
Since September 2018 I have house/pet sat for times (3 weeks and 2 weeks) for an owner in Ipswich, 3 weeks in Beenleigh, 2 weeks looking after 2 houses in Ormeau (canary, goldfish, gardens and one pool) - a referral from the owners in Beenleigh.
I am currently house/pet sitting in Toowoomba for a month, looking after a German Shepherd and a Maltese Shih Tzu.
I also have a confirmed booking in Thagoona (near Ipswich) for 3+ months from July 1.

You should be able to see the references from Mackay, Ipswich and Beenleigh. Unfortunately, Mindahome is not set up for an owner to give a second review for return house sits, however I am sure that the Mackay and Ipswich owners would be happy to give you a review of my second "sits" for them.
Happy to provide more information
