My husband George and I are kiwis who left NZ in 1989 to join family in Perth. We lived in Perth for 28 years and recently returned to NZ and bought a Kayak Hire business. www.puhoirivercanoes.co.nz just north of Auckland. We are returning to Perth in late June through to early August and would love to house sit your home. We really miss having a dog in our life and to spend some time with your animals would be a pleasure and so good for my soul. We are extremely fussy with our own home so it would be no different with yours. We haven't house sat before so can offer no references. We are happy to chat at your convenience and you are welcome to check our business via our website.
