My husband Stuart and I are Townsville locals . We housesit all year round locally and live with our family in the Northern Beaches area between housesits. We are a relaxed and quiet couple who enjoy spending time with animals, out in nature, snorkelling/diving, reading, photography and theatre.
I currently work for the Federal Government and my husband is undergoing an engineering degree at JCU.
We are massive animal lovers and are very comfortable with all breeds of dogs and cats and have the energy to take them out exercising as much as they need! To date we've spent time living with and loving a staffy, pitbull x, maltese, bull arab x, rottweiler, kelpie x, labradors, a boxer, sherpei staffy x, huskies...the list goes on!
We have owned and cared for family parrots including cockatiels, budgies, lorikeets and cockatoos so we are very familiar with avian care and comfortable around birds.
We carry out local house sitting as we live out of town with family in the Northern Beaches area and would like shorter commutes to work and uni while we save for a house deposit across the next few years. We would be at your home ensuring your fur babies are feeling safe and loved as well as ensuring the property is looked after.
We would be more than happy to send regular photos and videos of your babies as I know how much this helped me when we moved to the UK and I had to say goodbye to my little maltese dog who stayed home in Aus with mum.
We are very respectful of others property and privacy and are extremely non-judgmental of the way others live. You can rest assured that we will take great care in looking after your home the way you would like ensuring that the privacy of your belongings is maintained.
Of course, we don't expect to be paid for our time as some other house sitters do. House sitting for us is a mutually beneficial experience. We can be available for stays as short as two weeks or up to months at a time. We have the benefit of being able to live at home with our family when we aren't house sitting so we are able to be flexible to suit your needs.
We have carried out house sitting in Townsville, Balgal Beach and Magnetic Island. We are more than happy to show you the excellent reviews we received and provide references you can contact.
Currently we live with and look after an Oscar fish, a large bull arab x, as well as local wallabies and birds that hang around our family home so if you have local wildlife you normally feed and water we are happy to do this as well.
We are also open to looking after snakes and lizards if you can advise on everything that needs to be done as we've not cared for them before but we do have family that own them and we do like them :)
We do not have any children or pets of our own that would need to stay with us so our care and attention would be totally focused on taking care of your home and fur/feathered/scaled babies.
We both have Australian Passports that can be shown as proof of identity, letters from the bank, department of transport etc to confirm we live here as well as family and friends in Townsville who would be more than happy to provide references for us.
Please feel free to contact me anytime to have a chat about your requirements.
Please note: Before we formally book any houses-sit in, we do require a face to face meeting to get to know you, discuss your home, needs and meet your pet/s. Prior to meeting and formally confirming your booking we can only 'pencil in' your dates.
