More information about this house sitterWe are married couple, empty nesters, non smokers from Tannum Sands Central Qld. We traveled through Tasmania for 5 months a year ago and stayed with people through a site called helpx which lead to us house sitting and looking after their pets and gardens ... one house had a dog, 3 cats, 10 chooks and large gardens which we thoroughly enjoyed. This was such a great experience meeting local people and learning about their community and we have made life long friends with many. We can give you references for where we have stayed/ we have a helpx profile you can look at. We both love animals and had a Rottweiler who grew up with our daughter, we also travel to goldcoast a couple of times a year when our daughter and partner go on holiday and look after their German Sheppard so we know all the local dog parks and where you can safely walk your dog. We are both very keen gardeners and have worked on permaculture and bio dynamic farms which has taught many skills we have incorporated into our home gardens. I am a diesel fitter by trade and very active with building and maintenance having owns rental properties so I can repair/ maintain most maintenance issues. My wife is a chef and has owned a Resturant and cafe so can handle any special dietary requirements your pets may need.
We always treat other people’s homes like our own and respect your privacy and property. We love looking after pets as they give you so much joy. Hope to meet your pets and yourselves soon
