More information about this house sitter

Let's start by saying that we are both triple vaxed.
Secondly, we are not available until about mid July 2022. We prefer longer term housesitting to short term, if for no reason other than continually having to move on, often covering long distances between jobs doesn't make for a happy life or give us a chance to get to know the locals.
We are grey nomadic grandparents of 11 grandkids spread around SA, Vic, NSW & Qld. Originally from a rural background, we are reliable, honest and like to think that we have good-old country ethics & values.
Our working careers largely involved administration and managenent roles of both people and facilities, mostly in rural areas.
In 2007 we took on a seventeen room country motel. After ten years of workjng 24/7 and growing the business we accepted a proverbial "offer we couldn't refuse" and retired, leasing out our motel.
We've been on the road ever since, mixing our travels with a bit of house sitting here & there.
We are reasonably fit and active outdoorsy people and don't take life too seriously. Due to the limitations that come with travelling with pets we currently have none of our own but are comfortable minding either domestic or farm animals.
Whilst we currently enjoy the nomadic lifestyle we have chosen we also enjoy stopping in one place for extended periods and meeting new people while being part of a community. House sitting allows us to have this flexibility. We certainly don't rely on or passionately seek positions. We are happy just to keep rolling along but at timed we have found that people can get stuck finding sitters. Being quite flexible we are happy to be able to help out iwhen and where we can.
We will only ever apply for or accept positions that we know we can physically handle in the way that the property owners would expect from us. If we think we would not enjoy a sitting job nor be capable of doing it to the owner's satisfaction we will politely decline. We sincerely believe house sitting is a two-way deal & everyone needs to be happy at the end of the day - you and us!
We mostly prefer to be off the roads in busy times such as school holidays. These are often the times when house sitters are most needed so it can be a win-win all 'round.
We're happy to provide phone numbers of people that we have sat for previously or what's probably better, a face to face chat on Wotsap or similar. Generally find that a few telephone calls can usually help determine whether both parties are going to feel comfortable with each other.
We thank you for taking the time to look at our profile and look forward to hearing from you if you think we may be suitable to housesit for you.
