More InformationI have been the guardian of properties small and great enjoying the opportunity to immerse in different living environments. It is a delight. Remote and reclusive are perfect this end and as attractive as being in the thick of things! So too rustic or palatial. Each have their unique charms. We have been doing home exchanges for well over a decade and minding homes for nearly as long so have oodles of experience. All manner of pets, ranch and farm animals are cared for expertly and loved unconditionally.
I am a Management Consultant now spending my time working from home and writing material. We recently partially relocated back to the UK as my son started school there where he boards. I am back and forth as I have my parents here and rather than maintain a residence in either the UK or here in Australia, or indeed both, I have found it both fascinating and extremely rewarding house sitting whilst he is at school.
I usually do these house sits on my own with my son visiting for weekends if at all. Either way, being an art scholar and extremely well travelled for his 16 years he is an asset to the property, loving the pets and garden both of which receive the benefit of his care and attention if he visits.
We have done many house sits both here in Australia, the UK as well as abroad. These include a Villa in Chacala Mexico where we were able to experience working briefly with an educational project for local children as well as local village life out of tourist season.
Looking after an incredibly remote ranch in Nevada in 2015 Christmas in the Monitor Valley. With temperatures below minus 15 Celsius. We had our work cut out for us tending the two donkeys, goat, small herd of five horses and two foals which were down off the range for the winter. 40 miles dirt (or snow and ice) and 40 miles tar to the nearest shop, off grid close to many military bases and Area 51 so it was a no fly zone. The most peaceful place we have ever been. It was Gabriels best experience ever he says and during our time there he tamed the foals to the extent they allowed him to hand feed and pet them.
Also Orange County CA., Carqueiranne, Cote d'Azur, Somerset, UK, amongst many others.
As well as having owned extensive and remarkable properties myself I love experiencing different homes and locations. Invariably we end up fixing something whilst there and more often then not it is the wifi set up in the home. We are both tech wizards, I having been on Apples since 1989 when there was no support for them what so ever, and Gabriel is familiar with all the contemporary coding side of things. As a result we usually find quick solutions to most households long list of wifi conundrums lol
We are located in Palmwoods with may parents when we are in Australia and I have lived up on the range as well for many years and know the area very well as the articles about one of our properties indicate. It is easy for us to visit and meet in advance as I usually prefer to do a sit within a couple of hours driving distance from the Sunshine Coast.
We have local police check certificates I will forward when contact is made as well as references.
Look forward to hearing from you.
