More information about this house sitterWe are an active, reliable, trustworthy, non-smoking Australian couple edging closer to retirement who enjoy travelling during our holidays. We are experienced house/ pet sitters, having done sits in Queensland, West Australia, Victoria , New Zealand and Thailand.
We have visited over 25 countries and have gained vast experience in a range of cultures and climates. We prefer slow travel which enables us to absorb local flavour and customs.
We have been home owners for over 40 years and currently own a rental property, so we have dealt with home improvement projects and solved the odd emergency successfully.
We will look after your home and belongings as we do our own.
Noel particularly enjoys gardening and is very familiar with most mowers/ride-ons /brush cutters and their maintenance, having worked as a golf course Greenskeeper and owned and operated a garden and landscaping business in Western Australia.
Tina, a primary school teacher currently employed as the Head of Junior (Primary) School at a Rural Boarding School is the organiser in our family, with a natural attention to detail and high integrity.
Noel currently works on the maintenance team at the same school. He has owned several rural properties and has spent a number of years working with horses, cattle and pigs.
We have owned and cared for alpacas, horses,cattle, dogs, cats, cockatiels, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks, chooks, budgies, fish , blue tongue lizards and even a tortoise! We know most pets are happier at home and enjoy continuity.
Previously we owned a sailing catamaran and lived aboard for 8 years in SE Asia, so we are familiar with problem solving in unfamiliar surroundings.
At night, we are stay at home types, so would keep your home secure, as if it were our own.
We can provide regular photos and updates of your property if required.
Our commitment is to run your home and look after your furry, feathered friends as you do. Together we will keep your home and grounds clean and tidy, so you can relax on your holiday. Feel free to contact us for a chat.
