More information about this house sitterWe are a retired couple travelling now for over eight years around Australia. We are now happily loving life in beautiful Tasmania. We do intend to continue travelling for the foreseeable future.
Previous to travelling we have owned dogs, a cat, birds, chickens and cows.
Before retirement we owned and operated a wholesale plant nursery with our own transport running from Bundaberg to Sydney. We also owned and operated a landscaping business with Geoff, prior retirement, holding a QBCC license for Structural Landscaping (Trade). Previous to this Geoff was in corporate management being a mechanical and structural engineer. Geoff is also a qualified Fitter and Turner but has not worked as a fitter and Turner since completing his traineeship.
With our back grounds in business, horticulture and trades we enjoy looking after animals, gardens and lawns and carrying out general handyman functions. We have owned a number of chlorine and salt above ground and in ground pools so we are familiar with regular pool maintenance. We lived and operated our wholesale plant nursery totally on tank and dam water so we are also familiar with controlled water usage and the related pressure water pumps and controllers for domestic and irrigation use.
We are reliable, friendly, caring, tidy and non smokers. We take pleasure in meeting new home owners and we have made some long term friends with some of the home owners we have house sat for. We have a number of reviews attached to our profile for anyone to read.
We are travelling with our car and caravan and would like to to take them with us where ever we go. As we are long term travelling in our caravan we no longer have any of our own pets with us.

Since commencing house sitting we have cared for dogs, cats, cows, sheep, chickens, alpacas, horses and gold fish. In 2019 we commenced house sitting in March and completed 8 house sits (including 1 repeat) totalling 29 weeks by the end of 2019. In 2020 we completed a 4 week house sit and a 4 week farm sit prior the Covid 19 virus restrictions coming into place and now have 4 confirmed house sits for late 2020 and early 2021.
