More Information

Hi! Our names are Ian & Tracey DiBartolo and we are enjoying a new chapter in our lives!
We have been married for 34 years, sold our family home, and recently moved into our retirement home in McLaren Vale.
We are mature, responsible and trustworthy and absolutely love the concept of house-sitting and all it has to offer. We have the utmost respect for other people’s possessions and would treat your home with all the care and kindness that we gave to our own home.
We are well traveled and had many wonderful experiences both overseas and around Australia meeting new people and also opening our own home to guests.
Neither of us are smokers, and would be happiest in a house that belongs to non-smokers.
We are the proud owners of our lovely dog Sassy, an 8 year old kelpie/staffy cross who is an absolute delight. She is an obedient and loving dog, and lucky enough to have a dad (that would be Ian) who walks her every morning without fail. Needless to say, Sassy is our family (now that our son is married) and depending on the house sit, we would love her to come with us. She is predominantly an 'outside' dog, however if she does come inside (while we are watching TV of an evening for instance) then she knows to curl up in her basket and stay put!
Ian is enjoying his retirement after 42 years as a Police Office. Tracey is just about to retire from the Australian Medical Association in order to enjoy time with Ian.
We spent the past 2 and a half years house-sitting while busily being 'owner builders' and absolutely loved it.
Since June 2016 we have completed 16 house-sitting assignments, and are planning on travelling in 2019 and beyond with a view to expanding on our house-sitting experience all over Australia!
We have for many years been members of the international couch-surfing community, and hosted many overseas visitors as guests in our home. We have also made new life-long friends by making contact with fellow overseas Couchsurfers when visiting China, Canada, Malaysia, Nepal and Vietnam.
We are very happy to provide references upon request, so don't hesitate t ask.
Feel free to contact us to see if we are available to house sit and care for your house, garden, and domestic pets.
We will try to be flexible regarding the length of time you require us, while working around the house-sits that we may have already committed to.
We hope that you will be happy to have us house sit for you!
Cheers, Tracey & Ian
