More InformationRetired solicitor and wife, Simon & Verity (both early 70's), fit and active, non-smokers and social drinkers who live in Adelaide, South Australia.
We have owned our own homes in London and Adelaide, are keen gardeners and consider ourselves houseproud, honest and conscientious. We both love travelling and living in new places and minding pets is a bonus for us as we don't have any of our own now. Our cat "emigrated" from England with Simon and led a happy life with us, even living on a houseboat for a time!
We have recently found out that the couple we housesat for in Italy in 2010 are coming to Sydney by ship and have booked into a hotel for a week. They arrive on the 21st February and fly to Cairns on the 28th, so we thought how nice it would be to travel to Sydney to see them again. We would be happy to extend that time slightly if a longer housesit was required but we do need to be in Sydney itself.
We have travelled extensively throughout Australia and Europe since we retired in 2007 and have now done in excess of forty housesits over the past ten years. We have been invited back to nearly every home we have minded – four homes we have sat three times and five homes we have sat twice. We have done housesits in Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany and England, all in recent years and if course many in Australia, the most recent last winter.
We are happy to supply excellent references and also Police Clearance Certificates.
If you would like to know more, please email us with your telephone number and we would be very glad to call you and have a chat. Alternatively we could try talking on Skype.
