More information about this house sitter

Hi there!
We're Rod and Katrina and our three youngest beautiful daughters, Evie, Eliza and Heidi, ages 13, 11 and 8. Our girls love animals as much as we do and like us, are gentle and respectful with them. We delight in the opportunities presented to us through house sitting; caring for so many wonderful animals and homes and exploring new areas of Australia.

We also have two older children and two grandbabies. We are based in Kyogle, northern Nsw, where our oldest daughter Alaina lives, when not house sitting.

We are non-smokers. Rod is an electrical fitter/mechanic by trade and works as a handyman as we travel. We're debt-free, having sold our investments and our home on an acre for which Rod was an owner/builder. For the next few years, we intend to continue house sitting/caravanning while enjoying Australia as our daughters grow. We home educate our girls which perfectly suits our lifestyle.

During 2017-2018 we lived off-grid in our lovely ATV caravan on a friend's property for over 12 months. Where we lived, there was a wonderful menagerie of farm and domestic animals. Rod and I grew up with pet dogs and cats, and years ago had two gorgeous Papillons. We have also owned chickens, guinea pigs and goldfish. During our housesitting we have cared for horses, cows/calves, alpaca, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, guinea fowl, dogs, cats, birds and goldfish.

We are about to begin our 15th house sit, which is in the lovely Sunny Coast, caring for 2 beautiful labradors on 2 acres for 2 months. We also have another confirmed sit near Coffs Harbour for February 2020. We have more lovely reviews on another house sitting website and can forward these on at your request.

Loving pets and caring for properties, gardens and homes is something we have much experience with. It would be our pleasure to love and care for your home, pets and gardens for you!
