We are two retired professionals who own our home in beautiful St. Helens, Tasmania, on George's Bay - 15 minutes from Binalong Bay and the Bay of Fires. We enjoy visiting warmer parts of Australia during our colder months -between June and October and are experienced house sitters. We have two small dogs who allow us to share their home and we have a regular sitter to stay with them during our holidays. We have a lifelong experience with dogs, cats, small birds and aviaries .Animals are always a pleasure to mind , light garden care and lawn care a normal part of our life ,as are small handyman home maintenance/repairs around the house , and we care for your property as if it were our own - with respect and utmost care. Quiet walks on beaches and in reserves and parks (plus one keen fisherman) fill our entertainment needs, along with occasional nights at the cinema and daytime wandering around markets etc. We drive our own car from Tassie , giving us independence and the ability to enjoy each area we stay. We are both non-smokers and non-drinkers and also long-term well-respected members of our local community. References are provided to every prospective house owner we contact.
