More information about this house sitter
We are a retired couple, living "The Dream" in our 24ft Kingdom caravan, with our 16yr old Ragdoll cat Misty Rose. We spent 10 months of 2016, house sitting, volunteering and travelling Tasmania, which excited us about our future, and we have just finished our 12 months there again in 2022 - 2023
Peter is a retired electrician, and is happy to assist with small repairs and maintenance, lawn mowing or any other requests to keep things operational while you have a relaxing holiday.
For wild bird lovers - "PLEASE" - have no fears about Misty Rose! Whenever she is outside the house or the caravan, she has her harness and lead on - and "she has no idea" about birds other than to fear them - particularly the Noisy Miners.
Being able to "take our house with us" - we are flexible, self contained and can even live "off the grid" if needs be. We love meeting new people, finding "out of the way places", and allowing those we help, to have peace of mind that their home and possessions are in safe and secure hands. We do have our own mobile data - so we don't have to use yours at home.
We have "sat homes" in Stanthorpe, (6 weeks) Wamuran (7 weeks), Curra (near Gympie) (7 days), Bruny Island Tasmania (12 nights), Bellerive - Hobart (3 weeks), and Buderim (6 months), Kilcoy and Woodford 4 months), Ipswich (1 month), Thornlands (8 months), Hobart (5 months), Wynyard (5 months) and Landsborough (3 months) so we are available and capable to meet all of your needs. All of our home owners are happy for us to pass on their contact details - should you ever need "personal references." We just love leaving a house sit - "better than when we arrived" - and if possible, even repairing or refurbishing things that you didn't even know were broken - OR had been struggling with for years.
Peter does have a National Police Reference (12/05/17)
By house sitting for more than a week, we love to invest ourselves into "your local community" and get to know your neighbours and community better. We volunteer wherever possible as we love to "get involved."
UPDATE - (April 2023) After 2 years and 3 months travelling all except Western Australia, we are now back in South East Queensland for 6 - 12 months. Read more...
