More InformationWe retired after selling our property management business and are an active and very healthy, non smoking couple aged 75 and 72. Because of our business experience we are very familiar with the proper care of homes and the needs of owners.
A number of years ago, between businesses, we looked after friends businesses, homes and a B & B and also have cared for our friends’ pets in our home.
We own our home where we have lived for over 40 years. Until recently, we had 4 chickens, and also a very faithful old dog, Hoover, a kelpie and cocker spaniel cross, who passed away, aged 15.
Since 2015 we have completed 4 successful house sits at Somers Victoria, Margate Tasmania, Bulahdelah New South Wales (We looked after 12 black angus cattle, chooks and Jack an Australian Terrier), Port Wilunga and Adelaide, South Australia and Burradoo, Southern Highlands New South Wales.
We stayed at Margate, Tasmania, for 3 months between July and October, 2015, and maintained a beautiful 5 acre garden of mainly European influence trees and shrubs and an amazing vegetable garden. Also 3 dorper sheep and Lottie, the failed police dog.
We are able to forward details of these owners for you to contact, as well as other personal referees.
In the past we have also used house sitters. Most of the experiences were successful, therefore, we fully understand the requirements of the home owner and the responsibilities of the house sitter.
We prefer a country environment, and love the cooler weather. We are available from Mid May this year.
We are happy to speak with you on the telephone or Skype if you wish.
