More information about this house sitter

We are retired professionals and long-time residents of Canberra.
Last year we sold our house with the intention of buying a new home in a warmer part of Australia.
We were very unsure as to where exactly we would like to live, so travelling around Queensland or northern NSW was our plan.
We soon found out that living out of a suitcase, even in apartments, (almost always with compromised kitchens), proved to be very difficult. We don't enjoy eating out much and try to follow a healthy eating plan, so being able to cook our own meals was important.
Also, we wanted to write along the way, and moving around too often just seemed counterintuitive to our goals.
This led to our joining Mindahome, the idea being that it might give us a feel for where we'd be happy to live, and at the same time, provide a service.
Our initial two testimonials were all we could provide when starting out. One is from a friend whose house we prepared for auction many years ago. It sold quickly, so I must have done something right! The other is from a colleague with whom I worked for many years.
But now we have two new reviews that anyone can access within the Mindahome site, I believe.
We both enjoy gardening, and would be happy to maintain yours if that were a requirement. We also had a pool in our previous home, so the demands of caring for one are well understood.
Over the years we have renovated three of our homes and our skills in doing so, developed exponentially. This means that we are capable of responding to small maintenance jobs if and when they occur.
We are non-smokers, who enjoy cooking and eating good food (with a glass of wine, which in our opinion, makes everything taste so much better!).
Over the years we have had a couple of pets, so looking after yours would be an easy task for us. As we walk every day, be assured you will come home to super-fit dogs....cats seem able to determine supreme fitness all by themselves!
This has been a very interesting venture for us, one we have embraced with responsibility. If we can help you, please contact us through a Mindahome message.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Alistair and Maria
