More InformationHello! My name's Delia and my partner's name is Michael. We are a trustworthy, caring and reliable couple with tons of house sitting experience (from the hot, humid jungle of Costa Rica to the frigid cold -30 degrees temperatures of Canada, haha!). We are both physically fit. Both non-smokers. Both massive animal lovers. Which is the reason we are still house sitting even though we are currently located in my home town, Adelaide.
Having completed four years of study, 2012-2016 I made a living as a musician, screen writer, actor and director. I also tutored private singing lessons from home. As well as continuing with the arts, I worked for an organisation called Inkling Women, where I assisted in the coordination and design of a range of programs which are tailored specifically to improve people's lives and careers. I am currently studying to become a Birth and Postpartum Doula (--the role of the doula is to provide physical, emotional, and informational support to families before, during, and after childbirth).
Michael was a mechanical engineering student who thrived in hospitality, having had lots of experience helping his parents with their catering and functions business. He currently manages a wine bar in Adelaide (The Noble Gentleman). He is a skilled fencer and has competed in tournaments all around the world. He taught private and group fencing lessons to students aged 8 - 17. He is at home working outdoors (and in the cold!) as he grew up helping out with his family's dairy farm on their 360 acre lot in Canada.
We discovered house sitting when we were planning a year's adventure to Costa Rica, Canada and Hawaii. We thought it would be a great way to save on money as well as to live life as a local in places we may not stumble upon otherwise. We completely fell in love with it. We are comfortable looking after animals (and houses) great and small. We have experience in administering medications and following strict regimes.
We are new to MindaHome previously having used Trusted House Sitters for most of our previous sits.
Upon request we will happily send you a link to our reviews. (This webpage won't allow me to add a link to them here)
We both adore animals and couldn't imagine a life without them. Currently we are unable to have any pets where we live. You can rest assured that should we house sit for you, your pet/s would be treated with the utmost care, affection and love. (As would your home!)
We are happy to provide you with our police checks.
We understand how important it is to you to have reliable and considerate people you can trust to look after everything for you while you're away and we can ensure that you will be 100% comfortable and satisfied with our services should you choose us.
