We are Carole Anne and Clair Hochstetler - a mature American couple ages 67 and 61 - who have been providing peace of mind and loving care for pets, plants, and homes for almost seven years in 40 different neighborhoods in Canberra, the capital city of Australia, while Clair has been managing a department at the main hospital of this city.
Three of our young grandchildren live in Oak Park, Illinois and we want to spend 3 or 4 months in the same neighborhood, or somewhere nearby. (We moved to Australia from the Great Lakes area of the USA in June 2008, so Carole Anne could get together more often with her sister who lives in AUS and these grandchildren have all been born since then.)
We are both smoke-free and very tidy with professional skills, plenty of experience, and a number of repeat assignments among a growing band of happy home and pet owners of dogs, cats, birds, and fish. Your home will definitely be left at least as clean as we found it - often even better! We can supply many references, all of whom can vouch for that.
You can gain a lot more information about us and the details of what we offer by going to our "Peace of Mind At Home" mentioned in the ad above.
Imagine going on holiday not having a care in the world, free to enjoy your trip to its fullest extent, then coming home to find your gardens looking lovely, your pets relaxed and happy, and your home looking as neat and tidy as if the maid just came through. This is the experience we offer you: Peace of Mind At Home.
Though the phone numbers below are all in Australia (country code 61) we can ring you - or converse anytime with Skype or FaceTime - if you would find that preferable.
