We are a married,healthy, couple from Australia. We have been housesitting various homes and living in Europe/Turkey since July 2009 until September 2010. In each home we have had dogs and cats and sometimes chooks.This has been a wonderful experience and we have met some great home owners and their friends who have now become our friends.We love to immerse into the local community and get to know the area and people. We are currently based in Brisbane.I have set up a small importing business of tableware from Italy. I really can operate this mostly from my computer. My husband does some contract work from time to time and during the summer he works as a swim coach for our son who has Swimming school. However, we do try to be as flexible as possible. Since being back in Australia we have done multiple housesits at Pottsville on the North NSW coast, Bilambil West Tweed,(3)Birkdale Brisbane (4+) Marrickville Sydney (2) Albany Creek, Tamborine (2), Holland Park,(2)Mt. Gravatt,Wellington Point, New Farm,Coolangatta (2) and on a farm outside Lismore. The brackets indicate the repeat visits we have sat at some housesits.
We love the gypsy/nomadic lifestyle and also get a buzz out of looking after peoples homes and pets.We also enjoy the friends and special relationships formed since becoming housesitters.
