I am a single man in his sixties, in excellent health, with Australian and British citizenship, who retired five years ago after seventeen years as Headmaster of one of Australia/Melbourne's prestigious private schools. I am very domesticated and independent, and can provide excellent references from Melbourne and Los Angeles and London as to my dependability. I am currently living near Richmond in Greater London.
I am happy to perform any household duties. I can undertake not to be away from the house overnight at any time.
I am looking for a short-term to medium house-sit, say three - six weeks, but am flexible. I have been house-sitting since 2007, and have done this in London, France, Boston, Los Angeles, New York. I have regularly house- sat in Los Angeles for a month and have been invited back each year. Most recently I cat-sat for a lady in Brooklyn, New York for three weeks in May 2011 and in 2013 for five cats in Perth, Western Australia. In 2014 I have cat-sat in Norwich, Cambridge and London UK for a week each time. I do not expect any remuneration for my house- sitting duties, just a comfortable house in an interesting place! I am in excellent health and am very active.
