I am a single man in excellent health, with Australian and British citizenship, now retired 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 a range of homeowners for whom I have house-sat as to my dependability. I am currently living near Richmond in Greater London but enjoy travelling world-wide.
I am happy to perform any household duties. I can undertake not to be away from the house overnight at any time. I am very experienced with cats, both indoor and outdoor.
I am looking for a short-term to medium house-sit, say one - six weeks, but am flexible. I have been house-sitting since 2007, and have done this in London, France, Boston, Los Angeles, New York, Cambridge, Dublin, Edinburgh, Philadelphia and Barcelona. I regularly house- sat in Los Angeles for a month and was invited back each year. In 2017 I cat-sat in Brooklyn, New York over Easter, in Dublin for two weeks in July, in August for a week in Edinburgh and in North London in September. I looked after two dogs in Melbourne, Australia from December 2017 until mid January In 2018 I looked after a cat in Barcelona for a week at Easter and in late August will be doing the same in North London.
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. Previous home-owners will be happy to provide references on request.
