We are a non-smoking, retired professional couple. University of Auckland library director and mechanical engineer respectively. We own our own home by the water-front in Auckland, New Zealand. Since 2004 we have spent six months each year travelling around Australia in our Toyota Landcruiser and have also been housesitting for extended periods. We have now sold our Landcruiser and prospective house-sits therefore need to be close to public transport. We are fit and energetic, love walking, swimming, gardening,photography, reading and travel. We look forward to caring for your home, garden and pets. References can be obtained from our previous house sits and employers on request.
