I am a retired female, school teacher ( 64 ) who enjoy all the usual pleasures of retirement - travel, good food and meeting new people. I am a non-smoker but a social drinker who enjoy good friends and good company.
my husband no longer travels as much due to health issues but he is well cared for by family while I travel.
Unfortunately our finances are limited so I would like to offer my services to care for your household's goods and chattel while you are away.
Plus we now have numerous positive references from all our home owners.
For example s://travelingmcmahans.wordpress meet-the-cast-of-the-great-10-year-anniversary-trip/:
Our house sits have included -
London ( twice for the same family ), Bathurst, NSW ( three times for the same family ) Liverpool ( UK ), Norfolk, Virginia ( twice for the same family ) Louisville ( Kentucky ) Maitland ( NSW ) Ackleton ( Shropshire, UK ) Church Enstone ( Oxfordshire, UK ) Fenwick ( Ontario, Canada ) Winona ( Minnesota, USA ) and Newark ( Delaware ). I have had experience with dogs, cats and birds. Some of the dogs were rescue pets. I don't mind looking after pets but big dogs ( larger than labrador-size )are not one my list of favourites. On the other hand cats, birds and small dogs are not a problem. Don't mind mowing household-size lawns, watering plants or walking your dog.
I am quite flexible with dates,times, etc and if things work out you may want to stay with us if you ever get to Australia.
What we really like about the house sit option is that you are based in one place so you get to know it and the people who live there.
Now booked up until late March, 2018.
