Hello, Isabell and Mike here and our thanks for visiting our HouseCarers profile. We are a retired couple and experienced house sitters.
We are fit and healthy, adventurous, and non smokers. We would like to put ourselves forward for your consideration when making a 'house sitting' choice regarding the care of your home, property and pet(s).
Several years ago we settled into our life of retirement with a determination to make our senior years great years. Like many other couples, we had always planned to travel once we retired, not only within Australia but other countries as well. Included in our travel plan was our intention to continue our long membership and involvement with 'HouseCarers' so we could mix our travels with house sitting.
Our basic reason for this was due mainly to our own experiences having house sitters during our working years. On many occasions when on annual holidays we had house sitters look after our home, property and pets. We found it a wonderful and successful way of taking care of our home and pets while away.
In addition it also gave us peace of mind while travelling. We also found it gave us an important insight into the trust, responsibility and requirements expected from your house sitters....something we now, as house sitters, give back to any home and pet owners we house sit for.
We commenced our combination of travel and house sitting in 2009 and to date we have enjoyed 21 house sitting engagements for families and their pets all round Australia. We have also throughly enjoyed 9 house sits outside of Australia over the last 5 years. These have been in the USA in the States of California, Arizona, Texas and Oregon.
To date in 2018 we have completed two house sits in Hervey Bay one being a long term sit of three months.
If you feel we would be suitable for consideration for house-sitting your home, property and pet(s) we would be delighted in discussing your requirements with you. References are available. We can be contacted anytime via our address as follows: or phone us in Queensland We can also link up via web-cam.
Our kind regards, Isabell and Mike
