I'm a mature lady looking for any opportunity to assist you in caring for your home while you are away. At present I will not be taking on housesits with any animals to care for; homes and gardens only. I love exploring and experiencing living in other areas of Australia and around the world. Overseas travel always makes me appreciative my own 'backyard' of Australia. I love fun challenges, am open minded and flexible to try new things. I have been involved in many housecaring and caretaking roles in SA, Qld & Vic.
I have lived-in and looked after remote sheep and cattle stations, (along with my partner Steve's help when jobs are larger ones & if he is available to help me as he works away a lot). I have cared for large homes on acreages in the rural areas, and smaller private properties in small towns and cities.
I have cared for most types of animals and pets, but I now choose to care for housesits without animals. I've always taken pride, treating people's homes as my own. House-sitting has given me a healthy perspective on life, as I have met so many wonderful people.
I enjoy helping anyone I can, which makes my 'gypsy life' more interesting and rewarding! My work skills are varied with experience in many areas, so I am happy to help you out depending on requirements.
I will be able to housesit your property and only if the position requires one person, depending on the size of property in question. If Steve is available, then we are able to take on larger properties but only providing the extent of the work is not a full caretaking position. If it is a fulltime caretaking position that requires oth of us then an agreed weekly payment is required.
With a 'Can Do' attitude, I get things done promptly and well!! Being detailed, well organized and professional in all designated job requirements. In the past we have both maintained city businesses and properties, resort hi-rise complexes (paid as caretakers/cleaners), company and private rural farming properties, and all with excellent references.
With Steve's help, we always get basic maintenance jobs done where possible and ensure that homes and properties are left clean, tidy, safe and secure.
A security guard background serves me well in maintaining properties are secure and safe.
We are non smokers, but like an occasional social drink. We both are conscientious, reliable, honest, considerate and caring.
I am British born with Australia Citizen (Dual PPort). Steve is Australian born. We can provide good, reliable credentials. I have an open car license, (manual and automatic). We both have driven tractors and basic farm machines when necessary.
If required my partner has a MR Truck Licence and Forklift Licence, as well as many other tickets, if needed and if he is available.
Both of us have some farming, mining and harvesting machinery skills. Steve has a Blue Card/Yellow Card in; Construction and other tickets.
I am passionate in creative design, sales and marketing, fashion designs, metal and wood designs and get involved in outdoor activities where I can. I sell a fashion range of summer clothing.
I am available to house-sit in most rural and coastal areas of SA, Qld & Vic....
