My wife and I are now both retired. I was a Deputy (foreman) in the coal mining industry, my wife worked as a secretary for twenty years at The University of Newcastle. We are both fit and active, non smokers and take a keen interest in our home and garden. We built and have lived in our home which overlooks beautiful Lake Macquarie near Newcastle, for over forty years.
We are experienced housesitters with excellent references, having cared for homes, pets and livestock from magnificent homes on acreage to a terrace house at Mosman on Sydney's leafy north shore. However, we don't do much of it, preferring to spend our time at home or travelling.
We usually only apply for housesits in areas we would like to visit, and are sure of our availability to make a firm commitment. Since retiring we have travelled extensively, but when at home our interests include gardening, tennis, walking and fishing. We are both animal lovers, and as you will see from our references, we have had the responsibility for the care and wellbeing of numerous beloved pets and livestock at previous housesits. We would be happy to speak with you to discuss your specific requirements and allow you to better assess our suitability for your particular situation. Our references (some attached and others prefer to give verbally) will indicate the standard of care and attention your home and pets will receive from us.
