We are a retired professional couple. We are fluent in English and German. Wir sprechen Deutsch.
We are a truly international couple: one from the USA, one from Germany; we lived in Austalia for well over 20 years. In 2016 we moved back to Germany, to Augsburg (near Munich). From 10 acres into a house that was built in 1635!
Von einem 4 ha 'grünem' autarken Anwesen, in ein Haus, das 1635 erbaut wurde.
We love the extremes. Our last property was situated in sub-alpine Victoria, Australia, altitude of nine hundred meters - quite high compared with most of Australia - after living in Melbourne for many years. It was a 'green' property fully self-contained with only the telephone connected to the 'outside' world. We have had plenty of experience in maintaining our homes (my husband is a great handyman) along with sheds and gardens.
We have also had many occasions to care for our friends' pets: cats, dogs, horses, geese, chicken, fish as well as many others during our house-sits. Our rural home was environmentally friendly, using only solar power with rain/tank water, septic tank etc.We are accustomed to physical work and hence are very fit. We've owned dogs, a cat, and love animals in general.
We each hold several university degrees, play and enjoy listening to music, and love to read and travel extensively domestically and internationally.
We enjoy the outdoors with day hikes and long walks. We are extremely reliable and well organised.
We look forward to hearing from you! We are experienced house- and pet-sitters and we are happy to provide further references from Sweden, Switzerland, Italy, France and USA.
