My husband and I are New Zealanders and are available to House and Pet sit while getting to know different areas of beauty and history around your country. We have always enjoyed travel, but we now have time to enjoy travel for longer periods of time with my husband being retired .
We are non-smoking, home and garden people and have gained much from the joys of sharing our lives with many animals over our married years, along with raising our two now adult children. We have lived in rural and city areas and also owned and ran our own Homestay for many years.
We are very young and healthy for our age and enjoy out-door activities. I am a Social worker and also work part-time as a Caregiver at a local Resthome. My husband has just retired and was a Head Teacher and is an excellent handyman with jobs that may need doing while you are away which could be discussed. We have enjoyed many house- sitting postings, getting to know and making firm friends with the animals and also the owners with a 'welcome-home' dinner prepared for them on their return, if they would like.
We have ph references and s available from around Australia (when we took a year off to Housesit and get to know the country, Vic,Adelaide,ACT,Qld and NSW) Police check can also be viewed.
I would like to tell you that when we apply for a situation it is with good faith that both parties should feel a 'win-win' afterwards and we have never pulled out or let anyone down.
