We, Julia and Gordon, are a fit and healthy sixty-two and sixty-nine years young and have owned, created and cared for three homes (two of which we built, one on seven acres). Gordon is a good handy man and cook and enjoys creating music! We love animals and would love to take care of your family members while you are away. In more recent years we shared our lives with two dogs Hardy a beagle and Toby a border-collie kelpie cross. We are experienced house sitters who have looked after all sorts of dogs including young puppies, cats, chickens and fish. Julia has just completed a PhD in education for sustainability is now learning languages and considering the next place to settle and call home. Neither of us smoke. Happy to provide referees. We look forward to hearing from you.
