RETIRED English Tutor and Forensic Nurse

We are an active (non-smoking) retired professional couple. We love animals, are avid travellers and willing to consider almost anywhere.

We are proud grandparents  of 7 girls and 1 boy and regularly travel about  both overseas and interstate  when visiting our family.

Our 3 beautiful pets have passed away from old age. Oscar Cat, Miss Carmen (a very glamourous rat) and our beautiful Suma Girl (pictured).

We have had very successful short term housesits in Silver Springs/Washington, USA , Anavysos, Greece , Brisbane,Queensland August/Sep 2114, Hobart, Tasmania,  Jan 2016, Hervey Bay, Qld 2016, Lake Chapala, Mexico, September 2017 plus regularly look after pets/houses for family and friends  in Brisbane,  Toowoomba and Sydney being Meryll's hometown.

Although retired from Nursing (Brian worked for Queensland Health for 37 years) Brian still works at a  Police Citizens Youth Club as a Judo coach and  enjoys his refereeing. Brian has been a Judoga Black Belt 4th Dan for 57 years while Meryll is retired from Queensland Dept of Education where she worked for 14 years. We had our last police checks in 2013 prior to us both visiting a Cambodian school on a TAFE teaching programme.

In an earlier life Meryll was a cartographer working for international mining companies in Sydney before moving to Qld. Brian in his earlier life drove overland from UK to India in a landrover and has sailed the Atlantic from Grand Canaria to Trinidad amongst other adventures.

We know it takes a lot of trust to allow someone into your home and being very houseproud, we are confident in promising that we take particular care in treating our house sit homes to the same standard as we do our own even attending to light gardening/odd jobs if required. It is our intention  to leave you feeling totally at ease in leaving your property and animals in our care. We've even been known to walk dogs in the snow.

We live on a small property and are dependent on rain water tanks only so  know the value of conserving water. 

If you are interested in us we can provide addresses for further and  updated character references if you so desire. We can also provide  further photgraphs of our home etc.
