Hi, I am a responsible, active, non smoking retired manager available to housesit. We have just returned to Australia after living in Canada for four years. My wife, Heather, will accompany me when her work allows. I have had only one housesit in Ontario as we were engaged in other travels in our spare time and Couchsurfing.
I have always had pets. I love dogs, birds,cats and most other animals and I also rode horses for many years.
When in Australia, we lived on a forty acre farm in the Central West of NSW and kept cattle but now have moved to the Blue Mountains, NSW. We love the country life but have become accustomed to city living whilst in Ontario. I am also an avid photographer and love to draw and paint landscapes.
Heather and I are very house proud and I can assure you that I, (when traveling) would look after your property and pets, as if my own own.
I am not after financial reward. I would just like to visit and safeguard your home while I explore, and photograph, what your area has to offer.
I have horticultural, turf management qualifications and a Land Resource Management degree.
I/we have had one house sitting position to date and can now supply a reference from the house owners beside the police check and other references. I can also provide our Couchsurfing profile as a reference due to staying with many families in North America and the United Kingdom. Cheers, Denis
