Honest and Reliable Professional Couple available to look after your house and pets while you enjoy your trip.
We are Des (58), and Jo (53), a ‘young at heart’ couple who have travelled the globe extensively over the last years.
Currently we are in Mexico and travelling Latin and South America for the next 12 months. We are actively seeking house and pet sit positions during this time.
Both born and raised in New Zealand, we are true kiwis with a love of travel, people and other cultures, photography, nature, reading/learning, gardening, hiking and the outdoors.
We are both self employed in professional business, and currently working primarily online. This location independence makes it easy for us to plan our itinerary around your travel needs. Des is a Business Consultant and Jo is a Financial Consultant. This allows us to work remotely as long as we have a good internet connection.
We bring the utmost professionalism, strong work ethic, and respect for your property and environment.
Why we want to house sit?
House-sitting provides a great setting for us; being able to work in a quiet, private environment in different locations. We love to connect and experience locations as a ‘local’, and to stay for longer periods of time in one place. We enjoy different cultures and adapt easily to change.
We love pets, in particular small dogs, but due to our lifestyle we currently have no pets. We happily fill this void by looking after friends dog's in our own home. We love this time with 'Jody', our adopted poodle, 'Cassie', a very pretty white Bischon and Roxy the Shitzu. Pet sitting allows us to love and make special friends with your pet's in return for the companionship and fun they bring.
We have many years experience in home/garden care and maintenance, cosmetic home repair and decorating, along with garden design. We are caring, meticulous people who bring loyalty, consistency, trustworthiness and resourcefulness to all our experiences and adventures.
We have both owned our own homes all our lives. Presently we are living in our own home in Queenstown, New Zealand, although about to travel to Central and South America. We also own rental properties which we manage ensuring tenants are kept happy and the properties are looked after.
We have had many pets over the years, including cats and dogs. Des had Cocker Spaniels and Jo had an apricot poodle, a Rhodesian Ridgeback and lots of cats.
Integrity and respect for maintaining a home-owner's privacy and personal property, is fundamental to us.
In addition to the above, we are unencumbered, which means we are free to travel at any time. We are also in excellent health, have very good morals and work ethics. We do not have any young children or pets, nor do we smoke or have any other addictive habits.
