We are retired Australian public (civil) servants who, after nearly 35 years each of government work at executive level, are exploring new horizons and having new experiences. To this end, we have spent some time during the last few years travelling and housesitting in various parts of this amazing world.
In Australia, we are home owners so we know and fully understand the importance of the care, security and maintenance of one's home - especially when travelling (which we love!). In addition to the pleasure of enjoying the company of the pets we care for, house sitting gives us the opportunity to spend time "soaking up" the everyday experiences of living in various countries and locales.
We prefer locations with access to public transport as we don't always have a vehicle ourselves, although we do both drive and have clean driving records and maximum no claim bonuses on our vehicle insurances. Having said this, we do often hire vehicles depending on location and need.
We are both non-smokers. I am a keen gardener and walker and enjoy doggy company on my walks. I am a conscientious and fastidious cleaner and would look after your home and contents with care and respect. We have previously cared for dogs, cats, birds, fish, a mini guinea pig and a free range rabbit.
We can provide house sit and pet care references, character references and a police check. Online contact details can also be provided so you can "meet" us to assess our suitability.
We look forward to hearing from you. Wishing you safe and happy travels.
Jenny and Gary
