John and I are a healthy, non smoking, married couple living at Coral Cove, Queensland, Australia who love travelling overseas and in Australia. Housesitting gives us unique and authentic experiences of living in different communities / countries and the satisfaction of looking after adorable pets in their homes.
We want you to go on holiday feeling comfortable and relaxed, knowing we are looking after your home and pets as you would. We also give you regular updates on home and pets.
