We are a life-loving, non-smoking couple who are fortunate to have the opportunity to cycle slowly around the world and would welcome any opportunities to house sit for you and explore your part of the world.
In the past we worked as managers of youth hostels and thus have considerable experience of cleaning and maintaining buildings, old and new, and grounds. We are capable of small plumbing, electrical and other DIY tasks.
We have had plenty of experience of looking after our pets - cats, dogs, guinea pigs and rabbits - and have enjoyed the companionship that they give. We have also looked after chickens and horses for friends.
Recently we had the pleasure of house sitting and cat sitting in Australia for fifteen months, while the owners toured around the country. We kept in touch with the owners via and sent photos of the cats so that they were reassured that all was well with their property and pets. It was a thoroughly enjoyable time for us, settling down for a while, making new friends and exploring a new place and the locality.
We are both competent with computers and the Internet and both of us can drive.
If you feel we would be suitable to look after your house and pets, we'd love to hear from you. We can provide references.
