We are a fit, active, mature, self-reliant English/Australian couple. Recently sold our previous family home and have just finished renovating our new house. Merv is very handy around the house and we did lots of the renovation ourselves.
Like you, we have experienced the pleasures, trials, and tribulations that accompany home and pets.
We love reading and learning, cooking, experiencing new cultures, walking, listening to music, and being outdoors.
Mervyn was a Music Tutor and Band Conductor with extensive experiences in brass and wind instruments. Paulina worked in administrative and accounting positions most of her working life and is a very systematic and organized person.
With our problem solving capabilities we are able to deal with the regular maintenance issues that arise and we do know when to call the plumber! We are adaptable to different lifestyles, cultures and environments.
Why We want to house-sit
We both love experiencing new places and learning about new cultures. Caring for someone’s home allows us to see areas we might otherwise overlook. Finally, house-sitting allows us to see where in the world we might choose to settle down when the time comes. From owning our own homes, we know how important caring properly for a home and possessions are and we would care for your home and belongings as if they were ours. We want to offer this service to others.
Pet and Animal Experience:
We are both animal lovers and have a wide variety of experience with animals. Mervyn owned cats for most of his life and also dogs over the years. While growing up, we had chickens, ducks as well as pigeons. Cats like to be around people and that they do get very stressful if left on their own. From having important pets of our own, we know they are family. We would treat your pets as if they were allowing us to be part of their family for a while.
Garden and Yard Care Experience:
Our experiences and skills in yard and property care include:
Growing and maintaining vegetable garden and flower beds
Routine running of a household
We would use these skills and knowledge to care for your property and garden with the love and attention we gave to ours.
P.S. We can, of course, provide sound references and documentary evidence of a clear police record from the Australian Commonwealth Police.
