We are a retired Australian couple who are happy to housesit anywhere in the world. And we have!!
Our names are Robert and Christine, known as Rob and Chris, and we are currently travelling in Australia. We have a small caravan and are able to travel wherever we want and we would love to come and look after your home, furry friends and/or garden.
We have been housesitting for many years and have travelled extensively throughout Europe looking after pets along the way.
We love housesitting as we see it as a way for all parties to benefit.
For you - your pets will be much happier in their own home than left in kennels, your home is safe and secure while you are away, rather than being left empty and your garden will be well tended.
For us - we get to travel to amazing places and enjoy the company of gorgeous pets and to have a nice place to stay for a few weeks. We love pets and gardening and now that we no longer have our own it is wonderful to share! And, by the way we are both great housekeepers.
We are both extremely healthy and fit and active so will be able to do whatever is required in your home or on your property. We love going for walks together but it is always better to have one or more 4 legged companions. We have owned many pets over the years - both dogs and cats as well as farm animals.
We have completed over 30 housesits in Australia, England, Ireland, Wales, France, Italy and Morocco. We have previously housesat on rural properties, city homes and suburban houses, looking after both young and older dogs, cats, cattle, chickens and other birds. We have an ongoing friendship with several of our ‘housesit owners’. We are at home looking after houses in the city, country, beach ....anywhere really! Having grown up on a farm, Rob is very capable with livestock, dams, pumps, fences etc so a rural property is right up his alley! We have had our own small property, nine hectares, where we raised a few beef cattle, had chickens and a substantial vegetable garden. Rob is a great handyman with the ability to fix pretty much anything. Chris is a great homemaker and cook, loving to have everything spick and span all the time. Your house will be spotless when you return and your pets will be happy . She has experience with show dogs so knows how to keep your furry friends looking their best. Together, pets and gardening are our passions. We had a very substantial vegetable garden at our home and also have experience with flower gardens, tropical gardens and ornamental gardens. We will look after your pets and your house as if they were our own and will love to tend your garden.
We look forward to being able to help you have a worry-free holiday knowing your home and pets are being loved and well looked after while you are away. We are also very excited to experience life in many different countries. Please feel free to check our references.
