We are John & Jan, a semi retired couple  who enjoy travelling in a non tourist fashion. We live in Melbourne Australia. Usually we are most interested in housesits in London or the Greater London area as our daughter is working in London and we visit fairly frequently. Also Nottinghamshire where we have family. 

We also travel extensively within Australia and are currently seeking housesitting assignments in NSW, Queensland  and in Victoria outside of Melbourne.

We are keen gardeners who can look after your home and garden efficiently and happy to look after cats and small pets. We have had cats as pets most of our lives so can claim some expertise there.

Non smokers. We are both fully vaccinated for COVID 19.

Please see our excellent references.
