My wife Denise (fifty eight), and I (sixty two), have been married for thirty eight years and are both retired. I worked as an accountant and Denise as a secretary, kindergarten assistant and bookseller until running our own coffee shop for twenty years. I have been a Justice of the Peace for over 30 years and attach a police clearance check in our references. We are both fit, non smokers and our interests include travelling, surfing, hiking, reading, snorkelling and gardening.

We adore all sorts of animals and have owned pets our whole lives including dogs, cats, horses, birds, guinea pigs, chickens and fish. Being adventurous and fast learners, we are even game to look after unusual animals.  Our love of animals instigated our change to a vegan diet and environmentally friendly lifestyle a few years ago, though we will not be trying to convert your pets to a plant-based diet!  Denise has been trained in Reiki, and would be happy to utilise this therapy to help alleviate your pet’s anxiety or assist healing as our vet found Reiki a beneficial complementary treatment for many animal ailments.

A few years ago we sold our house of twenty three years and moved into a unit at the Gold Coast in Australia to enable us to pursue our love of travel. We are flexible with no preconceived ideal house sit and simply love to experience different cultures and meet new people. As we have lived in places as diverse as London and Hong Kong and travelled throughout much of Asia, the UK and Europe, we are very adaptable.  From our large house in an Australian country town to a unit in the tourist hub, we relish change and easily adjust to any situation. 

As we adore animals and have trouble deciding where to go, house sitting is the perfect solution. Most of our travel had been as tourists, staying only briefly in each place and now we have the time and opportunity we enjoy actually living in new environments. We view house sitting as a win win situation.  We get to stay in a lovely home and revel in a different culture, make new friends (both two legged and furry ones) and enjoy local cuisine and attractions. Basically we discover what life is like as a local in your area. You benefit by having a responsible professional couple taking the utmost care of everything, giving you peace of mind that your home and pets are being safely looked after by competent and caring people.

We had extensive experience house sitting in Australia, then in 2017 set off on a six month adventure to Europe and the UK, incorporating eleven housesits.  We were lucky to have housesits in Brighton (2), London and Garforth in England; two in Scotland; two in country France & Paris; Hannover in Germany and Zurich in Switzerland.  We always received 5 star ratings and glowing reports.  All our housesits included looking after pets (dogs, cats, poultry and a terrapin) and the owners were all keen for repeat house sits.  We met such wonderful people and enjoyed the antics and companionship of their pets so much we are planning a similar trip commencing late March, 2018 incorporating Asia and Canada as well.

We love animals, are keen gardeners, clean and tidy and would be very conscientious of looking after your home, cherished pets and belongings as if they were our own. With our proficiency in home maintenance and renovating, we can foresee and resolve potential problems. We are trustworthy with vast house sitting experience and pride ourselves on our professionalism and expertise.  Once we have committed and agreed to take on an assignment we will give a hundred percent to ensure we excel above your expectations. We and your pets look forward to skyping you about our latest adventures!

Look no further if you want a mature, reliable, flexible and very competent couple to safeguard your home and pets. Although we love exploring new areas, our top priority is always your pets. Our biggest problem will be saying goodbye to your beloved pets when we leave!
