Hello, we're Nicole and Scott, an Australian couple in our late 40s. For the past ten years or so, we've been living on a little farm and running an accommodation business in the beautiful foothills of the Victorian alps. Just over a year ago, we sold the property to go travelling for a while - overseas mainly, as well as a bit closer to home! We've loved every minute of it, and through housesitting have met some great people and their pets along the way.
We're non-smokers, responsible, quiet, flexible and reliable and we love animals! Housesitting is a fantastic way to travel - it's great to be able to take things slowly, stop in one place for a while and feel like part of a local community. But the thing we love most about it is the chance to have the companionship of furry friends. We lost our little cat a couple of years ago to lymphoma after 15 wonderful years with her - and we really miss her! So we understand how important pets are within a family and promise to look after yours whilst you are away as if they were our own.
We know that there are lots of great housesitters out there, but we'd be very grateful to be given the chance to earn your trust. We have plenty of recent housesitting experience, a solid history of property and garden ownership and maintenance and will treat your home with the utmost respect. We also have had sitters take care of our place in the past, so we know what is expected of us whilst we're taking care of your home!
And of course, we will care for your pets and lavish them with affection in your absence. We've shared our lives at various times with cats, dogs and horses - both our own and other people's - and over the past year have also looked after happy chickens and a very lovely rabbit. We look forward to meeting and looking after your furred, finned and feathered friends!
We have housesitting and character references (including one from our vet) and police checks and are more than happy to provide links to our holiday cottage's Facebook page and feedback about us as guests on other sites, so that you can get a feel for who we are.
Please ask if there's anything else that you'd like to know about us. At the moment we can be fairly flexible with housesit dates, so please don't hesitate to get in touch. We hope very much to hear from you!
