Hello, we're Nicole and Scott, an Australian couple in our late 40s. Nicole's from the city, Scott's from the country and for the past decade, we've been living on a little farm and running an accommodation business in the foothills of the Victorian alps. About two years 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 and reliable and we love animals! Housesitting is a fantastic way to travel and one of the things 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 recently have also been lucky to look after chickens and a very lovely rabbit. We look forward to meeting and looking after your furred, finned and feathered friends!
We've been lucky to have ten housesits in Australia and the US over the past 18 months, and have various housesitting and character references (including one from our vet), as well as police checks. We can also 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 that you'd like to know about us. At the moment we have some flexibility with dates, so please don't hesitate to get in touch. We hope very much to hear from you!
