Hello, we’re Nicole and Scott, an Australian couple in our late 40s. For the past decade, we’ve been living on a little farm and running an accommodation business in the beautiful foothills of the Victorian alps – we sold the property almost a year ago and are taking some time out to travel and experience life in other countries, before we move back to the city for a change of career and a new chapter in our lives.
We are non-smokers, responsible, quiet, flexible and reliable – and we love animals! One of the main reasons we like to housesit while we travel, aside from being able to take things slowly and feel like part of a local community for a while, is to have the companionship of furry friends along the way. Sadly we lost our little cat to lymphoma last year after 15 wonderful years with her, and we miss her terribly! So we know 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 a lot of great housesitters out there, but we would be very grateful to be given the chance to earn your trust. We have 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 housesitters take care of our place in the past, so we know what is expected of us as sitters!
And of course, we will love and care for your pets and lavish them with affection in your absence. We have shared our lives at various times with cats and dogs and other animals ranging from horses to chickens, and 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 recent police checks and are more than happy to provide more information about ourselves, as well as 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.
We're open to housesitting almost anywhere whilst we're travelling - we have certain periods in which we'll be in the US and Europe but there is quite a lot of flexibility with dates, so please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Please ask if there’s anything else that you’d like to know about us. We hope very much to hear from you!
