Philip is a retired police officer, qualified cycle mechanic and keen cyclist. Experienced at DIY, he can turn his hand to most things (especially things mechanical) and is endowed with a good deal of common sense.
Maureen is a retired nurse, hard working and dedicated. She is very practical, a keen gardener, good cook, and competent at DIY, especially decorating.
We have been married for thirty years, raised two children and believe strongly in eating healthily and staying fit.
We love dogs and they were part of our family whilst the children were growing up.
The principal reason why we want to house sit is to experience, first hand, life in a different part of the world and in a community unknown to us. To this end, we are flexible in location and duration. We have travelled extensively in the past and often ask ourselves, 'What is it actually like to live here'? Hopefully, house sitting will provide the opportunity to find out.
We are just starting out on the house sitting journey. However, we are experienced home owners ourselves and have often used private houses whilst travelling. We treat those homes as we do our own and always get good reviews. We are a mature, responsible, conscientious couple, who will look after your home and pets like our own.
