Hello, we are Mike and Tina, a semi-retired couple. We have returned to Australia, after living in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam for almost 18 months. We have loved our time in SE Asia, loved the food and the different cultures of the various countries we have visited. Mike works on-line casually as an Environmental Editor - after a career in Environmental Management. Tina volunteers with local community groups when she can, after working in sales for over 30years. We have no dependents, are non-smokers and very light drinkers.

We are keen to explore new Asian locations, learn about them as the locals see them - and although we are new to housesitting, as homeowners ourselves, we want to reassure you that we will look after your animal family, home, pool and garden, as if they were our own. We have owned investment properties and understand what it is like to trust your place to relative strangers.

Mike loves gardening (orchids a specialty!), and Tina is a natural housekeeper. The homes that we have rented have been left in a cleaner condition than when we first moved in!

While our busy careers have prevented us from having pets in recent years, we have both owned and raised dogs in the past. When possible we even 'house-sat' over the weekend, dogs and cats from our local pet shop!

Australian borders remain closed due to COVID as do SE Asian countries. We hope to be able to travel internationally again in 2022.
