Hello, we are Mike and Tina, now retired couple, living in our own home in Sippy Downs, Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
In 2019, we 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 is retired after a career in Environmental Management and more recently as an Environmental Editor. Tina is retired from her hospitality role in aged care, after a career in medical and realestate sales. 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 fairly 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 had prevented us from having pets, 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!
In 2022, we looked after a beautiful dog and two kitties on the Gold Coast, and we returned to Bangkok, looking after Mutley for a second time.
We are grateful that we can, once again, have an extended trip to SE Asia, leaving Australia on the 1st May We will be in Malaysia for three months from the 7th August, based in Penang, and we would happily consider short term asssignments in Malaysia.
Thank you for reading our profile.
