About Matt & Annel
We're a South African family, planning to travel the world with our Special needs daughter, Anika and son Reuben. We are self-employed and run an educational training business in South Africa as well as an import and distribution company. We can work from anywhere with an internet connection.
We've travelled extensively and now want to show the kids the world and also show other special needs families that you don't have to be geographically bound because your child has special needs. Anika is a wheelchair user but she also is very mobile without the wheelchair indoors.
Why we want to house sit
We'd love to maintain a homely environment for our kids whilst we're travelling which makes housesitting the perfect solution for us. We also want to give the kids an authentic experience of the countries we visit and a housesit will do this much better than some holiday rental or chain group hotel room.
We've completed 8 house sits in France, Belgium, Mauritius and Ireland (a total of 238 days of house sitting so far) where we looked after dogs, cats, chickens, fish, pools and gardens. We have positive reviews for all completed house sits ( & ).
Both Matt and Annél grew up in the countryside and are used to looking after a variety of animals. We are also keen gardeners and can look after your plants, lawn, swimming pool, etc.
