We are Kate and Leo, a couple in our 60’s recently retired from teaching in Victoria, Australia. We are interested in house sitting and see this as a wonderful way of travelling and experiencing new locales. As part of travel we enjoy caring for and getting to know pets and other animals. As keen gardeners we will happily maintain plants and garden. We have lived in the country on acres and always looked after an assortment of animals, including loving pets, chickens and horses. We have successfully renovated 3 houses, with care and a passion for art and design. In the past we have enjoyed having house sitters when our animals and acres needed care. Leo is a furniture designer/maker and taught design at RMIT University in Melbourne. I taught Visual Arts at high school level and love keeping up with the art world.
We enjoy travel, meeting new people and experiencing new environments. Slow travel, learning about local customs whilst looking after pets appeals to us.
We have been house and pet sitters, looking after cats and dogs. Previously we have had 3 different sets of house and pet sitters for our own home. We have really appreciated their care and responsible treatment of our home and wish to provide a similar quality service to others. We are just beginning our house sitting journey and have thoroughly enjoyed our experiences so far.
We are a friendly, respectful couple, experienced world travellers who take pride in caring for homes and animals.
