About this sitter

Our names are Peter and Anita and we are a professional Melbourne couple who are looking for house sitting assignments throughout the world. Our business is flexible in nature which means we can work from almost anywhere in the world, and we are considering retirement. We are looking for assignments from 1 to 6 months that draw on our strengths in home / garden maintenance and pet care. We would be interested in both rural and city based assignments and would consider obtaining longer term visas for the right assignments. We currently do not have an EU passport, but as Australians we are able to stay in the Schenghen zone for 90 days.

Why they want to house sit

We currently have our own consulting business which enables us to work from almost anywhere in the world. We love travelling and meeting people but rather than simply go on holidays we are eager immerse ourselves in the culture and the people of an area by living there....something you never get to experience as a tourist. We see house sitting as an opportunity for us to meet new people and to learn. We are outdoor enthusiasts and passionate scuba divers and underwater and landscape photographers, so we love the idea of exploring new places. We would also would like to learn new languages, so an extended house sit is the perfect way we can do this and become immersed in different cultures. We currently speak English, some Spanish and Italian.

Their experience

We have our own beautiful home in Melbourne's inner city which is kept beautifully. We have also previously owned large country properties with extensive gardens. We often look after other people's pets, and can provide referees that can vouch for our character, our values, and our ability to undertake house sitting assignments.

What can they bring to the assignment

Peter is a Qualified Civil and Water Engineer who grew up on a large farm and orchard. Being an engineer Peter is very handy around the home and garden. Any maintenance work required on smaller or larger properties would be easily undertaken with skill and care.

Both of us have maintained large gardens of 1 - 5 acres and we are very familiar with garden duties, including maintaining lawn tennis courts, trimming hedges, planting, using ride on lawn mowers etc.

In addition, Anita has a strong work history in Tourism marketing and hospitality and currently consults to clients in this area. As such, we are qualified to maintain a house sit that requires the management of holiday accommodation including greeting and looking after guests.
