About this sitter

We are Carol and Mark from Australia. A practical, down to earth couple, we are looking for medium term house sits. We have lots of skills suited to maintaining property, gardens, small holdings. Love dogs and cats.

Why they want to house sit

We are now retired after a 35 year career in the mining industry. 15 years of that in Africa. We want to travel by staying in places for longer than the usual vacation time. We have lots of practical skills and loads of energy, and think house sitting would be a good way to use those attributes and allow us to travel.

Their experience

Previous assignments include rural Spain (through MindMyHouse), Italy, London, and for friends and family.

What can they bring to the assignment

Carol has renovated 5 properties over the last 8 years and has lots of skills in maintaining property. Mark has worked in the mining industry for 35yrs and can fix almost anything. Both of us are used to remote locations, but like the town and city as well. We are self reliant, problem solving people, who will look after your property as if it was our own.
