About this sitter

A pleasure to offer our services.

As, self-funded retirees, we are experienced house/ business sitters fit & active, with no health issues, covid vaccinated with boosters, and are nonsmokers.

We have worked in Australia, Asia, and Europe and are now in Portugal where we own our house in the Algarve. We have EU residency thus allowing us to apply for European  house/business sits and the right to enter and stay in the UK for up to 6 months 

We were the previous owners/managers of Pensao Bicuar Olhao Portugal from 2011 to 2017 (200 plus reviews refer to within this timeframe) and have as property owners engaged during that period 6 house/business sitters and many work aways. We understand an owner's expectations.

Completed ( Tasmania Australia) a 3-year house sitting/business assignment  on behalf of the Owners who lived in the UK
