We are long time housesitters who take pride in who we are: extremely trustworthy, honest, reliable, responsible, private, quiet and energetic people where a clean, tidy and harmonious environment (for both us and your pets) is very important to us.
Being early-retired (Plumber and Software Trainer) we are both still very active, healthy, and non-smoking with one of us a Justice of the Peace.
Because quite simply, we just love it. We find our more joyful experiences of life’s many journeys are definitely coming from the pets and people we meet along the way. Housesitting allows us to enter a world of discovery into different communities where we meet new friends and travel to new places, play with and care for different pets, challenge ourselves from time to time, absorb life at a much slower pace, enjoy new foods, and travel more economically.
Our experiences and skills have become extremely varied as we began in 2004 and have come from many different platforms including word of mouth. We realise that everybody’s property is different and that home owners have different needs, so for us this makes life just that little bit more interesting and exciting, as we pursue what will give you peace of mind.
Being long time homeowners, both in town and on large acreage, and owning rental properties we have:
- A great respect for your property and belongings.
- A set of skills that are better than basic house maintenance.
- A good mindset for problem solving when unexpected events arise.
- Owned, loved, hugged, and cherished many pets.
Therefore we are experienced with:
- Caring for healthy or fragile dogs, cats, chickens, horses, geese, etc.
- Responsibilities from small city apartments to large properties.
- Living from a city to remote country towns
- Living with heat, humidity, torrential rain, wild winds, cold, etc.
- Mowing, ride-on mowing, hedging, trimming, slashing, farm equipment.
- Maintaining plants and gardens.
To help calm your fears we bring with us better than average skills that come from caring for so many different types of pets plus we have had a lifetime of owning, renovating, renting out and repairing many homes and have also owned and operated small businesses in both our professions. We are early to bed and early to rise, and love our daily walks especially to new places with new pets, being aware of our senses while we watch a new sunrise or sunset, embrace the smells of different foods, enjoy tinkering at some odd job around the house, and are really enjoying the ability to be able to do the things we do love, hence we are calm.
We are friendly, adventurous and active with a great willingness to:
- Travel anywhere in the world
- Learn new cultures and languages
- Walk and play with different pets in new places
You, your family and neighbours will find that our morals, work ethic and personality traits make us:
- very honest and trustworthy
- very reliable and organised
- very flexible and adaptable
We have good communication skills, will follow your instructions well, and will maintain contact with you while you are away so you can say hi to your pets and know all is well with your home.
Homeowners like yourselves who offer their precious pets and private homes to us for a short time never ceases to amaze us. It is a bonus that we are so heartily welcomed and trusted within the homes and lives of so many fine people to do what comes so natural to us - caring for and loving pets.
