A & B Team - Annette & Brendon

37, Bookkeeper

41, Programmer

Hi there,

Hubby and I are on a mission! We are doing an 'Around Australia' tour - and although not grey yet, we will be nomads from June 2019 onwards for the next 2 years, and practicing minimalism at the same time.

Can you help us with accommodation while we help you with house and pet sitting?

To map out our route for the next 24 months, it would ROUGHLY go as follows, although nothing is set in stone:

Jun-Oct 2019: NSW, ACT
Nov-Feb 2020: VIC
Mar 2020: TAS
Apr-Jun 2020: SA
Jul-Sep 2020: Southern WA
Oct-Dec 2020: Northern WA
Jan-Feb 2021: Darwin area
Mar-Jun 2021: Northern QLD
Jul-Sep 2021: Southern QLD

If you live in these areas, and are planning a trip during these periods, please let us know so that we can map our route and consider the possibilities. We would prefer engagements of about 3-8 weeks in length.

About us:

I am a bookkeeper who can work from anywhere as long as there's internet, and I like changes and breaks away from the every day life. I also love exploring new areas and would use any excuse (like housesitting) to see new areas, especially walking new areas (DOGS!)

Brendon is a software developer and he is more sedentary (CATS!) and would respect your property as he would his own.. We are both complete and utter bird lovers.

Sometimes my mum, Louise, may be joining us. She is a gardener and will keep your plants in tip-top state.

We both love animals and had pets growing up, but we live in a city unit, so no pets allowed. Believe me that we would care for yours as we would care for our own.

We are undertaking this trip to see more of the beautiful country, to decide where we want to buy a house, and to save up for said house. And why not? No kids means less restrictions, for sure, so we are making the most of it.

We are easygoing and responsible, and above all, we are flexible. Happy to provide more info if needed.

Many thanks to Annette & Brendan for accepting our request for a dog/house sit whilst we were away for 6 weeks. We arrived home to 2 very relaxed dogs who subsequently spent the remainder of the day by the front door waiting for Annette & Brendan to return. We in turn were able to relax during our time away knowing everything at home was in very good hands. We highly recommend Annette & Brendan & would love for them to mind our 2 fur kids again.

Happy you!

With a house sitter looking after your pets, house and garden - you can really relax. Happy days.
