Courteous and competent

34, Secondary School Teacher and Boarding House Master

30, University International Student Engagement Coordinator

Hi there!

Welcome to our profile - we are Alex and Michael, based in Armidale NSW. We have lived in Northern NSW for 3 years now after relocating from Sydney. I (Alex) work as an International Student Engagement Coordinator at the University of New England and also as a Pilates fitness instructor. Michael works as a Secondary School PE teacher and Boarding House Master at an independent school here in Armidale. We both love our jobs and take great pride in what we do.

Prior to this, Michael has worked extensively at both public and independent schools in Sydney and Perth and I was previously the Executive Assistant at Sydney Dance Company and philanthropy coordinator at West Australian Ballet in Perth.

A little bit about who we are as people though!
We are an active couple that enjoy the outdoors immensely, often going on small trips away for the weekend to explore the various landscapes of NSW and have gone on numerous longer trips across Australia and overseas. We have a love of coffee, design, food and animals. Both of us grew up with animals as part of the family; myself with a dog and a ginger cat, Michael with a German Shepherd.
We are non-smokers, limited-drinkers and are not the partying duo. We spend a large portion of our time with friends in our community and enjoy visiting family.

We have both had experience housesitting and petsitting for a number of friends and family over the years. We have thoroughly enjoyed these experiences, finding great joy in taking care of animals and playing with them as we no longer live permanently with our own. We are very tidy, caring and responsible people who understand the level of trust placed in people taking care of not only your home but also your much-loved pet/s. We love pet sitting and have had so much fun doing so in the past - it really is like a breath of fresh air being able to be around animals again, for both of us!

If you'd like to know more about us and whether we'd be a good fit for your pet and home, please get in touch. We'd love to hear from you!

Michael did a great job of looking after our house and dogs while we were visiting family. His communication was excellent, and he made a great effort to arrive in time to meet before we left, despite a 90 minute detour following a road closure. We arrived home to a clean and tidy home and 2 happy dogs - happy to recommend Michael for future housesits.

Michael and Alex took great care of our house and girls! They were very responsive when we needed updates, and left the place immaculate. I have no hesitation in recommending and having them sit again. Thanks again!

Alex and Michael were awesome, their communication was perfect and nothing was too much trouble. One of our dogs had a cone on his head and needed medication and eye ointment several times a day, they took such great care of him and showered both of the doggies with love and affection. The house was spotless when we came home. I hope Alex and Michael will sit for us again in the future.

We are happy to recommend Alex and Michael as reliable housesitters. After a week away we arrived home to a clean and tidy home and 2 happy dogs - exactly what we wanted.

Alex and Michael took very good care of our dog and home. I found them to be honest and kind people. I would recommend them for your next house sit.

Alex and Michael looked after our house and two (very active !) dogs over Easter this year. We couldn't have been happier - the house was spotless and the dogs very chilled (they even left us flowers!). We are delighted that they are returning to house sit again for us later in the year.
AMANDA (Sydney 2088 NSW, Apr 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
Michael and Alex house sat for us for two weeks over Christmas. They cared for our animals beautifully and were very easy to communicate with. They took care of our home and left it neat and tidy. We would highly recommend them for any sit in the future!
