Experienced and caring

We are a 'young-at-heart' retired couple, living on the Mid North Coast of NSW, after more than twelve years of working abroad. During that time, we enjoyed house-caring for friends, an official house swap with fellow Australians, and a very successful house-sit in England, caring for cats, a dog, chickens, quails, and a large garden.
Now settled back home in Aus, we have enjoyed many more house-sits: ranging from Sydney (Lilyfield, French's Forest, Woollhara, Forest Lodge), to Nambucca, Tintenbar, Ballina, Brisbane, Far North Queensland, Gold Coast, and Hattonvale. In 2016, we were fortunate to enjoy two overseas house-sits: one in Bath (UK), and one in France. Our pet 'expertise' continues to grow to include more cats, dogs, and chickens, plus the feeding of wild parrots, rosellas and kookaburras. (Dealing with snakes and cane toads is also on our CV!)
At home in coastal NSW, we have in the past maintained a large home, pool and garden. Now, we live in an apartment, and look forward to more travel within Australia, at a leisurely pace. We are non-smokers, house-proud, and would mind your home and pets as carefully as if they were our own. We are generally flexible with dates, including (sometimes) Christmas and New Year. With our own car, we can easily travel to house-sit anywhere in NSW, and further afield to Victoria or Qld.
It is very rewarding to have been asked back for repeat house-sits by previous home owners, who can vouch for our care of their home and pets, and our sincerity and trustworthiness. We will happily share with you all our references, and can continue contact via phone, email or skype.
If possible, we ask that you advertise your home, pets and requirements on this site, to establish whether we and you are a good fit for each other!
Looking forward to hearing from you when you next need house sitters. :)
