68, 3rd Life

I am a 68yo single gentleman. I continue to do my best in the role of House sitter, minder & carer as expected & desired by the owner(s).
I started in Melbourne in December'19/January'20 with 2 sits of 3 weeks. My next sit was to be for 5 months in Buninyong however Covid-19 intervened and I locked down in Airbnbs. With more opportunities in NSW, I started House sitting in Coffs Harbour area from 3 June 2020. Late July and I Farm sat near Armidale, for the local Vet before I returned to House sitting in Coffs Harbour.
The last time I was available to House sit was during 2010 to 2014. Through Aussiehousesitters we (then married) sat+minded in 3 states (Vic, Qld and Tas) from small homes with 1 pet to 5 to 20 acre properties with a range of farm animals.
In 2021, I completed 7 House sits (up to September), 6 in Melbourne and 1, a farm, in Bendigo for April. The longest sit was in Berwick from May to September.
From September '21 to January this year I House sat at Clifton Springs near Geelong, for a family relocating interstate,
February & March I completed 3 sits in SA, first in Port Adelaide, then near Murray Bridge and finally near Clare.

Each occasion it was a pleasure to help+care for the owner(s). I look forward to your contact, John.

John was a real pleasure to have house sit our extended family. John was very thorough in looking after all the dogs, chooks, ducks and wild birds and left the place as he found it. Garden was well attended to. Nothing was a problem for him. the perfect house sitter. much appreciated. thanks Ev & Phil

Thank-you Evelyn & Phil, a wonderful experience to be part of your extended family. We are thriving on your care and kindness. in gratitude, joy & care, John
Thank you to John for taking great care of Bonnie and our house, Bonnie was very happy and looked great when we got home, the house was very clean and tidy. Would have no problems in recommending John or having him stay again.
KAREN (Lower Plenty VIC, Mar 2021 - 1 week)
John made it very easy to feel confident to leave our home for such a long period. He was great to communicate with and went above house sitting by showing potential renters around the place and collecting up things we had forgotten to be collected. When we returned home the garden was immaculate with new vegetables planted, our cat was healthy and content and the house was clean. I highly recommend John and would have had him stay longer if he wasn't needed else where.
JASON (Somerton NSW, Sep 2020 - 1 month 2 weeks)
John was a very capable housesitter who connected well with the animals. Being a mature man and home owner himself he had total respect for our home which was evident straight away. He is a very fit man who enjoys being active. He was clean, tidy and left the house immaculate. His handover was terrific and we would gladly have him again.
