Nurse and pilot

36, Fixed wing pilot

35, Nurse

We are a couple, currently slowly travelling from Perth to Tasmania in our Toyota van. I am an Australian resident (Dutch nationality), have been living all over since 2011, a few years in Brisbane, and a bit in WA as well (Exmouth, Broome and Perth). Working as a pilot and currently travelling to Tassie to become a flight instructor. Linda has been in Australia a few times, worked as a Dive master in Asia, and has been a nurse in The Netherlands.

We have been house sitting in the past, love animals and do not smoke. Because we travel a lot we do not have the opportunity to have our own pets, so taking care of other people's pets is a great reason to be doing this.

We're currently only available for housesits in or close to Hobart, during the month of November and first weeks of December.

Meinte & Linda were absolutely amazing house sitters! They took great care of our highly energetic (sometimes crazy) Golden Retriever puppy! She was spoiled with many beach walks and cuddles. They kept in contact with us throughout our holiday providing us with pictures and updates (which was great knowing how happy Finley was with them). Our house was completely spotless when we returned - we would never have even known they were there! Highly recommend Meinte & Linda!!!

Meinte and Linda did a great job looking after our house, garden and cats. I even noticed Linda had got onto Spotify to play the cats some soothing cat music. Amazing!

Meinte and Linda were absolutely wonderful. They took my short house sit at short notice and were very accommodating with looking after Voodoo and the house while I was away. They made time to come and see us a couple of days before the house sit and they were very easy going, nothing was too much trouble. I came home to a very clean house and a very happy cat. I would happily recommend Meinte and Linda to anyone needing a house sit. Thank you so much :)

Meinte and Linda looked after our home and our cat Bubbles while we were in Indonesia for 10 days. We have no hesitation in recommending them as house and pet sitters. Bubbles is scared of people she doesn't know and they dealt with her wonderfully. They sent us daily updates and photos so our minds were at ease that she was well fed and cared for. Upon returning home our house was spotless... even our washing was done! Highly trustworthy, genuine and responsible couple. Highly recommended.

Linda and Meinte were great. They arrived exactly when they said they would, cared for my two dogs and sent photos and updates. They also left my home sparkling clean. I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone!

Meinte and Linda looked after our beloved dog Daphne and our home for 2 weeks. They took great care of our home and Daphne (who isn't the easiest dog to look after) and sent us regular updates on how she was going which was great for our piece of mind. Meinte and Linda were very easy to communicate with. We would welcome them back at any time.

No rating Meinte and Melissa house sat for me in Perth for 5 weeks, (Dec-Jan 2015/16). Before the sit began I spoke to Meinte and was left with a really good impression! While I was away they collected my mail, watered the plants and kept the house clean and tidy. The water heater was leaking gas while I was away and they solved this problem for me - which gave me great piece of mind. When I returned the house was so lovely and clean and my neighbours spoke very highly of them too! I would definitely ... MORE
