Reliable pet loving couple. Currently in Melbourne
30, PR Account Manager
31, Graphic Designer
We are Alan & Julia, an argentinian young couple who decided to leave the comfort of their lives in Argentina and start a life of adventures. After spending 10 months rambling around all Southeast Asia, we landed in Australia (where we are now) to spend a year working and traveling along the island.
We have been granted with a working holiday visa by the Australian government, so the plan is to spend the next year (until July 2019) working while we live the aussie life; and what a better way to experience this than housesitting: taking excellent care of local homes and pets, as if it were our own, in different neighborhoods/cities/states while the owners are away.
Plus, the lifestyle that a housesitting provide suits our needs and profiles: a quiet place (in comparison to hostel/share flats) where we can relax, have a good night sleep, some cooking to save money, and the possibility to enjoy the company of a furry friend!
Before our gap year, as a couple, we lived together in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for five years in two different rented apartments ( landlord reference available). Work-wise Alan worked 6 years in a major tech & retail company as a graphic designer (a job he can very well continue as freelancer during a housesitting), and Julia worked in a PR and Communications agency for some renowned companies.
We love watching tv series, building Legos and, of course, pets! We currently have pets in our family houses (Alan's family owns a breton, Fiona; and Julia's family lives with Kitu the cat). We really are a more "stay at home" couple; also, we are non-smokers.
We always had pets in our lives, so we know first hand the love and responsibility involved. And although we couldn't have pets in our apartments, as we used to work more than nine hours a day, during weekends we used to take care of our family dogs and cat (feed them, taking the dogs to the park, playing at home, etc.).
Now we have also acquired more experience and references looking after cats and dogs thank to Trusted HouseSitters (mostly) and Aussie HouseSitters. First in Bangkok, Thailand, now in different cities in Australia, and in the future who knows. But the the spirit and main objective will remain the same: we are committed to take care of your pet/s and home as if they were our own.
Do not hesitate in reaching out to us if you have any questions. We speak english and spanish.
Alan & Julia.
