Wandering McIntosh's

70, Retired Handy at many things

62, Retired Secondary Teacher

We are available with no bookings at the moment but have a couple in the wind so this may change.
We are a retired couple with our 27 year old daughter who has a disability, Naomi, travelling with us. Warwick has retired from doing lots of different jobs and is a great handyman still helping one of our sons in his business when we are in Shepparton. Chris is retired from being a Home Economics and Textiles teacher at Notre Dame Collage and is on a carers pension to look after Naomi. Warwick has always been a handyman around the house and vehicles and loves the challenge of repairing/rebuilding things, Chris loves a potter in the garden - one of our regrets when packing everything into storage is all her plants collected over 40 years plus were sold or given away.
We have an English Staffy dog called Turbo who travels with us as a companion dog for Naomi encouraging her to exercise. We have travelled to the Northern Territory in July 5 times in the last 6 years. At the moment we are getting Naomi into the NDIS, once this is finalised she will be living in a supported care accommodation home.
Chris makes clothing and handcrafts to sell at markets from recycled doileys, vintage chenille and loves knitting while travelling. We travel in a Mercedes Sprinter that I have converted from a 15 seater bus to a campervan, we all sleep in it when travelling or Naomi uses a tent when staying in caravan parks to have her own space when we don't have a house sit.
Turbo is happy while being around people and adapts to being around other dogs with us around, we have completed housesits involving 2 terriers - 2 Huskies - 1 Lab - 3 dogs (sausage dogs) - 2 horses and 2 cats - 2 dogs and 4 hens and rooster and recently about 50 cattle, 6 horses and 2 dog along with a cat 30 minutes from Shepparton.
We have packed our household into a large storage shed in Shepparton so that we can travel and house sit permanently, Shepparton will always be a stopping point as we have 5 sons living there and the growing grand kids. But we are adaptable and will consider any house/pet sits anywhere in Australia.
Phone references our possible as most of our housesits have been from word of mouth.

Warwick and family were a delight to deal with, especially since it was our first time leaving the dog and house with House sitters. The house and garden were in great condition and the dog was calm and happy. We would be delighted to have them mind the house and dog again next time we get a chance to travel. Definitely highly recommended by us.
