Thoughtful House sitters
We are a young and active couple in our 60s. Both of us have recently retired and currently doing a lot of travel. We own our own house and have kept our home in good order over the years. We are both house proud. We are renting our own house out while we do some things in life away from home. Like all good house sitters and guests we will treat your house with care and respect. Lorraine is a very keen gardener and we are very happy to do any garden care that an owner would like.
We have house sat in a number of lovely houses with some wonderful pets on this site. Indeed one of the great rewards of house sitting is not only get to know the pets but also the family and the area where we sit.
We have also house sat for family and friends, including on farm and rural properties, over the years. We are very comfortable in rural or more isolated locations as well as urban areas and gave been lucky to sit in some wonderful spots
In our pre-retirement era, both of us started life as teachers (Lorraine as a home Economics teacher and Kendal as a high school counsellor) before moving into other careers, University administration and Human Resources /counselling respectively.
While we normally live in Australia we have family in the UK. While we are happy to house sit almost anywhere we are reliant on public transport, although we do have Australian driving licences. We are both non smokers
