Hello. We are Rose (New Zealand) and Victor (Australia) globally mobile citizens on their extended senior citizens gap year. From June 2022, we spent eleven months in the UK, Europe and Switzerland, then two months back in Canberra, Australia. We are currently in Canada for three months with house sits booked in Calgary, Kelowna and Edmonton. From there we will be spending three months in the USA, and to finish off this leg of our journey, we will be on Vancouver Island for the month of February 2024.
Victor is ex RAAF and a retired Public Servant and I am a retired Bookkeeper and a published author. We are an active married couple in our mid sixties. Non smokers. We are self reliant. independent, reliable, responsible, adaptable and easy going. We are both Covid-19 vaccinated with three boosters.
We have travelled and moved around Australia and overseas for many years with the RAAF, including postings to Malaysia and the Solomon Islands.
We are experienced house sitters who since 2011, have looked after dogs (large & small), cats and poultry in the UK, Switzerland, France, The Netherlands, Vancouver Island, Canada, Malta, USA, New Zealand and Australia.
Our personal travels have also taken us to the USA, Vanuatu, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden.
Our dogs have always been an integral part of our family, spending time with us inside and outside the house. We miss our beloved Collie Jess, who passed on April 2021 so now we look forward to showering our love and affection on the pets that come with the house sit.
We love the great outdoors, the peace and quiet of the countryside, as well as the hustle and bustle of city life. We walk every day, and like to spend time in the garden. We love to cook, and are always happy to curl up with a good book, watch a movie or sport on the telly.
We enjoy exploring new neighbourhoods and having coffee at the local cafe and watching the world go by. Our passion is travel and exploring new surroundings, so house sitting gives us the opportunity to feel like part of the community, and not just a tourist.
We do not charge for our house sitting services, and do not expect to pay a bond or utilities for short assignments (less than 6 weeks).
We are happy to supply further references. Victor has a current Police check as he has been a volunteer with our local RFS.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Best regards Rose & Victor
