Hi there, we are Wendy and Carl, a newly retired, non smoking couple from just north of Brisbane in Australia. We have been housesitting now for about 3 years and would appreciate you giving us the opportunity to look after your home and animals whilst you enjoy some time away. We are, at the moment, back in Oz for a couple of months however we will be back in NZ in April 2020 and will be free to take on your "sit".
We are both extremely fit and healthy and enjoy the great outdoors. Carl trains for Triathlons and I play a lot of tennis & do a lot of long distance walking.I also have a genuine love of volunteering and try to give as much time as possible to this pursuit both here in Oz & back in NZ. I have many years experience in the horticultural industry & am a passionate gardener whilst Carl is pretty handy with most jobs around the house.
We try to spend at least 6 months every year in NZ as our one & only Grandchild is a Kiwi & we would like to be an inclusive part of his life as much as possible. Housesitting allows us to do this & we now also have many new friends (both human & furry) as a result of our adventures around NZ.
We are currently living in our own home in which we will be having folk stay during our absences so we are very aware of the anxiety involved in allowing strangers into your home.We expect our "tenants" to treat our home with respect and our priority is to do the same for you, showing our appreciation for the opportunity you have given us to stay in your home.
We no longer have any pets of our own but would very much welcome the opportunity to take care of yours if you think you would be comfortable leaving them with us. We have looked after many different breeds of dogs (the largest being 68kg), cats, chickens, fish & horses.Please be assured that we will do whatever it takes to keep your furry family as safe & as happy & as loved as we possibly can.
We have a very organised approach to housesitting to ensure that we meet all of your requirements so that you are able to enjoy your time away.We are happy to stay in contact by whatever means is convenient for us all and we will send you regular updates so you can feel at ease. We are also happy to Skype to make initial contact with you.
You will return to find your home and animals have been lovingly and respectfully looked after to a very high standard as this is how we would look after our own home.
Please give us the opportunity to tend "your place"....you have our assurance that you will be glad you did...we believe that the attached references are testament to the way we repay our homeownwers for the trust & faith they put in us,when allowing us into their homes...thankyou for taking the time to read this epistle.
Wendy & Carl
