Reliable world citizens
70, Retired teacher
72, Retired teacher
We are an energetic and active British couple who have been housesitting since 2014 in Europe, Latin America, Asia and New Zealand. We are both retired teachers with extensive international experience around the world and between us we speak several languages. We are reliable and self sufficient and would care for your house and pets as if they were our own. Peter is a knowledgeable and passionate gardener and can turn his hand to most basic maintenance jobs in the home. He loves dogs and has had many of his own. Rose is a real homemaker and will take every care to keep your home beautiful. She is a real cat lover and at one time she had 5 of her own, she just cannot resist them.
On a more personal level we both love classical music and Rose plays the piano, guitar and other instruments, We are avid readers, non smokers and have up to date police checks. We enjoy photography and Peter makes his own movies about places we've visited. Travel is our passion, and in the past 5 years we have enjoyed housesitting in the UK, New Zealand, France, Cyprus, Italy, Singapore, Spain, Costa Rica and Chile. We are down to earth people who don't need a great deal of luxury but value the more intangible things in life; family, friendships, beautiful surroundings, being with like-minded people and meeting new friends around the world.
We spent 6 months doing various housesits in the 'Land of the long white cloud' in 2015 and fell in love with the lifestyle, the people and the stunning scenery. We have been housesitting here again since the beginning of last December in Upper Hutt, Waikari and Carterton. We were booked to housesit in the Coromandel in April/May but this was cancelled due to the Covid 19 lockdown. Our visas have been extended until September 25th so we will be available until that date.
So if you need reliable, versatile, loving and conscientious people to care for your home, garden and pets you need look no further!! We have many references, both character and housesitting ones which you can find on our attachments and we are happy to speak to owners on Skype as necessary. We look forward to hearing from you!
