About

We are a professional couple who retired in early 2015 and moved to an apartment on the Gold Coast in Queensland. We have a daughter and 3 grandchildren in the UK, and love to travel to see them and visit many other places we have not seen

Why we want to house sit

When we travel we try to stay in apartments rather than hotel rooms. House sitting is an even better option as we will appreciate being able to relax in a home environment. We have always had dogs and cats until moving into an apartment

Our experience

We have not had the opportunity to do much house sitting so far, although we did look after a friend's house and their 2 Golden Retrievers while they visited Canada for a couple of weeks, and thoroughly enjoyed it (so did the dogs I think)
