Looking for awesome house sitters? Look no further…
Hi! This post will no longer be updated, please follow the below links to our updated House-Sitting pages about how awesome we are and what we can do to help make your travels more relaxing…!
About Tanya and Andrew
We are aged in our early and late thirties and have taken a chance to change our lives for the better. We left our full time IT jobs in Australia for life on the long term road travelling through Asia (for the moment anyhow, there is more to the world than just Asia!).
We left Perth, Australia at the start of November, 2011 and have been travel blogging and house-sitting our way through Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Taiwan since then.
We are looking for house sitting positions that are longer than four weeks at a time. Preferably close to public transport or a vehicle, whether a motorbike or car that we can use. As we work on the web part time, internet is required. Don’t worry, we won’t use all of your monthly bandwith!
We are both animal people, Tanya prefers cats as they are easier to look after and generally enjoy her cuddles. Andrew prefers dogs as he likes to go out running with them. Birds and guinea pigs are also fine too!
Why do we want to house sit?
We are interested in house sitting as it will give us a chance to experience life in a place more thoroughly instead of constantly staying in hotels.
We find that when we do stay with people in apartments or houses or guest houses, the experience we get is highly enjoyable. Living like a local does.
Another reason why we want to house sit is to give back to the world. There is nothing worse than people wanting to go travelling but they are too scared and upset to leave their pets either with strangers at a pet sitting facility or with strangers at home or with family or friends that may or may not want to actually pet sit.
We are here to help!
Our experience with house sitting
We are half way through a house sitting gig in Taipei, Taiwan from the 21st July 2012 through to the 31st August 2012. We will be caring after two sugar gliders and an apartment for six weeks.
From November 2012, we have two house-sitting gigs in Perth, Western Australia which will take us though to the start of January 2013.
We have also owned a number of properties in Perth, Australia, so we know exactly how important a house / apartment is. There will be no broken stuff from us!
Pet wise: Tanya had a beautiful kitty cat for over fourteen years, soo she knows how to care for cats well. Andrew grew up with dogs most of his life so he also knows how to look after dogs.
What can we bring to the assignment?
We offer our thorough and helpful selves to look after your property, pets and mail if necessary.
