Annamarie & Karina May
I'm a professional of media background who has a very keen interest in travelling and working overseas in development projects. In my later years (50s), and now my daughter grown up working overseas, Im much freer to travel and visit places around Australia as well.
Houseminding gives me this opportunity. I try to live simply so I can fund my travels as much as I can, here and overseas. I also work online now or do plenty of freelance projects so I can have more opportunities to squeeze in the travelling whenever possible.
I love meeting people and get to know languages and culture from all over the world!
I also love domestic animals like cats and dogs and happy to take good care of them.
This is the first time I've formally registered as a house minder, although in the past, I've minded friends and family's homes whenever I could to help out.
I'm a non-smoker, like the beach, do regular yoga and still continue to pursue my love of media work through writing and coaching when I can online.
I'm happy to supply references when needed.
I'm a proud homeowner who has just rented my place out after renovating it so I can go away and do more places exploring. I truly understand the importance of taking good care of your home and also your pets in the home, as I've been a homeowner for 9 years now. I will be available for home minding and sitting initially for 4 months, then I may do more travels and come back again to do more of it. I also have police checks which are asked for now in all employment in NSW.
My daughter Karina May will also be joining me with the house sitting. She works as environmental development worker in Asia and also currently visiting Sydney. She is working nearby on short term work in Bondi.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
