We are an Australian couple in our early 50’s who recently were lucky enough to retire early. We visited Mexico in March 2018 and returned in July 2018 on a semi-permanent basis. We visited Merida, Progresso, Tulum, Mahahual, Oaxaca City, Puerto Escondido and Mexico City, to see were our first port of call would be. We decided on Puerto Escondido and we have been loving the lifestyle and people here.
Prior to our retirement we were in Australia working full time, Dean in private schools in IT and Jeanette is an ex Bank Manager, and more recently a Business Systems Trainer in the Healthcare industry. We have a personal reference from a business / personal associate who has known us for over 30 years and we have taken care of their family pets when required.
Jeanette and I have owned our own homes for over 25 years and will treat yours well. Our family home of 17 years was on the Gold Coast had a large inground pool, and we have renovated 5 homes in both Australia and New Zealand. Dean especially is a handy man and would definitely be able to arrange and supervise any works/repairs on your property.
We are generally home bodies of an evening, so we like to do some site seeing during the day occasionally, but would be home each evening for your pets.
We are now back in Australia and looking forward to welcoming our first grandchild into the work in June so keen to stick to S.E. QLD for a little while.
We look forward to speaking further with you and please let me know if you have further questions about us that we haven’t covered off.
We have two dogs who are now homed with our sister (Charlie a chocolate toy poodle and Missy a toy poodle cross) we miss them a lot and have lots of love to give your pets.
Missy is our lap dog so we are very used to giving lots of pats and having her sitting on us for hours at a time. Charlie is high energy ball chasing boy, both our dogs like to have walks and playtime everyday. So getting the opportunity of spending time playing with other pets is something we love.
We are relatively new to house sitting, however we have done several in Mexico including travel to Lake Chapala in August 2018 to house sit for a lady with 2 large dogs and have her as a reference available on request. In September 2018 we completed a 3 week house sit in Cuernavaca, caring for 3 dogs and 2 cats. Homeowners are happy to have people contact them for a reference also. Both of these recent sits have been through House Sit Mexico site. Both sits have been great and given us time with great pets and also given us the opportunity to see more of Mexico.
We took a break from housesits from October to March, as this is peak season in Mexico and we had visitors, so spent our time in Puerto Escondido.
We have now completed housesits over April and July 2019, in San Miguel de Allende for a month with a gorgeous long haired chihuahua and Lake Chapala for three weeks with two rescue dogs,a month in Chetumal with two rescue dogs and three cats along with looking after a pool and all animals.
Finally we have done 2 sits in Brisbane area for 1 month and another for 6 days looking after 4 chickens, 8 guinea pigs and a beautiful poodle cross. During March to June we will be in a 3 month sit while the owners travel Sth America.
We love furry friends or fur babies and have experience in house care.
We look forward to hearing from you.
