Present and Aware House Carers

About Sitter:

We are a married couple in our mid-fifties. We are both very tidy and practical people. We moved to AU 4 years ago and have recently relocated from QLD to TAS. We absolutely love Tasmania and decide to house-sit for awhile in order to get a feel for location and community and find the right place to settle, grow food and enjoy nature.
I have been teaching yoga for 26 years, and worked in Administration and Retail in the UK, USA, AU and NZ. I have done professional cleaning and care-taking for two eco resorts in the Glasshouse Mountains, QLD, AU and am naturally a neat-freak. We don't smoke and are home-bodies. I love reading, knitting and sewing.
Jonathan is an acupuncturist. He has carpentry experience and is very handy with machinery and equipment and has also worked on a sheep farm in WA. He loves to ski, trek in the bush and play guitar.
We both have extensive vegetable gardening experience in Juneau, Alaska, Massachusetts, USA and Kerikeri, NZ.
In Tasmania, so far we have cared for 2 dogs, 2 cats; 1 dog; 2 cats; 1 dog and we have grown rather fond of all our charges.
Presently, we are housesitting in South Hobart, looking after a large flower and vegetable garden, until the beginning of December.
