Our sit in Mount Martha was the only one we did during our stint in Australia that wasn’t for friends.
It was also ‘different’ for us because we met the homeowners, Rose and Cassie, in person at their home in Mount Martha before the sit. It was just after we arrived in Australia in February but our house sit for them wasn’t until April. We discussed the requirements of the sit and care for the animals and were given a set of house keys. This was the first, and only time, we saw Rose and Cassie as they were departing early in the morning on the day of our arrival. They were also returning home after we had left the property. We kept in regular contact and provided updates and photos during their 8-day break via WhatsApp. Continue reading

This is our 3rd visit to Chiang Mai, Thailand but our first house sit in this city looking after 2 cats Jack & Scooby. The home owners are ex-pats from Queensland and have made Thailand their new home and we were delighted when they asked us to care for their precious fur babies while they returned to Australia for 2 weeks.
Provence in France is a very beautiful area and we were excited about this house sitting location.
Our home owner collected us from Marseilles Airport, while his wife, Marolijn was at home cooking us a scrumptious meal. A delicious start to this house sitting assignment.
Their pet cats, Lola and Pedro, were not as excited to meet us, especially Pedro who ran away at the sight of us.
Here we are in the Andalusian region of Southern Spain for 3 weeks.
Olive trees stretch for miles and miles around. Our home owners, retired English couple, David & Sylvia tell us there are 86 million trees in this region and is the highest producer of Olive Oil in Spain. In fact this area alone produces 75% of Spain’s olive oil.
This lovely renovated Spanish home with views overlooking, you guessed it, olive trees is our new home for the next 3 weeks.
This is Frank
You may remember Frank from one of last year’s posts.
We couldn’t resist returning to see Frank and his beautiful ‘mum’ Rose.
This lovely home nestled in the hills and amongst the olive and almond trees is so charming and peaceful, we love coming here.
It has begun!
After 6 months of preparing for our new full time lifestyle, our journey begins.
We didn’t complete everything we planned to do, you never do, I guess. But the moment had come to leave our home and make our way to the airport.
We’re back in Spain again after spending 3 months house sitting in the UK and France.
We are an hours or so drive from Barcelona staying in a small town 5kms from Sant Feliu de Guixols in the Costa Brava region. This area of Spain is gorgeous, we are close to beautiful ‘blue flag’ beaches and there are an abundance of walking and cycling trails literally at our door step.
