The farm girl and nurse

63, Retired Registered nurse

65, Financial adviser

I'm a mature retired registered nurse.
I was raised on a farm with farm animals, eg. horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, donkeys too name but a few. We have always had domestic animals that we have loved and treasured.
I have looked after Elderly patients in their homes as families have gone on holiday, and have on a number of occasions looked after people's pets and homes for up to 6 months. I'm also a keen gardener.

We own a lovely lifestyle property on the Sunshine Coast of Australia so are well aware of what is required to maintain a property in peak condition and have the skills and inclination to do so.
Our professions require us to have police clearances and we are fit, easy going, non-smoking tee-totaler.

We can't speak highly enough of the wonderful job that Charmaine and Mike did for us while we were away. They were fabulous with our dogs, and left the house in better shape than they found it. Our dogs were obviously well-loved and happy. We highly recommend them to anyone wanting their pets well cared for and their home very well looked after and secure. They gave us great peace of mind while away. David and Victoria

Thanks for the glowing review David and Victoria. Have a fabulous week.
Could not have asked for better people to leave our dogs and home to. 6 weeks away and we given updates, photos and keep up to date. Nice clean home when we got back and a nice pie in the fridge. Highly recommend them

Thanks, guys, for the awesome service that you provided. The dogs were happy and well cared for and enjoyed their snuggles on the sofa!! Charmaine did an awesome job on the farm moving the stock. Thanks for taking and picking us up from the airport Mike, really appreciated. All in all a really lovely couple to have in your home, will call on Charmaine and Mike again.Thanks.
