Christian House Sitters

Hi Home Owners,

Greetings! We are Jason and Geraldine Smith, a happily married, semi-retired Christian couple. After a few years break, we are excited about continuing our house sitting journey. We are honest, reliable and caring caretakers who will treat your home with the utmost respect and your pets with love and attention. Enthusiastic and experienced House Sitters, we began our journey in 2010, when we sold our home and business in Adelaide to enjoy an 'extended' holiday on the east coast of Australia, and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it.

We are health conscience non-smokers, who are passionate about health, nutrition and the environment. I (Jason) have travelled extensively, including living in the UK for 8 years where I met my wife. Geraldine has a unique cultural background of an Italian mother and Kenyan father, having grown up in Africa and still has family in both Italy and Kenya today. We are both Australian citizens. My background is a Retail Director having had a number of years’ experience owning and managing Optometry practices both in the UK and Australia. Geraldine has also had a number of years’ experience in the Optical industry as a Clinical Assistant and whilst in London Geraldine studied Nutritional Medicine.

During the past 10 years we have worked in a professional capacity alongside our continued studies, both working within the Optical industry. I held a position as senior Optician as well as Store Trainer for a large international Optical Company in Melbourne while completing my bachelor’s degree in Creative Arts (Photography). Today, both of us are immersed full-time in academia, pursuing Masters Degrees. I am currently studying a Master of Teaching (TESOL), alongside a Bachelor of Graphic Design. Geraldine is studying a Master of Commerce and is planning to embark on a Ph.D. upon the completion of her Masters degree.

As former property owners and landlords ourselves, we fully understand the significance of maintaining a home owners property to high standards. We approach every residence we live in with a homeowner's mindset, ensuring that each space is thoughtfully cared for, going beyond treating it like our own home. This is how we approach all house sits, understanding the significance of looking after another person's precious home and pets. With no children or pets, we offer a tranquil living environment, and a commitment to being considerate neighbours.

We would love the opportunity to look after your home and to keep it meticulously maintained, safe and secure. We have always taken great pride in caring not only for our own properties, but also for home owners' properties whilst house sitting. We are willing and flexible to do all the domestic tasks, gardening and pet care that you require. Both of us have grown up with animals, and during our house sitting adventures we've looked after the following animals: dogs, cats, sheep, horses, goats, ducks, chooks, geese, birds, rabbits, donkeys and fish.
