About Blake and Sandy

We are a responsible, professional High School Music Teacher / Entrepreneur couple. Blake is from the Blue Mountains, NSW & Sandy is originally from Gothenburg (Sweden). We feel very blessed so far to have looked after 15+ lovely houses and have met such wonderful people and their pets while house sitting since 2014. (Very happy to provide references and previous reviews from home owners)We are great in the garden, happy to mow, prune & water. Blake, originally from the middle of NSW, has had experience with animals of all kinds and Sandy has had her fair share too. Some of the animals we've cared for in the past have included dogs, cats, horses, cows, poultry, fish, guinea pigs, snakes & other reptiles, and much more. Blake is an an expert with fish and marine tanks. As you can see, we have a great deal of experience with animals of all kinds and are happy and confident in our ability to look after your pets if you have any!We have no problems with collecting mail, doing the required jobs around the house, keeping your property immaculate as well as being in regular contact with you, sending updates and photos of your garden and pets, or simply a happy snap or two of us relaxing on your back deck soaking up the rays, reading a book! We understand that peace of mind is essential for you to enjoy your time away.We are non smokers, non drinkers (*Sandy will enjoy a wine once in a blue moon) and would really appreciate if the house sit was in a peaceful location, preferably somewhere to enjoy natural surroundings such as the ocean/beach, bush, parks, or the river. We would love somewhere that we can enjoy getting outdoors and be in touch with nature. Blake absolutely loves his sport which he has been playing since he was knee high to a grasshopper and Sandy has danced for many years. We love bike riding, snorkelling - any kind of fitness really - and our creative pursuits.

Blake has a Bachelor of Music and Master of Teaching with his main instruments being piano and saxophone which he has been playing for a bit over 20yrs. Sandy has an Advanced Diploma in Tourism and loves to travel and see the world.

Blake returned to University in Perth a few years ago, to study a Bachelor of Science in Marine Science whilst house sitting various houses and doing some casual teaching on the side. He has since deferred and is, at times, working as a casual high school teacher or performing on cruise ships and Sandy is a Tour Consultant.

Blake has had a recent police clearance check completed through his school teaching and Sandy has got an Australian police check aswell as a Swedish one. We also have glowing character and house sit references so if needed, please contact us so we can forward the desired information to you.

Please don't hesitate to message us regarding any questions you may have.Thanks for taking a look at at our profile and we look forward to hearing from you!Regards,Blake and Sandy
