JLTD - Master and Commander

I am Rach and as the title suggests I keep this ship smooth sailing. I organise and plan out all of our house sits for the year and usually do most (if not all) of the communications with homeowners.
Chris has plenty of talents but answering his phone and emails is not one of them.
I also run my own contract paraplanning business.
We feel so lucky everyday to be living this lifestyle, combining travel and animals, my two favourite things! Oh and I get to do it all with my hubby! Life is good..... we are Living the Dream.

JLTD House Sitting

House sitting is one of the best things we ever started doing! We love it some would say we are just living the dream!

As a married couple for nearly 6 years we have always enjoyed meeting people, animals of all varieties and traveling anywhere.

House sitting for us started when we did a house sit for some friends. We loved it and whilst having a beer or two we pondered the idea of house sitting full time. We acted almost instantly and well!!!! Didn’t that change everything!!!! 2 years on and we are JLTD, house sitting full time and giving everything we can to be the best house sitters we can for all of our home owners, animals and their properties.

You can find out more about the story here and find one of our many house sitting profiles here.

Frequently asked questions about our JLTD house sitting lifestyle

How long have you been house sitting?

We have been house sitting full time for 2 years. During which time we have perfected our craft and offer a second to none house sitting service.

Do you still have a place to live?

In short, NO! When we decided to start house sitting full time we sold most of our possessions. We only travel around Australia with what we can fit in our car. When overseas, well then we live lean and only take what we can carry with us.

Don’t you miss having your own place?

No, we find the lifestyle very normal to us. We consider ourselves  to be the modern day gypsies. We love our lifestyle and renting/owning a place to live would feel weird for us now.
