Had lunch with Andre and Kadri from Estonia, who are 8 months into a several year trip to see the world. They are house sitting our home in Healesville and seemed as genuinely delighted to have the opportunity, as we were to have them look after our home.
After much research we used a site recommended by a friend; Aussie House Sitters. We had quite a number of replies. Andre and Kadri had been early responders and my favourites from the beginning so I was excited when references and application all checked out.
