About Me


Nikki Ah Wong Hi there. My name is Nikki and I am the author of several books including "HouseSitting in Australia" and "A Middle-Aged Princess in Tramping Boots." For almost three years I have been a house sitter and I lived like a Princess on less than $200 a week. Currently I am living in Brisbane with my husband on a 2 acres close to the ocean. I still explore Australia on a motorbike and love to share my adventures in my books and on my blog.

About My Books


Nikki Ah Wong I spent almost three years without paying a single utility bill, rent or mortgage payment. My books show you how I lived on less than $200 a week and had the time of my life. There are stories of my housesitting adventures along with insights I learned from my life changing transformation from a depressed housewife to a sort of motorbike riding gypsy. Both books include information for would-be house sitters. Could you be a house sitter? Let me show you how easy it is.

I would love to hear from you. Send me an email here,
