Who could be better to house sit than a retired Yacht Captain whose position dictated that everything was kept in perfect order? Lives depended upon it!
We take our job as pet and house sitters very seriously and so are available to those who would like reliable responsible security for their homes and pets.
We are a contented happy drug free, smoke free, alcohol free retired married couple willing to take care of your pets, farm animals,home(and your yacht)as we would our own while you are away. We are blue-water sailors, Barrie is a retired marine engineer and yacht Captain, and (Carole) a marine Navigator, designer and retired music teacher looking for new adventures ANYWHERE INCLUDING ALL of Europe, England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Available almost immediately and indefinitely, short or long term. We are empty nesters and are are happy to care for pets, farm animals, gardens and other things while you have a worry free time away. We both grew up with farming backgrounds so have intimate experience with all types of farm animals (including farrowing sows!) as well as pets. Barrie managed an equestrian centre in Victoria, BC, Canada, so knows horses well and is experienced in stable management. We have many years experience in managing properties and housesitting and pet sitting from periods of a few weeks to many months and all sizes of houses, from small cottages to large manor houses and beach houses and farms. We have been police checked as well. We are both doing some intensive research so require an internet connection.
We are willing to provide up-to-date local and international references from previous house sitting positions. Please ring or us. We look forward to giving you the confidence of a relaxed time while you are away.
