Hello! I am an experienced housesitter with 17 years experience house/pet sitting. I am responsible and will care for your home, pets and plants as if they were my own. I have experience caring for pets that require medication including giving shots. I've had repeat customers in Rye, NH, Lexington, MA, Wellesley Hills, MA, Bolton, MA, Watertown, Ma, Healdsburg, CA, El Dorado Hills, CA, San Diego, CA, Sacramento, CA, Lake Tahoe, CA, and Cameron Park, CA. We've also housesat in Framingham, Ma, Austin, TX , Asheville, NC, Beaufort, NC, Orinda, CA, Charleston, SC, and Charlotte, NC. We recently completed a 2 week housesit for 3 dogs on a farm in Scotland. From there we went to London, England to care for another dog for a week.
My hubby retired 10 years ago from a management position with Intel Corp. and occasionally housesits with me. As homeowners we understand the importance of maintaining a home. We also have a cat and use this site to find house/pet sitters for our cat. We are both non-smokers, have excellent housesit & peronal references and excellent credit. We are prepared to pay our own expenses and utilize this site as an "exchange" only.
Excerpts from housesit references: "Janice is extremely responsible and easy to work with. I feel very confident placing our home and pets in her care and highly recommend her services to you." "Janice is more than capable to tackle the situations that arise in a housesit. We are very pleased with her judgement, reliability and consistency. We felt very good knowing that our animals (a golden retriever, english setter and our cat) were receiving a lot of love while we were away." "Upon our return, we found our house cleaner than when we had left! The outside plants had been taken care of despite the dry conditions. And of course our pets greeted us ‘warmly’, but it was abundantly clear they had been well looked after. I’m not sure if they would not have wanted Janice and Bill to stay longer. They didn’t seem anxious when we returned and were rather laid back about having us home again! I guess you can tell we were extremely pleased with the way our house and animals had been looked after in our absence and highly recommend Janice for either short or long stays.
I am available for or Facetime. I welcome the opportunity to discuss your housesitting needs with you.
Thank you for your consideration.
