I am now retired and very much enjoy exploring new locations around the world. I am 67 years young and in excellent health. I am a responsible non-smoker who would love to take care of your home and pets for you when your life requires you to be away.
For the past 6 years I have lived in Ajijic, Mexico. In the past I have house & pet sat in Ajijc, Merida, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico City, Guatemala, La Floresta, Ajijic, and several other homes around Lake Chapala. Previous years in New Mexico, Oregon and California.
I have been a homeowner for the past thirty-five years, and have owned over a dozen homes that I've lived in and renovated. I have also sold real estate in both Virginia and Maine.
I enjoy house cleaning, (sounds a little unusual but I really do) renovating old homes, painting, (would you like a bedroom repainted?) gardening and yard work. I love all animals but am not able to have them where I now live. I miss not having any pets in my life and therefore, I welcome the opportunity to pamper your pets with attention, take them for walks, and spoil them with affection.
I love to travel, and have visited and lived in many states and countries worldwide. I have studied foreign languages during home-stays in both Mexico and Guatemala, and I have volunteered to teach English in France, Nepal and Mexico and Bolivia.
I am neat, handy, mature, quiet and responsible, organized, trustworthy, creative and financially independent. My two daughters are now grown and I have two grandchildren who I visit regularly in the Greenville, SC area.
I am available to take excellent care of your home, plants, garden, and pets while you are away on vacation, or just need to be out of town. I will consider short and long term assignments, and have excellent references. I know how important your home and pets and plants are to you, and will treat yours as if they were my own.
Thank you for your consideration, and I wish you the best of luck in finding just the 'perfect' caretaker for YOU!
