We are retired bankers, aged 64 and 74, non- smokers, love pets and gardening and are experienced in home care and maintenance. We started house-sitting 10 years ago because we were thinking of moving to Vancouver Island and wanted to explore different parts of the Island. They were such good experiences we have extended our area to the whole of North America. We find it is a great way to visit different parts of the country, meet wonderful people and indulge our love of pets. References from previous house-sits are available on request.
