I am a retiredbanker, non-smoker and pet lover. I started house-sitting 10 years ago because I was thinking of moving to Vancouver Island and wanted to explore different parts of the Island. They were such good experiences I have extended my area to the whole of North America. I find it is a great way to visit different parts of the country, meet wonderful people and indulge my love of pets. References from previous house-sits are available on request.
