My name is Marie
I'm a healthy, strong, and responsible single woman. I am energetic and young at heart. Dogs and cats have always been part of my life.
Your home is special and unique. It must be cared for in the way you want it to be...your things, routines, pets, and plants. I don't smoke or drink. I am reliable and tidy. I enjoy new countries with different ethnic cultures and languages.
My first house-sit was a 3-month assignment in the remote Brazil Highlands one of the poorest areas in Brazil. My responsibility was running a Sitio (Homestead) There were 6 dogs, 10 cats 3 parrots and mules I cared for as well as the property.
I know how to maintain a swimming pool and love taking care of plants and a garden.
I am not opposed to living in a remote area and have no preference for cities suburbs or a little village.
I speak French, German and English. I am very familiar with Europe. I am from the country of Luxembourg and still possess Luxembourg Nationality as well as Canadian nationality. However, I have been living in Canada for the last 30 years.
I am willing and open to housesitting in almost any country. I want to learn and experience what the country and its people have to offer.
I am a nomad at heart, can survive in most situations, and take on house-sits with an open mind.
I am not opposed to any other pets/animals you may have to be loved and carried for.
I am retired from a 25-year position with the Government here in Canada.
I would like to add some of what I have been doing over the last 12-plus years I have a house-sat 55 places and have been invited and have gone back to house-sit again for the same people. Some of the houses were luxurious and some the remote and serene. The house sittings have been all over Canada in the States, Europe and Central America.
I have done volunteer work on 7 different organic farms here in Canada over the last few years and learned about farming and farm animals.
I was in Uganda, Africa for 10 weeks in 2011 to volunteer in a village in a school in the rainforest a most rewarding life experience.
Although living in Canada I am open to pet care anywhere in the world.
I love the outdoors and am happiest being on a trail or hiking on a beach and with a dog even better.
