My husband, a retired university administrator with extensive computing background, and I are a non-smoking couple who own, care for, and enjoy our adobe house in Phoenix, but we also enjoy travel. House sitting gives us the opportunity to have longer stays in new or favorite places at reasonable cost
We are in excellent health and physical condition. We enjoy outdoor activities including gardening and hiking. Although we don't currently have pets because of our frequent travel, we have had numerous dogs, cats, and birds in the past and are very comfortable in taking care of animals.
We built our own adobe home in Phoenix, including making the adobe bricks, so we are knowledgeable about house construction and maintenance. We also have a swimming pool and do the routine tasks to keep the pool in proper condition.
