We are Carole Anne (68 - retired) and Clair Hochstetler (62 - working - hospice chaplain) a mature American couple who had seven years of continuous housesitting experience ( ) providing peace of mind and loving care for pets, gardens, and homes in over 40 different neighborhoods in the capital city of Australia. Clair was the manager of the Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care department of the main public hospital during those years in Canberra. He is now a hospice chaplain in Cincinnati, Ohio.
We moved in June 2015 back to America to be closer to granchildren living in Chicago and Cleveland and we are open to taking vacations while Housesitting because of our many excellent previous experiences.
We are both smoke-free and very tidy, with professional skills. We had a number of repeat assignments in Australia among a happy band of home and pet owners involving dogs, cats, birds, and fish. Your home will definitely be kept at least as clean as you are keeping it - most times even better! We can supply a numbe of references.
You can gain a lot more information about us and the details of what we offer by going to our own "Peace of Mind At Home" . Just Google that phrase with our names included - it will come up!
Just imagine - you go on holiday, not having a care in the world, free to enjoy your trip to its fullest extent, then come home to find your garden looking lovely, your pets relaxed and happy, and your home looking as neat and tidy as if the maid just came through. This is the experience we offer you: Peace of Mind At Home. We are happy to ring you to get better acquainted - or have a face-to-face video interview using Skype or FaceTime if you would find that preferable.
