“Michelee was an amazing house and pet sitter. She communicated very effectively and arrived as planned to go over the household. She bonded well with all of my animals and enjoyed taking my dog for several walks. She sent me several texts while I was gone with cute stories and pictures of my four legged babies. She went above and beyond when she took the most beautiful pictures of my animals (she is also an amazing photographer). I will be framing these photos as they were truly amazing. The house was immaculate when I arrived home. I would not hesitate to have Michelee housesit again. In fact, I would love to have her visit anytime while I'm home just to visit and catch up... she is truly that amazing of a person.” Suzette P., El Dorado Hills, CA
With 20 plus years of pet care and over 10 years of house sitting experience as well as four years living as an ex pat in lovely rural southern Spain, we have developed all the skills necessary to provide you with seamless, worry free care of your home and furry loved ones.
We honor the trust you place in us with attention to detail that exceeds your expectations.
Experienced, knowledgeable and loving animal caretakers, we have yet to meet a creature that doesn’t thoroughly charm us. We routinely keep in touch with past sits and feel each and every animal in our care has taken firm hold in our hearts and minds.
As homeowners on lovely Bainbridge Island we have ourselves engaged pet sitters on many occasions and can assist you to navigate the process and answer any questions you may have. We offer our homeowners the same level of care and beyond, that we expect in our own home.
My husband Tracy and I are passionate about each other, animals, travel, learning about other cultures and traditions and being responsible stewards of this beautiful planet we all share. We so enjoy immersing ourselves in a new place and have made lifelong friends around the globe enriching our lives beyond measure.
“From the first contact to the last they were a pleasure to work with and my wife and I never had a moment’s hesitation in hiring them to house/pet sit for us. The Scott’s were referred to us by a colleague who has had them care for her home and cat many times and I’m happy to say she was spot on in her recommendation.” Milton H, San Diego
House caring allows us to expand our travel horizons, spend time with an endless variety of animals and experience a new place as a local. Tracy and I are born caregivers which is why we both went into medical careers. Now approaching retirement, it is a pleasure to provide care in another way while offering a valuable service to others. It is a privilege to be entrusted with your most precious family pets as well as the place you call home. We never take that for granted and embrace our very fulfilling vocation while we enjoy an active and rewarding lifestyle. So go, have fun, and leave the rest to us!
As homeowners on acreage we have the practical experience of looking after a large property and understand that maintenance issues can crop up at any time unexpectedly. Recently completing a total remodel of our current home there isn’t much that we have not encountered and solved. I also have experience with household staff and personnel should that be a requirement.
Our animal experience is extensive, broad ranging and thorough. It includes caring for our own pets which have at various times included dogs, cats, a horse and a few chickens, as well as countless foster and rescue animals. Our passion for animal welfare then expanded into third world rescue missions including treatment and vaccinations of homeless stray populations and trap spay/neuter release programs. These experiences have given us the self-confidence and knowledge to deal with any situation that may arise.
We have moved throughout our marriage 12 times in addition to sitting for countless homeowners which we now count among our friends, leaving us well versed in all variations of living arrangements from small walk up apartments to manor houses, to rural pensions in charming country sides, to remote snowed in locations. Mountains, beaches, and everywhere in between we have called home. Flexibility is our mantra and traveling to the four corners of the globe we are fully prepared to embrace each and every new situation as it arrives. There are no problems, only solutions, and as meticulous, self-motivated, detail oriented lovers of life we feel we have truly found our calling as .
