We are a couple who have renovated our one hundred sixty year old home in Wisconsin. Household maintenance and upkeep are not new to us. We've owned and loved pets including dogs, cats, fish, and even a cow. We are non- smoking, enjoy a glass of wine or beer now and then, and love to garden. My husband is very fond of Cajun music to the point of building an accordion. Reading, cooking and walking keep me happy. It is more interesting to us to spend our time in one place and get to know it well rather than doing a tour. House-sitting is our idea of time will spent. We have been fortunate to spend four vacations in the same house in England. On the last house sit, I was in a French village and my spouse unfortunately could not make the trip. We look forward to hearing from prospective homeowners needing a reliable couple to care for their home while they are away.
