Immersion in a foreign culture or just having experiences away from home is the reason for our interest in house sitting opportunities.
I am a recently retired High School and College French and Spanish teacher,experienced with pet care, home maintenance and living abroad. I am interested in fitness,the Arts and in culture in general and have done house exchanges in Canada as well as rented apartments in Europe before joining House Carers. I have enjoyed many pets over the years,from Labradors to Siamese cats.
My husband is a retired engineer, a skilled handyman with fourty years experience of home ownership. He also loves the company of dogs. Both of us are quiet, flexible, non- smokers and have gardening and pet care experience.
In the last few years, we have successfully completed a 5-week housesit in Long Island New York, a 9 week housesit in Guatemala, a 8 week housesit in the UK and a three month housesit in Argentina. We can provide excellent references which will set you at ease as to the care we can take of your pets and/or your property. You can count on us to deal with emergencies, be creative when problems arise, take good care of your pets and treat your home with utmost respect.
