We are a happy, healthy and hard-working semi-retired professional couple, with lots of travel experience around the world. We have many happy clients in Mexico and the US. Now we are ready to branch out to other areas, open to all possibilities.
We own several properties, so we understand the value of a well-cared-for home. We are handy with repairs and love to garden! We have even cared for a delicate orchid greenhouse. We have owned cats, dogs, birds, horse, rat, and guinea pigs over the years, and one of us grew up on an Indiana farm with chickens and cows.
Our favorite house-sit gig was in a dusty Mexican village where we cared for 2 very sick dogs, a feral cat, and a complicated house. By the time we left 3 months later, the dogs were well, the house was good, and the cat was almost friendly! We still miss those dogs.
We are neither homeless nor penniless; we just love to travel and live like a local. When you return your house will be clean, the garden tidy, and the animals happy. And we will leave when you return (which we have heard does not always happen with some house-sitters).
We are glad to exchange references and "meet" via Skype.
Thank you for considering us!
Deborah and Jerry
