Hello! Thanks for reading my profile! I am an honest, reliable, trustworthy house sitter, who will maintain your home in a clean, caring, and responsible manner.
For the past 5 years, I have been entrusted with housesitting and running a BnB in Ontario, Canada during the winter months, before embarking on several months abroad housesitting and travelling in the summer. I think this illustrates the high level of confidence you can have in me as your house/pet sitter.
I purchased my first home over 45 years ago, and I truly understand how important a home is and all that it entails. Basic plumbing, electrical work, painting and regular maintenance are just a few of my assets. I'm a bit of a handy man, and do not like messes. Your home will be in good hands.
I am a non-smoker and my partying days are well behind me. I can provide a Police background check which was completed last year. I am a pet lover and like to walk daily. One of my house sits duties in Santa Fe, New Mexico, involved 3 cats (1 was diabetic and required shots twice daily) and an African Grey parrot!
I like to read, draw/paint and do some studying. I really enjoy meeting new people through experiences and travel! I find the opportunity to immerse myself in another city, country, and culture exciting. I am always looking to get away to a place where I can still work for my clients and still earn income while enjoying more down time.
House sitting enables me to settle down in one place for a period of time, rather than hotel jumping. It’s even better if I can make myself useful to someone.

Alex "This past winter was my first experience at securing a house sitter for a six month period. After interviewing several prospective candidates, I made the decision to go with Ken, and what a fortuitous decision that was.
I wouldn't hesitate for a moment in recommending Ken as a first class house sitter. One would be hard pressed to find anyone who is as knowledgeable, competent, trustworthy and excellent as Ken. I would certainly be only too happy to use his services again.
Steve "While I was in Europe and the Western USA, Ken took care of my property with the same care as I would have myself. He`s very reliable and trustworthy!"
Shiloa "Ken took excellent care of our house and our dog. He kept the house very clean and neat, and took care of the yard too. Ken communicated with us by the whole time we were away, and we feel that he is a reliable and trustworthy house-sitter."
Leslie – Strasbourg, France "Kenadian est le home-sitter parfait. On lui a confier notre appartement, notre chat et nos plantes durant trois semaines et nous sommes très satisfaits. En plus d'une belle rencontre humaine, ses attentions pour notre animal un peu capricieux et notre nid nous ont touché. Notre première expérience de home-sitter nous a enchanté grâce à lui! Partez l'esprit libre et revenez le coeur léger, dans un appartement comme vous l'avez laissé. Merci encore Kenadian, nous referons appel à toi :) "
Svenja & Ralph - Berlin Zehlendorf "Ken has been house-sitting for each summer since 2018 for 3-4 weeks each year. He is a really reliable and trustworthy person. He has looked after our cat Ludo with affection and left our house and garden in perfect condition. He was very polite to our neighbours and was responsive to our wishes. We look forward to welcoming Ken each year!"
Monique - Laussanne, 2020 "Ken was such a real pleasure to have care for my place, and my lovely Ms Nori wants to say thanks too! Ken was so chill and easy-going I had a super easy connection with him like we had known each other for forever =) Might be the great laid back Canadians meeting abroad attitude =) Ken was always easy to contact if needed and very helpful if I had any doubts or needed some help with the house and Ms Nori. Ms Nori really appreciate the easy going kind temperament and was so happy to sit on him and lick his hand and tell him when needed some petting, or just sit happily with you or on your work and computer. I'd be so so happy to have Ken for any other opportunity to house/cat sit for me and Ms Nori. Best of luck in your future house sits I would highly recommend Ken for any house stay."
