My husband and I are young active retirees living in Tampa Florida. We have a very spacious and comfortable condo in an area close to many restaurants and cultural venues. Our interests include dining out, theater and boating and best of all traveling. We love to explore new cities and enjoy the mountains and the country well. My husband is handy and we can take good care of your home. We both love pets and would gladly provide them with tender loving care in your absence. We are open to caring for farm animals and gardens as well. With this being said,we are willing to incur travel expenses to anywhere in the country to house sit but we do feel that as a compensation for our services we would expect comfortable and clean,accommodations equal to what one would expect in a vacation rental, with the ability to explore the area and enjoy ourselves in the process. Understanding of course the responsibility of caring for pets means not being able to venture out of the home for extended periods of time. More about us: We are Non Smoking, non drinking healthy living advocates. I am a part time fitness/yoga instructor. Keith is a year Railroad Retiree. In our recent many life ventures we have worked as Houseparents in a group home for teen boys. We have had to undergo strict background checks for this position.
