What we have to give
-a webcam interview prior to the assignment, and a personalized detailed questionnaire upon arrival
-availability to spend as much time as you need with you (even days) going over your daily routines regarding your home, pets, and plants
-email/text/phone updates on your property and pets while you are away
-love and care of your beloved pets: feedings, walks (for dogs), playtime, and grooming.
-cleaning and organizing your home
-watering plants, and mowing your lawn
-experience as homeowners and as home and pet sitters

What you would be giving us
-a chance to spend time with pets. Since we travel so much, we are not able to have pets of our own.
-an opportunity to discover a whole new place, and learn about its people, its food, and its culture.
-You would be helping us earn income since we can rent our condo when we are not there.
About Mariela and Grant
Mariela was born in Argentina, but she has spent time in 25 countries, either traveling or living. She lived in the US, Mexico, Australia, and Costa Rica.
Grant was born in Canada, and has emigrated to the US in 2012.
We own three properties in Naples (Florida), a sailboat and a condo in Miami Beach (Florida), and two townhomes in Jay Peak (Vermont). We love to spend time between our properties and the exciting new places that we discover either house-swaping or house-sitting.
We are a non-smoking, clean, organized, and very responsible and reliable couple.
We have the freedom to travel as we have no pets nor children of our own.
About us as house-sitters
Between Grant and Mariela, we have performed over 17 house-sitting assignments. We have excellent references from very happy clients. If you cannot open them from our profile, we would be glad to send you our references via email. You are also welcome to run a background check on us.
