We have completely renovated and sold a loved waterfront home and garden on the Chesapeake Bay created and looked after entirely by us from which we enjoyed sailing our catamaran from our own dock. Now at 68 and 69 (married 47 years), we want some time to rethink our future regarding house size and location. We are a fit and healthy US/NZ couple adaptable to change having lived 6 years in Europe, 17 years in New Zealand and the balance in the US. Together we have traveled to many countries. We have two daughters, six grandchildren and have owned 9 houses in New Zealand and the US in the past. We know how to look after your house and property as well as pets. Now We love home and garden, are tidy and responsible, honest and fit. We always seek out a local church for community involvement whereever we go. We want you to feel confident that your property is being tended to by safe hands. In a recent 11 month assignment, the owner was on a Fulbright to Taiwan. We looked after her administrative affairs, paid bills from her checking account, made small household repairs and participated in local community music and drama. In addition, we introduced the owner to other professional folk in NZ to broaden her Fulbright experience. In previous assignments, we have maintained the yard/garden, minded cats and dogs, of which we're very fond. We're non smokers, have excellent references, available on request.
