Hi! We're Kelli and Ryan, a married couple interested in house sitting in various areas of the world.
Originally from NJ we've been semi-nomadic since 2011, primarily housesitting internationally since We are also more open to domestic opportunities since Covid, and are particularly enjoy rural, quieter areas when sitting in the US. We often look for NJ sits for extended periods to spend time with friends and family.
We have done international assignments in Fiji, Bali, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Qatar, Thailand, Panama, Greece, Oman, Turkey and New Zealand.
We do not have a lot of reviews here, but I would be able to direct you to a site where we have over 50 verified ones.
We are very passionate about personal development. If we have to get up and live life everyday, makes sense to make the best of it! And our' journey' has allowed us to create many wonderful things, namely location-independent businesses that allow us to travel extensively. I am a life coach and Ryan helps people build online businesses.
Most of what we do online isn't time sensitive but I do have zoom calls with clients a few hours a week so generally reliable internet is important. If there is good service for internet data or a hot spot, to be used as a back up when necessary for the calls, it may be possible to consider assignments where there may be periodic issues with the connection.
Because the location-independent nature of our businesses allows us to travel for as long as we want, we really enjoy spending time in places for an extended period Because we are working while traveling, we like some stability and the comforts of 'home.'
Housesitting is a perfect way to travel in our preferred manner. We are kind of 'homebodies' but like changing up where home is every so often. We also really adore animals so assignments with pets are just perfect for us. Slow travel is definitely more our speed.
We have done sits in an eclectic mix of environments, from a luxury property in Bali where we managed full-time staff to a bare-bones house three miles into the Costa Rican jungle, with no electricity and an outhouse (yes as gross as you are imagining!).
Our lifestyle is low-key and clean. We are very committed to our health and well-being, so regular exercise, a healthy diet, yoga and meditation are woven into our everyday life. We don't drink any alcohol or smoke.
HUGE animal lovers and experienced in caring for cats, dogs and birds. We also have done sits with chickens, pigs and alpacas. When you entrust us with your beloved pets, know that they will not just be taken care of, but truly loved and showered with plenty of affection. Without a doubt, we are the ‘love animals more than people’ type.
Between spending a good deal of time at home to work, and not really going out in the evenings, your pets will never be alone for long. We really miss having pets and are happy to just hang around the house playing with them. Long walks for the dogs are never an issue--great way to get some exercise in!
We have no problem with gardening and other basic upkeep of the property. We have had a couple of assignments that required pretty extensive maintenance of the grounds, and Ryan is very skilled with a machete, and enjoys using it quite a bit!
We love a clean and orderly space, so when leaving your home in our care, you can be assured it will be kept in tip-top shape.
Housesitting is such a win-win for both parties and we are so glad for the opportunity to take care of so many wonderful animals, stay in so many lovely homes and visit so many interesting and beautiful locations.
