***Current Schedule:

We will doing sits in Costa Rica through June 9th and then heading to a sit in Panama through August 1st. After this time, we would be open to staying in the region for at least a couple of more months, but may head back to the US. Once back in the US we will remain there for at least a bit to handle a passport renewal. 

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 nomadic since 2011, primarily housesitting internationally since When in the US we are most interested in more rural locations but are open to all environments. When traveling internationally, we are equally open to urban and rural locations. 

We have done international assignments in Fiji, Bali, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Qatar, Thailand, Panama, Greece, Oman, Turkey, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Vietnam, South Korea 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 70 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.

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, birds, chickens, pigs, horses and rabbits. We know that homeowners are looking for people not only to attend to their pet's basic needs, but shower them with plenty of love and affection, and you can ensure that will be the case when entrusting their care to us. 

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 are happy to do 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.

“ Great Housesitters! ”

Kelli and Ryan were great house sitters. The house was cleaner than we left it. We got daily updates and photos of our cats. In addition, they managed to keep up our indoor cats summer routine of being carried out to their outdoor play pens for their daily  ‘game drives’ of watching the local wildlife safely.  They even did some minor house repairs while here. When they arrived our ‘scaredy cat’ was hiding quite a bit. By the time they left Kelli had won him over and he was sitting in her lap every night. I would definitely recommend them and use them again.
