We are a married couple from Ontario, Canada. We are very physically fit, active, and non-smoking, with no criminal record. I am a retired professional and my wife is a self-employed yoga instructor. We have owned many properties and understand the value of caring for a home. We have housesitting experience, in Canada and the USA.
We currently own our own home. We also have owned a small vacation property in the Caribbean, but now wish to see more of the world. I may be caring for your home alone, or with my wife, who has not yet fully retired. We have done a successful home exchange with a couple in Arizona. As well, we have done longer-term housesits in Ontario, New Mexico and New Orleans.
We would enjoy the opportunity to care for one or two domestic pets. We have owned a dog in the past for many years, and have had a cat for ten years. We took the dog on long walks everyday which was a pleasure for both of us. We still enjoy long daily walks. We have previously maintained homes we owned with a pool and large garden. We do light household duties, pool maintenance and gardening. We can provide references.
We are looking for a situation where a vehicle may not be required, if it is not supplied. So ideally, there would be public transit available. However, renting a car is always an option, so we would still consider a rural assignment. We also cycle a great deal, and would enjoy the chance to cycle in your area.
