Hello, Carol and I are recently retired and have chosen not to retire but to see the world one place at a time. We chose to house sit as this provides us with the best opportunity to really get to know a local area. We started our new career in May 2014 in Costa Rica with a 3 month stay in Cabuya at the Gentle Earth Retreat. From here we were off to Hojancha for another 3 month stay. Since then we have sat in the USA ,Australia, New Zealand and England in over 18 different homes..Awesome experiences.. So why would you want us to care for your home pets or garden? Because we will care for them as if they were our own. Period. There are many qualified caretaker/house sitters out there and you will find none better. We have excellent references and qualifications. I have owned many business throughout my life and have skills you will not want to pass up. I can fix about anything and I am honest. My loving wife has qualities that outshine mine and is a sweet caring person. Together we make a unbeatable team.We do not smoke or drink or party. We have owned many homes as well as animals throughout our life and have lived in the Mountains of Colorado to the wilds of Alaska .We are ready for anything. Well thats about it for us. Thank you for looking..
