Non-smoking, cheerful couple, teachers and photographers, want to see the world since we just retired. Trustworthy and dependable we promise to take care of your home and pets. We are in good health, love to hike and are ready to experience different parts of the world. Our own dog is a Fox Terrior, 14 years old, and gets at least two walks a day and sometimes five. He is well looked after by one of our sons when we are house sitting.

“ Helen and Greg were great house sitters ”

Helen and Greg were great house sitters for us during our two week vacation.

Even though our local weather was the hottest on record, (100+!) they keep my outdoor plants alive with probably daily watering. Luckily our basement is cool and allowed them a cool place they were able to go to with their old dog, Browser, for relief. A tree branch feel on the power line, (!) knocking out the electricity for part of a day. And with the help of our wonderful neighbors were able to get the power company out right away for the repair. Despite these unforeseen inconveniences  they not once complained, keep their cool,  but took it in stride and made the best of the situation. 
They were able to take full advantage of the area with several hikes, many bike rides on the Centennial Trail, sunsets at the lake, birdwatching, wildlife viewing and photography.
 Helen left some of her homemade spaghetti sauce in the freezer for us, it was a life saver while we recouped from jet lag! 
I would definitely have them house sit again, and wholeheartedly recommend them.
