I am a painter. My wife is a writer. We used to own a place with a pool and we put in a large garden and small vineyard so we know how to take care of any type of property.
We love animals and have two dogs and a cat that stay with grandma in the country when we go anywhere. We live in the city so it's a vacation for our pups getting to play outside all day and grandma gives them too many treats and lets them sleep with her.
We've house/pet sat for my sister on Kaua'i taking care of a dog, six cats, a bunch of chickens, and her plants.
We are non-smokers and respect other's property. We are very flexible.
June 3, 2016 Update: We are sad to say that 3 weeks ago we had to make the hard decision to have Zeb put to sleep. It was done in our home. He went peacefully with his head in a bowl of food. He was 17 years old. We miss him.
