Although we live in the best 55+ community in America (The Villages FL), and enjoy "the good life," we enjoy spending quality time in different areas, getting to know the people and culture.
Housesitting would be a great way to do just that.
We have served as property care takers in our area and in the northeast. We just completed 3 different house sits in the Northwest, and, will be glad to furnish their references.
We have also worked as seasonal help at a ski resort in Park City UT
We have excellent references, and, are willing to get a police check.
We also have if and when you would like to meet us via the Internet.
We are very flexible on location and duration and have experience caring for pets.
We had a Shepherd/Husky for 14 years, and, a Lhasa Apso for 15 years.
We have an inground pool and have lots of experience with all household operations.
Before retiring to Florida in '09, we lived in a lakeside home in rural Kentucky, 10 miles from the nearest store, for 14 years.
I was an avid organic gardener and my husband enjoyed his "toys" (actually, I did too!)...ATVs, a pontoon, jet skis, and fishing boat.
I am a retired cosmetologist although I do hair for those who are homebound and/or bedridden.
My husband was an electrician for 18 years, then, was self-employed as a General Contractor erecting steel buildings for 20 years.
Because he enjoys staying busy, he drives a 23 passenger tour bus for day trips part time.
I also line dance several times a week with a group in our community while my husband enjoys archery and golf.
With years of experience caring for a home, garden, and, animals, we would be ideal candidates to take care of your home and pets.
We would care for your home, pool, plants, garden and pets as if they were our own.
