We are a married, pet-loving couple from Nova Scotia, Canada. I am 61 years old, and Robin is 60. We've been together for almost 40 years. After living in Ecuador for a year and a half, we are moving back to Canada.
We will be driving from Nova Scotia to Vancouver Island in August of this year. We will eventually settle on the Island, but want to explore first, living in various regions before deciding on a permanent location. We did live in Sooke and Victoria 30 years ago and loved it - especially the mild winter and early spring.
We have been homeowners for twenty-two years. I am capable of doing small electrical, plumbing, and other repairs and we can take care of all general house, garden, and yard maintenance - Robin loves flowers and gardening.
We're experienced pet owners and love animals. We've owned several cats and dogs, a horse, 2 goats, and we think chickens are just great. We love walking, hiking, camping - anything to do with the outdoors. We would absolutely take very good care of your pets and give them the exercise and attention they need.
We have little house sitting experience, but understand exactly what you are looking for - we'd want the same. We have taken care of only one house and property. The house is located in Giron, Ecuador, the owner from Colorado. He was very happy with us, and will supply you with a reference on request.
We're looking forward to connecting with you and caring for your home and pets. You can rely on us!
