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.
We drove from Nova Scotia to British Columbia in August and September, 2017. We will eventually settle here, 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've also lived in Prince Rupert and the Okanagan Valley.
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 numerous chickens. 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 don't have a lot of house sitting experience but, as previous pet and home owners, understand exactly what you are looking for - we'd want the same.
Our experience includes the following:
- taking care of a house and property in Giron, Ecuador for six weeks
- house/pet sitting in several locations on Vancouver Island since October of 2017
We're looking forward to connecting with you and caring for your home and pets. You can rely on us!
