We have used HouseCarers to find house sitters for our home & pets, so we know what it is like to have someone else in our home while we were away: we will be the house-sitters we would want for ourselves.  We have house-sat several times in California. Most recently in   we sat in British Columbia, Ireland, Spain, France, Denmark, and England. In 2016 we house sat in BC, Alberta, Spain, Ireland, England and France.

Several of our sits have been repeats.

After coming home to BC in the Spring of 2016 we decided to sell our house. We then spent time house-sitting around BC "test-driving" areas we might want to live: The Fraser Valley, the Okanagan, the Sunshine Coast, and Crescent Beach.

Happily we've gotten lovely references from all of them (various "sit" sites: refs and contacts avail upon request).

Our goal when we set out Oct 2015  was just to explore without agenda. Our hope was to do 33% as sits. Thus far we are right on target! 

We are tidy, responsible, self-reliant and experienced long-time home owners. We have renovated bathrooms & kitchens, done lots of DIY projects, love gardening, and have had dogs, cats, turtles, fish, birds, horses, rabbits as pets so we are comfortable with lots of critters! Thus far we have house sat homes with small dogs, large dogs, cats, horses, and chickens.

As experienced DIY'ers, we know how to deal with any surprises that might come up. You want peace of mind to enjoy your trip and of course we would alert you about anything significant, but small things will just get taken care.

Why are we doing this? Well, we decided to take a sabbatical from our careers to explore the world now that our three kids have graduated university, and made us "empty-nesters" as of July 2015.  Our first official HouseCarers house-sit  was the first weekend of August 2015 - we were asked to sit for them again.. Since then we've done six European sits - all arranged via and all have worked out wonderfully as well as another four BC sits.

We hope you will join us for a chat by   to get to know us better. You can also get to know us via  or   (just ask for our profile info) and read 12 years of Alba's reviews of our travels on Trip Advisor under username ASASG_7.

Both of us have owned & driven all kinds of vehicles, manual and automatic, sports cars, sedans, trucks, outboard motorboats, sailboats, and canoes. And we've driven in many countries (including Canada, the USA, the UK, Ireland, USA, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, Australia, Spain, Italy, France, Switzerland, Austria and Germany). If you have a vehicle available to us, we'll treat it with great care.

We'd love to take care of your home & pets so we can have the opportunity of experiencing your part of the world like a local. Looking forward to hearing from you - Mike & Alba
