Karen & I are experienced housesitters offering dependable care for your home and garden, as well as love and attention for your animals. We've house sat in Canada, England, Wales, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, and the US. We have experience with dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, chickens, ducks, horses, newts, hermit crabs, and fish, and are willing to learn about other animals. We also have experience with swimming pool and hot tub maintenance.
Karen is a retired Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer and I retired as an office manager. We're trust-worthy, organized, excellent in emergencies, clean, quiet, non-smoking, and active. You can leave your home with complete trust that everything and everyone in our care will be well looked after.
We are avid gardeners, experienced travellers, and long-time pet owners. During the months that we're at home, we volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, The Red Cross, Special Olympics, a local seniors' home, and an art centre.
We enjoy hiking, biking, cooking, discovering new food and wine, and encountering new cultures and people.
The responsibility of caring for your home is something we take seriously. Karen and I keep a clean & secure home, give animals the exercise and affection they need, administer medications, and will provide regular updates while you are away.
We have clean criminal record checks and have references from several house sitting s. Feel free to ask us questions; we're here to provide you peace of mind.
