We are a retired married couple originally from the UK and now living in the USA. We hold dual nationality of the UK and USA and live in Florida. We have always enjoyed travelling and now that we are retired would like to do more. Together with our love of animals we find house sitting provides a means to fulfill these interests.
Apart from our academic skills, we have a lot of organizational and practical skills.We also love animals and would have no problem with looking after all varieties of pets.
In addition to the above, we have owned several large houses ourselves and have had over 25 previous experiences of house sitting. One example was in Menorca, Spain which was a situation where the owner of a hotel was away and the hotel was closed during the winter months.
We stayed in the owner's house which was a small farm, during the owner's winter break. This included all normal household duties, including feeding ducks, sheep and chickens and also caring for the owner's dog.
We also acted as caretakers of the hotel by visiting each day and checking all was secure and that all out of season functions were operating, such as all fridges and freezers, etc.
The other sits have been very varied and include looking after small & large homes and a variety of pets, dogs, cats, chickens, ducks and sheep.
In addition to the above, we also own and manage 4 rental properties in Florida and are used to dealing with many aspects of home ownership.
Finally, we were dog owners for 12 years and have also had several cats over the years.
