Thank you, for taking a look at our profile and thinking about us, as your personal trusted house-sitters.
We are Sandra and Sören, a happy, calm and open minded couple.
Our jobs allow us to work remotely, so in 2016 we decided to travel the world and become full time house-sitter. This was the best decision we have ever made. We truly love the lifestyle we have chosen.
Of course you would like to know, if your animal family makes a match with us. We are happy to answer the most common questions for you.
*Are you experienced with animals?
Absolutely yes. We are both grew up with a little zoo of rescue animals, such as cats, dogs, horses, goats, pigs, hamsters, mice, birds etc.
We also have worked with problem dogs in our home animal shelter, making it easier for them to find a forever home.
Sandra learned to ride a horse, before she learned walking herself. She is into natural horsemanship and an absolutely experienced horse girl. When she was 24, she lived six months in Namibia, training young stallions for the farmers' families.
We have always been pet people and are able to handle many situations.
*Are you experienced house-sitters?
We started housesitting in 2015 over vacation and have housesat over 20 times around the world, since then. When we decided to travel full time in 2016, we also decided to housesit full time along the way. Housesitting allows us to connect our much needed daily routine, with our love of exploring new places and of course, of being with animals, which enriches our life every day. We have lived in our own property for many years and know what it means to run a household. We are absolutely reliable and trustworthy people, who know the importance of a well kept relationship of trust, between the home-owner and the home-sitter.
*Do you also care for our plants, garden and pool?
Of course we do. We enjoy being and working in the garden. Sandra loves caring for the plants, while Sören is mowing the lawn. We keep the pool clean, sweep leaves, fill up the birdhouse and do everything around the house and garden, that has to be done.
*Can you arrive one or two days earlier, to get used to our daily routine?
This is usually the way we handle it and the way most homeowners prefer it. Getting to know each other, gives the homeowner a better feeling during their own travels and for us it is very important to be introduced to everything and being able to ask questions, before the homeowners leave.
*How does your daily routine look like?
We work remotely, which means, that we will work from your home on our laptops, about 8 hours per day, 5 days a week. That for, a safe internet connection is needed. We work during the day and will be around the animals most of the time. One or two times a day, we go jogging or walking for two hours.
We do this, even if we don`t take care for a dog, as we need fresh air and movement ourselves. We always welcome dogs on our walks and of course adjust the walk to the dogs health condition and needs.
We eat green and healthy and try to avoid animal products of factory farming. We are no vegetarians. Sandra eats gluten and milk free. She also does`t drink alcohol at all.
We are no party people. The weekends we enjoy hiking, going to a movie or relaxing with a good book in the garden. If possible, Sandra goes horse riding.
*How often will you send us updates?
As photographers by heart, we love to take beautiful pictures and videos of your furry family. We usually update you every other day.
*Do you charge for housesitting?
No, we don`t. We believe housesitting is a give and take.
*Do you expect a car included to the housesit?
We usually do. As full time travelers and house-sitters, we are not able to rent or buy and sell a car, over and over again. So yes, we usually only accept housesits with a fully insured car included. We hold a full German driver's license and never had any claims with our insurance. If you or your insurance need documents of proof or IDs prior, we will be able to handle it out. Of course, we are absolutely careful drivers. We have driven any kind of cars on any side, around the world and call us absolutely experienced.
*Can we meet up, give you a call or with you?
If we are close by, we are happy to meet up with you. Otherwise, we can offer you a call or a chat with us.
*Where are you at the moment and are you available for us?
At the moment we are in beautiful New Zealand until September 2018.
We are fully booked until March 2018 and are looking for further housesits only then.
We are also interested in housesitting on Fiji, Samoa or Tonga, during our stay in New Zealand or afterwards.
