Diane is a farm-girl and Alex is a city-boy. We met, married and live in British Columbia, Canada, and are now a 50-something, adventurous, non-smoking couple.

We have traveled both ways around the world together, managed a variety of hospitality and recreation businesses, owned and operated a popular guesthouse, and are traveling once again.

We were owned by three amazing cats over the past 20 years, and they trained us to care for them purrfectly. As responsible and caring homeowners, we would treat your home and pets as our own.

Why we want to house/pet sit

We are homebodies who love to travel. House-sitting offers the perfect opportunity to travel while staying at home.

As aspiring travel writers, we like to take time to explore an area, experience the culture and interact with locals. As homeowners, we miss the comfort of home while traveling and find comfort in looking after yours.

We know how much animals bring a home to life. Whether house cats or pet dogs, cows, pigs, hens or horses, we have always had animals as a part of our lives. There's nothing like living in a home with pets, and house sitting gives us the chance to enjoy the love and friendship of a furry friend, if only for a while!

Qualifications and Experience

Homeowners ourselves for decades, we are the DIY types who can tackle any and all jobs related to property renovation, repair and maintenance. We have experience and knowledge of landscaping, gardening, hot tub care, wood stoves, septic tanks, plumbing, electrical, carpentry...and so much more!

After several years of working in the hospitality industry, we bought a condo, rented it out, and went traveling. We decided in South Africa that we would open a guesthouse similar to the many "backpackers" in that country. We enjoyed the lifestyle of running a guesthouse which gave us a wealth of knowledge and experience in property management and guest experience.

We have done dozens of house and pet sits over several years, hopping between Canada, Mexico, Australia and Costa Rica. Our sits have ranged from four days to five months in length, and our pets have ranged from a 5lb cat to two 100lb Australian Bulldogs - including several animals who have required special care, medication and vet visits. We have cared for up to five pets during one sit and none during another.

As your house or pet sitters, you will have peace of mind knowing we will care for your home and pet(s) as if they were our own. We have traveled the world while others have looked after our home and pets, and we hope we can do the same for you.

Happy travels!
Diane and Alex
