Cecilia and Brad, married retired (University professor and GIS analyst), non-smoking couple from Arizona, own vehicle. We do not party, prefer reading, learning, watching great movies, and doing Sudoku. We are active, healthy, bilingual (English and Spanish). We are proficient in social media, and understand the need to stay communicated in today's world. We still own our home in Flagstaff, Arizona (gateway to the Grand Canyon). We have excellent references, and a "can-do" problem solving disposition. We have lived in the US, Mexico, France, Chile, and have had extended stays in Canada, French Polynesia, the Netherlands, Italy. We enjoy traveling and meeting people, and are pretty good cooks!
We love long hikes preferably with a dog on a leash, who will care for your pets in a loving, considerate way. We love to cuddle with cats, and they love us!
Be assured that we understand that your pets are your family too.
We can keep a home well maintained, and plants happy. We were hosts for 2 years in Flagstaff (our home of 20 years) with 100 + positive reviews from happy guests. We have been guests in North and South America always receiving 5 star reviews for being considerate, tidy and respectful of other's properties.
Cecilia speaks English, Spanish and French. Brad understands Spanish.
We are looking for a housesit either urban or rural for anywhere between 2 weeks and 6 months. Could even be longer than 6 months if everything falls into place. We can handle stairs well, enjoy rural life as well as city life. We own a vehicle in the US.
We had our beloved Pearl (rescued cat, see her picture in the listing) for 13 years, recently lost her to kidney failure and are still heartbroken. She was our soul mate. We have experience caring for Labradors, Havanese, Shar-peis. Prefer dogs under 60 pounds. We have lots of experience with cats: tuxedos, siamese, bengals, angoras, mixed breeds.
We love animals and believe strongly that they need attention, love and care not simply food and water. Contact us!
We are currently on a petsit in Chile, and will return to the States in about 2 weeks. We prefer not to have "last minute" requests so as to have time to organize our travel and movement from one location to another especially in an international setting.
