Introduction Profile:

Thank you for taking the time to view our Profile.

In 2013, I retired after operating my own business for over thirty-five years. My wife worked as a stay-at-home Mom to raise our daughter and son. We now enjoy spending as much time as possible with our adult children and four grandbeauties. For the past number of years, we have also been extensively involved in doing volunteer work. Some of this includes doing humanitarian work in Africa and also working with a Humanitarian Relief Organization here in Canada. Laurie and I love to travel and love meeting new friends. We are both non-smokers and fitness enthusiasts. Please view our Photo Gallery and get to know us better. 

Laurie and I have been homeowners since we were married over forty years ago. While travelling, most of our accommodations have been in Vacation Rentals, Bed and Breakfasts and Guest Homes. We understand the responsibilities associated with living under someone else's roof and will apply our high standards to fulfill what is expected of us. With my background experience in property management, I am able to evaluate situations that may arise, and work to find a solution. Throughout our years of marriage, Laurie has taken great pride in meticulously maintaining the lawns and gardens (pool) of our homes. 

Both my wife and I are organized and committed to detail. We both have a strong work ethic and take pride in whatever responsibility we undertake. Laurie and I both grew up with a variety of pets (dogs, cats, rabbits etc.). When our children were young, our rescue dog Thunder, became part of our family. Her days of terrorizing the neighbourhood squirrels and rabbits came to an end in the fall of 2004 when she succumbed to age-related complications. Laurie and I are both morning people. Pets accustomed to early morning walks and runs will love the routine we provide.

Laurie and I are well travelled, experienced house/pet sitters. We are registered House Sitters on a variety of house sit sites. I hold an International Driver's Licence and have the top level Police Check available through the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). We have the financial resources to travel.  Available to FaceTime.

House/Pet Sit Reviews:

#1 - We could NOT have picked better home and pet sitters than Jon and Laurie! From the moment we first met them on FaceTime, we knew we had met like-minded people. We picked them up at the airport and that fact was supported as they are kind and open and respectful individuals. When we returned from our month vacation in Europe, we found our home and our little dog in perfect condition! Additionally, there was a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a loving letter of appreciation and food in the fridge. These two people are simply THE BEST and we have no hesitation in recommending them for any other home sitting or pet sitting assignment. Thank you Jon and Laurie, thank you. Barbi & Jim Graham - West Vancouver 

#2 - What a Blessing! We registered for a house/pet sit in January of this year. Jon and Laurie responded to our listing and they were in the area on vacation. We reviewed all of their Profile information and we invited them to our house to meet with us and our pets. We immediately knew that this was going to work for us. They are just great people. We could NOT have picked better home and pet sitters than Jon and Laurie! We communicated with them throughout 2023 and they arrived as planned in early November. We left for a two month trip to Italy. They communicated with us during our entire trip. When we returned from our vacation we found our home and our dog and bird well cared for. Additionally, there was a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and a home that was in better condition upon our return than when we left. These two people are simply THE BEST and we recommend them for any other home sitting or pet sitting assignment. We hope to be able to work with them again. Thank you Jon and Laurie.

#3 - Dear Jon & Laurie,                                                                                    We arrived home to a beautifully clean house – we cannot thank you enough. Stella looks amazingly healthy. My only regret is that I did not get to meet you before I left. Clive has not stopped telling me how much he enjoyed your company before he left. I am sitting here sipping the wonderful Pinot Grigio that you left in the fridge. I look forward to meeting you sometime in the future. Leyla Stewart – Oldsmar, Florida 


#1 - Jon and Laurie are a couple that any homeowner would be fortunate to have watch over their home and pets. They themselves keep an immaculate home and the surrounding yard is pristine! We are more than confident in recommending them. Don & MJ Mann.

#2 - We have known Jon and Laurie for many years now. We find them to be very reliable and trustworthy and have never had any issues or concerns when we have had them use our cottage property up north. They are a hig
