About Us

Pat is a realtor/real estate investor and had a residential rental property management company for other investors in Palm Beach County, Florida. She has over 15 years of experience in dealing with contractors, taking care of minor repairs and major renovation projects.  Pat has owned several vacation rental properties in Colorado and Key West, Florida, dealing with short term vacation travelers.

Julio, a native of Uruguay, worked for 16 years at the local high school as a translator, interpreter and guidance counselor for newly arrived immigrant students. He was also the soccer coach as well as the director of the summer soccer camps in town.

Living in the sub-tropical climate of South Florida, we have experience taking care of ever blooming gardens, as well as swimming pool maintenance.

We both grew up with family pets;  cats, dogs, birds, around the house. We also have had several pets in our home over the years.  Our beloved dog, Rocky, passed away recently.

Julio and Pat met in 1985 when Pat was solo-traveling around the world and Julio was working in Mallorca, Spain.  At the end of the summer season, Julio joined Pat on her journey and the rest is history. Now that their grown daughters are out of the house, it is time to sell everything and hit the open road in search of new adventures.

Why Housesitting

We consider ourselves "travelers" not tourists, and as such, firmly agree with St Augustine when he says that " the world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page".  When our girls were young, we found the wonderful experience of Home Exchanges, swapping our home for a homestay in a new destination.  Our home exchanges (over 50 exchanges in 15 years) gave us the opportunity to immerse our family in a new city, live like a local  and opening the door to understanding other people and their culture.

Our Experience

Even though we are new to housesitting, we have more than 15 years of experience with home exchanges all over the world and many of exchangers involved taking care of pets, gardens and  pools during our stays.  As home exchangers, we understand how important it is to trust your property and pets to the care of strangers.

We are a very active couple who enjoy hiking, bicycling and kayaking. We are fluent in English and Spanish, and can get by with our knowledge of Italian, French and Portuguese. We don't smoke, but enjoy a good glass of wine with dinner.
