About Us

We are Shelley and Joe, a writer-photographer creative team who married each other and our talents 15 years ago. We’ve since spent our lives pursuing appreciation of the arts, culture, travel, and personal well-being via healthy food and lifestyle. 

We’re responsible, neat and organized non-smokers who will leave your home the way you left it, or better! Having previously owned 10 houses between us (4 of those rental properties), we are experienced in the upkeep and maintenance a home requires.

Our lives have been blessed with a variety of cats and dogs, both mixed breed and pure-bred. Since our travel lifestyle doesn’t suit having an animal of our own, we especially enjoy the opportunity to love and care for other people’s pets.

The nature of our work makes it possible to live anywhere. Our flexible lifestyle enables us to meet your schedule and needs. Our primary focus will be care of your home, pets, and property while we get to know your part of the world a little better. We truly enjoy the win-win relationship between house sitters and homeowners.

Why we want to house sit

1. House sitting provides an opportunity to experience a city, town, or area as a “local,” rather than a “tourist.” Even short-term stays feel more like home when you have a residence to return to, rather than a hotel.

2. Having raised families and pets, we understand how difficult it is to leave a pet alone or at a kennel. We enjoy being able to give other families peace of mind, knowing their pets and/or home are being cared for during a vacation or work travel.

What we bring to the assignment

We are in excellent health, physically fit, and bring a lot of “know-how” in a variety of areas.

 Joe is as handy with a screwdriver and hammer as he is with a camera. He designed and built 2 photography studios from the ground up. Having owned, renovated, and maintained 7 residential properties, he learned quickly to do many repairs himself.

Shelley is the IT of the pair as well as household manager, making sure your pets are fed, given any meds if necessary, plants are watered, mail collected, and all routines/tasks are completed.

We both have been career-long freelancers, so we’ve learned to be adaptable, inventive, and accustomed to last-minute changes. We know how to walk into a new situation, settle down, and get to work quickly and efficiently.

Most importantly, we bring positive attitudes, respect for your home, and genuine caring and affection for your pets.
