Aimée and Donny are experienced worldwide house and pet sitters.
Aimée grew up on Guam, and her parents instilled in her a lifelong love of travel. She’s been fortunate to travel all over the world. Aimée has served on the faculties of several universities as a Professor of Acting and Directing for the Theater, and has worked for twenty years as a theater artist in Seattle. Aimée also enjoys teaching yoga in the studio, and as a private instructor. She is certified in TESOL, and has taught English abroad.
Donny is a handyman and photographer. He grew up in New York City, and moved to Seattle as a teenager. Donny served in the US Navy on submarines. Donny has worked in residential and facilities maintenance for 25 years. He has extensive and invaluable experience with light construction, painting, lawn maintenance, plumbing, electrical, drywall, and masonry. He’s a Jack of all Trades.
We are dependable, and quick learners. Donny enjoys working with properties ranging from rustic and off-the-grid to luxurious estates. Aimée misses having a garden, and will save yours from turning to seed. We share a wide variety of skill sets that make us an excellent combination!
We honor our contracts, both in written and handshake formats. We are non-smokers and don’t use recreational or pharmaceutical drugs. In terms of your home, we will treat it with care and respect. Above all, we are honest, and openly communicative.
Why Do We Do This?
We are adventurous, and seeing the world is our passion. House and petsitting keeps us out of the hotels and hostels and into authentic connections with communities all over the world. We are lifelong animal lovers, and understand how stressful a separation can be for both an animal, and their human. We've had fur families of our own and we've used petsitters, too. We enjoy forming bonds with animals as we travel. Pet and housesitting is a natural fit.
We are definitely not new to pet and housesitting! We've been working via house and pet sitting sites for years, and at this point we are also finding positions through word of mouth! Most recently, our adventures have taken us to Panama, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Los Angeles, Seattle, Thailand and Vietnam.
We have an extensive list of references and we're happy to share them with you.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to us!
