Al (38 years old) and Jen (36) are health conscious vegans and transformational coaches. Al is a musician and Jen is a TV editor. We're from the Northeast and met in NYC 4 years ago. We love traveling to exciting new cities and spending time in nature. We're looking for a happy home for (at least) several weeks at a time (with or without pets) to care for.
Al works remotely on his computer a few hours a day and Jen does contract work on both coasts, so we are able to travel a lot. Housesitting provides us the extra time that we desire to cook, exercise, do yoga, meditate, hike, play music and work on our creative projects together. And we get to travel to new places and meet new friends and animals.
Al is a Super Host on , with over 300 positive reviews. For the last 3 years, he has been the caretaker of several apartments in New York City. Earlier this year, Al and Jen were the caretakers of a farm in Upstate New York where we prepared cottages and treehouses for guests, cared for goats, chickens and the farm's dog. Jen has had experience house, cat and dog sitting and also volunteering on organic farms (Permaculture Design Certified) so your plants will be well cared for as well.
In March, we set off on a cross country journey, housesitting our way across America. We dogsat and took care of an off the grid Earthship in the Rocky Mountains, catsit in Salt Lake City and Oakland, sat for amazing dogs in Laguna Beach and Santa Cruz and are currently cat sitting in Los Angeles.
We love animals and we will spend a lot of time with yours. Jen loves long walks and will run a few miles with your dog if you'd like. We are very conscientious of people's space, privacy, and we are clean. Al will concoct non-toxic cleaning products for you, if you like. We can also cook homemade dog food (not vegan!) We love to cuddle with dogs and cats, keep them well groomed, exercised and happy.
