WE ROAM SO YOU CAN!!
Happily retired couple looking for short or long term house sitting opportunities. Homeowners and animal lovers ourselves, everything will run smoothly while you’re on your own adventures. And rest assured, we are non-smokers and always have been.
In our former life, Charlie was a public grade school teacher - Irmela was an occupational therapist and we currently live in Ecuador. We know about loyalty, obligation, duty, and responsibility. And we’re really nice people to boot!
We are working on a family history book on Irmela's Namibian/South African roots for our future generation's understanding of their past and boy - it's a page turner!! It's another reason we want to be house sitters! We will use our time in your home to continue our book and catering to your pets every need!
In the past 8 years we have adopted 2 senior dogs and they were totally loved and cared for!! And we both have loved animals since we were kids. Irmela even had a pet meercat once in Africa!
We also fostered two cats for 9 months that we named, thanks to Dr. Suess, "Thing One and Thing Two!" We had them so long because we wanted to make sure they went to a really good home!!
We have family and friends in England and Germany whom we would love to visit between house sits.
Irmela speaks fluent German, Africaans, and English and understands Dutch. Charlie speaks passable German and some Spanish.
Charlie is an avid birdwatcher and photographer!! He always has his camera in hand ready to click!
Irmela is an avid reader and thoroughly enjoys cooking.
We love puttering around in our garden with an orientation towards vegetables and flowers that are attractive to both hummingbirds and honey bees.
Your trust in us would be the ultimate compliment and we take our responsibilities seriously. If you read our entire profile you will see included two criminal background checks from the F.B.I. showing us with a clean record. These were necessary in order to enter our present country. We’ll run your home while you’re away like a small business. Take a chance and know that your home will be just as you left it when you return! Thank you very much for considering us as stewarts of your home and your "loved ones!" Charlie & Irmela Monroe
