We are Rick & Judi Peters. We have been married 30 years and raised two children. We are a non-smoking, dependable and drama-free couple! Rick is a retired Firefighter/Paramedic and Judi is a retired business owner/entrepreneur. We spend our summers in the mountains of New Hampshire and travel 8 months out of year, mostly in our Class B motorhome. Traveling with us is "Fifl", our friendly and well-behaved 8 pound Morkie.

Through the years, we have owned and remodeled 3 old houses, completing ALL of the work ourselves. We can do plumbing, electrical, flooring, roofing... all phases of construction! We even bought a backhoe, dug out under our house, and installed a FULL BASEMENT! Our friends kindly refer to us as "Mr. & Mrs. MacGyver".
Both of us are computer literate. We believe our personal integrity and our strong work ethics are our strongest attributes.

“ Rural Housesit ”

Sit Dates Aug-22-23 - Sep-5-23 Homeowner DewDropInn, Member Since Feb-26-24

Location Bedford Virginia United States

We live in rural Virginia on 22 acres and were fortunate to be able to have the RetiredHippies housesit for us on a recent trip.  The communication was great even with an original large time difference. They took good care of our property and our neglected flowers looked better on our return than when we left! They were even able to fix a couple of electrical issues we had.  We also have a challenging rescue dog that was not supposed to be a part of the original housesit but they opened their arms to our little misfit even after she snuck in a hurtful nip at their legs! Their little Fifl was perfect with our “grumpy old lady of a dog” playing with her when she wanted and respecting her boundaries when she didn’t.

Unfortunately, our trip had to be cut in half due to covid and they were gracious and understanding when we had to cancel our vacation and return home early.  We hope to use them again for future trips and highly recommend them.
