My husband and I are 51 and 52 years young and retired. We have been happily married for over 30 years and have raised two awesome children. 

In our lifetime, we have had the opportunity to own and personally renovate 3 homes, as well as our beautiful cottage that we built from the ground up with love, sweat and tears. Our cottage is "off grid" and we truly enjoy living spring to fall with nature.

Our family enjoyed a pet dog for 13 years and now we have 2 gorgeous grandpuppies who we absolutley love to babysit especially at our cottage where they can run free.

It would be an honour to take care of your home, your family pet and get to see a new piece of this huge, beautiful world. 

Thank you for considering us.

“ The BEST ever ”

Kerri and Chad are two of the most decent, modest, kind and honest people I have ever met. They are interested in everything, have a positive attitude, and most importantly, treated our dogs so well I think the dogs cried when they left.  If you ever need someone  to look after your place and they contact you - sign them up as fast as you can.  These are people that I want to stay in touch and spend time with in the future. 

In the weeds:

The dogs had clearly been walked a lot.

The house was cleaner than when we left it.

Chad fixed our front door lock.

There was even some prepared food left in the fridge so we wouldn't have to cook after catching the red-eye home.

Any questions about these folks, feel free to reach out to me.

     Our housitters did a wonderful job taking care of things,while we were away in Asia. They were very good with our overgrown lapdog Julio,thank goodness they had a sense of humour. Kerri and Chad were very easy to communicate with,always leaving me feeling secure that everything was well taken care of,in our absence.The dog and horses were content while we were away,I would not hesitate to refer them to any home owners looking for reliable house and animal carers.
