We are a retired Canadian couple who love to travel. We have done quite a bit of travelling already but still look forward to more. 
Peter is originally from Vienna and together we have visited Austria, Italy, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, UK, Czech Republic, Portugal, Spain and New Zealand. The most recent 5 years included house/garden/dog/cat and fish sitting in Ontario, Canada and several in the US, namely Texas, Arizona, Florida and, most recently, 7 weeks on the Big Island in Hawai'i.
Alison is originally from England and has spent some time in New Zealand and Australia  as well. We have explored several Caribbean islands and much of the US and Canada.
For the past 20 years we have enjoyed hosting fellow travellers, newcomers to Canada, students and working holiday makers in our home in Oakville and 5 years ago we have been introduced to house sitting. We are looking forward to our next assignment to meet your needs.  We love cats and dogs, reading, music, home décor and are respectful of others' property.
We speak English and German but are not afraid to learn other languages. We are adventurous, adaptable and free spirited. We are flexible as to when and where to go, as well as duration of stay.  
In short, we are, and hope to be, at your service! Please contact us!
