Hello, we are Vlad & Inna - a professional couple living in NYC Tri-State area for over 40 years.

We  are a recently retired couple (an IT executive and a Private Piano teacher).  We have been together since kindergarten and pretty much act in unison. We have two wonderful kids who are out of the house, so we are empty nesters.  Our retirement has enabled us for unscheduled activities and allowed to consider extended travel possibilities via housesitting option. 

We also have been long-time homeowners, so we know how to take care of a house, as well as external grounds.  We are very handy and except for very large projects, do everything ourselves.  I am no stranger to extensive tools & fixing things and Inna can make the entire house shine.  We are very particular about keeping our housing neat & clean and will do no less for your place.  On numerous occasions where we have stayed (condos, apartments, houses), we left the place in a better shape than we have found it.

We have traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada, Caribbean, Europe as well as  Australia, East Asia & South America and very recently have cat/housesat in Netherlands.  Self-reliance, punctuality and dependability are our motto, as this is how we were brought up.  We love to experience different locations and cultures by immersing ourselves in local living and we usually by-pass standard tourist attractions. 

We are non-smokers and we tend to enjoy just our own company.  I am into photography, mountain biking, finances and reading.  Inna is a fantastic cook, wonderful piano player and an amazing knitter who creates true pieces of art.  You can often find us in the mountains, as we love nature, walking and hiking or checking out an unusual art gallery.  We are both drivers with excellent record and I can drive on both sides.  Our security records are as clean as a whistle. We are also fully (quadruple) vaccinated (re Covid protection).

If you have any additional questions, please reach out.  Looking forward to hearing from you!

It was our first time using housesitters for our cat while we were on holiday and i am a big fan. Vlad and Inna were so amazing that we wish to had them over every time :) The house and our garden looked great when we returned and our cat was happy and content. Lovely people that kept us up to date how things are going and took care of everything that was needed so we could enjoy our vacation with no worries. Inna even knitted super nice things for our kids and made them super happy when we returned. Thank you guys and sweet greetings from Bruce!

We are happy to recommend Vald and Inna as housesitters.  They took great care of our two cats while we were away for 2 weeks.  Both our cats are relatively recent adoptions, one had only moved in 2 months before the sitting period.  We came home to find them both happy and healthy and could even see an improvement in their relationship with each other.  Asides from the cats Vlad and Inna took good care of our home too, watering plants, tending the garden and general upkeep and cleaning.  They met and talked with several of our neighbours too which was great to hear.  They would be welcome back any time in the future.

“ Wonderful housesitter experience ”

Location Bangkok Thailand

Cadillac stayed in our old Thai house in Bangkok for 2.5 weeks in December 2022. It was our first time to engage with cat sitter like this and honestly we did not know what to expect. Cadillac made everything so easy. Communication was clear and prompt despite a 13 hour time difference. Expectation was set clearly before his arrival. He is very well organized, detail minded and thorough, and gave us more than enough confidence that our two cat queens would be under his great care

When we were traveling, communication remained excellent with regular updates as per our preference. The house was returned neat and tidy, and even better than before

I cannot say enough nice words for the whole experience. Cadillac was like an angel sent so my cat queens can continue to stay in our house instead of a tiny room in a cat hotel

We highly recommend Cadillac and warmly welcome him and his family again in future if they consider visiting Bangkok again

“ Wonderful Sitters for our House and Cat ”

Location Carlsbad California United States

Vlad and Inna are really delightful and caring.  They sat for us at our house in Carlsbad, CA recently.  The are a very charming couple who took great care with our house and cat Jasper.  They sent us photos and videos to show how our cat was doing and he was always doing well. Vlad made Jasper his buddy and lapcat.   The house was in great shape when we returned.

We couldn't have asked for more, but Vlad did much more.  He fixed a broken door in our garage and made several little tables more stable.  He replaced batteries in my car's key fobs and didn't let me pay for them.  He picked us up from the airport at midnight and even bought us turnovers for breakfast.

If you get a chance, do let Inna and Vlad sit for you.  They will do an excellent job for sure.

Regards,

Jerry & Lore

Vlad and Inna were excellent house sitters.  They left the place better than they found it, even fixing a number of small repairs that they noticed needed doing!  They sent weekly reports with photos.  No complaints at all.
