We have 30 five-star TrustedHousesit ratings from our previous pet-sitting adventures and are looking forward to more. As full-time house sitters, we are vaccinated and have the Pfizer booster. We also have US passports.
We’ve housesat throughout different periods of the pandemic and are therefore well-versed in preparation for housesits in these challenging times as well as being flexible given your possible travel constraints.
I transitioned in 2019 from being a tenured professor to a full-time remote worker as an academic editor, writer, and coach. Seva is a language professor who teaches university language courses online in Italian and Spanish (he also speaks French, Portuguese, Russian, Ukrainian, and some Turkish). He is also a painter.
Seva is the kind of person who makes 10 friends on the first day of arriving somewhere. I’m more introverted, which makes us a perfect match.
We’re tidy, resourceful, responsible, and, most of all, love pets.
Here's a review from Italy:
"Rose and Seva are dream housesitters! Our dog was well loved and well cared for plus our house was very clean upon our return. We had been nervous about leaving Ciro alone for the first time, which was compounded by the distance between Italy and Australia, but we felt very reassured after our first video call by Rose and Seva's calm and professional nature. They communicated frequently and were understanding of the time delay of our responses given the time differences. They also managed to keep all of our numerous plants alive despite their varied needs and the time of year. It's difficult to write anything that hasn't already been said about them, but if Rose and Seva apply to look after your pet, we can't recommend them more highly."
Here’s a review from the UK:
“We are so grateful to Rose & Seva for looking after our home, pets & garden so well whilst we were on holiday. We met them briefly before we left, and we were immediately reassured that everything was in safe hands. The house was immaculately clean and tidy on our return home & Rose had very kindly laundered the linen and towels. We had a significant amount of plants in the garden, including a big crop of tomatoes whilst we were away & Seva even took the time to make some tomato sauce for us rather than let them go to waste. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Rose & Seva as housesitters. Thank you both so very much.”
Here's another review from the UK:
"Rose and Seva are pro housesitters! We felt completely comfortable leaving our boisterous labrador with them. They arrived the night before we were leaving and Pablo was immediately besotted with both. They kept us updated every day sending pictures out and about with the boy and communication was clear and easy from the get-go. We arrived to a spotless house, clean laundry, and the basics (eggs, milk, fruit, etc). Our dog was clearly happy and healthy on return. We would completely recommend this lovely couple and would love to cross paths again in the future."
