Randy is a retired chef who enjoys cooking and all things culinary! Sarah is a retired special education teacher. We are a healthy, active, non smoking couple who enjoy hiking, biking and kayaking.
We just completed a long term house sitting/caretaking position at a gorgeous villa on a one acre property on the small island of Antigua, West Indies. it was a dream position! We had wonderful experiences with guests from all over the world who stayed at the Villa and made many friends with local Antiguans.
We loved having our own home, garden and pets, however we couldn’t take them with us when we traveled so we opted to take loving care of other people’s homes, gardens and pets internationally. We love to explore new places and we feel better having pets around us.
Realizing that there needs to be a great fit for both parties we welcome questions and conversations. Meeting you prior to your departure would be the icing on the cake!
We spent the last four years at the Villa In Antigua, WI where we cared for the guests, maintained the Villa property by managing: the solar system, the 6 cisterns.. pumping water to maximize the rain water collection, gardens, a 30,000 gallon pool and staff; maid, gardener, handyman etc. Caring for two cats and fostering four rescue dogs was very rewarding, especially being able to find loving forever homes for all the dogs. In April we were told the villa was being sold, so it was time to move on.
Prior to this, we housesat for a month, caring for three dogs, two cats and two birds and were asked to return the second year.
We look forward to making friends, human and animal in the coming years!
