Nice to Meet You

Hi, we're Chris and Linda, and we're ready to take good care of your home, pets, and plants. We've been married 36 years, are non-smokers, and now that we're freshly retired from lifelong office jobs, are ready to continue our lifelong love of "slow" travel.

On our journeys, we prefer to stay in one location for the entire duration in order to get to know the surrounding area and experience and appreciate it like a local.

From large metropolitan cities to tiny hamlets, we find immense enjoyment in the exploration of the local culture and countryside.

Over the years we've learned we're content with the simple pleasures life has to offer: long walks, a good book, cooking fresh meals, and lingering over a cup of coffee. All these activities are made more enjoyable in the company of animals. 

Linda had quite a menagerie when growing up, including dogs, goats, hamsters, gerbils, birds, and a mischievous skunk. And while her parents drew the line at a horse, fortunately the next-door neighbor had three that she often took care of when the couple traveled.

Chris is a born caretaker. He's exceedingly patient, quite handy, and strongly believes in repairing things versus discarding. When not tinkering he can usually be found in the garden--tending both flowers and vegetable.

We keep our modest home neat with everything in its place and always maintain that habit in our travels whether at a campsite, cabin, or bed and breakfast. We were both raised with old-school values of respectfulness for others and their property and so look forward to tending to your home and loving your pets like our own. 

We're open to any part of the country but as we live in North Carolina, we'd like at least a two-week duration for locations on the West coast.

We look forward to hearing from you!
