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!

“ Great Housesitters ”

Chris and Linda Kopp were house sitters for us from June 12 through August 8, 2020.  They were exceptional and we returned to a most wonderfully kept house, lawn, garden, cat and fish.  They did an exceptional job with everything, and we highly recommend them for your housesitting needs.

Linda did an outstanding job with my many indoor and outdoor plants, and our decorative outdoor water feature which has both plants and fish, and both Linda and Chris kept our cat very happy and well groomed. 

Chris did a great job keeping the main yard in perfect condition, and our 3 acre field with a small tree farm thriving, including maintaining and managing an rather complex irrigation system.

Overall, everything was well maintained, and our home was in exceptional condition, and in some cases, better when we returned than when we left. 

We can not recommend any house sitters that we have in our nearly 10 years of using Housecarers.com any more highly than Chris and Linda, and we are confident that they will do an outstanding job if you choose them for any upcoming needs that you may have. 

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time at 303-775-6520.

This Wanderlust couple did a great job for us. They spoiled my dog on their long walks, did a professional lawn and garden job and my house was very clean when we got back. That's all we asked for and they exceeded our expectations!
