We love adding some adventure into our lives by visiting and exploring new places and cultures. Our previous travels include an independent one-year around-the-world adventure on a bicycle. Traveling around-the-world on a tandem bicycle demonstrates our compatibility, our adventuresome spirit and our abilities to organize and problem solve!
Steve is a retired residential construction superintendent with an electrical background gained whilst serving in the U.S. Army. His work experience included avionics installation, small equipment repair, commercial water plant operator and apprentice boat builder. Steve is very handy around the house and the yard! We both trained as Master Gardeners through the U.S. Cooperative Extension Service. Sharlene is a retired Certified Public Accountant that primarily worked for the developers of active adult residential communities.
We own our own home. We also have owned several rental properties which we managed and maintained. We respect the value of property ... ours and others. We have house-sitting experience that dates back 20 years. We love animals. Steve has an uncanny knack of making friends with any and all cats!
We would want the homes that we care for to be non-smoking and clean. Wi-fi access and a quality mattress are also must haves!! Use or availability of a vehicle would be a plus. We love being outdoors and in nature, but we also would entertain a city experience.
We are not late-night partying people. We meditate, read and enjoy all warm water activities, when they are available.
