Responsible professional couple wants to care for your home, animals, and/or gardens as we did our own. We sold our executive home/hobby farm on 30 acres to free us to travel and to experience different neighborhoods and geographic areas.  Jhan, an engineer with excellent handyman/home maintenance skills and a commercial drivers’ license can handle routine matters or jump in if issues arise.  Colleen, an attorney turned writer and photographer will care for your home and furry family members with love and care (as will Jhan).

Visit the Cowles42 link above for additional house/pet-sitting reviews.  

We’re well-travelled, so are used to handling things as they come up in different environments. We’ve owned dogs, cats, horses, llamas, ferrets, birds, bearded dragons and more so are well-versed in animal care. Colleen grew up on a farm, and both of us come from small towns where caring for property and animals and appreciating and respecting neighbors is instilled. 

Seeking U.S. and international opportunities.  We're experienced with high-end home maintenance and care, (and also maintained a 10,000 sq. ft. office building that housed our software company).  We're open to remote locations (but do need internet or cell availability). Unique or urban settings or neighborhoods are also of interest. Healthy, non-smokers. COVID-safe. 

Check our pictures to see prior properties and animals. 

We’ll hope to speak with you soon and hope we can step in so you can fully relax while you're away.

“ Reliable Sitters ”

Sit Dates Apr-8-22 - Apr-18-22 Homeowner CoalsMom, Member Since Jun-6-21

Location Lake Charles Louisiana United States

We were fortunate to locate Colleen & Jhan through when we were planning a Pacific Coast trip. They communicated their interest to visit our area of the country and made it clear that they looked forward to caring for our home and our dog, Coal.

They made the transition easy by coming the day before we left so they could learn our routine. Before we left on our trip, Coal was already lapping up their love.

Every few days, they texted us pictures -- these contacts reassured us that all was well. Whatever came up, if anything, they dealt with it without bothering us.

When we returned home, it was obvious that Coal had been well cared for. Our plants had been watered and were flourishing, the yard was in great shape and the house was clean and neat.

In summary, Colleen & Jhan were perfect house sitters, and we recommend them to you without hesitation!
