Hi, we are Rob and Sheila Goodfellow and we would love to housesit for you! Our home is in Fort Smith, Arkansas USA where we have lived since we married in 1990. Rob, age 66, retired in 2022 as vice-president of a small manufacturing company. Sheila, age 66, retired in 2021 after teaching high school French for 41 years. She has taken over a dozen groups of students to Europe with three different educational travel companies since 1983. Rob is also president of a non-profit performing arts center and a ruling elder at the First Presbyterian Church of Fort Smith. We are experienced travelers, fully vaccinated, responsible, reliable, neat & tidy.
We have one son, age 26, who lives nearby and tends to our 8-year-old golden retriever when we are traveling abroad.
We are in good health and enjoy riding e-bikes and walking our dog when we are not taking meticulous care of our house, garden, lawn, irrigation system, and swimming pool. Rob is a handyman and likes to play golf and cook and Sheila does not mind cleaning up dishes. Sheila was raised on a farm in Indiana and tended to livestock at a young age.
Our perfect house-sitting job would be an area either in a city or near a small village where we could walk or ride bicycles for shopping, dining, and coffee. We like to leave places in better shape than we find them, and we replace what we use.
