Beth and James are an active, recently retired couple. We both spent most of our adult working years in various public school systems in Iowa and New Mexico. We’re very interested in visiting new areas while providing you with peace of mind. Early in our married life we were on-site managers of a 14-unit apartment complex. While we are new to housesitting, we have been home owners for more than 30 years, and have always tended our home, yard/garden and basic home maintenance projects on our own. 

We’re non-smokers, and we lead a simple life with family at the center. We love being in nature, taking walks, and simply hanging out. We have experience caring for both cats and dogs, and would shower your pets with what they need, be it attention, cuddles, exercise or serenity. Our perfect vacation is to spend time in an area, experiencing the local culture and what the area has to offer. 

We’re flexible on location and duration. Your pets and home will be in good hands, allowing you to be out of town without worry.

“ You Will Have Peace Of Mind ”

You can't go wrong with Beth and James! From the first moment we met, they felt like friends that you have known for a while. They have warm personalities and are intentional. Our dog Molly, quickly got comfortable around James and Beth. She is usually super cautious, but it was apparent, she was going to have a great time with them. It was wonderful to have peace of mind that Molly was in good hands as well as our home. We received pictures and text updates. They took her to the dog park regulalry and out adventuring. She was in dog heaven! We came home to a very tidy and clean house. Beth and James take care of the home with so much respect and love. I wouldn't hesitate to have them come back for a future house it. If they are available, you should hands down say YES! 

“ Highly Recommended and Trusted ”

Beth and James did a superb job house sitting when I was away.  Upon arrival, they were notified that Olive, my cat, did not come home for the day (a first for her, in an area full of predators).  They spent hours helping search and calling for her, as well as responding to my texts and phone calls.  They cracked the bedroom window to hear Olive arriving back home at 5:30am in the morning! 

When they left, they let me know when they were leaving, how they left Olive, washed the sheets and made the bed.  They left the home in better condition than when they arrived!  They exceeded all expectations. A+.

“ Beth and James are so conscientious and capable! They looked after my cats and gardens and baby trees perfectly. ”

Beth and James did a wonderful job looking after everything and left me with no worries at all while I was traveling.  They loved up on my cats so much that it's clear the kitties are missing Beth and James now that we're back and they're gone!  B and J texted pics and cute updates of the cats every few days and I really appreciated that.

The actual bulk of the house sitting work in this case, though, was caring for my gardens and baby trees in the Texas summer heat.  I left a LOT of instructions for how to water the 20 young trees on the property (which itself takes most of a day) and how to water the many vegetable and perennial gardens I've planted.  B and J did all of it with no problems and the plants and trees looked great upon my return! 

B and J also expertly handled a sudden hazard at the beginning of their stay.  I had covered a large pop-up tent frame with a tarp to provide shade above the back patio door.  A violent Texas storm blew in and started lifting the whole frame up and tossing it across the yard, bending the legs in the process.  B and J managed to grab it before it hit the vegetable garden and remove the tarp while in the midst of the storm!  They even bent the legs back into alignment as much as possible afterwards.  When they updated me on what had happened, I actually felt good, because it was clear my home was in the hands of a couple of quick thinkers and problem solvers! 

B and J also left the house so clean and tidy it was hard to tell they had been here at all.  They washed sheets and remade beds and washed all their towels, which I SO much appreciate.  AND they left us some pizza and ice cream !  :)  Having Beth and James at our home was a fabulous experience all around and I very highly recommend them!
