Hi there,

We're a couple in our thirties. I (left) am a self-employed house cleaner (10 years) and am studying astrology. My husband (right) spends his time relaxing, developing some personal creative pursuits, and otherwise just goes with the flow. We are fans of the little luxuries in life: good food, good sunsets, and wide open skies.

We do our best to prioritize rest, relaxation, and maintaining a peaceful environment. A couple years ago we decided to give up our rental and try out van-life and we're still going! We live our life based on the belief that wealth is created in memories and experiences.

We started out housesitting and petsitting to get a break from vanlife from time to time, and are finding that we really enjoy getting to know new pets! They are a wonderful comfort. Currently we're available to housesit/petsit in the Vancouver area. We're happy to do video calls and/or meet in person before any potential arrangements.

As far as experience goes, we've both grown up with childhood pets - cats and dogs. Karissa has been housekeeping since enjoying it every year) and has been successfully operating her own housekeeping business since 2011, entrusted with keys and access codes, ensuring clean (and secure) homes, and Jamie has helped her out from time to time. In addition to growing up with cats and dogs, Jamie also has experience taking care of young puppies. We are happy to offer brushing and dog bathing too and can work with your pets' specific diets/commands/routines. We have been together since 2009 and have enjoyed looking after friends and family's homes and pets a number of times (mostly cats, but also dogs, reptiles, and smaller animals).

Thanks for reading and we look forward to getting in touch!

- K and J

Karissa and Jamie looked after our home and 2 cats over the Christmas holiday. They were so flexible with dates and especially when we weren’t sure if our flights to go home for Christmas would be cancelled, they offered to find another place to stay (which wasn’t necessary but we did appreciate them offering). Karissa was quick to respond to texts and kept us informed. It was nice to have a video interview with them in advance of the sit to show them around.

They kept our house tidy and left it cleaner than how we left it. They fed and cared for our two cats. They were very responsible, trustworthy, respectful, reliable, genuine, and professional and we would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a house sitter.
