We are a responsible married couple, born in the early 80's and living in Berlin/Germany. We work as a primary school teacher and as an electrical engineer. Our hobbies are playing music (piano, bass, guitar), volunteering at our church, exploring nature by bike or canoe, reading, knitting, puzzles, meeting friends and family. We are quiet and don't bother our neighbours with loud parties or anything. We are non-smokers, reliable, gentle and can communicate in English, French, Swedish and German. ;-)
We know the situation when you want or have to travel and need help with your plants or pets at home. Someone needs to be reliable to take care of your beloved animals or flowers or whatever you have put so much love and time into. That's why we want to help you and take care of your home/garden while you're away.
And of course we're interested in finding some new places in the world that we don't usually choose to vacation in or that we're not really aware of yet. For vacation or a longer sabbatical in the future we don't want to go where everyone else goes. That's why we want to build a new network of other trustworthy people who would like to share a part of their lives with us.
Although this type of networking via the Internet for housesitting partners is new to us, we have looked after houses and gardens for our family and friends. Due to medical reasons, we unfortunately can't take care of cats. With dogs, we are not experienced. But we have some experience with taking care of fishes and birds. Also other little pets like rabbits etc. would be no problem for us.
We love our home and take care of it. It is important to us to treat your home as if it were our own. Respect for property and privacy is just as important to us as treating our surroundings and our neighbours with respect. And if you have special wishes or requirements for us, just write to us.
We are looking forward to hear from you!
