EXPERIENCED HOUSE SITTER/PET SITTER COUPLE WITH NATIONAL & INTERNATIONAL REFERENCES
We are a responsible, reliable and trustworthy married couple and would love to help you with your house/pet sitting needs. We are both non-smokers. We have lots of experience with pet and house sitting which gives us the opportunity to work together and travel to new places and make new friends along the way.
John is a retired Insurance executive and spent 8 years in the US Navy. Alida is a self employed Health & Wellness Products Broker which is primarily internet and phone based business.
We have traveled extensively by water and land and enjoy meeting people. We truly love animals but because of our lifestyle we are unable to have pets of our own so, we would especially enjoy and love your pets as if they were our own and give them the care and affection the deserve.
John grew up on his family's commercial gladiolus farm a we've always had gardens where ever we lived. So caring for your gardens would be great pleasure for us. John is also an all around "fix it" man and skilled in electrical, construction and yard work.
We have owned homes and several sailboats and are quite adept to maintenance and emergency repairs. There are very few things that we can not repair or problems we can not solve. We live aboard and cruise on our sailboat 6 months of the year and are faced with problems that must be solved without any outside assistance.
Since 2006, we have house sat numerous times, including house/pet sitting in England in a large home for a month. We kept the owner updated with regular photos of her dog and how he was doing.
We house sat in Annapolis, MD annually for 2 or 3 weeks and in 2013 the homeowner left for 4 months leaving us responsible for bill payments, opening mail, minor maintenance and giving regular updates.
We would be happy to speak with you by phone, Skype or Facetime as often as you feel necessary before you leave as we fully understand the importance of choosing the right couple, as well as during your absence to keep you up to date.
We could continue on with our experience but you can read our satisfied home owners reference letters under my references on our account.
Let us help you take that trip, visit family or take care of out of town business with confidence and peace of mind that your home, pets and property are in good hands. We are available at a moments notice and can house sit in North America and abroad.
Thank you for taking the time to read our profile.
