About Rhonda Gilkey:

Hello! My husband Steve and I are early retirees residing in  Illinois to be by family for awhile.  We recently purchased land in CO to build on in the not too far away future.


I am a licensed Colorado Realtor, having resided there for over 19 years, near Denver and in Winter Park, near the ski resort. My husband of 31 years, is working part time as a handy man to keep busy.
We love anything and everything  to do with houses, viewing, caring for, fixing up, staging etc. As well as plant  and animal lovers.
We've cared for and loved a Samoyed, Labrador/Retriever, Beagle/pitbull, Great Dane as well as many cats and bulls in Costa Rica!

We would love the opportunity to help a homeowner in need of a truly trusted sitter duo and we would treat your home with the utmost care just like it was our own.  We have always maintained clean and we'll kept houses and are able to think on our feet and problem solve should the need arise.

We've most recently owned/lived and worked a 31 acre gentlemen's farm in Costa Rica chock full of animals, exotic fruits, trees++

Along with excellent references, my goal is to provide you worry free time away, so that you can enjoy your next adventure or second home.  

Thanks for the opportunity.
Rhonda and Steve Gilkey

Home and cat sitter-
Rhonda and Steve were amazing cat and home sitters!
They were everything and more than I could have asked for.
Excellent communicators, friendly, beyond clean and tidy. I believe my home was cleaner upon my return home.
My cat was happy and we'll cared for and doted on in my absence.
I would hire Rhonda and Steve again in an instant.
Peace of mind!
