I am a writer and painter. In the dozen years since earning my Master of Fine Arts in creative writing, I’ve composed poetry on a Fulbright Fellowship in Germany, ghostwritten fiction in Spain, edited theology in Switzerland, taught literature and art on a distant island in Micronesia, and have recently been exploring prophetic writing and painting here on the mainland. I’ve published writings and exhibited art all along the way. My writing desk and easel are now to be found in the mythical State of Jefferson, but I love to travel, and I enjoy extended "writing retreats" in locations near and far. Since I believe that our atmospheres effect us, I prefer to housesit nice, clean homes that are well loved by their owners. (And, for work, I do need reliable WiFi internet access and good reading light.) annaelkins.com read more
We are two professionals, partners with many years' experience together
traveling and living abroad. Charles has been a full-time instructor at
the University of Colorado for many years, and now teaches online
university courses. His poetry has appeared in literary journals in the
US, the UK, and Australia. Sean is a successful author of children's
educational articles, books, and curricula. We are digital nomads, professionals who carry on our careers from our laptops while
moving and living abroad. We love this life! Over many years of travel
on six continents and more than five dozen countries, we have found that
living in others' homes and caring for their pets (and sometimes
livestock), broadens and deepens our experience not only of that place
and time (and those adorable companion animals), but of our own lives.
Full-time year-round house-sitters since 2013, we have house-sat and pet-sat 32+ lovely homes and estates in England, Scotland, Ireland, France, It... read more

My name is Susan and I like to be called Susan. I am a
retired office professional. I like to work on fiber arts like knitting or
crocheting. Also reading, walking and gardening.
I have experience with owning houses and know how important
it is to have peace of mind.
I am working on my second year of house sitting. My last
appointment was for a couple who had a beautiful home and mini farm. Had baby
chics while they were away too! Met the neighbor when he came over with one of
the goats. He was so kind to help me mend the fence.
I need to house sit for 4 months every year. I live in a 55+
RV Co-op community and the regulations only allow for eight months occupancy.
But I can take those four months anytime and also not all at the same time. So,
you can see that Iâ€™m pretty flexible. I do ask for advance notice so I have
time to prepare.
House sitting allows me to have a roof over my head and you
the peace... read more

I am a retired licensed Security professional with the last 10 years spent maintaining access for a private golf community. I understand confidentiality requirements as well as the need for a relationship of trust for you to bring me into your home. I am a single, non smoker, non drug using adult.

I look forward to establishing long term recurring assignments with my clients. read more

We are a non-smoking, homeschooling family (single mom, 14-year old son and 9-year old son) that has been traveling for the past three years. We have been to 48 of 50 states, traveled through most of the southern Canadian provinces, spent three weeks in Costa Rica, two months in the Dominican Republic and six months in Europe.We are now planning on finding a place in the western US to settle down. However,we are not sure which area we like best so thought perhaps we could house-sit for a little while to see what areas we like. We have been renting condos, apartments and flats all over the world during our entire three years of traveling and take very good care of the homes where we stay. Some were vacation rentals but many were homes where the owner was away for an extended period of time. We have also pet-sat and house-sat for friends and relatives. We have very good references and would take very good care of your home and furry family. read more
We are a retired, active couple in our early sixties who enjoy new experiences. Our travels are just beginning, and we recently returned from a trip to Greece, have traveled to Ireland, and Mexico this January.We learned about these sites this Summer , and actually discovered a wonderful house/pet sitter through a Housesitter America site.We are non smokers, mostly vegan, definitely drug free, and enjoy local foods. Our family has had pets for over twenty years, two dogs and two cats. We currently have a dog, who is ten, and a cat, who is eighteen. We do not take them on our travels, as they much prefer to be home. Our dog goes on long walks twice a day, rain or shine. Pets and how they are treated is a priority for us. They are family and we would care for them in that capacity. Home ownership has given us much experience in property maintenance. Our family lived in our last home for twenty three years, our current home for four. Our downsize has allowed us the ... read more
Hi folks, After retiring from my construction company a few years ago, I realized my skills would help others with their properties. And I have, in several different venues. Also, being a homeowner for 30 years gave me some insight as to how to maintain and identify issues. Additionally, being a family guy, dogs [and sometimes cats] have always been a very important part of the program. And for good reason, as I totally love dogs. I'm on a very flexible schedule presently, and can take assignments anywhere from two weeks to three or four months quite easily. read more
I brought my own 3 large German Shepherds and 8 cats to the USA when I immigrated to this country in 2003. Two of those cats are still alive aged 17 and 20 years of age. My wife and I love our pets and look after them like they were our children. I have had cats and dogs in my life since I was born. I am relaxed with animals and seek to make them feel at home. I have looked after our two horses since 2004, fed and watered and groomed and dewormed them. I am a USA citizen since 2009. I look forward to making your pets feel relaxed. I am trustworthy and reliable. You can enjoy your day or week away from home, while I look after your pets. Chris read more
Hi,We just joined this website group and want to introduce
ourselves. We are not new, however, to hosting and taking care of people and animals. We have been running a 4.9 star Superhost Airbnb for four years now. We are house proud and love taking care of our guests. We feel the same with taking care of someone else's home and four legged family members. As you can see from our profile, we have retired and living in Bend, OR. Our ancestors are from France and we have wanted to spend some time there exploring the country. We
are open to short term or longer term at this point. Exploring what is
possible. You can go to my website:

A Bit About Me:
I have a background in executive administration and a
master's degree in business communications and leadership. I've spent over 20
years being trusted with personal, confidential information and getting the job
done, including over 10 years as a business manager in real estate, and another
5 years as a business manager in a residential home maintenance company.
My first loves though are writing, teaching and personal
development. I have several books published now on topics in self-help and how
to write, and am working on another. I'm an avid learner and am building an
infopreneur business online to support others in realizing their dreams and
getting their message to the world. In the meantime, Iâ€™m using my TEFL
Certification to teach English online to people around the world.
I'm typically a home-body, enjoying time to write, read and
I'm always taking some kind of online class or training. At the same time, I
also enjoy getting out, walking, h... read more
Hi there! I am a homeowner that treats other people's homes as if they are my own. I have a dog and I used to train guide dogs for the blind so I am very experienced with dogs...â€¦â€¦.and cats...â€¦â€¦â€¦.and horses.

I am energetic, committed, honest, reliable and hard-working. I would want to have my mind put at ease so I could go away and not have to worry if I were looking for a house-sitter - that is exactly what you can expect from me. read more
