There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
We are a retired couple; married 47 years and have 3 daughters, sons in law and 5 gorgeous grandchildren. We are enjoying the freedom of this stage in life and have been house sitting in England, France and Florida; looking after cats, dogs and chickens. We do love an adventure and are involved in a charity digging wells in rural Uganda. Eddie is a keen gardener though he would say not an expert! We enjoy people watching and drinking coffee, along with walking. Trina enjoys sewing and loves jigsaws. We have enjoyed a variety of family pets over the year but settle now for walking, Maya, our daughter's Hungarian Vizsla, but would enjoy having a cat curled up on my lap again!
We have been on the other side of house sitting so understand the trust and confidence being placed in the house sitters.
Whatever we do, we like to do well. We can provide testimonials.
