Hi, we are an active, professional, non-smoking, semi-retired couple in their early 50's who are flexible on location and duration.
Having recently sold our house to downsize we are looking for new locations to explore the next chapter in our lives before deciding, if that is possible, where next to put down roots.
We have done quite a few housesits over the years covering both rural and town\city living as well as differnet types of pets around the UK and are looking to spread our wings to explore new and old locations now that we have the time. When sitting we always look after someone's home as if it were our own and are very conscientious about maintaining and sorting out issues should any arise.
So what do we bring to the table, well we are a double act, both reliable, responsible and fortunate to be flexible in what happens next. I'm the handyman around the house and garden - having done most of our previous renovations and repairs, as well as looking after the maintenance and up keep of Maria's mum's large 4 double bedroomed house for many years. Maria is a perfectionist and keeps a clean and tidy house, she is well organised and loves to cook. She also has extensive experience cleaning and housekeeping having had her own company in the past.
We would be happy to look after your dogs, (large or small), cats and other animals and would be happy to take on even larger animals e.g. horses, ponies, alpacas, larmas but would need to be shown what to do. We are also willing to undertake routine maintenance tasks (e.g. cutting the grass, shovelling snow etc) for long term sits.
