Mary and Wayne

70, retired

65, retired

Hi there. We are Mary and Wayne, a retired couple eager to do more than just sit and be retired! We are healthy and active and love to travel. We are independent motorcycle enthusiasts (no riding club affiliation) and this is how we travel. COVID 19 led to cabin fever. As a result we decided to sell the house and become traveling house/pet sitters. Wow how time flys! We are now heading into our third year on the road and are loving it. Best decision ever made. Since joining Housesitters in May of 2021 we have had sits ranging from a few days to three months. We have traveled over 18,000 miles. We love dogs, cats, chickens, parrots, and parakeets and more! We are ready to expand our experience (i.e. goats or pigs?) and are always ready to love and care for your pets and your home. We are both vaccinated and boostered. non-smokers. Feel free to check our reviews. We are proud of the service we provide and hope to hear from you.

Mary and Wayne are the best!! They took great care of our pups and the house. They know how to take care of a home which was of immense help as they realized we had a water leak. They dealt with a few other mishaps that come with caring for a house and took care of it with no problems. Our dogs were very happy, they sent us pics and video. The house was spotless. We could not recommend them more. If you want piece of mind while you’re away-Mary and Wayne should be your choice for sitters. ... MORE
DAYNA ( Georgia, Oct 2023 - 2 weeks 2 nights)
Choosing Mary and Wayne for this sit allowed us to enjoy our time away feeling comfortable and confident that our kitties and our home were in good hands. Mary appreciated our instruction manual and soaked up all the pre-departure training. Mary communicated with us while we were away to provide updates and fun kitty pictures that showed us that everyone there was happy and comfy. (Several times we wished we were the kitties being doted on there and eating Mary's delicious looking food!) The ... MORE

Mary and Wayne were phenomenal house sitters! They took such great care of my 3 doggie! I never had to worry once during the 26 days we were gone. They sent me daily updates and photos of my babies while I was gone. When I came home the house was immaculate, Wayne had trimmed the bushes out front, and cleaned the travertine around the pool, and Mary left me a meatloaf and biscuits for our diner! My neighbors loved them both, and took them out riding on their motorcycle a few times. They are ... MORE

Mary & Wayne were wonderful house sitters. Mary messaged me on a regular basis and took great care of my plants. My house was spotless upon my return. I cannot thank them enough. Great house sitters, totally recommended. Thanks again Mary & Wayne.
SHARON ( Florida, Jun 2023 - 1 week 5 nights)
Mary and Wayne were an absolute joy to work with. We were so thrilled to have them take care of our beloved pup. We arrived back to a very happy and healthy doggie and an impeccably clean and tidy home. You guys are welcome back anytime!
JULIE ( Florida, Jun 2023 - 9 DAYS)
Mary reached to me with gusto when we posted our 3-month-long sit for our home, yard, plants AND pet parrot! (Yes, tall order!) After interviewing M&W and 3 additional couples, we chose them based upon immediate connection, prior positive reviews and intuition. We could not have picked a more caring and reliable couple. They treated our home and pet like their own, kept in good communication and alleviated any concern. We even face-timed with our parrot to assure him we were coming back! ... MORE
KELLY ( Florida, Feb 2023 - 3 months)
I have been remiss in posting a review for Wayne & Mary, ONLY because "re-entry" from vacation brings with it SO many chores that first week home!! I cannot say enough nice things about Wayne & Mary and their recent stay with our three dogs, cat, fourteen chickens, fish and plants/greenhouse. They arrived a day early, thankfully, as we had to leave quickly to beat a snowstorm. Our animals were in SUCH good shape (in good spirits) when we returned. We could tell they were doted on. Our house ... MORE
BECKI ( Texas, Dec 2022 - 3 weeks)
Mary and Wayne we're phenomenal when they graciously watched our pets while we took a 3 week, West Coast road trip. Everything went smoothly and the house was in perfect order after our return. We could tell our pets were taken care of very well. We would recommend to anyone :)
JASON ( Tennessee, May 2022 - 2 weeks 6 days)
What a relief to have found Mary & Wayne! They took such good care of our dogs and our home. Great at giving us updates. And they're fun to spend some time with too. Our Chug kept going to their room to look for them. He got REALLY attached to Wayne. So glad their available to come again for our next trip
ANGELA ( Tennessee, May 2022 - 4 days)
We really enjoyed meeting Mary and Wayne. They travel on a motorcycle and we were expecting severe storms for several day so we had them come and stay with us for 4 days before we left. It was great spending time with them and getting to know them. We felt completely comfortable with them and we knew that they would take good care of our pets. Wayne did some yard work that we never asked or expected him to do. He was amazing. He even drove with Fred to an appointment that was one and a half ... MORE
PATTY ( Tennessee, Apr 2022 - 1 week 4 days)
What a wonderful couple Mary & Wayne are. They took such good care of our house and cats. They even got to know a couple of our great neighbors. We received priodic updates and they were available to chat or text each day we were away. If our schedues match up in the future, we will definitely use them over and over. Thanks Mary & Wayne!
LINDSAY ( Florida, Mar 2022 - 5 days)
Mary and Wayne were wonderful house sitters! They took great care of our dog and house! They even left it cleaner than the found it. They were excellent communicators and kept us up to date if anything went wrong! We highly recommend them as house sitters and will hopefully use them again someday!
