Retired Couple To Care for Your Home & Pet(s)

65, Retired

76, Retired

We are a good choice for your pets and home because we will take care of everything as though it were our own. We are an active, fun-loving couple who do not smoke, drink (or do drugs).

We have been traveling internationally since our retirement ten years ago (from our University positions). We love taking care of surrogate pets in their own homes. Then we work in our own travel around our sit schedule while we visit family and friends. We are available for a long-term assignment.

We have loads of experience in house/pet sitting - caring for houses, pets, gardens and pools. As property owners ourselves, we are very handy in doing repairs and maintenance. And if we cannot do it, we are very capable of managing repair people. We have references available from home owners we have "sat" for in the past!

Let us take care of your pet/home while you are away so you have one less thing to think about!

This was our first time using a house sitter and we were nervous about it, but what a great experience. My dog received lots of exercise and attention with Debbie and Chip. The cats were happy not to be boarded. It was nice to know the house was in good hands. We came home to a clean house, and Debbie even left us a coffee cake for in the morning. I'd totally use them again. 5 stars. :)

Debbie and Chip were extremely responsible, diligent and pleasant house sitters for our property. They communicated frequently, took excellent care of the house, the car and the garden, and were a real pleasure to deal with. We had complete peace of mind while we were traveling. We recommend them highly, without any reservations. You'd be lucky to have them stay at your property!

Thank you for your kind words! We feel the same way about your home (which is beautiful and comfortable), gardens (fun to putter in) and interaction (great communication including clear, thorough instructions)! We look forward to returning to our surrogate home during your future travels. Be well!
No rating I am so grateful and honored to have had Chip and Debbie take care of my home while I was away. I had no worries at all which means the world to me. They cared for my home as if it was theirs. I too feel as if I have made new friends and look forward to seeing them in the future.

No rating What a wonderful experience for us. We went on a 3 week road trip without our dogs. They were very well cared for in our home by Debbie and Chip. We could communicate while were gone, they sent us pictures too. Debbie and Chip are a great couple - low key and caring.
