About this sitter

Hi! We are Joan and David; a very youthful 50 year old semi-retired couple seeking to fill dates around exisitng agreements to house/pet sit and our travel-based professional obligations. We accept both long and short needs, but major holidays tend to be booked well in advance. Please inquire about those type of dates.

Why they want to house sit

We have some freedom and enjoy this opportunity in our lives to travel, but are not millionaires either. We enjoy a "home" setting over hotels so we can cook and "feel at home". We both travel for our professional work at times, but not as much as we used to. Dave is a Wash DC native and Florida resident, tennis pro/fitness trainer who writes and presents at tennis and fitness conventions and special events. Joan is a NYC-based jazz singer (see her singing with the legendary James Taylor at We both do a fair amount of our work from computers, so all we need is an internet connection at your home to keep things going.

Their experience

20+ years! There are same clients over decades who will provide excellent references. Joan is the domestic goddess who keeps floors clean enough to eat off, and Dave is "Mr. Fix it"...great at repairs and problem solving and a.k.a. "Mr Gadget" ...good with tech..computers, home theatres, etc...also the "chef" and in charge of dog-belly-rubbing, ear scratching and general direct dialogue in fluent animalese...if pets respond better to singing; then Joan has the pipes...

What can they bring to the assignment

a car in USA and a ton of TLC anywhere!
