My husband and I are a quiet, responsible, 50-something Canadian couple. We have had the freedom and means to call many countries home, including Canada, Thailand, Vietnam, Turkey, South Africa, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Panama, Mexico and Indonesia.
We both work online and travel extensively for work and pleasure. House sitting is ideal for us, as we are able to experience different cultures as local residents, and as animal lovers we also have the added pleasure of caring for pets.
We do not have a lot of criteria for a house sit. We have just had the most wonderful experiences with lovely pets and wildlife, beautiful cities, rustic cabins in the middle of nowhere, and wonderful, helpful locals and expats.
We both work online, and we love the company of animals while doing so, so all we need is good internet service and a warm pet (or several) to keep us happy. Otherwise, we're very self-sufficient, so we're just as happy to move to a rural setting as a city. We just need new adventures, and we can find them anywhere.
We have shared our lives with many animals: from horses to dogs, to cats, to ducks to chickens, to guinea fowl and sheep. The hardest part about the end of our house-sitting assignment will be saying goodbye to your animals.
We are experienced house sitters, who have taken care of homes and pets in city and rural environments for over 8 years. We have received five stars for all of our 50+ sits. From off-grid solar living with only water access in the rain forest to ocean front condo life in metropolitan areas to mountain chalets with extensive power outages and an hour's drive from grocery stores, we have done it all.
We are "can do" people and we will make sure your home and pets are well cared for.
We are great with animals and have had the pleasure of sharing our lives with many pets, including those that fly, run and swim. (Please see our list.)
Thomas and I are handy. We have owned and built many homes and farms in South Africa and Canada, and we are well versed in home maintenance in both warm and cool climates.
We are clean, tidy and house proud, and would take care of your home and garden as if they were our own.
We have wonderful character references, including one from the Costa Rican Ambassador to Panama, and the Panamanian Consul General in Toronto.

Sheron and Thomas looked after our home and much loved cats wonderfully well. We would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to leave their home and pets in safe, caring hands. They are friendly, communicative and also very professional. We very much hope we will be able to tempt them to return when we travel again in the future.

We can really recommend Thomas and Sheron as house/pet sitters. They are professional, friendly and took great care of our cats - and home. They even replaced our broken shower head with a new one! A plus for leaving us beautiful gifts - but we would have been totally satisfied with their excellent care alone. We would definitely have them back anytime!

A dog in Prague!
Thomas and Sheron were the best sitters we could have possibly hoped for! Our dog took to them instantly and they sent us fun updates and pictures nearly every day that we were away. Not only did we come home to the happiest dog ever- but the flat was spotless- everything washed, the bed was made… and they left us gifts and snacks! :) Absolutely lovely! Everything was perfect, and we would so gladly have them back again and again. Amber, Marek, and Gatsby
