About this sitter

We are a couple of experienced exchangers looking to care for your home, or exchange. We live in Colorado, USA, and we are trying to see as much of the world as possible now that Eileen is retired and are interested in 1--4 week, maybe longer, adventures around the world a couple times each year. We are homeowners, and would care for your home as if it were our own. Eileen is a retired hospice nurse, and Jim is a business owner.
We have four grown children and 9 grandchildren and now we can wander and they get to dream of future travel for themselves.

Why they want to house sit

Living in a home allows us to become part of a community instead of a hotel guest on the outside.

Their experience

We have had a number of successful exchanges since we discovered this wonderful vacation alternative. We have had pets for many years, but once our children left home we decided to travel and love other peoples' pets.
I have used mindmyhouse often to have someone stay in our home. We have traveled around the world extensively for the past 25 years, and enjoy the adventure of different places and countries.
We have many references from Airbnb’s we have stayed in, and I would be happy to copy those for you.

What can they bring to the assignment

We have always owned our own home, and appreciate the care a home needs. The pictures show our yard. Also we have been pet owners, cats. and a German Shepherd, in the past, and would care well for yours. We will follow your instructions for the care of your home and pets. Owning a business and Nursing teach attention to detail.

Eileen and Jim came to our house on Vieques, Puerto Rico to mind our two 1 year old puppies and of course our house. Because of COVID19 related changes, our first sitter was unable to totally complete his stay here and we were unable to meet Eileen and Jim except by phone before their arrival. They were able to step in and take responsibility for two extremely active(and mostly untrained) puppies. We talked occasionally and they sent us greatly appreciated pictures. We appreciated their thoroughness in taking care of the house and dogs. It is always great to meet great people who value their responsibilities and are able to enjoy what Vieques has to offer.

Highly recommended house and petsitters. Many thanks for your support +++

We highly recommend Eileen and Jim as your future house and petsitters. They have been wonderful to our two cats over the long period of almost 7 weeks. Eileen kept in contact and sent photos. The experience for the two of us couldn't be better and we felt relaxed and safe, knowing the two of them were super reliable, helpful and friendly. Unfortunately, they had to cope with much more rain than usual at that time. We felt sorry for them. But they were happy, enjoying their time in our wonderful caribbean enviroment, were never complaining. Jim has even installed a 240V take out for us : ) ... It was great to meet you both the first two days. We would like to thank you again for your great support and both wish you the very best for your personal future and your future house and pet sittings. Choose for them, they are both great!!! ???????? Muchos saludos y Pura Vida /Karin & Mika.
