About this sitter

My husband who is retired from the Air Force, a former medic, certified mechanic, and a very good handy man (60) and I, a musician and interior designer (59) are a professional couple that have retired and are enjoying life. We have traveled abroad as well as North America. We have been living and traveling in our RV for the past year after turning over our large 4000 sq ft home to our son and his family of seven.

Why they want to house sit

After traveling extensively, we are ready to slow down a little and spend more time enjoying one place instead of always rushing to the next place. We enjoy the quiet and solitude of the deep woods as well as city life. We also love animals. We've owned horses, goats, rabbits, cats and dogs. We've had to give up all our animals except one older 5 lb Chihuahua. (She will only accompany us when permission is given.)

Their experience

Yes, we are experienced house sitters. We always try to leave the property as good as -if not better-than it is upon our arrival.

What can they bring to the assignment

TRUST and CONFIDENCE are the two biggest and most important things that can be brought to each assignment. You will be able to trust us fully with your belongings and have complete confidence that we will do Everything in our power to assure your home and pets will be taken care of and loved until you return.

Testimonials

Mountain House in Boone, NC USA

Vicky Wilburn house sat for me for about 6+ weeks in my mountain house Boone, NC. This was the second time she sat for me and cared for my home and pets. Each time she was outstanding. She and her husband are caring, exact and careful about keeping my surroundings intact. When she had a question she called me directly, but most of the time she handled issues herself. The maintained my property in ship shape and proved handy around the house as well. I would heartily recommend Vicky as a house sitter to anyone anywhere.

Living off grid on a small, remote, private island in Belize, Central America

Vicki and Nathan immediately got the spirit of living on a remote island. To be frugal with everything: the water is collected rainwater, energy comes from the solarsystem...they were always on site, so nobody could "help himself", they kept the island and the house very tidy, gave a lot of effort to improve things. Everything was in an excellent shape, when we returned home after 6 weeks. They loved our pet pig "Mr Piggy", who thinks he is a dog. They treated him naturally and with love! You can trust them 100%, Also they have a great sense of humour and skills to repair EVERYTHING! S+V

Living off grid on a small, remote, private island in Belize, Central America

Vicki and Nathan immediately got the spirit of living on a remote island. To be frugal with everything: the water is collected rainwater, energy comes from the solarsystem, the house has to be protected from rain and winds....they were always on site, so nobody could "help himself". They had a great eye to repair or improve things. The most important thing was, that they loved our pet pig Mr.Piggy and he loved them...he follows them the whole day long like a dog. You can trust them and rely on them for 100% . One bonus is also that Nathan has a great sense of humour and can fix EVERYTHING. S+V
