Why they want to house sit

As a empty nester, I love to give care and enjoy the energy/space to any place that houses life. I like to observe Earth as she houses all of her children in various geographies, cultures, and diverse backgrounds, while I further discover/learn about myself.

I have diverse exposure/assignments in my provision of services. I have successfully completed and traveled to assignments in over 5 different countries (and counting) and have enjoyed them all from 3 weeks to over 8 months long term assignments. Reference contact info are available upon request/serious consideration. Thank you.

I am patient, trustworthy, communicative as desired, observant, resourceful, compassionate, discreet as requested, and responsible.

Two month house sit

Kimberly did a great job managing our home, yard, indoor & outdoor plants - and feeding our wildlife. We left knowing our home would be in good hands.

Amazing attitude, exceptional communication skills, very accommodating

Kimberly and her son, Donald spent a month house and pet sitting while I was away, cheerfully working under less than ideal accommodations. Construction workers had not completed work on my home before I left on my trip. Kimberly’s arrival was a couple of days after my departure and only hours after the workers finished. She was such a good sport to accept this job under this atypical situation, nearly the whole contents of the house was packed up in boxes. She had access to few of the creature comforts that a normal house would have. Furniture, appliances, and some kitchen tools were about the only things available. I felt horrible that someone was moving in for a month with the house in such a state. Her emails and text messages both before and after arrival were reassuring to me. We did a video call walk-through so I could talk about the house and she could show me my new floors. I laughed out loud at how the workers had arranged the furniture when they brought it back into the house. Kimberly took it in stride. She is super easy going and very personable. During the month, Kimberly consistently checked in once or twice a week sending photos of the cats. I was happy to meet up with Kimberly and Donald after my trip. They stayed with me a few days until their next house sitting gig. I loved hearing about the life of a house sitter. She makes it sound like a fabulous adventure. I would recommend Kimberly for future house sitting gigs. She is delightful.

One week in San Antonio, Tx

Kimberly was exactly what she described herself as in her description. She was living locally, just a coincidence, and she was extremely personably and very capable about my two pets. Both my cat and dog loved her dearly. She was able to assume both pet and housing responsibilities, and to do it very quickly and assuredly. She was very organized and kept my wife and I in contact as much as we chose to. We would highly recommend her to anyone else and we will consider her again for a "Mind My House" stay next time. My only regret is that I was not able to give her the password to my home WiFi because I forgot it. She did not seem to mind, however.

Loving catsitter

Kimberly came for a short stay to look after our home and cat Quincy. As soon as she walked in the door, and almost until the moment I left, he was smitten and in her arms. He was well cared for, receiving all the affection and attention he needed. Kimberly also kept in regular touch every day with photo updates of Quincy's wellbeing, which put us at ease from afar!

KIMBERLY OWENS

Kimberly and her son, Donald, are experienced house sitters and looked after our house and dog in northern California for a month (October-November, 2018). We have nothing but praise for both of them. In addition to keeping our home very clean, they lavished love and attention on our lovely 7 year old, part lab, Winnie. That, of course, was the most important thing! Additionally, they were very good about keeping in touch, sending photos and videos on a regular basis. We feel very comfortable in recommending them for any house/pet sitting assignment. Stephen and Linda Turner

Good Housesitter

Kimberly did a wonderful job taking care of my house and two cats while I was away. She spent one night before I left and made an excellent dinner. We had some very enjoyable conversation about travel and music. I had a very good impression of her in the short time I had to get to know her.
