I am an experienced home sitter, with successful home sits in various locations in Europe, Canada and Central America. As a person, I am a responsible, mature and conscientious individual, very responsive to the needs of the home owner.
I am seeking an authentic setting in either a rural or urban locale. I'm open to short-term sits throughout the year. I'm especially interested in a longer term house sit (1-3 years) anywhere in the world.
My experience confirms that house sitting allows for a more personalized and unique vacationing experience; as opposed to the conventional tourist hotels. Developing a relationship with the family and their neighbors adds to a mutual feeling of comfort and trust; as well as providing more of a basis for the authentic nature of the destination experience.

This was our second time with Larry sitting our house. He was very amenable to our timing both on departure and return, and was extremely punctual and friendly as before. He kept the house in good order, we felt very comfortable while away that he was taking good care of our cats and fish, and on our return the house and garden were immaculate. We strongly recommend Larry to anyone looking for a sitter!
Larry was, from our first communication, friendly, open, and helped educate us on our first time using a MMH sitter! He provided updates for peace of mind while travelling, and took great care of our cats, fish, and elderly rat. On our return the house was spotless, all plants happy, and he provided a friendly welcome and debrief chat. I hope Larry had a great time exploring Hamilton, and we'd be very happy to both recommend and use Larry in the future.
Larry took great care of our home and property while we were away on an extended trip halfway around the world. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing a house sitter. We have stayed in touch and I know he would welcome more opportunities to house sit wherever needed as he is in that enviable position of being free to travel. I just hope he's available the next time we need a house sitter! Joanna in Costa Rica
