About this sitter

My wife Jessica and I were excited to be in Europe for 6 months and did some house sitting! We quit our jobs in May 2017 and visited 20 countries. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in anxiety, depression, and marriage counseling. My wife is a 6th grade teacher. We love backgammon (Tavla) and riding our scooter. I play the tuba for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square.

Why they want to house sit

What attracted us to this idea was the intimacy of the experience. Hotels are lame, let's admit it. The reason we will be traveling to Europe was because of our 2 month trip to SE Asia last year. We wished we could have lived like the locals (cook in an apartment/house, shop, meet neighbors, etc...) but we did not have that experience this time around. Staying in one place for longer to have these experiences is the only way we see it happening.

Their experience

We house sat in Castello Cabiaglio, Italy, taking care of 4 beautiful black cats, from July-Aug. 2017 through this website. We helped this family for 3 weeks.

I think what makes us most qualified to take care of your house is that we've lived in a house for our whole life. We know how to pay bills, take care of the yard, plant a garden, clean, cook, take care of animals, you name it! A lot of people have only lived in apartments after they leave home for college.

What can they bring to the assignment

Complete honesty. We live by that principle in all that we do and it is what our Christian faith teaches us. We take accountability for our actions and aim to be honest and upright with all people. Also, it is in the nature of my wife and I to make good connections with people and want others to be pleased with our work. You won't be disappointed in choosing us :).

Honest, reliable, responsible friendly folks we would warmly welcome back anytime!

Jeff and Jess took care of our cats while we were on a road trip for three weeks in the summer of 2017. They are a young, friendly couple on a very cool travel, and an absolute pleasure to share time with. They were our first ever housesitters, so we did not really know what to expect. Jeff and Jess managed to exceed all our expectations! I think the best summary of our experience with Jeff and Jess is that we found our cats back happy and completely relaxed; and that, when we left them at the Milano bus station, it felt like saying goodbye to good friends. To give some impressions: Jeff and Jess kept very close contact. When one of our cats did not came in (most are supposed to come in every night), they notified us immediately and kept us updated until the cat came in eventually. They notified on possibly important issues with the house as well, and whenever they were in doubt about anything. They strictly followed all the things we agreed upon. We found our house back clean, and the garage and the car they could use were even cleaner than we left them (for which we do feel a pang of guilt). Jeff and Jess got along very well with our neighbhours, even organizing a dinner with all of them, which we think is very cool. All in all we most heartily recommend Jeff and Jess, and will welcome them back anytime!

Christy Johansen - Landlord

Jeff and Jessica Scott have rented for us for several years. They are honest and upstanding individuals. We have appreciated that anytime a maintenance problem presented itself at the home, they immediately contacted us. They have been concerned about the well being of our home like we are. They have taken excellent care of the property, have been considerate of their neighbors and have kept the home tidy and neat. I recommend them as house sitters with no hesitation. They are wonderful individuals in every way.
