About this sitter

Hello, we are Paul and Janis and we understand the importance of having trusted house sitters in your home while you travel. When you are away, you want to relax knowing that your home is secure and that your animals are lovingly cared for. It’s all about comfort and peace-of-mind, and we want to provide that for you.

We are from Southern California, in our early 60s, both non-smokers, have no dependents, and no pets. Because we are retired, we are very flexible and willing and able to travel to your location to take care of your beloved pets and cherished possessions.

Why they want to house sit

Housesitting gives us the opportunity to see other parts of the world while providing home care and ensuring beloved pets are happy and comfortable in their own environment. We don’t currently have any animals, so we relish the opportunity to cuddle, walk, play with, and provide love and attention to the pets we care for.

Their experience

Our most recent reference:

“Paul and Janis took care of my house and cat for a month in June 2018. I highly recommend them for their easy-going nature, dependability, and thoughtfulness. They took excellent care of my cat, sending me brief messages and photos often enough that I didn’t worry about anything. They left the house in excellent condition, and the cat slept on their bed for a week after I came home; he almost seemed to wish they were there instead of me! I would welcome them back any time.”
J Onstott, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

What can they bring to the assignment

We have been homeowners for over 40 years, and owned, managed, and maintained rental properties for 25 years. We understand the importance of taking good care of a home and ensuring that everything is well-maintained and running smoothly.

We both had professional careers (Paul was a mechanical engineer, and Janis was a marketing professional) before we retired. We are quiet and respectful, and know the importance of regular communication. You will be comfortable knowing that, even though you are away, you won’t be out-of-touch.

Testimonial for Janis Heppel

Janis and her husband took great care of our Maltipoo, Tootsie. They loved on her and took her for walks. Our house was spotless when we returned. Actually it looked like they had never been there. I highly recommend using them to take care of your pert.
