About this sitter

We are an international couple (german/american) with great travel experience and interest in sustainable and alternative lifestyle. Our interests are widespread: I am working as a teacher for music and maths and Thomas is a psychotherapist, now retired. We love spending as much time as possible in nature and prefer a simple and quiet life, in order to play our instruments, write our books and do some garden stuff if possible. Animals have often been a natural part of our lives and we do appreciate very much their presence and beauty.

Why they want to house sit

We are looking for a beautiful and cozy place where we can retreat and spend time by meditating, reading, writing and enjoying solitude and nature. The more remote, the better... There's no need of entertaining activities nearby. Used to a simple and quiet life in the countryside we would happily take care of a house and animals and any living creature around...

Their experience

We just finished a lovely two-months housesit in France where we were responsible for the well-being of five cats and three horses. Some of the animals needed medication. This was arranged by another organization (Nomador) and we are happy to show some external references below.
In addition I did a lot of woofing while travelling, so there is a great experience in taking care of different types of animals. Mostly I was occupied with dogs and cats but I also fed sheep and donkeys and horses and chicken and ducks and pigs...
Thomas raised beagle dogs as a kid and has had numerous cats and dogs by himself later on. Also he gave his own house and cat in New Zealand to a sitter before and therefore knows well the needs and concerns of an owner.

What can they bring to the assignment

Additionally to what has been said before we have a car and are therefore able to reach even remote countryside places.

Testimonials

One Woman Who Does The Work Of Two

All our past housesitters have been couples so when Ursula said she would like to housesit for us on her own we were rather doubtful. We're off-grid in the depths of the Catalan countryside with four horses, one dog, one pig and one ram to be looked after. However, she persuaded us she could manage everything on her own. And she did. All alone she coped with feeding the animals, taking the dog for walks, and keeping our old mill clean and tidy. She's also a very nice person and we trusted her completely. We'd be delighted to have her again if she were available.

“Ursula was all we had hoped for in a house sitter, and very pleasant company too. Our communication before her arrival was easy and uncomplicated, and, in spite of heavy snow in the vicinity, she arrived as planned. We had a couple of days to get to know her and to familiarise her with our requirements. We were confident she had a clear understanding of what we needed and that she was perfectly capable of looking after our property, cats and herself! While we were away she reassuringly kept in touch with us, and easily managed a couple of small problems. We returned after seven weeks travelling to a warm, clean and tidy home, with two very contented cats in attendance. Ursula had done a great job, and enjoyed her stay too. We would be happy to have Ursula to sit for us again, and would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.”
