About this sitter

We're a respectful, considerate couple in our 30s, I work on an organic farm and my husband Kenneth is an electrician. We are currently visiting family and travelling in Europe with an open mind to find a place to call home. We are used to simplistic, off grid living, and are familiar with a permaculture homestead way of life. We're outdoorsy, nature lovers who appreciate community. We love having the opportunity to be surrounded by animals and gardens we one day hope to have ourselves. Kenneth is exceptionally handy and can fix just about anything, so you can be assured your home is in safe competent hands and your animals will be cuddled and cared for as if they were our own.

Why they want to house sit

We want the opportunity to experience life as a local in different communities. Plus as we're not in a position to have animals ourselves, we enjoy opportunities to surround ourselves with animal friends.

Their experience

Yes, we have house and pet sat a number of times in British Colombia and the Yukon, Canada. Most recently we cared for an 8 month year old puppy for 5 weeks. We also have experience looking after cats, dogs, ducks, chickens and are accustomed to being around other farm animals. We have great references to share. We're comfortable in many living situations, from being off-grid living in a rustic and remote environment, to living in a townhouse in a city. We enjoy gardening and caring for indoor and outdoor plants. We cared for a plant nursery for 6 months last year.

What can they bring to the assignment

We're very adaptable and enjoy immersing ourselves and embracing every living opportunity that arises. Kenneth is an electrician and very skilled tradesman, so you can be assured your home is in good hands. We are both keen gardeners, with personal interests in healthful living, mycology, ecology and permaculture. We love to care for animals. We enjoy being outdoors and hiking no matter what the weather, so we guarantee any dog will be left happily tired. Recently, we helped train a puppy. We have conversational Spanish and French that we're always looking to practice. We're clean and conscientious and try to leave any home in a better conditon than we found it.

Testimonials

Best imaginable pet-sitting experience; responsible, friendly, helpful and reliable

Eve and Kenny watched my two cats, Freddy and Mina, for 2 weeks in June '19 and they did so very reliably and responsibly. It was a pleasure to lend such lovely people my home, as much as it was a pleasure that they allowed me a worry-free getaway!

Andalusia - House/Cat sitter required immediately!!!

Eve and Kenny took over from our previous Sitters, due to us extending our trip to the UK and stayed for just 3 weeks until our return. During that time, they experienced a higher than normal level of interaction with the local community, with visits from an Electrician who arrived to 'tidy up' some overhead cables that had been cut the previous year, as well as the Local Council, who were concerned by an external water leak, which had deteriorated during our absence. This resulted in Kenny fitting a new valve and extending our hose pipe so that iwe can now use it in places it would not reach previously! In addition, they were kind enough to take my Car for its' annual test (ITV), which Kenny somehow managed to get it through successfully! Our two cats, who are usually friendly towards most of our sitters, took a particular liking to them, even joining them for their walks through the Olive groves - and we have some lovely photos to prove it! Despite an unusual 'chill' in the mountain air for late April, they declined use of our Pellet burners and our electricity consumption was so low during their stay, that I thought we'd been cut off!! My wife and I only spent a couple of days with them before they left for a short camping trip, prior to visiting Eve's family in the UK, but we found them a really nice, relaxed and capable couple, who we would happily recommend to anyone seeking pet friendly sitters.
