About this sitter

We are 2 Canadians, Patrick et Caroline, in their early thirties who are looking to take some time off the routine and our home for a few weeks/months. We like quiet places and remote places but are opened to an experience in a city.

Patrick is manually skillful. We built our house a few years ago. Patrick also has knowledge in various domains such as mechanics and electricity. He works for the largest hydroelectricity company in Canada and his job consists of maintaining and constructing hydroelectric turbines.

Caroline is an authentic, easy-going and caring person. She loves trail running and new experiences. For now, she is working a research coordinator in the field of public health and is a registered dietician. However, she is looking for an opportunity allowing her to connect with people.

Patrick and Caroline are a pretty good team working well together, whether for the purpose of work, leisure or adventures!

Why they want to house sit

We try to avoid areas that are too touristic, to discover unknown places and to have a local experience of places we visit. We are active and we like to be busy with outdoor chores as well as caring for animals. Housesitting through MindMyHouse provides these opportunities. We also think that housesitting is the perfect "introduction" to a country/town!

Their experience

In 2015, we travelled for 1 year and had the chance to stay in Saskatchewan (Canada), France and Costa Rica thanks to MindMyHouse and take care of horses and dogs. We really appreciated the experience ! We would be delighted to provide these references on request. We worked on a quasi-self-sufficient family farm in Chili and hence took care of various animals and accomplished a wide variety of work.

What can they bring to the assignment

We are trustworthy, reliable and resourceful persons. We will always find a solution. We are respectful of people's home and environment. You can count on us to do all sorts of work. We are quite simple and minimalist. Indeed, we don’t need luxury to feel confortable! You could enjoy you trip with peace of mind.

Testimonials

Caroline and Patrick

Caroline and Patrick were the most wonderful house sitters that we could possible have had . They looked after the animals and the house perfectly .They dealt with an emergency regarding one of our cats brilliantly. Our dog absolutely adored them and as far as we could tell the horses and the chickens were equally happy The couple were charming and helped us hugely. Patrick did some wonderful work in our house and also collected us and delivered us to the airport.

The best house sitters!!

Caroline and Patrick house sat for us for 3 months in Costa Rica a couple of years ago and they were superb in every way. They took care of our house and garden doing an excellent job. They were very resourceful and handled any problems with a good amount of calm and skill. We could depend on them 100% and always felt at ease and comfortable knowing they were here for us. Reliable, mature and friendly are other characteristics that they exemplify. We don't have pets but are sure Caroline and Patrick would have been very responsible and caring that area as well. All the neighbors became very fond of them. Any house owner will be fortunate to have these two young wonderful people caring for their house and property. In our book they got a grade of A++.

Delightful

Caroline and Patrick will remain outstanding in my memory as thoughtful, responsible people who pride themselves in a job well done. They cared for our three cats, one dog and six horses for two weeks. They are salt-of-the-earth people who’s services I would re-engage in a heartbeat.
