About this sitter

Hi there and thanks for checking our profile. We are Bastiaan & Yolanda from the Netherlands. We have been together since 2010 and happily married since 2014.

We are both very social, responsable, kind, honest, reliable, organised and tidy, active but most of all we are a really caring animal loving couple. We have a very positive mindset and are always in a good mood.
We took care of a lot of animals in our lives. Especially cats & dogs, but also the little one's such as guinea pigs and the big one's such as horses and a lot in between. We love animals and we are very affectionate towards them.
We are flexible, healthy people who would love to help you looking after your loves ones and property.

We already travelled a lot and now we start a whole new adventure and all that comes with it.
In all honesty, we're just hoping to enjoy our balanced lifestyle while enjoying our time.

We can provide for ourselves and we are mainly at home working on our YouTube channel.
We speak Dutch, English and Spanish fluently. German and French on a low level.
She is a trained pedagogue and also worked in sales. He is a certified welder and also worked in the catering industry.
We have our (international) drivers licence.

Bastiaan and I are an 'open book' so please feel free to ask us anything you would like to know.

Thank you for your time and we would be very honoured if you choose us.

We're already looking forward to it!

Why they want to house sit

We decited to sell our house and do what we love the most and enjoying our passion of travelling.
Unfortunately the pandemic hasn't made things easier for us.
Combining house/pet sitting is a great life style because we absolutely love animals. We grew up surrounded by pets and animals.
We already travelled a lot and now we start a whole new adventure and all that comes with it.
Exited to see new locations and too see the places like they really are. Meet new interesting people and experience other new cultures.
We also love nature and we enjoy hinking. All in a relax way, whilst having the joy of animals around us.

Their experience

We have both grown up with a lot of pets and completely understand how important it is for you to know that they are safe, secure and loved whilst you are away. We're very experience of looking after friends pets and several houses throughout the years.

We can tell you a lot more, we are full of stories, but one thing is for certain you won't regret it.

What can they bring to the assignment

Being home owners ourselves, we understand the importancy and will treat everything with respect as if they were our own. So we're happy to take care of your house, plants, the animals, or other little choirs in or out the house while we are there. And always keep you updated frequently during our stay.

Testimonials

Wonderful couple

Bastiaan and Yolanda were wonderful house/pet sitters for us through and through. They were extremely friendly and attentive to all 5 of our fur babies while we were away (and they can be very picky as to whom they like! LOL.) While we were gone, they gave us regular updates on both our pets and the ongoing construction projects on our property. We felt very secure having them watch over our property and possessions. When they left, they made sure our home was in pristine condition. They have an incredible passion for living the digital nomad life, and their positive enthusiasm is infectious. We feel very fortunate to have gotten to know them while they were here, and we hope that they will be available for future assignments for us!

Helpful and friendly couple

Yolanda and Bastiaan stayed in the lodge which was in the reactivating process and helped us wherever it was needed with all their power and they saw the work by themselves. No matter if in the garden, the rooms or in the kitchen, household work was always perfect, everything was left so clean after they used it. We have a cat and a dog and also they used to be of great help to one injured person in the household. Most important support came from the technical side: As Yolanda and Bastiaan are photo and video specialists they created great shots from the rooms and the surrounding of the lodge and fully produced commercial videos, some in interview style to advertise our little hotel. The two of them are a sympathetic couple which are very easy to get along well. They are polite, helpful, honest and clean. We highly recommend them for any following house sitting assignment.
