We are a Belgian - German Couple, who lived for over 20 years in Spain and travelled the world.
We are strongly connected & passionate with nature & wildlife and we have been blessed to be accompanied during many years by our cats (up to 8 at a time), our dogs (up to 3 at a time, Great Dane, Labrador mix and multi-mix), our horses (2 Shire Horse stallions and 1 Anglo-Hispano-Arabe Stallion).
Being used to work with and for each other successfully for over 9 years in different sociocultural environments, we are a well-balanced, mature, non-smoking, physically fit & mentally healthy, vibrant and pluri-lingual management couple with international, multidisciplinary experiences.
During multiple years we have been professionally active as property managers for HNWI´s and large country estates, but now we seek to offer our know-how in this different type of concept and in a more public manner where pets are often key.
We have lived and/or worked in Spain, France, G.H. Luxemburg, Belgium, Gibraltar, Germany.
In addition do we have an extensive travel & cultural experience such as; Singapore, Australia, Maldives, Turkey, Costa Rica, Panama, Madagascar, Morocco, UAE, Reunion, USA, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Guatemala, Seychelles, Thailand, Multiple Caribbean Islands and very extensively all over Europe.
In general we seek to house / pet sit for long terms, within the EU ideally for 4 weeks or more and outside the EU we like to go for 7-8 or longer.
Preceding house-sits have learned us, that it is most ideal for us to be able to use the property owner´s vehicle, enabling us to deliver a quality service, taking your dog(s) on outside excursions (of course with your previous permission), buy food, litter or other and in case of emergency to bring your pet(s) to the vet.
Because of our previous experiences, we feel the need to say that for us cleanliness, hygiene, tidiness is very important, therefore we like to house-sit a property that is clean, not cluttered, maintained and where we are not required to clean, sanitize & fix the house at our first day of arrival.
We take our house sits serious and live respectfully, therefore we have a standard daily routine of cleaning and maintaining our living space in order to have a peaceful living and to guarantee your happy return.
We have various references (from other webpages) uploaded below + more on file if you need.
We have now grown to a point where we seek to offer our help to home/pet owners and at the same time expand, share and enrich our experiences with even more exciting & life fulfilling moments beyond the traditional standards.
To that us and because we have been professionally active as property managers for HNWI´s and large country estates, it allows us now to offer our know-how in this different type of concept and in a more public manner where pets are often key.
Please know that we are mostly interested in sits that are for a longer time (+1 month).
For more information about us, please contact us personally and we´ll be happy to share with you more information about us and some previous House-Sitting references.
