Hello! We are Carlos and Sue, an adventurous couple with a deep love for animals and a passion for travel. With over 25 years of marriage and a sense of adventure in our hearts, we have embarked on a journey of house sitting and exploration.
I'm originally from a cozy farming community in Northern Wisconsin, where I grew up surrounded by animals. Carlos, on the other hand, moved to the suburbs of Chicago from Paraguay when he was just ten years old. Our different backgrounds have brought us together and expanded our horizons.
After experiencing the hustle and bustle of the "American Dream" in the Chicago area, we decided it was time for a change. In 2010, we made a bold move and sold our house, following our hearts to the enchanting land of Belize. Instantly falling in love with its beauty and tranquility, we have been exploring this incredible world and chasing our dreams.
Recently, we've embraced the online work lifestyle, allowing us the freedom to live life on our own terms. We've discovered that our passion for travel and animals can be beautifully combined through house and pet sitting. It's the perfect way for us to experience new places, meet adorable pets, and create unforgettable memories.
Our journey has led us to various paths, including managing a charming boutique hotel in Belize and owning our own home for 15 years. These experiences have instilled in us a strong sense of responsibility and a deep appreciation for maintaining the utmost care and respect for both homes and the beloved pets that reside within them.
When it comes to house sitting, we have a special affinity for upper-end properties. We adore the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the finer details, providing an exceptional level of care and attention. Longer stays of a month or more allow us to truly establish a bond with the pets and create a harmonious experience for everyone involved.
So, if you're seeking house sitters who will treat your home with the utmost respect and shower your beloved pets with love and care, look no further! We'd be honored to be considered for your house sitting needs. Rest assured that with us, your home and furry companions will be in capable and loving hands.
We've always had a special place in our hearts for dogs and cats, treating them like family members. As our love for travel grew, we realized that having our own pets wouldn't fit our nomadic lifestyle. That's when we discovered the wonderful world of house sitting. It's the perfect way for us to combine our love of animals with our passion for travel, all while exploring new places. House sitting allows us to shower pets with love and care, creating unforgettable memories along the way. It's a win-win situation that brings joy to our lives and the lives of the adorable furry companions we have the privilege to care for.
In addition to our extensive house sitting experience, we also had the wonderful opportunity to manage a boutique resort in Belize. This experience allowed us to further cultivate our skills in providing exceptional care for properties and ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable stay for guests. We understand the importance of attention to detail and maintaining a high standard of cleanliness and organization. Our background in hospitality has further enhanced our ability to create a harmonious and delightful experience for homeowners and their cherished pets.
As a responsible and caring couple, we bring a deep sense of pride and dedication to every assignment we take on. When entrusted with the care of your home and pets, we approach it with utmost respect and treat them as if they were our own. We understand the importance of maintaining a secure and nurturing environment for your furry companions. With our attention to detail, reliability, and genuine love for animals, you can trust that we will go above and beyond to ensure their well-being and happiness during our stay.

Sue and Carlos, are friendly, reliable and caring sitters. My dogs bonded with them immediately . my home and animals were in safe hands, all the animals were clearly cared for and happy and Carlos did a great job keeping everything clean and tidy and even took my dog Rudy to see his physiotherapist . The cat colony is a challenge especially when it’s time for food , but they coped well and survived the ordeal. Great and highly recommended sitters! I think
Sue and Carlos came on their first trip to Europe and the UK and took up my invitation to housesit for Miss Polly Pocket and Bubble. They bonded very quickly with the two pets, particularly Miss Polly Pocket, who on my return after a month away was not concerned at all at my absence and obviously had fallen in love with both Carlos and Sue. The house was clean and tidy on my return and the garden and grass had been well maintained. I'm not sure if Carlos and Sue will return to the UK but they would be more than welcome to housesit for me in the future. I wish them well on their travels and would be happy to offer personal recommendation for future house and pet sits.
Carlos and Sue really stood out among all the housesitters we have had (every year for over 10 years). They were incredible. The did a 10 week sit with our two dogs and cat. One dog has some serious physical issues and anxiety. They took her to physical therapy and encouraged her daily swims. They lovingly took care of all our animals and our large garden. Carlos fixed plumbing issues and worked with plumbers/electricians.They fit nicely into this small community and made our home a very happy place. Our dogs really missed them when they left! We highly recommend Carlos and Susan! We hope they come back for another sit! ;)
