About this sitter

My husband and are in our early sixties but very agile, well at least my husband is. He can pretty much do anything, gardening, odd jobs if needed. I am one of those neat and tidy almost fanatical types so would leave your house better than you left it. My 4th child is our bordie collie, Clover who doesnt like to be left alone, so we know whats its like to worry about your beloved animals, my son would be here to take of her while we are gone.  We are pretty much open to anything, anywhere, almost anytime. Look forward to hearing from you and the endless possibilities.

Why they want to house sit

I did the travelling thing when I was young, went all around the world. I was just waiting for my kids to grow up and be independent enough so that I could travel once again. Finally went back to England after 21years of being absent from my home country. Now I am restless again, I have the travel bug back, dont want to stop. This is an exciting way that I can travel plus help others out by taking care of their homes. There are too many places to see and people to meet to stay at home.

Their experience

We have house-sat a couple of times so can give references? We would definitely take care of your home, animals or whatever. We don't drink, smoke or party but we do like to have fun.
Here is a link to my couchsurfing profile where you can see I have lots of references that you may also look at. https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/jamjar

Testimonials

Highly Recommend!

Sheila and Schon sat for us last October. They arrived the day before so we had a chance to get to know them and explain our pet needs and care of the house. Since both we and Sheila are English, we had a lot in common and very much enjoyed their company. Our weekly vacation was, unfortunately, cut short after a few days since I broke my ankle and we had to return home. Sheila and Schon were completely understanding, even though it meant them having to change their plans. The house was in great shape upon our return and the pets had, obviously, been well taken care of. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending them and hope they will sit for us again under different circumstances!

Great house and cat sitters

Sheila and her husband minded our apartment and took care of our kitty over the Thanksgiving holiday. Sheila is really good about communicating. I posted on kind of short notice, and they were accommodating and flexible. The apartment was in perfect condition when we returned and the cat seemed happy and well cared for. Sheila and Schon are fun, responsible people that I would ask to pet sit again. I definitely recommend them!
