About this sitter

Hi there!
We are a Czech couple who are fortunate enough to be traveling full-time now!

Hi, I am Kamil! (27)
I absolutely love traveling and visiting new places - and finally, in 2021 I was able to start working on my own full-time, it has taken me a bit of time to realize that now IS the perfect time to fulfill my long-overdue dream of working from anywhere.
I enjoy reading, exercising, learning about new things, and picking up new skills - always down to conversate about any odd topic, oh and also I enjoy helping people do things.

When it comes to animals, the activity I enjoy the most is spontaneous playtime and seeing the animal genuinely happy.



Hi I am Erika! (30)

My favorite activities are cooking delicious (and sometimes crazy) food, singing, dancing, and cleaning - back in the Czech Republic I used to clean & tidy people's houses on their schedule, so plenty of experience even with cleaning big windows or long forgotten dirt.

I really enjoy minimalistic living and I always strive to leave the property in the same (or better) shape than upon arrival.

I had cats as pets for my whole life, so I am very familiar with them and have no issues taking care of them.
Oh, I also like gardening and taking care of plants!

Non smokers, active drivers.

Why they want to house sit

UPDATED - 10/2022
We are currently in Switzerland, on a house sit from 29.9.-8.1.2023 - our first long-term house sit, everything is going great so far, and we are looking for our next destination!

UPDATED 8/2022
We have had our first two experiences(for the whole month of 07/2022) with online house sitting - and we found out that this is definetly the way we want to live now!

We are ready to start house-sitting fulltime and experience different ways of living - since we are both used to (and love) having pets around us, we think house-sitting is an awesome opportunity.

We both enjoy communicating, long walks, cooking (and eating) new food and chilling with animals (being present when there is an animal around is way more fun than watching movies)

Based on our experiences, we are always very respectful of other people's homes, and love to show gratefulness by taking care of everything to the best of our abilities.

We approach life with a win/win philosophy and do our responsibilities diligently.

Their experience

UPDATED - first two online house sit experiences!
1) 4-18.7.2022 Moflete in Valencia, Spain -
Copied from another website

Silvana Trinidad
We needed a sitter on short notice because we had an impromptu trip. It was our first time using this app and also Kamil and Erika's first sitt, so neither of us had any references. For that reason we arranged a video call and that was enough to feel the trust and how good people they are.
They took wonderful care of Moflete and also of our home (we found it impeccable). We were also able to share a day together, go out to dinner and it was incredible to be able to exchange our experiences in such a pleasant way.
If I had to sum them up in three adjectives:
HONEST, RESPONSIBLE AND GREAT PEOPLE.

I would definitely invite them back to our home.
Thank you guys for everything! We hope your stay was enjoyable.

Many thanks Kamil and Erika
It has been a real pleasure to meet this friendly couple and share some time with them. We kept in touch almost everyday while I was away and they made the most out of their stay, enjoying the tranquility and simplicity of the place. They fell in love with the cats and treated them with real good care, watered the plants and vegs, looked after the hens. It was not that easy due to the extreme heat but animals and plants were looked after with plenty of love. I am greatly thankful to Kamil and Erika ! I highly recommend them as housesitters and wish them the best in their new adventures.

This section is about past experiences, for offline house sitting.

We have quite a few experiences in Czech Republic - from our friends, family, and acquaintances. Hopefully, we will be able to expand our horizons with help of this community :)

Please let us share the experiences in detail so you know who we are & how we tend to approach things :)


3) 2019 14 Days in a big villa with two dogs
(AYRA - rhodes ridgeback, 6yo and JOVY -German Shorthaired Pointer), 5yo - the dogs were very kind and lovely, we took them for walks and played with them, and tried to make sure they enjoy our time with them.

On this house-sit, we also learned that we prefer to be around animals that are used to receiving proper care from their owners, as one of the dogs was a bit neglected in hygiene and upon asking the owner if we could wash him, we were told to let it be as is.
To be honest, we cuddled with him anyway (he was super friendly), but it would be much more pleasant if we could take 100% care of him. However, we chose to fully respect the wishes of their owner.

We even were able to solve the pool emergency via prompt communication with the owner - very proud of that and a partner-bonding thing for sure.

4) Repeated house-sit for one big cute dog (Riky - white swiss shepherd) who is not very well trained, he tends to be kind of shy/nervous around new people.
The key here is to respect the animal's boundaries and offer him freedom within what the owner deemed proper. Letting him roam the property from early morning until we go to sleep proved to be the right way to go.

After a few days, the nervous dog turns into a cuddly machine and all is great, but we learned that it's better to realize that pets can perceive the situation that you are a "stranger" in their own territory for some time. Best to let them process it and not force anything.


5) Recent cat-sit of older cat (Sissy - mix of British and street cat). The owners went on vacation but the building in which the cat resides was being reconstructed - a lot of noise and strange people, that's no place for 12yo cat lady.
We offered to instead take her for 14 days into our home, and we are very happy to say that it was a great experience for everyone. Kamil was living full-time with a cat for the first time in his life and now he is sure that we
will get a cat someday, after finding a good place to settle down. :)

6) We also took care of a cat from Erika's roommate in 2019 ( Pacin, 3yo, a mix of street cats) - when his owner went to a month-long retreat in India.

Very playful and oddly calm cat - it was our best experience to date.

7) 10 days looking after Erikas Grandmother's young cat (street mix, 1,5 yo) - great experience too, although the cat is not really used to interacting with other people, so it was required some patience to bond with the cat for play-times.

What can they bring to the assignment

We are very open & communicative, and diligent in all of our duties. We prefer to over-communicate (updates) until we find the happy medium for owner.
