About this sitter

We’re a couple of old soul artists, 40 and 38 times around the sun so far. Christine is a writer, Gabe is a musician; our business powers combine into Kitestring Studio, a web development company. Our housesitting and travel CVs are many pages long. We’re looking for a safe, cozy place to reside while genuinely caring for the home, animals, neighbors, and surrounds. We're the type of people who rescue worms and snails from the walkway, and give water to dehydrated honeybees.

Why they want to house sit

We house-sit to fill the need with quality care, and help our fellow neighbors around the world. As travelers, we prefer to live like locals and avoid the noise of tourist traps. Instead of bouncing from place to place, we want to fully experience a neighborhood: to immerse ourselves within, better understand, and appreciate the local culture.

Backgrounds:
Christine was raised by three generations of wanderlusts who taught her to appreciate living out of a suitcase. Her travels often doubled as work with various theatre companies and performing at international fringe festivals.
Gabe has mostly traveled with family members to remote and populous regions, and in recent years has enjoyed solo adventures to better connect with people and places.

Their experience

We have decades of experience as a long-term and short-term house-sitters and pet-sitters in the U.S. and Australia, long before we knew about these house-sit networking websites.

Individually and as a team, we've cared for children, indoor plants, outdoor gardens, fish, goats, chickens, dogs, and cats.

Our extensive positive references don't yet exist online. We're happy to provide them upon request.

Regarding background checks:
We're proud to say our records are spotless. We hesitate to issue a check via this website only out of caution for distributing personal information without knowing the third party companies.
Christine has professionally worked with children since 2002, and she has passed every strict annual criminal background check. Nothing has changed or affected those records.
