Hi, we are a Dutch - French/ Canadian married and semi-retired couple.
Ed - born and raised in the Netherlands near the North Sea beach. Growing up in the middle of the flower fields created a love for flowers, plants and gave him green fingers.
Love the outdoors and the beach.
Studied Hotel and catering management in Amsterdam.
At age 21 the world was calling, and he traveled to the Dutch Caribbean Island of St. Maarten never knowing he would stay for 7 years and meet the love of his life, Laurence, 26 years together and still going strong.
Laurence - born and raised in Montreal.
Montreal, the metropolis of French-speaking Canada.
Laurence graduated from the University of Montreal in Industrial Relations.
After years of 5-month winters and snow, she decided to move to St. Maarten.
It took one of the strongest hurricanes in Caribbean history to bring Ed and Laurence together but since 1995 they have been together and lived in many different places.
1. ST. Maarten - Dutch Caribbean
2. Vancouver BC - Canada
3. Amsterdam - The Netherlands
4. Marrakech - Morocco
5. Gili Meno, Bali - Indonesia
6. Dubai - United Arab Emirates
They adopted their first dog, Boefie, in 1995 in St. Maarten.
Boefie stayed with them for eleven years and collected a fair number of air miles, traveling from St. Maarten to Canada and years later from Canada to Amsterdam.
It took years to get over the loss of their beloved dog; Boefie.
Due to a large amount of traveling and living in a climate (Dubai) unsuitable for dogs, they decided to share their love with other people's animals and picked up house/pet sitting and estate management again.
House sitting is combining our love of travel and caring for animals. Ensuring peace of mind to owners in leaving their homes and pets in capable, loving hands.
Over the years, we have looked after all kinds of animals; young, old, sick, and demanding.
Every animal comes with its own needs and treatments.
We are used to following strict requirements: administering medication, vet visits, cooking specific meals, making skype calls with owners so they can talk to their pets, etc.
As former dog owners, we understand that only the best is good enough for your beloved animal and we are committed to delivering this care and giving our love.
Your house is your sacred place and we will treat it as such.
We have ample experience in gardening and maintenance, looking after estates, and dealing with staff, caretakers, and maintenance companies.
We started housesitting with THS in August 2022 and have been on numerous sits in Europe, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, and France.
We are responsible, dedicated, and caring housesitters who will never jeopardize the care of your beloved pets and home.
