About this sitter

Hello there! We're an adventurous and reliable Scottish-American duo currently calling Scottsdale, Arizona home base. However, our wanderlust knows no bounds as we embark on a journey to explore the world this year. As homeowners ourselves, we deeply understand the importance of caring for and respecting the sanctity of others' homes.

While we're open to short city stays, our hearts truly sing in tranquil and unique locales nestled amidst nature's embrace. With a passion for outdoor adventures, we seek housesits that offer access to scenic landscapes and thrilling outdoor activities. Fluent in English, we're always eager to immerse ourselves in new cultures and languages wherever our travels take us.

Although we adore animals, strong allergies limit our ability to provide traditional pet sitting services. Instead, we specialize in home and garden maintenance, ensuring your property remains in pristine condition while you're away. Whether it's tending to lush gardens, managing mail deliveries, or conducting thorough property inspections, rest assured, your home is in capable hands with us.

Please note: While we're unable to accommodate furry friends due to allergies, we're more than happy to care for aquatic life, reptiles, birds, and small, furless creatures. Your non-furry companions will receive the same love and attention as if they were our own!

Why they want to house sit

As we embark on our 'midlife break' or sabbatical in 2024/2025, house sitting emerges as the perfect avenue for us to embark on new adventures and immerse ourselves in diverse cultures around the globe. It's our chance to peel back the layers of a destination and truly 'live like locals,' fostering deeper connections with communities beyond the tourist trail.

What truly sets house sitting apart is its unparalleled flexibility, allowing us to curate travel experiences tailored to our unique preferences and lifestyle. Whether we qualify for a brief staycation by the sea or a prolonged exploration in your amazing home, We cherish the opportunity to tend to your home with the same care and attention we would give to that of a cherished friend or family member... a really good one.

We recognize that house sitting is rooted in trust, and we eagerly anticipate cultivating strong, trusting relationships with homeowners who entrust us with the care of their abodes.

Their experience

While we're new to the house sitting platform, our backgrounds in Property Management/Home Renovations (him) and Project Management/Communication (her) equip us with a strong foundation of skills and values that we bring to every house sitting opportunity.

Though we may not have formal house sitting experience, we've previously cared for the homes of family and friends with the same level of dedication and attention to detail. These experiences have instilled in us a deep sense of responsibility and a commitment to maintaining properties with care.

As newcomers to this platform, we understand the importance of building trust and credibility within the house sitting community. While we may not have a track record here just yet, we're eager to embark on this journey and demonstrate our reliability, integrity, and dedication to providing top-notch care for your home.

What can they bring to the assignment

1. Home Maintenance Excellence:
With years of homeownership and hands-on experience in home renovation, including a full renovation project we tackled ourselves, we understand the importance of meticulous home upkeep. From routine maintenance tasks to major renovations, we've honed our skills to ensure that every aspect of your property is well-cared for. For example, in our profile, you'll find a picture of our backyard in Arizona where we successfully planted, nurtured, and maintained a large hedge—a testament to our dedication even in challenging environments.

2. Clear Communication:
Transparency and open communication are paramount to a successful house sitting arrangement. We're committed to maintaining open lines of communication throughout our tenure, readily available to address any questions or concerns you may have. Whether you prefer daily photo updates or weekly check-ins, we're happy to accommodate your communication preferences to keep you informed and reassured about the well-being of your home.

3. Respect for Your Space:
We understand the significance of your home as your sanctuary, and we treat it with the same care and reverence as we would our own. You can trust us to uphold the highest standards of cleanliness, organization, and maintenance, ensuring that your space remains just as you left it—or even better—upon your return. We take pride in enhancing the beauty and functionality of your home, whether through meticulous upkeep or thoughtful improvements.
