BlueWorldNomads - Mature, kind, non-smoking couple

55, semi-retired

55, semi-retired

Diane is a farm-girl and Alex is a city-boy. We met, married and live in British Columbia, Canada, and are now a 50-something, adventurous, non-smoking couple. We have traveled both ways around the world together, managed a variety of hospitality and recreation businesses, owned and operated a popular guesthouse, and now are preparing to travel once again. We were owned by three amazing cats over the past 20 years, and they trained us to care for them purrfectly. As responsible and caring homeowners, we would treat your home and pets as our own.

We are homebodies who love to travel. House-sitting offers the perfect opportunity to travel while staying at home. As aspiring travel writers, we like to take time to explore an area, experience the culture and interact with locals. As homeowners, we miss the comfort of home while traveling and find comfort in looking after yours.

We know how much animals bring a home to life. Whether house cats or pet dogs, cows, pigs, hens or horses, we have always had animals as a part of our lives. There's nothing like living in a home with pets, and house sitting gives us the chance to enjoy the love and friendship of a furry friend, if only for a while!

Homeowners ourselves for 20 years, we are the DIY types who can tackle any and all jobs related to property renovation, repair and maintenance. We have experience and knowledge of landscaping, gardening, hot tub care, wood stoves, septic tanks, plumbing, electrical, carpentry...and so much more!

After several years of working in the hospitality industry, we bought a condo, rented it out, and went traveling. We decided in South Africa that we would open a guesthouse similar to the many "backpackers" in that country, We enjoyed the lifestyle of running a guesthouse which gave us a wealth of knowledge and experience in property management and guest experience. An opportunity then rose to purchase a beautiful home on an 10 acre property, where we spend our time mountain biking in the summer and skiing in winter.

We have done dozens of house and pet sits over several years, hopping between Canada, Mexico, Australia, Jamaica and Costa Rica. Our sits have ranged from four days to five months in length, and our pets and animals have ranged from llamas and chickens to a 5lb cat and two 100lb Australian Bulldogs - including several pets who have required special care, medication and vet visits.

We have all our required covid vaccines and adhere to strict cleaning and physical distancing protocols. As your house and / or pet sitters, you will have peace of mind knowing we will care for your home and pet(s) as if they were our own. We have traveled the world while others have looked after our home and pets, and we hope we can do the same for you.

Happy Travels!

Diane and Alex took wonderful care of our fur babies for almost 2 months. We were provided frequent updates on how they were doing (including pictures&videos) which was very comforting to know they were adjusting well (as the girls only knew us for the 1st 2 years of their lives). Household items were managed and we were kept well informed of any issues, resolutions, etc without having any worries. We came home to a very clean house, well maintained yard, a loaf of fresh bread. They also ... MORE
HELENE & PAUL ( British Columbia, Mar 2022 - 1 month 3 weeks)
No rating Alex and Diane are completely trustworthy and ideal house sitters. They cared for our home and our kitties like they were their own. We were thrilled to come home to happy content kitties, sharper knives and a clean environment. As our home has some complex systems like a hot tub and pellet stove, it was great that they felt completely competent and able to troubleshoot and keep them functioning. We intend to invite them to stay again.
LORRAINE AND ROB ( British Columbia, Nov 2018 - 4 weeks)
No rating Diane and Alex were wonderful housesitters while we were away for 7 weeks. They were very communicative, responsive, on time, and very caring of our home. Our little dog Frankie was well taken care of and received lots of lovin'. Our home was spotless when we returned and they even left behind a well stocked fridge of food so that we did not need to rush out to shop. We highly recommend them.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
