Clean Conscientious Canadian Couple.
We are a free spirited, easy going, mature couple, married later in life 23 years now.
We are active, healthy, reliable, adaptable, trustworthy, experienced house sitters. We have completed 15 housesits since October 2017. A few I did partial time on my own if Jason worked. We/I LOVE housesitting.
We are both nature crazed outdoor enthusiasts, I am retired, young at heart. Jason, is semi retired, working in Ft. Mcmurray, AB, in NDT.
We live part-time on an island in the 1000 islands, Ontario, having owned our cottage since 2003. We understand the importance of home ownership and the responsibilities of owning a property.

We also have 3 years housesitting experience in Canmore, AB from 2010 to 2013. We took care of 2 cats, Smokey & Possum. What was originally to be a short term housesit, Sept to June turned into 3 years, returning to our island home for the summers.
Our housesit entailed minding the house, cats, gardens, mail & ran errands pertaining to the homeowners businesses.

We have references upon request, have stayed in over 20 airbnb with references about us for each I could provide to let you know more about us.

We love Canada!

Cheers Josephine and Jason Hewett

here is one reference from our house sit in Canmore Alberta from 2010 to 2013, more references as per request.

To whom this may concern,

The Hewett family has housesitted our furnished home in Canmore, Alberta for the past three years (2010-2013). Their responsibilities while housesitting included: payments for basic house costs, collecting our mail, taking care of our garden and pets. They have proven themselves to be outstanding housesitters throughout their stay. Our home has been maintained with the utmost care and respect and payments for the house expenses have always been diligent.
We highly recommend the Hewitts.

Josephine and Jason are the best housesitters anyone could ask for. They helped us house sit and pet sit for 3 weeks while we were away. They are helpful, friendly and communicative, caring and funny! They treated our 3 dogs with love and care, our doggies were pampered! I couldn't be happier to have found these two. :) Our home was well cared for, very clean when we came back (cleaner than when we left it!) and I love the little stone art that Josephine left behind during her stay.

Josephine & Jason were excellent housesitters! They took great care of our home, property and our young cat Chance. Trustworthy and reliable, I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a house/pet sitter.

No rating Josephine and Jason were great house/pet sitters. We would highly recommend them to any future hosts. They took great care of our 15 year old cairn terrier Roxy. They included her in all their exploring and gave her lots of love. The house was clean, the lawn mowed and they even cleaned our car. We could not have asked for better housesitters.
STEPHEN AND PATTI (Gibsons British Columbia, Sep 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating Josephine took care of our doodle Solo and our home in July 2018. I cannot express in just a few lines how much having Josephine as a house and pet sitter meant to me: first, Josie was gracious enough to come and meet us at our home when she was in Ottawa in May. As this was my first time with this type of experience, Josie was extremely understanding and in a matter of minutes wiped away any concerns that I had. She provided me with regular updates and photos via text msg while we were away. ... MORE
HELENE ( Quebec, Jul 2018 - 1 week 4 days)
No rating Josephine and Jason are outstanding house sitters. They are extremely caring and looked after our home and our Chili like if it was theirs. They house sitted twice for us and both times we came back to a super clean house and happy cat. They are genuine animal lovers, honest and caring people. We sure hope to see them again!
JULIE ( Alberta, Dec 2017 - 2 weeks)
