We are a retired couple (late sixties) and up until March 2020 living and traveling on our small sail boat. When on land we enjoy house sitting. We have owned all our homes(thirty five years)in England and in Canada and taken excellent care of them and our gardens. We have owned and loved dogs,cats, rabbits, turtles, hamsters, gerbils, mice and are always happy to consider other pets. We are non smokers, able drivers and responsible.

We cherish slow travelling and exploring new communities and feel you can get much more of a sense of a place by experiencing it as a local would. But mostly we welcome the chance to spend some quality time with animals. For us the house sitting is a win-win as the one thing we really missed in our sailing lifestyle was having some fur babies to love resulting in lots of pent up cuddles we wanted to share :-). The pleasure we receive from giving service and sharing trust is an unexpected and treasured reward and in March 2020, after 14 years on our boat, we sold the boat so that we could continue house sitting and enjoy caring for pets full time. Covid has clipped our wings but only temporarily and as soon it is safe to do so we will be actively searching for pets to love and care for

As previous homeowners in both Canada and England we are very familiar with home and garden care and maintenance. We have been do-it-yourselfers for all our married life and as a result can tackle most jobs. Living for 14 years on our small sailboat we are used to handling off-the-grid systems. We have experience with garden maintenance and vegetable growing having managed our own for many years. Through house sitting we have been able to also experience and enjoy caring for farm animals and pet birds. Although we have been house sitting since 2008 we have in later years added to our qualifications by completing and graduating from the House Sitting Academy and graduating from the Dog Leadership for House Sitters course.

We always welcome an interview on Skype -internet willing - or an in-person get together if we are in your neighbourhood

No rating Liz was a lifesaver! Short notice, yet she was able to be flexible on my return. My dogs were more calm than I have ever seen them upon my return. The house was left clean and she even changed the bedding. Liz sent photos everyday and was detail oriented in following their routine. I would highly recommend Liz and Chris as house and dog sitters! Thank you!

No rating We are so pleased with Liz and Chris's stay at our home. Not only did they take a great care of my pup, but Liz sent me the loveliest updates daily that I never had to worry. And to top it all off, they left the house clean and even washed the bedding and towels! Highly recommend and would certainly use them again.
CANDI ( Florida, Mar 2019 - 1 week 1 day) From House Sitters America
No rating We are so grateful that Liz was available for a sit when we placed an ad for a 'short notice' trip. Additionally, Liz was flexible about the length of our travel when we needed a couple of extra days. The best part of meeting Liz was watching her with our kittens. She loves animals and it shows. We received photos almost daily with notes about their antics. The stress and concern over leaving our pets, who are still babies, was nonexistent, Liz was conscientious about the house; everything ... MORE
DEBORAH ( Florida, Jan 2019 - 3 days) From House Sitters America
No rating We were very blessed to have connected with Liz and Chris. They put our minds at rest immediately with their attention to detail as we left instructions for them them to care for all our farm animals as well as our beloved pets. When we returned home, the house was immaculate, the sheep paddocks were completely clean and tidy and the dogs were just as we left them, healthy and happy. Our garden was still thriving under their care. I would recommend this couple any time to pet or house sit. ... MORE

No rating Being our first time getting our house and pet sitted by strangers, we felt a bit apprehensive. I set up a meeting with Chris and Liz and it was wonderful! My husband, Steve, could not make it on time to meet with them and they where kind enogh to come back the next day and made the same good impresion with him. During our time away, I received daily texts messages and emails from Liz updating me on the status our house after the wind storm and regarding our blind dog Sykora. The eye ... MORE
