We're There. We Care!


Property Presentation

Two decades of local and international assignments caring for apartments to remote cabins has equipped us with diverse property/animal-care skills.

A reputation for putting home-owners and pets at ease has rewarded us with many repeats.

Caring for conventional to quirky homes, minimalist to sumptuous laden dwellings. All have been memorable, all unique and all have taught us how special each owner's home is to them.

Maintaining properties as we find them whilst communicating clearly with absentee owners, including up to date photos of their home/pets, enhances their overall peace of mind.

Multiple repeat requests plus willing fresh references, word of mouth referrals and friendships gained, certainly keep us enthused.

Be it a short vacation or a lengthy overseas relocation you have in mind, we're well practised at stepping in to hold fort for all sit locations and duration.

Weekend cat-care in Vancouver; repeat years of acreage-care in Australia; seasonal fishing lodge-care in Scotland; repeat 1 year long high-altitude sit in Colorado; week-long golf course townhouse care in Arizona; repeat rural manor-care in Ireland; plus a multitude of other sit duration and locations, we've relished all and welcome the opportunity to match your particular needs.

Both pet lovers, active, fortunately never smoked and outdoor lovers to boot. Skilled at property maintenance, we're flexible and versatile through experience. Organised and tidy by nature.

A lifestyle choice of travel plus property/pet care, research and writing, since we hit the road in the nineties, has taught us to adapt to local needs wherever that be. Our own home (last seen in 2005) ticks over nicely under the care of trusted others.

Our slow moving nomadic lifestyle of assisting absentee home-owners allows us to sample countless communities and additional rich cultures as well as our own province backgrounds, MB & ON, plus the chance to catch up with family now dispersed across Canada and foreign shores. In short, we're right at home wherever we hang our hats.

Happy to assist you during your next trip away. Shout out your time-away requirements and we'll gladly respond addressing your needs.

Mag & Dónal :)

Don and Mag were the perfect set of house and pet sitters while we were away. The house looked better than we left it and I highly suspect they spoilt our dog more than normal. Would gladly have back again and would highly recommend to any host wanting reliable sitters.

Hey guys, What a lovely review! Tops off an already great assignment, to know we met your needs. Thanks, Mag & Don
Don and Maggie arrived beforehand to get to know my needs. This was so reassuring. We immediately had a good rapport and they greeted my cat as their own. When they arrived they had no dilemmas in settling in, and making me feel as though they would treat my home as their own. I received photos and emails regularly about life at home - such a small gesture that meant so much. I came home to a beautifully cared for home, with a cat slightly changed by the extra care and attention he'd received ... MORE

Don & Mag were the perfect sitters. The regular funny updates with brilliant photos of the two dogs was the perfect antidote for my concern about their care. I arrived home to a perfectly manicured lawn and even the long front drive had been mowed. It was a perfect treat to drive in. As I said, the perfect sitters and I have already asked them if they are free to house sit for my next holiday.

I would highly recommend these housesitters and would have them come back anytime.. Mag and Don were fantastic housesitters. They made it a priority to look after my cat and plants. The plants were growing so well when I returned. They also left the house very clean. I also appreciated how they kept me up to date along the way. Thanks Mag and Don. Was a pleasure.

Safe house!

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