Introduction

Joe and I are mature and dependable. We are old trekking friends and have known each other over 15 years. I have had my own housecleaning business and he is a licensed contractor in the USA. We will take very good care of your house. I'm also an experienced pet sitter and can provide excellent personal and pet sitting references, from both the USA and the UK.

Why I want to housesit

This year Joe and I will lead 2 groups on the Camino Santiago in Spain. One group walks until June 22. The next begins mid-September. We are looking for a house-sit or pet-sit in a non-schengen country so we do not have to return to the USA between our treks.

What I bring to the assignment / relevant experience

We are both homeowners and have a lot of experience caring for a home. We also both love animals and will take great care of your furry person. We are young at heart, enjoy traveling, and look forward to putting your mind at ease while you're away.

    I have known both Annie and Joe for around 10 years, during which time they have stayed in my home on a number of visits to the UK. Whilst staying the house they have been respectful of the property, keeping it in good order. They are friendly and extremely well mannered, and they kept my home in impeccable condition througout all of their stays. It was a pleasure to have them in my home.

    I would happily recomend Annie and Joe to others, who can leave their homes in good care with the peace of mind that everything will be looked after whilst they are away. You would be leaving your home in capable and trustworthy hands, safe in the knowledge that you will return to your home exactcly as you left it.

    Annie Carvalho and Joe Walsh have been very helpful to us in the past when we needed someone to watch our house and cats. Each time they have taken care of our home, everything is clean, and organized. Annie has taken charge of some shelves and cupboards we had that were a mess, she didn't throw anything away since she didn't know what we would want to keep, but she was able to organize everything so we could find what we needed again- what a great thing to come home too. They go the extra mile to keep up on chores cleaning after themselves, but have also helped us with getting things caught up such as our laundry, and some yard work; weeding and trimming the hedges. They are very respectful of our belongings, nothing has been broken nor ever gone missing. Our cats were well fed, healthy and happy with Annie and Joe; after the first time they took care of our house, the next time they were over, the cats recognized them and sought them out for attention. Joe also did a great job on some repair work we needed - our shower wasn't working well and he was able to fix it, it was great to come home to a working shower once again. When we have Annie and Joe watch our home we never worry about how things will be when we return. Reliable, Respectful, Helpful They are!
