About

We are a responsible, honest, happy and healthy retired couple of English / Canadian background with a flexible schedule and the time to realize a long standing dream for travel and adventure. We are non-smokers who love our pets.

Why we want to house sit

House sitting would afford us the opportunity to travel and discover new surroundings, people and cultures. Looking after a local property would make us feel less like tourists and more like locals.

Our experience

Irene and I have enjoyed owning and caring for homes and pets in different areas of Canada. We both have experienced travel in Europe and earlier in his 30 year military career Mel was stationed across Canada and spent 13 years in Germany
