About

We are a retired couple who have both raised families and animals, owned homes and worked hard (in health care) our entire lives. We have been house sitting since October of 2013, just after we retired. So far, we have been in England

Why we want to house sit

We love to travel but prefer to have a "home" were we can cook, putter in the garden and take long walks or bike rides while exploring the local community. We can also satisfy our love of animals by accepting positions which include pets.

Our experience

John and I have owned homes, renovated, repaired,and generally managed large properties. My home in the states is on 5 acres and is heated almost exclusively with wood. I can make a fire in my wood stove in 4 minutes! John owned horses
