We provide Personalized Service
We cater to your needs as much as we can. We're open
to taking care of a number of things that you would take care of,
if you were still home. If you have something you wish you could
be home to take care of, ask us. We can probably handle it for you
while you are away.
This relieves pressure, worry and stress which naturally
occurs when making plans to go away for a long period (whether for
fun or for work).
Generally, we can accomodate flexible start and end
times for a housesit. Even if we have another commitment that doesn't
end for a week or two after yours starts, one of us can stay to
finish the current sit, while the other of us begins your sit.
(*We can often be available for one of us to
arrive at your home for a housesit, even a few weeks before
our current housesit is complete. We are happy to do this to
accomodate your schedule. However, because of the costs involved
with housesitting two homes at once, we can only pay utilities
at both homes for a maximum of 5 days overlap. We will pay utilities
for your home beginning 5 days before our current housesit ends.)
We have everything we need. If you want to take your
blender with you, no problem. We have a blender, tea towels, kitchen
utensils. Pack, considering your needs, and we will provide for
ourselves after you have gone.
We've been homeowners ourselves for years, raised three kids, have
some money in the bank, and a reliable income. We also have a number
of references to prove we are dependable people who you can rely
on, and enjoy your travels. Check out our
We have worked with www.homerent.ca
in providing temporary furnished housing to a large client of theirs.
We have worked with www.mypahss.com,
My Pet and Housesitting Service. This gave us great opportunities
to test our skills to comfortably care for other people's homes,
pets, and minor emergencies while owners were away.
We have housesat since 2003, so we have references.
Also, if you've never had a live-in housesitter, we can give you
practical tips about how to proceed.
We can be inside your home most hours of the day
Because each of us works a modified schedule, and
one of us works part-time from home, at least one of us is usually
home at any given time, making your home look occupied for the maximum
number of hours each day.
We keep good records
Keeping track of how much we owe for utilities and
how much we ask to be reimbursed for expenses (which are usually
very little) is important.
