We are a couple who live a relatively nomadic lifestyle. We both teach English around the globe while taking care of people's pets and homes.
We signed up to Housesitters for the following reasons:
1. Despite our nomadic lifestyle, we are secret nesters who like to look after nests in lots of different places. Mark used to own his own property and perhaps secretly misses watering plants and doing some housework. Both he and Nate are foodies and love to have a nice kitchen to cook in.
2. We both love plants and animals... as perpetual nomads we really miss having pets of our own. Mark's cats now live with his ex and all the bunnies and rodents he had have long since passed on. We find ourselves checking on plants and animals that don't even belong to us. So your flowery or furry family members would be in safe hands.
3. We are extremely trustworthy, reliable and adaptable and seem to fit in wherever we are. In short, you won't find a happier, more considerate couple!
Over the last few years we've housesat for people in New Zealand, Australia and the UK, so please check out our endorsements from these places.
We also have a blog where you can read a little more about our unconventional lifestyle and pet-sitting adventures (contact us for the link)
NB: As teachers who work online, we need a good internet signal for reliable Skype calls during our sit, as well as a calm comfortable place to work from, so please bear this in mind if you request us to come and take care of your place and pets :-)
We look forward to hearing from you!
