Experienced house/pet sitter




Thank you for reading our profile.

My husband and I are world travellers and experienced house sitters. We are an active, retired but energetic couple. For example, when we were in our 50's/60's, we bicycled across the U.S. from S.F. to Boston. Being on a long distance bike trip, you have to be organized and tidy to pack up efficiently and leave the campsites as found. We will do the same for your home. You can leave worry-free with us in your house.

We both love cats and dogs. We have had them as personal pets in the past. We will walk, fed and medicate as directed.

So far, we have done 17 housesit duties for our friends and House Sitters America, which included cats, dogs, chickens and hummingbirds:

two in Australia (90 days to 7 weeks)
Thirteen in California ( 4 days to 5 weeks)
Oregon (3 days)
Washington (3 weeks)

We enjoy traveling to new cities. Having lived and worked abroad, we are adaptable, flexible and friendly.

We are non-smokers, no drugs.

I have a background in emergency room nursing.

We are Covid negative, fully vaccinated, including booster shot.

References available on request and F.B.I. background check cleared. I am only mentioning the F.B.I. checks because we had to get them anyway for a travel visa.

We just got home from our trip today and found our two mini poodles are healthy and happy! Barbara and Mac did a great job take care of them and our puppies became very attached to them. During our trip, Barbara sent us updates every day with a group of cute photos. They take them for walks and play their favorite games. Barbara even help deadheading the flowers in our garden and our house is clean as well. We are very happy with their service and appreciate their love and care for our two fur ... MORE

Barbara and Mac gave excellent care to my cats and garden. They left my home spotless. I would recommend them 100% and hope they will return to house/pet sit for me in the future. Thank you so much.

No rating Barbara and Mac were fantastic. They were great communicators while organizing the house sit and made us feel comfortable from the start. The house and our garden was well looked after and very clean when we came back. I can definitively recommend them without any hesitation.

No rating Barbara and Mac were fantastic house sitters. We came back home to house that was cleaner than we left it with a bed ready for sleep. The plants and our kitty Lulu were well taken care of. I was happy that they enjoyed their stay and would welcome them back as housesitters without any reservations. Thanks Barbara and Mac!!!
