Reliable, responsible and mature

I am an older, responsible, reliable man looking for housesitting assignments anywhere in the continental USA. Recently retired, looking to explore and experience.
I am also neat, quiet, organized, non-smoker, social drinker.

Thank you.

I will surely regret divulging this review as it may render Jan forever unavailable to return! He was hands down the best cat/fish/plants/house sitter we've ever had. While we were on a stressful and emotionally exhausting trip where things seemed to go from bad to worse, the one thing we never had to spend a moment worrying about was our four cats back home. Coming back to a peaceful and immaculate house was a godsend. Jan, please come back anytime!

No rating Jan cared for my home and cats for 9 weeks. He showed me that he would be a responsible sitter through several communications prior to his arrival. On the day he moved into my home my 10 year old cat had to be seen by the Vet for some acute health issues. Jan came with us to the appointment and was very attentive to what went on there. He took on the care tasks and was very diligent about making sure that the cat was well cared for during my absence. He responded to email requests with ... MORE

No rating This was our first experience having a house sitter come stay with our three cats and to watch over the place. Jan put my anxiety to rest by communicating on a timely bases, talking via Facetime, texting, email and providing a couple of referrals that I spoke with. We left on the 5th (neighbor took care of cats) and Jan came on the 8th. We met in person on the day we returned. I walked into the house and asked if I had left it this clean. Thanks Jan, I would enjoy having you back in the ... MORE

No rating Jan stayed in our house with our cat for one month and could not have been more attentive, neat and kind. He left our house immaculately clean and our cat completely spoiled. I'm surprised she didn't pack her kitty suitcase and leave with him. Jan is a true gentlemen and I enjoyed knowing him. You could not have a lovelier person watching your home and pets.
BILLY ( New Mexico, May 2017 - 1 week 6 days)
No rating Jan stayed in my house for two weeks and it is a pleasure to endorse him as House Sitter. He is exceptionally considerate, and, as housesitter or houseguest, exhibits great sensitivity and adaptability to the individual peculiarities of a home situation. My usually neurotic and mistrustful cat got along fine with him and was well cared for. I didn't have to worry about anything. Also, communication with Jan was easy and clear - no mysteries or confusions on his end. This experience, my first ... MORE

No rating If you're considering Jan as a house sitter, then do yourself a favor and book him right now. This was our first experience utilizing a house sitter and frankly, you have a make a leap of faith when allowing someone to come into your house for 4 months and take care of your home and pets. I'm so happy to report that our faith was completely justified. Jan would update us periodically as to our two cats and the weather in general. He was very reliable and any worry that we might have initially ... MORE
SCOTT ( New York, Dec 2016 - 3 months)
No rating Jan did a great job housesitting for us. We were gone for three weeks and returned to a clean,well maintained house and two well cared for and pampered cats. Jan even prepared dinner for us the evening we came home! He gets our highest endorsement and recommendation for future housesitting opportunities.
ALAN ( Minnesota, Oct 2016 - 3 weeks)
No rating We felt very fortunate to have found Jan. He is very pleasant to deal with. He kept us posted with updates on the cat and the garden, bills that came in the mail and so on. After 6 weeks away we returned to a clean home, lush plants, happy cat and a hot dinner. We would recommend Jan to anyone.
ALEXANDRA ( New Jersey, Aug 2016 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating Jan stayed in our house for nearly 5 weeks and did a fine job. We returned to find our house in order and cleaner than we had left it. The plants and cats had been tended to as instructed. He was agreeable and reliable. We felt secure knowing he was watching our house.
