Even though we do not charge, many homeowners have been nice enough to leave us something to help with travel, etc., but it is not required, albeit appreciated.
We do expect the homeowners to leave money for incidentals, like pet treats, etc. The best way to do that is with a prepaid credit card and have the sitters turn in the receipts and the card at the end of the sit.

We are very healthy retirees doing full-time house-sitting with 73+ house sits over the past 7yrs. around the world. We work through several house-sitting websites.
We met in Australia and were married on Georgie's parent's sheep farm in New Zealand in Dec.1969. We lived in Darwin, Australia for a year before moving back to Ted's home in Texas where Ted worked for a commercial kitchen designer & stainless steel fabricator.

Ted also ran a branch office for a commercial/industrial sales rep. company covering the northern half of Wisconsin & the Michigan Upper Peninsula for the next 30 years before retiring. Ted is also a US Navy veteran. We are non-smokers.
We also pastored a small, non-denominational Christian church until stepping down to travel.
We have 3 sons and 9 grandkids.

We get most of our house sits from other websites so we have a personal website that gives a lot more information on us like expanded bio, family pictures, house-sit pictures & videos, more references YOU CAN ACTUALLY CONTACT, our travel/house sit schedule & maps, background checks, etc.
Please contact us for a link to our website.

and Georgie Nelson cared for our 177-year-old ranch from January 6 to May 30. They watched over 211 acres, three old houses, two horses and one house cat. They stuck with the position through 16 days of below-freezing temperatures, when the place and the animals needed special care. When we returned, the house looked great, On their own, because they thought it would be good for the place, they refinished a table, cleaned up a stained flagstone wall, and repotted many of my root-bound plants. ...

No rating Ted & Georgie were great sitters! They were warm and friendly, and took great care of both our pets and our house. I must say that the house was cleaner when we returned than when we left. We'd love to have them back again if they are ever available again.

No rating Ted and Georgie were great with our dog Lucy and kitty Kiera! They walked them and kept them brushed, well fed and loved! The house was very clean and linens clean! This was our first time using this website and I feel good knowing such qualified people are looking to do this kind of service!
