We are Mark & Maria, full time international house and pet sitters. We have been featured in the TrustedHouseSitters.com blog! Trusted HouseSitters is the world’s largest house & pet sitting network, and you can find our feature here: Mark & Maria on TrustedHouseSitters.com.
Here’s a little intro about us:
We are trustworthy, reliable, and genuinely caring. We will treat your home with the respect it deserves, and love and care for your pets as if they were our own.
We used to own our own house too, and have owned and loved a variety of pets over the years, so can easily place ourselves in the home & pet owners’ shoes and understand their concerns.
We have high standards of hygiene and general tidiness.
We are in our mid 40s and lead a healthy lifestyle – we don’t smoke, have never done drugs of any sort and only have the occasional (social) drink. Our biggest “vice” is chocolate!
We are both self-employed IT professionals working from our laptops.
We have no children or pets of our own, and as our jobs are location free, we enjoy the flexibility to travel where our fancy takes us.
We prefer peaceful environments to live and work in. However we are neighbour friendly and very gregarious when the opportunity calls.
We have travel insurance and personal liability cover via World Nomads
Becoming international house & pet sitters was not a decision we took lightly. But we love travelling, exploring new places, meeting people and experiencing life in different countries – so in March 2014 we sold, gifted and donated pretty much everything we owned in order to be free to move around more easily. It’s been a truly liberating experience! As we no longer have a permanent base, we are truly committed to making international house & pet sitting a long term way of life. So far, we are loving it and have no intention of stopping any time soon!
Please browse through our website to learn more about us and find out how we can be of service to you. If you like what you see and we sound like the kind of house & pet sitters that you would like to have looking after your home and extended family, do get in touch and let’s chat!
