Responsible couple will take care of your home and pets


A married couple, we are parents of two grown children and four time grandparents. When not on the road, we live in our own home located just west of Portland, Oregon USA. We are a professional couple, "retired" from our corporate job.. In our spare time we garden, bike ride, walk, read and occasionally pet sit for friends and neighbors.

We thoroughly enjoy traveling to and living in different places, meeting new people, experiencing the scenic beauty and culture of each locale. Over the years we've visited Morocco, New Zealand, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, China, France, Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and Australia. Our favorite travel mode is slow - going somewhere and settling in to enjoy the local customs. Nothing gets you into local culture faster than walking the dog in your adopted neighborhood!

We've owned and maintained our own home since 1985. When raising our children, we hosted many animals in our home while their families went off on vacation. Since 2010, we have completed 25 house / pet sit assignments: two in Mexico, fourteen in Australia, four in New Zealand, one in France, one on Norfolk Island and three in the USA.

Our next adventure will start in Oct-2019 with 4 housesits in New Zealand. We're now looking for opportunities in Australia for 25-Jan thru 15-Mar 2020.

No rating How lucky was I to have two lovely people to mind my house and dog for 3 weeks. Seeing they did not know the South coast area of N.S.W. I loaned them my van to explore the area and go on some walks along the coastline which they really enjoyed. I have no hesitation in recommending Mike and Sue in fact I hope to get them back sometime next year. Phone No 0429042787 if you wish confirmation.

We were delighted with the exceptional care of both Tipsy and our home by Mike and Sue. Coming back to a happy content pet and a spotless house was bliss. Communication was excellent as was their understanding and handling of our shy cat whom in turn quickly became their friend. . Mike and Sue are highly rated by us, for their care of Tips and our humble abode.

Mike and Sue stayed for a weekend at my house to look after Tammy and keep my newly planted seedlings alive, while I had a brief local trip away. It was a pleasure meeting them and having them stay. My house was spotless when I returned, with beds made, washing done, etc and Tammy clearly well looked after. I really appreciated their thoughtful communication both prior to and after their stay and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wanting caring housesitters.

No rating Mike and Sue, house sat for us for an extended period looking after our menagerie of goldfish, 2 cats, 5 chickens and various wild birds that frequent our backyard. We were delighted to find everything in order on our return and all animals alive and happy. We considered ourselves very lucky to have them housesit for us and wish them well in future house sits.
PATSY (Eastwood NSW, Dec 2017 - 2 months 1 week)
No rating Michael and Sue took fantastic care of both our house and garden. They've named the birds that visit our garden, and our fish are thriving after their care. These experienced housesitters made the transition home seem as though we'd never left! Food that was there when we left had been replaced with the exact same product/brand, and the house was filled with flowers! They'll take great care of your home and garden should you entrust them with the task. We thoroughly recommend these ... MORE

No rating We couldn't have wished for better house sitters than Mike and Sue. They took excellent care of our "special needs" rescue dog, as well as ensuring that our house, garden and pool were in tip top condition when we returned after nearly 7 weeks away. We recommend them very highly.
