About Us:

I'm an older dad with a wonderful wife, Yafei, and a fantastic five-year-old daughter. Joy. We all love animals, travel and the outdoors. My favorite pastimes are hiking, camping, bridge and astronomy. I grew up in the English countryside and have always had animals, particularly cats.

Why we want to house sit:

We're now entering an exciting phase of our life where we can be with our young daughter on a full-time basis. We've both had successful careers, now it's time for a change. We plan to travel extensively in the USA and overseas. We enjoy experiencing new places and love being around animals; what better way to do than with housesitting.

Our experience:

We have already undertaken many housesits, primarily through TrustedHousesitters.com, but also for friends and family. In addition, we have also stayed in a number of Airbnb's and have glowing reviews from our Airbnb Hosts. I have experience of looking after dogs, cats, birds, small furballs and fish, but love all types of animals. We are very practical and can deal with any situation life throws at us. We are experienced campers; Joy's first trip was at just eleven weeks.

Gary, Yafei and Joy sat for us for a week, giving us a relaxed time away. Nothing was a problem to them with Gary picked up a bit of slack we had not identified before leaving. Our home was left in great order, and all the animals were relaxed and settled when we got home. Excellent communication. :)
