See that amazing photo in the banner?  We actually lived there for two months for free!  The owners of this tiny eco-resort wanted to visit family in the US and needed help watching over it while they were closed for the off-season.  It was the experience of a lifetime!

We can’t wait to tell you about this and our other adventures in housesitting.  People are always asking us how we got involved in the first place.  Happy to share that knowledge too.  It is all coming soon!

This all started for us in November 2015, when we sold our home of twenty years and our sailboat of eight years.  We bought a new boat but it would not be ready for a year.  We thought about renting a place, but we wanted to travel!  And we had a new boat to pay for.  House sitting seemed like a perfect solution – an even exchange of lodging in return for home and pet care.  So far we have completed six house sits and we have five more scheduled.
