I have had opportunities to watch houses and care for pets and have been fortunate to receive some kind words:

February- Mid March 2021
Jim and Linda saved the day for us house sitting our home at the beach in Baja Sur and taking care of two of our 6 dogs. Our home requires a LOT of daily and weekly upkeep as it also has two rentals on site. The list of to do’s was 3 pages long and Jim and Linda still took their own diligent notes on two occasions when we did a walk through prior to leaving and asked questions about things that we had not even thought of. Jim being fluent in espanol was a huge plus also when any workers had questions or major items needed repair. We were gone for 7 weeks and they were completely flexible on our return dates which took so much pressure off our return trip.
They sent us photos of our two dogs throughout their stay, who are our children, and took them to the beach almost daily which was more than we were ever able to do. I think our dogs were sad when we got home just a little. Our home was in even better shape than when we left it and handled getting a new locking system for our front gate that went out while we were gone.
Jim saved us again while on our trip when we needed some very important paperwork that was in Spanish scanned to our attorney as he was able to decipher what the documents were. We had been very reluctant to leave our home and dogs for quite a few reasons but having Jim and Linda there completely changed our comfort level and let us handle what we needed to in the US without one more added worry. Linda maintained our garden which is pretty large and the plants on our entire property which is extensive. Her knowledge as a landscape designer was a huge plus for this.
We would definitely use Jim and Linda again in a heartbeat and refer them to friends which we do not normally do. My husband and I would highly recommend them for a worry free housesit and they are just awesome people all around.

Jim has been one of my best guest. That’s not only because after 3 weeks he cleaned the apartment thoroughly and also took care of it as he was in his own home. Besides this, he is a really kind man. He is very interested about the languages and our basque culture which makes him have a very interesting conversations. I hope to see you again Jim, best wishes for you and your family and come back when you want to Basque Country! You`ll be always welcome! Gero arte eta besarkada bat!
