We're Guus and Mariska, a Dutch couple (42 & 46 yrs), living in the Netherlands and part time in a small village in a secret wine-area in Germany (Saale-Unstrut). During the sunny months we're renovating our second home, an antique farmhouse (built in about 1800 and earlier) in a small village surrounded by nature. We like eco style and love to work with chalk paint, clay, wood etc. We're self reliant, easy going and tidy.

Housesitters!
Because of our dear cat Joepie, who passed away in the summer of 2015, after being with us over 20 years, we're still a bit sad and we miss him a lot. But the good thing is that we are now able to travel around the world, and we will be able to give our love to other pets. Maybe to your pets while you're away?

MORE ABOUT US

PR, marketing & publishing
Since 2002 we run a small PR / publishing / cultural projects agency and we make our own printed regional guides / books. We worked for many clients to help them with their PR or marketing projects such as building websites, copywriting, organizing events, designing corporate identities etc.. (VANDAAR.NET)

Vintage and antique furniture, art & interior styling
We buy, repair and sell vintage and antique furniture like art, original GDR East German furniture, French brocante furniture. And we do interior styling. (elisabethUNDjohannes.com)

Hospitality
But we've experience in cooking and hospitality, too (although that's already some years ago). We both worked as a waiter / waitress in restaurants in the Netherlands to earn money during our studies. And we organized cultural events (named Atelier Diner).

We did 'home & pet sitting' projects during the last years, in the Netherlands, France, Spain, Portugal and in Germany with a lot of pleasure. We took care of the house, the animals (mainly cats, dogs and chicken) and the garden and even did some maintenance work (repairing a leaky roof and painting some walls, for example) and looked after building projects while the owners were abroad. We enjoyed our stays a lot and we would love to be house & pet sitters in the future, short and long term!

Good to know is that all the house & pet owners asked us to come back afterwards to do another house & pet sit.

For example...

At the moment (the first 3 months of 2018) we're in Andausia for the third time (2016, 2017 & 2018) at the same place. We will take care of 2 cats (Boio & Migo), 6 chicken and a lovely, garden. This housesit wil take about 2,5 months.

December 2016 / januari 2017 we were in the Algarve in Portugal to take care of a hostel without guests.

During wintertime 2016 (feb, march) we were in the south of Spain, in Andalusia. We were taking care of six chicken (yes, every day fresh eggs and lot's of chicken-talk), a lovely cat named Migo and a house for 3,5 weeks.

In march 2016 we did a house sit in the south of France (Provence) for 2,5 weeks where we took care of 2 dogs, 2 cats and the house. We loved the walks with the two happy dogs and the cats were unforgettable sweet!

December & january 2015 we took care of a house and a very sweet cat in Lelystad, the Netherlands for 2 months.

In october 2015 we took care of a house and two lovely cats in the centre of Haarlem, the Netherlands for about 3 weeks.

We both love animals, gardening and nature a lot! We don't smoke. We take care of your place as if it is our own. That means that we, for example, like to keep our home / environment clean.

Some repair jobs?
We have experience in all kind of renovation work as we're renovating our own landhouse and we did some home decorating projects for other people. Most of the things that have to be done, we do it ourselves. Sometimes with the help of a professional. So if you have some things to be repaired or done, we maybe can help you. Just tell us what needs to be done and we can tell you if that is something we're able to help you with.

Good te know: we don't charge anything for housesitting jobs!

Hello!

We’re Guus and Mariska, a Dutch couple (42 & 46 yrs), living in the Netherlands and part time in a small village in a secret wine-area in Germany (Saale-Unstrut). During the sunny months we’re renovating our second home, an antique farmhouse (built in about 1800 and earlier) in a small village surrounded by nature. We like eco style and love to work with chalk paint, clay, wood etc. We’re self reliant, easy going and tidy.

Because of our dear cat Joepie, who passed away in the summer of 2015, after being with us over 20 years, we’re still a bit sad and we miss him a lot. But the good thing is that we are now able to travel around the world, and we will be able to give our love to other pets. Maybe to your pets while you’re away?

Hospitality
But we’ve experience in cooking and hospitality, too (although that’s already some years ago). We both worked as a waiter / waitress in restaurants in the Netherlands to earn money during our studies. And we organized cultural events (named Atelier Diner).

Why we want to housesit
As we don’t like pets to be in an animal shelter, we would love to take care of your loved ones while you’re away. And we will take care of your home, plants and garden too, of course!
It’s so interesting to notice that every ‘living being’ has it’s own character and way of communicating. And how good it is to notice that it only takes a day or two to become best friends.

Our experience
We did ‘home & pet sitting’ projects during the last years, in the Netherlands, France, Spain, Portugal and in Germany with a lot of pleasure. We took care of the house, the animals (mainly cats, dogs and chicken) and the garden and even did some maintenance work (repairing a leaky roof and painting some walls, for example) and looked after building projects while the owners were abroad.
