We are two very active grandparents who are staying in Whitefish from mid-October to mid-March to be with our family. We have been living in Australia for many years and housesitting there for the past year and love it! A mature, joyful couple, we are experienced at looking after homes and pets.
More about us: No smoking or , although we do enjoy a glass of wine with dinner now and then. We are both neat freaks and will look after your home as if it were our own. We have recently been renting our place on AirB&b so we know how to look after a home in a very personal and beauty-oriented way. We both love cats and dogs and also enjoy getting to know the land we're visiting. Jim lived in Colorado in the mountains for many years and is familiar with snow removal, fire wood and looking after pipes in winter.
Jim was in the restaurant business in Colorado for 13 years then opened a handyman/painting/cleaning business which he continued when he moved to Australia. He plays guitar, has acted in local drama groups and his most loved hobby is checking out musical stats of 60s and 70s groups, singers and songwriters.
Cindee is an ex-teacher, was married to a veterinarian and managed the business while gaining vast experience with all types of small animals. She later owned her own restaurant in the foothills of California. Upon moving to Australia she was a journalist for 10 years. She later joined Jim in his painting/cleaning endeavors. She loves to sew, write poetry and sing songs with Jim. And oh, yes - we both have been yoga instructors and still keep up our daily practice!
We thought we would also mention that we are open and willing to offer our experience and skills to help you accomplish handyman or gardening projects you may have been putting off. If it suits you, we can fill in our extra time by doing any handyman, painting or cleaning/organising, or gardening projects (beyond normal day-to-day tending) you may want done while you're away. With many years experience between us, it's a perfect way for you to have quality work done while you're on holiday and trust that your home is beautifully looked after. Our rates generally run in the $30ph/pp range and can be tailored to your needs. AND, we are happy to just enjoy your space, animals and plants.
We are happy to chat with you via phone or Skype or over a cup of coffee. We hope to visit with you soon!

Jim Ronchetti is trustworthy, reliable and honest. He and his partner Cindee have house sat for us for 2-3 week periods 5 times in the last 3 years. They cared for our kitty, our home and garden with the utmost reverence. I highly recommend them without hesitation.
