House sitter in Corte Madera, California

My husband & I are professors who just retired early to relocate to Marin County (I grew up in SF and Marin). We are responsible non-smokers who love animals. We've always had pets (cats, dogs & fish as adults and hamsters, rabbits, chickens, & a horse growing up). We are available for live-in House Sitting and live-in pet sitting starting May 12, 2021. We are vaccinated, COVID-19 conscious, & will treat your home and pet with the care we give our own home/pet.
More on us: I enjoy caring for plants and gardening (I worked part-time in plant stores while in college). My husband is great at addressing unexpected minor household glitches (though knows his limits/when to call a professional). We both enjoy travel, hiking, bicycling, and reading. Between the two of us, we speak French, Spanish, and Indonesian fluently, with some Italian (we taught in Rome for a year), so can talk to your pet in those languages. We've had a lot of experience caring for friends' homes and pets and exchanging homes (& pet/plant care) via sabbatical homes. For more info about our professional lives, see our web pages. My profile can be found under the Dept of Anthropology at Loyola University Chicago (see Kathleen A. under emeritus faculty). My husband, Peter Sa...'s faculty profile can be found on the Dept of Political Science web page at the same university).
