House Sitter in Oshawa

About Jon & Laurie After operating my own business for over thirty-five years, I retired in 2013. My wife worked as a stay-at-home Mom to raise our daughter and son. We now enjoy spending as much time as possible with our adult children and four grandchildren. For the past number of years, we have also been extensively involved in doing volunteer work. Some of this includes doing humanitarian work in Africa and also working with a Humanitarian Relief Organization here in Canada. Laurie and I love to travel and love meeting new friends. We are both non-smokers and fitness enthusiasts. Why we want to house sit We have been homeowners since we were married over thirty-eight years ago. While traveling, most of our accommodations have been in VRBO's, Bed and Breakfasts and Guest Homes. We understand the responsibilities associated with living under someone else's roof and will apply our high standards to fulfilling what is expected of us. With my background experience in property management, I am able to evaluate situations that may arise, and work to find a solution. Throughout our years of marriage, Laurie has taken great pride in meticulously maintaining the lawns and gardens (and inground pool) of our homes. We are a team. Our experience Both my wife and I are organized and committed to detail. We both have a strong work ethic and take pride in whatever responsibility we undertake. Laurie and I both grew up with a variety of pets. When our children were young, our rescue dog Thunder (see photos), became part of our family. Her days of terrorizing the neighbourhood squirrels and rabbits came to an end in the fall of 2004 when she succumbed to age-related complications. Laurie and I are both morning people. Pets accustomed to early morning walks and runs will love the routine we provide. We have done long-term house/pet sits in Florida and British Columbia - see references. I have the top level police clearance through the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and hold C CPR and Mental Health certifications. References: Jon and Laurie Stapley are a couple that any homeowner would be fortunate to have watch over their home and pets. They themselves keep an immaculate home and the surrounding yard is pristine! We are more than confident in recommending them. Don & MJ Mann We could NOT have picked better home and pet sitters than Jon and Laurie! From the moment we first met them on FaceTime, we knew we had met like-minded people. We picked them up at the airport and that fact was supported as they are kind and open and respectful individuals. When we returned from our month vacation in Europe, we found our home and our little dog in perfect condition! Additionally, there was a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a loving letter of appreciation and food in the fridge. These two people are simply THE BEST and we have no hesitation in recommending them for any other home sitting or pet sitting assignment. Thank you Jon and Laurie, thank you. Barbi & Jim Graham - West Vancouver, B.C. We arrived home to a beautiful clean house we cannot thank you enough. Stella looks amazingly healthy. My only regret is that I did not get to meet you before I left. Clive has not stopped telling me how much he enjoyed your company before he left. I am sitting here sipping the wonderful Pinot Grigio that you left in the fridge. I look forward to meeting you sometime in the future.
