  1. Hi Artsnob ~ thank you for the note. Send me an e-mail, and we can confer about your house-sitting needs. Cheers!
  2. Hi everyone, Does anyone need house-sitting from Sept. 28, 2018 to the end of the year (possibly longer)? If so, please consider our services. We are available for medium- to long-term housesitting (3 weeks to 3 months). We love this community. We are two mature professionals who house-sit and pet-sit full-time. We love house-sitting as we carry on our online careers (we aren't yet retired). I'm Charles Doersch (60), a professor with the University of Colorado teaching online courses, and my partner is Sean McCollum (55), a professional education writer for children (more than 45 books published) with ongoing contracts with major US publishers. Since 2013, we have racked up experience with more than 25 sits in Mexico, England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Italy, Turkey, Panama, the Dominican Republic, the US Virgin Islands, and the United States. Our Mexico experience includes sits in Jalisco, Michoacán, Sinaloa, and Guanajuato. Our Spanish is quite serviceable and getting better. 🙂 We have comprehensive experience with caring for pets and livestock -- they come to rely on us and trust us very quickly. You can check out our credentials (with references) at HouseSitMexico.com, TrustedHousesitters.com, and HouseCarers.com. We do not charge for house-sitting. It is our privilege and pleasure to take care of lovely homes and estates, and beloved companion animals. **However, please don't hesitate to contact us directly if you're at all interested in knowing more about us and our availability. BEST is contacting us by e-mail Charles.Doersch@gmail.com. Hope we can be of service.

  6. Just for some perspective regarding air pollution in Mexico: The Guardian ten days ago reported that according to the World Health Organization, more people die per capita in the UK from air pollution than do in Mexico. In fact, the mortality rate from air pollution in the UK is quite a bit higher than the homicide rate in Mexico. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/may/17/air-pollution-kills-more-people-in-the-uk-than-in-sweden-us-and-mexico Looking forward to the rains, in any case!
  7. "Moonhill" -- I think you did end up sending us a note directly? Just checking in. Cheers, Charles

We adore the Lakeside area, where we house-sat and pet-sat in 2015/2016. We've been away in other parts of Mexico, in Panama, and then in North America and Spain. We are returning to Mexico in March, and will be house-sitting at the Racquet Club in September. Does anyone need house-sitting from about March 8-31, or in October-November?

  11. Hi everyone, We are still available for house-sitting / pet-sitting between Nov. 30 - Dec 4. Otherwise, we're booked up until the first week of February. Cheers, Charles & Sean
  12. Woops -- sorry for the misunderstanding on the dates. I meant that I'd changed the dates in the posting itself. We are available Nov 12. - Dec. 5. We have a couple of shorter-term sittings we're doing in November, but because there are two of us -- and because it can be difficult to get house-sitting dates to match up -- we can overlap the appointments, one of us staying in one place and the other in the second, as necessary. Cheers!
  13. Hi everyone. Don't know how to update this posting -- but our availability dates have changed since we first posted online. The ones below are up-to-date now. Cheers, Charles & Sean
