Hi everyone, We are two mature professionals who love to house-sit as we carry on our online careers. I'm Charles Doersch (58), a professor with the University of Colorado who currently teaches online courses from abroad, and my partner is Sean McCollum (52), a successful children's education writer with more than 40 books published, with ongoing contracts at National Geographic Kids, Teaching Tolerance, and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. We are house-sitting here in along the shores of Lake Chapala after spending the past year in the UK, Europe, the Middle East and East Asia house-sitting -- and we love this community (we started house-sitting and pet-sitting here August 1, and are now booked until Nov. 12 [new availability date since our last post on this site]. We'd love to continue housesitting here. If anyone needs house-sitting after Nov. 12, 2015 -- please consider us. You can check out our credentials (with references) at these hyperlinked sites HouseCarers.com, TrustedHousesitters.com and MindMyHouse.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 (--including horses). The housesitting sites I've linked above have plenty of information about us and our experience. **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 ... though you can also contact us by my US phone /text 1-940-604-1111. Cheers!
We've been sitting full time in Lake Chapala since 2013 and have many references. We're currently available from October 1st through November 15th. If you have any home or pet care needs during this time, please learn more about us and contact us via our website: http://www.housesittingbycycle.com/ Thank you!
Good morning all! I wanted to take a quick moment to introduce myself and offer my free services as a housesitter. I’m one half of a bilingual Mexican-Canadian couple. We live in Guadalajara, but we are looking to relocate lakeside in the near future. The big city is getting to be a bit too chaotic and we’d like less traffic and more hiking trails! Housesitting is the perfect way for us to get to know different areas of Jalisco before committing to purchasing our own home. During the holidays, we are normally found housesitting a large beach home in the bay of Chamela, but this year our scheduled housesit is undergoing major construction after being hit hard by Hurricane Patricia. As locals, we have managed situations ranging from escaped horses, flash flooding, power outages, snake and scorpion bites, and everything in between. We are also accustomed to dealing with everyday Mexican bureaucracy at CFE, Megacable, Zeta Gas, etc. Finally, we have a 4x4 off-road capable vehicle (we are “xtrailers”) and we’re not afraid off large or remote properties and the upkeep that they require. Each of us runs a telecommuting business and we work from home during the day. We also have a loving, well-behaved rescue dog that travels with us. He is well trained and personable, but he has also proven to be an effective "guard" dog in the past and alerted us when someone was trying to break in. If anyone is looking for short term or long term assistance, please let me know. We are happy to drive out to the lake (or elsewhere) to meet in person! And if anyone has any questions on matters pertaining to Guadalajara, please consider me a willing resource. Saludos! - Jo
