Who We Are


Our names are Sean and Katharine. We’re a digital nomad couple who’ve been slow traveling since May 2012 and housesitting full-time since May 2013. Until July 2018 we traveled by car in our 1998 Fiat Punto, topped with a roof box, which carried us throughout Europe, as far south as Athens and as far east as the Bulgarian Black Sea coast. We then replaced our ’98 Fiat Punto with a 2003 model, now topped with the same roof box that we began our travels with. Sean’s a Massachusetts native with dual US-UK citizenship, while Katharine’s half-Scottish and half-Greek.

Our slow travels have taken us to and through 20+ European countries, and we’ve lived for extended periods of time in Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Bulgaria, Greece and Austria, as well as many different parts of Britain.

What We Do

what you can expect from us as housesitters

Excellent Animal & House Care

We’re a conscientious, creative and hardworking couple who will love your animals and take excellent care of your home. If you have dogs, we will ensure they get lots of walks and exercise, including, and depending on the dog, chasing sticks and balls, catching frisbees, and swimming if there’s a nearby river or sea. If you have cats, we’ll take our cue from them, snuggling them on our laps or giving them the space they need. If you have chickens, we’ll happily collect their eggs every day and clean out the hen house regularly.

As well as caring for your animals, we can drive your car if you’d like it to be driven and look after your swimming pool if you have one.

We’re always careful and considerate of the homes we look after, aware that we’re living in another person’s space, and will ensure it’s clean and tidy for your return. Prior to our current nomadic life, we lived in a beautifully restored 17th-century maisonette in Lewes, England which we kept immaculate — and we bring that same level of care to each and every house we look after.

As we work online, we naturally spend a lot of time at home, which is ideal for your animals, as well as being a security presence for your house. When we need some downtime from working on our business, we enjoy exploring our surroundings and getting to know the area as well as possible. We treasure the experience of living like locals and having the opportunity to explore the nooks and crannies of wherever we happen to be.

Our Fees

Our fees are calculated on a housesit-by-housesit basis and are dependent on a variety of factors. Once you’ve sent us some basic details, we’ll arrange to have a video call with you so we can begin to get to know one another, clarify the particulars, and ask relevant questions of one another. We don’t discuss fees during the initial call but will confirm them, via email, after we’ve talked.
