About Jon & Elena
We've both lived long-term in California and Hawaii. Two beautiful places we love, however we still love exploring new places. For the last several years we've been continuously traveling while still operating each of our businesses remotely. Jon owns a web development agency and Elena owns a subscription box business.
Over the last few years we've mostly opted for staying in Airbnb's, however we've also readily provided long term house sitting for friends in need of someone caring for their pets, plants, pools, pipes (from freezing).
We're both in our 40s and we've slowed down the pace of our travels a lot over the last decade. We've gone from spending a couple weeks somewhere, to spending a month or more each place we go. We both really do work a lot from where ever we are, taking evenings to explore the local food and weekends to exploration of local sites.

Jon & Elena have taken excellent care of our home and dogs for extended periods of time on two occasions.
Not once did we worry about the safety and wellbeing of our dogs or the security and condition of our home. They took care of the home and dogs as if all were their own. Our dogs absolutely adore them and would go home with them if they could, I’m sure!
They handled any situation that came up just as we would have done ourselves (pool maintenance, yard maintenance, dog issues, etc).
I would absolutely recommend Jon & Elena as house/pet sitters with total confidence, as they are responsible, mature, smart, self-sufficient and were always willing to take on unexpected issues if they arose without panicking and needing to concern us with the details that we obviously couldn’t deal with from afar.
We have an older home that has issues from time to time and Jon & Elena always took everything in stride and we trust them without condition.
Our home and dogs were always in the best of hands with Jon and Elena and we plan to continue to rely on them for future house/pet sitting needs for as long as they are willing!
