We've been housesitting as long as we've been together - over 23 years! We have great respect for peoples' pets and property, and consider it an honor to be trusted to watch a home. Get in touch if you would like contact information for our referrals.
Hani & Andrew, Sonoma County, CA, 2018:
My family travels often and as soon as we make plans, we immediately contact AliSun and Tyler to care for our home as they have done on multiple occasions.
AliSun and Tyler are two of the kindest, most thoughtful, respectful, generous and trustworthy humans we know. We live in a remote area and they take the initiative to thoughtfully take care of things such as filling up our propane tank and stacking firewood (twice, they have stacked an entire cord, and every single stay, they have filled up our indoor supply by our wood stove).
They pay attention to the details: every whisk is back in its precise kitchen drawer, plants are healthier than we left them, and just about everything is better than when we left it.
We return to our home in immaculate condition, topped by sweet and delightful touches: a scented candle, a gift for our toddler, or completely refilled or replaced household supplies down to the handsoap throughout our house.
We recommend them wholeheartedly and highly. The only downside for us is that we don’t get to see them when we get back!
Mike & Lori, Santa Monica, CA, 2018:
Tyler and AliSun have taken care of our house several times in the past. There’s nothing like coming home to the house that’s clean and in order.
The house is one thing but our pets, we have three dogs and three cats, are another thing entirely. They all love Tyler and AliSun. The pets, for us, are like members of our family. It is so good to know that they are well taken care of while we are away from home. It’s not just feeding the pets. The dogs are walked. The cats are petted. The animals are LOVED.
I’m an avid gardener. My potted plants are always in good shape went we return home.
Lastly, Tyler and AliSun are good people right down to their core. We are happy to have them in our life.
Alison G.B., Ojai, CA, 2011:
Tyler and AliSun have lived in a rental house on our property for three years. They have been dream tenants. My husband travels a lot and I always have a sense of home, community and safety knowing that AliSun and Tyler are here.
They are generous with their love and time by constantly walking our dogs and helping us out with stuff around the land. They often check in with me to see if I need anything. I love having them here. I hope they remain here a very long time. I mean it.
AliSun and Tyler are a rare pleasure and would be a gift to anyone's home that they grace with their presence. They both lead creative lives and work at home. AliSun is an incredible artist. We have one of her paintings hanging in our home.
Tyler is some kind of computer wiz and has a socially conscious and informative website that is an amazing resource for our town and community.
They both have a manner about them that honors the positive in life. I also love the friends that they gather around them. They are easy to get to know and thoughtful in their inquiries about life. They enjoy meeting new people. We have a guest house next to their house and our guests always love getting to know them as a highlight of their visit with us.
I can't imagine getting into a disagreement with them. It is quite easy to sort anything out and if I need help in any way they always get right back to me and let me know if they can or not. I have no reservations at all, what so ever, in recommending this couple as house-sitters. They add to any experience they get involved with.
