Experienced House-Sit Couple Care For Your Luxury Abode


Are you looking for the perfect couple to maintain above standard care of your luxury home? We are a house-sit couple who can do just that. And, we can cover some, none or all of your operating costs.

Is your vacation home for sale? A lived in home shows better than a vacant home and weekly renters aren't conducive to showings. Often we help the owner sell their vacation home by keeping it in showing condition while maintaining the premises and making the home accessible to short notice showings by the agent. 

We have a wide ranging house-sit skill-set including:


  • Attention to detail
  • Exceptional organization
  • Efficient and timely
  • Superior communication
  • Healthy, physically fit and capable
  • Pool, spa and hot tub/Jacuzzi chemistry and maintenance – both salt and fresh water
  • Grounds, lawn and garden maintenance (Jack is educated and experienced in horticulture)
  • Supervision and training of grounds and house staff, including recipes and meal presentation
  • Maintaining for-sale homes in showing condition – liaising with realtors and accommodating short notice viewings
  • Minor repairs, maintenance and scheduling technicians

Our nomadic lifestyle is not conducive to having our own furry family member. But, we’d be happy to take care of your beloved pets! 

Jack has 11 Canadian winters experience (Carrie 9) caring for international luxury vacation homes

 Whether you stay six weeks, six months or six years, always leave it better than you found it.”    Jim Rohn
“And they did! We first got to know Jack & Carrie three years ago when they were staying next door to us in Fiji and we soon became impressed with the way they took care of our friend’s villa. Then, when they looked after a friend’s home further down the coast for several months, we were even more impressed, so much so, that we decided that when we are away for any length of time from our Fiji home, that Jack & Carrie would be the first people we would call. Jack is the ultimate D.I.Y. man. He can fix anything and he enjoys doing it. They are very responsible, respectful and meticulous house guests, they love animals and know how to take care of them which was a real bonus for the two mutts who live on our property! We don’t make a practice of sharing our home with strangers – but Jack & Carrie are strangers no more and have become good friends. We so hope they will come back to us again later this year.” –  Ossey & Roni, Villa Owner, Fiji email:  Whether you stay six weeks, six months or six years, always leave it better than you found it.”    Jim Rohn 

Muskoka, Ontario


 “Jack and Carrie rented one of our vacation villas on the shores of Lake Joseph in the Muskoka Lakes region of Ontario, Canada from October 2016 through to October 2017 (they traveled from Oct. ’16 until April and resided until October ’17).  I could not have asked for better tenants.  They treated our villa as if it were their own.  At all times, they kept it in a clean and tidy condition and were very accommodating whenever an issue arose, such as the need to upgrade the gas line and internet signal.  Both are friendly, level-headed individuals who communicate well and get along with others, including resort staff and owners.  You won’t go wrong with them.”  —Horst Hueniken, Villa Owner, The Lake Joseph Club email: 




“Jack and Carrie recently rented one of our luxury vacation villas in St. Thomas U.S. Virgin Islands for over 5 months from October 16‘ to April 17‘ and it has been a very positive experience for us. From the very beginning and throughout Jack and Carrie were very pleasant to work with and extremely helpful during all communications. They have truly been excellent and thoughtful tenants who have taken wonderful care of our home and all of it’s belongings and we appreciate their consideration greatly.

I would highly recommend them to any property owners looking for excellent short or long term tenants~You won’t be disappointed! It has been an absolute pleasure working with Jack and Carrie and I look forward to following all of their future adventures! :)” – Kelle Berry, Owner of Villa Vista Bleu email:

“Jack and Carrie Janssen were tenants in my Fiji vacation home in January 2015. They proved to be excellent tenants and treated the Villa as if it were their own. They kept me informed of activities and conditions and were very helpful with any issues that may have arisen. They are very neat, tidy and lead a healthy lifestyle and this contributes to what I would consider excellent long or short term tenants.

On a personal level they are very friendly, calm individuals and I consider them personal friends now and would gladly welcome them back at any time in the future. In short, you could not ask for better tenants.” Jerry Fitzgerald  -e mail: (679)712-8719

Mr. Fitzgerald, Owner of Villa la Jolla invited us back to care for his luxury, oceanfront villa - longer term - October 2015 to April 2016

“Jack and Carrie are the perfect couple to tend to your luxury home for any length of time. They recently looked after my ocean front villa for 5 and a half months and I couldn’t be more pleased. Jack was better equipped to care for the large pool and spa tub than any company which is difficult in an extremely hot climate.  Both very organized and thoughtful Carrie not only re-organized the entire chef’s kitchen for ease of use, she also taught my housekeeper/cook to create unique, healthy, delicious meals which has significantly expanded the menu.

They are clearly well versed in all areas of property management and assisted staff in preparing the villa for an impending category 5 cyclone. Very experienced and commonsense, Jack trained the new maintenance/grounds keeper in my absence and I trusted Jack implicitly with every aspect of running my vacation home. I would highly recommend them to any property owner.” – Jerry Fitzgerald, Owner, Villa la Jolla

“Jack and Carrie have established their winter 2013-2014 during almost 6 months in our Saint Lucia villa. They were our first couple in a newly refurbished and refurnished home, no need to say we were a bit worried having no previous experience. However everything went smooth and easy, Jack and Carrie have been perfect guests taking care of our home as if it was theirs. We are very grateful to have had such a delightful couple here, especially on a long term basis.

Thanks to their input we have even improved the comfort of our home for the benefit of everybody.  They also have kept us constantly posted about the villa and the life in the island which was so nice for us being so far away. They are very welcome whenever they wish to come back under the Saint Lucian tropical sun.” Warm regards from Paris France. – Orsolya & Daniel –

“From October 2011 through the end of March 2012 we rented our beach front penthouse condo on the island of Roatan, Honduras to Jack Janssen who proved to be an outstanding tenant.  We are extremely pleased he is returning to care for our unit again for the 2012-2013 season.

Mr. Janssen and his partner have taken exceptional care of our unit as well as the furnishings, appliances and roof top pool.  It was consistently reported to us via our housekeeper and maintenance person that the unit was always neat and clean.

This particular unit was for sale and there was never an issue when a showing took place as they were very flexible and always maintained order and cleanliness throughout. I highly recommend Jack and Carrie Janssen, however am hoping they keep returning to Roatan.”
