Lucía & Matías – International House Sitters
40 and 30 years old couple.
Part time international house sitters and homeowners.
Home and pets carers and lovers.
We have experience as house sitters in our home country (Argentina). Now, we are living international house sitting experiences and mixing them with our jobs as digital nomads. We are currently in Mexico taking care of Pearl and Thor! 🙂
We are a couple from Argentina. Lucía is 30 and Matías is 39 years old. We live in our own house in a small town called San Nicolás de los Arroyos (north of Buenos Aires province).
Lucía has a degree in Human Resources and Matías has a degree in Translation. We both have recently decided to become digital nomads. We love travelling and we have visited many countries such as Mexico, Spain, England, France, Italy and Morocco.
When we are at home we enjoy working in the garden (Lucía has a nice collection of succulent plants) and also growing our own vegetables in a plot of land. We have a 2 year-old cocker spaniel called Almóndiga. We love spending time playing with her, giving her cuddles and going for walks.
Lucía works as a virtual assistant for entrepreneur women. Matías has his own project (Letras Nómadas) through which he helps other translators to become online entrepreneurs and also offers his services as translator and content/copy writer.
This means that we both need to spend time at home in order to carry out our responsibilities, so we will need a reliable internet connection.
In the case you accept our proposal, we plan to stay at home with the pets and combine this with our jobs but also with sporadic day trips and walking tours (which we would love to do with your pets, if possible).
And even though we would love to take Almóndiga with us, we think that the best alternative so far for her is to stay at home with other house sitters who will take good care of her.
Why we want to house sit
We love pets and we also love helping people. We are doing this in order to help pet owners to travel or to go away feeling the peace of mind that their beloved pets and homes are well looked after.
We also want to housesit because we think it is the best way to slow travel and know new cultures as locals while working on our digital projects. We love the possibility of making new human and furry friendships around the world so we consider that housesitting is a great alternative for this.
We choose this kind of life to be constantly leaving our comfort zone in order to keep on growing personally and professionally.
Experience as Pet Sitters
Since Matías was a little child he has always had dogs, cats and also some birds and even he had a hamster. Matías has experience in giving attention to sick and pregnant dogs.
Lucía’s parents were stricter regarding having pets at home. But as soon as she was old enough, she rescued a dog that now is another member of the family. We always keep an eye on our animals health and Lucía is the one who is always alert when there is any strange behaviour.
We are really used to taking care of pets that need special attention. Our own families know that we love pets so much that they rely on us for taking care of them and their houses when they go out on vacations.
Experience and skills as Home Sitters
Nowadays we work at home so we are very well aware of the importance of having a clean and tidy environment. We would love to take good care of your precious home too!
We will keep it clean, tidy, fix any simple problem that may arise and of course will take care of your beloved pets.
In the past we have rented apartments and houses and we have always taken care of them as they were our own. That also includes keeping good relations with our neighbours, of course. And we also have experience as house sitters in Argentina!
We have travelled via Airbnb and stayed in many different houses and apartments in a successful way.
We love gardening and taking care of our orchard. We enjoy cooking our own food and we also have experience in general maintenance of a regular house (painting, simple electrical mendings, keeping alarm system, etc).
We are always really eager to learn new things and we would love to be your next housesitters!
