General House Services

Do you worry when you are not at home that things are not taken care of properly?
We can refer you someone who comes highly recommended by your favorite chef and who will look after your interests when you cannot be there.

Having someone trustworthy house sit, watch your pets or take care of things while you are gone is like having your Mom at home again...
except she leaves when you get back!

House services/property manager:
Leave in peace knowing that someone is there to watch your house, water the plants, collect the mail... even receive your new couch and buy some fresh bread and milk before you come back. This property manager type of service also works for those wanting their vacation home maintained, or set up before they arrive for a holiday. We can also take care of everything from garden maintenance and renovation project management to supervising the cleaners or tradesmen who need to work inside your home.

Pet sitting/boarding :
Pets are such an important part of our lives - dogs or cats, and also such a pain when we want to go away for a well deserved holiday. Why not hire a pet lover to watch over them? No need to traumatize little Fifi or Fido by boarding them into a cage or a strange environment. All you have to do is kiss them goodbye and leave the rest to one of our contacts! We even have experience with various ages and sizes of animals, and have taken care of more than one large dog at a house on numerous occasions.

"We found Kristina to be very personable and reliable, she did an excellent job of taking care of our little guy "CASH" while we were away.
Happy Pet
We are quite sure Cash was happy to be able to stay at his home and was even happier that Kristina took him out on new adventures and for the occasional jog to burn off his excess energy. Our house was neat and tidy on return and we felt at ease on our trip knowing someone was there looking after things and appreciated her emailed updates. We would not hesitate to recommend Kristina and fully intend to use her services in the future."

Moving and Packing :
Moving from house to house is often an exciting time, but packing all your belongings can be a real painful experience. We can help! We can help you safely pack while you supervise the process or we can do it alone if you have better or more important things to do. Whether you need someone to pack for a few hours or a few weeks just send us an email to find out about rates.

Home Organizer :
After many years and lots of accumulation, it's time to have someone come and finally clean the garage that has been in such chaos since you moved in. Or perhaps that spare room needs to be converted to an office? We can help you organize even the smallest spaces so they work for your needs.
