Who Are We

Below is my LONG DETAILED description of things!!  I write this out as I LOVE situations that are clear as I find out EVERYONE has a WAY better situation – especially because most people I’ve house and pet sat for have had some less than positive situations in the past with other sitters and many of the situations could have been avoided with clear communications.



WHO IS VICKI SKINNER?!:
(aka "THE Sarong Goddess")

The founder of “Loving Your Pet House Sitting” - is me - Vicki Skinner (aka "THE Sarong Goddess").  I've had a love of "animals" all my life and even



I'm the author of
a popular • high Google ranking English Information Blog helping make people’s lives easier in Costa Rica that I've been doing as a labor of love for over 8 years (these days it receives over 22,000 Page Views a month.  In Costa Rica's hey-day, it was as much as 37,000 Page Views)! 

The point with sharing this is I'm ESTABLISHED and known and I'm not going anywhere yet nor will I do anything to bring anything but love to your Fur Family - or hurt my reputation!!

My passion in life as far back as I can remember is CONNECTING people – Gathering and Sharing Information - and helping Fur Babies feel more secure while you're away by sharing LOTS of LOVE to fur babies that can use some extra attention for awhile – for whatever their needs are!   I share my BIG heart and magical hands to help your fur family feel more secure while you’re away (ESPECIALLY helpful for Rescue animals that already probably have double abandonment issues).

For 5 years I had a guest house • retreat property • Self-Empowerment workshop space and holistic well-being space in Escazu (the Fountains [aka House of Connections and House of Self Empowerment]) but I closed it in 2010 in part to get a break from the working 20 hours a day as well as to get out & about & explore Costa Rica!!

I've literally sold just about everything in a 6,000 sq'/6 bedroom house and am down to just 5 suitcases that are stored in Escazu (my main base) and now I'm free to explore different parts of Costa Rica and I also am splitting my time between Costa Rica and in between gigs - in Nicaragua!!  (though I admit I STILL have a special place in her heart for Escazu - ESPECIALLY San Antonio!!)

I WILL SET UP YOUR VACATION PROPERTY
Do you have a vacation rental Condo or Villa - or a Hotel?  Are you new to this - or - could you use some help making sure it's up to the rental markets standards?  Are you sending good/clear responses?  Do you have a contract that protects you?  Are you listed in the key places & know other places to promote yourself?  How's your Facebook Page (CRUCIAL)?   I've been in marketing/promotions/p.r. for over 30 years & tourism for over 20 years & I think outside the box!!! 

Also, I can come into your property at the beginning or end of Season & do a detailed inventory & assessment of things you need • might want to have to have your place  ready to show how Customer Service-oriented you are & how you stand out amongst all the other vacation rental properties.  
Do you have a binder with menus, tour info, English-speaking taxi drivers, various services from English-speaking doctors & dentists for emergencies, to other local contacts, markets, etc.?
