About Michael

Hi there! We are Mike and Roula and we are fortunate to have an amazing location for runners, walkers, bikers, hikers, and our four-legged buddies.

We live in a one-bedroom condo unit (2nd floor of a house) in Upper Market, near Castro, Buena Vista Park and Corona Heights Park.

A one-minute walk (essentially directly across the street) is a spacious dog run with a beautiful view of downtown SF. We make our way over to the dog run at least twice per day, often times more assuming that the weather permits.

We both work from home so you can be sure that at least one person will be at home at all times. Roosevelt Way is a quiet street sandwiched between Corona Heights Park and Buena Vista Park. A half-mile walk to the north and you find yourself at the Panhandle.

We love dogs and have always enjoyed caring for our friends dogs along with our own.

Michael was a wonderful host for my little guy, responsive to my queries, flexible with drop off and pick up times, and sent me daily photos of the pup having a good time. Thank you!
Mike and Roula were very responsive to our beagle's needs, and ours as well! Got back quickly via text and sent photos. I would definitely recommend!
Couldn't have been more impressed! Mike sent pictures every day and it looked like the dogs had a great time.
Mike and Roula are fantastic! From the first exchange, Mike was warm and friendly with our little pup Scooter, and made us feel very secure. Mike provided daily walks and always went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly while we were at work. His flexibility, good nature and ability to quickly make Scooter his pal, are all part of why we trust Mike and would highly recommend him!

Mike and Roula are fantastic! Our dog Step spent the weekend with them and their host puppy Toby, and she came back very happy and relaxed. Mike sent me lots of photos of Step out at the park, hogging Toby's bed, and generally living it up. When we dropped her off, she had a licking sore on her paw, and when we picked her up, it had almost healed-- the ultimate proof that she got lots of exercise and attention from her hosts! We will definitely be sending Step to stay at Michael's again.

My Welsh Terrier Oscar had a great time with Mike and Roula. They were very responsive and easy to work with when setting up the reservation, and took great care of Oscar while I was gone. They live right across the street from a great dog park, so Oscar got plenty of exercise and came back home a tired, happy pup. Thanks!

Mike and Roula were fantastic! They truly went above and beyond in caring for our little Lucy. They gave her extra long walks, lots of cuddles, kept us updated while we were on vacation, and even applied Lucy her daily medication in some not so easy to reach spots. I would go back to them any time!

Zoie had a fabulous time with Michael and Roula. I got frequent text and picture updates while she was with them, and they are a couple who seems to genuinely adore animals. They took Zoie for playtime at the dog park and lots of walks, and she got to hang with their pup, Toby!! Book a dogvacay with Michael, you and your pup won't be sorry. :)

Mike was great. He sent lots of pics and Barney seemed to have a great time with Toby. Mike took both dogs to the dog park regularly to burn off excess energy. Barney was very sad to leave Toby behind and was very quiet all the next day.
Mike was wonderfully flexible to accommodate our flight schedule - thanks.
Great experience, highly recommended

Mike was great! He sent us lots of updates with pictures of our dog so we could see what a great time he was having at their home and on their regular trips to Corona Heights. We'll definitely book with them again the next time we go out of town.
Mike and Roula are great sitters. They are very responsive and accommodating regarding meet-n-great/drop-off/pick-up. I got updates & photos of my 8-year old beagle during my weekend trip. I am very satisfied and grateful that Mike and Roula had made this whole process easy. Will definitely recommend them!

As anyone with a dog knows, finding someone we can leave our pups with isn't easy. Sure there's the institutional "boarding option", but the thought of the boys being left pent up all day just about kills me. So I was psyched to find Mike and Roula on dogvacay.com. Like me, they work from home most days. And from the minute we began exchanging emails, to the meet-n-greet where we were able to see how their Toby might get along with my guys, they really made me feel comfortable knowing the dogs would be well cared for. Sure enough, when It came time to drop the dogs off for the weekend, I just mknew they would get the same love and care they get at home (and quite possibly even more!). Mike was really great with photo updates and took some great pics that I've since uploaded to Facebook. More importantly, when I returned to pick up the dogs, they weren't jonesing to get the heck out of there. While they were glad to see me, I felt like they would have been just as happy to stay another night. And that says a lot especially given that one of the dogs has a bit of separation anxiety. I wholeheartedly recommend Mike and Roula to care for your babies should you need to leave them with someone. We'll be back for sure!
