“I can vouch for these two as well! They are Fabu!! Completely trustworthy and are Lovely!!” David and Chuck! Dec 2018, Mexico.

“I highly recommend Sandy and Rob as house and pet sitters. Of course my main concern was for my sweet little doggie Coco. She is shy with strangers and I was afraid that she would be difficult and they would never see her wonderful personality. I returned home to a beautifully brushed and happy animal. Halfway through my trip I received a pic of Coco reaching up for Rob and I knew instantly that they had become friends. Rob also did little chores around the house which I never expected. What a nice surprise that was. I returned to my house just as I left it. It was obvious to me that they respected my private belongings. This was my first experience having sitters and I was a bit nervous about it. After having Rob and Sandy I am now completely relaxed about my next venture. You will be happy choosing Rob and Sandy to take good care of your house and pets.” Judy, November 2018, Mexico.

“Dear Sandy and Rob,  
Hard to believe my bucket list trip has come and gone so quickly after all of the planning and anticipation! I want to thank you for being such ideal house sitters for the 2.5 weeks; I went away knowing I was leaving my dog Marlene, house, and car in trustworthy, capable and conscientious hands. When I returned I knew that my impression of you was correct when Marlene was torn between staying with me or going with you! In addition, you were resourceful—when the last leg of our return flights were cancelled, you had found out our new travel times and anticipated our return in the middle of the night even though we were unable to contact you.  
The house was just as I left it—clean and tidy, and the car had a full tank of gas. Thanks also for the delicious homecoming dinner that we enjoyed the next night instead. Best wishes on your retirement and travels. I hope that we will meet again (in a warmer season…sorry about our weather while you were here!)”

“Sandy and Rob house and pet sat for us from Sept. 12 to Oct. 5, 2018. They are experienced house sitters and very nice people and we feel very fortunate to have met them and to have had them sit for us. They love animals and animals love them. We have 2 cats and 1 small dog that were very well taken care of. Even our normally skittish older cat quickly warmed to them and was very comfortable with them. When we got home the animals didn’t really know who they preferred! Sandy and Rob took excellent care of our house, pool and yard. All looked beautiful after our 3 week absence. We also loaned them a car which was clean and filled with gas when they picked us up at the airport. They are from the UK and as we traveled to Ireland and Scotland they gave us some very good suggestions on what to see and visit there. They sent us regular emails letting us know that everything was fine. No issues came up during our travels but we are confident they would have handled things well if they had. We highly recommend them.” Linda and John, September 2018, USA.

“Sandy was a very well organised and the communication was good, we were in regular contact in the period leading up to the sit and she left me messages and sent pictures whilst we were away. We left the house spotless and when we returned it was equally as spotless, the animals were all well fed and healthy.” Gail, August 2018, UK.

“We couldn’t have asked for better house sitters for our first sit. From the moment they arrived they were calm, attentive and helpful. Our animals and house were so well looked after, (they even left us gorgeous home made biscuits and a new wine cooler for when we arrived back home, oh and they cleaned and tidied out our fridge!) we have told Sandy and Rob they would be welcome back at any time. If Sandy and Rob apply to look after your home and pets say YES YES YES and don’t look for anyone else, you couldn’t be in better hands.” Louise, Peter & Family, July 2018, UK.

“Many thanks to Sandy and Rob for taking such good care of our Greyhounds Violet and Clancy, whilst we traveled to Thailand for a wedding. They arrived the day prior to our departure, and Violet and Clancy warmed to them immediately, which enabled us to relax completely while we were away knowing they were in great hands !!! Sandy was in constant touch before and during the sit which was very reassuring as this was our first time engaging Pet/House sitters. Happily it was such a positive experience….I hope many more doting humans entrust their beloved pets to the excellent care provided by Sandy and Rob. BTW the house was ship shape and sparkling!” Carmel, April 2018, Australia.

“Such gorgeous people – so lovely and easy to deal with. Thank you so much Sandy and Rob.” July, April 2018, New Zealand.

“Sandy and Rob were great to deal with from the get go. From initial contact to bidding them a fond farewell at the end of their sit with us, it was nothing but smooth sailing. They stayed for 2 and a half weeks whilst we were on a trip to see family and both the boys and the house were in tip top condition on our return. We would not hesitate to recommend Sandy and Rob to house sit and hope that they can find their way back down under some time and come and look after the dogs again.” Erica, March 2018, New Zealand.

 “I cannot recommend Sandy and Rob more highly. They cared for my young staffy, Dottie Rose, and my ancient cat, Little. Dottie Rose had an outing every day, to beaches and bushwalks, cafes and drives. Little got her brushings and strokes. They even made Dottie a dogfood birthday cake with a candle for her first birthday! Pictures arrived regularly, along with comments about the pets’ wellbeing. Thanks so much you two, and I hope you enjoyed your NZ visit!” Amanda, Feb 2018, New Zealand.

“Sandy and Rob were wonderful house sitters they looked after Oskah and he was a happy boy when we returned. They were well organised and happy to fit into the environment of our home. They are very tidy and clean sitters and I would recommend to anyone wanting to go away and not worry about anything as they do a marvellous job.”  Moyrah & Terry, Feb 2018, New Zealand.

“Sandy & Rob were perfect house sitters. They were flexible and responsible. I trusted them the moment I spoke to Sandy on the phone, she was careful to understand what was required for the house and pets and was an excellent communicator. The house was left in better condition than we left it and the pets were happier than ever when we returned. We can’t recommend Sandy and Rob enough. Perfect, Trusted Housesitters. Thanks for all that you have done.” Francesca, Jan 2018, New Zealand.

“This was our first time using housesitters to look after our house and pets while we went away. Sandy and Rob were wonderful and put us at ease straight away. We left knowing our dog and lorikeet would be well looked after. We came home to a lovely clean house with the washing done which was much appreciated. The pets were well cared for while we were away. We highly recommend them as housesitters and pet minders.”  Barbara, January 2018, New Zealand.

“Sandy and Rob took great care of our home and pets for a week during January. Lovely people, very competent and took their job of taking care of the animals (and there are a few) seriously. Recommend them. Would use them again should they revisit this side of the globe.”
Leah, January 2018, New Zealand.
