“Perfect House Sitters”

“Sandy and Rob were perfect house sitters, and we would have them back again without a moment’s hesitation. This was our first time using sitters and we were a little apprehensive, but they very quickly put us at ease with a video call and, before agreeing to sit for us, asked sensible questions to make sure they were a good match. Our cats were very well looked after and we received plenty of photos of them being played with in the garden, or relaxing indoors. The house was left in perfect order, with bedding washed and everything clean and tidy, and Sandy had even baked us a cake – which was extremely welcome, with a nice cup of tea, when we arrived back late at night from our trip. Because of Covid, they left before we got back, so we didn’t get to thank them in person, which was a shame. Sandy and Rob – Thanks!!” Tim & sheila – Nottingham, UK, October 2020

“The Perfect Sitters”

“Sandy and Rob looked after our house, garden and our dog Milly for a month and were absolutely perfect as sitters. Communication was excellent from the start with fast responses and they sent regular updates and photos of Milly throughout the sit. This was very reassuring to know she was happy and well cared for. They took her on lots of lovely trips and filled her days with love and attention. They also had to deal with a few problems while we were away such as a mysterious flood in the cellar that needed cleaning up. Rob took this on efficiently with no fuss or drama, for which we were tremendously grateful. Other small issues were dealt with promptly and efficiently and our house and garden were left so clean and tidy it was a pleasure to return home and have no jobs to do! We didn’t immediately notice the courtyard had been weeded between the brick paving, a tiresome job we hate, this was over and above what anyone can expect a sitter to do! And they also left us homemade soup and defrosted bread and milk for our return! They think of everything! Just like to say we can totally recommend this lovely couple as house and pet sitters. Thanks Sandy and Rob for your care of Milly and our home, you really are the best!” Kathi & Gavin, Kidderminster UK, September 2020

“Sandy and Rob are friendly, professional, responsible people who genuinely love to spend time with pets. During their stay they even fixed a couple of things for us! We kept in touch via Instagram and WhatsApp whilst away; it was obvious that Alfie was having a great time and being very well looked after. The house was sparkling clean on our return and Sandy had even cooked a delicious lunch for us, so thoughtful! The whole sit ran smoothly thanks to Sandy and Rob, cannot recommend them enough as sitters, would definitely choose them again in future, they are the prefect couple to care for your pets, house and garden. Five stars 🌟”

“Sandy and Rob have been terrific house sitters, asking all the right questions before and on arrival, kept me updated to how our precious puppies were, gave said puppies loads of attention and walks and kept the property running smoothly.

I don’t think anyone would have imagined the rushed ending, with us all scrambling to return home, flights and schedules changing almost daily, yet Sandy and Rob were flexible, accommodating and created no fuss with any of it. I thank them most sincerely for being the professionals they are and have no qualms whatsoever to recommend them to any household for all your house sitting needs. From our family to yours, may the future be kinder to us all and thank you!”

“Sandy and Rob looked after Alfie and our house for 3 weeks in January. They came the day before we left to make sure the handover was smooth and on our arrival home, they had breakfast waiting for us. They gave us regular updates whilst we were away and we felt that Alfie was in very good hands, so much so that he doesn’t appear to have missed us at all! The house was beautifully tidy and clean and even the lawn had been mowed. Sandy and Rob are lovely, friendly people and I hope we’ll see them again. I would highly recommend them – for any future house owners, you’ll be very lucky if they’re sitting for you! Thank you to you both!”
