Housesitting Molly for a friend 

Mo – La Isleta, Gran Canaria, Spain 19 Dec 2023-6 Jan 2024


“A definite 10 for Sandy and Rob who were recommend to us. Our initial Whats App on line video meeting made us feel very confident and convinced that they were both taking the house/pet sitting very seriously, they asked all the right questions and had several years of experience.

On arrival we showed them around the house and then took them on a tour or the local area, our little Shih Tzu Oliver (Ollie) took to them instantly. Sandy and Rob spent a day and a half with us before we headed off for our 3 week holiday, during which we received regular updates, photos and videos, it was very obvious that our little boy was happy and being very well looked after and being taken on many day trips too. They also joined our Friday dog walking group and made some new friends who really enjoyed their company too.

 It was great when we returned to come home to a clean and tidy house and the lawn had been cut too. Ollie had a little sulk after they departed, I think he really missed their attention,

Without any hesitation Sandy and Rob will be welcome to come and sit for us again.”

“Sandy & Rob house and dog sat for us for a month through September 2023 . It was a great success . They gave us complete peace of mind , confidence  and reassurance for the 4 weeks we were away.

We arranged to meet Sandy and Rob on line and immediately felt they were ideal house sitters , experienced , competent, confident and practical and very much dog people who would look after our labrador.
They stayed with us the night before we left, which was ideal. We enjoyed their company and the opportunity to show them our house , garden and to meet our dog – who took to them straight away.
The stay went perfectly smoothly, with photo updates of our dog enjoying herself, which every dog owner loves!
On return the house and garden were pristine & we were greeted by a happy dog who had clearly had a great time .
We would definitely recommend Rob & Sandy as house sitters and hopefully will engage them again .”

“Sandy & Rob were a lovely couple and we knew from the moment we met them that our pets and our home were in safe hands. Throughout their sit we were shown pics of our pets to reassure us that all was well. The house was spotless when we got back. I would definitely recommend them.”

“Five star review for fabulous house sitters. A really lovely couple who looked after the house and pets so well. Everything was immaculate on our return and all the pets (who can be tricky) seemed very relaxed and happy. Couldn’t ask for more. Thank you so much Sandy!”

“We had a last minute family getaway and were extremely lucky to find Sandy & Rob available. From the minute we made contact, Sandy & Rob gave us every confidence that we would be getting great house sitters. We quickly connected. Communication was excellent and we knew Charlie and our home would be in safe hands. They thought of everything and made the process very easy. They were flexible and arrived the afternoon before we left for our break. We were able to show Sandy and Rob our home, the garden and our local dog walks. They really gave us confidence to leave everything up to them. They kept us informed with regular photos and messages. Cared for Charlie like their own and looked after our veggie Garden and pots. Upon our return we exchanged messages and they cooked us a delicious informal meal with Robs homemade sourdough bread and produce from the garden. The house was immaculate and they shared our space like friends both before and after. Thank you Sandy & Rob. We would love to have you back if you’re busy schedule allows.”

“I am fortunate to know Sandy and Rob – friends first and house sitters second. Leaving my young puppy for the first time for a two week holiday was difficult, especially as she was in the midst of a phantom pregnancy. However, I knew she would be in good hands; and, of course, she was!

Sandy and Rob are delightful house guests – my home was in exactly the same state as I left it. No cupboards rearranged, no cutlery moved, in fact, nothing out of place. And Nipper loved being looked after by her new pals.

For me with a busy life, it was fantastic to be able to go away and not worry at all about my home or my dog so that I could concentrate on relaxing and recharging.Sandy and Rob bring that comfort through their approach, and their demeanour – and I valued that enormously. THANK YOU!! Whenever you fancy another trip to Edinburgh, let me know and I’ll book a holiday 😊”

“Sandy and Rob are delightful sitters who are very experienced and consequently you feel completely reassured and at ease as you set off and enjoy your time away. Thank you both” 

Sally – Dalston, UK 13 – 19 May 2023

“Sandy and Rob were ideal dog sitters for our two Border collies for 10 days at our house and large garden in the south of Scotland hills. We would happily recommended them for other pet sits. What’s more, Rob makes an excellent sourdough loaf.”

Peter – Moffat, Scotland 3 – 13 May 2023

“Sandy and Rob looked after our animals and house for 3 weeks in February/March 2023 and were fantastic. Super nice and professional from the first contact, could not have been nicer or better. They came the evening before we left so we could show them the house and they could meet the animals and we had supper with them. Charming couple and took everything in their stride. They gave us updates on the animals whilst we were away, as requested, and we felt confident that all was well at home. The house was super clean and tidy upon our return and they even left us a fresh loaf of delicious sour dough, which was very welcome on our return. Would be 100% delighted if they were ever free to house sit for us again and would definately recomment them. THANK YOU SO MUCH SANDY AND ROB”

Julie – Guildford, UK, Feb – Mar 2023

“Sandy and Rob gave us total confidence whilst we were away. They are very experienced house sitters and were careful to completely understand the detail of what was required whist we were away. They kept us informed with texts and photos and thoughtfully left us supplies and supper for our return, with which we were extremely grateful. The dogs looked healthy and happy and relaxed.”

“Sandy and her partner were absolutely amazing! Annie loved them, I received regular updates with photos, and they left the apartment as spotless as it was when I handed the keys over. Definitely would call on them again, 10/10 experience!”
