Major sudden illness of the home owner has led to cancellation of our multi-year repeat regular 4 month house sit to end of Sept.
We are an active retired professional couple, married 30+ years, reliable, NON-smokers, neat, clean & tidy, with very high house & pet care standards.
We have been home-owners ourselves since the mid-1970's and house carers for others since 2013. During this time, we have been virtually fully booked, including numerous repeats. These repeats are also commonly booked with us well in advance and are for longer term house sits. We attribute the repeat requests to our description by more than one home owner as “the house sitters from heaven”. Our focus is to provide top quality house sit service so that home owners can truly relax knowing that their pets & homes are being well cared for in their absence. We send regular updates to you & treat your home as if it were our very own.
We have become friends with homeowners due to our dependability and our extremely high professional home care, cleanliness & tidiness. Home owners welcome:
- Our attention to security needs whatever the location & trustworthiness (eg case of lost passport of owner overseas requiring urgent contact & action at unusual hours including directing us to unlock & access private files for copying & witness by appropriate authorities prior to transmission to an overseas consulate);
- The well-honed knowledge, skills & care we provide for plants (indoor & outdoor), gardens, pool & yard maintenance including lawn mowing; and particularly,
- Our broad knowledge, experience & quality care for the diverse range of people’s pets - furry, hairy and feathered, of varied sizes, ages and breeds & with varying dietary, medication, grooming & exercise needs, indoor / outdoor, & very importantly, their needs for TLC including sleeping arrangements. We really enjoy experiencing the different personalities of people’s pets in their response to our caring standards. We were both fortunate to grow up on farms which has left us with a great appreciation of nature, animals and plants & their contribution to the daily pleasure of our lives.
We find that home owners commonly prefer to phone us rather than email on receipt of our application. We are happy to meet with owners in situations where locations & timing permit. We are also available via Skype and WhatsApp.
We are happy to provide relevant referee contact details on request. As a courtesy for home owners, given the prevalence of unwanted marketing calls, we also prefer to notify them in advance of your call.
