Tim and Marree had a 3 week stay at our country residence and did an exemplary job of looking after our home and our many animals. We returned to a sparkling house and happy animals which was not easy during this dry time. Communication was excellent throughout and matters arising from left field were dealt with efficiently and without a fuss. Upon vacating we were left with a comprehensive, written summary of events that occurred. The fussiest of home owners could leave Tim and Marree in charge of their pets and possessions with the utmost confidence.

Tim & Marree, Thank you for looking after our house and our dog while we were on holidays. We really enjoyed the almost instant friendliness and comraderie that was established when we first met and continued until we saw you off too your trip home. We really appreciate the care you took with both our home and our pet dog while we were away, 10 out of 10 . We would have no problem recommending you to any future house/ pet sits that you apply for.

If you are ever fortunate to get Tim and Marree to look after your home and pets, I would highly recommend you do so. They went out of their way to care for our elderly dog who needed extra special care and foods. They were here 24/7 for our dog and bird and nothing was too much trouble. They were great keeping in contact with me with what was going on. I highly recommend them to look after your home and pets knowing that they look after them like they were their own.

Tim and Marree looked after our home beautifully but more importantly they were there 100% for our very sick dog. We were so grateful that they put so much effort in to caring for our 11 year old dog. He kept them on their toes with his declining food preferences and Marree went out of her way to trying different foods and approaches to getting him to eat. A very stressful time for us to be away but comforted to know Tim and Marree were in constant contact with what was happening. Forever grateful for making it easier for us to be away at this time. You couldn't ask for 2 more dedicated sitters.
