Careing Sitter's

70, Retired

70, Retired

We are a Very Clean and tidy couple. Both retired and BOTH DOUBLE Vaccinated, Non Smokers, flexible enough to complete house sitting tasks we apply for to suit the home owner. We enjoy walking, Owned cats in the past, do not mind looking after other animals. We would consider most locations. We have owned our own businesses in the past and are very organised and responsible.
We have successfully completed house sits to the satisfaction of all home / pet owners.. We would expect to come into a home that is clean and tidy as that is the way we live. Home would be left in a clean and tidy condition on your return. Cheers Neil.

No rating Fantastic housesitters and very kind people. Thank you for helping us out by coming around early when our plans changed last minute. Left our home in perfect condition and our gardens in even better condition. Thanks again :)

If I could give more than 5 stars for Neil and Margaret I would. They were great right from our very first communication, to when we walked back into our house after they left, cleaner than I've ever seen it. They had even done our huge pile of washing I hadn't had time to get done before we left. We have some very happy cats and rabbit, and they sent us regular text updates so I knew exactly what my furry babies were up to. If you get the chance to have Neil and Margaret house sit for you, ... MORE

Neil and Margaret actually sat for me in late March, early April, as they accepted different dates from an earlier ad I placed. I was so lucky to have them, as things quickly changed when I developed Covid and had to return home early to isolate. They were incredibly kind and understanding, and managed to make some new arrangements for their last few days, for which I was extremely grateful. I returned to find they had done an amazing job, and house, cat and garden were all very well cared ... MORE

Neil and Margaret were lovely people and wonderful sitters. The house was sparkling clean and the animals relaxed and happy. I think Marg might be an animal whisperer.! They went above and beyond - really looking after our vege garden - washing and drying all the linen sending pictures and little stories about our pets. Excellent sitters- great communication, Highly recommend!

We had Neil and Margaret on "stand by" during lockdown as it was unclear whether we would be able to get away or not. They were so flexible and made the whole process easy. They came and cared for our little cat and our home with care and love. Willow was thoroughly spoiled and really enjoyed their company. The house and yard were in immaculate condition when they left! We hope that Neil and Margaret will cat sit for us again in the future.

Our cats & home couldn't have been in better hands. Neil and Marg are lovely people and have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. I can highly recommend them, we are so lucky they chose to sit for us. Thanks to them both!

Amazing!!!!!! Would highly recommend! Great communication which included a couple photos of our cat while we were away. Came back to a cleaner house and the gardens done. Incredible! Thanks again Neil and Margaret!

No rating A big thank you to Margaret & Neil for house sitting for us including our little "Blackie". It was lovely to come home to a nice clean house and food in the cupboard. Lovely cheerful couple who communicated with us while we were away that all was well and our little dog well looked after with walks every day.. We look forward to welcoming them back when they come to house sit for us again in April.

House Security

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
