Sit #53 – Dec 2018 – Jan 2019

Vanessa and Ian are perfect housesitters, I can’t find fault with them! They are genuinely lovely people who take pride in their ‘work’.
 
My cats were very well looked after and the house was beautifully clean and tidy upon my return. They are returning later this month and again in May.
 
I would not hesitate in recommending them and hope to have them back again after the dates we already have arranged.

Sit #52 – Dec 2018

I cannot thank Vanessa and Ian enough for their sit with Pepe and Nero. Two days before they arrived Pepe was diagnosed with diabetes and is now on insulin injections twice a day with a very regiment feed time schedule.
 
This was a very daunting scenario for us and his adults, we actually considered cancelling our family holiday as we were:
a) so upset that he was so unwell
b) were very worried about leaving him with people we had never met
c) concerned at putting this added pressure onto Ian and Vanessa
 
We were blessed to have had this wonderful couple arrive – they took everything onboard and delivered. Regular updates on the boys, house was in great condition, they were both just so lovely and so professional.
 
I just cannot thank them enough and hopefully shall see them both again in July… Many many thanks.

Sit #51 – Dec 2018

REPEAT SIT
 
This is the 2nd time Vanessa and Ian have house sat for us. They are perfect house sitters – great with all the animals and look after all aspects of the house.
 
We highly recommend them.
 


 
REPEAT SIT
 
As we had to arrange at short notice a business trip, Vanessa and Ian were able to stay on from their previous house sit with us.
 
They really are a very professional couple and would highly recommend to any one wanting a couple with a lot of experience in house sitting.

Sit #50 – Dec 2018

Vanessa and Ian are the loveliest people, they arrived and we had an instant rapport, and of course the animals went mad for them… always a good sign.
 
We had a lovely evening with them and heard about their amazing adventures, they really have been all round the world. Regular messages while we were away to let us know how our furry friends were and then home to find and immaculately tidy house.
 
We would have Vanessa and Ian back in a beat… sadly they are rather sought after so we are planning on taking a holiday when they are available to sit… well maybe!

Sit #49 – Dec 2018

HOME OWNERS’ FIRST HOUSE SIT EXPERIENCE
 
This was our first experience of hosting with Trusted Housesitters and fortunately for us we were in extremely safe, capable and professional hands.
 
We cannot thank Vanessa and Ian enough for making this a superb experience for us. It really was a 5+ star experience all around. Handover was both timely and smooth and they made us feel confident from the word go that all would be well.
 
Un-intrusive contact was maintained during our time away which only served to allay any doubts we may have had as first-timers. We would love to think they would be able to sit for us again in the future and we hope it’s not to long before we meet them again.
 
A very big thank you to you both from all of us.

Sit #48 – Nov 2018 – Dec 2018

Anyone who has Vanessa & Ian house sitting can relax in the knowledge that they are very experienced and calm and can probably deal with anything that might crop up while you are away! They were very good with our pets and we came home to a spotless house.
 
I highly recommend them and I hope that perhaps they will be able to return to sit again for us. A lovely friendly couple who arrived as strangers but left as friends.

Sit #47 – Nov 2018

HOME OWNERS’ FIRST HOUSE SIT EXPERIENCE
 
We had never used Trusted Housesitters before and I was very anxious about how the whole process would work. I needn’t have worried as Vanessa and Ian were wonderful. They arrived the night before in order to meet our pets – 4 dogs, 5 chickens and a horse and both my husband and I immediately felt at ease in their company.
 
They came out with me in the evening in order to follow the usual routines with the animals and also took note of things like where the fuse box was and the water stop cock etc- details I hadn’t considered. By the end of the sit I felt we had made two new friends and now feel totally liberated in that we can now go on holiday and away for short breaks away again.
 
I can’t thank them and Trusted Housesitters enough and look forward to welcoming them back again in March.

REPEAT SIT
 
I was really happy to have Vanessa and Ian return to catsit for Perry – they are such a friendly, organised couple, I was able to go away without a second thought, and they did a great job of looking after Perry and the house beautifully. Thanks a lot to you both – would love to have you back again! x

Sit #44 – Nov 2018

It was fantastic to meet Vanessa and Ian before we left. They are such a lovely couple. It felt truly ‘freeing’ leaving the house and cats knowing Vanessa and Ian were there. So much so we have planned a couple more trips and look forward to Vanessa and Ian returning! Can’t get too much of a good thing!
