Sit #4 – Dec 2015 – Jan 2016

On meeting Vanessa & Ian I immediately felt at ease as they are a very warm, gentle and responsible couple and I felt we had an instant rapport.
This was only our second experience with a house sitter and they certainly set the bar high. They are extremely professional and organised and they made us feel completely at ease leaving our beloved pets and home in their hands.
They provided regular emails/updates and included photos of the cats, which we thought was a lovely touch and very thoughtful as they knew I had my concerns.
I was concerned about how one of the cats would react to having strangers look after him as he can be somewhat anxious, however I need not have worried as about a week after leaving I received an update to say that Bear was starting to come round and was even coming to them for a brush.
They took great care of the house and on our return the house was immaculate. It being a large house with a pool, I expected at least a few minor issues as it can be difficult keeping on top of everything, however everything was perfect and you could immediately tell they had taken great care of everything. They had even left us freshly squeezed juice, planted a crop of tomatoes and ensured there was milk etc. left in the fridge.
I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending them as house and or pet sitters. In fact, I asked them back, unfortunately they were unable to make the dates we needed. Hopefully we get to meet up with them again in the future as they are a wonderful and very interesting couple.
