Caring Housesitter Globetrotters

73, Retired area director & proprietor of various businesses.

72, Retired solicitor

Retired couple with no encumbrances. We flit between South Africa and the UK doing house/animal sits for friends, family and house sitting agencies. However, we are returning to the UK to settle but still doing our House/animal sitting. Keith is a retired solicitor, was a partner in a private practice in Hillcrest, South Africa and from 1990 a solicitor with a couple of practices in Bath, then opened his own locum law business in Bath. Christine has owned and run a couple of businesses, was an Area Director for a well known chain of estate agents in UK. We have two children and 5 grandchildren dogs, cats, hamsters,all live in USA.
We have looked after dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, fish, chickens, donkeys gardens and houses. Love all animals, don't have any as we travel a lot thus the reason for animal/house sitting? Not afraid to cut the grass or keep properties clean, like our own homes. Keith was born in Zimbabwe, his father was a Major in the British Army, his mum from Leeds. Christine was born outside Glasgow, her father was in the RAF, mother was from Lancashire and in WAFS. All parents had their own successful businesses. Non smokers. Love animals, especially dog walking.

Having just arrived home I am happy to say that Chris and Keith have been brilliant. The animals were all happy and spotlessly clean, and more work had been done around the stable than we had asked ......thank you! House immaculate and everything washed and dried, again more than we asked. Would not hesitate to use again, hopefully when a bit drier and they can enjoy the location a bit more.

Thank you, we loved the dogs, the donkeys and your very comfortable home. Did enjoy the wood burner and so did the dogs! We do try to go the "extra mile" when house/animal sitting. Would love a "summer" sit next year to appreciate the beautiful countryside.
Chris & Keith were the perfect house sitters. Regularly stayed in touch throughout their stay and showered Zippy the cat with much love and affection. Great to come home to a clean, tidy house and fresh flowers... thank you both!

No rating This was our first experience of House sitting and some family and friends were concerned with this decision. I wanted my dogs to still be at home and I needed care for my chickens. from my first conversation I was really put at my ease and I knew that I had made the right decision. I cannot recommend Chris & Keith highly enough they are friendly, approachable and a lovely couple. The house was looked after and we received regular updates about our pets throughout our holiday. We had ... MORE

No rating You couldn't find better house sitters then Christine & Keith. I wanted to make sure my animals and house were well looked after and that was certainly done. Everything was left spotlessly clean and the animals all very happy and contented. They went the extra mile by sending me updates that all was well and even left me some food and prepared vegetables ready for my return. A huge positive endorsement. Thank to you both
