Enjoying our 155th house sit!

Hi all! We've been full-time sitters for 7 years and love our life on the road. We're a friendly, reliable, happy, responsible and trustworthy couple who've been together for 16 years and are non-smokers with no pets or children.

We love being surrounded by animals and have plenty of experience looking after dogs, cats, horses, goats, chickens, ducks, sheep, geese, rabbits, chipmunks, turkeys, pigs, donkeys, hamsters, cows, rabbits, ferrets and tortoises. We both grew up on smallholdings so are very natural, calming and confident around animals.

We realise how daunting it must be to allow strangers into your home to take care of your beloved pets and most prized possessions but rest assured you're in safe hands with us. We'll take care of everything while you're away and message you with regular updates unless you'd prefer a complete break. We can provide ID of course and we've plenty of house owners who are happy to provide references.

We love the animals and people we make friends with, the homes we look after, the areas we get to explore and the freedom house sitting gives us from being tied down. It's an exciting, varied and unique lifestyle that takes us all over the UK and suits our minimalist approach perfectly. We don't charge anything - all we need in return is internet connection, as we're web designers. We appreciate every night that we have a roof above our heads, so, thank you in advance.

We do tend to get booked up pretty quickly but things change all the time - we have a website with more info and a detailed, up-to-date calendar so ask for a link and we'll pop it over to you. Thanks for taking the time to read our profile and we hope to hear from you soon - happy to chat over the phone or on video-chat to answer any questions you might have.

Warm regards,
Rachel & Dave

Dave kindly sat for us in September after we had to postpone our originally holiday twice! His communication was excellent and he arrived in good time to meet the dogs before we headed off early the following morning. The dogs were really well looked after and Dave was happy to work to the needs of both dogs, particularly Ruby who is very 'unique' when it comes to her food and walks! Dave both enjoyed and respected our home and has kindly agreed to come back to sit for us next year which ... MORE

Dave and Rachel were perfect Housesitter's and cat sitters. You know that your moggy or doggy will be well cared for. The house was very clean on our return too. This couple have loads of experience and full of common sense. We met for a cuppa before sit as they were staying locally and it was as if we'd known each for years! You'll be very lucky if you manage to get them for your sit. To say I recommend would be an understatement. My cat pined for Rachel for a full day!!

Thank you so much for such a lovely review! We loved taking care of Gerry for you and can't wait to come back :) x
What an amazing couple who came to our rescue. They looked after our two dogs and rabbit and our home. Could not thank them enough. Come highly recommended

Rachel and Dave were great sitters, looking after the dogs and walking them, and keeping the house tidy. I have no hesitation in recommending them, and would be very happy to have them here again

Dave was great at communicating with us, showed up on time and was incredibly professional. Leo looked happy and well taken care of when we returned!
LISA (London England, Dec 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating David and Rachel 'sat' for me earlier this year for the whole month of May 2018. During that time they managed the viewings on my house as at the time it was up for sale. My estate agents feedback was that the house was presented in excellent order. And that's the way I found it on return at the end of the month,and looked even better than I left it. I nearly forgot, they looked after my dog, and the same could be said. IE that the dog looked in tip top shape, and in great condition.. Rachel ... MORE

JOY (Dereham England, Sep 2018 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating We can't recommend Rachel and Dave highly enough. They were fantastic with our dogs and chickens, and the house was left very clean and tidy. They were on time with no dramas at all. We will certainly use Rachel and Dave again.
RUSSELL (Corfe Castle England, Apr 2018 - 1 week)
No rating Rachel and Dave looked after our house and animals wonderfully, even some of the time they were up to their knees in snow ! I would thoroughly recommend them to all. They are coming back to do a second sit for us in June and I'm sure they will sit for us again in the future.
