Intrepid Traveller

45, Clinical Researcher


I come from a professional background as a clinical researcher in the pharmaceutical industry, where my role involved a lot of organisation and problem-solving. I have also done volunteer work caring for vulnerable people which involved house care too.

I'm currently on a career break and have enjoyed travelling around the UK and internationally. I have stayed at many airbnb homes and had good feedback on how well I have looked after the host's rooms and homes.

I enjoy travelling, hiking, yoga, cooking and reading.

Please get in touch if you would interested in me sitting for you.

David was quick to communicate and we felt very comfortable having him in our home for our first house sitting experience. He went above and beyond for us, responding to silly requests to drop milk at neighbours, take meter readings, buy extra cat food and kindly mowed the lawn! We believe the house was left immaculate on his departure. Unfortunately unable to meet but would happily recommend and welcome back.

David kept the house clean and tidy. And was punctual in his arrival. David is quiet and respectful.

David was great and I would ask him to sit for me every time I need someone. He took great care of dogs, plants and my home. Everything was spotless on my return and you would not know someone had stayed in my house. Flight restrictions delayed my return by 10 days and he happily assisted us as he could.
HENDRIK (Aldershot England, Nov 2020 - 5 weeks)
This was our first experience of using a house sitter and I am pleased to say we would again. It was a pleasure to have David in our home for the past 2 1/2 weeks. David arrived at the agreed time and we were able to show him around and walk Rocco on his daily route. Rocco was happy on our return and looked well. David managed his health issues and administered his medications as requested. Our house was left clean and tidy as we had left it. I would definitely recommend David and have ... MORE

David is a fantastic house sitter we returned to a lovely clean house and happy healthy pets, would highly recommend.
CLAIRE (Haslemere England, Aug 2020 - 14 nights)
David did such a great job looking after our dog, Molly. When we arrived home it's as if we hadn't been away albeit she was very excited to see us. Our house and plants inside and out were looked after as if it was his own home. We had to return home a day early to avoid quarantine on return to UK and could only give David 24 hours notice, this was difficult for both sides, but David was very understanding in the circumstances and made some last minute arrangements. Highly recommend this sitter.
TIM (Essex England, Aug 2020 - 10 days)
David was a great Housesitter for us. Our pets were all well cared for and happy when we returned from our trip. The house was spotless. We had regular communication and David was reassuringly concerned about our older dog who was obviously a bit anxious at night time. We couldn't recommend David enough and will certainly be inviting him back!
VICKI (Hindhead England, Jul 2020 - 2 weeks)
David was our first 'house sitter' experience and he was great at talking in advance of the house sit so we could all feel comfortable with everything. He arrived punctually and with time to talk him through the house, despite the best efforts of the UK traffic to delay him. He was also looking after our five year old Airedale terrier Wilbur, whose ear got cut while we were away which he dealt with very well. While we were away he was always quick to respond to our communications.
STEVE (Milton Keynes England, Feb 2020 - 3 weeks)
This was our 1st time using housesitters. David looked over our 2 greyhounds and our chicken very well. Our house was well looked after as well. The handover process went well. David is a charming gentleman.
CAROLINE (Norwich England, Sep 2019 - 3 weeks 5 days)
David was excellent and we were able to leave our dog,our house and garden in good hands. Can highly recommend.
DAVID (Abingdon England, Aug 2019 - 4 weeks)
David did a great job looking after our two cats and four chickens. He put up with many unwanted 'gifts' of dead things from the cats and left the house absolutely perfect for our return - much appreciated.
KEITH (Chesham England, Jul 2019 - 3 weeks)
David arrived early so we had a chance to get to know one another. He is a quiet laid back guy very easy to talk to. My daughter came to the house e wry 4 days to deliver Ellie's food ( she is vegan so we cook for her) my daughter said Ellie and Lily our cat we're happy and content and there were no issues. David was always friendly and the house tidy. I would not hesitate recommending David and would certainly have him back to house and pet sit again. Thank you David
KERRIE (Potterton Scotland, Jun 2019 - 5 weeks)
Excellent! First time I have used house sitters and I am delighted to say that David has been caring my dog Jonas very well, the house was looking probably better, than I had left it, when David came to stay. The garden looked great and the plants in the greenhouse and polytunnel had been watered. I would highly recommend David as a house-sitter, especially as this was a long period to look after my dog, house and garden. Thank you David!
DAGMAR (Tewin , May 2019 - 26 days)
Very polite, quite, respectful chap. House was left as clean and tidy as the day I left. The dogs where very relaxed on my return. Would not hesitate in recommending David.
ALEXANDER (Nr Castle Acre England, May 2019 - two weeks)
This was my first time using a house/pet sitter so I was slightly nervous but I'm so happy I did and will certainly do it again. It was as if I'd never been away. The house was lovely and tidy when I got home, the dogs were so settled and peaceful and didn't seem to notice I'd been away. One of my dogs is very nervous around strangers but David handled him so well and within an hour Flash was completely settled. I wouldn't hesitate to use David again, he iis extremely professional and a ... MORE
YVONNE (Goole England, Mar 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
David looked after our house and 2 terriers for a month in Feb 2019. He is trustworthy and took good care of our house & dogs and walked the them daily. We returned to a spick & span house & 2 happy dogs !! We highly recommend David as a trustworthy house & pet sitter.
MICHAEL (Rothwell England, Feb 2019 - 4 weeks)
David has been Avery responsible and effective house sitter.He sent photos of the cat...very thoughtful of him.He also dealt with all queries very professionally.Nothing seemed too much trouble. I'd be delighted to have him again .
JANE (Dartmouth England, Jan 2019 - 3 weeks)
No rating David looked after our house, dog AND chickens for over 3 weeks and he really did a great job. The handover was easy, he gave me updates and responded to my messages while staying here promptly. The house was immaculate when we got back, just as we left it. Overall, a great experience with housesitter.co.uk and I can highly recommend David as an exceptional house sitter.
LUAN (Malvern England, Dec 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating David did a fantastic job of dog and house-sitting for us while we were abroad recently. He sent updates and pics of the dogs and was thoroughly professional in his approach. We woud recommend David without reservation.
RACHAEL (st.andrews England, Nov 2018 - 4 days)
No rating David was our very first house sitter and we were very happy with the overall experience. David was a very pleasant person and from the outset he had a very mature and professional attitude. During our holiday he did a great job of looking after our 2 Yorkshire terriers and cat and on return the house was in a very clean and tidy state. He was happy to give us updates on our pets while we were away and went the extra mile to make sure they were well looked after. Communication and ... MORE
DAVID (GILLINGHAM England, Oct 2018 - 2 weeks 3 days)
No rating David looked after my two German Pointers for just under 4 weeks and was brilliant. I left with total confidence that both my house and the dogs would be well looked after. He contacted me regularly to let me know all was well or indeed if he had any queries. One of my dogs is not the easiest and he handled him very well. When I got home the house was so clean and tidy and he left everything as it should be. I would have no concerns in recommending David to house/animal sit and would ... MORE
ANNETTE (Chichester England, Aug 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating David house sat for us for 10 days over Easter 2018. It was our first house-sitting booking and we were a little nervous about how the whole process would pan out. From the very start David was professional, courteous and clearly committed to doing a the best job possible. He allayed our fears of any last minute cancellation and through a phone call and detailed email we exchanged all necessary information. The house sit went incredibly smoothly, David looked after our boisterous gollie and ... MORE

Safe house!

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