Around the world I have looked after houses and boats. Leaving a home/pets can be both worrying and stressful. My experience leads me to respect the phrase 'never say never'. I am practical, sensible and astute.
While you are away I will be there to keep an eye on your home and your pet(s), dishing out lots of tender loving care and maintaining their familiar routine. I adore animals. Given the amount of years spent on the road . . . I seek home comforts, running hot water, a comfy sofa, TV and exploring local country walks - even stay at home cooking. Should I sit for you I will 'be at home' not out and about sight seeing. This I can do before or after I sit using my van - I plan accordingly.
I rent out my Somerset home and travel full time, backpacking around the world - this is year nine of this lifestyle. I currently have a camper van to carry my backpack and am touring Europe. I housesit when I wish to spend time in the U.K.
I like a face to face initial tea/chat. Where possible I'll come and see you beforehand and we'll see how we get on. Certainly a telephone conversation or two, video call if you wish etc.
I returned to the UK in July 2020 and have refrained from house/pet sitting during this unsettling time. Please feel free to message me and check my availability as restrictions ease. Many, many thanks to wonderful owners and pets I have met to date.
Jules did a wonderful job taking care of my home and dog Chester while I was away for a week. She was meticulous in ensuring that she understood his routine and went above and beyond by staying up with him when he was spooked by thundery weather. I came home to a very tidy home and a happy little dog. Thank you Jules!

Jules is an excellent house sitter. She prepared notes prior to the sit so she knew what to do when she arrived. Her communication was excellent. She fulfilled the role she had undertaken completely and the house was immaculate when we returned from holiday.
I would recommend Jules.

So delighted with Jules care, love & attention to Teddy & our home. She kept me informed regularly with photos & updates. I hate being apart from my little dog & the fact he remained in familiar surroundings reduced my levels of anxiety to virtually zero. This is the 1st time we have used this service & I'm sure we will again. Many many thanks.

Jules is a fantastic house sitter offering a very professional and attentive service. She visited prior to our trip and quickly developed a bond with our dog, Molly. She was careful to understand her needs and that of the "house". We left feeling completely content that Molly was being well looked after and returned to a very tired (from lots of wonderful walks) and happy dog! House was just as we left it, We will be booking Jules again in future, and would not hesitate to recommend her.

Jules is a lovely Lady. Very capable and all with the minimum of fuss. She genuinely likes dogs and I know she gave my Collie more walks than he gets from me..! She is completely trustworthy and I have no hesitation in highly recommending her.

Jules, has just finished a 6 week house-sit for us, looking after our 2 dogs and cat. The animals were all very happy and contented and extremely fit and well on our return. The dogs have been very well walked. Jules took the time and trouble to stick to our routine with them and also with the cat. She was extremely efficient. We have a close knit community where we live and Jules fitted in well with all our neighbours. She showed great respect for our house and looked after everything ...

We have a close knit community where we live and Jules fitted in well with all our neighbours. She showed great respect for our house and looked after everything extremely well. Where there were minor hitches in the house Jules dealt with them sensibly and efficiently and communicated with us where necessary. We would be very happy to recommend Jules as a house and animal sitter and happily have her here again to sit for us in the future.
Jules was a great housesitter who looked after the animals extremely well and looked after me just as well! you would be welcome back at any time whether housesitting or just visiting.

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