Mature. Reliable.Experienced Sitter.

68, Tour Guide/Park Ranger

70, Retro Clothing Dealer

My name is Bill (Philip) and I am originally from London but have lived most of my working life in Australia where I work as a Nature Tour Guide running 4WD camping tours in the outback (utube/bill snooks/Uluru and Ayers Rock). I have also worked as a Park Ranger, Outdoor Education Instructor and on farms. I am 68 and a non-smoker. I have been back in the UK for seven years now spending time with family and travelling through pet and house-sitting. I am registered with Trusted House Sitters and have completed over 90 sits with them; due to the situation with coronavirus and the shortage of sits with fewer people travelling, I have decided to register with this site also. Roe is joining me from Australia in July and is also a genuine animal lover who has kept cats and dogs; between us we have lots of experience and many of the sits I have completed through Trusted House Sitters have become repeat sits. We are reliable, non smokers, and your home will be well cared for and left clean and tidy. I can put you in touch with people who's animals i have looked after through THS and can send you work references. Currently there are two reviews on this site. Thank you.

Bill stood in at the last minute to look after my two rabbits. I couldn't have asked for a better person! Bill is very considerate, taking time to understand what my rabbits would need before looking after them. Bill communicated with us before, during and after the visit. Keeping us up to date on the rabbits, as well as sending us some photos of them so we knew they were safe and well.

Thanks for that Charlie. I really enjoyed being with those gentle souls and I was even visited by a Jay (don't see many these days) that came and sat on your back balcony so I take that as a lucky charm! Have a great year and maybe see you in the future.
YOUR REVIEW OF THEM: Phil and Roe are a lovely couple who enjoy life to the full. They were very attentive when we were giving them advice and instructions, they attended to our garden as best they could considering the extremely hot weather and the fish became their best friends. I would strongly recommend this couple to anyone who is looking for a conscientious couple who would look after their home, garden and fish, haha, that they are responsible for.

Thats kind of you and thanks! We had a lovely time and I think Roe would prefer to live under the spreading birch 'fairy tree' than in the real world.....she is very wise about such things! Look after yourselves and each other...friends found! X
No rating Bill is a really genuine guy and animal lover who took great care of our cats Django and Socksie at our flat in Hove while we were away from 8th-15th November, texting regular updates on their welfare, and he left flat nice and tidy toowith towels washed! Would thoroughly recommend Bill as a pet sitter.
