Thoughtful House sitters

63, Retired

63, Retired

We are a young and active couple in our 60s. Both of us have recently retired and currently doing a lot of travel. We own our own house and have kept our home in good order over the years. We are both house proud. We are renting our own house out while we do some things in life away from home. Like all good house sitters and guests we will treat your house with care and respect. Lorraine is a very keen gardener and we are very happy to do any garden care that an owner would like.

We have house sat in a number of lovely houses with some wonderful pets on this site. Indeed one of the great rewards of house sitting is not only get to know the pets but also the family and the area where we sit.

We have also house sat for family and friends, including on farm and rural properties, over the years. We are very comfortable in rural or more isolated locations as well as urban areas and gave been lucky to sit in some wonderful spots

In our pre-retirement era, both of us started life as teachers (Lorraine as a home Economics teacher and Kendal as a high school counsellor) before moving into other careers, University administration and Human Resources /counselling respectively.

While we normally live in Australia we have family in the UK. While we are happy to house sit almost anywhere we are reliant on public transport, although we do have Australian driving licences. We are both non smokers

How lovely to have met Kendal and Lorraine and have them look after our pets and house. They communicated very well before hand and sent some wonderful whatapp images during their stay. We felt they were very professional in their approach and we felt completely at ease leaving them in charge. We highly recommend them to look after pets and property.

Having never had a house sitter before both my husband and I were very nervous about the whole thing. Kendal and Lorraine instantly put our minds at rest. The communication from them both leading up to and during there stay was amazing. Receiving almost daily pictures of our family (2 dogs, bearded dragon and 3 guinea pigs) proved to us just how well looked after everyone was. When we arrived home I swear our house was in a better condition than when we left and our dogs were extremely sad ... MORE

What a joy it was having Kendall and Lorraine taking care of our dogs! As soon as I met them, I loved them already! They are the 2 sweetest people in the world and the dogs took to them very quickly. Knowing that they were taking care of the house and the dogs meant that we could relax completely on our trip overseas. They took the best photos of the dogs that they sent every day to keep us up to date. I really recommend them as pet sitters! You will fall inlove with them too...they are ... MORE

What a delightful couple, who left our home in spotless condition and two very happy cats. It was a pleasure to meet them and to be greeted to a delicious courgette frittata on our return. we would happily have them back for a further stay. We were treated to daily photographs on what's app and messages, which we much appreciated.
JOLYON AND SUZANNE (Tenterden England, Jan 2020 - 2 weeks 3 days)
Kendal and Lorraine were excellent house sitter for our 2 lovely cats, took very good care of them and genuinely wanted the best for them. Communication was frequent and detailed, they were very organised and everything was covered for eventualities whilst we were away. They were very respectful of our house and its contents, I would highly recommend and definitely invite again.
PHILIP (London England, Dec 2019 - 1 week 6 days)
Kendal and Lorraine were a lovely couple and very professional about the care they provided for our pets. Many lists and photos were taken to ensure continuity - our pets didn't even notice that we had gone! When we arrived to a very tidy and clean home a thorough handover was given...it was obvious they loved looking after our pets and even more obvious was our pets loved being looked after by them ! This was our first time using house sitters and it definitely won't be our last! Thank you ... MORE

We couldn't have wanted more. They kept in touch whilst we were away, the house was impeccably kept, and the cats clearly loved their attention. I would HIGHLY recommend them,
JACKY (London England, Nov 2019 - 3 weeks)
After a disappointing experience with a previous housesitter (not through this website) I wanted to make sure my next experience would be better. During my first phone call with Kendal and Lorraine they listened to my concerns and set my mind at ease that my cats were going to be well cared for whilst I was away. When we met on the day I left, they were lovely, respectful and asked all there was to know about the cats' routine, my wishes, the house etc. I was completely re-assured when I ... MORE
REN (Leeds England, Oct 2019 - 1 week)
Kendal & Lorraine are wonderful house sitters and lovely, caring people as well. They cared for our home and pets including our elderly Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who needs daily medication. They also ensured that the bird feeders were kept topped up as I have many wild birds who rely on the food that I put out. We were kept informed with daily photos and comments and we returned to a spotless house and a roaring fire to keep us warm. I have no hesitation in recommending Kendal & Lorraine - ... MORE
MARY (Oswestry Wales, Oct 2019 - 2 days)
Kendal and Lorraine are superb house sitters and truly wonderful people. We left them in our very old cottage with a menagerie of pets; including two elderly cats who needed daily medical treatment. Kendal and Loraine cared for them all with great interest, care and compassion. The reassuring, informative and often amusing daily updates about all our pets helped us feel both connected and relaxed while away from home. Their experience, competence and sensitivity shone through during ... MORE
