We need a house sitter

South Western Scotland - South Ayrshire


We live in a beautiful red sandstone semi detached villa overlooking the sea. The front of our house has no road access so views of the sea and Arran, the Holy Isle and Ailsa Craig are amazing as are the spectacular sunsets. We offer a comfortable home with a wood burning stove, central heating, cooking and laundry facilities and off road parking. Ladies bikes are also on offer (one with child trailer) and wifi is available in most rooms. There are our precious dogs to take care of - Rupert the cocker spaniel and Freeda the Weimeraner. You would need to agree to walk them rain and shine! They get 2-3 walks a day, one for an hour, one f0r 30-40 minutes and a short evening stroll.
They need fed and watered and will let you know if they need a snack too! They are very affectionate and friendly. They cannot be left alone for more than 3 hours as Rupert gets sad and Freeda gets naughty. However, they are well behaved and go with us to anywhere dog friendly. They are used to dog sitters being around and will quickly become your friend! We have a recent 2020 addition of our beautiful cat Piper who has quickly established herself as the boss! If this sounds like something you would enjoy please get in touch!

What a cracking week in Prestwick!, I was made to feel so welcome by Susan and Gerrie, and of course by their 2 dogs, Rupert and Freeda, Max their elderly tom cat was no real bother, he ate, slept and made it known when he wanted a bit of TLC. The home was lovely with all mod cons and a place to totally relax. Rupert and Freeda were a real pleasure to look after, each with a totally different but lovely nature, all the walks I did with them was in the local area, along the sea front, both dogs ... MORE

Such a fantastic week in Prestwick! The dogs Freeda and Rupert are so beautiful, they're well behaved and each have cheeky little personalities I got to know through the week. The walks along the seafront through the dunes are stunning, I had some pretty wild weather whilst I was there but it actually added to the experience! Susan and Gerrie weren't away during my sit but were out and about quite a bit and are so warm and welcoming. I had lots of great chats with them, recipe swaps with Susan ... MORE
LAUREN (Mar 2020 - 1 week 3 days)
Lauren was a delight to have looking after our precious dogs. They just loved her. Lauren was also super helpful with things in the house and even made us her seed breakfast loaf which is delicious. She stayed on at the end of the sit when we had a party, meeting our family and friends. We all had ... MORE
Amazing location on the oceanside! Lovely Victorian house - under renovation during time I was there, but it will be very gracious when finished. Dogs were wonderful to walk along beach and in dunes! Gerrie and Susan are very accomplished and busy people, and were quite accommodating, considering the general chaos of the renovations. I did not get to housesit per se, but I did get lots of time with the sweet doggies. Easy walk to the High Street and shops. Lots of friendly people on the walks ... MORE
SHERRI (Jan 2020 - 13 days)
Susan and Gerrie welcomed me with warmth and friendliness and made sure I knew the area, best walks, left me an emergency local contact number and ensured I was comfortable before they left. Both dogs were really good natured - I was a little concerned when they took the older dog with them that the younger would pine, however lots of long walks,cuddles , the odd treat or three and letting her into my bed helped us to get on really well. and her not to pine. The main house was under renovation ... MORE

Thanks again Amoghalila- come back and see us once the work is done and the house is back to full splendour!
Beautiful people, beautiful pets, beautiful location. What more can I say! Enjoyed my stay with Gerrie and Susan and wish them well. Thanks.

No rating Susan & Gerrie were fantastic hosts, Susan greeted me immediately with a warm smile & a big hug, they both made me feel so welcome & a part of the family & their beautiful large home, right on the Ayrshire seafront, literally, you can see the waves from the spare room and the living room window. Only 10 minutes walk to Prestwick town, the A77 bus stop, local bus stops, train station, post office and good old-fashioned town with Butchers,bakers, green grocer and independent little shops ...

JAMIE (Jan 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating Susan and Gerrie were the perfect hosts in their spacious Prestwick beach front home. We were made to feel at home the minute we arrived. The house is clean, comfortable and well appointed. Rupert, the calm and good natured spaniel and Freda the lively weimerana were beautiful and well behaved dogs reflecting the love and care they receive from their owners. Max, the cat, although 19 years old was no trouble at all. We really enjoyed taking the dogs for walks along the extensive ... MORE
ANDREW (Sep 2018)
No rating I had an absolutely wonderful time taking care of Susan's two beautiful dogs and also their gorgeous cat. I was made to feel incredibly welcome in their beautiful home. The house itself is just a stone's throw away from the beach which is perfect for lovely walks. It was a real pleasure to visit this part of Scotland and take care of these beautiful animals. I would certainly be delighted to come back again on another occasion and would highly recommend this house-sit to all pet-sitters.
