Why they want to house sit

I believe in slow travel. Getting to know one place well is more interesting than ping ponging from one tourist attraction to another, Loving animals and being of service to others is a great way to travel the world. Your house will be in perfect condition when you get back and there will be a plate of warm cookies waiting for you.

Their experience

Yes.

Ritha has recently done a 3 week house sit for us looking after the house and our 2 cats. She arrived, as arranged, on time a day before we left, was very friendly and easy to get on with and we departed with no anxieties about leaving her in charge. On our return we found that she had really enjoyed her time in London, the cats were happy and relaxed and the house tidy - she had even fixed 2 broken chairs. We found her a delight, highly entertaining and a very good communicator and feel we will see her again one day.

To Whom It May Concern:

Ritha Fellerman managed my home as an Airbnb property for two years. As it turned out, various house systems were in need of repair, and almost from the day she started, Ritha had to suspend the Airbnb activities in order to make the house habitable both for herself and for the guests. She has an astonishing eye for detail, she is endlessly inventive, she is terrific at finding high-quality, low-cost solutions, and also terrific at finding the best help possible. She’s also great at suggesting and implementing capital improvements—she realized, for example, that having an additional half bath would improve the level of service and comfort, and after discussing it with me, figured out how to do so. The pictures of it are wonderful!

She is also a terrific hostess. One thing that was very important to me was to maintain my Airbnb “Top Host” rating, and she has done so. She’s received wonderful reviews. I can recommend her without reservation: She is active, practical, cost-conscious, aesthetic-conscious, and above all, absolutely responsible. I couldn’t take better care of the house myself. Please feel free to email or call if you want to discuss my experience with her.

In addition to the routine maintenance of the house, including staff management, payment of bills, etc., I’m listing the many projects, repairs, and improvements she has undertaken in the last ten months, just so you have a sense of her abilities and boundless energy and organizational ability:

Repaired water pump
Repaired, resealed, and painted all roof surfaces
Touched up bedroom paint
Repaired cracks in walls and all other damage to walls and doors caused by water leaks
Painted house exterior and outer wall exterior
Painted exterior staircase
Re-cemented metal stanchions on patio floor
Replaced toilet in existing bathroom

Built a third bathroom
Installed a lip on bottom of shower to contain water

To Whom It May Concern:

I’m writing in recommendation for Ritha Fellerman, who was my house sitter during the summer of 2015. I would recommend Ritha highly.
I have two indoor cats and two outdoor cats, and a rather extensive garden in the Southwest, which requires a fair amount of vigilance to keep alive in the hot summers here. I was pleased to return to find my cats happy and well cared for – Ritha was loving and affectionate with them, and kept their box and environment clean. I know they are going to miss her.
Ritha also kept the garden in good order, watering so that the plants survived the rigors of the summer, and I’m most grateful about that. She is a charming and personable woman with extensive travel expertise, and I believe would be a valued house sitter for anyone.

Sincerely,
