House sitters from Heaven!
I have just had my first house sitters experience and WOW, did we hit the jackpot! Norma and Chris are in one word a gift, especially for someone who has never done this before. Norma gave me so much advice and made sure that I left the house feeling that I had not forgotten any important information. We arrived back after a 10 day stay with our family in the UK. The house was sparkling clean. Soup and Cottage Pie in the fridge. Happy content animals. We are so very grateful that we found you both Norma and Chris. Thank you so very much for everything. I hope that one day we will get the pleasure of meeting you both again. Love and thanks June and Gary xxx

Chris and Norma are excellent sitters
Chris and Norma looked after our house, dogs , chickens and guests while we were away, they were all well cared for. Would happily have them back to cre for things again. They are happy and confident couple who were all we could have wished for. You won't regret asking them! Thanks again Jenny and Richard

To whom it may concern
Chris Coleman and his partner Norma Harris were by far the best housesitter we ever had ! They were at our place for 5! month, taking care of two dogs (incl. medical help) ,two cats and an old mex. Neighbor. Everything was as we- left- it, or ! in better shape when we came back.We can recoment them to everybody and would be 100% happy if they decided to come back to our place!! Absolutly trustworthy !!

Chris Coleman house sit June 2016.
We could not have wished for better house sitters than chris and Norma. They were considerate, responsible and communicated with us excellently leading up to and during the sit. They were lovely people and we enjoyed the little time we spent with them. Both of our dogs were unexpectedly unwell just before the sit. Chris was unphased by this and managed medication etc. We were reassured and put at ease by chris who is clearly very experienced with animals. The house was left tidy and clean and the garden was very well cared for. We would not hesitate in recommending chris and Norma.

Efficient and caring house-sitter
Chris has house-sat for us three times now, looking after our two boisterous dogs, cat and chickens. He has always been extremely reliable and everything is immaculate when we arrive back home. The animals have been well cared for including grooming the dogs which is certainly over and above the remit of the house-sit and has even prepared a lovely supper for us when we returned home! Chris has also clearly taken care of the garden in our absence by watering and mowing the lawn. I can thoroughly recommend Chris as a house-sitter and am aware that he has a lot of experience.
