About this sitter

We are a very capable and mature couple. We are both part time,self employed, so are very flexible with our time.
We enjoy experiencing new places, walking, gardening and spending time in a locality.

Why they want to house sit

We welcome offers for sits in Italy, France, Switzerland or Spain particularlly, any length of time. We are also interested in shorter house sits, in or out of season, in other Mediterranean areas We currently live in a small first floor apartment in central London and having both been used to pets, we welcome any opportunity to look after cats and dogs, plus other pets.

We are also interested in medium to long term positions in other locations e.g. the USA or Spain.

Their experience

We have had many house sit assignments in Spain, France, Italy, Rhodes and the UK. We have also house sat and house swapped with friends and relations.
We have extensive experience with dog and cat care.
We can provide many excellent house sitting references and also professional referees.

What can they bring to the assignment

We have a wealth of experience in pet care and home care alike. We are also both extremely practical, should the need arise.
We are quiet, calm and respect how others live and keep their homes.
We always carry our gardening gloves and a small tool kit, in case there are little things to fix.

We would also consider paid positions, that required more full on gardening and maintenance, heating related work, decorating or the like.

Testimonials

Simply the best!

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN Carey and Robin first came to house sit here in Grimaud about 9 years ago and since then they have stayed here many times. They have become real friends as I have 100% peace of mind with them looking after my house and my precious pets! They love France and know their way around extremely well, they both speak enough French to sort any problems out, which they do happily, more often than not without having to contact me! Each time I return home, the place is spotless, my dogs are happy and there are always some flowers! I have quite a lot of experience with house sitters and Carey and Robin top the list and always my first choice! You can take your trip with confidence and trust them completely. If you would like more information or to have a chat, please feel free to contact me in France on +33(0)494 451360 or +33(0)604 153830. Gail Raymonde

Robin and Carey came to look after our home and two dogs during Easter 2015. We have a Bulldog with health problems and a Cane Corso, so finding Robin and Carey was a blessing! They were absolutely superb with the dogs, walking them in the forests and around the village, and even gave Doris tummy massages! They also undertook many little jobs (including repairing our pool and plastering a wall!) whilst we were away. The housesit was so successful that we asked them to come back during Summer 2016 for another, much to Doris and Astro's delight! I absolutely recommend them.
