About this sitter

My husband and I are hospitality and food services professionals in our early fifties who are well travelled and used to a variety of living conditions. We are looking to continue expanding our horizons by helping others while they are away from home.
Our pets have all now gone, the last was our 20 year old cat, 'Nairobi'
We are non smokers who enjoy a glass of wine with dinner.

Why they want to house sit

We would really enjoy the opportunity to take care of your home, hang with your pets (if you have any) and always enjoy experiencing new things. We truly love to serve others. What can we do for you?

Their experience

We have a variety of experience house and pet sitting, short and long term, from hobby farms to care-taking of a high end Bed & Breakfast. We have house and pet sat in the UK, North America, and Mainland Europe.
A few years ago we sold our home on a half acre, with fruit trees and vegetable garden.
Our experience includes- Chef by trade, hotel/restaurant management and maintenance (including pools and hot tubs). As managers we are well versed in problem solving and resolution. We are clean and organised too!
In the past five years we have helped many home owners with their house sits, several of which originated with MMH!

What can they bring to the assignment

We're an energetic couple with tons of integrity. We love pets of all shapes and sizes and are also great with plants. We have been invited to re-sit by all the owners we've sat for. We can provide references, and there are a few MMH testimonials too. We'll treat your home as if it were our own!

Keith & Hilary Nicholls

Harold & Penny were a very reliable and trustworthy couple who housesat for us and looked after our cat whilst we were away. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Great house sitting Harold and Penny

Harold and Penny were both an absolute pleasure to meet. Joe and I hosted them the night before we went away to be more confident that things would run more smoothly, as well as the fact we had to catch an early flight. We left feeling very happy that our home and dogs would be well looked after and so on our return, everything was just as we had imagined it would be. Most importantly, our dogs were very happy! We would recommend these two lovely house sitters.

Lovely Couple

Harry and Penny looked after our house and animals while we were away on holiday. We returned to find all animals had no complaints about their carers and the house just as we left it. Harry is a great cook and we enjoyed their company and look forward to meeting them again some time.
