Testimonial

It was a pleasure to have Lynette in our home, taking care of our dog and our apartment for 3 weeks. We really appreciated that she left the apartment spotless and that she re-organised our kitchen closets! She is very self-sufficient and we were so impressed that she repaired our vacuum cleaner on her own. We saw that our dog was healthy and happy when we came back. It was also great to receive news from her on a regular basis. A big than you to Lynette from us and Tulip! We hope to see her again in Panama!

Great Sitters

A very accomodating couple. Lynnette found she was allergic to something in our condo and had to go home after a few days. Keith stayed on and took excellent care of our home (even the floors sparkled), our plants (they all survived) and our cats (who all seemed to have gained a little weight). When we decided we could return 3 or 4 days before the expected 7½-week sit was over, that was fine with Keith and he was very willing to adjust his schedule for us. We recommend them very highly.

Outstanding, trustworthy and reliable

Let them in care of Our home from Nov. 2020 til April 2021. They did landscaping, minor repairs, extensive house cleaning, and taking care of our new puppy. Better than family. Will have them back whenever available.

Summer in San Antonio, TX

Keith and Lynnette stayed in my home for a six week period during the summer. They traveled by RV, which they parked in the street out front. They were both excellent home sitters. During their stay Lynnette attended to the inside of the home, including plants and cleanup. Keith , on the other hand, did all outside work including the yard and a table project. All said and done, both were extraordinarily handy and trustworthy.

Keith and Lynette

They did a great job with our two dogs and took great care of the house as well. It was very well kept and we would welcome them back again.

Fabulous, responsible house/pet sitters

Keith and Lynette were terrific house sitters; my dogs were well loved and very settled upon my return after being gone for three weeks. Lynette cleaned and organized all my cabinets (at my request) and she and Keith completed a very lengthy "to-do" list I had left. They put up a bike rack, recycled all the backloaded glass, watered the yard, weed wacked numerous areas and hand weeded several flower beds. They were tireless and I so appreciate their help. I highly recommend them to housesit.

An Excellent Choice

Keith and Lynnette took care of our house, with one dog, two cats, and two horses for four nights. They were great at doing everything required for all of the animals and kept the house very clean. In some ways, the place was better when we returned than when we left, since Lynnette took it upon herself to do a bunch of weeding that we had been putting off for a while. They're both very personable and easygoing. It was a pleasure having them around, and we wouldn't hesitate to have them housesit again!

This was the second time that Keith and Lynette pet/house sat for us. Ricki, our German Shepherd, was well cared for and happy!! Keith and Lynette are very friendly, dependable and respectful people. They were also very flexible in regard to our plans changing.

House sitting in the Cayman Islands

Highly recommend Keith and Lynnette If you're lucky enough to spend anytime with them beforehand, you'll enjoy their company and stories! Our home was well looked after, and more importantly our fur babies had adapted and found a second set of parents in K&L. We would have them back in a heartbeat. Shaun, Vanessa and Isla.

In good hands with Keith and Lynette!

Keith and Lynette were so flexible and easy to work with when planning for their arrival and departure. We got to spend the evening with them when they arrived and hear about their travels and experience. They did an excellent job caring for our golden doodle dog, and we knew she was well taken care of! They were very clean and helpful in restoring our place back to just as we left it, with clean sheets, towels, and all! It was a wonderful experience and would be happy to have them back to Washington, DC anytime!

Best House Sitters EVER!

We had never used house sitters before, but had a long trip planned, and our elderly dog requires daily medication and we wanted him to be comfortable at home. So we chose Keith and Lynette to sit for us, and boy did we hit the jackpot with them! They were great with communication before our trip, and easy to talk to. They have a lot of experience with animals and home repair and maintenance, so your pets and house are in good hands with them. They also were happy to carry us to the airport and pick us up on return, saving us a big parking bill for our 6 week trip. Best of all, when we got home, everything was cleaner than when we left! But it gets better, Lynette is a workhorse and likes to stay busy, so she initiated some projects we had been dreading and putting off, like restaining a large deck, refinishing outdoor light fixtures, pressure washing all of our concrete and brick (which is a lot!), and even repainting and lettering our mailbox. We were absolutely thrilled, and can't thank them enough for the care and work they put into taking care of our home, and of course our little dog Jack, who was well cared for and in great shape when we returned home. When we travel again, we hope Keith and Lynette can work us in to their schedule, because they are GREAT!

Lynette and Keith were great house and pet sitters

Sorry that this is so belated as Keith and Lynette house sat for us last December, 2017. We just now saw their request for a testimonial! They were great house sitters leaving everything in perfect condition. Even more so, they were excellent pet sitters. Comus and Jack seemed very content with them. We would have them back any time.

Keith and Lynette are the BEST!

Lovely people! Easy going, understanding, and flexible to changes in plans. Took great care of the house, even though we are still in the long (extended version) process of moving in and unpacking- which can be challenging for everyone. We highly recommend them as caretakers!

Great Sitters!!

Keith and Lynette were a wonderful solution to our house sitting/pet sitting needs. They were a great couple - very friendly and personable. They left our home in immaculate condition and even did a repair on a kitchen faucet for us. We were so glad to have them stay with our dogs. Comus and Jack warmed up to them immediately and we could tell that they were content and happy pups upon our return. We would have Keith and Lynette sit for us any time and hope to see them back again in the future.

Keith & Lynnette

Keith & Lynnette were dream housesitters! They were way "above and beyond" and exceeded all my expectations. Very friendly and responsible, a delight to share time with. My dogs were very happy in their care and my house was in better shape when I returned than when I left. Before my trip I had planned to clean my car, but I ran out of time - surprise, they did it while I was away! They will always be welcome to return.

Thanks Keith :)

Keith was my sitter in June '16. I'm very happy with the job he did. More importantly, my cats were happy, healthy and content and didn’t abuse me for abandoning them. Keith’s personality is one of quiet calmness and my cats quickly warmed up to him and accepted him into their family. They're not often this accepting, especially my little girl. He fed & played with them, brushed them and even slept with them. :) He drove me to/from the airport, purchased needed items for the house, & even offered to finish my paver project. I would happily have him sit for us again

Lovely house sitter

Keith & his wife were great sitters. They were so accommodating with my changing schedule. Very easy to communicate with before, during, and after the visit. They took amazing care of my cats and left my house spotless. I enjoyed hosting them and would be happy to again!

Keith was totally professional, nice and trustworthy!!!! Good choice if you are looking for a sitter!

I met Keith the night before I left town. I showed them some of the beach area and we had a great time getting to know each other. I was totally comfortable leaving my kitty care to him. And I was right. We corresponded while I was out of town and when I got back, every kitty was happy and well taken care of. It was also so nice to come home to a clean house and better than I left it. Keith even repaired a lamp that was broken and several other things he took care of. He is a normal all American kind of man, no drama and a great choice to have your pets/house looked after. I recommend!

A Jewel of a Find

First off I have to say that these are the cleanest people you will ever meet. He/Her were available on a short notice which was a godsend to me. Working with them was a complete Hassle Free experience . Showed up on time, communicated great, went above and beyond what was asked of them. I would highly recommend Keith for any sitting position.
