About this sitter

Hello, My name is David. I'm a fit 60 year old retired teacher living in London, UK. I have a lot of free time and I love house sitting. It's something I've done many times in the UK, USA, and Spain, and I've always enjoyed it. Having recently retired I have more time to devote to it and I'm open to offers from the UK and other parts of the world. I have my own home in London. I have no ties or responsibilities so I'm very flexible around dates and length of assignment. You can see my website at: https://justimagineit5.wixsite.com/homesitter, where you will find more information about me and what I do. Any homesits I do through MindMyHouse.com are free.

I'm a bit of a neat-freak, that's to say I'm neat and tidy in my own home and very clean. My lifestyle is simple and I really don't mind if you want me to look after a palace or a studio apartment. I'm quiet and won't annoy your neighbours. I don’t smoke or drink. I have a lot of experience with pets of all types and cats are my favourite. I don't have my own now because I live in a small flat and go away a lot to do house sitting. I'm a competent do-it-yourself person and can take care of minor maintenance issues. I also know how to maintain a pool, manage a garden and mow a lawn properly!

Why they want to house sit

I'm someone who enjoys home life but I also like travelling and staying in new places. I actually get quite a buzz moving from home to home.

Their experience

Lots of home and pet sitting experience over the past 19 years in the UK, Spain and United States.

What can they bring to the assignment

Experience, reliability, trust, enthusiasm, pet care and home management skills.

Testimonials

Wonderful house and cat sitter

David did a great job of house sitting for us, we would love to have him again. He is easy to get to know and was accommodating in his travel arrangements to get here. What's more, in our initial discussions he gave us confidence that he would do a good job of taking care of the house and our cat. In his week here he did take great care of our cat. He also kept in good contact and was considerate in his use of our house. When he left he even hoovered the house, cleaning in the kitchen, and left us a pint of milk in the fridge! Thank you very much David!

Reliable House & Pet Sitter

David came and stayed at our apartment for 3.5 weeks looking after our apartment and our cat Max. David went out of his way to rectify a little problem we had with Max visiting the local vet etc. We were kept in contact ref Max and David also sent us a few photos. David comes highly recommended and on our arrival back home we found the apartment very clean and tidy. We will certainly use David again. Cheers ... Allan & Theresa Brass, Mojacar Playa, Spain

House & cat sitting August/September 2016

David came and house sat for us as well as looking after Jinxy our cat whilst we were away on holiday. We found David to be a thoroughly nice person, courteous and reliable. As promised he kept in touch with us with updates on how Jinxy was behaving. We returned to our house to find it cleaner and tidier than we left it! We would recommend David to anyone in need of a reliable house and pet sitter. Keith & Hilary Nicholls
