About this sitter

We are a reliable, honest and caring couple, looking to take care of your home and pets as if they were our own. We are very flexible with dates, locations and requirements, preferring rural locations as we love the outdoors. We both speak English and French fluently.

We love nature and walking, reading, playing the piano (if you have one!) and snuggling up by the fire, preferably with some four-legged friends too!

Why they want to house sit

In 2016, we decided to give up our home in the UK and begin a slower, more natural way of life. We loved the idea of putting money aside and becoming part of the sharing community by exchanging our skills and services. We were also excited to meet like-minded people and discover new ways of living and parts of the world - it's been even better than we imagined!

Their experience

Our house sitting adventures began in April 2016, with 5 cats and 8 kittens at our very first house sit! Since then we have explored and discovered some wonderful places, come to love many new pets and met some really great people too. We are lucky to have lots of house sitting experience and have provided our services all over the world, everywhere from the UK to New Zealand, and for a wide variety of pets and farm animals.


Here are some of our many references - these can be confirmed on our various house sitting profiles:

"I cannot recommend Rebecca and Antoine highly enough. It was a big leap of faith for us to have house sitters as it was the first time we'd done it, and were worried that we hadn't met them before, but we couldn't have been happier with our choice. The house was immaculate when we got home (tidier than when we left it!) and there was a delicious veggie Moussaka waiting in the oven for us. The cats were relaxed and happy and had obviously been extremely well cared for. Rebecca had updated us on their progress during our holiday and we were completely confident that they were being looked after in our absence. Unfortunately we had to cut our holiday short due to illness and although we offered to put them up in a hotel they made alternative arrangements, which made a really stressful situation so much easier for us to cope with. I reiterate that I can't recommend them highly enough and would use Rebecca and Antoine again in a heartbeat. Please do feel free to contact me if you would like to speak to me in person to get feedback about them."

"Thank you to Rebecca and Antoine for looking after our kittens and house so diligently. We felt confident we had left everything in good hands and were proved right. They left us with an tidier garden (thank you) and made sure all was clean and tidy for our return. We would happily have them to house sit again and recommend them to anyone looking for a sitter."

Phil & Tamsin, Bristol - UK


"Dear Rebecca & Antoine, You guys were such a joy to have stay, not only did you leave the house nice and tidy, but you had so much enthusiasm and went to great efforts to interact and play with The Claw Boys. We were sad to hear you had moved on, as we would've loved having you return. Really happy for your return to the UK, and wish you all the best ahead, you will have no trouble securing future house sits and we are delighted to provide this endorsement for you :)"

Testimonials

Beyond perfect

I don't really want to recommend this couple too much as I'll never be able to have them back otherwise! Beyond perfect, it there such a thing? My cats adored Rebecca & Antoine; they were thoroughly spoiled...and so were we.

Highly Recommend!

We can wholeheartedly recommend Rebecca and Antoine. They were our house sitters for three months in 2016. They were highly reliable and took excellent care of both our home and cat in western France. We were especially pleased with their excellent communication. They emailed and Skyped with us at regular intervals throughout our absence, giving us updates and reassuring us that we had left our home in excellent hands. We returned to find our cat very content and our home in better shape than we left it. They are a charming young couple and are an excellent choice as housesitters.
