About this sitter

I'm a sensible and adventurous, mature woman who works from home teaching online and likes to travel the world. I am currently teaching/assessing disadvantage students part time. I live in and enjoy the countryside and love city life, where I worked before lockdown. I enjoy life to the full! I have a partner (Tim) who is able to join me on some house sits depending on work commitments.

Why they want to house sit

For this year, I am looking for house sits in England to come back to my roots. We have pet/house sat in Kenya, Ireland, Malaysia, Copenhagen, Portugal, Spain and India and the UK - all with great success and excellent reviews.

Their experience

I was brought up on farm life and always with dogs. In my adult life I had numerous cats to love. I worked at a kennels in Suffolk back in the day - looking after both dogs and cats whilst their owners were on holiday. That was fun! I have experience of house sitting dogs and cats and have travelled extensively to many countries. I have both owned my own home and rented property successfully, so I know how to look after other people's property.

What can they bring to the assignment

Reliability, caring for your home and pets and keeping in touch. A 'no fuss' approach - tell me what you want done and I'll do it! I am very clean and tidy and non-imposing. I am a very good organizer - I used to be a Project Manager of a number of community projects working with vulnerable people. I consider myself to be semi retired now and am able to keep myself occupied.

Carole & Courtney were the best house sitters ever!

Carole & Courtney contacted me to come over to Pontevedra (Galiza, Spain) in Easter to look after my two dogs, Xaxa and Golfo. Carole is a very responsible and sensible person, she came with her granddaughter the day before I left to be able to come with me during all the walks and to be sure they would know everything needed to look after the dogs. She kept in contact to be sure she knew what to do with Xaxa's alergy and anytime anything unusual happened. Courtney is the most sweet and polite kid I have seen in a long time. She got on really well with Golfo since the beginning, walked and looked after him too. At home they left everything better than it was before. I am very grateful and happy that they decided to come here.

Excellent catsitter

We came home to a couple of happy, relaxed cats and a flat that probably was cleaner than when we left. Found fresh flowers on tables and laundry all done, unnecessary but still a very nice touch. Would have Carole and Tim back any day.
