Linda and Brian were the perfect sitters for our furry felines. They took the time to get to know each one, and learned their individual characteristics. Needless to say the cats loved them. On meeting Linda and Brian, we realized we had a lot of experiences in common, as to our boating lifestyles, and they were friendly and easy to talk to. They adapted easily to our quirky home, and quickly took to our daily procedures. We arrived back late at night to a clean house, and happy pets. Communication was perfect while we were gone, and they were able to resolve a couple of household problems easily, by WhatsApp messaging with us. We greatly appreciate the efforts they made to care for the cats (now 7 of them) and somehow keep our house tidy. We are so happy they enjoyed their stay in Puerto Rico and would not hesitate to recommend them to other home owners.
Linda and Brian gave us peace of mind during our holiday. From our initial contact through to the end of the housesit they were attentive, organised, polite and friendly. Our main concern was Zinzin our elderly cat, but it seemed she was in good hands and well cared for, we are grateful. Our home was respected and left tidy on their departure. The winter weather of below freezing temps, snow and ice made life a little tricky with access to our property, but we are pleased to hear they enjoyed the area once out and about. Thank you for us all.
Linda and Brian are a lovely couple who we strongly recommend. The were patient with our cats, looked after the house beautifully. We came back to a lovely dinner in a perfectly tidy house with most relaxed cats.
Dear Brian, Dear Linda, Thank you so much for taking such good care of my little cottage and my gang of 3 cats. You were so accommodating to co-ordinate your travel dates with my holidays which was very much appreciated. It was a great relief to leave my home and animals in such caring hands! I hope to welcome you back some day! Best wishes, Veronika - Plum Cottage
Linda and Bryan did a wonderful job of looking after our property, cat and hens while we were away on business for a week. Everything was in perfect order when we arrived home and Linda had prepared a delicious curry for us on our return. The house was shipshape. cat happy and hens obviously well looked after. Would recommend Linda and Bryan as trustworthy, capable and very pleasant house sitters.
