Testimonials

Wonderful!!

Deidre and Mike were wonderful - friendly and caring from the start. They brought me lovely gift on arrival and I felt at ease immediately. We skyped before we met also. They looked after my 2 cats very well, sending me regular updates and I didn´t worry at all whilst I was away. I came home to a clean house, washed sheets and 2 very happy cats. They even did little jobs for me around the house that I couldn´t do myself as Im not very handy!! Rest assured that your home and pets will be in very good hands!!

Wonderful, conscientious, thoughtful couple who our pets obviously adored!

I was so lucky that Mike and Deidre contacted me to house sit and look after our menagerie of dog, 3 cats, rabbits, guinea pigs,chickens and goats! The initial contact was prompt and very reassuring - they have been house and pet owners so understood totally what was required. They are easy going, open and friendly and kept in contact during the 4 weeks of their sit. I felt totally confident leaving everything in their care and never worried for a minute while I was away. I knew I could trust them to act as they saw fit should anything untoward occur to either the animals or house and felt totally confident in experience. The animals obviously adored them - particularly Asti - our dog - who was VERY loved! The house was immaculate when I got back and Deidre even cooked a delicious dinner for us all on my return. I am only sorry that they didn't see the best of the beautiful Lot as it rained constantly during their stay - so sorry I couldn't sort the weather for you! I would not hesitate to recommend them to any future house owner. Thank you both for everything xx

Perfect pet-carers and house-sitters

We were first-timers on Mindmyhouse and advertised for pet-carers over Christmas and New Year. We were surprised to receive a reply from America and now so pleased that we accepted Mike & Deidre’s offer to pet and house-sit. They are very reliable, practical and caring. Our three dogs and kitten were well cared for and they all clearly love Mike and Deidre. We returned from our trip to find happy pets, a very clean house and dinner in the oven. Mike and Deidre are great communicators both prior to their arrival and during our trip. We received regular up-dates and photos which gave us peace of mind. We would not hesitate in recommending this delightful and trust-worthy couple. Our pet-sitters are now our friends and we hope to see them again in the future
