About this sitter

Mary and I have recently retired and are now on a new chapter in our lives. Mary was an elementary school teacher and I was a financial adviser. We have a happily married daughter and no obligations that would impact our ability to live anywhere for any length of time. We are honest, trustworthy, and friendly. We are also in great health and love outdoor activities, especially walking. Thank you for considering us for your house sitters.

Why they want to house sit

My wife and I love to travel. We have spent more than 15 years working and living abroad and have travelled to over 30 countries. In retirement we have been to several countries including England, New Zealand and Australia. We will enjoy living on the local economy, learning the language a little, and taking care of your pets!

Once again a 5 star review. We were so lucky to have Mary and Floyd to care for our home and pets. They were super flexible, communicative, responsible, etc. Couldn't have asked for more. Such nice people and would have them back in a second.

I was fortunate to find such kind and responsible pet sitters for my Whippet dog Mandela. As it turned out Mandela was recovering from some major surgery to his leg when the petsitter dates commenced, a situation that occurred post the initial booking when he was in perfect health. For a period of one month Floyd and Mary made Mandela their priority and carried out my rehabilitation instructions to a tee. I was happy with how they also looked after my house and property. Thankfully they had a chance to visit the lovely Southern Highlands region in which I live located a few hours South of Sydney, NSW Australia. I would highly recommend them both for pet and house sitting.

It was a great pleasure to have Floyd and Mary look after my pets and my home. The report back from my two cats Merlin and Angel, and my two beagles Bosun and Bella are that they had a lovely holiday while I was away with lots of food, play, walks and loving care. In fact mum, when are you going away again so Mary and Floyd can come back! My home was not only immaculate when I returned from holiday it was well stocked with supplies so I didn’t need to shop for a few days. I really appreciated that. I also got many little surprises over the first few days of jobs completed around the house that I hadn’t mentioned. Thank you so much. I feel like I have met new friends that I would invite back anytime. Thank you Mary and Floyd for coming to stay. Enjoy your next adventures. Love Sue

Thank you so much Mary & Floyd we were so lucky to have such wonderful, kind, friendly, respectful people house sit for us. So kind to our animals, watered our garden, collected our mail, put bins out and in, folded our washing, washed their sheets. House left immaculate! So impressed, highly recommended. Hope you enjoy the rest of your time in Australia. We really appreciate everything you did for us.

Floyd and Mary were just brilliant. We could not have asked for anything more. It was wonderful to meet them before we left and we felt a bit sad that we couldn't spend more time with them since we really enjoyed their company. The four cats were so well looked after -- pampered and loved every minute of the day! They were plump and very happy when we returned. They had been brushed and cuddled and and made a real fuss of. It was such a relief to us to have the cats so well looked after. Mary and Floyd did a lot around the house and garden and everything was clean and very tidy on our return. Thank you to both of you for such a superb job. You were both exceptional.

We could not have asked for better pet/housesitters. We were away for 2 1/2 weeks and what could have gone wrong, went wrong. Our neighbor is building a new house and tore down the wall separating our property from his. This meant our dogs were no longer enclosed in our property. Floyd managed to get the contractor to put up a temporary fence during construction of a new wall. In erecting the temp fence, they broke our gas line and our water line. This meant Floyd and Mary were without cooking facilities. How they managed to remain calm under the circumstances is beyond me. They walked our three dogs twice a day and the dogs were freshly groomed when we returned. The house was clean and organized. I recommend them without reservation. Besides being capable, they are very nice folks.

Floyd was an excellent friend of our dear Cali while we were out of the country. In addition to a few updates throughout the week, we returned home to find a few ways in which Floyd went "above and beyond" to ensure the cleanliness of our house and yard. Needless to say, both our dog and house were in great hands during our absence. Thanks, Floyd!

Floyd and Mary looked after my house in Somerset England for 6 months and they were amazing. At the ready with checking my post, informing me of anything I needed to attend to while I was in Australia and generally keeping me very reassured and relaxed. When I returned the house and garden were so well looked after, clean and tidy it was a treat to move back in. I am determined to keep up the high standard of tidiness and care to my house that Mary and Floyd set. I would have them back in a flash and cannot recommend them highly enough. All my village friends were sad to see them go as they also fitted in wonderfully with the local community. If you have the opportunity to engage Floyd and Mary to care for your house, I recommend you leap at the opportunity. (I don't have pets but know they love animals.)
