About this sitter

I have just retired after 41 years as a Social worker and my husband Brian is a retired cival servant. We are parents to twin sons who both got married in 2017. We love to travel and experience different cultures, experience different way of life, food, and sunshine. We love the outdoors, nature, swimming & walking dogs. Non smoker.

Why they want to house sit

We have 5 years experience of house sitting in France, Ireland and a wonderful opportunity to housesit in Washington DC and more recently Malta. We have loved the amazing places we had the opportunity of visiting and the wonderful homes we have stayed in; looking after other people’s homes, their beloved pets as we do our own with guenuine care, pride and respect.

Their experience

My husband has 5 years full-time experience in France when I continued to work in Northern Ireland and traveled back and forth which I absolutely loved. One of the sits was looking after a home in a village in the Pyrenees, absolute bliss. And numerous repeat sits with 3 couples in France, mainly looking after their 3 dogs in each location, Labrador’s and terriers which we absolutely love as we have a lab at home who is dearly loved but our two sons are in a position to care for her when we are travelling. We leave people’s homes as we have found them and I have references I can email which are very positive and full of praise for the care we have taken of all their dogs and beautiful homes.

What can they bring to the assignment

We have lots of energy, we are honest, reliable, dedicated. Mature couple who love peace and tranquillity love nature & beach but also the buzz of cities for a period of time. We would love more opportunities outside of France and Ireland.

Testimonials

“SIMPLY THE BEST” !!!!

Katie cared for my precious dog Cleo - and house sat my property for 2 months whilst I was abroad. From the moment I spoke to Katie I knew I had selected the right person - to say she is caring, organized, clean, thoughtful, wonderful, amazing - (all the adjectives under the sun) - is really an understatement - she is truly the most wonderful person who cared for my house and more importantly my Cleo - (better than I do) I came back to a home (that was cleaner than I left it - and my Dog missing her terribly !) - now you know when your Dog is sulking for the house sitter ???? they had the best time ever ! Katie kept in touch often sending me videos of their walks, swimming etc - nothing was a problem - she even dealt with all the Agency viewings as I had my house listed. If you can be fortunate enough like I was - to have Katie as your housesit/pet carer - then be rest assured look no further she is “simply the best” !!!!

Genuine, caring, pet and house sitter!

Katie flew all the way from Northern Ireland to Washington DC, US to stay at our apartment and care for our goldendoodle while we took a vacation. Katie is so warm and friendly, and we were lucky enough to spend a day with her before and after our vacation. She took wonderful care of our dog and apartment, and we knew our dog was in great hands with her! She took our dog on many walks each day and gave her lots of personal attention and care. Katie was very clean and responsible, and left our home even cleaner than we left it! We so appreciate Katie's help with watching our dog and loved getting to know her!
