About this sitter

We are a couple in our early 50s. I previously worked for the RNLI at their training college in Poole, Dorset as a computer network support manager. We love touring in our camper currently. We have had many animals in our care from horses, dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits, ducks, goats, geese and more. We have had house renovation experience in Spain, including gardening, painting, decorating and tiling. We come with 3 very friendly, house trained small none shedding and none allergenic dogs. A poodle, a poochon and a shih-tzu who love any sort of living creatures.

Why they want to house sit

We currently have a desire to see new places throughout europe and like adventure, people and a change of pace.

Their experience

Yes. My wife has worked as a live-in carer for several older ladies, including looking after their property, shopping and organising maintenance.
I have experience with gardening, brick laying, tiling and of course computers.

What can they bring to the assignment

Extensive experience and a mature respect for another persons property and pets.

Testimonials

Capable, reliable house sitters.

Elaine and Pete helped me out at late notice when another sitter let me down. They are a very capable couple - they looked after 2 ponies, 3 dogs, a cat and hens and took it all in their stride. They left the house clean, tidy and mended! A lovely hot meal was waiting for me on my return. I would definitely recommend them.

Highly recommended

Pete y Elaine are very calm y friendly. Their dogs are very well behaved y also friendly. We were able to spend time together before y after the sit y shared some meals, Pete cooks a lovely vegetarian curry :) Both of these people are very kind y generous, they kept the place beautifully clean and tidy. We only wish they could sit during the summer months.... But we fully understand it is too hot in Spain for many during summer ;) that is why we prefer to get away then.
