About this sitter

We are a young (mid 50's) and active couple who took early retirement in 2014 to travel. We are very keen cyclists and we have a beautiful Motorhome that enables us to tour Europe to cycle in amazing places like the Alps, the Pyrenees, Sierra Espuna etc. We currently spend our winters in Goa and our summers touring Europe however we are keen to embrace new countries and new experiences. We are animal loving, non smoking, very clean and organised people. When we are not travelling we have a lovely bungalow in a tiny English village which we are currently renovating. We don't have any great expectations from house sitting other than the chance to meet more people and experience new places. When we are not cycling we love to read and we are both currently learning to speak Spanish. I have been writing a blog of our adventures for the last 6 years which gives a good insight in to our lives so I have included the link with this listing.

Why they want to house sit

To meet new people and experience new places.

Their experience

We are experienced house-sitters and have thoroughly enjoyed our house-sitting experiences. In addition to the testimonials provided we are happy to provide references if required from former work colleagues, former employers or from friends.

What can they bring to the assignment

We are flexible and adaptable with a lot of common sense. We don't panic easy and we are very good at problem solving when needed. We are very house proud, both when at home and when we are touring in the Motorhome and we like to keep everything clean so if the house sit requires cleaning up after pets this is not a problem and we will maintain your property to a very high standard.

Testimonials

Kind, Careful & Dedicated House and Animal Sitters!

Kerry and her husband Glynn house-sat for us for a week and took incredible care of our chickens and cats. They were very attentive in making sure that they had all of the care instructions, and even sent us update messages during the week. We arrived home to a house that was even cleaner than we left it, as well as some delicious home-made lemon curd and vegan blueberry bars. Yum! I fully recommend Kerry and Glynn as house-sitters. I only wish they could come back and sit for us when we take our next trip! Thank you Kerry and Glynn!

Thoughtful, practical & caring couple.

Kerry and her husband Glyn were very enthusiastic in wanting to give as much care and attention to PJ my dog and the two cats as they possibly could. I left very reassured that they were all being well looked-after and more importantly, that both Kerry & Glyn thoroughly enjoyed being the pets' carers for four days. They were willing to come a day before to see how the routines worked and to get to know each animal's personalities, likes & dislikes etc. Glyn & Kerry were also most respectful of all the house routines and left everything looking neat, tidy and clean. They even let the next door neighbours know when they were leaving and had kindly stayed on longer than expected because of my time-table. I would recommend this couple for pet-sitting anywhere, a likeable and well-travelled pair.
