About this sitter

We are a conscientious and caring couple looking for lovely, peaceful places to stay and experience. The idea of seeing the world through new perspectives is something we are very keen to explore.

We are both freelance creatives for theatre and events, which means we are considerably flexible with our time. I am a scenic artist and Alfie is a carpenter/wood machinist.

Why they want to house sit

We're incredibly excited for the different opportunities this opens up.
I am particularly well suited for staying home and keeping pets company at the moment, as I am recovering from illness and less active than my usual job requires. Alfie is a lot more physical, so with us you have the best of both worlds! We both love nature, being outside and going on long walks. We also have a passion for new foods and cuisines from around the globe.

Their experience

We both love taking care of animals of all kinds, and between us we have a wealth of experience, with our own and caring for others' animals. Alfie even has a formal qualification in animal management.

We love house-sitting and are well-travelled and accustomed to living in different countries.

Testimonials

Talia and Alfie were ideal dog/house sitters. The dogs loved them from the day they arrived and were even a little disappointed when time came for them to leave. More importantly the couple took on tasks over and above those requested of them. They were really helpful on our local dog spay project and were happy to run errands. We couldn't have hoped for better. Highly recommended and fond memories. Thank you both.

Recomended house & cat sitters

July 11 – August 11, 2019 – Vientiane, Laos Talia and Alfie agreed to travel from the UK to Laos to take care of our hose and pets while we were away for summer break. They arrived a few days before we left, and Alfie joined a few dog walks to get familiar with the dogs and locations. I was glad they also agreed to take care of the vegetables garden, which was an additional task not discussed before they arrived. Although a few things (such as air-conditioning and toilet) happened to stop working just the first days they were here, both were undeterred to take care of house, garden and pets when we left. Over the course of about four weeks, Talia and Alfie proved to be excellent pet and house sitters. Alfie managed the challenges of handling the four active dogs very well, took them out for extensive walks, and they took excellent care of them. The animals - dogs, cats, and fish - were all in very good shape, and it was a delight to come back to our house with all of them very healthy and brilliantly looked after. The house and all around it was as we left it and all was in best order, and the vegetable garden was very well taken care of. They obviously followed the detailed instructions I left with them to the point. We very much appreciate all the care they give to all our pets, plants, and house. We are very happy to recommend Talia and Alfie as very reliable, trustworthy, modest and responsible persons for any house and pet sitting opportunities. Many thanks, indeed! Michael and family Vientiane
