This family were a friendly tidy happy family of authors, that love being outdoors in nature exactly as described in their profile, Their children were super polite, a pleasure to be around. This was a huge relief as we had never tried having house sitters before. They took excellent care of our dog, their kids especially loved our dog. David was extremely handy and hands-on with anything we needed help with(Painting, trimming back trees, fitting fences, general DIY, cutting up logs/firewood). They are consciences with the off-grid lifestyle and they were knowledgeable with the solar panels and battery systems also the generator. Were able to take care of the pool and the daily maintenance it requires. They had their own car which was a great bonus. They were quiet and looked after the place as though it as their own. Looked after the garden, vegetable patch and trees, even grew a fair amount. Great communication about the property and our dog. They left our home in great condition and I would highly recommend them as trusted house sitters.

Laura Helen, David and children loved their time staying at our remote farmhouse and spent a lot of time sorting the garden and keeping the house clean and tidy for visits from estate agents and helping with viewings of the property. A good friend of ours visited regularly and always found the property in a good and clean condition and found the children well behaved.

Laura and her family have adjusted well to some pretty trying conditions in our house this winter. They have kept things clean and cosy, made friends with the neighbours and made it their temporary home.
The children have been active with feeding duties and have not been any kind of trouble. They are polite and well brought up children who enjoyed the open air and freedom the farm gives.
All in all this was a very positive experience

Louise Meadow: This was my first experience using a house sitting site, I was very nervous, but I very quickly built trust in Laura and her beautiful family, they took good care of my house and gardens for months while I travelled, when I arrived home, they not only made everything tidy and wonderful, they even refilled all the basics ready for me with a welcome home balloon and thank you card. thank you children for my pictures.

Testimonials

A great family effort!

Laura, David and their two children Tyler and Tegan came to our house in the countryside of Hungary to take care of the place, our 3 cats and 2 donkeys for the winter months in 2021/2. The place is quite remote as it sits on a bad road and for winter it is quite a challenge. The family were not perturbed by that and took it all in their stride. Tegan (12) and Tyler (9) were on donkey duty for the winter and did a great job with them. We noticed that they both became much more social with the contact and love they received from the kids. So we were very greatful for that. Laura and David were super easy to communicate with and managed all the various bills and property needs in a transparent and clear manner. They also did a few odd jobs around the place and painted, cleaned and tidied up. They also planted some veggies in the garden to give us a head start for the summer. Unfortunately they also had to deal with a very old cat who died during the winter. We were happy that Shpongle received the love and attention he needed in his last months under their care. On our return, the house was clean and the shed re-organised (amazing , as it was a disaster when we left:)) ) Everything was in good order. They even left us a pile of wood, cut and prepared for our return. We would recommend the family to others who need long term house sitters as they are for sure very trustworthy, clear and caring. Thanks you guys very much!

Lovely family

We left our little house in their capable hands, and all was perfect. We don't have any pets to look after, but they survived a summer in Jaén - at temperatures hitting over 40, that's pretty amazing! Unfortunately I didn't get to physically meet them, though plenty of virtual contact, as I was working in the UK, but Serafín assures me they are a super family, and we wish them stacks of luck with their new adventure. Thank you so much!
