About this sitter

I am a mature trustworthy person with experience of several house sits
both in the UK and abroad. Looking for lovely pets, friendly communicative home owners and great locations.

Why they want to house sit

A Law Graduate with a varied professional background. Since 2000 I have worked as a Tour Manager/Guide specialising in Italy. This has been seasonal work and during the winter months I have taken on house sits in various locations.

Their experience

I have carried out various housesits, looking after cats and dogs both in the Uk and abroad (see listed testimonials).

What can they bring to the assignment

I am well travelled so adapt to new places quickly. Originally from a farming background I have lots of experience and love of animals large and small so they would be well cared for and loved in the owners absence. I am also quiet and clean so the owners home would be well looked after and I'm unlikely to upset the neighbours.

Testimonials

Housesit in Newport, Shropshire

Jill took excellent care of my house and pets during my three-week absence. She arrived the afternoon prior to my departure in order to familiarise herself with the routines and meet the animals. We enjoyed a good conversation over an evening meal. Polly Pocket and Bubble were very relaxed when I returned home and my neighbours also said how much they had enjoyed chatting with Jill over the fence. The house was immaculate on my return and I would welcome Jill back at any time. I have no hesitation in recommending her to other homeowners.

Caring and communicative

Jill was very caring and considerate with our dog and our house. As this was our first time with a house-sitter she advised us on things we may wish to consider which we had not thought about (like leaving the vet details) and so everything went very smoothly. We came back and it was all in perfect order. Thank you Jill for being the perfect sitter!

Jill Coy is highly recommended

Jill was a great house sitter. We spent a nice first evening in a local pub, so got to know each other a little. Also, we arranged how often to be in touch before I left. Jill she cared for my cats for just under a month and they were both very happy and well when I came home. The house was tidy and everything in order. What more can you ask? I would certainly ask Jill again.

Jill came and house sat and looked after my 2 spoilt cats for 4 weeks while I was on holiday in India. The house was spotless and both cats groomed and spoilt whilst she was here.
