About this sitter

Hello!

We're James and Helen, a married British couple in our early 30s / late 20s. We've been together 10 years and in that time we've traveled a lot together, living in Australia and Thailand. Last year we got our first place, we now call Wimbledon in South London home.

You'll find us to be friendly, conscientious, respectful, laid back and a very happy couple who will treat your pets and home as if they were our own. We both grew up surrounded with dogs and cats, and although our flat is a little too small for our own pet at the moment, we get so much out of being around, and looking after animals. So you can relax and trust that your pets will get plenty of fuss and be very well looked after while you're away.

We don't drink or smoke. We love walking in the countryside. I'm a keen cyclist and Helen loves gardening.

Why they want to house sit

We were introduced to housesitting by my parents and we can really see why they love it. We both love animals and to visit new places, and housesitting is the perfect way to combine these two loves, it's also a rewarding experience as you get to know the pets, the owners, and build up trust and connections that are beneficial to everyone. We're working from home from our laptops for the foreseeable future so we're free to travel and work anywhere with a half decent internet connection, so we really want to make the most of this time!

Their experience

We have housesat for animals big and small in various countries including looking after 2 spaniels in Tenerife, horses and chickens in rural Australia, and a Doberman in South London. All experiences we really loved. We've definitely caught the bug for housesitting!

We're new to this website as we've branched out from another well known site to look for more oppertunities to housesit. We have all 5* reviews on our other sight and I am happy to send these to you

What can they bring to the assignment

Our love for animals and experience in house sitting. We're fit and active so can manage multiple long dog walks every day if required, or mucking out stables, whatever is required!, and we are also happy to do a spot of gardening!

Testimonials

Excellent repeat house sitters

I was so happy that James and Helen could house sit again and look after the dogs while I was away for the weekend. I trust them completely and always come back to a clean house, happy, well looked after dogs and really thoughtful treats! Thank you again James and Helen, I look forward to seeing you next time!

Great, friendly house sitters

James and Helen are great house sitters, my dogs were incredibly happy with them. They are also lovely, friendly people and left the house in a good condition and felt totally trustworthy. I will certainly be welcoming them back in the future! Also great at communication!
