Amazing house-sitters

Holly and bob are very friendly and very experienced with house-sitting and are extremely experienced with animals. They both took excellent care of our home, we came back home to exactly how we left it, We have a few snakes, a parrot, fish and two dogs , one of whom can be a bit nervous However she soon came out of her shell and both dogs were in their element with holly and bob. We got plenty of updates while we was away which made me so happy to see the dogs so relaxed and happy, Infact we nicknamed them traitors as they seemed so happy and relaxed with their new 'holiday mum and dad' Our parrot who doesn't like anyone else apart from me became friends with holly and had lots of cuddles. It's all very reassuring to see the animals happy and relaxed whilst we were away. The dogs absolutely adored bob! We came home and the dogs were so fussy to see us, but we're not wanting to leave bobs side 😂 the day after holly and bob left the dogs were going round the house looking for them, they miss them already ..... But they don't have long left to wait as it has been arranged for holly and bob to return in October to house sit for us again whilst we go away again so the dogs will be over the moon! And the parrot will definitely remember holly We hope we have found a regular house sitter with holy and bob, they are amazing You won't be disappointed if your thinking of contacting them! We appreciate snakes arnt everyone's cup of tea but holly and bob were not phased at all by them, and our fish were well looked after too. A pleasure to have our paths cross and hope we have not only found new house-sitters in holly and bob for the future but also new friends Thankyou for everything !!! Sam , Darren and the zoo!

Holly and Bob were great!

Holly and Bob have now sat for us twice (about 7 weeks in total). They were really great! They were very friendly, kind and reliable and looked after our two young cats Max and Socks extremely well, (in fact I don't think the cats realised we weren't there!). They fed them and played with them and ensured they were fussed over and cuddled when needed. We would recommend them without any hesitation to anyone looking for house/cat sitters. You won't be disappointed.

An amazingly caring couple that we were lucky to find

Holly and Bob are amazing people. Our dogs loved being around them and they looked after the house and garden flawlessly while we were away. They both worked from home using our internet connection and enjoyed life in the open countryside around us. They made friends with our friends in the local pub which was great for everyone. They kept in touch, sending us lots of funny pictures of their adventures and asking us for advise on what to do with specific plants in the garden. Every exchange on WhatsApp made us laugh! When we returned, the house was in a better condition than when we left! They were very careful with our 'stuff' and treated our house with respect. We are going away again, this time without Dougal and Lenny and we have already asked them if they would like to return. The dogs only spent a little time with them but they fell in love with each other! We would highly recommend Holly and Bob as house sitters. We will certainly use them again if they are available. We'd suggest that you book them early as they are based in Turkey and are in high demand.

Pet/Housesitters in Cappadocia

It is said that dogs are the best judges of character and from the way that our three large, rescued street dogs and one cantankerous cat responded to Holly and Bob it is clear that their credentials as great pet carers/house sitters have been firmly established. When returning home from travels it is always a relief to find that the house has been properly cared for and is as clean and orderly as when it had been left. This was the case when my husband and I returned from our recent summer vacation. The garden, too, had been well cared for and our house plants flourished under the care of Holly and Bob. We found the couple to be open, caring, honest and conscientious. They loved the dogs and the dogs loved them. We would have no hesitation in calling on them to look after our house and menagerie again in the future or recommending their services to others.

September/ October housesit.

Holly & Bob cared for our cat & two pet geese for three weeks. They are a lovely friendly couple, They kept in touch with us sending photos of our contented cat & geese. We were totally confident that nothing was a problem for them. Our house & garden received first class treatment, & everything was just as we had left it. We would highly recommend them to all house owners, & we are sure that your house & animals would be in safe hands. We are delighted that they are returning to housesit for us in December/ January. Phil & I look forward to seeing you then. Thank you.

Holly and her husband Bob recently house sat for us whilst we were away in NZ for 5 weeks. They cared for our cat and dog very well. They are a delightful young couple and conscientious, even cooking us a meal ready for our return. We hope that they will come again next time we are away.

House sit at Los Pinos Spain.

Holly and Bob are a delightful young couple who came to house sit for us. They were here for 3 weeks and took great care of our three dogs and a cat. They gave them so much love and attention and the boys were all very happy to be with them. As well as looking after them they watered the garden and re-potted some plants as well as caring for our home. A lovely couple who we would be happy to have house sit for us again.

Fun-loving and reliable couple

We were very happy with Holly and Bob's cat/house sitting. They are fun people, easygoing, and reliable. The cats were well cared for and we had no problems whatsoever. In fact, we like Holly and Bob so much that we hope they will come back next year!

Cat & House Sitter required/SW France

Holly and Bob are a lovely, sociable young couple and full of enthusiasm. They are animal lovers and were very good with our cats and chickens. They had little experience of gardening and seemed a bit overwhelmed by the garden. However they worked very hard and enjoyed the garden, especially the veg garden and look forward to having a garden of their own in the future. We would be happy to have them house sit for us again in the future.

House-sitters Holly and Bob Griffiths

Holly and Bob stayed in my property in Turkey for three months and I would be glad to have them back. They are a trustworthy couple who, while doing their own work and tasks, were ready to help out at the house as required. They are dependable and kept in touch with me throughout their stay. I look forward to them staying at my house again, but if they travel elsewhere I have no problem in giving them a big thumbs-up for any owner lucky to take them on.
