First introductions with Tucker are always a breath holding moment because his initial greeting can be quite overwhelming. Phil completely took it in his stride and was even jovial as Tucker caught the sleeve of his jacket. Phil is an incredibly sincere and lovely gentleman with a great positive outlook on life. He took great care of Tucker and the house and we would willingly have him back in a heartbeat.

Two weeks in Edmondthorpe UK
Philip house sat for us for 2 weeks in June 2022. We have an old terrier and a puppy lurcher and 2 tortoises. We asked Philip to take care of them and also to water the garden. Philip is a delightful man who has lived an amazing life all over the world and on the seas. He is Rugby mad! He looked after everything beautifully and the dogs loved him. He very kindly drove us to the station extremely early in the morning and collected us when we got back which was hugely helpful. He watered the garden perfectly. Thank you Philip.

Gold Standard Sitter!
Phil has been absolute gold! From our first contact, Phil was responsive and committed to the dates. His calm, mature and kind nature filled us with reassurance that our home and pets would be in experienced hands. He was all-round amazing and we would happily have Phil to stay again and highly recommend him to anyone else looking for a tidy, responsive and caring house sitter. Thanks Phil!

One noble guy
He was a very noble (as the name suggests) gentleman, and very active as well... looking after my home and my two precious little dogs very well. Always answering my queries in regards to the dogs and keeping me updated as well as keeping the house in good order and clean. In summary, a reliable and trustworthy guy.

Phil is a treasure! He kept in regular contact before, during and after his stay at my French house, was friendly, helpful and completely honest in every way. He got on fantastically with the neighbours, looked after the animals conscientiously, kept the house immaculate and did all sorts of odd jobs around the place….. nothing was too much trouble. I can’t recommend him enough….. thanks Phil, you’re a star!

House sit from 2019
Phil is very fit and active and looked after our house and garden for several months in 2019 whilst we were away working. He integrated well into our local British expat community and we believe he enjoyed his time here, especially going to the many rugby matches in the area! The house and garden were kept tidy and we were happy with the house sit on our return.
