About time to write a testimonial ( Owner)

Since we have been using this site to find house and cat sitters for 10 years now, I thought it was about time to write a testimonial! Quite honestly this site has been nothing less than fantastic as a home owner with pets. I'm originally from NZ and live in The Netherlands with my partner and 2 children. We have had a sitter every year since 2009, in the summer and over Christmas/New Year. The amount of time for each trip has varied from 5 days to 5 weeks and each time we found a great sitter. Our first sitter Jane from NZ loved it so much she came back the year after. She became a good friend and we've kept in touch and visited each other several times since then. She was not the only sitter that came more than once. Last year, Corina from Australia came from where she is currently living in Spain and she's coming back this summer too. Other sitters were from Canada, Australia, America, England and Scotland. We always asked them to come one day before and most stayed one night after we returned. It's been great to spend time with them and wonderful to hear all the nice things they discovered to do while visiting. We often recommend the website to family and friends, however most Dutch people we know, think we're a bit weird to let strangers live in our house. However we love the win-win arrangement: our house and cats are well looked after and the sitters get a great holiday/new work environment. So thanks, MindMyHouse. We look forward to many more years of successful mindings.

...wanted to let you know how wonderful I’ve found the site ( Sitter)

Hi guys, I’ve just been reading through the changes on the site...and wanted to let you know how wonderful I’ve found the site, and how delighted to know you guys are Kiwi, or at lest Kiwi based. As a Kiwi myself, it’s always nice to know help is close at hand. Never needed it since using you in 2013, but it’s still nice to know. I really like the site, and given my personal background with Bookabach.co.nz before retiring to sit internationally, I can see how much work you’ve put into it. Well done, and thanks!
