Testimonials

Devon House-sit

We thoroughly enjoyed our house-sit for Jayne and Mike, they were both so welcoming and friendly. Gorgeous house and had it been better weather, we would have explored locally a bit more. The cats were naturally cautious towards us, but the parrot more than made up for their aloofness, she was so entertaining. We would certainly love to sit for them another time.

Great fun!

Jaynes house is located in a beautiful part of the countryside overlooking a Dartmoor river 3 mins walk from a great country pub. The house and grounds are stunning and very homely. Their cat Ashton warmed to us and was very friendly and cuddly. Charlie, the cat who lives in the shed, wasn't cuddly but she would come and sit with me whilst I fed the foxes, probably hoping for a bit of chicken! The parrots Houston (Whitney) and Rico gave us endless hours of fun singing and dancing and mimiking us. Jayne and Mike were friendly and left clear instructions. Mike's parting words were "don't worry about that, just sit and get yourself a glass of wine". We'll come back for this one again!
