About this assignment

We have some busy weeks coming up in May and July and need a loving pair of hands to help out .. if you want to come over and hang out .. where we have a home office ..a busy life .. grown up kids in and out ,,, house guests in and out .. husband in and out .. it would be just great .. to have a lovely pair of hands - car available. A confident organised kind person/family living in our home when at times we will leave you to it. You must be alert, tidy and thoughtful to your surroundings. This is a no fee position but you will have a glorious home for the time in East Anglia and a great song to sing at the end of the month!
Check out the Suffolk Coast - you will have a wonderful time.
Around 6th May to 3rd July (you are welcome to stay when we are here)
6th May for around four days (sole charge)

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

To look after a small delightful dog (who is a tad older than the photo) and 3 low maintenance cats and keep the dishwasher going would be fab! - for the dogs find time for walks and fun .. just covering where we are not .......!

What are the good features of the property and location

We live in the most lovely house ... 7 miles from the sea - in East Anglia, where the clouds are big & white and the sky is so very blue - I am an interior designer so it could be a lovely treat if you love colour & detail. Ideally we would meet or skype before the actual event or chat lots on line.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

You REALLY will need to drive to enjoy being here unless you have a great bike (if you have a clean license we can help with a car) - as the newsagents is a mile or so away - of course you can walk .. the dog is just lovely but will run away if you leave the gate open ... but then running round East Anglia is wonderful .. its a village house, so be prepared for spiders, space and the post man bringing a pocket full of dog biscuits! You will need to be part of the family and not afraid of being self motivated.

Testimonials

Testimonial from Enid & Steve

Jules & Peter are a lovely welcoming and friendly couple who have an absolutely beautiful home and garden. On first meeting they went to great lengths to make us feel welcome and at home, indeed part of the family. You cannot be in any doubt about their sincerity. Their lovable pets - terriers Aggie and Walter and cat Storm who we have looked after many times and are all characters and no trouble at all to care for. We would confirm that anybody chosen by them are extremely fortunate. Willing to give a verbal reference. Enid & Steve Holden Sitters

An amazing introduction to house sitting and not enough space to say it all!

Any reservations I'd had about house sitting soon disappeared with my first house sitting in beautiful Suffolk. Julia and Peter were so welcoming, cheerful and friendly. I was immediately made to feel at ease in this colourful and peaceful house, with everything you need for a very relaxing stay. Aggie and Walter were delightful dogs who were so calm and well behaved that I often took them out with me! There are so many places to see within a short distance and with no traffic jams, making a very pleasant change. If you are chosen to house sit here, you certainly won't be disappointed.
