Wonderful Host and Animals

We just completed a several week stay near Faro, Portugal for Tatjana and Derek. They have a very large mix breed dog, Bailey, and a very small dog, Shorty, a chihuahua. Two recent rescue kitties, Otto and Fritz, round out the household. We loved this assignment. Tatjana is a charming, outgoing, easy-going person whom we felt like we already knew well from our calls and correspondence before arriving, and she truly loves animals. She and Derek went WAY above and beyond in assisting us to retrieve a package we had sent there that had gone awry in customs before we arrived. Their home is modern and comfortable, our accommodations were good, and the pool and extensive gardens are lovely, with a weekly gardener taking care of the outside. (And Derek has a killer TV package with many, many channels, series, and movies to watch.) Bailey stays mostly outside and is a very sweet dog, but he is large and young, and needs a strong hand on his walks. Shorty is a committed lap dog who rules the roost, and often gives the cats a run, making it clear he thinks they are interlopers. The kitties are fun and greatly entertaining and enjoyable. We were able to make delightful day trips to towns and villages with ancient centers and interesting histories all along the Algarve. Their home feels almost rural, but is only minutes from their town with all amenities, and just a few minutes more to a glitzy new mall with a huge IKEA. (Prices there were excellent). We enjoyed good instructions, good recommendations, and good communication while they were away. If you get a chance to sit for Tatjana and Derek, take it!

Hope to come back someday!

Tatjana and Derek were very kind hosts and I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to petsit and housesit for them! Shorty, "Le Gendarme", who has his own tiny real bed :)) kept me company all throughout the day and I just loved being around him, and Granny absolutely loves her belly rubs and looks at us with those beautiful eyes, we can only fall in love. The 5 turtles were very easy to take care of, and the house is just lovely, very tasteful and beautiful in every way. There is a big garden, a lot of beautiful flowers, it's just a wonderful place. Hope to go back some day!

Wonderful home, wonderful home owners.

Beautiful home in very central part of the Algarve. The dogs were a delight to look after, not any trouble and very well behaved. The owners were in touch well before I was due at their home and we maintained communication while they were away. They have also kept in touch since then and we have become firm friends. The home is in a quiet neighborhood and close to all amenities. I would be delighted to take care of the home and animals again if ever the opportunity arose and I was available. Highly recommended to any potential sitters.
