We were let down by our regular house/dog sitter with only months before our holiday. Having planned it a year in advance and with family joining us in France from Australia, I was considerably distressed.
I was delighted to find the House and Home Sitters website and be able to speak to the owner straight away.
David was extremely patient while I frantically explained our predicament and immediately filled me with confidence that he would be able to find someone to meet our house and dog sitting needs.
It was only a few days before David called to tell me the great news that he had found a perfect sitter who was not only available for the dates needed but able to come and visit in advance too. I met Louise shortly afterwards (for my benefit!!) to go over the basics and as an introduction to the dogs too and I knew immediately we were in good hands.
Louise is just brilliant. From the first moment we met I knew that she was totally capable and exactly the kind of person we could leave in charge everything, knowing nothing would be a problem.
We live in a fairly remote location surrounded by fields and needed someone who is very capable and totally unfazed by the many problems that can arise from looking after our needy dogs and our old, quirky house. Louise was just the person and I had total confidence in her from the outset.
The dogs loved having Louise to look after them and really didn’t notice that we had left.
Knowing everything was in such good hands while we were away totally made our holiday and on our return everything was just as we’d left it and the house and dogs had been looked after impeccably.
As a family, we are all delighted with how honest, capable, discreet and totally reliable Louise is/was and we are delighted with the service provided by House & Home Sitters and would not hesitate to highly recommend them.
Thanks David, not for just sorting out our huge problem at short notice but in exceeding our expectations in all areas!
