We are an animal loving couple in our late 60s. We previously worked as a Police officer and Local government officer in the UK. We built our house 19 years ago, set in a beautiful wooded valley in the centre of Andros, with spectacular views. We have a large plot of about 1 acre, comprising of house, woodland and garden bordered by a stream, a most magical setting! Andros is a quiet island renowned for its beautiful walks and hiking trails in addition to lovely beaches and clear water. would occasionally like to return to the UK for a few weeks at a time to spend more time with our growing band of grandchildren. We are looking for a house sitters to take care of our animals and enjoy our house and island as much as we do.


The house was built in 2004, and consists of a 3 bedroomed house and 2 bed apartment. it also has a small well equipped Gym. We are sited in the village of Remmata, in a most beautiful green valley, with amazing views from all parts of the house. The style of the house is modern with central heating. We have satellite TV. Also recently installed high speed broadband. The valley boasts much wildlife and is a ideal spot for bird lovers. The island does not have much in the way of clubs and night life, although there are some good restaurants. It is however, perfect for anybody seeking rest and relaxation. An international driving licence is required. Car may be made available depending on circumstances. Local car hire is freely available and can be arranged at preferential rates. Because of the size of house and number of animals, this sit is best suited to couples.


For this particular sit, which is just over one month we would ask any sitters to be responsible for the feeding and exercising of 2 small dogs, and Lexi, our GSD for one walk per day. Also the giving of medication to older dog. There will be possibly some garden watering depending on the season (not winter sit) Good mobility is important as our terrain is quite hilly. Cats pretty self sufficient, just need feeding daily.

First, communication all the way around was very clear and timely.  The set up for the animals are convienent and easy! The dogs are so special. Lexi the shephard is just amazing; smart, obedient, sweet and you best pal, and a big baby. Just love her. Ronnie, is a small little happy go lucky ,easy going dog who just likes to hang out and be loved on. The cats are funny with the routine and warm up quickly. Chickens, (which we never took care of before )are super easy.Feed them twice, collect eggs, and they put themselves to bed and you just shut the doors. The dogs go with and Lexi gets excite because she knows you'll be throwing a stick for her.

The house is comfortable and well appointed. The front patio is just lovely and the views are hard to beat. Hanging at the house with the pets are enjoyable. Theprivacy is pretty great too.

The waters...just stunning. Blue green waters, clear and perfect. Beaches everywhere and the sunsets are just wow. We got there a couple days ahead of time to get the routine. Seems like a lot to do but it is organized and you get into an easy routine quickly.

Back to Sara and John...John will keep you laughing and they both are stratight to the point. They are easy going, kind, just easy to know and we are now friends. And for me, after being in their home and taking care of all the four and 2 leggeds, their family.

Just go, and you'll really get a feel for what true Greek living is like!
