Retired Sea Captain and Postmistress wife, who is now a published travel writer, (both non-smokers) would love to help you by caring for your home, garden and pets.
We take our house-sitting responsibilities very seriously – just ask any of the owners we have house-sat for in the past 12 years. We are 100% reliable, and once booked we WILL turn up as arranged. We look after your pets as if they are our own, keeping them in their existing routine for food and exercise, playing with them and making sure they do not miss you while you're away. If you authorize use of your vehicle, it will be returned newly cleaned and with a full tank of petrol. Your home will be cleaned throughout and your garden neat and tidy. We want you to relax and enjoy your vacation, knowing that the things you care about and value are receiving the best possible care.
We are in our early sixties, active and love to travel. We are British, currently enjoying life in Spain after a wonderful 12 months housesitting in Australia and are always anxious to experience life in USA, Australia, Europe and the Far East.
We have owned boxer dogs, chihuahuas, cats, fish and a horse as well as assorted small and furry pets. We have lovingly enjoyed both large and small gardens and being early retired gives us lots of time to appreciate these pleasures.
We are honourable, trustworthy and responsible. We ourselves have a portfolio of rental properties, so we understand your concerns! Our aim is to ensure you and your possessions are fully cared for and that you have a worry-free break. We are happy to send photos, references and a deposit/bond. Our only requirement is high-speed internet access to enable us to work – Gill is now a renowned travel writer and has many books published on Amazon d o t c o m (just search under Gillian Birch) so you can see that we are what we say we are!
