Longer Term Experienced House Sitter, Cleaner, Gardener, Dog & Cat Lover, Clear DBS check 2020, References.

I do get booked well ahead, mainly repeat bookings, but currently I'm available from:

October 4th 2023 until 7th January 2024

18th February to 31st March 2024

30th June 2024 onwards 

I prefer longer term house sits whenever possible.

I undertake standard house/pet sitting for free, for non-standard house sitting (i.e. if you want a lot of jobs/work done that are not standard house sitting) I charge £15.00 per hour.

Please see my reference excerpts at the end of this profile. 

I will supply full character and house sitting references for verification along with a copy of my DBS (same as the old Criminal Records Bureau check) by on request.

Completely fit and highly active 74 years young self-help books author, educated, life experienced, male, single, straight, English, security minded, dependable, responsible, honest, flexible, comes with built in sense of humour.

I have been house sitting since 2008.

I have owned hotels and businesses, write self help books and I look after large, small and tiny properties.

I'm available for house, boat and pet sitting, security and light estate work.

I am a dog and cat lover and have looked after so many great friends.

I am a thorough cleaner and keep houses and gardens tidy.

I liaise with neighbours, handle mail, message forwarding and security (I am extremely security conscious) and whatever else you may require.

I have my own vehicle. I am a non-smoker. I do not drink alcohol. I have nothing whatsoever to do with drugs. I do not hold parties. I do not invite 'friends' to stay in your house while you are away.

I have completed a long term (76 weeks) house sitting position at Tadworth, Surrey over three years as well as many other positions.

In January 2017 I completed an 18 month job looking after and maintaining a large house and grounds to the west of Inverness followed by a 12 month job in the same locality.

In both of these positions I was involved in overseeing building works, renovations and more.

I have a clean driving license.

I'm old school so my word is my bond and I never break an agreement. Rest assured I will be looking after your interests at all times and I look forward to giving you peace of mind.

Kindest regards,

Jess Miller (Mr.)

Reference for Mr Jess Miller July 2021

To Whom it may concern,

Mr Miller has been a very reliable and honest house sitter for me at East Quarry Cottage, Perthshire for the last year. He has maintained the property, keeping the house and garden clean and tidy at all times,  including cleaning the house from top to bottom when he arrived.

Throughout the year he has cared for the garden and trimmed a 40m high hedge, which had grown out of control. He has mowed the lawn regularly.

Mr Miller installed a new log burner into the property. He chain sawed, transported and split wood for the burner.

The property was on the market to be sold and Mr Miller liaised with the estate agents and showed prospective buyers over the property on my behalf. He liaised with neighbours and has been clear and communicative at all times. I can happily recommend him.

For any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me:

‘Jess Miller was employed by me from 2016 to full year). I cannot speak too highly of his diligence and interest in the house and garden and his ever helpful and kind disposition.’
 Mrs.H.E.Alexander MBE, FRSA

'Jess came to our rescue in May 2019 when we were let down at the last minute by a Pet Sitter just before a 6 week holiday in Europe. Jess turned up exactly when he said he would and looked after our aging Staffie and our cat. He also cut the grass and kept the house immaculate until we returned. Jess went above and beyond when he also took the dog in to have her nails clipped whilst we were away. No mean feat given her over excitement at being taken out for the day! We would have no hesitation in recommending Jess for house and pet sitting, we came back and were very impressed with what he had done whilst we were away.' Graeme Wood, Cornwall, UK.
 'At all times I felt totally confident that our house was in good hands and that I could be sure to be find all in order on my return. I was entirely satisfied with Jess's services and have no hesitation in recommending him to others.' Julia Tweed, Surrey, UK July 2012
