“ Jean's the best! ”

Sit Dates Jun-22-22 - Jul-20-22 Homeowner VintageVallejo, Member Since May-12-22

This was our first experience with a HouseCarers housesitter. Jean was excellent, taking care of our home, garden, and two big dogs for a month. She communicated proactively from the get-go and sent us cheerful updates during her stay. She is flexible, conscientious, thoughtful, friendly, easy going, thorough. Not only did she take good care of our garden and indoor plants and lavish love and activity on our dogs, she befriended our neighbors, left our home clean and tidy, and even stocked our fridge with groceries for breakfast. We had a great experience with Jean!

Jean is a real Gem!  Jean housesat for me in Sacto for almost a month while I was away in Europe.  She kept in contact with me with pictures and updates and was an active, loving companion to my 2 large dogs and elderly cat.  I returned to my home that may have been neater than when I left it and I felt confident and good to leave my precious fur family in her care, not easy when gone for a long time and far distance.  She also watered my indoor and many outdoor plants :)   I would not hesitate to have Jean back again for my next vacay!


“ Peace of Mind ”

Jean is a lovely and reliable person who took great care of my finicky old house, and my even more finicky old cat, Sparky, during a ten day trip out of the country.

I came home to a happy cat and a house that was cleaner than when I had left it.

I never had any worries while I was away, and plan on having her house- and cat-sit again in the future, so I happily recommend her to anyone who is looking for a dependable house-carer!

“ Pets or B&B guests - no worries with Jean on the scene ”

Sit Dates Sep-24-21 - Oct-27-21 Homeowner BoqueteCliffHouse, Member Since Apr-21-18

Location Boquete Chiriqui Panama

My husband and I have had many house, pet and B&B sitters over the years and we can honestly say that Jean is in our top TWO.

We were able to enjoy our vacation with no worry whatsoever about our B&B. I did not have any bookings when Jean applied, however she rose to the occasion when 2 different parties booked during her stay (and got rave reviews from the guests).

It was wonderful to return to a clean, orderly home and Jean had even restocked the fridge, so we didn’t have to run out and shop immediately (didn’t expect the Haagan Daz - thanks, Jean!)

Adventurous people the calibre of Jean are exactly why we use housecarers.com whenever we need an honest, dependable, ambitious house sitter or B&B host.
