What is the most important aspect for you when you entrust your lovely home to house sitters? Peace of mind, perhaps? For us too. When you are away on your travels you want to know that the home on which you have lavished time, care and money is being looked after with similar attention and love. The same for your beloved pets; they are part of the family and you want to know that they are in the care of like-minded people. 

Well, that's exactly where we come in. We are Robin and Terry Smith. We are a retired, active, non-smoking couple, married for forty four years now. We are home-owners ourselves, so we know how much your property means to you. We are experienced house sitters.

A few brief biographical details: 

Robin - sixty nine years old, retired linguist/translator, worked for Government Communications Headquarters for twenty years. Later NHS hospital administrator. Languages spoken; English, French, Spanish, Russian, German. Keen on aviation/flight, animals, reading history, languages, travel, DIY. Experienced in swimming pool maintenance. 

Terry (my wife) - sixty five years old, retired physiotherapy assistant and swimming teacher. Worked for NHS for ten years with people with people with physical and learning difficulties. Keen on travel, animals, family, gardening, cooking. 

Why are we worthy of your consideration as house-sitters? We think we tick all the boxes, as follows: 

  • Like hard work (really!)
  • Retired and fit and healthy - non-smokers
  • Trustworthy
  • Fully flexible with no commitments 
  • Love animals of all kinds
  • Love to travel and meet different people
  • Private incomes, therefore money is not a motivation for us
  • Various foreign languages spoken

But the most important thing to us? To feel, in retirement, that we can still contribute meaningfully to society and provide a useful service to others. If you decide to use us, we promise you won't be disappointed!
