“ The golden couple ”

Sit Dates Nov-24-20 - Jan-9-21 Homeowner MorkyMindy, Member Since Sep-30-20

Location Rooskey Ireland

It was our first experience with housesit,  and we definitely got the golden couple!

A very big Irish Thank you  to Karenlee and Gary for looking after our house, dogs and hens with such a loving care, as if it was their own.

The very first day the dogs took to them as if they knew them all their life and are still looking for them... and their treats. Karenlee used some of her many talents to knit lovely winter coats for them ( and hats for us), and Gary gifted us with beautiful sketches of Mork and Mindy, which we will treasure. 

On our return, they had a perfecf dinner ready for us. The house was immaculate,  cleaner than we left it, and so was the car! The fridge and food presses were filled. Even the chicken coup was cleaned out. They certainly went the extra mile!

We were in communication all the time with photos back and forth, and keeping in touch such like old friends, which we will remain from now on. Our home is their home. Looking forward to having them back in Ireland in the near future. 

We highly recommend Karenlee and Gary as perfect housecarers in every way. You' ll have complete peace of mind in leaving all your most precious possessions in their caring hands.

John and Gen,  Mork and Mindy
