About Us

We are a friendly couple who have recently taken early semi-retirement, we still run our own consultancy business but only require a laptop and an internet connection to do this. We are responsible, practical, non-smokers who have lived and worked in numerous countries including Bermuda, India, Czech Republic, Holland, Portugal, Hungary, Poland and France over the course of our careers so are well used to adapting to new environments and finding our feet in new countries. We enjoy looking after pets and would treat it as a privilege to share your home with your pets.

Why we want to house sit

As we are semi-retired we have decided that now is the time to indulge our passion for travel and house-sitting allows us to experience new environments and cultures that might otherwise be impossible.

Our Experience

We are homeowners so are used to caring for a property and dealing with any unexpected issues. Sarah is a qualified Royal Horticultural Gardener and I am very practical and handy around the house so any gardening or odd jobs would not be a problem. During the last 6 years we have house sat for 20 home/pet owners on other house sitting sites. Our reviews can be viewed at house-and-pet-sitters/united-kingdom/england/poole/l/46064/   Unfortunately House Carers blocks the pointer unless I use instead of a period/full stop.
