More information

We are a couple in our thirties. I'm British and my wife's French. We are both lucky to be able to work from anywhere with an internet connection. I'm a web designer and my wife is a translator and writer. We love travelling and discovering new places. We returned from two years in Malawi in the summer of 2016 -my wife was teaching French and Spanish there in a British School. It was our passion for hiking that brought us together when we met walking the Camino de Santiago. I have a long history of house sitting which stretches back to my early twenties. I especially enjoy long walks that allow me to discover new territories. My wife is a triathlete and also loves the outdoors. We love pets, so we find it very rewarding to take care of other people's (we have none of our own, nor any children). I also enjoy gardening, particularly the physical exercise it offers as well as chopping logs! We are both non-smokers.

Russell and América stayed 1,5 weeks in my house and took care of my death cat Jason. The first night I was still there. They have the talent to makes themselves comfortable in the house while not overtaking (while is was still here). I appreciate this very much. Our communication before, during and after the stay was super easy. And after 1,5 weeks my house was as I left it. I would really like to have them in my house again. And I think Jason too.

America and Russell took very good care of our Marlo and the house during our 6 month absence.
After our cat got injured by some neighbour cat fights, they took him to the vet and applied recommended medical treatments.
The communication was very easy and nice. We felt comfortable as during all the time, they kept us always up-to-date.
A very nice habit of America and Russell was to share current photos of Marlo via WhatsApp from time to time. It was always a great pleasure for us to receive these photos along with a brief chat.
When we came home, we found the house as we left it - everything in right place and good order.
Most of all, we found our cat happy and looking very well.
We got to know America and Russell as extremely responsible, reliable, cat-loving and friendly persons and we would entrust them our cat and house anytime again.
Dear America, dear Russell, many thanks for everything and all the best for your future!

Russel et America ont été absolument parfaits à tout point de vue. Ils se sont parfaitement occupé de mon petit chat, ont laissé la maison dans un état impeccable, ils m'ont envoyé des photos et des vidéos très régulièrement et m'ont même donné quelques conseils pour que je prenne encore mieux soin de lui.
Je recommande très vivement ce couple adorable.

Avec un peu de retard je voudrais remercier Russel et America pour toute l'attention qu'ils ont donné à Casper notre chat cheri que nous leur avons confié pendant 5semaines .Il a été dorloté et a même fait des câlins avec eux dans leur lit!????Nous avons eu des nouvelles et des photos tous les deux ,trois jours ce qui nous a énormément rassuré car c'était la première fois que nous avons fait appel à votre site ! Nos tortues ont également été gâtées.Russel a arrosé les fleurs et entretenu la pelouse avec bienveillance. Un super repas nous attendait a notre retour!!Nous les recommandons pour la suite de leurs housse sit.

Nous avons eu l'immense plaisir d'accueillir Russel et América dans notre maison. Nous sommes parti l'esprit tranquille. Ce sont de personnes merveilleuses et soucieuses du bien être de nos animaux ainsi que de la propreté de la maison. Je recommande vivement ce couple si sympa. Je les accueillerai à nouveau avec grand plaisir.
Merci encore pour tout

America et Russell ont veillé sur nos animaux d'une façon professionnelle. C'est grâce à leur compétence qu'une otite de Dian a pu être soignée rapidement , tout retard aurait eu de graves conséquences.
America nous envoyait des comptes rendus tous les 2 jours avec des photos de nos animaux heureux , souvent près de Russell, cela ne trompe pas !
Si nous repartons longtemps nos animaux seront heureux de les revoir!
Nous recommandons vivement ce couple charmant.

Russell and America completed a very good house sit for us. They cared for our long haired cat, ensuring she was groomed daily, looked after the garden and plants, cooked us a meal on our return and would most certainly highly recommend them as a house sitting partnership.
