More information

We are a semi-retired couple who enjoy travel and new adventures. We spent part of the year living and travelling in our sailboat. We love home and pet sitting as an off-season change of pace. We are very pet-friendly people. In the past we have volunteered our time at no-kill shelters and opened our home to rescued dogs and cats. Both Ray and I are comfortable with special needs animals. We have basic gardening and handyman skills, and will care for your home like it was our own.

Karen and Ray took care of my house and cats last weekend and I think they are the best house-sitters you can ask for.

When they arrived for the key handover they were very interested in how I like my cats to be taken car of, wanting to match my parenthood style.

They left the house absolutely spotless and and kept me informed the way I requested.

I highly recommend this couple as house-sitters!

We had a fantastic experience with Karen and Ray. If we could pick more than 3 badges, we would.

They were very prompt with their intentions and communication. Well organised and took all the stress away from us being away from our dogs.

Karen and Ray were invested in our location and our dogs and we suspect the dogs probably got more attention from them than us. They kept us informed on a basis that was determined by us but were more than happy to adapt if we wanted more or less.

They were conscientious, making sure everything was clean, tidy and replaced when we returned, and more than anything - they were an awesome couple to spend some time with.

We highly recommend! Thank you Karen and Ray!

This was our first house sitting experience and Karen and Ray set a very high bar. We received weekly emails, not because they felt obligated, but because they wanted to share their experience. We didn't have any pets, just house plants which were watered and cared for perfectly including some disease and insect problems. We returned to a clean home, with freshly washed towels and sheets, several meals, fruits and vegetables waiting for us. They left us notes with status about food, propane, plant watering and feeding, restaurants they liked and some suggestions for future house sitters. Besides house sitting we've established a wonderful friendship with like-minded people.

Karen and Ray were wonderful. We felt comfortable leaving our house and pets in their capable hands after an all too brief meeting. Our trust was not misplaced. They have a list of sensible questions to help them care for your household - we felt woefully unprepared in comparison! They sent updates and pictures of our content cats, and even applied the inhaler to an asthmatic kitty. When we arrived back home the house had been perfectly kept up and they had left a list of things done, when fish were last fed etc, Linens were changed even though they had an extremely early flight- very helpful as we arrived home quite late. I recommend them highly, and hope to arrange another house sit with them. 5 Stars!
