Merilyn was an excellent house sitter. We couldn't have been happier with her looking after our dog, Luna, and house. She kept in regular contact and sent us pictures of Luna regularly. She even did a little shop to ensure we had food when we got home! The morning after we returned home Luna went to the guest bedroom as if to check for Merilyn. Excellent in every aspect! Thank you Merilyn!

We were so grateful to have found such a friendly, open and experienced sitter such as Merilyn. From the moment she walked in the door both us and the dog fell in love with her. Communication was very open, our time restrained bombardment of a handover was easy, we had regular updates the whole time we were away, the house was immaculate on our return and the dog was clearly loved and attended to during our absence. We would not hesitate ever in recommending or even using Merilyn again for a ... MORE

If you need a hassle free worry free house sitter this lady is for you! Just what you want from a house sitter. Glad my Bob got to spend some time with a lovely lady while we were away, great with my Bob, great communication while away. What else can I say but totally recommend.

Merilyn was the perfect fit for our house sit. She loves animals and as she is a great communicator, she kept us up to date which reassured us that Ali, our border collie, was in the best of care. As they say "A picture paints a thousand words". We would highly recommend Merilyn. She is reliable, kind, honest, quiet and friendly with neighbours and left our home beautifully clean and tidy. Thanks you so much Merilyn for taking care of everything. You put our mind at ease so we could truly ... MORE

Merilyn was a great housesitter for my 16 mth old Labrador. She was transparent and trustworthy throughout her stay and communicated very well, keeping us informed while away. I would love to have Merilyn back to housesit again.
ANNA (Broadway Nedlands WA, Mar 2019 - 5 days)
Merrilyn is a fantastic house sitter! We had really good communication from the start with regular updates whilst we were away. We came home to a very happy pup, a lovely cl an house and a fridge stocked with essentials. We couldn't have been happier and can thoroughly recommend her to anyone needing a reliable, caring sitter.
DANELLE (Margaret River WA, Feb 2019 - 1 week)
The best ever, what a happy dog we came home to. Merilyn is all we could hope for to keep our home and fur child safe and we are happy to request her again.
CHRISTINE (Attadale WA, Feb 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
Merilyn was a wonderful house sitter! Daphne, our German Shorthaired Pointer seemed very happy in her company and well looked after. Merilyn kept us up to date by sending us frequent photos of Daph, which allowed us to relax and enjoy our time away. Merilyn left the house just as she had found it. We would definitely recommend Merilyn for a house sit.
SARAH (Hopetoun WA, Feb 2019 - 2 days)
Our dogs loved Merilyn and she them, I believe. We couldn't of asked for anything more. Thank you.
CHRIS (Roelands WA, Oct 2018 - 5 days)
Merilyn is an absolute gem and we are so grateful that she chose to live in our home and care for our two border collie dogs whilst we travelled for 3 months. Merilyn is trustworthy, warm and friendly, communicating openly with us both before, during and after the house sit. From the first conversation we had, she immediately put us at ease with her straightforward and open manner. She arrived early to ensure that she met both us and the dogs and had plenty of time to ask lots of ... MORE
BELINDA (Albury NSW, Apr 2018)
Merilyn recently house and dog sat for us. We were looking for a very caring person for our old dog and Merilyn more than delivered. Our dog was very well cared for: walked, feed and altogether indulged just like we would do. Merilyn keep us up to date with how everything was going and even sent a few photos of a very contented dog. Our house was left very neat and tidy. Even left a few provisions in the fridge for our return. Very thoughtful. We have found Merilyn to be an honest, caring ... MORE
