Scottish on Travels

52, Radiographer

57, Engineer

We are both professionals (radiographer and engineer) working and travelling around Australia and over to N.Z where my son works as a teacher and have a daughter back in Scotland finishing Uni.

We love to look after pets and homes whilst between assignments.

We have always had dogs cats hamsters tropical fish and marine fish so no problem looking after your pets.
We are clean and tidy and don't mind doing a bit of work round the house and in the garden.

We can supply Aussie and Kiwi references.

I was very fortunate to have Viv and Joe look after my home and fur babies. They were very easy to deal with by phone and email/text prior to the sitting and kept me up to date regularly while I was away for the 5 weeks. When I got home my fur babies were happy and healthy, the house was very clean and tidy and on top of this Joe had fixed my oven and clothes line, and cleaned my roof gutters! Would definitely recommend Vivian and Joe to anyone looking for sitters!

We really cannot speak more highly of Viv. She's totally outstanding and her commitment to our pets Rosie ad Skip and Trixy was truly second to none! They were loved and well cared for and in the case of our dogs Rosie and Skip, enjoyed regular walks Viv ensured our peace of mind whilst we were away with regular texts/ calls regarding the well being of our pets which was very reassuring Viv is also very tidy and left the apartment in a spotless condition. We came to view Viv as a ... MORE

Thank you for your lovely review guys. I hope you have all been safe and well in Wales. I've had to hang out in Noosa, Oz of all places - sunshine and blue skies everyday. Kisses and hugs to Rosieskipntrixy x
Viv stayed in our home for three weeks looking after our cat Phoenix and taking care of the house. We met her before leaving and were really happy to leave things in her hands. She is friendly and responsible and kind. It was an added bonus for me that she lives close to where I grew up in Scotland - her beautiful voice made me feel very 'at home'. Viv took great care of everything and sent us updates on Phoenix with photos. She responded really quickly when I wrote asking her to do an ... MORE

Fantastic couple. Had no concerns about leaving Ruby and Izzy in their hands. Got regular messages from them about the animals. House was immaculate when we got back and Joe had even cut the grass. The plants had all been looked after as well. First class. No qualms about recommending them at all.

Thanks ...it was a pleasure.
Vivian and Joe are a lovely couple who did a wonderful job at looking after our home. The house was immaculate on our return, so nice after a long flight. They were able to stay an extra night when our return flights were delayed and kept in touch whilst we were away. They took great care of our little dog who took to them straight away. They spoilt him with two walks a day and even bathed him. We would definitely use Vivian and Joe again and highly recommend them to look after your home.

Excellent house sitters! Vivian and Joe were very kind, considerate and clean. They took amazing care of our two schnauzers and left our home clean and tidy. We highly recommend them for your house sit.

Thanks Leo. It was a pleasure!
No rating We found Joe & Viv to be really nice people with great house sitting skills, our dogs were really well cared for and everything we asked of them was fulfilled, I'm sure our house was cleaner when we got back than when we left!! Thanks

Thanks Tim. It was a pleasure. If you require a sitter again let us know we will be over again to visit our son.
Joe looked after our house while waiting for his wife to join him in NZ. He was wonderful. Leaving our home with a house sitter for the first time was a little nerve wracking but I needn't have worried at all. Joe communicated clearly with me before and during our house sit easily and nothing was a problem at all. He kept our cat,dog and mouse company and walked our dog daily. We came home to 3 very happy animals. The house was left spotless and Just how we left it for Joe. I would have ... MORE

Joe and Viv took great care of our house and pets for 6 weeks. The animals were very happy when we returned and the house and gardens were very tidy. I am very happy to recommend them to anyone wanting a sitter. Excellent prompt replies to messages too. They were great!
 
JOANNE (Henderson Valley North Island, Dec 2018 - 1 month 2 weeks) From Kiwi House Sitters
This was a first time using a house sitter so we weren't sure what to expect. Joe was fantastic. He kept in touch while we were away so we knew all was well and we came home to a spotlessly clean house and very happy pets. I have no hesitation in recommending Joe and hope to have him housesit for us again in the future.

No rating Vivian and Joe were happy pleasant people and I liked them straight away... we came back from our holiday to find our home clean and tidy and everything in place. Our beautiful cats were content so I was happy. Thankyou Vivian and Joe.

No rating We loved having Joe and Viv housesitting, and so did Rufus! The house was beautifully clean, gardens looked after and Rufus looking very happy. We enjoyed meeting them, and would recommend them highly, and hope to have them back.

No rating I was very fortunate to have Joe and Liv look after my home and pets for a week over Xmas. They were truly amazing, and I felt my home and babies were in great hands. I returned home to an immaculate house and garden and Joe even did a few odd jobs around the house! I would happily have them back to stay if they are available and can't recommend them enough :-)
HEATHER (Beach Haven North Island, Jan 2018 - 1 week) From Kiwi House Sitters
No rating Thank you so much Viv and Joe for taking such good care of my furbabies (2dogs and 3cats). Viv and Joe would give me updates every few days so I was able to rest easy knowing my animals were taken care off. We I arrived home the house was so well look after and my furbabies were very happy and healthy. I think my dogs were really sad to see them go as they really enjoyed the walks and all of their attention (not having to share it with a baby) I couldn't have asked for better sitters and ... MORE
