Viv and Ian

Ian and I have sold our home in July and are looking to do house sits for a few years. We have done previous short term house sits and have home owners willing to vouch for us if required. We are also able to provide Police Clearance Certificates.

Both of us are animal lovers (to the extent that we have gone vegetarian) and are happy to look after your pets as long as they are not aggressive. We have until recently always had either a cat or a dog with us and at times looked after other people's dogs in our home but right now we have no pets of our own. I enjoy a walk first thing most mornings so taking your dog with me would be no trouble at all.

We have condensed our business office into a chest of drawers on wheels and a laptop so that I can look after Ian's business anywhere we live. Consequently I am able to be home quite a lot for those who have pets that like company.

We are pretty easy to get on with. Neither of us smoke, I never drink and Ian very rarely.

We will treat your home and your pets with the utmost care and leave your home clean for your return.

Many thanks to Vivian and Ian, for house sitting for us for 2 mths and looking after our fussy small dog. It was a pleasure to return home to a lovely tidy garden and sparkling clean house, groceries in the fridge, lovely home baked cake from Vivian. We appreciated the fact that Ian fixed a few things around the house for us and washed our car etc. Such a lovely couple and we highly recommend them.

Thanks Nikki and Andy. We loved living in your beautiful home and are already missing little Oscar. What a delight.
Vivian and Ian looked after our acreage home as it was their own. We were welcomed home to a well cared for garden and the house was impeccably clean, better than what I left it. It was lovely for them to provide milk, bread, fresh fruit and veg for us. The things you want after a long trip. There were a few issues with the pool and they didn't want to bother us while on holiday so Ian went ahead and managed this. Ian also replaced our tap washers and provided advice on a plumbing issue. ... MORE

Vivian and Ian house sat for us over Christmas and New Year for 3 weeks. This was our first house sitting experience and I could not recommend this couple more highly. Our three needy cats were loved and well looked after. Our house was spotless when we returned and even had a fruit platter welcoming us home. Vivian kept us well informed and sent photo updates of our cats. Our experience with Vivian and Ian exceeded our expectations

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
