We are a professional couple with two children living in Cardiff, UK. We have two dogs (a Labrador and a Pug pup), rabbits and fish.
We received many responses to our advertisement for a house sitter but really liked Rob, Tracey and Makai from their first email. We communicated with them via email and Skype before formally agreeing the sit.
Rob, Tracey and Makai stayed in contact with us prior to the sit and then came to our home the night before we left on our holiday to meet us, our pets and visit our home. We spent a lovely evening together and heard amazing stories of their travels. For anyone with concerns about having a child house sit, do not worry at all about Makai. He is a charming young man and both of our children adored him.
We returned after our holiday to two very happy and healthy dogs who had even been bathed and very well cared for rabbits and fish. Our Lab has been stressed in the past from staying with other people when we have been away but he was totally relaxed on our return having been so well looked after in his own home.
Our home was absolutely spotless on our return with freshly made up beds and laundered towels. Rob, Tracey and Makai had even bought essentials like bread and milk which was a lovely touch.
I am more than happy to provide a reference upon request and would love to welcome Rob, Tracey and Makai back to Cardiff in the future.
