Tim and Louise were recommended to me by a previous house sitter, who was not available at the time. We introduced each other on WhatsApp, followed up by their visit to my house, as they happened to be at a house-sit nearby. I was impressed by their knowledge, professional approach and their personable manner. I felt very comfortable to leave my house and cat Mimi in their care for three weeks. Their communication was excellent, the house was as clean or cleaner on my return, the cat was happy and even the grass was mowed. I would not hesitate to recommend Tim and Louise and I would be happy to talk to anyone about my good experience with Tim and Louise. I hope they are available for my next vacation.

Tim & Louise (with their grandson Tristin) were GREAT. Excellent communications with us. Looked after the house and our Girls (dogs) like they were their own. Katie Mae & Venus loved Tristin as we understand he just took them over. Thanks guys, it made our vacation much more enjoyable for us to know that our house and girls were in such great care. We would use them again in a heart beat.

A big shout out to Tim and Lou who looked after our house and furry creatures for 4 months while we enjoyed the sun! Came home to contented and bathed and brushed dogs, a clean house, steaks and wine❣ Everything was in perfect order and they handłed several unexpected happenings with professional and excellent care. Thanks and come back anytime 😍 😋 (Cunninghams, 2016, 2017, 2018)

Louise and Tim stayed in my home with my baby girl (cat), Chloe twice and both times I was able to enjoy my time away, while receiving daily updates and photos of my girl. They are fantastic people with so much heart. They are very experienced in house sitting/pet sitting and it doesn’t go unnoticed. Their experience is nothing short of comforting. Upon arriving home, my place was spotless and my girl was happy. I would most definitely welcome Louise and Tim into my home again, without any hesitation.

I was introduced to Tim and Louise through the Housecarers website. We connected online initially, followed by a telephone conversation, and then a face-to-face visit, as they were doing a housesit in the locale at the time. From our first phone call and subsequent visit, I was impressed by Tim’s and Louise’s warmth and personable manner. The moment they walked in the door, my very standoffish 13-year-old cat, Puddy, walked up to Louise for a back rub and I knew they were the ideal housesitters for me. I shared with them that Puddy was having some serious health issues at the time, and we discussed in a frank manner some scenarios that could potentially occur in my absence. In spite of that, they still expressed an interest in undertaking the housesit. As we visited, Tim and Louise shared some of their other housesitting adventures. They are well experienced in so many facets of caring for other people’s homes and pets, which made me feel very comfortable in booking their services.

Tim and Louise….they really are fantastic! Days before we were to leave for Italy a film company finally made up its mind that it wanted our house for a Christmas movie and of course I ran this whole new twist past Tim and Louise before we made any commitments. They were fine with it, and took better care of our property during the week of filming than we probably would have done ourselves….they were fierce apparently about proper security , and at the end had a detailed list of any items that had suffered damage, plus made sure that absolutely everything was returned to its proper place in the house. The cat had to go to a kennel so she wouldn’t stroll in at inopportune times during a shoot and they took dealing with her all in stride, no easy feat as she has only been in a crate once in 12 years and has never boarded out! The dog loved them, they were great with our tenants and all the film crew…in short, I wish they were moving in next door, not just passing through our lives for such a brief visit. We would certainly recommend them to ANYONE and feel very privileged to have had them look after our home and pets.

In a nutshell: Simply The Best!
Tim and Lou were delightful. So privileged to have met them. The dogs LOVED them and will most definitely miss them.
We are indeed very grateful for their loving experienced committed care of our Pack pet family members and for looking after our property so responsibly.
Tim and Lou are welcome to visit and/or stay, anytime!
In fact, we are keeping our fingers and paws crossed Tim and Lou will come back. Category: Friends!
We wish Tim and Lou all the very best and good health.
Our heartfelt Thank You!
Love from P.O.L.E.S.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Tim and Lou as house sitters. They exceeded all our expectations, looking after our pets and house faultlessly over a two week period. Tim and Lou are a really lovely couple who always seemed to go the extra mile. For example they spent a couple of hours with us the day before we left on holiday to familiarise themselves with the house and the pets routines. They were in touch over our holiday to let us know that everything was okay but also to check if we would like them to do certain jobs such as picking and freezing produce from our garden. They were very pet friendly, the dogs, cat and hens were all looked after wonderfully. And when we returned home Lou had freshly baked bread and prepared a meal for the family. As soon as we meet Tim and Lou we knew that our house and pets were being looked after by a trustworthy, dependable, kind and friendly couple.

We can not recommend these two highly enough. We left our two dogs (lab and cross breed both around 4) with them for 10 days whilst we went abroad. They took the dogs everywhere they went, to the beach, lakes, castles, long walks. The dogs had more fun with them then with us! They even did training with dogs and brought them treats. The house was also immaculate when we returned and also had done some shopping. They are both lovely thoughtful people, and if they are available you should definitely let them house sit. Hopefully, they will be able to do so for us again in the future.

Tim and Lou were absolutely brilliant. Clean house, fresh flowers, supper in fridge, happy cat and happy, nearly trained, dog. Ecstatic owners! We want them again.

What a fantastic couple – took Ruby everywhere with them – kept the house immaculate and left it in a perfect condition.
Excellent control of the dog from first encounter – strict but loving. Good company socially all-round perfect house sitters.
