More Information

We are Karen and Richard, a reliable and outward going couple who have been responsible homeowners for the last thirty years. We currently maintain three homes- one on a Greek island - and therefore fully understand the ups and downs of property maintenance.

Animals in general, and pets in particular, play an integral part of our lives. We have looked after a number of dogs of all ages, shapes and sizes for both friends and family. Richard is from a farming background and has been around animals all his life.

We are new to the house-sitting environment so do not as yet have a positive track record. However, we do have twenty years experience as Foster Carers. This has shown us the value of good communication at all times as well as how to react positively if an unforeseen problem arises.

We both have current enhanced DBS checks which will hopefully give homeowners complete peace of mind.

We are non-smokers, occasional drinkers and enjoy the outdoors no more so than when walking our dog Tia. Tia is a very calm, loveable and placid twelve year old cocker spaniel who will be joining us in our housesitting adventures.

We hope our profile is of interest to you and if so please contact us. We return to the UK from Greece on 24th October 2019 and therefore will be available from 1st November 2019 until the middle of January 2020. We also anticipate being available from 1st April 2020 onwards.
