As Safe As Houses

63, Retired

63, Retired

We both enjoy travel and meeting new friends. We have always had pets of our own and we look after family and friends pets when they are away on holiday.
With us looking after your home or home and pets you can travel and enjoy your time away and not worry.
We are very hands on when it comes to fixing problems should they arise .
2022 was our first year of house sitting and it was everything we thought it might be and more. We completed 5 house sits in 2022 and this year we've completed 12. We're booked up to the end of this year and we've also got 8 bookings for 2024, 3 of which are repeat sits.
We are an honest, friendly, caring retired couple with grown-up children and grandchildren.
We love to see new places and have travelled abroad extensively but we realised we had not visited so many areas of the U.K. There are still lots of places we have never been to and are looking forward to visiting new places, meeting new people and caring for their pets.
We are non-smokers and enjoy the outdoor life. We love walking, gardening, cooking and spending time with our family and friends.
We are happy to keep in touch with you over WhatsApp etc photos/videos to reassure you all is well whilst you are away.
We're home owners ourselves and would respect your property like we do ours.

Another fantastic sit! If you need house and pet sitters and they are available, book Ian and Susan! Our dog Reuben absolutely loves them and they spoil him rotten. He is so pleased to see them when they arrive and has the best time while they are looking after him. Ian & Susan take fantastic care of our property and treat it as their own. This is the 3rd time they have sat for us and we are lucky enough to have booked them again….twice in 2024, we cannot recommend them enough. We came ... MORE

Thank you for the lovely review. We love looking after Reuben he's such a gentle giant. Looking forward to seeing him again next year.
Amazing again! This is the second time that we have had Ian and Susan care for our dog Reuben and our house. We (especially Reuben) are very lucky to have met them, they are perfect house sitters - so much so that we have booked them again for October and will be trying to convince them to come again in 2024! They really spoil Reuben and he just loves them to bits. Thank you both so much! Ian, Portia, Arthur, Grace and Reuben x

Ian and Susan are friendly, thoughtful, considerate and helpful. We chatted on FaceTime first and knew that we were going to like them. They arrived the day before we left for 4 weeks and they wanted to understand exactly how to look after our house, gardens and pets. We were able to leave in complete confidence that all would be well. They really went above and beyond our expectations though, leaving us a meal in return, weeding, potting on seedlings, tidying and even mending a leaking pipe in ... MORE

We were lucky enough to have Ian and Susan sit for us for 3 weeks and we can't recommend them enough. Leading up to the sit, their communication and organisations was great. We had messages, video calls and even a visit from them to meet Reuben (the dog). We got on with them really well and could tell straight away that they would be perfect house sitters and we were not disappointed. Ian and Susan cared for our dog and house impeccably and went over and above our expectations, even dealing ... MORE

Ian and Sue Piercy were 5 stars all round. 5 weeks when we went to Australia. Their rapport with our Rottweiler Ruby was great and she went almost everywhere with them, spending all day out some times. They looked after the house splendidly and we would recommend them to anyone and would obviously use them again.
JON (Devon England, Oct 2022 - 3 weeks)
I arranged for Ian and Susan to stay in my house to look after my dog while I was in hospital for a replacement knee operation. As it turned out the operation was cancelled at very short notice - one hour! Coupled with other events, Ian and Susan's stay turned out in a way they did not expect. They dealt with this situation with kindness and flexibility, and were a great help to me over a difficult few days. They are very friendly and are good company. I would have no hesitation in asking to ... MORE
