No rating Martin was an excellent house sitter. He arrived the day before and we went through all the sit requirements. Whilst we were away, Martin kept us up to date with the cats and chickens, despite a poor signal where we were staying in Scotland. We were happy being able to go away knowing that everything was in a safe and capable pair of hands. When we got back, the house was sparkling clean and tidy. We, like many of Martin;s other reviewers, would have no hesitation in recommending him. Thanks ... MORE

No rating Martin we very efficient at replying to messages and reconfirmed all the details before arriving to sit for us. He was kind and courteous and the dogs loved him. They had a lot of walks and the house was kept neat and tidy for our return. We will definitely be booking Martin again if he is available!
JO PEPPIATT (Buckingham England, Oct 2018 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Martin looked after our 3 cats, 2 geese, 7 ducks & 20 chickens and cockerals for a week in Sept. Everything was perfect with good communication throughout the sit and we came back to a lovely clean and tidy house and of course very contented animals. Martin is very friendly and easy to talk to and we would highly recommended him for a housesit and use him again I he is available.

No rating Martin looked after our Westie dog Monty for nearly 3 weeks this summer. He took great care of him and gave us regular updates while we were away. We came back to a lovely clean house and a happy dog. We would highly recommend Martin.

No rating Martin was with us for two weeks looking after 3 dogs during the heatwave spell. We returned to find the house as left and the dogs looking really well and happy. Martin was in regular contact whilst away and we would highly recommend Martin as a housesitter. We have already booked him in to housesit for us again in 2019.

No rating Martin was a fantastic house sitter and kept in regular contact giving updates on Molly and the hens. The house was immaculate on my return. Would thoroughly recommend him.
PRU (Petersfield England, May 2018 - 5 days)
No rating Martin came for 17 days whilst we visited our son in San Diego, it was the first time we used a Housesitter and we were extremely pleased. One of our cats is old and has kidney problems and we were concerned to leave her. Our fears were unfounded, Martin looked after both cats and the house so well and patiently gained the cat's trust and was adept at giving one of the cats their daily medicine. Martin gave us frequent updates via messenger which was paramount in enabling us to enjoy our ... MORE

No rating Martin looked after our dog Dooley for 9 nights in October. We were very pleased that Martin took time on arrival to understand our dog and on our return glad to have a happy dog and a very clean apartment. Thank you Martin. Deirdre & Patrick

EJAI (cleator moor England, Aug 2017 - 1 month 2 weeks)
No rating Martin did a house sit for us of about two and a bit weeks. We met briefly before we left and we went on holiday with complete confidence that our house, garden and dog were in capable and reliable hands. Upon our return the house was spotless, the plants were happy and our dog had had a very good time! So, Thank you, Martin. We hope you'll house sit for us again!

No rating Martin stayed at our house for 2 weeks and we came back to a clean home and happy animals. He kept us informed from time to time of how everything was. Glad he enjoyed his stay at ours.
BARBARA (Littledean England, Jun 2017 - 2 weeks)
No rating We can't rate Martin highly enough after he stepped in to house and dog sit for us for nearly two weeks at quite short notice when another sitter had to cancel. Martin has done an excellent job of looking after the home and ensuring the dogs stayed comfortable through some uncommon extremely hot weather. We returned to happy dogs and an immaculate house. We couldn't be more pleased and don't hesitate in recommending him. Many Thanks,
TIM (ROSS ON WYE England, Jun 2017 - 1 week 6 days)
No rating Martin kindly stepped in at the last minute to care for my animals while I was away for 5 days. He arrived before I left at my request meaning I could do a proper handover and leave knowing everything was in hand and any questions had been answered. I got regular updates while I was away and returned to a clean and orderly household. All the animals seemed content and happy and appear to have been thoroughly spoiled in my absence. I found Martin to be reliable and friendly and he sorted ... MORE
ELLIE (whitstable England, Jun 2017 - 5 days)
No rating Martin took care of our dog, fish and quails for 4 weeks in September. From the moment we met Martin we knew our precious boy Bart was in good hands. Martin is very caring and friendly, Bart took to him very quickly and we were given regular updates of how he was doing. Everything was in perfect order when we arrived home. Thank you so much Martin for taking all the stress out of being away from home so long!
