Peace of mind carers

Retired Executive Assistant

Retired IT Manager

Hello, we are a retired professional couple who have worked and lived in both the UK and Australia.

We have used house sitters for our own pets over the years and recognise how important it has been for us, so for some time now we've been thrilled to assist people like yourselves to have a relaxing peace of mind break.

We absolutely understand how very precious your animal family members are to you and would be thrilled to take the very best of care of them and your home and provide peace of mind for you as you head off on your holiday/away time.

We have many years of experience looking after dogs and cats of our own, from the youngest of kittens and pups to elderly pets with needs, including medical. We've also been the happy owners of chickens, rabbits, sheep and fish, and if there is a new pet for us to care for, that's exciting!

We have also renovated our homes over the years so we are very practical when it comes to home maintenance if that need arises.

A little bit about us... We love to walk, practice yoga, we are keen gardeners and we thoroughly enjoy exploring new places and help out where and when we can.

We are very flexible in the locations that we can be in so if you are needing genuine carers for your precious pet/s and home, we'd very much like to chat with you about this.

Kind regards
Meredith & Richard

Meredith and Richard were fantastic communicating from the start. They took the time to visit before the sit and meet us and our cats which was so helpful and reassuring. Our cats were so well looked after, we had plenty of photos and messages to keep us updated. They kept the garden watered (there was a lot of pots, greenhouse etc to do) and even harvested the garlic, picked and froze the ripe fruit. So we came home to a thriving colourful garden, very happy, chilled cats and the house just ... MORE

This is the first time I have used sitters and thanks to Meredith and Richard it was a wonderful experience. Right from the first message exchange their communication was clear, responsive and friendly. They visited the day before to check out the cats’ requirements, and were so helpful and willing. I came home to a clean and tidy house, happy and cared for pets (although one sulked for a day or two - typical cat!) and the garden was better than I had left it! Lawn neatly mowed, and path ...

Meredith and Richard were a lovely couple. They were great at communicating with us whilst we were away on our holiday. The house was very clean and tidy when we returned. They even cut the grass for us. They took such good care of our old dog and treated him as if he was their own. Our dog is old they adapted very well to his needs. We have no hesitation in recommending Richard and Meredith to others looking for someone to look after their animals.
CHRISTINE (Chipstead England, May 2024 - 2 weeks 3 nights)
Meredith and Richard are a wonderful couple who took great care and consideration for our cats and our home. They listened carefully to what works best for the cats and followed their routine perfectly. They kept us posted and the house was wonderfully clean on our return. Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing you again. Sonia and Nicky
SONIA (Shoreham-By-Sea England, Apr 2024 - 6 nights)
Meredith and Richard were a dream come true! We couldn’t have wished for nicer people to take care of our cats and our home. Our cats were very happy and relaxed. We had daily updates which was much appreciated! They left our house beautifully clean and tidy. They were lovely company when we spent time with them via zoom before the sit, and when we met them face to face. They have a really magical energy and we hope we can find another time when they could sit again, but I fear they will be too ... MORE
VICTORIA (Shepton Mallet England, Apr 2024 - 6 nights)
Meredith and Richard were fantastic. They led us through the process as this was our first time using an official house sitter. They kept us updated of their travel intentions. We met them via Zoom initially and then we spent a couple of hours together the day before we left.They were genuinely interested in our pets and provided a consistent care for them in the way that we do (on a good day!) The house was spotless when we got back and they left us a diary of their time with the animals ... MORE
CATHERINE (Wells England, Apr 2024 - 1 week 1 night)
Thank you Meredith and Richard for staying at ours and taking care of our cat! Marlo has cerebellar hypoplasia and despite not requiring much special care, she can be feisty! We wanted someone who could respect her space and give her time to warm up to strangers - Meredith and Richard were just perfect for her! We felt that Marlo was very well-looked after, and we received frequent updates while we were away. Our home was sparkly clean when we returned and we could not thank Meredith and ... MORE

Both Meredith and Richard are an absolute joy to communicate with and I have no hesitation in recommending them for any future sits. Their care and responsibility of my home and my baby dog was first class.
KELVIN (Somerton Park SA, Jan 2023 - 1 week) From Aussie House Sitters
It was an absolute pleasure to have Meredith and Richard sit for me. My cat, Rose. was cared for in the best manner, and it was of great comfort to me that I was kept informed of her progress while away. I am very grateful she was so well looked after. The garden was kept watered in the heat, pot plants expertly cared for and the house was immaculate when I returned. Meredith is an excellent communicator and it was easy to make arrangements. I found her very considerate with all things ... MORE
ANNETTE (Ballarat VIC VIC, Jan 2023 - 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Oh Meredith and Richard! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND these wonderful humans - the best home and pet sitters! They kept us updated with lovely stories about Nyah and her adventures, they really bonded which was so special. The house was perfect when I arrived home, I so appreciated their care and kindness and attention to detail in the house and garden. Absolute stars!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thank you for spending this time with Nyah, she really missed you when you left xx
MELISSA (Brunswick East VIC, Dec 2022 - 1 week) From Aussie House Sitters
This was the first time I'd ever left my house and pet in the hands of a housesitter. Meredith and Richard immediately put me at ease regarding the whole process through their great communication. I immediately felt like they would do a fantastic job at looking after Steve and the house and they did. They kept me up to date with how Steve was doing and I really appreciate that they were on hand when I needed someone to access the garden whilst I was away. I came home to a lovely tidy house and ... MORE
NICK (Taunton England, Sep 2022 - 4 weeks)
Meredith & Richard were a pleasure to host! Communication throughout was very easy, making set up and the housesit run very smoothly. I must say our house was left in fantastic condition, and over and above our expectation. Our cat was lovingly cared for and had plenty of attention - we can tell this because he was not sulking on our return :) I would 100% recommend them as sitters and be happy to host them again - a wonderful, respectful, and trustworthy couple.
KIMBERLEY (Frome England, Aug 2022 - 3 days)
Meredith and Richard were ideal sitters. The communication before and during the sit was prompt and useful. The house was lovely and clean on our return, and Lola was happy. The flowers and wine left for us were a pleasant surprise. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
RHIANNON (Kidderminster England, Jul 2022 - 6 days)
I would have given Meredith and Richard 10 stars, they were wonderful! I had regular communication with them while I was away and felt absolutely happy that my 2 cats were getting lots of love and were being well looked after. There was a heatwave whilst I was away and they must have spent many hours watering the garden because, despite the heat and no rain, all the plants looked fantastic. I also came back to a clean and tidy house and 2 very happy cats. I would not hesitate to recommend ... MORE

Make sure the garden and pot plants are thriving when you get back - get a house sitter.
