Reliable Sitting

48, Actuary

Experienced pet owner, house-sitter and gardener.
I'm very happy to assist with outdoor tasks such as lawn mowing, plant care and general yard tidying.
I love both dogs and cats, and have quite a bit of experience with chickens, ducks and farm animals.
As a remote worker (financial analysis), I can assure hosts that I will be around to care for the property and any animals.
I'm fit and active, so long dog walks are welcome.
Friends would describe me as something of a 'neat freak', so your home will always be kept clean and tidy.
I am a non-smoker and will not take on sitting jobs for hosts that smoke indoors (sorry).

Once again we were delighted to welcome Steven, Judith and the girls into our home whilst we were away. As was the case the last time they house sat for us everything was really well looked after, the house was immaculate and the animals had taken them to their hearts. Steven had even braved the elements to look after some gardening for us. Mabel, our dog, in particular was sad to see them leave. It’s so reassuring knowing they are looking after things for us and also enjoying themselves. ... MORE

This was the first time we have used house/pet sitters and Steven, Judith and the girls did not disappoint. They were a delight and we found them extremely easy to get on with. They looked after our two elderly cats with great empathy which gave us peace of mind while we were away. The house was sparkling when we returned and the lawn had been cut, so everything looked exactly like how we had left it. Communication, when necessary, was easy and informative and helped ease any niggles or ... MORE

This was our first foray into engaging housesitters and we could not be more pleased. Steven and his family were a delight from start to finish – the house was in perfect order when we got back, all the animals were in great shape, and communication was excellent throughout. Steven had also evidently spent a lot of time in the garden, which was way beyond the call of duty, and it showed – the lawn has never looked so smart. We would certainly welcome them back any time.

A big thank you to Steven, Judith and their 2 lovely daughters Rose and Esther for looking after our home and animals for the last week. They have done an amazing job, the animals have been looked after as requested with updates and pictures sent throughout the week and we returned to an immaculate house. I would not hesitate to ask Steven and his lovely family back again.

Steve and Judith have been great sitters. This was our first time using house sitters, so we were a little nervous. They helped us through the process. They’ve looked after our pets, garden and house beautifully. Lots of photos of the pets throughout the stay and they all seemed to get on well. Thanks so much for everything!

Steven and his family are very considerate and lovely people who took great care of our home, garden and cat Volod. In fact my houseplants look better than if we'd been here ourselves and forgotten bits of the garden look revived! Thank you so much for your consideration and communication whilst we were away. You're welcome back any time

Just the best house sitters anyone could ask for! Steve and his family looked after our home, family of pets and even gardened. Quite honestly our home looked better than it did when we left. Quite clearly our dogs really bonded with them, in fact our one dog Bodi seems a bit down now they've gone. Wouldn't hesitate to have them house It again!
LUCINDA (Oswestry Wales, Jul 2023 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Steven, Judith and the girls did a fabulous job of looking after our house, pets and garden. We had no complaints about anything, and they consistently did more than we could have expected to make sure everything was ok and safe. Our house and garden were immaculate when we returned home, and even our dog was heartbroken to see them leave. They are lovely people and we would definitely recommend them as housesitters and hope to use their services again in future.

Steve Judith Rose & Esther thank you so much for taking care of Purdey keeping our garden tidy looking after our greenhouse and our home. We really appreciate it thank you all

Wow! That is all I can say about Steve and family. I think we hit the house sitter jackpot here! We returned last night to a house that was sparkling, and the outdoor space was in a much better way than when we left it! Highly recommended and awesome guests!
LAURA (Holywell Wales, Mar 2023 - 3 weeks)
Steve, Judith, and their two delightful daughters took care of our home and miniature dachshund, Pippa for six weeks while we were away in Australia during February and March 2023. They arrived 48 hours before we departed which was very helpful as regards briefing them however, they were so efficient I'm sure it would have worked fine if that hadn't been possible. They looked after Pippa wonderfully, as well as watering my plants and keeping the house clean and tidy. Steve even dug over and ... MORE

Stephen was a most efficient house sitter and the house with all its foibles was very well cared for. As with all old houses it had problems including a pheasant crashing through a window but all was dealt with happily. He kept us up to date with comprehensive reports of actions taken. The family was considerate with energy consumption too. I would highly recommend them.
JANE (Salisbury England, Nov 2022 - 2 months 3 weeks)
Steven is wonderful! Very caring responsible person. We felt very comfortable leaving our pets and house in Steven's care. Communication was very clear and quick. Steven went out of his way to make sure our house sit went ahead due to double booking and we thank him very much for his commitment. Can't recommend Steven highly enough!!
MEL (Arthurs Seat VIC, Aug 2022 - 1 week) From Aussie House Sitters
We were very fortunate to have Steven and family house sit for us. Throughout their stay Steven kept us informed of our pets and how well they adapted to their new family. Steven also took great care of the house and garden which was a pleasure to return to. All our pets were well cared for and communicating with Steven was easily done with prompt and friendly replies. We would like to thank Steven, and to highly recommend him for any house sit.
GREG (ROSEBUD VIC, Jul 2022 - 2 months) From Aussie House Sitters
I can't recommend Steven and Jo highly enough, their communication, care of our home and garden were amazing. They looked after our animals like they were their own, it was such a relief to be know our home and animals were in such good hands while we were travelling. Would definitely use them again if we have the opportunity. :)
MARLANE (Arthurs Creek VIC, Jun 2022 - 7 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Steven has been fantastic with the recent sit of Bob and Dusty. Communication was very clear and frequent. The dogs are happy and the house is spotless. I would highly recommend Steven if you are considering a sitter.
