I am retired, a non smoker and fit for my age
I am vegetarian and enjoy cooking for myself
I am friendly and outgoing, I like meeting new people and am reliable, straightforward and honest
Single, amicably separated from long term partner a few years ago
I grew up with cats, always liked them, usually they like me! They are such curious, interesting and individual creatures!
I have looked after flats and houses for friends and family many times over the years including their various pets, houseplants and gardens sometimes for periods of months in London, Kent, Norfolk, Zurich, Bangkok etc
I have been a house owner in the past so I am well aware of security issues, locking up, checking windows etc when out
Good with houseplants, gardening experience
Practical with extensive interior and exterior DIY experience
I enjoy reading, listening to music, watching films, swimming and walking
I am much traveled in many countries and continents and enjoy exploring and getting to know new places
I grew up and lived in London for many years and have lived in many places including many years in the countryside in various places in UK and Germany
I speak English, German and some French
I recently returned from a number of years travelling abroad, hence the interest in house sitting

Stephen looked after our house for 7 weeks whilst we were away. He is conscientious and easy to get along with. He made sure he had all the relevant information about our house before we left. We had a few household issues while we were away which he dealt with very competently. He left the house tidy. I would recommend him without reservation.
 
PHILIPPA (Burnham On Crouch England, Dec 2023 - 1 month 3 weeks)
Thank you so much for such a nice review and good recommendation. It was a real pleasure to meet you both, stay in the granny flat and look after your house while hibernating in Burnham over the winter months! I would be very happy to return sometime. Best wishes and good luck to you both.
Stephen was friendly, organised and considerate. He took good care of our house and two cats, and kept us updated while we were away. We can thoroughly recommend him as a sitter for your house and pets.

Thank you so much for such a nice review and good recommendation. It was a real pleasure to meet you both and look after your lovely house and garden and your friendly cats Tom and Tortie. I would be very happy to return sometime.
Steve was an excellent house sitter, who took very good care of our two black cats. He also left our house spotless after the two and half week sit. Our female black cat is very shy but took to Steve very well which was very reassuring for us. Steve's communication before and during the sit was comprehensive and he was not afraid to ask us about any detail to ensure that the cats were well looked after during his stay. We would not hesitate to use him again in the future.

He came the evening before my early start which made it easy to explain how the house worked .He made a real effort with the cats and on my return had clearly formed a good relationship with them The house was clean and tidy on my return and he had kindly made me some food which was much appreciated after a long journey He is an interesting ...

Steve was a lovely guy to have around! He’s got lots of interesting chat and Bailey took to him straight away! My flat was clean and tidy upon my return and he even stripped the bed for me and my plants are all happy too! I have already booked him for my next trip away. I highly recommend this lovely gent!
 
PIROSKA (London England, Aug 2023 - 1 week 1 night)
Thank you so much for such a nice review and good recommendation. It was a pleasure to meet you and look after your comfortable flat, small jungle and your friendly cat Bailey. Looking forward to returning in October.
Our two cats have very different personalities and Steve looked after them very well. He also fed our nocturnal visitors, the hedgehogs. His communication was excellent throughout from booking to arrangements for arrival and through the sit. The house was well cared for and clean and tidy on our return. Steve is a well traveled, calm and interesting person and we would recommend him to others .

We consider ourselves to be very fortunate in finding Steve via House Sitters UK to take care of the house and our cat Enzo whilst we were away. Steve came over to the house a couple of weeks prior to our departure and it was a pleasure to discover that we had a lot of common interests. Steve is a very pleasant, presentable, cultured gentleman and a genuine cat lover at heart. Enzo immediately liked him. We departed, Steve arrived and we able to relax with the comfort of knowing that Enzo and ... MORE

Steve was responsive in his communication throughout and left the house very clean and tidy, which is so appreciated after a week away. Binx can be a shy cat but it sounds that Steve was able to win her round, which is so positive, especially as they are all different! I would recommend Steve as a house and cat sitter.
 
JO (Bristol England, Jun 2023 - 1 week)
Thank you so much for such a nice review and good recommendation. It was a pleasure to meet you and look after your house and cat. I enjoyed the opportunity to spend a week in Bristol where I had been a student many years ago. I would be happy to return sometime.
Steve has been a great sitter, looking after Daisy, all the house plants, and the pots and veggies in the garden as well, during the hot weather. He left the house clean and tidy and everything is in good order when I got back. Steve is very friendly and chatty, and I heartily recommend him for house and cat sitting.
