The Joyful Duo

72, Retired

74, Retired

We are an active retired couple (both dancers), with a love of travel and animals. We enjoy visiting all parts of the UK and have enjoyed each of our house and pet sits to date.
Jeanette and David have experience as owners of cats and dogs. We have also looked after chickens and ducks at house sits. David has a wide range of experience including caring for small rodents, reptiles & amphibians and even Giant African snails and stick insects on a recent house sit. Other pets will be considered too.
David is an experienced gardener and was an allotment holder for many years, although he's happier with lighter gardening duties these days.
We are very friendly, so please let us know if you'd like a telephone chat before committing . If possible, depending on distance, we like to visit beforehand in order that we can meet each other, so that you feel comfortable leaving your home and pets in our hands and so you can go away feeling relaxed and confident that they'll be well looked after whilst you're away. Of course, it's also an opportunity for us to meet your pets and ask any questions we may have to ensure we have a full understanding of their needs.

Jeanette and David were such a friendly couple, We loved meeting them, and were very happy leaving them in our home to look after our dog whilst we were away. They stayed in touch regularly and we would highly recommend them. Can’t thank you enough........Thank you Jeanette and David!

David and Jeanette did an excellent job of looking after my house and cat. It was really helpful that they came over the week before to get to know each other and enable me to provide a handover. During the stay they kept me informed and everything went as planned. I would be delighted if they are able to return on a future break.

David and Jeanette were lovely from the outset. Peanut seemed to warm to them very quickly and seemed happy and herself when we got home, our house was also clearly respected and looked after.

Jeanette and David were excellent house sitters looking after my house, garden and cat extremely well. They are a lovely couple and I will be asking them to house sit for me again whenever possible.

: I was so pleased that Jeanette and David were able to look after Clover. This was my first time using House Sitters and as very experienced sitters they gently guided me through the process. They were reliable, positive, and thoughtful and communicated prior to and during the sit. When I met them at the start of the sit I really enjoyed chatting with them and felt very happy about their capacity to look after Clover. I would recommend Jeanette and David without hesitation. Thank you both ☺️

Although we had met Jeanette and David briefly last year (they too live in South Wales but further west) we always like to entertain sitters the evening before the sit. They are such a delightful couple with lots of lovely anecdotes of their colourful lives, it was an absolute pleasure to spend time with them. We cannot speak highly enough of the care they gave our very spoilt cat and we loved getting occasional pictures of a very smug puss. As it's so early in the growing year, the garden ... MORE

Jeanette and David give us peace of mind when we are travelling as they are excellent house sitters. We know our dog will be well cared for and happy, and that we will return to a clean house. Thank you!

Jeanette and David were excellent house sitters. They sent regilar updates and pictures. We returned to a clean house with happy, cared for, pets. They even left a presemt and a home made fruit crumble for us! We would not hesitate to recommend them as house sitters. Thank you both, for making the experience a happy one.

David & Jeanette were our first ever house-sitters and we could not have asked for anyone better. From the first time we spoke on the phone, they were reassuring and clearly very experienced with caring for other people's houses and pets. They were pleasantly communicative during their stay here (the short video they sent of our cat, Darcie, enjoying an indulgent tummy-rub was a very thoughtful touch) and left the house spick & span. We were delighted to know that they enjoyed their time in our ... MORE

Jeanette and David were wonderful. It was the first time we had used Housesitters,, fortunately David & Jeanette were experienced. They visited us the week before we went away,, fortunately for us they don't live too far away. Jeanette & David had told us they like to visit beforehand if they are able to, as they like to be able to meet meet the pets. We were also able to go through our pets' daily routine. When away we had daily updates and even some pics which we appreciated. Jasper enjoyed ... MORE
JILL AND RICHARD (Haverfordwest Wales, Jul 2021 - 1 week)
We were absolutely delighted with our experience of having Jeanette and David sit for us for our first time using HousesittersUK. The communication was fantastic and we were confident that our animals were in safe hands. The dog is now ball mad so they clearly gave him lots of playtime and attention. When we returned home, they had left the house beautifully clean and tidy and even made us a blackberry crumble! We will definitely be keeping in touch with future plans. Thank you Jeanette ... MORE

We couldn't recommend Jeanette and David highly enough. Our pets were beautifully looked after, the house was spotless and we felt in very safe hands. We would love to have them back and will definitely be keeping in touch
