Wonderful Sitter

Writer

Semi retired having been in the film industry, a teacher and an estate agent. I now am a freelance writer and I am just about to have my first book published called Outrageous Rhymes. I lost my lovely Cocker Spaniel a couple of years ago and so decided as a single person to start looking after other peoples pets as I miss having one myself. I can sort out my own timetable and schedule so I am very able to fit in at the last minute.
Adore dogs and cats, walking and cooking so I cannot think of anything better than spending my time travelling around looking after pets - such fun!
I am very able, reliable and honest - nor am I phased by any issues that arrive so you can feel safe int he knowledge your home and pet is being looked after in your absence.

Vicky was the most outstanding Housesitter. She was so easy and efficient to deal with, great communication. She was amazing with our two dogs and even ended up taking on the unplanned role of project managing our builders for the week we were away as our building project overran and we had quite a major power cut as well. I cannot recommend her more highly, the house looked immaculate when we got back and the dogs looked genuinely disappointed to see us coming back through the door rather ... MORE
 
BEL (Andover England, Feb 2024 - 1 week 1 night)
This review should be written by Sam, the border terrier who had a wonderful time with Vicky - we arrived back to a very chilled well behaved young dog. The house was sparkling when we arrived back which was great. She kept in touch the whole time we were away and we cannot thank her enough for giving us such a stress free holiday. We will definitely invite her back. Jenny
 
JENNY (Bristol England, Jan 2024 - 2 weeks 3 nights)
Vicky came back to house sit for us a second time. It was great to have her back and of course she looked after the animals and house very well. Inka and Tarka were healthy and happy when we arrived home and the house was clean and tidy. There was milk in the fridge which was thoughtful. As arranged, Vicky left before we got home, but communicated with us on the day and made sure that we were not delayed before leaving the house. She dealt with a washing machine crisis ( without making a ... MORE

A diligent, communicative and reliable sitter! Glad to have Vicky back any time.
 
TERESA (East Molesey England, Dec 2023 - 6 nights)
Vicky was an excellent sitter and I would highly recommend her to any any future host. She was very quick and clear in her communication. She took excellent care of our two. dogs, cat and chickens and left the house in a very clean and well looked after state. She was professional, polite and clearly very caring an attentive to our animals. Thank you Vicky.
 
HUMPHREY (Norwich England, Dec 2023 - 1 week)
Vicky was extremely professional and being new to all this gave us confidence that she would look after our pets and home. She also took delivery of some raspberry canes and even put them in the ground for me which was above and beyond A very competent and capable person, and we would have no hesitation in asking her again Andrew and Claire
 
ANDREW (Camborne England, Nov 2023 - 4 weeks)
Honestly, Vicky is an absolute angel. I still can't believe our luck in finding her. She communicated brilliantly ahead and during the sit. Our dogs loved her from the start. Vicky left our house gleaming. We came back from holiday to a perfect house and such well looked after pets. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts xx
 
LAUREN (Orpington England, Sep 2023 - 1 week)
We have no hesitation in recommending Vicky who looked after our home, dogs and chickens beautifully. Extremely professional, organised and thorough.
 
CATHERINE (Bedhampton England, Sep 2023 - 1 week 2 nights)
Vicky was brilliant! She was proactive at arranging a facetime appointment before the housesit, confirming what was required and planning arrival and departure timings for the housesit, tracking my flights to ensure my pets weren't left unattended for long. She appeared unflappable and I was able to enjoy my holiday without worrying what was happening back home. A couple of texts were exchanged to confirm all ok but nothing intrusive. On my return I could see the cats were clearly content and ... MORE

CRAIG AND SARAH (Worcestershire England, Sep 2023 - 1 week)
I would highly recommend Vicky as a sitter. From the outset the communication was excellent. We initially arranged a call to discuss our requirements for the sit then afterwards we communicated regularly by email and Whatsapp. Vicky looked after our young dog and our four cats. All were happy when we returned off holiday. I would have no hesitation using Vicky again.
 
WENDY (Broseley England, Aug 2023 - 1 week 4 nights)
We only have positive things to say about Vicky. No wonder she is so booked up!! She developed a rapport with our dog straight away and any concerns we may have had were immediately assuaged. We had a lovely time away all the better knowing Vicky was holding the fort at home, so well.
 
BRIDGET (Chichester Harbour England, May 2023 - 3 weeks)
We would happily recommend Vicky as a house and pet sitter. Vicky looked after our Labrador and cat for the bank holiday weekend. All communication was timely and easy. We came home to an immaculate house.
 
LAURA (Edenbridge England, May 2023 - 2 days)
This was our first time using a sitting service like this so I have to admit I was a little nervous, however Vicky was great. Communication beforehand was great and having the WhatsApp video call allowed us to feel that we knew Vicky before she arrived. She is friendly and efficient and we felt confident leaving our house and 8 month old dog in her care. The house was spotless when we got home and our border collie Red was relaxed and happy. Thanks Vicky!
 
GINA (Cheltenham England, May 2023 - 6 days)
A great house sitter. The pets were very happy and the house was immaculate when we returned. Please add Vicky to the highly recommended list.
 
JIM (Fleet England, Apr 2023 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Vicky was great. She gave clear and timely communication, thus reassuring us all would go to plan and then turned up on time allowing for an efficient hand over. As promised, Vicky gave our dogs the routine they were use to including walks and cuddles. When we returned home Vicky had cleaned and tidied, allowing us to settle back in and relax. This was a very easy and straight forward house sit and we thank Vicky for that.
 
MARK (Morton, Bourne England, Apr 2023 - 6 days)
Vicky joined us the evening before we flew, as we had an early start. We walked the dog, had dinner together and had a chance to go through Lottie and Toby's routines. It was great to see how at ease she was with them, and they took to her straight away. We had regular WhatsApp updates throughout the holiday and came home to a spotless house, two happy pets, and milk in the fridge. I would have no hesitation in asking Vicky to house-sit again for us.
 
LISA (Churt England, Apr 2023 - 1 week 1 day)
Vicky was an excellent house sitter. . This is the first time I have used Housesitters UK and I was a bit nervous about it. I had a WhatsApp video call with Vicky before the sit and she put me an ease that she would look after my dog and house well. She is very friendly and capable. She arrived on time and immediately connected with our dog Rose. During the house sit she communicated regularly . When we returned, our dog Rose was very happy and relaxed, the house was in spotless condition and ... MORE
 
TIFFANY (Turville Heath England, Mar 2023 - 1 week 2 days)
First time that we have used a house sitter and we did have some concerns about it. However, we could not have been more delighted with Vicky. House perfectly safe and, most importantly, both dogs loved her. We would have no hesitation in asking Vicky again
 
MARTIN (Tonbridge England, Jan 2023 - 1 month)
Vicky looked after Inka and Tarka for us and did a great job. Communication before and during the sit was good. She came a couple of hours before we left to meet the animals and learn about their care. They took to her straight away. The house was clean and tidy when we returned and the animals clearly well looked after. We would recommend Vicky as a house sitter and would be very happy to have her sit for us again. Thanks very much, Vicky.
 
BRIDGET (Ilminster England, Jan 2023 - 2 weeks 1 day - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
This was our first house sitting experience and we were very anxious about leaving our dogs. We arrived back to a pristine house and two very happy dogs. We hope Vicky will be available the next time we go away. We would have no hesitation to highly recommend Vicky.
 
MAUREEN (Bideford England, Nov 2022 - 2 weeks 4 days)
Highly recommended.
 
ALASDAIR (NEWARK England, Sep 2022 - 1 week 4 days)
Vicky stayed in our home for 11 nights and cared for our neurotic border collie Buddy! I was very nervous leaving Buddy for the first time as he can be very quirky but Vicky was wonderful. She took everything in her stride which, in turn, helped us feel happy and relaxed. The house was spotless when we returned and Buddy was happy and healthy. We would definitely use Vicky again and cannot recommend her enough.
 
JENNIE (Upminster England, Aug 2022 - 1 week 4 days)
Vicky did an amazing job looking after our cat Max. It was during the heat wave and she ensured the house was cool so Max could be comfortable. Highly recommend Vicky if you are looking for a house/pet sitter!!
 
BEN MURROW (London England, Jul 2022 - 6 days)
Vicky was an excellent sitter. Reliable and practical an able to take care of the house and look after our dog without needing much assistance from us. The exceptionally hot weather was a challenge to keep our plants alive but thankfully she took time to water them. Vicky is also responsive and communicates well and is very good with dogs, who know she is the boss. Hope she may consider sitting for us again in future
 
MEL & MARK (Dunmow England, Jun 2022 - 3 weeks)
Vicky house sat for us and looked after our cat and dog for 12 nights. We initially spoke over FaceTime which was nice to get some familiarity. Vicky kept good contact during the stay and it was clear that both fur babies were content on our arrival home. The house was absolutely spotless! Cleaner than after our professorial house cleaners have been! Happy to recommend and use again. Thanks again Vicky
 
CHARLOTTE (Chepstow Wales, May 2022 - 1 week 5 days)
Excellent Housesitter - highly recommended. Vicky took the time to come and meet me and the pets before we finalised the sit and despite a lengthy drive arrived just before we left for our holiday which allowed a quick reminder of things and brief handover. On our return our two dogs and cat we all very happy, content and had clearly been well looked after. The house was spotless too. We would not hesitate to recommend Vicky and would definitely ask her to sit again. The sit was ... MORE
 
MICHELLE (Cranleigh England, May 2022 - 1 week 2 days)
Wonderful experience - Vicky left the house in an immaculate state, cats were happy and all my plants were healthy. Great communication throughout. Thoroughly recommended.
 
DEBBIE (Pamber Green England, May 2022 - 1 week)
We had a video call with Vicky months before our holiday and and she was able to visit us to meet George before our departure which was most reassuring. Vicky kindly sent a message to let me know that George was safely in for the night, as requested. When we returned, George seemed chilled, the house was immaculate (with milk in the fridge!), indoor plants had been watered, outdoor birdseed had been filled. I really appreciated the note that Vicky left with details of what had happened during ... MORE
 
PHIL (Rowledge Farnham England, Apr 2022 - 2 weeks)
Vicky housesit for us for just over a week and I can recommend her very highly. We spoke in advance on FaceTime which was helpful. She arrived in plenty of time to meet animals and to familiarise herself with the house. She kept in touch during the week and when we got home it was to an immaculate house and very happy well kept animals!
 
JUDY (Wormley England, Jan 2022 - 1 week 1 day)
This was my first experience using a house sitter but Vicky's excellent communication and reliable approach set aside any worries I might have had! We FaceTimed prior to meeting and then had an hour or so together before I left to go on holiday for 2 weeks. She recognised that my dog was getting anxious seeing the suitcases in the hall and immediately started playing ball to distract her. I knew then that Frankie would be well looked after while I was away and on my return I could tell that ... MORE
 
CAROLINE (Southampton England, Dec 2021 - 2 weeks)
Vicky looked after our two dogs and cats for a week . We won't put them into kennels ,so for us having some one in our home was the best for us all . Vicky was wonderful and I think they are still missing her ! The house was left so tidy in our return . Vicky kept us updated on how the animals were . I would love Vicky to come back for a second stay . ��
 
DARYL (Beccles England, Dec 2021 - 1 week 1 day)
Jordan looked after my dog Maya for 2 weeks. Maya is a rescue and suffers from separation anxiety. Jordan handled all of this brilliantly and made a huge effort to make sure Maya was at ease. She also left the home in perfect condition. I would highly recommend her!
 
LILI (Hartfield England, Nov 2021 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Vicky is a great House Sitter. My dog and 2 cats well taken care of. It was such a relief to go on holiday and not to worry about anything. I would definitely recommend Vicky.
 
NICOLA (ANDOVER England, Oct 2021 - 5 days)
Vicky has just stayed at our house for the past 12 days whilst we were on a family holiday. It was our first time using a house sitter and Vicky was very professional and relaxed and made us feel instantly at ease, we knew we were leaving our home and animals in her very capable hands! We had regular updates on how our kitty's were doing and our home was left clean and perfect. We had an issue with the house alarm which Vicky had no problem dealing with. Would highly recommend Vicky to ... MORE
