Sitters TennisNut cracks a housesit while deciding where to settle

Dear Ian,
Thank you for the quick tips. I also want to say that we are extremely pleased with your service and we have recommended Housecarers to others.We have already made several good contacts and concluded housesitting arrangements.

We are looking for others because our plans are to shift to Melbourne and possibly other states and sitting in various locations will help us find where to settle. Your constant contact with tips and destinations is a remarkable feature of your service.

Thank you,

Elliot and Claire (Sitter Username Tennisnut)

Scorpiolady keeps in text contact with phillyqualified

We recently had phillyqualified sit for us for two weeks, looking after our rural home, 1 cat and 12 chooks. He kept in touch before we actually met (some 6 months approx with phone calls) and then came and visited us twice before coming to do the "sit". We were impressed with his friendliness and honesty and our home was very well looked after, our animals well cared for and he even weeded our vegetable patch! He kept in text contact whilst we were away which was reassuring.

We can definitely recommend him to others and hope he will be able to come and sit for us next time we go away.

Our experience is almost identical to the experience that muscrat had - see Housesitting Blog for Recent Updates > Archives>April 2007.
