"One evening a radiator spring a dramatic leak, spraying water all over the bathroom. Sandra and Steve stemmed the flood and quickly arranged for our plumber to come and sort the problem out. If we had not had anyone in our house that weekend, we would have come home to ceilings down and a massive amount of damage, so we are extremely grateful that we were able to arrange the homesit at relatively short notice and that Sandra and Steve were so efficient and effective at dealing with the problem.

"This week, my partner and have returned from holidaying in Greece and wanted to let you know how pleased we were with our latest Home sitters service. During our two weeks away a calamity happened, the immersion tank failed which created a mini flood during one night. Our homesitters dealt with the emergency coolly and calmly sorting out a plumber who not only performed the emergency action but then followed through with a complete replacement and restitution activity. The benefit of having a homesitter was immediately realised, given that the house would have had a flood of at least 10 days’ worth of flowing water! What a return home we’d have had if your service hadn’t been available! Besides that invaluable service, once again our homesitters were tremendous in looking after our dogs, who adored being ‘left’ with them - I think the dogs were almost disappointed to see us return! The house was immaculately clean and fresh flowers in the kitchen were there to greet us. I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism, calmness and positive service provided. Thank you for their commitment and performance. "

"We wouldn’t go away now and leave our home empty, we always use Homesitters, even for long weekends away. It’s not just a professional service, the homesitters are interesting people and you feel like they will really look after your home. Also the company follows up after every home sit to check we were happy with everything. In the whole time we’ve been using Homesitters we’ve had the same two contacts at the company which makes it a really personal service, we feel we know them really well, and they know us really well too."
Mr & Mrs G, London, Clients since July 2007

5 Star

"I factor Homesitters into my holiday budget and I am happy to pay for the premium service they provide. They are extremely reliable and responsive and I know they’re not going to let me down, particularly as they are a nationwide company so they have more options than a local service might."
Ms W, Liverpool, Client since December 2015

5 Star

"As my husband and I work from home our pets are used to us being there all day, so companionship is very important for them when we’re away. I wouldn’t put them in a kennel and cattery as it would be too much of a disruption – Bilbo prefers the company of humans to other dogs! I believe that using Homesitters is money well spent to give our pets stability, and it’s also reassuring to know that the house is occupied too as there have been several burglaries in the local area recently. I would absolutely recommend Homesitters. Nothing is ever a problem for them, everyone in the office is so efficient and helpful, and we can rely on them to provide a homesitter at the eleventh hour if needed. All the homesitters we have met have been very competent - warm and friendly people who genuinely like animals. We live in the countryside and as Bilbo is a Border Collie he needs lots of exercise. In the winter it gets muddy so we need someone who doesn’t mind taking a muddy walk – and then hosing down a muddy dog when they get back! Homesitters always finds someone who fits the bill!"
Mr & Mrs L, Oxfordshire, Clients since May 2009

5 Star

"When I returned from my weekend my home was neat and tidy and the dogs were happy, they’d obviously been well exercised and fed properly. I knew I’d made the right choice and booked homesitters to look after the animals and house while I got married, and I’ve used them several times since. People may think that using a homesitter is an expensive option, but I think it’s good value for money. If you consider the cost of putting three dogs in kennels and paying someone to come and feed the pigs, the cost is very reasonable. You also have the peace of mind that someone is looking after your home too should something happen. With a homesitter you know what you’re coming home to and that is incredibly reassuring."
Mrs F, Surrey, Client since April 2016

5 Star

"The homesitters we have met have all been wonderful. We find them to be incredibly reliable and conscientious. We like to use the same ones if we can as they are familiar with our home and the animals’ routines and Roka now adores both of the couples we use regularly. We like the combination of knowing that the animals are being well looked after and that the house is secure. As far as we’re concerned, Homesitters is worth every penny and I regularly recommend them to others. "
Mrs H, London, Client since November 2009

5 Star

"When we first used Homesitters we had a very elderly cat who could no longer jump up to her favourite spot on the cupboards in the utility room where she liked to look out the window. When we returned from our holiday we were touched to discover that our homesitters had built a ladder for the cat to climb up on to the cupboard! We believe that using Homesitters is money well spent and we just include the cost as part of our holiday budget. After all, we chose to have animals so we have to look after them properly. We know that they’ll be well looked after and taken for lots of walks while we’re away and that with Homesitters’ 24/7 support service no problem would be unsurmountable. We also find it reassuring that the house is occupied while we’re away. We have an alarm system but nothing compares to having someone staying in the house. Ultimately it feels like having family come to stay. "
Mr & Mrs E, Buckinghamshire, Clients since November 2010

5 Star

"We’ve found it very reassuring that we get to meet the homesitters before the assignment begins which takes away any worries about using the service. The company is very professional and the paperwork very detailed which puts our mind at rest. We also like the fact Homesitters employs more mature home and pet sitters as we feel comfortable knowing someone responsible is staying in our home."
Mr & Mrs N, Wiltshire, Clients since December 2015

5 Star

"We had a very enjoyable few days away. As always, your homesitters were excellent. Mr and Mrs B took exceptional care of our home and animals. Mrs B is particularly gifted in observing, and she leaves us delightful notes about the idiosyncrasies of our pets - we still have her comments on our dogs, and since we no longer have Hippolyta and Thisbe, they are infinitely precious. This time she noted that our hen has made friends with a wild rabbit who comes to sun itself on our lawn!"
Mrs T, Co. Durham, Client since July 2008

"This is the second time Pam has looked after Lottie for two weeks at a time, the first of which being September/October and the second of which being April/May. I genuinely could not have asked for a sweeter, kinder, and clearly a great dog lover; I simply couldn't believe my luck!! Pam came to meet me and Lottie before the first homesit, and I could tell she was going to be thorough, conscientious and responsible through and through, which she WAS! So many of my fellow dog walkers commented on how lovely she was, how frequently they had seen her out walking with Lottie, and that it was quite obvious, when Pam turned up at the house for my April holiday, that Lottie was delighted to see her, and instantly dropped the ball at Pam's feet. She kept in touch with me while I was on holiday to give me updates, and the house was PERFECT on my return, with Pam even stripping the bed she slept in, and washing the bedding. WOW! Over and beyond does not even come anywhere near to it. The entire Homesitters service was so professional, friendly and competent. "
Ms F, Berkshire, Client since September 2016

"Very please. Mrs F has stayed twice now - first with our very elderly retriever. This time with our very energetic puppy. We look forward to seeing her again in May. All very efficient. Lovely to be able to go away confident that our precious pet will be well-cared for with good back-up. "

"I just wanted to let you know that all went very well – Ellen kept us posted via ‘Whats App’ – and even sent us a photo of the 3 girls lining up for breakfast in the garden as we had asked if all 3 were okay and they don’t always appear together! I’ve already sent a text back to Ellen to thank her – but just wanted to let you know how very pleased we were with the Homesitter service, we’ve had no ‘sulks’ from the girls – all back to normal routine from when we got back. We will definitely use Homesitters again – we really feel like we can plan some breaks now"

"Homesitters is excellent - it is a really professional company. Over the years, we've met some wonderful homesitters whom we now use regularly. They know us, our routines and they love the animals. We used to have a diabetic cat who needed insulin administering every day but we were confident that our homesitter would care for him as we did. In all the years we have used Homesitters, everything has always run smoothly and I always recommend them to everyone. "
Lord & Lady L, London, Client since October 1992

5 Star

"Homesitters took away all our stress and worry, they kept in touch while we were away to reassure us that all was well. When we returned a few days later it was as if we hadn't been away.

They give us total peace of mind to go away without worrying about Bonnie, it is a very professional organisation. "
Mrs V D, Scotland, Client since April 2015

"The most important thing for us is to know our dogs are well cared for whilst we are away - as well as the goldfish, which is of course pretty low maintenance!

"Isobel was once more exceptional. She’s like a part of our family, we trust her totally with the house and the dogs. The gardeners and cleaner at the house love her. As we aren’t there we don’t get to see them too much, but she makes them tea, has them in and generally is the perfect hostess! George the old gardener is continually telling me what a fine cup of tea she makes! She has integrated herself into our local community, has friends locally and participates in local things like coffee mornings etc. She had a bit of an issue with Kevin who got in a fight (totally not Isobel’s fault under any circumstance) and dealt with it perfectly, got him sorted out with no fuss. It was a nasty bite, however she handled it even more perfectly, didn’t make a fuss but told us the facts not sparing details, but not making a drama. She was calm and professional and we were reassured 100% that everything was OK. We are blessed having her and very grateful indeed to you for providing her. Thank you very much!"
