We’ve been lucky to sit for some wonderful people. Here’s what they’ve been saying:
“Tim & Teresa house sat for us at our house in North London for 3 months over the summer of 2017 whilst we were in the United States. They were thoroughly reliable, utterly trustworthy, very careful of our possessions, extremely clean and tidy – in short excellent house sitters! Over the period, unexpected problems arose with the plumbing and electrics which they dealt with quickly and efficiently. On our return, the house was just as we had left it. I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending them to look after your house in the future.”
Sarah, Walthamstow, London, UK |September 2017
“Tim and Teresa stayed in our house for 2 weeks while we were away on holiday. They are reliable, trustworthy and also a very nice couple. We could not possibly ask more from them! We were absolutely overwhelmed by their kindness. As there was an overlap between their housesit and us going away Teresa cooked a lovely dinner for us (can I please have a recipe for this chicken?). When we were away they looked after the house and our cat and provided us with regular updates. The cat was so happy when we came back which was a nice change from her previous stays in catteries. Upon our return we found a spotlessly clean house, a handover note, a thank you card and even fresh flowers! Thank you so much Tim and Teresa!”
Magda, Worcester Park, London, UK |June 2017
“Tim and Teresa were fantastic at looking after our lovely Nala and our home. The house was beautifully clean and tidy when we returned and most importantly Nala was very happy! I would definitely recommend them – thank you.”
Perveen, Southgate, London, UK |April 2017
“Tim and Teresa looked after our house and two cats for three weeks. They did a great job, kept in touch and left the house clean and tidy. They were happy to come round prior to the house sit to go through the cat detail and quirks of our house. The cats took to them straight away and we felt very reassured that they would be in good hands while we were away. Tim and Teresa are very organised, are great communicators, as well as practical and a friendly couple and we wouldn’t hesitate using them again to house sit or recommend them to others”
Jo and Bridget, Mile End, London, UK |May 2017
“Tim and partner Teresa are a delightful, trustworthy and capable couple. They stayed in our home for six weeks and looked after our two cats who were obviously very content on our return. Everything else was in good order as well. We would not hesitate to ask them to sit for us again. We have awarded them 5 stars in all categories”
Avril and John, Whetstone, London, UK | March 2017
“Tim and Teresa looked after our house in south east London for four months in late 2016 and were just wonderful. They checked in with us regularly to let us know everything was fine, they alerted us to possible damp issues which many other tenants or house sitters would have never even noticed. When we came home we found the house immaculate and beautifully tidy. I would highly recommend them both”
Nicola, Tulse Hill, London, UK | March 2017
“Tim and Teresa were our first ever house sit experience and we lucked out. Over several meetings prior to our 5 week trip, Tim and Teresa left us feeling confident that our home and cat would be in safe hands, and they were. We returned home to an immaculate house, and a nonchalant cat…. Thank you to both of you – we couldn’t recommend you more!”
Sophie, Surrey, UK | August, 2016
“Tim and Teresa looked after our two old rescue cats while we were away overseas for a family wedding over Easter. Typically, having never needed to visit a vet in the past 3 years, one of our old cats needed treatment just before we left. She was prescribed medication including a cream which had to be applied to her ‘privates’. Tim and Teresa took this in their stride and when it looked like the problem was not clearing up they look her to the vet for further treatment. They were amazing and I cant praise them enough for going above and beyond in their care for our cats and our home”
Jennifer, Surrey, UK | April, 2016
“Tim and Teresa house sat for us in London for just over ten weeks while we went travelling to SE Asia. We had invited them round to meet us first before we decided on getting house sitters and found them both to be delightful, honest and kind.
The whole time we were away we did not worry once about our house, and had regular contact with them if we needed anything (for example, we had some on-going work at the side of the house still being completed and friends and relatives popping around to collect things. None of this was a problem). They also kept in regular contact with my brother regarding our post, as we were expecting some important documents.
When we returned home our house was cleaner and tidier than I think it has ever been! We were greeted by a lovely bunch of flowers and a box of choccies. Very sweet of both of them! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them as house sitters, it was the best thing we did as we knew our home was in safe hands. I hope they enjoyed it too!”
Jo, Streatham, London, UK | March, 2016
“We have just returned from a 4 week trip to Australia leaving our house and kitten in the extremely capable hands of Tim and Teresa. We took to them from the start when we were considering this our first house sit with ‘Trusted sitters’ as they seemed such a lovely warm considerate, genuine couple. Subsequently organising things with them was easy and straightforward and we even managed to meet up before we left for Oz.
While we were away our boiler failed (despite having had it serviced two weeks before). They coped absolutely brilliantly with having to sort this out (and with the cold) keeping us regularly informed of what was going on. While here they made the most of Bristol and got to know some of our neighbours too, who also enjoyed their company a great deal. Elsa our kitten was clearly well looked after too and they left the house clean and ready for our return.
Overall a thoroughly likeable, well organised and capable pair who I’d recommend to anyone for a house/pet sit”
Kate, Bristol, UK | January, 2016
“Tim and Teresa were a delight. They looked after Oscar our cat wonderfully – communication was good and they sent us pictures of Oscar while we were away which was very welcome. The house was very tidy when we got back and everything left very clean. Thank you Tim and Teresa – would highly recommend them as house sitters”
Judy, Hemel Hempstead, UK | December, 2015
“Tim and Teresa cared for Sasha, our dog, in our home in Bath for two weeks and I cannot praise them highly enough. They are a delightful couple who are courteous, conscientious and friendly. They followed all our advice about the house and concerning Sasha’s routine and Sasha was clearly very content with them. The house was extremely well looked after it was a pleasure to return and find everything perfectly organised”
Maggie, Bath, UK | October, 2015
“This was our first time using sitters and we are so glad we chose Tim and Teresa! They took care of our two rescued cats and our home beautifully. They arrived the day before we left which means that we could enjoy a bit of time together, a real bonus! We had a lovely holiday not worried at all about what may happen to our slightly ‘fragile’ cats. We can only warmly recommend this lovely couple to you and look forward to meeting them again soon!”
Frédie and Brett, Godalming, UK | August, 2015
“Teresa & Tim were wonderful house sitters and did a wonderful job of looking after my wee cat Boris. They were very clear and communicative upfront and left the flat as they found it. I felt safe to leave my flat in their hands”
Michelle, Leith, Scotland | July, 2015
“Tim and his partner Teresa are a lovely couple who enjoy meeting new people and go out of their way to help others. I have known Teresa for a long time and can verify that she is *very* tidy as we used to live together. She has also looked after a place in my absence and she’d be the first person I’d go to if I needed it again.
The two them bring out the best in each other and care for other peoples’ things as if they were their own. Being responsible and considerate people, you won’t regret inviting Tim and Teresa into your home”
Chrystia, Hammersmith, London, UK | February, 2015
“Setting up the sitting was easy, as Tim communicated quickly and clearly. He and Teresa arrived when they said they would and the handover went smoothly. Once we were back, after the sitting period, it was to find the house spotless, the plants which they had been watering were thriving and everything was in its place.
I can’t recommend Tim enough and hope that he will sit for me again in the future!”
Jane, Lyttelton, New Zealand | January, 2015
