Almost Oldies but Always Goodies



Hi, we are a retired couple from Gippsland in Victoria. we live on 5 acres along with 5 Alpacas and 2 cats.
In 2019 we spent almost a year house sitting in the UK we have had a lot of experience with a wide range of domestic pets.
We have both worked all our lives, including Banking, Post Office, Motel management, and restaurant management. For 5 years prior to retirement my wife was a disability care worker.

Now that things have settled down again after the disruption of Covid, we are looking to see a bit more of our own country.

We are both no smokers. Only drink occasionally.

Dan & Maryke really are five star house sitters :-) It was such a relief to know we had lovely people looking after our home/pets and were kept updated throughout our trip. We would love them to come back and house sit again and would highly recommend their house sitting services. Thanks again

Dan and Maryke were lovely, friendly people, totally accommodating and easy going. Nothing was too much trouble and they slotted into the house straightaway, enabling us to leave shortly afterwards knowing the house was in good hands. The place was left sparkling clean. I would ask them again in a shot to sit for any length of time. We feel very lucky to have found them. Thank you Dan and Maryke.

Really grateful to Dan and Maryke who looked after our house - the cats were well cared for and the house was also well looked after - no hesitation in recommending them. Good communication throughout, thank you.

Thanks for lovely review. Sorry my illness and the weather prevented the maintenance of the garden Look after the car, hope to meet again.
Dan and Maryke looked after our home, pets and plants really well! I'd highly recommend them to other sitters and thank them so much for coming to Bristol.

Marvellous sitters. Easy going, lovely couple who took good care of our cats. Any downside, yes, the cats are still mooching around looking for them!! These are the cats that get temperamental if they see a suitcase. Our laps are now regarded as 2nd best.

Dan and Maryke are a great couple, looked after our house perfectly, our pets loved them! We can recommend them and we really hope to see them again. They are welcome to house/pet sit for us at any time.

Dan and Maryake were excellent sitters and took good care of our springer spaniel who enjoyed lots of walks and attention. They are a pleasant, affable, considerate couple who treated our property with respect and left it in a good, clean and tidy state. I would welcome them back and be more than happy to recommend them to family and friends.
