LOUISE’S REVIEW – Montreal, Quebec, Canada
(Canada House Sitters)
After spending much time under warm skies, Kath and Aaron wanted to experience a ‘winter’. Their wish was more than fulfilled as it turned out to be the coldest and most snowy winter in history. To make matters worse, my snow shoveler never turned up. However, they never complained and got on with dressing up warmly and shovelling. When I came back after 6 weeks in Mexico, the house was spotless, the fridge full and Kath had even cooked a delicious curry for me. My dog Cajou ‘velcroed’ himself to Kath as soon as I had left and had male bonding days with Aaron. He even cried when they left. While away I received regular updates on the house and Cajou and kept in touch through Facetime. Kath and Aaron were wonderful people and great house sitters. I wish they could come back every winter but I think they might choose a slightly warmer place in the future. Some like it hot!

MARY-LYNNE’S REVIEW – Duncan, Canada
(Trusted House Sitters)
5 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
We loved Kath and Aaron! And our cat and dog loved them too! We got frequent emails and photos showing how our creatures were doing. It was a comfort to know they were taking care of our home and pets. The yard was well looked after including the annual autumn raking of the leaves! The house was left in pristine condition, move in ready as they say. A very nice way to to come home after 43 days and 24 hours of flying. We had a thermostat issue while away and it was handled smoothly. We had made an error in booking our sitters (dates) and Kath and Aaron were very flexible and easy to work with. They came a day early to be shown all the trails and to be orientated for our home. We want them to return!

MADELINE’S REVIEW – Dominicalito, Costa Rica
(Trusted House Sitters)
5 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Kath and Aaron took excellent care of my menagerie of of 8 cats and 5 dogs for 8 weeks. They prepared homemade food for them and went on daily walks. They are very capable of administering medications. They were well organized keeping track of expenses and having plenty of food available. Kath was in constant communication with me about the what was happening with my pets. They both truly cared for the well-being of all of the animals and took immaculate care of my home. I would highly recommend Kath and Aaron for your next Trusted Housesitters.

LIZZY’S REVIEW – Victoria, Canada
(Trusted House Sitters)
Kath and Aaron were the best possible dog-sitters. I was reluctant to leave my elderly dachshund for three and half months, but their thoughtfulness made the process bearable. They wrote often to tell us of our dog’s antics, and the emails were both comforting and hilarious. The photos they sent were beautiful. But on a very basic level, there’s nothing like seeing a calm, happy photo of your dog to reassure you he’s fine. He absolutely adored them. The neighbours all loved Kath and Aaron too. They left our house and car sparkling clean. We would have them back at any time. So would our neighbours.

JILL AMATT – Matapalo, Costa Rica
Kath and Aaron managed our small Cabina rental operation and took care of our three dogs for us for one week in February 2018. We found them to be very organized, communicative, reliable and honest.
They took great pride in the work that they did for us and they treated the dogs as if they were their own. Our guests had a lovely time with them and they even became great friends with some of them of which they are still in touch with today.
They also managed our staff member well, and they left our house clean and organized.
We highly recommend them for taking care of a house, pets, or a small business.

FRAN’S REVIEW – Powell River, Canada
Kath is an honest, responsible person. We have a lot of fruit in our yard. I said she could have 1/2 and I would like 1/2. She froze mine which I appreciated very much. We have a large yard which she mowed and watered my flower beds. Our house was very clean when we returned. She housesat from June 2016 – September 2016.

DIANE’S REVIEW – Powell River, Canada
Hello. I am writing to recommend Kath as an excellent, caring and reliable house/pet sitter. Kath was our tenant for 5 years and showed respect and responsibility for her space. Many times over the years, she looked after our house and cat while we were away on short and long term trips. Kath is a true animal lover, and our cat was never disrupted by our time away when Kath was with her. We were never concerned for our house either since as a mature/responsible person and past home owner, we knew that everything would be taken care of if something unexpected showed up. I recommend her without hesitation.

MARILYN’S REVIEW – Powell River, Canada
Kath and her partner Aaron not only did a great job caring for our house and yard, but they did an amazing job caring for our little dog who is disabled. They were so good with him I don’t think he even missed us! They sent me regular video clips of our dog and we were able to enjoy our holiday without worrying.
ALI’S REVIEW – Powell River, Canada
Kath provided exceptional house sitting services while we travelled. We live on an acreage with a water system that means we rely on hand wandering. Our orchards and established perennials would not have survived the drought without her diligent, consistent care. In addition, she picked fruit and tended our vegetable garden. We don’t have pets but she kept an eye on our bird feeders. We came home to a clean and tidy house and an incredible harvest. Our house sitting requirements were quite unusual and fairly demanding yet Kath remained grounded and flexible to our needs. What we really appreciated was her preparation, her organization, and her communication with us. We highly recommend Kath to others needing an honest and reliable house sitter.

Kath and Aaron are very good guests! They took care of the place and followed the rules like it was their own place. Good communication, very quiet, private, clean friendly. They love my pets!
