TESTIMONIAL

We felt very much at ease when first meeting Ian and Nicky. But, more importantly, our dogs, Max and Roxy, became at ease with them – especially our girl, Roxy, who at times can take quite a while to get used to new people. Nicky and Ian did a great job looking after our house and all three of our pets. They even cooked a lovely meal for us when we got back. I would have no hesitation in recommending these guys tom look after your house and your pets.

TESTIMONIAL

Nicky and Ian were so organised – we had a couple of chats via skype before they arrived and they had a comprehensive list for me to complete, which made it much easier when they arrived. Whilst we were away they sent updates on the dogs and photos too, which was a nice touch. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them as housesitters. The fact that Ian also cut the lawn in our large garden was the icing on the cake for my husband!

TESTIMONIAL

Nicky and Ian sat our house and large pet family (3 dogs and a cat) for 10 days while we were away in August 2019.

From the start they gave us the confidence that they would be the perfect sitters for our pets. We chatted on skype a couple of times before they sat and we could tell from the beginning that they were conscientious and very thorough.  They read through the information manual that I sent them before their arrival and asked questions where clarification was required.

Everything that they promised to do they carried out, from arriving on time, to keeping us updated on our pets during our absence (sending us photos and anecdotes).

When my husband returned, even though on an early morning flight, they had very kindly already washed all the bedding and cleaned the house!  The animals obviously enjoyed their company and attention and seemed to miss them after their departure.

We rate Ian and Nicky very highly, from pre-arrival communication, to the care and attention that they paid to our pets and home during their stay.

I recommend them without hesitation.  They are the perfect couple to housesit your home and pets.10/10.

TESTIMONIAL

 
Nicky and Ian, thank you so very much for being there for our 2 senior cats, who aren’t the cuddliest, but you knew how to handle them perfectly. The many plants have never been in better condition and the swimming pool is now sparkling clean. You are a delightful couple, making us feel so comfortable and giving us peace of mind during our absence with your permanent updates. We could not have asked for any better care ! Wishing you all the best in your future adventures and house sits.

TESTIMONIAL

Nicky and Ian Mackenzie house sat for us for a month. They did an excellent job and were very conscientious, asking many questions about how we do things and how every thing worked. Nicky even took pictures of drawers and cupboard contents so that they could put everything they used back in the right place. We gave them the run of the place and the use of our vehicle, which they looked after and treated like home. They really did a good job looking after our house and cleaned it for us for so that on our return it was spic and span.
In short, we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else as house sitters!

TESTIMONIAL
We recently had need of a house/pet sitter and were extremely fortunate to find Nicky and Ian Mackenzie. They were absolutely marvellous from the very beginning. We have three dogs and three cats but that did not deter them. And, for the entire month that we were gone, they kept us fully informed about our pets. Indeed, we feel fortunate to have found two extremely competent, responsible, enthusiastic, and caring people to watch over our “furry family” while we were gone. And, without hesitation, we wholeheartedly recommend them as house/pet sitters.

Cookie (cat)

TESTIMONIAL
Ian and Nicky looked after our cat, Cookie whilst we went on a short break and made every effort to ensure he was well fed and watered – and with plenty of love and affection thrown in for good measure. He just loves lots of attention and can be quite demanding on that front!
Our house was immaculately clean and tidy when we returned and Cookie had a happy, smug expression which assured us that we had made the right decision in choosing Ian and Nicky for this assignment! If that wasn’t enough, we arrived home to a lovely curry they’d prepared – one of their speciality dishes picked up after many months of travelling the world. The Mackenzies are a lovely, warm couple with plenty of interesting tales to tell from their travels. We trust them implicitly and wouldn’t hesitate to have them back again or recommend them to anyone looking for house/pet sitters.

TESTIMONIAL
Ian and Nicky are a lovely couple who instilled confidence in us the moment they arrived that they were going to do a great job looking after our dogs and guinea pigs! They did not disappoint. We had a relaxed evening meal with them and thoroughly enjoyed their company before setting off on our holiday knowing that our animals and home were in good hands. We came back to a gorgeous home cooked meal and an immaculate house, not to mention happy and well cared for animals! I would invite them back in a heartbeat and would thoroughly recommend them for any housesit.

PETS
Bertie (dog)

TESTIMONIAL
Ian and Nicky house sat for us for a month. Our prime requirement was that they look after our dog, Bertie, who was abandoned and rescued by us when he was a one-year-old. Because of this, he suffers from separation anxiety. Ian and Nicky looked after him extremely well. They were mindful of this problem and took him everywhere with them. They gave him lots of walks and affection and we returned to find a very happy and well looked after dog. We could not have asked for more and would thoroughly recommend them to look after animals.

TESTIMONIAL
What a lucky day for us when Ian and Nicky responded to our advert! Such a responsible, warm and caring couple who looked after our pets with obvious affection and conscientiousness. It was obvious that animal routines had been followed carefully but it was also plain that all of them had been given much additional love and time. On our return, we found the house immaculate and a delicious meal prepared which we all enjoyed together. We were delighted when they stayed a few extra days with us. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
