28th April 2019 - 30th September 2019
Marcel and Aleta looked after our property and dogs for several months in the summer of 2019. How lucky were we! They were perfect house sitters, positive and happy people, totally honest, 100% reliable, who did the job brilliantly.
Our main concern was the two dogs – one a large Labrador mix, the other a smaller Labrador. They bonded with them instantly, took them for daily walks, and generally looked after them when we were not around.
Marcel and Aleta arrived in the early summer, just as the grass took off on its annual growth spurt. They did a sterling job keeping everything under control, cheerfully leaping onto the ride on mowers on an almost daily basis, doing a pas de deux over the lawns. Marcel’s talents are many. Internet or computer problems resolved in a couple of clicks. Small little jobs around the house were executed without being asked. But the very best thing of all was their cooking skills which we were able to enjoy with gusto. What a team!
When this highly efficient couple left, the cottage was in a gleaming state of cleanliness, the garden looking better than ever. Delightful people who have become good friends, whom we can thoroughly recommend as efficient, reliable, honest and cheerful. We and the dogs were very sad to see them go at the end of their stay. If you manage to snap them up to house and dog sit for you, you will certainly not be disappointed.
We would be very happy to communicate directly should you wish to do so. Please reach out to Aleta and Marcel for contact details.
