John S. has watched our house for us during long (2+ month) summer vacations for 4 years and has done several shorter sitting jobs for us that included caring for our dog, who adores him. He is honest, kind, careful, neat, and extremely reliable. During our long trips, he has forwarded mail and handled emergencies - a dying AC system, for example. He stayed in the house in February 2021, when the deep freeze caused the house to lose use of water. He collected water from the pool we could use for toilets, etc. He is the perfect house sitter.

John S has been a great and reliable house sitter for us for several years. He has effectively managed issues with the house while we’ve been away. He’s taken great care of our animals and plants and always leaves the house spotless.

Rich Malley

John is extremely reliable and conscientious. Whenever he has house- and pet-sat for us, he has always gone above and beyond. It is such a comfort to be away from home knowing that John is watching over things and taking excellent care of the pets. We have total trust and confidence in him, full stop.
