Description of service

My recent vacation left me with a house uncared for with plants that needed watering. I decided to call in a house sitter. I didn't really know if I trusted a friend or a professional service more. I decided to go with a professional service that was licensed and insured for my own safety and security. I located one in the phone book and called for a quote. It was reasonable so I set up a time to meet with my new house sitter. She came to the house and took down some notes and we agreed it was a good match.

Review of Service

She arrived to my house the morning I left to check in with me one last time to see if there were last minute instructions. I left a list of numbers and things to do everyday for her on the countertop. When I arrived home she had separated the mail piles by day it was received, which was very helpful when finding the bills that were due. My plants had not died, which was wonderful! She even through in extra cleaning that was a pleasant surprise! My home smelled so fresh and I wanted to keep her forever!


I lucked out with the phone book but it is always a good idea to get recommendations. I will definately refer others to this service!
