Kevin is the most reliable, most professional housesitter we have ever had the pleasure of inviting into our home. We returned to a spotless place, the dogs were happy and healthy, he was always in touch, and we never once were concerned about being far from home. We recommend him without hesitation and hope he is available in the future.

Kevin took excellent care of bandit (the dog) and mango (the cat). Bandit can be quite needy re care he needs while I am away and Kevin took excellent care of him. He was great at communicating with me and keeping me in the loop and took great care of the house while I was away. I would highly recommend Kevin for house and pet sits. Kevin was great getting to know you and thank you again for taking such great care of the animals and the house.
