Matt and Rachel were wonderful. My dog loved them. They provided regular updates about what was happening at our home. When we got home the house was clean and in perfect condition. Will use them every time we need a house sitter (if they are available). We love them.

Rachel and Matt were terrific! We were able to meet with them before sit and make sure both we and they were comfortable with the details. We could not have asked for a more responsive or responsible couple, Mika and Lili were comfortable with their care and spent an inordinate amount of time lap sitting! The details were attended to with care, the house was left in amazing condition, they restored guest space to same condition as upon arrival, washing sheets and towels, remaking beds, etc. ... MORE
