We are a retired couple with intentions of traveling all over the country. Bill owned a pet sitting service for several years and managed 30 sitters, and was director of technology and training in materials management. Susan has helped neighbors/friends/family with caring for pets from bunnies to birds. Susan is a stylist but retired from beer and wine management for a local grocer.

For the first time in 40 years we are pet less and this form of travel will give us our pet fix and adventure all in one. We are healthy and active and will care for your pets as our own; we love bed buddies, and will take very good care of your home as well.

We had Henley, a corgi mix for 12.5 yrs and rescued a cat Trixi and she passed after 10 yrs. We also rescued a cat Lucci who we lost after 19 yrs. Last but not least we saved an older dog Charlie Bear and had him for 2.5 years. We said when our pets were gone we would start traveling. I can't tell you how much we miss them. So when I say we will take good care of your pets, I mean love them like ours!

We like animals, food experiences, hiking, anything outdoors, new adventures, people, movies, reading...just living fully.

We are non smoking, drug free, clean and respectful of the environment, professional and highly reliable. Your pets come first! The goal is to assure your peace of mind while you are away from your pets.

We can be reached by phone, Skype, Zoom or WhatsApp.
We are both fully vaccinated.

Susan and Bill were fabulous Housesitters. They loved on my dog Rosie and I'm sure she was sorry to see them go! They took fabulous care of my home! Lovely people who are happy to share their experiences, and are conscientious in their commitment.
MARIALYCE ( Michigan, Apr 2024 - 2 weeks 1 night)
Susan took wonderful care of our home and our pets. Our GSD is young and a bit needy, but she took excellent care of him. Our home was in immaculate condition when we returned. Communication was excellent throughout the process. We were able to relax and enjoy our get away knowing the "kids" were in great hands. She definitely went above and beyond. 100% recommend!
MOOSE ( Virginia, Oct 2023 - 4 nights)
Bill and Sue were awesome, They came the night before we left to observe the routines we have with our animals. We received pictures and videos while we were gone. They administered medications to our dog, Max, without problems. It is obvious that they love animals. Our home was neat and clean when we returned. They will forever be in our favorites list.

It was so much fun meeting you both! Hope all is well.
We loved having Susan and Bill return to Athens for a second time. They, once again, took wonderful care of our kitties and our home - with Bill impressing us as he referred to his own notes from last time. They are a pleasure to be around - so fun, kind and thoughtful - and they definitely gave us the opportunity to enjoy time away with confidence that our kitties and home were in good hands. We feel fortunate to now have them in our circle of friends and look forward to booking them again!

Rating: 5.0 YOUR REVIEW OF THEM: Sue and Bill are the absolute best Housesitters we've ever had. They did a wonderful job communicating with us, sending frequent emails, photos and videos! They also responded quickly whenever we reached out. And they left our home in perfect condition inside and out - even going so far as to cut the grass & sweep the garage! In every possible way, they went above and beyond our expectations. Most importantly, it was clear that our dog Galette was incredibly ... MORE

Thanx again for choosing us! I may reconsider winters;-). Hugs all around!
This was my first experience using this service, and Bill and Susan were amazing house/petsitters! They went above and beyond our expectations! One of my kitties is very shy with strangers, and in no time, they had her comfortable and hanging out around them. They sent lots of pictures and communication, as I requested. The house was immaculate when we got home, and they even left us some wonderful surprise gifts! They made returning from vacation really nice. I couldn't recommend them ... MORE
EMILY (Savannah Georgia, Jun 2022 - 2 weeks)
We enjoyed our time there..please let's stay in touch!
Susan & Bill are excellent house sitters! They went above and beyond - I came back to a cleaner house and neater yard than what I left. Although I took my dogs on vacation with me, Susan & Bill did get to meet them and it's clear they are dog lovers! They also helped out when issues came up in my attached Airbnb. They have my highest recommendations!
CATHY (Cocoa Beach Florida, Sep 2021 - 3 weeks)
Susan and Bill were exceptional housesitters. There was good communication from the start along with thoughtful attention to detail re the pets and house. It was so evident that my fur family was well cared for and loved. Thank you so much Susan and Bill
JUDY ( California, May 2021 - 1 week 5 days)
Susan and Bill are top notch sitters! They took fabulous care of my son's flat in New Orleans and kittens for two weeks. They are warm, flexible, and the communication was great. I was so impressed that I plan to invite them to stay at my home in Washington State the next time I travel. This was a great first house sit using We also really appreciated their sensitivity to COVID-19. They did a thorough wipe down of the flat before they left - and left it cleaner ... MORE
KATIE (Louisiana Missouri, Nov 2020 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Susan and Bill are amazing house/pet sitters. From our initial contact to the actual face to face meeting, we knew they were going to be the perfect sitters for our home and pets. After a short time of being together, we felt like we had known them for years. They are friendly, positive, organized, and were eager to learn my routine. The house was in great condition when we returned and they even cleaned up the guest bedroom and bathroom. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone ... MORE
TERRI ( Florida, Oct 2020 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Susan and Bill allowed us to be away from our new home and cats for a month without any worry about anything back at home. We really enjoyed their company in our time together for orientation before our departure. They are fun, interesting, easy going and made us feel at ease quickly. We very much appreciated the extra touches they provided before departure to help us get our vacation started, during their stay to know things were going well and upon return to find happy cats and a clean, ...

No rating Bill and Susan communicated very well before arriving and when we returned the house was in perfect shape. I appreciated the weekly notes from Bill that kept us informed and in touch. I recommend Susan and Bill to anyone who wants a top quality house sitter.
EDWIN ( South Carolina, Sep 2019)
No rating Susan and Bill took great care of our dog, Daisey, and our home as well. The house was the cleanest it has ever been after returning from a trip. They were extremely conscientious and even took care of a dead snake that had gotten itself wrapped up in a garden hose reel. They kept in close touch with us. Highly recommend them and would definitely use them again.
JAN ( Virginia, Sep 2019)
No rating Having Susan and Bill Housesit for me gave me the peace of mind I needed! Not only was this my first experience with this kind of service, it was a hectic time for me. They were so flexible, responsible, mindful and delightful to work with and to get to know. Chandler was so well taken care of and attended to. Would love to have them come sit again someday -- no doubt Chandler agrees!
CHARLENE ( Virginia, Aug 2019)
No rating a lovely couple very capable of handling anything. No worry having such a great couple.
ANNE ( Maryland, Aug 2019)
No rating Susan and Bill are a delightful couple. They took great care of our elderly pup and our home. We received cute pictures throughout our trip of Ms. Daisy having a lovely vacation of her own. She was sad to see them go! Such an awesome experience with some really nice people. They are conscientious visitors and left our home cleaner than they found it. We'd definitely have them stay again in a heartbeat!
NICOLE ( Virginia, Jul 2019)
No rating Wow! Susan & Bill were nothing less than perfect sitters! They are very conscientious and thorough in their preparations for sitting and make sure all possible situations are covered. They contacted us with updates and photos of our fur babies throughout our trip, which was greatly appreciated. They willingly stayed until the early morning to accommodate our flight plans. We returned at 6:00 AM to a spotless house, freshly changed sheets, and not only fed but also freshly bathed dogs! ... MORE
ROBIN ( Florida, Apr 2019 - 5 days)
No rating Susan and Bill recently took care of my house and 2 crazy pups for a few days. I would highly recommend them to others, as they are communicative, very friendly and trustworthy, conscientious, punctual, and just very nice people! They left the house in clean condition, and the dogs told me they were given lots of hugs and kisses, and the attention they deserve. Hope Susan and Bill can return sometime for another visit!
GRACIA ( Arizona, Apr 2019 - 3 days)
No rating Bill and Susan were awesome! Murphy the dog loved them and they sent me pics to make me feel better about leaving him, they took care of my cats and my house and I hardly even thought of it all since I was so relaxed with them being there. Would love to have them back again!
MARILYN ( Washington, Apr 2019 - 1 week)
No rating Susan and Bill took excellent care of our home. They loved and spoiled our dog like it was their own. When we returned our home was cleaner than I have ever seen it, sparkling. Our dog was exhausted and happy. I would be honored to have them sit for us again in the future. They are a lovely, sweet, responsible and truly sincere couple.
SUNNY ( Washington, Mar 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating Absolutely fabulous house sitters! They left our house in better condition than what we left it in. Our old doggos were well loved and we received lots of picture updates throughout the stay. Would definitely use them again :).
LAUREN ( Washington, Mar 2019 - 1 week)
No rating As Susan & Bill have left such a lovely endorsement first, I'm left with no choice but to return the compliment. Only joking of course! This was our first foray into working with a house sitter. Talk about striking gold first time! Susan and Bill are completely professional in their approach. This not only applied to our pets but also all aspects of our home. Their approach allowed us to go on vacation nearly 5,000 miles away with complete confidence that everything will be great at ...
