Our House and Pet Sitting Service

As we travel we love to help others and one of the ways we have done this is through offering ourselves as home and pet sitters.

We’ve sat for home and pet owners around the world and there is nothing like forming long term trusting relationships with people who want us to take care of their beautiful homes and much loved pets.

We provide reliability, care and love for every house sit we do treating peoples homes and pets with the utmost respect.

About Us

We’re the Norman family, travelling full time since selling everything we owned and leaving the UK back at the beginning of 2016 to go out on an amazing family adventure.

Sue ( my wife ) and I decided we wanted to provide a different kind of education and life for Annabel our then 10 year old daughter. An education full of excitement and culture with adventure around every corner.

Our travel has evolved along the way and one of the things we love to be able to offer is our house and pet sitting experience to home/pet owners around the world.

Annabel adores taking care of pets and has so much love and affection to offer them.

We owned properties back in the UK which we kept in tip top condition so we know how to take care of things and have great respect for peoples property and belongings.

    What People Are Saying About Us

    Anne – Peterborough, Ontario, Canada

    Stuart, Sue, and Annabel-Thank you so much for being wonderful, ideal caregivers to Marlene (my dog) and my home while I was away for 2 months. You treated my pet and my home as your own and I came back to both to find them in as good or even better shape than when I left!! You were very respectful of my things, embraced the opportunity, and with excitement explored our wintry wonderland living life to the full.
    I really hope we will meet again. In the meantime, enjoy your adventure!! Best wishes, Anne & Marlene

    Christopher – Bronxville, New York, USA

    Stuart, Sue and Annabel were wonderful house and pet sitters. It was a pleasure to meet them, and I felt completely comfortable leaving everything in their hands when we left for two weeks. In fact, as we began to get reports and photos of their adventures with our dog, I worried that they were raising the bar for dog care (in the dog’s eyes). I was right.
    We returned to find a happy dog and cat, as well as a spotless home. I would be delighted to have them stay again.

    Emma – Kingston, Ontario, Canada

    Stuart, Sue, and Annabel are truly an amazing family. They expertly cared for our home and 3 pets during our trip to Europe. The Normans cared for our dog and two cats as if they were their own, giving long walks and lots of affection. Regular updates with photos were sent during our trip to keep us informed. We also arrived home to an immaculate house which was such a treat after a long journey. This thoughtful, funny, and warm family are incredible, and we cannot recommend them enough. Thank you, Stuart, Sue, and Annabel!

    Sandra – San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

    Stuart, Sue and Annabel are delightful! They took superb care of my two cats and my house. I returned to from my travels to two nine year old cats romping and playing with Annabel and an immaculately clean house. I will definitely be contacting them again.

    Andrew – Perth, Western Australia

    Stuart, Sue and Annabel are great pet sitters! They looked after our 2 cats during June and July 2016, and we couldn’t have been happier. We had never used pet sitters before and feel that these guys really set a very high standard for any further pet sitters we use. Annabel grew very fond of our little cats, as did Stuart and Sue, and they were sad to have to say goodbye. Along with this, the house was left totally spotless and the garden was extremely well looked after, much better than we normally look after it! Would be very happy to have these guys back and would highly recommend them as pet sitters!

    Amy – Hove, United Kingdom

    Stuart , Annabel and Sue came to look after our house and cat for 9 days . They brought their own bedding and towels which was very considerate, and left the house very clean. Stuart kept in regular contact with me to let me know our cat was well and I felt very secure with them there. They are obviously a very considerate and ethical family and this was a great experience for us as we are new to house sitting. I recommend them wholeheartedly!
