I've been putting off this review because I don't even know where to start. This was our first time using a housesitter and it took a leap of faith to give it a try. Well, we leapt with the perfect person. Francien provided a flawless service, from keeping in contact before and during the sit, taking care of our beagle's medicine and weird food habits, and generally spoiling them so rotten they were disappointed when we came home! Not to mention she assimilated and got to and around Chicago from out here in the suburbs like a pro! The only problem now is that I can't imagine another sitter could possibly rise up to the bar she has set. She is coming back to the states in 2017 and we plan on being first on her list.

My husband, 2 children and I had some wonderful adventures as we traveled around our beautiful country this past summer. It was an incredible journey and one our family will never forget. We were able to enjoy 39 days on the road with peace of mind knowing that our home, yard, pool, and most of all, our many pets were being well cared for. Francien Daniels Webb is a true blessing. Francien is a retired art teacher from Australia who has spent the last 3 years traveling the world taking care of people's homes and pets while the owners are away. Why does she do it? She loves animals, traveling and experiencing new things. Our family has loved spending time with Francien and have asked her to come back, even if just to visit. Francien does not expect reimbursement. As a homeowner, you must take care of the house bills and supply enough food for the pets. Feel free to Google her name. You will see that many people agree she is an incredible woman. If you are planning to travel ask Francien to look after your home and pets.. you will not be disappointed.

2018 I am here as a guest from the 5th June until the 10th June when the family go on a 6 day holiday then I am back into guest mode until I reluctantly leave 'my family' and all their pets, including Rosie the Tarantula, she was there in 2015 too.

Our housesitter Francien was an AMAZING asset to our family. She brought a demeanor of confidence and reassurance that everything would be fine. She is calm and very easy going. She is there if you need her and does her own thing when you don't. From the minute she entered our home it felt as though she had been a part of our family always. She is a GodSend!!! She has a way with animals that is impressive. She loved our cats and tortoise as if they were her own!!! She followed my specific requests and took it upon herself to clean and help out whererver she saw it appropriate. She took care of my little girl Sphynx (all 3 are Sphynx). My little Jennifer was sick and it didnt phase Francien. She was not bothered by anything. I truly could go on all day about Francien. She will meet the requests you have and add a lot extra! She is generous with her talents and a true joy to have around. We had her stay before and after our trip and honestly hated to see her go! She IS Mary Poppins to us!!!!!!!!! If you are having ANY reservations or have ANY questions please do not hesitate to contact us! We can alleviate any concerns you may have.

Francien was the perfect house and dog sitter for us! She is friendly, reliable, and responsible and did everything we asked for the house and the dogs. She really likes dogs and took such good care of them you could tell they were sad to see her leave at the end of her visit! She left the house cleaner than when she got there. We enjoyed meeting her and chatting with her and highly recommend her as a petsitter. Thank you Francien!

What a godsend Francien is. I could tell after just a short conversation of her love for animals and she came through with my 4 neurotic, persnickety cats! Thank you Francien, for taking wonderful care of our babies and keeping the house clean. Actually, it seemed cleaner when we got back than when we left. I hope our schedules match up again, because you are a jewel.

Francien watched my miniature pinscher while my family was in Europe. If you are looking for a true animal lover to watch your furry friend look no further! Francien is the real deal. She snuggled and slept with my min pin nightly and even took her out on the town to Starbucks and the dog park while we away. She bought her treats and dressed her up in a bandana. When I checked in, she sent me adorable photos of their adventures. Francien left our house cleaner than we left it. She watered and tended to our plants even though we didn't remember to ask. She is a lovely house guest/sitter. We really appreciated the cute "scrubbies" she knitted and gifted when we arrived home. I did not worry once about my pup mourning my absence and the house was well taken care of as well. I highly recommend Francien!

Francien is the most wonderful sitter I could have ever chosen. My fur kids absolutely adore her, and she is a true petgrannie. I have had the pleasure of being with her for a few days before I leave, and we have become dear friends. She is kind, compassionate and truly loves what she does. I am leaving my fur kids in her care with complete peace of mind.
