More information about this house sitter

I respond within the day, my reply rating went down when I was on holiday.
I am a trustworthy and pet caring person who will give you peace of mind when you are away from your loving home and animals. I am a full-time house-sitter. I looked after houses and animals over 30 times and have given 100 % satisfaction to homeowners. Many called me back as they loved the way I took care of their place and their favourite animals. Here are some extracts from the numerous testimonies I received:

"The dogs were happy and well cared for, and the house was spotless on our return." - J'aime & Michael

"We came home to a totally relaxed, happy, contented cat." - Michelle & David

"Our garden had clearly been tended with tender loving care and everything was thriving." - Anne & Jim

"Fay had done an exceptional job cleaning and getting everything washed." - Michelle & David

"We won't even consider anyone else to look after our home and dog." - Katie and Michael

"I have no hesitation in heartily recommending Fay as house sitters." - Mark

You can read more endorsements further below. Please note that most house owners referred to my husband and me, but we recently decided to go our separate way and are house-sitting on our own.

I am a non-smoker and responsible. You will find your nest in the same state as you left it. I like to keep my living space clean and tidy.

I love animals and will be more than happy to take great care of yours. I have lived with animals throughout my life and took care of many while house-sitting including dogs, cats, rabbits, fish and chooks. Take a look at my photo gallery to see animals I have been taking care of since I started house-sitting full-time.

I can take care of your garden and veggie patch too! I am a farm hand trained in biodynamic gardening and loves spending time growing herbs, fruits and vegetables.

You will leave your house in safe hands. I can provide a police check if necessary.

Kind regards,

Below are endorsements my husband and me received on this website, on another house-sitter website (with the star-rating) or in private.

★★★★★ From Lorraine & Wayne (Cherry Gardens, SA, December 2018)

"Thankyou Fay and Florent, it was geat to feel at ease knowing our house garden and most important our dog Toby was cared for and he was happy. Happy Christmas!"

★★★★★ From Leonie (Melrose Park, SA, November 2018)

"Florent and Fay were great house sitters. The cats the house and the garden were well cared for. The house was clean and tidy when I got home and the cats were healthy and happy. Florent was very particular about instructions and checked with me if he wasn't sure about something. I also got updates while I was away. I would highly recommend Florent and Fay if you want your house garden and pets cared for."

★★★★★ From Robyn (Payneham, SA, July 2018)

"Fay and Florent housesat for me, for six weeks, while I was overseas in August/September 2018. They cared for my house as if it were their own, leaving it neat and tidy, including washing all the linen they'd used before my return. My two cats were well cared for, being settled and in good health when I arrived home. They collected the mail and watered the garden as required. I'd recommend Fay & Florent to other members, as they're experienced housesitters who will care for your house and pets to your complete satisfaction."

★★★★★ From J'aime & Michael (Athelstone, SA, April 2018)

"Florent and Fay were absolutely fantastic house sitters. They looked after our house and two dogs for 5 weeks. The dogs were happy and well cared for and the house was spotless on our return. We have two large dogs who need daily walks and Florent and Fay kept to their normal routine without any issues. Florent kept in regular contact with us and we're very easy to get on with. We appreciated the little touches of the plants growing for us and jurlique treats. We would highly recommend having Florent and Fay look after your house and pets and we would definitely use them again in the future."

★★★★★ From Chris & Tamara (Valley View, SA, March 2018)

"Florent and Fay were the best. They were so professional and organised in all aspects of the sit. Our dogs loved them and it was such a relief knowing our house and pets were safe and sound. We will definitely have them house sit again."

★★★★★ From Michelle & David (Stirling, SA, Septembre 2017)

"Fay and Florent house sat for a month, looking after our difficult Bengal cat Rana and a large garden full of vege beds, fruit trees and ornamentals. Our cat has a rather 'quirky' personality, being part wild cat at times, and always very demanding, vocal, attention seeking and interactive. He requires special managing, a gentle touch, people with quiet energies and people that notice all the little details.

After some previous holidays, we had come home to a cat that was rather anxious, strung out and upset. With Fay and Florent, we came home to a totally relaxed, happy, contented cat. We had regular photos during our holidays, showing him sleeping on their bed or relaxing in various spots. In each one, you could see how he was interacting with the person taking the photo - in a good way.

Then there was the garden. Fay took fabulous care of everything. There were a number of newly planted seeds, seedlings and trees, which were carefully tended. She even planted more seeds, where some had not germinated. Then there were our tomatoes, being started inside in jiffy pots. 2 different types of watering systems throughout the property. And a range of pot plants inside and out.

Everything was perfect when we got back.

Then the final icing on the cake. The house was immaculately clean when we got home. A great way to finish your holiday! Fay had done an exceptional job cleaning and getting everything washed. The house was just as we left it. We were so happy, we have already booked our flights for next year and have asked Fay and Florent to stay again. We will be so sad when they stop house sitting."

★★★★★ From Jackie & Jonas (Bridgewater, SA, July 2017)

"Florent and Fay took amazing care of our two little dogs, chooks and our house. They managed our dogs' slightly eccentric behaviours with patience and care, and the house looked great when we got back from our holiday. They communicated very clearly with us before we left so we felt very confident to leave our precious boys with them. They are a lovely young couple and we would definitely use them again."

★★★★★ From Chris & Nikki (Welland, SA, April 2017)

"Florent and his partner were lovely house sitters for our house and two cats. They were happy to give medication to one of our cats, and everything was clean and tidy on our return."

★★★★★ From Anne & Jim (Aldgate, SA, December 2016)

"Fay and Florent house and dog sat for us for almost three weeks recently and I have nothing but praise for them. They looked after the house as I would do, all nice and clean upon our return. Our garden had clearly been tended with tender loving care and everything was thriving. The greatest endorsement comes from our three spoilt and attention seeking dogs who were clearly well looked after. Florent called the vet when one of the dogs was unwell. When Fay called in a few days after the sit concluded the dogs were very happy to see her. I have nothing but praise for both Florent and Fay who are lovely gentle people who obviously love animals. I would highly recommend them and have booked them for three more sits this year!"

★★★★★ From Robert & Jill (Campbelltown, SA, December 2016)

"Fay and Florent were wonderful custodians of our home, our pet and our garden. They helped to make our lovely holiday even better."

★★★★★ From Ruth & Mark (Rostrevor, SA, October 2016)

"Fay and Florent looked after our home and animals whilst we travelled overseas for 4 weeks in October/November 2016. Our dogs were happy and relaxed when we arrived home, our home looked great and the garden looked wonderful. The fish tank was sparkling. Fay has added some new plants to the garden so we are looking forward to the harvest in December! We would welcome them back to stay anytime we are away and are happy to recommend them as house sitters. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are considering Fay and Florent to look after your home."

◼ From Peter & Judy (Campbelltown, SA, March 2017)

"Fay and Florent stayed in our house to take care of our Spoodle and to mind the house and tend our garden. We were away for 13 nights and we were delighted that our dog did not suffer separation anxiety, she had a lovely time with them! Our home was also cared for beautifully, everything was clean and tidy. Fay even planted some seedlings for us! Thanks so much to you both!"

◼ From Davide & Jenni (Meadows, SA, November 2016)

"Fay and Florent looked after our house and animals for three weeks. They were very keen to run the house like we do so there was no disruption to our pets, everything went well and considering one of our cats had a leg amputated the week before we went away it was reassuring to have a couple who love cats to take care of the patient. Everything was as it should be on our return and the animals all looked happy so we would highly recommend Fay and Florent as house sitters."

◼ From Katie and Michael (South Plympton, SA, March 2018)

"Florent and Fay were definitely great house and pet sitters! When we first met them both, they were great with Oi (our dog) and asked a lot of questions which made us feel at ease. Florent came back to our house prior to us leaving to go over a few things to make sure he was 100% sure with the instructions we gave them.
While we were away on our holiday there were a few minor issues that were resolved quickly with a message from Florent to assure us it was all ok. We were sent a couple of pictures of Oi as we missed her a lot and it definitely didn't look like she missed us! LOL
We came home to a cleaner house then we left it and Oi was well fed.

Next time we go on holidays we won't even consider anyone else to look after our home ad dog.

Thank you Florent and Fay for making it easy for us to trust you both."

◼ From Lee and Martin (Marden, SA, January 2018)

"Florent and Fay had a near 3-week stay looking after both the house and our young cat. They prepared for their stay seeking to understand all the requirements and during the preliminary meetings obtained notes and pointers. While we were away Florent remained very reactive to messages providing assurance on the welfare of our cat. On our return to the house, it was found as it was left - clean, tidy and gardens taken care of which would not have been an easy task given the summer growth.

We would recommend Florent and Fay for any prospective house sit."

◼ From Anke & Stewart (Beaumont, SA, October 2017)

"We are delighted with the care that Florent and Fay took of our home whilst we were on holiday. On our return, everything was in its usual location and the dozens of indoor plants and outdoor pot plants looked healthy and well looked after. Moreover, the house was even cleaner and tidier than we had left it. We found Fay and Florent to be honest, caring and reliable and we strongly recommend them to anyone looking for housesitters. We have already booked them twice for next year!"

◼ From Vanessa & Thomas (Bridgewater, SA, June 2017)

"Fay and Florent were wonderful house and dog sitters. Our dogs were settled and happy on our return. They had followed all of our instructions regarding the dogs. The house was also in good shape. They left it clean and tidy especially our numerous windows. I would recommend them wholeheartedly"

◼ From Mark (Upper Sturt, SA, August 2016)

"Fay and Florent recently house sat and looked after my house, garden and animals for a month. They are caring, responsible people and not only was the house immaculate on my return but the garden had been looked after so well it was in better condition than before I left and the animals were obviously well cared for. I have no hesitation in heartily recommending Fay and Florent as house sitters."

From Mike and Pauline (Craigburn Farm, SA, December 2018)
"Many thanks to Fay Paillot for being a wonderful house and dog sitter over the Christmas break. Fay went the extra yard to understand how best to manage our leafy garden, ageing terrier and home. She gave us a strong sense of comfort, and left the house in fantastic condition. We will cheerfully contact Fay well in advance of our next trip, to see if she is free."
