To: The Prospective Pet/Home Owner
Rayna and Phil (Donnelly) pet (dog) sat for us in March 2018.
Rayna and Phil each have a very open and warm personality. Most importantly, they presented as having not only genuine care and affection toward our pet, but also, a highly professional manner toward both pet sitting and the care of our home.
The Donnelly’s listened attentively regarding the specific needs of our dog and the general care of our home. They also initiated many clarifying questions as well as clarity regarding emergency contacts in our absence with regard to general and/or emergency attention for our pet and in respect to our home (if required), including security such as keys etc. Further, Rayna and Phil ensured they had a couple of options for communicating with us while we were OS.
The Donnelly’s were flexible re the pet sit start date when our flight was rescheduled at the last minute. This was very appreciated given the uncertainty at the time.
During our time away Rayna communicated regularly (with photos) to put our minds at ease. It was evident in these communications that Rayna was very understanding and accommodating of our pet’s little ways and quirks.
We arrived home to both a very happy dog and very clean home. The garbage bins had been collected off the street; pot plants were still alive and well; mail collected; pool was well maintained; and all linen used including sheets were washed and dried prior to our arrival home.
We would highly recommend Rayna and Phil to others who are seeking a pet sitter in their home.

Rayna and Phil, thank you for taking such good care of our home
and pets. While you were strangers to us upon our departure,
it felt like old friends or family were living in our home.
The pictures and updates that you sent provided peace of mind
and we had a wonderful, care free, 3 week holiday. Extra odd jobs
were completed and we came home to a beautifully clean house
with freshly baked blueberry muffins waiting for us! I can’t
recommend you highly enough and would love to have you take
are of our beloved fur babies again.
There are no words to express our gratitude and our lives have
been enriched from meeting you and having you in our home.

Rayna and Phil were absolutely fabulous. While we were away on
holiday we received regular snaps of our fur baby that made us laugh
and feel completely at ease knowing she was receiving plenty of love
and attention. We came home to a spotless house, a letter updating
us on everything from mail deliveries to power outages as well as
some delicious chocolate muffins – which were amazing after a 25-
hour flight. They really went above and beyond in making sure our
home & fur baby were well looked after. Rayna was even kind
enough to log onto my computer and email me some documents
that I had forgotten to take on the trip. Overall Rayna & Phil are the
loveliest people you could ever meet. They were reliable, responsible
and totally professional throughout the entire process and I would
not hesitate in recommending them to our closest friends and family.

In November 2017 we had Rayna and Phil house sit our house and two cats whilst we were
on holidays for three weeks.
Rayna and Phil were perfect house sitters. They maintained our house in immaculate
condition and watered all our plants together with maintaining our outdoor spa.
Rayna and Phil took great care of our two cats especially when one had to be taken to the
vet and required daily medication which Rayna and Phil happily provided.
It was comforting to know that our house and two cats were in such capable hands
They even left a delicious cooked meal in the fridge on our return from holidays
We can thoroughly recommend Rayna and Phil as house sitters

HOUSE SITTERS REFERENCE: Rayna and Phil Donnelly
Rayna and Phil took care of our home while we were away for 5 days in Jan 2017. We had
never had strangers housesit for us before, so we were a bit nervous about selecting the
right people for the job. We are so happy with our choice in Rayna and Phil, they are
everyone’s dream sitters! What you see is what you get – a joyous couple who love life and
people and who have no other agenda but to enjoy living in a new space and embracing all
the changes and challenges coming their way. Animal lovers, they followed all the directions
left for them in caring for our cat, chickens and pool, and left behind them an atmosphere of
peace and order, having dealt effectively with a saga involving a rat in the pool skimmer, a
40 degree heat wave, and our Chickens running out of water 3 times a day! Rayna kept us
updated throughout their stay, but not in a stressful way, they had everything under control
and just kept us informed, it was great. We arrived back to a spotless home and a lovely
meal left for us in the fridge, our pets were happy and content, the pool was lovely and
clean. I can only hope that they will be available next time so that we can go away with
peace of mind come back to a clean and loved home at the end of it!
