Ellen and Bernie are a lovely, responsible couple who took excellent care of my house and my two dogs whilst I was away working. I came back to two very happy dogs and a cooked meal. I have no hesitation in highly recommending them. 28 Sep – 7 Oct 2016

Ellen and Bernie did a wonderful job taking care of my home, and my 2 dogs and cat. One of my dogs has health issues that requires several feedings and medications throughout the day and they accommodated the schedule and managed giving meds without any problems. My dogs were well exercised, happy and comfortable with them. I really enjoyed meeting Ellen and Bernie, and found them to both be caring and conscientious people. I appreciated their daily updates, which gave me peace of mind. They were very respectful of my home and my requests. This was my first experience using a sitter from trustedhousesitters and I think I’ve been spoiled! 🙂 I couldn’t have asked for more, and I highly recommend them.

Bernie and Ellen house sat for us at our villa in Costa Rica prior to building their place. They are trustworthy and reliable. They took care of our villa like it was their own home. It’s clear that Ellen is well organized and loves plants and enjoys taking care of them, and Bernie took on a number of small fix-it projects without asking that simply made the house “work better”. They are a great couple and any home owner would be lucky to have them care for their home.

Bernie and Ellen always treat their stays at our cottage like it was their own home. Whether it’s walking Brooke (our golden doodle) or taking on fix-it projects (that have been hanging around that we never get to), our cottage is always a better place once this dynamic duo visits.

I have known Ellen and Bernie for over 15 years and can confidently recommend them as house sitters. Rest assured that this couple would look after your home as if it were their own. They are kind, trustworthy, resourceful, reliable and very considerate. Ellen is wonderful with my black lab, Layla, who is now 11 years old. Layla always looks forward to seeing Ellen and enjoys going for walks along the local hiking trails in my area.  Bernie is a godsend when it comes to fixing things around the house and has very high standards, particularly with regard to lawn care and home repair. I would be more than comfortable to have Ellen and Bernie care for my home and my dog while I am away.

Really appreciated all the care Ellen and Bernie took while I was away – On their own initiative they took on some cleaning and repair projects that really made a difference to the place – A real pleasant surprise!

I have known Ellen and Bernie for over 15 years. They are a great couple and good company. They have spent many a weekend staying at my cottage and always pitch in to clean and tidy.  They are intelligent and thoughtful, and determined to make a positive difference.

Bernie has been a big help with projects to maintain and improve the house. Every year we can count on him to help put out the docks in the spring and pull them out at the end of the summer.

I would recommend Ellen & Bernie to anyone looking for a professional and caring couple to look after their home.

I have known Bernie and Ellen for over 12 years and count on them as good friends. Part of that friendship has included lots of great dinners together and we can always look forward to lively and interesting conversation across a wide range of topics. They are solid responsible people and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to take care of your home while you travel.

I’ve known Bernie for over thirty years and I can say that you can always count on him for his energy, reliability and readiness to take on projects, whether on the home front or on assignment.
