We love Housesitting & looking after your Animals!

Ever since we looked after a house in Spain with 17 chickens, 2 dogs and 4 cats, we are in love with Housesitting. All 4 of us are real animal-lovers. We have a cat and a few chickens back in Holland. Ever since the kids were little, they have liked everything that has to do with animals. Unfortunately, we could not have a lot of them in our house and small garden. Now that we are (almost) traveling, it’s even more complicated to take animals with us, so we made it as one of ours travel-goals to take care of a lot of animals! We are all cuddle-ready!

But it is not only about animals of course. We really enjoy taking good care of someone else’s property; House, Garden, Crops, or even run your B&B for a while. We have experience ourselves in renting out a house and taking care of guests and Alex’ has an agricultural background. We’re up for all kind of chores. Please let us know!

We teach our kids that respect for someone else’s property as well as for nature & animals is very important! We would love to see the world while helping you. Taking care of your house, so you can have a great and relaxed time making nice memories.

And we will make some new ones for sure as well!

Reviews Housesitting:


December 2018 South of Portugal (Algarve)

>> 14 days: Looking after 2 lovely dogs, 2 lovely cats, and lot’s of chickens, on the countryside.

“We asked Inge and Alex to come to our farm in Algarve in order to take care of our animals and chicken for 2 weeks, during December month. The whole family was extremely nice and caring. They took very good care of our 2 dogs (a malinois and a shih tzu) and both our cats. They gave them love and attention and that is what counts for us! We thank them very much for this time and I highly recommend this trustworthy family to take care of any house and pet in the future.”


July 2018 South of France (Pyrenees)

>> 10 days: Looking after 2 lovely cats, a house and big veggie garden, remote in the mountains.
“Alex and Inge were excellent, resourceful and trustworthy house sitters. The family lived in our house for 2 weeks, communicating brilliantly and taking wonderful care of the house and garden. They also helped us immensely in exceptional circumstances during this time.
The two cats were obviously adored by Inge and Alex and their young family and vis a versa. We felt very safe with the family looking after our beautiful cats (and in particularly one requiring extra love and attention).
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this family to take care of your home and animals. If you would like any further information please feel free to contact us via Alex and Inge.” Sally and Mike


July 2016 South of Spain (Andalusië)

>> One month: Looking after 2 dog, 4 cats, 18 chickens, house and big veggie garden, incl water system.

“Alex and Inge were great house sitters when they looked after my house and farm in Spain for a month. There was quite a lot to keep an eye on, dogs, cats and chickens to be fed and cared for as well as a vegetable garden.

Everything was great on our return, the house was clean and tidy as well as the outdoor areas.

We are very happy to recommend them for any future jobs.” Rachel


Reviews Workaway:


Oktober 2018 Portugal (Near Tomar)

“Well, what a treat this visit was! A beautiful family who came into our lives for just 5 days but in that time we had fun, cooked ate laughed and got loads of work done.

If you ever think that a couple cannot contribute as they have two kids with them think again! Inge is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to getting a job done and not just that she always used initiative and got on with the next jobs without needing prompting.

We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you all guys, you are always welcome and we wish you all the best of luck in your journey.” Janine and Terry
