This was not your typical stay since it was on a boat, but that didn't keep Ava and Ed from taking the challenge. They were very adaptable and even more loving with Izzy than one could imagine! We had peace of mind the entire time we were gone for 21 days! They have been gone for hours now and Izzy is still looking for them! That speaks volumes for the love Izzy has for them. Friends for life!

From Izzy:
Step mama and daddy, thank you for all your patience and love. I wasn't sure what was happening and you were there to help me with your kisses and hugs. I hope you'll come back to see me again!

I couldn't have asked for a better situation for my cat. Ava & Ed were wonderful; besides being very nice, friendly, easy going people, they took care of my cat like he was their own....sent pictures so I could see for myself how happy & content he was & I really enjoyed talking to them about their experiences as house sitters.
Best of all, they left my house cleaner than it was before! I am so relieved to know that I can now travel without all the anxiety of leaving my cat . He gets to stay in his own house with loving people to watch over him & play with him.

Ava & Ed get 5 stars only because I can't give more. They were fantastic and took care of our pup and home like it was their own. They were very responsive leading up to their stay and delighted us with daily photo & video updates during their stay. They left our house BETTER than they found it, including Ava making us a meatloaf so we could have lunch & dinner on the day we returned. Our pup accepted them as their own and even cuddled with them in the morning as is our tradition with him. Ed took Capone on many walks, played with him and cuddled on the couch with him too. Their knowledge about pets and experience taking care of pets made me feel extremely comfortable leaving our pup with them.

Ava, her husband Ed and their 26 year old son Andrew house and pet sat for us at our home in San Diego from Feb 19-March 7th. They were the first out of town pet sitters we had ever used and so we were very careful in reviewing many applicants from before selecting them. We could not have been happier with this entire experience

Henry, FL Dec 2016
Ava and Ed were absolutely fantastic to our 4 furry babies including 2 elderly dogs who had very specific needs (Fax, 17 yo, deaf, blind requiring constant attention and Ginger, 13 yo, with a chronic eye condition requiring daily treatment). They gave our dogs all the attention and love they needed and it was very clear when we came back that the dogs had been very happy during the 10 days we were away.

Jackie, Thailand, March 2016
We highly recommend Ava and her son Andrew as house sitters. They cared for our pets for 2 weeks and were very professional in their approach, very loving and attentive to our pets and enabled us to travel with the peace of mind that both our home and our furry babies were in very capable hands during our absence. They were very attentive to our instructions and provided timely, entertaining updates on the status of the pets and the house while we were away.

Ed and Ava were wonderful house and pet sitters in every way. They cared for our dog, Moby, as if he was their own. They kept in touch with us regularly to let us know how he was doing and sent lots of photos. They looked after our house and garden, leaving everything in excellent shape. They are really kind and considerate people who we could not recommend more highly!

Thank you Kate, Paul and Moby. We had a wonderful time and look forward to the next opportunity to stay in your new home and sit with our good buddy Moby.
