Ben and Katrin are very caring sitters. My cats warmed up to them quickly. Katrin and Ben took care of the house and dealt with several issues, like a water leak and faulty pool pump. They are talented, intelligent, respectful, amiable and healthy. Make a lovely couple. They speak several languages.
We found the kitties as loving as when we left them. The house was clean and less cluttered.
We hope they will sit again for us in the near future. Highly recommend them as house, pet sitters.

There are so many great things that we could say about Ben and Katrin, but my fingers would get really tired typing that much. So, I will hit the high points. They were so thoughtful in the way the communicated with us about everything... the kittos, house, etc. We received pictures and videos regularly. The care and attention they showed our fur kids was stellar. They even managed by some act of a miracle got our special needs kitty, Sami to allow cuddles and affection, which is something we have been "working on" for over 2 yrs. There were a few small things around the house that needed attention like a leaking washing machine hose and Ben was quick to jump in and take charge. They communicated with us to organize a temporary repair until I arrived. Katrin was so loving and kind about allowing Ponchy and Clyde to be a part of her meditation and yoga routine, not that they gave her a choice.
We hope to someday have the privilege to have them come back and sit for us again. XOXO
Well what can I say about Ben & Katrin, they were my heroes, a last minute trip enabled with the graceful and timely offer from Ben & Katrin.
They made sure I had pleat of time to introduce my boys, with time to relax. My two boys instantly warmed to both Katrin & Ben and I felt assured. Ben and Karin have a wonderful demeanor and very respectful of my home. I got daily updates on my boys which is always lovely and reassuring.
For those seeking a couple with pet focus and chilled out vibes, and a no complaints, for any grafting kind of attitude, then Ben & Karin are the house sitters you’ve been looking for!
I cannot thank both of you enough. Big hugs from me and lots of licks from the boys!

Ben and Katrin were wonderful. Our animals were well cared for. They arrived when they said they would. They were always responsive to our inquiries while we were gone. We were very relaxed after meeting them and our trip was comfortable. We definitely recommend them and would have them back anytime.
Ben and Katrin are the best sitters you can get. The house was more clean and orderly as we left it. The cats were relaxed and in a good condition.
They have also taken good care about the plants in the garden.
And this couple is very friendly, open hearted and uncomplicated. Everyone will be glad to have Ben and Katrin as their housesitters. Everything was perfect and we hope to see them again next year.
I could not recommend Ben and Katrin more! Both were such delightful people that I invited them to stay a week longer. My 2 dogs were in love with them, they continued to spend play time with them and walk them while I was re-entering my life after a 2 weeks vacation. The house was impeccable and the gardens very happy as well. I highly recommend Katrin and Ben and I hope to have them sit again soon!
Ben and Katrin are the most kind-hearted couple you could hope to meet and look after your animals. They looked after our 13-year-old Golden Retriever while we were away on vacation for two weeks and we were greeted by a very happy dog on our return. They are 100% reliable and will leave your place in tip top shape. We also appreciated the frequent updates and photos of Roxy.
Thank you, Ben and Katrin, you’re the best! We hope you will come back again next year!
Fantastic experience - Ben and Katrin were perfect house sitters! Our dogs, Tiago and Canela adored them and I think Ben and Katrin fell in love with them too! They got lots of lovely walks and explored green areas they had never been to before. They were fit and healthy and happy when we came back - we couldn't wish for more! Your dogs are in for a treat if they get looked after by Ben and Katrin! Can't recommend them highly enough!
We cannot say enough good things about Katrin and Ben and the care they took of Lucky and our homes in Denmark during our two week adventure in Croatia. We returned to a happy, healthy dog …a (needed) kilo or two lighter for all the good exercise he received. We also travelled for the first time since having Lucky without a guilty conscience regarding his welfare. That was an incredible gift to our family that seems difficult to repay. Indeed the quality of care and genuine love they provided cannot be bought at any price.
Our home was also returned in an immaculate condition frankly better than we had delivered it. They are a lovely, communicative and throughly responsible team and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone for any task.
Katrin and Ben stayed in our apartment for an abundant week while we were with our family in Germany. We could not have imagined better house sitters. It was so nice to see how Max, our beloved dog, took them to his heart from the first minute.
We got along wonderfully with Katrin and Ben from the beginning, they are really absolutely trustworthy, friendly and lovable.
While we were away, we communicated via WhatsApp and received messages and photos from Max.
When we came home we found a spotless apartment and a happy and relaxed Max.
Katrin and Ben were the perfect house sitters and we can highly recommend them. A big thank you to you both, feel hugged from us and we hope to see you again in the future.
We cannot recommend Ben and Katrin highly enough. The dogs loved them right at the outset, thanks to their quiet and calm approach. My husband and I both felt very at ease leaving the dogs for a whole month - the longest we've ever left them. We were sent regular photos and updates of their escapades! Neither of the dogs had ever been for such long, and interesting, walks.
And Ben and Katrin were able to cure Blossom of car sickness, which is a godsend for us, as we have been trying over the years, to no avail. They enjoyed longs walks in the countryside, as well as on the beach. We came home to two very happy dogs and a spotlessly clean house. We look forward to them being able to sit for us again in the future.

Katrin and Ben are two lovely people. They took care of our 2 chickens and our senior cat Oskar, who can be a bit picky as it comes to trusting new friends :)
The first pictures we've received showed us a very happy cat, sitting on Katrin's lap enjoying lots of pats and caresses.
Already at that point, we were very sure that he was not short of anything.
When we came back home, we found our house super neat and clean... couldn't be better!
We definitely recommend Katrin and Ben as house and petsitters and hope they can look after our house and residents again in the future.
All the best Katrin and Ben, greets from our two chickens and a big hug and kisses from Oskar xxx
Bighearted thanks to Kathi and Ben. With their caring and loving presence they took wonderful care of my cats.
I didn`t worry for a moment. The photos showed me, how comfortable my cats felt. Also the flowers and vegetables in my gardenwere well take care of!
Coming home to a clean house was very pleasant.
Thank you so much!
C U next time!

Ben and Katrin are such a lovely calm couple. Right from the start it was obvious that the dogs took to them? With Valentino attaching himself to Ben! The couple are very reliable, excellent communicators and great pet and house sitters.
We returned to a very tidy house and happy dogs.
Huge thanks both. We certainly hope to see you both again.
I highly recommend Ben and Katrin. They looked after two energetic, excitable German Shepherds while I was away. It was an arrangement of trust that was amply rewarded because I never actually met them. They arrived and left, contacting a friend for the keys but they couldn't have been better.
During their stay they interacted with me and sent me photos. The dogs had an amazing time and adventures. Zorba especially misses them. The house was left tidy and clean. I really can't praise them highly enough. We also had Zoom call and careful interaction prior to the sit so I felt very comfortable.
German Shepherds can be quite a handful but I would say that Ben and Katrin are the ideal sitters for them.

Katrin and Ben were wonderful. They took care of all our pets (dogs, cats, pig, bunnies, ducks, chickens) and of our house for two weeks. They were absolutely reliable. They sent us photos on a regular basis so that we could fully enjoy our trip abroad. When we returned, the house was tidier than when we had left and all our pets were healthy and happy. I think our dog still misses Ben!
