Lagrasse, France (17 December 2019 – 5 March 2020: 1 dog, 4 cats)
“Excellent, super in keeping us updated about the pets, post and life at home. If you are looking for the best house and or pet sitters look no more !! I recommend Stacie A and husband Johnny 100%!” (Nomador)

Bangkok, Thailand (17 – 26 October 2019: 1 dog)
“Stacie and Johnny were excellent housesitters. They have a lot of experience and I left knowing my dog was with two knowledgeable and caring sitters. I was a bit nervous before they came as my dog had been sick the day before, but they kept a constant watch on him and updated me daily. I was able to enjoy my time away knowing he was being taken care of well. I returned home to a happy dog who had a great week with constant companions and lots of walks and playtime. My house was sparkling clean and had been cared for well. I would welcome them back any time!” (TrustedHousittters)

Chiang Mai, Thailand (4 – 15 October 2019: 3 cats)
“Stacie and Johnny are all round lovely humans. And if you are looking to have people look after your pets, then look no further. They kept me updated throughout about the cats, shared photos of them goofing about and took great care of them. I came back to find my house spotless and the cats had grown very attached to them. Even Kalonji, who’s usually a bit difficult, was fine and friendly with them: he only started throwing temper tantrums, after I came back 😦 Kalonji, who can be a big bully, even left Kaju alone while Stacie and Johnny were around, clearly attesting to how much attention was lavished on the cats. Stacie and Johnny took great care of Marmalady, my cat with renal problems, including taking her to the local vet’s for a morning of syringe feeding followed by an evening of persuading her to eat things on her own. They actually succeeded in getting Marm to eat some of the evenings, which is rare indeed and she was as bright eyed and bushy tailed as ever when I came back. I got to spend a couple of evenings with them and they are wonderful, considerate guests. They care deeply about animals and had so many stories to share from their many house sits across the world. Thank you so much Stacie and Johnny! Do drop by and say hi to us when you’re back in Chiang Mai!” (TrustedHousittters)

Kyoto, Japan (20 August – 25 September 2019: 2 dogs)
“If you have received a house sit request from Stacie and Johnny and are currently reading their profile; look no further! TrustedHousesitters is filled with amazing sitters but you would be very very lucky to have Stacie and Johnny looking after your home and pets. From the first Skype call we had, the contact was great and it turns out we weren’t wrong. Johnny and Stacie looked after our two very energetic dogs, Noki and Makala, for over 6 weeks. Even though we left instructions, they were very thorough in all the questions they asked us – which we thought showed a great sense of responsibility towards the dogs and their well-being. Not only are they very friendly and respectful, but the also took great care of the house in general. We can’t stress enough how happy we were to come back to a clean (even cleaner!) house after a holiday and a very very long flight journey. And this is from someone who is very picky and has very high standards regarding cleanliness 🙂
But the real reason why we think that you should invite Stacie and Johnny in a heartbeat, is that they saved one of our dogs’ life. Stacie and Johnny were carefully monitoring the two dogs and noticed that one of them was feeling a bit less ‘genki’ than usual as well as throwing up. Throwing up is common with labs, if they have a bit of an upset stomach.. and is something we generally don’t worry too much about. Stacie and Johnny decided to spend the night downstairs to be closer to the dogs and ended up taking him to the vet the next morning to get a peace of mind. This quick visit is what saved his life; Makala was diagnosed with leptospirosis and the vet mentioned that if the treatment had started any later that this, his organs would have failed and he would have died within the next three days. But this is a happy ending, and this is all thanks to the wonderful sitters that we had. So if like us you are after someone who will truly look after your pets, and give them all the attention they need as you would yourself, you know what to do! Stacie, Johnny, arigato gozimashita! We hope to have you back soon!!” (TrustedHousittters)

Jeju Island, South Korea (28 June – 11 August 2019: 2 dogs)
“Stacie and Johnny were an absolute dream team! From the moment we communicated with them via messages, they were always responsive and reliable. We were in contact several times prior to their arrival and once we met them, we connected instantly. More importantly, they cared for our two dogs with diligence and attentiveness. They communicated actively while we were away for 6 weeks, easing any and all of our worries with their consistent communication. Once we arrived home, it was apparent that our two dogs had created a bond with Stacie and Johnny and were sad to see them go. We highly recommend them and would happily welcome them back into our home!” (TrustedHousittters)

Seoul, South Korea (5 – 27 June 2019: 2 dogs)
“My boyfriend and I recently had three weeks in Australia, Stacie and Johnny stayed at our place and cared for our two dogs. One of our dogs is a rescue and has a few quirks and bad behaviours, but Stacie and Johnny we absolutely fantastic with him. They sent regular updates and photos and kept in touch with us. When we got home, the dogs were so happy and the house was absolutely spotlessly clean. We couldn’t have been happier to meet Stacie and Johnny, absolute professionals.” (Private)

Sarlat-la-Canéda, France (9 February – 9 April 2019: 2 cats, 1 dog)
“Stacie and Johnny were excellent housesitters. They arrived exactly as arranged and quickly made friends with our dog and cats. We had a very pleasant meal together when we got to know them better before we left the next day feeling confident leaving our animals in their capable hands. They kept in touch throughout our 8 weeks away and sent several happy photos of our pets. The animals were relaxed and happy and the house clean and tidy when we arrived back and they had even made lunch. I would thoroughly recommend Stacie and Johnny as 5-star housesitters.” (TrustedHousittters)

Bize-Minervois, France (26 January – 6 February 2019: 2 cats)
“Stacie et Johnny ont été très attentifs au bien-être de mes deux chats et ont parfaitement respecté mes consignes.
Ma chatte Chelsea demande des soins particuliers, et se montre quelques fois un peu difficile. J’ai constaté à mon retour qu’elle s’était bien adaptée à ses home sitters. Mon autre chat, Leïko, s’est également attaché à eux, et les a même cherchés après leur départ.
La maison était très bien rangée et propre, et j’ai eu régulièrement des nouvelles de mes chats, et pour mon plus grand plaisir, des photos. Partie un peu inquiète, j’ai été très vite rassurée.
Si cela se révèle possible, je referai volontiers appel à ce couple très sympathique.
Je les remercie sincèrement.” (Nomador)

Ventouse, France (7 December 2018 – 18 January 2019: 5 cats)
“Stacie and Johnny are a delightful, friendly couple and first class pet sitters. My cats were well cared for and thoroughly spoiled while I was away for almost 6 weeks. Stacie and Johnny signed up to look after 4 felines and were happily unfazed by the addition to the household of my neighbours’ very elderly boy who has recently moved in! They met his (considerable) demands with smiles and affection. Stacie and Johnny arrived a few days early to get to know routines and kept in regular touch with photographs and messages. I returned to them waiting at the airport for me, a clean and tidy house and a delicious home-cooked dinner. I highly recommend Stacie and Johnny and would be absolutely delighted to welcome them back as sitters again at any time.” (TrustedHousittters)

Luçon, France (9 November – 4 December 2018: 3 dogs)
“Johnny and Stacie were excellent sitters. Very quiet and tidy, they looked after our home and pets to a very high level. Valentino found a new friend in Johnny and he seemed to be his new playmate! Our dogs were walked regularly and seemed very happy and well cared for. Stacie and Johnny kindly cooked a wonderful chicken dish for our return and we managed to share some time together both before and afterwards. They are both very interesting to speak with and we wish them all the very best in their House sitting travels. Huge thanks from Valentino, Hortense and Caramel.” (TrustedHousittters)

Rheinsberg, Germany (22 September – 4 November 2018: 3 cats)
“Stacie and Johnny took care of our cats for six weeks while we were travelling. We hit it off with them straight away so were confident that we were leaving our house and pets in good hands. While we were away, they took fantastic care of our elderly tom and two kittens, including making several visits to the vet when they were injured. They gave us regular and reassuring updates. We came back to a warm welcome, a delicious dinner, a clean and tidy house and three happy felines. We hope Stacie and Johnny will be back sometime. We can certainly warmly recommend this friendly, responsible and kind couple for future housesits.” (TrustedHousittters)

Boutenac-Touvent, France (11 – 21 September 2018: 1 cat, 1 parrot)
“Stacie and Johnny looked after our cat and Parrot.
They are a happy couple who are very capable. Although not Parrot experts Johnny took to the training we gave and grew into the role. Chico is demanding and he flies free in the house and the Aviary, so safety is the main priority and they both made sure he was safe.
They carried out tasks without hesitation and we were very contented in the knowledge our animals and house would be safe whilst we were away for 2 weeks.” (Private)

Oxford, United Kingdom (13 – 15 July 2018: 1 dog)
“I really enjoyed meeting Stacie and her partner Johnny. Both really lovely, so lovely in fact that they came to dog/house sit twice for me. Both are very friendly, warm, conscientious and caring. They did an amazing job with my dog and my flat. Would highly recommend them.” (TrustedHousittters)

Brighton, United Kingdom (29 June – 2 July 2018: 1 dog)
“Stacie and Johnny were the perfect pet/housesitters! A delightful and friendly couple, they looked after Stanley as if he was their own dog and left the house in perfect condition (even checking things like closing a window we’d left open when they went out, for added security). Recommended!” (TrustedHousittters)

London, United Kingdom (15 – 17 June 2018: 1 cat)
“Stacie and Johnny are a lovely couple who came to look after Abigail for a weekend. They are very organised and made sure they knew what was expected before taking on the cat sit. Communication was easy and we Skype before the visit. We came home to a tidy house and happy cat. We would recommend them to anyone wanting a nice quiet and considerate couple to look after their home and pet.” (TrustedHousittters)
