Monika was an excellent house sitter. Looked after the dog and cat so well. My dog looked really trim when I returned having been spoilt by been taken to the beach every few days – she loved that!The house and garden were all in great shape and I appreciated how water conscious she was. She also very kindly welcomed me home with supper. I would definitely recommend Monika.

Monika was a very nice, clean, organised, helpful and perfect house-and cat sitter. We met each other one day before I left and we have had a lot of fun. When I came back my house was super clean and cleaned up and the cats were in a very good mood. It looks like I was never away from house. Thanks a lot for all you’ve done. I hope we will meet each other again and you could do many house sittings for me.

The perfect one – Monika can do it all! She took perfectly care of our house and our beloved animals. She stayed in touch and followed our instructions. On top of that Monica comes with character. She invites you into her life and is very open. It was a real pleasure and we really enjoyed her company. Monika definetely is another proof that mindmyhouse sitters are simple wonderful people. We hope that we will see her again.

I came to know Monika whilst she was house sitting for a friend in Australia. Monika takes the business of house sitting very seriously. I was impressed by the level of responsibility she took in looking after my friend’s home. As I came to know Monika I also realised that she has a deep compassion for animals. I am very particular about who takes care of my elderly dog but I had no reservations whatsoever about leaving Flash in Monika’s care. She is a true animal lover. She also left my house in immaculate condition (I believe it was cleaner than when she arrived!) Monika is not just someone who comes and stays in your house when you are away. She is someone who will look after your home and look after your pets with as much love and attention as you would give them yourself. Highly recommended.

Monika looked after our house in Mana, New Zealand, for 8 months while we were overseas.  She did a wonderful job of communicating with us regarding mail, repairs and so forth.  We returned to find the house completely spotless and everything in perfect order.  I would not hesitate to recommend Monika as a truly professional house-sitter.

Monika was wonderful. Not only looked after our house and dogs but dealt with an awkward situation caused by freak weather conditions and we now feel we have made a special new friend for life. I hope we see her again.

We could see that Gewsha took to Monica very well. When we returned from our holiday, Gewsha as well as our home was in perfect condition just as we had left it. Monika is clearly an experienced sitter and we would gladly recommend her.

Kathie & Michael Blackhurst
East Tamaki, New Zealand – December 2017 until January 2018

Monika was just absolutely wonderful! She was very prompt with communication when we were setting up the house sit. She asked all the right questions and made sure she had the information she needed to do a great job. During the house sit she responded quickly to messages and sent us photos of our dog. When we got home the house was immaculate and welcoming. Our dog was happy and had lost some weight from the excellent walking routine she got him into. We would very happily ask Monika to house sit again at and would have no hesitation recommending her to other people who need a responsible, friendly and reliable house sitter.

Haarlem, The Netherlands – October and November 2017
Monika was our house-sitter twice in 2017. She took very good care of our pets (1 cat, 1 dog and 4 chicken). She had fun walking our dog and followed up all the instructions for the chickens very nicely. Monika kept the house clean and well organized. It felt good to come back to a nice and tidy home after a holiday. Monika is a nice woman who takes care of the house with great respect. We surely ask her again for the next time we go on a vacation.

Monika is a very reliable house sitter. Not alone that she is very trustful. She also took care, when we came back from vacation, that our house is clean and in best order, almost like the showroom of a furniture seller. I would book her anytime again.
