We were able to meet Janet and Everett before our sit and they very kindly took us out for sightseeing & lunch, so we knew they were genuine and generous folk from the start. Bubba is an old much loved pooch, who thinks he’s still a pup and is very easy to care for. It’s a very spacious house, lovely guest bedroom with comfortable bed and en-suite. We had plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. We loved the garden and verandas too and spent a number of afternoons watching the hummingbirds come... Continue Reading

We were able to meet Janet and Everett before our sit and they very kindly took us out for sightseeing & lunch, so we knew they were genuine and generous folk from the start. Bubba is an old much loved pooch, who thinks he’s still a pup and is very easy to care for. It’s a very spacious house, lovely guest bedroom with comfortable bed and en-suite. We had plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. We loved the garden and verandas too and spent a number of afternoons watching the hummingbirds come to the feeder. We had a cleaner & a gardener to care for the property. There were plenty of heaters for the cool January evenings and we were invited to make use of the master bedroom as a TV Lounge, which we did. Bubba missed Janet & Everett when they went on holiday, but soon decided we were ok and slept under our bed each night. It’s a bus or taxi ride into town, but the upside is that it’s quiet at night and the neighbors are friendly too. We have no hesitation in recommending it as a sit.

David and Susan house and pet sat for me in January 2019 and I couldn’t have been more pleased. They obviously treated everything in my home with care while respecting my privacy. My main concern when I travel is my little chihuahua Coco. Upon returning home I could see that she loved them and they loved her. They played with her and gave her plenty of attention. They groomed her the day I got home. I highly recommend Susan and Dave as great sitters. In my opinion they are the best. Judy in... Continue Reading

This was our first experience with HouseSitMexico as homeowners, and I have to say it was amazing! Our house sitters couldn\'t have been more perfect! They fit in like a glove, our doggie loved them, maybe a little too much, Ha Ha! Seriously, they are kind and compassionate about their responsibilities. They truly love what they do. Our home was left just as we would have expected, our \"Bubba\" was very happy, never had issues while we were away. This is all a testament to Sandy and R... Continue Reading

We certainly have the upmost respect and trust with them, no one would go wrong with having them in their home to take care of it or their pets, very loving people! Thank you!! Janet and Everett D.

Nancy & John were great hosts to house sit for while they were away for the Holidays! They have a cozy, comfortable house in the La Floresta sub-division in Ajijic, MX which is a very central location to all the area has to offer. They have two adorable dachshund brothers and a sweet cat, who all became fast friends and all easy to watch over. We met the day prior to them leaving and we went over all details to take care of during the sit and they left a detailed notebook with all relate... Continue Reading

Nancy & John were great hosts to house sit for while they were away for the Holidays! They have a cozy, comfortable house in the La Floresta sub-division in Ajijic, MX which is a very central location to all the area has to offer. They have two adorable dachshund brothers and a sweet cat, who all became fast friends and all easy to watch over. We met the day prior to them leaving and we went over all details to take care of during the sit and they left a detailed notebook with all related info regarding the house and the animals. They were always available via phone, but everything went very smoothly during the sit and we mostly only communicated via text to keep them posted on how all the animals were doing and sending pics so they could keep connected to their furry friends at home. I had a very enjoyable visit at their property and fell in quick love with their animals. I would definitely House/Pet Sit for them again in the future and it was a pleasure to get to know Nancy & John thru the Sit. Thanks again for the opportunity, Nancy & John Best, Michael

Eric and Noemi (Mimi) were our most recent housesitters. They drove up to Ajijic from Manzanillo and spent a week in our home to care for our Cocker, Dino. As much as they enjoyed our home, they fell in love with Dino and he them. It was quite a love fest. We would happily have them housesit for us again, as they were personable, responsible and caring of our home and pet.

Originally, Patrick was to house-sit my four dogs and nine puppies. Then the gas shortage happened and my trip was cancelled. Prior to that, he made the considerable effort to make the trip from Guadalajara to my house in San Juan Cosala so that we could meet and make sure I felt comfortable with his doing the sitting. He was very patient with my postponing the job a day at a time while I waited for gas to arrive. It never did. Even though it didn't happen this time, I will definitely use hi... Continue Reading

Incredible house, incredible pets and incredible homeowner! We house and pet sat for Collette for a month in the spring of 2017 and we had a GREAT time. Her four dogs were easy to care for and provided us with hours of laughter and companionship. It was very difficult to say good-bye. Collette's beautiful home is located in a hillside gated community and her back yard overlooks Lake Chapala and the villages of San Antonio and Ajijic.

Incredible house, incredible pets and incredible homeowner! We house and pet sat for Collette for a month in the spring of 2017 and we had a GREAT time. Her four dogs were easy to care for and provided us with hours of laughter and companionship. It was very difficult to say good-bye. Collette's beautiful home is located in a hillside gated community and her back yard overlooks Lake Chapala and the villages of San Antonio and Ajijic. We spent a lot of time on the patio with the dogs and swam almost every day in the heated pool. We also took the opportunity to explore the Lake Chapala area beyond Ajijic. Collette was an excellent hostess and even arranged a garden party for our first night so we could meet some of her neighbors and friends. We felt very welcome in the community and attended weekly Sunday brunches during our stay. We would definitely go back again!

My wife and I are "cat people" so I was delighted to take on this solo, short-notice assignment for Hilary when she urgently needed to travel in the spring of 2018. I was instantly "adopted" by her three cats and within a couple of nights they were all sleeping on the bed with me! The cats, all rescues from different backgrounds, spent their mornings and evenings outside, but they didn't stray far from home they and came in at bedtime without any complaints. This was my first trip to San M... Continue Reading

I was instantly "adopted" by her three cats and within a couple of nights they were all sleeping on the bed with me! The cats, all rescues from different backgrounds, spent their mornings and evenings outside, but they didn't stray far from home they and came in at bedtime without any complaints. This was my first trip to San Miguel de Allende (SMA) and I had the opportunity to explore much of the city during the day when the cats were sleeping. The house is located in a gated community and local bus service to downtown was just a block from the house. Since taxi fare to anywhere in town was only 50 pesos, I did my major grocery shopping at one of the big-box stores on the edge of the city and then filled in from one of the local markets less than a half block from the house. Due to the urgency of her travel, Hilary didn't have a lot of time to "brief" me but her house was well-equipped and easy to manage, so I had no issues. Reliable Internet service and a large-screen TV connected to cable made my stay both productive and relaxing,

It was an absolute pleasure to stay in the house of Helena and Jim in Ajijic. But it was a greater pleasure to care for their wonderful Spaniel, Dino. At 13 years of age, his middle name should be 'love', because that's what his is--a living creature who gives out nothing but love. What a pleasure to be in his presence. The house was extremely comfortable, with great instructions on how to do what needed to be done, which really wasn't much. Aside from the 3 times a day short walks with Di... Continue Reading

It was an absolute pleasure to stay in the house of Helena and Jim in Ajijic. But it was a greater pleasure to care for their wonderful Spaniel, Dino. At 13 years of age, his middle name should be 'love', because that's what his is--a living creature who gives out nothing but love. What a pleasure to be in his presence. The house was extremely comfortable, with great instructions on how to do what needed to be done, which really wasn't much. Aside from the 3 times a day short walks with Dino, there was lots of time to enjoy their huge backyard, or to watch one of their 2 televisions. Everything you could ever need was there. And, it was a great location. In the Lomos of Ajijic, the house is high on the hills, with a great view of the lake. At the same time, it's 5 minutes to the center of Ajijic. It was a great stay, and I would do it again in a minute. "Thanks" Helena and Jim for trusting us with your house and with your wonderful dog. Eric and Mimi

I have sat twice for Collette during the winter of 2018 & 2017. She is beyond welcoming; had flowers in my room, cooked meals and introduced me to so many people in the community that I left both times feeling like I was leaving many friends. She allowed me to use her car which made getting around Ajijic and the Lake Chapala area so much easier. And her babies … she has 4 wonderful dogs that each have their own personalities.

I have sat twice for Collette during the winter of 2018 & 2017. She is beyond welcoming; had flowers in my room, cooked meals and introduced me to so many people in the community that I left both times feeling like I was leaving many friends. She allowed me to use her car which made getting around Ajijic and the Lake Chapala area so much easier. And her babies … she has 4 wonderful dogs that each have their own personalities. I travel by myself and 4 dogs weren't too much for me to handle because she has them trained so well. On walks, one goes off-leash, another on a single leash and the 2 smallest on a double leash; easy, peasy! Their routine is very easy and they'll reward you with lots of affection. Many evenings, I was in the TV room surrounded by them cuddling and sleeping while I watched movies. AND, she has an extensive movie collection if you enjoy movies. I've sat at many homes now in the area and you won't find a better view of Lake Chapala, especially for sunsets! And, you'll have a great pool to enjoy also. You really won't want for anything and I have no hesitation recommending you sit for Collette and her crew. I will always be open to sitting for her in the future, Just enjoy!

I think Barbara and Boyd are two of the most wonderful people I have had the pleasure to housesit for. They are very easy-going, warm and lovely people! They made sure I understood how to do everything and left me with some written instructions and helpful phone numbers in case I needed anything. Their house is the definition of tranquility and I felt very relaxed and happy there. Their neighbour Bernie and I had lovely morning walks with beauty (A real elegant beauty who I came to love).

Thank you for your kindness and trusting me with your beautiful home and gorgeous animals!

I engaged Jerry and Cheryl A. as my house and pet sitters from December 31 to January 9, 2019 and I can recommend them highly. I have four dogs of varying shapes and sizes and they bonded within minutes. I was able to fully enjoy my time away knowing that my dogs and house were in good hands. Jerry and Cheryl sent me photos of my dogs while I was away and told me about their long walks or peaceful times at the house. When I returned home the house was spotless and it was evident that ...

When I returned home the house was spotless and it was evident that my dogs were happy and had enjoyed their company. I couldn’t have asked for more. I would gladly have them as house/pet sitters again and I can highly recommend them. Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions.
