House / Pet sitting References
Frank & Susana Wheeler ~ Costa Rica
Yvonne and Michael Bauche house sat for us for a fortnight in Costa Rica. Their references and track record were impressive and within a few hours of their arrival we were convinced that we could safely leave our property and cat in their hands. They proved in every way to be competent, professional, quick to learn, trustworthy, dependable and caring, Yvonne’s flair for administration and animal care complementing Michael’s technical and financial abilities. They provided us with regular updates, kept a log of callers and problems and, for example, when our car battery died, arranged a replacement. Both Yvonne and Michael are pleasant and personable people determined to make a success of their house sitting. We shall invite them again and strongly recommend them to other members.
Jonathan & Karin Cox ~ Spain
Yvonne and Michael took wonderful care of our home and garden while we were on holiday. They are our very first port of call when we need reliable and trustworthy carers for our home. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone who wanted house sitters.

Gerard Gielen ~ Vancouver
We have known Yvonne and Mike for many years back in Vancouver. They are very friendly, outgoing, reliable and trustworthy and they love animals, traveling, experiencing the world and meeting new people. They have taken care of our home and dog when we have been away on vacation. My wife and I would not hesitate having them take care of our home in future.
Debra Roed ~ Vancouver
I have known Yvonne and Michael Bauche for 5 years and we recently engaged them to house sit and look after our cat Tigger while we were on vacation. We were very please with them and the care and attention they gave both our cat and our home. We would not hesitate to both use them again ourselves and recommend them to anyone else looking for a house and pet sitter.

Ramona von marcard ~ Italy
Yvonne and Michael have been the most marvellous house-sitters ever!
I often have house-sitters, but these two are the Best. They are lovely with the animals and very observant with anything a house might need, and moreover Yvonne leaves your garden much better, then when you left.
I wish, they would come again to Europe and stay with me, even, when I dont go away!
M.J. Thies ~ Vancouver
I have known Mike and Yvonne for many years. They are two of kindest people I know, but more importantly they are people who really make a difference in the world. I would trust them with my life, my home, my pet and anything else. They are responsible and mature, and yet manage to really see the adventure in life and go for it. I am proud to call them my friends and am happy to provide a reference for them as they continue their amazing journey. Any home owner would be lucky to find Mike and Yvonne to care for their home.
Connie Thoreson ~ Vancouver
Yvonne (and Mike) are trustworthy and reliable. I have known them both for about 8 years and have only good things to say about them.
Sonja Bliss ~ Nicaragua
Yvonne and Michael stayed in my guest home in lovely Granada Nicaragua. They were both warm and polite. Interacted well with my other guests. They were considerate of my things. They felt at ease in my home and made it their home for the duration, which is our goal. They shared interesting stories, worked on their blog and busied themselves during quite times. I have 5 pets and they all adored the loving attention they received from Yvonne and Michael. Even the most shy cat, had no problems letting Yvonne pet her or I should say “worship her”!
Janet & Cliff Town ~ United Kingdom
We have know yvonne since 1978 and Mike since late 1980s. They are a lovely couple, clean,non-smokers, honest, industrious and totally trust worthy. We would have no hesitation in recommending them for any position.
Carolyn Speers ~ Honduras
I know Mike & Yvonne Bauche to be organized, trustworthy & reliable. In addition, they are kind, generous & friendly. They were wonderful with my cat, Pumpkin, who adopted them at first sight. He often visited with them & received tuna treats & unlimited play time. I highly recommend them to humans & animals alike!
