About Barbara Steele:

My husband and I have been all over the world in the recent past, we love to travel. About five years ago we retired after owning a mortgage company for close to 20 years.  My husband is an avid golfer, we would enjoy sits with golf availability. While he plays golf  I enjoy some four legged company. We are animal lovers! Also we enjoy discovering new places at a slower pace and enjoy the company, love, and playtime of your animals while doing so.

Couldn't ask for more in a house sitter. Barbara and Fred arrived when promised, were friendly, took in the necessary information quickly, kept in touch during my trip, left the house immaculate (with laundry done), and enjoyed their stay here (which made me feel good). Upon my return, my cat greeted me nonchalantly, so she must have appreciated their company and care.

I am delighted to write a glowing reference for Barbara steele and her husband Fred. they took wonderful care of the dogs walking them for an hour or so at least once a day and obviously, lathering them with attention and affection. Barbara wrote us frequently with updates and reporting on any minor problem that they already had taken care of. The house was immaculate when we arrived home and they were wonderful in getting us to and from the airport.

I recommend them without hesitation. they among the very best "carers" we have had in over 7 years with the program. they will not disappoint you.

Barbara was on time, listened patiently to my million instructions, and took great care of 3 dogs, a cat and 20 chickens. She kept me updated on everyone by text. House was immaculate when I got back and pets were all happy. Couldn't ask for a better house sitter and I hope we can have her come again.

Barbara Steele was womderful. She treated our dog and house as if they were her own. She dida marvelous job with Carmel, to the point that I suspect Carmel would have been happy to go home with her. I cant say enough good things. Both Barbara and Fred would so easy to get on with and they were very prepared for the visit. I would not hesitate to have them back and I hope that that happens.

To who it may concern,
We are writing to tell you about the Steeles who recently housesat for us in San Antonio. Even before we met them, we felt that they were very responsible people. They communicated with us through phone and email to make sure that we were comfortable having them house sit for us. They arrived before we left, so we did get to know them a bit. Actually, they are fun to be with! We always leave our sitters extensive written directions; however, Barbara and Fred did not really need very much instruction. They understood what we wanted done with our pool, plants, and, of course, our 3 dogs. They communicated with us several times sending text messages and cute photos of our dogs. When we returned, the house was very clean, the dogs well-cared for, and the pool as clear and sparkling as when we left. Barbara also left us a note about an easy way to clean the stove, which we tried and it worked! If we were going on another trip, we would not hesitate to have them housesit for us again. They are reliable, trustworthy, and caring. We have had several housesitters in the past, and the Steeles are among the best.

Sincerely,
Jay and Pat

"Barbara is an ideal house and pet-sitter. She recently took care of our two dogs in addition to our pet rabbit and turtle. Barbara was great about sending updates and pictures and letting us know how all of our pets were doing. Our active lab got more exercise with Barbara than he usually gets from us! Our elderly pup got plenty of TLC as well. We returned home to happy pets, a tidy house, and even a clean and organized kitchen!! We would not hesitate to use Barbara again and recommend her wholeheartedly."

Barb and Fred Steele house sat/dog sat for my husband and me when we went to Mexico for vacation. I cannot say enough about what an absolutely amazing job they did! I was initially very nervous about trusting strangers to watch our house and Sadie, our dog. However, Barb always responded quickly to any e-mails I sent and set up a time to talk over the phone before they came to the house, which made me more comfortable with them taking care of everything.
While we were in Mexico Barb made sure to e-mail several updates about how Sadie was doing, along with fun pictures! I was especially worried about leaving Sadie because she suffers from separation anxiety and this was our first time away from her for an extended period of time. However, knowing that Barb and Fred were taking such good care of her allowed me to have a worry-free, stress-free vacation! Not only did they take care of her at the house, but they took her to the beach, went on walks with her, and bought her a new toy and snacks!
When we got back from Mexico the house was immaculate. The used bed linens were being washed and the towels had been cleaned. There was a new bag of ice in the freezer and a watermelon in the fridge! Itís the small, thoughtful things that really make me appreciate the Steeles.
I would recommend Barb and Fred Steele without hesitation to anyone. Thank you so much for the wonderful job that you guys did!
