About Renata Perini-melton:

Hello, Ciao 


I am a native Italian, married to David, a true English gentleman. 

We currently live in York, UK though we are looking to house sit in Italy as that is also where most of my family live, in the Friuli region. 

I left Italy when I was 5 years old, but thanks to my mother, I speak fluent Italian. (Although not always grammatically correct) 

I speak other European languages such as basic: German, French, Spanish. David is fluent in English and basic Italian.   

I'm an online Life coach. Helping ladies in their fitness, wellbeing and nutrition through live online courses, memberships and subscriptions.  

David and I have looked after our friend's properties in York and Italy plus the surrounding area for the past few years. 

Just to mention 3: 
  • One property had two cats, along with their large garden which we looked after for 6 weeks. 
  • One property had an outdoor pool which we kept clean from bugs. This was located in Tuscany, Italy.
  • On one property, the owner was a lover of plants, so this took lots of tender care for the plants and keeping them hydrated from the summer sun for 1 month.
We always take great care of all the properties that we stay in including pets such as dogs, cats, guinea pigs, hamsters, budgies, chickens, goats and make sure that we follow the instructions carefully which are left by the owner.

We are looking at returning to house-sitting as David and I would like to spend more time in Italy, and then later the rest of the world! 

David has retired though on occasions, teaches English online and I work part-time also online. So we have the time to look after your precious asset. We both drive and would be arriving in our own car. 

We are a fun-loving mature couple, who love to chat, mingle, cook though we are very responsible. 

We are currently available for most of the year. As I work online I can be in any location as long as I have access to the internet.  

We look forward to hearing from you and looking after your property. 
  • An interesting fact about Renata: She travelled solo halfway around the world for two and a half years. 
  • An interesting fact about David: He loves music trivia. 
Happy to supply you with additional references.

Homeowner in York, United Kingdom

Renata and David were ideal house sitters. They arrived on time to enable us to have a quick hello and introduction to the house. So we felt very reassured leaving our home in their care. They kept our precious plants nicely watered, and left the house nice and tidy, probably better than when we left! A big thank you from us for taking such good care of things while we were away. It really does make going away less stressful knowing all will be well on our return. We would be very happy if they would like to come back again one day.

We have known Renata and David for about 10 years now, so we’ve lost track of how many times they have taken care of our home, whether it be for a long weekend or full holidays. We trust them completely. They offer a unique blend of friendliness without losing the professionalism that is required to do this work to our complete satisfaction.

Homeowner in Skelton, York, United Kingdom

Renata and David are the perfect house sitters. They are reliable, trustworthy and professional with their responsibility.

I have no doubt regarding the service they provide. We have left them with the care of our home numerous times up to 6 weeks, including the care of our 2 cats and houseplants.

Once we hand over the keys we know our home is in safe hands.

We would not hesitate to recommend this delightful and trustworthy couple.

Katie and Andrew Gibson.
