Rachael was highly recommended to us by our holiday letting agent when we recently decided to turn our four-bedroom country house into a holiday getaway. The house was basically furnished for our occasional trips to England whilst we lived in the Netherlands, but was in need of a makeover to improve it both in style and practicality. We also wanted a caretaker for our much loved home while we are away and to operate the holiday letting business for us with quality.
The service Rachael has provided has been fantastic. We now live in Singapore and I have been able to leave Rachael to deal with every aspect of the project from beginning to end. She has dealt efficiently with services, packing up our belongings and carefully putting them away, cleaning, fixing and sourcing. She has had new curtains hung, furniture re-upholstered and rooms repainted among many other things. She has reported back to me almost daily with clear updates on every stage of progress so that I felt I was actually there. She has kept excellent notes of each detail which is useful for our records.
Rachael’s services are unique in that she really cares for your property as though it is her own, with enormous attention to detail whilst being very cautious not to overspend or make unnecessary changes. She has been clear prior to spending how much it will cost, she has discussed alternatives and has overseen work done by contractors to a high standard.
Lifestyle Sussex will continue to provide their services in the form of housekeeping and care taking of the property whilst we live abroad, and I am extremely grateful to her in every aspect. The house now features beautifully on the holiday letting website and our first ever guests loved it so much they have booked to come back next year. I simply couldn’t recommend Rachael and Lifestyle Sussex any more highly.
