Our Services

Houses are much safer and more secure if someone visits and keeps a regular eye on things while you are away. It is also healthier for animals not to suffer the stress of being moved to unfamiliar surroundings and the potential exposure to health issues.

Seaview HomeMinders has developed a suite of services to meet the needs of home and pet owners who are going to be away from home, whether for a few days or for an extended period of time.
