An Extra Point Of View

We all want to know what people have thought of a service so here are some peoples points of view...or read over 80 reviews, all 5* on Facebook

"Rowena has transformed my life, my entire house was getting me down but in particular my children bedroom and my mum's room(she passed away last year). the first visit we tackled the kids room, Rowena made it feel effortless and was systematical in her approach. the 2nd visit my mum's room, she was sensitive as she knew it would be difficult for me. I now have 2 rooms that are functional and have a home for everything. I felt inspired to keep going through the house and have decluttered my kitchen.
I would highly recommend Rowena, she is better then therapy. I will definitely be booking her again. she also travelled a 3 hour round trip to Brighton to help me. Thank you Rowena xx"

"Fabulous service. I just had a small decluttering job which we couldn’t find the time (or brave enough) to tackle but Row was fabulous, offering tips on pitfalls to avoid in future and best use of space. Would recommend and definitely use again."

Decluttering

"I would absolutely recommend Rowena for anyone needing to get their home decluttered and sorted out. While I felt overwhelmed by the task, she gets stuck right in, totally unphased by the sheer volume of stuff to clear and it's amazing just how much is accomplished in a few hours. I never would have got round to sorting everything thing out but Rowena is a great motivator (like a personal trainer for decluttering) and since she came I've found it so much easier to keep on top of tidying up. Thank you so much"

- Charlotte, Hither Green

"I was getting fed up with the clutter at home, and saw that a friend had recommended Rowena on fb. Decided to take the plunge and contact her - initially was a bit apprehensive about being made to get rid of things I loved, but boy am I glad she came to help! Our living room doesn’t resemble a disaster zone any more, and my little girl likes to spend time in her room now. Thank you Rowena!

Basic Gardening


 

"Rowena did an absolutely amazing job on my over grown weed ridden garden. She worked so hard and I'm so so happy with the results. Highly recommend her services and such a lovely person too."

- Sandra, Bromley

"I used Rowena's garden maintenance service. I left Rowena unattended at my home, and upon my return my garden was so much more than I had expected. Rowena certainly takes pride In her work and goes the extra mile for customer satisfaction. I will definitely be using her services again & can highly recommend."

- Ella, West Wickham

"Asked Rowena to tidy up my garden, was most impressed. Fitted me in at short notice, reasonably priced and did a great job. Would definitely use again and happy to recommend her to others. Friendly, reliable and trustworthy."

Emma, Beckenham

"Wow! Rowena arrived yesterday to meet and discuss our needs, and today cleared our 'wild garden' in 3 hours, piling up the cuttings exactly as I'd asked her to in our absence. I'm planning on booking her to file my photos next, and am going to be first in line for her cleaning division starting in a month's time. Rowena is quick to pick up on your concerns and to do what is asked, eg I asked her not to disturb the logs, but to cut everything else down to the ground and to stack cuttings at the back of the garden. I am very picky, but Rowena's job to today was done exactly how I wanted it. Thank you! "

Party Hostess

"Absolutely fantastic! Rowena managed the bar at our wedding which was held in an isolated field. She organised 2 additional bar staff and I was so impressed with the service they all offered. Rowena was knowledgeable and helpful from the get go. She gave me great advise and I immediately knew that I could relax, she had everything in hand. They did everything I had asked and more, many of our guests even commenting on how great they were. I would not hesitate to recommend Rowena for any similar events and would be sure to go straight to her if we needed anyone again. Thanks Rowena! xx"

- Megan, West Wickham

"Just had Rowena over today as "An Extra Pair of Hands" for my son's First Holy Communion party- so glad I booked her. It was so nice to be able to sit back, relax and enjoy the celebrations without having to rush around. Definitely recommend. Thank you. PS we have previously used the decluttering service and that was great too!"

Claire, Grove Park

"Rowena came along to help at our BBQ and birthday party! She was great! She kept on top of serving drinks, tidying up and getting people to the right places! I’d thoroughly recommend her and will definitely use her again!

Thank you Rowena x"

- Hafeeza, Orpington

"Rowena Is a total star. I wish six stars were an option. I booked Rowena and her colleague to help out at a bat mitzvah party of 70 13 year old kids Which I was hosting in a church hall. Unfortunately the week before the party my son fell ill and we were in hospital. I called Rowena and asked her if she could do all the prep as well and she totally took everything out of my hands.

She did a fantastic job, worked very hard and the party was fantastic. She and her colleague were lovely, smart, prepared, hard working and lots of fun. I was both mentally and physically exhausted by then and would have been unable to have this party without them. Everyone in my family, especially my daughter, were so grateful.. I would recommend them highly and can’t wait to use them again. Huge thanks."

House Move Assistant

"Rowena recently helped us on our moving day and I can't recommend her enough. On the day she was efficient and effective and quickly got on with what was asked if her. She helped do a good clean of our old property before moving on to our new house and giving that a thorough clean. She was also extremely helpful with unpacking and organising boxes on the day which was great as its easy to become quickly overwhelmed when faced with all that unpacking! If you're looking to move then I would certainly recommend Rowena for that extra pair of hands on the day. She helped take some of the stress out of it and it was great not to have to move in and start cleaning myself! Thanks again."

Keeley, From Bromley to West Malling

"We recently moved house.  We are now properly settled in and consider it a home.  Moving house is one of the most stressful things in life.
Luckily, we asked Rowena to help us with our move.
Rowena is hardworking, organised, good at communicating, hands on and confident.
Rowena was on the front foot the whole day and we couldn’t be more pleased. She treated our house move like it was her own. She’s the kind of person who, we know, could turn her hand to any service.
We very highly recommend Rowena to any one who needs a reliable, organised, confident extra pair of hands.

Thank you Rowena!"

Sandie, Bromley to Chislehurst

I trust Rowena with the three most valuable little people in my life. In the past it has not been easy making time to go out with my husband. We have three girls, 4 years old and under and we just didn't have a reliable person to call on.

We sought Rowena's help and she has minded our girls a number of times since.

Rowena has been a true godsend and has always been available when we need her so that we can enjoy nights out together again.

My girls adore her and warmed to her the very first time she came to our home. When I tell the girls we are going out and that Rowena will mind them, they are delighted. My daughter Áine thinks Rowena makes the best mega block towers and Sinalei said she wasn't afraid all night with Rowena here.

There has never been any tears when we walk out the door and I swear she must work some sort of magic at bedtime because they always sleep so well and stay in their own beds all night. For parents who have been out for a few drinks this is a total bonus! I would recommend her to anyone needing an extra pair of hands. She's brilliant!!!

Baby Sitting and Elderly Care

Rowena did a fantastic job helping to look after my 91-year-old father-in-law while I was travelling. She was thoroughly reliable, trustworthy, friendly and pro-active and did everything in good spirits. We would not hesitate to use her services again and would highly recommend her.
