The sussex housekeeper was started in 2010 by Anne Macdonald who has lived in Chichester for twelve years with her husband and four (now grown-up) children. Anne has worked for the last ten years as both the lead paediatric nurse and staff nurse in a Chichester hospital. Prior to this, she and her family lived in Cape Town, where she ran a successful bed and breakfast.

Anne has long recognised the need for a tailor-made service offering local holiday and second-home owners the opportunity of making the most of their valuable time during their holiday break. As this is a personalised service, the first step is to meet you in your holiday home and find out exactly how you and the sussex housekeeper can work together.

Louise, Anne's daughter, took over the running of the business in January 2011. Louise is an exceptionally capable young woman who has worked for a busy private household in London as their house manager for the past two years. Louise will continue to work to the same high standard and as a qualified Cordon Bleu cook, also hopes to expand the catering side of the business.
