Housekeeper Recommendation Letter

A housekeeper recommendation letter can be written on behalf of an individual who works in a private home, a hotel or any place else that would require housekeeping services. In some cases the letter can be written by a homeowner and in other cases a hotel manager or housekeeping supervisor.


This sample housekeeper recommendation letter is written by homeowners for whom the applicant worked for a period of time. The homeowners are moving to another state and are helping the housekeeper find another job. The homeowners are willing to take the applicant along too, but she cannot leave her family.

Dear Anderson Family:

It is with mixed emotions that we leave this wonderful community, but we are excited to be moving closer to our son and his family. As you know, now that our son and daughter-in-law have had triplets they need our help. We will be leaving behind our beloved housekeeper Hannah Phillips who has taken such good care of our home for the last twelve years. We would love to take Hannah with us, but she has family in the area that she does not wish to leave. You have indicated that you are in need of a housekeeper, and we would like to recommend Hannah to you for housekeeping services.

She has the most cheerful disposition and is always pleasant to guests in our home. Although Hannah has her own house and does not live with us, she has been willing to spend the night on several occasions when we have had a party. Hannah arrives at 7:00a.m. to make breakfast and stays until 1:00 p.m. She returns at 4:30 p.m. to make dinner and leaves at 7:30 p.m. This is her schedule Monday through Friday. She is off Saturday and Sunday. If we need her to work on Saturday, we give her a choice of overtime pay or a different day off during the week. Although Hannah has been happy with this work schedule, she is willing to change to suit a new employer.

You would be hard pressed to find anyone more trustworthy than Hannah. She possesses impeccable character and integrity. A perfectionist, she keeps our house spotless in spite of our two dogs that live inside with us. She is extremely well organized and has a strict cleaning and laundry schedule that works very well in our household. Her meals are absolutely scrumptious. Hannah can cook anything from familiar comfort food, to fabulous picnic lunches to mouthwatering gourmet seven-course dinners.

It is with the utmost pleasure that we recommend Hannah Phillips for a position as a housekeeper in your home. She is not just a housekeeper to us. We consider her a much-loved member of our family. We are going to miss her terribly, but we understand that she cannot relocate with us. Please consider her for employment in your home and feel free to contact us for more information at (555)-555-5555 or by email at [email]

Warm Regards,

Mark and Angie Harrison
