More Information

Currently doing an extended contract for a Govt. dept. which required a police check prior to commencement. My job is flexible and I can take leave with a few weeks notice. I can do short term sits up to 10 days if out of my local area (Wollogong, NSW) and will do longer term in and around Wollongong while I continue working. Country and regional locations are my preference - I'm not really a 'city' person.

I am experienced at house-sitting and managing AirBNBs for people who want to keep it active while they are away. Completed house sitting/managing AirBNB experiences are as follows: 25 June to 19 August 2017, 22 January to 21 February 2018, 4-11 and 19-25 August, 13 to 30 October 2018, and am booked again for May 2019. The airbnb housesit was from another site. Review as follows:

Rating: 5.0 THEIR REVIEW OF YOU: Claire is an exceptional house sitter. Not only is our house well maintained Claire also hosts our Airbnb while we are away. Claire's ability to offer great hospitality to the guests while also maintaining the Airbnb is reflected in the 5 star rating we continue to receive from our guests. Claire will always be our preferred house sitter when she is available.".

I also completed a house sit with a dog and four rabbits in Kurrajong 13 to 18 March 2018 and I am looking forward to going back there next year.

Completed a housesit in Thirroul (just chickens) from 28 May to 6 July 2018 and another in Leeton from 6 to14 July 2018. with Roxy the Boxer - review as follows
"David and myself were very happy with Claire looking after our ADHD Roxy Dog ( boxer) in July 2018 , would love to have her back anytime, Our house was immaculate and kept us updated on our over active pup.Thank you so much, we would recommend Claire to care for your pets and your home."

Additional reviews: Are available on my profile on airbnb. after the dot com add: /users/show/99979948#reviews.

I travel with my own linen, laundry supplies, food and some kitchen equipment (depends on what is available at your place - I am used to cooking for one and find it easier to bring a few of my own items).

Have: freedom, sense of humour, respect for people's privacy, clean police check for current employment, some IT and social media skills, current driver's licence to 09/2020. Own mobile internet if required.

Not into: chemicals and pesticides, smoking, most perfumes (and incense - seems to 'burn' my nostrils).

To be honest, I prefer dogs to cats, although very independent felines who just want to be fed and look at me from the distance with regal disdain are perfect; and prefer dogs who don't want to share my bed. I do have 3 grand dogs and two great-grand dogs - three of whom are Rottweilers, residing in the central tablelands (Orange) and Broken Hill. Chooks and bees would be great and I will be enrolling in a bee-keeping course later this year.
