More information about this house sitter


My name is Sharon, originally from the UK, I absolutely love animals and enjoy housesitting, having carried out assignments in Auckland, New Zealand. I adore New Zealand having lived there for 16yrs but would now like to experience life in WA.

I arrived in Perth at the end of March 2019 with my 3 rescue cats! I appreciate this is not the norm but they have been amazing and settle within days, they love to explore and respect their new spaces. It has been much easier than I imagined.

I totally understand your home is your pets home first and foremost. I take time and care to ensure introductions are done at a gentle pace, so that there is no stress. My cats are all very sweet, sensitive, gentle natured and run from confrontation. They will appreciate your pets territory and find their own quiet safe spaces and are very adaptable to whatever space is available.

We spent 3.5months housesitting in beautiful Kalamunda. I took care of 2 gorgeous dogs, a Ridgeback and Jack Russell. Being older gals they required some care due to health issues so we took shorth walks twice a day in the bush across the road. It went so well the owner extended her trip by another 5wks. I also helped her family out with school runs and found casual work at a local B&B so can provide some excellent references.

I have always been an animal lover, having had dogs growing up but never been in a position to own one myself, so have always had to borrow family/friends' dogs for walks etc. Cats found me when I moved to NZ, and I have taken in a number of strays. I have spent time over the past 3 years volunteering at local cat rescues too so I have the gentle, patient nature required to make animals feel loved and quickly at ease.

I have had great experiences housesitting, meeting some lovely people and being totally trusted to take care of cats, dogs, horses, chickens, sheep, fish and now a Llama and I absolutely love it! I especially enjoy being able to give people peace of mind whilst they are away, knowing their pets and home are safe and being well cared for. I really appreciate how important this is.

I'm a kind natured person, quiet but friendly, easy going and happy at home with the company of animals. I am self-sufficient, sensible and great at problem solving, so can deal with issues should they arise. I am tech savvy and happy to send photos and keep you in touch with your pets :)

I have owned 3 homes in the UK and have rented 3 properties in NZ, always long term and on good terms with the landlords, due to the pride I take in caring for and maintaining a property both inside and out. I enjoy spring cleaning and keeping a tidy garden.

I am eco-friendly, love nature, sailing, music, art and have an interest in natural health. As a Reiki practitioner, I have provided Reiki to patients at the local Hospice and organised Natural Therapy talks to schools around Auckland.

I settled for 4mths in Forrestfield after securing a job at Perth Airport which ended due to Covid. I am now keen to return to housesitting and ready to try life south of Perth so would be happy to help out while you head off on your adventures!

I take the responsibility of housesitting seriously, so would never leave your pets or home unattended for long periods or overnight.

I hope I have provided enough information to assure you that I am an open, honest person, totally reliable and trustworthy. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask as I appreciate this is most important when entrusting your home and pets to a stranger.

I am a non-smoker and can only accept assignments in non-smoking homes as I am sensitive to smoke and the smell of nicotine sorry :)

I look forward to hearing from you!
Kind regards
