More information about this house sitter

Hello, My name is Marina...
I moved here to live in Perth 6 years ago from Melbourne and I have been happily house sitting all my my 'adopted' furry family continuously for the past 6 years here as well as in Melbourne.
I work part time in Cottesloe as a Personal carer/trainer in aged care and love the lifestyle I have chosen looking after all my ‘adopted fur babies ‘ and house sitting clients homes.
Wonderful babies ranging from Puppies, very elderly doggies and cats needing medication, frogs, lizards..... and even the odd child on occasion.
I have always had pets in my life and cannot imagine life without a pet to love and care for. My parents bred and showed dachshunds through all my childhood years so I am used to having furry babies to look after.
My aim at every housesit is to bring lots of love, cuddles, care to each and every pet and most importantly, peace of mind to all my lovely clients.
I am very blessed to have fantastic regular clients around Mosman Park, Cottesloe, Subiaco, Hillarys, Wembley and Maylands
I have included below extracts from some of my house sitting references which you are most welcome to contact and have a chat to so that you know your fur babies will be in caring,loving, kind and practical hands when you are away.

(NOTE - Original references including Full Names & Contact details all available on request only to protect clients privacy. After our initial meeting you are more than welcome to contact & have a chat with my house sitting clients to enable complete peace of mind for you and your furry family member )
To whom it may concern,
‘I was very fortunate to have Marina Brodrick house sit for me for two and a half weeks recently, while I was overseas. Marina was recommended to me by a close friend who has had her look after her house and pets on a number of occasions.
House sitters, other than family and young friends of the family, who have helped me in the past, are new to me, but Marina came with the highest recommendation from my friend and for that reason, I didn't hesitate to have her look after my home. Prior to my departure I was impressed by how professionally she approached the task. She sent me a proforma information document to complete which addressed contact details (including regular trades) for any unexpected matters which may arise, insurance details (which could be left with a contact person I nominated), procedural issues like bin days etc. Pertinent information regarding pet care was also included in the document, where pet care was required.
Marina made an appointment to meet me to "walk through" and get to know the house, it's quirks and any special care requests that I might have.
While I was away, Marina kept in comfortable email contact, advising that all was well at home.
I was thrilled on my return, to find the house not just as I had left it, but sparkling! Not only had she left the house immaculate, but she had gone to the trouble of providing food staples and more, so that I could just drop my bags, unpack and relax.
I can't recommend Marina highly enough!
Kind regards

Marina did housesitting for me during the last two weeks of February in Hillarys, Perth.
I can only say that I stood in awe of the way she took care of my home, my daughter and my dog. I know that Marina normally just looks after houses and pets, but she did me a great favour to “babysit” my 17 year old daughter too. Not only did she take care of her, but she also went the extra mile and filled my boots as being “mommy”!
Marina is a caring, loving and giving person with a wonderful heart. Her touch can be seen everywhere in the house and she is extremely thorough and diligent.
Her neatness and cleanliness also goes a long way.
When I returned after my trip she had washed the car, cleaned the house, washed the bedding and towels. My house was in a better condition than I left it in!
I can highly recommend Marina looking after any home, she has excellent experience and loves animals. She took our dog to the dog beach on numerous occasions even though I did not expect this from her.
If anybody needs a reference from me, please do not hesitate to contact me
I can honestly say that I will leave my house in Marina’s care at any given point in my life. She is one of a kind and I guarantee complete peace of mind when you leave your house and pets in her care.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN...It is with great pleasure that I can thoroughly recommend Marina Brodrick as a house and pet sitter. Marina looked after our home, dog, cat, fish & frogs late September and most of October 2014 and from the first contact that I had with Marina over the phone I felt totally confident and at ease in leaving her to care for our most precious pets. Marina is a lovely person and clearly loves animals and they in turn loved her! My neighbours are still asking after her and commenting on what a friendly lovely person she was. Marina was very efficient and thorough in making sure she had contact details of trades people we use incase anything needed attending to while we were away. I think that our house was cleaner when I got back than when we left and she had even stocked our fridge with essentials knowing that we were back too late to get to the shops. Another thoughtful touch that was greatly appreciated was that Marina would send us photo's of our pets and text or email us to let us know how they were and what they had been getting up to.
Kind regards Sue (Subiaco)
To whom it may concern

Marina Brodrick house sat for me for three months in 2014.
During this time she not only looked after my home and garden but most importantly she cared for my two cats as if they were her own.
She sent me regular updates, with photos, so I would know that they were happy and well looked after.
When I returned my home was beautifully clean and tidy and the gardens weeded.
The special added touch of fresh bread and milk and a meal waiting for me were very much appreciated.
I would not hesitate to recommend Marina or have her look after my home and cats again.

To whom it may concern

I am pleased to provide a written and verbal reference for Marina Brodrick. She has just recently house-sit my home for the past three weeks and when I returned it looked better than I left it. The plants were healthy, the pool looked great and she even washed my car as it looked dusty.
Marina is a kind and gentle person who I immediately felt complete sense of trust to the point where I did not feel the need to check her references. She is highly organised and kept me up to date with anything she felt was of importance via email.
I found Marina trust worthy and reliable and would have no hesitation in recommending her to mind my home, pets or children. She is indeed a very lovely lady that made me feel very comfortable and secure leaving my home in her safe hands.

I will probably check her availability in future prior to booking any travel arrangements.

To whom it may concern

My husband and I recently found Marina Brodrick via the Aussie House sitter’s website.
Seeing as we had never used this option to find someone suitable to look after our house and more importantly our dog I was abit hesitant. After meeting Marina prior to going away we both found her to be a friendly, responsible, nice natured lady and even our dog seemed to warm up to her when she arrived (and that never happens).
We both felt we got a good “vibe” from Marina and agreed to have her house and pet sit, and I am so grateful for the wonderful job she did.
She cleaned and respected our home, it was immaculate when we arrived home, and our dog in the way I imagine she would if it was her own. Infact our dog got quite spoilt from her. We had contact most days and she always wrote emails letting me know how things were going which I really liked.
I would not hesitate in recommending someone as trustworthy as Marina to anyone travelling and I definitely got the peace of mind I needed when leaving your home and pets with someone.
We will be using Marina again in the future if we ever need to.
Kind regards

RE: Reference for Marina Brodrick

To whom it may concern,
My husband and I have been good friends with Marina since having the pleasure of meeting her over four years ago. We can honesty say that she is one of the kindest hearted, caring, trust worthy friends we have.
We were delighted when Marina offered to house sit for us when we told her our plans of travelling to Europe for a month as we knew we could rely on her to look after our home and our beloved cat.
Whilst we were away Marina kept in contact with us via email and regularly set us photos of our cat who had obviously bonded with her very quickly and we could tell how well she was being looked after in our absence.
Marina is an incredibly responsible, organised individual who brings a positive atmosphere to her surroundings. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a house sitter. She has a wonderful way of caring for everything and everyone that she meets. If you would like to further discuss this reference then please don’t hesitate to contact me

I have known Marina for the past 6 years and she has looked after my home and my factory/ office when I have been traveling. I have always found her to be friendly and adaptable as well as being completely trustworthy and respectful of my properties. She has a great rapport with pets and they are always loved and cared for as if they were her own.

She has always looked after my home with great care and it has always looked wonderful when I have returned from my travels and she has even assisted me with my paperwork while I was away which have been a pleasure to come home to.

I would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to travel and needing the peace of mind of knowing that their home and their pets will be looked after with lots of TLC. Regards

To Whom It May Concern:
This is to recommend Marina Broderick for any house sitting services that you may require.
Marina looked after my house recently, together with my two cats.
Apart from being a lovely person, Marina cared for my cats in the way I would do myself.
On return from my holiday, I found my house to be immaculately clean and tidy. My mail had been collected from the mailbox and was waiting inside for me. The garden and my potted plants had been watered and cared for and Marina had shown a great respect for my house.
I have requested that Marina looks after my house and cats again in October when I go to the UK.
I, therefore, have no hesitation in recommending this lovely lady.
