More InformationI offer:
- a love of pets, gardening and home maintenance
- experience house-sitting locally and internationally, with multiple rave reviews
- the flexibility to take on short and long term house-sitting projects
- a reputation for providing an outstanding experience for home-owners.
I’m a healthcare professional who enjoys clean-living - I’m non-smoking and love to exercise, so any active pets will be sure to get their daily walks in nature.
I divide my time between writing articles from home and working as a professional paramedic, which allows me ample time to give your pets plenty of love and attention, while also keeping your home and garden clean and well-maintained.
I can confidently assure you that your pride and joy will be expertly cared for. And in order to help ensure you return home feeling stress-free, I am happy to assist with errands (mail collection, forwarding important documents onto you if needed, taking the bins out, starting your car engine as required so the battery doesn't go flat etc) and will happily keep you updated on how things are going via email, Facebook or Whatsapp - whichever you find most convenient.
I have been fortunate to care for homes both locally and internationally - excerpts from key references are provided below, with the full letters of recommendation available in the attachments.
M. Leslie of Elwood writes: “The house was spotless, the dogs were VERY happy and calm when I returned and I was really able to relax knowing they were in such good hands. I would absolutely recommend Amanda to anyone (actually I already have!) and I really hope that you’re available next time I head off as well!”
S. Umapalan of Elsternwick writes: “I was very nervous about using someone I didn’t know to look after my house - and more importantly my dog - while I was away interstate. Amanda has the most lovely and caring nature and on meeting her you really do feel at ease. Amanda’s organisation and communication throughout was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. Best of all, I returned home to a very happy and well looked after dog and a home that actually looked and smelled better than the way I’d left it! It was the nicest feeling to walk in and realise someone had taken the trouble to think of the smallest details to make coming home such a breeze.”
P. Montmarte of Paris writes: “What can I say - Amanda pays attention to even the smallest details - absolute perfection!”
L. Brigante of Florence, Italy writes “Amanda was all we hoped for and more - reliable, very tidy, and maintained ongoing communication throughout. It was a pleasure to have her. Highly recommended!”
J. Weber of San Francisco, California: “Amanda was an absolute breeze to deal with. We can easily recommend her to other home-owners and would welcome her back anytime! Easily five stars!”

I am currently available for house-sitting assignments 2 weeks or longer in duration and would welcome the opportunity to speak with you about your home & pet care requirements.
