More information about this house sitterHi,
I'm a local Cairns resident and am offering house and pet sitting services to residents in Cairns.
I am available for home/pet sitting within 30kms of Cairns CBD. I house sit using many other websites too. I have added a couple of my reviews as 'images' here. (By the way, I've bought a new car since the review was written - no more leaking oil :-D).
A little bit about me.... I decided to start house sitting on a regular basis because I love and enjoy the grounding energy that animals and pets provide and I'm currently not able to have my own pets on a permanent basis. So, house and pet sitting was the perfect option for me to spend time loving and caring for other peoples pets. I have taken care of all different species of pets, including rare exotic birds, dogs, cats, fish, reptiles and farm animals, to name a few.
I work Mon-Fri in Cairns city for State Government. This means I have a very regular routine throughout the week. So, if you're a working person/couple I offer a similar routine to what your pets are already use to. On weekends, I like to take the dogs to swimming holes or a secluded beach (if permitted by the owners). My car is large enough to fit 2 dogs easily.
I am a fit and active 46yo and I am absolutely committed to you when I agree to take care of your home and pets. I have great regard for people's privacy, therefore I do not invite anyone to your home while I am a guest there. I don't drink, smoke or drug. I also do what I can to reduce my impact on the environment and am very considerate and conservative of electricity and water use etc., while I'm in your home.
I enjoy a clean environment and take pride in leaving your home fresh and clean for your return. I can mow the lawns (I have loads of experience taking care of large gardens), clean the pool and filters, tend to the garden and even run errands you need done (such as parcel collection) and so on. Being in the garden pottering around and spending time with animals is not a chore for me - thats how I relax.
As a local northern tropics resident, I'm savvy when it comes to making your home 'cyclone ready' at short notice should the need arise while you're away.
I will stay in regular contact with you while you're away (unless you request otherwise) and send you updates and photos of your beloved pets.
I usually come and meet you and your pets before you go away and go through all the specific details with regards to your pets and the way you would like your home cared for (each pet owner has their own needs for their homes and I adapt to whatever these needs are).
I have legitimate current references for you to contact and a current police check. I encourage you to contact my references as they will put you at ease if this is the first time you are choosing to have a pet sitter stay in your home.
So, if you're looking for someone to take care of your beautiful beloved pets in your home, whether it be for one time only or with potential for me to become your regular sitter, it would be great to hear from you and we can arrange a phone call.
