More information about this house sitter
Hello my name is Sara, and I am very happy to be here on Mindahome :) I have been enjoying many wonderful times looking after and caring for homes and pets since October 2017! In these years, I have been house sitting continuously (except during the lockdowns when I rented for 2 years when I was 'locked' into NSW).
This is such an enriching and enjoyable thing to do! In each location, I care for the home, pets, and gardens as if they were my own. Laughter, well-being, and happiness are such important things in life. I love new experiences, and am aware that sometimes we cannot easily go on holidays or have time to ourselves when we have pets, gardens, and homes to look after. It is a great pleasure, therefore, to help home and pet owners spend time away, safe in the knowledge that their home and pets are being loved, appreciated, and well cared for while they’re away. House sitting also allows me to spend time writing, exploring, and being in a new environment.
I have a wealth of experience with looking after homes, gardens and pets of many different sizes, and in many different locations, from neighbourly suburbs, to remote areas, and in farming/wine growing communities. I am hands on when needed to be, and an experienced gardener, having built several from scratch, with local native as well as exotic plants. I truly love nature, animals, birds, and Earth, and enjoy the ways in which they help to nurture and heal mind, body and soul.
House sitting and looking after pets is a wonderful focus, now that my 2 children are young adults. It is lovely to meet home owners and to care for their home and pets. I truly respect and appreciate being welcomed into peoples’ homes in this way! I also have made some wonderful friends with home owners during my time house sitting, and many have invited me to return to house sit - and sometimes many times. This is something that I appreciate so much :)
Pets bring such happiness and joy. I particularly enjoy cats, and having their company. I also love dogs, and particularly enjoy dogs that are happy to chill out and relax while I’m writing :) Pets are so special in our lives!
Owners have commented that their pets seem to gravitate towards me, and are happy to approach me, and often want to sit close to me - or on me! - soon after we are introduced :) As well, with my background in massage therapies and healing - I tend to massage pets, rather than simply stroke them, and it’s great to connect to these beautiful furry friends in this way as well!
For more than 30 years I have been providing guidance, intuitive counselling, healing, meditation, yoga, and more, to help clients navigate through the challenges that life can bring, and find greater happiness, peace, comfort and well-being. House sitting has sometimes even brought me times when I’ve been able to help the family or neighbours during a house sit.
I now provide intuitive counselling and guidance online and by phone as well, and this creates a wonderful balance during the house sit - particularly when gorgeous pets are close by, keeping me company :) I also write, so relaxing home environments are very important. This all brings me such joy and many blessings, and the income enables me to continue to provide house and pet sitting, and to travel!
I especially appreciate house sits that are peaceful and situated in nature, and that offer beautiful gardens, as these things bring me great happiness. I also enjoy gardening and appreciate being amongst the plants! :)
When I was married and my children were little, we had a hobby farm for 8 years in the Adelaide Hills. I learnt so many wonderful new things during this time of my life! Shearing, bush care, gardening, slashing, weeding, fencing, planting veggies and fruit trees, and caring for sheep, agisted horses and cows - all this alongside caring for the home and family :) It was also great when we began to have WOOFERS (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) come to stay and help.
We sold the farm so that we could spend more time travelling, to camp in Australia, and visit family and friends in England and Europe.
Since beginning house sitting, I have loved discovering the immense and diverse beauty of all the south eastern states, and southern Queensland.
I came to live in Australia from England in 1995. Melbourne and Adelaide were my home towns for many years. I travelled to Egypt extensively during this time, where I ran tours. Closer to home, I managed and ran a romantic bed and breakfast Cottage in Aldgate, in the Adelaide Hills, when I enjoyed meeting many new guests, and keeping the cottage sparkling and welcoming.
Since then I have been enjoying this new amazing house sitting adventure, caring for pets, homes and gardens, travelling, exploring, and providing consultations when appropriate, with wonderful support and encouragement from my children and friends. This journey brings me immense joy, and I feel truly blessed! Read more...
