More information about this house sitter

Introduction
Greetings from Queensland!

I am a highly experienced (25 years) house-sitter and home exchanger.

I am max vaxed.

A non-smoker, I am an active, adventurous, travel-addicted AQUAholic. A retired Social Services and Health Executive, I now do a little remote consulting and freelance corporate and travel writing when I’m in the mood.

My own home and garden is well maintained, clean, and tidy. I'll ensure yours is too.

I do not charge for my sitting services.

Where Do I Sit
I'm open to offers, but at the moment I'm particularly interested in sits in Redland Bay where I'll be relocating to in early 2023.

Why Do I sit
To pamper your pets and enjoy your home and garden, of course! ... and to feed my travel and photography addiction, discover new environments, find new stories, meet new people, and immerse myself in different communities and cultures.

Experience
I have enjoyed both house-sitting and house-swapping and home exchange for 25 years. In the four years pre-COVID, I completed 17 sits (Australia, Europe, and the South Pacific), including three months in a remote olive grove on the magnificent Greek island of Crete; two months on one of New Zealand’s wild beaches; and six weeks where Queensland’s rainforest meets the reef.

I am confident and capable in a wide range of settings. I own and maintain my own home, situated in a remote setting in southeast Queensland. I have owned an off-grid, 100acre, property which I managed solo for many years (I raised African Bore Goats and Alpacas, and I rescued Donkeys).

I have owned and loved many pets; cats, Kelpies, Border Collies, and Jack Russels.

While sitting, I have expertly cared for a wide variety of animals and many charming homes and gardens located on acreage, at the beach, on islands, in the mountains, and in inner-city locations. I am capable and confident in most environments, including with tanks, pumps, solar, enviro-toilets, pools. Unsealed roads and tracks don’t phase me. I can provide excellent references.

Why Choose Me?
Because I offer current Australian Federal Police and Queensland State security clearances, and excellent references. I bring 20 years experience, both nationally and internationally. I love animals, they seem to love me, and I treat them as one of the family. If your dogs are well socialised I will take them everywhere with me. I am resourceful and resilient. I am fussy about my environment and am very clean and tidy. I treat my sitting assignments as a job and I am highly professional.
