More InformationI spend most of my time at home writing & will happily care for your home & give lots of love & attention to your animals.
I prefer animals loved as part of the family & allowed inside the home (night and day).
I love animals (cats & dogs equally) and spend a lot of time ensuring they feel secure and loved from the moment I arrive. I am very reliable, non smoker, clean, quiet, respectful of your home and privacy. I am great with nervous or older animals, giving medication, ball throwing/daily walks for dogs, regular updates while you are away.
Many of my house sits are return sits and I have great references (contactable).
I prefer house sits of a month or longer but I often do shorter sits to fill gaps between the longer ones.
I'm more likely to take house sits in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, surrounding areas, and possibly Northern NSW over coming months, but will also consider other areas.
I am currently located in the Sunshine Coast area in Queensland.
I often reply to enquiries straight away if I am near email, otherwise I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Below I have included a few reviews from previous house sits (I am unable to post these in the review section here as they were booked through and are posted on another house sitting website - can provide link)
Looking forward to hearing from you, Susan
House sitting reviews:
Sue - Black Mountain, Qld
Sit date: September 2018
Susan was a very reliable house sitter. She looked after our cat and plants really well. She kept us updated with the home situation regularly whilst we were away. The house was lovely and clean on our return. We would thoroughly recommend her to anyone.
Sam & Roxy - Tin Can Bay, Qld
Sit date: March 2018
It takes a lot to be able to walk away from your home, leaving everything of value and meaning to you, in the hands and care, to somebody you do not know, or have never met before. We were able to do this with Susan, and were delighted she offers this service, allowing us to have a stress free holiday.
To the fact, that our precious little Maltese dog was actually disappointed that it was ya that walked through the door, and not Susan!
We were kept up to date with email messages regarding our dog and any maintenance issues, confirming Susan likes to keep you informed and the lines of communication open.
We have already made a tentative booking for Susan to house sit for us again, and would happily & confidently recommend her to others.

After meeting Susan we had no hesitation leaving our cat and our home in her care for a month. House was immaculate, garden well looked after and a very happy cat!

Susan is amazing!!! Susan loves animals and you can rest assured you will not need to worry about your pet while you away. Susan looked after our 12 y/o family dog, made sure he ate well, sometimes hand feeding him, exercised him appropriately for his age and made sure she created a bond with him so he felt comfortable. The house was spotless and mail collected. It's worrying when you ask a stranger to look after your best friend but Susan possesses strong ethics and morals and I would highly recommend her and once you know her you will be trying to book her first for the next holiday!
Jocelyn - Mosman NSW
Susan looked after our dog and house for a month with intelligence, warmth and diligence. We have a quite high maintenance pup and he was beautifully cared for, likewise our house. We recommend Susan wholeheartedly.
Janeece - Thornbury VIC
Their endorsement of you:
Susan was a really thoughtful and reliable house sitter for us. She spent time making our cat comfortable and interacting with her. She even left a few toys and a brush. I think our cat still misses her! She's also really considerate and kept in touch while we were away with progress reports. We had a really good first experience with house sitting and we will be contacting her again next time we are away.
Liz - Katoomba NSW
Susan was the perfect house-sitter. She took wonderful care of our cat, Tessa, and dog, Mika, and they were totally at ease with her. She followed all the directions we left about their particular quirks and fancies, walked Mika and played in the garden with her and indulged Tessa's love of lap-sitting. She also left an immaculate house for us on our return. We couldn't recommend her more highly! Liz and Sylvia
Lorna - Jan Juc, Vic
We warmly recommend Susan without any reservations to anyone seeking a thoroughly reliable house/pet sitter. She genuinely loves cats and dogs and she takes a caring and professional approach to their welfare. She is knowledgeable, asks the right questions, and goes the extra mile to give the house owner complete peace of mind. Susan respects other people's property and we have always returned to a clean and tidy house. Our indoor plants and tropical fish have also been well cared for. Susan has returned to us many times over the last 3 years and I trust this happy arrangement will continue. Our cats adore her and we go away each time knowing that all will be well on our return.
Carole - Northcote
We have been fortunate to have Susan housesit for us several times over the last couple of years. In fact, we now book our holidays around Susan's availability as she establishes a great bond with our very timid and nervous cat. We are able to leave home knowing he will be won over by Susan's patience and kindness. The fact that Susan works from home is also a bonus, both from a security point of view and for pampered puss. Susan is an intelligent, responsible woman who will deal sensibly with any issues that arise and is also very mindful and respectful of people's property and privacy.
Mary - Brunswick East, VIC
Susan housesat for us on a number of occasions and she was fantastic. Susan went above and beyond in her care of our pets and our house - we had complete confidence that all would be well which allowed us to fully relax while on holidays. On one occasion, she had to deal with a swarm of bees in our front yard - a bizarre and unexpected situation that she managed beautifully, tracking down someone to remove the bees and keeping us in the loop every step of the way. Having Susan as a housesitter means you'll be able to go away with peace of mind. She comes highly recommended from us!
Peter and Jill - Kangaroo Ground, VIC
Susan is one of those people who lives and breathes honesty and kindness. She looked after our house, garden and pets for 2 months while we travelled in 2010. The house was clean and tidy when we returned. Pots had been watered. We were very pleased with the experience and feel confident in recommending Susan as a house sitter. Jill and Peter, Kangaroo Ground, Vic
Judie - Kew, VIC
Susan has house / dog sat on a number of occasions for us now and I can't recommend her highly enough. Her empathy with our dog is wonderful and I have no qualms in leaving her in charge while we travel. The fact that she works from home means our dog has the constant company she is used to.
