I have been housesitting around the world for nearly 15 years...and loving it!
I am a widow, a retired teacher, an author and motivator, travelling the world on my own. I am a non-smoker, non-drinker. My husband and I had our own business for many years. I am a freelance writer, and also writing children's books. I need peace and quiet. I love the cold and snow!
I am happy to consider anywhere with easy access to small shop for groceries, as I do not have a vehicle. However, I have a clean current driver's licence and have been permitted to drive many of the home owner's cars. If you have a vehicle I can use, I would appreciate it. I am happy to drive you to and from the airport, take pets to the vet if needed, etc. I have never had a driving offence - or any other offence.
I love animals and would be happy to care for them. I also enjoy walking, so exercising animals is a pleasure.
I need WiFi Internet access for my computer.
I am honest and trustworthy.
I have had house sits in Australia and many sits around the world all of which I thoroughly enjoyed.
I can supply references and contact details of home owners.
Below is a recent thank you note from a happy homeowner...
"We are so grateful for the excellent job you did house-sitting and looking after the two delinquents. You went more miles than we ever expected in the care you took both of them and leaving us with the pin-clean house. You are so kind, considerate, thoughtful and practical too and we loved all your email reports and photos.
So glad you enjoyed your stay and we really hope you may be able to do so again.
Most of all we loved getting to know you and hearing about your lovely family and all of your experiences, far and wide. It has been a pleasure and we look forward to continuing that and to keeping in touch.
We look forward to hearing about your next adventures and wish you all the best for the year away from home. Hope Heather will remain stable for you.
We all think you are a Star, a Diamond and a Keeper.
Let us know if there's anything else we can do for you while you're in the UK and beyond.
