Hello, I am Clare, retired ABC radio and television presenter and experienced house & pet-sitter of over 30 years (see references for details).
I lead a quiet, simple life - studying, walking, swimming and gardening, whilst seeking to maintain good health in aesthetically pleasing environments and like to care for homes that are well maintained by their owners.
Whilst I have cared for a variety of domestic animals in the past, I now prefer to care for indoor/outdoor cats, or other not too boisterous or demanding animals.
To this end, I migrate between the coastal areas of mainland Australia and Tasmania and always receive requests from to return again to the homes I have cared for.
All my referees are happy to be contacted personally.
Seeking to house-sit in peaceful coastal areas, close to easily accessible water for outdoor swimming, incl: Sydney's Northern Beaches/Pittwater, NSW Central Coast: Ettalong, Woy Woy, Umina, Patonga, Avoca, Terrigal, Wamberal. Tasmania (Oct - May only) South Arm, Opossum Bay, Roches Beach, Lauderdale, Orford, Kingston Beach, Blackmans Bay and anywhere else on the coast that I have yet to become acquainted with.
