Single, mature woman with excellent references will love your home, pets and garden! Immaculate housekeeper, detail oriented, non-smoker/drinker and quiet.

I have years of experience and excellent references from all over Oregon and California for house and petsitting as well as caretaking. I lived in Ashland for 19 years but have recently been traveling out of the area for housesits.
I have noteworthy references in that I am mature, responsible, reliable, respectful and trustworthy. I have much experience as a house manager/caretaker as well as a variety of animal care. I am a life-long lover of all animals and will love and nurture them with respect. I have studied animal communication, animal massage and energy work. The animals I care for love the relaxing and healing energy that I am privileged to give to them when I am with them.

I will take loving care of your home, pets, and plants and property as if they were my own as well as handle the details of mail/trash/outside gardening and provide security for your home while you are gone, so that you can rest assured that everything is being taken care of. My profile can also be found on Rover complete with background check.

 I have many excellent references from clients who know me well, available upon request.

I am flexible on location and time duration, but prefer long-term especially if traveling a distance from home state or area.

Of course I love animals, all kinds! I am a Master Gardener so if you have a garden or indoor plants, they will not die while you are gone! I love nature and beach walks, walking the dog or cat! bunny or ?? I love reading, yoga, playing ukelele and I have worked with rescue horses.

....recommendations from previous clients.........

I have known A. for over 20 years. She is a hard-working, creative, responsible and reliable
She was a caretaker for me for approximately two years while we prepared a former home and extensive property to sell and then placed it on the market as we were coming out of the Great Recession. She helped with thorough cleaning, interior painting, windows, carpet cleaning and maintained the landscape and swimming pool during that time. While the house was on the market, she kept it ready to show and worked seamlessly with the realtors through many showings.
She also cared for one of our cats whom we could not take to our new home.
I know she loves animals, connects deeply with them, and enjoys caring for them.
I can wholeheartedly recommend her for both caretaking and animal care.

"My husband I would like to strongly recommend A. as a pet and house sitter. We had her take care of our animals in our home for two weeks in January 2019 and had her again for a month in March. She was very easy to communicate with and asked good questions, when I was going through the animals routine. When we came back, we found our dog and cat very well taken care of. Our cat is on a thyroid pill and she was able to give that to her daily. We could tell she loved animals by the way she talked to them. She also gave them cute names...
We came home to a very clean home, with her sheets and towels washed and her bed made. We are looking forward to her taking care of our animals and house again."

"It is our pleasure to have this opportunity to tell anyone that may be looking for a house sitter, of our wonderful experience with A. After her initial call to us she drove an hour out to meet us and to meet our dogs. First you must know that we have 9 dogs of various breeds and ages, all big dogs over 50lbs except for 2 sm/med sized guys. She was not overwhelmed or intimidated, just curious about each one. She asked lots of questions and stayed for their 5:00 pm feeding so she would know exactly how they were fed. A. is a very organized and detailed person.
We felt that she would do everything we asked, two feedings a day and at least one walk every morning. She did it all and we came home to 9 happy and well loved dogs. A. still s us asking about them and says she loved the experience and kept us updated while we were in Europe. She’s a beautiful person and truly has a big heart for animals. Everything was spotless when we returned. If you give her an opportunity you may just find yourself looking for somewhere to go so you can have A. care for your pets/home knowing you’re in good hands. It’s not easy to leave our pets but so nice when you find the right person."

A. stayed at my house several times, taking care of the house and our four pets, two dogs and two cats. I trusted her from the moment I met her. She quickly established a connection with the dogs and was careful to understand their routine and their indoor and outdoor rules. She even brought a new toy for the big dog (a lab mix) which he continues to enjoy. The cats also took to A; after watching for a while from a distance, they slowly worked their way closer and ultimately slept with her. In addition to being great with the animals, I always felt that A. cared about taking care of the house as well.
