WHAT YOU GET :
Total peace of mind,as your home and animals are in the best possible hands, being well loved and cared for by an adaptable, sensible and trustworthy person. I'm happy to arrive early before you leave and so could drop off or pick up owners if vehicle available, as I have extensive international driving experience. Regular and reliable communication also assured, or as desired.
If you've got spoiled pooches or fabulous felines who prefer company during the night and are used to sleeping in bedrooms, that's all OK too... exercise, feeding, cleaning and affection delivered regularly, to all animals ,and with a smile.
*WHY CHOOSE ME: I'm highly reliable, educated, fit, practical, seasoned, honest, intelligent and mobile ! Happily single, kids grown and pets gone. I've also traveled extensively in work roles.
I'm financially able to travel pretty much anywhere at relatively short notice. I'm a great reader and writer, and enjoy pottering in the kitchen, library, garden, barns and fields, accessible markets, galleries, and cafes, so time doesn't hang heavily for me.
I'm also a home owner myself, so I understand why choosing the right person is so very important for peace of mind.
***WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR : I'm negotiable on length of sit, where care of pets, discretion, management of household affairs or staff, home, pool or gardens are a priority for you.
I'd like to negotiate regarding possible use of a vehicle, access to pantry basics, no or low cost utilities, to be met and returned to nearest airport or train station at start and end of period ( or costs covered ) and Wifi access if possible. I'll replace the basics as needed. I'm resourceful and perfectly happy in my own company when required, and simply enjoy animals, in new cultures. I speak English, basic Spanish and German. House and pet caring is the perfect solution for you and me.
MY EXPERIENCE :
I've previously happily house sat NZ, Sth Africa, Mexico, Austalia, USA and UK.
I've had responsibility for business security, home security, payment of accounts, gardening, and ensuring the welfare in all aspects, of dogs , cats, chickens and horses. No animals unwelcome to care for.
My previous 10 years within NZ government agencies and the private sector has exposed me to many cultures and countries. I'm also a home owner myself, respectful and discreet, honest and responsible and have the intelligence to solve problems as they might arise. I'm also culturally sensitive and relate easily with other people and animals.
I'll respect your privacy, and ensure your beloved pets and home are cared for as you do. Just relax and know all's well at your place, while I'm there. Ive got great references I'm very happy to provide, with contact details.
