Animal / Garden Lover

57, Retired

My name is Amanda and I have been House Sitting for many years throughout Western Australia, Darwin, Queensland and Victoria, all places I love exploring. As a Writer of Poetry and Children's Short Stories I can always be found sitting quietly writing, so your pets will never be alone, unless I need to pop out for supplies. Once called an "Animal Whisperer" I have found I am able to relate and communicate with animals of all ages and sizes. As a lover of Elephants, I just had to include a photo of my adopted baby male Elephant Mapia who lives in Africa and I have recently adopted Kiasa a cheeky little female only 23 months old.
I am a non-smoking vegetarian, who loves life and gardening so your plants will continue their growth in my nurturing hands.
Thankyou for reading my short Profile and if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

Our pets thoroughly enjoyed being looked after by Amanda. I was not able to meet her prior to the sit as she was sitting out of area. She arrived the night before I left and our dog Bonnie welcomed her like an old friend. I took that as a very good sign. She is a warm and friendly person. The house was kept clean, neat and tidy. Amanda likes to garden so I was thrilled when she asked if she could do some weeding. Giving her free rein, we came home to neat garden beds and a repotted, welcoming ... MORE

Amanda was AMAZING and looked after our little cat so beautifully. She left our house so clean and tidy. Would love to have her house sit again. Amanda is kind, thoughtful and will look after your due baby so well. Our cat loved her. Thank you Amanda.

Although we didn't meet Amanda until the day we left on our holiday, we immediately felt at ease with her and could see our cocker spaniel warming up to her. Amanda communicated well whilst we were away and sent through a couple of pics. We would have no problems recommending her and hope that one day she can sit for us again. Ps...thanks for the books...

Amanda was a fabulous house and pet sitter and I have no hesitation in recommending her. My house was cleaner than I left it, the garden and outdoor space were very tidy and my pets had obviously been very well cared for. Amanda also kept me updated with pictures. I would be very happy for Amanda to do return visits

Amanda was fantastic, she was very easy to deal with, took wonderful care of our beautiful girls and as a bonus cleaned up and weeded our garden, such a lovely surprise to come home to. Both our beautiful golden Tricks and Piper loved her. We would definitely book Amanda for our next house sit, she was great.

Amanda was able to look after my two dogs and home for a month. The house and dogs were all in excellent shape when I got home, it appears the dogs were sadder to see her go than to see me come home! Amanda did a fabulous job and also did some gardening and all in all everything was just wonderful. I have no hesitation in recommending her at all and have booked her again for next holidays.

I cannot express my thanks to Amanda. Amanda is a very caring person and looked, cared for my two little dogs and my home. I came home to two very happy dogs and my home was so clean and tidy. Amanda has a very friendly, polite, understanding and a very confident pet and house sitter.

Amanda was a fantastic house sitter. She clearly loved animals and took great care of our dogs and cat. Our home was spotless on return and we had great communication from Amanda. Would definitely recommend :)
