Animal Lover, Treat your home like my own

39, Management Consultant

I'm currently booked until the 28th November (I have a couple of days flexibility here), but if you are looking for a long term sit after this please feel free to get in touch.

Highly experienced and professional house sitter, over 50 housesits completed .

Hi, I'm Alicia, I am a 39 year old finance professional, raised in Melbourne who has been housesitting on a full time basis since late 2017. What I intended to be a short term solution has turned into 2 years of permanently housesitting. Doing a great job looking after your pets and your home is important to me as its how I get referrals for further house sits. Once confirmed I will never (and have never) cancelled a sit.

I love animals and have previously owned dogs (various Labrador X's) including 2 rescue dogs, tropical fish and have shared houses with lizards, cats and a variety of birds (chickens, canaries, love birds and a cockatiel). I also have experience looking after marine fish, rabbits and guinea pigs. I do draw the line at snakes and spiders though (sorry I'm not a fan).

I have experience with administering numerous medications to animals, including creams, injections and tablets. I've attended dog training with all of my previous dogs and am happy to help out if your pets have minor behavioural issues. Happy for animals to sleep either inside with me or outside as required by you.

I will live in and keep your home as I would my own, I prefer to always meet you and your pets in person prior to a sit and will ask you lots of questions to ensure your pets (garden and home) are looked after, not only to my high standards, but more importantly to yours. I will seek to understand your expectations on updates and contact whilst you are away, any health issues your pets may have had or do have and anything I need to know about your home.

I work full time, however, I am able to take your pets for up to twice daily walks with ease. I have the ability to work from home generally around once a week, however if you need someone to be at home with your pet all day every day, then, unfortunately I am not the right sitter for you. I will give your pets lots of love and attention before and after work though!

I have previously used housesitters to care for my dog and so understand the potential nervousness you can feel when leaving your home and pets in the hands of a stranger. I have a current police check and references.

I would love to be considered for your next housesit and look forward to speaking with you.

Alicia looked after our house but more importantly our Staffy, Missy so well. She gave us regular updates on things which was so reassuring, The house was in perfect condition when we returned from our time away. Do not hesitate to book Alicia - I know we will again.

Alicia is welcome to sit for us at any time.
JOHN (Prahran East VIC, Jan 2019)

STUART (Elwood VIC, Nov 2018 - 1 month 1 week)
Thanks for looking after our house and pets! Very easy to deal with, professional and responsible.
KATRINA (Glen Iris VIC, Oct 2018 - 1 week 1 day)
This was a first time experience for us. It was indeed a pleasure to have Alicia take care of our place for this extended period. On return, we would hardly have known there had been an occupant in the house - all was in great shape ! Alicia was a pleasure to deal with, professional & personable, & clearly totally reliable. We highly recommend her as a a great housesitter, based on this experience.
MARTYN JAMES (Brunswick VIC, May 2018 - 3 months)
Alicia house sat twice for me in short succession, looking after my cat Saffron during her training to use the human toilet (Saffron, not Alicia!) I returned each time to find everything sorted and just like I left it - probably the reason that Alicia is consistently house sitting. Overall I highly recommend Alicia for anyone looking to have a house sitter. Thanks Alicia.

No rating Alicia did a wonderful sit for us. She looked after our dog who requires daily medication. She provided us with regular updates while we were away. The house and garden were well cared for and very tidy on our return. Would happily recommend Alicia for pet and house sits.

House Security

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
