There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
House & Pet Sitting by Karen
49, Crafter / writer / Volunteer online work
Hi, I am a 49years young and I have started house and pet sitting in order to travel and see parts the country, while saving money for a van of my own. I have 3 adult children and aim to travel to North Queensland in the winter months to spend time with them. Spring to Autumn sees me in the Southern parts (Generally Southern Tablelands) of Australia, where the temperature tends to be cooler / less humid which is better suited to my health / lifestyle. I especially enjoy time in the country and quieter areas.
I spend my time writing (self-help blogs and currently my autobiography), making craft (Trees of Life) and doing online volunteer work. I have started a couple of websites, founded an organisation (currently working on charity status) and do online volunteer work.
I am very responsible and treat a house (whether rented or housesitting) with great care and respect. I am a non smoker, and while I do not currently have a pet of my own, I love the company of animals and have cared for dogs, cats, horses, cattle, goats, birds, chickens, rabbits, mice and rats over the years.
I have referees which can be provided on request. I have also recently started a housesitting page on facebook (same profile name) where reviews can be seen on the page. Please contact me for any further details you may require.
