There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
Hello, I'm a mature retired woman and own my own home in a country town. I love the town and its people and am an active volunteer in the community here in Nth Queensland. During our winter tourist season I run a small shop to raise money for our local childcare centre.
Housesitting for others and their pets during the summer months in the southern states allows me to enjoy the summer weather down there and I miss out on some of the rain and humidity during our wet season at home.
Usually I head off home in April to make the most of weather over the winter months, and try to get my own garden back into some sort of order.
I enjoy my garden and looking after others too, especially a beautiful one in Canberra that I return to each year, sometimes twice a year!!
During the past few years I,ve cared for a lovely little Yorkshire terrier, a cute staffy , a special chocky lab and a beautiful little blind dog and other dogs as well as a cute tortoise called George and birds, fish etc. It must be working as I keep getting invited back to look after them, some five and six times.
I,m happy to take care of your dogs, fish, birds, rabbits and chickens.
I neither smoke or drink and treat everyone,s homes and treasures with a great deal of respect. I,m a very responsible lady as well as being clean and tidy.
Please feel free to call if you think I may be a suitable sitter for you. References, thank you letters and a Police clearance are available if you require them.
