65, Retired Property Manager
One of my passions is travel, which enables me to meet new people and experience different cultures. Being multi-lingual (fluent in English and Portuguese and wishing to expand on my current basic knowledge of Spanish, Italian and French) I am always looking for opportunities to practice my languages.
I love animals and the way they can so readily love unconditionally. Because I travel often I don't have my own pets, so being a house sitter is ideal as it gives me the pleasure and enjoyment of looking after someone else's pets. However, one of the most enjoyable aspects of being a house and pet sitter is to give the owners an opportunity to relax and go away knowing that their homes and much loved pets are well looked after. It gives me great joy to know that others are enjoying their holiday without worry or concern....
I have had experience in looking after properties and pets in Sydney, Blue Mountains, Byron Bay, Lennox Head, Gold Coast and Bali. I have owned several different breeds of dogs, cats and horses. I also have owned my own adjistment property in Mangrove Mountains on the Central Coast where I looked after 25 racehorses and other horses and owned several dogs: 1 x shitzu, 1 rottweiller, 2 cattle dogs, 1 labrador and 3 cats, turkeys, chickens and 2 goats. I also spent 8 months in Bali looking after 2 Bali dogs and 7 cats. I was responsible for their care: feeding them, walking them, taking them to the vet when needed. I also managed their property, cleaners and gardeners while the owners were away in France.
I am friendly, caring, compassionate with high levels of energy. To keep fit I walk everyday and also practice yoga for flexibility and relaxation. As I like to write short stories in my spare time, house sitting is constantly providing me with new experiences and stimulation. One of life's greatest pleasures and most enjoyable moments is to have the company of contented lovely animals, all curled up and snuggled up next to me at the end of the day, after a busy day of playing, walking and running. I am on my own. I am a non-smoker, non-drinker and don't take drugs or pills of any kind. I enjoy a healthy lifestyle and like to keep a clean and happy home.

Marie si e' presa cura della mia pelosetta Chiquita durante la mia recente vacanza durata tre settimane. Ho visto con i miei occhi l'affetto che Marie ha largito su Chiquita dalle foto e video che Marie mi ha mandato constantemente. Ho trovato Chiquita felice e rilassata. Marie ha inoltre lasciato un appartamento pulito e ordinato, il frigorifero pieno di provviste ed il letto fatto per me. Non ho esitazioni a raccomandare Marie per pet sitting o house sitting. Grazie Marie!
Marie took care of my furry Chiquita during my recent three week vacation. I have seen with my own eyes the affection that Marie has bestowed on Chiquita from the photos and videos that Marie has sent me constantly. I found Chiquita happy and relaxed. Marie also left a clean and tidy apartment, the fridge full of supplies and the bed made for me. I do not hesitate to recommend Marie for pet sitting or house sitting. Thanks Marie!
