Pet Lover & Experienced Sitter

56, Business Owner - Online Retail

Hi, an experienced full-time house sitter and caring pet lover with excellent references, I am honoured to have repeat sits as owners comment that their pets are happy and relaxed when they return. As I work from home on my laptop, I can be there to give them all the love, cuddles and attention they need and give you peace of mind knowing someone is on hand for the care and security of your property.

As a teacher, I had mice and freshwater fish in the classroom and grew up with cats, kittens, freshwater fish, a sulphur crested cockatoo, budgies, finches, bantam hens, chickens and a house bunny rabbit as pets. As a house and pet sitter, I have cared for domestic short hair, domestic long hair and special breed cats, including Balinese, Bengal, Blue Burmese, Burmese, Calico, Himalayan, Ragdoll x Burmese, Russian Blue, Siamese and Tonkinese; low to medium energy dogs including Alsation, Australian Kelpie, Australian Silky Terrier x Maltese, Bichon Frise, Bichon Frise x Poodle, Border Collie, Cattle Dog, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Cavoodle, Chihuahua, Cobber, Cocker Spaniel, Corgi, German Shepard, Jack Russell, Jug (Jack Russell x Pug), Kelpie, Labrador, Maltese x Pomeranian, Maltese x Poodle, Mini Foxy, Mixed Breed, Fox Terrier, Labradoodle, Pomeranian, Pugalier (Pug x Cavalier), Schnauzer, Schnoodle, Spoodle, Staffordshire Bull Terrier x Border Collie, Sydney Silky Terrier x Maltese, Terrier and whippet; budgies, chickens, ducks, geese, cockatiels and Lop, Mini Lop and Mini Rex rabbits.

I am comfortable administering medication as I have taken care of an older dog that needed tablets for arthritis, and both cats and a mini Rex rabbit who needed daily tablets. I understand some pets need special care during thunder storms and fireworks and am happy to sit with them and reassure them. If your pet is used to sleeping in the room with you, this is fine too.

Knowing how much pets are missed, I am happy to email, Skype or WhatsApp you regular pics and anecdotes of your pet to keep in touch and see how they are doing.

I have my own transport and am a responsible, single, quiet, clean and tidy non-smoker who is reliable and trustworthy.

I also take care of homes with no pets in residence. Having someone on hand to bring in the mail, sign for deliveries, put the bins out and in, turn the lights on at night and having a vehicle coming and going all increase the security of your home while you are away. I can notify you if anything occurs such as leaks or fallen branches in storms, pool pumps malfunctioning or Development Application (DA) notices appearing just after you have left on a long holiday.

Having owned my own investment unit in a managed complex, I understand what it is like to leave your property in the care of others and will respect your privacy and requests.

Growing up in a family of keen gardeners, I am confident and happy tending a garden and maintaining a pool.

With experience with cleaners, couriers, electricians, gardeners, plumbers, pool cleaners and vets, I am able to handle any needs and I have a 'can do' attitude if anything should arise.

I have excellent Reviews from home owners from past and regular house sits and am happy to use the Aussie House Sitters' House Sitting Agreement. I have a National Police Check Certificate for your added peace of mind.

I will take care of your property and pets as if they were my own and ensure you return to a clean and tidy home and happy, relaxed pets.

If it is easier, I am happy to chat with you by phone or WhatsApp or meet with you on Skype.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
Warm Regards,

Mandy is the most professional house sitter we have used. Her communication is outstanding, she is reliable and punctual and she looks after our home and pet as if they were her own. I highly recommend Mandy and if you are lucky enough to secure her you will be delighted.
SHARON (East Killara NSW, May 2019 - 6 days)
Thank you so much Sharon, I am grateful to have found you too! It has been a pleasure to take care of your home and gorgeous little pet and I am looking forward to sitting for you again soon. Thanks, Mandy
From our first meeting we felt comfortable and knew that Mandy would be the perfect sitter for our house and dog. They took great care of both and after our few days away we came home to a happy dog and well looked after home. Kuro will miss her. We have no hesitation recommending Mandy for a house sit and will definitely have her back when we go away next.
NICOLE (Kilaben Bay NSW, Jun 2021 - 4 days)
Mandy was just brilliant! Our cat Sasha bonded with her immediately. Whilst we were away Mandy corresponded with us via text & photos in just the right amount to let us know all was well at home. It made for a very relaxed holiday knowing that our cat was happy. Mandy is very capable, thoughtful & caring & we were confident that any unexpected crisis at home would be dealt with, We came home to a lovely clean house & a contented cat who, this time, did not punish us for having left her! I ... MORE
MARIE (Mollymook Beach NSW, May 2021 - 2 weeks)
Even before we met Mandy we had a good feeling that she would get on well with our baby boy Hugo the cat. Mandy was always easy to communicate with and listened carefully during our short handover. She also gave Hugo space and allowed him to get to know her on his terms, very important. When we got home the house was immaculate and the garden was happy and healthy. Hugo and the fishies were also happy and healthy. Thanks to Mandy we had a great holiday. We highly recommend Mandy and would ... MORE
SHARON & COLIN (Denman NSW, Apr 2021 - 1 week)
Always feel so lucky to get Mandy to house sit for us ...especially knowing that our beloved mini zoo of pets will barely notice we are away with Mandy there to love & care for them whilst we holiday ...Mandy is an angel ...
SANDRA (Drummoyne NSW, Apr 2021 - 4 days - 1 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
I highly recommend Mandy for a housesit, she was really nice to deal with, i had messages throughout the entire time i was away, photos & videos which kept my mind as ease. Hendrix is a very shy boy & does not come out to anyone, he was out & around the apartment which is rare, he must have loved Mandy's nice calm energy, my home was exactly how i left it, Will 100% have Mandy back again, thanks again for looking after my boy
KYLIE (Maroubra NSW, Apr 2021 - 5 days)
We could not be happier with Mandy as a house sitter. Taxi our dog is also very happy. Regular updates and cute videos of the fun they were having and a perfect house on our return. We will use Mandy again and again - it really made for guilt free travel knowing our fur baby was in such good hands.
OLLIE (Mollymook Beach NSW, Feb 2021 - 4 weeks)
Excellent house sitter! Very thorough and considerate, which we really appreciated. Mandy took care to fully understand our pets needs and let us know how everyone was getting on each day which gave us peace of mind whilst we were away. I would totally recommend Mandy to others who appreciate good communication, care and attention to detail.
RACHEL (Frenchs Forest NSW, Jan 2021 - 3 days)
Mandy was incredibly in tune with our little Odie (cockatiel) needs.In fact we feel he fell in love with her with those love sick eyes we notice in photos she sent to us on his morning activities.They developed a very close friendship and we felt totally able to enjoy our break knowing all was perfect back home. On our return every thing was as we left it spick and span. Mandy was patient and very gentle and responsive to all of Odies needs. We hope to have her back for future sits. ... MORE
ESTELLE (Cambewarra Village NSW, Jan 2021 - 1 week 6 days)
Mandy was fabulous and Chadwick adored her! Mandy was great at communicating and sending us pics. Our house was immaculate, the plants were healthy and Chadwick was very happy and chilled when we got home. I would highly recommend Mandy as she has a lovely, warm personality and Chadwick warmed to her straight away. Thank you Mandy!
ANGELA (Gladesville NSW, Dec 2020 - 1 week 5 days)
No rating Thank you so much Mandy for looking after our fur babies. They adored you and felt instantly comfortable around you, as you were so calm and nurturing towards them. Thank you for giving Misty a tablet each night without a problem - as that allowed us to really relax and enjoy our holiday! The flat was spotless when we returned, having had a full clean and washed sheets. So nice to come back to after a long journey. You were so reliable and sent us photos each day of our babies! So lovely ... MORE
SAMANTHA (Bellevue Hill NSW, Sep 2020 - 12 Days)
What a wonderful housesitter. Mandy treated our house, pets and surroundings with excellent care, probably better than we treat them. Mandy is such a responsible and extremely trusted sitter we will continue to use her in the future.
GREGORY (North Willoughby NSW, Jun 2020 - 1 week 1 day)
We love having Mandy come to stay if we are away. We can go away and relax knowing that our dogs and our house are being cared for as we would ourselves. When Mandy has been we come home to a beautiful clean and tidy house and two very happy dogs. Thanks Mandy. I would recommend Mandy to anyone.
SUSAN (Kellyville NSW, Jun 2020 - 3 days - 1 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
Mandy did a wonderful job caring for our animals and house. Her communication was fantastic, always replying promptly and keeping us updated regularly while we were away. I would highly recommend her for future house sits.
HELEN (Terrigal NSW, Jan 2020 - 1 week 3 days)
We were so lucky to have Mandy house sit for us over the Christmas/New Year break. She is a very experienced sitter and our little cavoodle Amber adored her. I felt very confident leaving Amber and our house in Mandy's very capable hands. During our absence, Mandy kept us up to date with daily photos of Amber which was lovely. Apart from a very happy pet, our house was immaculate and plants were all alive on our return! I highly recommend Mandy as a house sitter. We will definitely be ... MORE
CATRIONA (Beacon Hill NSW, Dec 2019 - 4 weeks)
I was very happy with Mandy. My dogs loved her, she sent photos of my babies so I knew they were happy. Mandy and I chatted for a couple of hours when I returned. She was lovely. Would feel very happy to leave my home and babies with Mandy.
LESLEY (Dural NSW, Nov 2019 - 3 days)
We were very happy with Mandy farmsitting for us. Our house, gardens and animals were well cared for, and we appreciated receiving photos of our 2 dogs. We would be pleased to have Mandy sit for us again
JAN (Conjola NSW, Jul 2019 - 10 days)
I fortuitously discovered Aussie House Sitters after repeatedly denying myself a holiday away from my two best friends. Mandy was all that i thought didn't exist in home sitting and caring for my puppies. Updates by the the day were very welcomed and reassuring. Mandy took care of my property and left it sparkling clean thanks Mandy
BOB (Balgowlah NSW, May 2019 - 1 week 4 days)
Thank you Bob, it was a pleasure to take care of your beautiful home and puppies and I am looking forward to our next house sit. Thanks Bob.
We are SO grateful to have had Mandy come and take care of our two rambunctious little kittens whilst we were on a weekend trip. She took incredible care of them and kept us updated as to how they were doing, and by the time she left, I think the cats wanted to keep her! Thank you for doing any amazing job, Mandy - I would recommend you to anyone!
ANA (Voyager point NSW, May 2019 - 2 days)
Mandy was such a lovely sitter and looked after both our house and Tawnie very well. Would love for Mandy to come back again for future trips.
KATE (Marrickville NSW, May 2019 - 5 days)
Mandy was a fantastic house sitter and bunny minder. We could tell from the start that she was definitely an "animal person" with her warm and friendly nature. She made sure our house bunny trusted (and in the end loved!) her. The house was nice and tidy and Mandy was a delight to meet and get to know. I would not hesitate recommending Mandy as a house sitter and will be definitely be calling on her again when we next go away.
YOLANDA (Balgo NSW, Mar 2019 - 1 week)
Mandy was an absolute pleasure to deal with and kept in contact with us really well. She took the most adorable pictures of our fur baby kitty cats and seeing them look so happy and relaxed was such a relief for us. It was a real pleasure to come home to such a clean house also, and we would highly recommend Mandy for any house sits!
DANIELLE (Canterbury NSW, Mar 2019 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating Awesome lady.. Easily coped with geriatric twice a day medicated vomiting cat and strange little cat... Sent updates and gorgeous photos. None of the pot plants died!
GAYE (Balgowlah NSW, Dec 2018 - 26 days)
Mandy has been in our home a number of times and is coming again. She is excellent in every way and our two mini dachshunds love her. She takes great care of everything as if it were her own and we come home to two well cared for and happy pets and a very clean and tidy home. Highly recommended.
SUZANNE (Mosman NSW, Oct 2018 - 3 weeks)
Couldn't have asked for a better person to look after our two fur babies! Mandy was so easy to arrange everything with. Great communication from the start. We met beforehand which was great. Mandy was very flexible. Lenny & Beau took to her straightaway which was great. Mandy has a very relaxed & calm nature which was great to see, means our dogs would also be relaxed at home with her. She stayed in constant contact with us when we were away. It also made me feel relaxed on holidays ... MORE
MARIE (Cabarita NSW, Sep 2018)
We can't recommend Mandy highly enough. She asked all the right questions when we first met, and established an immediate rapport with our cats Lulu and Humphrey. (I'm convinced they missed her when she went as they kept looking in the room Mandy occupied). We stayed in touch easily while away and received great little updates as to our furry kids' latest exploits. I thought we left he house clean for her, but I believe it was cleaner when we got home! We have every confidence in Mandy's ... MORE
WENDY AND GREG (West Pennant Hills NSW, Jun 2018)
No rating Mandy did an absolutely wonderful job looking after our house, our two dogs (our girls), our three cats, our chooks as well as a watching eye on our ponies. Her rapport with the animals was immediate and genuine and we can't thank her enough. Knowing that they were in such good hands really made a difference to us being able to enjoy our short stay away. Mandy fitted in well to our routine and was meticulous in everything she did. We can only recommend her very highly. What's more, she is a ... MORE
IAN AND JAN (Grabben Gullen NSW, Jun 2018 - 6 days)
No rating Having Mandy sit our house, milly and Prince was a great decision. Our pets were so calm and happy when we arrived home, Mandy left our home in amazing condition. Was lovely and clean when we got home. I would highly recommend Mandy and will call upon her for future housesits.
KELLIE (Wetherill Park NSW, Jun 2018 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating We are so happy to have Mandy look after our menagerie of pets. Especially our three kelpies who love her cuddles, games & company. Mandy keeps us updated throughout our holidays with photos and messages. Her caring, warm nature is our blessing. Everything is always kept neat and tidy for our return. We always feel well assured our home and pets are happy and safe while we are away. Mandy is now part of our family. xx
ANNETTE (Milton NSW, May 2018)
No rating Mandy is a very experienced and competent house sitter. She was happy to become Henry's best friend for a few weeks and we had no worries while we were away as Mandy kept us up to date with his daily antics. Mandy also cared for the chooks, garden and home. It was a pleasure to meet Mandy and we would recommend her for any house sitting jobs and would definitely like to have her back again.

TIM (Turramurra NSW, Dec 2017)
No rating You couldn't ask for a more trustworthy + caring house/pet sitter than Mandy! Her warm + gentle presence instantly had our animals at ease. With Mandy's daily updates + photos of our pets I could rest assured they were being very well looked after, if not loved! We returned to a clean + tidy home + healthy, happy animals. We would happily have Mandy back anytime, as would our pets! I highly recommend her to anyone wishing for an absolutely stress free getaway. Thank you Mandy for being so ... MORE
RACHEL (Exeter NSW, Dec 2017 - 6 days)
No rating We couldn't speak more highly of Mandy! Our little Rafi is our whole world and her and Mandy clicked instantly. We were always updated with lots of photos of our little girl and how she was going. Mandy is incredibly professional and attentive in all areas (even having to deal with some rogue tree loppers turning up whilst we were away!). Thanks again Mandy we really appreciate everything you have done for us!
ALICIA (Newport NSW, Aug 2017)
No rating We are so glad that Mandy agreed to house sit for us and take care of our two guinea pigs, two fish and our house & garden while we were away. Mandy is an experienced house sitter and made us feel at ease when we met up prior to departure. She kept us incredibly well informed while we were away, including sending regular updates, photos and even videos of our guinea pigs. The house was well cared for and we even arrived home to fresh eggs and milk, which was very thoughtful. We recommend Mandy ... MORE
MICHELLE (Concord West NSW, Jun 2017)

HUGH (Earlwood NSW, Mar 2017 - 2 weeks 2 days)
No rating I have to admit that I had my trepidations before meeting Mandy and also because it was my first time using a housesitter but all doubts went away the first time I met Mandy. Mandy was exceptional, going above and beyond what was needed of her. We were away for 7 weeks and received regular updates with pictures regarding the general upkeep of the house and everything looked wonderful. Mandy also had to deal with our car refusing to start a few times and with our regular gardener - all ... MORE
VIVIEN (Erskine Park NSW, Jan 2017 - 1 month 3 weeks)
No rating This was our first foray into house-sitting and Mandy was exceptional in this role. She helped me to find material to assist in creating the background information files on the house and our cat, and was easy to communicate with. While we were away we received updates on Misty's day and pictures of her, which our family greatly appreciated. On arriving home, my plants never looked greener and the house was very neat and tidy. I hope she is available when we next travel...Misty will look forward ... MORE
KIM (Malabar NSW, Dec 2016)
No rating Mandy was a perfect house and pet sitter when we travelled for a month. Fudge, our 14 year old dog loved Mandy and Mandy took exceptionally good care of her. Mandy was also an excellent house sitter and sent us photos of all our mail and kept us up to date with regular photos of Fudge. All our neighbours and friends who came in contact with Mandy loved her and all agreed that she was an exceptional house minder and a lovely person. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
NARELLE (Yowie Bay NSW, Oct 2016)
No rating Mandy was every bit as wonderful as her profile suggests.. very caring of our pets and respectful of our home we have already booked her to sit for us again.
ADAMS FAMILY (Drummoyne NSW, Oct 2016 - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
No rating Wow! We could not have wished for a better house sitter than Mandy. She cared for our dog, Olive, as if she were her own and our house was immaculate when we returned from our holiday. Mandy was excellent in providing us with updates about things to do with the house and Olive while we were away. She even let us know about any mail that looked important! She was thorough in every aspect of looking after both Olive and the house and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a trustworthy ... MORE
JENNIFER (Freshwater NSW, Jun 2016)
No rating Mandy has cared for our Burmese cat Missy on two occasions, most recently in Burradoo for a four week period. I highly recommend Mandy to anyone wanting a wonderful house sitter - she has an obvious love for animals and her gentle, calm and very capable manner puts any qualms to rest immediately. Mandy is wonderful, trustworthy, tidy and courteous who absolutely adored Missy. On returning she looked fitter and healthier than ever. (In fact, I believe she quite missed Mandy's attentions since ... MORE
KATE (Boronia Park NSW, May 2016)
No rating Mandy did a wonderful job of allowing us to go away for over two weeks knowing our home and two dogs were being cared for.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Mandy to anyone who needs a great sitter.
SUSAN (Kellyville NSW, Apr 2016 - 2 weeks 4 days - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
No rating From the very beginning Mandy was so friendly and easy to deal with. Mandy was an excellent house sitter who we found to be absolutely perfect for our home and our pets. Minty our very precious dog loved their very regular walks and especially the company of Mandy throughout the whole the stay. Our house was clean and tidy when we returned, just perfect. While we were away Mandy kept us up to date with regular photos of our happy pets. We look forward to having Mandy house sit again and ... MORE
REBECCA (Melrose Park NSW, Mar 2016)

ALLISON (Harrington Park NSW, Mar 2016)
No rating Mandy is such a great housesitter I couldn't ask for a better one. She's very kind and easy to talk to and most of all my dog loves her. She always sent me updates of what's happening around the house and about what my dog had been up to, also sending me pictures that I always looking forward to receive, and making sure that my dog got the treatment he needed when he was sick. My family and relatives also singing her praises after seeing the condition of my house that is evidently cleaner than ... MORE
VERA (St Helens Park NSW, Jan 2016)
No rating Mandy was such a wonderful caring house sitter. She took the time to go over all the instructions carefully to understand everything that needed to be taken care of. The animals totally loved her. As she works from home they got a lot of attention too. She left the house clean and tidy. Was everything we needed in a house sitter. We'd have her back in a heartbeat.
