Professional,Capable,Happy Housesitter

Forties, Educator / Legal Work

Hi guys! This is me.....

*I am a professional housesitter.
* I DO NOT charge a fee.

REFERENCES - all excellent,recent & checkable:
* National Police Clearance
* References from previous housesits x lots
* References from real estate agents - regarding the immaculate presentation of my previously-sold homes.
* Character references
* Photo Album - of animals I have minded so far

* AGREEMENT - I am happy to sign an Agreement

* MY PERSONAL LIFE - I love travellling, meeting wonderful people & making lots of furry friends! This is not a holiday for me, but my dream lifestyle, & I take my housesitting responsibilities very seriously. I was "born to housesit" - I love it!

* I am very independent, capable, honest, reliable, happy, friendly & extremely organised.

* l am non-denominational in religion, but lead a Christian lifestyle, with good family values. I do not smoke or drink, do not have parties. I am vegan, very health-focused, love exercise, eating well & being outdoors in nature. I am home a lot, so can spend lots of time with your animals, maintain property security & attend to all household / gardening chores. I do not go out at night.

* I am minimalist - which means I don't need or want lots of material things. I will close most doors to your home & only use the basic living areas.

* I have always owned my own home & always had pets.I enjoy a "simple" life - much happier with less material things & more quality time spent with family / friends. I love diversity & meeting people from "all walks of life" - especially people from different races, cultures, age groups, religions & lifestyles. I spent many years working in a government department doing legal work & also two years as a part-time cleaner in a high-security Bank. I spent the last 2 years studying.

* ANIMALS - I absolutely ADORE all animals & believe they are a big part of any family - you can be assured that I will treat them very well.
I have lots of experience with "rescue pets" - I have owned my own & cared for lots.I can do grooming, bathing, give medication(including injections), remove ticks, am confident with disabled or elderly pets. I can handle big dogs who pull on the lead. I can walk dogs twice per day - to the park / around the neighbourhood. I have stationwagon, so can put your doggy in my car & take him to the beach or park. I will give all animals lots of company, play, love & attention - whatever they need to keep them happy & sticking to their routine. I carry an RSPCA Pet First Aid Guide, to give immediate first aid to pets if needed.

* I HAVE CARED FOR - dogs, cats, chooks, bees, alpacas, fish in tanks, fish in ponds, worm farms, goats, cows, rabbits, guinea pigs, wild birds, caged birds, geese, ponies, horses, kangaroos, wallabies, ducks

* YOUR HOME - I am very house-proud & keep a spotless home. Your home & surrounds will be treated as my own - with love, care & respect & will be immaculate upon your return. I never wear shoes in the house, never put feet on furniture & always use coasters / tablecloths. I can use both ride-on mowers & regular mowers. I am very security-conscious & always lock windows & doors & can set an alarm. I have cared for lots of pools - just give me instructions for your particular one.

* I CAN DO - whatever you need me to - collect mail, forward important mail to you, take phone messages, be home for tradesmen, put bins out, start car engine so battery doesn't go flat, water plants, gardening, weeding, mow the grass. I will not use your food, car, phone or computer - I have my own. I will not use your microwave or dishwasher - I just don't like them. I rarely use a dryer.

* PRIOR TO YOUR RETURN - I leave a Gift & your first morning's brekkie, as a Thankyou Gift. I can do some grocery shopping if you like.

* COMMUNICATION - I send a daily email/text/photos, so you can see your pets are happy & well cared for. I leave typed / very detailed, typed notes - telling you how the Sit went.

* I would never have guests over without your permission.

* I BRING MY OWN - pillows, pillowcases, rice cooker, blender, kitchen tidy bags, tablecloth, coasters, water filter, household items (dishwashing liquid, dishcloths, handwash, washing powder, toiletries), I just need sheets, towels & blankets please.

* CHILDREN - I have 2 wonderful children - aged 12 & 10, so there would be 3 very capable people to care for your animals. They have their own character references, plus all of my previous homeowners will testify that the kids were no problem at all - but instead gave all animals lots of love & attention. They are extremely well-behaved, mature, very clean & tidy, do not break things,do not run around the house. They are very respectful of other people's property AND ABSOLUTELY LOVE ALL ANIMALS! They are very gentle & kind to all animals & do not play rough or hurt them in any way. They have been brought up as vegan & understand the importance of treating all living beings as equals. And if we meet in person, you will see for yourself how well-behaved they are & how well they get on with your pets. Their photos are attached. They also have their own references.

* BEDDING ARRANGEMENTS - the kids can share a double bed & I can use a single bed. We don't need much space.

Thankyou & look forward to hearing from you soon!

No rating Leanne and her children recently house sat for me for 17 days. Leanne took the time to visit before the sit to become familiar with the house and the dogs, saving me the rush on leaving day. She was very focused on doing a great job. The house was clean and tidy on my return and the dogs had been well cared for. I would highly recommend Leanne and her children to house sit for you.
NARELLE (Burrell Creek NSW, Sep 2017 - 2 weeks 4 days)
No rating Leanne was a perfect housesitter. She was attentive to all our requests and was very punctual. Leanne kept us up to date every few days with how things were going at our home while we were remote and this was very reassuring. I have read many of Leanne's previous sit reviews and find that the comments have all been true in our case. I have found Leanne to be very caring for our property and was most concerned when something went wrong following an electrical supply blackout, now all fixed. I ... MORE
KEN AND JEANETTE (Wauchope NSW, Jul 2020 - 1 week 5 days)
Thankyou Leanne for being an amazing pet carer.You and your kids show a genuine love for animals and go above and beyond to give details of the house and pet care. It gave us the peace of mind to enjoy a holiday knowing our fur family were given care and love in our absence. They were well exercised and had so much company in Leannes time with them. We highly recommend Leanne and her children.
LIBBY (Murrays Beach NSW, Mar 2020 - 12 days)
Can't recommend Leanne enough - a true house-sitting professional. Looked after our property, the gardens and our 2 dogs for a month. The dogs were spoilt with treats and very well loved by Leanne and her 2 children. Such a lovely family, also left us gifts and lunch upon our return. House was immaculate. Thanks Leanne. Hope to use your services again.
DEBBI (Lake Cathie NSW, Dec 2019 - 1 month)
Leanne and her 2 children house sat for me for 2 weeks which I was overseas on a holiday Fortunately for me, it was Leanne and her children housesitting my house, while the horrendous bushfires blew through my home town. Knowing that Leanne was at home majority of the time, I certainly felt at ease knowing she was at home looking after my pets, keeping them safe inside the house, with our air-conditioning on keeping them cool and safe from the smokey air outside. Leanne kept us ... MORE
SHARNAY (Moonee Beach NSW, Nov 2019 - 2 weeks)
Leanne and her two children did a great job of looking after our home and dogs. Our house was well cared for and upon our return found it clean, neat and tidy, They gave our 3 dogs the utmost care, including twice daily walks, lots of time spent with them during the day and generally included them in their daily lives. Very thankful for the attention and care they gave 'our family'. Leanne's communication of how things were going at home was EXCELLENT. We never worried or had concern to ... MORE
CRAIG & JAYNE (Middle Brook NSW, Jun 2019 - 7 & 1/2 weeks)
No rating Leanne and her children housesat for us for a week. They were very loving with our dog and took great care of our home. We highly recommend them as fantastic housesitters. The communication before, during and after the housesit was fabulous.
SYBIL (Port Macquarie NSW, Aug 2017 - 5 days)
No rating We had the opportunity of having Leanne & her two gorgeous children housesit for 10 days recently. Their warm natures ensured that our 11 year old Milly was loved 24/7. Leanne sent daily updates & photos, cared for our home & left us with a welcome home meal package which was so lovely. We would have no hesitation in recommending her & only hope we have the chance of her housesitting again.
