Hey Everyone

I'm Sharon Luxford, a corporate professional who is also a professional house and pet sitter.

I have been blessed with many new and rebooking clients and have confirmed bookings throughout 2020 and into 2021.

COVID-19: I currently booked until 1 July 2020 but if my clients can't travel overseas, I will be looking for local bookings for April, May and June. Stay tuned for further updates...

So a bit a out me...

I have house, dog and cat sat for friends and friends of friends over many years, deciding to 'turn pro' in March 2018. I rented a garage, set it up as a walk in wardrobe and am fully embracing and completely loving the gypsy lifestyle that is house and pet sitting in Sydney.

For me, house sitting is a two way relationship...well three or four when you include the pets ;-)

I believe it's important that everyone meets and establishes a relationship before the house sit commences. There needs to be a match...for everyone. The house owner, the house sitter and your furry, finned or feathered babies.

I work in the Sydney CBD as a Project Change Manager Monday to Friday and sometimes work from home one day a week. I also have my own LinkedIn Profile Writing, Keynote Speaking and Executive Coaching side hustle, called 'Frock Up & Rock Up'.

I am a non-smoker and have my own car. Wifi and off street or under cover parking (where possible) are always welcome ;-)

In my free time, I like to hang out with the fur babies I'm looking after, at art galleries, the theatre and cinema, op shopping and enjoying dining experiences in new and interesting locations around the Sydney Metropolitan Area, that my house sitting gigs take me.

I would love to be of service to you and your friends or family, if you are planning any travel and would like your home and/or pets lovingly cared for while you are away.

I have a portfolio of client recommendations and a current Police Check.

I have travelled extensively using Airbnb and have often stayed in host's homes while they were away and have 50+ positive reviews as an Airbnb guest.

You can also view several client recommendations on my house and petsitting Facebook page, it's called Sydney House and Pet Sitting Services.

Looking forward to meeting you and your beloved pets.

This was our first experience using a house sitter and we could not have been more happy with Sharon. She sent us regular updates with photos of our cats and was very easy to communicate with. She left the place cleaner than she found it. Highly recommended!! We only arrived back home this morning and have already booked her for our next holiday.

Sharon stayed at our one bed apartment for just over two weeks whilst we were on holiday. Sharon took great care of our large collection of plants, and most were in better condition than when we left. Our cat Cecil was very happy with the care that he received whilst we were away, Sharon kept us updated throughout our trip with messages and pics of Cecil. We would highly recommend Sharon for future bookings and we have already locked in a future date for another house sit.

We highly recommended Sharon. She was amazing! It took no time at all for Sharon to have our GSP, Nelson, under control and eating out of her hand, and for us to feel happy that we were leaving our boy in good hands. While we were away it was particularly reassuring to get photos of Nelson and Sharon out and about and relaxing together at home as the days went by. We came home to a relaxed and happy dog and a spotless house.

I recently went away for 4 weeks and left my cat - Marvin - my fish, and my flat in the care of Sharon. Not only was everyone and everything well looked after, Sharon sent me photos almost every day of how she and Marvin were getting along, and from what I could see he wasn't missing me at all! I will definitely be calling on Sharon next time I want to go anywhere, and I have no hesitation in recommending her services as a cat, fish and flat sitter! Five stars!

We had a last -minute need for a house- sitter over Christmas and Sharon was a perfect match! Sharon responded quickly to our add and was a regular and informative communicator throughout the process, staying in touch by text and sending us updates with pics of the kitties while we were away. She came around to meet us and the kitties before we agreed on the house sit so that everyone was comfortable with the arrangement. She was personable and friendly. Sharon is a professional house sitter with lots of experience, so we felt confident that she would do a great job. Sharon did indeed do a great job of looking after our kitties and left the house immaculate. We would absolutely use her services again and have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone out there looking for reliable, organised, professional house-sitter. Carol Saunders Rozelle

Sharon looked after our home and beloved Peppa while we were travelling for three weeks in September/October 2015. We have had a house sitters before and felt very happy when we met Sharon, that she would care for both our home and dog during our trip. Sharon is very friendly and professional in her approach and genuinely cares for the welfare of the animals in her care. We received regular photos and messages and really enjoyed seeing our Peppa happy at home and enjoying Sharon's company. We arrived home to a happy and healthy dog and a very clean house. We thoroughly recommend Sharon as a house sitter and will be booking her for future house sits when we travel. Peter & Julie Roebig
