I am a fit and active, non smoking, single lady in my early 60s who retired a few years ago after working for 38 years as a high school English teacher. Since then, I have travelled extensively and worked as a casual teacher. I have previously owned 4 houses in Sydney and a holiday house on the NSW south coast. Four years ago I sold my Bondi home to live in my holiday house. However, I have now decided to return to Sydney and to would love the opportunity to do some house sitting while I am waiting to purchase a property. I have always taken great pride in decorating and caring for my home, as is evident in the attached photos of my most recent house.
What I have to offer:
Responsibility, honesty, and reliability - my long and successful career as a teacher and Head Teacher, are evidence of my reliability and sense of responsibility. A clear Police Check dated 19 September 2016 is attached.
Excellent housekeeping skills - people often compliment me on the tidiness and cleanliness of my home and my well kept gardens.
Genuine love of animals - for most of my life I have had a pet cat or dog (and sometimes both!). Our pets have always been greatly loved and treated as members of the family. I have bonded quickly with each of the pets I have minded when house sitting, given them lots of attention and love and have been very sad to leave them!
Extensive house sitting experience - I have done 2 house sits in Sydney, each for approximately 4 weeks, and 5 sits of 1- 2 weeks each in Melbourne. All of the owners were extremely happy with the way I cared for their home and pet, gave me very positive references and invited me to house sit again for them. I am sure I would be a great housesitter for you.
