My name is Lara-May and I am here to help you.

I am a single, responsible, and reliable 50 year old lady available to look after your home and pets whilst you go away.

I will look after your home the way you would. I am a homeowner myself, so I do understand how important it is to you that your home is looked after with great care.

With in-depth experience house sitting in a variety of homes in Australia and New Zealand, I enjoy the opportunity it gives me to explore the city I am in and activities, parks, beaches that are nearby.

I am in Sydney for two reasons: one for work and to the answer the question of whether I should sell up in New Zealand and buy in the Sydney suburbs.

My house is in a country town called Waiuku. I set it up to reflect my interests such as growing a small organic orchard and vegetables. Waiuku is a wonderful town to live in but as Auckland city crept closer, the logistics and cost (time and money) trying to travel on our roads to get to work in the city became too troublesome.

My vocations are found within the television industry. I worked as a television camera women for a few years in Frenchs Forest. Currently I am working casually in Macquarie Park for a television company, as well as usher and customer service work for an agency which places me all around Sydney for small projects.

As a volunteer for the Sydney Heritage Fleet. I sail the barque 'James Craig' as well as guiding visitors, training new crew, and overseeing children on sleepovers from Scouts or local schools.

You will find that you can trust me inside your home and that your pet (s) will be well looked after. I am clean and reliable. I don't go poking my nose around in other people's business. I like peace and quiet and my own company.

If there are chores to be done, I will do them. If I see something that should be done, I do them. For example, sweeping your patio, cleaning a dirty window, and other cleaning tasks. Your plants won't die because I know how to care for them. This year I was invited to return to a couple of homes a number of times. For one couple I was able to also help an elderly parent whose home needed cleaning each week.

I have grown up with pets. My cats Puss and Kitty lived until 20 years old and were rather spoilt. I love playing and cuddling our fur babies, and be rest assured, yours will be treated lovingly as if my own. I will maintain your patterns of normal activities and care for your pets. For example, I know many cats I have looked after like the water tap turned on for them to drink from rather than their strategically placed water bowl next to the tap!

I am available for any length of house sitting term and can provide both personal and professional references, as well as a police clearance. I will take excellent care of your property.

Please message me at any time to discuss your needs.
