55, Executive Assistant

Fifty five year old woman who has owned homes therefore is aware of the responsibilities; and has applied this expertise when maintaining many owners' beautiful homes in a housesitting capacity. I have most recently been based in the Woburn, Eastbourne and Seatoun areas in the Wellington region but am happy to travel outside of the Wellington region. Having owned elderly pets; I am familiar with the management of elderly pet ailments. Am very good with animals; very patient, gentle and extremely attentive. Have cared for burmese, tortoiseshell, siamese cats; to name a few. Have cared for numerous dog breeds including; german shepherd, border collies, boxers, labradors, golden retrievers, shetland terriers and many other cross and smaller pedigree dog breeds. I am triple vaccinated and a non smoker. I am a Wellingtonian and therefore able to meet owner prior to confirmation of house sit.

Raelyn was a fantastic house sitter.She was proactive when our cat required vet attention, the house was left as she found it (if not better).I will certainley ask her again if we go away for a prolonged period.

Raelyn was a joy to have as a house sitter. We were very grateful for the attention that she gave to our cat, and she kept the house beautifully. I highly recommend her.

Raelyn is a unique treasure and came to our aid at a moments notice and looked after our home and Molly our cat for a long weekend. She took excellent care of both and we are delighted that we found her, highly recommended.

This is the second time Raelyn has looked after our home and cat. She did a great job with making sure my plants survived, and our cat was happy, healthy and relaxed when we returned. The house was spotless. I will certainly be asking Raelyn to house and cat sit again.

We had a very easy house sitter, met Raelyn a couple of days before hand and immediately felt at ease. Very happy

I would highly recommend Raelyn our house/pet sitter. Excellent communication from the start and during the time we were away. After our week away we returned home to find one very happy spoilt dog and a very clean and tidy house. Thanks Raelyn!
