52, Alcohol and Drug Counselor

Hi ... thank you for looking at my profile. I am fortunate to be in a long term house sit at this time and will not be available for house sits now until March 2021.
All the best to you all.

I am a 52yr old, single, female, non-smoker who works from home. I am caring and empathetic, love animals and I am incredibly houseproud and meticulously clean.
I am fit and active and usually walk approx. 5-10km daily.
I have owned a cat previously who , sadly, died a few years ago age 17.
I am confident with dogs, cats and smaller animals and birds. I also once lived in a house full of snakes and 1 Iguana lol. I have limited experience with farm animals but can ride and am confident with horses and cows, sheep and goats, thanks to a dear friend with a farm.
I am looking to house sit while I explore future job options and perhaps putting down some long term roots or moving out of Auckland eventually, which means that I am available for sits outside of Auckland.
I do hope that you will consider having a chat to see how we might come to a mutually beneficial arrangement, you, me and your beloved pets.
I am also able to offer a spring clean service at an extra cost (to be negotiated) for house sits of sufficient duration.

Vanessa is a 10 out of 10 stars house sitter. Our animals, cat, dog and two horses all love her and so do we. Vanessa 'has a way' with animals and people alike. After she left our dog waited outside for hours for her to return and our cat divided herself not quite evenly between being with us and a little bit more with Vanessa. She uses her initiative and good common sense and gets out there doing it. She is meticulously tidy and a very pleasant and easy person to have around. Our place ... MORE

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
