About this sitter

Please note: if you prefer a couple to house sit your property, my partner will most likely be available too :)

About me: I am a friendly and trustworthy person based in the west of Ireland. I work freelance as a visual artist and creative project manager; therefore I'm flexible as to where I can spend my time. I'm looking for somewhere relatively close to a village or town as I won't be driving - but flexible on whether this is a city, town, village, house with a shop nearby, etc. I am fit and love walking, so walking distance proximity to amenities is also fine. I am kind-natured, responsible and an animal lover :) I also have experience with nervous pets, so can be extra patient and gentle if necessary. I speak English (native), French and Spanish (both intermediate-ish level). I am currently only accepting housesits in Europe, due to travel restrictions; I will be fully vaccinated against Coronavirus and ready for travel from early August.

My partner is also an artist and film-maker; he has a similar love for animals, particularly cats. If you prefer a house-sitting duo I will invite him along :)

Why they want to house sit

I work as a visual artist - which gives me flexibility in my work times/locations. As a freelancer, I have constant admin - applications, project management, etc - so I can happily work from anywhere, between more specific project times. Also, I love to travel! For me, house-sitting is a great way to spend extended time in new places :) Additionally, I love animals - but because I often travel, I don't have pets at the moment - so I'm very happy to be a temporary pet-carer!

Their experience

I worked as a nanny and house-keeper for a lovely family in London, and house-sat for them on several occasions. I am frequently enlisted to look after friends' pets and plants when they are away! I also have hosted and travelled using airbnb and wwoof, so I understand the difference between hotels and real homes. I am a considerate and responsible guest.

What can they bring to the assignment

Reliability, respect for another person's home, animal lover (experience with cats, dogs, fish, chickens and horses), contact/communication as often as necessary for home-owners, peaceful and quiet tenant, amateur but willing gardener, friendly and happy to chat with neighbours, but also enjoy quiet time :)

2 weeks pet sitting in Marseille

Brenda and Fergal came to my place to pet sitting my diabetic cat and taking care of my plants for 2 weeks. They are cat lovers for sure you can trust them to love your precious furry friend as their own while you're away. It was a pleasant sitting even though we had a little bit of stress because the injection for a diabetic cat can be tricky. They have sent me pictures and updates regularly and I came back to a clean and tidy home when they left. What else should we ask for ! Thank you again for taking good care of Maya, I hope you have enjoyed Marseille !
