Dog(s), Cat(s), Fish, Rabbit(s), Guinea pig(s) – I would be happy to look after horses, but I would need training as I have only ridden them and done a bit of mucking out rather than owned them.

About this sitter

I am a single, English woman in my 40s, who is very clean and tidy, vegan and a non-smoker.

I am looking for house sitting opportunities that will provide some peace and tranquillity in which to write. I enjoy walking, so love looking after dogs who'll give me a good excuse to get the walking boots on every day, but I'm also a cat lover and very happy to provide lots of cuddles and lap time.

Why they want to house sit

I am keen to visit places that are off the beaten tourist track, and believe that staying in someone's home will enable me to see a different, more authentic, side to the countries and regions I visit.

I am currently working from home, so can be very flexible so long as I have internet access and a phone signal.

Their experience

For most of 2016 I travelled around Spain, house sitting for large chunks of that time, looking after dogs and cats, watering plants and maintaining swimming pools. I have also house-sat in the UK.

I am a home owner and extremely house proud and tidy, so will keep your house very clean.

In addition to house sitting, I have looked after a friend's house in rural France, walked my sister's dogs and regularly looked after my neighbours' cats when they travelled abroad.

What can they bring to the assignment

Mature, responsible and highly organised, I will look after your home and your pets as though they were my own. I understand that it's strange to leave your home and treasured pets in the care of someone you barely know, so whatever the nature of the assignment I will take it seriously, will always go the extra mile and do my utmost to provide all the reassurance you need to enjoy your time away in peace of mind.

Testimonials

A brilliant cat and house sitter and a lovely person

Miranda was a perfect cat and house sitter for us. Warm, kind, conscientious, flexible, proactive and pleasure to interact with. During her 5 month stay, she always kept us updated and responded promptly.to any messages. She kept our house very tidy, our plants watered and our cat Brina well looked after. Miranda even did some errands for us (like posting a package or sorting out our post). During Miranda's stay Brina needed to see the vet three times, as she had been bitten. Miranda took very good care of her to help her recover. Brina ended up adoring Miranda. She was also a hit with our neighbours, who liked her a lot. Miranda truly exceeded our expectorations. She was very accommodating: when our stay abroad continued extending (due to unforeseen circumstances), Miranda was able to accommodate us for far longer than initially planned. Furthermore, she was able to do a very good handover with the next sitter (I was present via a video call). Miranda even mowed our lawn before she left (we did not ask her), which was awesome. We are missing Miranda and wishing her all the best in her future endeavours. We would welcome her back anytime and with open arms - we were very lucky to find her. She definitely went far above and beyond what we expected – an ideal cat and house sitter and a lovely and interesting person. Thank you, Miranda – we truly appreciate your help and hope to see you again. :)

Miranda Floy housesitter in andalucia Sept 2016.

Having Miranda take care of my home and pets last September gave me complete peace of mind for the two weeks she stayed. She's extremely competent on so many levels, was good with the cats, took great care of property (which is secluded) maintained the pool well, and was a pleasure to have had around. She even returned last minute for another week in October. I recommend her very highly.

The perfect person to care for your house and pets.

Miranda came to housesit for us here in Galicia in May 2016. What a delight it was to have her. She is extremely reliable, arriving in plenty time and taking note of everything regarding the house, the pets and the area. We found Miranda to be a very independent lady and we very quickly felt at ease in her company and confident to leave our German Shepherd, Sebastian and our two moggies, Ralph and Thomas in her care. They were very sorry to see her leave. Miranda also used our car when we were away in return for taking us to, and collecting us from, the airport which was great for us! She was also extremely friendly and a big hit with all our Spanish neighbours who still ask after her. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Miranda as a house sitter as we had a trouble free and relaxing holiday confident of her capability and caring nature. We returned to three happy and well cared for boys, a freezer full of raspberries which Miranda had picked daily, and a house that was clean and tidy. A perfect experience.
