About this sitter

Reliable, conscientious single woman seeking opportunities to explore areas for possible relocation. Very clean, conscientious, resourceful and adore cats. 2 weeks to a month preferred. Require good neighbors who are considerate and not loud after hours. Love the arts and sciences and enjoy exploring. Would prefer not to to use a car as I'm forced to in Miami, but am flexible. If the area is remote and one is available, I am an excellent driver on either side and have my international license. Biking is great to get around for me. I prefer Eastern Europe but am willing to explore other areas. Photos are also important for me.

Why they want to house sit

Need to immerse myself as a resident to get a good feel of the area and its people for potential relocation. Due to my hectic lifestyle I no longer keep pets as
I can't share any quality time with them and that's just wrong to me. But I really miss giving love to purring cats and this is a big plus for me as a sitter. Some peace to write and work on creative projects without the phone constantly ringing would be ideal. Wifi is important. An area rich in culture is preferred, that can be remote or in the city center. With enough time in advance, international travel is not a problem. I'm a bit conversational Spanish, French and Japanese, but not fluent in and would love to improve.

Their experience

I have had chow chow, an Abyssinian, 2 stray cats and my last black beauty was Shaolin. He had a special diet and needed medication so I'm familiar and comfortable with any special needs cats. If the dog is loving and not a slobberer, I'm also fond of happy dogs. Chow chows and Bulldogs are my favorite. I'm a mother, a business owner, a director and have ample life experience dealing with emergencies calmly and caring for a home, even demo, construction and refinishing. As a former choreographer, theater director I have a great eye for detail. Chances are your place will look better after I leave.

What can they bring to the assignment

This will be like inviting grandma to watch the kids. Trustworthy, loving and conscientious. For your home I can troubleshoot any issue that will come up as I'm ridiculously resourceful. Being raised in Manhattan I'm super aware so anything that seems out of synch I will provide increased safety for your home and pets. I love building projects so I can help with those types of assignments. My non profit agency, www.HeroesUnite.org built the first organic garden in our city, so I'm well versed in gardening if you need .

Testimonials

Thanks Alice!

Alice enabled my husband and I to take a 10 day vacation to Mexico, caring for our dog, cat, 7 chickens, home, as well as running our busy Airbnb business! Alice flew from her home in Miami to ours in San Diego, arriving the night before we were to leave. After a very fast crash course in the house routine and setting her up to run the Airbnb business, she dropped us at the airport. This very energetic lady didn’t miss a beat! When the Airbnb app didn’t work as expected, she improvised to keep communication running smoothly. Our guests during that time left glowing reviews, as she was friendly and personable to all of them. Our precious pets received great care and an unexpected 7 day visit from our son-in-law and 5 year old grandson was met with grace and caring when they needed temporary emergency housing. She even stepped in as a surrogate grandma to our grandson, playing with him and having him help her with a chicken egg hunt! Alice kept in touch as much as possible, with our cell phone service being sketchy at times. She was able to keep all the balls of our busy home in the air with grace and without losing her cool. We are very grateful to Alice and will not hesitate to contact her next time! Thanks Alice!

A Wonderful House Sitter!

Alice is one of the best house sitters I have ever had, and I've had many. Her communication about my animals was excellent. She is thoughtful and left my house sparkling, even better then how I left it for her. She even left me beautiful flowers. She has great energy and is a true animal lover. Thank you so much Alice, it was a blessing having you stay with my babies!

All The Extra Touches

Alice was is GREAT. Not only did she provide loving care for my cat, she sent me daily messages with photos and videos to stay in touch. I had a couple of small issues at my house and she contacted the property manager and managed the repairs. I returned home to fresh cut red roses, a gift, little "love notes", dark chocolate gelato, and a clean house. Alice was very caring and professional. She even took my senior kitty to the vet to have him checked because she was concerned about his health. And, she speaks Spanish fluently! I can highly recommend Alice Billman for any house sitting and pet care assignments. I was able to relax and enjoy my 3 weeks away from home because Alice is so caring.

The most AMAZING rock star house/pet/cat/chicken/red dragonfly sitter EVER

Alice recently stayed at our home. I CAN NOT say enough great things about her. Honestly, where do I start? She left our house immaculate. In fact, she even organized my tupperware and linen closet. She cleaned my oven. I could go on and on. Most importantly, Alice took excellent care of our three kitties, twelve chickens, numerous gardens and two outdoor fish ponds. She arrived in Austin the day before we left and I knew immediately that I trusted her 100%. She stayed in touch with me while we were gone and I was able to enjoy our time away with zero worries. Alice...COME BACK...please!!
