About this sitter

Hello and thank you for reading
I envision caring for a home whose owners have lovingly created a personal sanctuary and I seek the opportunity to live in diverse environments with the pleasure of giving back in the service of housesitting.

Why they want to house sit

I love to travel and meet new friends both two-legged and four-legged with the ability to live in residential communities and really immerse myself in the culture.

Their experience

I have been invited by many friends and friends of friends over the past 7 years since I have become a home-free woman with wanderlust to house and pet sit. After 8 such experiences, I have decided I really like this lifestyle and so registered with Mind My House! I am happy to provide my experience if needed.

I have known LaBet most of my life and she is an amazing person. She has an awesome work ethic and is the best kind of leader because she leads by example. She is an expert in most forms of exercise and has led hundreds, if not thousands, of people to a healthier lifestyle through her infectious teaching. She has a generosity of spirit shown through her willingness to share her time and knowledge with others and wins their cooperation through her energy, honesty, and determination. LaBet's heart was changed forever through the love and adoration of her faithful lab Lila and they remained devoted to each other for 14 years until Lila's death a few months ago. This position would be perfect for her because the two things she loves most (besides her two grown daughters) are exploring new places and animals! She has had a good deal of experience house/pet sitting but mostly for friends and family; and since Lila is no longer by her side, she is ready to spread her wings and fly to new places. I hope LaBet will be given great consideration because she would be a wonderful asset to you to take care of your home and your loving pets.

Hello, I have known LaBet for 28 years. She is a strong , caring and compassionate person who always wants to help people . One of her favorite things to do is to engage with their pets and offer assistance where needed caring for the pet. I would highly recommend her to anyone with a home / pet to attend to.

What can they bring to the assignment

I am a 71year old, responsible, physically active, past homeowner with pets and offer my experience to keep a quiet, tidy, nurtured, pet adoring home in your absence. There will be no surprises when you return other than you will find everything even cleaner than when you left!

Testimonials

Wonderful Housesitter and Human

LaBet came through for us when we were struggling to find a housesitter for a long-awaited trip to Patagonia that happened to fall over Thanksgiving. She was completely reliable in her communication from start to finish, and clearly had enough confidence and experience to handle our 2 energetic pups solo for nearly 3 weeks (something I'm not even sure I could do!) She was respectful of, and attentive to all of our routines and home care, and the pups and house were in great shape when we returned. We're so glad to have connected with LaBet, and envious of her semi-nomadic, adventurous lifestyle.

LaBet was an ideal house sitter- confident, considerate, tidy, organised and a truly amazing person. I am so pleased to have met her, and cannot recommend her highly enough.

LaBet came to mind our house and pets while we were away visiting family. This was my first time using MindMyHouse. I was a little nervous because we don't often leave our pets for such a long time. LaBet was an absolute dream! She agreed to meet with me on Zoom to make sure we are the right fit for each other, before planning her trip to Ireland. I have dogs, cats, chickens, and a big old house, and they were in safe hands. The dogs took to her immediately. My old cat became quite unwell while I was away and LaBet took great care of her, while keeping me updated on how she was doing. When I returned the house was in perfect shape and my pets were sad to see her go! I would definitely welcome her back into our home.
