I´m a writer with a PhD in philosophy, living in the city-centre of an industrial town in the South-West of Germany. Fortunately, this town is situated near beautiful Heidelberg and its famous old university. I have a lot of cultural interests (theatre, films, history, literature, classical music, languages, travelling around the world...), but to realize my ambitious book projects (historical biographies such as of Goethe, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Luther or Henry VIII.), I need some rest and some inspiration from time to time and some distance to my personal situation at home: a calm and peaceful environment, a beautiful landscape, if possible some wild nature, some animals - things, I do not have at home. As a house sit, I prefer the countryside to big cities, places as quiet and peaceful as possible. Concerning the country, I´m very flexible. Being multilingual (German, English, French, Spanish and some basics of Swedish), I normally will not have any communication problems, wherever I stay.
Living in a big city can be very stressful - the more, if you have (as I had) a noisy environment and noisy neighbours.
The opportunity to stay on a peaceful place for some time of the year, for a couple of days or weeks, is just a wonderful thing for me to get some rest, to read, reflect and write or prepare my new projects.
I love to be in the countryside, and I love pets and animals. I am orderly and reliable, and I like taking responsibility for a house and taking care of nice pets like cats, dogs, birds or whatever. Time and place is basically open and depends on my plannings here. Normally, I can announce my availability a couple of weeks in advance. The destination depends on my financial situation - whether or not I can afford an expensive oversee-flight at the moment.
Yes, I have plenty of "house sitting"-experiences - mostly in the course of personal recommendations (friends of friends of friends who needed someone to care for the dogs and the house during their holidays...). In my student´s days, I cared for a house in Paris and for the parrot "Gaston". Later on, there were two little dogs in an appartment in Seoul/ South-Corea. In 2006, I spent two nice weeks in Ingolstadt/Germany with "Jack" the Jack Russel and years later with "Kookie", the greyhound, in a beautiful wooden house in Bavaria. The house- and pet-owners were always satisfied with my caring, and I loved coming back.
Reliability, love of pets, orderliness and a great interest for new places and people, for new cultural experiences.

Sabine is a reliable and responsible person. She took great care of our dog and helped a lot whenever the dog was not feeling well. She constantly kept us updated and did her best to make our pet feel better. We kept in touch throughout her whole stay, the communication was smooth and easy, always responded to my messages quickly. All in all, I'd say it was a very successful exchange and I can definitely recommend Sabine as a house sitter :)
Sabine stayes in the first half of july in our house and looked after our pets and all our plants in- and outdoor. She was really wonderful, everything was perfect. Our pets and plants were treated carefully and reliable and we could reach her anythime. We would be glad to have Sabine as a house sitter anytime we leave our home for holidays.
Sabine took care of our house and two cats for two weeks in December. She is a good communicator, did a very good job and our cats loved her. Especially since one of them had gotten sick while she was here (which was nothing she could have prevented) and she nursed him with all her heart. Thank you again, Sabine!
