About this sitter

Hello! I am 49 years old, well educated, fit and healthy (Forrest Yoga teacher) and myofascial energetic release therapist.. I love being in quiet, and relaxed areas around the world but also enjoy the city life. I have a secure monthly income and am looking for places to stay where i can explore and relax as well.
I adore animals as they provide great company. I am known to have a sincere, kind and friendly demeanour with good energy that people and animals quickly pick up on.
I am open to all kinds of opportunities regarding house sitting. For me it is important that you the owners feel safe with your choice of me and that a good connection is made between us. I am taking on a huge responsibility by looking after your house and pets so I need to know that I can talk to you openly and honestly.

Why they want to house sit

I Love travelling and exploring new areas and house sitting is the perfect way to do this and an added plus is that I get to have company in the form of animals.

Their experience

Yes! House sitting and cat sitting in the UK for 4 weeks. 7 weeks in Ibiza for 1 super active dog and 3 cuddly cats. 2 dogs for 1 week in Malaga. One cat for 3 weeks in malaga, chickens, ducks, dogs and cats in Scotland and 2 months in Bali for 3 rescue dogs and 5 cats, fish and a tortoise! And 2 cats in Buenos Aires. As well as looking after 3 lion cubs for 6 months in Somalia.
In addition I have rented my own house out during the summer months in Norway - so I know how important it is to choose the right person.
My attached references are from working in Asia and Africa - my current work references are in Norwegian and are thereby not of great help!

What can they bring to the assignment

Being an honest, responsible and caring person I can ensure that the owners will feel safe that their property will be greatly looked after and that their pets will be just as happy! I will treat the house just as my own home of which I have spent many years maintaining. I personally own a wooden house in Southern Norway from 1871.
Regarding pets I have grown up with dogs and cats as well as being responsible for looking after the neighbours horses when they were away.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Absolutely Brilliant!

Sabine was our first experience of using a house sitter & naturally we were a little apprehensive about leaving our pets & house with a complete stranger! Sabine arrived the evening before we left & instantly made us feel at ease. During our week away she kept us updated with pictures & messages showing our dog & cat were content & everything was in order with the house etc. On our return the house was spotlessly clean & the animals relaxed & happy so much so I think our dog would have left with her if she could! Communication before, during & after were excellent. We would highly recommend Sabine to anyone & hope we will be lucky enough for her to come back & visit us again. Thank you Sabine.

Our housesit with Sabine

We asked Sabine to look after our house and timid dog Tiko for a week. In a nutshell, we couldn't have asked for a better, nicer, more caring person. Tiko obviously was enjoying himself on his numerous walks and trips to the beach, judging by the photos that Sabine sent us via Whjatsapp We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her.

2 months house sit in Bali

Sabine came for a 2 months housesit to my house. She took over from another house sitter so we didn't meet in person but she got her share of troubles in my home right after she arrived, that she handled in a amazing way. She arrived in a house partly broken of a previous earthquake, the dogs were having major problems with ticks and 1 dog got very sick, she handled it all like a pro with a shower of love for the animals and kept me up to date with messages and pictures. My animals loved her reiki sessions and her playing music for them. She has left a great impression to all my friends here and I hope I get to meet her someday, somewhere also ? Take care pretty woman! Much love Daphne

Sabine French

Sabine minded our apartment, rental apartment, (with two changeovers), and cat for 3 weeks from Aug 20-Sept 10, 2018. She looked after both apartments very well, Sooty appeared to have been well cared for and she communicated with us while we were on holiday in Scotland in a professional but friendly manner. She also watered our plants and vegetables and kept the place in fine fettle while she was here. Sabine received pleasant appraisals from our guests and there were no complaints. We were extremely happy with her as our house sitter and would recommend her to any future house owners.

Contented animals and spotless house

Sabine looked after our 2 collies, 2 cats and various poultry for 3 weeks. All were healthy and happy on our return, plus an immaculate tidy house. Sabine was quick to reply to any emails and easy and flexible in making arrangements. We would be happy to welcome her back.

Great housesitter

Sabine house sat for us for a month during the summer of 2017 while we were away. She had one nervy cat to look after and did us and the cat proud. She was easy to communicate with to set up the house sit and flexible about dates and times. While we were away we had complete confidence in her and came back to a house that had been immaculately looked after. We particularly enjoyed getting to know her beforehand and hearing about all her plans and we wish her the best in her future travels. We would not hesitate to recommend her as a housesitter.

Ideal housesitter

If Sabine offers to sit for you then you need look no further. She looked after my two dogs and large house over Christmas on her own. She is energetic, confident, reliable and not be easily fazed. It was so nice being able to go away knowing that the dogs and house were in safe hands. She left the house perfectly clean and tidy and the dogs were exhausted from their long walks, I couldn´t have asked for anything more. Good luck Sabine on your travels x

Best friend for Cosmo (our dog)

Sabine looked after our dog Cosmo like he was her best friend. We were away for 6 weeks and came back to a clean and tidy house and a happy dog. Thank you Sabine.
