I am an open, honest, social, clean, trustworthy, soft, positive,
outdoors, normal person with green thumbs and a big heart. It is in my nature to take care of things in my surroundings. That also includes people, animals and plants ;-)
I grew up in The Netherlands in a rural area with animals around. This
year I have turned 50 years old. Amazing!!
Furthermore I am financially independent, very tidy, practical, non smoker, non drinker, non drugs, nature and culture lover, hardly every watch tv, love to hike, practice yoga and have a caring patient personality by nature, so your cats, dogs and goldfishes ;-) will trust/love me for sure.
I have studied literature and linguistic, therefor I have a writing job so I only need a computer and WiFi to do my job. I like to travel. When I was young I have been sick for years and I wasn’t able to do so and now I like to catch up.
German (pretty well)
French (very basic)
Finnish (some words)
I like to travel and see the world. When I was young, and had the age for traveling, I wasn’t able to do so because of an illness and now I like to catch up.
Especially because I had breast cancer two years ago. That has changed my life and attitude towards life drastically.
The freedom I experience with traveling and meeting new people is very essential to me. Being a professional house sitter makes this possible to me.
I have studied literature and linguistics, therefor I have a writing job so I only need a computer and WiFi to do my job.
I have multiple experiences as a house sitter before I decided to become a professional house sitter.
One address was in Costa Rica (2017) for Ken and Siggy Martin, an American - Danish couple. They had a very secluded rural property and they now live in Mexico. No animals, only a beautiful tropic garden to maintain.
Another address in Costa Rica (2018) was for a lady who is a huge jazz lover. She is American and her name is Sharon Hammer. Two sweet dogs, a cat and a goldfish.
For Elle Collier from Oregon, US I have done several house sits. She runs a spiritual center called The Heart Gate a spiritual center situated in an old school building in the middle of orchards. Two cats and lovely garden.
Also in Oregon I have been house sitting together with a friend for Sarah Plotkin and David Kalousdian (2018) Cat and garden.
In October 2017, I did a 3 week house sit in the South of Portugal
for a Belgium lady Caroline Terheggen. The focus for me was to gain physically and mentally strength to get through the breast operation.
Caroline has a sweet, but shy, cat named Missy with whom I became best friends and in the end she even let me clip the tangles in her long hair.
In the Switzerland I have been house sitting for Patrizia Pedrazinni for a month (2019) in spring. She has 3 cats and she is planning to move to Portugal.
In The Netherlands I have done several house sits:
* A few times for Joke Jonkers in The Netherlands (2019). Cat.
* Several times for Arjan van den Boomen (2016, 2017, 2019). Chickens, cats, rabbits.
* For 7 weeks for Jan Hanhart who lives in a most modern project for elderly people in a beautiful eco neighborhood (2019). Cat.
* 4 days for an Andrea Tyreman, an English lady that lives and works in The Netherlands, while she was visiting her family (2019). Small dog, 3 cats.
* Several times for family Linssen (2016, 2017, 2018). No animals.
I will provide you with email addresses and phone numbers in a personal email.
Because of my tidy personality everything around me has the tendency to become more clean and sparkly.
I used to have 2 cats myself and also I raised abandoned kittens that where brought to the animal shelter until they where big enough to
list for adaption. So I have a lot of experience with cats.
Also I used to have a dog, a rottweiler. She unfortunately has died 3 years ago.
As I grew up with lots of animals around I do know how to handle most of them.
Furthermore I do know how to start a fire, hence my nickname 'Fire Woman'. I have lived in a house for 9 years that was heated mainly by a wood stove

Cannot recommend Linda more highly. She looked after my house car and dog for october 22 and came back March 23. The perfect houesitter
Linda house sat for us for about two weeks, watching our two cats, one of whom required some special attention. She did a great job with them as well as the apartment. We actually never met in person due to our travel schedules but Linda was very easy to communicate with and we felt comfortable knowing she was in our home and taking care of the pets. She'd be very welcome to sit for us again!
