About this sitter

I am a 65 year old woman who is well travelled and educated. I live in a country town where I have established a design studio and restored and refurbished a Modernist 1950's house designed by distinguished Australian Modernist architect Peter McIntyre. I installed an in-ground pool so I am accustomed maintaining a pool and an extensive garden. My home pet is a 7 year old Italian Greyhound, Raphael (Raphy). see pics.

Why they want to house sit

I am seeking a respite in Italy where I have spent some time in Umbria and Sicily in recent years. I love driving in Italy and my Italian is poor but I have some vocabulary and no trouble communicating. I would like to spend some time writing and maintaining my website and blogs @www.biophiliarts.com -"where art meets nature".

Their experience

I am an air bnb host at certain times of the year and my ratings are very good (5star). see air bnb - The McIntyre House, Bairnsdale, Victoria, Australia

What can they bring to the assignment

I understand the business of maintaining a clean, quality residence. I have an art collection and a design practice at home so presentation and attention to detail is something that is part of my modus operandi. I enjoy living in Italy because it is the most civilized country in the world.
