About this sitter

I was a home owner for 30 years and recently sold my house and retired early to travel. I am single and free to go wherever life takes me. I love exploring new places, creating memories, learning about other cultures and experiencing all that life has to offer.

Why they want to house sit

I am highly responsible and feel housesitting would be a great way to explore the world, and allow me to enjoy a variety of environments at little to no cost.

Their experience

For over 40 years I have taken care of many friends and family's homes, children and pets whenever the opportunity presented itself. I have personally had and/or taken care of a variety of animals: dogs, cats, turtles, fish, bearded dragons, chickens, snakes, hamsters, gerbils and rats.

What can they bring to the assignment

I have over 30 years' experience in being a homeowner and know what it takes to care for and respect your property as I would my own. I have a passion for life and a love for all living things. I can ensure that your home and pets would be in the best possible hands.

Testimonials

Wowsa!

This was the second time I asked .aria to take care of my pet family. They love her! They kept looking for her the first few days. As a pet person, I have such confidence in Maria. She loves them up! I am so happy to leave my pet family and travel, knowing they are well taken care of by our lovely Maria.

!! AMAZING AND PERFECT IN EVERY WAY !!

We were blessed with our second pet/home sitter from Mind My House! Every trip to Europe is challenging because we do not want to impose plane travel on our beloved dog Jazz. So it is always with a heavy heart that we approach the date and look for a sitter. We were late doing so this time around for our Christmas/ New Year's holidays, but boy were we lucky. We spent a long time video chatting with Maria and liked her instantly. The more we talked, the more we knew she would be perfect for Jazz, since our previous sitter was not available. This was the only video we set up and we immediately confirmed our commitment to having Maria in our home. She came a day early so we had time to show her around, and enjoy getting to know her. We loved everything she brought to the scene, and Jazz didn't even bark when she showed up- a sure sign he was at ease. Our stay in Europe was made all the easier by Maria's care, messaging, and pictures. She and Jazz got along beautifully and we returned to a happy pet and a beautifully maintained home. Maria went above and beyond to play with, walk around our forest with, and love Jazz. She had a hard time leaving him, and her kindness and love showed in every way. We HIGHLY recommend Maria and would entrust our home and Jazz to her any time whatsoever. She is a fabulous person and a fascinating human being to get to know. Maria, thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We hope to keep in touch and see you again. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Susan & Arno

Unbelievable!

Maria was absolutely unbelievable in the way she took care of my precious fur kids, my home and me! She kept me in the loop with photos of walks in different parks with my dogs and photos of the cats and dogs all snuggled on her bed. Maria was so kind, so nice- I wish she lived nearby. The house was left immaculate and like I never left. The animals were sad to see her go! I would not hesitate to have her stay here again. Any one would be lucky to have Maria as a committed and wonderful sitter who truly loves animals.
