About this sitter

I'm a responsible, mature and experienced house/animal sitter who respects your space, prioritizes neatness and can't wait to spend time with your furry (or not-so-furry) family.

I work remotely and appreciate the companionship, structure and playfulness that caring for animals demands. Some highlights from my animal-sitting experiences include:

Exploring local neighborhoods, first in Johannesburg and later in Cape Town, with Cappuccino, a snuggly rescue and 10-year-old's best friend. His owner says:

'Natasha has looked after my house and dog several times over the last few years. It is always a pleasure, because she is extremely organised and leaves the house spotless. She was very good about taking my dog for regular walks and always available telephonically in my absence. I'd have her back any day.'

Listening to music while cooking after Bruno's walk and dinner. The adorable French Bulldog loves music! His owner writes:

'It was lovely having Natasha taking care of our dog. She is easy to communicate with, and she was a great help when we needed her assistance in sending us some documents! I would definitely recommend her to anyone, and we are looking forward to hosting her again!'

In addition to caring for animals, I have had the pleasure and honor to enjoy expansive hospitality and generosity while traveling and living in new cities, states and countries. I have also been on the other side, serving as landlord, Airbnb host, extended friends and family tour guide and foreign study leader. In all contexts, I believe that open and clear communication is the key to establishing mutual respect and understanding. In my experience, such a foundation ensures that needs, wants and expectations are met.

'Natasha was an amazing house sitter, going above and beyond to make sure the house itself was taken care of in terms of safety and upkeep. She was in constant communication and became the most trustworthy house sitter I've ever had for my cottage. Her ability to know what questions to ask before I left to ensure my absence didn't hinder anything was so welcome and appreciated.'
