About this sitter

Most importantly I'm allergic to horses and cats, but I love all animals especially dogs.

I can be contacted on watsap +34 602 68 16 05 prefer text to phone calls ;)

I am travelling in my motorhome so will not need to use your accommodation.
I will just need space to park my motorhome, so we can discuss height, width, length and weight.
I may bring my husband on some housesits, there is a picture of him above with our daughter.

I am a vegetarian with a gluten intolerance, which has made me very inventive and innovative with cooking to maintain a healthy diet containing natural vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Basically, I know about food :)

I am an independent female full of energy and zest for life, always looking on the bright side.
.
My youngest child recently left home, however, myself,husband and child house sat together through this site for over 10 years, until we were grounded due to our engine breaking.....it's now fixed.

I have Spanish residency, but I am English. I don't speak Spanish as well as I would like, but can manage somewhat.

I am good at gardening, weeding and all, and know my digitalis from mesembryanthemum.

I am fully capable of dealing with generators, solar panels and off grid living.

I will leave your home as I find it, and respect it more than I would my own.

I will love your pets as much as I do my own. I have a small female dog who travels with me, she is young and playful and loves all other dogs and people.

I do NOT charge for housesitting because I see it as a fair exchange.

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.



Why they want to house sit

I want to housesit because I will be travelling again, and so would like to help people whenever I can. Also I am aware that most dogs don't feel happy with boarding kennels and would prefer to be loved in their own homes, I have a lot of love to give. I enjoyed housesitting with my husband and daughter for many years.

Their experience

Yes 10 Years + housesitting with my husband and daughter, we shared a profile on this site previously.

From my previous listing on this site....I will try to find out if I can copy references...? If not then I guess I am just starting again, because many people we housesat for are no longer on this site.

What can they bring to the assignment

I can bring love for your pets, and security for your property. I am fully prepared to do gardening, in fact I would love to, as I like to be busy. I am adaptable and familiar with being outside of my comfort zone and slumming it...so to speak.
I am reasonably handy, can fix small things..ie: tap washers, basic plumbing, loose door handles etc. I can build ponds, walls, do garden landscaping. I do not panic and I am a trier. I am extremely resourceful and very reliable.
I may bring my husband on some housesits.

Testimonials

Reliable, resourceful house sitters

Maria, Toff and Amber (the dog) have just spent 4 weeks admirably looking after our place in south-west France. They kept in touch with us regularly and even sent photos of the wild orchids which came into flower in our garden. They got on well with our close neighbours whilst here too. We found them to be very confident, resourceful, chilled out and self sufficient in knowing exactly what was required for our house sit. We would have no hesitation in recommending them for other house sits and wish them luck with their future adventures.

Caring and responsible

Maria housesat for us a few years ago over the christmas period. I can tell she was really loving and sensitive with our dogs. She is very tidy and clean and thougt about all the details to make sure the place looked even better than before her stay. She is very creative and made a lovely natural swiming pool out of wilderness. She kept in contact all the time and sent pictures regularly. I hope we see her again sometime in the future.

From the Chandler family

Maria was the first house sitter we ever contacted - and we were very pleased that we did. Although the dates for our trip didn't coincide, they didn't hesitate in coming to meet us and getting to know the animals. Our dog is timid but she warmed to Maria quickly. We got on so well that we have stayed in touch and subsequent visits have taken place over the years.
