A Smart, Caring, Dependable FREE Sitter

42, Freelance Editor, Writer & Researcher


My name is Nikki Johnson. I'm a fun-loving, conscientious, reliable intellectual with a warm, caring nature. It would be my honor, privilege, and joy to tend to your home.

As a seasoned writer, editor, and researcher, I am able to live and work happily anywhere in the world. I do not drink or smoke — just good, clean living all the way!

Consult my profiles on MindMyHouse, TrustedHousesitters, LinkedIn, and Airbnb for more background information about me, including glowing references from both personal and professional standpoints. Contact me for the links.

I gave up my apartment in Manhattan in 2014 to see more of the world — to live in different places and grow from the experiences.

I have been house- and pet-sitting across the globe since 2015, in addition to fulfilling the role for friends and relatives. I can supply references as needed. All owners have been thrilled! Contact me for the link.

I'm also an avid user of Airbnb. I've left each apartment just as tidy and well-tended as when I arrived, following through on all instructions left to me for maintenance of the properties.

Above all, here's my promise to you: Absolute trustworthiness. I will treat your home exactly as I would my own, with a genuine commitment of tender loving care. I'm a smart, dependable woman with the ability to think quickly to solve any problems that may arise.

I am open to traveling anywhere in the world, and I am able to entertain myself for days on end with a simple connection to WiFi and good books by my side to read. I have a deeply caring, selfless quality that is simply an innate part of my personality.

Let's chat about what I can do to help take care of your home! I look forward to speaking with you....

Nikki took care of our kitty and house in two different periods over the summer. Everything was 100% seamless and we could not have asked for a better experience. Nikki was super quick easy to communicate with, sent us pics of our kitty every day, was kept our house plants nice and green and left our house spotless. We have recommended her to our friends & neighbors and hope the stars align for us for a future sit with her. Thank you Nikki for allowing us to relax on our trip knowing that ... MORE

No rating Nikki was a godsend! Not only is she a loving and welcoming person but very responsible and more. She took care of my house and my dogs for 3 weeks, allowing me to travel without concern. If I could pull her away from her life and have her house sit for only me I would. She's been doing this for many years and it shows! She's smart, easy to get along with, and fun. You won't regret choosing her and I am sure I'll use her again and again when our schedules sync up!

No rating This was our first time using house sitters and we really did not know what to expect. We feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to meet Nikki and have her take care of our "kids" -Maui and Max. Nikki was great about sending me updates on what they were up to and let me know how things were going at home. It was very reassuring as I tend to worry about my pets. On top of being great with them we found Nikki to be a delightful person- we loved talking with her and she is a very positive and ... MORE
