Carol - Love Nature and Outdoors

67, Retired


My name is Carol and I would love to take care of your home, house boat and pets. I recently retired my position as Project Manager with IBM. One of my favorite things to do is explore new areas. I am a non-smoker, quiet, and very clean. Please see references below.

I walk and or hike daily so if you have a dog that likes to hike or walk we'd be a perfect fit. I love animals, Kayaking, Skiing golf, gardening, and almost anything outdoors.
I currently do not have a pet, my last pet was the worlds smartest cat - I had her "toilet" trained in 2 days!!

Reference: House sitting assignment (1) year in Boulder.

Carol house sat for me for (1) year while I was in Japan. She is fabulous, she took care of all kinds of situations for me including managing the removal, purchase and installing a new toilet, to overseeing a landscaping project and doing routine lawn care, etc. She is Very Honest.

This is a letter of recommendation for housesitting for Carol Williamson. She recently took care of our home while we were on a trip for over a month. We came back and we were delighted to see how incredibly wonderful the house looked and how clean everything was. She definitely treated our home like it was her own. Everything was neat and and beautiful when we returned. She also took care of our cat and took care of the flowers. Carol's care for other people and their homes is indicative of what kind of person she really is....a caring, loving, compassionate and conscientious person.
I would recommend her for any housesitting job.
I would recommend her for any kind of service job whatsoever. I have known her for over six years and she continues to be one of the most outstanding and committed people I have met.
Carol really is a blessing and it shows by the way she lives her life and helps other people. Anyone would benefit from having Carol work for them. She continues to live her life in an exemplary manner. It is an honor to know her. Thank you.
In peace ,
Gene Dove

No rating This being our first time using Housesitters America, we had some trepidations but, fortunately, we were extremely lucky to have Carol stay at our house. She took great care of our house and both our cats loved her. Furthermore, she took care of several special requests that gave us much peace of mind while traveling. Getting daily pictures of our cats was so thoughtful and such an example of the kind of wonderful person she is. We hope that in the future she will be able to sit for us again. ... MORE

No rating Carol sent regular email updates of Willa and the house WITH PICS! She was tuned in to our old cat and would update us on her shenanigans as well as when she was a little on the sluggish side - all of which was extremely comforting to a nervous mom! Communication was exceptional before, during and after her stay. I unequivocally recommend Carol!

No rating Hello House Sitter America, We had Carol as our house & pet sitter in September 2018 for 15 days. She provided excellent care to our two kitties and home sending us photos of their antics during our trip. We couldn't have asked for a better sitter! We highly recommend her! Lili & Michael

No rating Carol - Thank you so much for taking care of our house and cat. We would have you back any time. Carol kept us updated with photos and messages often. She kept our home in great shape and when we returned from our 5 week trip, we enjoyed a super clean home. Carol is reliable, responsive, conscientious, self sufficient, respectful, and a super genuinely nice person. Carol - thanks again

No rating We have a 14 year old cat and wanted a house sitter that would be willing to care for our cat. Carol did a great job with our cat and made it very easy to get back to normal when we returned. Carol also took good care of the house. Everything went really well and we appreciated Carol having house sat for us.

No rating Carol was fabulous...the house was the same as when I left it and she went beyond what was expected. I had trouble with my car before she arrived and she willingly took it in for me. Most importantly was the care for my dog. She sent me periodic pictures of him and ran into a friend of mine on the beach who told me she took him for walks for a total of 8 miles every day. Couldn't ask for a better sitter.

No rating Having Carol take care of the house and our dog made for a much more relaxing vacation. Prior to starting the house sitting job, Carol was very thorough in her questioning about my pets needs and routines. She asked things I didn't even think about. This attention to detail made me feel so much more comfortable leaving my house with a stranger. In our absence, I received periodic check ins and updates. She even took our dog to the vet because she was concerned with some GI issues of his. ... MORE
