House fairy

65, office mgr./cfo

I am a semi-retired mom and grandma who loves travel and adventure. I spent 20 yrs wandering around with my husband during his career in the US Air Force. When he retired in 1994 we built a home and settled in Moore, OK. We have been sharing this acre of land with a number of dogs & cats who have adopted us over the years. Being on the outskirts of town with open land has provided us the opportunity to rescue a number of furry friends.

I just recently finished being a caretaker for my husband's 94 yr old mom with dementia and decided that I would like to resume traveling. Signing up to be a house sitter seemed like an ideal way to combine my love of travel with my ability to care for others. I am very conscientious and will look after your home and pets in a caring and professional manner.

I am very active and love the outdoors. My land is extensively landscaped and I have been working part time as a landscaper in my area. I have had a small private nursery business, growing drought tolerant plants for the past 8 years but just recently closed it to focus on running my sons office. I work from home running my son's office but I'm still able to travel and work from wherever I'm housesitting. I do need to have a home with an excellent WIFI connection. Please be honest about this. Some homeowners have not been and in once recent case I almost had to leave the agreed upon housesit and return home.

I am a non-smoking neat freak. My kids call me a hippie because I recycle and reuse everything. I believe in being a responsible citizen of the earth and using all of our resources wisely.


Housesitting jobs located near water will always catch my attention because I'm an avid kayaker. This is one of my favorite forms of exercise.

I look forward to taking care of your home and playing with your pets!!

Since 2014 I've cared for dogs, cats, sheep, chickens & a donkey.... .

They don’t get any better than Julia. She’s a pro!
PAMELA ( California, Jan 2024 - 3 weeks - 3 of 6 endorsements from this owner )
We feel so fortunate to have Julia care for our cats and our house. There’s no one better.
PAMELA ( California, May 2024 - 3 weeks - 1 of 6 endorsements from this owner )
We loved working with Julia. She is a very responsible person, a great communicator (sent many pictures and updates), kept meticulous care of our home (even organized our fridge, freezer, and pantry), made our plants better, and took wonderful care of Genie (who was happy as a clam). She even picked up and dropped us off at the airport which was another example of her going above and beyond. So glad we got to know Julia!
CATHERINE ( California, May 2024 - 2 weeks 6 nights)
Julia has been a regular house sitter for us for several years and we are so grateful that she is now part of our family. Totally trustworthy and caring.

They don’t get any better than Julia. She’s now a member of our family.
PAMELA ( California, Nov 2023 - 1 week 4 nights - 4 of 6 endorsements from this owner )
Julia is the best! She is not only reliable. but she cares for our home and our kitty as if they were hers. She's very neat, organized, and an excellent communicator. We treat her like family because that's how we view her.
PAMELA (Redwood City California, Jul 2022 - 1 week 3 days - 5 of 6 endorsements from this owner )
Absolutely loved having Julie sit for us. Thoughtful, easy to communicate with. Took perfect care of our exuberant Siamese kitten, patio garden was happy, and the house was clean and tidy. We would LOVE to have her back to sit with us again.
JENNIFER ( California, Mar 2022 - 6 days)
Julia took care of my two boys for the entire month of December 2021. It was the first time I used this service, and I couldn't be happier. It gave me such peace of mind to know that someone was there for them. My older kitty, Buddy, is a very finicky eater. His latest food liking is cooked chicken and Julia would grill chicken for him once a week. Now that's above and beyond. The house was immaculate when we came home and she was available to ship items to us when needed. I would definitely ... MORE
SANDRA ( Nevada, Dec 2021 - 4 weeks)
Julia was fantastic. She got here a day early and we went over everything with our dog Lexi. She took excellent care of her. She sent us pictures, and took her walking. We felt at ease being gone knowing she was taken well care of.. it was also very helpful for us that she took us and picked us up from the airport. I'm glad she stay the night when we got home so she could have a full day to drive home the next day. We went out to eat and got to visit with her more and she's such a neat lady.
PATTY (Marble Falls Texas, Nov 2021 - Five days)
Julia is fantastic! She is smart, capable, and proactive. We would trust her with anything, which made leaving our cats in her care, as well as our home and garden, an easy choice. She's a great communicator and sent updates of the cats and garden throughout the weeks. When we returned, everything looked better than ever, and our boys were happy, relaxed cats who had clearly had a great few weeks in her care. We highly recommend Julia as your next Housesitter (although we hope she's available ... MORE
NICOLE ( Indiana, Jul 2021 - 3 weeks)
We loved having Julia as our pet sitter! She was professional, courteous, kind, funny, friendly and clean! She agreed to a virtual Zoom meeting prior to us going on vacation so we could meet and make sure she was a good fit. She asked all the important questions and we felt very confident leaving our animals and house in her capable hands. She cared for one small dog and one cat, she was comfortable with both animals. We had limited service while on vacation so did not check in very ... MORE
CHRISTOPHER ( Arizona, Nov 2020 - 1 week 4 days)
No rating Julie came to our house in June for a little over two weeks. I can't say enough about how pleased we were! Tilly and Ollie were very happy upon our return and were well cared for while we were gone. The house was super clean and Julia even did a few things we did not think to ask her to do! We enjoyed getting to know her a bit as we arranged to have her arrive the night before our departure We would definitely ask Julia to house sit again for us, and, in fact, did, for an upcoming trip in ...

LAURIE ( Colorado, Jun 2020)
No rating I cannot say enough about how fantastic Julia is. This was my first experience in using this site and I could tell in our conversations Julia knew what she is doing! Upon meeting her, she went straight for the dogs and wanted to make sure that they were comfortable and that she understood the specifics of their care. Julia cared for our home as her own. I left confident that she could handle anything that may come up. She is independent, communicative, kind, considerate and trustworthy. ... MORE
DEBBIE & JAMES ( Arizona, May 2020)
No rating Julia is a adventurous and resourceful sitter who loves to kayak. In fact, she travels with her very own 50 pound blowup vessel. In preparing for our 3+ week European vacation, Julia sent us a sheet of important information to make sure we were fully prepared should anything occur that would affect our safety in another country. While we were away, not only did a vicious hurricane threat occur, our air conditioning went out. Julia and her husband investigated the problem and were able to fix it ... MORE

No rating I can't say enough good things about Julia, so many, in fact, that she's coming back for another house sit. Julia is very responsible, experienced, professional, caring, and attentive. While we were away, there was an issue with our air conditioning, but before contacting our handyman, Julia checked all the circuit breakers and attempted to find the cause of the problem. She took excellent care of my "senior" kitty and was sensitive to giving Sophie her daily medication for the first time. ... MORE
PAMELA ( California, Jun 2019 - 6 of 6 endorsements from this owner )
No rating I would recommend Julia anytime to be a house/dog sitter. She watched our dog and house for 2 weeks and everything worked out great. She kept in excellent communication and was very respectful. She went above and beyond by cleaning and taking excellent care of our dog. She is great, I would not hesitate having Julia house/dog sit again.
CHAD ( California, Mar 2019 - 2 weeks)
No rating Julia was an excellent house sitter who bonded well with our cat, Sophie. In addition, she was good at communicating with us as to the time of her arrival when her plane was delayed in Dallas. Upon returning home, we found our condo to be immaculate and everything in order. I would recommend Julia to anyone seeking a house sitter.
CHRISTINE ( Texas, Feb 2017 - 2 weeks 3 days)
No rating Julia stayed at our home and watched our condo and 2 dogs for 12 nights in February 2017. She was amazing! Communication was excellent from the day we first spoke on line. What a warm person. The first thing she did when she came into our home was to sit down and get to know the dogs - before us even! I loved that. You can tell she is a pro - she even came with her own cooking pans! My dogs were happy when we got home and my home was even cleaner than when we left. My cabinets ... MORE
DONNA ( North Carolina, Feb 2017 - 3 days)
