Since HA has structured the site as primarily an exchange, I am happy to do unpaid sits, although helping to defray travel costs is always appreciated!

I do typically charge when people contact me from other sites, as home- and pet care is a service like any other.

Purrrfect Pet Sitter/Housesitter!

freelance writer and business coach

Put your mind at ease by putting your pets and home in my care. I'm the purrrfect petsitter: a mature woman and experienced house sitter / pet sitter / property caretaker, who will lavish your animals with love and provide a reliable presence on premises to ensure security. Hiring me = peace of mind for you:

* 25 years housesitter expertise
* Many satisfied homeowner references
* Onsite day & night (work remotely via laptop & phone)
* Responsible, respectful, tidy, quiet and clean
* Health and eco oriented
* NO smoking/alcohol/drugs (and will only sit smoke-free homes)

** Please Note **
1) I'm based in the Bay Area, and can only consider a sit at great distance if it is for an extended time period. Thanks for understanding.

2) I drive a small camper van to my sits, so your approach road, and driveway or street parking, must be able to accommodate: i.e., mostly flat, not hilly and winding.

How may I serve you?

Amara was an amazing pet and house sitter. She was very thorough and communicative and both our house and our 3 fur babies were in perfect shape. I look forward to having her sit for us again!

Amara's presence at our home was a wonderful peace of mind for all of us while we were on a family trip. We came home to a happy, healthy cat and chickens and thriving plants. We especially appreciated her communication. Thank you Amara!

Amara was an excellent property caretaker for our remote 120 acres in the mountains above the Central Valley, where we are creating a yoga retreat and are in the midst of extensive renovations. She stayed for 5 weeks. She's a trooper! With a property this remote, it is essential to have a presence onsite at all times. Amara interacted with various service teams that came by, and always informed my brother and me promptly of what was happening. She's professional, well organized, and ... MORE

No rating What a gem is the lovely Amara! She took excellent care of my two cats and home for two weeks. She is very responsible and conscientious. She showed up on time and carefully followed through with all instructions. Amara takes her responsibilities seriously and communicates clearly and effectively. She reached out with a few questions to make sure the cats and garden were well cared for and I'm glad she did as one of my kitties is very skittish and her presence was calming for the poor boy! ...

No rating Amara did an excellent job taking care of my kitty and numerous houseplants. She came prepared with lots of questions, to ensure that every detail was covered for my month-long absence. A few unexpected things happened while I was gone (the garbage disposal broke, the spark arrester fell off my chimney), and she dealt with them competently. Whenever I emailed her for updates, she replied immediately. When I returned home, the house was spotless, and she even left food for me so that I didn't ... MORE

No rating Amara was a great pet sitter and house sitter! She spent a lot of time at our home which was wonderful for our puppy and two kitties. She has great attention to detail and our house was very tidy upon our arrival back home. We were very pleased with all of Amara's care and effort!
