grey nomad era

70, retired teacher-librarian

I am Australian, live in Australia, and would like to visit Vancouver for spring. I did a teaching exchange to Vancouver in 1999, lived there for the year, and absolutely loved it. I always promised myself I would return for a long stay, but work has kept me busy. Finally my work commitments have eased. I still have a voluntary job that I do online, and now that I am older I find I am less needing to be out and about, just looking forward to being a Vancouverite again. I adore cats, but have never been in a situation to have them. I have looked after dogs, cats and houses for family and friends over the years, even doing a farm sit. I will look for rental accommodation for two to three months, but if a housesit comes up that I would suit, it would be wonderful. Following that, my brother lives in New York, and I will be visiting him over the years, so will be available for housesits on the east coast as well. References attached.

Maggie has been the best housesitter I have encountered. Her care and attention for my cats and my home have been exceptional and I would be more than happy to call on her in the future if she is available. She kept me updated and asked any questions if she was unsure about procedure . Thank you Maggie. I am pleased also that she enjoyed her stay.

Maggie took such great care of our cats and our house while we were away. Communications from her were prompt and thorough, and she was the epitome of courtesy and reliability. We are extremely grateful, and cannot recommend her highly enough.! Thank you Maggie!

Maggie was a blessing. Looked after our home and cat so wonderfully. Very professional, and left house spotlessly clean and with kind touches like making up the bed for us and leaving us milk. Watered garden during a very dry patch in the weather. Great communication when away. Would highly recommend Maggie as a house/pet-sitter.
RACHEL (New Plymouth Central North Island, Dec 2022 - 4 weeks) From Kiwi House Sitters
It was a delight to meet Maggie and have her as a guest in our home. The cats were very settled and they liked her from when they met. We were totally relaxed knowing that Ash Marnie and our home were in her care. Highly recommend and welcome her back at any time. Thanks and our appreciation for being here Maggie. Leonie, Chris, Ash and Marnie

Maggie's love of cats was apparent at first meeting. She regularly updated me on my girl's well being and swiftly prepared the property, when inclement weather threatened the region. It was good to know my home and cat were in her care.
