Responsible, Respectful, Reliable & Mature

58, Business Manager (Retired)

Hi, I was previously employed as a Business Services Manager but decided to try something new so over the last 3 years I have been house sitting around Australia and absolutely loving it. I have house sat in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

I am a responsible, reliable mature age person who is respectful of other people's property and possessions. I have had cats and dogs in the past so am very familiar with their needs and also that they are a member of one's family and very precious. Caring for your pets gives me an opportunity to fill the void until such time as I can adopt my own.

I have owned my own residence, rented and also rented out my residence so know how important it is to get the right person, someone who is reliable, trustworthy and clean & tidy. I am a non-smoker, very organised, neat, reliable, honest person who enjoys travelling, photography, reading and walking and able to provide a current National Police check and written references upon request.

As I enjoy travelling house sitting gives me the opportunity in discovering new places and experiencing an area like a local. I always put my responsibilities first so will never leave your pet/s unattended for too long and will always follow your instructions 100%. House sitting is also a fabulous way to meet some wonderful people and for me to help others while fulfilling my own desires (travel and have the companionship of pets).

This is only a snapshot of me so if you would like to know more please do not hesitate to contact me and I am happy to meet over a coffee depending on location any my other house sit commitment.

Thanking you in advance for your consideration.

Kind regards

Della is a delightful lady and genuinely cared about our animals. Not only was she in charge of our very quirky and needy Maltese terrier but our big fat smoochy cat who apparently plonked herself next to Della for numerous scratches. Layla is very needy and standoffish but Della coped with her strangeness and weird eating habits wonderfully. Della is super organised and left the house immaculately clean and was also faced with the possibility of flooding during torrential rain, which she ... MORE

Thank you Wendy & Peter for your lovely review, it was a pleasure house sitting for you. Little Layla was very entertaining to watch with her quirky habits & Miss Frou Frou was so adorable. Your home is in a great location which is in walking distance to the supermarket & cafes, with a Bowling ... MORE
Della looked after our 18 month old cavoodle for a month over Christmas while we were overseas. This was our first time to use a house/pet sitter. Della was just fantastic from start to finish. Della came over to meet us and Bonnie initially and go through the routine. Bonnie was walked regularly and given lots of love and care over the month. The back yard was lovely and tidy and Della regularity scooped the leaves off the pool surface. Her communication was great while we were away ... MORE

Della took care of our Dog Winston and our house for a month we found her very easy to communicate with and her care of Winston was superb there were no issues while we were away and when we arrived home house was cleaned to a very high standard. And Winston was very happy we couldn't have had a better house sitter.

No rating We were very pleased that Della agreed to housesit whilst we were away in July, and even more pleased with her professionalism and preparedness. She definitely had her hands full with our two lively pups! We received regular updates, quick responses to our questions, and the house was left in perfect order. Della is more than welcome to stay at our home in the future!
