66, Retired Professional

Hello to you and your family.

I am an experienced professional (retired from McMaster University). I am newly retired and decided to rent out my owned condo in Sidney, BC to provide my help to those who need to get away and leave there babies (pets) in my care; if needed. I am so happy to help in any way. I will even organize cupboards or sheds for you, as I am so great at it. Or, think of something else you just can't seem to get to and we can discuss it.

Although there is no cost to have me in your home to house/pet sit, some hosts have taken advantage of my offer to also manage their Airbnb suites at their suggested fee while house sitting; please see testimonials below.

They factor in their cleaning fee for their airbnb costing. I have offered my ideas to improve their business and in some cases, they provide me with a budget to allow me to purchase items for them.

Feel safe and secure with me in your home:)

“During our absence, Teresa efficiently managed our two airbnb cabins ensuring they were cleaned and prepared between guest visits, and adding her personal touch to provide our guests with that special feeling during their stay. Since the cabins are located on our property, we also engaged Teresa in house and pet sitting during this time. She was an invaluable asset in caring for our property by meticulously tending to our property’s landscaping, and ensuring it remained in pristine condition. Her dedication to our beloved pets (dog/cat) were very much appreciated during our absence. She provided loving care by engaging with them and placing them as a top priority. Having Teresa live on our property, look after our pets, our home and our cabins, was paramount to our being able to have peace of mind while away. Teresa is a highly reliable, competent, and trustworthy individual who we wholeheartedly recommend for any house-sitting/caretaking role. Her exceptional work ethic, attention to detail, and genuine care have exceeded all of our expectations.”

“I am very pleased to share this testimony to anyone who might be seeking a reliable house/pet sitter for any length of time.

I would highly recommend Teresa! She recently house sat my 5 acre farm and cared for my 2 cats, 2 geese and 3 chickens during my recent one month absence. She was impeccable in terms of her cleanliness. She was always available through text/email to keep me updated in terms of any questions or concerns that could arise.

She was resourceful, respectful and responsible. My mind was at ease during my absence and I was never once worried about any aspect of care while I was away.”

Teresa was simply FANTASTIC!! She took amazing care of our pooch, and even though Ripley missed us, she wasn't manic upon our return, which is always a great sign. Teresa frequently sent pictures without us having to ask and reached out anytime she had a question, We could tell she was providing our pet with the love and care we offer each and every day. Our house looks fabulous, so clean and shiny! Ripley requires daily supplements to keep her happy and healthy and Teresa made sure she got her ... MORE

We had Teresa pet & house sit for us for 19 days in April. Teresa provided excellent care to our pets & home. She weeded flower beds, mowed our lawns & provided us with regular updates on Luna & Ella. Teresa said she like to keep busy & she was! We found Teresa to be very open, honest, & genuinely committed to providing excellent pet & housesitting services. She communicates clearly & without hesitation if she has a question. We came home to a house that was as clean & tidy or more so ... MORE
