Experienced Pet and Home Sitter

Sixties, Writer

Should you wish to holiday, I would be happy to care for your pets, including exercising and grooming them.
Animals generally respond well to me and am always a little sad to say 'goodbye' at the end of a sit.

Am caring, clean, organised and respectful of anothers privacy and home, treating the Homeowners possessions with the same care I give my own.

I take my responsibilities seriously and am practical enough to resolve most challenges, should they arise.

A daily walker, I lead a healthy lifestyle and enjoy gardening walking tai chi meditation music singing and reading.

Am a West Australian and have family living in Tasmania, so like to spend part of the year here.

Am a non smoker, have a police clearance and references.

Bea looked after our house and dogs really well. We met before going away and she was interested in finding out all about our dogs, especially Dennis who is elderly and on medication. We felt very confident and happy to leave our pets in Bea's care as she was so very in tune with their needs. Bea was very responsible and kept in touch during our time away. Bea walked the dogs regularly, and attended to their needs such as brushing and bathing their eyes - they are maltese shitzus. Arriving ... MORE

Thanks Bea for all of your support for home, garden, and animal friends. It is so nice to come up to a clean house and happy, contented animals.
MARY (West Hobart TAS, Jan 2024 - 4 nights)
Bea was our first house & pet sitter and she is a natural. It was obvious from the day we first met her that she loved dogs. Our Labradoodle Maddie took to her straightaway. and Bea gave every impression that she enjoyed looking after her in return. Bea regularly kept in to touch and sent us photos. She left our home in pristine condition. We hope that she will fit us in to her busy schedule again soon. We highly recommend Bea to anyone looking for a house sitter who loves dogs.
MILES (Lower Sandy Bay TAS, Apr 2023 - 1 month 2 weeks)
As a new member of Aussie House Sitters, I can only say what a wonderful experience it has been. Bea was truly a last-minute gift to Marley and me. She was gentle and attentive to Marley, and he felt instantly comfortable with her. She was more than willing to look after his health care needs and to walk him twice a day as well. Bea really wanted to ensure Marley's routine was as settled as possible. On my return home, Bea and Marley were indeed out on a walk; the house was lit, the scent ... MORE
NAOMI (Kingston TAS, Oct 2022 - Four Days)
We would highly recommend Bea as a pet sitter. She was fantastic to communicate with and our house was left cleaner than it has ever been. Bea took the time to check and water all of our vegetables, doing much more than was asked from her. On our return was a happy cat and a card, chocolates and fruit - an unexpected and lovely surprise, thank you.
CAMILLA (Eaglehawk Neck TAS, Jan 2022 - 4 days)
What a delight to have Bea look after our 3 pets including our aging Labrador who died between Bea's two sits. I found Bea to be such a caring kind person and I wish we had more time to get to know her as I think she is such an interesting character and our fur babies all thought so too. Bea kept us up to date with photos and messages about the "kids" and left the house sparkling :). Thanks Bea - it was a pleasure to meet you and we wish you good luck for all your future travels. Don't ... MORE

Bea was great with our pets and the house was very clean when we got home. She had left on the train a couple of hours before we were home and left milk and bread for us, plus fruit. Bea enjoyed our little town and I would recommend her as a house sitter.
BRIAN (Toodyay WA, Jun 2021 - 2 weeks)
Thanks for your review Brian. It was lovely to spend time with your delightful pets.
My pets Sinbad and Gigi were in the most loving care for the 4 weeks they were with Bea. She regularly sent me pics and messages about how they were going which was very reassuring. I returned home to an immaculate house and contented creatures. I feel like I have a new family member. Can't recommend her highly enough.
NADINE (Medina WA, Mar 2021 - 4 weeks)
If I could give Bea 10 stars I would! She was friendly and loved my dog and cat at first sight (and them her). While I was away she kept me informed on how they were doing. I not only came back to a house and garden cleaner and neater than when I left, but bread, milk, fruit and chocolates as well! Even though she was on a time schedule she still stripped the bed and washed all the towels and linen she had used prior to leaving. Thanks so much Bea. I loved having you here.
SUZY (Hamilton Hill WA, Mar 2021 - 6 days)
We just had the privilege of having Bea house sit for us. She was amazing. Came home to a beautifully clean and organized home and garden. She was extremely caring and also looked after and spoilt Roxy our Jack Russell . She definitely went beyond what was expected. I would definatley recommend Bea to housesit.
JILLIAN (Duncraig WA, Feb 2021 - 3 days)
Bea was a perfect fit for our old spoodle, we came home to a spotless house, a happy dog, fresh fruit and snacks. Bea was easy to communicate with and kept us up to date. I would highly recommend Bea to anyone looking for a friendly, trustworthy housesitter
HEATHER (Melville WA, Dec 2020 - 4 days)
It was a pleasure to care for beautiful, gentle natured Elmo! Heather and Jimmy were kind, considerate, well organised, easy to communicate with and their home was very comfortable and clean.
Bea was a dream house & pet sitter. Communication throughout the time we were away was excellent with daily updates on our fur babies and regular photos. On our return we found our boys happy, healthy and very well looked after. It is very clear that Bea takes her house & pet sitting responsibilities very seriously and it was nice to know they were in the best hands while we were away on our trip of a lifetime. Our house was left clean which was lovely to come home to, and our garden was ... MORE

Thank you!..The pleasure was intirely mine guys!..xx
It was lovely to have Bea look after Oslo and my home while I was away a few weeks ago. She sent regular updates and even had bought milk, bread and a little gift for me when I got home. I appreciated her communication and the thought and care that she put into looking after my home and my mischievous tabby.
ALLY (East Fremantle WA, Sep 2020 - 1 week 3 days)
So amazed with Bea. She has looked after my house and 2 cats with so much love and she will be missed for sure. Bea went out of her way to make us feel welcome back home as well. Would definitely have her over again. Take care Bea xx

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Margot's. Her 2 cats made my stay a lot of fun with their cuddly natures and quirky ways. Thanks Margot!!..xx
We're so grateful to Bea for looking after our home. Communication with Bea was easy and she took such good care of our home. Our gardens were well cared for, our home was clean and most importantly, she gave much love and puppy cuddles to our little english staffy :) Would definitely recommend Bea for any future house sits xx

SUSAN (Mandurah WA, Feb 2020 - 15 days)
I thoroughly enjoyed looking after 13 year old ragdoll getting to know her quirks! Susan is very clean and organised. Her home and garden were a delight to spend time in.
Bea looked after our house and our dog Indie while we were overseas for almost three weeks. Bea met us prior to the booking date and took an instant liking to our dog and we were confident that she would take good care of her and our home and we were not disappointed. Bea walked, brushed and bathed Indie regularly. She kept in touch with us sending messages keeping us up to date and also sent photos. The home was well maintained and it was great to arrive home to a lovely clean house. ... MORE
TANYA (Prospect Vale TAS, Nov 2019 - 2 weeks 4 days)
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with beautiful Indie! Tanya and Stephen are lovely caring well organised and proud home owners. It was a pleasure being their pet and home sitter.
Bea did a great job for us, above and beyond what we expected. The garden and the cats loved her attention. We'd recommend her to anyone.
PHIL (Mt Stuart TAS, Oct 2019 - 2 days)
Bea looked after our home and pets for just over three weeks. After meeting her prior to the housesit I instantly felt at ease leaving our fur babies behind. She was fantastic at communicating while we were away and I received regular updates with photos and sometimes videos of the pets. Bea gave the animals plenty of love, daily walks for the two dogs and even a trip to the beach. Our home was immaculate upon arrival and Bea had even gone to the effort of fertilising the houseplants which was ... MORE
JAMIE (Warner QLD, Jul 2019 - 3 weeks)
Bea kindly agreed to look after our home and farm and look after our dog and cat while we took a longer than normal holiday overseas. From first meeting Bea we knew that the animals would be loved, but in reality they were spoilt by her kindness and love given to them. Bea sent regular communication to us while away, explaining what was happening locally and with the farm. Bea also attended to feeding out hay to our cattle, as her earlier life was living on a farm. This provided added comfort ... MORE
DOUG & JENNIE (Burnie TAS, May 2019 - 1 month 1 week)
My time at Jennie,s and Doug,s farm with their delightful collection of cattle, fish, chickens, wild birds, and last but not least..., Tessie the dog and Gypsy the cat was a treat. Their comfortable clean cottage perched on top of a hill afforded a stunning vista through out each day.
We were delighted to have Bea as our housesitter. Everything was wonderful on our return and the dogs were sorry to see her go.
RANALD (New Norfolk TAS, Jan 2019 - 1 week 2 days)

JULIE (South Bunbury WA, Jul 2018 - 4 weeks)
I was very happy meeting Bea for my house sit it was only short but Bea was very gentle, loving and gave little Roxy loads of attention including walks which she loves. I received updates and even a cheeky photo of Roxy cuddled up in bed. I returned home to find a lovely pumpkin soup which went down well. Good luck with future travels. I would recommend Bea as a trusted house sitter. Faye Ducas Perth WA.
FAYE (Alexander Heights WA, May 2018 - 4 days)
Bea recently looked after our dog Nixon while we were overseas. While we were away Nixon was lovingly cared for and walked everyday by Bea. He was very spoilt and we were sent updates and photos regularly. We returned to a spotless house, which included our kitchen drawers being organised (greatly appreciated!) Would be happy to recommend Bea for housesitting.
KATE (Bicton WA, May 2018 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Bea was a wonderful person to look after our cat, two horses and home. The house was spotless when we arrived home and the animals very content. I think puss misses you, Bea also collected 20 buckets of horse poo for the vegie garden! Thanks Bea you are welcome anytime.
KIM (Maranup WA, Apr 2018 - 3 weeks)
Bea looked after our house & menagerie of animals while we were away over the Easter break & following week. I would have no hesitation in recommending Bea to any future person looking for a responsible house sitter. The house was immaculate upon our arrival home and our dogs, puss cat & other animals were certainly well loved & looked after. Bea kept in touch with the occasional sms message & photo letting us know how things were going at home. Thank you Bea for giving us a worry free break ... MORE
KIM (Lilydale TAS, Apr 2017 - 1 week 1 day)
Bea was a great house sitter. She took great care of my old dog Boris, he loved her! My other animals were also well cared for. My house was spotless and the garden weeded. She was happy to take me to the airport and collect me on my return. This is a trip of 1hr each way! I would have no hesitation in recommending her to take care of you property and animals. You will be able to go away secure in the knowledge everything will be fine when you return.
