Joyful Sitter

55, School Counsellor/ Teacher


I look forward to house sitting for you and if you have animals (and/or a garden) caring for them as well. I have been around animals since a child having lived on a farm until I was seven.

I began house sitting in Sydney in 2015 after being asked to mind my friends kelpies on a regular basis. Due to renting, I was unable to have animals and was glad to help as I love animals. In February 2016, I began minding one home (large garden) every other week, when the owners went to their farm.
In 2018 I moved to Melbourne and resumed house sitting (mainly for colleagues). I've bought and sold a house and have been teaching in FNQ. It's time for some 'me time', so I have headed west and have based myself in WA for the year.

I've been working as a school counsellor/teacher for over 20 years and have a Working with Children Check and a National Police Check. I am a clean, honest and reliable person; I'm a non smoker and drink rarely.

I have house sat all types of homes; large homes and small ones. I've sat large dogs and tiny ones and many cats of various breeds. And one solo bird! I love animals, so pet setting meets that need well. As for gardens - I love them.

Having worked with Sharon for a number of years I have come to know of her interest in and love of dogs. She would often visit and spend time with our very energetic and demanding kelpies. So impressed was I by her genuine interest and care for our dogs that I asked Sharon to house-sit while we were away for 10 days in June / July. We left for holidays confident in the knowledge that our dogs would be well fed, walked, entertained, cared for and loved. We were also confident that our house would be looked after - Sharon is most trustworthy and honest. We came home to find two very happy and contented dogs and a house that was treated as a home.

With me looking after your place, you can have your holiday anxiety free.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Highly recommend Sharon she loved and cared for our fur babies and kept us updated the whole time. Sharon even weeded our whole front garden. She will not disappoint anyone and very reliable.

Avril is great to house/pet sit for. Easy communication all the way. Avril goes out of her way to make everything as easy as possible for you. A great location. Lexie and Gypsy are characters; I miss their dance first thing in the morning- always give you a fun greeting upon sighting you. Kimba the ... MORE
It was a pleasure having Sharon stay and look after our greyhound Jack, our home and garden. She did a beautiful job and we would be delighted to have her back anytime. Jack liked her straight away and started to follow her around before we had even left the house ;-)
NICOLE (Mosman Park WA, Nov 2023 - 3 nights)
Sharon is excellent. We would recommend her highly. With 2 days notice Sharon replied to our ad and came to meet Eva and ourselves. She was very friendly and caring towards Eva. Sharon asked if we would like updates whilst away or if we would prefer not to be disturbed. We love updates so we said yes please. Sharon messaged us everyday with photos and videos of Eva enjoying herself. It made us feel happy and calm on our holiday. The house was tidy and Sharon washed bedding and made our bed ... MORE

Thank you Rosemary for trusting me with your home and your delightful Eva, my first Dachshund. She is gorgeous and great company. Your home has a great vibe and I enjoyed exploring some of Subi. Loved this short stay. You are one of a kind!
Highly recommend Sharon to house/pet sit. She sent photo's of the pooches and didn't hesitate to ask questions if I had missed out any information. The house and linen was all clean on our arrival home.
AVRIL (Lakelands WA, Apr 2023 - 1 week - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
Sharon was the all round package of a house sitter. Her communication skills were fantastic, she sent updates throughout her sit making me content in her ability to care for my Hungarian Vizsla dog. Sharon made it her business to find out his likes and dislikes which made the sit very smooth for all concerned. I arrived home to a very clean and tidy home and one very happy dog. I would definitely recommend Sharon as a house sitter.
LEANNE (Donnybrook WA, Mar 2023 - 10 days)
Sharon was a great find! From the first messages I knew she was going to be thorough, trustworthy and hassle free. Sharon took careful note of the requirements during hand over and I returned to a spotless house and a happy . Big thank you to Sharon and I would be happy to have her sit for me again.
RYAN (Northgate SA, Feb 2023 - 4 days)
Nothing was too much trouble for Sharon. She communicated regularly and was very caring of our home and our two cats. Sharon also managed medication for our elderly cat One cat even went looking for her the night we came home. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sharon to anyone needing a cat sitter.
CAMPBELL (Parkdale VIC, Apr 2021 - 6 days)
Thank you Rosie and Campbell. You are one of a kind. Sharon
Sharon house and chook-sat for us for 3 weeks over the 2020 Christmas holidays. She took such wonderful care of our home, garden and three chickens, taking careful note of each important task we requested of her, and treating the place like it was her own. We felt completely confident having her take care of things for us, and returned home from our holiday to a spotless house, healthy plants and happy animals - such a lovely feeling! Sharon is a warm and delightful person, eager to help in ... MORE
LUCY (Kallista VIC, Dec 2020 - 3 weeks)
To be honest I was nervous about the idea of leaving my cat. My husband didn't like the idea of a house sitter but I decided to look into it. When I showed my husband Sharon's profile he slightly changed his mind. After meeting Sharon I knew that my cat would be well cared, Sharon made me feel so at ease! We chatted for about 2 hours! During our holiday she kept in touch with photos and videos (which helped a lot). When we came back everything was so tidy and clean it's like we never left, she ... MORE
SARAH & JING (Maribyrnong VIC, Sep 2018 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating Sharon was absolutely incredible - we would absolutely recommend her services to anyone....and have actually requested to re-book her for our next couple of trips! Our two Cats absolutely loved her - we could tell because they really didn't care about us when we came home! ALWAYS a good sign that things were perfect while we were away. Sharon took SUCH good care of our home also - everything was spotless when we returned and the cats' water and food topped up to the brim. It really is ... MORE
