Why I Created Home Sitters Worldwide

If only I had a dollar for every time someone asked me, “What do you do?  Why do you pet and home sit?”  I’ll let you in on the answer! “Because I LOVE it!  I love the lifestyle, I love the people and pets I care for, and I love the beautiful places I get to explore.  It’s the perfect fit because I’m doing something that I truly love.  And because I care so much about what I do, I’m always at my best, no matter where I am in the world.”  Being happy in what anyone does is a huge bonus, and not always something that everyone finds in life.  For me, it’s now my only true reason for what I do.  It’s my passion.  The fact that I save on rental, utilities, insurance, maintenance, and so on, certainly adds value to my thinking, but I also love the fact that I’m helping people who may feel a little trapped by their in-home responsibilities, when it comes to wanting to leave home, even for a little while.  With several years of trusted personal experience as a Home and Pet Sitter, I know just how to handle almost any situation, and our Members, at Home Sitters Worldwide, have come to rely on our standing as a unique and professional personal service.  Travelling to assignments in Australia, The Netherlands and the UK, I’ve both managed and cared for:

  • Homes and Apartments
  • B&B’s
  • Larger Rural Properties
  • Smaller Acreage Properties
  • A variety of animals  e.g. Australian Native Marsupials, Poultry, Birds, Lizards, Snakes Dogs, Cats, Cattle, Horses, Rabbits, Goats, Llamas, Alpacas, just to name a few!
  • Veggie Plots, Orchards, Native and Exotic Gardens, Indoor and Outdoor Potted Plant
  • Even Teenagers and Children who need to stay at home, but can’t be on-hand to take care of the property and/or pets themselves.

Get on board and join us at Home Sitters Worldwide.   You, too, can either travel to places like me, or have that holiday (or business trip) knowing that everything you ask for will be taken care of in your absence!

 

Felicity

felicity-headshot-smaller Sharing in the excitement of Home Sitters Worldwide, I’m passionate about bringing people together around the world.  I’m Felicity – a wife to Brett, and mother to two beautiful boys (Mitchell and Dylan).  HSW is very much a family affair, and working alongside my mum, Francien, brings me much joy.   We’ve both worked hard to build the business to what it is today.  Whilst I’m incredibly active within my local community, you’ll usually find me in the HSW Office, taking care of the Administrative things.  Co-ordinating our Home Sitter and Home Owner Members is so rewarding.  One is always excited to find the perfect other, and relationships between the two parties, often from other ends of the world, begin with our help.  Either Francien or myself are always on-hand to assist with, or find, solutions for Home Owners who just can’t leave home without the support of a House Sitter, and House Sitters who just love to help them out with bounds of enthusiasm.  There’s never a dull moment in our office, which is why we have regular Members who just keep coming back for more.  Although I don’t actively take part in the actual Sitting side of things, I understand your needs, and I’ll do everything I can to help make the process easy for you.

At House Sitters Worldwide, we just love bringing people together for mutual benefit.

Feel free to make contact with us TODAY!

We’d love to help you get started.

Kind Words &Testimonials

Francien cared for Simon (our Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy), three cows and four chickens.   When we returned it was obvious that our dog had had a wonderful time with Francien.  She even took Simon to Peppermint Bay Restaurant – and brought him lunch, too!   

Francien was a fabulous House Sitter.  We had a lovely time getting to know her prior to our holiday departure.  She took on board all of the details surrounding the care of all of our Beagles, the lizards, and the cat.  We knew our pets were in very good hands.  Actually, they were spoilt rotten!  On our return, we were very impressed with the level of care, AND the house was cleaner than how we left it.  We highly recommend Francien to any potential Home Owner Members lucky enough to have this lovely lady house sit for them.

Francien absolutely  loves animals and this showed in the way she took care of our two large dogs.  Francien fitted in quickly to their daily routines, and they loved her.  We felt confident leaving our pets and home in her capable and trustworthy hands for two weeks.   We would definitely ask her back again.
