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
- 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!
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.
