Hello, I am Jess, I am 25 years old and my profession is Personal Training. I am originally from Cromwell Central Otago. My reason for applying to house sit, is so I can save to travel overseas. It is also hard to find a place to live in Wellington at times, for good reasons! it is beautiful and very busy! So the option to house sit is very helpful.
I have looked after a few homes for as long as 2 weeks up to 4 months. Some live in, some just checking in and living off site, some with pets and some with other maintenance tasks like gardening, pool cleaning and other homely maintenance. Looking after a persons home is easy and enjoyable for me, I have been described by friends and family in the past as 'such a home maker!'.
I am happy and confident to look after NZs typical house hold pets... cats, dogs... rabbits, fish, birds... I am a confident learner, so if there are pets which need extra attention or special attention I can deliver. My mum is an animal enthusiast, so I was lucky to be raised in an environment which i was partially responsible for the lively hood and happiness of many pets! Including horses, birds and fish alongside bunnies, dogs and cats. If friend are away, I am the first person they ask to take care of their pets.
Someone who understands that the reason for a home owner getting a house sitter, is because their home, belongings, pets ect.. are very important to them. A good house sitter will respected and taken care of everything just as they would if they were the owner. values: respect, maturity, competency, honesty, reliable.
