More InformationI am a Brit/South African in my late 30's, working online as an ESL English Teacher while I look after houses and beloved pets, and experience living in different areas of England and Europe. I can work from anywhere with a good internet connection!
I love to create a peaceful and well-maintained sanctuary and undertake my duties as a property guardian and/or pet companion with great care and respect.
I provide a safe and secure service for homeowners to go away and know that everything is fine. I am communicative and conscientious and will give you peace of mind.
I live a balanced life - into eating healthily, walking, reading (lots!), learning new things, travel, healing modalities, digital media projects, art galleries, book shops, history and culture and seeing new places.
I feel that this is something I do really well and enjoy - looking after animals with love, care and reliability; running a household, making sure it is clean, organising, corresponding, taking care of things, devotion to daily rituals.
I have had lots of housesitting experience, either through this website or via another housesitting website and word of mouth, as well as continuous requests to return for repeat sits.
I've given cuddles and medicine to animals and taken them to the vet. Here are some references:
"Lara housesat for us for almost three weeks while we were abroad. She was fabulous: very responsive - sent through pics of kitties and helped me with pictures of documents I had left at home. Cats were very happy, don't think they really noticed we were gone, and house was well-looked after and neat and tidy. I have already booked her for a future trip and will recommend her to anyone who needs a housesitter and animal lover." ~ Liese van der Watt, Hampstead

"Lara was the perfect housesitter for my dog while I was away on holiday. She looked after my apartment and it was spotless when I returned which was great after a long flight! Skip was happy and Lara sent me pictures so reassure me which was so kind. I would thoroughly recommend her and will be using her again if I can get her as I am sure she is in high demand!" ~ Jeanine

"Lara came to us at short notice when we had been let down by the previous three sitters, so we were immensely grateful to her. She looked after the cats well, including cleaning up when they were sick, and sent us photos of them for reassurance. She kept our house clean and tidy, we would have no hesitation at all in recommending her. Thank you so much Lara!"

"We were very pleased to have Lara looking after Nelson our cat and our house. She clearly made a real connection with him and he looked very healthy and contented when we returned home. Lara is a very kind and concientious person who likes to things properly. We would not hesitate to recommend her, or to invite her back again. Thank you so much, Lara."

"I cannot say enough good things about Lara, she was exactly what Scout needed while we were away. She is a very calm, confident, reliable woman and the cat loved her within days. Lara was such sport to calm my worries with daily photo updates. Just before we left the cat decided to get sick and required two different medications a day while we were gone. She was great and handled it really well, including picking up refills while we were gone. We recommend Lara for any petsit and would be so happy to have her come back." ~ Nichole
"A very reliable sitter
Lara looked after our home and two Siamese cats for six weeks. She was very good at communicating beforehand to coordinate her arrival to suit us. Lara was keen to ensure she understood the workings of the house and the cats' routine before we left. She is calm, quiet and responsible. There were no issue while we were away and we returned to find everything in order and the cats happy." ~ Patricia, Radlett
"Lara has looked after our house and our animals whilst we have been away. She is entirely trustworthy and exceptionally caring. Not only is Lara a most delightful person she is totally reliable, conscientious and sensible. She is quiet and thoughtful, kind and considerate. She is also capable and unlikely to panic in an emergency.
You can trust Lara to look after your house and any animals with care and genuine concern for their safety and wellbeing. I recommend her wholeheartedly.
