About Allegra Wilde:


Experienced Estate Mgmt + BNB Host (and cooking!)  Pet-Loving Wanderluster Booking NOW for Long-Term Assignments - Winter | Spring 2019 !!!


I'm a mature, intelligent and experienced Founder of an online art-based business. I'm able to manage my professional affairs from anywhere, and at 58 years old - am looking for a bit of non-American adventure. Not a fan of the US president, and am longing for a perspective that is more international.  I am well-traveled, enormously capable - have raised kids, cats, and plenty of dogs.  I'm neat and well-organized, unfailingly discreet, and very responsible.

At 58, and not having traveled internationally for a number of years, I am looking to immerse myself in a culture by living in it for an extended period of time.  I have always preferred a private home or apartment to hotels, and have been lucky enough to have experienced this kind of local living all over Europe.  Taking time to raise my two boys, it has been over 20 years since I've been able to do this and since my business can be operated from anywhere - I think this is the perfect situation for me.

I am resourceful, settled and not the partying type.  I am a gardener, fastidious in neatness and organization and a pet owner all my life.  I have owned/rented several large properties, and have remodeled or supervised the remodeling of many of them.  I am familiar with the ups and downs and calamities that can befall any homeowner, and am equipped to take care of most any unexpected issue that could come up during a house-sitting stint.

I'm available from January 20, 2019, for a minimum of 6 weeks.  Open-ended beyond that.

Homeowner in Hudson, New York

Allegra took over and ran my Bed and Breakfast during the summer - which is the busiest time of the year. Our bnb is a 5 room historical house in upstate NY. Her duties, which she performed expertly, included meeting and greeting guests, taking care of the rooms and their changeovers - and most importantly - and a huge bonus - cooked a full breakfast to order for each of our guests every day of their stay. I hope you get a chance to place your housesit in Allegra's hands - she is more than capable, fastidiously clean and responsible, and you can rest assured that you'll find your home in better shape than you left it..

Homeowner in Los Angeles, California

Mature, experienced, and reliable, Allegra managed my large house and property for more than 4 months - and went above and beyond to supervise a large renovation project. She is detailed, neat, and thoroughly trustworthy. On separate housesitting occasions, she has been a loving caregiver to my dogs, and as she runs her business from home - is able to spend quite a bit of quality time with them. I highly recommend Allegra as your next house or pet sitter without reservation.
