About Lucy Atkins:

 I am an experienced non-smoking house sitter with a Blue Card (working with children card) and National Police Certificate. I have been house sitting for over 6 years and have excellent references in both Australia and New Zealand, including rural farms and are now looking for overseas opportunities from 2021 onwards.
Your pets are my first priority, they are treated as part of our family, and dogs are walked ever day. I send frequent updates with photos via email. Our goal is for you to come home to a clean home and happy pets. I will not be working, so am able to spend more time with them.
As a home owner, I respect your home as my own. Additionally I will do light gardening, collect the mail, put out rubbish bins etc.
When we are not house sitting I volunteer in an animal shelter and foster cats. I have looked after dogs, cats, chickens, and guinea pigs and also have house sat on dairy and sheep farms. I have also maintained a half acre organic garden. I also have pets in my home as a paid pet sitter.
Widely traveled, I have lived in several countries  speaks some conversational Spanish, French and Hebrew.
I prefer to house sit in non-smoking homes with WIFI and a park/natural area nearby to walk your dogs. I am a very quiet person who enjoys gardening, hiking, reading and healthy cooking. 
My background is in Travel Sales, childcare and hospitality, and I am also  a  qualified Nutritional Therapist, so your pets will only be fed healthy food. 
I have access to Skype to make contact and am happy to supply ID documents to you during interview.

I felt very comfortable leaving my fuzzball with Lucy for 2 weeks. I was not disappointed! Lucy sent me frequent updates and my cat looked very happy and comfortable. Lucy will definitely be my first contact when I'm travelling in the future.

Lucy was great! She kept me well informed on my cat's whereabouts and gave his medicine as required. Lucy greeted us upon arrival home with some beautiful flowers, and maintained our home just as we had left it. Thank you! I will not hesitate to approach Lucy for further house sitting requirements. Thanks again!

We loved having Lucy in our home. She cared for our dog and house beautifully and to top it all made us the best Thai pumpkin soup we have ever tasted. We will definitely be asking Lucy to come back again.

Lucy is amazing with our spoilt cocker spaniel, demanding Birman cat and timid border collie. She walks in to the house and life goes on as if we'd never left. We don't have a moments worry while we are away. Lucy is an absolute treasure and we cannot recommend her highly enough. (6 repeat house sits)

We found Lucy to be an excellent sitter for our dog Bella. She visited twice per day as planned. In the morning to walk Bella for an hour and feed her and then in the afternoon to feed and play with her for another hour. We received daily photos via text and updates as to how she was doing. Lucy met us prior to the job, which was great to meet her in person and see how she was with Bella. Bella cut her paw towards the end of our holidays and Lucy needed to take her to our local vet. We felt completely informed during the whole process and really comfortable with Lucy who kindly took her to her own home to watch her for the afternoon. She sent us photos and made sure that we were informed with her condition and ok with her care as everything proceeded. we would highly recommend Lucy to anyone needing pet sitting with her. She is kind and compassionate and very friendly. Thanks Lucy, we appreciate you very much.

We can highly recommend Lucy. The house was immaculate when we came home and our elderly cat clearly very well looked after and very relaxed.

Wayne and Lucy cared for Bruce at very short notice over New Years and we are very happy with how it went. We received daily updates which gave us so much peace of mind. Would definately use Lucy again.

Lucy house sat our apartment and our gorgeous 10 year old Australian silky terrier Angel for 5 weeks while we were in Europe. She kept us updated regularly on her progress together with photos which was very comforting given that this was the first time we have left Angel with anyone other than family or friends. On our return home Angel was in excellent health and not stressed at all. The apartment was as we left it and Lucy had made us a delicious pot of pumpkin soup. We will definitely ask Lucy to look after our Angel again when we next go on holidays. Thank you so much for everything Lucy, you are a GEM!

Lucy and Wayne looked after our home and animals for five weeks while we were in Europe. We could not have asked for more caring and competent house sitters. It was lovely to come back to a warm house, happy animals, a pot of delicious pumpkin soup ready for dinner and a sourdough starter ready to go in the fridge! We are very grateful for their commitment and attention to the needs of our animals. Thank you Lucy and Wayne.

Lucy & Wayne were fantastic & did a great job of looking after our house & farm animals while we were away. A super friendly couple who communicated well. We have no hesitation in recommending them as A+ house sitters.
