70, mentally and physically active retiree

I have been house sitting in Australia since March 2018, the main purpose being to escape the long Australian summer.

I intersperse housesits with both online and physical attendance at financial and business functions such as Wholesale Investor (WI), Stock Exchange and other financial and business organisations. To this end, I have attended several in both the UK and AU.

Housesitting is an ideal means of experiencing local life and escaping the heat.
I have endorsements from both Australia that are transferable to the UK, and from within the UK.
I am an Australian of British descent & eligible for/have commenced my application. for an Ancestral Visa.

I am a fit & active female who loves animals and am willing to provide whatever care you would provide yourself for your beloved pet(s). I also enjoy gardening and I set aside time to walk for 1hr/day even when raining.

I am super clean & tidy, am a non-smoker and non-drinker & will care for your place & pets as I would my own.

I have run my own businesses since mid 1980's including 13yrs as Principal/Proprietor of a Private Tertiary College. Although I no longer have the college, I still retain an ABN (Australian Business Number - details below), work online & have a guaranteed income. Hence it is irrelevant where I am located. I have worked with/in IT all my working life.

My 'net name: Nadine Huegel' is very European, having studied both French and German.

Within Australia and the UK, I have completed house sits from 1 week to 3.5mths. All house sits have been cats, dogs & goldfish but I also love gardening and am happy to tend a garden if needed.

I am open to any location in the UK, providing there is transport within reasonable access, preferably trains (love train travel), although for a longer housesit, I may consider acquiring a vehicle.

My preference is for 1 - 3mth house sit.
I love meeting new people & new experiences.

(net name = Nadine Huegel
Nadine = anagram of Dianne
Huegel = German for 'Hill')

Just an amazing first experience of using this site. Our house sitter was brilliant and would recommend her services. She spoilt our cats and think they would have packed their bags and gone home with her. Had regular updates with photos and we are hoping that when she comes back to the UK, she will come and stay with us. She was more than just a sitter, truly friendly. The house was neat and tidy and all my house plants survived. A great fun lady.
DIANA AND COLIN (East Sussex England, Feb 2020 - 3 weeks)
Nadine was a wonderful sitter. My two cats were very relaxed and obviously were given lots of attention. The garden and plants had been watered and the house was clean and tidy. As a communicator Nadine was brilliant at keeping us up to date, sending lots of texts and alleviating any worries we may have had.. The day before we were due to fly out the garage door malfunctioned and a drain blocked up. Nadine handled these unexpected "disasters" with no bother and all was under control when we ... MORE

SANDRA (Abermain NSW, Jul 2020 - 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Nadine, was an excellent sitter our house and pups were very well cared for and everything was perfect on our return from holidays. We are so happy we found her to take care of things, Nadine, provided daily pics and info which put our mind at rest at all times. Thanks again Nadine, we would highly recommend you to anyone who needs a fantastic sitter. Deb and Grant
DEBBIE AND GRANT (Kariong NSW, Jun 2020 - 1 week) From Aussie House Sitters
Dianne did a fantastic job looking after our puppy Millie for five and ½ weeks. Being a very picky eater, Millie only liked chicken and rice so Dianne accepted the mission to try new foods for her. We now know of other things she likes to make eating a bit more fun. She also introduced Millie to bones with the extra benefits that she no longer eats our plats! Dianne kept us informed all along with very detailed updates documenting what she was trying, what was working and what didn't. ... MORE
PAULA (Asquith NSW, Sep 2019 - 1 month 1 week) From Aussie House Sitters
This was my first time using a house sitter so I was very nervous, I have 2 elderly dogs that need medication. I couldn't have asked for a better house sitter. Dianne was outstanding and went above and beyond to care for my pets. My dogs got ill and stopped eating during our time away so Dianne hand fed them and purchased extra food to try and get them to eat. She kept us informed every day of their progress and exceptional with her care. I would not hesitate to use Dianne again and can't ... MORE
KAREN (Blue Bay NSW, Jun 2019 - 3 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Dianne was an absolute dream of a house sitter. She took amazing care of our pets and our home, and was so easy to communicate and coordinate with. Dianne was quick to ask questions about anything we forgot to mention, and ensured that our pets were cared for and loved in our absence. She provided us with regular photo-updates of our pets, which we really appreciated. Dianne definitely has a way with animals, and became fast friends with both our cat and dog - we could tell that they really ... MORE

No rating I cannot thank Dianne enough for the wonderful care and attention she gave to my cat Oliver, while we were away for 3 weeks. The communication both before and during the housesit was excellent and I felt comfortable and happy that both Oliver and the house were in safe hands. Thanks so much, Dianne

No rating Intelligent, warm, friendly,,responsible Australian lady who bonded beautifully with our cat Sophy. and kept the house very clean and tidy. Would be delighted to have her back anytime.
LINNY (Edinburgh Scotland, Nov 2018 - 1 week 2 days)
Nadine is a wonderful house and pet minder and I cannot recommend her highly enough. She took extremely good care of my house and my two cats while I was overseas for 3.5 months. She was always quick to reply to my emails and provided me with detailed and frequent updates about the cats. As a result of Nadine's high level of care, I did not worry while I was away as I knew that my pets, house and garden were in very capable and respectful hands. Nadine even drove me to the rail station with my ... MORE
GILLIAN (Narara NSW, Jul 2018 - 3 months 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Nadine sat for my elder dog Charlie for a month. My dog loves having company and Nadine was able to work from home and provide that for him. Charlie was walked everyday, twice if he felt up to it. My neighbours had met her in our absence and said she was lovely and saw her walk little Charlie. Nadine was great keeping in touch via email while we were overseas. Asking questions or any concerns, she openly asked. The house was neat and tidy and Charlie was in good spirits. Nadine has become ... MORE

I would highly recommend Nadine. She kept me informed on how my cat was going. On returning home my cat was very happy & my home was clean & tidy. I was very comfortable & happy with the house sit that Nadine did & would definitely use her again.
DENICE (Long Jetty NSW, May 2018 - 1 week 3 days) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Nadine kindly looked after Gabbie and our home earlier this month. She is a fascinating, independent lady who confidently stepped into our home to maintain the routine Gabbie is used to. She provided us with total peace of mind whilst we were away, keeping in contact via messages each day. Our dog, our home and my garden were all well looked after by Nadine.
DEBORAH (Umina Beach NSW, May 2018 - 3 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Nadine did an amazing job taking care of our house and our cat. She reassured us that everything was okay while we were away and our cat was SOOOOO happy with all the attention and love given to him. An extra bonus was that we returned to a house that was so spotlessly clean. Thank you Nadine. We have absolute confidence in you and hope that we can have you take care of our beautiful cat and house again.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
