Loving & Caring

63, Enjoying Life

I'm a mature, reliable female who is very tidy, house proud and a non-smoker.

I've looked after pets and homes in Australia, New Zealand and now the UK and have regular families who book me for their trips away.

I love animals and owned two beautiful border collies for 17 years until old age took them in recent times. I've also owned many cats over the years and love having them around me.

An important part of house sitting for me is really getting to know the animals I care for and gaining their trust while giving them lots of cuddles and attention.

I had my own horse for several years so fully confident to look after horses.

Because I don't go out to work I'm able to spend quality time making sure your pets get lots of cuddles, love and attention. I will look after them and your home as if they were my own so you can go on holiday feeling totally relaxed and knowing your home and pets are in safe, loving hands.

I am very calm, level headed and adaptable and enjoy change and new adventures.

I charge a small fee which covers my travel costs, but it puts all my families minds at rest knowing they've left their beloved pets in their own home in a secure environment in safe, loving hands.

Ashley came to stay at short notice, and settled in very well with our new Romanian nervous rescue and malamute husky and chickens, she sent us plenty of pictures and kept us updated, The little rescue took to her and gave her cuddles all day, we returned to two happy dogs, and immaculate house, I really hope Ashley is around next time we go away
KAY (Petersfield England, Sep 2019 - 10 days)
Ashley came to stay with our dog Tilly while we were on holiday, and we felt really lucky to have her. She clearly loves animals and Tilly took to her straight away. Ashley was easy to communicate with and we especially appreciated the photos we received while away. Ashley was very flexible, arriving the night before we left to accommodate our early flight, She even changed her plans to stay an extra night at very short notice when our return flight was delayed, which was a huge relief for ...

Ashley was very reliable and gave me constant feedback and photos of my lovely pets I felt very confident that Ashley really cared for Poppy and Buddy Also left me a beautiful bunch of roses for my return Thank you!
SUE (Tring England, Feb 2020 - Month)
Ashley sat for our anxious old lady for a short sit and treated her like a princess. A little bit of spoiling was needed to get her through the disruption and she was well looked after. I also came back to a much cleaner and tidier house than I'd left! No issues or concerns at all, would happily recommend Ashley.
JULIE (Oakham England, Jan 2020 - 3 days)
Ashley looked after our two dogs and home earlier this year. She communicated well throughout the whole process and we came home to a clean tidy house and happy dogs. Thanks Ashley! I would recommend Ashley to anyone thinking of using her.
JO (Cheltenham England, Jan 2020 - 1 week)
I wish there was a way to give Ashley 10 stars for the care and love she showed our animals during our recent holiday! She made us all feel completely relaxed from the moment she walked in. Our pets were so chilled around her from the start. We left the house with a big smile. Ashley also updated us regularly with photos of our little ones and kept us well informed. When we returned, the house was absolutely spotless and the pets as happy as if we never left them! I have no qualms in ... MORE
BERNICE (Bagshot England, Dec 2019 - 2 weeks)
It was my pleasure to look after coco, snickers, kitkat and your lovely home. Anytime again I'm yours x
Ashley was just like having an old friend in the house. Can't speak more highly of her. And Jaspa loves her
TERRY (Bednall England, Nov 2019 - Week)
Ashley was our first House Sitter and she gave us confidence we had made the right decision. Our two dogs loved having her stay and we had video / photo updates whilst we were away. As an added bonus we returned to an immaculately clean and tidy house!
BEN (Sevenoaks England, Oct 2019 - 10 days)
Ashley was an excellent sitter, she took amazing care of our dog and our house, and the house was so clean when we got home. She even hung in there when we had a key mishap, for which I'll be forever grateful!
LAURA (Cornubia QLD, May 2019 - 4 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Ashley looked after our and dog for ten days and if I could give her a six star rating I would. We returned to an immacuate house, thriving garden and a very contented and happy dog. Boots the dog obviously became very fond of her as he kept wandering into the guest room to see if she was there. I have no hesitation in recommending Ashley as a housesitter and hope she can return here on future trips.
ANNEMARIE (Samford Valley QLD, May 2019 - 1 week 3 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Ashley took care of our home while we were overseas for 3 weeks . Aside of taking great care of the place Ashley was exceptional when it came to our pets. Our Border Collie was walked on a regular basis and well looked after. Also, one of the cats had been recently diagnosed with cancer. It must have put considerable pressure on her. Ashley handled the matter admirably, taking Hollie to the vet when treatment was necessary and reported back to us on her welfare. It meant a lot to us while ... MORE
TRACEY (Cleveland QLD, Mar 2019 - 2 weeks 4 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Ashley arrived on time and took great care of our puppy, Mia. She took her for beach walks and communicated via text with photos. Ashley also left our home clean and tidy, with kitchen clean, dishwasher unpacked and bedlinen washed and folded. Also the white tiled floors were spotless. Thanks Ashley for all you did to give us peace of mind while we were away.
DAN AND MICHELLE (Surfers Paradise QLD, Feb 2019 - 5 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Ashley was the perfect house sitter. Our pet adored her and she treated our home and dog like it was her own. Would highly recommend Ashley to take care of your property and pets. Thanks Ashley, until the next trip!
YVETTE (BIRKDALE QLD, Dec 2018) From Aussie House Sitters
It was my pleasure Yvette. Spike was a joy to look after in your lovely home.
Ashley has taken great care with our house, yard and pool as well as very special care of our three dachsunds. She is efficient and reliable and was able to care for and manage our dogs with a terrific attitude. I highly recommend Ashley as a house and pet sitter!
ALEX (Lota QLD, Dec 2018 - 1 week) From Aussie House Sitters
Thank you Alex. Look forward to Thursday and seeing the puppies again.
I had the pleasure of having Ashley housesit for me last year. She was a great house sitter. My house was spotless when I got home and my cat was very happy. Ashley truly is a 'cat whisperer' and managed to give my cat his tick and flea treatment, without him hissing at her! No small feat. I am fortunate in that Ashley will be housesitting for me again soon.
JANELLE (Victoria Point QLD, Oct 2018) From Aussie House Sitters
Thank you Janelle, love looking after your home and cat. He has the best personality. Looking forward to spending time with him again this month.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Ashley to look after your home and your pets. Ashley was such a pleasure to deal with and looked after our house and fur pets so well. They loved having her and we loved knowing she was with them. Ashley is just an absolute delight to have looking after your home.
PAULA (Redland Bay QLD, Oct 2018 - 6 days) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Ashley looked after my 1,5-year-old Staffy dog when I went overseas for nearly 7 weeks. During that time Ashley and I communicated frequently (also before the actual sitting start date- she is just so lovely) by text-messages, photos, and video-clips which gave me a peace of mind. I learned that not only did she look after my dog extremely well; she also took care of a few incidents relating to the car (flat tire) and the house (the sink stopped working). When I arrived the house was sparkling ... MORE
ANNE (Emu Heights TAS, Jan 2018 - 1 month 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating I totally recommend Ashley to anybody who is looking for someone to love, spoil and look after their dog. Ashley looked after our very spoilt Samoyed for 3 weeks and we came back from holidays to a very happy pampered dog. Ashley went out of her way to look after Yuki and took her out in her car for trips to the park. I received updated videos and photos of Yuki which was very appreciated. Upon our return we found the house was neat and tidy. If you are after a wonderful, caring dog lover ... MORE
KAREN (Thornlands QLD, Dec 2017 - 1 week 1 day) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Ashley took care of our home and 2 cats and dog for 3 weeks while we were overseas and we can't thank her enough. We received regular updates on how the animals were doing and on our return came home to a lovely clean house! Thank you Ashley, it was great to know our home and pets were in such great hands!
KAREN (Wellington Point QLD, Dec 2017 - 2 weeks 6 days) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Ashley did a great job looking after our two small dogs and our house while we were away. From the time we met her until we returned we had confidence that all would be looked after well and it was. The communication over the month was easy and we returned to 2 happy puppies . Thank you for your great care and attention ,Ashley.
GRAHAM (Birkdale QLD, Oct 2017 - 4 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Ashley was a fantastic house sitter, looking after our 2 dogs and cat while we took a short break. She clearly loves animals and looked after ours like they were her own with genuine affection. She is a lovely lady who I would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a reliable and caring house sitter.
GYL (Capalaba QLD, Aug 2017 - 4 days) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Highly recommended.
ROBERT PENNELL (Birkdale QLD, Jul 2017) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Ashley looked after our house and 2 pussies in July this year. She was fantastic. The house and garden were well loved and looked after and looked great when we returned. Our 2 pussies were nurtured and cared for by Ashley and very comfortable with her. She is a great communicator and kept in regular contact with us to make sure our minds were at ease whilst we traveled.A trustworthy, warm and kind lady who we will continue to ask to look after us.
BRUCE & WENDY (Wynnum QLD, Jul 2017) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Just want to say how great it was having Ashley look after our 2 pets (Cavoodle and Cockatiel)and home for a few weeks whilst we were overseas. It was wonderful to receive an occasional update message from Ashley on how the pets were going. Ashley did everything we asked of her and everything she sakid she would. On our return home, house, garden and pets were all perfect. Thank you so much Ashley for your wonderful care.
JOHN (Manly West QLD, Jun 2017 - 2 weeks 4 days) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Ashley took care of my 3 small dogs as well or better than I would. I could tell that they were very happy while I was away. The house and the garden was very well kept and clean. I recommend Ashley as a sitter to anyone in the Redland area
DAPHNE (Thornlands QLD, May 2017 - 4 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Ashley has house sat for us two weekends in a row. Our animals (2 dogs, 1 cat and 3 chickens) were all well looked after, our house was looked after and Ashley went the extra step of washing a load of towels for us that we hadn't gotten around to as well as washing her bedding and towels that she used. A real pleasure to have Ashley sit for us. We know our property and pets are in great hands. We look forward to having Ashley sit for us again and know that we can trust Ashley to look after ... MORE
SHARON (Mount Cotton QLD, Apr 2017 - 3 days) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Just had Ashley Housesitter for us. We couldn't have asked for a more sincere, honest and above all a caring cat sitter for our elderly cat and our Marine tank. I would not hesitate in recommending Ashley to be a house sitter for anyone.
CARMEL (Cleveland QLD, Apr 2017) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating I have to say that we were so happy with Ashley we would like to keep her all to ourselves for future sits. Absolutely wonderful - house kept perfectly and animals very happy did not want Mummy to return. Ashley coped with the pool and flooding just as well as the professional pool man who comes. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a sitter. You would not be able to find any better.
