Looking to Rent or Sit


Wanted in British Columbia Canada

Listing #140506

An ‘Empty Nester’ looking for something to take care of.

Hi there.
For 18 years I raised my daughter on my own and now that she is going to be away for her third year at University in Kingston, Ontario I am looking to try out something new. A new place. A new job. I am a theatre teacher part time/contracted who also teaches “Voice” in various schools which gives me the freedom to adventure to different cities. The reason why I am looking to house sit is because I pay for my daughters tuition and living expenses at Queen’s. Therefore, would prefer not to have two rents (but would be also willing to pay a minimal rent for myself). As a former landlord would attest, I will treat your home with the upmost respect as though it were my own. I love and care for plants as well as put my cleanliness OCD to good use. Your place will stay pristine. I rarely like having guests over as my home is my sanctuary but prefer to be social outside of the home. I am happy to be responsible for whatever you need while I am looking after your space. I pride myself on my reliability and am extremely self sufficient. I can care for children, dogs or wee pets but am unfortunately extremely allergic to cats.
I am happy to offer references upon request.
