About Karen

Hi,

Thanks for reading my profile 🤗

I'm a retired Primary School Teacher of 35 years who escaped the city for a Seachange 6 years ago.

Since then I've become a grandmother to 6 gorgeous grandchildren from our 3 children. I love travelling to spend time with them.

I am a fit and healthy and exercise regularly. I have my own (almost) new SUV and love driving.

 I keep fit by doing Aqua Aerobics twice a week and Pilates 3 times a week plus walking. I'm a very healthy & avoid dairy, gluten & processed foods.

I own & run a very successful BnB Unit and manager another BnB House since 1998.

Travelling is one of my passions & I have travelled to the UK, France, Italy, SE Asia, China, Fiji (often) & NZ (frequently). Last year I spent 4 weeks in Canada, Alaska & US. This year we're off back to NZ. 


We have 2 beautiful cats, Mischka, a tortoise shell Persian who is deaf & totally blind and Teddy, a naughty & energetic Ragdoll. We have always owned animals from Fish, Guinea Pigs, Peacocks, Chickens, Hermit Crabs, Budgies and Cats & Dogs. 

All of our children have dogs which I regularly sit when they're travelling; an Australian Shepard, Samoyed & 2 Japanese Spitz. I take them for walks, feed them & give medication. 

I housesat 2 cats for 1 week on the Sunshine Coast late in 2023. This also involved feeding & looking after 10 chickens, collecting eggs & watering the extensive vegetable gardens. 

I understand that your pets are important, much loved, members of your family and that you both may feel anxious when you are away.

I'll ensure that they are looked after with cuddles & walks whilst you are away on holidays, working or family commitments and I'll send regular updates to you and your family.

I am free to HOUSE SIT anywhere on the GOLD COAST & I would love to housesit for you & your pets.
