About Charlie

I am a professional freelance literary translator and proofreader (CMC Translations). The location-independent nature of my work means that I can work anywhere, as long as I have an internet connection. Since 2018, I therefore decided to travel and house-sit full time, as it provides me with the freedom to travel and explore new places, as well as the company of animals!

I absolutely adore animals and have wide experience of looking after cats, dogs and other pets, but my current nomadic lifestyle means I cannot have pets of my own. This is why I love to house-sit and meet a variety of furry friends in new places!

Working from home, I spend a lot of time reading and translating, and so I offer great company for your pets – they will not be left alone for long periods of time. I like nothing more than snuggling up on the sofa with a cat (or dog) and a good book. I also like to potter about the place, tidying and cleaning (it makes a nice break from the words), so you’ll find your house will be pretty spotless when you get back.

Credentials:

  • I have been police checked – I will be more than happy to provide a scanned copy of my DBS check
  • on request, and proof of ID (copy of photo ID).Read reviews from happy clients at my website - Search 'Anywhereperson - housesitter'.

    I hope to meet you and your pets soon!

    Charlie was friendly and really easy to deal with. She knows her stuff and I have already booked ahead with her to make sure we can use her again

    • I’ll stay in your home while you’re away, ensuring your property is secure and your animals are happy.
    • I can look after up to two dogs and any number of cats.
    • Includes feeding, walking and grooming pets (and cuddles as required!)
    • Usual household tasks such as watering plants, taking phone messages, putting out the bins, and light cleaning/tidying are included. Your house will be as you left it!
    • Gardening or other deep household cleaning or tidying jobs can be included for an extra fee, by arrangement with the homeowner. Please get in touch to discuss.
    • You can avoid putting your pets in kennels (much cheaper and more comfortable for your pet) PLUS come home to a clean and tidy house. A win-win solution!
