My name is Noni and I'm a local Melbourne resident, growing up in the Bayside area. My employment is in the television production industry, where my role is Production Manager. I’ve raised two beautiful children, both now independent and in their 20’s. We've had pets through the years which for a family is a great source of love, togetherness and responsibility. As well as my great job in the TV industry, I'm now enjoying the next chapter of my life as a house / pet sitter, while home owners take time away, but want to be assured their home and much loved pets are being looked after.
Why I want to house sit
To experience and enjoy living in different areas around Melbourne and to give my special care and attention to the most special aspects of other people's lives, their family home and most importantly their much loved pets.
I'm a professional, reliable, responsible, single, non-smoking female, who has much experience in home and pet sitting. I've raised two beautiful children and their various pets. My daughter has an Alaskan Malamute, so I'm no stranger to bigger dogs, as well I have pet sit many adorable smaller dogs. Our family cat is a 19 year old domestic short haired grey, and she is healthy and still quite active, despite her years.
One of the many experiences with house/pet sitting was a two week house sit for a lady who was going away for the first time in many years as she was not able to leave her two dogs, due to their age, in a kennel. Not only did she have a much needed break, her little dogs had a great break being with me.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
I have no hesitation in recommending Noni Hawley as a live-in house/dogs sitter.
I found Noni's online profile at a time I was desperate for a "get a way''.
We met a couple of times to discuss the dogs and the house and we chatted like old friends.
At the same time my two Maltese dogs got to know her. I had no hesitation in handing over the keys to my house.
I have two Maltese dogs that thrived under her care and she kept to all their routines as I described to her. Noni kept me updated on their welfare while I was interstate.
I felt confident that Noni would treat my housel like her own home- and she did - it was well cared for.
Walking and caring for other people's pets is a joy, as animals give back what you give out.
Gardening is a much loved hobby of mine, so you can rest assure that on your return your home surrounds will look lovely and kept.
If while you're away you need anything specific done I'm only too happy to pitch in and make it happen.
Another house/pet sit I have done was for a month with an adorable 5 year old cat. The lady who I was sitting for has a large organic veggie and herb garden. This was an absolute joy for me to look after. As most cats do gorgeous Luna loved to garden with me.
This is the reference from that home owner.
To Whom It May Concern,
During our last overseas travel in June/July 2015, Noni house sat our home for
one month. Noni also looked after our 5year old cat Luna and was by far one of
the best house sitters we’ve ever had.
Noni is a very caring person with strong work ethic, we cannot speak highly enough
of her. Noni treated our home with the utmost of respect, and lavished love and
attention on our pet Luna.
Noni is very easy to communicate with, which was reassuring for us. We were
confident that she was taking good care of the house, keeping it safe and secure and
treating it with respect. It was especially wonderful to receive regular emails while we
were away, showing how very happy and relaxed our cat was.
Our garden and home were looked after perfectly, Noni even spent time weeding our
vegetable garden and we returned home to a spotless house. Waiting for us there were
fresh flowers in a vase on the table!
We definitely recommend Noni as a house and pet sitter without reservation, as we
know that she will look after your home and possessions with great care and respect.
