Mature Professional House Sitter

50, Professional

I love life and I love adventure! I'm a mature, trustworthy, and reliable house sitter from Los Angeles. I work remotely, so I have the flexibility to travel and enjoy different locations. I love animals and have enjoyed having multiple fur family members of my own over the years.

I understand the need to know your home is well cared for when you are away, and I can provide that peace of mind for you. I will treat your home with the care and respect it deserves. I am organized, clean, and very neat, so when you return your home will be exactly the way you left, and a perfect sanctuary to relax and unwind after your travels.

I would love to hear from you! I check my messages regularly, so please reach out and let's discuss when I can house sit for you.

Raini did everything exactly as instructed. She took great care of our kitties and house as if her own. She went above and beyond to support us with extra care, was in regular communication and returned our house and car to us in pristine condition. Thanks, Raini! Would love for you to sit for us again in the future.
ANGELA ( California, Jul 2023 - 4 weeks)
Raini is a great house/pet sitter. Our cats were well taken care of and the house was immaculate (including the fridge) when we returned. She is a great communicator and very responsive to all communication. We would absolutely use her again, should the need arise.
SANDY ( California, May 2023 - 3 weeks)
Raini was wonderful in looking after our house and our dog. The house was maybe cleaned when she left than when she arrived! She even organized my containers with their lids! Pretty cool. Lenny really liked her too. I would use her again. Thank you Raini!
MAGGIE (Albuquerque New Mexico, Apr 2023 - 2 weeks)
Raini is THE BEST SITTER—conscientious, considerate, responsible, trustworthy, friendly, excellent communicator—the list could go on. Even from our initial phone conversation we felt comfortable that Raini would take excellent care of our home and, most importantly, our pets. She arrived early so we could have a relaxing time getting to know her and acquainting her with the house and dog routines. Raini drove us to the airport and picked us up on our return. When we returned home, our two ... MORE

This was our first experience with hiring a pet sitter and to say we were a little apprehensive was an understatement. But Raini was so spectacular that we were quickly reassured and had a wonderful time on vacation without worrying about a thing! She was professional, reliable, compassionate, and super responsive! Our dog loved her and was very well taken care of. I would highly recommend Raini if you are looking for someone to care for your pets and leave your home better than it was before ... MORE

Can't say enough about Raini!! She exceeded out expectations on every level. She is considerate, communicative and treated our home like her own. She was great with the pets and went above and beyond to keep our bird feeders full and put food out for our family of raccoons. AND the house was immaculate when we got home. Raini is a real gem and anyone would be lucky to have her house sit. I hope We can talk her into coming back!
LISA ( Oregon, Feb 2023 - 6 weeks 4 days)
Raini is an excellent caretaker. She communicated quickly and also kept the house very clean. The cats were happy and so were we. I definitely recommend her!
ALIDA ( Oregon, Jan 2023 - 3 weeks)
It was a pleasure to meet Raini and have her house/pet sit for us. She took excellent care of our cat, house and car. We returned to a happy cat clean home and car. Raini communicated very well before, during and at the end of the sit. We were able to enjoy our vacation confident that everything at home was in good hands. Wouldn't hesitate to have her sit again, .
ALISON ( Oregon, Dec 2022 - 4 weeks)
Raini was a wonderful house-sitter and took excellent care of our beloved doggies. She was cheerful and upbeat about all the tasks we set before her, followed doggie instructions carefully, especially with the administration of medicines for our dogs. Our house was clean and orderly when we got back, and our dogs were healthy and happy. Raini was a reliable communicator and sent us pictures and updates on our dogs to keep us up to date. She was flexible and helpful in accommodating our needs ... MORE
MICHAEL AND CAROLINA ( California, Nov 2022 - Ten days)
Count yourself extremely lucky if Raini comes to take care of your pets & house. Her flight was canceled getting here. She kept in ontact w/us. After all the trouble to get here, she was so positive. Our 100 lb lab was walked daily, our 16 yr old cat already misses her. Our bedding & towels were washed (which I never would have expected) & our house was cleaner than when we left. She kept us informed when we were gone. Raini is welcome anytime to stay with us as a friend. Thank you so much. ... MORE
ARMAND ( Texas, Nov 2022 - 4 days)
We are the luckiest people in the world and have truly blessed to have met Raini Hatchett through a video chat. Due to a sitter cancellation, we were forced to post our ad again in search for a dog sitter for Bernie. Little did we know what was all wrapped up in Raini Hatchett. She is a genuine loving, trustworthy, and beautiful woman. She helped calm and train Bernie during our 3-week absence. She informed me not she would have our house cleaner upon our return, which it was - spotless. ... MORE
DIANE (Goodyear Arizona, Oct 2022 - 3 weeks)
Raini was a peaceful and quiet house sitter. She left my house very clean and all linens washed. Raini also cared for my very elderly dog, Solo. He was a lot of maintenance and several unexpected issues came up as this is the first time I've left him since pre-covid and since he has lost much of his mobility. Solo was sick for the first week that I was gone but I came home to a relaxed and happy animal despite many changes to his diet and many middle of the night bathroom runs. Raini handled ... MORE
JEN ( New Mexico, Sep 2022 - 3 weeks)
After planning a short notice trip I was desperate for a house sitter and was thrilled when Raini said she could accommodate our short notice. She took excellent care of our home and our dog, Brie, who didn't even miss us. I would highly recommend Raini as an excellent house and pet sitter!
SUSAN ( Arizona, Sep 2022 - 3 weeks)
Raini had great communication with us, especially leading up to the trip which helped me feel comfortable, and we came back to a clean house and happy pet. She even handled an unexpected minor medical issue, and was very responsible about the stay even when the weather was less than ideal.
JOLENE ( California, Sep 2022 - 4 days)
Raini is exactly as advertised: mature, responsible, trustworthy, neat, and professional. We loved that she was able to work from our home to be here with our dog during the day, and she left the house cleaner than when we left. We had no worries leaving our house and dog in Raini's capable hands. We'd love to have her back again for another trip.
SHERI ( California, Jun 2022 - 1 week 2 days)
It was our absolute pleasure to have Raini house sit for us. Raini is an excellent communicator and extremely detail oriented. Raini took meticulous care of our home, and above all, warmed our home with her warm and creative presence. Raini will be at the top of our list for when we need a house sitter again. Raini, thank you for choosing our home and taking such excellent care of it. Through this experience, we are also grateful for a new friend in our lives!
ANTARA ( Hawaii, May 2022 - 3 months)
Although circumstances prevented us from spending more than minimal time together, we felt that we "connected" to Raini right away. We were confident that our cats and home were in excellent hands., In fact our cats took to her right away. Due to an unexpected death in the family, we asked Raini to extend her time with us and she readily agreed. We have never been away for so long a period (8 Apr - 4 Jun), but we never worried about her. or the house/cats. She picked up the mail regularly, ... MORE
LARRY ( New Mexico, Apr 2022 - 8 April - 2 June 2022)
Thank you so much for such a positive review! I am glad you two made it back safe and sound. I look forward to connecting with you both again for future sits.
