based in both the US and the UK
My name is Henrietta Cartwright and most of the time I sell beautiful paintings to interesting clients, I also love to house sit.
I have owned and cared for my own houses all over the world including London, Bavaria and Ohio.
I grew up with pets: A King Charles Spainel, a black Labrador, two black cats, a hamster, a budgerigar, several ponies, goldfish and guinea pigs, I have a huge extended family who have all sorts of other animals as well, so if it's not on the list, just ask, you never know.
I love to cook and have a passion for phalaenopsis orchids.
It sounds like a terrible cliché but I really do love to travel, meet new people and experience new things.
from the tiniest London flat to the most enormous country mansion.
my friends all tease me about being like Mary Poppins. It would be an honour to come to your house and get things straight or keep them as you wish. You can also add housekeeping extras, all those frustrating jobs that you never get to, like hanging pictures, having your linen cupboard organised or getting your filing done.
Looking for someone to house-sit for your property can be a stressful experience and also nerve-wracking. However, when connecting with Henrietta, I only felt reassured and greatly appreciated how sensitive she was in taking care of our home. She asked very thoughtful questions, and showed such respect for staying at our place. In our situation, I also appreciated that Henrietta took an extra step of arranging to have a cleaner visit our home at the end of her stay. Wow, to return to a home well taken care of and cleaned was such a nice treat! We would definitely recommend Henrietta and also use her services again.
