We found Sue to be very easy to communicate with; being both friendly and down-to-earth. The house was spotless upon our return, which meant we could just relax after our long drive home. Our cat was very contented and was even searching for Sue for a few days afterwards; which was very much out of character for him.MICHAEL (Camberwell VIC)Sue has cat-sat and house-sat for us several times, and I can unreservedly recommend her. Sue is trustworthy, takes excellent care of pets and houses, and we can be sure that everything will be fine while we're away from home.

Hello,My name is Lucinda, I live and have grown up in Melbourne.I am quiet, respectful 36 year old and a lover of all animals. It would be a honour for me to give your animals, home and garden love and attention.I have been house sitting full time for over a year now, I absolutely love the interaction with all types of animals.I have a police check and positive endorsements/references that I can provide you with.Please do not hesitate to contact me with anything further you would like to know.Lucinda
Hello!I'm a 28 year old single professional female - I am house sitting between now and January to save money for a year of travelling abroad :)(And it's tricky to get such a short lease!)I also wanted to explore a few different areas, as I intend to buy shortly after I return home, and it would be good to have explored as many different suburbs as I can.I'm originally from the Eastern suburbs; I grew up in Wantirna, but have rented in South Melbourne, Southbank, Glen Iris and Ringwood.I have house sat in Croydon, and am currently housesitting in Chirnside Park.Previous housesitting experience:3 weeks at a family home with a Golden Retriever, fish, and a cat.4 nights at a house with a mastiff puppy and cat.3 nights at a family home with a cat.3 months at a family home with a Border Collie and Siamese cat.Growing up we had 2 small dogs, rabbits, fish and mice.I've been employed for 8 years at ESTA as a Calltaker and Dispatcher (000).As a shift-worker on a rotational roster, I live a relatively quiet existence, especially while on shift. I'm studying medical transcription and terminology as I'll be working remotely as a transcriptionist while I travel, so my time off is spent studying, brunching with friends, visiting my nephew, sisters, and parents, swimming, walking, watching Netflix series and catching the occasional movie. It would be lovely to fine a home that allows me to stay in one place for an extended period of time, as I'll be moving around so frequently while I'm travelling next year. I am so appreciative of the opportunity to house sit, that I show my thanks through caring for the home better than as if it were my own.My intention is for the home owner to always return to their residence in better condition than when they left it.I am conscious of power / water / gas usage, and would be mortified at the thought of the homeowner receiving a large bill, so I would endeavour to keep the costs down to the best of my ability. As a shift worker, I understand the importance of sleep, and would never incur any noise complaints from the neighbours.I am able to provide references upon request, and any other information you would like to know :)
I have just sold my beautiful 5 Br family home in Heathmont, Victoria as everyone has flown the coop but me. My new unit is not ready until April 2019 so now approaching the later half of my 50's I have the time and opportunity to try something a bit different. I am responsible, reliable and honest. I have a longer term house sit until mid July so am looking for something after this.Although not having any pets currently, I have over the years had dogs, cats, budgies, guinea pigs, hermit crabs, stick insects, mice, rabbits, sheep, a very stubborn Shetland pony, ducks, geese and fish. I can attend to all the needs of your pets as well as giving givng them the care and nurturing that you want them to have especially while you are away. I am a regular house sitter for my daughters both whom have dogs, cats and chickensI am single, clean, tidy, organised and a non smoker. I have a current Police check, Working with children check and can supply references.
Hi. My name is Lian and I have been house sitting for around 3 years and truly love the experiences I have encountered through my ‘house sitting’ journey. I am a professional woman who works in the finance sector and absolutely love animals.I am single, a non smoker, with no children and fully aware that your pets and home are assets which need to be respected, so my aim is to look after your possessions as if they were my own. I travel with my beloved dog Gypsy who is truly a dog Whisperer. She will gladly become a companion to your beloved dog and play and entertain while you are away. Happiness for all assured! References can be provided.Contact me if you want to know more! Look forward to hearing from you
I am a single woman of retirement age, a non smoker, non drinker, no drugs, no partying (yes regarded as boring by some!) person who would love the chance to look after your property and animals while you are away. I have a collection of contactable references which I can make available if they don't happen to come with my application and I do hold a Police Check which is dated 2016.I am a home body type of person. I will be at home most of the time keeping your animals company. I might go out now and again to look about or go shopping or visit the grandkids if they are near but mostly I will be staying in your home.I house sit full time all year round but I do not have a camper or caravan (hope that will change one day). I travel with whatever I can fit in my very small car so I am looking for house sits that offer accommodation. I try to be as self-sufficient as I can be and even travel with my own Halogen Oven. I also carry my own pantry supplies and fridge and freezer supplies (so I need some space left for me in the fridge and freezer!). I try very hard not to use your supplies at all but If I am caught short and need something I will replace anything that I use more than a little bit of. Happy to use up though (and not replace) anything left in the fridge which will go off before your return! (like milk, yoghurt. salad items, fruit and veggies etc)I am happy to look after any animals, birds, fish. Even donkeys and horses if they only need to be fed and watered and maybe an apple now and again over the fence. With dogs I am probably better at looking after the smaller/medium kind because I may not be able to handle larger dogs if they need to go for walks and they would prefer to walk me instead of the other way around. Quite capable and happy to throw a ball etc (if they fetch ball) to give them plenty of exercise if you don't mind them not actually going for a set 'walk'. I am also a cat lover and can usually get on with any shy reluctant ones. It is really just a matter of patience and love. If you are worried about how your cat may be with me I can highlight which references to contact where I looked after shy and timid cats successfully.Don't mind if I have to look after chooks or aviaries of birds. Would really like your place if you have wild birds and animals coming near. I do not mind regional areas at all. In fact I would like the chance to go to isolated or 'out of the way places' or to go 'bush' but remember I do not have a 4WD vehicle.Don't mind looking after a swimming pool and keeping it leaf free as much as possible but I will not likely make use of it myself!I don't mind watering gardens, lawns and pot plants etc. If I have to water by hand I am hoping it will not be an extensive or large garden that takes a long time to complete. More than happy to turn on and off sprinklers etc. I try to take shorter length house sits these days to avoid the need of mowing lawns and weeding gardens. Happy to take longer sits if lawns do not need to be maintained by me (happy to water them though). (Sorry I just can't do what I used to be able to! The shoulder is just not up to cantankerous pull start mowers and my back complains at bending these days!)I always endeavour to leave your home as clean and neat as you left it and look after it as if it were my own. I do have my sewing machine with me and like to sew sometimes (not all the time) so I might set up my machine on a table (I always put a towel down to protect your table) I also like to have internet. Very happy to pay for my own mobile internet if necessary but I need you to be in an area where I can get decent reception. All the better if I can use your wifi. I don't download movies or music.As you can see I will not be suitable to some house sits and I have tried to be entirely truthful here so if you think I will actually suit your needs and are interested in having me as a house sitter please email me with as many details as you can. I would very much like to have photos of your property and animals. I would prefer an email telling me about your place before a phone call. It gives me time to take it all in before we speak in person.Where possible I go out of my way to travel to you for an initial meet before the actual house sit so I can see first hand if your house sit will be suitable and you can make up your mind if I would suit your needs. Sometimes this is not possible because of the distances I would have to travel but I if I can manage it I will.If you have read down this far I thank you very much and hopefully I will hear from you soonKind RegardsMargaret

Reviews can be read on Tripadvisor property no 3676647.As cat owners jointly for 40 years, we would be happy to care for any cats or other small pets.In the summer, we spend a lot of time in our garden and are self sufficient in vegetables for a good part of the year and would be happy to water and tend a garden where required. We both like reading and going for not too strenuous walks and are interested in bird watching and other wildlife. Our other great interest is good food.You have our assurance that your house would be cared for as our own and any minor maintenance attended to.References can be supplied on request.

I am happy to take care of your home, animals and plants, giving you peace of mind whilst you are away. I own my own home so understand your requirements; having been both a home owner requiring a house/pet sitter and a house/pet/plant sitter, I know exactly what is required when caring for your home. I am a single woman, non-smoker/drinker, '50-ish' and work as a figurative ceramist in my own studio. I love peace and quiet and enjoy my own company. I have lived in the country for several years, and coming from the coast, miss walking on the beach. However, country/coast sitting is fine as I love to travel and explore new places. I am houseproud and would consider it a privilege to care for your home, pets and garden. Being a responsible, reliable and considerate person, I would take excellent care of your property . My availability is flexible with both personal and professional references available on request.

I was a solicitor but am currently a full-time postgraduate student writing a thesis and looking for accomodation away from the distractions of home (and noise as it is currently being renovated). I am married, have two grown up sons and I live in the Blue Mountains at Glenbrook and have four cats. We have had chickens too, but sadly we have very crafty and persistent foxes. : (( I have house sat twice in two homes in Mosman in Sydney, in both cases having a dog to care for. I don't smoke and I have been complimented for leaving holiday rentals cleaner than they were when I arrived! I am a bit of a cleanliness freak, and can get a glowing reference from one of the people I house sat for fairly quickly if required. I would love a home with pets as I am an animal lover, and I enjoy gardening too.

We have two children; our son lives in Nottingham with his girlfriend, and our daughter is married and lives with her Australian husband just outside of Fremantle, Western Australia. We are both non-smokers and enjoy walking, reading, spending time on the water and generally being outdoors.We love spending time in Fremantle with our daughter and her husband who are expecting their first child in September 2018. Although we are able to spend time with them in their beautiful home, we also appreciate that it is important to give them time to themselves and we would love to explore other suburbs around Perth; to this end we are looking to undertake house sitting whilst we are in the country. For 2018 we are planning on being in Australia for September, October and November. We have undertaken house sitting previously, in a home where we thoroughly enjoyed looking after 3 gorgeous dogs, two birds and a pool and we are able to provide a number of references. We are extremely tidy and very reliable.We would love to look after your home and garden as if it were our own and to take care of your dogs, cats, fish and birds with love and attention. Being fit and active, we are more than happy to walk dogs as per their usual routine.

Hi! Laura and Charlie here. We are so looking forward to our next adventure. Here is a little about us and why we want to house sit for you.We have been married for nearly 3 years and looking forward to growing our family. So currently it is just us as we don't have any pets either. We are currently living next to my grandfather in Greystanes. We have LOVED and absolutely treasure our time here. Charlie for 4 years and myself 9 years. Our situation has changed as my grandmother sadly passed away in January and is time we move on from our beautiful home. Our next plan is to rent and then buy in the Camden, Campbelltown or Southern Highlands area. Back where I grew up and have many family and friends. We do need to come back in November to care for my Grandfather so have a gap in September and October where we can house sit for you. Charlie works for our family business in Ingleburn and I work with a laptop and WIFI. I could work from home or the Ingleburn office. If your pets are used to having someone home most of the time we will be a perfect fit. We are tidy and clean. Actually Charlie is REALLY clean and tidy (lucky me) we often talk about starting a side business cleaning. We spend the weekends relaxing or doing day trips. We take a lot of pride in everything we do and look forward to loving your home and pets just as you do.
