  • Melbourne, Macedon Ranges, Ballarat, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

I'm a 44 year old Melbourne woman. I'm honest, clean, quiet and respectful of other people's possessions and space. I love and understand animals and will conscientiously look after your plants and pets. I have much experience looking after animals and homes and can provide references and a police check.

The primary reason I would like to house sit is to lower my overheads. I've recently started a small business that I'm trying to get off the ground. It's progressing well and it would be a huge relief to have a block of time where I wasn't paying rent. This would give me the time and space to focus on growing my own work. A huge gift.

I'm a responsible person and a clear, direct communicator. I'm available to come out to meet you and your animals at anytime.

I hope to hear from you. Thanks.


  • Melbourne, Geelong

My main philosophy to pet sitting ~ “I like to keep your pets’ day to day routine as much as possible while you’re away”.

I am a single 40 year old full time professional working in the cbd for dhhs.I am a senior Service Planner. I do some of the planning that builds, expands and refurbishes public hospitals across metro and rural melb. I typically work Monday to Friday with 1 day off site (working from home). I have fairly flexible working arrangements!

About me!? I am fairly introverted and prefer to be a home body. I have 2 dogs of my own but they live with my parents atm. I love Netflix, movies, going to dinners/brunches, gym, catching up with friends and family.

I love all animals too - I am a genuine animal lover and experienced pet sitter. I have looked after a number of rescue dogs in addition to my own over the years- I was a committed foster carer. All of my dogs found homes quite quickly after some TLC, food, care and behavioural training! One of the best experiences ive had. I also sponsor rescue dogs in Bali and provide funding support to both cats and dogs that need help (vet care, rehabbing/rehoming etc).

Why am I doing this?
1. A friend of mine house sat on happy house sitters for a number of years and said it was a great and fun experience.
2. I’m trying to save a deposit for a house all on my own!
3. as you can probably tell, I’m mad about animals.

I Can supply references upon request (family friends work colleagues etc). If you need me to undertake a police check I can do that too!

Look forward to hearing from you

  • VIC

I am a 50 year old single male recently moved back to Victoria from overseas. I don’t smoke or drink. I have a full time job Monday to Friday 8am to 3.30pm. House sitting interests me so I can save money and it almost feels like going on holiday living in a different house in a different area. I love all animals and have had dogs all my life and cats for half my life. I love to get out the house and walk dogs, I have looked after a dog with diabetes and blindness therefore giving the dog insulin injections twice a day. I am very neat and tidy and house proud. I could give references on request.


  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. NW suburbs, Syd. Upper N Shore

I am a single retired lady 74 years young (don’t look my age luckily) a non smoker and responsible home owner.
I like to keep a nice home and consequently would carefully look after yours. I am responsible, reliable and considerate and would leave your home as clean and tidy as I found it.
I have previous experience of house sits and house exchanges in the Sydney area. I am happy to supply references as well as Police Clearance Certificate.
I have grown up with cats which I adore but sadly lost my last ginger cat. I have looked after friends cats in the past so would love the opportunity to look after yours for you.
I am happy to talk on Skype or WhatsApp.



We have recently returned to Australia after a long career in education in the United States. We have been housesitting in various locations in Australia while we decide where in Oz we'd like to settle permanently. In addition to housesitting in Australia, we had our own pets in the U.S., and looked after our neighbors' homes, plants, and pets while they were out of town over the years. Our acre property in the U.S. was in the high desert, and had a swimming pool, so we understand the maintenance involved. We would strongly prefer to be near public transport as we do not yet own a car in Australia. We have a quiet lifestyle, and will treat your home and pets with care and respect. References and police reports are available.

Dante & Maha

  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. Southern suburbs, Syd. Upper N Shore

We live in an apartment in Bondi Junction and love to explore new neighborhoods. We love being in nature, listening to the ocean and watching the sunset. We are super clean, mature, reliable and respectful of other peoples' home and belongings.
We love pets but are not able to keep any in our building, so house sitting is a great opportunity for us to share our love with new pet friends.
We are both professionals working in the financial services industry, Maha is 41, she was born in New Zealand and grew up in Tasmania. I work from home, am 40 years old, was born in Italy and moved to Australia in 2006, We love to go to the movies, and stay fit with gym, swimming and yoga.

Fernanda & Fabrice

  • ACT, Melbourne

We are a responsible, non-smoking, non-drinking couple based in Melbourne.

Fernanda is a 41-year-old biologist, Portuguese teacher and a gardener. Fabrice is a 41-year-old, IT consultant and a social worker.

Fernanda and Fabrice lived in Canberra for almost five months, when Fabrice was working at ACT Health as an IT contractor.

In Canberra, we lived in three houses as house-sitters. We had excellent feedback from the owners.

We are back in Melbourne and we have decided to keep house sitting, as we really enjoyed the experience.

We are tidy and respectful individuals, so you will find your home in the condition in which you left it upon your return. We look after the pets with love, as they are ours.

We can provide house sitting, work and personal references and also police checks and IDs.

We appreciate the value of caring for a property, especially when it is not yours!


  • Brisbane

I'm a non-smoker, mature, single, quiet and responsible.
Because I'll be working and may not get home until after dusk, I would not have time to walk a dog. I love cats and they seem to like my company too. My very spoilt elderly cat had to be put down over 2 years ago due to a neurological disease and I miss her dreadfully. I know lots about caring for cats, and happy to take instructions to care for rabbits, guinea pigs, fish and birds.
I'm low maintenance. I need to be able to wash and iron clothes, have public transport close by and somewhere safe to park my car. Shops are not a priority.
I have a current police check and great references from past pet-sitting assignments.

  • NSW

Single, non-smoking, quiet, animal loving house-sitter available...everyone catered for - from greyhounds to great danes!
From a country background, I was brought up with all sorts of animals and am a certifed equine sport masseuse.

My first house-sit was supposed to be for one weekend and ended up being a four year stint:))

Currently I work Mon-Fri evenings on my laptop (home based.)

In addition to this, I do a couple of morning and weekend evening shifts in the city so approx 20 hours a week I would be out of the house, so not suitable for anyone requiring a sitter to be home 24/7.

Refs available upon request.

Preferred Location: anywhere handy to transport connections.


  • Melbourne

Hi. my name is Sue and my partners name is Lloyd. We have recently moved from Perth to Melbourne where my 3 daughters and grandson live. I am a retired Teacher Assistant and Lloyd is a retired University Lecturer. I own my own home in Perth so I am used to caring for a home and gardens. We are very neat. houseproud, health conscious, energetic, and most important we both love dogs. We will be housesitting over the next 12 months until we sell up and buy a place in Melbourne. I have always owned dogs and my last companion was a beautiful cocker spaniel who was with me for 14 years. As we are retired we would be around the house a lot of the time to take your dog for walks, keep him company, and give him lots of cuddles. I am happy to chat on the phone and answer any questions you may have. Cheers Sue

Melissa & Anita

  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

Hi there - although we are no longer house sitting full time, we occasionally apply for sits so we can enjoy some animal company due to not owning our own pets.

We are Mel and Anita who have been together for nearly 6 years.

We live a healthy lifestyle, are non smokers, vegetarian, keep a clean and tidy house and rarely drink. Both professionals who work full-time in the inner suburbs of Melbourne.

For 12 months leading up to our property purchase in St Kilda, we house sat full time and completed a number of pet sits ranging from 9 days to a 2 month sit for a colleague. We have had the pleasure of looking after cats, some tropical fish and one household which had two dogs and two cats. We treat each place we stay at like it's our own and take on all of the responsibilities of house sitting, including mowing the lawns, weekly cleaning, washing and walking dogs etc.

As we are property owners, we understand the concerns associated with leaving your home/pets in someone's else's care, but rest assured that they will be looked after to a high standard. Our references indicate this. We both also have current Police Checks for peace of mind.

G'day! I'm Carly - I'm a non-smoking, 36 year old Marketing professional. I am a huge animal lover - I've always owned large dog breeds (Rhodesian Ridgebacks, German Shepherds, staffys, and some smaller 'oodle breeds! I have also owned and looked after numerous cat breeds (Burmese, Siamese, tabbys of all ages). I lead an active and healthy lifestyle - including walks, runs, pilates and yoga and my 9-5 job allows working from home but keeps me busy. I completely love travel - often travelling to Newcastle, Brisbane and Melbourne for work. I enjoy the opportunity to get out and explore but very happy to veg out and chill - especially with new furbabies! References available on request.

As at September 2019 I have the following availability: 15 January - 20 February 2020 (Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne).


  • ACT, NSW, Alice Springs, Darwin, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

Preference for long sits (3mths+). I am open, however, to discuss your sitting needs for shorter sits. Preference given to SYDNEY during 11Jan-16Aug20, then MALTA from mid Aug20....and any other long sit locations too, so, send me a message! I've sitted continuously since Mar2015 with the bulk of my testimonials on & & If you feel I'm ideal for your needs, I'd be pleased to talk and meet (where possible) with you. I can connect you with my former hosts and provide my Australian police check record to put you at ease - just ask and I'll email you what you require.

MATURE LADY, HOME BASED (Internet Business Owner)
LIVE IN SITTER FOR HOSTS - Preference for long sits
PREFER LONG SITS 3-12MTH (for shorter sits, always ask me as openings often come up)
I Understand the Value of a Great House & Pet Sitter as I was a FORMER HOST MYSELF FOR 6yr as a HOME & PET OWNER

Hello - I am at a time of life where I am available to be the brilliant house and pet sitter you are looking for. I am a single professional, self-employed Australian with two adult sons (pursuing their own careers). With few family demands, I no longer need to be based in one location. I enjoy the freedom that house sitting offers where I can be a devoted animal lover to other people's pets while enjoying your location. Being agile and moving to different cities suits my Internet based (email traffic, not heavy downloads) work very well and as I have lived in almost all of Australia's capitals & various cities overseas, I am very much at home wherever I am.
I will consider any sit with a preference for long house sits (3-12months). I am open to being in any location, city or region…here are some of my favourites: NZ, NYC, Spain, Malta, Central America, Chile, most countries in Europe. I am self employed as a facilitator, business growth specialist and internet business mentor. I conduct my work 'virtually' via the Internet & Skype. This means I can work anywhere as long as I have fast, reliable Internet & phone reception. Both are critical requirements for me to sit for you. I always try to meet you in person where possible and certainly via Skype in all other cases. It's paramount for you and for me that we understand and respect expectations of one another and that your home and pets have the care you are entitled to.

Why I Want to House Sit
Through past house sitting experience & as a home & pets owner with my own regular house sitter for 6yr, I recognise the value of house sitting to pet lovers & security for your home while giving me flexibility & variety in lifestyle. I have travelled extensively over the years and am resourceful and socially inclusive. Your pets and home will receive my responsible and loving attention and I will be proactive by staying in touch to keep you informed about how everything is going without being a burden. You can learn more about me via my LinkedIn and business websites which I'd be happy to send you, along with my CV, biography and character referees, for information. I live simply and cleanly and will be very respectful of your home, belongings, security and privacy. I don't own a car anymore, so, I’d welcome the use of a car if possible please, especially for overseas or remote/ distance house sits.

My Experience
I promise warmth, openness, transparency and genuine care of your pet family and your home. My 'home based' work allows me to offer a strong presence & companionship for your home & pets. I have been an Australian Army Officer with a top secret positive vet security clearance (21yr), consultant to most Australian Commonwealth Govt departments and 3yrs as deputy chair and director Crime Stoppers & National Trust boards. I'm presently an 'Angel' with the Pyjama Angel Foundation. I pride myself on maintaining high integrity, sound judgement, balance, reliability and being a proactive communicator. I'm also very loving and gentle with animals. You can depend on me to keep you informed and to make decisions about your pets and home with your priorities in mind. I am comfortable with all types of animals and those with special needs. I will reach out to people in your immediate community network, as advised by you, if needed. I've been a home owner for 30+yr, an animal lover for life and I know the value of a quality house sitter. I've had the joy of 6yrs experience as a host to my own house sitter, so I fully understand and respect the responsibility that comes with this position.

My aim is to give you absolute peace-of-mind while you are absent while having a cost effective home solution for myself (as a 'local'!) in a new environment. I look forward to getting to know you and your pet family. My previous hosts are all happy to chat with you and I can email you their references if you wish. Wherever possible, if I am in your city, I will always try to meet with you and your pets in advance of the sit so we know that 'everyone' is comfortable. Warmly, Lisa

NOTE: It's always worth checking in with me in case I am free due to hosts' change of plans. I like to make contact in advance with potential hosts so we can see if we're a fit (for your pets, you & me) in advance of a future sit. Let's chat!

  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. NW suburbs, Syd. Southern suburbs, Syd. SW suburbs

My name is Carol and I am a relaxed mature age single snd a non-smoker, who loves animals.

I would look after your pets to a high standard as I have lots of experience and genuinely care for animals. have worked for “Don’t Fret Pet” in 2007/8 when I lived in Sydney.,where dogs were looked after in my home in St Peters and ‘Dog’s Holiday Havens” in Hobart in 2011-2013. I have looked after other peoples’ places in the past including their pets, their gardens/lawns and pot plants which were a dream to look after as I have a degree in horticulture. I am clean and tidy and respect other peoples’ belongings. Please see my references that are attached..

I have also done some volunteering for dog walking at the Dog’s Homes of Tasmania and was a foster carer for the same company. This entailed walking a series of dogs per day and giving them care as they needed it - such as grooming and massage or making sure they had play time in a garden pen so we could throw ball and have one-to-one quality time with lots of pats.

I am an Australian citizenship and arrived from Scotland with my family as a young girl.

Please see references attached from: Danijela Hlis (author); I looked after Danijela’s house and garden on many occasions when she travelled interstate on business and collected her mail for her.

Also see my reference from Glenda Logan - owner/manager of ”Dog;s Holiday Havens”in Hobart Tasmania where I worked for 2 years looking after dogs in my own home while dog parents went on holiday.

See another reference from Deborah Porter - for whom I did housesitting and looked after her 3 delightful Chihuahuas and garden and indoor plants in Dundas in NSW.

I would take very good care of your house and your pets. When I go away Mack my 5yr old long haired chihuahua stays at a pet minders place in Cairns called Cool Pups, run by owner Lisa Baker- Mack gets on with all the dogs there - I will include a reference on the site from Lisa soon as well. I hope to hear from you soon and we can have a chat about your specific requirements. Yours sincerely Carol Smith

Abi & Michael

I run our business online and work from home, so I am able to keep a close eye on your home and ensure your pets are extremely well cared for.

House sitting provides us with the flexibility our lifestyle requires. We love to travel and experience different places but it is also wonderful to have a base for a while and discover somewhere new. Also, we are keen pet lovers, particularly cats so this enables us to babysit them! We also have experience in puppy and dog training and have looked after dogs from Greyhounds to Cavoodles and others in between!

We are well travelled and renovated houses in 5 countries, so DIY tasks are easily undertaken. We are caring pet lovers, my partner is often called The Cat Whisperer! We are fit and love walking, aiming for 8km per day but can do less if this is too far for your dog!

Look forward to hearing from you
Abi and Mike
