Alison & Bob

  • WA

We are a retired couple from Bunbury in WA, We like to house sit occasionally to be near family in Perth from time to time prefer north of the river but will look at other locations. We have uploaded our airbnb reference to show we are respectful and caring in looking after other people's homes. We love cats and dogs and will consider other animals who need a sitter. We would like to meet the pets, home and the home owner prior to taking on a position and are happy to travel to meet you and your special friend/s.
We are non smokers and very clean and tidy and can supply further house sitting references if wanted

I began sitting in 2011 so my experience is varied and interesting. I have just returned from 6 months in the USA sitting as well as a guest with home owners who are now my friends and ‘family ‘. I sat for these Home Owners during my 11 months in the USA and Canada in 2015.
I am a mature single woman, non smoker, clean, have my own vehicle and I don't have any pets of my own.
Below I have added my testimonials from my most recent sits in the states.

PS I am the sitter interviewed by A Current Affair in Happy House Sitters media area. I have changed some what as walking dogs and checking out the environment around my sits has helped me become more healthy.

I've been putting off this review because I don't even know where to start. This was our first time using a housesitter and it took a leap of faith to give it a try. Well, we leapt with the perfect person. Francien provided a flawless service, from keeping in contact before and during the sit, taking care of our beagle's medicine and weird food habits, and generally spoiling them so rotten they were disappointed when we came home! Not to mention she assimilated and got to and around Chicago from out here in the suburbs like a pro! The only problem now is that I can't imagine another sitter could possibly rise up to the bar she has set. She is coming back to the states in 2017 and we plan on being first on her list.
AMY (Naperville, Illinois, Nov 2015)

My husband, 2 children and I had some wonderful adventures as we traveled around our beautiful country this past summer. It was an incredible journey and one our family will never forget. We were able to enjoy 39 days on the road with peace of mind knowing that our home, yard, pool, and most of all, our many pets were being well cared for. Francien Daniels Webb is a true blessing. Francien is a retired art teacher from Australia who has spent the last 3 years traveling the world taking care of people's homes and pets while the owners are away. Why does she do it? She loves animals, traveling and experiencing new things. Our family has loved spending time with Francien and have asked her to come back, even if just to visit. Francien does not expect reimbursement. As a homeowner, you must take care of the house bills and supply enough food for the pets. Feel free to Google her name. You will see that many people agree she is an incredible woman. If you are planning to travel ask Francien to look after your home and pets.. you will not be disappointed.
JULIE (Georgia, Jul 2015).
2018 I am here as a guest from the 5th June until the 10th June when the family go on a 6 day holiday then I am back into guest mode until I reluctantly leave 'my family' and all their pets, including Rosie the Tarantula, she was there in 2015 too.

Our housesitter Francien was an AMAZING asset to our family. She brought a demeanor of confidence and reassurance that everything would be fine. She is calm and very easy going. She is there if you need her and does her own thing when you don't. From the minute she entered our home it felt as though she had been a part of our family always. She is a GodSend!!! She has a way with animals that is impressive. She loved our cats and tortoise as if they were her own!!! She followed my specific requests and took it upon herself to clean and help out whererver she saw it appropriate. She took care of my little girl Sphynx (all 3 are Sphynx). My little Jennifer was sick and it didnt phase Francien. She was not bothered by anything. I truly could go on all day about Francien. She will meet the requests you have and add a lot extra! She is generous with her talents and a true joy to have around. We had her stay before and after our trip and honestly hated to see her go! She IS Mary Poppins to us!!!!!!!!! If you are having ANY reservations or have ANY questions please do not hesitate to contact us! We can alleviate any concerns you may have.

2018- I will be there the third time this year when I prepare to leave the USA.

SIT DATE: Mar 2018
Francien was the perfect house and dog sitter for us! She is friendly, reliable, and responsible and did everything we asked for the house and the dogs. She really likes dogs and took such good care of them you could tell they were sad to see her leave at the end of her visit! She left the house cleaner than when she got there. We enjoyed meeting her and chatting with her and highly recommend her as a petsitter. Thank you Francien!

SIT DATE: Apr 2018
What a godsend Francien is. I could tell after just a short conversation of her love for animals and she came through with my 4 neurotic, persnickety cats! Thank you Francien, for taking wonderful care of our babies and keeping the house clean. Actually, it seemed cleaner when we got back than when we left. I hope our schedules match up again, because you are a jewel.

SIT DATE: Apr 2018
Francien watched my miniature pinscher while my family was in Europe. If you are looking for a true animal lover to watch your furry friend look no further! Francien is the real deal. She snuggled and slept with my min pin nightly and even took her out on the town to Starbucks and the dog park while we away. She bought her treats and dressed her up in a bandana. When I checked in, she sent me adorable photos of their adventures. Francien left our house cleaner than we left it. She watered and tended to our plants even though we didn't remember to ask. She is a lovely house guest/sitter. We really appreciated the cute "scrubbies" she knitted and gifted when we arrived home. I did not worry once about my pup mourning my absence and the house was well taken care of as well. I highly recommend Francien!

SIT DATE: May 2018
Francien is the most wonderful sitter I could have ever chosen. My fur kids absolutely adore her, and she is a true petgrannie. I have had the pleasure of being with her for a few days before I leave, and we have become dear friends. She is kind, compassionate and truly loves what she does. I am leaving my fur kids in her care with complete peace of mind.

Rick & Melanie

  • South Eastern, Central, Central Coast (Qld)

Hello people!

We are Rick and Melanie, all the way from The Netherlands, on our second year visa in Australia.
We have been travelling the world together for the last 2 years and now on the east coast around the border of New South Wales and Queensland. Riding around in our 4x4 with rooftoptent, camping along we go.

We are both very open and social, love to surf (still learning though), like to do long walking trails and enjoy the beautifullness of Australia.

We're hoping to help someone out over the periode of Christmas and New Year. For us it will be nice and relaxing, away from all the holiday busyness. For you it will be great to go away for the holidays and have fun outdoor with no need to worrie about your pets/house. A perfect win - win situation we think:)

We are a very trustable couple, together for already 7 years. We will treat your place with respect, give many hugs and attention to your loved pets and we'll keep eveything nice and tidy during your time away.

We hope we can become a good match with someone! And if you feel we are, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Maybe we'll see each other soon.

Rick & Melanie


  • Melbourne


My name is Tommy Helber, and I am a German native. I will be travelling to Melbourne, Australia from September until November in 2018, as I have been invited to act as Head Coach of the Australian National Fistball Team. As fistball is a relatively unknown sport, the team is hoping to offset the large cost of my travelling to Australia by finding me free accommodation at a house in Melbourne. I am in my 50s, but I am fit and able (I run each morning). I do not smoke or drink, and will only be using the house to eat, sleep and (of course) look after any pets that are in the home! My English is very good, but my fistball friends in Australia have offered to help me organise any house sitting jobs. Of course, if you wish to speak to me directly, I can be emailed or via Skype in Germany. I will treat your house and pets with the upmost respect, and thank you for considering me!


  • Central Coast, Hunter Valley

I’m a single professional woman who, because of the nature of my work, prefers solitude during my down time. I’m new to house sitting so at this time am looking for the opportunity to do short term sits. Because I’m wanting to do sits during periods of leave from work I will be able to spend as much time as needed caring for your pets.
At this time I do not have police check however a clean police record and current working with children’s check are a necessary requirement of my employment.

  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

I am a retired woman living on the Sunshine Coast. I love and care for all animals but have probably related more to cats. I have lived with cats as part of my family over many years. Although I do not currently live with a cat, I regularly care for my short- haired Oriental grandson, Louis and have recently successfully carried out a house/cat sit in Melbourne 2017/2018.

I have friends and family in Melbourne and strong links to Melbourne and like to visit several times each year.

I am a homeowner and very house proud and would care for your place and cats as if they were my own. I am a non smoker and live with a very high standard of cleanliness.

I will care for your cat/s first and foremost with lots of love and cuddles. Also collect mail, put out bins, water the garden and pots and keep your place secure.

Any further questions you need answered, do not hesitate to contact me. References available.

Kind regards,

Chantal & Job

  • Sydney, Central Coast, North Coast, South Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast, Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. NW suburbs

Hi there,

We are Job and Chantal, an active and happy couple in our mid twenties who are exploring the world together! We met each other while travelling and are already house sitting for a while in Melbourne now :) For us it’s a great way to meet the locals and to live the local Australian life and to have animals around us (what we loooooove) and the explore the great city of Melbourne.

At this moment we are only looking for a house sit in January 2019, the final housesit(s) before we leave this beautiful country and are going to explore New Zealand together. Job is working fulltime in all suburbs of Melbourne and I will finish a full time job at mid December and are now looking for some casual work till we leave Australia.

Just a bit more about us:
Job (23) grew up in a family with one older sister in the Southern part of the Netherlands. He grew up having dogs, cats, chickens and fish as pets. He started travelling in November 2016 and has seen a lot of countries in Asia and lives in Melbourne now since April 2017. He still has a sausage dog at home that he looks forward to see again when we come home!

I, Chantal (28) grew up in a family with 2 younger brothers in the Northern part of the Netherlands. We always had a lot of pets like dogs, cats, chickens, fish, hamsters and birds. I also did a lot of horse riding and shared the care of my own horse with my aunt. When I lived in the Netherlands, I lived in my own apartment and had 2 cats for several years that I took care of. Unfortunately I needed to find a new owner for them when I started travelling in January 2017, but their new owner still sends me pictures now and then and they look very happy with their new owner.

We both quit our jobs for this trip. We worked full-time for several years and realized there was more for us in life. So we decided to give up all of our possessions and go and see the world! I already did some house sits in the region of Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne (references available!) and together we now already did a lot of house sits in Melbourne.

If you are looking for a house sitter in Melbourne, we would love to hear from you and have a coffee and meet! Just send us a message and we'll be in touch.

We have current references and Police Checks available and we promise, you won't regret taking us into your home and taking care of your pets.

Hope to see you soon!

P.s. the animals on the pictures are not travelling with us.


  • Brisbane

I am a mature, honest and responsible female, currently a home-owner myself of an investment property. I have recently moved after a rental lease period expired and put my possessions in storage until I purchase a property for myself. House-sits of long term period preferred but any period considered.

I have previously owned and lived in my own home until moving to Brisbane in 2012 and would care for yours as if my own.

I am an animal lover and have considerable experience with all types of animals having run my own small farm in NZ and volunteered at Taronga Zoo for 2 yrs. I was an owner and rider of horses in my earlier years. I had a very loving, elderly female cat whom passed last year and miss not having a pet to care for.

I am very fit and agile with a great interest in road cycling and mountain-biking. Gardening and lawn-mowing would be no problem if needed.
I can provide references if required . A Police Clearance is available if required also.

Hope to hear from you soon. Tracy

A caring house sitter

Judith: 67, Teacher/Lecturer

Hi I am a retired Educator, having taught students from Prep. to University level in NSW, Qld (city & remote) & the Torres Strait, NT remote area, Taiwan, China and Vanuatu. Therefore, I have current Police & Working with Children checks in a number of States. My upbringing, lifestyle & belief system have resulted in me being a: non- smoker, reliable, honest, hard working, friendly & viewing each new situation in life as an adventure waiting to be lived out, type of person. I regard others homes and property with great care as I am sure they would want me to treat them, their home, their pets etc. with respect and kindness.
Raised on a farm & enjoying most animals & gardening I find I can still do the work, but ... a little slower. In my spare time I like to swim, bike ride, organise my stamps & coins, take photographs & listen to music.
I have attended Universities/Colleges in NSW, Qld, Hong Kong, China & Taiwan, receiving degrees & certificates mainly in Education but with some in business & specific computer programmes. Much of my life has been teaching primary & high school students, teachers, Indigenous Australians & Chinese educators. Being able to speak Mandarin Chinese I have been enabled to teach in China as well as teach Mandarin in schools in Australia. As well as working in education, I have managed a small, business, worked with cattle, built fences & grown many vegetables.
From 2012 to 2018 I have lived in my Motorhome which has made working and house sitting in any state easy to attend. I began house sitting in 2016. At present (May - July 2018) I am farm sitting in Victoria. I will then move to Cairns (August - October 2018) to house sit, then Brisbane (November) These sits do not require me to use my Motorhome, it can be stored.
I enjoy longer house sits but am happy to do shorter ones of a few weeks or a month. City or country residences are fine.

A satisfied farm/home owner:
"Judith house and farm sat for me for approx 8 weeks, she looked after my goats and chooks, fed them twice a day, kept the yards clean to perfection, My home was kept in immaculate condition and Judith blended into the small community, she is a very friendly, warm women, If you want a house sitter who respects your pets and house as her own, I would highly recommend Judith and hope she will come again..."

  • Brisbane

Hello. My husband and I are mid 50's. All 3 of our children all live in Brisbane now and we are from Tasmania.
We are looking to house sit to be able to be near our children for a while. I am a Registered nurse and my husband is an ex tradesman.
Both of us are non smokers and only have the occasional social drink. We have owned our own home for 30 years and would look after yours with great care and consideration as we do with ours.
We have our own property in Tasmania with 6 Acres of land so we are familiar with care of the land. We have previously owned many dogs and cats and they were very much members of our family and we would treat your pets as if they were our own too.
In addition to that I have been a foster mum to a number of cats and kittens who were between homes, from the Cat Centre of Tasmania. Something I have loved doing.

We look forward to talking with you about looking after your home.

Hi! I'm a non-smoker, clean, considerate and reliable. I have been house sitting on and off for a long time and understand the anxieties house owners have about allowing a stranger into their home.

  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Southern suburbs, Syd. SW suburbs, South Coast, Murray & Riverina, Snowy MTS, Southern Tablelands, VIC

We are a retired couple whose home is in the UK but spend nearly half the year ( Dec-April) in Australia. We love animals but can’t have any of our own at the moment due to travelling and would love to share and care for someone else’s. We are fit, active, clean and tidy and keen gardeners. I grew up with dogs and David with cats and foster a friends two dogs when they want a break. We have no experience with chooks but are keen to learn. We have spent most of our UK winters (Australian summers) in Australia since our retirement, mostly in South Australia where we have family. Although we have seen many parts of Australia on various holidays we are keen to stay in one place for longer to get to know the community, its people and it’s culture. We are very fit and active. We belong to golf clubs both in the UK and in Australia. We enjoy walking and T’ai Chi. We both sing with Sing Australia and I sing with two choirs in the UK. We both enjoy folk, jazz and classical music. I also enjoy pastel painting and, when I’m lucky, I sell a few. I go to the gym regularly and also read and knit a lot. David enjoys cycling and walking and is a keen philatelist and numismatist. We cannot offer references as we have never house sat before but we can provide testimonials and/or supply names and contact details of people who will give references. I have had numerous police checks in the UK (every three years) due to my nursing, health visiting and child protection work but not one that is currently up to date. David was an accountant/auditor. We really want to see and experience more of Australia and plan to be in Australia from the beginning of December until the middle of April.

Hi everyone!

We are Cande and Lea, two argentinian friends of 23 and 22 years old who will be doing working holidays in Australia next summer (only part time jobs).
We are currently studying Psychology (Cande, 4th year of the career) and Medicine (Lea, 5th year) in Argentina but for this summer holidays we decided to travel to Australia to have a new life experience while we can learn about a different culture and also visit new places and meet people. We previously did this kind of experience in San Francisco (USA) where we worked in an ice cream store and a restaurant (Bubba Gump).
We are warm and friendly girls and also animal lovers!!! I (Lea) have a cat and a dog (Beagle) and Cande has another dog (Golden) named Kira (you can see them in the pictures). We love them with all our hearts and really enjoy sharing our life with them. Since all of them are in Argentina with our family while we are gone, we believe that it would be great if we could have pet company, and of course play and take care of them.
None of us smoke. We are very responsible, neat, honest and reliable people. We are living by ourselves since 2014 so we are used to maintain our house clean and organized.

We are available from December 11th,2018.

We'll be very excited for taking care of your pets and house!

Annamarie & Karina May

  • Sydney

I'm a professional with keen interest in working on development projects as well as travelling and working overseas.

Houseminding gives me the opportunity to pursue these interests.

And combining this with my love of domestic animals like cats and dogs completes our day!

I love meeting people and get to know languages and culture from all over the world!

In the past, I've minded friends and family's homes whenever I could to help out.

I'm a non-smoker, like the beach, do regular yoga and still continue to pursue my love of media work through writing and coaching when I can online. 

I'm happy to supply references when needed.

I'm a proud homeowner who has just rented my place out after renovating it so I can go away and do more places exploring. I truly understand the importance of taking good care of your home and also your pets in the home, as I've been a homeowner for 9 years now. I also have police checks which are asked for now in all employment in NSW.

My daughter Karina May may also be joining me with the house sitting. She works as environmental development worker in Asia and also currently visiting Sydney. She is working on short term work in Bondi.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

I sold my house in 2016 and have been house-sitting or traveling since. I used to have a 40kg GSP, so can handle any size of dog. I love all animals and most animals like to sleep on me - particularly cats. Also used to grooming duties and fish-feeding.
I am used to regular house and garden maintenance as I had 35 productive fruit trees, 2 veggie patches and a swimming pool, Also quite willing to perform seasonal tasks. I will care for your house as if it was my own.


  • NSW

Single, non-smoking, quiet, animal loving house-sitter available...everyone catered for - from goldfish 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, police checks etc available upon request.

Preferred Location: anywhere handy to transport connections.
