Megan


  • Geelong, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

Hi! My name is Megan and I'm a respectful and reliable 31 year old primary/high school teacher and copyeditor. I have house-sitting and pet-sitting experience in places with and without animals. The animals I have looked after are dogs, cats, chickens, fish, worms (yes, worms!) and being a country girl, I grew up with chickens, guinea pigs, dogs, cows and sheep.

I'm new to the Geelong area and would like to spend some time around the area before I get a place of my own in the area. I'm very flexible and adventurous so I'm happy moving around a bit and trying new things. I LOVE dogs (and other animals) but haven't been able to get my own yet, so I love the idea of house and pet sitting.

If you have any questions about me please feel free to get in contact!

  • Mackay & Whitsundays, Cairns, TAS

Hello,

I am a for fun singer, pianist, and composer and writer living with my wife Jamie, a psychologist in Cygnet for a year. We recently purchased a lot in Beechford where we plan to build a home over the next year.

In the meantime, I would like to see more of Tasmania and possibly the mainland and thought it would be fun to housesit other's pets. I am an animal person and love cats and dogs. I've had Inca, a German Shepherd, Hunter, a German Shorthair pointer, and Tai and Chi, two Himalayans and grew up with lots of dogs.

Yesterday, we went on an art walk and one of the artists we visited had a rescue dog that had been abused. The artist told us, "she's very shy with men." After thirty seconds of scratching her chin, she was licking my face. I guess that's a pretty good canine endorsement. :)

I am quiet, a non-smoker and drinker, tidy and would prefer to housesit in country settings. I have always cared for rental homes as if they were my own.

Katelyn & Jason


  • Melbourne

Traveling married couple from USA. We are very neat, well organized, and minimalistic. We are new to house sitting platforms, but we have done a couple of housesits now and have stayed in many homes of 'friends of friends,' including time spent minding the home ourselves or with their children and looking after pets if needed.
Looking to stay in Melbourne area for a while as we have been moving around the country a lot.
Jason has worked in the trades for a while, so he can offer simple home maintenance as required. We both have light gardening and farm work experience, so we can look after any plants.
As we are traveling, we are sad to not be able to have any pets, so we would love to care for yours as if were our own!

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

Hello, I am very keen to house sit in Sydney, a city which I've visited many times and which has much to offer. My daughter lives there too, so another reason for frequent visits. I recently stopped working as a university lecturer and currently I'm writing up a Phd at The University of Sydney. I am fastidious, tidy and would treat your home with care and respect. I have owned a black labrador and a chihuahua/terrier, very different in temperaments and personalities but equally lovable. I also like cats and I could cope with birds. I'm health, safety and security conscious as is my husband, Rob. We are vigilant about closing windows and locking doors when we go out.

In our spare time we have many interests including walking, yoga, writing, reading and visiting France most years. We like to socialise but we're not party people, preferring quieter dinner parties. I'm a sophisticated, gracious person who treats people with respect and consideration, irrespective of their background or culture. I like to think that I'm non-judgmental. I would look after pets with care and also be diligent in watering plants, putting out rubbish and keeping the place immaculate so that the homeowner returns to the home he/she left behind.

I would be the main housesitter but my husband, Rob, may join me for some or part assignments.

In New Zealand police checking is different from Australia in that the individual cannot request a check on himself/herself but we have had police clearance in the past when hosting international students. I can supply references from people who have known us for a long time and know how we live.

I'd be happy to answer any further questions. Thank you for your consideration.

Heather


I am a mid 60s professional, (teacher) who owns my own home that I take great care of, in Castlemaine Victoria. With my daughter I share the dotting care of 2 doggies that enjoy a daily fixture of walking and being played with vigorously each day. My career life has been in education and I have held substantial roles of responsibility as a primary school principal, educational consultant in New York City, district curriculum project officer and community educator. Now I am enjoying transitioning to retirement by working part-time in district primary schools coaching teachers in the teaching of literacy.
I have done pet sitting through Happy Housesitters, Aussie Housesitters and Trusted Housesitters and have references on those sites which you could read by searching my name.
As loved family members we have had them all - dogs, cat, chooks, guinea pigs, rabbit, doves, guinea fowl, horse and lamb. I am experience handling farm stock such as sheep, goats, alpacas and horses. Of course as a teacher I have a Police Check and Working with Children Check and if there was such a thing as a working with animals check I would pass with flying colors!
In order to reassure you of my commitment I would promptly furnish you with evidence of my flight bookings. I would welcome the opportunity to offer you further references, career resume, clarifications etc.

  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Central Coast, Northern Rivers, Bris. S W suburbs, Bris. Western suburbs, VIC

I recently returned to Australia after 20 yrs living and working professionally in Japan. I would like to help those needing good, reliable and diligent pet and house minders. I have often used people for this service myself so understand how important it is to find a good and dependable minder, I love all animals and more importantly I am trustworthy and know how to keep a home in good order.

On a personal note, I am married with children, own 2 great dogs and a new kitten; currently work in contract roles on a casual basis with Defence in Melbourne, so this allows me to have alot of free time to assist people when they need it most. Thank you. Paul and Makiko

Jenny


  • Sydney

I’m semi-retired and type medico-legal reports at night for a doctor for about 2 nights each week. I'm healthy and am a responsible, organised, clean living, non-smoking person, who is very security conscious and would love to look after your home and pet(s).
Basically I’m a cat lover – my last friend was Jasper, a Blue Burmese, who became ill and had to be euthanased just before his 16th birthday. The previous cat was Tangles, a Tonkinese, who came via the Freebies column in the Trading Post when 6 years old. Unfortunately she became ill with hyperthyroidism when aged 17. Before Tangles, I had two other cats for a total of 30-odd years.
I love little dogs but as I have always lived in apartments, unfortunately, little dogs are not always welcome. Over the last eighteen plus months I have looked after quite a few small dogs, i.e. a Cavoodle and Maltese X dogs and one in particular, Rosie, who I have looked after many times. Rosie's mother, Naomi, is very happy to provide a verbal reference for me. Currently I look after three Siamese pussy cats, who live at Mosman, a Birman pussy cat, who lives at Northbridge as well as a Cavoodle, who lives at Dee Why.
I live in Neutral Bay and don't drive. I have a National Police Certificate, No. NCHRC-2010-36949, a reference from Adrienne Pegler, Veterinary Surgeon at Cremorne Veterinary Clinic as well as both personal and business references. I have a Pre-Paid Mobile Broadband.

Full marks to Sue for coming at such short notice. 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, Apr 2018)

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. We always come back to a clean house and a happy cat!

Kathryn


  • 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,
Kathy

Asher


  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. NW suburbs

Hi,

I'm Asher and I am 34 year old single female.

I work Mon-Fri as a Nurse at the Royal Children's Hospital close to the city and love the lifestyle of being close to cafes, parks, trams, trains and shops.

I have been renting in Nth Fitzroy for the last 1.5 years with my sister and her boyfriend. They have decided to move out together so for the moment I am living with my parents in Croydon Nth until I can find some fantastic housesitting gigs. I housesat through this website throughout 2013/2014 and loved the opportunity to meet different people, there pets and different areas around inner Melbourne. I have also done a lot of housesitting for friends, their families and friends.

I absolutely adore animals of all kind and have housesat birds, fish, cats and big and small dogs. This care included walking, grooming and playing. I have maintained big and small gardens, large and small homes in all different areas around Melbourne.

I am a clean, happy, trustworthy 33 year old and am looking to house/pet sit in areas where I can be closer to work and the CBD. Travelling back and forth from Croydon Nth takes up a lot of time and money and while I have the opportunity to have my things at my parents home, house sitting is a great option for me. References are available.

I am available to house sit from the 1st July 2016.

Josephine & Ross


  • NSW, Darwin, QLD, TAS, VIC, WA

Update!!! Ross needs a new hip so we had to advise all our pet sits we couldn't sit for them this year. Better to pull out now while they still have loads of time to get new sitters than mid way though a sit. We love what we do! We will be back in action in 2019 so watch this space!
Hi, my husband and I are recently retired teachers 62 and 63 who have lived and worked in the same area for 35 years. Of course as teachers we had regular police checks and we can also provide lots of references. After retirement we went to Canada, Hawaii, Far North Queensland and Tasmania. Yes we have caught the travel bug! We also had sits in Queensland, NSW and Tassie and would love a sit in NT, SA, and WA!!
We are friendly, reliable and caring and now that we are retired, our children have grown up and our beloved pets passed away we are rattling around our house with time on our hands. We love animals and always look after all our friends and neighbours pets, houses, gardens and mail when they are away. One of them suggested pet and house sitting as it involves travelling, animals and gardening! As a retired couple we are available for any length of time and we can plan to house sit everywhere in Australia for the next 12 to 24 months after which time we hope our children will provide us with grandchildren to spoil. As my husband Ross is a very keen fisherman we try for locations close to good fishing areas and he takes his fishing boat.
We will take meticulous care of your house, mail, indoor plants, veggie gardens and lovingly look after dogs, cats, birds, fish, chooks, rabbits and guinea pigs. We are more than happy to be in touch with you prior to the pet and house sit and we can also give you updates during your trip so get in touch with us any time to discuss your needs and travel dates as we will try to accommodate our time to suit your needs.
We prefer the northern areas of Australia during the winter months and escaping the cold Victorian winters. Ross is a keen fisherman and gardener, I adore reading and writing and tend to be more of a home body and we both really enjoy seeing new sights and meeting new people. You can leave knowing we will take extremely good care of your pets, house and garden and while you’re away. Ross and I are looking forward to getting to know you and giving your pets our love and attention. Prior to handover we would prefer a written list of your requirements and instructions and of course contact details such as your mobile number and email address. We know the importance of trust in this relationship and can assure you of our honesty and love of animals, in fact we've found the hardest part of pet sitting is saying goodbye to the pets because we grow so fond of them. Luckily for us we have lots of repeat house sits which makes us very happy.

  • WA

I travelled east in 2015 after having lived in Perth for 18 years. After a couple of years away I have now returned to Perth and am now living in a beautiful area 60kms north in a lovely town of Yanchep. I am wanting to do more house-sits and so if you don't mind me and my beautiful little cat coming with me then please don't hesitate to get in contact. I enjoy house sitting and looking after dogs, cats, birds etc.

I am an empathic person and love all animals (maybe not snakes and spiders!) and would treat your animals lovingly. I want to house-sit because I don't know where I want to settle. I am a very organised person and if left details of what is required I will gladly carry these out. I do not smoke and would rather be in a non-smoking environment. I am a very clean person and know how to keep a house clean, neat and tidy.

I like a nice garden and will make sure that the sprinkler system is working properly or that the garden is getting watered if it is dry. I can also look after a pool too! I am a friendly person and would love to meet you and your pets, and maybe also the neighbours. I have had dogs and cats as pets and years ago a bird also. I would treat your pets as you would treat them including loving them to bits!

There are two excellent references on me but I would also like to say that I have volunteered with Lifeline, working as a crisis supporter for people in need, a few hours a week. To do this empathy and caring are needed which I have in abundance, which can also transfer to pet and house-sitting.

For your interest, this is my home I have recently sold: http://www.realestate.com.au/property-house-wa-leeming-118633839

In our 6 years together we have travelled and experienced many different homes, we are competent in caring for properties and dealing with any issues that may arise. We also have two dogs currently (stay at respective parents houses') and have looked after cats, chickens and fish. Thus we have a lot of experience in looking after multiple pets simultaneously.
We are saving to buy our first home and will care for your house, garden and pets as if they are our own.

  • Reduced Contact

Hi, my name is Julie. I am a happy, healthy semi-retired animal lover, who is mature and reliable. I own a small business that I run from my desktop. As a house sitter, this means that I can provide a constant presence to watch over your home and give your pets the same company, care and attention that you would yourself. I am available to sit right across Australia.

In addition to running my own small business, I have also managed a faculty across three campuses and been a busy travel agent and tour guide in my working life. Employers have entrusted me with valuable assets, large sums of money and the well-being of other people. I am reliable, trustworthy and well organised; mature but young at heart.

At home, I keep a very tidy house. I actually enjoy the comfortable routines of housekeeping and seeing the house look as neat as a pin. I never move anything, I am very respectful of a homeowner's space. When you return, you'll find everything just as you left it.

In addition to taking good care of home and beloved pets, I am happy to look after mail, provide regular updates and all the other things that will give you peace of mind while you are away. I keep in touch regularly by sending messages and pics of your little ones, as any of my referees will attest. I love gardening, am handy with a mower and all the day to day maintenance needed to keep outdoor areas looking great.

I am free to travel on flexible dates and take up long or short assignments.
I am health conscious without being obsessive, enjoy exercise and am a non smoker.
I have a police check and references. You will be able to call and verify references. These contacts can be provided on request.

"Julie looked after our house, our old blue heeler, our cat and 3 chooks for around two weeks whilst we were overseas in March 2015. We came home to a lovely clean house and very happy and well looked after pets. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Julie and would certainly love her to look after our house again" - Sharon Vincent Batemans Bay NSW 2536

Hi, we are a couple from Poland. We are video and photographers who love to travel.

We are non-smokers and very, very tidy people. We just started our trip through Australia, and we are thinking about staying here for 2 years.
We would like to try house sitting as it could be good way to get know this beautiful country. If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask or call us.
We'll be happy to talk with you!

We'll keep your pets happy and home beautiful. We're a couple in our 40s, together for over 20 years, with excellent references and current police checks. We're non-smokers and have no children or pets. We run our own digital media business and work mostly from home so we can be there to feed and love your pets and give them all the care and attention they'll need while they are missing you.

We're fully booked for 2018 but will be available in inner Melbourne, within ~ 5km of the CBD, on the following dates:

~2 to 12 January 2019
and 20 January to 26 April 2019, and
26 May 2019 onwards.*

After arriving from Tasmania in August 2015 we discovered house-sitting is a great way to experience Melbourne whilst we decide where to settle ourselves long term. We've been looking after pets full-time in the Fitzroy, Carlton, Northcote, Brunswick, Abbotsford, Richmond, Hawthorn, and Albert Park neighbourhoods ever since.

We love all animals, especially dogs and cats. We've been owned by cats for most of our lives and have cared for birds, fish, bunnies, and reptiles, too. We successfully raised a puppy from 8 weeks to 18 months for Royal Guide Dogs Tasmania while nursing an elderly cat through her dotage with twice-daily medications, and we've since looked after other guide dog pups-in-training when their full-time raisers needed a break. We've also had a full roster of pampered pet dogs that we've minded on a regular basis in Battery Point, Hobart from 2012 to 2015.

We understand that every household is unique and we're happy to do everything your way and keep it exactly as you like it. This is especially true with beloved pets - their health and happiness is our top priority and we'll maintain their familiar routines including feeding, grooming, exercise, and lots of affection and play.

Our years of experience in puppy-raising, dog-minding, cat-caring, and general menagerie maintenance allow us to give your pets the best TLC, as well as providing exceptional housekeeping for your home.

Feel free to get in touch with us anytime - we'd love to meet you and your pets and discuss your house sitting requirements in person.

*As there are two of us, we may sometimes be able to accept bookings that overlap by a few days.

We're available in Melbourne CBD and inner urban areas including: Abbotsford, Albert Park, Alphington, Armadale, Ascot Vale, Balaclava, Burnley, Carlton, Carlton North, Clifton Hill, Collingwood, Cremorne, East Melbourne, Fairfield, Fitzroy, Fitzroy North, Flemington, Hawthorn, Jolimont, Kensington, Kew, Kooyong, Middle Park, Northcote, North Melbourne, Parkville, Port Melbourne, Prahran, Princes Hill, Richmond, Southbank, South Melbourne, South Yarra, St Kilda, Toorak, Westgarth, and Windsor.

  • North Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

I'm a Brisbane local for the last 10 years, originally from Central Queensland. I've worked many years in the Qld Govt and their last criminal history clearance of me was July 2016. A house sitter since mid-2016 who loves animals! I love dogs, fish and birds especially, and grew up with lots of pets. I have two references attached from a private house sits (not this website). I lead a quiet personal life, love a clean house, non-smoking, and like to get out walking which makes dogs easy and enjoyable for me. My family has animal-loving in their genes, with 2 vet nurses, 1 pet hotel owner and dog groomer all in my family. I also love gardens and plants and have quite a green thumb. I am reaching a financial goal and after returning from several months abroad. With my things in storage, house-sitting has been a simple and convenient transition for me. I'm taking future bookings preferably 12 days minimum periods, for Brisbane locations close to public transport. I look forward to hearing about your house sitting needs.

Apart from work, we live a very quiet lifestyle and enjoy walking, running and playing tennis. We have just returned from travelling for three months in Europe in late 2017, and would be available to house sit a property long or short term from March 2018. We are more than happy to meet with you first to allow you to make your decision as to who you want to look after your property and pets. Please feel free to call, text, or email us at any time to discuss what you may require.

Ann


  • ACT

I divide my time between Geraldton and Canberra. In Geraldton I have a lovely home, two gorgeous border collies, Salsa and Lulu, and a very supportive husband. In Canberra I have a great job which lets me work from Geraldton on occasion. When in Canberra I love to house sit and I have been doing so for about two years. House sitting allows me to get to know different parts of Canberra. A bonus is looking after pets, particularly dogs that like to take me on walks. We do agility with Salsa and have started to train Lulu, and my husband and I are active in the local club. I am used to dogs of all types and personalities. I also enjoy winning cats' affection and love looking after chooks. I'm responsible, friendly and rarely go out in the evenings or weekends. I have a car but enjoy taking the bus to work in Civic. I can supply references and a current police check.

Brittnay & Jayden


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

Hello!

We are Brittnay & Jay, a professional house sitting couple. We both have a passion for animals and travelling. We have both been raised with family pets. However, since we have made the move to travelling and working remotely full time, we both really miss the interaction with animals.

We both feel strongly that pets are apart of your family and treated in such a respect. We have both grown up with an array of animals, so we firmly believe you can comfortably leave them in our capable loving company.

We love to go for walks every day, which would fit perfectly for people with active pets but also are homebodies so your pets will be able to someone to use as a comfy couch in evenings :)

We both work remotely, therefore we are able to be around the house more often hopefully putting your animals at ease with the company.

We enjoy gardening and keeping a tidy home is something we take pride in. We believe communication is key to providing a situation in which both parties are comfortable with the house sit.

We believe all our personal attributes and experiences can provide you with a fantastic service. We are happy to provide personal and police references. Please let us prove how helpful we can be.

Why we want to house sit
Growing up with cats, dogs, birds and fish as family pets we both have had animals close to us our entire lives. Over the past couple of years, we have been travelling and moving around fulltime. Moving around so much it is very hard for us to have pets of our own so we love house sitting because we can get pet interaction that we both really miss.

There is nothing we love more than snuggling up on the couch with a cat or dog, or going for a run along the beach with a dogs lead in hand!

Our Experience
We have completed six house sits over 2017 & 2018. These sits range from 1 weeks to 1 month. We have looked after everything from chihuahuas, new foundlands, turtles, cats & many chickens.

We have both had extensive interaction with animals growing up, including cats, dogs, fish and chickens. Both of us believe animals are apart of your family and are to be treated as such. We are both responsible and reliable individuals who guarantee your animals and property will be cared for to the highest standard. We like to have strong communication with owners, so both yourself and us feel comfortable at all times.

Richard


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

I am a single, mature aged, non-smoking gentleman with experience in house and pet sitting.

As a recently retired school teacher, I am looking for an opportunity to extend myself and broaden my travelling experience by living in an area for longer than a fleeting visit as is usually the case when taking a holiday from work.
I enjoy gardening, reading, cooking, walking, and recently, craft creations.

Whilst not having my own pets these days, I have had the rather usual menagerie of a cat, dogs, fish, guinea pigs, white mice and chooks.

I have a reference and photos which are attached.
I look forward to be of assistance.

Regards

Richard

We are a mother and daughter looking to house sit your home like its our own! Mature woman full time employed in medical and daughter full time design student at Swinburne. We are looking to house sit as an alternative to renting, as we are saving for a new home later in 2018! We would look after your home the way you would, as we have been homeowners and renters in the past and therefore, understand your requirements for a clean, tidy, secure home. In the past we have had several family pets including cats and dogs. We would love to care for your pets as if they were our own. We enjoy gardening, have flexible working/studying hours which enable us to keep pets lot and of company. We like to be organised, clean, tidy and enjoy living quietly.
Have previously worked as a house keeper/nanny. Can provide both personal and professional references and police check on request.
We have a sit booked late March
UPDATE*** as Emma has found accommodation near uni l am still available to house sit singularly.

Hello. I am a professional writer and senior administrator, an animal lover and experienced housesitter.
As someone who owns their own (small) cottage - currently rented - I know what a big thing it is to entrust someone with your home. I enjoy getting to know new animals and places and hope to be able to help you with your house and pet sitting needs soon.

Have a lovely day.

Hi! I have just started a new job as a Project Developer for a solar energy company. I work full-time hours, Monday to Friday in the city. I have worked as a nanny with a reputable nanny agency for the past five years and spend a lot of time looking after kids aged anywhere between 0 and 13. As a result, I am very experienced in looking after other people's houses! I also have a Working with Children check and a Police check. I have spent years renting houses and know what is required to keep a house in a good, clean condition. I have a keen interest in health and fitness, sport, film and cooking/eating! I am a very tidy person and enjoy cleaning/undertaking domestic tasks. I absolutely love animals, I grew up surrounded by them. I am able to provide both personal and professional references upon request and would be happy to answer any other questions you may have for me.

Filip works as a writer during the day and a bar manager in the evenings and on the weekends. Filip works from home during the day so our opposite schedules means someone is usually always at home. Fil and I have previously completed a house sit through Happy House Sitters. We had a great relationship with the home owner and she asked us back for a second sit. We are both quite house proud; like to keep the home nice and clean and maintain it as a nice space to be in.

Hi, we are nick and Severin presently living in Manly. We are looking at house sitting for a few months, as our lease expires and we want to have some options. We are both insurance professionals and work in the CBD here in Sydney. We have our own car and are reliable tenants. Happy to have a chat and meet up to hopefully illustrate our credentials. Thanks for reading

Hi,
We are Alison & Vardon and we will travelling Australia from mid 2018
so if we reply to your message we will be genuinely interested.
We will be travelling in our 8m motorhome with our two Jack Russell`s
Jeddah & Riley, we will be more than comfortable in our own rig,
however a reasonably level parking area and the ability to connect a power
lead & hose and access to laundry & bathroom is all we need.
We will be leasing our home on the NSW Central Coast and understand the
anxiety of having the right people in your home whilst your away.
We are both in our mid 50`s and are active, love all animals and don`t have a
problem with caring for livestock if required, we are both keen gardeners if
some property maintenance is necessary.
I have been a self employed tradesman most of my working life & Alison has
been in office administration for a local business for the past 27 years and we
are now looking forward to "living the dream" and offer our assistance, so
rest assured the greatest of care will be given to your animals & property.
Police checks are available.
Kind Regards,
Vardon & Alison
