Lisa & Lynn

  • Sydney

We are a mother and daughter team from the UK and are particularly looking for a house sit for about 3 weeks in Sydney in August, September or possibly in December. We are looking for a house sit in Sydney because my brother lives in Chatswood so we would like to be able to visit him and his family sometimes while we are housesitting. I work as an Art Psychotherapy lecturer at a London University so the stay would need to fit with my UK University holidays. We are caring people, non-smokers, interested in animals and have plenty of experience of looking after cats, dogs and gardens. Because we want to be able to spend time with my brother we would like a housesit where we are able to go out in the daytimes so animals that don't get lonely too easily would be ideal. We are clean and tidy and will look after your house and garden very well. We are happy to walk dogs, mow lawns and do other household chores.


  • NSW, QLD

I am a single 61 year old, retired former public servant. I am financially secure, well educated and well travelled.
I try to run my life simple, peaceful and close to nature. I am a meditator and I practise yoga daily. I am fastidious and keep my surrounds uncluttered and extremely tidy. I clean the house I live in chemicals free as much as possible. I do nor smoke or drink, I do not gamble and I eat healthy and organic food.
I like gardening and growing my own vegetables. I find these activities very rewarding as well as therapeutic.
I like animals especially cats, which I find serene and independent and dogs for their fondness of humans. In my younger days I spent time on farms in Poland and enjoyed a lot of interaction with other domesticated animals.
I owned several houses in my life, the last one being in Suffolk Park, which I sold in 2015.
In my sits so far i have looked after the houses as well as vegetable gardens and dogs, cats, chicken, lorrikeets, cockatiels, goats, steer, sheep, horses, alpacas, fish turntle and a donkey.
I have enjoyed my house sits. I feel they work for both parties. It is a great way for me to see new parts of Australia and give the owners the freedom to travel. I am able to provide good references which will show that I maintain properties very well.

Charles & Narrelle

  • Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, QLD

Hi. We are a retired couple with no ties. We live in Iluka NSW & would like to housesit for you & take care of your pets while you take a break. We are very house proud & enjoy gardening & walking. We don't have a caravan or mobile home so would need to live in. We are reliable & honest & are non smokers. We would look after your home & pets as though they were our own. We also have references if required.

  • Sydney

Hi, my name is Clare. I'm a 39 year old, single, non-smoking, professional who enjoys a healthy lifestyle and loves to travel.

I'm very responsible, respectful, independent, and a bit of a clean will probably leave your home tidier than you left it!

I'm an animal lover and have a much adored fur baby (lilac burmese) called Papi who currently resides with his human grandparents. If you have pets they will get lots of love and cuddles!

I work in the Justice field and am honest and reliable. I work standard business hours leaving plenty of time for exercise. I love house sitting for owners with dogs as it ensures I get out for a walk or run, especially in winter. Being a cat person also, I especially enjoy being in the service of cats :)

I'm based in the city for work and am therefore quite flexible with most locations across Sydney. I have previous house/pet sitting experience and can provide references and a Police check upon request.

Joyce & Brian

  • Sydney

We are a retired couple who stay in the beautiful Isle of Skye in Scotland. We are coming to Sydney in November 2017 for 12 to 14 weeks spending some of our time with our daughter, her partner and our 3 year old grandson. Although we have only house sat in Scotland for friends, my husband and I have completed about 12 house exchanges , 7 of them in Australia. Quite a few of our exchangers have mentioned how clean and tidy we have left their homes.
We have 3 self catering apartments on our property, which can be viewed on our website 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.

On our previous trips we have taken part in WWOOFING. This is volunteering to work on various farms and properties around Australia in return for food and accommodation. Details can be found on the We have had really positive experiences doing this and have met some wonderful people. Some properties we return to time and time again. It is a wonderful way to travel and see the wonderful Australian countryside.
We have owned our own home here in Ireland for the past 35 years. We are both very houseproud, responsible and reliable and would take excellent care of your home, pets and property.We love the company of animals and have owned several cats over the years.

  • Melbourne

Hello! I am a recently separated, mature, reliable, resourceful & considerate non-smoker, with references & police check.
As a home owner myself, I have engaged house sitters many times and I appreciate the assurance provided by a responsible house sitter. I look forward to affording other home owners with this confidence.
While I have no children, I have owned a cat for the last 16 years (although it's probably more appropriate to say that he owned me), and I have experience administering feline medication in various forms. I would care for your cat/s with the devoted affection of a true cat-lover.
I am tidy by nature and committed to maintaining a high standard of cleanliness.
I am employed full-time with the Victorian State Government and my office is located in the CBD.
If you are seeking a capable, respectful & flexible house sitter, please contact me.

Offering PEACE of MIND!

I am a mature (and youthful) trustworthy woman and Mudgeeraba homeowner who understands the importance of knowing your home and animal friends are being well cared for in your absence.

Earlier this year, my two adult children and I travelled overseas. The trip was worry-free. Our cats and dog were all happy in their familiar home surroundings, with their needs attended to affectionately by a family friend.

My experiences as a teacher and executive, and my love of animals, equip me to fulfil housesitting roles with ease. You will return to your home as you left it. Your animals will be looked after with great care, and happy to update you while you are away.

I live most healthfully ( no tobacco, alcohol or drugs ) and enjoy Qigong, Pilates, meditation, walking, swimming and cycling.

I housesat on two occasions for a friend last year. Her dog, cat and I became inseparable. I look forward to future similar experiences. Cats and small dogs preferred.

I am available for short term housesitting -- weekends or for a period of up to two weeks. A quiet location within 30 minutes drive of Mudgeeraba is preferred. Excellent references are available on request. I look forward to chatting with you…….

  • Sydney, Central Coast

I am a single female over 55 (non-smoker) employed in education (part time) where I am generally at home. As well I have over 1.5 years experience with house sitting three cats at one sit, three dogs at one house sit, birds and cattle with seven references indicating excellent care for both home and pets. My goal is to provide excellence in the care of your pets and home. As well I have a police check.

My house sitting service offers an option for my early arrival. During the preliminary time I can spend as much time as you like learning about the routine you want me to follow for your pet and home. I can organise my own accommodation during this pre-house sitting period.

In the past I have had the opportunity to house sit/manage a bed and breakfast, where home owners were happy with my care of their home. As well I have been house and pet sitting for over a year and one half and receive excellent recommendations from this. Additionally, I have both rented and owned a home with positive comments on the care of my home and garden.

I grew up with all types of animals including dogs and cats. Animals seem to know I will care for them and react positively to me. My experience with pets includes obedience training.

If you are especially interested in my care of your home, I would say that some of my friends might say that I spend too much time cleaning/organizing my home and taking care of my yard-- but I enjoy it. For one home, the neighbors labeled my beach yard the best cared for with its green grass (that I grew from almost nothing) and lovely flowers.

My past times are simple include walking/jogging, reading, movies/tv, gardening and socializing with friends and family. I enjoy a simple life. You can expect that no parties would be held at your property and my focus will be on caring for your pets/home.

Please contact me if you would like further information.

Pam & Keith

  • SA, WA

We are a couple in our early 60’s – recently retired who enthusiastically enjoy house sitting because it allows us to provide a valuable personalized service to home owners. Nothing gives us more pleasure than making home owners feel comfortable with being away from home, knowing their house is in good hands until the owner's return. We're very grateful to all our wonderful clients for the opportunities they have granted us through inviting us into their homes and lives. We receive trust, and in exchange, we provide loving care. We are non-smokers who are honest, reliable and dependable house sitters who will respect your property and personal things. Our background was in education. We have owned a home and are fully conscious of the care and security needed in keeping a house (including a pool) maintained. Also we have had pets that lived very long comfortable lives because we treated them as part of our family. We will care for your pets as if they were part of our own family. We have had experience in house/pet sitting before and we have references available on request.

  • Melbourne

Hi there!

I'm Brittany, a mature, active, extremely clean & tidy, single non-smoking 28yr old. I've lived out of home since I was 18, living in areas such as South Yarra, Windsor, Aspendale and Bonbeach. I've been working as a Dental Nurse for close to 8 years and a Clinical Manager for a Specialist Dental Practice in Malvern for 6 years , I'm extremely passionate about my work and love the team that I get to work with daily.

Over the years I've done house sitting/pet sitting for family/friends and friends of friends as a favour, now I'm thinking house sitting would be doing me a huge favour. Saving to travel means I've moved back in with my parents which is a long travel to distance to and from work each day this why I would love to do some house sitting/pet sitting in the surrounding suburbs of my employment to give me a much needed break from the Monash Freeway and time to myself at the end of a work day :)

Granted the opportunity, I would thoroughly enjoy providing your fur babies with the utmost care and love. My intention is to offer you peace of mind, ensuring your home is safe and sound and your pets are showered with genuine affection and attentive care, so that you can enjoy your time away to its fullest potential.

Having grown up with pets my whole life I'm experienced in caring for cats and dogs, I have also had some experience with birds and rabbits, from daily play to teaching some basic tricks like sit, stay, drop, shake and more recently bang play dead. I will keep up with socialisation to maintaining feeding schedules and cleaning litter trays, I am the pet sitter for you.

Feel free to get in touch so we can work out how I can best match your individual needs. I look forward to hearing from you and wish you well in planning your upcoming travels.

Hi all House owners,

We are an active couple venturing into retirement and see this as a great opportunity to experience more of this beautiful country.

Our plan is to leave South Australia in June and head all the way up to the vicinity of Rockhampton. From there we will head back down the coast to Wollongong for Christmas (we have family there). After Christmas we will continue our travels down the coast through Victoria and hopefully Tasmania before heading back to Adelaide later in 2018.

We have both had pets and would be very confident in managing any of your pets as required. We are non smokers and are also very House proud so you can be assured your property would be looked after as if our own

We currently have secured house sits in Kurrajong NSW from 30th June to 28th July, Beachmere QLD from 6th August to the 19th August and Birkdale Qld up to Sept 12th. We would be more than happy to discuss any sitting requirements you may have that roughly fall into our travel plans after those dates.

We look forward to hearing from you

Lynn and Ron


  • NSW, South Eastern

I am a mature, considerate woman who feels that people's 'homes' in very
many ways, reveal who they really are. I am house proud and clean and
while I am staying in your home I treat it with the respect and consideration
that it deserves.

I have looked after numerous homes in the past few decades, some of my house
sits lasting for 6 months at a time.

I am an animal lover and have experience with dogs, cats, fish, birds and sheep. I also take
care of plants and gardens be they inside or out.

I have excellent references; one of them a previous long term landlord and another a
house owner whose large home and pets I cared for on more than one occasion.
There are also references from shorter 'house sits'
that I have done here and there. I can also supply my latest house sit which extended some seven months.

I have a current police check and I do not smoke, nor am I a party goer. I spend much of my
spare time walking or writing.

Please email me any time if you feel I might be the right person to care of and love your home, pets and
plants while you are away.


  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

Hi there. I am a single, non-smoking professional currently living in my own unit in Aspendale.

A school teacher by trade, I'm working part-time in Berwick and run my own corporate training business from home. Being a home owner myself, I am conscious of the care needed in keeping a house maintained. I grew up in country Victoria with many pets and love the company that they provide. I am available for longer length house sitting engagements and can provide references, as well as a police clearance and working with children check.

I'm about to do two local house-sits: One in Sandringham for 3 weeks and another in Narre Warren for 3 months. I will be free to take on another house sit from 26th October, 2017 onwards.

I've traveled most of Europe and America as a SERVAS traveler - staying in people's homes - so am very familiar with the ethos and processes required. I am a responsible, reliable and considerate person, and would take excellent care of your property.

Mimi & Kurt


Hi There!
We are Mimi & Kurt and we have a great passion for travel, philanthropy work and are big animal lovers. We currently run our own not-for-profit business which focuses on hunger relief and hope to expand this worldwide. We are also planning towards opening our own animal shelter & adoption centre in the near future.

Our work is 100% online and this flexibility allows us to travel the world - generally for both volunteer work and leisure. However, no matter where we are we will always call Australia home :).

We are huge foodies and love spending most of our time at home relaxing, cooking and cuddling up with any fur babies in our care. As we both work from home we can guarantee that all pets will have company 24/7. We have extensive experience looking after animals within the family as well as volunteering at the RSPCA in QLD. When we are not home we love spending time getting fit outdoors at parks or the beach. If your pet needs a lot of exercise we are definitely the right choice for you!

We are very house-proud people and non-smokers who like to keep a very clean home. Kurt also has had many years of experience as a landscaper and as a result he is more than happy to assist you in maintaining your garden. We are happy to forward references upon request.

We look forward to taking care of your home and pets! :)

  • Melbourne, Macedon Ranges, North Eastern, North Western, Gippsland

I am a qualified dog trainer using ‘positive’ methods for nearly five years. I love animals and have had plenty of experience taking care of them, for example, I have work experience caring for pets at a cattery and dog kennels. As a bonus I can offer behavioural training services for your domestic pets for free.
I have also looked after horses and sheep. I lived on a rural property for 7 years working at a private sanctuary where my animal duties included feed, medication and sanitisation for native wildlife in breeding programs and under Vet care. I also maintained fences, getting around on a quad bike. My current part-time work allows me to be at home most of the week and I can do this from anywhere with good mobile phone service and within a couple of hours drive to Melbourne for the occasional visit. I previously worked as a professional in science. I am a responsible, trustworthy, active female in my 50s. I do not partake in smoking, drinking or drugs and have no interest in partying.
Having owned a house myself I understand the importance of security and respecting peoples private spaces and will take good care of your home. I am very happy to look after your plants and mow the lawn. I have recently been living with Mum and renovating her property and I have a practical hand so I am also useful should the gutters clog up, a tap washer leak or a paling fall off the fence…
Now that my mother’s house is finished and sold, I am currently between homes and available to housesit from November 2016 and will certainly consider extended sits. I am looking for a home that would welcome me and my 6 year old highly trained and well socialised neutered Vizsla x Lab who is playful but mature, has no doggie smell and is beloved by my mother’s cats. He would love to cheer up your dog and offer security to your other pets. He is familiar with hoofed livestock and shows them respect. We can have them meet before you make up your mind.
I won’t use your phone unless for an emergency. I am clean and tidy and live lightly using minimal power and water. I can keep you in touch with your pets’ using Skype or send photos and videos. Referees available upon request.
