Fiona


  • Adelaide

I am a shift worker living in West Adelaide. I like to house sit as I enjoy time on my own. I have a family with my hubby, three girls, (22, 21 and 15), Lab Max is 10 years old, Ginger male cat (rescued). I am very reliable and I will feed and love your pets as if they were my own and I will look after your house and possessions in the same way. I enjoy Netflix so access to wifi is important. As I will be caring for your fur babies, it is important that on excessively warm or cold days, they are brought inside to avoid the extreme weather. Thank you.


Morgan


  • Sydney, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast

Over the past 4 years Morgan (41) and Izzy (37) have provided security, love and care for both homeowners’ furry family members, and their homes.

We look after your home as if it is our own, thankfully we’re both tidy, responsible and genuinely value leaving a place better than we found it.

Professionally we are both video producers and biz consultants (emphasis on Morgan), and copywriters and video editors (emphasis on Izzy). We often work from home, meaning we’re able to provide company for both your 4 walls, and your pets.
Morgan is also an avid DIY’er and enjoys helping with certain household tasks &/or fix-ups you might need done while you’re away.

We’re cinephiles, explorers of new places (whether around the corner, away from the city lights or across the globe) and avid foodie adventurers - both in and out of your kitchen :) .

We both grew up with various pets: dogs, cats, rabbits, and even a horse for Izzy, and genuinely miss all the care and engagement they encourage.

Feel free to get in touch and query away if you feel we’d be a good fit for your needs.

Erinn


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

Originally from Australia, I have been travelling full-time since June 2014 and petsitting full-time for the past 2 years. I am now looking for sits in the new year as I am returning to Australia in December 2018.



A highlight for me is meeting new people on my travels, through housesitting I have made some wonderful friends - both animal and human! Before setting off on my journey around the world I used to work as an Executive Assistant at ABC TV. I have extensive experience looking after dogs and cats through petsitting and volunteering. I have previously spent four months in Thailand volunteering full-time at a dog shelter with subsequent returns over the last couple of years. I have always owned pets whilst growing up and into my adult life, both cats and dogs. I grew up in the country, so was also around farm animals. I have had to administer medication to some of my animals I have been sitting for in the past, I have also had to take animals to the vet for treatment. I am not afraid to get in and get dirty when it comes to animals, I understand they can make a mess at times and I always ensure your house and pet's living space is keep clean and tidy. I have a flexible and easy going attitude with the ability to quickly adapt to new environments. I am responsible, trustworthy, independent and can think on my feet and problem-solve. I keep a quiet, clean environment and treat other people's home and possessions with respect and privacy. But above all, I show lots of love and care for your pets.



 



I have reviews on my Facebook page The Jetsitter - www.facebook.com/thejetsitter Offline references contactable by email are available upon request.


Carolyn


  • Melbourne

Hi! My name is Carolyn and I am a 38 year old, non-smoking professional. I work full-time and own a property that I rent out while I continue enjoying house and pet sitting around Melbourne. I started house sitting many years ago, looking after the homes and pets of colleagues, friends and family. When I made the decision that I would love to house & pet sit more often, I signed up to this website. I've now been house sitting through this website for over 5 years, and I love staying in many different parts of Melbourne and exploring new areas.

I simply adore all kinds of animals, but mostly have looked after dogs, cats, birds and fish. As I house sit throughout the year I’m unable to commit to having my own pets, so I would love to commit to yours! Your fur babies will be given lots of love, fuss, and as many cuddles as they desire. It is important to me to follow your routine with your pets as closely as possible. I would very much enjoy taking excellent care of your fur babies, just as you do!

I am a clean, responsible and considerate person and I consider it a privilege to care for your home and pets. As well as happy pets, your home will be well looked after and on your return you will find it as clean and as tidy as when you left. I would really like for you to have peace-of-mind while you are away, so I am more than happy to provide you with as many updates from home as you'd like :).

We are planning a trip overseas and are attempting to Housesit inbetween the time of our lease expiring and our dates to fly out.

We would prefer to meet you & your pets, before deciding to continue with arrangement.

Our hours are flexible and a quick meeting can be arranged most days and at reasonable hours.

Jean & Robin


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

We are between homes as we have sold our Sydney home and are awaiting the completion of our new home in December.
We have had many experiences as house owners accessing the offerings of many Housesitters. We have been fortunate to have had our Labrador and three cats cared for whilst we enjoyed travelling. Now we are pet free but we both love animals and would greatly enjoy the opportunity to care for your pets and your home and garden.
We are very House-proud and would treat your home with great respect as we do our own. We are keen gardeners.
We look forward to being given the opportunity to assist you as your offer of your home would help us.

Sarah


  • Melbourne

Hello home owner,

I have been house-sitting for friends and family on and off for over 10 years. Before my current profession, I was an Interior Designer, so I love looking after people's homes. Currently I work with Parks Victoria, so I also love being outdoors and looking after gardens and animals. I have enjoyed owning pets all my life although don't currently have any so it would be a pleasure to live with yours. I am a respectful, kind and trustworthy house-sitter who you can rely on. I am flexible and more than happy to answer any questions you may have. I can also provide references and a current police check.

Thank you,
Sarah

Dr. Michael


  • QLD

Dr. Michael Groner is a former university professor and Special Education Director, divorced with 2 adult children. He is an experienced housesitter having cared for many properties in both Victoria and Queensland including care for many animals - dogs, cats, birds, farm animals. Mike is a most responsible and reliable individual who offers much TLC to all the domestic and farm animals that he is responsible for. He is a very keen environmentalist as well as an avid gardener so that he can attend to any landscaping needs that your property may require.

Currently, Mike is residing, part-time in Saigon, Vietnam where he is teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) to local Vietnamese residents; however, he very often returns to the Queensland area and preferably to Brisbane and Gold Coast in order to visit friends and family still residing there.

For security purposes, Dr. Groner, who is now a pensioner and depending much upon housesitting opportunities, has available, for homeowners, a national police check. He is also willing to offer a security deposit, upon request - if required, in order to reassure home owners that their property and pets will be most thoughtfully and carefully protected.

Ricarda


  • Sydney

Hi lovely pets and pet-owners, my name is Ricarda, 24, studying Business Management in Sydney CBD till December. I will be in Sydney until 15th January and would love to pet sit in/around Sydney. At the moment I do dog sitting until mid October in the Northern Beaches. After that I am free to take care of somebody else pet. I grew up with two dogs and one cat and love to be around animals. I’m an outgoing, positive, caring, reliable person who just enjoys her time in Australia. I am a mature woman who loves walking in nature, being active with a healthy lifestyle and cooking. As I only have class Monday untill Wednesday in the evening I am at home a lot, researching and writing my assessmentsl. I have cared for many different kinds of homes, gardens and creatures and am happy to care for yours as my own. I have experience house sitting and pet minding in many different types of homes and areas. So if you're planning to go away in from middle October till middle January knowing your pet(s) are in good hands, don't hesitate to contact me anytime. Cheers Ricarda


Denis


  • Sydney, Central Coast

I'm Den, a 34 year old Sydney born/raised single male known for my sincerity and compassion, along with being open-minded, accepting and flexible. I speak English, Portuguese, Spanish and French. Currently a Remedial Massage Therapist (which fur children/animals seem to take advantage of), previously a Teacher and Disability Support Worker. I enjoy walking and exploring new and different places. If it means anything, I am (according to the Myers-Briggs personality types) an ENFP, making me what is sometimes known as an introverted extrovert (an extrovert with a strong introverted side).



 



An animal lover, I will soon housesit a Domestic Shorthair cat in the Inner West. Previous Sydney housesits include...



* Hills District: two dogs (a Schnoodle and a senior German Shepherd/Kelpie) and four Domestic Shorthair cats



* Parramatta Area: two large senior dogs (a Husky and a Cattle Cross)



* St George Area: a senior Bitzer/Staffy dog and thirteen birds (seven Cockatiels and six Rainbow Lorikeets); a Japanese Spitz



* South-Eastern Sydney: a senior Border Collie and a Domestic Shorthair cat



* Upper North Shore: two large dogs (a Border Collie/Labrador/Beagle and a Border Collie/Springer Spaniel pup) and a Domestic Shorthair cat; a senior Chinchilla cat



 



I had a dog for 14 years, as well as a canary and often interact with friends' pets (most recently cats). Having rented with housemates over the years, I like keeping my space peaceful and tidy. Being a Remedial Massage Therapist, I am more flexible than the conventional 9-5 Mon-Fri worker. Unlike some house sitters, when I commit to a house sit, I commit - unless unforeseen circumstances force me to cancel, I will not be dropping a house sit and have knocked back house sits which worked better for me out of respect for those I have committed to.



I will need parking (even if simply a driveway or street) for my car as part of any house sit.



 



Along with several referees, I have National Police History and NSW Working With Children checks which are available on request.


Ailsa


  • Brisbane, South Eastern, Melb. Inner suburbs

My name is Ailsa and I am a 49 year old professional medical practice manager working part time and now looking after furry friends and house sitting the other percentage of my time and absolutely loving it.
I have owned my own home and know about all of the responsibilities and looking after that comes with that looking after a house and garden and running a house hold that of course included pets.
Now I am having a change to my life style looking after other homes and pets which I am enjoying meeting so many different people and their pets.
I love the company of animals, and have had my own dogs and cats so not a problem looking after others - I love my walks and the outdoor so if dog walkies are required that is not a problem.
I enjoy my own space and quiet times at home, practice yoga enjoy reading, good coffee and morning walks. I am a non smoker and have excellent references from previous clients or employers.
I can honestly say that I am extremely honest and caring and most of all when it comes to pets put more than required to look after any ones pets.
Hope to chat soon.
Kind Regards Ailsa..

We are a semi-retired couple who enjoy a reasonably quiet lifestyle. We love the company of most domestic pets, cats, dogs, birds, guinea pigs etc. and have some experience with farm animals, mainly chickens, horses and cows.

We are both non-smokers and non-drinkers and are reasonably fit, a clean and tidy couple who love to keep busy in the garden. We are a responsible, security conscious couple who will treat your home and pets with respect and consideration as if it were our own home.

Animals are my favourite people! With just under 3 years of solid house sitting experience (40 homes) and many great references, you can be confident that your precious companions will receive the best of care while you are taking a break.

To date, I have cared for over 130 animals including a variety of dogs, cats, miniature horses, chickens, fish, guinea pigs, goats and even a pair of emus!

I am a non-smoker who is clean, tidy and considerate of your home. I bring my own bedding and all consumables with me too; you can rest assured your home will be just as you left it on your return.

Sandra


  • Melb. SE suburbs

I sold my beautiful 5 Br family home in Heathmont, Victoria in February 2018 as my children have all flown the coop. My new unit is not ready until April 2019 so now approaching the later half of my 50's I have the time and opportunity to try something a bit different. I am responsible, reliable and honest. Although not having any pets currently, I have over the years had dogs, cats, budgies, guinea pigs, hermit crabs, stick insects, mice, rabbits, sheep, a very stubborn Shetland pony, ducks, geese and fish. I can attend to all the needs of your pets as well as giving them the care and nurturing that you want them to have especially while you are away. I am a regular house sitter for my daughters both whom have dogs, cats and chickens. I have recently completed a 3 month sit in Montrose, a 10 day sit in Mitcham and a 6 week sit in The Patch. I am single, clean, tidy, organised and a non smoker. I have a current Police check, Working with children check and can supply references.

Heidi & Phillip


  • Brisbane, South Eastern

My hubby Phillip and I have recently sold our property in Morningside and are going to be building a new home in Camp Hill. We have decided to explore house sitting for the six months while we construct our new home. We have been fortunate to secure some housesitting of friends property during December-January and therefore looking to house sit from 24th September 2018 through 12 December and 21 January until mid April 2019.

We are both active working professionals who work fulltime with no children or pets. We love animals and are very happy to do any cleaning and general maintenance. As home owners ourselves we would look after your home the way you would.

We do not have direct house sitting experience but we have been Airbnb super hosts, sharing our home for the last 3 years with travelers and locals too. We have over 80 reviews as hosts and understand what it means to be a guest in someone's home. We would be happy to share these with you to give you a sense for how we always presented our home and looked after our guests. This is our first time housesitting for people we don't know personally, and we are looking forward to the new experience!

We are both house proud and would consider it a privilege to care for your home, pets and garden. Please call us at any time to discuss your needs.
