Michelle


  • Sydney, Wollongong & Illawarra

Hello! I'm a Clinical Psychologist working part time at a Community Mental Health Centre in Sydney and working from home writing and researching (4 days per week).

As I am working in Sydney in permanent jobs, I can be completely relied upon with any house sitting arrangements made. I am a non-smoker, non-partyer and also a very quiet, clean, tidy, and honest person by nature, and I show a lot of care and respect towards others and the things they hold dear (which includes homes and pets!). I love being physically active and outdoors - walking when I can, but am eager for some quite space in a cosy home to read and relax. Having grown up on a farm, I miss having animals in Sydney, so it would be a privilege to take care of someone's pets while they are away.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. I have completed recent police checks and working with children checks (a requirement of NSW Health) in February this year, and can hopefully dig up a copy if anyone requires it. I can also provide character references from people I have house sat for in the past.

  • 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.

  • Syd. NW suburbs, Central Coast, Newcastle, Mid North Coast, Tweed Coast

PLEASE NOTE:

AVAILABLE for NSW from mid November 2017

As of Mar 2017 we will have spent our 1st year of house sitting discovering Perth & rural areas of WA. We have had a wonderful time & met some amazing people/pets. We are now looking to continue our adventure in other states.

We are a married, healthy, retired couple, both non-smokers. Having sold our business we are now catching up on lost time to indulge in our love of travelling.
Prior to running our own business we were both long term Military personnel and then worked in the Corporate Sector.

We have travelled extensively around Australia & in parts of Europe and love the experience new places can offer.
When traveling overseas, we always tried to stay in places where the locals went for holidays rather than the tourist orientated areas.

We enjoy the experience of "living like a local" and welcome the opportunity to be involved in the day to day life, and discovering the beauty, of the local area which is far more rewarding than ticking all the boxes to say you have seen all the tourist spots. House sitting allows you time to slowly discover new places, meet people and enjoy the company of pets of all varieties, both large & small.

We are responsible people who have owned and rented properties, have previously maintained a pool and garden and are used to dealing with any issues that arise.
We are conscious of the care and security required to maintain a property.

We enjoy gardening and look forward to tending the different gardens that we are now not able to have ourselves.

We are experienced with animals having had numerous pets (large and small) over the years and know how to deal with both young & older ones. Most of our animals have been adopted from recuse homes/welfare.

Being retired gives us lots of time to look after your home, garden and pets.

We are able to provide references and Police clearances .

Lynn & Ron


  • NSW, Brisbane, South Eastern, Central, Central Coast (Qld)

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

Regards
Lynn and Ron

  • Adel. N. suburbs

Adelaide Northern Suburbs.

I haven't any experience as a house sitter yet, but I am a honest, trustworthy person who has police clearance as well as **references available** if required. I will look after your home as it was my own. I have now retired but my husband is still working. I want to visit Adelaide more often as I now have a our Daughter, Son-in-Law and the most beautiful Granddaughter who live in Enfield. I am now able to go to Adelaide on a regular basis as I had to put to my precious dog, Ellie to sleep just over a year ago due to complications from Cushing's disease. She had been part of our family for over 14 years.

I love most family pets, dogs, cats, rabbits etc although I prefer smallish less boisterous dogs as I am not that tall myself but it is not a pre-requisite. I also enjoy light gardening if needed.

I live on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and enjoy doing my craft work in the sunshine, playing cards with the oldies at the local nursing home and I also like going to our local Surf Club for a meal and/or a drink or two with friends although I am quite happy with my own company.

I am definitely a non-smoker.

Maz


  • Sydney, Central Coast

I am a single female over 40 employed in education with some experience in house sitting. My goal is to provide excellence in the care of your pets and home.

My house sitting service offers an option for my early arrival (1-3 days). This can be especially important if you have pets and want them to grow accustomed to me. 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/bed and breakfast manage, where home owners were happy with my care of their home. 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. The animals seem to know I will care for them and react positively to me. My experience with pets includes obedience training for both large and small dogs.

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. When in South Australia, the neighbors labeled my yard the best cared for with its green grass (that I grew) and lovely flowers.

My past times are simple include walking/jogging, reading, movies/tv, gardening (when I have one) and socializing with friends and family, as well as using my mobile to keep in touch. 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.
Sincerely
Maz

Grace


  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

Hi!

My names Grace and I'm a 21 year old athlete. I like to believe I live a pretty healthy lifestyle, don't drink, smoke or take drugs and I'm also vegetarian (which may or may not work in my advantage here lol). I love being outdoors and train and work most days. I grew up with a lot of animals including rabbits, dogs, cats and birds, so have quite a good amount of experience with needs and requirements of your pet. Currently available until early April. Can move in immediately.

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, (20, 19 and 13), Lab Max is 8 years old, Ginger male cat (rescued) and female tabby who is one year old.

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.

Brian & Jill


  • ACT, NSW, Brisbane, South Eastern, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

We are early retirees who began our house-sitting in early December 2016. Prior to that we were house-sitting my sister's house in Cairns & decided we would like to experience lots of different areas of Australia as residents rather than as tourists.
The animals we enjoy and have experience with are dogs, cats, guinea pigs, chooks and birds. However since our elderly dog died in December 2012, we have not taken on any new pets, as we retired shortly afterwards and took to some short-term travelling.
We are clean and tidy and are both non-smokers and non-drinkers. My husband is a keen runner and pushbike rider and I enjoy long walks.
We can provide references if requested.

Chris & Lyn


  • Central Coast, Port Stephens, North Coast, South Coast

We are a retired couple who love bushwalking, fishing, our national parks, beaches and coastal headlands. We are clean and tidy and respectful of other people's property, respect the neighbour's right to privacy, peace and quiet, and love pottering around our garden, vegi patch and orchid greenhouse. Non smokers/drinkers. We have an affinity with dogs (and wildlife) having recently lost our third dog, an Alaskan Malamute, the previous dogs being an English Springer Spaniel and a German Short-Haired Pointer. All our dogs have been members of the family.

We would love to house mind in the same high manner we love and respect our own house in and around the Central and North Coast of NSW, especially South West Rocks, Hat Head, Nambucca, Port Macquarie, Foster, Coffs Harbour, Yamba and Iluka. We have previously house sat and have engaged house sitters. See references.

Niesha


  • Melbourne

Hi :)

I am a single, well-travelled mid-30s female, who loves animals, is trustworthy, extremely clean and tidy, and very respectful of other's space and belongings :)

I am an experienced house/petsitter, having done so steadily for the past 2 years, solely through word-of-mouth! I've decided it's time to join a reputable site as well, to expand on my fantastic existing home/pet owners' network :) I was inspired to start by my mother, who successfully house/petsat for over 8 years on the Sunshine Coast! I grew up surrounded by animals, and love to be around them. I have experience administering medication to animals as instructed, as a couple of my past petsits have involved older animals that require daily medication. I can provide general maintenance of plants/gardens, and I have also looked after homes without animals.

Currently, I am an admin and project management contractor, who works from a laptop/home the majority of the time, with the occasional weekend graveyard shift on the side. Due to my flexible schedule, I tend to be at home during the day more often than a 9-5 worker. I like a chilled, relaxed home environment so you can be assured there'll be no parties or shenanigans in your home while I'm there :)

I am an outside only smoker, and never near open windows or doors. I don't drive, so homes' in Mebourne's central/inner city areas, up to 15 minutes walk from public transport such as trams and/or trains, would suit best.

I am a very 'low footprint' tenant in terms of other's space, and would care for your animals as you do :) I look forward to meeting you!

References are available. For extra peace of mind, I've also applied for a Police Check and it will be available when processed.

Sacha


  • Melbourne

Hello, I am Sacha, living in Ashburton with my partner. Unfortunatly my partner is allergic to dogs and cats and I am a huge animal lover (had dogs and cats all my life). For this reason and for some lovely private time to do preparations for my work projects, I love to housesit and take care of your furry ones. I am happy to look after your dogs and/or cats whilst you are away and guard your home for you. I value a clean environment and very keen to maintain the space I live or stay, clean and tidy. I have a quiet lifestyle, enjoy walks in the park and lovely latte's. Happy to meet you and very much open to a chat.

Margaret


  • North Coast, QLD

I am a mature single woman looking to house sit preferably in Queensland or Northern NSW. I am a non smoker, non drinker, no drugs, no partying (yes regarded as boring by some!) person who would love the chance to look after your property and animals while you are away. I do hold a current Police Check.

May not be able to handle very large dogs if they need to go for walks and they would prefer to walk me instead of the other way around. Quite capable though of throwing a ball etc (if they fetch ball) to give them plenty of exercise. But I would love to have the company of a dog or cat (I love cuddles).

Don't mind if I have to look after chooks (would love fresh eggs). Would really like your place if you have wild birds and animals coming near.

Wouldn't mind watering gardens, lawns etc. Can do basic weeding and could mow a lawn if not too big. If you have a big lawn I would look to paying someone (yes pay them myself) to do the mowing. After all I am saving on paying rent.

I would leave your home as clean and neat as you left it and look after it as if it were my own. I do sew and would like to do so during a house sit so I would need to set up my machine on a table if that is OK with you. I also require internet. Very happy to pay for my own mobile internet if required but I need you to be in an area where I can get reception. If you have wi-fi I am happy to reimburse you for my use.

If you are interested in having me as a house sitter please email me with as many details as you can. I would prefer an email telling me about your place before a phone call. It gives me time to take it all in before we speak in person.

I have house sat before however it was some years back now. I do have two references which I can make available to you on request. I am now in a better position to do more house sitting than I was some years back and I am really looking forward to doing it again and hopefully on an ongoing basis looking for others to follow on.

If you have read down this far I thank you very much and hopefully I suit your needs and I will hear from you soon

  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

I am in a transition stage this year, having put my home in storage at New Year and I'm undertaking full time house sitting while I live in different suburbs and the surrounding areas of Sydney. Eventually I aim to buy an apartment and will either rent it out or live in it. In the last twelve months I sold a business after building it up over twenty years and moved out of a townhouse where I had lived for twelve years. I am undertaking a masters degree by research this year and next so I have a lot of time to stay "in" if required which will suit pet owners. I have been enjoying the house sitting community and it suits my current life of studying and doing much less work.

I love animals and, apart from the last 5 years, have had pets of all descriptions most of my life. An inner-city person now, I have lived in different places over the years including by the ocean, on a river and on a farm over twenty years ago and raised animals of all kinds from baby lambs and calves to cats, dogs and birds. I pet sit for friends when they are away and the pets always take to me quickly as I do them.

I have worked in the arts and business for twenty five years and now run a small home based business as well as my study which does not require attendance at class. I have grown children who are totally independent and I feel this is my time to explore new ideas and live in new areas. House sitting is a great way to live in new areas and transition to a new home eventually for myself. I am very responsible, a garden and pet lover. I do need to stay within commuting distance of Sydney for study and family.

Laura & Christopher


  • NSW

COPULE: LONG-TERM TRAVELLERS AND ANIMAL LOVERS
Hello there! We are a couple of overland travellers who have been roaming the world for more than a decade. We are both animal lovers and meet stray furbabies constantly on our travels. Our biggest joy is feeding them and giving them cuddles and a warm place to sleep for the night...in our tent!
Chris and I are both travel writers and published authors and love nothing more than finding a peaceful retreat during our nomadic wanderings, where we can work and enjoy some down time. When we do house-sit, we spend most of our time at home, which makes us ideal pet companions :)
Both Chris and I have quite a healthy online presence so just ask and we'll happily provide evidence of who we are, and what we do.

WHY WE LOVE TO DO THIS
After more than 12 years on the road, I am missing the feeling of having a 'home', and the biggest setback of a travelling life is that we can't have pets of our own. I think this may just be the ideal solution.

WHAT WE OFFER TO YOU
We are a responsible and quiet couple who loves to stay home and relish comforts when we are housesitting. Considering we spend most of our life camping and on the road, we really do see house and petsitting as the privilege it is.
PETS: I was given my first dog for my 3rd birthday (when I staged a hunger strike to get an Old English Sheepdog!) and lived with pets all my life, right up until I started travelling in 2004. I am well versed in all things crazy-dog related, had 2 English Sheepdogs, 2 German Shepards and one nutty boxer, as well as 2 cats over the years. I also rescued a boxer puppy in Chile, whom I brought back to Australia. My partner has likewise always lived with pets, as well as having particular experience with farm animals. Chris managed a horse farm in South Africa for 3 months and worked as a horse-riding guide.
PROPERTIES: over the last 8 years of together-travel, we've managed campsites, built furniture and rewired electricity in entire properties. We've fixed motorbikes, cars and maintained boats. We're both handy-folks and love having projects around the house/garden/farm/shed/garage. It's a lovely distraction from our writing work.

Combined, we speak English, German, Italian, Spanish and a smattering of French. And dog of course! I worked as a tour guide in three continents over the course of five years and have looked after hundreds of tourists on vacation. It's this invaluable experience which, I believe, makes me reliable, trustworthy and responsible.
Our aim is to look after your home, and your furbabies, with the same passion we would have if they were ours.

NB: Please note that we are experienced house-sitter through a different website, and have only just discovered this Australia-specific one. Our profile may be new, but our expertise is not. In the last 12months alone, we have housesat and looked after 4 cats, 1 cheeky pug and two adorable rescue dogs, all in Malaysia.
Please also note that I am, originally, from Sydney.

Belinda


  • Sydney

Looking to house-sit in the Sydney area whilst writing and studying. I'm a mature, self-sufficient gal who's recently 'hung up her wings' after many years travelling the world with the airlines as flight attendant, looking for the quiet life. Organised, reliable, responsible and enormously house-proud, I will care for your home and pets like my own. Happy to supply references, I look forward to hearing from you.

Sophie


  • Melb. Inner suburbs

Hi there!
My name is Sophie and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Science at the University Of Melbourne.
My family owns a very playful border collie called Ted so I am so happy to be around any sort of animal
Happy to do whatever your house requires.

Chantal & Roelof


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, TAS, VIC

Hi there! We are Chantal and Roelof, an active, healthy and happy couple in our late twenties who are exploring the world together. At this moment we are travelling in our campervan to Bundaberg to find a job for a few months. After that we are heading downwards to Melbourne, so we would love to look after your house/pets in this region. Our schedule is flexible, making it easy for us to plan our itinerary around your travel needs. We hope you will contact us, but first we tell you a little more about ourselves.

We started travelling because we want to get to know the local lives of other people in cities around the world. House sitting provides the perfect setting for this, plus the fact that we love having animals around us. We have lived with - and taken care of - a variety of animals:
horses, cats, fish, dogs and chickens. We both enjoy having our own spot and taking care of the place we live in. We are familiar with basic repair and gardening work, are responsible, quiet and clean and love taking care of the pets.

Chantal (26) grew up on a small farm and she has always been surrounded by animals. She really loves cats and horses. In 2011 she went to Denmark as an au pair. The family she was staying had three children and a dog. She end up staying there for 9 months and she had an amazing time! She was responsible for the kids and all the housekeeping. After she came back in Holland she took care of a house and pets of acquaintances who were on holiday in South Africa for five weeks (there is a reference from them attached to our profile). When they came back she could afford to rent a house and started living on her own. She owned two cats for several years who she really adored.

I (29) grew up in a big family (5 kids!) and we always had a dog and some chickens. The house my parents live in has a big garden and I like to help my father maintain it. At 22 I moved out of my parents house and starting living on my own. So I have been taken care of myself and my household for years now. I have been abroad for half a year in 2008 (Curacao) and I have been travelling quite a lot lately.

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 together! We already did some house sits in the region of Perth and would like to get to know more of the Australian culture and people. If you are interested, we would love to hear from you in order to set up a phone or Skype call to see if we are the right fit for you or just have a nice coffee and meet! Just send us a message and see.

Rhett


  • TAS, VIC

I'm a 37 year old media analyst from Melbourne who has the better part of 2016 house/dog sitting across Melbourne and Hobart and would love to keep the ball rolling. Houseproud, respectful, and responsible, I can be relied upon to treat your home and pets as if they were my own.

Most experienced with dogs and cats, I am firmly of the 'pets as family' school when it comes to furry companions. I'm known for taking dogs on long walks and talking to them as if they were people. Very comfortable with active dogs, I have the most experience with staffy's and crosses of similar size.

Growing up in regional Victoria with family in dairy farming also means I know my way around a farm, although perhaps not to the point of driving a tractor.

Having wintered in Tasmania, I am returning to Victoria in October and am looking for housesits in the greater Melbourne area.

Joseph & Naomi


  • Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

We would like to house sit to give us time to get to know the area, figure out where we would like to settle longer term, and help save money towards a house of our own!
We're committed Christians, non-smokers, love pets, are happy to do gardening, and very clean and tidy, enjoy walks and keeping fit. We're sociable and friendly but not party animals, love the outdoors, and are respectful and considerate.

My name is Lea. I am in my 60's, young at heart, fit & active. I enjoy healthy eating & clean living. I am a non-smoker & do not consume drugs or alcohol. I am a mature, professional & work from home. I am accustomed to making decisions & efficiently dealing with whatever comes up. I would treat your home as if it were my very own. I am neat, tidy & good with plants & animals. In fact, I have a great affinity with animals & many years of experience caring for/walking domestic pets. I come from a family of animal lovers & my daughter runs her own pet care business in Sydney, Gaia Pet Care, which I assist with. I have a clean driving record, police checks & references. With no pets of my own right now, I find pet/house sitting extremely satisfying. Housesitting also offers me the opportunity to visit places I have not been to before & to care for animals who require the loving attention & affection they are used to from the owners. It would be my utmost pleasure to take good care of your home & pets.

Sandra


  • Perth

I believe in ‘zen and the art of household maintenance’! Tidy and well organised in the home, I understand the need to care for your valued possessions, indoor plants and gardens. I have a great sense of community with awareness and consideration for those living around me.
Although I no longer have pets of my own, I welcome the opportunity to share time with another family’s furry friends.
Being a research interviewer provides me with flexible working hours. I have no other major commitments and have the time and energy to take your canine mate for walks or enjoy company on the couch with feline friends.
I have been house sitting for two years with repeat visits to satisfied clients.
Written and verbal references provided and all enquiries welcome. Current police clearance.

Denise


  • Melbourne

As a past home owner, I am used to caring for a property and attending to any issues that may arise. I'm a recent cat owner, and in the past have had dogs large (German shepherd) and small (maltese), so I have lots of experience in dealing with pets. I have completed a number of house-sits, both in Melbourne and overseas. Verbal and written references are available.

I'm a mature, professional woman working as a life coach, with occasional agency work in the CBD. I have recently returned from an extended trip to the UK, and am exploring different suburbs before settling into my own place again. I love to cook and garden, and am a quiet-living non-smoker.

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

My name is Kaz, and I am an experienced house/pet sitter. I am 65 years old, non smoker, and love animals - particularly dogs. My last 4 legged companion (Tigger - a retired Greyhound) passed away several years ago. His passing (at the ripe old age of 14) meant I could take on new ventures.

I love new places, and looking after furry kids - fishy, feathered kids if necessary!!

Having worked in extremely remote communities over a 10 year period, I am organised and adaptable, and would look after your home and pets as I would my own. Up until late 2014, I owned my own home. I sold, in preparation to moving to country NSW in November of 2016. I have been permanently housesitting since 2012.

In March of 2014, I closed my landline crystal and mineral business, and moved to selling online. Which means that I work from home. I have my own internet connection, and chose Telstra as my provider, as their coverage is (generally!!) greater.

I have a current "Working with Childrens" check - this check has photo ID, plus is far more thorough than a normal police check.

I am currently booked for the following dates:

17th Feb - 4th March: Wingham.
24th March - 13th April: Bathurst, NSW.
13th April - 18th April: West Haven, NSW.
18th April - 25th April: Lake Cathie, NSW.
26th April to 10th June: Toowoomba, Qld
14th June - 15th July 2017: Scotts Head, NSW.
17th November to 18 December: Port Macquarie, NSW.

Some recent feedback from clients:

"It is always reassuring to know the dogs can be at home rather than in kennels We were able to enjoy planning the trip and then eventually being away with your great service. The dogs were well cared for and obviously enjoyed your presence very much so we are happy too!! No problem if you use these comments". Joe and Anne, Perth, WA

"We were very happy with Kaz. Fergie is a rather strong and dominant rescue dog with a few problems such as separation anxiety and we came back to find her actually better than when we left! So much so, that I have asked Kaz to meet up for a walk with the dog so I can learn from how she handles her!

For the first time ever, our cat had not pined and lost weight. The house was neat and tidy and Kaz had go above and beyond in every respect." Carol and Punch, Perth, WA.

  • 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
