I travelled east in 2015 after having lived in Perth for 18 years. I am wanting to do more house-sits and will be leaving my little girl =^:^= with a house-sitter until I eventually settle somewhere, although perhaps I won't settle and will continue to 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
Dear Home Owner,I am a reliable, trustworthy, practical, clean and tidy, considerate and quiet, mature woman. I am active, a non-smoker and love walking – dogs too! As a part time lecturer in Graphic Design I am at home a lot, and wish to house sit so I can afford the time to research and write. I am fond of animals and am happy to care for them as if they were my own while you are away.I have experience house sitting in Watsons Bay (where I looked after two fish ponds and the garden for 2 months), Elizabeth Bay (where I looked after an aquarium of beautiful tropical fish and a cat for 1 month) and Ryde (where I looked after a dog and the garden for 6 weeks).I can supply references upon request, and look forward to the opportunity of meeting with you and the possibility of caring for your home, pets and plants.Thank you,Desiree DeKlerk

I couldn’t have asked for better sitters! They visited beforehand to meet our dogs and I immediately felt very comfortable that Lucy and Murray would take great care of our dogs. They were very dedicated to looking after the dogs and respectful of our apartment, leaving it spic and span. Our dogs were very happy in their company as Lucy and Murray happily followed the daily routine we requested, including letting them sleep in their bed with them. I will definitely ask them to sit for us again. Lisa King 11 August 2015Reference — Lucy Sdao & Murray PollardIn March 2015 we embarked on a 5 week trip and was looking for someone to housesit and care for our dog and rabbit. Fortunately Lucy & Murray were able to help us out.Lucy and Murray kept in contact throughout our trip with updates on our elderly dog Hank who required some additional care with medicine. We were very happy to also receivephotos of Murray and Hank together!The house was left immaculately with not a thing out of place. In fact the only evidence that we found of their stay was some food in the cupboards — they even left the wheelie binempty!Lucy and Murray were fantastic housesitters and we would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone.Jade van Gestel0420 750475MONA VALE NSW 2103 10 November 2015TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERNLucy & Murray of Avalon Sydney NSW were house sitters at my home x 6 weeks September & early October 2015.I have 4 dogs and it seems, during my absence, they loved them to death ! the dogs totally fell in love with Murray and Murray with the dogs.

Professional teacher, clean, non-smoker, no children. I have recently returned from Singapore and will return to Singapore in late July to commence a new work contract in the Physical Education department of a large International school. I have been a house sitter for a number of years for people on this site and externally to this site. I love to look after pets and would care for your home and garden as if it was my own. I have a full police clearance which is required in order to be registered as a teacher in Australia, and no criminal record. I love cycling and simply reading a good book in a relaxing garden with the dog or cat. I am a home owner - it is rented out at the moment, as I have been overseas teaching for a number of years, and I will keep it rented at this stage. I have cared for modern and older homes with antiques and artefacts. The home owners have been so pleased with the way in which the home is cared for, and indeed the pets. I keep in contact via email during the stay if required, and send pics of the happy pets. I have had to care for pets on medication with tablets / eye drops etc, and this is not a problem. All previous house sits continue to call me prior to looking for a sitter. I have taken pets to their usual vet as required during some sits and owners have been very pleased.I have multiple sits where I have previously sat and the owners want me back, which I feel quite proud of. During Christmas last year I looked after a very large home in Kew with 2 Burmese cats. This was a word of mouth sit from previous Happy House Sitter homeowners who I have sat for.I can supply details of previous house sits and my references are available on this site.Best regardsDavid
I am a zoologist turned pilot training for an adventure to circumnavigate Australia in a microlight at the start of 2019 to raise awareness for shorebird conservation (www.wingthreads.com). To help me afford to do this, I am looking for house-sitting jobs in the Lake Macquarie/Newcastle area while I train and work with AirBorne microlights and hang gliders at Lake Macquarie airport and Redhead factory from Jan-Jul 2018.I am a quiet person and a non-smoker. When at home I lead an exciting life of writing, reading, drawing and drinking cups of tea! I especially love birds and birdwatching.***PET SITTING***I love animals but prefer to take care of cats. ***REFERENCES***I am an experienced house sitter and would be happy to provide references from past house sits and landlords in the Newcastle area and Perth, . Thank you for taking the time to consider me as your house sitter. I look forward to hearing from you soon! :)
Hi my name is Danielle and I am a single, mature ex country girl with loads of experience with a host of animals from ponies & piggies to parrots, peacocks, alpacas, chickens and many more. Nothing is too much trouble especially elderly dogs and cats who are my specialty as they definitely do need that extra attention. I know how precious these senior citizens are as my beloved "moose dog" lived just past his 17th birthday and I always hated leaving him during his last few years but I was lucky enough to have a gem of a carer whom I trusted to look after him when I had to leave him for the odd week every now and then.I can administer medications, tend to grooming and dietary requirements...whatever is needed to ensure your babies are perfectly looked after whilst you are away.I am exceptionally fit (non smoker) & will see to it they get all the exercise they may currently get and in addition there will be bucket loads of cuddles and then some, as we all know too many cuddles are never enough!I have 2 green thumbs and have a good knowledge of plants so if you are a plant lover like me you can relax knowing that they will be as robust on your return as when you left.I am a meticulous house keeper & would look after your home as if it were my own. All of my previous house sitters will attest to this and I can supply excellent references from all of my house sitting clients as well as having a current police clearance. It is always good to get a feel for someone to see if they are a good fit with you & your pets and I am happy to have a one on one with you so you can see if I am what you are looking for in a house sitter......Danielle
We are a retired professional couple in our 60's living in our own house in Brisbane's western suburbs. (see the photo).We are keen to house-sit in Melbourne as our son, a doctor at Western Hospital, has our first grandson. They live in Kensington in Melbourne.As owners of a large house, we are familiar with what it takes to care for and maintain a house, so will look after and respect your home for house sitting in the same way. We also both enjoy gardening and growing our own vegetables. We have had border collie dogs in the past as family pets while our children were growing up so are very aware of exercising dogs. We are non smokers and like to fill our days travelling, cooking, reading, sailing or pursuing cultural activities. We have a reference and police check and would be very happy to talk on Face time or Skype to be interviewed and to get to know you. In addition our son can meet you and your pet to ensure mutual agreement.
I am active and healthy, love life in general, have a love of nature and therefore love walking, I enjoy the company of our little four-legged beings, be that cat, dogs or the two-legged kind in chickens, birds etc.,I am very quiet, I am loyal and respectful I live a very quiet life I enjoy my yoga and reading and walking, working on my website.I do prefer at this stage to stay within the Brisbane area and outer suburbs whilst I am still working, but that will change in the next few years. I understand that your biggest asset, your home, and your treasured and loved pets need great people to care for them. I would love to help.Please consider my expression of interest, even though I work, looking after your pets and your property, making sure everything is given the utmost attention is of a top priority for me. I have total respect for myself therefore for you and your needs as well.I am also a Justice of the Peace in Queensland. Thank you for reading, look forward to your response.Enjoy your day.Best RegardsCheryle
Dear Sir and Mrs,we are to German Students and currently looking for a house sitting property. We will be in Australia for 2-3 years and we thought that house sitting would be the best opportunity to get used to the life and culture in Australia. We are responsible, self-motivated and really friendly. The most important thing is, that we have years experience looking after pets. We own cats, chickens and we are used to dogs as well. Looking forward to hearing from you.Kind regards Serkan and Remi

Hi,I am available to sit in Sydney's Northern Beaches & North Shore.I am a 45 year old single, non-smoking, part time personal trainer/ alternate therapist.I moved out of an apartment in Narraweena due to being flooded with requests to house sit for people!I enjoy the diversity of pets, locations and homes that house sitting brings.I am a very responsible, quite, organised and reliable person. Detail what you'd like like me to do with pets and gardening etc and it shall be done! I tend to spend a lot of my time in the home working on my budding alternate therapies business which may be advantegous with pets. I grew up with dogs. I am fit and strong and can thus handle large dogs. My aim is to leave your home and Pets in the same condition as when I arrived!! Please see my references and/or contact me with any queries.Regards,Ashley
Hi! I’m Janice, nice to meet you! As a professional nanny I began housesitting back in college and have always really enjoyed it. I am here because I love to experience new places and like to move around a lot. I have housesitting experience that ranges from small cottages with gardens that need tended all the way to enormous mansions with multiple pets. I have looked after fish, cats, a variety of dogs, and even a couple reptiles. I am also a BIG fan of gardens and happy to help with your plants while you travel. I am an American here in Australia on a skilled worker’s visa as a writer. I work at least part-time from home, so having a nice housesit suits my lifestyle. I am clean, tidy, responsible, and trustworthy. I get along well with animals and am happy to give them all the love I can. I am happy to supply references from multiple families and individuals. I have always received sits through word of mouth, so I am new to this site, but you're welcome to call or email anyone I've sat for in the past. As a house sitter I can promise I’ll look after your home with attention and respect. It’s exciting and useful to me to get assignments, and I love to return the favour. I’d love to meet in person if you’d like to chat about me looking after your home whilst you are away and I appreciate you looking at my profile!
HiI'm a 46 year old single professional working on my PhD and working on a pilot project (a Mental Health Crisis Team with Victorian Police) as well as part-time contract lecturing at university. My job is very stressful so when I come home I want a quiet place to unwind and relax (and study after some procrastinating).I'm incredibly tidy and organised so your place will be spotlessly immaculate when you return. I prefer the company of one or two friends for a quiet meal at a café or restaurant rather than big get together's (which has a lot to do with the fact that I can’t cook to save myself so I don’t inflict my lack of gourmet skills on others). I love animals (so if you have pets they will be well cared for) and I like pottering around the garden (so if you have a garden it will be loved too).I’m interested in house-sitting as a way of checking out different areas around Melbourne so that when I’m ready to buy I can make an informed choice. It also means that I can work part-time while I’m working towards my PhD. Because house sit full time, I’m good at it and you know you’re getting someone professional and reliable. I have a Federal Police Check and a Working with Children Check for your reassurance too.I’m a pretty introverted person and like to keep to myself, but I also think community is really important, so looking out for your neighbours and making sure they’re okay is really important to me. I have outstanding rental, house sitting and Air BNB references that will impress you. I hope to have the privilege of sitting for you one day.Kind Regards,Geoff
After studying yoga for a few years I've been moving between retreat and meditation courses and work in Sydney.House sitting gives me the flexibility to do this and I enjoy looking after pets and spending time in different neighbourhoods. It's been working out well.I'm respectful and tidy, and pets tend to warm to me easily. I grew up with a Jack Russell and have cared for many animals before. I had the honour of watching over two horses and ten chooks for a little while recently.I like to get a good idea of your expectations and follow the pet's routine to keep everyone happy. References and police check are available, please just ask. I'm new to this site though I have the following endorsements from another one:"Alex was our very first Aussie House Sitter. From the very first meeting we felt comfortable that our fur baby would receive the love and care that we would give her. Not once while we were away did I ever feel like I should be worried. Upon our return, our apartment was left in the same condition as we left it. He also fixed our sink, which I thought was amazing. We HIGHLY recommend Alex and will use him again on our next travel."BENJAMIN (North Sydney NSW, Jan 2018)"We were very pleased with the condition of the house, garden and cat. We would certainly use him again."HELEN (Pennant Hills NSW, Jul 2017 - 3 months)"Alex was a fantastic housesitter - clean, respectful, helpful and I couldn't recommend him more! Even my cat warmed to him and she's pretty selective. Thanks again." ROBYN (Surry Hills NSW, Mar 2017)"Alex was the best house sitter we've had so far. He was polite, considerate, very clean, tidy, intelligent, and very reliable. Recommend" GRANT (Forest Lodge NSW, Dec 2016)Please ask anything you would like; We could do video-call or meet in person to discuss what you expect. Let me know how you are going and thanks for considering me.
We are a mature age professional non-smoking couple. With occupations in healthcare and sales/management, we have excellent work and life ethics and would guarantee you would be pleased with us caring for your home and pets. We have rented out our house on Sunshine Coast and are now working and travelling our way around Australia in our caravan. We are fastidious with keeping our home/caravan in a high level of cleanliness We are always willing to house sit in rural areas or provincial towns as we would to be able to park our van. We are happy to sit in suburban areas if there is space to safely park our caravan. We are able to house sit for longer periods of time. We would consider it a privilege to look after your house or farm, pets and gardens. References available on request. Over last few years we have house sat across eastern Australia including Bendigo, Caloundra, Alexandra Headlands, Hervey Bay, Burleigh Waters, Mount Cotton and Sheidow Park SA.
HelloI am an experienced house sitter and have looked after both surburan and rural properties (100ac farms), my house sits have included looking after all sorts of furry and feathered friends. I have also had my own animals (dogs, cats, horses, chooks, ducks and even reptiles!) and have been a property owner before so I know what a challenge it is to put your trust in someone else to look after things whilst you are on holidays. I am sensible, respectful, reliable and professional and will take care of your home and any furry family members as if they were my own. I am a non smoker, don't do drugs and am clean and tidy. I enjoy outdoor activites (horseriding, skiing, bush walking) and work full time (not crazy hours and can work from home occasionally) in a senior Human Resources role near Castle Hill. I have also had veterinary experience previously managing a large group of veterinary hospitals and have a great network of friends still working in the veterinary industry. I have my own car and am fairly handy around the home. If you would like to know more please let me know. I prefer longer house sits but am happy to discuss any particularly if they are regular.RegardsLinda
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, including South West Rocks, Hat Head, Nambucca, Port Macquarie, Foster, Laurieton,North Haven, Urunga, Coffs Harbour, Yamba and Iluka. We have previously house sat and have engaged house sitters. See references.
Being 43 (and female) I come house trained. I like to keep things tidy and appreciate a home that is well loved. Having had my own home and pets, I totally understand the importance of maintaining the home and the responsibility that comes with owning pets such as love, cuddles, litter changing, daily walks and of course the importance of keeping things regular especially around meal times. I'm an animal lover at heart, always have been - having had animals my entire life (dogs, cats and birds), I couldn't imagine my world without the love or company of a furry friend, they simple make your world brighter. I am single and a non-smoker and I of course have references and, a smile. I enjoy the change and adaptability that comes with house sitting - it's the ultimate of being in service to one another. As I work for myself and a small part-time job on the side, my days are varied but generally, I have the luxury of not working the 9-5 and spend most mornings at home. If you're looking for that person who will treat your home as they would their own then I look forward to hearing from you. Amanda
Gavin and myself, along with our two boys Jack (10) and Clancy (6) are travelling around Australia in 2018. We set out from home, Hobart Tasmania in December ‘17 and are making our way around the country in an anticlockwise direction. The opportunity to housesit would give us a break from the camper trailer and allows us to dwell quietly for a little longer in places, whilst caring for your place and pets exactly as you require. Aside from professional work and family life in Tassie, we own our own home and run our own self contained studio from here through Airbnb ( link on request). This means we have a keen understanding of cleaning and maintaining a place to the highest standard and making people feel welcome and at home. As a builder, Gavin is able to fix just about anything around the place which is handy! This has served us well when we have been caretakers in the past, including 2 months in Bass Strait caretaking Three Hummock Island and 2 months at the Quarantine Station on Bruny Island (references on request) We have also used our skills to work overseas as experts after natural disasters, most recently travelling with the boys to Vanuatu after Cyclone Pam. These experiences have put us in various accommodation and the boys know how to respect and care for other people, places and property. We love animals, Gav being from a farm, and have had pets up to leaving home. We expect to make the experience of house sitting a win-win for us and you, the house owner. Please feel free to contact either Jo or Gav and we really look forward to meeting you.
