Janet & Steve


  • Sydney, Central Coast, Southern Highlands, Wollongong & Illawarra

Hi home owner, Steve and I are a mature aged couple who are non-smokers and don't have any children. We are very capable, trustworthy and reliable. Janet works from home and Steve is a Territory Manager and occasionally works from home .

Several years ago we sat house for a couple who had 4 large dogs who needed to be walked twice a day. They asked us to sit their house and walk the dogs whenever they went away. Two of the dogs had to have medication which we administered. They also had special diets which the owner made up for them. We sat for this couple again when they went away as they said they could trust us and we had no problems with looking after their 4 dogs.We have also owned a couple of homes ourselves where we owned 2 dogs and a cat.

We fully understand that a pro-active attitude toward home maintenance is essential. Steve is quite a handyman and practical. If there are minor repairs to be taken care of he is certainly capable. We would be happy to look after any type of property. We would care for your home as we did for ours (as we have owned 2 homes in the past) and have no problem in looking after your house, pets and garden.

We would welcome the opportunity to come and see you and would like the opportunity to look after your home. pets and gardens etc. We are also totally flexible with our time for house sitting.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our bio and hopefully we can connect with you soon.

  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. Upper N Shore, Gold Coast & Hinterland

I am a health conscious, sporty, non smoking, single guy who has decided to try housesitting for 12 months to save some $$. I am a business owner so I work from home most days. I am fastidiously clean and hygienic; I've pretty much hung up my party shoes and am now a bit of a home body - I go to bed early and get up early! I have excellent references from 3 highly regarded individuals and these are available upon request. I love animals. I would be looking for medium - long term arrangements as a first preference. I.E minimum 4 weeks (I'm still open to shorter though IF I'm free).

Sue & Tony


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

We are a married couple of 40 years and have always owned our own home and had the enjoyment of living with pets...cats/dogs/horses/fish of all shapes and sizes!
We are based in Sydney. With substantial previous house-sitting experience we are attentive, professional and responsible in our care and maintenance of a home and garden.
We appreciate your pets are precious family members and we will love them as our own providing them with comfort, attention and exercise. Sue has been a full time volunteer at the RSPCA for 3 years.
To support our profile we have extensive housesit references from our Melbourne and Sydney housesits of cats and dogs. We also have available references from a real estate agent in respect to our care for homes and gardens and 2 veterinarians as well as our National Police Certificates. We are non smokers.
We always look forward to being valuable house-sitters for people who care.
Warm Regards,
Sue and Tony Hedges

Sara


  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

I’m 22 years old and work full-time in Human Resources. Luckily due to the nature of the company I work for, I typically work from home at least once or twice a week.
I am clean, tidy, a non-smoker and responsible - I spend most of my time working more than anything else.

I have experience in house sitting, though not yet through this site. Over the course of 3 years, I house sat for a couple who lived between Melbourne and Bangkok for work, and would spend 2 months in each city during that time. They have a young dog that, due to epilepsy, needs medication morning and night at the same time each day (7am and 7pm). With that being said, I know how to administer medications to pets (including eye drops and ointments), and I am willing to make my schedule work to meet the needs of your pet.

I am more than happy to provide a reference from the couple who I house sat for.

Anne-Marie


  • Central Coast, North Coast, South Coast, Southern Tablelands, Bris. Northern suburbs, Sunshine Coast

I love animals! But now I am retired I am unable to have pets where I live. So I fulfill my 'need' for patting and cuddles by pet sitting! I have done many jobs over the past few years. All have been a delight and the pets so precious. From sheep, chooks, dogs, cats of all shapes and sizes I loved them all and cared for them as though they were my own.
My motto is "Your pets and home are my priority".
I am sincere, respectful, caring and a happy individual who loves meeting new people.
I love going to Queensland and I have family there.
I enjoy the South, Central and North Coasts of NSW and the Southern Highlands.
I can supply references on request.

Annette & John


  • South Coast, Wollongong & Illawarra

Hi.
We are a semi-retired couple from Perth with a married daughter living in the Wollongong area. We now find we have more time for extended visits and have flexibility with dates also. We would love to house sit so that we can be close by but independent. Our own family home is surrounded by garden and we have always had family pets, so rest assured we will look after your home, garden and pets in our care.
We are non smokers and live a healthy active lifestyle. We have an active staffy X at home and exercise her daily, so we are more than happy to exercise your dog or dogs. Luckily we have good family and friends who will care for her in our absence, so we will love and care for your pets as our own.
We are clean and tidy and will treat your home and neighbours with the respect we would like people to show in our own home.
Kind regards
Annette

ken & katy


  • Sydney, Central Coast

Hello,

We are Kenny and Katy!

We have recently moved home from living in Quebec, Canada for the last few years. Kenny is French Canadian and I'm Australian. We decided it was now time to give Australia a go after experiencing the Quebec lifestyle.

I'm originally from the Central Coast and have my whole family still living between Sydney and the Gold Coast, so we are in the middle of deciding exactly where we want to position ourselves for the foreseeable future. Right now we need to be in Sydney but where exactly??? This is where housesitting comes into play.

Kenny is a lineman by trade and has secured himself a job in Sydney as a Rope Access technician (abseiling down skyscrapers - yikes!). After 10 years of working in sales, marketing and events I decided to bite the bullet and go to uni. I'm in my 2nd year of my Bachelor of Communication Design at Billy Blue College of Design in Ultimo and loving it. Aside from Uni, I am a social support worker in my spare time.

House sitting is not new to us as we have stayed in many friends and friends of friends houses in Canada while we were travelling to and from Kenny's work jobs on the road. We've both grown up always had animals at home (in Canada - cats, dogs, birds, chickens & ferrets).

We are mindful of maintaining other areas of your property such as keeping plants alive and veggies gardens lush. We have enormous respect for homeowners property and possessions as we would treat it as our very own.

We are 29 and 31 years old, very relaxed and chilled personalities. We lead physically active and healthy lifestyles - Kenny played ice hockey back home and I love yoga/pilates and we both go to the gym. We are a clean and tidy couple and it would be a pleasure to care of your home and your family animals.

We have references from previous house sits and police checks to show if requested.

Cheers,
Katy and Kenny

I am a Retired School Teacher - mother of 2.
I am now living in an Over 50s Village in Toowoomba Queensland.
My partner who is also retired, will be joining me for some of my house sitting positions.
I would like to spend some time in Melbourne to see my daughter occasionally and get to know my grandchildren.
We are also looking for House Sitting along the coast of NSW and Queensland.
I have house sat previously mainly in Canberra.
I have also had 2 Golden Retrievers for 28 years and a cat while the children were growing up.
My Partner has also had pets when his children were growing up and is very experienced in anything mechanical or requiring a little maintenance wherever we are.
I am sure we would be able to care for your home and your pets.
I am able to include 2 references and I have other Phone call references but my partner has only joined me on one house sit and we did not think to get a reference. We are house sitting over Xmas so will make sure we get up to date references.

Sharon


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

Hey Everyone

I'm Sharon Luxford, a corporate professional who is also a house, pet and pool sitter...yes its thing.

I learnt from a 'pool man' during a recent house sit in Paddington that having someone to monitor the level of your pool while you're away can save your filter from blowing up if it gets to low or protect your beautiful landscaping, if it overflows.

True story...

I have house, dog and cat sat for friends and friends of friends over many years and am now a professional looking for house sits in beautiful places in Sydney.

For me, house sitting is a two way relationship...well three or four when you include the pets ;-)

I believe it's important that everyone meets and establishes a relationship before the house sit commences. There needs to be a match...for everyone. The house owner, the house sitter and your furry, finned or feathered babies.

I also have travelled extensively using Airbnb and often stayed in Host's homes while they were away.

I work in the Sydney CBD as a Business Change Manager. I also have my own LinkedIn Profile Writing, Keynote Speaking and Executive Coaching business, called 'Frock Up & Rock Up'.

I love to house and pet sit in light, clean and open spaces with 'views that move'. I am a non-smoker and have my own car. Wi-fi essential, Netflix, Air con, off street or under cover parking (where possible) also always welcome ;-)

In my free time, I like to spend time at the Art Gallery, on and around the harbour foreshore and beaches, at the cinema with Dendy Opera Quays a favourite, op shopping and enjoy cafes in new and interesting locations.

I would love to be of service to you and your friends or family, if you are planning any travel later in 2018 and into 2019 and would like your home and/or pets lovingly cared for while you are away.

I can provide client recommendations and a current Police Check dated 30 October 2018.

Looking forward to meeting you and your beloved pets.

Speak soon

Sharon Luxford

Vardon & Alison


  • SE Vic, SW Vic

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, should you prefer us to stay in your house that will be just fine as well.
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

Greg & Katrina


  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. Southern suburbs, Syd. Upper N Shore, Northern Rivers, Tweed Coast, South Coast, Snowy MTS, Southern Tablelands, Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast, North Eastern

We are a married couple in our 60's who are fairly new to house sitting, and we are very much enjoying the experience.
My name is Greg and I am a retired Airline Pilot. My wife Katrina has worked in many Retail, Customer Service, and Hospitality roles and is very much a "people person". We also had our own Homeware business in the past.
Over the years we have lived in Sydney, Fiji, Melbourne, New Gisborne, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, and Cairns.
We are fit, healthy, and active non-smokers. If we stayed in your home we would respect it and treat it like our own, which is always clean and tidy.
Our experience with pets consists of owning cats and a dog as well as goldfish in the past. At one stage we also owned 20 acres in Victoria where we had sheep of our own, a couple of horses on agistment, and two goats.
We don't currently have pets as we live in an apartment that doesn't allow them. Therefore, we welcome the opportunity to look after and pamper yours.
Our preference is to sit cats only.

I am a mature age house and pet sitter with a background of living in country homes in Queensland...at Mitchell and Mapleton. I have an outgoing personality and have really enjoyed meeting home owners and their pets and am conscientious in fulfilling the unique job description of each assignment.

I have worked in the Real Estate industry in Queensland and have had the responsibility of ensuring security of homes and properties in the absence of home owners.

I love to travel and housesitting has resulted in very successful recent house sitting assignments in New Zealand ,Avalon, near Palm Beach, Pottsville, Bateman's Bay, Cremorne and Mosman Bay...in NSW. I have enjoyed the company of border collies, a labradoodle, caboodle, cats , poultry and horses.

I have attached the references from these assignments.

I would be delighted to introduce myself to you to discuss your specific requirements and instructions in detail.

I will be able to supply more character references and housesitting references, on request.

Hi, my name is Jeanette (known as Nettie) and my husband is Mike. We are retired and enjoy travelling especially to Australia where our only daughter lives. We are an active couple, Mike enjoying cycling and I’m a member of a local walking club and gym and love gardening too.

We are non smokers and tidy people and respect other people’s homes and possessions.

Liz


  • Sydney

Hi there, I am a 35 year old female who’s been housesitting for the last 18 months to help save for a deposit on an apartment. I'm a non-smoker and a huge animal lover who would be more than happy to look after any pets as required. I'm currently working in the CBD, and my family is in Dee Why. So anywhere between the Northern Beaches & city would be ideal. Housesitting/petsitting references available. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks! Liz

ELAINE


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

I am a single retired lady 74 years young (don’t look my age luckily) a non smoker and responsible home owner.
I like to keep a nice home and consequently would carefully look after yours. I am responsible, reliable and considerate and would leave your home as clean and tidy as I found it.
I have previous experience of 2 house sits and three house exchanges in the Sydney area and had no negative feed back from anyone when they returned to their property. I am happy to supply references as well as Police Clearance Certificate.
I would like to find someone who would like to spend Christmas 2019 with their relatives in UK as I have many friends in the areas around Ryde, Sydney where I dance at Top Ryde Civic Centre. Also I would like to stay for a few months at the beginning of 2020 in your summer.

Wayne & Jennifer


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

We are experienced Aussie housesitters, retired accountant and agricultural scientist, grey nomads, non smokers, and both dog and cat lovers, having owned our own pets all our lives, and looked after numerous and various animals as housesitters for other homeowners, like yourselves. My husband and I were introduced to the concept of housesitting when we retired in July 2005. Since then, we have combined travel with housesitting in Australia, New Zealand, England and Europe and made lifelong friends along the way. So far, we have undertaken 120+ housesits over the past 13 years since retiring from full time employment. For ourselves during the course of our life, we have owned large dogs; boxers and german shepherds – all obedience trained - also cats, fish and poultry. We both retired from our jobs in the Northern Territory and sold our home, with a swimming pool, owned for 20 years. We plan on continuing to travel whilst we are healthy and until we get the travel bug out of our system. Our motto is to treat your home and pets as we would expect our own home and pets to be treated - with respect, love and care.
I was born and bred on a farm in South Australia, lived there for 21 years before moving to the Northern Territory, where my working life continued as an accountant. My husband is a Queenslander, and worked as an agricultural scientist in 2 Australian states, during the course of his working career.
We can provide written references, photos and police clearances, if you require further info. – but basically, we are just ‘grey nomads’ – enjoying retirement and travelling around England, Europe and Australia whilst we still have our health and are able to travel. Thanks for your time

Hi there!
I am a professional 38 years old lady who has just moved to Sydney, and am available to house / pet sit for you.
I am a pet-lover and am very used to looking after cats and/or dogs. I would look after your home and pets as if they are my own.
I am working Mon-Fri 9/5 in Sydney CBD, so your pets would have to be ok with being home alone during the working week, but aside from that I can give them lots of love and attention.
Please contact me for further details and references.

Helen & Tony


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

We are two retired, active, music and food loving schoolteachers with a penchant for travelling and enjoying new experiences. We have been involved in house and pet sitting for many years and in many places throughout Australia and overseas. While we have a home in Adelaide, we enjoy a nomadic lifestyle in our motorhome, which makes it unfair to have pets of our own. Housesitting allows us to indulge our love of animals and over the years we have cared for many dogs, cats, birds, horses, sheep, goats, cattle and the like, with dogs, whether big and boisterous or small and cuddly, being our special love. We are also meticulous in the attention we give to each property, whether it be an apartment, a suburban block or a rural spread. Recent experiences have included a 10 month stint on a Daintree acreage, return visits to a horse property and 3 months caring for two houses in the south of France. As Tony is something of a dab hand at housework and property maintenance and Helen is an expert at quality control, you can rest assured that your property and pets will be cared for as if they are our own. We will happily provide you with contact details for phone referees if required.

I like a clean and tidy house and love to garden..We are happy to provide references upon request
Being registered with the VIT we have appropriate police checks

Marley & ADRIANNA


  • Melbourne

"I'll take care of your pets and home as if they were my own."

Hi There!
I'm a 32yo single female who has recently returned to Melbourne after living abroad. I LOVE animals and can't imagine my life without them.
So far I have taken care of;
- A larger than life Great Dane and a very intelligent yet goofy Hungarian Vizsler and two budgies.
- Two of the most loving and snuggly Minature Schnauzer's
- A Golden Retriever who was my shadow for 2 weeks and his Kitty friend along with 2 stick insects
- A happy go lucky Staffy and her two kitty sisters
- Vinne the pug, naughty but oh so adoreable
As you can see, I have experience with both dogs (big and small, strong and not so) and cats (I used to have two beautiful fur babes of my own) along with other small pets including mice, fish and insects!
I'm very clean and a bit of a home-body who loves to cook, read and keep fit.
I have glowing references that can be supplied upon request :)!

Hi There,

I'm Adrianna, I joined Marley for most of the housesits mentioned above. I have a Cavoodle Dexter and a orange Tabby cat Winnie at home who will be looked after my parents (in the outer suburbs) while I'm housesitting. I work in marketing and I've just started a new job in Fitzroy so would like to be closer to work. I also love the company of pets therefore looking to house sit. I'm waiting for my European passport to arrive so I can join Marley in the UK.

I'm very clean and will keep your house tidy as if it's my own.
I have a police check which is uploaded to my profile.

Tanya & Rod


  • Murray & Riverina, Bris. Northern suburbs, Bris. Southern suburbs, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

We are a married, healthy, retired couple, both non-smokers who have been house sitting full time for over 3yrs. Having sold our business (in Port Macquarie, NSW) 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 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 may arise.We are conscious of the care and security required to maintain a property.



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.    We enjoy gardening and look forward to tending the different gardens that come with house-sitting.



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



We have travelled extensively around Australia & in parts of Europe and love the experience new places can offer. When travelling 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 us time to slowly discover new places, meet people and enjoy the company of pets of all varieties, both large & small.



We are able to provide references (from other house sitting sites) and Police clearances.


Witold


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, VIC

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 very tidy and keep my surrounds clean and uncluttered. 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. I enjoy relating and caring for them. In my younger days I spent time on farms in Poland and enjoyed a lot of interaction with other domesticated animals.
Following the sale of my last house in Suffolk Park in 2016 I have moved to house sitting.  So far I have looked after a variety of properties and animals: dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, fish, turtles, lorrikeets, cockatiels, goats, cattle, sheep, horses, alpacas and donkeys.
House sitting has been a wonderful and rewarding experience. It is a great way to see new parts of Australia and to give the owners freedom to travel by taking good care of their places. All my references show that my hosts were very happy with my sits.

Neil & Laura


  • Adelaide

Laura and I are both 37 years of age, non-smokers and are engaged. We both met at University in the North East of England and spent a year travelling around Australia in 2009. We are now fulfilling our dream of moving to Australia on a permanent basis.



We love being outdoors and exploring new places and suburbs of individual cities, so house sitting is an ideal way for us to find the area of Adelaide we want to settle in. If we can get our fix of animals whilst doing this, that can only be a bonus!



Laura and I have both grown up around cats and dogs (and the occasional hamster). We left a family staffy called Sally behind when we left the UK...who is daft as a brush, but we miss her very much. We also had another family dog called Sam, who we had for 14 years, but recently lost to old age (he was nearly 17) Sam was a Heinz 57 dog, that is to say he was made up of several breeds of dog. We have both had cats growing up called Guiness and Felix who were both outdoor cats and we regularly looked after Laura's sisters cats, Maisie and Maggie.



We are used to caring for dogs on a daily basis and enjoy long walks with them and cuddles. Whilst being here the last few months we have completed 5 house/pet sits, including three longer term sits, looking after both dogs and cats. (Coco the cat, Diego & Yogi, who are two Shelties, Tim Tam the Kelpie, Seb & Jess, two Labradors and Eddie the Staffy and his sister, Ivy the Cat). Please see our references from some of these sits.



We look forward to being able to continue pet sitting and meet some more wonderful animals.

  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

I am moving to take up a new full-time position with Elders in Tassie.
I have previously house sat and can provide a reference if needed.
I am a tidy person and can look after the garden. My interests are tennis, golf and reading and this house in Mt Stuart would provide the perfect opportunity to tide me over while I look for a permanent residence.I have friends I can stay with until its available.
