  • Sydney

My husband Julian and I have been living in Sydney for about four years, we are both South american, Julian is from Argentina and I am from Uruguay. I am a student and work as a housekeeper while Julian works in a demolition company.
We love and deeply miss having the company of pets that unfortunetely because of our current living situation can’t have.
We are very relaxed, enjoy reading, having a swimm, spending time in nature and playing with any lovely furry creature, dog, cat, bunny, you name it!
We are both very reponsible and enjoy spending our time together in a clean and tidy environment. We don’t drink nor smoke and enjoy a tranquil atmosphere.
We assure you that we will treat your home as it were our own, keep it nice and neat while we spend our time playing and taking care of your pet.
I’ll be happy to contact you with one of my current clients so that you can have a reliable reference. I also have an Australian Police Check from May this year as I needed it for my job as I have access to my clients homes while they are away.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions,
Looking forward hearing from you!

Marisse


  • SA

Hello homeowners, I have relocated to Adelaide to take up housesitting full time.
Many of my sits over the last three years have been with and through friends and personal referrals.
I have excellent rental references from my past rentals and a National Police Clearance.
I am a healthy, clean living non smoker. I enjoy walking and love to be outdoors gardening or alternatively, curled up with a good book and an animal or two for company.

Rowena & Edel


  • Perth

I am female, 44yo, with no children or pets.

I am a non-smoker smoker and I rarely drink.

I work full-time on an afternoon shift 2pm-10pm.

I have done housesitting in the past, but have only recently started again.

I am happy to apply for a current Police clearance if you request one.

I have experience with cats, dogs, chooks, mice, lizards. Not much experience with snakes, but I like them, so no problems with handling or feeding them if you show me what's required.

Happy to look after larger animals/stock, but limited experience. Willing to learn.

Happy to mow lawns, water gardens, put bins out etc.

Finally, I'm more than happy to meet or even stay prior to a sit if required.

John & Ann


  • Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland

We are a retired couple, experienced house sitters, enjoying retirement on the beach at the Sunshine Coast, quite close to grandchildren. We are living in a Unit, missing occasional contact with good pets and more space. Occasionally, we are keen on staying in Brisbane close to our daughter's restaurant at Coorparoo. We would treat your house and garden as our own. Hobbies include book clubs, snooker, Celtic music, and surfing. We can supply references or a police check if necessary.

John


  • NSW

I am currently living in a Retirement Village. I am free to come and go as I please. I wish to become a house sitter as I want to experience living in various locations. I plan to sell my rented home in Sydney and buy a unit in Sydney or country NSW on the coast in which to live. I have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. As my children had pets I have had experience caring for cats & dogs. I am a tidy individual who likes to live in a clean well kept environment. I am a man of sober habits & I exercise regularly and meditate to keep physically and mentally fit.

John Harkins bio:

John graduated from the University of NSW as an Engineer and operated his own management consulting company for many years (www.unitconsulting.com.au). John is a retired Reserve Naval Officer.A Character Reference & a Police Check are enclosed.

JOHN HARKINS’ CHARACTER REFERENCE PROVIDED BY EMAIL

Fri 2/06/2017 1:52 PM

RE: John Harkins Character Reference

I have known John Harkins for approximately 20 years.

In my role as a business managers and owner, I have worked with many contractors and consultants, and in my opinion John is one of the most honest, hardworking, tenacious and principled people I know.

As far as is reasonably, or even unreasonably possible, John will do exactly as he promised he would do, on time or early, and will tell the absolute truth about what has happened and why. In other words, if John tells you about the past, then it happened, and if he tells you about the future, then it will happen! Naturally, John can be proven wrong by circumstance and outside forces, but when it comes to things turning out the way he promised, he will make extraordinary efforts to ensure that you can rely on his word.

Further, John is extremely loyal to his personal and professional relationships and partnerships. If you entrust something to John, he will take care of it, and you, with all his strength and ability – and as a highly tenacious individual, that is saying something.

I stayed in John’s house as a “boarder” for a few days a week, for about a year, while travelling into Sydney on business a few years ago. John is a very house-proud and particular man, everything has a place and everything is in its place. He allowed me plenty of freedom to “make myself at home”, and looked after the property I left in the room from week to week, and his Golden Rule is simple: leave it as it was when you found it, or better.

In reciprocity, for a few days a week for a year or more, I allowed John to use my Sydney-based vehicle while I travelled overseas; he follows his own advice, always surprising me with excellent care and attention to my car; perhaps he leaves it full of gas, perhaps he takes it in for a service, perhaps he cleans it; common courtesy perhaps, but that’s exactly what you hope for, when you leave a valuable asset in someone else’s care.

In summary, I have no hesitation in recommending John for the role he has indicated he’s interested in (house-sitting), and I’m confident he will protect and defend the owner’s property, and consequently live up to your trust in him.

Kind regards

Robin & Kevin


  • Canberra, Sydney, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, Brisbane, South Eastern, Central Coast (Qld), Northern QLD, Melbourne, SE Vic

Having travelled extensively, we have house, farm and boat sat around the world for years. This has included large and small animal care, from horses to mice and almost everything in-between. Both of us are animal lovers and are experienced horse riders and sailors and my husband, a ‘green-fingered’ gardener.

We intend travelling up / down the east coast of Australia from Melbourne to northern QLD and back (x2) from Jan 2020 to Dec 2022 starting in Melbourne in late Jan 2020. The main reason for this trip is in order for me to capture the countryside etc during our travels, on canvas (I am an artist) and to exhibit the paintings and drawings on our return trip as well as publish a book of said pictures in 2023.

Our time, therefore, is highly flexible and we are prepared to house / farm / equine establishment /pet /livestock sit for both short and long stays.

We are house proud and you can be assured that we will care for your home accordingly. We have a long list of references (all readily contactable) listed here as well as on request if more are required.

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.

Reference: Susie Tapp

To whom it may concern:
I have had the pleasure of knowing Susie Tapp since January 2014
During this time Susie Tapp has had a 12 month lease on a two bedroom Granny Flat on the lower floor of our home.
To the present time, now over 15 months she has proved to be a reliable and very respectful tenant.
Susie has paid her rent without default and we did not hesitate to renew her lease for another 12 months, as she requested.

Most importantly she has maintained our property well. We were able to be absent, knowing that all would be fine.
She is dependable, friendly, kind, and generous, helpful beyond what could be reasonably required.
I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Susie Tapp for whatever position she considers herself qualified to fill.

Yours faithfully,
David Ironside

23 March 2019

To whom it may concern,
Susie Tapp looked after our home and our three cats during the first week of March, this year, while we holidayed in New South Wales.
When we first met Susie about a month prior to this, we immediately felt comfortable about leaving our home and animals in her capable hands.
At our request, Susie kept in touch with us while we were away, so we were able to check on how our cats were going in our absence.
All our cats are rescue cats who, although friendly, are very cautious of strangers, and they generally take a long time to become comfortable with those they don’t know. One of our cats is particularly nervous and has a habit of not eating when feeling anxious or unsafe.
When we got back after just a week, however, it seems Susie had already managed to create a good relationship with all the cats and had even managed to have them sitting on her lap. They all looked relaxed, well, and cared for on our return.
In addition to taking great care of our cats, Susie also looked after our home, which was spotless on our return.
We will not hesitate to ask Susie to house and pet sit for us again in the future and have, in fact, booked her for three weeks in March next year.

Regards,
Tina & Becca

She has developed friendships along the way and has been respectful to all of us that have interacted with her here in the US.

Ms. Tapp is responsible and shows great respect toward the different members of the family.

She has been left in charge of caring and managing the daily aspects of the home with not giving us any reason for concerns.

Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me at my email address:

Thank you for your interest in this matter.

To whom it may concern:

I have known Susie Tapp in the capacity of Housesitter for our bed and breakfast  property at Reesville near Maleny. She has provided this service for us while we were on holiday in February 2019, and is doing so currently while we are overseas for 2 months.

This included full house cleaning, laundering of linens, and preparation for arriving guests. She also was on hand to meet and greet guests and attend to any issues that might arise during their stay.

Susie was entirely professional, well received by guests and scrupulously honest. She has no hesitation in going above and beyond her expected duties to ensure our guests have the best possible experience while staying in our house. She has a very welcoming manner and is very thoughtful, and aware of the need to create the best possible impression when dealing with guests.

In addition she has looked after our pet dog and cat, with genuine affection for them. This included administering medical treatment for our dog, which was done very diligently. We have felt confident to holiday away, knowing our home, business and pets are in caring and capable hands.

I would recommend Susie to anyone needing a responsible and caring housesitter, and happy to provide a verbal reference if required in addition to this testimonial.


Kind regards

  • Melbourne

I am a single, 30 year old non-smoking professional who works as a Teaching Associate at Monash University. I am currently living in Mentone though as my lease expires early July, I am looking for an alternative option to renting as I am also undertaking my PhD candidature at Monash so my funds are rather limited. I love the company of pets - I rescued my last two animals. However, this is not a prerequisite. I am extremely neat, clean and house proud. My work, studies and my regular exercise routine (Pilates and hiking) keeps me busy so I really enjoy my space and quiet time. Looking forward to having a chat. Thanks :)

Jenny & Peter


  • Darwin, Bris. Northern suburbs, Bris. Southern suburbs, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast, Mackay & Whitsundays, Adelaide, Hobart, Launceston, Devonport, Melbourne, Northern Vic, SW Vic, S. Western

We have sold our lifestyle block, dream home and animals, preferring to travel and the good company of new friends. We are currently undecided about our final destination. We resigned from our jobs in November 2015 and have spent the last 3.5 years travelling the world and house sitting. We have enjoyed the hospitality of many kind, like minded people across the world, leaving wonderful memories and enjoyed finding our way in new lands and communities.We love life, people, animals, good wine, good coffee, good food and great company.

Our pet-caring experience is extensive and varied - dogs (large & small), cats, fish, ponies, sheep, quails, chickens etc.

If you have pets, be assured that we truly appreciate the security they feel with a familiar schedule/exercise/playtime routine and promise you that your customs, requirements and feeding schedule will be adhered to.

However, we know from experience, it's not just animals who can suffer from separation anxiety! To remedy this we send regular updates of your pets.

We are practical people and as experienced house sitters are used to dealing with a wide variety of issues - blown fuses, power outages, water issues, pools, security, etc.

In summary: -
- We offer honesty, reliability and commitment.
- We guarantee security-conscious, respectful care of your property.
- We assure you that your pets will have plenty of attention and loving company whilst you are away.

If you want to see what we've been up to for the last 2 years check out our blog www.virgoswilltravel.wordpress.com. There's no advertisements and we're not trying to sell anything. It's just a fun record of our travels and housesits.

We are always keen to Skype or Facetime to get to know you and answer any important questions.

We very much look forward to hearing from you.

Police checks and additional references are available on request.

  • ACT, NSW

Profile: Ann Minards
The Empty Nesters
Now that we have retired, and our kids have scatter to as far afield as Europe, we are bravely looking forward to a freer lifestyle. Though we do miss Coco, our recently departed Maltese Terrier x Shih Tzu, and Zutch the Bernese Mountain super Dog! So being able to care for your best friend would be an absolute pleasure. We have also owned cats, chickens, ducks, rabbits and sheep, as well as being host to a resident platypus and many wild birds.
We have owned several homes over the years, including a 5ha hobby farm in Tasmania, and have had cause to use house sitters ourselves ; with mixed results. So, we know what it’s like to trust your home and beloved pets to others while you are away. We are a houseproud couple, and when we had to be away, we expected to return to a house in same order as it was left. Therefore, Peter and I intend to extend to you the same courtesy to you after we have been entrusted with minding your home.
As a couple, you can be assured that both inside and out will be taken cared of and your pets/live stock will receive ample love and attention. We also want to reassure you that, having travelled extensively and experienced flight delays and cancelations etc., if for some reason you are delayed and can’t make it back on time, we will never abandon your home and pets. If we have another commitment elsewhere, I will stay on for as long as needed and Peter will go ahead of me. All I would ask is for a lift to the nearest railway or bus station on your return.
Having just recently embarked on our change of lifestyle, we have yet to build a reference portfolio on housesitting, however, during our travels we have been awarded a five-star rating by the hosts on Airbnb in all the categories they rate their guests. Similarly, our application for reports from the NSW Police have yet to be returned but feel assured that within 2 to 3 weeks we will have them available for your inspection.
With the maturity and experience that comes from raising a family along with various pets, you can be assured that if any problem did arise while you were away, it will be dealt with in a calm and sensible manner.
Kind regards,
Ann and Peter

I am a mature, responsible, semi-retired Aussie who has extensive house sitting experience.. I work from a home base on my laptop, so I am home most of the time.

I am a non-smoker and of sober habits.

I have completed many house sitting assignments, looking after a variety of domestic pets (dogs, cats, birds) and farm animals (cows, bulls, goats, ducks, chickens, horses, and alpacas).

I'm particularly fond of all animals, and would enjoy the opportunity to care for yours as my own.

I am also comfortable in administering pets medications as required.

My interests include gardening, meditation, Yoga, Pilates, diet related health, song writing and singing.

I appreciate the value and importance of a home, and have always endeavored to care for homes I live in as if they were my own.

I am currently available to assist you with your house sitting requirements during the following dates;

23/10/19- 8/12/19 inclusive
11/1/20- 22/1/20 inclusive
7/2/20-28/4/20 inclusive

There are homeowner’s reviews of all my house sits on my other profile page @
https://mindahome.com.au/house-sitters-available/honest-mature-responsible-house-sitter.~tcz

I can provide personal/character references upon request.

I would be more than happy to chat with you at a mutually convenient time to discuss your house sitting needs further.

I hope to hear from you and look forward to being able to house sit your home and care for your property and beloved pets.

Kind Regards
James
