WHAT HOME OWNERS SAY:

Very responsible, mature and easy going house sitters. Their response and management of an unexpected plumbing issue was handled very well, and we were able to get back to enjoying our holiday sooner as a result. Highly recommended.

Kate and Zac


Jess and Simon took excellent care of our home and groodle pup while we were on holiday. We loved getting pictures and updates about her, it made us miss her a little less. We've kept in touch since their house sit and Jess has even baby sat for us.

Chris and Mel


When we got back our home was immaculate, our dog was happy and the plants were healthy. We found Jess and Simon extremely reliable and trustworthy.

Hiria


  • Melbourne

I am an animal lover from way back and although I can't have a pet of my own, I make up for that by being the best aunty I can be to your fur baby! Growing up in New Zealand, we always had dogs, cats, and birds in the house, so I am very comfortable around animals. I have lived in Melbourne since 2011 and have been house & pet sitting for friends and family every now and then, and making it a permanent activity late 2018. I work full-time for a charity organisation based in Prahran, play softball throughout the year, volunteer as an English tutor for adult migrants, and spend way too much time on Netflix. I have plenty of experience looking after pets, from big dogs that require multiple long walks or medication, to cats that love to chill out in front of the TV. I can provide a current police check as well as great references, and would love to chat with you if you have any questions.

  • VIC

CLEAN AND TRUSTWORTHY HOUSE/PET CARER
My name is Peta and I enjoy housesitting and looking after peoples pets while I save to buy a home of my own. I have many years of experience in house/pet minding as in the past I have filled this role in between stints overseas. I am kind, reliable and feel very strongly about caring for our environment. I keep healthy and fit and walk every morning. I work as a children's photographer and two days a week as a nanny for three hours. I mostly work on the computer at home, editing footage and updating my photo blog, except for the nanny work and a few 2hour photoshoots per week.

I am very competent and will be happy to take on any extra needs your property or pets may require. I will collect your mail and check on your neighbours!

I also do pet portraits.

Please feel welcome to send me a message or call me if you think I may be what you are looking for and we can arrange to meet. I am happy to travel to wherever is most convenient to you.

Morven


I live in Tasmania but travel frequently. My daughter lives in Elwood, Melbourne - one child and another of the way - and I am interested in housesits near her, also perhaps in other areas of Australia as I have a campervan and enjoy travelling and new experiences. I have a house in Tasmania which I seem to be constantly renovating. I have room for visitors so happy to host or do an exchange. I own one dog, but there are usually two around. A friend's dog comes to keep mine company each day. There are great walking tracks and a dog beach nearby. I am semi-retired but am dipping my toe back into the workforce at the moment; am also involved in some voluntary and lobbying work. While I have always had a dog in my life I am also happy to sit for other animals. I am pretty well house-trained and capable of doing odd jobs around the home - lots of years of experience!

Paul & Janet


  • Hunter Valley, North Coast

Hi, I'm Paul and I am now retired after finishing my career as a Town Planner working in Local Government. My wife (Janet) is currently working as a Teacher’s Aide. We own our home and have lived on the beautiful Sunshine Coast for 20 years after living in Melbourne, however we love to travel and experience new places! Our 3 children have grown up and have moved on to live in other parts of Australia.

We have had 2 dogs, a Cocker Spaniel (Bella) and an Australian Terrier (Ziggy). Bella lived to 13 years and Ziggy to 11 years. Ziggy only passed away in late 2018. We both shared the “doggy duties” of daily walking, feeding and medicating. We also had a cat (Maisie) who lived lived to the very old age of 21. We like to do house siting as it provides us the opportunity to care and have the company of animals and to help home owners have the peace of mind that their pets and home will be well cared for while they are away.

We have done many house sits in the past few years in different parts of Australia. We have looked after cats, dogs, chooks, birds and other fury animals. Part of the house sitting duties, of course, involves keeping the host's home and garden neat and tidy. We have used house sitters ourselves to look after our pets and home when we have taken a holiday in recent years.

We are house and garden proud and understand what is required to take care of your home and your pets.
We are both non-smokers. References are available on this site for you to read . A Police check and other references can be supplied upon request.

I will take really good care of your pets. I genuinely enjoy both cats and dogs. I Like taking dogs for walks and offering lots of affection. Same for cats too...except the walking.

Will also take good care of your property and leave it in an excellent condition.

I have excellent references. A police check. I don't smoke.
I am a friendly respectful guy who is very clean and tidy
Cheers, Patrick

Denise & John


  • NSW

We are a 62/65 year old non smoking married couple from Adelaide. My husband is a semi retired builder and we have over the past 5 years renovated our home in Seacliff including putting in a pool & raised veggie gardens (we are house & garden proud people). Our Son & family live in a very small row house in Surry Hills which my husband has renovated over the last couple of years to give them more space for their growing family. Our daughter lives in Canberra, we love to visit them both but do not want to intrude into their busy lives. House sitting is perfect, we love visiting different parts of the country especially when we can be near either our Son or Daughter.
I can assure you we will treat your house, garden or pet with great care & respect, as if they were our own. We have used Airbnb as travellers often both domestically & overseas and have excellent reviews and would be happy for you to access them should you consider us suitable.
Whilst renovating our sons house in Surry Hills we house sat in neutral bay and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
We will have plenty of free time to get to know your pet, walk, and look after your garden and keep your home clean, do any watering, maintain a pool if required and keep your home secure. We will mostly be at home during the day. I enjoy reading, knitting & quilting as well as gardening, walking & swimming.
Should you feel we can help each other please contact me at your earliest convenience so we can discuss.
NB. We thoroughly enjoyed our house sit in Neutral Bay in Dec/Jan and were very appreciative to be given the oppportunity.
Kind regards
Denise

Helen


  • NSW

31 years old: Experienced House/Pet sitter, Health Professional.

* What kind of person am I?.
I am a responsible, trustworthy, tidy and clean Australian born non-smoking woman and I love meeting new people. I am a young but mature Sydney city woman. I am an experienced house/pet sitter having house/pet sat for 25 houses in over 4 years full time. I am down to earth, reliable, practical, friendly and take great pride in providing a fantastic service. This means that you come home to a clean and tidy house and happy well looked after pets.

• What kind of service do I provide?

- I am 24/7 house sitter, so i provide excellent home security and often spend time at home.
- I am a 24/7 pet carer who loves animals just as much as you do and will go above and beyond to make sure that your pet is happy, healthy and not disrupted in their routine. I only take on 1 house sit at a time to provide a thorough service.
- I will take thoroughly good care of your pets and their needs as requested (meals, any medicine, brush them, give them any worming tablets, keep them company and spend time walking or playing with them).

- Any extra tasks feel free to ask me


* Why am I house/pet sitting?
I have been asked this question & it's a fair question! Well house sitting is allowing me to save money as i was a full time student so that I may buy my own home one day. I also love pets and I don't have my own (other than the family cat, dog and budgies :) ) so it is wonderful to be able to spend time with the beautiful pets that I mind. They provide such companionship. Also, I absolutely love the adventure and variety of living in new places around Sydney and meeting new people like you! Even though I intended to house/pet sit only whilst I studied, I continue house/pet sitting because I now LOVE the lifestyle, variety and adventure of it all.

* House/pet sitting experience
I have been pet/house sitting since April 2015. Also, I have lived out of home before & I have had many pets (cats, dogs, chickens, fish, birds, guinea pigs, rabbits, the odd insect.. ) my whole life so I understand the responsibilities of looking after a household and pets. I am happy to send you my references.

Here are some examples of my house sitting experience so far.
1. Frenchs Forest: 4 rescue cats, hermit crabs and a fighting fish.
2. Kirrawee: 2 rescue cats
3. Cammeray: House/pet sat a ragdoll cat and maintained the home for 3.5 months (May, June, July, August). This included mowing their lawns (The cat got in a fight so I immediately drove the cat to the vet in the night and he recovered well).
4. North Manly: Took care of a 14 year old dog, 21 year old cat, 2 fish ponds, a cockatoo and maintained and watered the tree dense garden regularly. Also feed the animals their daily medication at specific times.
5. Frenchs Forest: House sat for the same Frenchs Forest family again over Christmas and New Year’s Eve upon their request and they even paid for the service.
6. Belrose: House sat in Belrose in January 2016 and looked after their cat and dog. Walked their dog twice a day.
7. Cammeray: Returned to Cammeray a 2nd time for 3 weeks looking after their ragdoll cat and mowed their lawn
8. Maroubra: House/pet sat for 2 cats in March/April 2016
9. Cammeray: House/pet sat at Cammeray for a 3rd time and their ragdoll cat.
10. Cammeray: Through word of mouth, I house sat the next door neighbour's place from Aug-Oct 2016 to look after their house, garden and frog pond
11. North Manly: I looked after their pets and garden for a 2nd time in Nov 2016.
12. Mosman: Through word of mouth, I looked after a house and garden in Dec 2016 for 4 weeks
13. Charlestown Newcastle: I looked after a dog and the garden here in Dec/Jan 2017 including daily walks
14. North Turramurra: I looked after 2 dogs, a bearded dragon, garden and pool in Jan 2017. This included giving one medication twice daily and daily walks
15. Cammeray: I looked after another cat in January 2017.
16. Newcastle Medowie: I looked after a dog, chooks, garden and pool in Feb 2017
17. Cammeray: I returned for the 4th time to look after their in Feb 2017.
18. Neutral Bay: I looked after a large dog from in March/April 2017
19. Vaucluse: I looked after a large house with a cat, dog and fish in April 2017
20. West Pymble: I looked after a greyhound puppy in April/May 2017
21. Glebe: I looked after a cat in May 2017
22. Cammeray: I looked after a cat for the 5th time May-Aug 2017.
23. Dulwich Hill: I looked after a rabbit in Aug/Sept 2017
24. Glebe: I looked after a cat and dog in Oct 2017
25. Vaucluse: I returned to look after a dog, cat and fish tank in Dec/Jan 2018

Feel free to ask me if i am free for your house/pet sitting dates.

Many have asked me to come back at other times, however the timing has at times not worked out as I only commit myself to doing 1 in-depth house/pet sit at a time.

* A little more about my love for Animals.
At the moment I don't have any pets but I LOVE animals. Over the year I have saved, looked after and fostered out 23 stray kittens which I am very proud of. I really love it when people have rescue animals. Also, I have had pet sitting experience with dogs, kittens, cats, birds, fish, hermit crabs, frogs & experience with worming, kitty litters, baths, sick pets & some difficult pets. I understand that each pet has their own unique personality and requirements, in the same way people do.

Thus hopefully you will notice that I have a lot of house/pet sitting experience.

Notes: Also, I have a car so I would be able to take your pet to the vet quickly should there ever be an emergency.

* Do I sound like the kind of house/pet sitters you would like?
If so, then I hope to help to look after your home and pet. I would love to talk over the phone or meet you so we can get to know each other.
I also have a photo of myself so you can start to get to know me :)

P.S. The pictures are of some saved stray kittens I fostered and family pets.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind Regards
Helen

Aurora


  • Hunter Valley, North Coast, Southern Highlands, Rural/Regional NSW, Brisbane, South Eastern

Retired from working in aged-care, now embracing house sitting full time to travel and explore Australia. Have been house/pet sitting for a while now and enjoy the different environments, the many different pets and the people I meet..Have taken care of a variety of different animals from dogs (little Maltese to three large labradores) cats, birds, lizards,fish. I see this life style as an adventure, always interesting and exciting. I do enjoy exploring the area I stay in but prefer to spend my evenings in the home I am looking after.
I am an active, non-smoking, mature single female. I consider it a privilege to care for your pets, home and garden.
Have owned and loved cats, dogs (including two long haired Chihuahua which lived to the ripe old age of 18), fish, birds and even my daughter's mice.
I live a healthy life style, am reliable, honest, responsible, trustworthy and very tidy. I supply all my own consumables so that you are not inconvenienced.
I will enjoy looking after your pets and home while you are away and ensure that they will be taken care of as you would expect. With love and kindness. To be trusted with someones home and pets is a privilege.. I stick to the routine that the animals are used to and enjoy their company very much. If they are used to sleeping on their owner's bed they can do that with me too.
I am often invited back to house sit and have become friends with many of the people I meet. (and the pets) Also have taken care of Airbnb while owners were away.
I would love to hear from you if I can be of service.

About Me
Thank you for reading my profile. I am a 31 year old female who is easy going and works in marketing, I love pet & house sitting and the opportunity is has bought me.

I have a very recent working with children check that was completed in March this year, a recent Police Check, as well as 5 star references from my main sitter site (which I will share upon application) as well as reference from my previous landlord.

I love the arts, travel, hanging out with my family & friends and going to the movies. I have grown up with cats and dogs all my life and I own a very cute (albeit also very bossy) little pug that lives with my parents. I am also experienced with pets that have more timid personalities, and understand the soft and tentative approach required to ensure they feel comfortable.

I am respectful, very tidy and enjoy my own downtime. I generally like to come home after work and cook for myself and read/watch ted talks/research or do 'life admin'. I am a non smoker and my idea of a perfect night out is going to dinner with my girlfriends and ordering red velvet cake! I am keen to continue my own 'me time' and be productive for myself.

Why I want to house sit
I fell into both pet & house sitting after having recently packed up my life, only to have my travel plans change. Since then, I have been house sitting in long term stays or residing at my parents in Ringwood in between sits. I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My reasoning for wanting to continue is to enjoy the downtime it brings to be able to live alone, to be close to work (in the CBD), to save my pennies for my own home one day, whilst being able to enjoy the company that furry friends bring if I am looking after a home that comes with them!

My Experience
I have been house and pet sitting since the beginning of the year. I have looked after cats and dogs, as well as homes that with no pets but have beautiful plants. If you have pets, I know what it is like to be away from fur children. I like to send pictures to update to those who I am sitting for (if you would like them!).

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Graham


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, VIC

Hi there, I'm a semi retired 50 something male (non smoker) who looks after people's pets and homes. I have had many happy clients, including lots of dogs and cats and horses and cows (see pics); I'm sure their owners are happy too.

I have many references from pet owners who you can speak to; including police personnel, doctors and business owners, so you can check my bona fides.

I have much rural experience and I'm rather handy with tractors, diggers, ride on lawn mowers, chainsaws and the like. Homes in my care have varied from farms to cute cottages to executive palaces and high security homes.

My preferences are northern rivers of NSW / sthn Queensland and the greater Sydney area, and now, Melbourne. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks :)

Available Victoria. 17-30 Nov 2019. 10-20 Dec 2019. 11 Jan- 28 Feb 2019.

Robert & Martina


  • Perth

Hi there :)

These are Robert and Martina, a young couple who moved from Italy to Australia a few years ago and who has now been settled in the lovely Perth for 3 years after living, working and studying in Melbourne for 6 years. Robert is full-time Mechanical Engineer who loves sports, movies and food. Martina is a Primary School Teacher who has been working as a Barista for the last few years. She is into music, sports and outdoors.

We have both had lots of different pets through the years both in Italy and in Australia and we can assure you we will love them as our own, so you don't have to worry while you are away.

We also own ourselves a property here in Perth, which we have given out for rent a few months ago, so we know how hard it can be to leave your home sweet home in someone else's hands. Being born and raised in Italy means that we have and keep high standards for personal cleaning and house duties and we can assure you that we will take care of your house as if it was our own and you will find it in an amazing condition upon your return.

We are both almost 30 years old so we are well past the age and time of partying, but we rather enjoy a romantic dinner at home and long walks along the coast or in different parks around Perth.

We have two cars and everything else that we may need so we are ready to go.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask and we will happily answer all of them :)

Talk soon,
Robert and Martina

EXP WOMAN PET/HOUSESITTING CONTINUALLY SINCE 2010 INTERNATIONALLY & AUSTRALIA..

I'm a competent, mature woman with the enthusiasm of youth & the experience that comes with age.
Originally from Melbourne, although I lived in Perth for many years where I owned a house with garden/pool & raised a family.
The past few years I pet/ housesit in Europe mid year, & Australia/Asia in the summer.
I constantly share my life with animals including rescue creatures, so I've a relaxed easy rapport with them.
,
I'm very experienced with dogs & cats enjoying the company of both.
I've also cared for birds, fish, guinea pigs, rabbits, ducks, hedgehogs, turtles & tortoises.


As I haven't been able to eradicate the habit of caring for things....be it animals, people or houses, house/petsitting provides the perfect solution.
My previous house in Perth had a pool & reticulated garden including vegetable, so I'm adept at maintaining those.
Always care for properties & pets, as if my own and return them in the condition left to me, if not better.

Police clearance & recent contactable references, on request..........although my best ones are from the animals who are pleased to have me return to care for them.

I'd greatly appreciate replies to applications, whether positive or negative. Thanks.

Hi there!
We’re a couple in our 60s from the UK. We have 2 grown up daughters who both live in Sydney so we visit regularly and call the city our second home.....we’ve submitted our visa to eventually move over here permanently.
We’re long time animal lovers who have owned many pets over the years, cats, horses etc. We love looking after our daughter’s dog, Buddy a staffy x lab.....their fur baby and our first ‘grandchild’! ;) We also regularly dog sit for friends in the UK. Tara the elderly black lab is one of our favourites.
We’re both semi-retired so enjoy a relaxed lifestyle. We’re both very clean and tidy, and are non-smokers.
We can supply references on request, from people we’ve previously pet-sit for.
Look forward to hearing from you!
Liz and Nick Kyberd

I am a mature, responsible and highly conscientious 55 year old lady who is currently on her twelfth successful house sit. I’m a well-travelled and highly respectful person that adores animals and find I easily establish rapport with them. I often become the ‘aunty’ to our new fur friends on our house sits. I will treat your home and fur babies with lots of care, love and attention. You can be assured you can holiday with no worries at all about your home and your pets. I lead a healthy lifestyle and I’m clean living and non smoking. I only work online , so can give your fur babies lots of love and attention. I am a friendly, healthy, happy person that is easy to get along with. I do have a unique gift with animals, they almost always like me on first sight, which says a lot about a person. I’m currently house sitting as I love the freedom and lifestyle it gives me ( I have a base in Redcliffe, a small cottage) and as I no longer have dogs or cats of my own, just love looking after other peoples. .
Im more then happy to supply references if you require them, both from house sitting, work, and personal.
I really hope you consider me as i believe you’ll be very happy with my level of care.

Trust your pets to a very intuitive, animal loving pet sitter, and your home to a caring, tidy house sitter.

I’m a 41 yo single female experienced housesitter, who loves the domestic life of home, pets and garden. A true homebody and animal lover, I will spend most nights reading and curled up on the couch with furry friends.

Why choose me to look after your home?

* Your house and your pets are among the most precious things in life, so you need to know you’re entrusting them to someone who cares as much as you do.

* I’m a single, quiet homebody. No entertaining. No parties. No coming and going at all hours.

* Non-smoker. Non-drinker (social only).

* Heaps of experience. I have plenty of homeowners who came home to immaculate homes and happy pets, who can provide references.

* I love everything domestic. I enjoy being clean and tidy and will treat your home with the same care and respect that I do my own.

* Huge animal lover! Because I’m unable to have my own pets, I usually end up best buds with the pets I care for and shower with attention (or not, if they prefer!). I have a natural intuitive connection with animals and know that some pets need time to adapt to a stranger in their safe space. So I'm conscious of introducing myself, earning their trust and befriending them at their own pace. I have the kind of calm energy that makes the housesit as stress free as possible for your pets.

* Garden lover. I spend every moment I can outside enjoying nature and greenery, and love the relaxation of tending gardens.

* I work for myself, so I’m home most of the time to provide lots of companionship for pets used to company, and security for your home.

I house sit as I'm a huge animal lover and can't have pets of my own and I really miss the company of furry friends in my life. I also enjoy periodically having space away from other people in my home. I look forward to talking to you about your housesitting and pet care needs.

My main philosophy to pet sitting ~ “I like to keep your pets’ day to day routine as much as possible while you’re away”.

I am a single 40 year old full time professional working in the cbd for dhhs.I am a senior Service Planner. I do some of the planning that builds, expands and refurbishes public hospitals across metro and rural melb. I typically work Monday to Friday with 1 day off site (working from home). I have fairly flexible working arrangements!

About me!? I am fairly introverted and prefer to be a home body. I have 2 dogs of my own but they live with my parents atm. I love Netflix, movies, going to dinners/brunches, gym, catching up with friends and family.

I love all animals too - I am a genuine animal lover and experienced pet sitter. I have looked after a number of rescue dogs in addition to my own over the years- I was a committed foster carer. All of my dogs found homes quite quickly after some TLC, food, care and behavioural training! One of the best experiences ive had. I also sponsor rescue dogs in Bali and provide funding support to both cats and dogs that need help (vet care, rehabbing/rehoming etc).

Why am I doing this?
1. A friend of mine house sat on happy house sitters for a number of years and said it was a great and fun experience.
2. I’m trying to save a deposit for a house all on my own!
3. as you can probably tell, I’m mad about animals.

I Can supply references upon request (family friends work colleagues etc). If you need me to undertake a police check I can do that too!

Look forward to hearing from you

  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

We are a mature married couple currently house/pet sitting around Melbourne and have family living in Richmond. We have been house/pet sitting for over a year now with good reviews and many repeat requests.

To date we haven't let anyone down and everyone likes our reliability. They are also thrilled with our pet care and the attention that their pets get whilst they are away. We always try very hard to follow usual routines and owners instructions for their fur and feathered family members.

We both do some part time work in Melbourne CBD but have arranged to work different days and hours with the exception of some overlap on a Wednesday. Jean can always be quite flexible with her hours. This means that there is always one of us around to keep pets company and attend to their needs as well as to keep your home secure.

We are also happy to water plants/garden and Andre is able to mow lawns where needed and enjoys walking the dogs so they usually get more exercise than requested unless there is an instruction not to walk them more. (Jean is a renowned 'cat lady')

Before we leave, we complete a clean through of the house ( except any private/personal areas) and are happy to shop for fresh milk, etc for your return. We also launder our bed sheets, pillow cases etc and return them to the bed ( dependent on your return time). Our aim is to make your return home as 'work free' as possible.

Neither of us smoke.

Written references ( some on this site) and police checks can be provided at your request.

We very much look forward to caring for your home and pets so you can enjoy a stress free holiday or time away..
