Paul and Robyn


  • Melbourne

Hi just updating details. We are coming to Melbourne and are available 20 - 28th July 2017. Ideally like to be in inner city Melbourne or close to tram/train/bus stops. We are recently retired school teachers and would like to become house sitters. Our daughter and hubby live in Melbourne and are expecting their first child in November 2015. We would like to be in and around Melbourne to help out during the next 12 months. Initially we would like to be house sitting in an area no greater than 40 mins from Richmond. We are new to house sitting but keen to give it a go (and be the doting grandparents of course!). We both like animals and miss our recently departed Labradors. Currently, we have a cat and 3 chickens which will be looked after in our absence. We enjoy many things - gardening, cooking, movies, live shows, reading, sewing,
volunteering (Ronald McDonalds), woodwork, photography, pets and home improvements. Non smokers. We take pride in our home and garden and would love the opportunity to look after yours. References and police checks available.

  • VIC

Looking for a home away from home. I’m a friendly and respectful working professional at private hospital within the South-East area of Melbourne. I am a non-smoker who lives an active lifestyle and has an unlimited amount of love for animals. I have grown up with pets my whole life and therefore am able to look after yours if need be. Over the years I had rented, lived on my own and also have had experience in maintaining family/friend’s homes whilst away for a 3 month period. I am able to send over written references and also hold both a Police Clearance & Children’s Check as I work in the medical field. Please feel free to contact me.

Andrew & Robyn


NB: I work from home so am Chief Carer of Pets & House. Genuine animal lovers, your pets get plenty of Dedicated Care Time under our watch :)

This Aussie couple can be relied on to care for pets (dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, guinea pigs), maintain pools (solar, chlorine, salt), manicured lawns, rambling yards, hedges, edges & potted plants. Seasoned sitters, we have references from all homeowners for whom we have provided house & pet sitting services since commencing house sitting in March 2011. We've returned to past home owners (and pets we have grown to love) time and again - some references are attached but many of our home owners prefer to give a verbal reference.

We have cared for dogs & cats both young & old, healthy & infirm, affectionate & stand-offish. We have no children and enjoy lavishing attention on your fur family. So that you have your finger on the pulse of things at home we maintain regular contact by email or text, whichever you prefer. We are happy to monitor your mail and/or forward and/or scan documents to you while away. Conscious of the cost of utilities, we restrict use of electricity (washing machine, dishwasher) to Off Peak. Andrew and I both have a car and laptop with wireless connection and live an active life and enjoy taking your dog for long walks. Non smoking, security conscious, respectful, affable, responsible; we will not disappoint!

David & Lesley


  • Melbourne

We are a retired couple (non-smokers) looking for a longer term house sits in Melbourne in 2017 before selling house in Perth. We will look after your home and garden as we would our own. Prepared to care for up to three pets (cat and/or dog and/or fish).

We have been home owners for 30 years and keen gardeners. 12 years of looking after 2 labradors; 15 years caring for cats and 10 years for fish in an indoor tank.

We have secured six house-sits: a 5 year old tolling retriever for 6 weeks, 3 weeks with a 3 year old labrador, 4 weeks with a 15 year old cat (all now completed); 4 weeks with a very old mini schnauzer (current); and still to come: 4 months with 2 cats (one young & one old), and 3 weeks with a 5 year old greyhound.

Paul & Alexander


  • Brisbane

**Actively seeking sits in / around BRISBANE commencing start Oct. 2017.**

We are Paul and Alexander - a young (30+) couple who have recently relocated from Norway to Australia.

Paul is Australian, and grew up on the open plains of the Monaro in New South Wales. Alexander is Swedish (also a permanent resident of Australia) and grew up on a small hobby farm surrounded by dense forest in Värmland.

Until recently, we were happily living and working in Oslo, Norway - not too far from Alex's family in Sweden. We decided to leave Scandinavia in order to be closer to Paul's family and friends and to travel around Australia. In July of 2016 we embarked on a camping trip, starting in Darwin and taking us through the Red Centre and all the way down to Hobart, via South Australia and Victoria. We have seen some amazing places and our trip and look forward to seeing more of Australia in the coming year. We have our own transport.

Paul practised as a Landscape Architect for 3 years in Sydney before moving to Oslo 6 years ago. Paul has a Bachelor degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of New South Wales in Sydney and a Masters' degree in Landscape Architecture from the Oslo School of Architecture and Design. Prior to commencing his full-time professional career, Paul was employed as a Horticultural Labourer at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney and at The Mosman Gardener (a nursery on Sydney's lower north shore). These positions involved regular maintenance and one-off improvement works at properties in suburbs such as Kirribilli, Kurraba Point, Cremorne, Mosman, Clifton Gardens, Seaforth and Balgowlah Heights, in addition to the Lower Garden and Government House at the Royal Botanic Gardens. Paul has, therefore, extensive practical experience maintaining and improving manicured gardens and large publicly accessible grounds. This underpins his 10 years of professional design experience dealing with public and private clients and various stakeholders. Your garden will be in good hands!

Alexander is GREAT with dogs, having grown up with several show dogs trained by his mother on their property in Sweden. He is quick to establish rapport and assert authority as appropriate. And, both of us have grown up with cats, so we know they can be both kind and cunning.

We are also able to perform extra duties & labour for those small home improvement projects that you’ve been wanting to get done for years, such installing shelving, re-painting the hall, cleaning and oiling of timber decks, intensive weeding, planting a new garden bed, composting, demolition of light structures (a chook shed, for example) and garden beds, light tree pruning, garden edging and much more. Talk to us if you have a project around the house that you’d like done while you are away!

We are avid users of AirBnB and have enjoyed staying in private dwellings across Europe, Iceland, North America and Australia. There are 19 reviews of our stays available on Paul's AirBnB profile. These can be collated and made available upon request.

A copy of our most recent tenant's reference can also be made available upon request.

Non-smokers.

  • Brisbane

I am an animal lover and qualified Veterinary Nurse. (no longer working as a nurse though). I am honest, reliable and very respectful of people and their belongings. I enjoy gardening and walking. I am a non smoker.

I have a reference from Yasuko whom I house/pet/garden sat for a month for last year and one from Fiona. Unfortunately Fiona's wont save properly but if you are interested I can easily email it to you. I can also obtain work references etc for you.

Michele & John


  • Central Coast, North Coast, South Coast, Alice Springs, Darwin, QLD

Happily married, and still in love after many years of working together 24/7, we decided to retire early and take the time and opportunity to explore this great Southern land. With our four-legged child, a 6 year old Poodle/Maltese X, we like to spend periods of time in places that please us. We've met fabulous folk and seen wonderful sights on our journey. Now we'd love to learn more about the area in which you live!

In our former life we were kitchenware wholesalers and retailers, with a cooking school - where John taught many culinary classes. He is passionate about real food and good nutrition, and continues to cook up a storm on the road!

Michele is a qualified dog trainer. A Certified Training Partner of the, internationally recognised, Karen Pryor Academy she works with private clients and also volunteers at RSPCA centres. Caring for your pets is an absolutely joy for her - and she'll happily train any problem behaviours you may be experiencing ... or just teach your fur baby a few neat tricks in your absence! All just part and parcel of the house sitting service! With Michele in residence, your pets will enjoy the time out and holiday just as much as you will!

We also have experience with a variety of farm animals, and can administer needles and medications as required. We enjoy the outdoor life enormously!

We're mature - AND we still know how to have fun! We're energetic, active and interested in everything. Walking every day is important to us, and keeps us all fit. Other than that, we're quite content to stay @ home and enjoy the ambience. Pottering in the garden is always a pleasure - never a chore. We have a travelling, potted herb garden ... essential for the chef! Actually, we're healthier and happier now than ever before.

We're non-smokers and we need a smoke-free environment. We keep a clean and tidy caravan, and will treat your house with due care and respect. We're responsible, reliable and trustworthy.

As former home owners, we understand that you want the peace of mind that comes with the right people caring for your critter-kids and castle. We are those people, and would love hear from you.

Links to Michele's professional training qualifications, and other relevant information is available on request. This site will not permit us to include them in our profile.

Character references also available on request.

Kirsty & Jonny


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

We are very pet friendly, clean and tidy professionals looking to stay in new places and save some money. We both grew up with cats and dogs and one of us was on a dairy farm for 13 years, so we have plenty of experience taking care of animals! Homeowners can expect their property to be well maintained, clean, neat and tidy. We both have experience housesitting both cats and dogs, in houses and apartments. We are pretty low key and enjoy nights in, cooking and relaxing with a movie.

We have also house sat in NZ and below is the link to our NZ profile page, with an endorsement from a recent house sit:

  • Adelaide, Mid North, South, Spencer Gulf, West Coast
  • Reduced Contact

Hello :)

My story:
I grew up in country SA in a large family and as the oldest of 6 children had a lot of responsibility including babysitting, cooking, cleaning and grocery shopping. In my early 20's I house sat with Aussie House Sitters in SA as a bridge between moving out of home and trialing city life. I have tried a couple of career paths and in my late 20's my passion for food and nutrition lead to a big but exciting change as I went back to study a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics and over the past two years have lived and worked as a Dietitian in regional SA and VIC. I have recently moved to Melbourne and plan to crack the Dietetic market here. I have packed away the bulk of my belongings and am house sitting my way through this new adventure! My life passions including helping others to lead a healthy lifestyle whilst doing so myself, pilates and continuing to meet and surround myself with people who will enrich my life whilst I myself continue through my exciting journey!

Why I would make a great housesitter:
Your home will be cared for and kept in the same condition as it was found.
I will show attention to detail with cleaning (have also had experience in residential and commercial cleaning).
I will show love and care for your pets as if they were my own.
I am mature and responsible and will not use your home for my social gatherings.

If you have any further questions about me please do not hesitate to ask!

Warm regards,

Angela

  • Central Tablelands, Central West Slopes, Far West, Murray & Riverina, Snowy MTS, Eyre Peninsula, VIC, S.E & Central, S. Western

Graeme & I are a retired couple, continuing our Australia wide travels and are now heading towards South Australia. We recently house sat at a place called
"WALLAN", VICTORIA. Before that at:- "LOCHINVAR", near Maitland/Hunter Valley/Newcastle and at:-Beechwood, nr. Wauchope/Port MacQuare. We do have reference etc., if required.

We have our own 30ft Fifth Wheeler, so are quite self-contained. Just require power and water. We have done house sitting in the past and also caretaking positions. One was in Tasmania, some years ago, for 12 mths. We were caretakers, for the South United Football Club, at Runcorn, Qld, for eighteen months and lived on site. We also, have recently been caretakers, for a property at Cleveland, Qld, before we left, to head off. If you wish further information, in regards, to the above, please do not hesitate, to let me know.

My husband was a self-employed carpenter, for many years, but recently was a truck driver/delivery man. I have been a Property Manager and then a Senior Property Manager, for many years and most recently, for nearly 12 years, for a Company, in Sunnybank Hills, Qld, so I know all about looking after properties, like they were your own. We did have a 10 acre property, as Jimboomba, which we have sold.

We do have one, wells supervised dog, called Sally. We also have a mature, female cockatiel and we love bird watching and nature, in general.

Kind regards, Louise and Graeme Cox.

We have previously house sat and have engaged house sitters. See references.

Mon


  • Brisbane

I'm a Nutritionist & Lifestyle Consultant returning to Australia after living overseas for 15 years, and as I don’t intend to reside in Australia permanently, house sitting seems to be a great option; it will fulfill my accommodation needs, and if pets are a part of the home, it will fulfill my love for being with and caring for animals.

I'm a very healthy, clean & quiet living (non-smoking), professional, responsible, respectful, tidy and organized person who loves animals. I've maintained my own homes and also cared for various animals over the last 20 years, having had a dog for 14 yrs, cat for 6 yrs, cold water and tropical fish for 4 yrs, birds for a few years, and fostered dogs over the last 15 years. I understand the responsibility, time and energy required to maintain their health and happiness, and to connect with them so they feel cared for.

I greatly respect other people’s belongings and space, and believe that you do for others and you would like done for yourself. I'm very flexible to suit the needs of the homeowner and/or pet, and focus on maintaining harmony and balance in their sanctuary, so there is peace of mind while the owner is away.

I would be more than happy to face time and/or Skype with the home owner while away and also send regular email updates with photos. Character references are available upon request. I look forward to hearing from you!

Merry


Single, non-smoking, quiet, animal loving house-sitter available...everyone catered for - from goldfish to great danes!
From a country background, I was brought up with all sorts of animals and am a certifed equine and canine sport masseuse.

My first house-sit was supposed to be for one weekend and ended up being a four year stint:))

Currently I work part time in the city about 5 hours in the evening.
Obviously this would not suit a housesit where you require your sitter to be at home 24/7.

Refs, police checks etc available upon request.

Preferred Locations: Sydney - CBD, North Shore, Eastern Suburbs or anywhere further out so long as I am handy to transport connections.

Ann


  • ACT

I have moved back to Canberra after 15 years in Geraldton, Western Australia. I may only be here for a year so I have left my husband, recently renovated house and, most importantly, Salsa, my border collie cross, back there. House sitting allows me to get to know different parts of Canberra. I have a car but enjoy taking the bus to work in Civic. An extra bonus is looking after pets, particularly dogs that like to take me on walks. My own dog does agility and my husband and I are active in the local club so I am used to dogs of all types and personalities. I'm responsible, friendly and rarely go out in the evenings or weekends.

John & Wendy


  • Bris. Northern suburbs

We are Wendy and John, a retired couple from Balwyn in Melbourne who visit the Redcliffe Peninsula in Brisbane several times a year to stay with our son and his family.

But now our granddaughter is getting older we would like to go more often and stay a little longer, so we're looking for house sits anywhere within half an hour's drive of Redcliffe.

We are non-smokers and we have done about 15 home exchanges around the world and would be exemplary house sitters. We always treat homes as if they were our own and Wendy is a real softie who would spoil any pets we had to care for.

Wendy is also a talented and keen gardener. Her assistant, John, is less talented but can follow instructions and mows a mean lawn, so there would no problems there either.

We hope to hear from you.

Arlene & Ross


  • Tweed Coast, Bris. Southern suburbs, Gold Coast & Hinterland

Hi Homeowners & animal lovers
We would love to care for your most prized possessions while you take a break. You can be confident that your animals would be loved, cared for & given heaps of attention as Ross is retired, so would be around the house most of the time. We have recently relocated back to the Gold Coast for Arlene's work & are available for housesitting while we get re-established. We both love animals & as home & ex-plant nursery owners, would care for your house & garden as if it were our own. We are both non-smokers, fit & healthy, have a positive, youthful outlook & regularly mistaken for being at least 10yrs younger than we are. Excellent housesitting references can be provided on request & we have current police checks.

Lynn & Ron


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

Hi all House owners,

We are an active couple venturing into retirement and see this as a great opportunity to experience more of this beautiful country.

Our plan is to leave South Australia in June and head all the way up to the vicinity of Rockhampton. From there we will head back down the coast to Wollongong for Christmas (we have family there). After Christmas we will continue our travels down the coast through Victoria and hopefully Tasmania before heading back to Adelaide later in 2018.

We have both had pets and would be very confident in managing any of your pets as required. We are non smokers and are also very House proud so you can be assured your property would be looked after as if our own

We currently have secured house sits in Kurrajong NSW from 30th June to 28th July, Beachmere QLD from 6th August to the 19th August and Birkdale Qld up to Sept 12th. We would be more than happy to discuss any sitting requirements you may have that roughly fall into our travel plans after those dates.

We look forward to hearing from you

Regards
Lynn and Ron

Andrew & rena


  • Central Coast, North Coast, Brisbane, South Eastern

Andrew and Rena have been living in Brisbane since 2001. Rena has been an academic advisor at Queensland University of Technology for over 14 years and is looking to do an online Masters degree. Andrew worked as a primary school teacher up until 2015. We have a 22YO son who is doing his PhD in psychology at UQ. This year we returned from a 12 month volunteer experience in Myanmar with Australian Volunteers International. Rena worked at a university developing language and teaching competencies. Andrew cooked, cleaned, shopped, did some volunteer teaching at an orphanage and tried to learn the language.
We are nearing the end of a 3.5 month house-sitting arrangement in Pinjarra Hills. This will end in mid September 2017 and we are interested in another medium to long term arrangement. Rena and I are at a great point in our lives where we have the freedom and flexibility to consider new employment, study and travel opportunities. We are exploring alternative ways to live simply and learn from new experiences. If we find we really enjoy the lifestyle then we might look at the possibility of housesitting in other countries. Living in different communities, perhaps working, a little travel - all has appeal.
We live a pretty quiet lifestyle. We have been together for nearly 30 years and lived in many different countries. We have never owned a house but we have treated each house in which we have lived as our home. We are pet lovers, particularly dogs. We enjoy being outdoors -walking, swimming and the occasional game of tennis. We both do yoga and Andrew has a strong interest in meditation. We both enjoy music and reading and have a intense but friendly rivalry in scrabble. Andrew is learning the ukulele and Rena is keen to advance her knitting skills. We do not smoke. References are available upon request.

Susan & David


  • ACT, NSW, South Eastern, TAS

David and I have been house sitting for over 3 years now and truly love this lifestyle. We have been fortunate enough to be continually on the move over this time and have returned to our first house sit a second time. David and I were original Sydney dwellers for 30 odd years and have always owned our own homes up until 2000. We had a hobby farm in Tasmania for 15 years, with farm animals including sheep, goats, chickens a horse, dogs and cats etc. We are familiar with living with tank water/ water pumps,wood heaters, septic systems and basic requirements for rural living. Leaving Tasmania in 2000 we rented in Sydney for a couple of years then moved to the Central Tablelands, NSW for 11 years where we rented a cabin on a 90 acre goat farm. During that time I did volunteer work on a regular basis for 8 years which involved 6 month periods away from home at a time staying with different families every week, so I am very accustomed to living in other peoples' homes. David worked as a full time carpenter in the local area accompanying me regularly on various trips. After leaving the central tablelands we both volunteered on a 7 acre retreat centre in Victoria for 7 months maintaining the property and looking after 3 acres of garden. We then moved back to NSW to try our hands at house sitting. I have a background in admin/bookkeeping and David is a carpenter. We are responsible and mature adults and have experienced many different lifestyles including living in Asia and Tibet. We enjoy the experience of new lifestyles and locations and feel that house sitting would be a great opportunity for us to do what we love and benefit the home owner as well.

Ideally we would like long term sits of 3-6 months preferably NSW but South East Queensland, ACT and Tasmania would also be happily considered.

Our interests include travelling, walking/hiking and water sports. We are both fit and healthy, don't drink or smoke and enjoy the outdoors. We feel that we are able to fit into a city or rural environment as we have lived in both and would certainly care for your home, garden and pets as if our own.

At present we are enjoying our 17th house sit in India. We have been here for 4 months and will return next month after completing a 5 month house and dog sit.

So far we have cared for 20 dogs, 9 horses, 5 cats, 22 sheep, 15 cows, numerous chooks, tropical fish and 1 bird.

We are more than happy to discuss any house sitting jobs, answer questions, provide references, police checks, photos etc and anything else you would like so as to feel comfortable and secure with the house sitter you have chosen.
With kind regards
Susan and David Kirkwood

Review by:
Referee: Teresa MacDonald (Yarra Glen), 6/5/2017
Corline and Anneline were kind enough to look after my two cats and my house for 5 weeks. The cats were lovingly cared for and the house was beautifully clean and tidy upon my return. I would heartily recommend them to anyone requiring pet sitters.

Review by Rebecca:(Vermont) January 2016
Anneline and Corline looked after our cat whilst we were away for 6 weeks over the school Christmas holidays. They arrived on Christmas day and waved us off on our trip whilst preparing their own
Christmas lunch. We received updates and photos of our cat regularly and she was looked after very well. The house was clean and tidy when we arrived home late in the evening which was a wonderful surprise!. I would have them back again in the future and would highly recommend both to look after your pets and home.
Skills: Pets well cared for, Followed instructions, Home neat and clean, Maintained garden, Punctual, Resourceful

Review by Andrea - Woori Yallock, VIC, Australia 19 April 2016
Anneline house sat for our 3 dogs for 4 weeks. The dogs settled in with Anneline with no problems and were more upset when she left than when we left. No doubt she spoiled them rotten and looked after them very well. The house was very tidy on our returns and even fresh milk and juice was in the fridge!
Anneline is a very caring and honest person and we would have her back anytime.
Best sitter you can hope for.

• Beatrice Lucas (Gruyere) June 2016 – September 2016.
Anneline and Corline are a true find and the best possible house-sitters. It was very re-assuring to know that our Horses and Alpacas were in the most caring hands. They are totally reliable, easy to get on with, friendly, honest and practical. We would have them back anytime.

• Jane Douglas (Croydon) May 2015
Anneline and Corline looked after my 6 cats and 6 chickens for 2 months whilst I was on holiday in Europe. She was great and I got photos of the animals and updates of how it was all going several times a week. Anneline did a wonderful job and the house was so clean and tidy. I have been very happy with her work and would love to have her back again in the future.

• Sue Houghton (Mitcham) April 2015
Corline house/dog sat for me twice in quick succession during Easter and after Easter. She was very reliable, responsible and my Chaka was extremely well looked after, as was my home. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a genuine caring house sitter.

• Nancy Latham (Tasmania) December 2014
I cannot recommend my new friends highly enough. It truly is a pity from my perspective that they don’t live locally (Penquin, Tasmania) to be able to house sit for me all the time. I highly recommend them to anyone wishing the best care for their fur babies and truly believe they were the best house sitters I could ever wish for.

Anneline & Corline house sat for me last year, looking after our horses, dogs and other animals. The animals took to them easily and were comfortable in their care.
I have known Anneline for some time now and have always found her to be honest and trustworthy.
Corline is exceptional at home care/housekeeping.

Hello!

I've just relocated to Australia after many years living in the UK. It's great to be back, and whilst I find my feet again I'm looking for some house sits. I'm open to any length of stay. I'm currently on my second house sit since returning - both involving kitty companions - and enjoying the experiences.

I'm a mature, clean and reliable non-smoker, good with animals, neighbours, watering green things and general house upkeep. Your home will be looked after as if it were my own. I work in classical music production (for the last 15 years I was working for the BBC) so I tend to prefer peace and quiet - there won't be any parties thrown in your absence! I've also done home helping in the past for a district nursing service.

I was police checked for my job last year in the UK (a full working with children check, rather than just the basic one) and can supply a copy of this - I would be more than willing to undergo an Australian one too. I can also supply references.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch - I'd really love to hear from you!

Best wishes

Adele

Myself and my two adult daughters Katie and Rebekah, would love to look after your home or home and animals. We are very clean and respectful people with a love for all animals and dogs. We would love to house sit your home so we can get away for a break more often and to look after animals is a bonus too.
As I am a school bus driver we would be available to house sit your home anytime during the school holidays. My daughters Katie is studying primary school teaching and school holidays are good for her too. The other daughter Rebekah works assisting my husband (who is her father) in his landscaping, lawn-mowing business so if your home requires any garden maintenance we are well equipped to do so.
We are all non-smokers who love a clean and tidy house and would ensure your house and property is treated as our own.
I can supply references if requested.

Kind regards Henriette

I'd love to House Sit to help people in looking after their pets in their familiar environment whilst saving for my first home.
I am 43, single, a non-partying type, don't smoke, a Full time student at Swinburne University, an online student as well and i'm also a freelance sound/post production engineer.
I am a good, kind, responsible person and very respectful of other people's property and their pets of course. I will treat them as though they were my own.
I have experience in house sitting and hope to help others. I have looked after both domestic (dogs and cats) and farm animals (horses and chickens) before.
I have references and a police check attached to my profile.
I would love to meet you and introduce myself, to give you a chance at getting to know me better as a house sitter and overall as a person, to help you decide for yourself of my suitability. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this. Look forward to meeting you!

Hi!

Our names are Steve and Danielle and we are a young, professional couple who are currently saving for our first home. Steve owns his own business in Website Design and Danielle is a Primary School Teacher.

We have been house sitting consistently for over a year now and as a result of this, our enthusiasm for house sitting has grown so much stronger! We have completed long and short term house sits, with up to 3 animals and are comfortable with all animals and always ensure we treat them as if they were our own.

We are very friendly, tidy, organised, resourceful, motivated, tolerant and are both non-smoker or drinkers who loves walking dogs, stroking cats and talking with birds. We have house sat for a range of animals including dogs, cats, lizards, birds, fish and poultry.

We are both quite house proud and like to keep our space tidy and clean (We are that couple who apologises for the mess even when others think it's more than tidy enough!), and take extra care when it comes to shared spaces and other people's possessions. We also don't mind helping others out at all and have been known to do the dishes for them while their back was turned... Rest assured that you will return to a tidy home!

Danielle also has a very high demand, one eyed pug who lives at her parents house so we are both very aware and confident when dealing with animals who have health issues. (The pug does not need to travel with us). Her sister is also a vet nurse at SASH and so am used to a range of health issues.

Furthermore, being a teacher and working for myself, we do not work long 12 hour days and so are able to be home to look after your pets.

We both have our own cars, as well as having references and police checks available.

House sitting offers us the opportunity to save for our first home, whilst getting to experience heaps of amazing animals in lovely places. We think it is a great way to find out what living in an unfamiliar area is like, while having the calm and comfort of a home and the chance to smother pets with love and care (if that is something they appreciate, of course). We regularly contact house owners so they can be assured that their house is in the best care possible.

Thank you for reading through our profile and we hope to hear from you!

My husband and I are retired and matured aged and experienced in caring for all animals from goldfish to guinea pigs, cats to 60 kg dogs to goats, sheep and horses.
We have attained skills based on the Parelli Natural Horsemanship principals. We follow the pet owners instructions to the letter.

We can offer references both from happy home owners and a character reference for a highly reputable organisation. . There is a recent reference attached to this site but not everyone can open it so I am happy to send it to you via email. We do not have Police checks as such but my husband has a "working with children" clearance which went through the same process. .

We have over the years cared for some very upmarket homes on Sydney's Northern Beaches and harbourside suburbs. We understand the need to care for expensive items in the home.
We have our own lovely home in Tea Gardens at Port Stephens. We are very houseproud and keep it spotless. We therefore seek similar quality homes to ours.
Whilst we love animals we do not allow them to sleep on our bed or in our room.

This Christmas we are looking to sit somewhere in the Gladesville/Hunters Hill and riverside areas . Alternatively Sydney's Northern Beaches up as far as Avalon

We have children and grandchildren in Sydney as well as an elderly mother in law at Camden so we need to be able to visit them during our time there.

We will not be back available to house sit anywhere other than Sydney for the rest of 2017 We probably need to spend the 24, & 25th December with our elderly mother and then can proceed on to a house sitting assignment. However this is negotiable.

Throughout the year we are keen to find short sits of weekends or up to 4 days out in the Camden. Macarthur area due to our mother in laws location. Semi rural is nice such as the areas around Camden Picton, The Oaks etc.

Please call if you would like to have any further information.

Yours sincerely,

Patricia and John
