  • VIC

Hi there,
Im Sarah, 38 years old. Im currently finishing up a house sitting position which I've maintained for almost 3 months, and looking for the next great home that I will have the honor of taking care of.

I'm a very tidy, mature minded, and responsible individual. I love the idea of taking care of your fur babies as I enjoy the company.
I like to keep a healthy mind and body, so more than happy to walk and or play with your pets.

I grew up with my own animals and have house sat/minded pets previously for friends (cats and dogs).

As I work at the airport, I have undergone a police and security check, if that helps to know :)

Look forward to hearing from you,
Sarah.

Carolyn


  • Melbourne

Hi! My name is Carolyn and I am a 38 year old, non-smoking professional. I work full-time and own a property that I rent out while I continue enjoying house and pet sitting around Melbourne. I started house sitting many years ago, looking after the homes and pets of colleagues, friends and family. When I made the decision that I would love to house & pet sit more often, I signed up to this website. I've now been house sitting through this website for over 5 years, and I love staying in many different parts of Melbourne and exploring new areas.

I simply adore all kinds of animals, but mostly have looked after dogs, cats, birds and fish. As I house sit throughout the year I’m unable to commit to having my own pets, so I would love to commit to yours! Your fur babies will be given lots of love, fuss, and as many cuddles as they desire. It is important to me to follow your routine with your pets as closely as possible. I would very much enjoy taking excellent care of your fur babies, just as you do!

I am a clean, responsible and considerate person and I consider it a privilege to care for your home and pets. As well as happy pets, your home will be well looked after and on your return you will find it as clean and as tidy as when you left. I would really like for you to have peace-of-mind while you are away, so I am more than happy to provide you with as many updates from home as you'd like :).

Jane & Adam


  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

Hi!
My name is Jane and my husband is Adam and we are looking for house sitting opportunities so we can fast track our savings and move into our own home in the next year or so. We view house sitting as a fantastic way to help us save money for a house deposit and also get a feel for living in different areas of Melbourne.

We both love animals and are extremely respectful of other people's property and would treat your home just as we do our own. Adam is a chef and I work with clients with acquired brain injuries and I also have the luxury of working from home sometimes too, so your fur babies would get plenty of attention.

We are non-smokers, both have a current police check and can provide references too. If you would like further information, please contact us.

Many thanks

Jane & Adam

I have many years of experience with all types of animals, in various locations in Australia. Non smoker, non drinker. I have been housesitting since I was in my teens and am returning back to housesitting after a year break. Before that I housesat back to back locally and interstate, enjoying return jobs from happy home owners. I enjoy the freedom and variety that housesitting brings, a chance to spend time with a happy fury face.

We are a couple in our 50s from Canberra. We have three grown up sons, two live at home. We also have a lovely rescue dog called Mage. Mage will stay in Canberra with our sons while we are away.
Peter will be working in Melbourne from time to time in the first 6 months of 2019, and we are interested in house/pet-sitting for those times. Carmel will not be working whilst we are house-sitting, so will be available to be home for pets if necessary. We are a quiet couple, non-smokers and are quite active. We walk each day - usually with our dog, and we are keen gardeners. We are clean and tidy, and happy to care for house, garden and pets. We have minded pets in the past whilst friends and relatives have been away. In 2018 we had three house-sits in Melbourne, looking after dogs and chooks.
Police checks and references are available upon request.

I am a happy, friendly, 63 year old semi-retired house-sitter who is a fit, non-smoking, mature female; honest, reliable, house and garden proud. I grew up on a farm thus have familiarity, experience, patience and love for animals and pets, having grown up caring for many various pets of my own.
I have a passion for gardening and landscaping; I have the time to care for, walk and empathize with your pet/s missing their owner/s while keeping your home safe and as you left it. I have always owned my own homes and worked in responsible professional positions; married for 40 years to an electrician who works away six months of the year, with adult independent children living interstate pursuing professional careers.
I will respect your home, garden and beloved pets with the care I show my own. I can supply a Police Check, Working with Children Check (pets are our children!), House Owners and character references when required.
I am willing to listen carefully to your instructions, preferences & requirements. Thank-you, Dianne :)

Matthew


  • Melbourne

I am a single non smoking professional in Albert Park. Having grown up in the suburbs of Perth with both cats and dogs, I've always been fond of pets as well as the outdoors. Now in Melbourne in a small apartment, my reason for house sitting is to spend time with pets, treating them as my own. I'm naturally interested and love time with cats, dogs and other pets (I've taken care of rabbits and lizards....) While I love walking dogs or patting cats, I know that there is great responsibility in caring for animals. My work requires much attention to detail and a high level of organisation. I bring these skills to be house sitting, ensuring you return home to relaxed, happy pets and a clean house. I'm a clean living, non smoker, non drinker, who enjoys bicycle riding, jogging and a good non fiction book. I'm not a party animal at all, having a reputation for being "that responsible, clean, studious guy". I also enjoy volunteering in the community doing community arts and music.

Paul & Janet


  • North Coast, TAS, Melbourne

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.

Cheryl


  • NSW

I am a single mother in my late 30’s looking to save money for a house deposit while keeping your home and pets in excellent care. My 4 year old daughter will be helping me to keep your home clean and dogs happy. I’m a professional (Legal field), working full time in North Ryde while my daughter attends child care near my work.
We enjoy going for walks to parks, baking on Sunday afternoons, catching up with family and friends and exploring local areas. I’m very clean (tipping OCD levels), and love to give dogs cuddles and pats. Our 14 year old staffy/ Ridgeback passed away last year so we love taking care of other dogs until we get our own home and can think about welcoming another furry member of the family.
Unfortunately, my daughter is allergic to cats so we can’t care for most cats unless they’re hypoallergenic. My daughter still sleeps next to me so we only need one bed. My belongings are in storage so no need for caravan space etc, however a car space would be handy for my car.

I was a teacher for 14 years so I have a police check, working with children check and teaching accreditation. I volunteer for a couple of organisations in my spare time and enjoy helping others. I have house sat for family and friends in the past so I can provide references if you wish.

If I sound like the type of person you want with the responsibility of taking care of your home or furry family member, please drop me a message and I’ll respond ASAP. At this stage I’m looking for house sits close to my work and for longer periods rather than shorter periods to avoid too many changes for my daughter.
I hope to hear from you soon!

Hello :-).
Note: I am not available until end of June 2019.

My name is Birgit. I am a professional single mature age woman, am extremely house-proud and adore animals, in particular cats and dogs.

I work as a consultant (ex academic) and do a lot of my work from home which gives me plenty of time to be around your adored furry family members.

I would love to care for your home and give your loved pets lots of TLC as if they were my own. Being single with grown up children I cherish the feeling of being needed while putting your mind at ease when you are away from home. I love reading, writing and listening to music, enjoy gardening and being in nature.

I have house and pet sat in the past, here and overseas whenever I found myself in a transitional period for my work. I enjoyed taking care of all the adorable animals and treasured homes that had been entrusted to me by wonderful people in both Sydney, Melbourne and recently again in London over the last two years immensely. It never took me long at all to establish a bond with the animals and, I am happy to say, also to connect beautifully with the home owners and pet 'parents' which has led to being invited again to house and pet sit for them.

Please refer to my references here on this website which confirm my sincerity and respectful approach. I have only just now returned to house and pet sitting and therefore do not have any written recent references here on this site. However, I have been asked again to house and pet sit for a family in Balmain again recently who are happy to be contacted. You are also welcome to check out my LinkedIn profile as part of a reference.

Please call me on my mobile any time. Should I not answer immediately I will return your call as soon as I can.

Kind regards,

Birgit

  • South Coast

At present I am available from 04/03/19!


Mature-Minded, Professional, Responsible & Experienced House/Pet Sitter! Single - 37 Years Old - Non-smoker - Social Drinker (rare) - Pescetarian.


Having experience in UK, WA, SA and Vic and NSW again, with a variety of animals including dogs, cats, birds, fish, rats, horses, a pony and chooks, I offer you and your pets the care-free companionship they require when you take off for work or pleasure... I did previous holiday sits in Sydney and the UK, with a big continuing stint in Sydney for two years (from 2010 - 2012) and I returned to house sits to travel from WA to NSW then (from end 2015 - date). A lot of ongoing relationships have occurred due to my time sitting for singles/couples.


Being both an animal lover and home-body, I can dedicate plenty of time to offering all furkids as close to their usual home life as they are accustomed, whilst ensuring any of the other needs around your home and property are met; according to any pre-arranged agreement upon meeting. I've taken on sits without meet and greets also so I am as flexible as possible depending on location when booked.

Testimonials/endorsements are previous sits in NSW, Vic, SA, WA and the UK, and available for you to review prior to discussing or meeting in order to assist with your decision making. Below will be a link to another profile I use (Aussie House Sitters) in order to review additional references that are posted by owners... Recent sits since returning to NSW have resulted in a great deal of call backs, repeats and/or referrals to friends and family; after a lot juggling trying to make unique/long term offers work, I aim to stick to one or two regions that are approx. an hour or so to the general area I am familiar with (South Coast) in order to gear up to live and work in a more stable fashion.


As you may notice from my pictures, I do also come with a little dog and this has not been a problem in securing sits along the way... including pet free sits. I can provide more images and some videos of Sammy with other animals to help reassure you and my references speak for themselves about his behaviour in other peoples homes, but I avoid applying for any I don't think would work on our end and never accept any if I feel the animals won't gel!!! He's not a fan of most big breeds... and cats can be hit / miss; but I've been able to do many sits that required cats/dogs to warm up to each other by cleverly using space. Sam was a rescue but has lived with me with other dogs for nearly 5 years... he is almost 7, healthy and vaccinated, house trained, and mellow within home when it's just us (i.e. not other people). We've just revisited training in a longer term sit and, although he's kept on a lead if there is no enclosed garden, his recall has been great in recent house sit where he's been able to run around in mature gardens! He is a lone wolf... but will enjoy a play with other little dogs and tends to be careful / submissive in other dogs homes and happily shares his beds and toys around. He's a lap dog but, if not allowed 'up', stays on floor.


You'll see from my references just how diverse the homes and animals; in terms of 100 acre property in SA with many horse, 100 acre pet free near Maitland and a variety of pet free in Sydney and coastal or country homes with dogs and cats (including 5 acres in the country and a home opposite the beach). These references do also highlight how I will maintain and leave your property (generally the cleanliness is appreciated and has often been noted as 'better than we left it' which is rewarding when owners return home). I've previously worked as a Community Support Worker where I assisted people in the community and in their homes as well as supplementing previous study periods as a cleaner.


I have studied and/or worked during my house sit periods and, currently, studying casually waiting for my Citizenship ceremony. I am a Permanent Resident and lived here 10 yrs.
I've provided this comprehensive profile in order to swiftly reply to advertised sits and feedback has suggested this is very helpful and reassuring for owners. I appreciate your time reviewing my personal information. Here is a link to my Aussie House Sitters profile:

We look forward to hearing from you!

We are a 'senior' couple (non-smokers) and have recently moved to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland area after having sold our rural property in Tasmania late last year.

In 2017 we became "professional house sitters" and enjoyed the experience very much. However we made the decision to become home owners again late 2017, but this does not mean we have "retired" and will always consider any suitable situations.

We would particularly be interested in discussing our suitability for your needs if you live in the Sydney Northern/Eastern suburbs, Melbourne City suburbs or far North Queensland.

We are practical people and have mostly lived on small acreage properties in Tasmania. We've enjoyed the company of many pets over the years including 2 cats, 2 dogs, a pet sheep, 2 goats (so not 'pet'!) and chickens.

We have had work experience related to housesitting placements when we worked on a remote Pilbara island, and in Coral Bay, WA. Doug was responsible for pool maintenance and general groundsman work, and I did housekeeping duties - and kitchen hand! It was a great experience living on a remote island, and fairly challenging coping with a Pilbara summer. We have also worked in a remote Aboriginal Community in the N.T. Doug was the Essential Services Operator and I looked after the Creche in the morning before changing hats to be the Centrelink Agent/general office admin. person in the afternoon. It was another wonderful opportunity and gave us an insight into the lives of Australia's indigenous people.

During 2017 (our 'gap year') we had the pleasure of meeting several home owners and their pets, and now have experience with managing big, bouncy dogs to the little feisty ones, chooks and cattle.
We can supply excellent references with one home owner declaring we would win a house sitter of the year award - if there was one!
We fully appreciate that making the decision to have people you don't know come to your home and care for your pets, garden and house may be a difficult one. We would like to assure you we would take the time to listen to what is required for your 'loved ones' to remain happy in their home, and would promise to care and respect your property as if it was our own. We are honest and reliable people!

Most recently we had police checks done, which is a requirement for people working for the Australian Electoral Commission in OIC roles at State and Federal Elections, and this we have done on many occasions. We are in the process of obtaining our own police checks. Also police checks were done when working in the N.T. and when I did volunteer work for Vinnies (Airlie Beach) and The Red Cross (South Perth).

Our interests are travel, music (member of a Community Band) quilting, gardening, walking and baking. I love to discover new speciality shops, delis, etc. We enjoy concerts and the theatre.

Below are two references, contact details could be supplied once you have made contact with us, and as we receive new ones we will add them as well.

Thanks for taking the time to read our profile, and we look forward to hearing from you.

Thérèse and Doug Boote.

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

I am a, 40-ish non-smoking. non-drinking, trustworthy professional, currently living in Wollongong and working full-time in Sydney.
I am looking to save for my first home, and have stumbled upon house/pet sitting as a perfect way to assist in that regard, as well as cut out my daily commute.

I have lived in rentals for the past 10 years down in Melbourne and have decided to move back to my home town of Sydney.
I have always treated any rentals as I would my own home, with care and responsibility. I am conscious of the care and
security needed in keeping a house maintained. I have grown up with pets and consequently I believe that I would be able to take great care of yours. I am available for any length of
house sitting and can provide both personal and professional references, I would also be happy to obtain a police clearance.

Please feel free to contact me any time to discuss your needs.

About Me
Thank you for reading my profile. I am a 31 year old working professional female who is easy going, happy and driven. I have a very recent working with children check that was completed in March this year, and I also have a recent Police Check - as well as a 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 house sat for friends - and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My reasoning for wanting to continue is to enjoy the downtime it brings to be able to live alone, be close to work (in the CBD), whilst enjoying the company that furry friends offer 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 with no fur creatures. If you have pets, I know what it is like to be away from fur children. I like to send occasional pictures to update to those who I am sitting for (if you would like them!). And yes, I can supply references on request.

Louise


  • VIC

We are experienced long term housesitters, house sitting since 2013 and have completed numerous housesits in both Australia and around the world.

We enjoy getting to know the personalities of the animals we care for and giving them affection (if this is something they like). We have cared for a range of animals including cats, dogs, fish, a sheep, parrots and frogs and enjoyed each experience. We have also maintained a range of different houses, including their gardens, pools and spas.

We are both social workers who are active, we love to walk, run, swim and ride our bikes and then hang out at home on the sofa and relax and read books or watch movies! We are non smokers, we do like the occasional drink but we are not party people and when house sitting we are most likely to be relaxing at home enjoying some quiet time, cuddles with pets and enjoying our environment.

We maintain a blog of our housesitting experiences (please contact me for the url details). The blog provides an overview of each housesit and references, our referees are happy to be contacted to verify any details.

We are home owners ourselves, we started housesitting in 2013 before going overseas for 18 months and we carried on housesitting when we returned to Melbourne. As home owners we know how to care for a home, the importance of maintaining a clean home and ensuring that any issues are addressed in a timely manner.

We are both required to have police checks for our employment which can be provided if required.

When in Melbourne we both work and will need to be out of the home from approximately 8.30 to 5.30 depending on location.

Gaye


  • Melbourne, Geelong

Hi there. Just a little introduction to who I am.

About Me:
I'm a happy, quiet, capable and energetic grandmother. I can provide impeccable references, I have a police check and am happy to undergo any other checks you need.

About Me with Animals:
While my four children were growing up we loved and cared for many animals, including dearly loved, eccentric cats, rescue dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, turtles, an incredibly bold and affectionate budgie, mice, and a beautiful rat named Genevieve,

About why I am here:
I have just retired and am ready to spread my wings, Since I love to feel I"m helping others and also adore animals, a good friend suggested that house and pet sitting might be a brilliant way to get started.. So here I am, a bit shy, but excited to meet new furry (and human) friends.

I look forward to giving your home and your furred and feathered friends the love and attention they need when you cannot..

Sincerely,

Carolina


  • Sydney

Hello! My name is Carolina and I am Argentinian / Canadian / Australian. Last year, I quit my job to travel for 6 months. I was lucky enough to secure some house and pet sitting opportunities while I was overseas and loved each experience. During my trip, I took care of a friend's dog in Italy while she was on holidays. I also took care of my friend's country home and 4 dogs in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since returning to Sydney in December, I have looked after a friend's two cats in Waterloo for 6 weeks and I am currently cat sitting 3 fur balls in Rockdale. I will be moving to Lilyfield on April 19th to look after one cat for three weeks. I would love to continue to house and pet sit throughout the year so I am looking to line up various assignments ahead of time. I am excited about the possibility of continuing to embark in new experiences in Sydney now that I returned from travelling. I love animals but do not have any of my own. House / pet sitting gives me the chance to be around animals more often! It also gives me the chance to get to know different neighbourhoods in Sydney.

I am quite sporty and love the beach. I am clean and tidy and respect any home I enter. I work full at UTS in Health and Wellbeing but have plenty of time to take care of your pets and property.

I am able to provide references. I am also on Aussie House Sitters and Trusted House Sitters and my references are posted there as well. I recently undertook a criminal record check and a working with children check.

I hope to hear from you!

Morgan


  • Sydney, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast

Over the past 3ish years Morgan (41) and Izzy (37) have provided security, love and care for both homeowners’ furry family members, and their homes.

We look after your home as if it is our own, thankfully we’re both tidy, responsible and genuinely value leaving a place better than we found it.

Professionally we are both video producers and biz consultants (emphasis on Morgan), and copywriters and video editors (emphasis on Izzy). We often work from home, meaning we’re able to provide company for both your 4 walls, and your pets.
Morgan is also an avid DIY’er and enjoys helping with certain household tasks &/or fix-ups you might need done while you’re away.

We’re cinephiles, explorers of new places (whether around the corner, away from the city lights or across the globe) and avid foodie adventurers - both in and out of your kitchen :) .

We both grew up with various pets: dogs, cats, rabbits, and even a horse for Izzy, and genuinely miss all the care and engagement they encourage.

Feel free to get in touch and query away if you feel we’d be a good fit for your needs.

Hi! We are a mature aged, professional couple who own a home in Byron Bay and love travelling and discovering new places!

We are both self-employed (David is a book publisher and Susan is a bookkeeper/BAS agent) and can work from home. We collectively have passions for books/knowledge, food, nature, animals, travel, music, the arts, and life!

We previously house/pet sat in 2013 for 4 weeks at Coolum Beach, Queensland. This homeowner has now re-engaged us for 7 weeks and we are currently taking care of her resort style apartment at Kawana Island, and her delightful puss Phil! (Phil is modelling in our profile pictures.)

In 2019 we’ve decided to house/pet sit for 12 months and will be accruing references along the way. Two references from jobs done in the past are uploaded on our profile and more character references are available on request.

We have also spent the past 5 years offering our spare room in Byron Bay on AirBnB and quickly achieved Superhost status. We have many outstanding reviews from our guests who consistently rated us highly on the meticulously clean presentation of our home, and our warm, friendly, helpful attitude. We ensure that our guests have the best experience possible. A link to these reviews is available.

It goes without saying that we would treat your home with the utmost care, and lavish loads of love and affection onto your precious pets! We adore animals and are hoping that house/pet sitting will be able to fulfill our desires for both travel and animals simultaneously.

We are very flexible with our dates and locations and are willing to travel far and wide.

If you’re looking for a happy, reliable, trustworthy, pet-loving couple who like to go the extra mile then please contact us to discuss your house/pet sitting needs. If distance prevents a personal meeting beforehand we are always available for a ‘cyber meeting’ on Skype!

We wish you all many happy holiday experiences and wonderful travel adventures and hope to meet you and your pets soon.

We both are experienced house and pet sitters, in Brisbane and in New Zealand (references on request).

Our current life style doesn't allow us to have our own dog or cat permanently, and we've chosen house-sitting as a way to spend time with pets in a more flexible way.

Ramon is born and bred in Brisbane, Lucia is originally from Spain and have called New Zealand home for the last 9 years. We're relocating to Melbourne now and are in the search of opportunities to spend time with pets while we explore what it's like to live in different areas in Melbourne, until we find our home where we can have our own dog.

We both have flexibility to work from home, and can easily adapt to your pet's needs. We're clean and tidy and will leave your house just as you found it, if not better!

Looking forward to meeting you and your loved furry one/s.

Hello :)??

My name is Milly and my Fiance' Sam and I are looking for a lovely home to house sit over the next few months or so and If you have pets this is a bonus as we both adore animals.

We can't wait to have our own pets one day so this is a really nice adventure for us for now. 

We are tidy, down to earth and respectful 27-28 year olds.

?We love gardening and will be able to keep an eye on your treasured plants. We both grew up in the country… me on a herb farm and Sam in Country NSW where his parents were Stock and Station Agents.

?I am a teachers assistant at a Melbourne Steiner School and Sam is a Freelance Web Designer and works mostly from home. We are both very artistic and love spending time outside of work being creative at home. We drink very little and are non smokers.

We are currently finishing up a house sit with a dog and looking for a house sit for a minimum of 4weeks (longer the better). We are getting married at the end of the year and we are doing this to save money. 

??We have great references from our past house mates and 2 house sits so far. Many great professional/personal references too. ??We would love to look after your Home and will treat it like it was our own.

We look forward to hearing from you soon! :)
