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.

Morgan & Izzy

Susan & David


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC


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.

Lucia & Ramon


  • Brisbane, Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

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.

Lucia & Ramon

Nadia


  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Southern suburbs, Syd. SW suburbs


Hello, and thank you for reading my profile.

I have only recently joined Happy House Sitters, but I have often looked after the homes and pets of my friends and neighbours, both in Sydney and in rural Victoria. I myself had a dog for many years (a Labrador-Afghan cross) and three cats (at different times), as well as sheep, cows and chooks. I can supply a reference from my most recent neighbour, whose house, garden and dog I 'sat' over twenty years.

I have owned my own home for the last forty years, but I have recently sold it with a view to downsizing. As I don’t want to buy a new place for a year or so, I am looking to house-sit in the meantime.

I have been a professional author for many years, and I still write full-time. If you have children or grandchildren, they have probably read my picture book, My Place. I also write for adults, and have recently published my memoir, Her Mother’s Daughter.

In 2014 I was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Letters by the University of Sydney, in recognition of “exceptional creative achievements in the field of children's and adult literature”.

If you would like more information about my professional life, please visit my website, www.nadiawheatley.com

I have an office where I keep my research materials but I do a lot of my writing from home, so I would be good company for your pets.

I have always been a keen gardener, and over the last decade I have been the co-ordinator of a flourishing community bush care site on the Cooks River.

Although I am in my late sixties, I am very fit and healthy. I go to aquarobics three times a week and do a lot of walking. I don’t smoke or drink.

I am on the Council of the Australian Society of Authors, and I am a life member of the Cooks River Valley Association.

I have a National Police Certificate (Number NCHRC-2018-96574) certifying that there are no court outcomes or outstanding matters recorded against my name.

Best wishes,
Nadia Wheatley

Hiltrud & Jan(Mr)


  • Bris. Northern suburbs, South Eastern, Bundaberg & Wide Bay, Mackay & Whitsundays

Experienced house sitters with references – responsible, caring, reliable, clean and we love all animals, pampering pets and wildlife.

Hi,
We appreciate that you are probably a little nervous about letting strangers into your house and understand that your property is more than just a house to you - it is your home. We also realise that your pets are probably considered to be your 'children' and we also appreciate your garden is your sanctuary. We know this because we are family people. We love doing all the things that it takes to keep a family home safe, neat and tidy - that's not a 'house-sitting commercial' it's just the truth. We would love to help you enjoy your time away while we care for your home.

ABOUT US: We're an active couple; Jan(Mr) is 63 and Hiltrud is 62 years old. We are very trustworthy and responsible; we are fun loving and enjoy a good laugh. Hiltrud is very neat and tidy and Jan is now well trained? We adore animals and are especially fond of pampered dogs and cats! You can be assured that your beloved will get all of the attention and special care they require. We'll maintain your pet’s normal routine so that life is not too stressful for them, especially since their ‘Mum and Dad” are away on their holidays. We enjoy walking and exercising so daily dog walks are a pleasure and not a chore. Jan previously was in horticulture/gardening for about twenty five years but now works with people who have a disability; he remains passionate about gardening.
We are both non-smokers. Hiltrud doesn't drink alcohol at all and Jan has a glass of wine every now and then. We are private people who respect other people's privacy. We don't pry into others personal lives - we are too busy living our own. We are quiet and respectful.
We have a great deal of experience looking after pets, including dogs, cats, chickens, ducks and fish. Ricky was the last family dog – a cross Great Dane and Boxer, boundless energy and ‘daft as a brush’ but much loved!
OUR POLICY IS TO TAKE CARE OF PEOPLE'S PLACES AS IF THEY WERE OUR OWN; WE GUARANTEE TO LEAVE YOUR PLACE THE WAY WE FOUND IT. WE WILL GLADLY TAKE CARE OF THE FOLLOWING:
- Looking after your home
- Feeding, grooming and caring for the dog, cat, fish, etc - Maintaining house security and a human presence in your home
- All common house cleaning duties
- Garden and lawn maintenance
- Forwarding mail, email and phone messages
- The occasional odd job/maintenance

PEACE OF MIND: We stay at home most of the time, rarely go out nor do we disappear for days on end. We also never commit any of the cardinal sins of house sitting such as look around for something better or change our minds a week before you embark on the holiday you've spent the last 3 years planning! We commit and we stay as agreed. And if this is the first time you've involved yourself in house-sitting, you can also ring us while you're away, whenever you feel stressed, or even send the neighbours over to check on us - we don't mind at all.

REFERENCES & AGREEMENTS: We are happy to provide both written and verbal references of previous house-sitting experience as well as any police checks. Jan also has a current Blue Card and Yellow Card (Positive Notice Cards for Child and Disability related employment requiring stringent police checks). We will gladly engage in any written agreements outlining secure guidelines between both parties to ensure matters such as phone bills, power bills and other mutual agreements, etc.

CONTACTING US: Whilst you are away we are contactable by phone or by email and these get checked virtually every day.

TIME PERIODS: We prefer the longer term house-sits such as 1-6 months or more and we are currently seeking for a house-sit in the Sunshine Coast area.
We love the Sunshine Coast, specifically around Maroochydore, Mooloolaba, Buddina, Warana, Buderim, Mountain Creek, Alexandra Headland, Kawana Island, Sippy Downs, Palmview, Caloundra, Moffat Beach, Currimundi, Wurtulla, Bokarina, Dicky Beach, Moffat Beach, Kawana Waters, Minyama, Marcus Beach, Peregian Beach, Coolum, Coolum Beach, Yaroomba, Pacific Paradise, Bli Bli, Marcoola, Mount Coolum, Ninderry, Twin Waters, Noosa, Noosaville, Noosa Heads, Tewantin, Doonan, Pomona, Cooroy, Cooran and Gympie.

We both look forward to speaking with you soon,

Michael & Gabi

Gabi & Michael

Maz


  • NSW, QLD

I am a single female (non-smoker) employed in education (part-time). During some semesters and during semester breaks I work at home and other times I work one day per week for a few hours. That means I am at home to care for your pets full time or away only a partial day so I would be at home to care for your pets. As well, I have over two years experience with house sitting, where my experience includes three cats at one sit, three dogs at one house sit, birds, fish and cattle with more than seven references indicating excellent care for both home and pets. My goal is to provide excellence in the care of your pets and home. As well I have a police check. In the past I have had the opportunity to house sit/manage a bed and breakfast, where owners were happy with my work. As well I have been house and pet sitting for over two years and receive excellent recommendations. Additionally, I have both rented and owned a home with positive comments on the care of my home and garden. Pets" I grew up with all types of animals including dogs, cats horses and chickens. Animals seem to know I will care for them and react positively to me. My experience with pets includes obedience training. If you are especially interested in my care of your home, I would say that some of my friends might say that I spend too much time cleaning/organising my home and taking care of my yard-- but I enjoy it. For one home, the neighbors labeled my yard as the best cared for with its green grass (that I grew from almost nothing) and lovely flowers. My past times are simple including walking/jogging, reading, movies/tv, gardening and socialising with friends and family. I enjoy a simple life. You can expect that no parties would be held at your property and my focus will be on caring for your pets/home. Sincerely Maz

Lorraine


  • WA

Hello there

I'm a healthy, active, competent, clean living, semi-retired teacher/education consultant, who loves to travel and experience different places and cultures, and find that house/pet sitting is an ideal way for me to do this.

In a former life I enjoyed living and working on a very large wheat & sheep farm in WA, so have experience of caring for farm as well as domestic pets.

I have a current police check, clean driving licence, can provide excellent references, and happy to answer any questions you may have.

Looking forward to hearing from you

Regards

Rosalie


  • Brisbane, South Eastern

Hello,

My name is Rosalie, and I am mid/mature age, but not old. I really enjoy caring for people, animals, and the home.

I spent some time house/pet sitting in New Zealand and also in Brisbane, Gold and Sunshine coast, Toowoomba etc. I had the opportunity to be able to train the little dog, a Shi Tzu cross Griffin. She was great fun and had a good sense of humour. We went for long and short walks along the river and at the beach, which she loved. I have cared for many breeds, sizes and ages of both dogs and cats. Some owners say that their pet misses me when I leave which is a lovely compliment and testimony as to our mutual respect and empathy, and understanding. We both (I and the pets) enjoy walks, grooming, tummy tickles, massages, pats and cuddles; leaving them happy and content..
Homes ranging from kit homes to a $7million home are all treated as a sanctuary, with respect and care, leaving them sparkly clean.

My background is in personal transformation, health, teaching movement, yoga, Pilates, fitness; nutrition and bodywork.
Having spent two years in Japan teaching English as a 2nd language, I learned a lot about myself at the same time as experiencing another culture.

Since a child, our family had pets, so I can relate to and understand their needs. I have had cats, German Shepherd dog, birds and mice (courtesy of my daughters when they were young), and generally have a good rapport with all animals, and people.

I am confident that you will feel secure and at ease while on your trip, knowing that your pets and home will be well cared for.

Kelly


  • Syd. SW suburbs, Bris. Northern suburbs, Bris. Western suburbs

Hello! My name is Kelly and I am a 33 year old professional that works full-time for a State Government department in Parramatta CBD. My work has been predominately remotely based for a few months now, however starting late April/early May I will be based full-time in the office again in Parramatta, My work requires me to have a police check, and maintain a clear police record.

As a result of my previous experiences in helping friends/family out in house sitting while they travel, I have decided that I would like to take up opportunities to help others out with house sitting while I am looking for opportunities to "find my feet" around the Western Sydney area!

I currently own my own home in Brisbane, QLD which I previously lived in full-time for 7 years, but after deciding to rent the property out to do some travel it is now a fully tenanted investment property. After owning and living in my own home, I understand the demands and needs that come with keeping a household running smoothly. For the past few years in between travelling I have lived with a friend ongoing for over 2 years. I am currently house-sitting at my parents’ house full-time to look after their beautiful Chocolate Labrador and Siamese Cat, and I am thoroughly enjoying the experience.

My personal experiences with looking after fur-babies comes from previously owning a cat, a dog, fish, and even a rabbit! I love all animals and I am very nurturing to their needs.

On a personal level, I am an outgoing, happy person that enjoys being dedicated to my career, going to the gym and netball. I am reliable and tidy and always show the upmost respect for people’s personal space and belongings. I do not live a party lifestyle, and happy to be bit of a home body.

I am able to provide character references from my workplace and friends and family, as well as recommendations from friends and family on how I have managed to successfully care for their properties while they have been away.

I am contactable 24/7 and happy to discuss all matters that are important to you when looking for a house sitter. I look forward to discussing opportunities with you. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile! :-)

Alida


  • Sydney, Central Coast, Mid North Coast, Tweed Coast, Adelaide

My name is Alida and I live on the mid-north coast of NSW in a small regional town. I house-sit because it allows me to help home owners enjoy a stress-free holiday while I look after their homes & pets, and I get to enjoy being back in a big city again whilst doing so.
I am retired from the workforce (ex long term Military) and am a non-smoker. I have completed many housesits during which time I have cared for dogs, cats (including rescues), rabbits, birds and fish.
I am very house proud and my aim is to leave your home in excellent condition and ready to welcome you back.
If you think I could be the kind of House and Pet Sitter you are looking for, please feel free to send me a message through this site.

Linda


  • Sydney, Central Coast, South Coast

I am interested in housesits in inner Sydney (CBD/inner west/east/lower north shore). I am a mature (57), reliable, careful and honest person. I work part-time for a university and do some consulting work as well. I am used to living on my own so dealing with domestic hiccups doesn't faze me at all. If you entrust your home to me I am sure you will be happy with the result. I love dogs and cats - have been the human to several over my lifetime - and am very happy looking after them (in fact, this is one of the things that attracts me to house-sitting - if I can't have a pet in my own home, I can look after other people's instead). Happy to discuss other pets.

I am a non-smoker and rarely drink. In my spare time, I sing with one of Sydney's premier choirs.

Linda


  • Sydney, Central Coast, Southern Highlands

I am a mature woman (57), working as a part-time researcher in a university in Sydney. I have been housesitting regularly over the past two years, both for people on Happy Housesitters and for friends. My family has always had dogs - from great danes to a bichon frise - and I have had cats in the past. As a housesitter, I have cared for a variety of pooches, including schnoodle, staffy, maltese and a couple of indeterminate breeds. I am a non-smoker, don't drink much and in my spare time I sing with a premier choir in Sydney.

Libby


  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NW suburbs

Hi. My name is Libby.
I am a single, professional 42 year old animal lover with no children. I do not smoke. I own my own apartment in Hawthorn, but I am looking for short or long term house sitting opportunities closer to my work.

I currently have a long drive to and from work and come home to an empty apartment, as it is not suitable for pets. I would like to have a shorter drive sometimes and come home to a little buddy or two, even if it is just temporary.

I have been house sitting since I was at Uni (from 1995 onwards). Initially I would house sit for extended family, with or without pets and then for friends with pets. I also grew up with a dog and cats and have had fish as well.

I am a responsible, reliable and considerate person, I am clean and tidy and used to looking after my own place. I would take excellent care of your property. I do not have parties. I would be home every weeknight and the majority of the weekend unless there are extraordinary circumstances. I usually live a quiet life. I like peace and quiet and my own company.

Based on where my workplace is, I would like to house sit in the following suburbs:
Pascoe Vale, Essendon, Moonee Ponds, Niddrie, Keilor or inner city suburbs, including South Bank and North Bournemouth. I will consider other areas on a case by case basis.

I am new to Happy House Sitters so I do not have any references available, but can obtain one from my friend I have "house sat" for until I have some. I am also happy to ask my boss or colleagues for a reference. I am in the process of obtaining my Police Check.

I hope I can look after your pets, house and garden sometime soon.

Charlotte & Jon


  • Sydney

Hi, we are Charlotte and Jon, a British professional couple in our late twenties/ early thirties. We started house sitting as a way to get to know different areas of Sydney after relocating from Bristol in June 2018. We have been house sitting back-to-back ever since and have had the most amazing time travelling, making great friends with homeowners and experiencing the beautiful personalities of the pets we look after.

We have just completed our 14th house sit!

Charlotte is a Veterinarian and has worked in the whole range of vet practices from companion animal, exotic pets and out-of-hours emergency work to farm, equine, specialist zoo and wildlife; as you can imagine she is more than happy to care for ANY pets, domestic or exotic! Jon currently works at the University of Sydney and has a passion for animal care, from a childhood full of happy memories of much-loved family dogs, cats and rabbits, to our recent experiences caring for rescued pangolins and other wildlife in the jungles of Vietnam!

We are clean, tidy, non-smokers and proud homeowners and will respect and look after your home and garden in the same manner as our own. We pride ourselves on making our home owners feel comfortable and reassured that their furry friends are in great hands, with regular updates and photos and - of course - leaving an immaculate home ready for your return.

We are both practical, sensible and very reliable people and can provide police checks (from our sponsored visa applications) and excellent references on request.

So far we have had the pleasure of caring for an Italian greyhound, Maltese terriers, a Labrador, a German shepherd, a groodle, a poodle, cocker spaniels, a Staffordshire bull terrier, a British blue cat, domestic short and longhairs, and several moggies, as well as a Netherland dwarf rabbit, guinea pigs, rats, chickens and various fish!

---------------------------------------------------------

House sitting reference from Virginia (Mosman) (contact details available on request):

Jon & Charlotte house sat our home in Mosman for one month in July 2018.

This was our first experience with house sitters and we weren't sure what to expect, but our faith was well rewarded - they proved to be outstanding caretakers. As well as walking and feeding our three-year-old German shepherd and feeding our five-year-old British Blue cat, Jon & Charlotte looked after our six-bedroom home as if it was their own.

When we returned, the house was immaculate - freshly vacuumed and dusted, plants watered, all the sheets and towels washed and replaced - even the fridges were sparkling.

While we were overseas, Jon sent regular updates on our pets and alerted us to any important looking mail that we were expecting. It gave us great peace of mind knowing our beloved pets were in the care of a veterinarian and her partner who so obviously genuinely love animals. We were truly touched by an amazingly lifelike pencil portrait Charlotte drew of our dog as a thank you gift (and amazed at her many talents!).

Both Jon & Charlotte are very easy going and enjoyable company. Our neighbours have commented on how friendly they were, with several asking for their details for future house-sitting opportunities.

I would also be delighted to provide verbal references for Jon & Charlotte.

---------------------------------------------------------

House sitting reference from Keira (Bondi Beach) (contact details available on request):

I highly recommend Charlotte and Jon as outstanding house and pet sitters.

Charlotte and Jon are a trustworthy, caring, communicative, and reliable couple who graciously took care of my senior dog for three weeks whilst I was overseas. Due to his age, my dog requires some special care including the administration of medication and I feel incredibly lucky to have found Charlotte and Jon.

They were thorough and diligent in understanding his requirements and quirky character and I felt completely at ease knowing he was in their very capable hands. Any pet would be fortunate to have experienced and knowledgeable animal lovers like Charlotte and Jon look after them - my dog was sad to see them go.

Their kind and attentive nature extend beyond animals, as they took great care of my flat while they stayed here. It was wonderful to come home to a clean house and a happy dog!

I'd be happy to be contacted as a reference for Charlotte and Jon and couldn't recommend them more.

Thanks so much guys!

---------------------------------------------------------

House sitting reference from Alex & Fred (Five Docks) (contact details available on request):

Thanks so much for leaving the house so clean and tidy, thanks too for your lovely card!

We really appreciate you looking after Bluey who is now chilled out on the back deck! We really appreciate the time you took looking after her and for being so accommodating with us coming and going for the week you were here. You have been perfect house sitters and we enjoyed having you around! Please keep in touch.

We will be happy to recommend you to other potential homeowners, should they wish to contact me for a reference.

---------------------------------------------------------

House sitting reference from Claire and Tony (Marrickville) (contact details available on request):

Jon and Charlotte were incredible housesitters. Our place was immaculately well kept & tidy, and they took the time to care for our garden as well as our pet rabbit, Winston, sharing us updates on him regularly while we were overseas.

I would highly recommend them as housesitters, and I am happy to clarify any further questions you may have.

---------------------------------------------------------

House sitting reference from Shannon and Pete (Mosman):

We could not recommend Charlotte and Jon highly enough. This was our first pet sitting experience and needless to say we are very happy and will continue to use the service especially with people like Jon and Charlotte.

Why did we have such a great experience?

Our little pooch Frankie absolutely loved them. They took such great care of her – frequent walks and constant love and attention. We know she loved them because when we returned home she was so relaxed and happy, when we have picked her up from kennels in the past she has been nervous and anxious and has taken a few weeks to settle back into routine.

On top of treating our furry friend like a princess they kept us up to date with daily photos and updates for the entire 3 weeks.
Jon and Charlotte kept our house immaculately clean – it has never looked cleaner!

I could not fault them and will definitely be having them back again when we go away next.

(contact details available on request):

Charlotte and Jon looked after our house and dog for a week in January 2019. They are a very capable and delightful couple that took great care with both our house and rather needy, but very much loved, dog. The house was absolutely beautiful on our return (better than we had left it!) and the dog was happy. They were great communicators and they were eager to assist with deliveries etc. when needed. We would definitely use them again and would absolutely recommend their services to others.

Happy to provide verbal references upon request.

House sitting reference from Jane (Rydalmere)

Charlotte and Jon were fabulous house-sitters. We needed a sitter with just a few days notice and Jon & Charlotte came to meet with us beforehand and were just perfect. On our return our house was just as we left it and our neighbours commented how lovely they both were too! Our cat Simba is very timid but was clearly at ease in their company and was in good spirits on our return. I won't waffle on because clearly they are faultless and I can highly recommend them to anyone.

I am a mature, responsible and highly conscientious 53 year old lady who is currently on her seventh successful house sit. My 15 year old daughter and I are well-travelled and highly respectful people that adore animals and find we easily establish rapport with them. We often become the ‘aunties’ to our new fur friends on our house sits. We 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. We lead a healthy lifestyle and are 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. We are currently house sitting as we love the freedom and lifestyle it gives us ( we have a base in Redcliffe, a small cottage) and as we no longer have dogs or cats of our own, just love looking after other peoples. My daughter is very mature for her age and is a lovely person with masses of compassion for animals.
We are more then happy to supply references if you require them, both from house sitting, work, school and personal.
I really hope you consider us as we believe you’ll be very happy with us.

  • Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

Hi we are a married couple in our mid 40's. My husband has two sons aged 13 and 14 who stay with us every fortnight for 2 nights, this sometimes changes and if a sit doesn't suit having children there we can adjust this arrangement. We are very house proud and like to live in a clean and fresh space. We have no pets but have been long term dog owners in the past, so we know they are a part of the family and would treat your pet as our own as we would your home. We have also looked after cats, birds and fish in the past.
We have both owned properties in the past and also rented so we are familiar with both sides. Greg is also a accomplished handy man and professional painter. I work from home and study, recently completing a degree in 2018. Greg works full time as a commercial painter, company work place health and safety officer and rope access technician. We are non smokers and enjoy travel, golf, yoga, blogging, movies and health and wellness. We will be returning to Australia at the end of July 2019 after 3 months in the states and are looking to house sit longer term if possible, so we can save for our next trip, experience living somewhere new and enjoy the company of fur babies. Look forward to working with you. References available upon request.

Return Home Delighted, Melbourne.
Hi there. I am a very reliable, capable and experienced solo house & pet sitter. I'm keenly attune to the needs of animals, (including rescue animals), and will look after them with genuine care and love. I'm a non-smoker, lead a healthy lifestyle, and am very neat and respectful of an owners' specific requirements, whether it be for pets, home, and/or gardens.
I returned to my home town of Melbourne five years ago, after seven years working professionally in the Northern Territory. I work part-time (minimal hours) outside of the home, so while you are away your pets will have plenty of company and attention, and your home will be secure.
I come highly recommended and have excellent references! As well as current Police Check and Working with Children Check. I look forward to hearing from you.
Inner Metro MELBOURNE (Zone 1), preferred.

We are well-traveled and when we stay in a property anywhere in the world we look after it properly and leave it in very good order, clean and tidy.

Although we are UK based we are always looking for opportunities to stay in Australia.
We have considerable experience of house/pet sitting with cats mainly, but also with other small animals, here in the UK and in Australia. We also had cats for over 35 years!
We have, of course got references and a police check.
