  • Sydney

I’m a french girl (22 years old) and I arrived in Australia in November. I don't speak English very well yet but I'm getting better everyday. I’m a student in law and I take six month (working holidays visa) to discover Australia and anstralian life. After traveling for 2 months, I look for a place where I can rest for a while before going on a next adventure.
It’s the first time i’m leaving my country for so many time so I search home where i can feel like home for little time. Because after having been backpackers in backpackers, I would like to find a little privacy and tranquility.

I am tidy and organized. I'm looking for a place where I can rest, play sports and find a little bit of everyday life and if in addition I can do service it is even better.

I can take care of a house, do the household tasks, gardenning and take care of pets like there are mine. I had a dog and now i have two cats so i particularly love them.

Louise & Matthew

  • Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. We're a young professional couple (27 & 33) from the UK currently based in Brisbane, looking to experience genuine Australian culture. We are reliable, tidy and considerate people and both have a real love for animals (particularly those of a canine variety!). Having both grown up with pets we are able to take great care of your animals.

We look forward to hearing from you and would love the opportunity to take care of your home — treating it with as much respect as we would our own. Both non-smokers. Reference available below, also feel free to look at our Airbnb reviews:


Richard & Caroline

  • Lower Hunter Valley

We are a retired couple, Richard and Caroline, homeowners, non smokers. Richard is a former farmer and Caroline ex
Royal Navy in the communications branch.
We completed a couple of housesits earlier this year which we thoroughly enjoyed, and now would very much like to spend some time in Sydney, and also the Aldinga Beach, Mclaren Vale area of South Australia. We are available from September 2012 onwards for a sit of any length. References would be available from both sits earlier this year and also from professional people should they be required.
Richard is a very keen gardener, and would be happy to do jobs in the garden.
We both love all animals, and have kept our own dogs always.
We walk 5 km daily, rain hail or shine, and would look after your pets, and your home as we would our own.


  • NSW

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 sport masseuse.

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

Currently I work Mon-Fri evenings on my laptop (home based.)

In addition to this, I do a couple of morning and weekend evening shifts in the city so approx 20 hours a week I would be out of the house, so not suitable for anyone requiring a sitter to be home 24/7.

Refs, police checks etc available upon request.

Preferred Location: anywhere handy to transport connections.


  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. NW suburbs, Syd. Southern suburbs, Syd. SW suburbs

I am a single, non-smoking young professional, working in Surry Hills in the Social Work field. I am looking to housesit while I save money for my next overseas adventure and still be close to work. I love animals and living in a clean and organised space. I am available for any length of house sitting and believe I can take care of your animals and home while you're away. References and a police check are available upon request.

Wendy & Joe (Genfa)

  • Brisbane

We are a quiet, mature aged couple who are clean, organized and responsible. We previously taught in China for many years, and have recently transitioned back to Australia. While we are re-establishing ourselves here, we would like to house-sit. We have just completed one house-sitting assignment for a couple who were in the U.S. for six weeks. We left the house and their pool in sparkling condition, and they were very satisfied. I (Wendy) have also house-sat for a lady in the U.S. during the Christmas vacation time. I took care of her two dogs, which included giving one of the dogs medication daily. I woke up early to take the dogs outside for walks, and played with them during the day. I am currently working for an aged care organization and also as a receptionist for an eye clinic. My husband, Joe, is currently working as an accountant. Joe and I have co-authored two children's books on China. We have a lovely 22 year old daughter who has her own accommodation and who recently graduated from university. We are friendly and kind to neighbours; we are non-smokers and non-drinkers. We don't play loud music or listen to loud TV. We are happy to help out with mowing and keeping the garden looking neat and clean. We both love cats and dogs! We would be more than happy to provide references upon request.

Beth & Peter

  • Mid North Coast, Tweed Coast, Rural/Regional NSW, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

I am a Retired School Teacher - mother of 2.
I am now living in an Over 50s Village in Toowoomba Queensland.
My partner who is also retired, will be joining me for some of my house sitting positions.
I would like to spend some time in Melbourne to see my daughter occasionally and get to know my grandchildren.
We are also looking for House Sitting along the coast of NSW and Queensland.
I have house sat previously mainly in Canberra.
I have also had 2 Golden Retrievers for 28 years and a cat while the children were growing up.
My Partner has also had pets when his children were growing up and is very experienced in anything mechanical or requiring a little maintenance wherever we are.
I am sure we would be able to care for your home and your pets.
I am able to include 2 references and I have other Phone call references but my partner has only joined me on one house sit and we did not think to get a reference. We are house sitting over Xmas so will make sure we get up to date references.
Thanking you

Beth Milne and Peter King

I have two References I will try to enclose.

Bonnie & Kate

  • Melbourne, Northern Vic, SW Vic

I am a retired primary school teacher and my husband is a retired secondary teacher. Our daughter, Kate, is a barista and currently living at home until she starts studying for her Masters in Social Work in Melbourne later in 2018. When minding your home it would either be Kate or myself who comes to stay and there might be two of us or one. My husband might also accompany one of us. There would only be at the most two sitters staying at your house.
All of us are non smokers. We are neat and tidy around the house and if John was to stay then he is a great fix it man and would happily tend to any problems around the home!
We have had a long history of owning dogs of various types (mostly small) in our family. We live on 40 acres of bush near the Grampians in a mudbrick home and there are always plenty of places to walk the dogs. If we sit for you then our son would mind our dog Murphy.
We can provide written or phone references if requested.
We are keen to do the right thing by you and your pet and can guarantee you will both be pleased with our care!
We look forward to meeting you and your pets!

Chris & Lyn

  • Central Coast, Port Stephens, North Coast, South Coast

We are a retired couple who love bushwalking, fishing, our national parks, beaches and coastal headlands. We are clean and tidy and respectful of other people's property, respect the neighbour's right to privacy, peace and quiet, and love pottering around our garden, vegi patch and orchid greenhouse. Non smokers/drinkers. We have an affinity with dogs (and wildlife) having recently lost our third dog, an Alaskan Malamute, the previous dogs being an English Springer Spaniel and a German Short-Haired Pointer. All our dogs have been members of the family.

We would love to house mind in the same high manner we love and respect our own house in and around the Central and North Coast of NSW, including South West Rocks, Hat Head, Nambucca, Port Macquarie, Foster, Laurieton,North Haven, Urunga, Coffs Harbour, Yamba and Iluka. We have previously house sat and have engaged house sitters. See references.

Below, however, are copies of responses from our most recent house sits:

# South West Rocks, June (and August) 2018.

"Hi Lyn & Chris
I hope you arrived home ok, the boys were watching the door all day waiting for you to come back.
Thank you so much for a fantastic job with the house, gardens & looking after the boys (dogs - Ollie and Baz).
I'll let you know when next I'm holidaying, hoping to get to Cairns soon, so I'll let you know my dates.
Lovely meeting you both & catch up again soon.
Di, Ollie & Baz."

# Ocean Shores, November 2017

Lyn & Chris looked after my house dog & chooks for 2 weeks in November
They cared for them well spoilt & fussed over my border collie & kept me up to date with everything.
On my return LYN had a lovely meal waiting which was wonderful after a long drive.
I would recommend them to care for your pets & home with total confidence.
My dog took to Chris instantly he fussed over her played games with her.. she is often very reserved around strangers.
Clearly they love dogs.

Thank you both


  • Melbourne

I am a single, non-smoking, animal loving professional in my early forties and am looking to get to know different areas of Melbourne before putting down roots.

I was introduced to house sitting in France many years ago and recently looked after properties and pets in New Zealand and Perth. In addition to being a home owner myself, I am keenly aware what is required to take care of a property and pets. I have the luxury of being able to work from home and love to run/walk so ideal for anyone with young or energetic dogs. I also enjoy yard work and gardening.

Professionally I worked as private chef for high net worth families for ten years in New York so I am exceptionally well versed in taking care of the homes of others to the highest of standards.

I have references both personal and professional and a police clearance all available upon request.


  • Brisbane

I am a mature, honest and responsible female, currently a home-owner myself of an investment property. I have recently moved after a rental lease period expired and put my possessions in storage until I purchase a property for myself. House-sits of long term period preferred but any period considered.

I have previously owned and lived in my own home until moving to Brisbane in 2012 and would care for yours as if my own.

I am an animal lover and have considerable experience with all types of animals having run my own small farm in NZ and volunteered at Taronga Zoo for 2 yrs. I was an owner and rider of horses in my earlier years. I had a very loving, elderly female cat whom passed last year and miss not having a pet to care for.

I am very fit and agile with a great interest in road cycling and mountain-biking. Gardening and lawn-mowing would be no problem if needed.
I can provide references if required . A Police Clearance is available if required also.

Hope to hear from you soon. Tracy

Patricia & Michael

  • Northern QLD

Hi there. Michael and I are originally form the UK but were lucky enough to move to Australia 11 years ago. We are now both Australian Citizens and after working hard during this time with our own business decided it was time for a bit of a lifestyle change.
We sold up in Sydney and have now been travelling for 7 months with our Caravan and enjoying every moment. We decided to investigate the possibility of housesitting as this would fit in well with our no fixed agenda/timescale and give us the chance to take a break from time to time. Michael worked as an Electrical Technician in the construction field and I have always worked in finance and as an accountant for our business. We are both very active and enjoy a number of hobbies including the shared past time of lawn bowls which I also coach and spent several years with WBNSW state coaching panel. We do not have any pets with us but are quite happy to look after your pets whilst looking after your home. We haven’t ventured down this road before so have no references from previous house owners but can arrange to provide personal references if requested. I have also been police checked as this was a requirement for my coaching with juniors etc. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
All lengths of stay would be considered but as we are currently in the northern part of Queensland for the next few months this area would be most suitable at present. Especially looking for somewhere over the Christmas period.

Janine & Chris

  • Brisbane

Hello. My husband and I are mid 50's. All 3 of our children all live in Brisbane now and we are from Tasmania.
We are looking to house sit to be able to be near our children for a while. I am a Registered nurse and my husband is an ex tradesman.
Both of us are non smokers and only have the occasional social drink. We have owned our own home for 30 years and would look after yours with great care and consideration as we do with ours.
We have our own property in Tasmania with 6 Acres of land so we are familiar with care of the land. We have previously owned many dogs and cats and they were very much members of our family and we would treat your pets as if they were our own too.
In addition to that I have been a foster mum to a number of cats and kittens who were between homes, from the Cat Centre of Tasmania. Something I have loved doing.

We look forward to talking with you about looking after your home.

Casey & Bailey

  • Melbourne, Macedon Ranges, North Eastern, North Western, SE Vic, SW Vic

We are a couple originally from the coastal region of Philip Island in Victoria, who love to travel. One reason why we think house sitting is a terrific initiative is due to the way in which it connects people to places so readily, as well as the peace of mind that home and pet owners can acquire through finding somebody who is willing and ready to love and cherish both their fury friends and the sacred space that is their home. We consider ourselves fun loving individuals who love spending time exploring. We are both vegan, so our love for animals and the planet are two things that we take a lot of pride in! We both study and work from home completing courses that are in alignment with our interests.

We both take a lot of pride in creating a beautiful home space and are exceptionally clean.

We have completed a plethora of different type home and pet sits from all around Australia and are very well versed in what caring for animals and a home entails.

We would be excited to hear from any potential home and pet owners who are looking for caring and compassionate home and fury friend sitters!
Warm regards,
Bailey and Casey.

Steph and Dan


  • ACT, Flurieu Peninsula, South East, VIC

Hello, I am a retired primary teacher. I have a current police check and am experienced at house-minding. I think you will be reassured by my references; these I am happy to email to you. I am a non-smoker. I am used to dogs and cats and fully appreciate that you would want first class minding of your pets. Through this site, over the years, I have minded about 12 homes, some repeat visits. If I mind your home you can be assured that it will be properly cared for.

I have known Mr George Carlyle for many years. During that time I have called upon George to look after my house and garden during my trips interstate or overseas on a number of occasions. George has always been reliable, trustworthy and looked after my place/s very well. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others who need someone to fulfil other such roles, and would be happy to verify my experiences with him as house-sitter and garden carer.
I have also referred him to friends of mine (in Northcote and for a three-month stint in France where pets were cared for as well). All reported being very satisfied with George's involvement.

21 Showers Street
Preston, Vic 3072
To whom it may concern,
I have known George Carlyle for the past six years and felt confident to ask him to look after my property last year. My wife and I travelled overseas for three months and were keen to get someone in to look after the place. We asked George because of his responsible and sensible manner.
I have absolutely no hesitations in recommending George as a house /home sitter as he looked after our place brilliantly which made our trip all the more enjoyable.
Yours Sincerely
Marty F

To Whom it may concern.
I have known George Carlyle for about 30 years. In this time George has always been a person with high standards with a genuine concern for community. George has always shown great respect to any items that he owns or have been left in his care. I feel sure this would be equally reflected in any property that was placed in his possession. As the owner of a beachside property, I have no hesitation in allowing George full, and unlimited access whenever it is available. And have always found it to be left in excellent condition. I have absolutely no hesitation in putting my name forward as a reference in George’s search for house, and honestly believe that any landlord could not get a better tenant.

  • VIC

Hi, I am a fulltime professional housesitter and have been doing this now for 4 Years. I do not not smoke or cosume alcohol and also follow a vegan lifestyle. (I am still happy to feed your pets with meat). I just recently had to add the bit about alcohol as people would often leave me a gift of wine and beer which was very thoughtful. I have decided to slow down my life and take a break from the treadmill of work by travelling around the world, slowly. By doing it this way I get to see more of the world through the eyes of the local communities as well as well as help others who do not want to leave their loved ones in a strange environment with people who will not have much time for them. I gave up my full time job as an IT consultant to work on my hobby which is producing videos for youtube. This means that I tend to spend a lot of time indoors so your pets will have me around a lot more then the average person. I have lived on my own for many years but now travel around and meet people from all walks of life which is a truly amazing way to experience life.

I do not follow the average persons lifestyle in that I practice meditation and yoga. I also on average go to bed about 9:30 and wake up around 5:30 as I like to take in the peacefull mornings and go for a walk practicing mindfullness meditation.

  • North Coast, Brisbane, South Eastern, South East

Hi home-owners, thank you for reading our profile. We are a retired Kiwi couple who moved to Aussie to see more of our family who have lived here for 18 years, and to see more of Australia. Even though we have visited Australia many times over the last 25 years, we have really only been on a short holiday breaks as tourists and to visit family. Now we would love to spend time in the suburbs or the countryside, and take our time looking around. The opportunity to live in and care for a family home whilst exploring Australia, is a responsibility we do not take lightly, and we realise that caring for and loving your pet family members will be your absolute priority when choosing a sitter.

We have been home owners for nearly 50 years so fully understand what is expected to keep a clean and tidy, secure home. We've also been tenants when in between building or buying houses and have fantastic references and a police clearance obtained just before we left NZ. We have raised a family of four, always sharing those years with various beloved pets, either rescues from SPCA or inherited cats and dogs who needed a new family. Of course, our family are all adults now, with families and pets of their own.

My husband is a retired maintenance engineer/ex retailer who can fix darn near anything, run pumps, sort emergencies, etc,. I worked for many years at Presbyterian Support Services, lastly helping to establish a day programme for clients before finally retiring in March 2014, and also volunteered at Literacy Aotearoa as a Adult Literacy tutor. We are happy to supply references upon request.

We run a clean, tidy home and will have have as much respect for your home as we do for our own. We are non-smokers and we both drive. We live a pretty quiet lifestyle, and sad to say, mostly in the daylight hours! We're pretty happy to curl up on the couch at night time, and would love it to be with animals again.

Please copy and paste this link to see our YouTube video....

Thank you.

  • Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, Rural/Regional NSW

I'm a school teacher in Sydney NSW who is always looking for somewhere new to be when the school holidays come around. I love the country lifestyle and would love to house sit in a few different areas to experience many towns to see what they offer. One day I'd like my own little property with all sorts of animals but at this stage my experience with pets is mainly with dogs. Last year I traveled Australia with two old kelpies and we had a ball but due to ill health those little life partners are in doggy heaven now. I just recently helped a friend pick up two new blue cattle dogs and was there to help with the birth of a litter of 8 new puppies. I am known to spoil dogs with lots of walk, cuddles, brushing and a raw chicken wing every now and then! I'm a quick learner and not afraid to get my hands dirty so I'm sure I'd be fine with farm animals as long as I was given instructions on what to do! Ive spent a lot of time in the past as a nanny and baby-house-dog sitter in the city. I've taught newborn to 12 year old children for the past 22 years and run an approved child care facility providing before and after school care and vacation care so I have official police checks. I love the outdoors, rural landscapes, gardening, cooking, reading, relaxing, meditation, music and am super tidy. I like my space to be neat and my things all in one area so I don't need a lot of living space! I would love to help you out whilst you are on holiday and experience where and how you live so I can make some decisions about where I might end up in the future.

Amy & Will

  • Perth

Hi there, and nice to meet you.

We are a couple in our mid twenties, dreaming of a nice temporary base, hopefully with a 4 legged friend or two.

Me, my name is Amy and I'm a 25 year old Danish girl. I simply just love all animals and growing up, we had first cats and later on dogs, which both had a litter, why there was loads of furry friends to cuddle at times. Before buying my own place I house sat for 6 months in Copenhagen which was a great experience. Before i adventured out into the world i was the proud owner of my own flat. Here i lived for about 5 years with my princess of a cat, before i chose to sell and see what the world had to offer. In the past I worked in costumer-service at a dept collective and legal company in Denmark. Since abroad i've mainly been holding bartender and hostel roles while completing my dive master, all in Thailand. After I got certified i worked as a snorkel/tour guide as well as dive guide, showing and teaching guests aged 10-80 around the natural environment I called home.

Will, 27 from the UK is the outdoorsy, active type, Not afraid to get his hands dirty in some gardening or otherwise just long walks he also loves to cook. Growing up with a big, fluffy family rescue dog, who still likes to chase squirrels he's comfortable around pets. Will has besides that been pet sitting for family and friends on countless other occasions, and as a camp ground manager in New Zealand 3+ years ago, he had joint responsibility when costumers brought pets. To the adult stuff, he holds a degree in conservation biology from England and he's two last jobs have been as a bar managers. Firstly in a high-end cocktail bar in NZ on a Work and Holiday visa and following in a hostel and dive (SCUBA!) bar in Thailand.

Whilst in Thailand, we were lucky enough to be living in fully furnished rentals, why we are accustomed to be respectful and take good care of whichever home we're living in at the time. We've always treated every property as was it our own.

We are both responsible, non-smokers and happy people who are arriving in Perth on our Work and Holiday visa 12th of December, searching for 1-2 bases over Dec-January.

Thanks for taking your time to read about us and please do not hesitate to get in contact, if there's any questions.

Last but not least references and police checks are available by request.

Looking forward to hear from you,

Amy and Will

Peter & Asta

  • Adelaide, TAS, Melb. Inner suburbs, Geelong, Geelong, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

Hello, My wife and I are going to Melbourne to catch up with family from 9 January to 23 January 2018. We own a house in Leeming, a suburb approximately 14km from the centre of Perth. We have one rescued greyhound over 10 years old and a 12 year old cat. I work full time as a Deputy Principal at a northern suburbs high school and my wife Asta is a full time artist, pet visitor and animal advocate - in particular for greyhounds and animals used in experimentation. She is of course a vegan while I am a vegetarian. We have pet sat in 2016 in Adelaide through Happy House Sitters - looking after an elderly dog and cat. The family was extreme happy with our house and pet sit, as were we. Over the last 6 years Asta has looked after our neighbour's house and cats when they have been on extended holidays. They have provided a glowing reference. Currently Asta visits a dog called Maisie (a good reference attached) and another house with 7 rescue cats and 3 small rescue dogs several times a week. We are 'mature adults' in the 50s and 60s age bracket. We are happy to look after a home and garden, but we are also well equipped, and particularly keen to provide animals with love and companionship.

Bruno & Gail

  • Brisbane, South Eastern

Hello, we are Bruno and Gail, husband and wife. Bruno sold his cafe business a few years ago now and I had been working in administration for Community Nursing in Australia. Bruno was born in Italy, and brought up in France. He speaks fluent French & English, fully understands Italian, and speaks basic Italian. I was born in Australia.

With housesitting we have found that we are thoroughly enjoying the company of pets and their different personalities. We consider it to be a great privilege as we are being trusted with your lovely home and beloved pets. You can be sure that we will never take this for granted. We appreciate they are precious family members and will treat them as our own providing them with love, comfort, attention and exercise. Housesitting enables us to combine our love for animals and pets with our passion for travel. With house and pet sitting we are interested in living in a community and not just being a drive through tourist. We understand that the care, security and safety of your pets and home are of the utmost importance and we believe in giving 110%. We are also extremely aware and respectful of your privacy within your home.

We are financially secure, honest, clean living, non-smoking very proud house owners and would respect and treat your home as if it was our own. Although at present we do not have any pets of our own, due to travel plans, we have owned various pets over the years.
We both come from customer service backgrounds and we feel that this gives us the ability to have a caring, nurturing attitude and an eye for detail. We are able to take decisions and deal with difficulties responsibly when they arise leaving you to be away and have peace of mind. We have had experience in repair and maintenance of properties with also having fully renovated another property that we own. (Apart from making a mean coffee Bruno is very handy)
To date we have done 42 sits and have been invited back by homeowners for future sits.
We have our own website where all of our references can be viewed as we are members of several housesitting sites. Here, you can also learn a bit more about us.
