Ian & Gill

  • Adelaide

We are both trustworthy, responsible, non smokers and employed full time as a maintenance officer and school teacher. We are looking to house sit whilst our new home is being built. Coming from the country originally we have been surrounded by a variety of animals throughout our lives. We are both animal lovers and until recently have had our own pets which have played an important part in our lives.
We really enjoy the outdoors and in particular, gardening, walking and spending time with our family. We would love the opportunity to care for and maintain your home as we would our own, and to give your pets the loving attention they deserve so that they will feel comfortable and safe in your absence.
As this is our first house sit opportunity, we do not have any sitting references, but are more than happy to supply personal and /or professional references should you require. We are available for any length of time.

I am a single, fit and healthy 63yr old retired Nurse and part time house cleaner. I am very house proud and would treat your home with the same respect I would my own. I am also an animal lover and lead a lifestyle that promotes this. I have previously volunteered in an animal rescue center caring for a wide variety of animals including, dogs, cats, birds, ducks and many others. I have also volunteered at a rescue center for abused and neglected horses. I enjoy a quite lifestyle and spending time at home which gives me plenty of time to keep your fur babies company. I also have a passion for gardening.
I sold my own home to travel around Asia and am not ready to buy another property at this stage. I thought house sitting would be a wonderful alternative as I have house sat in the past and enjoyed it very much.
I can provide references and a police check.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Have assisted with cherry orchard. . picking, packing, sales etc. Gardening. pruning, general maintenance, lawn mowing. Monitoring small flock sheep, llamas, and caring for the girls, two kelpie dogs!!! We have also cared for house/farm property at Culcairn. As we have to travel back to Wagga on a regular basis to assist and care for elderly relative we can no longer travel to far away. Our family live on South Coast NSW and Bairnsdale Vic and our plan is to eventually settle in the Bairnsdale area so would be very interested in finding house sits there. We are both non smokers, hubby enjoys the occasional beer, plays social bowls, loves yarn especially with retired truck drivers.. working with machinery. We both love animals and enjoy caring for them, we have had our own fur pets, but when our little dog had to be put to sleep we decided .. no more until we settled down.. I enjoy gardening, movies, reading and have done volunteer work ( not so much, since we been travelling) scrapbooking, card making. walking. We are both very tidy and particular how we care for our own and other peoples possessions. We are happy to try most chores on farm and Ron usually is the worker, I do what I can to support him.

  • NSW

Hi guys! This is me...................
* REFERENCES - National Police Clearance, References from real estate agents who have sold my previous homes, character references, homeowner references - all available on request.
I am a professional, full-time housesitter. I DO NOT charge a fee. I love travellilng, meeting wonderful people & making lots of furry friends! This is not a holiday for me, but my dream lifestyle, & I take my housesitting responsibilities very seriously. I was "born to housesit" & I absolutely love it!
I am non-denominational in religion but lead a Christian lifestyle, with good family values. I do not smoke or drink, do not have parties. I am vegan, very health-focused, love exercise & being outdoors in nature. I am home a lot, so can spend lots of time with your animals, maintain property security & attend to all houseshold / gardening chores. I don't go out at night.
I am very capable, independent, healthy, happy, friendly, reliable & extremely organised. I have always owned my own home & always had pets. I enjoy a "simple life" - much happier with less material things & more quality time spent with family/friends, exercising, eating well, being in nature, being with animals. I love meeting people from "all walks of life" - especially people from different races, cultures, age groups, religions & lifestyles.
I spent many years working full-time in a NSW government department doing legal work. I spent two years working as a part-time cleaner in a high-security bank. I spent the last two years studying.
I absolutely adore all animals & believe they are a big part of any family - you can be assured that I will treat them very well & include them in all family activities. I can do grooming, give medication, am confident with disabled or elderly pets. I can handle big dogs who pull on the lead. I can walk dogs twice per day - to the beach / park / around the neighbourhood. I will give all animals lots of company, play love & attention - whatever they need to keep them happy & sticking to their routine. I can send you daily photos / texts / emails of your pets playing / walking etc, to show you they are being well cared for & to give you peace of mind. I carry an RSPCA Pet First Aid Guide, to give immediate first aid to pets if needed. I have a stationwagon with a pet/cargo barrier to take your doggies on outings if they like. I have cared for rescue pets, dogs, cats, chooks, rabbits, cows, goats, bees, fish, wild birds, caged birds, alpacas & a pony - all of which I have photos.
I am very house-proud & keep a spotless home. Your home & surrounds will be immaculate upon your return. I never wear shoes in the house, never put feet on furniture, always use coasters/tablecloths. I never eat on the lounge or walk around the house with food. My family has over 100 acres on NSW Mid North Coast - so I have experience with ride-on mowers & regular mowers. I can do whatever you need me to - collect mail, forward important mail to you, take phone messages, be home for tradesmen, put bins out, start car engine so battery doesn't go flat, water plants, gardening. weeding.
I will not use your car, phone or computer - I have my own. I will not use your microwave or dishwasher - I just don't like them. I very rarely use a dryer.
Prior to your return, I can stock the fridge/pantry. I will leave dinner & the following morning's breakfast for you. I would never have guests over without your permission.
pillows, pillowcases, mattress protectors, rice cooker, blender, water filter, kitchen tidy bags, tablecloth, household items (dishwashing liquid, handwash, toiletries, washing powder), I just need sheets, towels & blankets please.
I am happy to sign an agreement.
I have 2 wonderful children - aged 10 & 8. We "homeschool" on the road. They are extremely well-behaved, mature, very clean & tidy, do not break things, do not run around the house, do not wet the bed (I bring my own mattress protectors anyway), are very respectful of other people's property & absolutely adore all animals! They are very gentle & kind to animals, do not play rough & do not hurt them in any way. They have been brought up as vegan & to understand the importance of treating living things as equals. All of my previous homeowners will testify that my children are no problem at all - they are an asset - with all the love & attention they will give to your pets. You will see for yourself how well-behaved they are. It also means that we can walk three dogs at a time, not just one! They have their own references & their photos are attached.
* BEDDING - we only need a double & single bed please. And we are minimalist, which means we don't need a lot of living space.
Thankyou & look forward to hearing from you soon!

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

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

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

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

Available mid November to 24 December and from 14 Feb 2018.

Charles & Narrelle

Melinda & Chris

  • S. West


Thank you for looking at our profile :)

A little about ourselves:

* My name is Melinda and I’m 43 and am the manager at a retail store in Bunbury. My husband Chris is 49 and has decided to change careers and is a mature age student at Tafe.
* It is just the two of us, with no kids or pets.
* Non smokers.
* Mature and relaxed (not party people!).
* Very clean and love to have a tidy home (have been told I’m OCD! Just means I’m thorough and house-proud!).
* We have gardening experience.
* We love all animals and had 2 cats (both have recently passed away, after being spoilt and living to a good old age). Along with cats, we have both loved having growing up, dogs, gold fish, budgies, chickens and horses and we really miss having the company of fur-babies! We both have experience in giving medication to pets.
We will look after your fur-baby like they were our own!
* We have house-sat before, when we travelled North Queensland back in 2012 and have recently house-sat in Bunbury, Western Australia.

We are looking at house-sits around the Bunbury, W.A area.

We can provide excellent references upon request and are in the process of obtaining Police Clearances (which we have previously had).

Have a great day and we look forward to hearing from you :)


  • South Coast

I am a single, non-smoking 57 year old female and relocated to the South Coast of NSW in November 2016. I am a responsible, reliable and considerate person, and would take excellent care of your pets and property.

I enjoy the company of pets and love taking care of them. I have grown up with cats, and while my children were young we had a dog, chickens, ducks and goats.

I also enjoy gardening and consider myself a greenthumb.

Prior to moving here the last five years I house sat and rented in Melbourne and enjoyed looking after other people’s pets.

Prior to moving to Melbourne I had been living in northern NSW for fourteen years in my own home and am conscious of the care and security needed in keeping a home and garden maintained. I would love the opportunity to care for your pets and home while you are away.

References from previous housesits are available.

I look forward to hearing from you.

warm regards,

Harel and Mazal

We are seasoned House sitters who love love animals and will care for your home as if it were our own. We are both non-smokers.

We have done house sitting on and off since 2011 - one of which was a long term 2 ½ year house sit - written reference attached. We also have the contact details of other couples we have house sat for and are happy to pass on these details.

Having a suitable place to park/store our Caravan would be appreciated. However, we do not always travel with our caravan as we sometimes fly or drive to destinations.

My name is Sheila and I would love the opportunity to care for your home and your pets. I am 59, headed to 60 this year and settling into a new way of life and living. I am a semi-retired naturopath and work mostly from home as a writer and doing research as I am completing my Masters.

I love hanging out with your pets. I take great pride in caring for whatever space I am living in. I have always had my own home and now that my children have left I am now taking the opportunity to travel, meet new people and spend time with their lovely pets. I have a police check and references which I can forward.

I am happy to be vegetarian or vegan in your home and I am very mindful of caring for your home as if it were my own. I like to leave as small a footprint as possible wherever I go and I enjoy watering pot plants and caring for the garden and vegie plot. I have had a few sits with chickens and the benefits of their wonderful eggs is a new joy for me.

I have lots of available time to be with your animals, take them for walks and just generally hang out. If they sleep on the bed with you then they can sleep on the bed with me, if they snuggle on the lounge at night then they can snuggle on the lounge with me. If they don't then they don't. I look to maintian the usual routine of love, care, spoiling and discipline as much as possible

If I commit to your house sit then I am committed regardless of what may pop up later. I believe that peace of mind is so important for house and pet owners as they plan holidays and big trips away. I appreciate the trust that lies between the house owner and house sitter, it is one of the main reasons I do house sitting.

I have been house sitting now for two years and have done everything from Great Danes to kittens across Australia. I have also done a few house sites in Ireland and hope to do more international sits in the next few years.

Currently I am focused on Brisbane and surrounding suburbs and I am enjoying getting to know the different suburbs and sights of this really relaxed and wonderful city.

I do like to meet you before hand and your pets to make sure that everyone is compatible and happy. I also love stepping into homes with long detailed instruction manuals on how to do everything. Most importantly I need contact details of your vet, how to care for your pet and an emergency contact should I need some back up.

I am mature, responsible, energetic and kind, I love walking, yoga and swimming. I feel confident and competent in dealing with the care of your home and pets and do not hesitate to contact you or the emergency contact if there is anything out of the ordinary.

I hope you will consider me for your house sit and I look forward to hearing from you.

PS I have a good sense of humour check out my photos

  • Melbourne, Perth


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

I am a fit and active, non smoking, single lady in my early 60s who retired a few years ago after working for 38 years as a high school English teacher. Since then, I have travelled extensively and worked as a casual teacher. I have previously owned 4 houses in Sydney and a holiday house on the NSW south coast. Three years ago I sold my Bondi home to live in my holiday house. However, I have now decided to return to Sydney and to would love the opportunity to do some house sitting while I am waiting to purchase a property. I have always taken great pride in decorating and caring for my home, as is evident in the attached photos of my most recent house.

What I have to offer:
Responsibility, honesty, and reliability - my long and successful career as a teacher and Head Teacher, are evidence of my reliability and sense of responsibility. A clear Police Check dated 19 September 2016 is attached.
Excellent housekeeping skills - people often compliment me on the tidiness and cleanliness of my home and my well kept gardens.
Genuine love of animals - for most of my life I have had a pet cat or dog (and sometimes both!). Our pets have always been greatly loved and treated as members of the family. I have bonded quickly with each of the pets I have minded when house sitting, given them lots of attention and love and have been very sad to leave them!
Extensive house sitting experience - I have done 2 house sits in Sydney, each for approximately 4 weeks, and 5 sits of 1- 2 weeks each in Melbourne. All of the owners were extremely happy with the way I cared for their home and pet, gave me very positive references and invited me to house sit again for them. I am sure I would be a great housesitter for you.


  • Perth


My name is Laney and I am 31. I have just recently finished my work in hospitality down south and have also finished up in my lease down there as well. I am now located in the northern suburbs of perth.

I am looking at house sitting for about 6months as I would like to study yoga and become a qualified teacher. My lifestyle is quiet and I really enjoy my down time relaxing.

I am very respectful of other people’s property and understand the responsibilities of caring for a home and animals as I have done so for not only my own rentals but also for others in the past with various house sits.

I have a love for all animals but have grown up with cats and absolutely adore them. I have a caring nature, I am clean and tidy, trust worthy and a non-smoker who would look after your home very well.

I have my police clearance as well as references if you need to contact them. I am free from the 12th of December and I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards



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

Over the past 4 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

Fiona & Marc

  • Darwin, Central, Northern QLD, Western QLD

We are a retired, married couple who love travelling Australia in our caravan with our NZ Collie dog, Illy.

We own our home in Deception Bay, Queensland, having moved from Tasmania in 2017 where we owned a house on a large block in a semi-rural area. We are well versed in what is required of house/pet sitters as we had housesitters in our home in Tassie when we went on our trips.

We are responsible, non smokers and pet lovers. Between us we have owned and/or cared for large and small dogs, cats, sheep, horses and chooks. Our dog is a 13 year old girl, very quiet and gentle. She gets on well with people and animals and is used to living with poultry (we had backyard free-range chooks) and in close proximity to sheep and cattle. She is respectful of cats also.

We are both fit and able to carry out light gardening, lawnmowing etc. and we would care for your home and animals as we would our own.

This is our first venture into house-sitting so we don't have references from owners, however we could provide references from neighbours whose pets we have cared for when they were on vacation.


  • ACT, NSW, Alice Springs, Darwin, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

I currently live and work in Melbourne, living in a share household. I house sit as I also enjoy having time to myself. I also love caring for pets. Over the past years I have sat on many occasions with many homeowners asking me back to sit for them.

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

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

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

Gary & Joanne

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

and Melanie. Have a 9 year old Border Collie who won't be house sitting with us, so we know how to care for animals and would love care for yours. Our aim is to house sit while we downsize and try to buy a unit within Sydney. Although we have stayed in numerous houses of friends and family, house sitting through this website is new to us.

Our situation due to health reasons (Joanne currently on chemotherapy and Gary with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) with addition to Gary managing an online website means we tend to stay home. This may be particularly helpful for animals in need of extra care or company. As house sitters with experience your place will be looked after with the uttermost care, therefore kept neat & tidy with smoking not as issue (as we are all non-smokers). Over the years we have had the pleasure of owning a variety of animals including a cat, dog, mouse, fish, birds and ducks. Therefore we would gladly share the same care and love to our future house sitters pets.

Tanya & Rod

  • Tweed Coast, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast, Bundaberg & Wide Bay, Rockhampton

Please Note:
We are currently booked till 11th September 2018. Available for areas south of Mackay to Northern Brisbane suburbs from 11th-26th Sep & Gold coast 15th Oct -24th Oct, 10th-15th Nov as we work our back to the Tamborine area for Christmas

We are a married, healthy, retired couple, both non-smokers. Having sold our business we are now catching up on lost time to indulge in our love of travelling.
Prior to running our own business we were both long term Military personnel and then worked in the Corporate Sector.

We have travelled extensively around Australia & in parts of Europe and love the experience new places can offer.
When traveling overseas, we always tried to stay in places where the locals went for holidays rather than the tourist orientated areas.

We enjoy the experience of "living like a local" and welcome the opportunity to be involved in the day to day life, and discovering the beauty, of the local area which is far more rewarding than ticking all the boxes to say you have seen all the tourist spots. House sitting allows you time to slowly discover new places, meet people and enjoy the company of pets of all varieties, both large & small.

We are responsible people who have owned and rented properties, have previously maintained a pool and garden and are used to dealing with any issues that arise.
We are conscious of the care and security required to maintain a property.

We enjoy gardening and look forward to tending the different gardens that we are now not able to have ourselves.

We are experienced with animals having had numerous pets (large and small) over the years and know how to deal with both young & older ones. Most of our animals have been adopted from recuse homes/welfare.

Being retired gives us lots of time to look after your home, garden and pets.

We are able to provide references and Police clearances .


  • Melb. Inner suburbs

Hi I'm a friendly professional that loves dogs and cats. I'm renovating my place and need to find a place to stay during this time.

Happy to do garden maintenance as required and will keep your home clean and tidy. Most importantly I will treat your pet/s as my own and shower them with love.

I have never rented as I've always had my own home, but have some references of people that know me very well. I have a police and working with children check that I'm happy to forward to you.

Mark & Jennifer

  • Sydney, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, South Eastern, Central Coast (Qld), Northern QLD, Melb. Inner suburbs

We are a retired couple who spend a lot of time travelling both domestically and internationally. We also use our caravan around Tasmania. We live in a seaside suburb just south of Hobart and we have a 2 storey house with well maintained gardens and we are both very house proud. We have had dogs and birds in the past but due to our frequent travelling we don’t have any pets at the moment.
I worked with Tasmania Police for 27 years and can provide a Police clearance if required. Jenny worked with the Health Department for 22 years.
We welcome the opportunity to look after your house and pets if required.


  • Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. NW suburbs, Geelong

Hello, my name is Simon, I'm a single 48 year old professional, non smoker who is clean and tidy and house proud, inside and out.

I have house sat for friends and friends of theirs, which included, garden maintenance, looking after their pets and decorating / painting (they chose the colour/s).

I'm currently looking at house sitting for financial reasons (separated) and undecided where I want to reside permanently.

Would pay for utilities in your absence.

Excellent references are available on request.

Hope to hear from you.


  • VIC

Hi, my name is Michelle. I'm a quiet person, single and a non-smoker with no dependants. I like to meet friends for coffee or just hang at home. I enjoy writing music, reading, gardening and oddly I am house proud. I can tell the difference between your non-stick frypan and your ordinary frypan AND know the difference between glass and crystal AND the difference between a weed and a plant. Sounds silly, I know, but its the little things.

I have had pets all my life and love animals so if you have a pet/s, I have the energy and love to care for them no matter what their requirements are and I'll also let you know how its all going if you would like me to.

Everybody's home is different and if you have special requirements for your home I will happily take care of this. Rest assured your precious belongings will be respected and cared for.

I don't throw parties, or make a habit of having people come over at all hours. I am conscious that it is your home, I am a guest, and you wouldn't want anyone traipsing through.

I have a drivers licence and can provide an Australian Police Check and references if you would like.

It would be a real privilege to look after your home so please, drop me a line or call and I will be happy to answer any questions that you have.

My husband Peter & I have lived abroad in both the UK & the USA for many years and earlier in 2014 we returned to Australia to enjoy our retirement. Our professional lives were in marketing and luxury real estate. When my husband retired he started a pet walking and care business. This was very successful and great fun. Big dogs, little dogs, cats. We have enjoyed our six house and pet sits since returning, including one four month stint on a farm. We have looked after homes & pets in Mt.Eliza, Ashwood, Sandringham, South Yarra and Ballarat. I worked in luxury Real Estate very successfully for 20 years. We are non smokers, big pet lovers and protective of them. We are very tidy and very security conscious regarding our obligations to home owners and their possessions. We are happy to supply both personal & professional references.

Currently we are house sitting in Hawthorn till the end of January.
