Elizabeth & Michael

  • Sydney, Melbourne

We are English visitors to Australia, here until the end of April 2019 and seeking possible house sitting for approximately six weeks from mid-march to the end of April, preferably in or around Sydney.
We are retired professionals with a wide experience of home exchanging. We enjoy cooking very much! We are interested in the arts and enjoy the ambience of Sydney, having been there on several other occasions.
We’re happy to care for cats but unfortunately we are not active enough to walk dogs. And it follows from that, that at the moment we are not sporty, though normally we swim and cycle and walk!
We are non smokers and enjoy gardens, so will be happy to water plants, indoors and out.
We can supply references if required.

  • 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!

  • Sydney, Central Coast, South Coast, Central West Slopes, Far South West, Murray & Riverina, Snowy MTS, Southern Tablelands, Adelaide, Mid North, South, Northern Vic, SW Vic

We are a happily retired couple who love to travel. Our other interests are family, bushwalking, gardening, music. sport and movies.
We have been housesitting the last 2 years as a way of seeing areas new to us and have really enjoyed it.
It's also a good way to get a pet fix as we don't have our own at the moment as we are travelling so much.
We prefer stays of 1-3 weeks.


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

I am a full time retail manager based in Sydney. I've house sat for several friends over the past year & am now looking at doing it as an alternative to renting. I'm a tidy, reliable non smoker who exercises on a regular basis. My pet sitting experience includes dogs, cats, birds, fish & rats, some of which have needed daily medication. I will treat your pets & your home with the same care & respect that I would if they were my own. References available

Sabine & Rene

  • Adelaide


Thank you for stopping by on our profile!

We are a friendly, quiet, reliable, organised and non-smoking couple in our mid 40's with no children working as researchers in Adelaide and have been houseminding since mid 2015.

Through house minding, we have had the opportunity to mind and enjoy many loved pets and befriend their wonderful owners. Our experience includes small and big dogs, in- and outdoor cats, chooks/birds, fish, and a lizard. We have taken care of properties of various sizes. While you are away, we will ensure that your house and garden stay in good condition and most importantly that your pet(s) will be lovingly cared for with regular updates with photos.

Our preference goes out to arrangements of longer duration (ranging from between 6 weeks to several months) but are also open to house sits of somewhat shorter duration.

We are more than happy to meet you and your pet(s) in person and chat about how we can help you. Also, in case you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. References and endorsements from completed house sits, police checks, and character references are available.

We look forward to meeting you and exploring if we are a match for you and your pet(s)!

Best regards,
Rene and Sabine

Our business consisted of 10 cottages and 3 acres of grounds and garden which we maintained ourselves.

Wide interests including interior decorating, gardening, reading, music, natural history, bush walking, travel, and how life ticks in general! Since retiring, we are keen to see more of our great country and would love to come to your part of the world and would consider it a privilege to care for your home.

What we offer:
Lifelong experience with and love of all animals. We have always had a variety of pets as well as caring for the farm animals. Enjoy gardening and happy to care for your garden as well as pets. Experienced in general repairs and maintenance if the necessity arises.
Having always owned our own home (except for renting for 15 months following the sale of our business and whilst considering our options), we understand the importance of having someone trustworthy and reliable to care for and maintain and care for your home and pets. We have now been house sitting for over 6 years and looked after 50 homes and various animals.

Happy to provide references and Police clearance.


  • 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.

  • Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

Hello! My husband (tiler/future police officer) and I (florist) are moving from WA to Vic in July 2019 and are looking to house sit for a period of time to get a feel for the area. We are quiet country folk, very respectful, like to stay active, love animals, love gardening and are the proud fur-parents of two sweet fox terrier pups. We will be driving over so will have our own transport and have extensive family support in the Yarra/Dandenong Ranges area. We also have plenty of references who can testify to our ability to care for houses, pets and gardens, and the sociability of our own dogs, so you can rest assured your home and furry friends will be safe with us!


  • North Coast, VIC

I am happy to take care of your home, animals and plants, giving you peace of mind whilst you are away.
I own my own home so understand your requirements; having been both a home owner requiring a house/pet sitter and a house/pet/plant sitter, I know exactly what is required when caring for your home. I am a single woman, non-smoker/drinker, '50-ish' and work as a figurative ceramist in my own studio.
I love peace and quiet and enjoy my own company. I have lived in the country for several years, and coming from the coast, miss walking on the beach.
However, country/coast sitting is fine as I love to travel and explore new places.
I am houseproud and would consider it a privilege to care for your home, pets and garden.
Being a responsible, reliable and considerate person, I would take excellent care of your property .
My availability is flexible with both personal and professional references available on request.


  • Canberra, Sydney, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, Hobart, VIC

I am semi retired and would love the opportunity of looking after your pets, home and garden whilst you are away.
I am extremely fit and active for my age, and I am a non-smoker.
I would like to house sit as I enjoy discovering local communities and prefer to avoid hotels and busy resorts. I would rather find a relaxing place to retreat to.
I am a keen gardener and have a genuine love of animals. I have owned a number of cats over the years and my second language is now “CAT”. To be perfectly honest I’m not sure that I owned a cat really, perhaps it should be the other way round. Nevertheless it’s always been enjoyable.

I am highly reliable, considerate & respectful and will take excellent care of your home and pets.
Your home will be kept neat and tidy at all times, inside and out, and will be left in the same condition as you left it.
I would love to house and pet sit for you, and if you require any further information don't hesitate to contact me and I will be only to glad to assist you in any way I can.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

I am an and Educator and published children's Author since September 2015. (you can view my website at if interested) I was working full time as a teacher ( remote NT) these last 16 months till Easter which gave me time to completer the second book . Prior to that I lived on the Sunshine coast . From Easter 2019 I will return and run workshops for children on weekends and in the holidays whilst relief teaching. Reief teaching gives me more flexibility to work on the next book project, plus spend time with your animals too.
I am looking for a place to sit whilst writing some more and attending local markets on my way back up to the sunshine coast.
I have house sat before and as recent as September 2016 at Tanawha and October 2015 and then before in 2013 in Twin Waters.
I enjoy looking after animals and love spending time with them. I treat them as my own under the quidelines of each owner of course.
I am tidy neat and quiet. I enjoy the opportunity to practice yoga and became a qualified teacher in 2015 in Canada. I love bushwalking , reading about education and working on promoting the books I have published and writing draughts for future books. I am able to supply references if need so.
I have had a farm background as a child/teenager and have always had animals in my youth. My extensive travel as a teacher these last few years prevents me from having my own, so I would love the opportunity to look after yours.
I look forward to connecting if you feel I would be the right match. Any questions happy to chat.


  • Melbourne

I am 30 years old and have dedicated the last 9 years of my life to youth work, the last 6 of which have been in a remote community in QLD. I am now volunteering my time to support an artist from that community to pursue a management offer, needing to be based in Melbourne to do so. With my limited finances and love of animals house sitting has been the perfect option for me!
I have a strong passion for my work, music, animals, travel and meeting new people.
I have a lot of experience in house sitting with cats, dogs, chickens, sheep, horses, cows and even an alpaca. I am very neat and tidy and a non-smoker. I am also very happy to provide references upon request.


  • North Coast, Bris. S W suburbs, Bris. Southern suburbs, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

Looking after your home and pets for you is what I do best.

My fiends will tell you I am slightly OCD; I really just like things neat and tidy and in their place. This means you will get home and everything will be just as you left it. Maybe even a little cleaner.
A non smoker, and I gave up partying around 12 years ago.

I lead a quiet, clean lifestyle and treat your home as my own.

Having the company of your fur babies is an added bonus as I will have company for my daily walk.

I live in the Redlands and have been in the area for 9 years. I have been a business partner a photography studio for 6 years you will not find someone more reliable and trustworthy.
Working in office 3 days and flexibility to work from home.

I love to travel myself when I’m not caring for others homes.

I love a change of scenery and to experience a different space.

I have loads of experience , have done multiple sits for families (they welcome me back) and can provide references and am more than happy to meet in person and chat and find out what your needs are.

I have children, but they are not with me all the time.
I DO NOT apply to ADDS that request NO CHILDREN if i have my children the dates you have advertised.


  • Sydney, Central Coast, South Coast

In early August, I arrived back from the US, where I traveled for near 90 days around the US. Though travelling, I work from my laptop.

My aim is to house-sit whilst I save money for my next trip. No matter where I may be, I can continue to work.

For 2 and half years prior to my trip to the US, I was an Air BnB Host. As a Host I was validated as a Super Host for my over the top service and care that I gave the guests that stayed at my house. My house was neat, clean, tidy and very friendly, for this is the type of environment I like to live in.

My care of your house and your pets would be over the top. Whilst you are away, I know you would like to be stress free, knowing that the house is being cared for, as are your pets. No matter what kind of pet you have, I would take excellent care of it.

Since I started to house sit, I have traveled all over Sydney, as well as up the coast and down the coast. I have looked after cats, dogs, fish and birds. I have to be honest and tell you, I fall in love with all the animals. I thoroughly enjoy my time with your pets.

I have even minded a pet dragon lizard!

I am a mature, divorced woman, a non-smoker, who loves to meet other people. References are available upon request.

Janine & Chris

  • Brisbane, Hobart

Hello. My husband and I are mid 50's. All 3 of our children now live in Brisbane (for the weather) 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 and pets.


  • Adelaide

Hello, I'm a female pensioner .... an experienced sitter, though more recently had humans to care for! so now have excellent rental reference if required.


  • 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.

  • Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

Hi, this is Graeme & Elsha, we have just retired and are ready to travel around and see our country. We both like the beach, walks, Graeme his fishing and I like gardening & shopping. We use to have a cat (Asti) but she has passed away of old age and we have also had chooks. We are fur sitting my daughter's dog at the moment.
We own our own home and are very house proud and we would look after yours like we do ours. We are both non smokers.
As we will be travelling around in our caravan it is not convenient to have more pets, so we can love your pets for you while you are away.
We have been house sitting in NZ over Xmas n New Year period and acquired good references.

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

Hi, I'm Sharon. I am a non-smoking, single woman in her 40's who lives a quiet lifestyle, is responsible, clean and tidy and likes things in their place.

I'm a very experienced petsitter, having done this on an ongoing basis for several years now. The owners have been pleased with my care of their loved pets and their homes, and I have had a number of repeat customers, and referrals through them.

My experience includes pets with special needs, such as health and anxiety issues, medications required, or special behavioural issues.

Because I do this on an ongoing basis, I try to book myself up as much as possible in advance, and I have never cancelled a sit, which I have heard has happened to other people.

Having been a home owner myself, I know the importance of looking after a property, and as a past tenant my landlords wished to renew my lease. I have a police check and references too.

I'm really missing some pet company and am ready to own another dog but am not in a position to commit to one until I know I am settled somewhere. In the meantime, I would love to care for somebody else's pets and look after their home.

If you would like more information and think I sound like a good fit for your home and loved pets, please be in contact.
