  • Melbourne

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.

Honest, experienced and respectful house sitter who looks forward to caring for your kitties ^-^

Hello! My name is Heidi. I am a single, quiet, non-smoker who often prefers the company of felines more so than humans :).

I'm well traveled, 36 yrs old and about to start a PhD.
Grew up with cats in the family household (including Tyson, who lived to the ripe age of 20), so I'm well versed in the cat world. I have looked after kittens, rescue cats, a deaf cat, cats with dietary restrictions and medication needs.

I want you to feel totally at ease and will follow any instructions or household routines to a T. Clean and tidy, I will treat your home with utter respect . I will mostly be working from home and can offer your cat/s all the love and attention they deserve while you are away. I am happy to stay in contact throughout so you can rest assured your pet/s and home are well cared for.

Good with house plants, veggie patches and the like. Able to water and tend to your garden.

Michael & Susan

  • Brisbane

Hi, Michael here,

I live on the beautiful Gold Coast but in the coming months I need to be in bne a fair bit for work so looking for house sits so I can spend blocks of time living there. I do real estate photography (indoor, outdoor & drone) on a casual basis and Uber driving.

We own our home (on a large block with pool) so very used to looking after a property. Pretty much had pets my whole life too and we currently have a 16 year old cattle dog, Ellie (with some blue heeler in her) and a 4 year old ginger cat, Ninja. Please note though that I won't be traveling with them (as much as Ellie would love to come!) as my wife will be staying home due to her own work commitments.

I love pets and especially how they are always so excited to see you when you get home. No matter what kind of day you've had they always get your attention and cheer you up when you walk in the door!!

Just to update (3rd May 2018), I'm currently in my 23rd house sit since June 2016, the first was looking after 2 loving, mad, boisterous dogs in Wellington Point, a gorgeous tortoise shell cat in Coorparoo (3 times), 2 excitable dogs in Fitzgibbon, an elderly cat in Wilston (twice), 2 affectionate cats in Ferny Hills (9 times!!),2 cats, again in Ferny Hills, 2 cats in Kelvin Grove and a very cute Cavoodle in Wellington point!. Happy to put you in touch with any of the above for references (not all were booked through this site).

My main profile pic by the way is with Angus (Coorparoo house sit April/May 2018), a beautiful German short haired pointer and one of the most loving dogs ever, he just can't seem to get enough human contact!!

At 59 I'm what is referred to as a "mature gentleman" although my mates would argue I'm neither mature nor a gentleman....hahaha. I'm very well house trained, a non smoker and love pets, so, you know, probably the perfect house sitter.....hahaha.

Happy to keep you up-to-date with some snaps via sms, messenger, whatsapp etc of how your pets are going while you're away, even the odd messenger/facetime chat too if you like!

I trust this is sufficient for now so please get in touch if you would like to chat further.

  • NSW, QLD

My life has always had animals of some description - horses, goats, dogs, cats, birds, and the odd calf, sheep etc. Still working full time but recently at a stage where the kids have either gone OS or have boyfriends so I now have time and holidays to myself. Time to explore Australia and what better way than house sitting! I am very capable around the house/farm - understand machinery, can drive tractors, mowers etc. I love walking so dogs are a must. I have no animals with me as the kids have kept them, but horses live on the property I have recently moved out of although I still have full access. There are retired and happy. I am clean living, non smoking, happy to look after almost any animals, anywhere. I am heavily involved in Equestrian sports but also love the water, and the bush.


  • Melbourne, Macedon Ranges, Geelong, Grampians, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

My partner and I are both retired and live in North East Victoria. We have both of us cared for and loved many dogs, birds,cats of our own over many years and have come to a stage in our lives where it would not be fair to get another pet permanently, but as we both enjoy being with animals, caring for them so their owners can be away without feeling stressed about leaving them, it will be a two way benefit! We are planning to do as much travelling with our caravan as we can fit in between house sits in the coming year. I prefer to live in a clean and tidy home and would treat your home in like manner. Please make contact if you would like any further information, or if you think we would suit your needs.

Cheers for now Jan and Chris

  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

Hi, we’re Peta & Izzy
Melbourne house & pet sitters – we are there when you can’t be ?Providing full-time extra loving care for your pets, home & garden.
We have looked after many many houses & wonderful pets over the last 2 years. We have excellent references for your peace of mind plus current National Police Checks.
We're a couple in our 40s, happily together for 19 years. We are experienced in keeping pets happy and homes beautiful. Up until 2 years ago we were living overseas and when we returned to Melbourne our home was rented & everyone around us kept asking us to house & pet sit for them so we decided it suited us as we love animals and love to experience new areas.
We have had the pleasure of our own fur babies that were our children, a lab cross & a burmese cat. Now we don't have any pets or children, we give our love to all the fur babies we look after and it truly makes us happy and gives us so much joy. I (Peta) run my own business in promotional marketing and work mostly from home. So I am there to care for your pets and give them the attention and love they need. The daily walk or run with your dog is a priority!

Feel free to get in touch with us anytime – we'd love to meet you and your pets and chat about your house & pet sitting requirements.

Additional information is available upon request.


I am in my mid twenties and enjoy house sitting and love animals. I have mainly looked after dogs but am equally happy around all animals. I like to keep tidy, am a non smoker and respect other peoples belongings. I enjoy watching movies, playing computer games, arts and crafts, photography and spending time with my friends.

I graduated from Uni studying media design and psychology and have a part time job of 6 hours a day, Monday to Friday. I live with my parents in the south eastern suburbs (Aspendale) and grew up with pets (a cat, two dogs and many birds and fish). I have been looking after people's pets since I was a young teen and have always been very comfortable around all animals.

I am always happy to meet both you and your pets before you leave. This means that your pets can be formally introduced to me to ensure they don't feel threatened or abandoned. As pets require a little extra amount of responsibility, I do ask for a small amount of 'pocket money' however I am happy to negotiate for long stays and adjust to your pets needs.

House only - Free
Cats - $15-$20 a day
Small or non active dogs - $20-25 a day
Large and active dogs - $25-$30 a day
Multiple animals - I may add $5

I do not have a current police check certificate but have a working with childrens card.

If you're after a responsible, reliable, clean and trustworthy couple, with their dog in tow (an equally friendly and easy going schnoodle called Reuben who loves all animals); to look after your home, pets and garden; then we'd be honoured to do so! After having spent the last couple of years living in Gippsland, running a large country hotel, we'd relish the opportunity to assist as caretakers, for a smaller venture like your home - with pride and care - whilst we work out where in Melbourne we'd like to live. Professional, active non-smokers who love animals, gardening, exercise and having 'down time', why not give us a call and we can see how we all get along!?

Suzanne Angelique

  • Sydney

Hello, I am a 57 year single woman, retired business owner. (non smoker, non drinker)

I took care of several homes and pets. I have had cats since I was a little kid. So your pets are like your children, I do know the feeling. You like to leave your pet knowing that they are safe and taken care of. I have taken care of animals of my own as well as of others. (cats, dogs, birds) Animals have always been my passion, as you can see in the photo's (even the exotic ones). Love to cuddle and play with animals.

I did a few housesittings for a couple (2017 and 2018) in Sydney, taking care of their Beagle, cat and budgie. (walking and feeding, playing, grooming), (reference available)

I take my responsibilities very serious. I am a trustworthy, quiet and relaxed person, tidy and clean. Knows how to take action in stressful situations. Very security conscious. I don't go out at night. If you prefer, I stay in touch with you on a regular basis. (by phone or Skype etc.)

Besides taking care of the animals other tasks I do are taking care of the garden like mowing the lawn, watering the plants, cleaning the house, collecting the mail, taking out the bin. Your house will be the same as you left it.

If you prefer, I am happy to discuss the do's and don'ts so that everything goes the way you like it to go. Am I your next housesitter?

Love to hear from you.

Karen & Wayne

  • Syd. Southern suburbs, Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. NW suburbs

We are a semi-retired non-smoking couple from Tasmania with adult children on the mainland. We are experienced with and fond of cats.
We enjoy spending time with our young grandson and family in the inner North of Melbourne and younger son in SW Sydney.
We run our own accommodation business part-time in Tasmania and have high standards of home care and maintenance.
We welcome your further questions and are happy to provide a variety of references and police checks.
We are currently after a sit in late June/ July in Melbourne's Northern suburbs, and late July/August in Sydney. Flexible with dates.
We have also used Air B & B on frequent occasions and can supply references , including looking after animals.



About me:
I am an experienced house and pet sitter that enjoys taking care of pets and seeing new places. I enjoy the opportunity and friendships that house sitting brings. I don’t have my own pets so I really enjoy spending time with the animals while house sitting. I am a trustworthy, responsible, clean and non-smoking Australian male (37). I have a lot of house and pet sitting experience. I am reliable, practical, and easy to get along with. Your pets and home will be extremely well looked after by a capable person. I am a serious house sitter, one that does what they say they will do.

I am currently completing my post graduate studies in Psychology. I have dedicated my career to helping people get through hard times and become the best version of themselves. I am off campus so I study from home and this allows for additional time with the pets and keeping an eye on the house. This is part of why I have decided to do house sitting. The other reason is that I really enjoy it! I enjoy the variety of living in new places and meeting new and interesting people such as you! House sitting provides an enjoyable and adventurous lifestyle for me.
I have a current national police security check. In my work I have gained security clearances at the highest level that have allowed me to work at government sites such as ports, airports, government offices and defence sites which you need to have a clean record to obtain. I hope this indicates to you my trustworthiness. I have my own car and am independent in my style of living.

Pets I have looked after:
I go above and beyond with pet care. I love all types of animals and have looked after almost everything you could find in a backyard. This includes mostly dogs, cats and budgies, but also parrots, stick-insects, lizards, snakes, horses, chickens, ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs, hermit crabs and even a tarantula! I do my best to not disrupt your pet’s routines so I feed them and walk them as close as possible to the same time that you do. I am happy to spend extra time with needy animals that get upset when their owners are away. I always make sure all pets eat enough each day. I also can administer medicines, worming tablets if need be. Any special dietary requirements are catered for and an extra walk or games no problem at all. In the case of an emergency, I will contact you and drive your pet immediately to your preferred vet.

I have looked after many rescue cats and understand they can sometimes need extra time and affection. From 2013-2015, I saved, reared and fostered 21 stray kittens at my house. They all were tamed, vaccinated, micro chipped, de-sexed and found happy homes!

Types of houses I have looked after:
I have experience looking after large multi storey homes with extensive gardens and pools, houses on acreage, normal size family homes and small apartments.

Extra things I can do:
If you like I am happy to send you email or text updates on the house and pets so that you know everything is ok and see how your furry friends are going.
Clean the pool if you have one.
Mow the lawn and water the gardens.
I will collect the mail every day and If you like I can forward you any important mail via email if you need me too.
Put out/bring in the garbage bins
Start car if needed to prevent battery going flat (please note I have my own car and would not drive yours).
I leave the house fully cleaned before you come back so that you arrive to a fresh tidy home. This includes the pool and gardens. I can also mow the lawn if you need it.
I can also pick up some groceries before you come home so you can take it easy when you arrive. Most people like to come home to fresh milk, bread and juice.

A quick note
I also prefer that we have a written agreement that outlines my duties with detailed instructions, vet contact, trusted person or family member contact (if you are overseas), authority to be in the house while your away (Id like it if the neighbours don’t think I am squatting in your house!) and any other things that may be needed to be carried out around the house.

I am happy to send you some references if you request.

If I sound like the type of house or pet sitter that you would like then please contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes

Conrad & Molly

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


We're Conrad and Molly. A young mature minded couple from Melbourne. We have been together for 7 years and married for 2. We enjoy eating out, travelling and going to the football. We are non drinkers and non smokers who enjoy keeping a very clean and tidy home.

Recently we came across the idea of house sitting and thought it would be a great opportunity for us to combine our love of animals and travelling.
Conrad grew up in Melbourne and was raised to have a strong respect and love for pets. We are regular donators to the Animal Protection Society Op Shops as well as our family cat Hugo the Russian Blue/Korat coming from the shelter in Keysborough as a kitten. Molly is originally from Saigon and grew up with pet dogs and cats since childhood.

House-sitting is the perfect opportunity for us to combine love of animals and travel as well as saving for our first home and life!

We have grown up around animals whether visits to the Keysborough shelter, Our first 2 cats Chloe and Polly, one of which lived to 19 years old. Our current family cat which lives at my Mum's house Hugo whom is a spoilt 10yo Russian Blue Australia Day Baby.

Experience History:
> Dec-Jan 2018: 2 dogs and a lizard
> Sep-Oct 2017: 1 British Blue
> August 2017: Two young 1.5yo cats Venus and Serena, one a short haired tabby and the other a long hair calico.
> July 2017: Two mixed breed dogs (in Photo)
> June 2017: Short hair tabby Mia (in Photo)
> I have house sitted in my teens for 3 weeks at a freinds home taking care of 2 Russian Blue Cats Phin and Casper.
> I have walked 2 neighbors Labradors Homer and Humphrey while growing up as well.
> I have fed and given company to a freinds bunny while away.
> Fed and kept company of neighbours of long hair cat Roxy while on holidays.
> Experienced with special needs animals as Hugo himself has an incurable hiatal hernia :( since he was 2 and cannot eat solid foods and all food needs to be blitz. : (

While your away we are happy for mow your lawns, vaccum your house, clean the bathroom, clean the pool whatever is needed will be our pleasure.


  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. Southern suburbs, Syd. Upper N Shore, Melb. Inner suburbs

After studying yoga for a few years I've been moving between retreat and meditation courses and work in Sydney.

House sitting gives me the flexibility to do this and I enjoy looking after pets and spending time in different neighbourhoods. It's been working out well.

I'm respectful and tidy, and pets tend to warm to me easily.

I grew up with a Jack Russell and have cared for many animals before. I had the honour of watching over two horses and ten chooks for a little while recently.

I like to get a good idea of your expectations and follow the pet's routine to keep everyone happy.

References and police check are available, please just ask. I'm new to this site though I have the following endorsements from another one:

"Alex was our very first Aussie House Sitter. From the very first meeting we felt comfortable that our fur baby would receive the love and care that we would give her. Not once while we were away did I ever feel like I should be worried. Upon our return, our apartment was left in the same condition as we left it. He also fixed our sink, which I thought was amazing. We HIGHLY recommend Alex and will use him again on our next travel."
BENJAMIN (North Sydney NSW, Jan 2018)
"We were very pleased with the condition of the house, garden and cat. We would certainly use him again."
HELEN (Pennant Hills NSW, Jul 2017 - 3 months)
"Alex was a fantastic housesitter - clean, respectful, helpful and I couldn't recommend him more! Even my cat warmed to him and she's pretty selective. Thanks again." ROBYN (Surry Hills NSW, Mar 2017)
"Alex was the best house sitter we've had so far. He was polite, considerate, very clean, tidy, intelligent, and very reliable. Recommend" GRANT (Forest Lodge NSW, Dec 2016)

Please ask anything you would like; We could do video-call or meet in person to discuss what you expect. Let me know how you are going and thanks for considering me.


  • Macedon Ranges, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd


I am an Insurance Professional currently working full time in Melbourne CBD. I love new experiences and travel and have really enjoyed using Airbnb (for which I have excellent references).

I own my own home in Balwyn North and have a 5 year old Ragdoll cat, named Cola.

I have previously minded people's homes/pets and enjoyed the experience.

I am fastidiously neat and tidy and have the greatest respect for other people's property.

I love all pets and have grown up around cats (Siamese and Ragdoll breeds) and dogs (Shetland Sheepdog, German Shepherd and Rhodesian Ridgeback breeds), birds (canaries, quails, budgerigars, doves), rabbits, guinea pigs and fish!

I enjoy short stays in different locations as I believe that "a change is as good as a holiday."

I hope to hear from you soon.

Best of luck! Gabrielle.


  • Adelaide

I'm an animal and pet lover after growing up with dogs, cats,fish and birds (sometimes not a good mix :-))

I also love keeping fit with swimming, walking, pilates and some yoga.

Other things I enjoy are gardening and being outdoors.

I don't smoke and like to keep a clean and tidy home.

References are available upon request.

I love meeting and helping people and want to make people relax in knowing that their pets and home are in very safe hands while they are away.

Let me know if I can help you.

Thank you

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, who love to travel. One reason why we think house sitting is a terrific idea is because of 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 would be excited to hear from any potential home and pet owners who are looking for heart centred and compassionate home and fury friend sitters!
Warm regards, Bailey and Casey.

Heather & Chris

  • South Coast

We are an enthusiastic, energetic, animal loving, home bodied, tidy couple who are saving for our own home. Currently living with our parents and have house sat for many family/friends and love having our own space and are available at short notice.
Both of us come from Scouting backgrounds, thus we are resourceful, hard working, respectful.
We look forward to caring for your home and furry/feathery loved ones.


  • Mackay & Whitsundays, Cairns, TAS


I am a for fun singer, pianist, and composer and writer living with my wife Jamie, a psychologist in Cygnet for a year. We recently purchased a lot in Beechford where we plan to build a home over the next year.

In the meantime, I would like to see more of Tasmania and possibly the mainland and thought it would be fun to housesit other's pets. I am an animal person and love cats and dogs. I've had Inca, a German Shepherd, Hunter, a German Shorthair pointer, and Tai and Chi, two Himalayans and grew up with lots of dogs.

Yesterday, we went on an art walk and one of the artists we visited had a rescue dog that had been abused. The artist told us, "she's very shy with men." After thirty seconds of scratching her chin, she was licking my face. I guess that's a pretty good canine endorsement. :)

I am quiet, a non-smoker and drinker, tidy and would prefer to housesit in country settings. I have always cared for rental homes as if they were my own.


  • Sydney, Central Coast

I'm Den, a 34 year old Sydney born/raised single male known for my sincerity and compassion, along with being open-minded, accepting and flexible. I speak English, Portuguese, Spanish and French. Currently a Remedial Massage Therapist, previously a Teacher and Disability Support Worker. I enjoy walking and exploring new and different places.
If it means anything, I am (according to the Myers-Briggs personality types) an ENFP, making me what is sometimes known as an introverted extrovert (extroverted with a strong introvert side).

An animal lover, I am house sitting an elderly cat again after recently house sitting two dogs and four cats. I had a dog for 14 years, as well as a canary and often interact with friends' pets (most recently cats). Having rented with housemates over the years, I like keeping my space peaceful and tidy. Being a Remedial Massage Therapist, I am more flexible than the conventional 9-5 Mon-Fri worker. Unlike some house sitters, when I commit to a house sit, I commit - unless unforeseen circumstances force me to cancel, I will not be dropping a house sit and have knocked back house sits which worked better for me out of respect for those I have committed to.
I will need off-street parking (even if simply a driveway) for my car as part of any house sit.

Along with several referees, I have National Police History and NSW Working With Children checks which are available on request.


  • Central Coast, Hunter Valley

I am a zoologist turned pilot training for an adventure to circumnavigate Australia in a microlight at the start of 2019 to raise awareness for shorebird conservation (

To help me afford to do this, I am looking for house-sitting jobs in the Lake Macquarie/Newcastle area while I train and work with AirBorne microlights and hang gliders at Lake Macquarie airport and Redhead factory from Jan-Jul 2018.

I am a quiet person and a non-smoker. When at home I lead an exciting life of writing, reading, drawing and drinking cups of tea! I especially love birds and birdwatching.

I love animals but prefer to take care of cats.

I am an experienced house sitter and would be happy to provide references from past house sits and landlords in the Newcastle area and Perth, .

Thank you for taking the time to consider me as your house sitter. I look forward to hearing from you soon! :)
