Vardon & Alison


  • SE Vic, SW Vic

Hi,
We are Alison & Vardon and we will travelling Australia from mid 2018
so if we reply to your message we will be genuinely interested.
We will be travelling in our 8m motorhome with our two Jack Russell`s
Jeddah & Riley, we will be more than comfortable in our own rig,
however a reasonably level parking area and the ability to connect a power
lead & hose and access to laundry & bathroom is all we need, should you prefer us to stay in your house that will be just fine as well.
We will be leasing our home on the NSW Central Coast and understand the
anxiety of having the right people in your home whilst your away.
We are both in our mid 50`s and are active, love all animals and don`t have a
problem with caring for livestock if required, we are both keen gardeners if
some property maintenance is necessary.
I have been a self employed tradesman most of my working life & Alison has
been in office administration for a local business for the past 27 years and we
are now looking forward to "living the dream" and offer our assistance, so
rest assured the greatest of care will be given to your animals & property.
Police checks are available.
Kind Regards,
Vardon & Alison

Leah


  • Sydney, Central Coast

Professional working couple in mid 30's based in Sydney; we are Leah and Teague. We are both Australian, both born in Sydney.
He works tradie hours, she works office hours so we can walk, feed and spend time with your fur-babies in the mornings and in the evenings too.

We have been pet sitters for friends and family for many years, as well as regular puppy sitters for the local pet shop. We have pet-sat puppies, dogs, kittens, cats and rabbits. Teague has also studied agriculture and in doing so has experience caring for farm animals including sheep, calves, chooks and goats.

We aren't allowed to keep pets in our small unit so we have decided to spend some time house-sitting around Sydney whilst we figure out the best suburb to live in.

Both non-smokers, we like to walk in the evenings and spend quiet nights at home (yes we have definitely hit our 30's- no energy left for anything after a busy work day or week!)

Please feel free to ask us any questions.

I live in Collingwood and am interested in House Sitting as it would be a nice break from Flat Sharing occasionally and I am cat mad, so it would be lovely to look after a cat!

Karen & Russ


  • Alice Springs, Darwin, SA, VIC, WA

Hi, we are a semi retired couple in our late fifties taking some time out to travel this beautiful country of ours. Completing the lap in our caravan we are looking for opportunities to stop, park up and explore and housesitting provides an ideal way to do so.
We are experienced housesitters, are very trustworthy and dependable, we are both non smokers and only light social drinkers. 
As home owners we understand of the importance of looking after your house and we will treat your property and personal things as we would treat our own - with the utmost respect, keeping your property clean, tidy and secure, caring for it until your return home. We are also very happy to look after your lawn and garden whilst your house is in our care.
We are both animal lovers and will look after your pets in accordance with your directions and just like your house, we will treat your fur babies like they are our own. We have extensive experience with dogs, in particular greyhounds and up until starting our journey we were fostering rescues for GAP.
We are happy to send you updates and pics of your pets to show you they are happy, safe and well cared for.

Robyn


  • ACT, Southern Highlands, Murray & Riverina, Snowy MTS, Southern Tablelands, North Eastern

Hi, I am Robyn. I came to Canberra over a decade ago now for work and fell in love with the bush capital - its nature reserves and the incredible blue sky. I work full time and am studying permaculture and horticulture. I love being outdoors and working towards land regeneration. I grew up on a small property in rural Victoria with chooks and sheep and dogs. Our dogs have always been a major part of the family. I have also cared for cats, fish and a guinea pig in previous house sits, and have had some experience working with larger animals, including sheep and cows.

I am a non-smoker, and don't really drink. I try to get in a run or a walk everyday; even better with a dog for company, particularly in the face of a chilly Canberra winter morning! I love reading, learning, and doing things with my hands, whether it is sewing, or metal work or gardening. For me, housesitting is an opportunity to meet new people and pets, gain new experiences and perspectives. It also helps me towards my goal of buying piece of land where I can put my permaculture and horticulture knowledge into action.

I respect the privilege and responsibility that comes with housesitting and taking care of your pets, and want to feel that you can go away with peace of mind, knowing that they will be well looked after. Happy to provide referee details on request or answer questions you may have.

Alex

I am a genuine animal lover, that is happy to cater to your exact needs for your beloved pet. I am happiest in the company of cats, yet very content in the company of dogs also.





Graham & Kay


  • ACT, NSW, SA, TAS

My wife and I own and operate an online business, established almost 8 years ago. The majority of our customers are world wide. As a result, we are permanent travelers, but need to be in Australia to visit with grand kids and assorted family! We are animal lovers, and recently gave away 2 fabulous cats to a good home. (Normally our sons look after the cats, but they all recently left the family home in New Zealand!) We now have good experience in house sitting, we are very responsible people, and would treat your home as we would ours, and the animals and garden would be treated the same. My wife is extremely house proud, and loves to potter about in the garden . She is an extremely organised person and she looks after the house and me very well! Kays Dad was in the 2000 Queens Honors List in New Zealand (R. J. SHARP ONZM, For services to Dairying), because he invented the herringbone milking shed in New Zealand in 1952. Only took 48 years to get recognised. We can provide good personal references. We are non smokers. Broadband or good internet access would be needed.


Lynn & Ron


  • Sydney, South Coast, Adel. Inner suburbs, Adel. N.E suburbs, South

Hi All Home Owners

We commenced our wonderful house sitting experiences in June 2017 and have shared our days with many dogs, cats, chickens and goats (18 homes across QLD, NSW, ACT, Tas and SA in the last 12 months). Our properties have ranged from a small suburban unit to larger holdings up to 25 acres, and everything in between.

Our focus is to return the property as you leave it and ensure your pets well-being is a priority. We pride ourselves in making sure that their life continues as if you were still there. We are house proud non-smokers and very conscious of security and confidentiality, we see it as a privilege to spend time in your home with your animals.

We are based in country South Australia and now that we are retired, keen to do further travels in our own state in the short term. We have police checks and references available.

We look forward to hearing from you

Regards
Lynn and Ron

Samantha


  • Adelaide

I'm Sam, a single, young woman born and raised in Adelaide. An animal-lover, I grew up with cats and a large dog (Labrador X) so I'm used to pets that need lots of love and attention. I'm house-proud (and a bit of home body), I've had great experiences house sitting previously. Having recently graduated from university I work casual, flexible hours and can work around any pets' needs. References and police clearance available on request.

Terry & Amanda


  • Brisbane

Hello,
We are Kerry and Terry We are married ,retired and are in our late 50,s. We are reasonably experienced house sitters having looked after a house in Trafalgar 4 times probably 3 months in total, A house in yallourn nth for 2 weeks and a house in Trafalgar for 2 months. .House sitting gives us the opportunity to travel around and stay in other parts of Australia at the same time meeting new people,it also gives you the peace of mind to know your pets are in their normal environment and your house is being looked after. We are both non smokers, love animals and extremely trustworthy. We are very clean and tidy very good with looking after pets,houses and gardens. I once house sat for 3 weeks many years ago and the house and garden was better when the owners came home than when they left.
We live in south east Victoria and travel to the Gold Coast often. We have a caravan and within the next 2 years are going to do the big trip around Australia. We are both very active,excercise during the week and rock n roll dance at weekends. We live on a hobby farm and have had cows,sheep,goats birds fish and of course dogs and cats all our life. At present we have one adopted cat and an siberian husky which are looked after by other family members whilst we are house sitting .

SITTER TWO:
My Daughter is also a house sitter, 27 year old professional, not smoker and loves animals.

She is currently living on the Gold Coast but has just been offered a job in Brisbane's Southbank so house sitting is a great way to reduce the commute and ensure that your home and pets are safe whilst you are away.

She is very reliable and will follow any instructions you give to ensure your home and pets are happy and healthy and they are given lots of attention!

  • Sydney

I am a friendly and reliable house-sitter with extensive minding experience. Over the years I’ve had many great experiences having lived in some wonderful places, met great people, and become very fond of the animals I’ve cared for.

I am a quiet and considerate professional (and non-smoker), and am open to housesitting in a variety of places in Melbourne or near surrounds.

I will take good care of your home, animals and possessions. Housesitting referees and/or references are available to put you at ease as well as a current Criminal Record Check. And of course I’m happy to meet for an interview.

I'd love to hear from you!

Veronica


  • Melbourne

Hi, my name is Veronica, I am a 32-year old non-smoking female. I am originally from the UK, but am working at the University of Melbourne setting up Science Gallery Melbourne. I have house sat privately in Melbourne, London and Warsaw.

I am currently based in Brighton East but would like to get back in to house sitting as I really miss looking after sweet and adorable pets. Back home in London, I have a cat who I miss very dearly but luckily my Mum is taking care of her. I've grown up with cats, and dogs have always been a big part of my family. I really enjoy going for walks and walking is the best way to explore Melbourne so taking your dog for a walk will only be a pleasure. What I cherish and find fascinating about cats and dogs is that each pet has its own individual character and habits which results in different needs and requirements. Having lived in shared accommodation in the past, and also having the opportunity of taking care of someones house or flat in Melbourne, to which I sometimes still feel like a tourist, means that I would carry out domestic responsibilities as if the house was my own! I am quiet and respect neighbours.

Joseph


  • ACT, NSW, QLD

Hi
Im retired(well as retired as I can get) Im presently living in Thailand volunteer teaching english and organics.
I have to return to Australia for 2 years to make my pension portable and cant afford to live there paying rent while doing so, house sitting seems a good alternative.
I have never house sat before(unless house sitting for my wife, we have been separated for 4 years I sat for her in Sept while she went on a cruise and small trip in America).
I have had cats and dogs nearly all my life, even now in Thailand I have a couple of dogs in my Soi(street) who wait for me to comeback from my walk for a scratch and rub.
I have had many homes during my 66 years and have taken good care of them all, mine that I owned or rented while in the RAAF for 20 years.
I dont smoke and drink very little if at all(unless after a hard days work I may have a bottle). A tidy and clean person, the RAAF taught me these. I walk at least 5 klms each morning rain willing, I have been involved with sporting clubs most of my life and like watching local Rugby League when I can.
I cannot supply references at this time(unless my wife counts as she said she can supply me one), but will Im sure be able after my first house sit.

Susie Marie


  • Perth
  • Reduced Contact

Hello, my name is Susie and I am an Experienced & Professional Pet & Home Carer with over 5 years experience. I am from Perth, Western Australia and I have had the pleasure of caring for some amazing animals. One thing I really love about what I do is the opportunity to house sit for home owners on a regular basis and care for animals which I have grown very close to. I have now been caring for some pets, several times over many years.

I love Pet and Home Caring because I have the opportunity
to care for some of the most beautiful and loving animals.
It means so much to me to be able to create a secure, comforting and relaxed environment, that pets feel loved and nurtured in whilst their owners are away.

During my time as a Pet & Home Carer, I have also cared for some of the most beautiful homes. I have always maintained a high standard in regards to the cleanliness and maintenance of homes and ensuring home owners are welcomed home by their well loved and cared for pets.

I have experience in caring for a large variety of pets and have an understanding of the specific individual needs of animals, having cared for elderly dogs and cats, pets requiring medications and rescue pets.

I like to be able to discuss all of your pet and home requirements including your pets diet, medications & exercise, gardening requirements, the up keep of your home and any other additional requirements.

I can provide references from home owners I have previously house sat for along with an updated National Police Clearance check.

I am self employed as a Colour and Image Consultant/Makeup Artist and I help people to look and feel their best by advising them on what colours best enhance their natural skin tone for clothing, makeup and accessories and I absolutely love what I do.

Outside of work, my favourite things to do are exercise, spend time in nature, be in the company of animals, meditate and be with family and friends.
I am a vegetarian, neat and tidy and enjoy a quiet and healthy lifestyle.

I look forward to hearing from you and the opportunity to care for your loving pets and home.

With Kindness,

Susie @ divine paws.



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.
Thankyou.

Lauren


  • NSW

Hi I'm Lauren! I've moved over from England in June and I am keen to stay in Australia for a while as some of my family live here. I'm known as the 'sensible one' in my friendship group and I have a property of my own in England therefore I will take care of your home as if it were my own. I love animals and have taken good care of dogs, cats, rabbits and fish of my own in the past. I understand leaving your home and pets in someone else's hands is a big responsibility and I want to give full peace of mind that I will take good care of both your home and pets. I have completed several successful housesits so far in Melbourne looking after cats, dogs (greyhounds, cavoodles, pugs and spaniels) and plants/gardens.
I will be in Sydney from end of January and I thought house sitting would give me a realistic/authentic idea of the living situation around different suburbs, also helping you out to have a worry free trip away!
When I arrived in Australia, I stayed with a family friend; she is a very knowledgable vet nurse so if I have any issues or questions I always have her a phone call away to ask.
Please don't hesitate to contact me :)

  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore

Hello my name is Victoria, I am a Semi Retired 54 year old lady. I live in a Unit in Mosman and miss my home
that I lived in at Seaforth. All my darling pets are now in cat and dog heaven and we are not allowed pets in the unit where I live.

I have had a lot of experience in house sitting, lovely homes in Longueville, Seaforth, Mosman, Bellevue Hill, Rose Bay,
Point Piper and Kingsford. I am an extremely houseproud person, and keep an excellent household. I am a non smoker
and non drinker. Ex marathon runner, now a bushwalker/ medium runner.

I am fortunate that most animals like me and I feel the same about them. People have said " wow, minksie never comes to strangers and does that ? " I think I must have been a cat and a dog in past lives.

I am happy to give you any references upon request.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

Danielle


Hi! My name is Danielle, but most people call me Dani :)

Born and bred on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland and currently living in beautiful Melbourne. I'm 33 years old, I work in Finance part time and one of my biggest hobbies is pet sitting :)

Currently offering house and pet sitting services all over Melbourne!

I've been house and pet sitting for 7 years now and loved every moment of it. For me this is more of a lifestyle that allows me to quench my thirst to see new places and get my animal love fix whilst helping people feel comfortable and relaxed that their home and pets are in good hands while they're away.

I'm an animal and environment lover, with a massive soft spot for pooches and kitties. I am also more than capable of handling great big pooches! I'm short, but I'm strong and know how to handle the big kids! I'm very affectionate and patient with animals and I take great care in making sure they're well looked after. As an avid animals rights activist, I live a vegetarian lifestyle and I've worked with abused animals (Mostly cats and dogs as a foster parent for rescued abused animals) and understand special needs very well and am able to cater to those needs with understanding and knowledge. I am also able administer both oral and injection medicine.

I'm also capable of looking after a variety of farm and hobbie animals, ie: cows, chooks, ducks, sheep, goats, rodents, birds and reptiles as well as horses as I grew up on a cattle farm with my Grandparents and kept horses for leisure riding and my Grandparents kept generally around a dozen rescue racing greyhounds at any one time to re-home, as well as chickens, ducks, cows and goats.

I don't smoke, and very rarely drink the odd wine with a good bowl of pasta.

I'm not much of a party animal, nor do I go out very often. I'm more of a one on one kind of person who prefers dinner, relaxing music and wine with a close friend at home, rather then going out. I'm a bookworm, night-owl type, who prefers peace and quiet, over loud music and parties.

I treat other peoples homes like my own, with care and respect, and I have quite the green thumb for those who are concerned about their plants, having grown up on a farm you can imagine the size of our veggie patch!

I'm a complete neat and organisational freak, and try to minimise my environmental footprint where I can.

I've been told people feel very comfortable and relaxed around me, as I have a very authentic, open, accepting and compassionate personality. I'm a big believer in just treating people how you want to be treated and I know if I had a house sitter staying in my home, I'd want them to feel just as comfortable with me as I do with them.

I come with references from previous housemates and peoples homes and pets I've looked after. I also have a police check available and can provide copies of formal identification.

I live and work locally, so this isn't something I do because I have to, I just love animals and seeing different parts of Melbourne, there is always something amazing to discover here and earning the trust and love of pets makes me feel fuzzy on the inside!

As I have been house and pet sitting for quite a few years now, I have a handy checklist of important things to remember and go through so that you feel comfortable and reassured as a pet and home owner, that you're choosing the right person for the job. I am happy to provide the document, even if you feel I wouldn't suit and you just need a little guidance.

Feel free to email, text or call me at any time.

I look forward to speaking with you! :)
