Hannah


  • Melbourne, Geelong, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

I am a 27 year old looking for opportunities to house/pet sit in Melbourne (close to the CBD) from December 2018 as I have moved from the UK to spend a year working in Australia. Prior to starting a full time job I would really love to do some work experience/volunteer work but this is difficult to do whilst affording rent so the opportunity to house sit would make this possible.

I’m a big animal lover and hope to have my own pets when I can, so it would be great to look after any animals whilst house sitting. I am particularly good with dogs as I regularly dog sit my sisters cavalier king Charles and having a pet would really be a bonus for me. I love being outdoors too and gardening as well and would be happy to help with odd jobs.

Ideally I am seeking opportunities anywhere between 1- 3 weeks and I'd like to be close walking distance to public transport. My sister and her husband house sat at many locations around Melbourne in 2013 and highly recommended this experience to me. I’m a friendly, reliable, non smoker who is extremely house proud and I take great care in keeping my own home clean and tidy.

Please let me know if you have any queries or would like to meet me to see if I might be the right fit for your home and pets.

I hope you will consider me.

A caring house sitter

Judith: 67, Teacher/Lecturer

Hi I am a retired Educator, having taught students from Prep. to University level in NSW, Qld (city & remote) & the Torres Strait, NT remote area, Taiwan, China and Vanuatu. Therefore, I have current Police & Working with Children checks in a number of States. My upbringing, lifestyle & belief system have resulted in me being a: non- smoker, reliable, honest, hard working, friendly & viewing each new situation in life as an adventure waiting to be lived out, type of person. I regard others homes and property with great care as I am sure they would want me to treat them, their home, their pets etc. with respect and kindness.
Raised on a farm & enjoying most animals & gardening I find I can still do the work, but ... a little slower. In my spare time I like to swim, bike ride, organise my stamps & coins, take photographs & listen to music.
I have attended Universities/Colleges in NSW, Qld, Hong Kong, China & Taiwan, receiving degrees & certificates mainly in Education but with some in business & specific computer programmes. Much of my life has been teaching primary & high school students, teachers, Indigenous Australians & Chinese educators. Being able to speak Mandarin Chinese I have been enabled to teach in China as well as teach Mandarin in schools in Australia. As well as working in education, I have managed a small, business, worked with cattle, built fences & grown many vegetables.
From 2012 to 2018 I have lived in my Motorhome which has made working and house sitting in any state easy to attend. I began house sitting in 2016. At present (May - July 2018) I am farm sitting in Victoria. I will then move to Cairns (August - October 2018) to house sit, then Brisbane (November) These sits do not require me to use my Motorhome, it can be stored.
I enjoy longer house sits but am happy to do shorter ones of a few weeks or a month. City or country residences are fine.

A satisfied farm/home owner:
"Judith house and farm sat for me for approx 8 weeks, she looked after my goats and chooks, fed them twice a day, kept the yards clean to perfection, My home was kept in immaculate condition and Judith blended into the small community, she is a very friendly, warm women, If you want a house sitter who respects your pets and house as her own, I would highly recommend Judith and hope she will come again..."

jacci


  • Melbourne

Hello, I am a retired single female and have done 52 house/pet sits since June 2014 looking after a variety of cats & dogs, old and young, [some needing medication for diabetes, asthma and epilepsy] plus a pony, a mini-pig, a sheep, lizards, rabbits and birds. So I feel competent to look after all situations..[I was a registered nurse for the past 40+ years..] In the 4yrs I have been looking after peoples pets, there have been a couple of urgent health issues I have had to deal and they were easily fixed..with a quick visit to the vet.

I took up house/pet sitting after I sold my house in Yarraville, in mid 2014 and was waiting for an apartment in Carlton to be built...by the time it was completed, I had become hooked on pet sitting, so put a tenant in my apartment...and continue to enjoy a 'gypsy' lifestyle.

Several months each year I spend in Thailand, learning the language and doing volunteer work with the Dog & Cat Rescue Service. The conditions these poor creatures live in is heart breaking, and I find it both rewarding and upsetting..

By profession I was a Reg Nurse, so a Police Check was mandatory, and I have no criminal history. I run a clean and tidy home [ and can cope with basic gardening...lol..] I had my own much loved miniature Fox Terrier until she passed away in 2014 at 15yo. So now I am footloose and fancy-free, and able to travel and live wherever I choose, and can be more flexible as I have no ongoing commitments.

When I had my dog, I used to have sitters come in to look after her when I travelled, because I understand they are less stressed in their own environment, and its the best place for them. It also gives you [the owner] peace of mind that your home is also safe, and will be in good working order on your return.

I am also a Foster mum for pooches from the Lost Dogs Home in Nth Melb who are recovering after surgery, or senior dogs waiting for adoption.
Many excellent phone references available on request.

  • Brisbane, Sunshine Coast

Hi :) I am a single, 25 year old professional female. I have grown up in Samford around many domestic animals (cats, dogs, budgies, guinea pigs) as well as farm animals (horses, alpacas, chickens), so am an absolute animal lover! I worked in a cattery for 6 months so am familiar with difficult felines and am a keen walker so am willing to take your pooch on lots of adventures. I have owned acreage since 23 so am very comfortable with gardening, mowing, cleaning etc. I am looking for a fresh start and would love to look after your property while you have adventures of your own. Please contact me if you have any questions. References available on request :)

Kathryn


  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

I am a retired woman living on the Sunshine Coast. I love and care for all animals but have probably related more to cats. I have lived with cats as part of my family over many years. Although I do not currently live with a cat, I regularly care for my short- haired Oriental grandson, Louis and have recently successfully carried out a house/cat sit in Melbourne 2017/2018.

I have friends and family in Melbourne and strong links to Melbourne and like to visit several times each year.

I am a homeowner and very house proud and would care for your place and cats as if they were my own. I am a non smoker and live with a very high standard of cleanliness.

I will care for your cat/s first and foremost with lots of love and cuddles. Also collect mail, put out bins, water the garden and pots and keep your place secure.

Any further questions you need answered, do not hesitate to contact me. References available.

Kind regards,
Kathy

Lynsey & Geoff


Heading:
Leave home with peace of mind packed in your suitcase.

Introduction:
We are a couple in our mid 50s who have decided to step off the oil & gas industry treadmill and see what the rest of the world has to offer.

We are fit, active non-smokers, down to earth, reliable, practical and adaptable. We hail from the United Kingdom/New Zealand but are both now Australian citizens and have recently built a home in Fremantle, Perth. We like to spend our spare time bushwalking, chasing down those elusive relatives on our family trees and dining out. Geoff also enjoys keeping an eye on the Kiwi's beloved All Blacks.

We love most animals but cats would have to be our favourites, especially the big cats, not that we expect to be taking care of one of those!

Why We Like To House Sit:
We have quite recently retired and are fulfilling our dream of traveling worldwide, chasing the sun, with no fixed abode and no plan. Just let the house sitting take us where it leads us :-) We love having the opportunity to immerse into and really connect with whichever place/culture we might find ourselves in and feel that spending time as pseudo residents gives us that chance more so than being regular tourists might. It also gives us exposure to areas that would otherwise have gone untapped by us, areas that we might never have thought to visit.

In our more recent work life we have been living full time in company accommodation and this means, unfortunately, no pets. We always had cats in our lives up until then and house sitting, as opposed to hotel hopping, gives us the pleasure of connecting with some furry friends again....... nothing quite like curling up with a good book and a purring cat on your lap or watching them smile as you give them a good brushing.

And then there's the scope for meeting, and hopefully making friends with, people from all over the world, including the house owners that we sit for and people from within the communities we spend time in.

What We Bring To The Assignment:

Previous House Sitting Experience
We have completed several house sits in Australia, New Zealand, UK and Europe. Below are some of the glowing references we have received:

"What can I say except perfect! Lynsey & Geoff were the perfect house sitters. From the minute they arrived we felt totally at ease leaving our precious fur babies and our house in their hands. We found them to be very open, warm people and were very interesting to get to know. They exuded confidence and this is the perfect way to be as a house sitter as it left us feeling totally relaxed. Within a day or so of us arriving at our holiday destination we had received photos of our cats looking very relaxed which was great to see. We were updated multiple times during their stay and that was a real bonus. We let them use my husbands car when we were away (they arranged their own insurance) and it was returned clean and with petrol in the tank, Just as we knew they would to be honest. We arrived home to a lovely clean house, tales of the time they had spent with our moggies and Geoff had even cleaned our vacuum filters out! They really were great sitters and I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone that wants a very professional friendly couple to watch over their home and animals. Thank you Lynsey & Geoff for keeping our cats happy and our home safe :o)" Sept/Oct 2018 Doncaster, UK

"Lynsey and Geoff sat for us for just over three weeks in August 2018. They are a lovely couple who looked after our home and pussycat Scrabble extremely well. They used their initiative when Scrabble was unexpectedly prescribed some tablets and found a cat-friendly way of administering his medicine which was much appreciated by all concerned. They followed instructions regarding day to day tasks, left the house looking clean and tidy and purchased their own supplies of various items when they could easily have used ours. They also kept in touch with us while we were away concerning anything that we needed to know. We were delighted to have them as house and pet sitters and they come highly recommended." August 2018 Kings Langley, UK

"We were so fortunate to choose Geoff and Lynsey to care for our gorgeous rag doll cat, Oscar, and our home......I was a wreck initially leaving Oscar with anyone, but Geoff and Lynsey sent regular pics of our pampered pussycat and kept us in the loop with anything they weren't sure of....Coming home, our townhouse was in a pristine state, the pussycat was reluctant to have us even return to the house. We didn't recognise our ute we had loaned them, cleaned of all debri, and we were very happy Oscar was so well cared for. In fact we have rebooked this great couple again for 5 weeks in the near future. Thank you for being so great" Di & Nev January/February 2018 Perth Australia

"Geoff and Lynsey are the BEST house/pet sitters you could ever get. We went away for a month overseas and they came to look after our Jack Russell and house. As any pet owner will know it's always a bit of a worry to leave your pet to be cared for by someone else. But we didn't need to worry as they did an excellent job of taking care of our much loved pooch. They regularly sent photos of him and all the adventures they took him on. He had such a great time with them that he sulked for two days when they left. The house was in immaculate order and Geoff even washed my car for me. They are very kind and caring and responsible and I would not hesitate to recommend them as a house /pet sitters." Lyndal & Todd December 2017-January 2018 Auckland NZ

"Perfect sitters! Geoff and Lynsey have been house and pet sitting for us for the last 6 weeks. They have been fantastic, communicating with me regularly, both before and during the sit. Our Bearded Collie has been on wonderful long walks each day and her coat looks as though she's just stepped out of the groomers. The two cats, (not lap cats and very fussy who they take to), have been snuggling up contentedly to their 'foster parents', (lots of lovely photos). Geoff and Lynsey have left the house in an immaculate condition, (clean sheets on the bed), the garden has been tidied and the car returned sparkling and gleaming, (its not been like that since it was in the showroom)! My start date overlapped with their previous house sit and so Lynsey immediately offered to come alone, leaving Geoff to finish with their agreed commitment. They made a 4 hour return trip to come and visit, several weeks before they sat for us. They're a super couple, great fun, but serious when it comes to fulfilling their 'duties'. We'd love for them to sit for us again in the future. Geoff and Lynsey are totally trustworthy and reliable. If you choose them to sit for you, your home and pets will be in very safe hands. Thank you so much guys!" Lizzie & Mick September/October 2017 Reading UK

"Lynsey and Geoff were amazing house sitters. We have a small holding with lots of acreage, horses, sheep, dogs, chickens and also run a holiday business with a Yurt, Pod and Log Cabin on site. Geoff and Lynsey managed the lot, they were fantastic. The guests loved them and kept reviewing Geoff and Lynsey as being fantastic helpful hosts I can't thank them enough. The garden, orchard, guest and drive area was immaculate, Geoff must have spent hours strimming and mowing to make everywhere better than when we left. The Animals were really well cared for. Geoffs skills as a horseman was an added bonus because I could rest knowing my 5 horses would be very well cared for and Geoff would know what to do. Lynsey ensured everything else ran smoothly and her communication whilst we were away was excellent. They both showed a lot of initiative and dealt with problems effectively as and when they happened. We lent Geoff and Lynsey our car and they took good care of it cleaning it out and replacing a bald tyre. Nothing was too much trouble. Geoff was handy and fixed various things and Lynsey is a wizz with technology. We would have them back tomorrow. Thank you Geoff and Lynsey for all your hard work and for being such lovely people. I couldn't have trusted our home and holiday business with anyone else." Sally and Andy August/Sept 2017, Staffordshire, UK

"Lynsey and Geoff are truly wonderful pet/house sitters. They took the greatest of care of our sometimes feisty cat for two weeks and they were amazing. They kept us updated with photos and day to day happenings which is just what you want when you are away from your fur babies. As soon as we met them we knew they would be perfect. They are such a warm caring couple who made absolutely sure that Oscar was fine. We call them the' cat whisperers' as they were so good with him. When we returned our house was immaculate and puss cat so chilled out. We really wish that they lived in the UK, we would ask them back in a heartbeat. Fabulous fabulous couple. If you are looking for the perfect animal/housesitters Lynsey and Geoff are the ones for you." Sue & Phil June/July 2017, Gloucester, UK

"Thank you for the meticulous care you took of our home while we were away for five weeks on business and holidays. Also a big thank you from our two wonderful cats. They looked so healthy and happy on our return, a little overindulged but they weren’t complaining. I was looking forward to coming home and when walking in with you both I saw a house that was absolutely spotless both inside and out. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who needs a house sitter." Lyn & Elton, Australia

"Being new to housesitting we did have some reservations, but Lynsey & Geoff seemed like the right fit for our house and cat Coco. We met them before we left for 6 weeks away. We kept in contact via email while we were overseas and they sent us the odd photo of Coco so we could see she was happy being brushed. (Now she expects it every day!!)
Lynsey & Geoff took us to the airport and picked us up again. Also they left some supplies in the fridge so we didn't have go out for takeaway the evening of our return. Very thoughtful. They left the house cleaner than when we left which was great. And Geoff even dug the vegie patch over!!
We couldn't give them enough praise and would be happy to recommend them to a prospective house owner." Jo & Doug, Australia

Our Background
For the eleven years prior to retiring we had been running our own business providing logistics services to the oil & gas industry and had won contracts with many of the major players in Australia.

We specialised in running the onshore base for the duration of a company's drilling programme, where responding to urgent requests and finding solutions were the order of the day.
We worked together as a team; Geoff liaising closely with the drilling rig, supply vessels, third party suppliers, etc. to ensure everything ran efficiently and smoothly, whilst Lynsey managed the office keeping the lines of communication open to head office and controlling the computer / paperwork administration meticulously.

People often ask how we worked so closely together and comment that they could never do it with their partner, but we did so successfully, and with pleasure, for over a decade and found it only brought us closer together.

We had a hard won reputation in our work life as being the best in the business which resulted in us being constantly awarded contracts, even when times were pretty lean in the oil & gas industry.

This same level of harmonious team work, professionalism and care is what we will bring to looking after your family pets, house and garden, as it would be applied to any house sitting contract we were honoured enough to be granted.

Pet & Animal Experience
Geoff comes from a childhood on a farm and Lynsey's family home was invariably filled with cats and dogs.

As a couple we've always had cats in the house, whether they be rescue cats or strays that just wandered in looking for a better life.

And a better life is what we think they got; our last fella, CJ, would be demanding his brush each morning almost before his breakfast and this of course after a good night's sleep on his own couch at the end of our bed!

Home Care Experience
We have owned our own homes, ranging from double storey, four bedroomed suburbia to inner city apartments, as well as investment properties

We understand that your home is your castle and we will treat it accordingly.

We have used sitters ourselves and know how important it is to find caring, responsible people.

Garden Maintenance Experience
We wouldn't describe ourselves as "avid" gardeners but we have had homes with large gardens, one of which had 150 palms and flowering plants that we designed from scratch and maintained for 5 years before selling to move into the city for a change of pace.

We have also had homes with pools and are fully conversant with their maintenance needs.

You can be confident that your garden will be in safe hands during your absence.

My name is Mitch and I would love to look after your home. As someone who has been share housing for the past six years, I know how important it is to take care of a home and look after everything involved, from cooking to making sure junk mail doesn't overflow! I take pride in maintaining a clean house as I know how important a home is as a sanctuary. You can count on me to look after the cleanliness of your house!
I have lived all over Inner West Sydney, the Eastern Suburbs and Southwest Sydney and have cared for animals including dogs, cats birds and fish. I am an avid animal lover and know how important it is for animals to be looked after respectfully, especially when someone new comes to stay.

A little about me: I am a 28 year old, single male who works full time in Newtown for a Youth Cancer Charity. I am in my final year of my Psychology degree and I am also a yoga teacher and school presenter for an Eating Disorder Charity. I am a non-smoker and non-drinker who values quiet time and lots of tea :)
Having been the lease holder of all houses I have lived in, I know how to keep a home and ensure that it is looked after.
I have experience in house sitting for family friends and have recently been caring for a large house with a cat, dog, fish and birds.
The bottom line with me is that I care about the space I live in and I respect the space of others. I know that housesitting requires a mutual trust between owner and sitter and I would like to build that by meeting with you properly and sending updated pictures of your house, animals and plans whilst you're away :)

I am available to sit from the 29th of July. I look forward to hearing from you!

Mitch :)

Hello! I'm a 36 year old actor returning to Melbourne after touring Shakespeare in Auckland and Sydney. I'm a single non-smoker, and am looking to house sit whilst finding for my own place. I
enjoy a quiet, clean, healthy lifestyle, am house proud and enjoy gardening and maintaining a tidy home. As the son of a vet, I grew up with animals as part of the family and love looking after them. I have a police check, and have enjoyed house sitting for friends in the past. References available upon request.

Dear home owner,
I have enjoyed caring for people's homes and pets for several years.
During that time I have had the pleasure of maintaining landscaped gardens and lawns up to two acres in size.
( Ride-on mower preferred.)

I have experience in caring for a variety of pets and livestock.

Also, I am very experienced with pets that need extra care. EG medications or special care requirements.

Caring for your home and much loved pets is my number one priority.

I am clean and tidy and enjoy living a quiet lifestyle.

Housesitting gives me the opportunity to experience living in interesting and diverse communities.

It also allows me to indulge in my favourite activities, nature photography and bushwalking.

I have very good references and a police clearance check.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards
Michelle

I am a single, mature aged, non-smoking gentleman with experience in house and pet sitting.

As a recently retired school teacher, I am looking for an opportunity to extend myself and broaden my travelling experience by living in an area for longer than a fleeting visit as is usually the case when taking a holiday from work.
I enjoy gardening, reading, cooking, walking, and recently, craft creations.

Whilst not having my own pets these days, I have had the rather usual menagerie of a cat, dogs, fish, guinea pigs, white mice and chooks.

I have a reference and photos which are attached.
I look forward to be of assistance.

Regards

Richard

I am a freelance writer but work a full time job as an executive Assistant.

I have my son 2 weeks of every month.

I would really like somewhere that is low maintenance and happy to pay a small fee of rent.

We are both diligently clean and look after things well.

I can’t afford full rent and cannot share a rental with a son.

Best way to move forward is to meet with me if our criteria meet for the most part.

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.
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

  • Melbourne

Hi there! We're Nick and Anne, a couple from the Netherlands. We both recently graduated medical school and are currently traveling around Australia in a campervan and enjoying the freedom before we start working as a doctor in the Netherlands. We're big animal-lovers and both grew up with a lot of pets (dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, even goats) and we can't wait to take care of pets again. For the past 3 years we have been living together in an apartment and we really like to keep our house clean and tidy. We had a lot of plants that we enjoyed taking good care of. Your house and your furry friends will be in good hands!
Anne is really into photography and loves to take photos of your cute pet. So hopefully you'll end up with some great pictures of your pet as well (see photo).

Hello Home Owners!

This year I am focusing on house-sitting around the Toowoomba area; some areas in Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast, and the Gold Coast . Petrol costs too much to go further afield, unfortunately.

Being a pensioner, and a retired teacher,I decided House-Sitting was my only way of having a break/ holiday from home. I have done several successful years of pet and home-sitting ..all with dogs, cats, birds, fish , etc., and even a pet python. I am police-checked a few times over [ for volunteer work], and hold a current Blue Card. I carry a pet first aid kit in my car.

I am a keen gardener, and cook..you may find a meal in your fridge or freezer on your return.I am used also to looking after pools.

I am an inveterate animal-lover, with a rural back-ground. I do not smoke , and have the occasional Guinness. I don't throw wild parties.. nor even sedate dinner-parties, as meagre pensions don't run to that!!!! I bring my own mobile larder, laptop, printer, mobile internet modem for my emails , and mobile phone with unlimited calls, so I do not need much,apart from some space in the fridge and the freezer, and access to wifi for my web searches. I have my own transport..a battered Falcon wagon with three dog restraints in the back.

Currently, I do not have any pets of my own, as my beloved Westie, Cailan, passed away last year.
