She came over wrote notes on what was needed to be done. She was keen on looking after the reptiles as well as my cats. When I came home the house was spotless, fresh sheets, made bed, and bath towels waiting for me in bathroom. Bins were emptied and animals all fed and happy. She was easily contactable and offered to send me updates if needed. Emma also took care of my plants out the back. Highly recommended, trustworthy and very clean neat and tidy. " Brenna, Aveley, WA. "Emma was great and very diligent. Very happy to endorse her." Oliver, Perth, WA, January 2018"We had Emma look after our house and 6 year old French Bulldog and we came back to a very tidy house and a happy, well looked after dog. Emma was great with keeping in contact for the time we were away and letting us know that everything was going well. She did a fantastic job and we would definitely recommend her if you are looking for a friendly, reliable house sitter who will take great care of your home and pets." Tim South Fremantle WA. "I am very grateful to Emma for minding my home. Emma looked after my 2 bedroom second story apartment whilst I was overseas for over 3 weeks. During that time, Emma took care of my beloved plants, which were thriving when I returned home. I received regular communication from Emma when it was necessary, sending photos of my important mail, so I could problem solve whilst I was away, which gave me piece of mind. My home was spotlessly clean and tidy when I arrived home, especially the kitchen and living area, and it was very well cared for by Emma. I would certainly welcome Emma into my home again, and highly recommend her as a house (and plant) sitter." Helen , Yokine, WA. "Emma was great, really organized and sent us a pre- sitting questionnaire to make sure we had let her know everything so she didn't have to disturb us while we were away. We came back to a spotless home ad a very happy dog. We would be delighted for Emma to look after the house and Ebony again." Neil & Jean-Claude, Rozelle, NSW. "While away on holiday Emma house sat my home. She took wonderful care of my home and pets. Max my then ailing dog which I was really worried about as he was in his last days was taken care of and given his medications. I came home to a perfectly tidy house and was really relieved she was there to take care of Max and take such good care of him in his state and Jasper my cat." Annette , Leederville, WA.

Hello!My husband Jordan and I are moving from New Zealand to Sydney for 6 months (Mid- June-December) for his work, which will be based in North Sydney. We have a 4 year old Cavoodle named Tio, who will unfortunately be staying in NZ, and we love animals, so we thought that house sitting would be a great opportunity to be able to interact with pets and explore local neighbourhoods!I will be working remotely while we are in Sydney, so am very flexible and available to be home during the day for walks, cuddles and attention.We are very tidy, reliable, and house-proud; we would look after your house (and/or pets) with as much love as we would our own. We have experience with pets of all sizes and ages, and have both house sat previously. Please feel free to let us know if you have any queries, or would like references.
I have been living in Australia for 18 months and for the first 12 months I was house-sitting in Cranbourne, where I also had two dwelling cats. I also recently house-sat an apartment in Melbourne CBD, where I looked after a Maltese shih tzu. I have rented out my place back in NZ and I know how vital it is to have someone who will live in it and love it like their home, not just a way of means. I am a non-smoker, mid 40s, have two labradoodles back home and currently working casually. I enjoy my own company and getting outdoors to explore what this country has to offer. I live a healthy, clean and organised lifestyle, and I pride myself on being neat and tidy. I have a police clearance and I have excellent references. Call me any time for a chat, or happy to meet up, 04 230 14676

Hello, I am very keen to house sit in Sydney, a city which I've visited many times and which has much to offer. My daughter lives there too, so another reason for frequent visits. I recently stopped working as a university lecturer and currently I'm writing up a Phd at The University of Sydney. I am fastidious, tidy and would treat your home with care and respect. I have owned a black labrador and a chihuahua/terrier, very different in temperaments and personalities but equally lovable. I also like cats and I could cope with birds. I'm health, safety and security conscious as is my husband, Rob. We are vigilant about closing windows and locking doors when we go out. In our spare time we have many interests including walking, yoga, writing, reading and visiting France most years. We like to socialise but we're not party people, preferring quieter dinner parties. I'm a sophisticated, gracious person who treats people with respect and consideration, irrespective of their background or culture. I like to think that I'm non-judgmental. I would look after pets with care and also be diligent in watering plants, putting out rubbish and keeping the place immaculate so that the homeowner returns to the home he/she left behind. I would be the main housesitter but my husband, Rob, may join me for some or part assignments. In New Zealand police checking is different from Australia in that the individual cannot request a check on himself/herself but we have had police clearance in the past when hosting international students. I can supply references from people who have known us for a long time and know how we live.I'd be happy to answer any further questions. Thank you for your consideration.
Hi my name is Danielle and I am a single, mature ex country girl with loads of experience with a host of animals from ponies & piggies to parrots, peacocks, alpacas, chickens and many more. Nothing is too much trouble especially elderly dogs and cats who are my specialty as they definitely do need that extra attention. I know how precious these senior citizens are as my beloved "moose dog" lived just past his 17th birthday and I always hated leaving him during his last few years but I was lucky enough to have a gem of a carer whom I trusted to look after him when I had to leave him for the odd week every now and then.I can administer medications, tend to grooming and dietary requirements...whatever is needed to ensure your babies are perfectly looked after whilst you are away.I am exceptionally fit (non smoker) & will see to it they get all the exercise they may currently get and in addition there will be bucket loads of cuddles and then some, as we all know too many cuddles are never enough!I have 2 green thumbs and have a good knowledge of plants so if you are a plant lover like me you can relax knowing that they will be as robust on your return as when you left.I am a meticulous house keeper & would look after your home as if it were my own. All of my previous house sitters will attest to this and I can supply excellent references from all of my house sitting clients as well as having a current police clearance. It is always good to get a feel for someone to see if they are a good fit with you & your pets and I am happy to have a one on one with you so you can see if I am what you are looking for in a house sitter......Danielle

We have been house sitting full time for three years and have looked after many beautiful animals. We love our temporary pets very much and also really enjoy looking after lovely homes, leaving them sparkling clean and tidy after every sit. Naturally we can provide references from many very happy home and pet owners. We are fit and active so animals will be exercised well and homes and gardens kept in top shape during our stay. We are very clean and tidy and you will be delighted with your home and garden when you return. Pool maintenance is not a problem either. We can bath pets and administer medication where required. Pets respond very well to our relaxed, loving approach and we adapt our manner to the individual personality of each animal. We look forward to meeting you and your pets to ensure we can meet your needs to the highest standard.Kind regardsDeb and GregPS We are currently actively seeking house sits of 4 weeks or more from mid Feb to mid May in Brisbane. Please feel free to contact us directly.
We are a married couple in our 40s, well house trained and non-smokers, quiet, and respectful. We recently returned to Sydney after many years living in Europe and thought that housesitting would be a great thing to do whilst we work out where we want to live and what life in Australia might look like. Tara is originally a Sydney girl, a creative director and professional artist, with a studio in Mosman. Theo is a lighting designer for international music events. He is a wonderful practical man, adept at fixing things. We are animal lovers, have had some experience house sitting and pet sitting. Tara is a great animal lover (it usually takes a long time for us to go for a walk as she stops and chats to every dog that we pass!) We are both very happy to be around all kinds of animals, and will give them plenty of attention! We also have green thumbs and are avid gardeners, happy to keep a garden maintained. We have a home with a garden in London that has been our pride and joy and we are conscientious plant waterers. We are both capable and practical, adept at looking after large and small homes and have experience in maintaining a pool.References are available.We welcome a get together over a cuppa so that we can meet and discuss.

Very willing to water plants, mow lawn etc. They are a retired couple in their 70s, still active and walk 4km every morning. They are very honest and reliable.They can email police checks.

My name is Michael Mathews. I have been house and pet minding since 2008I do have a web page which has many testimonials:www.perthhousesitters.com.auI am a mature male, single, very strong and healthy and very experienced with all types of animals.I am a non smoker, non drinker and have a current police clearance certificate. I am neat and tidy and take the house sitting commitment very seriously. An attitude of "she'll be OK mate" does not belong in the house sitting industry. I am meticulous and thorough and I always look upon myself as the "Occupational Health and Safety Officer" for your pets.The reason I got into pet minding was because I had been living with my partner for many years. She had 4 lovely pets. When we went our separate ways she took all her pets. I rented a unit and whenever I arrived home and opened the front door, I would experience a feeling of loneliness. There was just no life force, no energy...no pets to play with, no happiness, no laughter. It is not much fun watching TV without a cat on the couch and a dog at your feet. To get my daily "pet fix" I started house sitting and I can honestly say that the last few years have been the most joyful, blissful and rewarding years of my life.Over the past few years I have looked after hundreds of pets, including 26 Alpacas, big dogs like Rottys, little dogs like Chihuahuas, fast dogs like Huskies, asthmatic cats on ventolin pumps, ducks, fish ponds, chickens, bird aviaries, horses and elephants (only joking... but I would be happy to give it a go...imagine picking up their daily poo in a yellow poo bag!!!)I recently looked after a vets pets...3 cats, 2 dogs, 2 birds and 2 ferrets...they peed and pood everywhere but that is part of the job.I have looked after pets in the suburbs and on farms, even had to learn to drive a tractor to pick up all the Alpaca poo, and mow the grass with a drive on mower.
Hi. My name is Lian and I have been house sitting for around 3 years and truly love the experiences I have encountered through my ‘house sitting’ journey. I am a professional woman who works in the finance sector and absolutely love animals.I am single, a non smoker, with no children and fully aware that your pets and home are assets which need to be respected, so my aim is to look after your possessions as if they were my own. I travel with my beloved dog Gypsy who is truly a dog Whisperer. She will gladly become a companion to your beloved dog and play and entertain while you are away. Happiness for all assured! References can be provided.Contact me if you want to know more! Look forward to hearing from you
Hi, I’m a 46 year old professional, mother of two boys and previous owner of many and varied pets. I am currently on hiatus from fulltime parenting duties as my children live with their father in Canberra. I am looking to get a taste of various Sydney locations and a friend who housesits suggested this would be a great way to do it!I am a Sydney sider but haven’t lived here for a while as my ex-husband was an Army Officer so we travelled around the country and the world. I am a proud and well-respected public servant (Commonwealth Government) and hope that this would indicate to you that I am honest and responsible (naturally I think so).From a young age I‘ve enjoyed being around all sorts of family animals from dogs and cats to fish and chickens (they were not my favourite though). As an adult we had two beautiful dogs, the first was a kelpie cross cattle whose life was sadly cut short at three on the operating table. The second was a staffie cross kelpie who we adopted out to another family after being posted out of location with the Army. We adopted both dogs as puppies so understand the challenges associated with young dogs. Also, as you can tell from the breeds, I am accustomed to medium to large sized dogs with boundless energy and know how important daily walking is for them. But be it small or large, I just find dogs delightful. I am an avid walker and also have reasonable flexible work hours so can walk them in the morning and evening.More recently I was the proud ‘mummy’ of a gorgeous, silky black rabbit, ‘Philip’, for two years who is now enjoying his time with a colleague’s children. I don’t have any pictures of me with my pets because I was always the one taking the pictures (familiar story for any mum…). I recently housesat for Coco the cat, who generously allowed me to take a quick selfie (see uploads). She warmed to me in the end… She was your typical cat! Loved you one day and despised you the next. It’s ok, I still fed her and tried to cuddle her (within limits).My neighbours have two cats and I often look after them while they are away. Sometimes I help take them to the vet so I know how to comfort them and make them feel safe.In typical Virgo style, I am a neat, tidy and organised person and I will look after your house as if it was my own. I will leave it as I found it, possibly with a box of chocolates left behind… I have a partner; we do not live together but he may occasionally visit while I housesit.I am happy to have a chat over the phone or via email whenever you’d like. I have also uploaded two references.Talk soon,Olympia
Hi home owner, Steve and I are a mature aged couple who are non-smokers and don't have any children. We are very capable, trustworthy and reliable. Janet works from home and Steve is a Territory Manager and occasionally works from home .Several years ago we sat house for a couple who had 4 large dogs who needed to be walked twice a day. They asked us to sit their house and walk the dogs whenever they went away. Two of the dogs had to have medication which we administered. They also had special diets which the owner made up for them. We sat for this couple again when they went away as they said they could trust us and we had no problems with looking after their 4 dogs.We have also owned a couple of homes ourselves where we owned 2 dogs and a cat. We fully understand that a pro-active attitude toward home maintenance is essential. Steve is quite a handyman and practical. If there are minor repairs to be taken care of he is certainly capable. We would be happy to look after any type of property. We would care for your home as we did for ours (as we have owned 2 homes in the past) and have no problem in looking after your house, pets and garden.We would welcome the opportunity to come and see you and would like the opportunity to look after your home. pets and gardens etc. We are also totally flexible with our time for house sitting. Thank you for taking the time to look at our bio and hopefully we can connect with you soon.
Hi I am a single, mature female. This is a time of exploration for me, I work as a casual, agency, theatre nurse, a job that can take me all around Australia. My children are grown and I am free to enjoy different places and people. I have always had animals and love nothing more than the unconditional love they bring to life. I am vegetarian, I neither smoke nor drink and I have practiced and taught yoga and meditation for the past 30 years. I look forward to the opportunity to house sit for you,Jan

Both non-smokers, bringing only ourselves (no children or pets of our own) to your home and with our own small car (and no caravan).We have experience with kittens, cats, cats with medical conditions and disabilities, little dogs, big dogs, fish and chickens and a little experience with birds, horses and rabbits.

Happy to move around the area helping out looking after the house security and of course your pets.
About me:I'm a 26 year-old Melbourne local, born and raised in the Eastern suburbs (Mitcham area). I completed my Master of Environment (Public Health) mid-2016, and then spent a year living oversees. I am currently working as a tour guide as well as doing other temp work, generally in the C.B.D and inner-city suburbs. I'm looking for the right position to jump into full-time work routine. I'm currently in a long-distance relationshipHobbies and interests:I love photography and I often take my camera out on weekends and days off. I enjoy hiking and most other outdoors activities, and I enjoy trying new restaurants and cafes in the city. I read a lot and I enjoy watching moviesMy social life:I enjoy having a busy social life, but I've been house-sitting and living in share-houses for years, so I prefer to go out rather than host. Having said that, I'm not a party animal - I enjoy going out for dinners or various activities with friends and family, but I'm not the type to be out until 3am every weekendRelevant experience:I have house sat numerous times for family, I have lived in share-houses for years, and I have stayed in many strangers' homes through Air b'n' and Couchsurfing. I grew up with pets (cats, dogs, rabbits) and know how to look after animalsWhy I would like to stay in your home:I'm currently saving up for a wedding and an overseas move, so hoping to save some money and not be a burden on family and friends. I like the opportunity to move around and get to know different areas of the city. Every neighbourhood has something unique to offer, and I want to find out what it is. I also love the community aspect of house-sitting, and I love the opportunity to spend time with pets, which I don't get all that often.Why I am a good candidate to stay in you home:I'm responsible, reliable, and I genuinely care about you, your home and your animals. Having had strangers stay in my own home, I understand how comforting it can be to have someone you can trust looking after you home.

We are a young professional couple who have been living in Chadstone for 3+ years and are looking to move closer to the CBD in the near future. We are hoping to explore different areas of the city before we decide on our new home. We are both non-smoking, tidy and clean. Jack likes music and cycling, and Sylvia enjoys yoga, synchronised swimming, and volunteering at Girl Guides. Sylvia has grown up with two boisterous boxer dogs, and also has experience with caring for family's pets, including cage training for a Schnauzer and a more free-range approach to an excitable rescue dog, as well as caring for indoor and outdoor cats. We both love the company of animals although our current apartment is too small to accommodate them. Sylvia is a nurse and Jack works in financial services, which both require police checks.We are both friendly and approachable, and more than happy to have a chat. Please contact us with any questions you might have.We look forward to meeting you and assisting with your house sitting needs!Kindest Regards,Sylvia Rose and Jack
Based in Brisbane, we are not permanently employed at present so can dedicate our time to maintaining your home and pets and even farm while exploring neighbourhoods and new areas. We consider ourselves meticulously neat and tidy, are non smokers and have our own transport. Cat sitting is not a preference, because of allergies.
