My name is Lisa, I am 44, and looking to house sit for at least the next 12 months. I currently live in Melbourne and have been for the last 10 years, I am originally from Sydney. I am a non smoker, I am conscious of the care and security needed in keeping a house maintained. I have grown up with pets and taken care of cats and dogs and fish on other sits as well as my own pets. I believe that I would be able to take great care of yours. I am available for any length of house sitting and can provide both personal and professional references, as well as a police clearance. I am a responsible, reliable and considerate person, and would take excellent care of your property.

I have been house sitting now for almost 7 months full-time but - however in the past have house sat whilst still in my own apartment.

I love taking them for walks and they are well loved by me.
I know lots of great parks and ovals and have friends who have pets so they can socialise together.

The dog on my profile is Gus, the one that belongs to the family I work with, he's a Spoodle - such a great dog.

I am from Melbourne and I have a recent police clearance (November 2018) and even Working with Children Check (2019)

I know this can be a difficult decision for you and I can provide references for you if needed and also meet with you.

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

To Whom It May Concern
Dear Sir/Madam,
It is with great pleasure that I write this character reference for Diane Penney. Diane has cared for our much loved home, pets and garden on a number of occasions and at all times we have come home to an immaculate and well cared for home, pets and garden. We have a large garden, which can be a challenge to some, however Diane has maintained this much more than we could have imagined.
We are always very happy to go away on vacation when Diane is caring for our home.
I would highly recommend Diane Penney to any person requiring care for their home, pets and garden. She is truly a delightful person and is sincere in her care for other people’s possessions. She is trustworthy, honest and reliable.
Diane comes with the highest recommendation.

Kind regards

To whom it may concern
I am very happy to be a referee for Diane
Penney, and have no hesitation in recommending
her for any house/pet sitting job she chooses to
undertake. I have found her dependability and
responsible attitude faultless and have complete
confidence in Diane’s reliable attitude.
Diane house sat for me for four weeks over the
Christmas and New Year Period. During this time
she proved herself to be trustworthy, honest,
efficient and extremely clean and tidy. I
barely knew I had had a stranger in my home when
I returned!
She cared for my garden birds while I was away,
and if I’d had a pet (I used to own a dog until
he died recently) I would have been only too
happy to leave him in her care. Added to
Diane’s upstanding character is her sympathetic
nature, her kindness and her wonderful sense of
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have
any queries or wish to discuss this reference

Letter of Reference for Diane Penney
Diane looked after our two energetic standard
poodles and our apartment in Geneva for a week
in January of this year. All were in good
condition upon our return. Diane is energetic,
responsible and very tidy.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to look
after a pet, home, or apartment.

Reg & Ruby

  • Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast, VIC

Reg & I have owned pets all our lives and looked after many extras when our children have ventured into travelling careers or taken extended holidays. We are a very responsible, clean and tidy couple who take pride in where we live, we would look after your home as if it was our own. Reg is handy around the house (being a retired builder) and we both miss the everyday interaction with animals.
We are happy to care for your home and garden how you would like along with any pets on the level of care they need. We both love animals and are happy to spoil your pets. We had a swimming pool for many years so can tend to that also if needed.
We are a retired couple (60+) who have just finished travelling around Australia but not ready to settle down just yet. We don’t smoke and are fit for our age. We grew up and lived most of our lives in Melbourne but for the last few years have lived on the Mid-North Coast of NSW on acreage.
We can do long or short house-sits and are happy to travel anywhere on the East Coast. We can keep you updated about your property and pets whilst you are away too.
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to ask any questions. Thank you.


  • Bris. Northern suburbs, Sunshine Coast

Hi Team! I am a 33yr old respectful Full Time worker who is looking to care for a home that I can treat like I would my very own. I am happy with long periods of time. I LOVE animals, and looking after your pets is no problem as I will be there every morning and every night to spend time with them. I am a clean person who takes great pride in her own, and other's property. I love to read, cook, I do not smoke and I barely drink.

I am trustworthy and keen to help out the right people. I am happy to provide as many references as you would like, and I can conduct a police check of course - happy to also meet for a coffee to chat.

Thank you and hope to hear from you soon :)

Long term house sit wanted - Want peace of mind that your home and pets are being cared for?

Thanks for taking the time to read a bit about me - Being a pet lover and owner I understand how you would want your home and pets cared cared for. Reality is I care for pets and or homes as if they were mine. This gives real peace of mind to home owners.

I've done a number of house sits now over a 3 year period and am experienced with pets and taking care of houses. I'm also open to longer term house sit also. I'm a mature professional, have 2 teenage boys ( 21 & 19) who don't live with me but who visit. They are great kids. I'm super tidy ( some say too much so!!) and love animals. Happy also to mow and keep gardens tidy if that's important to you. Maybe give me a call and we could chat about your requirements - Cheers for now.

I have references available and a summary of these appear below, all of whom are happy to be contacted ( numbers can be provided) once we are close to the consideration stage for a sit. Thanks - Rob C We've had the privilege of having Rob look after our 2 cats now for 3 years running as we spend the winter ( 4 months ) in France. Not only are we comfortable that our pets are cared for perfectly the house is kept neat, tidy all the time upon return the garden and lawns are also tidied and in top shape. Rob has been great and we value his friendship and would warmly recommend him to anyone thinking of engaging a house-sitter. Elaine & David Mt. Eliza

After a terrible experience with putting our large dog in a kennel, we just knew a kennel wasn’t an option for our future holidays. So we thought we would try a house sitter, where our dog could be in his own environment and his routines followed. The house sitting experience with Rob was stress free! Which is just what you need when getting ready to travel overseas. Rob was easy going and great with our big dog! He took him for walks down the beach, (which is his favourite place) and kept us up to date while we were away with text messages and photos. Our house was left tidy and clean and all animals were happy upon our return. We would recommend Rob to anyone. Kristy & Dan Mount Martha

"We have 2 dogs, one tiny ( Chihuahua) and the other large a Ridge-back cross. We had to go interstate for a week on short notice and Rob was able to come over, keep the dogs cared for an "in- check" and keep track of the mail and keep the place half clean. When we returned the house was cleaner than we left and dogs had been pampered! Thoroughly recommend Rob for any house sit assignment. Dave & Layla - Mt. Eliza

"Rob is a good mate of my son in-law and he has looked after my little Maltese cross Toby half a dozen times or more over the last 3-4 years if I go away. He lives up the road and is easy to approach and happy to help and clearly trustworthy. There have been times when Toby has needed medication and Rob can be relied on for this side of pet care also. Keeps my house spotless. Easily recommend him. Terry - Mornington.

“Whether Rob is a house guest or minding our place while we are away we always know it will be spotless when he leaves. If we had a dog or any other pet for that matter, we’d love to leave her/him with Rob: he makes friends with all the dogs who walk nearby”. Jan – Port Arlington

  • VIC


I’m Emma, a local 31 year old teacher/educator, currently on hiatus and enjoying adventures house-sitting around Melbourne. I'm an animal lover, happy to work with your parenting style and I’m always grateful to share some cuddles and walks with your furry friends. I'm happy to be sitting while I finish some study and I’m able to spend more time at home keeping the pets company than many, which is quite nice for me too.

I’m pretty active and love being outdoors, so I always enjoy an excuse to go exploring with your dog/s. I keep things clean and tidy, don’t smoke and like to be pretty quiet and routine. I’m also a bit of a green thumb if you need the plants looked after and have experience with administering medications to pets.

I can help give you peace of mind that your house and pets are safe and loved while you’re away. Please feel free to get in touch to set something up.


Roger & Janette

  • East Lake Macquarie, Lower Hunter Valley, Port Stephens, Upper Hunter Valley, West Lake Macquarie, North Coast, South Coast, Central Tablelands, Snowy MTS, Southern Tablelands, Brisbane, South Eastern, Central Coast (Qld)

A caring respectful duo. We are a happy, quiet, easy going non-smoking mature couple who have raised 3 wonderful children and are now embracing a gradual transition to retirement. Roger spent 35 years working across all three levels of Government and Janette has just wound up a 22 year career with Big W. As we were pet owners most of our lives, and now have chosen to travel for a while, we love the opportunity to spend time and care for animals.

We have a beautiful home base in SE Qld from which we have embarked on a self sufficient camping trip around OZ and several long coastal reef sailing trips up the Queensland coast. These experiences are coupled with an early career for Roger as a Horticulturist and Janettes' great love of animals. Roger also grew up on an acreage with a variety of farm animals. This enables us to turn our hand to whatever tasks are necessary to manage and maintain property, plants and animals. We are honest, resourceful, reliable and happy with our own company and enjoying the environment we find ourselves in. We enjoyed a circuit of Aus in 2017 featuring some wonderful house sitting in 3 states and also as a camp ground host on a small property. Resulting in endorsements from all the home owners.

Our intention is to do some shorter trips in 2019 incorporating house sitting if possible as we loved the opportunity to meet some wonderful home owners, spend time with some lovely animals and get to know and explore local communities in much greater depth. Rest assured we will look after your home and pets as if they were our own and respect your privacy. We are new to this site but can provide references from home owners across Australia whose homes and animals we have cared for.

Previous reference."Roger and Janette were absolutely perfect! They really took care of our place and animals well and were great at communicating ie pictures of happy pets! They also went beyond what was expected and worked hard to clean up our pool and help organise a pool technician to come out. really grateful that we were able to go on a 2 week holiday with great comfort that our house and pets were in good hands... and hopefully they had a nice stay too!"

  • Sydney, South Coast

Hi there, my name's Lachlan, I'm a 20 year old Commercial Real Estate Agent who wants to experience a change of scenery (without the high expenses of home ownership or leasing).

I've house sat in the past for both my mother and father (on different occasions) which has given me experience taking care of a wide variety of animals (dogs, fish, birds)

I'm highly habit driven as most humans are, easily adapting to new routines presented to me. Recently, for example, I've been able to maintain a consistent gym attendance of 7 days a week.

My lifestyle is highly work focused as the nature of my profession requires extensive effort and constant contact maintained between myself and clients. When I'm not working I enjoy reading, investing and playing online games.

Being involved in the real estate industry, I understand and appreciate that your home is likely the most expensive asset you own and as such I will respect and care for it as my own.

I appreciate your time, I hope you have a lovely day.

>Why This Joyous Lifestyle<
I love moving and seeing new places all the time and love animals. House sitting and animal care is extremely fulfilling and I feel I am part of a community. I enjoy my independence and have had the corporate jobs in my 20s/30s based in London, that also moved me around in 6 different cities in over 12 years. Combined with 12 years of personal travelling, now based in Sydney, I still love the feeling of moving around. I travel light while maintaining my digital media role based in Sydney CBD.

Thank you for your consideration and please drop me a line, happy to meet and discuss.

With all good wishes,


  • Brisbane, TAS

Hello lovely home dwellers, I'm an early thirties nutritionist and most recently, a youth and community development worker. My work is quite flexible and I enjoy a balance of no more than 4 days of work a week. As I've not yet put roots down with a home, pets or a garden (as much as I would love it) I am very much enjoying channeling my energies into nurturing the homes and pets of others. I'm a very warm, peaceful and personable individual with a responsible and respectful nature. I have grown up with at least one of every possible domesticated pet (and some undomesticated!) and am confident and comfortable in any situation.

I have had a lot of experience house sitting and find it to be a wonderful opportunity to share some positive energy with a space I wouldn't have otherwise had the pleasure of occupying. I'm honest and genuine and am naturally very tidy and organised.

I've had a lot of experience caring for pets with behavioural problems, separation anxiety etc. I'm also calm and confident administering medication.

I would love to be given the opportunity to take the very best care of your home. :)


  • Adelaide, South, Northern Vic, SE Vic, SW Vic

I'm a fit active 73y.o. retired pharmacist. Home owner in suburban Melbourne. Sober and non-smoker. Don't use drugs. Divorced, living alone. When married used to have 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks. Love dogs, especially large ones. Fine with cats. Used to own chooks.

Looking to house sit just to provide an inexpensive change of scenery. My previous experience in looking after other people's houses includes occasional weekend home swaps with friends who live in country Victoria, and looking after their dog. They will vouch for me (contact details on request) and I can provide additional references.

Summary of experience:

Dec 2017/Jan 2018, completed a 6-day sit looking after a house on 5 acres in country Victoria plus 2 Border Collies, 2 cats and about 20 chooks and ducks.

In April 2018 I did a two-week sit of house and large dog in far north NSW.

(see reference on this website)

July 2018 10 days looking after house and small dog in Barwon Heads Victoria

September 2018 5 days near Whittlesea (Vic). House on 25 acres, medium sized dog, galah, 6 chooks, and 3 horses. Reference from this one can be viewed on this website and I have excellent references (available on request) from all of the others.

Jan 2019 and March 2019 - two return visits of approx 5 days each at the same property.

Nov 2018 7 days at rural property near Alexandra looking after large dog and 3 cats.

Dec 2018 five days at semi-rural property at Cannons Creek looking after 2 horses. (see reference on this website)

I live a quiet lifestyle. Not a party person. I look after my home with great care and would do likewise with others.

I'd suggest arriving a day prior to your departure to facilitate an effective handover and help us both to feel confident in the arrangement.

I had a police check before starting some voluntary work and could provide confirmation of that. Also have a Working With Children Check card.


  • NSW

Hi my name is Paul. I know you want someone responsible to take care of your house, pets, plants, mail etc. I can provide you with that..
I am a single 50 plus, non smoker, semi retired person who works as a writer and part time limo driver. I am also a former American who is now an Australian permanent resident.
I can provide you with a police check ( I needed to provide extensive police checks , American and Australian to become a permanent resident ) and references.
I grew up with pets in my family. Dogs, cats, birds, fish, rabbits, turtles. I loved them all and realize that pets are part of the family. I have described my dog growing up as one of the finest beings I had ever had the privilege to know. My dad would say " that dog is a gentleman", which is a high compliment from him. I have taken care of friend's pets and houses as early as my teen years.
I would treat your pets with the respect and care they deserve knowing what it's like myself to have pets in your life this goes for your plants and house as well..
Thank you for considering me for your house sitting position.
sincerely, Paul Spatarella


  • VIC

I am a 50 year old single male recently moved back to Victoria from overseas. I don’t smoke or drink. I have a full time job Monday to Friday 8am to 3.30pm. House sitting interests me so I can save money and it almost feels like going on holiday living in a different house in a different area. I love all animals and have had dogs all my life and cats for half my life. I love to get out the house and walk dogs, I have looked after a dog with diabetes and blindness therefore giving the dog insulin injections twice a day. I am very neat and tidy and house proud. I could give references on request.

Hola! I'm Dani, 34 years old, from Chile!
New in Adelaide and Bachelor's Degree Student in Community Services. I was living in Sydney and Newcastle for the last 5 years.
I have made the decision to live for the next years in this beautiful city and make it my new home.
I find this group fabulous because I can provide my help, being something that I am passionate about, and I will also be able to receive the help I need. Basically I think this will be a great experience since first of all I need to know the city, I need to be in different suburbs before choosing the place where I will settle to live and rent a property in the next months and I am also fascinated by animals, they are the joy of home and the company that I will need in this odyssey!! It will also be a perfect experience to take my studies because I need an appropriate place to become the best student.
At the same time I will work on a part-time basis and the rest of the time I will dedicate it to study.
I am a generally active person, I like to do sports activities in my free time such as yoga at home sometimes, pilates and also a lot of trekking, and also watch movies, who doesn't!. And of course, I will need a lot of time for my studies.
On the other hand, I am a very clean person, exaggerated with the future of this planet and therefore very conscious in every aspect, and also very careful with everything that surrounds me, because I value work above all things.
If you want references you can ask me for them since I have been living in a place with also pets and taking care of them as if they were mine.
I would love to hear from you as well!

  • Brisbane, TAS, Melbourne

Hi there, Chris and Issy here!

We are new to house sitting but are looking forward to showering your pets with love (and treats). We are both clean and responsible and will respect your home like it's ours. We'd love to have our own pet but are planning a move to Melbourne, so having the opportunity to share your pet would fill the big fur shaped hole in our hearts. House sitting will allow us to explore new places and make our way to Melbourne.

Between us, one Mum is horse mad and the other is a vet so we both grew up with plenty of animals. We've had dogs, cats, horses, fish, chickens and other birds, and one cheeky possum named Sumo. Issy and I have had experience caring for all these animals such as feeding, exercising, cleaning and ensuring they are happy and comfortable.

I've worked in IT as a business analyst for the last 3 and a half years and Issy has worked at the Federal Court for the last five. We are both homebodies that enjoy spending time hanging out, watching tv shows and tending to the few pets we do have (our house plants). We are massive foodies and love to cook up new recipes on the weekends.

Issy has house sat for family friends on multiple occasions that included looking after their home and their two big dogs. I've had experience looking after all the animals that my vet mum brings home. If you would like we can send through character references.

We'd love to hear from you and to look after your home and pets!

Hi there. My name is Tim. I love animals and nature, having grown up with dogs, cats, chooks, cockatoos and tropical fish. Animals teach you love, trust and receptivity....and good cleaning habits! Animals sense people immediately and I always have a natural rapport with all animals. . I am a very clean and tidy person as friends and referees will confirm to you all of the above. I meditate to start my day. I am very enviromentally aware and conscious of health and good food. I have a very green thumb and love spending time in the garden. I will leave your house cleaner than when I moved in because that is who I am plus it is goodwill and good manners, both of which I firmly believe in. I am very experienced in house sitting and just returned from doing so in Southern California. I am very practical and work flexible hours with my own car to see clients. I drive alot and I am contactable anytime. I do prefer meeting you face to face.


  • Melbourne


I look forward to house sitting for you and if you have animals (and/or a garden) caring for them as well. I have been around animals since a child having lived on a farm until I was seven. During High School years, my parents annually did a farm sit for two months whilst the farmers had a well deserved holiday - my holidays were thus on a sheep stud with two Jack Russells.

I began house sitting in Sydney in 2015 after being asked to mind my friends kelpies on a regular basis. Due to renting, I was unable to have animals and was glad to help as I love animals. In February 2016, I began minding one home (large garden) every other week, when the owners went to their farm. I did this until June 2017 when I moved out of Sydney.

Work has brought me to Melbourne (August 2018) and a friend has asked me to mind her house whilst overseas. It seems that house sitting is calling me back! I am a clean, honest and reliable person. I've been working as a school counsellor for years and have Working with Children Checks; I've been working as a school counsellor for 15 years and have a Working with Children Check and a National Police Check. Recently I had a career change and am now working in a university as an educator.
I am a non smoker and only drink occasionally.
I have house sat all types of homes; large homes and tiny ones. I've sat large dogs and tiny ones and many cats of various breeds. And one solo bird! I love animals, so pet setting meets that need well. As for gardens - great. I miss the huge garden that I used to care for in Sydney.

My first dog sit referee wrote ...

Having worked with Sharon for a number of years I have come to know of her interest in and love of dogs. She would often visit and spend time with our very energetic and demanding kelpies. So impressed was I by her genuine interest and care for our dogs that I asked Sharon to house-sit while we were away for 10 days in June / July. We left for holidays confident in the knowledge that our dogs would be well fed, walked, entertained, cared for and loved. We were also confident that our house would be looked after - Sharon is most trustworthy and honest. We came home to find two very happy and contented dogs and a house that was treated as a home.

With me looking after your place, you can have your holiday anxiety free.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thomas & Tayla

  • Melbourne, Geelong

Hi there, we're Tom and Tay. We're a young professional couple seeking house sitting availabilities in and around Melbourne and Geelong between October 2019 and February 2020.

We're both exceptionally clean, respectful of other people's property, and are both animal lovers. Unfortunately, as we're renters we aren't able to have our own pets but we still think our four legged friends are the best. Tay has a golden retriever/kelpie, Bondi, back home in WA, and Tom has a tabby cat, Louis, at home in regional Victoria.

Tay is a civil engineer working in Geelong and Tom works in the Melbourne CBD in communications. Outside of work we both love cooking and eating, travelling, and sport. Tay is an accomplished hockey player and Tom is a far below average footballer.

We're looking for house sitting opportunities to help build our savings and would be happy to speak with you about looking after your house while you're away.

My name is Cassie, I'm an independent and mature young woman. I have graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (German) and Science (Nutrition) at Sydney University and am soon to commence a position within the Nutrition/Dietetics department at the Sydney Children's Hospital Randwick.

I thoroughly enjoy house sitting as it allows me to exercise my independence and provides me with life experience beyond living at home. I began house sitting at the age of 18 and have since had many experiences house sitting, both alone and with my partner.
I have always had pets throughout my childhood and believe they offer so much to family dynamics through their unique personalities. I have experience in looking after cats, dogs, and fish and caring for them, e.g. feeding, walking, washing.
In addition, I have also lived out of home and taken on full household cleaning and maintenance responsibilities.

I love the concept of house sitting and the ease it brings people to know that their home and pets will be well cared for whilst they are away. Additionally I always ensure some fresh staples e.g. Bread, milk, eggs are in the fridge/cupboard for home owners return.
I am familiar with the organising that goes into ensuring pets and home are maintained on holidays and sincerely hope that whichever house sitter you select, provides you with some comfort and peace of mind while on holidays!

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you'd like to ask any questions or would like more references.


Emily & Brian

  • VIC

Not available until November 5th heading up the East Coast.

Hi we are Brian & Emily!

We are currently on a journey through Australia travelling around in our 4x4. Brian and I have both grown up with dogs & cats and have great experience and memories looking after them and giving them lots of cuddles and love. After living in our car for a while we’d like somewhere to stay for a short time to enjoy the country and slow down a bit.

In New Zealand we house sat looking after cats but didn’t get the opportunity to experience it more due to having a short time there. So we’ve decided to peruse it in Australia with the help from you wonderful home owners!

We both come from the lovely country side of Dorset, England. Where we’ve worked and lived most of our lives.

Although being young we have a lots of life experience and maturity, becoming open minded, hard working and joyful. Both of us have experience running restaurants at home and in NZ, we helped looked after Labrador dogs, cows and sheep in south west WA and have worked for jef tomson in Vic.

When I was younger (Emily) I helped train my grandparents dog and also enjoyed horse riding with basic knowledge on how to take care of them! Now older I helped my parents train their puppy before coming to Oz, I miss being around my fury friends a lot and really want to have a short time companion again!

Brian grew up with 5 German Shepard’s and 2 cats, he really loves having dogs around and can take great care of them with all his experience.

Being outside lifestyle people we love long walks and nature, so would love to take your animals under our wing while you’re away to keep them happy, entertained but also safe.

Important info:
Non smokers
Can take care full time due to no work!
Enough money for all things
We absolutely adore animals
Happy to help out with other duties
Quiet and clean!
