Terry & Amanda


  • Brisbane

Hi all!

My name is Amanda, I'm a 27 year old Wedding and Event Manager working in Southbank and I've been house sitting consistently for almost 3 months now and absolutely loving it!

My father house sits quite often and he recommended it to me. I enjoy house sitting because it gives me the opportunity to meet different people, experience difference parts of Brisbane, and have the opportunity to enjoy the company of pets as I'm not in the position right now to have them myself as much as I would love to!

The house I am looking after now is for 3.5 months and I have another one after this lined up for 5 weeks, I do a number or chores for the currently house such as do the lawns and gardening, including whipper snipping and edge cutting, water the gardens, lawns and plants, clean the pool daily, walk their dog daily and provide medication,, check the mail, take the bins out, maintain the house and keep it clean etc.

I walk every morning at 530am before I head off to work. On my two days off I am usually relaxing, however I also do like to be productive, explore the local area, head outside to do the gardening, see some friends here and there, or of course spend the day at home completing household chores or relaxing on the couch binge watching Netflix.

I'm very committed to looking after your home and pets and treat everything with respect as thought it is my own and I will complete any tasks that you require done whilst you are away, ensuring that you come home to healthy and happy pets and a clean, safe home.

It would be great to have the opportunity to look after your home and pets whilst you are away also.

Thanks for your time and I hope to hear from you.

Warm Regards, Amanda

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.

  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. NW suburbs, Syd. Upper N Shore

I am a, 40-ish non-smoking. non-drinking, trustworthy professional, currently living in Wollongong and working full-time in Sydney.
I am looking to save for my first home, and have stumbled upon house/pet sitting as a perfect way to assist in that regard, as well as cut out my daily commute.

I have lived in rentals for the past 10 years down in Melbourne and have decided to move back to my home town of Sydney.
I have always treated any rentals as I would my own home, with care and responsibility. I am conscious of the care and
security needed in keeping a house maintained. I have grown up with pets and consequently 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, I would also be happy to obtain a police clearance.

Please feel free to contact me any time to discuss your needs.

I am a home owner who is currently in the process of paying off my house in Edithvale. At the moment I have listed my house on Airbnb and have started to accept guests. When guests are staying I plan to either house sit or live with family that live close by. You can find my listing on Airbnb as 'Perfectly Presented Edithvale Townhouse' to see how I look after a home. I am a highly professional and conscientious person who is highly respectful.

I owned a siberian husky x german shepherd named 'Ned' for 16 years. Sadly he passed away a few years ago. I have looked after peoples homes and dogs in the past and would take great care of yours. I am available for any length of
house sit and can provide both personal and professional references, as well as a police checks through my Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) registration.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I have previously owned 3 homes (Sydney and Brisbane). Married for 30 years (now divorced) and have 2 adult children.
We've had dogs, cats and an assortment of other animals plus I'm comfortable looking after reptiles.

Previously worked within Advertising agencies, commercial radio (Sydney, Melbourne and Hong Kong), holding management positions along with running my own handyman business in more recent years.

I have been house sitting homes in city and rural areas off and on for about 5 years, often caring for acreage/ waterfront
properties. I'm very familiar with pool care and grey watering systems and I've decided to continue home sitting in a full time capacity.
I'm quiet living, sociable, non smoking and enjoy an occasional glass of wine. My interests are; camping, bush walking, gardening, sailing and reading.
I look forward to meeting with you and discussing your needs. I have encluded a couple of references for you to read.
Kind regards,

I am a non smoking, active, mature, professionally employed woman (2 days per wee)k) who loves peace and quiet and my own company. I am very houseproud and would consider it an honour to care for your home, garden and pool.. I have excellent references so please give me a call.

Jenny & Peter


  • Darwin, Bris. Northern suburbs, Bris. Southern suburbs, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast, Mackay & Whitsundays, Adelaide, Hobart, Launceston, Devonport, Melbourne, Northern Vic, SW Vic

We have sold our lifestyle block, dream home and animals, preferring to travel and the good company of new friends. We are currently undecided about our final destination. We resigned from our jobs in November 2015 and have spent the last 3.5 years travelling the world and house sitting. We have enjoyed the hospitality of many kind, like minded people across the world, leaving wonderful memories and enjoyed finding our way in new lands and communities.We love life, people, animals, good wine, good coffee, good food and great company.

Our pet-caring experience is extensive and varied - dogs (large & small), cats, fish, ponies, sheep, quails, chickens etc.

If you have pets, be assured that we truly appreciate the security they feel with a familiar schedule/exercise/playtime routine and promise you that your customs, requirements and feeding schedule will be adhered to.

However, we know from experience, it's not just animals who can suffer from separation anxiety! To remedy this we send regular updates of your pets.

We are practical people and as experienced house sitters are used to dealing with a wide variety of issues - blown fuses, power outages, water issues, pools, security, etc.

In summary: -
- We offer honesty, reliability and commitment.
- We guarantee security-conscious, respectful care of your property.
- We assure you that your pets will have plenty of attention and loving company whilst you are away.

If you want to see what we've been up to for the last 2 years check out our blog www.virgoswilltravel.wordpress.com. There's no advertisements and we're not trying to sell anything. It's just a fun record of our travels and housesits.

We are always keen to Skype or Facetime to get to know you and answer any important questions.

We very much look forward to hearing from you.

Police checks and additional references are available on request.

Ray


  • Melbourne

I am a mature,fit,non-smoking male, I love all animals and have had a cat , Budiges and Border collie dogs in the past.I dont have any pets at the moment so i look forward to looking after yours.. I love walking to keep fit so enjoy taking you dog for a walk on its usual trek or down to the local dog park to socialize with other dogs. I have the time to devote to your pets to keep them happy and healthy while you are away and make sure your home is secure ,clean and tidy. I live a very quiet lifestyle and am a non smoker and very rarely drink. After my first housesit I received a very positive reference and was asked to come back again. You can find that reference attached to my profile page.


Isabelle & Kjol


  • Melbourne

We are a 27 and 30 year old non-smoking clean couple who love animals and will look after your home as if it were our own, We are reliable, trustworthy, experienced, friendly and responsible.

Who we are:

Hi I’m Isabelle and I have lived in Melbourne my whole life. Kjol is my partner and he is from Anchorage Alaska. We would love to look after your home!
Kjol and I met 4 years ago when my friend and I were doing a road trip around the US. We now live in Melbourne at my family home while we wait for our partner visa to be approved. I work full time as a project support officer and as Kjol isn't able to work he is completing his studies online. This is particular great for those pets that need extra company throughout the day as Kjol is home during the day.
We are both reliable, responsible, friendly and love animals. We have both grown up with a variety of pets, I have had dogs and chickens, and Kjol has grown up with cats, dogs and lizards. We both love the outdoors particularly going for walks on the beach or in parks. We can also be home bodies and love watching shows together, reading and Kjol is a great artist so loves drawing.
Having grown up with a big backyard and a very enthusiastic gardener for a mum, her green thumb has definitely rubbed off on me and I love looking after gardens.

Why we want to house sit:

We have both house sat before and absolutely love it! One of the main reasons we want to house sit is our love of animals and the importance of a good house sitter to our loved ones! We have had a personal experience with this and how important a caring house sitter is to our pets and their health. When Kjol’s family was going to Costa Rica for a semester their house sitter fell through. Their new one was allergic to cats and didn’t tell the family and instead locked the kitten in a room for most of the time. Poor Kaos has never been the same again! I treat all animals as if they were mine and this comes from my love of animals. I love cuddling animals particularly when they are up for it and I find fur babies definitely make it less lonely.

We are also at a stage in our lives were in the next few years we would like to buy our own home. House sitting has given me the opportunity to live in different types of homes and areas to see what is important to us in a home.

So please feel free to get in touch. Kjol and I would love to look after your home. We can provide a police check and references on request and would be more than happy to meet you before we house sit. Hope to hear from you soon.

Isabelle and Kjol

Graham


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, VIC

Hi there, I'm a semi retired 50 something male (non smoker) who looks after people's pets and homes. I have had many happy clients, including lots of dogs and cats and horses and cows (see pics); I'm sure their owners are happy too.

I have many references from pet owners who you can speak to; including police personnel, doctors and business owners, so you can check my bona fides.

I have much rural experience and I'm rather handy with tractors, diggers, ride on lawn mowers, chainsaws and the like. Homes in my care have varied from farms to cute cottages to executive palaces and high security homes.

My preferences are northern rivers of NSW / sthn Queensland and the greater Sydney area, and now, Melbourne. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks :)

  • Reduced Contact

We are a couple in our early 60’s – recently retired who enthusiastically enjoy house sitting because it allows us to provide a valuable personalized service to home owners. Nothing gives us more pleasure than making home owners feel comfortable with being away from home, knowing their house is in good hands until the owner's return. We're very grateful to all our wonderful clients for the opportunities they have granted us through inviting us into their homes and lives. We receive trust, and in exchange, we provide loving care. We are non-smokers who are honest, reliable and dependable house sitters who will respect your property and personal things. Our background was in education. We have owned a home and are fully conscious of the care and security needed in keeping a house (including a pool) maintained. Also we have had pets that lived very long comfortable lives because we treated them as part of our family. We will care for your pets as if they were part of our own family. We have had experience in house/pet sitting before and we have references available on request.

Single, non-smoking, quiet, animal loving house-sitter available...everyone catered for - from greyhounds to great danes!
From a country background, I was brought up with all sorts of animals and am a certifed equine sport masseuse.

My first house-sit was supposed to be for one weekend and ended up being a four year stint:))

Currently I work Mon-Fri evenings on my laptop (home based.)

In addition to this, I do a couple of morning and weekend evening shifts in the city so approx 20 hours a week I would be out of the house, so not suitable for anyone requiring a sitter to be home 24/7.

Refs available upon request.

Preferred Location: anywhere handy to transport connections.

You will see that I have completed numerous house-sits looking after over fifty dogs, plus cats, birds, horses, goats, cattle and fish.

Michael & Susan


  • Brisbane

Hi,

We sold our house in Robina last year and looking to house/pet sit on the Gold Coast in 2019.

We would feel privileged for the responsibility to care for your home and pets.

Sue works casual hours and sometimes works from home. I do real estate photography with a drone and some Uber driving.

I have had a police check as part of having a ride share licence (for Uber driving) and we both hold a current Blue Card which also involves a police check.

Having been home owners for 42 years, we understand and respect the importance of caring for your home and keeping it clean and tidy. Our homes have all had swimming pools which we have capably maintained. We are both non-smokers and live a fairly quiet life.

As part of our family over the years we have raised a beautiful Cattle Dog, Ellie who is now 16, and living with our older Daughter on her farm in Lismore, a ginger Cat, Ninja, a Lop Bunny, Fluffy, Fish, Hermit crabs and Nick the Cockateil who lived to the ripe old age of 27. We would find caring for your pets second nature!

We've had a lot of house sitting experience, in the last 2 years I've done about 25 sits in and around Brisbane and Sue has done 5 here on the Gold Coast, and a couple in NSW. We have some excellent references we can put you in touch with.

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

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

Cece


  • Melbourne

I am a single, recent UNSW graduate ready to move to Melbourne. I am looking for alternative housing while I explore the various suburbs of Melbourne before I commit to buying a house of my own. I am currently living in Jervis Bay where I on and off look after my parents house and two amazing kitties while they travel abroad. I have grown up with cats my whole life and have experience in giving medication, feeding, grooming etc. While I have never lived with a dog, I would be open and willing for the experience.
I am available from October 1st to December 2nd (2019), December 27th to January 20th (2020) and February 2nd onwards. I would prefer sits of over 2 weeks so I can really get a feel for the area and connect with your animals.
As I work full time from home, I will always be there for your pets. I am a responsible, clean and considerate person, and would love the opportunity to take care of your home and furry children.

Leah & Teague


  • Sydney, Central Coast

Gday, we are Leah and Teague, Professional working couple in mid 30's based in Sydney.
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 started our pet and house sitting journey in 2019 and so far we have pet-sat puppies, dogs, kittens, cats and rabbits.
Teague has studied agriculture and in doing so has experience caring for farm animals including sheep, calves, chooks and goats.

Both non-smokers and clean, we like to walk in the evenings and spend quiet nights at home (yes we have definitely hit our 30's).

During our sit we like to provide photo updates so that you know that your pets and home are being well looked after. We are also easily contactable via email, whatsapp and messenger.

If you require references, we can provide these upon request and are available to chat on the phone or meet in person.

Contact us now!

Melissa & John


  • Launceston, Perth

Thanks for visiting and hope we can help but. We thought we'd let you know before reading through our profile that we're booked for nearly all of 2019 now with only a short availability in late July early August and then from January 2020 on.

We run our IT business from home and now have over seven year's full time house and pet sitting experience. It's keeping us very busy and has become a way of life looking after all kinds of pets while their families travel. Working from home also means we can give pets extra care when and where needed. We have places that we go back to regularly but also love the adventure of meeting new friends too. We're Queenslanders but have been in Perth for a few years now and love it very much. House sitting allows us the opportunity to visit and experience a great variety of homes, some a little off the beaten track and others in the thick of city living. We love pet and house sitting because we love looking after pets while their families travel rather than see them go to kennels. Sometimes this can be for extra long periods of time and sometimes even for an entire year. We're also home owners with loads of experience looking after pools and gardens of all shapes and sizes and depending on size, caring for larger more time consuming properties is negotiated before agreeing to the sit. Our rural and farming backgrounds have come in handy as we also have a couple of regular farms sits that give us a welcome tree change every so often. Our references with contact details are there for checking for your piece of mind as are our police clearances. We will treat your home and belongings with respect and give your pets plenty of love and cuddles, yes even the cows if they're willing. We enjoy a relaxed casual lifestyle and tend to stay around home couch surfing rather than being out and about. So... if you'd like to have a chat please send us a message or email us. It's a good idea to start with a meet and greet so you can decide if we are the right sitters for you. It's the vibe of the thing really. You'll know if it's right. We look forward to talking to you soon.


Jeanette & Michael


  • Melbourne, SE Vic, SW Vic

Hi, my name is Jeanette (known as Nettie) and my husband is Mike. We are retired and enjoy travelling especially to Australia where our only daughter lives. We are an active couple, Mike enjoying cycling and I’m a member of a local walking club and gym and love gardening too. We have a cat called Ditten who we have had since a kitten and is now nearly 18years old and we love him to bits. We have also had past experience of dogs. We are non smokers and tidy people and respect other people’s homes and possessions.

Trish & Richard


  • Perth, S. Western

Richard and I are young at heart retirees. We both love animals and miss having dogs and cats in our lives. House/pet sitting gives us the best of both worlds because we can combine our love of travel with our love of animals. We have looked after houses and pets for friends and family many times so we can provide references from them. Unfortunately I am highly allergic to feathers/birds so can’t help with your feathered friends. We are both non-smokers and enjoy outdoor life, especially walking. Because we used house sitters when we had our own animals, we understand how important it is to treat other people’s houses with respect and ensure their beloved pets get loads of cuddles and attention.

keitha


  • Sunshine Coast

I have been a local on the Sunshine Coast for over 30 years. I'm single, non-smoker, very reliable, honest, easy going with quiet habits and who loves to keep a clean tidy home for you. I am also water and energy conscious. Being a home owner myself, I have also experienced first hand leaving everything that I love and care for with someone else. My animals were always my major concern. Would they get the same love and attention? I can assure you that sensitivity towards the privacy of your home with an added touch of TLC will be given respectfully to your wishes/needs and your animals also. Animals with specific health requirements, require a gently and comfortable approach. I have loved and owned a variety of animals including looking after a baby snake. I like to walk for exercise so if you have animals that require this, then together we can enjoy the great outdoors. Watering gardens and maintaining pools are both familiar to me. Not a problem. I am confident once we chat and meet, you will feel that your belongings and beloved animals are safe in my tender loving hands. Love to hear from you.
