  • Reduced Contact

Hi, my name is Julie. I am a happy, healthy semi-retired animal lover, who is mature and reliable. I own a small business that I run from my desktop. As a house sitter, this means that I can provide a constant presence to watch over your home and give your pets the same company, care and attention that you would yourself. I am available to sit right across Australia.

In addition to running my own small business, I have also managed a faculty across three campuses and been a busy travel agent and tour guide in my working life. Employers have entrusted me with valuable assets, large sums of money and the well-being of other people. I am reliable, trustworthy and well organised; mature but young at heart.

At home, I keep a very tidy house. I actually enjoy the comfortable routines of housekeeping and seeing the house look as neat as a pin. I never move anything, I am very respectful of a homeowner's space. When you return, you'll find everything just as you left it.

In addition to taking good care of home and beloved pets, I am happy to look after mail, provide regular updates and all the other things that will give you peace of mind while you are away. I keep in touch regularly by sending messages and pics of your little ones, as any of my referees will attest. I love gardening, am handy with a mower and all the day to day maintenance needed to keep outdoor areas looking great.

I am free to travel on flexible dates and take up long or short assignments.
I am health conscious without being obsessive, enjoy exercise and am a non smoker.
I have a police check and references. You will be able to call and verify references. These contacts can be provided on request.

"Julie looked after our house, our old blue heeler, our cat and 3 chooks for around two weeks whilst we were overseas in March 2015. We came home to a lovely clean house and very happy and well looked after pets. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Julie and would certainly love her to look after our house again" - Sharon Vincent Batemans Bay NSW 2536

Rosslyn & Breanna

  • Sydney

Hello my name is Rosslyn & my daughters name is Breanna. We are reliable, honest, trustworthy, non-smoking, quiet living and love to look after pets as if they are our own. We take great pride in looking after your home and you can be rest assured of finding your place exactly the same as when you left it. We have looked after many animals including dogs, cats, chooks, birds & more. We love being with them and giving them lots of pats, cuddles, plays & walks. My daughter is currently studying Pharmacy externally whilst I am currently not working and we both are flexible and wish to see and adventure to other places. Up until now we have been requested by word of mouth (which is lovely, having referrals like that). However, we are now choosing to house sit full time. We both can provide references as well as both holding Working with Children Checks. We both also have a up to date police check on request.. Would love to look after your home for a couple of weeks or a few months. Looking forward to hearing from you :)

Tanya & Rod

  • Bris. Northern suburbs, Bris. Southern suburbs, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

We are a married, healthy, retired couple, both non-smokers who have been house sitting full time for over 3yrs. Having sold our business (in Port Macquarie, NSW) we are now catching up on lost time to indulge in our love of travelling.Prior to running our own business, we were both long term Military personnel and then worked in the Corporate Sector.

We are responsible people who have owned and rented properties, have previously maintained a pool and garden and are used to dealing with any issues that may arise.We are conscious of the care and security required to maintain a property.

We are experienced with animals having had numerous pets (large and small) over the years and know how to deal with both young & older ones.    We enjoy gardening and look forward to tending the different gardens that come with house-sitting.

Being retired gives us lots of time to look after your home, garden and pets.

We have travelled extensively around Australia & in parts of Europe and love the experience new places can offer. When travelling overseas we always tried to stay in places where the locals went for holidays rather than the tourist orientated areas.

We enjoy the experience of "living like a local" and welcome the opportunity to be involved in the day to day life and discovering the beauty of the local area which is far more rewarding than ticking all the boxes to say you have seen all the tourist spots. House sitting allows us time to slowly discover new places, meet people and enjoy the company of pets of all varieties, both large & small.

We are able to provide references (from other house sitting sites) and Police clearances.

Karin & Robin

  • Melbourne

We are Robin & Karin, a married couple from Holland. Robin is a marketeer and Karin is a nurse. 1 year ago we left Holland for a longterm trip and we still have 6 months left before we go back to Holland. 2 months ago we've started to travel in a small campervan from Cairns and our now on our way to Melbourne.
Our main choice to do housesitting is that we love animals and we kind of miss it to live in a house. Especially Robin is missing his cat Mango. For the time being, Mango is living at his parents place together with the dog Daisy. We can assure you that we will give your animal(s) lots of love and attention and thr house will be clean and tidy when you arrive from your holiday.
We prefer to look after cat(s) or animals who don't need our attention the whole day. During our time in Melbourne we will be gone part of the day because of work.
So, if your pet will be allright if we are part of the day at home, we are the housesitters you are looking for! If your pet needs our attention the whole day, you have to look for other housesitters.
The time we spend with your animals, are spend with love and attention.
We are a reliable and honesty couple. We are used to living at ourselves and cleaning the house. We are not interested in nightlife untill the late hourse. We don't smoke.
You can enjoy your holiday without worrying about the things at home.
Unfortunately we don't have any references through HappyHousesitters since we just started. But we are open to have some contact by phone/skype or face-to-face visit before you will leave.

In september '18 we did some couchsurfing by a Aussie couple in Sydney. This resulted in private housesitting in October for a couple of days, due to a holiday they had planned. We had to look after there two dogs (Nikkie & Riley), age 12 & 13. If you would like to have a reference, they are open to have some contact by phone or write a reference.
Our other option for now is to send you a link of our AirBnB and couchsurfing profile to see some references.

Sarah & Andrew

  • Sydney

Hi home owners! We are a experienced housesitting duo (33 & 39) and also a loving friend for your best friend while you are away on holidays. We are super clean and tidy (your house will be as you left it if not cleaner) - active and healthy and love getting out with dogs to the beach and to the park.

We have house and pet sat in QLD, Canada and Sydney for the past 5 years and have looked after many cat and dog breeds, big and small, young and old, birds, fish, chickens and even turtles!

We moved to Sydney in September, and can provide police clearance and many references from happy clients. I have included some photos of some recent happy furry clients.

Full background checks and references available for your peace of mind.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Andrea & David

  • Brisbane

We are Australians, currently located in Brisbane QLD!

Our bags are packed and we are awaiting your call, your home is our home and your fur babies are our children. Happy to do most household tasks, right down to making sure there is fresh bread and milk in the fridge waiting for you. We pride ourselves on being very organised.

We are happy, healthy, energetic, non-smokers and non-drinkers with police clearance and references which can be requested at anytime. Our most recent house sits have been in Perth, Western Australia and Darwin, Northern Territory.

We are a financially secure long-term couple and have been together for 27 years. When living our own life we enjoy Ballroom dancing, Picnic’s, taking care of other people’s children (4 legged), walking, gardening, and doing odd jobs around the house. We love the variety that house sitting gives us, meeting new people and exploring new areas.

We are a couple that move frequently as my husband works on IT projects. We love animals, but find it difficult renting when you have a dog or a cat. We have both always had animals in our lives, from a canary, to dogs and farm animals, all creatures great and small I say.

We have a long history of renting, with no issues raised by the property managers.

Being home owners ourselves in WA, we know all the concerns you might have about other people living in your home. As such we always respect the home we are living in, is someone else’s property. We like to keep our living space as we would our own home, or as we would like our tenants to keep our property. Clean, tidy, well maintained.

While my husband is at work I’m the lucky one who gets to have no commitments, and be a full time house sitter and I will have plenty of time for walking, cuddling and giving attention to your pet's and house.

We both come from families with fathers who are/were master builders, so most tasks around the home we can handle.

We supply all of our own consumable goods and bed, so we don’t need to inconvenience the home owner in any way. If you need to get work or maintenance done while your away we will be there all the time and supervise to make sure your jobs are getting done.

Caring for a home comes naturally for us…

Gudrun & Kirsty

  • Sydney

We are a happy, healthy, tidy, non-smoking couple who have just returned from travelling in South America & Spain (to learn Spanish) - we would love to ease back into Sydney life doing house/pet-sitting around Sydney making new contacts and finding out what part of Sydney we might like to settle in this time. We keep physically active and can take dogs out for walks/jogs daily. Kirsty works from home and is happy to have a cat on her lap. I (Goodie) have a government job with regular working hours and a lot of spare time to spend with pets. We enjoy spending time around the house and looking after it. We can sit as a couple or at times individually if things work out better that way. If we are looking after pets, we are happy to send photos/updates as often as you wish.

We are doing house/pet-sitting via another site also and we have attached a photo of our first reference :)


  • Brisbane, South Eastern, Central Coast (Qld), Northern QLD

Hi, I'm Joanne (Jo).
Originally from Darwin NT, I relocated to QLD in Oct 16 to be closer to family.
I have 3 gorgeous kids who've all grown up and still live Darwin.
I've been blessed with rewarding Housesitting jobs over the past 2 years, and made great close friends along the way!
I love being with my children whenever possible, travelling, gardening and the outdoors. I miss having my pets with me, so being outside and having the company of fur babies around me gain is comforting. Its like being "home away from home".
As a home owner myself all my life, I respect your home and treat it as if it were my own!
Your Fur Babies Too!!

Christine & Graham

  • VIC

We are experienced housesitters and non-smokers who ran our company from Western Australia until our retirement in June 2012.
Our daughter who is a vet nurse introduced us to nursing many neglected RSPCA dogs back to health whilst awaiting new owners whilst we resided in Perth.
Over the past six years we have house sat for many families caring for dogs, cats, turtles, chickens, birds, horses and Alpacas (not the nicest of animals). We even have past experience caring for a baby ring tailed possum and a juvenile Rainbow Lorikeet, we keep adding to our list.
We love animals, are very house proud and above all, we are reliable and dependable.
Upon selling our Perth home and business we traveled overseas and bought a large boat which we have lived on for 6 months of each year followed by travels in our caravan and visits to family in Melbourne. From time to time we require a "pet fix" and as our lifestyle doesn't suit pet ownership, house sitting is a great compromise.
We are currently awaiting the sale of our boat before heading overseas again in 2019.
We are now fully booked for sits in Melbourne until Jan 25th 2019 but will consider offers after this through to mid April 2019.
We have great written references which are available upon request. If you are interested please give us a call or respond to this message.
Christine and Graham


  • VIC

Hi there,
Im Sarah, 38 years old. Im currently finishing up a house sitting position which I've maintained for almost 3 months, and looking for the next great home that I will have the honor of taking care of.

I'm a very tidy, mature minded, and responsible individual. I love the idea of taking care of your fur babies as I enjoy the company.
I like to keep a healthy mind and body, so more than happy to walk and or play with your pets.

I grew up with my own animals and have house sat/minded pets previously for friends (cats and dogs).

As I work at the airport, I have undergone a police and security check, if that helps to know :)

Look forward to hearing from you,

Roger & Janette

  • North Coast, Central 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 Janette's 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.

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!" GARTH (Emerald Beach NSW, Dec 2016)


  • Brisbane

Hi, Michael here,

I live on the beautiful Gold Coast but in the coming months I need to be in bne a fair bit for work so looking for house sits so I can spend blocks of time living there. I do real estate photography (indoor, outdoor & drone) on a casual basis and Uber driving.

We own our home (on a large block with pool) so very used to looking after a property. Pretty much had pets my whole life too and we currently have a 16 year old cattle dog, Ellie (with some blue heeler in her) and a 4 year old ginger cat, Ninja. Please note though that I won't be traveling with them (as much as Ellie would love to come!) as my wife will be staying home due to her own work commitments.

I love pets and especially how they are always so excited to see you when you get home. No matter what kind of day you've had they always get your attention and cheer you up when you walk in the door!!

Just to update (3rd May 2018), I'm currently in my 23rd house sit since June 2016, the first was looking after 2 loving, mad, boisterous dogs in Wellington Point, a gorgeous tortoise shell cat in Coorparoo (3 times), 2 excitable dogs in Fitzgibbon, an elderly cat in Wilston (twice), 2 affectionate cats in Ferny Hills (9 times!!),2 cats, again in Ferny Hills, 2 cats in Kelvin Grove and a very cute Cavoodle in Wellington point!. Happy to put you in touch with any of the above for references (not all were booked through this site).

My main profile pic by the way is with Angus (Coorparoo house sit April/May 2018), a beautiful German short haired pointer and one of the most loving dogs ever, he just can't seem to get enough human contact!!

At 59 I'm what is referred to as a "mature gentleman" although my mates would argue I'm neither mature nor a gentleman....hahaha. I'm very well house trained, a non smoker and love pets, so, you know, probably the perfect house sitter.....hahaha.

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.

Edward & Hannah

  • Melbourne


We are looking for house sits within 20kms of the Melbourne CBD. We love all animals however most of our experience is looking after dogs and cats. We love looking after pets and get enjoyment out of their happiness.

A little about Hannah and Ed:

We are very caring, responsible, tidy, clean, considerate, non-party, professionals in our mid-thirties. We work slightly different hours to one another which works out well as we are able to give pets a lot of attention and walks.

We have a 5 year old King Charles Cavalier (Alfie) who is the most chilled out dog in the world and our most precious possession. So we are also looking for house sits that have pets that Alfie is compatible with. Alfie is patient and is never agitated and would be no threat to your property in the slightest. Alfie is very low maintenance and would be happy living in a one bedroom apartment or a large house. Alfie is house trained and sleeps all day until we come home when he just wants to chill out and sit on one of our laps until we give him his regular daily walk. We regularly wash and comb Alfie who is also a regular visitor at the dog groomer.

Ed is a keen gardener so if you have outside areas that require maintenance that is not a problem.

We would love the opportunity to meet you and your pet/s and introduce you to Alfie.

Please contact us anytime if you have any questions or wish to discuss further. We are happy to provide references on request.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.


I am in my late twenties and enjoy house sitting and love animals. I have mainly looked after dogs but am equally happy around all animals. I like to keep tidy, am a non smoker and respect other peoples belongings. I enjoy watching movies, playing computer games, arts and crafts, photography and spending time with my friends.

I graduated uni and have a full time job, Monday to Friday, but am normally home by about 4.30. I live in the south eastern suburbs (Aspendale) and grew up with pets (a cat, two dogs and many birds and fish).

I started house and pet sitting when I was a teen for friends and family when they went away, and decided to start full time professional sitting while at uni. I always loved animals since I was little however knew I would never be able to be a vet. Pet sitting has meant that I get to work with animals on a caring level. When caring for a pet, I always treat them as my own and have made life long friends with recurring clients.

I am always happy to meet both you and your pets before you leave. This means that your pets can be formally introduced to me to ensure they don't feel threatened or abandoned. As pets require an extra amount of responsibility, I do ask for a small fee for my one-on-one caring services, however I am happy to negotiate for long stays. This fee includes walking as required and any other special care your pet may need (medicine etc).

House only - No charge
Cats - $15-$20 a day
Small or non active dogs - $20-25 a day
Large and active dogs - $25-$30 a day
Multiple animals - I may add $5
(I do not charge extra for peak times and am happy to negotiate for long stays)

Gill & Sara

  • Adel Southern suburbs, Adel. Inner suburbs, Adel. N. suburbs, Riverland, Flurieu Peninsula


Are you looking for reliable, mature, animal loving housesitters to care for your beloved pets and home while you are away?

We are Gill and Sara, a couple currently living in Adelaide who are mature (both well over 30, and more!), responsible and trustworthy house and pet sitters. We genuinely love looking after animals and miss the cuddles and bond created as we currently live in a rental property where pets are not allowed – boo hoo!

Gill works from home full-time on our online blog (after many years in retail management) so is able to spend all day at home during house sits to give all the attention your pets need and want (she just needs a bit of Wi-Fi where possible). Gill also does some security work on a casual basis and has a current security licence.

Sara works in retail management and isn’t home quite as much, but makes up for it with cuddles and love when she gets home! We’re not ones for watching TV (Gill looks at a screen long enough anyway!) so evenings are more about taking walks and reading until we fall asleep!

We have lots of experience of house and pet sitting for family and friends and have both grown up with cats and dogs. We are both happy and experienced administrating medicines. Sara has a lot of experience with reptiles, birds and chickens and is comfortable looking after these where needed. We are planning to travel the Big Lap around Australia in a few years, so jumping on the online housesitting wagon to get more experiences before we hit the road.

We take pride in living in our clean and tidy home that reflects how we treat others homes too. We will look after your home as we do ours and will do everything we can to ensure a relaxed return home for you. We also have experience in maintaining areas within properties including gardening, plants, greenhouses, spas and chlorine and saltwater pools.

Both Gill and Sara have clear National Police Checks that can be provided on request (valid from Oct 2018) along with references if required.

As we live in Adelaide and ideally looking for house sits in the area, we are happy to travel locally to meet and connect before any decision is made.

Thanks for taking the time to read our profile.

Please feel free to contact us with any other questions and we’d love to hear from you soon.

I have been doing house sitting on and off for a number of years. I am trustworthy, reliable, clean and friendly.

I am starting house sitting again after a year's break and enjoy the company of an animal or two and taking care of some yard, plants etc. I like to explore new areas that I haven't necessarily been to before, even if it is just walking new beaches or tracks, going to different cafe's, (I'm not a night person).

I have references and a police check available.

  • Sydney

I am looking for somewhere to live while I find a new rental home. I am a healthy, responsible and respectful person who will treat your home with utmost care. I like to keep my space tidy and clean so you can ensure you will arrive back to a well-kept home. I'm a beach lover, enjoy yoga and recently discovered a love for cooking and creating new recipes in the kitchen. I work part-time so will have time to care for pets if needed! Thank you.


  • Sydney

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

I am a quiet and considerate professional (and non-smoker) who often works from home – so your pets will have a ready and attentive companion (currently I’m spending a lot of time writing and developing resources.)

I am open to housesitting in a variety of places in Sydney or near surrounds (although I would prefer longer house sits of 3 weeks or more).

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

I'd love to hear from you!



  • ACT, NSW

Hi, mature retired female Freelance Photographer of people and thousands of children over an 18 year period. Independent experienced housesitter for a total of 14 and a half years, 95% word of mouth.The 13 and half years were between 1996 to 2002 and 2009 until now 2018 caring for much loved and adored fur family pets and homes and at one time, two teenagers. A change in direction with business, and wishing to travel again led me into seeking housesitting positions for the second time. Based on the Northern Beaches for years, references are available for previous house sittings and present ones. Because the vast majority of my house sittings are word of mouth interested persons do not need a written reference, however, through the agency, I do have written references that can be sent to you (I have yet to upload more references to my page yet) and of course you do have permission to phone check any of the references and the homeowners will be glad to talk to you. I love people but I require quiet time alone with animals for company, I am very much an animal person and my top priority is to keep all animals happy and care for your home to the best of my ability. In my personal life, I spend many hours on my laptop, I have my own travelling mini modem, therefore, your pets have my company nearly all of the time. I am not a party person, good friends live in various parts of Australia so I usually go to see them whenever I have free time I have lived with many big dogs, Great Danes and German Shepherds and Labradors, Cats with amazing personalities, a Snake, Horses and a Lamb and pet Chickens. And wild Birds seem to like me. Being patient, responsible and highly respectful of other people,s privacy and property, I would be more than happy to be there for you if you need me. My housesitting at present takes me to the Central Coast and the Blue Mountains and Sydney's North Shore. I have gone further out of that area so I will consider further North or South of NSW. Interstate I will consider also. Clean and tidy, leaving your house as you would like to find it. I am a non-drinker. Excellent References are supplied. I mow lawns when necessary and water pot plants and gardens. I look forward to hearing from you, Kind Regards Jaime.

Milenka & Luke

  • Brisbane

Hi! I'm Millie and have recently re-located back to Brisbane after a long trip overseas. I'm a pharmacist who works at a public hospital Monday to Friday. I'm a responsible person who understands the needs of pets and am happy to spend time with them and take them for walks with me. You can be assured that your home will be cared for as if it were my own and will be spotless when you come back. I have house/pet sat in the past at several homes and can provide character references on request. I have had a recent criminal history check that can be provided (required for my profession). My partner Luke is a civil engineer who works and lives on the Gold Coast but will likely stay over a few nights a week. Feel free to send me a message and I'd be happy to meet your animals at your home prior to your departure. Thanks!

Peta & Izzy

  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

Hi, we’re Peta & Izzy
Genuine, loving & Experienced pet & house sitters – we are there when you can’t be. Providing full-time extra loving care for your pets, home & garden.
We have looked after many many houses & wonderful pets over the last 2 years. We have excellent references for your peace of mind plus current National Police Checks.
We're a couple in our 40s, happily together for 19 years. We are experienced in keeping pets happy and homes beautiful. Up until 2 years ago we were living overseas and when we returned to Melbourne our home was rented & everyone around us kept asking us to house & pet sit for them so we decided it suited us as we love animals and love to experience new areas.
We have had the pleasure of our own fur babies that were our children, a lab cross & a burmese cat. Now we don't have any pets or children, we give our love to all the fur babies we look after and it truly makes us happy and gives us so much joy. I (Peta) run my own business in promotional marketing and work mostly from home. So I am there to care for your pets and give them the attention and love they need. The daily walk or run with your dog is a priority!

Feel free to get in touch with us anytime – we'd love to meet you and your pets and chat about your house & pet sitting requirements.

Additional information & references available upon request.

Andrew & Robyn

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

Aussie couple with references from past home owners whose homes & pets (potted plants, pools, gardens, yards, hedges, edges) we've cared for over the past 7.5 years house & pet sitting, mostly in Sydney. I work from home so am home a lot as company for your pets. Andrew works as a hire car driver and is in & out.

Genuine animal lovers we give your pets the TLC to which they are accustomed and do our utmost to maintain their familiar routine - feeding, walking, play time, grooming. We have verifiable references from all past homeowners (many of whom we return to on multiple occasions) who will confirm returning home to contented pets, sparkling home, well maintained pool, garden & potted plants. Andrew has experience with all types of pools (solar, salt, chlorine) and maintaining lawns, edges & hedges. I enjoy tending the garden - a therapeutic break from working on my laptop.

Past "sits" range from suburban homes to inner city apartments, townhouses, rustic residences, beach side properties & country cottages.

While away we maintain contact with you as much or as little as you like. Since commencing this lifestyle choice in March 2011 we have enjoyed pretty much seamless 'sits', returning to past homes & pets we have grown to know (& love:) time & again. We are mindful not to incur unnecessary expense & restrict use of dishwashers & washing machines to off peak. Non-smokers, responsible, houseproud, security conscious, quiet living, fit & active: we have no human kids and lavish affection on your fur family.

We take our role of House & Pet sitters, seriously. A respectful, practical, responsible, hard working couple (mature in age but young at heart) we will not disappoint. Feel free to contact me, Robyn, about your specific house sitting needs - phone 0417.206.321.

Michael & Bernadette

  • Brisbane, South Eastern
  • Reduced Contact

We are an active and mature non-smoking professional couple who run our own internet businesses and we have reached a stage in life where we have the freedom to be able to travel and be inspired by new experiences and locations.

Both of us are animal lovers and have had many animals over the years. House-sitting provides us with a great opportunity to travel and meet new people, care for their homes, pets and gardens while they are out there having a well deserved break!

Michael has spent the majority of his life as a Singer/Songwriter/Entertainer and now promotes his songs and jingles on the internet. You may want to watch our song video "Follow Your Dreams" link below which is exactly why we have now changed our lifestyle to be free to travel in the prime of our life.

I have been involved mainly in Sales and Marketing but my passion is video and photography production.

We have properties in Australia that are currently rented and fully understand the concerns that your home will be lovingly cared for.

Being a mature and responsible couple, we can assure you that your home, pets and gardens will be looked after and your neighbours will still be talking to you when you return home.

We are currently enjoying discovering Queensland around the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Gold Coast.

Please do not hesitate to contact us and we look forward to meeting you in the near future. Police check available on request.

Hi there,
My kiwi husband, Oliver and I, Bess (Australian) would love the opporunity to house-sit your home + look after your loved pets. We have just moved back to melbourne after 3 years in New Zealand and enjoy the newness of changing our environment, house sitting is perfect! We have an energetic + fun-loving 9month old son named Micah. He has just mastered the art of patting dogs and is a worthy pet sitter!
Olly, a builder, works around Melbourne and I spend most of my time with Micah whilst holding an online nutritionist job.
We are outdoorsy folk + love to live a healthy lifestyle. We enjoy surfing, travelling, community volunteer work and foodie experiences.
We understand the importance of treating anothers home better than our own, we are tidy, non-smokers and will be very respectful of your home, pets and property.
We have experience in house sitting and would love to chat further if you are interested in letting us look after your home in your absence.
Kindest regards,
Bess, Olly and baby Micah

I am a non-smoking professional currently living in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney and working at the Department of Health. My brother is a Vet so I grew up with a variety of pets and consequently I am able to take great care of yours. I am more than happy to provide updates of your pets well being while you are away - and to do other tasks such as collecting mail, watering plants, emptying the bins etc Having been the leaseholder in a share-house for several years, I am conscious of the care and security needed in keeping a home maintained. I can provide references, as well as a police clearance. I am a responsible, reliable and considerate person, and take excellent care of any home I stay in. I have travelled the world and have been a considerate guest wherever I have stayed.Please feel free to check my air bnb reviews as well:

Peter and Mary Peter: 65, Retired.  Mary: 66, Retired.

We have sold our home of 26 years and are now looking forward to building and reestablishing on the Bellarine Peninsula Victoria. We would like to take care of homes for other people during that transition, so we can be close-ish to the new build. We have both recently retired from working in schools and have current police checks. We are both non smokers and would treat your property as you would want it treated. We are dog lovers and have enjoyed dogs of our own in the past but are currently without any animal company. We are experienced house sitters and have also pet sat for both family and friends many times over the years.
Mary and Peter.
