Colin


Hello,
I am a single white aussie man 58 years old currently living in Engadine and happily retired. Having owned my house for 40 years, I understand the care and
security needed in keeping a house maintained. There is always something to do. I am used to 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 will provide both personal and professional references if required. I will do my best to take good care
of your property. I am available from 1 March 2016.

I have just handed in my Sydney water ID pass , ASIC pass from Sydney Airport and a MSIC from Ports. So I'm not in a hurry to do checks after 40 years of going through the hassle. Thats why I retired too much paperwork but if needed I will get a Police clearance. Certainly can prove drivers licence ,rate notice, bank staemnet etc
I have recently left Sydney Water after 39 years. I am wanting to start a new role with less pressure and to work locally.
One of the main reasons for my exit from Sydney Water was due to the length of time spent travelling. My depot was at Daceyville and on most occasions the travelling time to Engadine was close to three (3) hours each day.

I have spent most of my career in a compliance role traditionally known as Trade Waste inspector, then Trade Waste Officer, then Customer Service Officer-Trade Waste and most recently appointed to the position of Business Customer Representative. In these roles I became familiar with plumbing and liaising with many agencies and people regarding multiple issues.

I believe this is an ideal new start for me as I only need to occupy myself with part time stuff and don't require money as I am on a modest super pension. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to do house sitting for you. Ring to discuss if you want.

Victoria & Mealie


  • Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, Rural/Regional NSW

Mealie and I would love to take care of your home, animals, and plants while you're away. We offer you peace of mind, taking excellent care of your home and offer companionship for your pets. We're great company as we love to stay home, cuddle and play as well as head out for regular walks.
I've owned my own home so understand your requirements.
I've also been on 'both sides of the fence' as a homeowner requiring a sitter and as a sitter, so know exactly what is required when caring for your home.
I am a single woman, non-smoker/drinker, '50-ish' and work as a figurative ceramist. I love peace and quiet, and Mealie is by my side 24/7.
We have lived in the country for many years so we are very familiar with rural settings, but we're now based in Lismore NSW. We love getting out and about, traveling and exploring in our self-sufficient van. We are house proud and would consider it a privilege to care for your home, pets, and garden, treating them as our own.
Being a responsible, reliable and considerate person, I would take excellent care of your property. Our availability is flexible with both personal and professional references available on request.

  • Melbourne

Hi my name is Alicia, What started as a short stint to fill a gap has turned into almost 2 years of full time housesitting. I'm currently fully booked until the 26th January 2020, but if you have a long sit after this feel free to get in touch.

I'm a 39 year old professional who works full time in finance in the CBD. I am originally from Melbourne, sold my home in October of 2017 and have been housesitting since. Doing a great job on your sit is very important to me as its how I get referrals for further house sits. Once committed I will never cancel (and never have), a feature that can be a rarity!
I'm a non smoker, who loves animals and have previously owned dogs (various Labrador X's) including a number of rescue dogs (which come with their own unique challenges, but I love). I have kept tropical fish and have shared houses with lizards, cats and a variety of birds (chickens, canaries, love birds and a cockatiel). I also have experience looking after marine fish, rabbits and guinea pigs. I work full time, however I am able to take your pets for up to twice daily walks with ease. I also have the ability to work from home at times (normally once a week), however, if you need someone to be at home with your pet all day every day, then unfortunately I am not the right sitter for you. I will give your pets lots of love and attention before and after work though, as well as weekends! I will live in and keep your home as I would my own, I prefer to always meet you and your pets in person prior to a sit and will ask you lots of questions to ensure your pets (garden and home) are looked after, not only to my high standards, but more importantly to yours. I will seek to understand your expectations on updates and contact whilst you are away, any health issues your pets may have had or currently have and anything I need to know about your home.
I have experience with administering numerous medication to animals, including injections, creams and twice daily tablets. I've attended dog training with all of my previous dogs and am happy to help out if your pets have minor behavioural issues. Happy for pets to sleep either inside with me or outside as required by you and your normal routine. I have previously used housesitters to care for my dog and so understand the potential nervousness you can feel when leaving your home and pets in the hands of a stranger. I would love to be considered for your next housesit and look forward to speaking with you.

I have references and a police check that can be provided on request.

Thanks
Alicia

HOMELOVE:
Kind, caring, loving with animals, protective of your home, its all part of the HomeLove service! I am a non-smoking, professional, reliable woman in my mid 40’s who will look after your home with a high degree of care and commitment.

I am currently a registered nurse after having had a career change later in life, and love the work, it’s challenging and different every day, and I get to meet a diverse range of people. I no longer do shift work, but work mostly business hours doing community health nursing.

I love to travel and have been to Africa, India, Sth East Asia, the US, Pacific Islands, and Europe during different times in my life, and love the excitement of seeing new places, and learning about new cultures. I enjoy reading, movies, and nature, and will love to get out and about with your dog on walks if you have one! I love all animals though and will love nothing better than snuggling up with some Netflix and your furry kitty or pooch!

I started housesitting as a great way to save money after studying, and have never looked back! I've loved housesitting as I get to meet lovely pets and new people, and it is refreshing to experience new places. I have been housesitting for 6 years and have many regular clients now, which is lovely as there is a great connection between myself and their pets and the family, but am always ready to meet new furry friends!

I have always loved animals, having looked after all kinds during my youth on farms and through my past employment in the wildlife industry, including cats, dogs, chooks, ducks, fish, lizards, turtles, possums, and horses, and it will be a great pleasure to take care of your loved family members. Your pets will receive much love, ear scratches, and tummy rubs from me, I can guarantee it!

I am super clean and tidy, quiet, sensible, conscientious and practical. You can leave with the peace of mind that your home, animals and property will be cared for with respect and mindfulness, and when you return, your home will be spotless, and your animals happy.

Excellent references can be provided.

Any general suburbs of Melbourne, but am quite open to other areas. Also looking for Gold Coast area over summer! I look forward to hearing from you!

Jim & Sue


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

Retired couple who have had extensive house sits in Victoria and Queensland.
Good references available and because we are volunteers at our local hospital, we have police checks, as is mandatory for all hospital staff.
Indeed, we have been asked to return sit by hosts on a number of occasions.

We are active in golf and badminton and live a healthy, non smoking lifestyle. Any dog-walking is considered a pleasure, not a chore.
Past hosts have commented positively on the way we have left their home and garden. Importantly, we always turn up on time and have never cancelled a commitment.

  • 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

I am currently available for any period of house-sitting and can provide personal and professional references. I am a highly reliable, responsible and considerate person and would take excellent care of your property and pets. I also enjoy peace and quiet and enjoy my own company.

To whom it may Concern
Reference: Michael & Cathy Freeman
Dear Sir/Madam
This letter is to confirm that we have used Michael & Cathy Freeman as house sitters at our country property near Daylesford in Victoria on two occasions.
Both sessions were for a couple of weeks and involved looking after our cat and now our dog as well as maintaining a “lived in” look to our house.
Michael is an experienced landscape gardener and builder and Cathy is a registered theatre nurse, so you can expect that they have an excellent understanding and control of things while you are away.
We have remained in contact with them and have no hesitation in recommending them for a similar role at any property.
We are happy to be contacted in relation to any application they may make and look forward to having them back at our place at some time in the future.
Yours sincerely

  • Melbourne

Hello all,

I'm George and I am a fun, single professional who loves animals of all kinds. I love to travel and see house sitting as a way to travel in my own city.

Physically active and a non-smoker, I will be able to give your pet the time and attention they deserve. Love chilling out at home after a hard day with the company of some loving animals.

I have looked after a number of animals that include dogs, cats, chickens, guinea pigs, rats, birds and fish.

I am a clean individual who will take care of your place with pride. Happy to perform daily cleaning duties and other chores you may need. I would be glad to look after your home and your pet so you can take a break stress-free.

I have quite a bit of experience with dogs raising and training my own German Shepherd X since he was a pup. Having said that I also love the independent and mischievous attitudes of their feline friends.

If you think I suit what you're looking for, give me a call and I can supply references on request and look forward to meeting you soon.

George.

Hello...i do like most animals..but the reason I,m on this site is principally to do with economics...no bull!
Grew up with dogs as pets.In adult life my partner forced cats upon me & lo and behold i grew to love the critters too.
Later on a moggy claimed me as his owner for 8 years...very heartbroken when his time came.
Not fond of aggressive dogs though...so give me a pass if you have such vicious animals..i may not like the owner!

Pensioner ..worked at schools as gardener/handyman...on the Mid Nth Coast NSW

I am n/s not too interested in grog.Interested in health of body/mind/soul....yeah one of those nutters.

Single professional female looking for short term house-sit before relocating to Central Coast in December. Happy to look after pets, plants etc. Booked now until 9 November so available from then until first weekend in December.

I work full time but work for an agile company so can work from home regularly if your pets like company. I am also home on weekends. I am reliable and am happy to provide references.

Dianne


  • Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast, Bundaberg & Wide Bay

47 year old Office Manager/Executive Assistant who loves all types of dogs and has a brown mini-poodle "Poppy" @poppylepoodle who is 10months old.

I am very organised, clean and tidy and a non-smoker. I love spending time in the garden and would enjoy looking after your pet and plants. Unfortunately I'm allergic to cats.

Poppy is very social and loves all people and dogs, she's fully vaccinated, spade and toilet trained. We go for 2 or 3 walks a day, and love heading to the park or beach for some fun on the weekend and when we are on holidays.

I've just started house-sitting, so don't have any specific house-sitting references yet, but am happy to provide contact details for Poppy's doggy day care who can attest to her friendly disposition and also my landlord who knows how well I take care of my rental property.

Nina


  • Melbourne

I am a single, non-smoking professional in my mid-30's working full time in Richmond, Melbourne. I have considerable house and pet sitting experience, which has all been via word of mouth so now I am branching out!
I'm reliable, considerate and being a home owner myself, am conscious of providing the care and security required to maintain a home. I am available from 1st June, 2019 for any length of time and happy to provide both personal and professional references on request.

Geoff


  • Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle, Wollongong & Illawarra, VIC

Hey!
I'm a single, non-smoking, professional, happy, healthy and house-trained male. After 10 years in the same house in the Melbourne suburbs I decided to move earlier this year. The problem is I'm not sure where. Thus my interest in house-sitting to explore some new areas.
A sweet-spot is to be within a reasonable distance to the Geelong area where my elderly parents live.
Otherwise I'm happy to explore the city, coast, interstate, the bush or even a farm.
I do have some flexibility in my location as I run an online coaching program helping business people complete their projects - a laptop, phone and internet connection are all I need to keep this going. This also means I can be on-hand most of the time to give your pets some consistent company during the days.
I have house-sat for friends and family in the past - this has included a few dogs, a handful of cats, a budgie and even a wittle white wabbit - they seemed to be happy in my company provided I patted them and walked them (not so much the cats). I'm also happy to keep your garden going. Let me know what you need and I'll make it work.
I have references available on request and if you'd like a police check I can organise that too.

Lawrence & Senaai


  • Melbourne

Engaged couple from Brisbane. Late 20s. Non-smoking, pro animals. We currently work in the higher education sector, while pursuing creative careers on the side. Grew up with animals (spoiled cats, crazy dogs) and have been regularly called upon to house sit for family members. Kind of like animals more than people. Happy to provide references.

Only looking for house sits around Christmas 2019.

linda


I am a retired librarian, a widow, non smoker, very careful housekeeper and keen gardener. I like to travel and house sit anywhere in Australia. I have lots of experience, 6 years, as a house sitter and have many references to show the level of care I provide. You can be assured of the very best attention to your home and garden and your pets. In fact many homeowners have asked me back for second and third sits. Can't say more than that! I will care for cats, birds, fish, one very small dog. I have my own transport, mobile phone and mobile internet so am fully equipped for independent house sitting.

Nicole


  • Melbourne

You need not look any further, you have found a caring, trustworthy sitter to mind your home and precious, loved ones, including collecting the mail, taking out / bringing in bins and general house cleaning, as required. I keep an exceptionally clean and tidy, secure home, to ensure you peace of mind while you are away!

I am a 49 year old woman, and very experienced in pet / house sitting and tentatively mindful of home owners houses and precious pets in their absence! Please note that I am a non smoker and have no pets of my own.

Having grown up in a friendly pet loving home and having always been privileged to have pets close by, I have a genuine love and natural affiliation with animals and have responsibly cared for them in the past as I would my own. I regularly reassure owners of their pet's progress and house upkeep during their absence. Looking after your home / pets would be as much of a benefit to you / them as it would be to me.

Being locally based I am very familiar with the area and flexible with potential meeting times. Therefore, it would be easy for me to meet with you, at your convenience, to discuss your requirements further.

I am a happy soul as well as actress and creative writer of screen plays. I’ve always loved animals and had my own adorable dog for 10 years, similar to Frankie the one "on loan" in the photo. Your furry friends will be well looked after with lots of walks and TLC. I find that spending time outdoors with a pet is the perfect break from writing.
I’m a non-smoker who is responsible, super organised and on the ball. It would be my honour to treat your home with the utmost respect, keeping it spotless, safe and secure.
Many thanks for your interest in my application. I have references, testimonials and a copy of a current National Police Certificate to put you at ease and am more than happy to meet you and your pets at your convenience.
I can be contacted on 0403 138 447 or maccadacca7@gmail.com

Steph & Jon


  • Melbourne

Hi,

We are Steph and Jon, a couple who are both 30. Steph is originally from Brisbane and has spent the last 4 years living in London. She is a Social Worker and has been working in child and adolescent mental health. Steph loves hiking, baking, travelling, sports (yoga, netball tennis), reading, going to the beach, and all animals. Jon is a Management Consultant and has been working in Finance in London. Jon is originally from the Isle of Man and loves conservation, working on various projects around the world e.g. whale shark and manta ray research in Mozambique, with orangutans in Borneo, and large jungle cats in the Amazon, Jon also enjoys DIY, sustainable living, cooking, making sourdough bread, single malt whisky, hiking, rugby, being outdoors and playing with his nephews.

We have decided after 4 years in London, to move to Melbourne. We are looking to house-sit when we first arrive so we are able to get a feel for the area and begin to set up a permanent home base. We are ideally looking to find a house-sit from the beginning of October 2019. We thought we would give an official house sitting website a try for the first time, after doing it informally for our friends and family and being inspired by Steph's Mum who has been house-sitting for years as her retirement hobby!

We are big animal lovers. We both have experience caring for our own pets: guinea pigs, fish, cats (Burmese and Russian Blue), and a Labrador. Steph's grandparent's owned a big farm in N.S.W where she spent most of her holidays as a child, this is where she fell in love with all creatures big and small from collecting the eggs and taking care of the chickens, helping birth a calf, to learning to ride and falling in love with horses! While in London we had our own cat called "Moon" and have been part of a great website called "Borrowmydoggy" where you borrow dogs in your area for walks (we regularly looked after a Portuguese water dog cross poodle called "Boots" and a sausage dog called "Slinky"). We also look after our friends pets (dogs and cats) when they are away on holidays.

Thanks for taking the time to read our profile :)

Elaine & Michael


  • VIC

We are a mature, responsible couple who have had extensive experience over 3 years house sitting. We have looked after a wide variety of animals during that time including dogs, cats, tropical fish and chickens.
I am retired and Michael works part time in the construction industry as a mechanical plumber. We are homeowners ourselves and our home is now rented out on a long term basis as we recently purchased a yacht which we live on in Hobart. Our plans this year are to come back to Melbourne from early May to the end of September to visit family and friends and tie up loose ends before finally cruising full time.
We are both non smokers, house proud, enjoy gardening and exploring new neighborhoods. We are happy to provide references from previous home owners.

Linda & Frank


  • Sunshine Coast, Bundaberg & Wide Bay

My husband and I operated a successful B&B for 22 years, until April 2017 when we sold the business. We have recently sold the business and entered the next exciting chapter in our lives! Prior to our B&B life, I worked as a Secretary/Personal Assistant and Frank spent most of his life working on the technical side of Telecom Australia (now Telstra). I have returned to part-time office work, mainly to keep myself busy and to help pay for short breaks away!

We have been married since 1996. We are easy going people and make friends easily. We are physically fit, non-smokers and we both hold unblemished drivers licenses.

Over the years, we've done the "travelling-all-over-the-countryside" holiday, but we really like the idea of spending quality time in a small village or town as opposed to the "try-to-fit-everything-in" visit!

We have family in Oxford in the UK (and 2 lovely little grandchildren) who we usually try to visit each year and my father lives in Hervey Bay Queensland. We like to experience things "as a local". You never get a real feel for a place unless you can spend some quality time there; and that's what we enjoy. We've seen the places we want to see - and now we just want to enjoy them.

We would be more than happy with a short-term assignment/s. Ideally we would like to be considered for a 2-3 week assignment, but would also consider a shorter house-sit. Certainly if we were in the area, we wouldn't mind a 3-4 day housesit if it helps out. Lots of house-sitters prefer long sits, but short sits are fine with us, given our situation.

In 2012, we completed a 15 day house-sit in Callander (Scotland). In 2013, we did a 14 day house-sit in Bath and a 6 day house-sit in Aberdeenshire. We were later invited back to Callander in 2014 to our first house sit, where we happily obliged. We have also completed several housesits in Queeland - Noosa and Hervey Bay areas.

I also have a current police check, a Working With Children check and currently employed at our local medical centre on a part-time basis.

Sasha


  • Sydney

Hi! I'm Sasha. I'm a 35yo single working from home education consultant, animal lover, non-smoker, into health and fitness, who has been house sitting for 1.5 years. I'd love to house sit for you and your sweeties.

I am extremely tidy and clean; I treat a house well, as if it were my own. I prefer to keep my social life outside of the home. I've grown up with ducks, rabbits, chickens and dogs; animals really like me - I think they like the calm energy :) As I often work from home your sweeties will get lots of care and attention and walks.

What makes me stand out is my integrity - I follow through on any requests and I keep to a high standard in how I treat and leave a home. I take my responsibilities seriously and like to do that bit extra to make coming home a pleasurable experience for the house owner.

In addition to the reviews on this site I also have them on Aussie House Sitters https://www.aussiehousesitters.com.au/house-sitter-pet-sitter/your-home-is-your-castle and Mad Paws https://www.madpaws.com.au/petsitter/sutherland-nsw/sasha-s-experienced-kind-and-calm-pet-sitter?

(Please note I used to house sit with an ex but no longer do that which is why some reviews mention us both)

  • Sydney, Bris. Northern suburbs, Bris. Southern suburbs, Bris. Western suburbs, Gold Coast & Hinterland

Available to house and pet sit in Sydney's CBD, and all surrounding suburbs - East, West, North, South and anything in between!

Hello there! I'm Sheree - genuine, open, kind, happy and trustworthy if I had to describe myself in five words or less.... so you can rest assured knowing that your home and fur kids will be in the best of hands.

My lifestyle is quite simple, healthy and fuss-free. Fresh air, the beach, exercise, great food and sunshine are what keep me smiling and sane, while at the same time, I love seeing live bands and, as former Adelaide girl, discovering Sydney! No smoking or drugs, and the occasional drink at best...I'm a poster child for the clean living lifestyle :)

I work part time as an account manager for health food brands, and moonlight in a casual sales role managing merchandise in the entertainment industry. This gives me the freedom to work from home and promote products that I love, allows me to meet and create friendships with people from all walks of life, and offers a flexibility of lifestyle that I absolutely love!

I've been house-sitting on and off for the past five years, and a seasoned renter for over 20 - extremely self-sufficient, I come very well house-trained and I'm very much used to any issue that might come up! Clean and clutter-free, I'll take care of your home and your pets as if they were my very own.

I adore animals of all shapes, sizes and breeds :) I grew up in country South Australia where every animal crossed my path at one stage or another! From cats and dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs, to fish and turtles, and cows and sheep....you name it I've lived with it or a looked after one or many! Even wallabies possums, wombats and snakes made an appearance - my family are active carers for injured or orphaned wildlife, so home was always a haven for them too.

I'll keep you updated as often as you'd like to be with photos and texts, just for your peace of mind that all's well back at home.

And as well as your all-important pet, your home will be taken care of too! Any plants that need watering, mail that needs collecting, scheduled chores that need doing - you name it, I'll manage it. I'm your one stop shop for all of this - because there's no better feeling than security and knowing you'll come home to not only a happy pet, but a clean, well-maintained, fully-functioning home!

Give me a call to arrange a time to get to know me! That face to face meet is a clincher, and while I don't doubt your pet will love me, you need to be comfortable having me take care of them and your home too! References are readily available should you need them also :)
