Kalar and Brett


  • Northern Rivers, Tweed Coast, Bris. Southern suburbs, Gold Coast & Hinterland, TAS, Gippsland

In the new school year, we are open to places in the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Northern NSW. Brett teaches music 3 days a week at private college on the Gold Coast. I am at home most times. We are a great team. I love to cuddle, snuggle, massage, coo over all the animals, make sure they are fed and clean and related. Brett loves to play with all the animals. All their needs, and more, are met by us. We have current police reports, and excellent references.
We are well travelled American/Australian and Australian/NewZealander and have housesat and animal cared many times over 10 years, and also had others housesit our homes we have owned in Maleny Australia and Nelson NZ. We follow the golden rule, and love the concept of sharing home spaces, caring for a home, not a housesitter. We love animals, and know that they are members of your family, and we will treat them like members of ours. We are spiritually conscious, and always aim to bring quality life and good energy wherever we are with the goal of helping co-create a better life for all. We have housesat in Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, and America, and we bring good positive energy to keep your home and animals nourished. I love nature and caring for a garden, vegetable, or floral. We are clean and conscious, non-partiers, peaceful and cooperative.
As well established travelers who have often used housesitters, we know the gift it is to have someone on whom you can lean. We like to provide that service for others, and believe what goes around comes around.
What we bring to the assignment / relevant experience
Well experienced in small units to 100 acre properties, from city to country, and from average suburbia to multi-million dollar estates. Organization, integrity, great communication, empathic with animals, clean, clarity, spiritually aware and conscious, multicultural realities. We are able to cover the depth and breadth of your needs as a loving and committed married couple. Our own great teamwork blend of partnership can serve you in your household needs. We have joyful expression and kindness as an asset to offer to your beloved animals. We have had our own gardens and properties and honor the relationship we have with you, your animals, and your property. We are honest, clear, trustworthy, caring.

Loretta


  • ACT, NSW, Alice Springs, Darwin, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

I have been an owner of dogs for 20 years. I am pet friendly, responsible and reliable. I am of good character and trustworthy both with your home and your pets - something that is very important to me, and I empathise with the decision to have someone in your home taking care of your precious pets. When I go away I have pet sitters come to my home so my dogs are in a safe familiar environment in my absence. I am fit and healthy (non smoker) and am able to walk dogs and maintain a clean house. I will respect your home and your privacy. My partner is a stock agent. He is very capable with all requisites re the land and animals. He has cats and aviaries and Ollie the cockatoo. He is a real farm gem. He also works as a gardener on a property in the Western District. He is very capable and versatile and can and will turn his hand to anything. I am interested in house sits by myself, or with Wes, depending on your requirements. I do have references on this site, from previous happy pet owners. Hope we can assist each other .

  • Melbourne

"I'll take care of your pets and home as if they were my own."

Hi There!
I'm a 30yo single female who has recently returned to Melbourne from a two year stint living in the UK, I now have the travel bug so I'm only staying in Melbourne temporarily... I LOVE animals and can't imagine my life without them which is why I have been house sitting since I have been back whilst I await my next adventure!
So far I have spent 2 months house sitting a larger than life Great Dane and a very intelligent yet goofy Hungarian Vizsler, I then moved on to Williamstown where I was taking care of two of the most loving and snuggly Minature Schnauzer's for two weeks and am about to start my third house sit in Prahran where I will be keeping a Golden Retriever and his Kitty friend company while their family are away!
I have experience with both dogs (big and small, strong and not so) and cats (I used to have two beautiful fur babes of my own) along with other small pets including mice, fish and insects!
I'm very clean and a bit of a home body who loves to cook, read and keep fit.
I work in retail in Middle Park for 3 days one week, four days every second week.
I have glowing references that can be supplied upon request :)!

Hi there,

I'm Adrianna, I joined Marley for most of the housesits mentioned above. I have a Cavoodle Dexter and a orange Tabby cat Winnie at home who will be looked after my parents (in the outer suburbs) while I'm housesitting. I work in marketing and I've just started a new job in Fitzroy so would like to be closer to work. I also love the company of pets therefore looking to house sit. I'm waiting for my European passport to arrive so I can join Marley in the UK.

I'm very clean and will keep your house tidy as if it's my own.
I have a police check which is uploaded to my profile.

Fiona


  • Sunshine Coast, Melbourne

Hello, I am a single, non smoking 50-something woman looking for house sitting opportunities in and around Melbourne. I currently work full time in the CBD but am wanting to take some time off (hopefully next year) to travel around Australia housesitting. In the meantime, I thought I'd start locally.

I have lived with animals pretty much my whole life - feels like I grew up in a menagerie - cats, dogs, budgies, goldfish, guinea pigs, chooks. My last 2 fur babies were Turkish Van cats who lived to be almost 20 years old and passed away in 2016 - they were known by everyone as "the girls". I've been pet free since and really miss their furry company. The girls were indoor only cats (although they really really wanted to be big, brave, outdoor adventure girls) so I am a wiz at cleaning out kitty litter trays and am not offended by the occasional miss/mess and always assert that the fine coating of cat fur that I used to wear only added to my overall look.

I currently live in an apartment but have lived in houses with large gardens which I really enjoyed looking after so am happy to look after yours. I am a bit of a minimalist and like to keep my home clean and tidy (but comfy) and will keep your home the same. I have done some housesitting in the past so do not have any recent housesit references yet.. I have attached a couple of character references and a police check to my profile. As I live locally, I can be available at short notice.

Grace


  • Sydney, Grampians, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

Hi there! My name is Grace, I joined this website because I enjoy exploring Australia and want to continue visiting different places like a local. I love animals, especially evening cuddles after a long day at work. I’m a very responsible, tidy and respectful young woman who can guarantee that your beloved pet and family home will be well loved and treated with the upmost respect while you’re away! Call me anytime for questions :)

Craig & Kate


  • Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle, Wollongong & Illawarra

10 Reasons Why..... Your Housesitting Search Stops Here!

We are a quiet, respectable, happy couple looking to explore and discover different parts of Sydney and the North & South Coasts, before purchasing our first home together. We both have experience looking after homes, gardens, pets (and even children!) for friends and family and are ready to take our trusted experience and unleash it on the city of Sydney and beyond. Hold on to your hats people! Sadly we’re not leaving home for the first time. We’re 40-ish, full-time working professionals, non-smokers and animal lovers. We’d relish the privilege of caring for your home and pets and look forward to hearing from you.

ABOUT US:
Kate is caring and fun-loving and has travelled extensively all over the world. She has an inquisitive mind, a passion for people, new experiences and learning new things; but also savours peaceful time to herself.

Craig is the grounded one. He gets things done - including keeping Kate in check! He loves his work (which can be surprisingly rare in this world) and being involved in sustainability projects. He also has a bit of a nerdy side and enjoys strategy games like Star Wars X-Wing.

If we sound like the right match for you, your home and your cherished pets, please get in touch.

Samantha


  • Melbourne, SW Vic

Hello there! My name is Samantha, but people call me Sam. I am 46 years old, single and have no kids. I am a hard worker and enjoy the simple things in life. I love to travel, read, watch films and TV. I also enjoy getting out into the fresh air and especially like going for walks along the beach in St Kilda or Elwood.

I'm well known amongst friends and family to be an organised, clean, neat person who can be relied upon and who has integrity, honesty a genuine friendly down to earth nature.

I have recently completed a certificate in Travel and Tourism and am looking for work in this area. Having made this bold move to change careers and return to study has meant I am seeking alternatives to pay my mortgage and therefore have decided to rent out my place and do some house sitting.

Obviously, I value my home and will treat your home with respect and care while staying there, as I do mine! I am a homebody and value a relaxed serene oasis to live in therefore will treat your home as such.

I have had experience with housesitting although it was back when I was younger. But generally speaking my friends and family often ask me to feed their pets when they go away. This is a regular occurrence.

This year back in June I also lost my cat, she went missing and still remains missing. So in a sense this has also triggered me to make this move and do some petsitting/housesitting. I believe it will assist me with going through the change of not having her around anymore, and also I would love to have the experience of caring for a pet again. However, I like the idea of something temporary at the moment, and this seems to fit the bill and serve many purposes!

Although, I imagine they would be rare, I am also fine and happy to house sit a place with no pets.

I can provide references on request.

Claire & Jeremy


  • TAS, VIC

Dear Homeowners,

We are Jerry and Claire, a couple of early retirees (61 and 58), who decided to sell up and leave home (before our grown up children decide to move back). We spend our time travelling, sightseeing and generally having a good time while we still have some energy and reasonably working body parts. I, (Claire) ran my own arts outlet for 19 years, and Jeremy was a Service manager and Mechanical Engineer for a shipbuilding firm in Hobart. Jerry is especially handy and can fix most things that go wrong in the house. He is good with pools, all things mechanical and he does love gardening and watering, I prefer watching him at work from the sun lounge...

We had our dog Polly for 17 years, and have also been cat owners, and can now add to our list of pet care, bearded dragons, blue tongued lizards and parrots, and a pony. We have had chooks for many years and now have extensive experience with all breeds of cats and dogs big and small, of every temperament. You can rest assured that we would care for your pets as well as you would yourself, and we try to keep to their normal routine with walks, feeding etc. We enjoy a quiet lifestyle, we are at home a lot of the time, and don't go out at night very often. My hobbies include painting, reading and writing. Jerry read a lot and is keen on any form of sports being a typical Australian.

We have been homeowners for 27 years, living just outside Hobart by the sea , we enjoy country life, city life, anywhere new is fun and exciting and we are comfortable in all environments.
Since we decided to change our life and travel more, we spend some of the year in Asia (and have settled on Hoi An in Vietnam, and half the year in Australia, where we return regularly. Both our children are now living in Melbourne, our favourite city, and housesitting allows us to visit wherever and whenever we like. We feel very at home wherever we aer and find it easy to fit in to any routine or lifestyle.

We would most definately maintain your home and garden as well as you would yourself, (maybe even better), and we always keep in contact with owners regarding their pets when they are away to allay any worries, you can have as much or as little contact as you wish. We know that your pets are part of your family and we give them a lot of affection, plenty of walks and the best care possible, so that you can holiday in the knowledge that everything is perfectly well cared for.

*We have over 28 excellent 5* references and police checks and have been housesitting for over four years

I am a 67yr. old, non-smoking, fit woman, who has had extensive experience of housesitting throughout Australia, New Zealand, the UK as well as one sit in France, looking after all kinds of animals.

I consider myself to be honest, reliable, trustworthy and caring towards both animals and home.

I love this lifestyle, as I am now able to travel after bringing up a family in New Zealand and retiring from the work force, which was mainly in the nursing area.

Have owned and sold several homes in New Zealand, and we always had pets when I was bringing up my family.

Hello. I am a retired senior federal public servant, mature (sadly!), married woman looking to do some house sitting. I live with my husband in our own home on the Gold Coast and we currently have a dog and a cat. I am an experienced "pet" person, having had all manor of animals in my home, from mice, birds, fish to cats and dogs. Our own dog (a kelpie) is currently 7 years old and a very crazy young thing, needing lots and lots of exercise. He was supposed to be an outside dog, but somehow that rule hasn't been fully applied! Our cat is almost 4 and is very much busy with chasing the dog around. I am able to garden, clean the pool, look after the house and pets. I am a non smoker. Though I plan to "house sit" usually by myself, there would be times when my husband would join me for a short break. We are both thoroughly house trained! We are planning to formally retire in a few years and I feel that house sitting in different places would help me to get a feel for various districts by living like a local, rather than as a tourist. I am most happy to look after pets and would look after your home well. I have now done many house sits (and many return sits) and can forward names and contact details for these house owners as references. I have a written personal character reference that I can send on to you as well. Hopefully all will tell you how wonderful I am. Oh, and also that I am honest, reliable and trustworthy. You can email me on eevahelena@yahoo.com.au anytime. My preference is for short breaks, up to three weeks or so, and around the ACT or anywhere in NSW. Thanks. Eeva

  • Melbourne

Hello there, 



I am a reliable experinced and trustworthy, single non-smoking Pet lover!



I've just moved from Sydney & am looking to do more house/petsits for a while to get a better feel for different areas of Melbourne before I choose a Suburb to call home. 



I have always had pets in my life. My 2 Daughters now live in Melbourne & one has our family Cats (pictured) Kimba & Cooper, 2 rescues we adopted when we lived in Mornington back in 2010. I miss them terribly & will adopt another rescue cat or dog one day when I resettle :)



Looking after Pets is certainly a perk of sitting. Getting to know them and their individual personalities is special. I have sat many different kinds of dogs & cats & a few chickens too. I am currently House/pet sitting & have always Pet-sat for friends whilst they were on holidays & have always enjoyed it.



I am a homebody & I can work from home if your Pet needs company or more care. Happy to follow whatever instructions & routine you decide. Hopefully they will like pats & a snuggle sometimes, as I do. I am super clean & will keep your place clean as if it were my own. Also, happy to communicate updates as frequently as you like.



I have pet sitting, personal, work references & Police check available. I also have a editable Housesitting agreeement document available to use if you like.



Please message or call me for to explore the possibility of sitting for your pet/s. Happy to meet you & your pet/s to see if we are a good fit. The sooner the better to lock in your sit.



Hope to hear from you today.



Cheers,



Julie :)

Lisa


  • Melbourne

Hi,

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 am available from 20 Jan 2019,

I occasionally house sit for a family I know and they have a cat and a dog.

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 I occasionally look after, he's a spoodle - such a great dog.

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

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Gemma


  • Brisbane

I'm a teacher who loves travelling during the school holidays. I usually use Airbnb, but a friend suggested housesitting as I love animals. Aside from travelling and attempting to stick pins in as many new places on my map as possible, I enjoy outdoor pursuits like hiking, horse riding and surfing.

I grew up on a farm, with the usual mix of animals such as dogs, cats, cows, sheep and poultry. I also kept random pets throughout the years such as cockatiels and geckos. In addition, I'm a keen horse rider and very confident around horses.

I can provide a police check/teacher number/blue card, etc so you have peace of mind, plus the reviews from my airbnb account/previous sits so you can rest assured that your house will be in good hands.

Danielle


  • Sydney

Hi my name is Danielle and I am a single, mature ex country girl with loads of experience with a host of animals from ponies & piggies to parrots, peacocks, alpacas, chickens and many more. Nothing is too much trouble especially elderly cats and dogs who are my specialty as they definitely do need that extra attention. I know how precious these senior citizens are as my beloved "moose dog" lived just past his 17th birthday and I always hated leaving him during his last few years but I was lucky enough to have a gem of a carer whom I trusted to look after him when I had to leave him for the odd week every now and then.
I can administer medications, tend to grooming and dietary requirements...whatever is needed to ensure your babies are perfectly looked after whilst you are away.

I am exceptionally fit (non smoker) & will see to it they get all the exercise they may currently get and in addition there will be bucket loads of cuddles and then some, as we all know too many cuddles are never enough!

I have 2 green thumbs and have a good knowledge of plants so if you are a plant lover like me you can relax knowing that they will be as robust on your return as when you left.

I am a meticulous house keeper & would look after your home as if it were my own. All of my previous house sitters will attest to this and I can supply excellent references from all of my house sitting clients as well as having a current police clearance.

It is always good to get a feel for someone to see if they are a good fit with you & your pets and I am happy to have a one on one with you so you can see if I am what you are looking for in a house sitter......Danielle

My husband, Marty and I have rented out our property near the Great Ocean Road, Victoria for a year and are looking to spend the winter/spring somewhere much warmer. We have a 10 year old female Jack Russell, called Billie. We have 20 years of experience renting out our own properties and pride ourselves on our high standard of house and garden maintenance. Marty was a Parks firefighter for several years and is skilled in gardening/landscaping, chainsaw and building maintenance. I have a legal background and have managed our ski resort property in Canada for almost 20 years. We both love gardening and are passionate about all animals, especially dogs. We have our own ducks and chooks, and Marty has experience with caring for and riding horses. We both surf and ski and are looking for properties to look after where we can enjoy either the ocean or mountains. We do not smoke and respect other people's property in the same way we respect our own. We lead a healthy and quiet life (early to bed and early to rise). We are able to provide a reference from a recent house/pet sit in NSW.

Linda & Sjoerd


  • VIC

Nice to meet you! We are Sjoerd and Linda, 2 happy Dutchies who quit their office careers to travel the world. We love animals because animals make a house a home. Linda grew up with dogs, rabbits and little parrots and Sjoerd never stopped dreaming about taking care for a little friend. ;-)

We began our trip in New Zealand to travel around in a campervan for 10 weeks. In januari 2019 we travel to Australia. Being outdoor makes us happy and a lovely kitchen to cook in too. :) Linda used to do a lot of roadcycling back home. She participated in a relay team of Ironman Maastricht en rode La Marmotte, a classical European crazy cyclists thing. Sjoerd loves mountains and snow so he walked up Mount Blanc in France. Sjoerd also likes to go for a run and enjoys being Linda's very helpfull help chef in the kitchen. Besides being active we enjoy yoga and try to live in the moment as much as possible. We are looking forward to a temporary home and taking care of your pet(s).

Feel free to send us a message to get to know us better. We would like to share videos about our current trip - and our house sitting references from Bali en the Netherlands.

I currently live and work in Melbourne, living in a share household. I house sit as I also enjoy having time to myself. I also love caring for pets. Over the past years I have sat on many occasions with many homeowners asking me back to sit for them.

I will take really good care of your pets. I genuinely enjoy both cats and dogs. I Like taking dogs for walks and offering lots of affection. Same for cats too...except the walking.

Will also take good care of your property and leave it in an excellent condition.

I have excellent references. A police check. I don't smoke.
I am a friendly respectful guy who is very clean and tidy
Cheers, Patrick

Hello Myself and my partner currently live in Brisbane Queensland. We both moved here 4 years ago to study and work. Parents of 3 beautiful grown up girls, 1 dog and a bird. We have in the past been parents and carers of cats/dogs, snakes, lizards, birds and rabbits to name a few. Now the girls have grown and moved out of the family home we find ourselves with time to explore. So combining our love of travel and respect/ love of animals here we are.
We take great pride in our family home and your home will be looked after and as tidy as you left it. We like to be busy so are happy to do some gardening, mow a lawn and small jobs around the home with your permission.
Great references.
Short notice usually ok depending on travel costs.
Happy to sms pics of your fur babies for reassurance if requested.

  • VIC

Hello there! Please feel free to look at my profile.

A little about me. I am originally from Melbourne though currently split my time between New York and Australia. I have a clothing label and also work with my father, musician Nicky Bomba (John Butler Trio) so we do a lot of traveling back and forth with work.

I have been housesitting for many years now due to my work schedule and take great pride in looking after someones house. I treat it as if it is my own. I have over 9 years experience, so it is reassuring to have someone you can trust and knows the ins and outs of how housesitting works :) We now housesit around the world which is very lucky. We sit places with 1, 2 and sometimes 3 dogs, cats, birds, horses, fish - you name it we have looked after it.

I can provide many references and I am also happy to contribute to utility bills/rent/mortgage and also provide a security deposit if requested for reassurance.

When I housesit, I often update the owners of the animals with text messages, emails and photos just for the comfort of knowing they are okay.

I have a 12 year old daughter but over the summer period in Australia she spends a lot of her holidays with my mother in Geelong and as we don't see her that often with being in New York, so there may be a couple days here and there when she is with me but overall it will be just be in the house. She is very well behaved and enjoy animals as much as I do.

I work full time and am a bit of a homebody so you wouldn't have to worry about parties or loud music, etc. And the beauty of having someone like myself who works from my computer is that the extra safety of having someone home during the holiday season at all hours of the day.

The dates that I will be in Melbourne between Mid November 2016 - March 2017. I am available for housesitting during this period. I also have a car.

Thankyou and feel free to contact me back if you want to organise a skype meeting or a meeting when I arrive back in Australia. I can work on a time convenient for you

My wife and I own and operate an online business, established almost 8 years ago. The majority of our customers are world wide. As a result, we are permanent travelers, but need to be in Australia to visit with grand kids and assorted family! We are animal lovers, and recently gave away 2 fabulous cats to a good home. (Normally our sons look after the cats, but they all recently left the family home in New Zealand!) We now have good experience in house sitting, we are very responsible people, and would treat your home as we would ours, and the animals and garden would be treated the same. My wife is extremely house proud, and loves to potter about in the garden . She is an extremely organised person and she looks after the house and me very well! Kays Dad was in the 2000 Queens Honors List in New Zealand (R. J. SHARP ONZM, For services to Dairying), because he invented the herringbone milking shed in New Zealand in 1952. Only took 48 years to get recognised. We can provide good personal references. We are non smokers. Broadband or good internet access would be needed.

I have a family home with mum and siblings and a bunch of animals. I'm technically based in Sydney and spend my week editing and working from home which i belive makes me the perfect sitter. I'm a 39 year old, super career focussed, don't drink or party and have the utmost respect for others space and property.



My love for animals is authentically embeded in my life, i spend 3 months every year volunteering and rescuing dogs in Cape Town South Africa for a pro-life organisation called "Side Walk Specials".



If you have any questions or want to meet me in person i would be MORE than happy to arrange that!



Have a wonderful week and looking forward to exchanging hospitality experiences with your home and pets!



And you might get a couple of free portraits of your pet if i get the chance to take care of them :) i just cant help it.

I’m an experienced pet sitter. I’ve looked after many friends cats/dogs in the past in London and keen to get involved in pet sitting out here in melbourne.

Before arriving in Melbourne I was travelling/volunteering through India and Nepal.

I have only recently joined this website, so far I have completed one 10 day Cat sitting for two adorable cats. Both different personalities and I really loved my time looking after these cats, so super keen to get around and do more pet sitting for others.

I really love animals, particularly cats and would be very affectionate and loving towards your pets, I would certainly treat them as if they were my own!

I’m a non smoker, clean, tidy and would be happy to do other chores around the house such as gardening, watering plants and general house up keep. I would always treat your home as if it was mine.

I can arrange for professional references and/or personal references to be sent as well.

I have a working with children check card which ensures I don’t have a criminal record.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

I look forward to meeting many of your beautiful pets!

Cheers,

Louise
