Hi there

My name is Ailsa and I am a 49 year old full time professional managing 2 surgeons rooms in the Inner City. Having been through a recent separation house sitting has been a great alternative to renting and trying to conserve my funds to buy my own home again for future security.
I love the company of animals, and have had my own dogs and cats so not a problem looking after others - I love my walks and the outdoor so if dog walkies are required that is not a problem.
I have had my own home and very house proud, reliable and honest. I enjoy my own space and quiet times at home. I am a non smoker andhave excellent reference
I am a very honest, reliable and tidy person and most of all I love my own space and quiet times at home. I am Non Smoker and have excellent references.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards Ailsa..

We are seasoned House sitters who love love animals and will care for your home as if it were our own. Our little Moodle, Chevy, travels with us. We are both non-smokers.

We have done house sitting on and off since 2011 - one of which was a long term 2 ½ year house sit - written reference attached. We also have the contact details of other couples we have house sat for and are happy to pass on these details.

Having a suitable place to park/store our Caravan would be appreciated.


Hi there! My name is Erin (26, female) and I've been living in the Inner West for the last seven years (born and raised in the Blue Mountains). I've recently moved back to the Blue Mountains to save a bit of money and have done a lot of house sitting for people at my office and their beautiful pets!

I'm currently working in fundraising for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, based in the Sydney CBD, and would appreciate any opportunity to be closer to work.

I would take great care of your home (references below) and I love going for walks in the evening- always looking for a furry companion to come with me. But of course, one who enjoys purring and hanging out on the couch is just as great.

Drop me an email or give me call, happy to meet for a coffee or a house visit :)

We will have our own transport and would look after and cherish your home and pets as if they were our own. References and Police Check can be supplied on request. We really look forward to a response.

Lisa & Matthew

  • Melbourne

We are two 32 year old career driven professionals, who are new to house sitting. We're wanting to save for our own property and thought we would try this. In the meantime we would love to look after your property and pets. We're very houseproud, clean and responsible people from north east country Victoria. We are non-smokers and animal lovers as we grew up on a large property surrounded by them. Happy to meet and discuss any further questions/details.

Thank you.

We will provide police checks, rental and employment references upon request.


  • VIC

Hi, my name is Michelle. I'm a quiet person, single and a non-smoker with no dependants. I like to meet friends for coffee or just hang at home. I enjoy writing music, reading, gardening and oddly I am house proud. I can tell the difference between your non-stick frypan and your ordinary frypan AND know the difference between glass and crystal AND the difference between a weed and a plant. Sounds silly, I know, but its the little things.

I have had pets all my life and love animals so if you have a pet/s, I have the energy and love to care for them no matter what their requirements are and I'll also let you know how its all going if you would like me to.

Everybody's home is different and if you have special requirements for your home I will happily take care of this. Rest assured your precious belongings will be respected and cared for.

I don't throw parties, or make a habit of having people come over at all hours. I am conscious that it is your home, I am a guest, and you wouldn't want anyone traipsing through.

I have a drivers licence and can provide an Australian Police Check and references if you would like.

It would be a real privilege to look after your home so please, drop me a line or call and I will be happy to answer any questions that you have.


  • Hobart

Dear house owners, I am pretty sure you are looking for a really clean, tidy and reliable sitter to look after your house and property. Well, you have found the right person :)

I am a German female, 38 years old and was working as an assortment assistant at the no.1 drugstore company in Germany for the last 16 years before I left. Since the end of February 2017 I am a hospitality student at TasTAFE in Hobart and my studies there will continue on for two years. My goal is to attain my Advanced Diploma of Hospitality during that time. After that I want to go further and study at UTAS for the Bachelor of Business Administration. I visited Tasmania during a 6-month sabbatical in 2015 and got to feel very at home here. My parents (mother British, father German) actually met in Australia but they never made it back there later on.

I love Tasmania and would like to stay here so after finding out that my only realistic option to do so means getting a new qualification, that is what I am doing now. As international students unfortunately have to pay very high course fees I now am looking for a way to live in Hobart without having to also pay a lot of money for rent, so house sitting is the answer. As I am a very clean and reliable person I think that house sitting is the perfect solution for both of us.

Your house will be looked after in the best possible way and I love animals so would be happy to look after your pets. I was doing house sitting in Germany for the last 9 months that I stayed there and have been doing it ever since I arrived here end of February. So if you need references I can give you the contact details of at least two parties you can call and ask how content they were with me :) I am sure I am a great candidate for you because I would look after your house, your animals and everything else the same way as I have been looking after my own all my life.

I do not smoke, very rarely drink any kind of alcohol and am not into drugs or partying. I am a very friendly and quiet person and very easy to get on with. I think your neighbours would like me!

So if you are planning on going away for a longer (or even shorter) period of time from October 2017 onward, I would be really happy if you could contact me.

Thanks for your trust and giving me a chance!


  • Melbourne, Macedon Ranges, North Eastern, North Western, Gippsland

I am a qualified dog trainer using ‘positive’ methods for nearly five years. I love animals and have had plenty of experience taking care of them, for example, I have work experience caring for pets at a cattery and dog kennels. As a bonus I can offer behavioural training services for your domestic pets for free.
I have also looked after horses and sheep. I lived on a rural property for 7 years working at a private sanctuary where my animal duties included feed, medication and sanitisation for native wildlife in breeding programs and under Vet care. I also maintained fences, getting around on a quad bike. My current part-time work allows me to be at home most of the week and I can do this from anywhere with good mobile phone service and within a couple of hours drive to Melbourne for the occasional visit. I previously worked as a professional in science. I am a responsible, trustworthy, active female in my 50s. I do not partake in smoking, drinking or drugs and have no interest in partying.
Having owned a house myself I understand the importance of security and respecting peoples private spaces and will take good care of your home. I am very happy to look after your plants and mow the lawn. I have recently been living with Mum and renovating her property and I have a practical hand so I am also useful should the gutters clog up, a tap washer leak or a paling fall off the fence…
Now that my mother’s house is finished and sold, I am currently between homes and available to housesit from November 2016 and will certainly consider extended sits. I am looking for a home that would welcome me and my 6 year old highly trained and well socialised neutered Vizsla x Lab who is playful but mature, has no doggie smell and is beloved by my mother’s cats. He would love to cheer up your dog and offer security to your other pets. He is familiar with hoofed livestock and shows them respect. We can have them meet before you make up your mind.
I won’t use your phone unless for an emergency. I am clean and tidy and live lightly using minimal power and water. I can keep you in touch with your pets’ using Skype or send photos and videos. Referees available upon request.

We are a retired couple in our early 70s with our own home in Busselton
Our hobbies include cycling, golf, bushwalking, bridge, tai chi, bowls and our garden
We have always had animals (cats, dogs, birds and horses ) but made the decision after losing our last much loved german shepherd that she would not be replaced leaving us free to travel

A couple of years ago we sat a number of houses in Queensland whilst travelling. We enjoyed this and gradually extended it to 12 months
We are non smokers, reliable, house proud, have excellent references and a police clearance
House sitting is a way for us to enjoy other peoples pets without the long term responsibility.


  • Melbourne


I'm 56, currently single, non-smoking, quiet professional living in Kensington and working in South Melbourne. I just rented out my home and I'm looking to house sit for a short period, as this would allow me more time to find a new place without being rushed. My preference is to house sit in a low maintenance home in the inner suburbs of Melbourne and would love to care for a pet / pets. I'm very experienced with caring for high maintenance cats, as I owned a (Persian) cat Hugo, who sadly passed away 2 years ago at the age of 15. I'm less experienced with dogs, as I've never owned one and only ever looked after a house once before which was home to a small Jack Russell. I've lived in my own home for more than more than 30 years, but have had house sitters look after my house and Hugo on quite a few occasions, so I know what's required. I am a responsible, reliable and considerate person, and would take excellent care of your property and pets. At this stage, I am available from 21st May 2017 to 15th July.

Katherine & Luke

  • Sydney

We are currently in saving mode and have had completed numerous house sits over the last few years and found it enjoyable and looking to help out more people.

We both work in Sydney but are commuting from Wollongong so the odd house sit certainly helps us break up the commute.

Katherine is the brains of the operation when it comes to animals, being a vet nurse for the last 7 years and currently works at Small Animal Specialst Hospital. She is also a certified dog trainer and has previously run puppy pre-school classes as well.

I (Luke) love my sport (so much so I had to go and get a job in sport) and has grown up with dogs and loves meeting and playing with new four-legged friends especially taking them out for a walk.

We have a very well (probabaly too well) looked after 2.5 year old Cavalier named Penny. Although she misses us, she is very well looked after by family if we are away.

Together we've house sat since 2013 at various places across Sydney including Coogee, Maroubra, Canterbury, Glebe, Clovelly, Redfern, Randwick and Lindfield.

We're tidy people, and like to make sure we spend as much time as possible with the animals we look after - Katherine wouldn't have it any other way!


  • Melbourne

Hello there,
My name's Jordan and I am a 24 year old female from Greensborough.
I am currently on the search for properties/ a property to house sit while my partner and I save to purchase our first home.
We are both extremely responsible, very tidy, non smokers, work full time and have previous experience house sitting/ pet sitting.
I have spent my life growing up with big and small dogs and have quite a lot of experience handling them. My parents who I live with at present own a 8 year old Jack Russell terrier who is a rescue dog. We saved him from the pound. We also have experience looking after cats, birds, fish, rabbits, guinea pigs and many other domestic pets.
My partner and I are both big animal lovers. We can provide a guarantee that we would be able to walk your dog as many times per week as required.
House sitting is something we believe we'd be able to do as best as possible. We will strive to give you complete confidence and ease while you're relaxing and enjoying your holiday. We are more than happy to send regular updates/ photos of your pets while you are away.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Many thanks,
Jordan and Sam

  • NSW, SE Vic, Grampians

Hi I am a female single 59 years old. I have a little dog whom I adopted in November 2015 at the ripe age of 13years and 2 months old, he is now 14.5 years and goes pretty much everywhere with me, he is a happy little dog and no trouble. I really want to travel and meet new people and explore new places. I see house sitting as a great way to do this. I am by nature a homebody but need to venture out as I no longer have any real committments. I am a very house proud person with integrity and honesty. I have a very practical approach to life, live a clean and healthy lifestyle though I am not as fit as I would like yo be but I'm workin on it!. I love the outdoors, have a variety of interests including: gardening (low maintenance- no mowing or heavy duty weeding), cooking, reading, photography, mosaic and being in nature.
I am able to supply a police check if required. I will look after your home and furry friends as though they are my own. I am looking for short to medium house sits during winter 2017 at the moment and preference is up north to escape cold Victorian Central Highlans winters. I would like to point out that I am not able to look after BIG ANIMALS including BIG strong dogs
Look forward to helping. Fay


  • Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Cairns, Melbourne

Hi! I'm a non-smoker, clean, considerate and reliable. I have been house sitting on and off for a long time and understand the anxieties house owners have about allowing a stranger into their home. I am happy to meet in advance to answer all questions and hopefully allay those anxieties. I enjoy taking care of small domestic animals, cats in particular. I look forward to hearing from you!


  • Melbourne

I am new to Melbourne and new house sitting. Having just obtained a job in Bulleen, I am looking to get to know the suburbs around before settling down in 2018. I am a mother of four grown up boys who all live in Perth. We have always owned dogs, cats, birds and fish. I am a home body when not at work. I am keen to meet you, your pets and assist with looking after your property. Please call me :)


  • Melbourne

Available for Melbourne:

I'm an EXPERIENCED (my 5th year), and WELL ORGANISED house sitter and a FUR KID LOVER... I'll CARE for your home and pets just as you do yourself, and follow the ROUTINES already in place. My GREEN THUMB will keep your greenery well maintained in your absence. You need PEACE OF MIND leaving your worldly possessions in the hands of a stranger.

I'm a photographer and I work from home, so furry friends get lots of company in the daytime, and your home is secure too. I'm a non smoker, and LOVE to arrive to and leave behind a clean and tidy house.

The trick to a great house-sit is:
1. laying out expectations from the start including animal care, cleaning, house instructions
2. having a good mutual vibe
3. communication from time to time during the sit

I've been sitting since 2012 and tend to get asked back as the years roll by! You can read my references from Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Berlin.

Please view my references, dates spreadsheet and short selfie video attached to my profile, or copy/paste these links in a new browser window:

And a quick selfie video to say hi:

I look for a home away from home. Let's see if I am suitable for your needs in Melbourne and surrounds, and if we are a good fit, so drop me a line or give me a tingle anytime.

  • Reduced Contact

I am loeoking to housesit on the Bellarine or in Geelong till mid August. I love cats and gardens and have had dogs of my own who all lived to an old age.
I have always owned my own homes, and have a healthy respect for others homes for that reason. I may or may not be working, because I contract for the Government, but would be looking after your place and sleeping there every night while you are away and possibly during the day while I am not working.
I have always had cats and dogs as well as chickens for 8 years.
I often farm sit for my sister where I care for 1 cat, 2 dogs, 2 turkeys, 2 geese, 2 ducks, 6 chickens, a rooster and 6 head of cattle.
I'm building my own brand new home just out of Geelong and currently wotking in Geelong
Therefore a closer proximity would be perfect. I am tidy and clean and love gardening.

Hi my name is Karen, I am a healthy, mature nurse with a young attitude (56yrs), looking for an alternative to renting. I have frequently housesat for friends, & have decided to join an Agency to broaden my contacts.
I am particularly keen to be in Melbourne over the AFL season as my son is playing & it would give me the chance to spend some quality time with him during the season, without "cramping his style", & to be present at some significant events.
I have great references from people whose homes & animals I have cared for, & a current police clearance, due to the nature of my employment. Housesitting appeals to me as I am able to provide a useful, cost effective service to others whilst saving money myself. I enjoy animals, and am a trustworthy, reliable, respectful, clean & organised nonsmoker. I love the company of animals, & being able to allow people to leave their beloved pets & home with peace of mind, to enjoy their holidays gives me joy. I would be happy to chat or arrange to meet up to discuss your requirements.


  • South Coast

I am taking time out to explore the country and find out where I want to stop. I am currently on the South Coast of NSW and loving it, so would like to spend more time here, but will consider house-site opportunities in other areas of the country. I have done some house-sitting and am happy to look after domestic animals and gardens, particularly vegetable gardens, but at 65, I cannot do heavy work any more. I have good tenancy references and leave any property in the condition I found it or better.

Although I am on the age pension, I also complete some writing contracts from home. This means I need a good internet signal, and preferably a connection.
