Kathy


Hi, my name is Kathy. I am a helpful, reliable and experienced house sitter that is keen to live in different areas of Melbourne. My situation is absolutely ideal for house sitting as I am single, lead a quiet life and my adult children have left the nest! My specialty is house sitting for longer periods which doesn't suit all house sitters - I'm flexible and work with my home owners to best suit their needs and always do what is best for them and their furry family members!
I'm a mature (fit and healthy at 49!), professional (I work as a corporate PA for an independent property developer) trustworthy lady who is a non-smoker and is very fastidious! I have been house sitting for business associates, friends and family for some time now and as such have many references that can be supplied upon request.
I have been a home owner for well over 25 years so am accustomed to looking after the family home and I cared for our pets over many, many years. I loved to get out and have a walk with our dogs and then come home for a snuggle with our cat and kittens! I looked after any maintenance issues as they arose and can be relied upon to care for your home. I am capable, sensible and can be trusted to deal with any situation that may arise in an appropriate and thoughtful way. My work allows me flexible hours so I can tend to your pets, the house and garden all really well.
I am very house proud; my homes are always clean and tidy! I will treat your home with care and respect at all times just as if it was my own. I look forward to hearing from you very soon and thank you for reading my profile!

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

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

I have lived in rentals for the past 10 years down in Melbourne and have decided to move back to my home town of Sydney.
I have always treated any rentals as I would my own home, with care and responsibility. I am conscious of the care and
security needed in keeping a house maintained. I have grown up with pets and consequently I believe that I would be able to take great care of yours. I am available for any length of
house sitting and can provide both personal and professional references, I would also be happy to obtain a police clearance.

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

  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. Upper N Shore, Brisbane, South Eastern, Hobart

Based in Brisbane, we are not permanently employed at present so can dedicate our time to maintaining your home and pets and even farm while exploring neighbourhoods and new areas. We consider ourselves meticulously neat and tidy, are non smokers and have our own transport. Cat sitting is not a preference, because of allergies.

  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

I'm an easy going, very relaxed country guy. I grew up in a little town called Mirboo North in Gippsland but moved to Melbourne to study when I was 18 and have been here ever since. I've been very fortunate to live with an amazing family who have now sold their house so I'm in need of a new place to live. Having moved house countless times in the past, I cannot think of anything I hate doing more, so house sitting presents a pleasant alternative. I’m planning to bounce from assignment to assignment for the next 24 months in attempt to save some money so if the initial sitting experience goes well I would be open to returning the next time you need a sitter. I'm currently living in a house in Ferntree Gully with a gorgeous cat and dog combo and will be devastated when I have to leave so a few new friends in need of some love would be amazing. During the day I work as a Used Car Salesman at Ferntree Gully Toyota and in my free time I work on my online nutrition coaching business. I'm not big on partying, I did plenty of that in my 20's, so when I'm not working I like reading, watching movies or playing pc games. I also love pets! They provide great company and companionship and a house is just too quiet without them. I grew up on a hobbie farm so I'm experienced at looking after cats dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, chooks, ducks cows, sheep, horses and of course goldfish. Finding a sitting assignment that has a dog that I could take on walks and or a cat that I could cuddle up with in the evening would be amazing.

References and Police check available on my profile but can also be emailed on request.

If you want to know anything else feel free to ask :)

Chloe & Bruno


  • Melbourne

Hi there,
My name is Chloe and I'm a Pilates instructor from Perth, my partner Bruno is an IT consultant from Belgium and we have been travelling Australia for the last six months and are going to be settling in Melbourne for work.

We are avid homebodies and both have beloved family pets, Chloe two cats and Bruno two energetic Jack Russels whom we miss very much! We enjoy walking everywhere and all outdoor activities but always make time for coffee and a good book.

We have both had experience housesitting in Belgium and Australia, at one time Chloe house sat for two months managing to maintain the survival of basically an indoor jungle and tame with love the ferocious street cat turned pet, Truman.

House sitting is perfect for us in this flexible time of our life where we are looking at exploring a new city and finding work and a new home. We are both shameless clean freaks and adore pets of all shapes and sizes, we hope to be the perfect fit for you and care for your home during your time away.

We can offer references upon request and would love to meet for an interview anytime.

Hopefully hear from you soon!

Christine


  • Rest of ACT, Sydney

I've been full-time house sitting since November 2014 and the lifestyle of the urban nomad is still suiting me very nicely. 4 yrs into my housesitting journey. My clients are very happy with my home and pet sitting services and are now repeat clients who refer me to their friends. I have my police check and references and contact phone numbers for my referees are available on request.

I know pets are often called furkids and the comparison between children and pets is the same. Each has its own unique personality and, of course, all with something special to love. Perhaps for me they are like furgrandkids - I get to love and spoil them when I have them and then I can hand them back. (I'm expecting my first real grandchild in April this year 2016!)

A bit about me – I am a mature single professional business woman with a mobile business I can take with me anywhere (I am a life coach and coach by phone/Skype). I hold CPA (Certified Practicing Accountant) qualifications. I am well known in the Toastmasters world having earned my Distinguished Toastmaster status and I'm still enjoying developing my communication and leadership skills. I am a non-smoker, houseproud, clean, friendly and tidy.

My preference is for smaller pets, either cats or dogs, birds, fish (no reptiles or rodents please).

If you’d like to meet with me I can be reached on my mobile phone.

Natasha


  • Bendigo

Hello house owners and holiday seekers!

My name is Natasha and I am in my late 20's and am saving up to buy my first house! I have returned to full time study, part time work and am super motivated, borderline OCD with keeping everything organised and also love to cook nutritious meals and keep active. I value my health and well being and thus, am a non smokers and rare drinker. I have completed a couple of months house sitting in Bendigo. Both houses had two beautiful dogs each which I absolutely loved caring for. I love ALL dogs (of any shape, size and breed!) but have more than enough room in my hearts to care for other pets too! I am available from late Jan, 2019.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

  • Sydney, Darwin, Bris. Northern suburbs, Bris. Southern suburbs, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast, Mackay & Whitsundays, Hobart, Launceston, Devonport, Melb. Inner suburbs, Perth, S. Western

We have sold our lifestyle block, dream home and animals, preferring to travel and the good company of new friends. We are currently undecided about our final destination. We resigned from our jobs in November 2015 and have spent the last 18 months or so travelling the world and house sitting. We have enjoyed the hospitality of many kind, like minded people across the world, leaving wonderful memories and enjoyed finding our way in new lands and communities.We love life, people, animals, good wine, good coffee, good food and great company.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We very much look forward to hearing from you.

Police checks and additional references are available on request.

I'm George and I've owned and/or pet sat cats, dogs, birds, guinea pigs, fish, snails and chickens. I pet and housesit full-time to settle back into and explore Sydney after years overseas. I love the variety of animals and houses, the adventure, exchange and savings.

Having been a home owner and had pet and house sitters myself, I know how you want to find your animals and home when you return... at least as well and good as you left them. I am mature, responsible and reliable, a frugal user of electricity and water, clean and tidy, and a quiet neighbour. I have a Masters degree and have been a teacher for over 30 years and now do that casually. I am healthy and a non-smoker.

I am open to all lengths of stays close or quickly accessible to the Sydney CBD. I have a Working With Children Check number, national Police clearance and references listed on the this site. I speak Spanish if your animals prefer and like to send you updates including photos while you are away, if you like that too. :-)

  • VIC

Hi there, thanks for taking a moment to look at my profile. I'm a 52 year old, not a 20 something experimenting with travel. I've made a very conscious decision to be a nomad, taking in variety of place, people and purpose wherever I can. I'm primarily in startup mode with my new small business...a supplier of digital business cards (yes, they're a thing !) and I'm into my second year, having survived the all important first year (www.mysmartcardsite.com) I'm lucky to have two great kids (young adults). I choose the travel life and I've gotten rid of most of my possessions. My car, computer and clothing are pretty much all I own. I'm very comfortable with hard work having owned my own 80 acre property in Tassie for 5 years, off grid, organic vege garden, goats, dogs, chicken, cat, geese and the odd snake or two. Along with the wedge tail eagles. I'm happy around animals of all types and very fit. I have no 'needs' except wifi and fresh water. If you can house me, and command me to meet your needs I'd love to take care of your precious space, animals and interests, for as long as you require. Let's start a conversation. Regards Adam 0411 367 890

I have 3 adult children who have all been successful in there own right. As a family we have always had pets, dogs, cats, birds, fish various small rodents. My last home was 4 bedrooms/ 3 bathrooms with a pool on approximately 1/4 of an acre. I realise your property and pets are most important to you and will endeavour to take great care of them. I hope this information is useful, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I have police clearance and character references for your perusal.

23 November 2017 To whom it may concern Re: Monica from Margaret River as house sitter As you are aware leaving one’s home and pets in the care of someone you don’t know is rather daunting, risky and worrying. Monica house sat for us from 2-20 November 2017 and I was delighted with the care she took of our dog and our home. I returned to find a well exercised happy dog, the house looking immaculate, that garden watered, the sheets washed, beds made up with fresh linen, and vases filled with flowers from the garden. I was delighted. I would not hesitate to recommend Monica as a mature, reliable and conscientious house sitter and would be very happy to be contacted to verify this reference. I would also not hesitate to ask her to house sit again if she is available next year.

  • QLD, Melbourne, Bendigo, North Eastern, North Western, SE Vic, Geelong, Grampians, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd, WA

We arrived from the States in the 70’s, recruited to teach, and loved it so much we stayed! We are responsible, reliable, non-smokers and will look after your home in the same manner that we have looked after ours.
We have sold our large house (downsizing from 2 hectares to two bedrooms) and are now retired. We are great walkers and love all animals, having had many over the years.
We have house sat in the past (in Ashgrove, Qld. looking after the lovely Lola, two year-old poodle as well as Lucy in Mitchelton and two schnauzers in Fitzgibbon in 2016, 2017 three lovely little dogs in Forest Lake, Gizmo the cat in Carindale and the schnauzers again in Fitzgibbon, all references below). We are happy to be flexible with your dates. We have used house sitters when we have travelled. We understand how invaluable a good house sitter can be. We'd love to look after your precious pets and would treat your house with the respect that we would hope a housesitter would treat ours. Available for Facetime interview if requested. We hope to hear from you at your convenience. Thanks for the opportunity. Mary and Wayne
Police checks, references are available.

Brittany


  • Brisbane

Hi, I'm a non-smoker, full-time employed and looking for an alternative to renting while my fiancé is working away for 6+ months.
I love animals and would cherish the opportunity to look after your pet! My work hours are somewhat flexible, so I am able to adjust to whatever is required for each individual stay.

I am organised, clean and most of all responsible. I do enjoy peace and quiet, but I am quite active and would be more than happy to go over and beyond for those pets that need extra walks etc.

I am available for any length of house sitting, however longer stays are preferred. I can provide references both personal and professional (I do house-sit currently by word-of-mouth and would be more than happy to put you in contact with current returning customers). If you require a police clearance let me know and I will obtain one for you.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Chantal & Job


  • Sydney, Central Coast, North Coast, South Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast, Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. NW suburbs

Hi there,

We are Job and Chantal, an active and happy couple in our mid twenties who are exploring the world together! We met each other while travelling and are already house sitting for a while in Melbourne now :) For us it’s a great way to meet the locals and to live the local Australian life and to have animals around us (what we loooooove) and the explore the great city of Melbourne.

At this moment we are only looking for a house sit in January 2019, the final housesit(s) before we leave this beautiful country and are going to explore New Zealand together. Job is working fulltime in all suburbs of Melbourne and I will finish a full time job at mid December and are now looking for some casual work till we leave Australia.

Just a bit more about us:
Job (23) grew up in a family with one older sister in the Southern part of the Netherlands. He grew up having dogs, cats, chickens and fish as pets. He started travelling in November 2016 and has seen a lot of countries in Asia and lives in Melbourne now since April 2017. He still has a sausage dog at home that he looks forward to see again when we come home!

I, Chantal (28) grew up in a family with 2 younger brothers in the Northern part of the Netherlands. We always had a lot of pets like dogs, cats, chickens, fish, hamsters and birds. I also did a lot of horse riding and shared the care of my own horse with my aunt. When I lived in the Netherlands, I lived in my own apartment and had 2 cats for several years that I took care of. Unfortunately I needed to find a new owner for them when I started travelling in January 2017, but their new owner still sends me pictures now and then and they look very happy with their new owner.

We both quit our jobs for this trip. We worked full-time for several years and realized there was more for us in life. So we decided to give up all of our possessions and go and see the world! I already did some house sits in the region of Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne (references available!) and together we now already did a lot of house sits in Melbourne.

If you are looking for a house sitter in Melbourne, we would love to hear from you and have a coffee and meet! Just send us a message and we'll be in touch.

We have current references and Police Checks available and we promise, you won't regret taking us into your home and taking care of your pets.

Hope to see you soon!

P.s. the animals on the pictures are not travelling with us.

To date, I have cared for over 150 animals including a variety of dogs, cats, miniature horses, chickens, fish, guinea pigs, goats and even a pair of emus!

Elli


  • Melbourne

Hi!
My name is Elli, nice to meet you. If you are looking for someone to tend to your pets or garden while you are away, then I hope I can help! I don't have any pets yet because of my love for travel so I am limited to vicariously parenting animals when my sister is away. She has two mischievous cats and a gorgeous Britney Spaniel. I love to take her to the park to play with other dogs and then enjoy a latte on the way home. It's a great motivator to get some fresh air and exercise.

I teach Yoga a couple of times a week and do some casual work in Venue Operations. Aside from these commitments I have a lot of free time for looking after pets.

I am a responsible, mature, 34-year-old, non-smoking Female. I will look after your pets and home as if they were my own.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.

Below is some feedback I have received from places I have stayed.

Thank you for reading!

Elli


"Elli looked after my two Huskies for 11 days while we were overseas. One of my dogs has special needs, but after meeting with Elli I felt confident they would be well looked after. Elli is friendly and an excellent communicator who I feel genuinely cared about my dog's welfare. Elli sent me regular updates while I was away, which was lovely. I returned home to a clean home and two happy dogs! I would not hesitate in recommending Elli for house/pet sitting." Simone, Happy Housesitters.

"Elli was a great guest! She's kind, polite, and easygoing. I'd definitely recommend her to other hosts." Spencer, AirB&B

"Its was very pleasant to rent out my room to Elli. She is kind, thoughtful, hardworking and my housemates enjoys her company a lot! And I think it was mutual! Thanks for staying here!!!" Sascha, AirB&B

House and Pet Sitting!

If you live in the south east suburbs and need a house sitter to look after your home and your special fur babies then I can help.

Summary: 30 years old, full license, reliable, non smoker, punctual, good communicator, non drinker (except for the occasional gin and tonic). Can supply both personal and professional references.

My name is Jessica and I’m available for house sitting as of October 6th as I’m currently finishing up a seven month sit. I work full time as a primary school teacher and love the outdoors. I have extensive experience with numerous animals, growing up on my families farm. I also have extensive experience with horses as I compete in dressage.

I would prefer a minimum of a week long stay, though I’m trying to house sit as much as possible while saving for my first house so the longer the stay the better.

As your house sitter, I promise to:
- Leave it cleaner than I found it
- Change and wash all sheets and towels before I leave
- Communicate clearly on matters that are important (animal health, utilities emergency etc) but otherwise leave you to enjoy your holidays in peace
- Ensure your fridge and pantry are stocked with essential groceries for your return
- Follow any instructions you leave with meticulous attention to detail

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

I'm a reliable, considerate & tidy, 41-year-old non-smoker. I began housesitting in May 2017 and I've built a solid reputation as a trusted house and cat sitter, see my profile for references, police check available also.


I've owned and sat all sorts of cats, including some with special needs like anxiety and illness, so I'm an experienced cat carer adept at administering feline medication in various forms if required.


I'm seeking sitting arrangements for 2019 and I have a preference for longer sits (minimum 1 month) in inner city areas. I would enjoy caring for your cat/s with the devoted affection of a true cat-lover. I can also assure my commitment to watering plants and maintaining a high standard of cleanliness.


I am employed full-time with the Victorian State Government and my office is located in the CBD.


If you are seeking a capable, considerate and respectful house sitter, please contact me. For reference, some of my previous cat-sits include: 



  • Ernie, Mia & Lilly in Northcote, (Ernie required twice daily medication for a heart condition);

  • Celeste, a shy, sweet British Blue recently rescued from a breeding farm, in Hawthorn;

  • Little Man, affectionately nicknamed 'The Voice', in Heidelberg (daily anxiety medication);

  • Miss Goblin, a delightful black puss with the shiniest fur (she insists on being brushed twice daily) in Fitzroy;

  • Gatsby the Bengal & Aida the Maincoon in Heidelberg; and

  • Rambunctious Russian Blues, Moscow & Sputnik in Richmond.

Lynne & Juliet


  • Upper Hunter Valley, Rockhampton

From December to March each year we stay at our home in Rozelle, Sydney, with my partner's adult children so when we both return it gets a bit cosy. When in Sydney I miss the family dogs back in England so much we often go down to the Callan Park beach to swim with the dogs there and get our fix. Then last year it suddenly occurred to me to Pet Sit. My own children are back in England so from March to December I divide my time between them, the grandchildren, dogs and cats ( See pic above!) and having a bit of peace away from it all in our home in rural France. My youngest daughter now lives in Freshwater so things are getting even more complicated.

We both therefore understand and appreciate the value of family and home life and the balance between that and the enriching experience of travel.

I grew up in Yeppoon, Queensland and went to UNSW in Sydney where Dale and I first met, before returning to England to work in the theatre. I eventually had a large family and I became a teacher. My first job was as a kennel maid for Guide Dogs and my second was as a Veterinary Assistant. Dale is an original Balmain boy and has been a journalist for most of his life. We have both had dogs and cats our whole life and occasionally birds, fish, and hamsters. Once the children were grown we began our travels once more, Dale and I renewed our friendship and now we have homes in England and France as well as Sydney

Last January we enjoyed two weeks House Sitting two delightful Westies also in Rozelle, accompanied by my youngest daughter Juliet and her boyfriend Joe who are now living in Freshwater. This year I would like to find a house near them rather than cramp their style as well as their unit.

Dale and I have a healthy, wholesome, energetic lifestyle and can do most things around the house that need to be done. Also Joe's an electrician so I have instant access to practical technical local help if ever there was need. Dale has had beautiful homes in Balmain and we now have houses in Cheshire, England and in France as well so we both love gardens and know how to maintain and care for both houses and plants as well as pets.

The most important aspect to any housesit is your pets' safety and health and the keeping of a familiar routine, to ensure their happiness and freedom from separation anxiety. I would honour their unique qualities, likes, dislikes and foibles and respect whatever rules you need me to follow, no matter how big or small. I would give your precious family pets all the love and care and fun that we shower upon our own family pets and in doing so I hope to give you complete peace of mind while you are away from them. I will enjoy keeping you updated on their day's fun and antics - and I will especially love to see your joyous homecoming.

My name is Rose and I am a mature age PhD student. I am currently living between Sydney, Lismore and the Gold Coast while I complete a professional Doctorate researching early colonial history (Sydney and Parramatta). My husband and dog live on a sheep farm in the northern tablelands of NSW and our children are married with lives of their own. Between us we have 5 granddaughters who we adore.

The reason I do house-sitting is because I love animals and miss my own. I get much pleasure caring for beautiful pets during my time in their life and it is lovely to receive unconditional love while doing my research. I enjoy the new experiences house-sitting gives me and have been inspired by some of the lovely environments I have stayed in. One of the benefits is making lots of new friends and I now have regular house-sitting appointments.

About me, I have always been a home owner, do not smoke and am extremely clean and tidy. I am also very security conscious. I am not into parties and take very good care of the houses/apartments where I stay. I have references and a Police clearance for your consideration.

I am happy to chat with you and also meet in person to say hi to your pet/s and allow you the opportunity to discuss your needs and requirements.

Thanks kindly Rose
