Yvonne & Keith

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

We take great care in our own home and even greater care in someone else’s! We are a very well travelled retired couple in our mid fifties that love animals. We originally hail from the uk but emigrated to Australia in 2001 where we located to Noosa, Qld and brought up our (then) two teenage children. We have owned many animals including a pony, birds, (Particularly a blue and gold macaw), tortoises, small rodents and many cats and dogs, so have a lot of experience with animals.
Our daughter has just returned permanently to Australia after working in London, bringing with her a fiancé who has been relocated from his London office to Sydney. We feel we need to be in Australia full time now so we can enjoy family visits but still wish to move about, so house sitting is the perfect solution for our (ever) itchy feet. We have looked after many friends and family’s homes, often caring for their pets and keeping it maintained.
We have owned several businesses over the years, including manufacturing in China, a real estate agency, a grocery store and an auction room
My husband has also been a house builder and can turn his hand to most trades. We have built and refurbished many homes over the years. He likes gardening too and has been known to be quite green fingered! I am a clean queen and enjoy domestication. I love to read and enjoy exercise, including yoga and old school aerobics! My husband loves keeping up with world news and current affairs. We are both non smokers. We are a friendly, trustworthy and reliable couple that put our heart and soul into anything and everything we do.
We have lived both in cities and in the countryside and so are happy to house sit in city or rural locations.
I have downloaded profile photos but they have not appeared - I’m having great difficulty in publishing the images!!!! I am hoping to sort this out ASAP!
We can supply photos and various types of references if you are interested in having us look after your pets and certainly won’t regret it!

Katherine & Danika

  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

We are Danika and Katherine a couple from Melbourne, Vic and Liverpool UK respectively.

We have been living together for nearly 3 years and fawn over animals of all shapes and sizes. Katherine has regular dog walking clients around the Glen Eira area, and studies from home. Danika works full time as an Apprentice Chef in the city.

We have each grown up with family pets in the home from a young age and since returning to Melbourne in 2016, we have been loyal to two rescue/foster groups and have successfully rehomed kittens, cats and dogs.

We are experienced house sitters with a number of references for your peace of mind. We recently moved out of our Carnegie rental to actively put some money away to save. Together, we will respectfully take care of your home as though it was ours, and give infinite love to your furry family members.

Please reach out with any questions or queries.

  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore

Hello my name is Victoria, I am a Semi Retired 54 year old lady. I live in a Unit in Mosman and miss my home
that I lived in at Seaforth. All my darling pets are now in cat and dog heaven and we are not allowed pets in the unit where I live.

I have had a lot of experience in house sitting, lovely homes in Longueville, Seaforth, Mosman, Bellevue Hill, Rose Bay,
Point Piper and Kingsford. I am an extremely houseproud person, and keep an excellent household. I am a non smoker
and non drinker. Ex marathon runner, now a bushwalker/ medium runner.

I am fortunate that most animals like me and I feel the same about them. People have said " wow, minksie never comes to strangers and does that ? " I think I must have been a cat and a dog in past lives.

I am happy to give you any references upon request.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

Gosia & Sean

  • Sydney

Hello pet owners!

Sean and I have been together for over 4 years and are a happy and active couple. We have always loved animals and enjoyed taking care of them.

I adopted my first cat Netscape from the streets when I was 12 and not too long after adopted 3 more cats also from the streets. My whole life I was surrounded by 4 amazing little critters that I would show all of my attention to. I also have experience with birds because I had them in my summer home.

Sean has grown up with dogs his whole life. He loves the outdoors and enjoys taking his dogs for walks along the local area.

The both of us have lived together for a year and then quickly decided that we both miss the company of animals and that is why we have become pet sitters. We started off pet sitting for almost a year in Perth. Soon after we drove to Sydney where we were pet sitters for 10 months. After that we moved to Melbourne and looked after cats for 5 months. We then moved to Sydney and stayed there for over a year and continued pet sitting there.

At the moment we are in Melbourne and we are continuing our pet sitting adventures here!

Our experience has been amazing all over Australia. We keep in touch with the families and their pets and we plan on pet sitting and staying together for many years to come!

Please let us know if you would like to hear more about us and our experiences. We are also able to provide various references from families.

  • Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

Hi! I've looked after homes and beloved pets of families in NZ and more recently in QLD, Australia where it's been great to meet old and new friends who have required my services. I've looked after some chooks and their older guard dog of a sister in Mt Gravatt; I spent quality time with an old timer Golden retriever 'Max' on meds, gone jogging with playful labradors through to hanging out with territorial cats as their goldfish roomies look on. I love people and supporting what they love! Blessed travels to you and your family while I make sure there's plenty of creativity, responsibility, praise and water in the bowl:-) *Professional full time employee *Flexible *Adaptable *Looking for long & short term opportunities *Own vehicle *Police Check verified


  • Melbourne

Hi Happy Housesitters Community!

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

I moved from Sydney last June & have been House/Pet-sitting 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 and Cooper, 2 rescues we adopted when we lived in Mornington back in 2010. I miss them terribly & will adopt another rescue cat or dog when I settle in Melbourne.

Looking after Pets is certainly a perk of sitting. Getting to know their individual personalities and nuances is special. I’ve been lucky enough to have sat many different kinds of dogs and cats and a few chickens too.

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

I have pet sitting, personal, work references and a recent Police check available. I also have a editable Housesitting agreement 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 and 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


Paul & Pauline

  • WA


We are a retired couple and have been travelling and exploring (housesitting most of the time) for several years. We label what we do as slow travel and for the last year we’ve been in Broken Hill. But we are keen to get back out there and have resumed housesitting.
We are non-smokers and very quiet people. We are doing housesitting as a way to explore new places, meet new people and to have some quality time with animals when the opportunity arises. I (Paul) am a photographer and always welcome being in new places with new people and scenes to record. Pauline is using her time to explore drawing and painting and a little photography as her way of experiencing the new places we are continually discovering.

As mentioned above, we have been pet and housesitting for much of the last few years, both in England and here in Australia. Our housesitting references, as well as a couple of property references are listed on this site (some have been copied from other Housesitting sites we have been registered with over the years). Sharing our lives with animals is essential for us and we have cared for a great many in housesitting assignments as well as having had pets of our own in the past. During our housesitting lives we have cared for all shapes, sizes, and breeds of dogs, and many cats ranging from kittens and very timid rescued animals all the way to the ones who see themselves as ‘royalty’. Also, we have cared for a variety of birds as well as the odd lizard. We understand that each animal is a unique individual with its own specific needs, and we take the responsibility of caring for them very seriously. They are always our number one priority. We are very much ‘home bodies’, which means we are always there to provide security for your home and time for your pets.
In addition we have National Police Certificates which are available for sighting if required.
We look forward to hearing from you and if you need any more information from us, please contact us.
Thank you
Pauline and Paul


  • Sydney

I have extensive experience house sitting so I am competent and confident to take on most roles. Most of my experience is in Sydney but have done jobs in the Blue Mountains, Terrigal, Brisbane, Northen NSW/Byron, and the Gold Coast. I genuinely love animals and their company. Ps. I was a professional dog walker for a local company in Mosman too.


  • Brisbane, South Eastern


My name is Cheryl. I would like you to consider myself to take excellent care of you house/pets/pool/garden during your absence. I have extensive experience with looking after pools, garden, lawns having had them myself in the past. I have a Police Clearance (blue card) which is clean.

I am retired, a keen amateur photographer and a keen sewer. I am a non-smoker, active, lead a quite life, had a house until my children left home to lead their own lives so I have lots of experience looking after a house, gardens and pool.

Over the years I’ve had several dogs/cats/fish/birds so I’m happy to look after your loved ones, your home, garden and pool if you have one whilst you’re away. 

I have done various housesits in the past and finished a 12 month housesit in early March 2017. Since then I’ve been on the Sunshine Coast and looking after several hundred canaries, alpacas, llamas, chickens, fish, dogs & cats and have asked to re-housesit on several occasions. 

As a previous house owner I am used to caring for a property and dealing with issues that may arise. 

I am a very experienced Housesitter with excellent references available on request. I haven’t attached them here as they contain names, addresses and phone numbers and I respect their privacy. 

I have enjoyed all my housesits and look forward to Housesitting for you.

i look forward to hearing from you.


Ngaire & Adam


We are a close knit, fun loving little family of 3. Myself, Ngaire, I'm an Osteopath and own my business so need only be in the clinic 1 day a week, or sometimes not at all, and the rest of the time I can work from home. My husband, Adam, who works for a pharmaceutical company, and our 5 year old daughter Maeve, who just loves life, people, nature and animals.

In March 2018 we took off on an adventure around Australia for 6months, however we decided to rent our Essendon home out before then, and house sit full time for 7 months. Initially we thought we would return to our Essendon home following our trip, but we fell in love with house sitting! Meeting some wonderful people and forming great bonds with pets was a bonus we hadn't anticipated, and so we have chosen to continue house sitting indefinitely. We are non smokers, who take pride in our home and possessions, and care for anyone else's home like we would our own. We understand how it feels to trust someone else with your home and pets, and we take the responsibility seriously.

We are happy to care for your home, keep it neat and clean, do extra little jobs and you can trust that your house will be in the same great condition you left it upon your return. We love to explore as a family, and enjoy walking dogs or taking them out and about. We would be pleased to care for any animal in whatever they need.

Maeve is a gentle and kind 5year old who understands appropriate behaviour with pets of all types, and is very used to the house sitting lifestyle and the behaviour that is required. Obviously, we need to care only for animals who are comfortable with children, so that we make sure she is safe. She also understands caring for other people's property and is no problem in a home that hasn't been "child proofed". You won't even notice she has been there!

Previous house sitting roles have involved us caring for 3 dogs at a time, 4 cats and multiple fish in one house in the heat of summer. We are up to the challenge! We are also fine, with just a small dog who loves a cuddle, we are pretty flexible! Our experience also extends to chooks, rabbits and turtles.

We have looked after a number of homes with both pools and spas and are happy to maintain these for you with appropriate instruction for your specific requirements. Maeve is a very strong swimmer for her age, being used to both pools and and the ocean. Although we of course supervise her at all times, we have no concerns about her in a property with a pool.

As a family we love spending time exploring new places, having coffee with friends and just being together. We get out and about but also enjoy time at home so your pets would have company too. We love spending time at the beach, or catching the train to the city for an explore, and of course if there is a great park around, we love a play! We are a footy loving family, though we don't agree on our teams ;-).

We would love to hear from anyone looking for down to earth, relaxed but hard working people to care for your house or pets. We are open minded for any types of property.

We have police checks and references available (you will find many attached to our profile). Please feel free to contact us with any questions at all that you may have. We are so excited for the next chapter and the variety that house sitting brings and look forward to hearing from you!

Hello, I am Clare, 65, retired ABC radio broadcaster and experienced house/pet-sitter of many years (see references for details). Although I have cared for a delightful variety of farm and domestic animals in the past, my preference these days is to care for cats, or other, not too demanding or boisterous animals.

I lead a simple life - studying (French language and literature), walking, swimming and seeking to maintain good health in aesthetically pleasing environments within 10 mins of the sea. To this end, I alternate between the coastal areas of Tasmania (Oct - May only) and mainland Australia, often returning to the same homes at the ongoing request of their owners.
I have numerous references and my referees are happy to be contacted personally.

Kristin & John

  • Melbourne

We are an energetic couple who have grown up with many different types of pets and absolutely LOVE all animals! Currently, we own 1 small dog with a BIG personality- a peekapoo named Knox (will not be present during house sits). Knox brings us a lot of joy and we hope to adopt more animals in the future but until then, we would love to care for your pets!

In terms of personality, we are extremely clean and organized as well as very reliable. We maintain a healthy, active lifestyle and are both non-smokers. Traveling, meeting new people, and experiencing new cultures is a huge passion of ours and is really what spiked our interest in house sitting. Our other hobbies include outdoor activities, photography, trying new cuisines, and of course, enjoying a nice glass of wine on our deck when the weather is nice.

We have lots of experience with both house and pet sitting for a variety of people in multiple countries. We would love to be your next sitter!

  • Geelong, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

Hi! My name is Megan and I'm a reliable 33-year-old school teacher now currently completing my Master's degree. I have 18 months of house sitting and pet sitting experience in places with and without animals. The animals I have looked after include dogs, cats, chickens, worms and fish. I am a country girl, growing up with many animals including dogs, chickens, guinea pigs, cows, sheep and sometimes a horse or two.

I have been house sitting on the Bellarine Peninsula for the past year now and am absolutely loving this beautiful part of the world! I'm very flexible and adventurous so I'm happy moving around and trying new things. I am an active person who LOVES dogs (and other animals) but haven't been able to get my own yet, so I love the idea of house and pet sitting.

Additional references and police check information can be provided. If you have any questions about me please feel free to get in contact!

Fiona & Bruce

  • Bendigo, Macedon Ranges


We are a mature couple who have just recently married and are wanting, and looking for, a new place to call home, which we hope will be a property with animals such as alpacas, ducks, chickens, dogs and maybe a pony in the near future.

In the meantime, we thought it would be a fun and interesting way to look at different areas by house sitting instead of committing to one rental property and area.

Between us we have had experience with horses, dogs, cats, birds and fish.

We have both owned properties maintaining gardens and lawns of our own and we both really enjoy being outdoors.

To us a tidy and clean house brings peace, harmony and comfort so your home would be treated as our own and we would care for it as if it was.

We are non-smokers and can provide references if requested,

Please call or email to have a chat, see if we are who you are looking for.

Kind regards,
Bruce and Fiona

I am an experienced house sitter and animal lover who treats people's home and pets as if they were my own. I am always respectful, clean, and will shower your animal with so much love. Yes, I'm one of those people that will run up to your dog on the street for a pat :p I own my own environmental business which I operate online, so work from home which means lots of walks and cuddles for your pets. I live a quiet and peaceful life and love nothing more than relaxing with a good book. I always grew up with animals, and have experience looking after dogs, cats, rabbits, birds/chickens & turtles. I own a toy poodle named Lola who is the most intelligent, loving little girl. Lola stays at the family home whilst I do any housesits that don't allow outside pets, so no problem if your pet prefers their own company. I am a competent gardener if I may say so myself, and love looking after plants. I'm a non smoker, vegetarian who lives a healthy lifestyle. I'm single, so you can rest assured that it will just be me in your space. I have multiple positive references from previous sits available upon request. Happy to meet up for a chat! :)

How I help you have a stress free time away from home...

- I keep your animals in the routine they are accustomed to so that they don't fret whilst you are away.
- I'll send you photos of our adventures together and send as many updates as you require.
- I will bring your mail in, water your plants, and keep your space spotlessly clean.
- I have multiple positive references so you can rest assured that your space is in good hands.
- Most of all I am a massive animal lover who adores cuddles, so your pet will honestly feel so secure and loved whilst you are away.
- I do pet sitting and house sitting professionally full time, each sit means a lot to me, and I consider it a great honour to look after your space & your pets.

Can't wait to meet you and your fur babies :)

  • Syd. Upper N Shore, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs, Grampians

We would welcome the privilege to care for your pets and look after your home while you are away! Housesitting provides us with the opportunity to regularly spend time in my husband's home town of Melbourne as well as see other parts of this beautiful country.

A little about us... I (Jodi) enjoy reading, baking, films, swimming and bushwalking. My husband Andrew LOVES his AFL, anything remotely associated with sport and great coffee. While Zoe, our daughter aged 8, loves dancing, swimming and sparkly dresses!

We live on the Hawkesbury River, north of Sydney and love to housesit for our holidays. This has enabled us to meet wonderful people, explore new areas and make lots of fury new friends! We come to Melbourne regularly to visit family and friends, so most of our housesitting experience has been in and around the suburbs of Melbourne. We have experience in caring for dogs, cats, fish and are open to expanding our pet repertoire. We become quite attached to the animals we are caring for by the end of a house sit and it can be a little sad to leave.

Our family is clean, tidy and very respectful of the homes and property of the families we housesit for. I enjoy leaving a sparkling clean house, fresh flowers and a home cooked meal for the family to return to. We are also happy to collect your mail, put the bins out and water your garden. We don't smoke, have completed police checks and can provide references from happy home/pet owners we have house sat for.

Tara & Theo

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

We are a married couple in our 40s, animal lovers, well house trained and non-smokers, quiet, and respectful. We recently returned to Sydney after many years living in Europe and thought that housesitting would be a great thing to do whilst we work out where we want to live and what life in Australia might look like - and pet sitting gives us our animal fix!

Tara is originally a Sydney girl, a creative director and professional artist, with a studio in Mosman. Theo is a lighting designer for international music events. He is also a hobby hanyman - wonderfully practical and adept at fixing things.

We are animal lovers, with plenty of experience in pet sitting. In London we became a kind of dog holiday hotel for people to leave their fur babies with when they went away. The dogs became part of our family and we loved it! Long walk and lots of cuddles. We have also been aunty and uncle to a few cats as well.

Pet sitting is our way of getting an animal fix - we aren't able to get pets of our own as we both travel in long chunks for work. (It usually takes a long time for us to go for a walk as we stop and chat to every dog/cat that we pass. Both of us grew up with dogs and cats and love having them around.)

We are very happy to be around all kinds of animals, and will give them plenty of attention. We have experience in babysitting dogs, cats, chickens and fish.

We have green thumbs and are avid gardeners, happy to keep a garden maintained. We have a home with a garden in London that has been our pride and joy. We are both capable and practical, adept at looking after large and small homes and have experience in maintaining a pool.

References are available and we both have police check certificates.

We welcome a get together over a cuppa so that we can meet and discuss.

I work in IT and Jan is a hospital administrator.
We like travelling and visiting different places both in Australia and abroad.
We have never been a house sitter before but thought we would try it out. We are building a new home in Macedon region and would like to experience living in the area before we move here in 12 months time.
We are in our fifties, non-smokers, clean and tidy people.
We can supply character references if required.


  • ACT

Experienced, Resourceful, Clean, Peace of Mind,

Hi there,
I've been booked for all of 2019.
I'm a mature, quiet, security conscious, long term ACT resident and a non-smoker, non-drinker.

At the moment, I am considering longer term housesits (6 weeks +) for 2020 with either no pets or the flexibility to take short breaks - I should be available to take 2020 pet bookings later in 2019.

PERSONALITY AND HABITS - I'm competent, diligent, fit, healthy, sensitive, discreet, kind and absolutely respectful.
Light user of appliances and energy.
Established habit of not wearing shoes inside, using surface protectors and like to keep a clean house.
A diligent and prompt communicator should you have any issues while you are away, and I'm proactive on house/pet issues.

EXPERIENCE - I've been housesitting since 2017 and experience is building fast:

Pet/animal minding experience includes cats (4), Labradors (2), Jack Russell, Fox Terriers (pair), Labradoodles (pair), Maltese Spaniel, Moodle, Border Collie, Kelpie, fish, turtles, and cows.

Indoor plant care - peace lilies, cyclamens, maiden hair fern, philodendron, ribbon plant, orchid, small trees - this mainly consists of watering and I use a water meter to monitor optimum hydration and avoid over/under watering.

Mail collection and review (where requested) and liaison for items requiring attention.

Package tracking and pickup.

Experience with alarm systems.

Issues successfully addressed for house owners:
Post-operative pets with low appetites, preventative wild weather measures, leaking plumbing, tree root and powerline issues, blackout related issues, mice detection, wasps, construction monitoring, security and fire system issues, daylight saving changes, car battery charging.

EXTRA SKILLS - I can set up portable camera monitoring (with my own equipment, for medium to long term assignments) - it has been quite beneficial to clients for many reasons.

I'm quite competent with technology, which has proven useful in housesitting.

MOTIVATION and OUTLOOK - I am continuing to housesit, in part because the feeling of making people assured and safe while away is rewarding, satisfying and meaningful to me.
And so it has taken on a professional sense to me which is also satisfying.

I sometimes work full-time (contract worker) and have a longer term aim to work from home - I would ideally like to develop a longer term relationship with you, and though I might not always be available, the more times I help in minding your home, the less work it is for both of us.

I have a lengthy list of great referees including local business owners who can be verified (websites etc).
Written references and contact details available before commencing a house sit.

I have available for viewing the most comprehensive police check available issued by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) on 19th August 2019.
Certificates issued by the AFP are printed on secure paper and have a number of security features listed here:
Please note that this and multiple additional identity documents are available for viewing together for as long as necessary, however for identity security reasons, I consider it a risk to copy them.
I will be as vigilant with your security as I am with my own.
I am financially secure and responsible for any unforeseen expenses that I incur at the property.
Contactable also on Viber, WhatsApp, Skype and Facetime.

Ready for a move but am uncertain where that will take me, I've enjoyed house sitting in a range of locations getting a feel for the area.
Currently working from home, though usually visit clients one or two afternoons a week.
For the most part I enjoy exploring new areas on foot, though I do have a car as it is required for my work.
Love most animals of the furry kind, but do not currently have my own pet due to Landlord restrictions.
I am familiar with caring for dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and birds, having had my own pets in the past and helping extended family with theirs.
I look forward to caring for your house and pets in a manner in which they are accustomed.
I have been house sitting since July 2017. I am enjoying spending time with new furry friends and getting to know some new neighbourhoods.
I have a current Working with Children check, which includes regular police checks.

Our son and his wife are active house sitters, and whilst visiting them last year we had the privilege of doing our very first house sit over the Christmas 2018 break. We absolutely loved caring for animals again! Since then we have done weekend house-sits, and now since retirement are doing longer term stays. We are inspired to help others enjoy getaways. As house sitters we will shower your animals with positive attention, and care for your home and garden.

We are home bodies in our spare time, which means plenty of opportunities to dote on your animals and attend to their needs. We really love animals and have enjoyed in the past having a number of dogs and cats of our own. As our current living situation doesn't allow us to have pets, we very much enjoy opportunities to interact with others pets.

Carol is a wonderful housekeeper and Geoff is very handy with household maintenance and pool care.
