Offering PEACE of MIND!

I am a mature (and youthful) trustworthy woman and Mudgeeraba homeowner who understands the importance of knowing your home and animal friends are being well cared for in your absence.

Earlier this year, my two adult children and I travelled overseas. The trip was worry-free. Our cats and dog were all happy in their familiar home surroundings, with their needs attended to affectionately by a family friend.

My experiences as a teacher and executive, and my love of animals, equip me to fulfil housesitting roles with ease. You will return to your home as you left it. Your animals will be looked after with great care, and happy to update you while you are away.

I live most healthfully ( no tobacco, alcohol or drugs ) and enjoy Qigong, Pilates, meditation, walking, swimming and cycling.

I housesat on two occasions for a friend last year. Her dog, cat and I became inseparable. I look forward to future similar experiences. Cats and small dogs preferred.

I am available for short term housesitting -- weekends or for a period of up to two weeks. A quiet location within 30 minutes drive of Mudgeeraba is preferred. Excellent references are available on request. I look forward to chatting with you…….

  • Melbourne, Geelong

Hi, my name is chantal, I am a digital nomad / entrepreneur and have returned home to Melbourne for 6 months (feb/mar 2018) for business purposes and to visit family & friends and thought that house sitting is the prefect solution. After 15 years in advertising and marketing in melbourne I have left the corporate life to start my own business and combined my love for animals and design to produce contemporary pet product for modern living. I am an active 38 year old single female with loads of energy and a great appreciation for the great outdoors. I am an experienced pet / house sitter, considerate and house proud.

I have experience looking after pets great and small, house dwellers to adventurous, goofy to highly intelligent, sporty to lazy and I love love love all creatures great and small, they bring me so much joy! I also have a non-for-profit organisation that my friends (in the pet industry) I want to set up in the future which helps the elderly, disabled and others in financial crisis take care of their pets with financial and medical support.

  • ACT

Hi, I'm Dominika and I am looking for new experiences in my life. House - sitting is a great chance to meet people and explore Canberra and its' suburbs. I am friendly and easy going person, working with children. I have some active hobbies such as yoga, indoor climbing, and I also like some relaxing activities for example reading and coloring books.

I like animals and their company, I used to have hamsters when I was at high school growing up in Slovakia. I used to help my 89 year old neighbor to walk his dog in the mornings for over a year period of time.
Lately I have been looking after my friends' house while they were traveling in the USA, and that is how I combined those ideas.

I am looking forward to hear from you

Olivia


  • Melbourne

Hello house and pet owners!

My name is Olivia, I'm 27 years old and I'm looking to do some house and pet sitting around Melbourne. I've lived in share housing for many years as well as had multiple house and pet sit gigs along the way.

I absolutely adore cats and dogs but haven't been able to own my own as of yet due to share housing. If you happen to have a pet that is just an extra incentive for me!

I work on an ever changing schedule as I freelance, this means that I can be around as much or as little as I need to be. I'm mature, reliable, respectful and extremely clean and tidy.

Several references and contact numbers can be provided upon request, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions at all. I look forward to your messages!

Thanks,
Olivia


...Please note, I will be in Europe from 14th June - 16th July.

Meagan & ALBERTO


  • Melbourne

Hi we are Meagan and Alberto. We are a non-smoking couple in our early-to-mid 30’s, who will look after your home as you do. We are an excellent team and proud of living an efficient, clean and organised lifestyle. Meagan (30 years old) was born in Melbourne, and is a Health Promotion Project Officer for a community health service. Alberto (34 years old) was born in Rome, Italy, works as a Project Coordinator for a construction company. We have been together for 5 years living both in Italy and Melbourne. We have both grown up with pets (cats and dogs) and we do love, being outdoors and gardening. Meagan already has experience as a house sitter and Alberto coordinates holiday rentals in Italy and so he has a good understanding of property maintenance requirements. Meagan has a shorter working day, so will easily be able to take you dog for walks before and after work. On weeknights we generally like to stay home and cook. On weekends, we like to be outdoors, so weather permitted we’ll look to take your dog on an excursion. Our interests: all things italian, cooking, sport, movies, photography, camping, being outdoors and being with friends and family. We see house sitting as an activity that provides a mutual benefit to the homeowner and to the sitters. We will look after your home, garden and pets they way you would. We are house sitting to save money for a deposit on our own home, to experience various suburbs and communities across Melbourne and to demonstrate that there are different ways of living ie. a) with few possessions and b) with trust in people to look after your best interests without an exchange of money. We are most interested in house sitting roles for at least 3 weeks in duration. For any roles over 1 month we are happy to pay for our use of internet, electricity and gas. We believe this is a fair agreement. What we can provide: Police checks, House sitting, rental, personal and professional references. We are happy to meet you multiple time before you decide that we are the sitters for you. If you would like us to get to know your pets before you leave we’re happy to come over for a play. What we promise: To stay in regular contact with you while you’re away. We can send photo updates of your home, garden and/or pets; Skype is even an option. To do as you ask. Let us know how you do things at home, and we will continue to do them in the same way. We are quick learners and respect that you know what is best. To respond responsibly and appropriately to any unforeseen events, communicating with you along the way. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to hear more about us.

Sarah & Ross


  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. NW suburbs

We are a couple in our mid 30's and we have a 1920's Californian bungalow in Reservoir that is currently being renovated and extended. It's a major job (approx 8-10 months) so we have moved out for the duration and are house sitting. We've been house sitting since March and are really enjoying it. We've got sits locked in for a lot of the year already, but there are still some gaps we are looking to fill.

We are friendly, responsible, honest, clean and tidy and we take the responsibility that comes with house sitting very seriously. We are non-smokers and can supply references. We like the fact that house sitting is a win-win situation for both parties - the home owner has peace of mind that their house, pets and garden are looked after we get to save money, experience living in different places and enjoy the company of pets.

We both work full time Monday to Friday and outside of work we lead a pretty quiet life. Ross loves gardening and we both enjoy cooking. Sarah commutes by bike to the city every day for work and Ross plays indoor soccer once a week. We also enjoying hiking and camping when time permits.

We look forward to meeting you and looking after your house, pets and garden.

Alan


  • Perth

I welcome the opportunity to meet with you with a view to looking after your property whilst you are away.
I would fulfill your requirements including running my own very busy gardening business, so can happily ensure your garden thrives in your absence.
I am accustomed to looking after all types of animals, including farm animals and it is in my nature to ensure they are well looked after.

I am choosing to house sit as it allows me to rapidly grow my business in part by using the money I am saving that would normally go to paying rent.

I am the most domesticated guy I know and have been house sitting for several years, mainly through a Perth based house sitting agency, and also privately.
My house sits tend to be a mix of through this site as well as through the agency.

I can of course provide references from previous home owners as well as the agency if you require.

I prefer longer sits for convenience and welcome you contacting me.

Many thanks
Alan

A brief synopsis about me........Originally from the Central Wheatbelt region of Western Australia, my parents owned a large farming property that I spent some years working on after leaving school, before leaving to pursue other career opportunities more relevant to my interests.
This rural community upbringing has given me strong country values, a genuine caring nature for those less fortunate, a solid work ethic and a friendly disposition. Also with both parents having been awarded an AOM for their amazing community work, there is no doubt their giving spirit has been projected onto me.

Pam & Keith


  • SA, WA

We are a couple in our early 60’s – recently retired who enthusiastically enjoy house sitting because it allows us to provide a valuable personalized service to home owners. Nothing gives us more pleasure than making home owners feel comfortable with being away from home, knowing their house is in good hands until the owner's return. We're very grateful to all our wonderful clients for the opportunities they have granted us through inviting us into their homes and lives. We receive trust, and in exchange, we provide loving care. We are non-smokers who are honest, reliable and dependable house sitters who will respect your property and personal things. Our background was in education. We have owned a home and are fully conscious of the care and security needed in keeping a house (including a pool) maintained. Also we have had pets that lived very long comfortable lives because we treated them as part of our family. We will care for your pets as if they were part of our own family. We have had experience in house/pet sitting before and we have references available on request.

Suzanne


  • Sydney

I’m a mature woman (52 yrs), full-time employed by two corporates as a magazine art director, looking for an alternative to renting.

Recently moving out of a rental, this seems a great way to conserve my funds and save to buy my own home for future security. I love the company of animals, although it’s not a pre-requisite.

I love going out to socialise, but at home I love peace and quiet and my own company. I enjoy travel, cooking, music, reading, movies, and am an extremely efficient, clean and organised person.

I've looked after two x two storey homes... one in St Ives on the North Shore of Sydney which also involved feeding, watering and letting in and out of two cats and two rabbits. With lots of cuddles in between. The rabbits roamed free in the garden during the day, but needed to be brought into the pool house during the night. The other house sit was in Turramurra, also on the North Shore of Sydney... looking after two younger dogs and one older dog... feeding and watering all three, walking the two younger dogs, letting in and out, loads of cuddles and cleaning up after them :) Both homes needed to be kept clean, have mail collected and some plants/garden watered.

Non-smoker, excellent references which I can send through on request, happy to meet face to face so that you can decide for yourself.

Anneline & Corline


  • TAS, Melbourne, SE Vic

Review by:
Referee: Teresa MacDonald (Yarra Glen), 6/5/2017
Corline and Anneline were kind enough to look after my two cats and my house for 5 weeks. The cats were lovingly cared for and the house was beautifully clean and tidy upon my return. I would heartily recommend them to anyone requiring pet sitters.

Review by Rebecca:(Vermont) January 2016
Anneline and Corline looked after our cat whilst we were away for 6 weeks over the school Christmas holidays. They arrived on Christmas day and waved us off on our trip whilst preparing their own
Christmas lunch. We received updates and photos of our cat regularly and she was looked after very well. The house was clean and tidy when we arrived home late in the evening which was a wonderful surprise!. I would have them back again in the future and would highly recommend both to look after your pets and home.
Skills: Pets well cared for, Followed instructions, Home neat and clean, Maintained garden, Punctual, Resourceful

Review by Andrea - Woori Yallock, VIC, Australia 19 April 2016
Anneline house sat for our 3 dogs for 4 weeks. The dogs settled in with Anneline with no problems and were more upset when she left than when we left. No doubt she spoiled them rotten and looked after them very well. The house was very tidy on our returns and even fresh milk and juice was in the fridge!
Anneline is a very caring and honest person and we would have her back anytime.
Best sitter you can hope for.

• Beatrice Lucas (Gruyere) June 2016 – September 2016.
Anneline and Corline are a true find and the best possible house-sitters. It was very re-assuring to know that our Horses and Alpacas were in the most caring hands. They are totally reliable, easy to get on with, friendly, honest and practical. We would have them back anytime.

• Jane Douglas (Croydon) May 2015
Anneline and Corline looked after my 6 cats and 6 chickens for 2 months whilst I was on holiday in Europe. She was great and I got photos of the animals and updates of how it was all going several times a week. Anneline did a wonderful job and the house was so clean and tidy. I have been very happy with her work and would love to have her back again in the future.

• Sue Houghton (Mitcham) April 2015
Corline house/dog sat for me twice in quick succession during Easter and after Easter. She was very reliable, responsible and my Chaka was extremely well looked after, as was my home. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a genuine caring house sitter.

• Nancy Latham (Tasmania) December 2014
I cannot recommend my new friends highly enough. It truly is a pity from my perspective that they don’t live locally (Penquin, Tasmania) to be able to house sit for me all the time. I highly recommend them to anyone wishing the best care for their fur babies and truly believe they were the best house sitters I could ever wish for.

• Sharon Gawronski (Don Valley) September 2014
Anneline & Corline house sat for me last year, looking after our horses, dogs and other animals. The animals took to them easily and were comfortable in their care.
I have known Anneline for some time now and have always found her to be honest and trustworthy.
Corline is exceptional at home care/housekeeping.

  • Perth

Why choose us: Peace of mind for you, your pets and your home is what we provide.
We are an uncomplicated, non-smoker couple who once our (flexible time) day jobs are done we look forward to enjoying your pets and your home. Our days of partying are well behind us so many hours to be spent with your precious pets, including their daily walks. We are fit and reliable and take pride in all that we do.
We take the time to understand you and your pets requirements so that once we commit to your house sit, you will feel confident your pets, home and garden are in safe hands.
Through past sittings and as a home owner (with tenants occupying our home back in Europe), there were times when we had our own sitter, so we recognise the value of having a trustworthy, reliable sitter. We live simply and cleanly and will be very respectful of your home, belongings and privacy.
We come highly recommended because what we provide gives you total peace of mind during your time away from home.
And for us, the enjoyment of spending time with your pets while we don’t have our own is something we value and appreciate.
We have been pet-sitting since 2011. Our very first pet&house sit was in the UK for a lovely family with three cats. We were looking after them while the family was on a cruise. When they returned home the lady said her house had never looked so good, and the kitty-cats so content. We have been in touch with them ever since.
We pet-sit because we genuinely love animals, so we can promise you warmth, openness and loving care of your pet and home. Our aim is to give you absolute peace of mind while you are away on a well deserved holiday. We are responsible, clean and have a knowledge of basic repair, and also have gardening experience. Rest assured that we will keep excellent care of your pets, home and garden.

We thank in advance for considering us.

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

I am a responsible, educated and mature person. I love pets. Throughout my life I have had a cat, and between 1997 and 2004 I had a dog too. I like to walk a dog, to cuddle a cat, and usually cats come to me. When I was living overseas a few years ago a cat appeared on my second floor window, at a block of flats, and I adopted it.

I am in transition at the moment, waiting to have a place of my own completed, so I am house sitting. I actually really enjoy it, as I make connection with some lovely pets, and their owners. I feel that I am contributing to their lives and I feel useful.

A bit more about me. I love singing. I spent the last three years studying classical singing. You can see on the photo, I am singing at the concert-exam at the end of my Master's in Classical singing. I do not smoke, do not drink. I work as a sales representative and I drive around for work but do not start early in the morning. I like to keep a clean house. I am not lazy. I lead a quiet lifestyle. I am friendly to pets, I like to cuddle them. I have references on my profile here and I have a police check. Some of my references are from the Couchsurfing.com website, because when I was studying overseas, I accepted international guests, and I also travelled and was a guest myself, via the couchsurfing website.

Namaste
*** *** ***
G'day, we are 2 Aussie ladies travelling this amazing country Australia, in our 19ft caravan, but we leave the van with friends or relatives when house sitting unless it is needed for us to live in.
House sitting bases us in one spot so we can explore the surrounding area, meet new friends and create new memories. To us house sitting is not about the added luxuries provided in house, although they are welcome bonuses enabling us to spend more time with your pets.
Both of us are animal lovers, we both have had our own pets and would love some new fur kids, though have decided to wait while we are travelling and house sitting. We feel that will be less stressful for your pets.
Megan (megz) has worked with rspca, vets, wires, horse stud, sheep station, dairy farm and had her own pet care business. Debbie (debz) has been dubbed "The Chook Queen" for her love and care of the chickens during our sits. We both also loves to potter in the garden and are house proud, so your house will be as tidy and neat as you left it. We are comfortable on a ride on mower, push mower, but don't do whipper snipping, due to health reasons.
Being very comfortable with all breeds of dogs, cats, birds etc, we are happy to have them sleep with us if that is the case. Your pets, animals and wildlife will get plenty of attention, love, affection, cuddles, talks and play time with us around. If you like we can Skype and or send pictures (we take lots of pics) and updates of how your pets are doing.
We both are happy, mature but young (46 & 54), honest, reliable, down to earth girls and once committed to a house sit, put our time and energy in for the whole duration. You will be happy and relaxed knowing we are taking care of your babies and looking after your property. We consider ourselves home bodies, only going out for shopping, doctor appointments, the occasional lunch and a short sight see around the area. We are always home in the evenings. When you arrive home we want to see a huge happy smile on your face, knowing you are delighted to see your babies and house have been lovingly cared for.
Having house sat for over three years now we consider ourselves experienced house sitters. Phone numbers and names of previous sits can be given to you if required. We have recently requested written references and are uploading them as they become available. We also have police checks.
Yes we are smokers but we are very respectful and would NEVER smoke in your house, or anywhere you wish us not to. We carry our own ashtrays as we are environmentally friendly and do not like butts on the ground.

We have just completed a sit at Lacey's Creek, on two hundred acres where we fell in love with the two horses and dogs.
Previous to that we were at Kobble Creek, on many acres looking after 4 dogs, 17 chooks, 7 ducks, 3 guinea fowls and fell in love with Harry the Indian ringneck parrot. Also lots of wildlife and looking after their vegi garden and orchid.
Before that we were on 11 acres at Mount Cotton, spending time with 2 large German shepherds (Charba and Neeka), a pussy cat named Kitty Kat, 19 chooks, also two chicks hatched while we were there, 3 guinea fowls and a cockatiel. Looking after the house, pool, garden and mail collecting. Also we have been in Tin Can Bay with a black lab (Roger), Maltese shih tzu cross (Bear), 3 rag-doll cats (Princess, Magoo and Tinkerbell) (2 had litters while we were there for three months, ( 9 extra kittens) ), an adventurous sulphur-crested cockatoo (Franco) , 2 lorikeets, also inside and outside fish. House, garden, pool and spa. Unfortunately when they asked us for a return sit we were booked and unable to do for them. Two of our Bauple (between Maryborough and Gympie) sits asked us back for a second house sit and one has also booked us for September 2017. There we have (Gracie) the staffy cross and (Angus) is a fox terrier. We also fed wildlife (king-parrots, finches, blue wrens, kookaburras, possums etc).
There are more house sits and duties but we don't wish to write a novel in this space.

Please reply to us regardless of your decision.
We hope we are who you are looking for and will consider us for your next house sitters. Very much looking forward to hearing from you, kind regards Megz and Debz.

HENRIETTE & Katie


  • North Coast, Brisbane, South Eastern

Myself and my two adult daughters Katie and Rebekah, would love to look after your home or home and animals. We are very clean and respectful people with a love for all animals and dogs. We would love to house sit your home so we can get away for a break more often and to look after animals is a bonus too.
As I am a school bus driver we would be available to house sit your home anytime during the school holidays. My daughters Katie is studying primary school teaching and school holidays are good for her too. The other daughter Rebekah works assisting my husband (who is her father) in his landscaping, lawn-mowing business so if your home requires any garden maintenance we are well equipped to do so.
We are all non-smokers who love a clean and tidy house and would ensure your house and property is treated as our own.
I can supply references if requested.

Kind regards Henriette

Lynn & Ron


  • NSW, Brisbane, South Eastern, Central, Central Coast (Qld)

Hi all House owners,

We are an active couple venturing into retirement and see this as a great opportunity to experience more of this beautiful country.

Our plan is to leave South Australia in June and head all the way up to the vicinity of Rockhampton. From there we will head back down the coast to Wollongong for Christmas (we have family there). After Christmas we will continue our travels down the coast through Victoria and hopefully Tasmania before heading back to Adelaide later in 2018.

We have both had pets and would be very confident in managing any of your pets as required. We are non smokers and are also very House proud so you can be assured your property would be looked after as if our own

We currently have secured house sits in Kurrajong NSW from 30th June to 28th July, Beachmere QLD from 6th August to the 19th August and Birkdale Qld up to Sept 12th. We would be more than happy to discuss any sitting requirements you may have that roughly fall into our travel plans after those dates.

We look forward to hearing from you

Regards
Lynn and Ron

I am a member for the Golf Club ladies committee. I am neat and tidy and take pride in my home.

Marilyn & John


John and I are retired. We are both 69 years young fit & healthy. I was an Office Manager for a carpet emporium and John worked with Telstra for nearly 50 years finishing in a Project Managerial Position.

We sold our beautiful home on the Gold Coast in 2012 and bought a Fifth Wheeler to take on Australia wide. We have been doing just that for just over five years. We now have firm friends whose homes we have looked after.

We will look after your home as you would yourselves. We are both house proud, John did love his garden and he is a very handy guy to have around. We have loved and lost our beautiful Alaskan Malamute "Tully" so we realise how important pet(s) are.

John has laid pavers, created a rubble drain, fixed a leaky roof. Maintained acreage, trimmed hedges. Generally hands on with the unfinished project or two. If a pool has to be cleaned he is the man to do it.

We have looked after chooks, birds, cats, fish, dogs, cattle, 1 horse and 2 ducks and guinea pigs.

I love keeping the house in tip top condition and I am able to do bookkeeping/office work if it is needed.

We pride ourselves with the excellent references that we have received.

Hello! I'm a 50 year old single woman - a philosopher by trade. I've recently moved back to my beloved home city of Melbourne after 13 years in the North Island of NZ. While there I went semi-rural on a half-acre property where I ended up living with 2 cats and 8 hens! I loved the lifestyle, and the animals, but not so much the limited professional opportunities, so here I am back in the Big Smoke.

Getting onto the property ladder in this city is not easy and I've been saving a deposit by living at my Dad's place. But then I was invited to do a 3 month house-sit by a friend in Toorak, looking after her Burman cat. I'm enjoying that so much that I thought when it ends I'd try and apply for some more. (My current gig finishes 15 September).

I'm a real cat person - I've always lived with and loved them, and cats tend to enjoy my energy - even cats that normally don't like people much! Introduce me to your cat and you'll see! I'm very good with hens. I have limited experience with dogs but am more than willing to learn. I also have a green thumb and enjoy looking after plants.

I don't smoke and I'm tidy. I tend to like to cook and eat at home to save money. I do work full-time during the day. I have a car so if you could provide parking that would be helpful.

Cheers!

We are an energetic mature couple who have recently retired from many years in business.
As we have owned our own homes so we are respectful and mindful of someone elses property.
House sitting is our way of taking a more relaxed approach to travelling and seeing new places.
We are meticulous in cleaning and maintaining the house and as we have "green thumbs" we enjoy looking after gardens, lawns and plants.
Importantly, we are caring, kind and calm with animals and seem to be able to give them the comfort they want when owners are away.
Giving you peace of mind when you are away is of great importance to us.
Feeling comfortable while we are sitting is also important and so we like our surroundings to be clean and tidy.
Always happy to do chores and odd jobs and we are able to follow instructions you choose to provide
If we sound like the right sitters for you then please contact
Regards
Rose & Roger

Max & Casey


  • VIC

We are a couple looking for houses in Melbourne and outer suburbs to experience different areas for future home opportunities.

Max is studying Bachelor of Exercise and Health Science. He enjoys physical activity, golfing and cooking. He works as a bartender and is an aspiring police officer.

Casey is studying a Bachelor of Nursing. She also enjoys physical activity and singing. She works at a cafe as a barista and a waitress.

We have previously looked after homes with and without animals for varying periods of time. We enjoyed the experience and proved to be responsible and reliable carers. We love animals and are more than happy to look after them and maintain the level of care you require. We're very flexible and we will be available to provide a high standard of care for your home, pets and garden.

Our schedules allow at least one of us to be at your home for majority of the day. We make a rule to not have any visitors at the house to ensure your privacy. We are both non smokers, have current police checks for references if required and maintain tidiness.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

Casey and Max

I used to be Portuguese and Spanish teacher and translator. Both of us are responsible, hardworking and well organized. We have been married for 10 years. We both like dogs and cats. When I was a child, I had a beautiful German Shepherd and now my parents have a cat and a big house which, when we were in Poland, we used to house sit when they were out for the holidays.
We will be glad to help you.
