Karen & Michele


  • ACT, NSW, QLD

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

Susan & David


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC


Hi! We are a mature aged, professional couple who own a home in Byron Bay and love travelling and discovering new places!

We are both self-employed (David is a book publisher and Susan is a bookkeeper/BAS agent) and can work from home. We collectively have passions for books/knowledge, food, nature, animals, travel, music, the arts, and life!

We previously house/pet sat in 2013 for 4 weeks at Coolum Beach, Queensland. This homeowner has now re-engaged us for 7 weeks and we are currently taking care of her resort style apartment at Kawana Island, and her delightful puss Phil! (Phil is modelling in our profile pictures.)

In 2019 we’ve decided to house/pet sit for 12 months and will be accruing references along the way. Two references from jobs done in the past are uploaded on our profile and more character references are available on request.

We have also spent the past 5 years offering our spare room in Byron Bay on AirBnB and quickly achieved Superhost status. We have many outstanding reviews from our guests who consistently rated us highly on the meticulously clean presentation of our home, and our warm, friendly, helpful attitude. We ensure that our guests have the best experience possible. A link to these reviews is available.

It goes without saying that we would treat your home with the utmost care, and lavish loads of love and affection onto your precious pets! We adore animals and are hoping that house/pet sitting will be able to fulfill our desires for both travel and animals simultaneously.

We are very flexible with our dates and locations and are willing to travel far and wide.

If you’re looking for a happy, reliable, trustworthy, pet-loving couple who like to go the extra mile then please contact us to discuss your house/pet sitting needs. If distance prevents a personal meeting beforehand we are always available for a ‘cyber meeting’ on Skype!

We wish you all many happy holiday experiences and wonderful travel adventures and hope to meet you and your pets soon.

Debra & Tom


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, VIC

Hello,

We are a non-smoking, mature aged couple who will look after your home and pets as if they were your own. We are willing to travel to most areas of Australia. At the moment we are looking for a house-sit in NSW, Victoria or Q'ld, but are willing to consider/travel other states. We are experienced house sitters, having done many sits over recent years including many return requests.

Our reasons for house sitting are simple. It gives us the opportunity of seeing different parts of this beautiful country, and it also to gives us the opportunity to provide the home owner with peace of mind that their home and animal/s will be extremely well cared for, should we be granted that privilege.

We take pride in what we do, being both neat and tidy. We enjoy a quiet life, are very capable, employ common sense and take care of things the way we would hope some-one would do for us.

We have cared for many different animals, cats (many varieties including Ragdoll, Himalayan, Russian Blue, Birman, Burmese, Siamese, much loved long haired and short haired moggies, all with different personalities and requirements, some indoor only felines). We have cared for number dogs (Malamut-cross, Border Collie, Rhodesian Ridgeback, Staffy, Flatcoat Retriever, Labradoodle, Swiss Shepherd to name a few), fish, chickens and cows a herd of 20+. In recent times we can add sheep and goats. We have looked after suburban properties and rural/semi-rural with water tanks and septic systems, pumps and bio-cycles.

We can provide excellent references upon request. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Joanne and I (Terry) are in our fifties and can provide character/Police (NZ) references on request. We are both non-smokers, very tidy and would treat your home like our own.

Helen & Tony


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

We are two retired, active, music and food loving schoolteachers with a penchant for travelling and enjoying new experiences. We have been involved in house and pet sitting for many years and in many places throughout Australia and overseas. While we have a home in Adelaide, we enjoy a nomadic lifestyle in our motorhome, which makes it unfair to have pets of our own. Housesitting allows us to indulge our love of animals and over the years we have cared for many dogs, cats, birds, horses, sheep, goats, cattle and the like, with dogs, whether big and boisterous or small and cuddly, being our special love. We are also meticulous in the attention we give to each property, whether it be an apartment, a suburban block or a rural spread. Recent experiences have included a 10 month stint on a Daintree acreage, return visits to a horse property and 3 months caring for two houses in the south of France. As Tony is something of a dab hand at housework and property maintenance and Helen is an expert at quality control, you can rest assured that your property and pets will be cared for as if they are our own. We will happily provide you with contact details for phone referees if required.

I am a mature age house and pet sitter with a background of living in country homes in Queensland...at Mitchell and Mapleton. I have an outgoing personality and have really enjoyed meeting home owners and their pets and am conscientious in fulfilling the unique job description of each assignment.

I have worked in the Real Estate industry in Queensland and have had the responsibility of ensuring security of homes and properties in the absence of home owners.

I love to travel and housesitting has resulted in very successful recent house sitting assignments in New Zealand ,Avalon, near Palm Beach, Pottsville, Bateman's Bay, Cremorne and Mosman Bay...in NSW. I have enjoyed the company of border collies, a labradoodle, caboodle, cats , poultry and horses.

I have attached the references from these assignments.

I would be delighted to introduce myself to you to discuss your specific requirements and instructions in detail.

I will be able to supply more character references and housesitting references, on request.

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

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

Reference for Lucy and Murray Pollard
Lucy and Murray house-sat our 2 very precious schnoodles for 4 nights recently (July 2015). I couldn’t have asked for better sitters! They visited beforehand to meet our dogs and I immediately felt very comfortable that Lucy and Murray would take great care of our dogs. They were very dedicated to looking after the dogs and respectful of our apartment, leaving it spic and span. Our dogs were very happy in their company as Lucy and Murray happily followed the daily routine we requested, including letting them sleep in their bed with them. I will definitely ask them to sit for us again.

Reference — Lucy Sdao & Murray Pollard
In March 2015 we embarked on a 5 week trip and was looking for someone to housesit and care for our dog and rabbit. Fortunately Lucy & Murray were able to help us out.
Lucy and Murray kept in contact throughout our trip with updates on our elderly dog Hank who required some additional care with medicine. We were very happy to also receive
photos of Murray and Hank together!
The house was left immaculately with not a thing out of place. In fact the only evidence that we found of their stay was some food in the cupboards — they even left the wheelie bin
empty!
Lucy and Murray were fantastic housesitters and we would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

Lucy & Murray of Avalon Sydney NSW were house sitters at my home x 6 weeks September & early October 2015.

I have 4 dogs and it seems, during my absence, they loved them to death ! the dogs totally fell in love with Murray and Murray with the dogs. Although the criteria was to walk the dogs once a day, my neighbours tell me they often saw my sitters walking the dogs twice a day.

On my return, the house was kept in fine order, very tidy and clean and the garden was taken care of also.

I would welcome Lucy and Murray a return house sit here if they were available and would recommend them as reliable dog lovers.

If further information is required please do not hesitate to ask for phone contact number.

Im retired(well as retired as I can get) Im presently living in Thailand volunteer teaching english and organics.

I have had many homes during my 66 years and have taken good care of them all, mine that I owned or rented while in the RAAF for 20 years.
I dont smoke and drink very little if at all(unless after a hard days work I may have a bottle). A tidy and clean person, the RAAF taught me these. I walk at least 5 klms each morning rain willing, I have been involved with sporting clubs most of my life and like watching local Rugby League when I can.
I cannot supply references at this time(unless my wife counts as she said she can supply me one), but will Im sure be able after my first house sit.

We are a responsible, non-smoking, non-drinking couple based in Melbourne.

Fernanda and Fabrice lived in Canberra for almost five months, when Fabrice was working at ACT Health as an IT contractor.

We are on the road to retirement & looking forward to the next stage in our life, we are still doing some work via the internet & this means that we will be around for most of the time to care & watch over everything for you.

As well as travelling & having new experiences along the way, we have found that house sitting really suits us as it is so comforting to stay in a friendly home environment & if there are pets or animals to look after, then their company is an added bonus!

We love animals & wildlife & have had a long experience in caring for dogs, cats & farm animals. Unfortunately we no longer have our own pets, so we would welcome the opportunity to care for yours.

Over the years we have also had extensive experience in house & garden maintenance having renovated our own properties & also as sitters, we have cared for a number of different types of homes & properties ranging from large farms through to smaller homes & units.

We do understand that everyone's house & pets are different & we seriously take this on board & listen to each individuals requests & we will follow through with meeting your specific requirements while we stay & promise to keep you updated while you are away.

The opportunity to become your house sitter would be a great privilege & something we would not take for granted, as we both understand it is a necessity to respect your house & property & keep it well maintained while in residence.

We are both non smokers, healthy & happy people & look forward to hearing from you.

If required we can provide further reputable references & recommendation contacts.

Wayne & Jennifer


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

We are experienced Aussie housesitters, retired accountant and agricultural scientist, grey nomads, non smokers, and both dog and cat lovers, having owned our own pets all our lives, and looked after numerous and various animals as housesitters for other homeowners, like yourselves. My husband and I were introduced to the concept of housesitting when we retired in July 2005. Since then, we have combined travel with housesitting in Australia, New Zealand, England and Europe and made lifelong friends along the way. So far, we have undertaken 120+ housesits over the past 14 years since retiring from full time employment. For ourselves during the course of our life, we have owned large dogs; boxers and german shepherds – all obedience trained - also cats, fish and poultry. We both retired from our jobs in the Northern Territory and sold our home, with a swimming pool, owned for 20 years. We plan on continuing to travel whilst we are healthy and until we get the travel bug out of our system. Our motto is to treat your home and pets as we would expect our own home and pets to be treated - with respect, love and care.
I was born and bred on a farm in South Australia, lived there for 21 years before moving to the Northern Territory, where my working life continued as an accountant. My husband is a Queenslander, and worked as an agricultural scientist in 2 Australian states, during the course of his working career.
We can provide written references, photos and police clearances, if you require further info. – but basically, we are just ‘grey nomads’ – enjoying retirement and travelling around England, Europe and Australia whilst we still have our health and are able to travel. Thanks for your time

Having recently finished 5 years of in-home caring/support of my elderly parents, I'm now saving to acquire a "home on wheels", so that I can travel around more of our wonderful country.
Please contact me if you think I may be a good "fit" for your home/pet sit requirements ... "smoke-free" homes only, thankyou!

Please check my Calendar for current availabilities.
