Anne


  • ACT, Sydney, North Coast, South Coast, Hobart, Rural/Regional Tas

I'm a Sydney-based self-employed artist, working in the contemporary forms of site-specific video, performance and installation. I sometimes work as artist-in-residence with remote and regional communities. I have a home-base in Lane Cove, Sydney, which I've sublet.

I've been a house-sitter since 2001, when I returned from 2 years living overseas on a post-grad scholarship. House-sits have come to me from all over Australia via friends, colleagues, word-of-mouth, and house-sitting agencies such as Happy Housesitters. It suits me well to house-sit as I travel extensively for my art practice. My tools of trade are video camera, laptop, sound equipment and projector, which means I travel light and don't need a studio or art materials.

For the past 3 years I've been exploring Tasmania via a mixture of WWOOF'ing, house-sitting, camping, bushwalking - climbing mountains and breathing deeply in old growth forests as much as possible. In between house-sits I spend time with friends and family in Sydney and all over Australia.

I'm single, no children, don't smoke, drink very little, have my own car. I love to grow and cook good food and am a dab hand in the kitchen, having spent a few years as a professional cook. I love to have the sky as my roof as much as possible - 'chop wood, carry water' has great appeal to me. I'm physically active with bushwalking, swimming, gardening, Pilates, Tai Chi, and I sing in a choir wherever possible.

I'm good with farm animals and wildlife and I'm happy to become a domestic animal's human for the time they're in my care. I'm clean and tidy and always leave house, animals and garden well tended. I can attend to incoming mail under your instructions, send scans of anything requiring your attention, and even run an in-house internet trading business if you happen to have one, as does a Hobart home owner for whom I've house-sat a number of times.

In other words, I'm energetic, versatile, adaptable and a reasonably quick study. I like long house/land sits. I'm keen to experience eco-sensitive, energy-sustainable homes and properties, to learn from them, to make a sweat contribution to them and to foster optimism about the future.

  • 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.
Hope we can assist each other .

Responsible retired couple available to care for your home, domestic pets and garden.

We are a retired couple (non-smokers) from Brisbane with interests in golf, gardening, photography and genealogy. We enjoy road trips, spending time in one place and leisurely exploring an area and community. Since 2014 we have undertaken a number of house-sitting assignments and are always respectful of someone else’s property and possessions, taking care to maintain the property to a high standard.

We have owned dogs, cats and birds in the past and they were always considered an integral part of our family. We would describe ourselves as “animal lovers” and have experience in the care of domestic animals such as feeding, administering medication, grooming and walking.

We would feel privileged to be given the opportunity to take care of your pets and property.

Joshua & Angelina


  • ACT

Hello! We are a young, married couple who would love to take great care of your home, garden and pets.

We have plenty of house sitting experience and an excellent rental history. We have no pets at the moment but both grew up with cats and dogs for many years and love getting out and about for walks.

We have full-time, ongoing employment in Canberra so can comfortably commit to your time frame. We are also flexible – Josh (34) is a public servant and often starts late, while Ange (31) is a teacher and gets home early – so we’ll have plenty of time to give your pets and garden attention.

We are non-smokers and have no children. We are mature, responsible and tidy, and will maintain excellent communication with you while you’re away.

Hi there!

My name is Nikki, I'm a 28 year old female from Scotland and I am studying my Masters in Landscape Architecture. I came to Melbourne in July 2017 to study and I will be staying in Australia until my final year of uni starts in Scotland in September 2018. My next semester starts in January but it is distance learning, so I will just be studying from home and don't have to attend uni which is why I thought about house-sitting. I've been renting an apartment in the CBD since I arrived but since I spend most of my time studying in the house anyway it would be nice to have a furry friend to keep me company and I would also get to see other parts of Melbourne.

Unfortunately at this point in my life I can't have a pet of my own because of university and travelling but I love all kinds of animals and I'm especially experienced in taking care of dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, fish and bearded dragons. The beautiful miniature pinscher you see in my pictures is called Benji, my friend saved him from a breeder who obviously didn't care about the wellbeing of her puppies and as a result he developed some behavioural problems and was aggressive and possessive. I offered to foster him for her until he was ready to be around other dogs and as you can see with a little training and a lot of love he turned into the perfect little gentleman and can't get enough of cuddling on the couch.

I worked as an in-home carer for disabled adults whilst at home in Britain, therefor I have been extensively police checked and received specialist training and have certificates that confirm I am legally entrusted with the care of the most vulnerable people in society. I conducted personal care for severely disabled individuals and took them out for activities and assisted with general day to day living like shopping, preparing food, doing chores and I also maintained their homes for them so I am experienced with house cleaning. If you are interested in my references I will provide you with contact details for my previous employer who can verify my police check, that I worked there for over a year (the only reason I reluctantly left the job was because I was coming here to study) and that I am trustworthy and have the experience necessary to care for your house and pets. You also know that I couldn't have a criminal record or I would not have been granted a Visa or entry into Australia and I will provide you with photocopies of my drivers licence (full, manual and clean) and passport so you have my personal details.

I'm more than happy to send you daily pictures or video calls so you can see that your pet is being treated with the love and attention they deserve. I don't drink or smoke, I am a clean and quiet lodger and will provide a reference from my current landlord (who lives in the property with me) to confirm this. I am happy to meet you prior to making any house sitting plans so you can decide if I'm a good fit. I am a warm, compassionate person just looking fsor a furry companion to keep me company during my studies, I'm looking for longer house sits preferably around a month so I can see different parts of Australia but not have to move around too often. I'm happy to sign a contract with agreed terms and will even provide you with a bond to ensure your peace of mind.

I look forward to hearing from you!
Nikki

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.

Someone you can absolutely count on!

Hello, I am Clare, 62, 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 animals in the past, I now prefer to love and care for cats, in homes that are well cared for by their owners.

Undertaking French Language studies externally allows me the freedom to move about and explore new places and communities, whilst still allowing plenty of time to give proper care and attention to your home and pet(s).

I lead a simple life - studying, walking, swimming, gardening and seeking to maintain good health in aesthetically pleasing environments close to the sea for outdoor swimming. 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.

Tamworth NSW is the one exception however, being another preferred location, due to previous associations there.

My home bases are Mona Vale, NSW and South Arm,Tasmania.
Numerous references available and all referees happy to be contacted personally.

Hello. I am a retired, mature (sadly!), married woman looking to do some house sitting. I live with my husband in our own home on the Gold Coast and we currently have a dog and a cat. I am an experienced "pet" person, having had all manor of animals in my home, from mice, birds, fish to cats and dogs. Our own dog (a kelpie) is currently 7 years old and a very crazy young thing, needing lots and lots of exercise. He was supposed to be an outside dog, but somehow that rule hasn't been fully applied! Our cat is almost 4 and is very much busy with chasing the dog around. I am able to garden, clean the pool, look after the house and pets. I am a non smoker. Though I plan to "house sit" usually by myself, there would be times when my husband would join me for a short break. We are both thoroughly house trained! We are planning to formally retire in a few years and I feel that house sitting in different places would help me to get a feel for various districts by living like a local, rather than as a tourist. I am most happy to look after pets and would look after your home well. I have now done many house sits (and many return sits) and can forward names and contact details for these house owners as references. I have a written personal character reference that I can send on to you as well. Hopefully all will tell you how wonderful I am. Oh, and also that I am honest, reliable and trustworthy. You can email me on eevahelena@yahoo.com.au anytime. My preference is for short breaks, up to three weeks or so, and around the ACT or anywhere in NSW. Thanks. Eeva

  • 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 100+ housesits over the past 12 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

Mature married couple, home owners in Elwood Vic, non smokers. We love the company of animals and have lived with dogs for over 40 years. Gemalla (Schnauzer) and Katielina (Airedale) are our mature, friendly and very well trained mates and would like to travel/holiday with us.

We love all animals and believe that we would enjoy looking after your pets and care for them like our own. Being house proud we would look after your home with great care.

We enjoy a healthy environment, are keen dog walkers along the beach, parks and bush areas and share an interest in gardening, healthy living, the outdoors and food and wine.

Derek


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC

Hi, My name is Derek. I'm 61, single and this is my third year house sitting. I'm currently in Bruthen (East Gippsland) enjoying the company of three very affectionate cats.

I thought house sitting would be a great way to get to see and know more of Australia and Australians. The home owners, pets, locals, culture and geography I'm meeting continue to supply a wealth of positive experiences. It's also a pleasure to be able to help people get away in the knowledge their homes and pets are in safe, committed hands.

Skills under my belt include gardening and house maintenance as well as pool care. I have owned, as well as looked after many pets; being experienced with dogs, cats, birds, chooks, ducks, horses, alpacas, a Shetland pony, poddy calves, fish and bees (a former orchard interest). I am reliable and would keep your pet's established routines as close to normal as possible.

I understand how important peace of mind is with respect to the well being of pets. As such, I keep in regular email contact with home owners regarding pets and always attach pics of their escapades. I also spend the majority of my time around the house and therefore, with your pet/s.

I am also responsible with the care and security necessary to keep a house safe and sound. I drive but don't have a car (environmental); public transport does the job. I live simply via a connection with Buddhist philosophy and practice. I don't drink or smoke. I would consider any location in Australia - city, country town or rural. Longer sits are preferable; 4 weeks plus - but would consider shorter periods depending on location and bookings.

If you think I could be suitable, ring or text if dates fit and I'll get on line and/or phone you. I'll forward references and referee contacts when applying for positions. Thank you for your consideration.

Joanne


  • ACT

(Updated 29/8/17) All Canberra, ACT locations considered > I am a mature, female IT contractor working in Canberra since May 2015. My home base is Melbourne where I have my own home and a gorgeous ginger cat called Mr Boots and his girlfriend, Cienna - currently being looked after by my son and his girlfriend. With employment in Canberra, I have found house-sitting to be a convenient way to relax and enjoy the company of a surrogate animal (cats preferred but will mind a dog!)

I am also a member of another housesitting website (TrustedHousesitters) and you can find my profile with two reviews at:
https://www.trustedhousesitters.com/house-and-pet-sitters/australia/victoria/mont-albert-north/
If the link does not display then navigate as follows:
www.trustedhousesitters.com > ‘Find a Pet Sitter’ > Add ‘Mont Albert’ to the search > select the looking glass icon to complete the search > locate my profile (Joanne – it says Surrey Hills).

I have an active baseline security clearance, for my employment, and with simple instructions and contact points for managing animals and the accommodation you can be assured of an independent, considerate, capable, very clean, tidy, non-smoker, a non-drinker (occasional glass of wine, only) who loves animals and will care and pamper your cats! I’m a cat owner – I know how spoilt they can and should be!

Blackout dates are the Christmas and New Year timeframe when I return to my home.

All I need for a minimum of fuss transition is a handover night if this works and written instructions to refer to. Location on a bus route is also preferable - I have my own car so preference for off-street parking. I don't need to use your car - but happy to start it up or drive around the block so the battery doesn't go flat. Can manage your bins, watering, alarm systems, etc....Other than that, you do not need to worry about anything while you travel secure in the knowledge that property and animals will be looked after

Please feel free to contact me and chat. I would love to meet you and look after your animal/s and home!

I am a happy, friendly, 60 year old semi-retired house-sitter who is a fit, non-smoking, mature female; honest, reliable, house and garden proud. I grew up on a farm thus have familiarity, experience, patience and love for animals and pets, having grown up caring for many various pets of my own.

I have a passion for gardening and landscaping; I have the time to care for, walk and empathize with your pet/s missing their owner/s while keeping your home safe and as you left it. I have always owned my own homes and worked in responsible professional positions; married for 37 years to an electrician who works away six months of the year, with adult independent children living interstate pursuing professional careers.

I will respect your home, garden and beloved pets with the care I show my own. I can supply a Police Check, Working with Children Check (pets are our children!), House Owners and character references when required.

I am willing to listen carefully to your instructions, preferences & requirements. Thank-you, Dianne :)

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.

Animal Lover and Hermit Crab looking for temporary shell to share with furry friends!

I am a reliable, responsible and down to earth person (female, German, late-thirties, non-smoker) with a big heart, happy outlook on life and broad interests. I've lived in Australia for 6 years and just got back after three years in Germany, ready to live the digital nomad dream.

I love animals (especially cats) and gardens (all kinds) but my travelling life style isn't quite suited to have my own just yet so it would be lovely to care for someone else's for a while. I am honest and have a high standard of cleanliness. I will treat your home and animal/s as if they were my own and look forward to meeting you! :-)

Hi,

I love animals, am clean, considerate, and quiet. Love to roam and take pictures and feel at home in both urban and country environments.

I have been running Airbnb properties for the past seven years, mostly as a 'superhost' so am clean, responsible, and enjoy meeting new people from everywhere.

House sitting is knew to me but animal care is not. I have experience with dogs, cats, horses and wilderness wildlife.

I am hoping to find some long term sits.

Hello!
I am a former Maths/Science teacher who has chosen to visit Australia via house sitting! I have a car and my traveling mate, Billy, my 6 year old schnauzer X and hope to meet lots of people while traveling. I have rented out my house and am having a great time. I had my first two sits here in Tasmania and 7 more scheduled in Victoria, NSW and ending the year in QLD. I love to garden and adore animals and am considered to always have a tidy home! I'm a non- smoker. I have had chooks before and love horses and cows! Please consider me for your next sitter for 2018!
Cheers, Patty

I am moving to take up a new full-time position with Elders in Tassie.
I have previously house sat and can provide a reference if needed.
I am a tidy person and can look after the garden. My interests are tennis, golf and reading and this house in Mt Stuart would provide the perfect opportunity to tide me over while I look for a permanent residence.I have friends I can stay with until its available.

Hi
I'm Cheryl an honest mature female who is clean trustworthy, non smoking and a respectful house sitter.

I work in financial services and have very flexible work hours working from home a few days per week in the Sydney CBD.

I have recently sold my home in Paddington and am wanting to house sit for a while before I eventually relocate to Brisbane to be with my family.

I can offer excellent references and am a very experienced dog /cat sitter.

My recent sits have been for Shih Tzu, Labra-Doodles, Sharpeis and Maltese Poodles.

Recent cat sits have been for Siamese, Maine Coons, Norwegian Forest, Persians, Burmese and most loved moggies!

I have no issue with helping with house work or light gardening and would treat your home as my own.

Warm regards,

Cheryl

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.


Hope to hear from you !

Susie & Gary
