  • 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.

Samantha & Daniel


  • NSW

My preferred housesits are in the Hills area, Blacktown area, Penrith area and Richmond area.

I am a reliable, mature young lady. I am a non-smoker.

I am a primary school teacher living with a noisy family so I use housesitting as an opportunity to have some space and quiet.

I am also interested in buying a house in the future so I find housesitting a fantastic opportunity to get to know the neighbourhoods and functions of different houses.

I enjoy animals, and live a very tidy, active lifestyle.

I also work as a casual employee at a leisure centre.

I am interested in ensuring people have peace of mind that their house and animals are looked after whilst they are away. I have multiple house sitting experiences over the last 5 years and am called upon regularly for future housesits by previous clients.

My partner joins me for house sits. He is 24, currently working as Lifeguard Team Leader and is working towards a career in musical theatre. He was a part of the Mary Poppins production at Riverside Theatre in 2015 and continues to perform in amateur productions.

Chingwei & Margaret


  • Sydney, Central Coast, South Coast, Rural/Regional NSW

My partner and I are available for pet and house-sitting. We are a same-sex couple, have left corporate careers, are self-employed, work online and are usually home during the day. We both love animals and have had pets (cats, dogs and chickens). I love sketching and gardening, and am used to maintaining a large garden (watering, weeding, setting up beds, growing trees, flowers and vegetables); my partner is house-proud and a tiny bit obsessed about keeping things clean and neat. Non-smokers, discreet (we won't share photo of your pets or house on social media), and respectful of your privacy. References are available from our profile.

Lauren


  • NSW

Hi I'm Lauren! I've moved over from England in June and I am keen to stay in Australia for a while as some of my family live here. I'm known as the 'sensible one' in my friendship group and I have a property of my own in England therefore I will take care of your home as if it were my own. I love animals and have taken good care of dogs, cats, rabbits and fish of my own in the past. I understand leaving your home and pets in someone else's hands is a big responsibility and I want to give full peace of mind that I will take good care of both your home and pets. I have completed several successful housesits so far in Melbourne looking after cats, dogs (greyhounds, cavoodles, pugs and spaniels) and plants/gardens.
I will be in Sydney from end of January and I thought house sitting would give me a realistic/authentic idea of the living situation around different suburbs, also helping you out to have a worry free trip away!
When I arrived in Australia, I stayed with a family friend; she is a very knowledgable vet nurse so if I have any issues or questions I always have her a phone call away to ask.
Please don't hesitate to contact me :)

I currently live and work in Melbourne, living in a share household. I house sit as I also enjoy having time to myself. I also love caring for pets. Over the past years I have sat on many occasions with many homeowners asking me back to sit for them.

I will take really good care of your pets. I genuinely enjoy both cats and dogs. I Like taking dogs for walks and offering lots of affection. Same for cats too...except the walking.

Will also take good care of your property and leave it in an excellent condition.

I have excellent references. A police check. I don't smoke.
I am a friendly respectful guy who is very clean and tidy
Cheers, Patrick

Hi there, I'm a semi retired 50 something male (non smoker) who looks after people's pets and homes. I have had many happy clients, including lots of dogs and cats and horses and cows (see pics); I'm sure their owners are happy too.

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.

Debra and Tom

Maz


  • NSW, QLD

I am a single female (non-smoker) employed in education (part-time). During some semesters and during semester breaks I work at home and other times I work one day per week for a few hours. That means I am at home to care for your pets full time or away only a partial day so I would be at home to care for your pets. As well, I have over two years experience with house sitting, where my experience includes three cats at one sit, three dogs at one house sit, birds, fish and cattle with more than seven references indicating excellent care for both home and pets. My goal is to provide excellence in the care of your pets and home. As well I have a police check. In the past I have had the opportunity to house sit/manage a bed and breakfast, where owners were happy with my work. As well I have been house and pet sitting for over two years and receive excellent recommendations. Additionally, I have both rented and owned a home with positive comments on the care of my home and garden. Pets" I grew up with all types of animals including dogs, cats horses and chickens. Animals seem to know I will care for them and react positively to me. My experience with pets includes obedience training. If you are especially interested in my care of your home, I would say that some of my friends might say that I spend too much time cleaning/organising my home and taking care of my yard-- but I enjoy it. For one home, the neighbors labeled my yard as the best cared for with its green grass (that I grew from almost nothing) and lovely flowers. My past times are simple including walking/jogging, reading, movies/tv, gardening and socialising with friends and family. I enjoy a simple life. You can expect that no parties would be held at your property and my focus will be on caring for your pets/home. Sincerely Maz

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 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 ..

Cheryl


  • NSW

I am a single mother in my late 30’s looking to save money for a house deposit while keeping your home and pets in excellent care. My 4 year old daughter will be helping me to keep your home clean and dogs happy. I’m a professional (Legal field), working full time in North Ryde while my daughter attends child care near my work.
We enjoy going for walks to parks, baking on Sunday afternoons, catching up with family and friends and exploring local areas. I’m very clean (tipping OCD levels), and love to give dogs cuddles and pats. Our 14 year old staffy/ Ridgeback passed away last year so we love taking care of other dogs until we get our own home and can think about welcoming another furry member of the family.
Unfortunately, my daughter is allergic to cats so we can’t care for most cats unless they’re hypoallergenic. My daughter still sleeps next to me so we only need one bed. My belongings are in storage so no need for caravan space etc, however a car space would be handy for my car.

I was a teacher for 14 years so I have a police check, working with children check and teaching accreditation. I volunteer for a couple of organisations in my spare time and enjoy helping others. I have house sat for family and friends in the past so I can provide references if you wish.

If I sound like the type of person you want with the responsibility of taking care of your home or furry family member, please drop me a message and I’ll respond ASAP. At this stage I’m looking for house sits close to my work and for longer periods rather than shorter periods to avoid too many changes for my daughter.
I hope to hear from you soon!
