Hello, I am a single, non smoking health professional with experience in caring for homes and much loved pets. I am very conscious of the need of keeping homes and pets safe and secure, and am aware of the trust that home owners place in house-carers.

As mentioned I have house sat for previous home owners and cared for all manner of dogs, cats, fish....and would be happy to provide references. I am a non smoker, lead a quiet life, am responsible and accountable. I would be happy to care for your home.

Hello. I am a retired senior federal public servant, 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

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

We are retired, caring and experienced sitters. We are quiet, non-smokers, reliable, trustworthy, very clean and tidy. We have references and national police clearances.
We love tranquility (out of the way acreage sitting positions), views (from suburban blocks as well) or proximity to beach or lake. We will definitely consider other locations as well.
We have our own very neat and well cared home north of Brisbane. We have owned and lovingly cared for various types of animals. We pride ourselves in looking after your house and fur babies as if they were our own! We are also keen gardeners and have looked after pools and acreage.
We have done a lot of home renovating. As such, we are very handy with tools and equipment and would be able to tackle most urgent repairs or ongoing maintenance required in your home or on acreage.
In her early twenties, Catherine worked as a housekeeper, before becoming a front office and housekeeping manager in 4 & 5 star hotels. As such, you can be guaranteed that your house will be left clean when you return.
Before retiring, we both worked for the public service in professional high clearance positions for 20 or so years. We travelled overseas extensively and would now like to primarily concentrate on seeing other parts of our beautiful country. We love discovering new surroundings and living as one of the locals. So, being able to do this, whilst caring for your home and pets as if they were our own, is the perfect solution!
Thank you for considering us.
Catherine and Wayne

  • NSW

Hi my name is Paul. I know you want someone responsible to take care of your house, pets, plants, mail etc. I can provide you with that..
I am a single 50 plus, non smoker, semi retired person who works as a writer and part time limo driver. I am also a former American who is now an Australian permanent resident.
I can provide you with a police check ( I needed to provide extensive police checks , American and Australian to become a permanent resident ) and references.
I grew up with pets in my family. Dogs, cats, birds, fish, rabbits, turtles. I loved them all and realize that pets are part of the family. I have described my dog growing up as one of the finest beings I had ever had the privilege to know. My dad would say " that dog is a gentleman", which is a high compliment from him. I have taken care of friend's pets and houses as early as my teen years.
I would treat your pets with the respect and care they deserve knowing what it's like myself to have pets in your life this goes for your plants and house as well..
Thank you for considering me for your house sitting position.
sincerely, Paul Spatarella

  • NSW

Single, non-smoking, quiet, animal loving house-sitter available...everyone catered for - from greyhounds to great danes!
From a country background, I was brought up with all sorts of animals and am a certifed equine sport masseuse.

My first house-sit was supposed to be for one weekend and ended up being a four year stint:))

Currently I work Mon-Fri evenings on my laptop (home based.)

In addition to this, I do a couple of morning and weekend evening shifts in the city so approx 20 hours a week I would be out of the house, so not suitable for anyone requiring a sitter to be home 24/7.

Refs available upon request.

Preferred Location: anywhere handy to transport connections.

Hello wonderful house owners!

We are Matt & Yve :)

married professional couple in our early 30's, no children,
We prioritise fitness and health into our lifestyles, Our main activities are to cycle, swim, yoga, but most of all we love dog walks.

Our ideal weekend is relaxing and enjoying down time surrounded by fury and feathered friends.

Our main reason for house sitting is to conserve our funds and eventually be able to buy. We are fortunate enough to be able to be able stay with family and friends in between house sits who have maintainance and pets that we take care of from time to time.

We both love and have experience with all types of pets. My favorite piece of feedback that I've received so far is that I am a dog whisperer and can connect with most animals, even difficult ones, Yve has a gentle connection with cats and ferrets!

We are happy travelers and have much respect for the homes we have the pleasure of staying in and our surroundings.

Yve is Australian and I'm from London originally with a permanent visa for Australia, We are excited to explore anywhere our journey takes us! fortunately we work in flexiblie industries that allows us to travel and experience change.

Previously house sat for friends and family in England, Ireland and Australia and loved exploring the experience. :)
We can provide references as well as police clearance upon request.

clean, tidy and pro-active, We treat a home and it’s invitation like it was our own special space and We understand that every pets have different needs, every house has different requirements and instructions to discuss in person.

Look forward to hearing from you.

I am an and Educator and published children's Author since September 2015. (you can view my website at www.andrewgholt.com if interested) I was working full time as a teacher ( remote NT) these last 16 months till Easter which gave me time to completer the second book . Prior to that I lived on the Sunshine coast . From Easter 2019 I will return and run workshops for children on weekends and in the holidays whilst relief teaching. Reief teaching gives me more flexibility to work on the next book project, plus spend time with your animals too.
I am looking for a place to sit whilst writing some more and attending local markets on my way back up to the sunshine coast.
I have house sat before and as recent as September 2016 at Tanawha and October 2015 and then before in 2013 in Twin Waters.
I enjoy looking after animals and love spending time with them. I treat them as my own under the quidelines of each owner of course.
I am tidy neat and quiet. I enjoy the opportunity to practice yoga and became a qualified teacher in 2015 in Canada. I love bushwalking , reading about education and working on promoting the books I have published and writing draughts for future books. I am able to supply references if need so.
I have had a farm background as a child/teenager and have always had animals in my youth. My extensive travel as a teacher these last few years prevents me from having my own, so I would love the opportunity to look after yours.
I look forward to connecting if you feel I would be the right match. Any questions happy to chat.
Andrew

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

  • ACT, NSW, VIC

Hi! I’m a fifty+ single mum and nana. I’m very neat and tidy, living a quiet and serene life. I absolutely adore dogs and enjoy other pets as well. I keep fit with daily walks that I would love to share with a fur-friend. Because I’m taking some time off from the corporate world to revive and refresh myself, I have all day and night to lavish attention on your pets and care for your home. The reason I’m interested in house sitting is to become more familiar with areas that I might like to retire to. I have previous experience in house and pet sitting with references when required. So if you’re looking for someone who will love your pet, care for your home, and not be a nuisance to your neighbours, then I’m the perfect person for you.

Aurora


  • Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, Rural/Regional NSW, QLD, SA, TAS

Retired from working in aged-care, now embracing house sitting full time to travel and explore Australia.
I enjoy the different environments, the many different pets and the people I meet.. I see this life style as an adventure, always interesting and exciting. I do enjoy exploring the area I stay in but prefer to spend my evenings in the home I am looking after.
I am an active, non-smoking, mature single female. I consider it a privilege to care for your pets, home and garden.
Have owned and loved cats, dogs (including two long haired Chihuahua which lived to the ripe old age of 18), fish, birds and even my daughter's mice.
I live a healthy life style, am reliable, honest, responsible, trustworthy and very tidy. I supply all my own consumables so that you are not inconvenienced.
I will enjoy looking after your pets and home while you are away and ensure that they will be taken care of as you would expect. With love and kindness. To be trusted with someones home and pets is a privilege.. I stick to the routine that the animals are used to and so enjoy their company.
If I can be of assistance, I would love to hear from you.

Karen & Russ


  • Central Coast, North Coast, South Coast, Rural/Regional NSW, Darwin, SA, WA

Hi, we are a semi retired couple in our late fifties taking some time out to travel this beautiful country of ours. Completing the lap in our caravan we are looking for opportunities to stop, park up and explore and housesitting provides an ideal way to do so.
We are experienced housesitters, are very trustworthy and dependable, we are both non smokers and only light social drinkers. 
As home owners we understand of the importance of looking after your house and we will treat your property and personal things as we would treat our own - with the utmost respect, keeping your property clean, tidy and secure, caring for it until your return home. We are also very happy to look after your lawn and garden whilst your house is in our care.
We are both animal lovers and will look after your pets in accordance with your directions and just like your house, we will treat your fur babies like they are our own. We have extensive experience with dogs, in particular greyhounds and up until starting our journey we were fostering rescues for GAP.
We are happy to send you updates and pics of your pets to show you they are happy, safe and well cared for.

Sandra


  • NSW, QLD, VIC

Hi my name is Sandra. (Mornington Peninsula Local ) I miss having my pets and companions around after they passed at a grand age so its time to start pet sitting again.
I used to do a lot of house sitting/ pet sitting until my daughter moved out of home a couple of years ago. Over the years I have had the pleasure of owning dogs, cats, birds, fish, reptiles .
I have worked at the Mornington Animal Shelter and started my own cat rescue group
I rescued a litter of puppies, tube feeding them and raising them until they were 3 months old before finding good homes for them. Im a responsible adult, clean and house proud. To me animals bring love and laughter and companionship.
I have references and a police check.
Im happy to house sit around the Mornington Peninsula, Chelsea, Frankston and surrounding areas , remaining close to family. Looking forward to hearing from you

Brett


  • NSW, QLD, SA, VIC, WA

About me:
I am an experienced house and pet sitter that enjoys taking care of pets and seeing new places. I enjoy the opportunity and friendships that house sitting brings. I don’t have my own pets so I really enjoy spending time with the animals while house sitting. I am a trustworthy, responsible, clean and non-smoking Australian male (37). I have a lot of house and pet sitting experience. I am reliable, practical, and easy to get along with. Your pets and home will be extremely well looked after by a capable person. I am a serious house sitter, one that does what they say they will do.

I am currently completing my post graduate studies in Psychology. I have dedicated my career to helping people get through hard times and become the best version of themselves. I am off campus so I study from home and this allows for additional time with the pets and keeping an eye on the house. This is part of why I have decided to do house sitting. The other reason is that I really enjoy it! I enjoy the variety of living in new places and meeting new and interesting people such as you! House sitting provides an enjoyable and adventurous lifestyle for me.
I have a current national police security check. In my work I have gained security clearances at the highest level that have allowed me to work at government sites such as ports, airports, government offices and defence sites which you need to have a clean record to obtain. I hope this indicates to you my trustworthiness. I have my own car and am independent in my style of living.

Pets I have looked after:
I go above and beyond with pet care. I love all types of animals and have looked after almost everything you could find in a backyard. This includes mostly dogs, cats and budgies, but also parrots, stick-insects, lizards, snakes, horses, chickens, ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs, hermit crabs and even a tarantula! I do my best to not disrupt your pet’s routines so I feed them and walk them as close as possible to the same time that you do. I am happy to spend extra time with needy animals that get upset when their owners are away. I always make sure all pets eat enough each day. I also can administer medicines, worming tablets if need be. Any special dietary requirements are catered for and an extra walk or games no problem at all. In the case of an emergency, I will contact you and drive your pet immediately to your preferred vet.

I have looked after many rescue cats and understand they can sometimes need extra time and affection. From 2013-2015, I saved, reared and fostered 21 stray kittens at my house. They all were tamed, vaccinated, micro chipped, de-sexed and found happy homes!

Types of houses I have looked after:
I have experience looking after large multi storey homes with extensive gardens and pools, houses on acreage, normal size family homes and small apartments.

Extra things I can do:
If you like I am happy to send you email or text updates on the house and pets so that you know everything is ok and see how your furry friends are going.
Clean the pool if you have one.
Mow the lawn and water the gardens.
I will collect the mail every day and If you like I can forward you any important mail via email if you need me too.
Put out/bring in the garbage bins
Start car if needed to prevent battery going flat (please note I have my own car and would not drive yours).
I leave the house fully cleaned before you come back so that you arrive to a fresh tidy home. This includes the pool and gardens. I can also mow the lawn if you need it.
I can also pick up some groceries before you come home so you can take it easy when you arrive. Most people like to come home to fresh milk, bread and juice.

A quick note
I also prefer that we have a written agreement that outlines my duties with detailed instructions, vet contact, trusted person or family member contact (if you are overseas), authority to be in the house while your away (Id like it if the neighbours don’t think I am squatting in your house!) and any other things that may be needed to be carried out around the house.

I am happy to send you some references if you request.

If I sound like the type of house or pet sitter that you would like then please contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes
Brett

Gary: 51, Naturopath / Vanessa: 49, Writer / Alfred: 19 Student

Hi I am Gary of a family of three. We are very loving and family orientated. Over the decades, we have had many animals in our family, so far: dogs, cats, guinea pigs, a bird, chickens, fish and mice. We are still looking for a forever-home dog after our rescue-dog, Bella, died in 2017.

We believe in sustainability and alternative environmental options instead of industrial/chemical options - if we have to use a mainstream option we don't mind, but obviously environmental is our first choice. We love and accept all the people and culture that embodies our beautiful Earth. Our lives are simple and we aren't too radical when it comes to our social life. We do like meeting new people, however.

We have owned our home in the past and are conscious of maintenance and upkeep to ensure the house retains its value. We always leave the home in the way we found it. It would be an honour to care for your home, your pets and your garden. We take pride in our housekeeping.

We are new to House Sitting and are on our second assignment. Both assignments were personally offered to us. Please see our reference from the first assignment. Our current assignment is complete on 11 July – we can supply a reference when the homeowners return from being abroad. We are happy to discuss any issue regarding your needs. Please contact us.

My interests are fishing, gardening, spiritual matters, natural medicines, reading, walking, cooking and renovating. (Police clearance)

Vanessa's interests are arts and crafts, religion/mythology/spirituality/fairytales, Wisdom Crosswords and cryptograms, gardening, home preserves, board games/cards, bargain hunting, upcycling/recycling, music and family. (Police Clearance)

Alfred's interests are gaming, reading, creative writing, film, family movie night, entomology (insects) and neuroscience. He is on his Gap Year 2019.

Although we have no experience, we are willing to train regarding the care of farm animals and horses.

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.

Loretta


  • 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 ..

John


  • NSW

I am currently living in a Retirement Village. I am free to come and go as I please. I wish to become a house sitter as I want to experience living in various locations. I plan to sell my rented home in Sydney and buy a unit in Sydney or country NSW on the coast in which to live. I have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. As my children had pets I have had experience caring for cats & dogs. I am fit and I can mow lawns and attend to a garden as well if the stay is long enough. I am a tidy individual who likes to live in a clean well kept environment. I am a man of sober habits & I exercise regularly and meditate to keep physically and mentally fit.

John Harkins bio:

John graduated from the University of NSW as an Engineer and operated his own management consulting company for many years (www.unitconsulting.com.au). John is a retired Reserve Naval Officer.A Character Reference & a Police Check are enclosed.

JOHN HARKINS’ CHARACTER REFERENCE PROVIDED BY EMAIL

Fri 2/06/2017 1:52 PM

RE: John Harkins Character Reference

I have known John Harkins for approximately 20 years.

In my role as a business managers and owner, I have worked with many contractors and consultants, and in my opinion John is one of the most honest, hardworking, tenacious and principled people I know.

As far as is reasonably, or even unreasonably possible, John will do exactly as he promised he would do, on time or early, and will tell the absolute truth about what has happened and why. In other words, if John tells you about the past, then it happened, and if he tells you about the future, then it will happen! Naturally, John can be proven wrong by circumstance and outside forces, but when it comes to things turning out the way he promised, he will make extraordinary efforts to ensure that you can rely on his word.

Further, John is extremely loyal to his personal and professional relationships and partnerships. If you entrust something to John, he will take care of it, and you, with all his strength and ability – and as a highly tenacious individual, that is saying something.

I stayed in John’s house as a “boarder” for a few days a week, for about a year, while travelling into Sydney on business a few years ago. John is a very house-proud and particular man, everything has a place and everything is in its place. He allowed me plenty of freedom to “make myself at home”, and looked after the property I left in the room from week to week, and his Golden Rule is simple: leave it as it was when you found it, or better.

In reciprocity, for a few days a week for a year or more, I allowed John to use my Sydney-based vehicle while I travelled overseas; he follows his own advice, always surprising me with excellent care and attention to my car; perhaps he leaves it full of gas, perhaps he takes it in for a service, perhaps he cleans it; common courtesy perhaps, but that’s exactly what you hope for, when you leave a valuable asset in someone else’s care.

In summary, I have no hesitation in recommending John for the role he has indicated he’s interested in (house-sitting), and I’m confident he will protect and defend the owner’s property, and consequently live up to your trust in him.

Kind regards
