A caring house sitter

Judith: 67, Teacher/Lecturer

Hi I am a retired Educator, having taught students from Prep. to University level in NSW, Qld (city & remote) & the Torres Strait, NT remote area, Taiwan, China and Vanuatu. Therefore, I have current Police & Working with Children checks in a number of States. My upbringing, lifestyle & belief system have resulted in me being a: non- smoker, reliable, honest, hard working, friendly & viewing each new situation in life as an adventure waiting to be lived out, type of person. I regard others homes and property with great care as I am sure they would want me to treat them, their home, their pets etc. with respect and kindness.
Raised on a farm & enjoying most animals & gardening I find I can still do the work, but ... a little slower. In my spare time I like to swim, bike ride, organise my stamps & coins, take photographs & listen to music.
I have attended Universities/Colleges in NSW, Qld, Hong Kong, China & Taiwan, receiving degrees & certificates mainly in Education but with some in business & specific computer programmes. Much of my life has been teaching primary & high school students, teachers, Indigenous Australians & Chinese educators. Being able to speak Mandarin Chinese I have been enabled to teach in China as well as teach Mandarin in schools in Australia. As well as working in education, I have managed a small, business, worked with cattle, built fences & grown many vegetables.
From 2012 to 2018 I have lived in my Motorhome which has made working and house sitting in any state easy to attend. I began house sitting in 2016. At present (May - July 2018) I am farm sitting in Victoria. I will then move to Cairns (August - October 2018) to house sit, then Brisbane (November) These sits do not require me to use my Motorhome, it can be stored.
I enjoy longer house sits but am happy to do shorter ones of a few weeks or a month. City or country residences are fine.

A satisfied farm/home owner:
"Judith house and farm sat for me for approx 8 weeks, she looked after my goats and chooks, fed them twice a day, kept the yards clean to perfection, My home was kept in immaculate condition and Judith blended into the small community, she is a very friendly, warm women, If you want a house sitter who respects your pets and house as her own, I would highly recommend Judith and hope she will come again..."

  • TAS, WA

We are currently travelling WA in our caravan with our 8 year old chocolate Labrador. Maggie is very social and we take her to parks, beaches, walks etc. to meet other pets, she grew up with 2 very crabby, old cats and some goldfish. We have just reached 15months travelling and 35000kms. We own our home in Tasmania and have a lady, her daughter and 2 dogs are caring for that home.
We have previously used the services of a pet carer when taking holidays. It gave us a sense of relief as we took our leave to know our pets and home were safe and cared for.
So far we have looked after;
1. A home and a ginger moggie in Lansborough QLD,
2. A home, 2 cats, a crazy Boxer, tropical fish and a turtle in Caboolture QLD,
3. 2 cats in Seaford VIC
4. A home and a Moodle in Tas,
5. Perth a 16yr old Jack Russell, Poodle, Velveteen Bunny and a Budgie.
We are an easy going couple touring our country, sight seeing, fishing and boating (our own).
We have both had different fur, scaled and feathered family members our whole life from Hermit Crabs to hand raised Lambs, Cattle and Goats, Bunnies and Guinea Pigs, Dogs, Rescue Cats, Budgies, Chooks, Ducks and Pigeons.
We do not smoke and socially drink.

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 .

Hi, my name is Julie. I am a happy, healthy semi-retired animal lover, who is mature and reliable. I own a small business that I run from my desktop. As a house sitter, this means that I can provide a constant presence to watch over your home and give your pets the same company, care and attention that you would yourself. I am available to sit right across Australia.

In addition to running my own small business, I have also managed a faculty across three campuses and been a busy travel agent and tour guide in my working life. Employers have entrusted me with valuable assets, large sums of money and the well-being of other people. I am reliable, trustworthy and well organised; mature but young at heart.

At home, I keep a very tidy house. I actually enjoy the comfortable routines of housekeeping and seeing the house look as neat as a pin. I never move anything, I am very respectful of a homeowner's space. When you return, you'll find everything just as you left it.

In addition to taking good care of home and beloved pets, I am happy to look after mail, provide regular updates and all the other things that will give you peace of mind while you are away. I keep in touch regularly by sending messages and pics of your little ones, as any of my referees will attest. I love gardening, am handy with a mower and all the day to day maintenance needed to keep outdoor areas looking great.

I am free to travel on flexible dates and take up long or short assignments.
I am health conscious without being obsessive, enjoy exercise and am a non smoker.
I have a police check and references. You will be able to call and verify references. These contacts can be provided on request.

"Julie looked after our house, our old blue heeler, our cat and 3 chooks for around two weeks whilst we were overseas in March 2015. We came home to a lovely clean house and very happy and well looked after pets. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Julie and would certainly love her to look after our house again" - Sharon Vincent Batemans Bay NSW 2536

Let us treat your home as our own!!

I run business workshops in multiple states of Australia and my 3 children travel with me and sometimes with an aupair.

Currently we live on 3 acres with dogs, cats, chickens, peacocks. goats and a pony and we will miss the chance to be with animals and look forwards to caring for yours and this is our main reason for travelling as house sitters.

For the previous 3 years I have managed a luxury retreat in The Dandenong Ranges and we also own a 42 ft Tiny home and we love exploring different ways people live their lives.

Looking forwards to hearing from you to see if we are a match. Plenty of photos available.

Hi I'm Lane.

I'm a quiet, considerate, creative type who loves running, writing, mindfulness, and minimalism. I have a reliable, new car and I love road-trips near or far. I'm a healthy, single, non-smoker and a quiet, clean house sitter. I'm a relaxed soul with high emotional intelligence and I'm a born-and-bred animal lover — dogs, cats, goats, chooks, and more.

I was raised country-style — on dirt roads and tank water, with ticks, leeches, and acres and acres of freedom — so I'm competent and well versed in country life. These days I have my own digital creative business which affords me the luxury of working from where ever I choose. So I'm not a house-sitter who's looking for a free roof; I'm a self-sufficient soul looking to experience life in lots of locations and to meet lots of people along the way. I only need Internet to work and I bring my own if required. I love running through the mountains, along trails, and beachside so locales like these are bonuses for me.

Bonuses for you is that I work from "home" so I'm always on-hand and ready to deal with any situations that might arise at your home. After-all your home is my home while you're away, and I take that responsibility very seriously.

Feel free to call, text, or email me anytime.



  • Sydney, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC

Hi my name is Erika,

I am a Sonographer (does ultrasounds) and Nurse currently working and travelling around Australia.

I am a responsible, clean and considerate 37year old. I do not smoke.
I grew up on a dairy farm where we also had horses, dogs, rabbits and of course cows so I love animals and being outdoors.
I like to keep busy and don’t mind getting my hands dirty so gardening, walking and feeding animals isn’t a chore.

I am very house proud and will look after your home as I do my own.

I have police clearance and references available upon request.

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 anytime. My preference is for short breaks, up to three weeks or so, and around the ACT or anywhere in NSW. Thanks. Eeva

We are a retired couple who spend a lot of time travelling both domestically and internationally. We also use our caravan around Tasmania. We live in a seaside suburb just south of Hobart and we have a 2 storey house with well maintained gardens and we are both very house proud. We have had dogs and birds in the past but due to our frequent travelling we don’t have any pets at the moment.
I worked with Tasmania Police for 27 years and can provide a Police clearance if required. Jenny worked with the Health Department for 22 years.
We welcome the opportunity to look after your house and pets if required.

We are a retired, non-smoking, quiet living couple.

We are well-traveled and when we stay in a property anywhere in the world we look after it properly and leave it in very good order, clean and tidy.

We retired last year and chose to come to Australia and New Zealand for an extended holiday (up to 18 months). We love the outdoors and are hikers and birders. We traveled in New Zealand for six months and did three house sits there. Two of the three house sits were requests to us as a mature couple while we found the third location that fit with our travel schedule.

We are now in Australia for about twelve months and will house sit in the country or in the city. We will be focusing the next few months of our travels in the south and eastern states of Australia (NSW, SA, VIC, TAS). We are in NSW for September and on a house sit from the 9th to the 19th. We will then be in SA for October and on a house sit from the 1st to the 14th. TAS will be December and January and then to VIC in February.

We are a very tidy, non-smoking, healthy and responsible couple that will take good care of your pets, property and garden. Before leaving the United States, we house sat for one friend with two cats (one was a very timid cat) and another with a black lab that we walked daily. In New Zealand, we took care of dogs, cats, fish, chooks and a cockatiel (see our endorsements). We have thoroughly enjoyed our house sits so far. The dogs loved their play time and walks. The dogs, cats and even the cockatiel loved their cuddles and neck rubs. Of course, meeting some of the locals has also been a pleasure.

With our stays at Airbnb's, the reviews are all positive where the hosts mention how we have left their place tidy; taken good care of their Airbnb and welcome us back anytime.

While living in the United States, we had an organic vegetable garden where we grew a variety of vegetables from seed. We also created a flower garden to attract the bees, butterflies and birds. Since we are not able to have a veggie garden while on the road, checking out farmers markets during our travels have been on our agenda whenever available.

We are having a great time as we leisurely travel “Down Under.”

My wife and I own and operate an online business, established almost 8 years ago. The majority of our customers are world wide. As a result, we are permanent travelers, but need to be in Australia to visit with grand kids and assorted family! We are animal lovers, and recently gave away 2 fabulous cats to a good home. (Normally our sons look after the cats, but they all recently left the family home in New Zealand!) We now have good experience in house sitting, we are very responsible people, and would treat your home as we would ours, and the animals and garden would be treated the same. My wife is extremely house proud, and loves to potter about in the garden . She is an extremely organised person and she looks after the house and me very well! Kays Dad was in the 2000 Queens Honors List in New Zealand (R. J. SHARP ONZM, For services to Dairying), because he invented the herringbone milking shed in New Zealand in 1952. Only took 48 years to get recognised. We can provide good personal references. We are non smokers. Broadband or good internet access would be needed.

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), a few dogs both small and large, 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.

  • TAS, Melbourne

Hi I'm Kirsty and I am able to house sit in Melbourne. One of the main reasons I’m doing house sits currently is to help me service my mortgage in WA since the end of the mining boom and the ensueing downturn. Another reason is because since my early twenties I’ve not been able to house any animals as a renter and now small unit owner. In terms of work, I'm a French and Italian teacher and currently work at an independent school in Keysborough. I have recently completed a 2 week house sit in Melbourne's SE suburbs, minding pets (cat, dog) and the garden. I have house sat several times for the same owner in Perth and can provide references for both. I’m booked to look after an American bulldog next month. I'm clean, honest and mature and people tell me I’m trustworthy. I have a national police check. In my spare time I like to do relaxation yoga. As a property owner/landlord myself I respect other people’s space and belongings and pride myself on keeping the owner's property as clean and tidy as possible.
I look forward to hearing from you.


  • TAS, VIC, Perth

I am a mature, single woman who is a retired teacher/trainer currently volunteering 2 days a week in Perth which leaves me time to look after your pet, home and garden. I am an experienced sitter, non-smoker, clean and tidy and enjoy a quiet life, pottering about in the garden, reading, pilates and the occassional swim. We always had cats, dogs and other small domestic animals in the house when the children lived at home and i have a little experience with horses and goats.
I moved to Perth (from the UK) nearly 10 years ago and have been living with my family (including the beautiful Sheila, the family staffy, 3 chickens, 2 guinea pigs and a rabbit) but now need to move on. I house and pet sat for friends and work colleagues in the UK and was often called upon to care for my brothers' 'boys' i.e. his 3 labrador dogs. I have also looked after a family friends' house here in Perth and her 2 very lively jack Russell dogs and now have several successful housesits behind me.
I can supply both professional and personal references and have police clearance

Hello Home Owners!

This year I am focusing on house-sitting around the Toowoomba area; some areas in Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast, and the Gold Coast . Petrol costs too much to go further afield, unfortunately.

Being a pensioner, and a retired teacher,I decided House-Sitting was my only way of having a break/ holiday from home. I have done several successful years of pet and home-sitting ..all with dogs, cats, birds, fish , etc., and even a pet python. I am police-checked a few times over [ for volunteer work], and hold a current Blue Card. I carry a pet first aid kit in my car.

I am a keen gardener, and may find a meal in your fridge or freezer on your return.I am used also to looking after pools.

I am an inveterate animal-lover, with a rural back-ground. I do not smoke , and have the occasional Guinness. I don't throw wild parties.. nor even sedate dinner-parties, as meagre pensions don't run to that!!!! I bring my own mobile larder, laptop, printer, mobile internet modem for my emails , and mobile phone with unlimited calls, so I do not need much,apart from some space in the fridge and the freezer, and access to wifi for my web searches. I have my own transport..a battered Falcon wagon with three dog restraints in the back.

Currently, I do not have any pets of my own, as my beloved Westie, Cailan, passed away last year.

References are available.

23 November 2017 To whom it may concern Re: Monica from Margaret River as house sitter As you are aware leaving one’s home and pets in the care of someone you don’t know is rather daunting, risky and worrying. Monica house sat for us from 2-20 November 2017 and I was delighted with the care she took of our dog and our home. I returned to find a well exercised happy dog, the house looking immaculate, that garden watered, the sheets washed, beds made up with fresh linen, and vases filled with flowers from the garden. I was delighted. I would not hesitate to recommend Monica as a mature, reliable and conscientious house sitter and would be very happy to be contacted to verify this reference. I would also not hesitate to ask her to house sit again if she is available next year. Contact details Janice Hill (Vickery) 540 River Road, Dwellingup. 6213 95381 381 0434 799 694

Our house was looked after very well and when she returned a few days later the dogs ran up to her wagging their tails to greet her.

We are a family of three who love to travel. We are responsible and value things so we keep them clean and tidy. Family: my daughter, my husband and myself. Very organised. Very reliable. Love pets. Have experience looking after houses and pets in Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane. Very knowledgeable of technology as my husband and myself are Engineers both of us. He works mostly from home and I usually work part time so am able to stay at home most of the times. Love to walk, clean and cook. Environmental friendly so we don't waste we save, - expend wisely. Very strict parents as well. Sporty all of us, we are no smokers, no drinkers, no party animals, we love to stay at home and enjoy each others company watching a movie or playing board games and doing some cooking.

In the photos: the three of us. Two last photos in Sydney looking after a house and a beautiful cat. He used to slept and watch tv with us :)

My husband Jimmy, grow up in a farm, knows how to manage cattle, horses, gardening tools, and in general any kind of pet or farm animal. Former professional cyclist and actively involved in it as a hobby.

I am a zumba instructor who works an hour per day, so I am the one who stays at home often.

Love to care for your house and pets. Thanks for contacting us!

If you are looking for experienced, responsible sitters it would be great to hear from you.
We are a retired Canadian couple and our daughter lives in Manly. For the last seven, we have spent most of your summer in the Sydney area. Part of our visits have included house and pet sitting.
We are currently renovating a cottage in rural Ontario, Canada. Our passion has been to build or renovate our homes. One of these homes was a farm with a small flock of sheep and various other livestock and pets.
Suzanne is a retired registered nurse and Larry a retired firefighter. Our activities include yoga, hiking, cooking and travel. We are responsible, active folks who would care for your home and pet(s) as if they were our own.
We are non-smokers and will provide additional references if requested.

My name is Rose and I am a mature age PhD student. I am currently living between Sydney, Lismore and the Gold Coast while I complete a professional Doctorate researching early colonial history (Sydney and Parramatta). My husband and dog live on a sheep farm in the northern tablelands of NSW and our children are married with lives of their own. Between us we have 5 granddaughters who we adore.

The reason I do house-sitting is because I love animals and miss my own. I get much pleasure caring for beautiful pets during my time in their life and it is lovely to receive unconditional love while doing my research. I enjoy the new experiences house-sitting gives me and have been inspired by some of the lovely environments I have stayed in. One of the benefits is making lots of new friends and I now have regular house-sitting appointments.

About me, I have always been a home owner, do not smoke and am extremely clean and tidy. I am also very security conscious. I am not into parties and take very good care of the houses/apartments where I stay. I have references and a Police clearance for your consideration.

I am happy to chat with you and also meet in person to say hi to your pet/s and allow you the opportunity to discuss your needs and requirements.

Thanks kindly Rose
