Hi! I'm a teacher, Illustrator and toymaker. I work mostly from home so am able to care for your home and pets easily. I am a responsible non-smoker with many years experience house-sitting and am able to provide references on request. I am a widow with a lovely well-behaved 16-year-old daughter who home-schools. We both adore animals and guarantee we are able to provide the care you need for your pets. I have owned and looked after cats, dogs, bunnies, birds and chickens. I am also more than happy to house-sit where there are no pets and you simply need the garden cared for and house looked after.
House-sitting allows my daughter and myself to enjoy and experience the many diverse place in Australia whilst giving us flexibility.
I assure you your property and animals are in great hands.

Elaine & Michael


  • VIC

We are a mature, responsible couple who have had extensive experience over 3 years house sitting. We have looked after a wide variety of animals during that time including dogs, cats, tropical fish and chickens.
I am retired and Michael works part time in the construction industry as a mechanical plumber. We are homeowners ourselves and our home is now rented out on a long term basis as we recently purchased a yacht which we live on in Hobart. Our plans this year are to come back to Melbourne from early May to December to visit family and friends and tie up loose ends before finally cruising full time.
We are both non smokers, house proud, enjoy gardening and exploring new neighborhoods. We are happy to provide references from previous home owners.

ABOUT NICOLE & DANNY

Hello,
My partner Danny and I are both from Essex, UK and met 6 years ago. We are both very clean, respectful and caring. We are currently travelling the world where we hope to do some housesits along the way!



WHY WE WANT TO SIT

We arrived in Australia Jan 2018. We have fell in love with Aus so much that we plan to stay as long as possible. We are currently located in Sydney. We enjoy the company of pets whilst we are away from home as it helps us feel more settled.



OUR EXPERIENCE

We have grown up with cats and dogs as pets. We both love animals and have a lot of experience in dealing with animals.
We understand the main duties: care of a household as we have lived independently also for the past 5 years. We also have experience with looking after chickens.
We will look after your house and pets with great care as what we really want is some amazing reviews to help us extend our travelling trip as long as possible.



HOUSE SITTING EXPERIENCE

We are registered with a few websites and have now done 15 housesits across London, Bangkok, Melbourne and Sydney. Please see below our reviews- we are still awaiting on one review from a recent housesit.

We are so grateful to Nicole and Danny for the way they looked after our house, garden and pets, Rufus and Jessi , for almost four weeks whilst we were overseas. Nicole kept in touch and sent photos of the cats, clearly contented and comfortable with their sitters.
We could relax and enjoy our trip without concerns about what was happening back home.

We highly recommend Nicole & Dan as house sitters. They are very easy to comminicate with, easy going and flexible. A lovely, friendly couple who put our minds at ease when we met. We were 100% comfortable leaving our home and dogs in their care. The dogs were relaxed and happy and sad to say goodbye! Great communication throughout and our home was left clean and tidy! Note: Nicole & Dan did a 2nd house sit for us, organised at the last minute privately. As said above we were very happy and appreciative they were available to sit for us.

Nicole and Danny house sat for me 1 week in February 2018, looking after our 2 Airedale Terriers. They were good with following our instructions vis-a-vis walking the dogs and responded very promptly to our requests for photos etc. We came home to happy dogs and a spotless house. We had hoped to get Danny and Nicole to house sit again if we could but they were already booked up! I don't have any reservations in recommending them to future house sitters.

Natalie - Reservoir, Melbourne, Australia
Nicole and Danny were fabulous house sitters! Nelly our dog and Channel our cat both thrived in their care. It was great to get some updates and photos of our beloved pets whilst we were away. Both NIcole and Danny connected with our pets beautifully and Nelly enjoyed many lovely walks in our absence. They were happy for Channel to cuddle up with them at night and they were both very mindful of our pets eating and leisure routines. They have kept in touch with us and are genuinely concerned as Nelly has a tumor that is to be operated on and have both requested that I keep them up to date with how Nelly is going. I am very grateful to them both and highly recommend them.

I couldn't have hoped for more from Nicole and Danny when they cat-sat for us recently. I was delighted with a steady stream of photos of my two cats sleeping with them, curled up on their laps or begging for food, proving with aplomb that they were keeping them Very Happy. House was immaculate, fur-babies were well cared for. What more could we have asked for?

I keep healthy and fit and walk every morning. I work as a children's photographer and two days a week as a nanny for three hours.

  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

Retired couple who have had extensive house sits in Victoria and Queensland.
Good references available and because we are volunteers at our local hospital, we have police checks, as is mandatory for all hospital staff.
Indeed, we have been asked to return sit by hosts on a number of occasions.

We are active in golf and badminton and live a healthy, non smoking lifestyle. Any dog-walking is considered a pleasure, not a chore.
Past hosts have commented positively on the way we have left their home and garden. Importantly, we always turn up on time and have never cancelled a commitment.

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 have found it a rewarding experience. We 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.

Past housesitting assignments have involved the maintenance of pools and gardens together with the care of the following furry and feathered family members: (1) a Cavoodle, a Maltese Cross and tabby cat at Robina, Qld; (2) a 9 month old West Highland Terrier at Scarborough, Qld; (3) on 13 occasions (ranging from 1 to 3 weeks duration) 2 Cocker Spaniels (14 and 12 years of age) at Warana, Qld; (4) a 15 year old Birman cat, a 5 year old Cavoodle, a Budgie and 2 fish tanks at Palmview, Qld; (5) on 2 occasions, 2 Samoyeds (13 and 9 years of age) at Peregian Springs/Beach, Qld; (6) 2 Labradors (5 and 2 years of age) at Arundel, Qld; and (7) a 4 year old Turkish Angora cat at Toowoomba, Qld.

Trust your pets to a very intuitive, animal loving pet sitter, and your home to a caring, tidy house sitter.

I’m a 41 yo single female experienced housesitter, who loves the domestic life of home, pets and garden. A true homebody and animal lover, I will spend most nights reading and curled up on the couch with furry friends.

Why choose me to look after your home?

* Your house and your pets are among the most precious things in life, so you need to know you’re entrusting them to someone who cares as much as you do.

* I’m a single, quiet homebody. No entertaining. No parties. No coming and going at all hours.

* Non-smoker. Non-drinker (social only).

* Heaps of experience. I have plenty of homeowners who came home to immaculate homes and happy pets, who can provide references.

* I love everything domestic. I enjoy being clean and tidy and will treat your home with the same care and respect that I do my own.

* Huge animal lover! Because I’m unable to have my own pets, I usually end up best buds with the pets I care for and shower with attention (or not, if they prefer!). I have a natural intuitive connection with animals and know that some pets need time to adapt to a stranger in their safe space. So I'm conscious of introducing myself, earning their trust and befriending them at their own pace. I have the kind of calm energy that makes the housesit as stress free as possible for your pets.

* Garden lover. I spend every moment I can outside enjoying nature and greenery, and love the relaxation of tending gardens.

* I work for myself, so I’m home most of the time to provide lots of companionship for pets used to company, and security for your home.

I house sit as I'm a huge animal lover and can't have pets of my own and I really miss the company of furry friends in my life. I also enjoy periodically having space away from other people in my home. I look forward to talking to you about your housesitting and pet care needs.

  • 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 ..

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

  • Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast, VIC

Reg & I have owned pets all our lives and looked after many extras when our children have ventured into travelling careers or taken extended holidays. We are a very responsible, clean and tidy couple who take pride in where we live, we would look after your home as if it was our own. Reg is handy around the house (being a retired builder) and we both miss the everyday interaction with animals.
We are happy to care for your home and garden how you would like along with any pets on the level of care they need. We both love animals and are happy to spoil your pets. We had a swimming pool for many years so can tend to that also if needed.
We are a retired couple (60+) who have just finished travelling around Australia but not ready to settle down just yet. We don’t smoke and are fit for our age. We grew up and lived most of our lives in Melbourne but for the last few years have lived on the Mid-North Coast of NSW on acreage.
We can do long or short house-sits and are happy to travel anywhere on the East Coast. We can keep you updated about your property and pets whilst you are away too.
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to ask any questions. Thank you.

Hello,

I’m Emma, a local 31 year old teacher/educator, currently on hiatus and enjoying adventures house-sitting around Melbourne. I'm an animal lover, happy to work with your parenting style and I’m always grateful to share some cuddles and walks with your furry friends. I'm happy to be sitting while I finish some study and I’m able to spend more time at home keeping the pets company than many, which is quite nice for me too.

I’m pretty active and love being outdoors, so I always enjoy an excuse to go exploring with your dog/s. I keep things clean and tidy, don’t smoke and like to be pretty quiet and routine. I’m also a bit of a green thumb if you need the plants looked after and have experience with administering medications to pets.

I can help give you peace of mind that your house and pets are safe and loved while you’re away. Please feel free to get in touch to set something up.

Emma

  • VIC

I am a 50 year old single male recently moved back to Victoria from overseas. I don’t smoke or drink. I have a full time job Monday to Friday 8am to 3.30pm. House sitting interests me so I can save money and it almost feels like going on holiday living in a different house in a different area. I love all animals and have had dogs all my life and cats for half my life. I love to get out the house and walk dogs, I have looked after a dog with diabetes and blindness therefore giving the dog insulin injections twice a day. I am very neat and tidy and house proud. I could give references on request.

  • VIC

Not available until November 5th heading up the East Coast.

Hi we are Brian & Emily!

We are currently on a journey through Australia travelling around in our 4x4. Brian and I have both grown up with dogs & cats and have great experience and memories looking after them and giving them lots of cuddles and love. After living in our car for a while we’d like somewhere to stay for a short time to enjoy the country and slow down a bit.

In New Zealand we house sat looking after cats but didn’t get the opportunity to experience it more due to having a short time there. So we’ve decided to peruse it in Australia with the help from you wonderful home owners!

We both come from the lovely country side of Dorset, England. Where we’ve worked and lived most of our lives.

Although being young we have a lots of life experience and maturity, becoming open minded, hard working and joyful. Both of us have experience running restaurants at home and in NZ, we helped looked after Labrador dogs, cows and sheep in south west WA and have worked for jef tomson in Vic.

When I was younger (Emily) I helped train my grandparents dog and also enjoyed horse riding with basic knowledge on how to take care of them! Now older I helped my parents train their puppy before coming to Oz, I miss being around my fury friends a lot and really want to have a short time companion again!

Brian grew up with 5 German Shepard’s and 2 cats, he really loves having dogs around and can take great care of them with all his experience.

Being outside lifestyle people we love long walks and nature, so would love to take your animals under our wing while you’re away to keep them happy, entertained but also safe.

Important info:
Non smokers
Can take care full time due to no work!
Enough money for all things
We absolutely adore animals
Happy to help out with other duties
Quiet and clean!

We are a healthy and active retired Melbourne couple, married for many years, who have been both home owners and renters. During the past two years we have completed several house sits in Victoria, and we are now looking for another position, preferably for a period of three months plus.
We very much appreciate that the secret of good house sitting is to care for the home, garden and any pets involved as if they were our own, and are confident that we can do so as required.
References are available upon request. Please contact us if you wish to consider us as your house sitters

Hi, I'm Dan. I'm a 35 year old honest, reliable, homebody who loves dogs.

I began house sitting and dog minding four years ago, when I looked after a beautiful labrador for two months while her owners were overseas. After a few years of house sitting occasionally, I began doing this full time in August 2016 and am loving being able to spend time with some fun dogs and having the freedom to live a more relaxed, healthy lifestyle.

I'm experienced with a range of small to large breeds - from Chihuahuas to Great Danes - through my house sitting and volunteering at the RSPCA kennels. I will happily give your dog plenty of love and attention - I love going for long walks, playing games like tug-of-war, giving lots of pats, snuggling on the couch and I don't mind having dogs sleep on my bed if that's what they're used to.

I'm mature, clean and tidy, and am a non-smoker. I'm not much of a party animal, and prefer quiet nights at home catching up on my favourite TV shows or working on my laptop.

I'm able to provide a police check and references from previous house sits. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions, I'm happy to answer them!

Hi – we're a fit, non-smoking couple of Australians in our 60's, retired professionals, been traveling overseas for 11 years on our yacht and are now returned home to Australia. We are available year round, and can be flexible with start and stop dates. We love to travel and we love animals, and we will be happy to pet sit cats and dogs, as we have been pet owners in the past. Birds too! We can do garden and lawn maintenance, and as we have housesat previously, we can provide references. We'd love to hear from you!

Introduction
Hello - I am at a time of life where I am available to be the brilliant house and pet sitter you are looking for. I am a single professional, self-employed Australian with two adult sons (pursuing their own careers). With few family demands, I no longer need to be based in one location. I enjoy the freedom that house sitting offers where I can be a devoted animal lover to other people's pets while enjoying your location. Being agile and moving to different cities suits my Internet based (email traffic, not heavy downloads) work very well and as I have lived in almost all of Australia's capitals & various cities overseas, I am very much at home wherever I am.
I will consider any sit with a preference for long house sits (3-12months). I am open to being in any location, city or region…here are some of my favourites: NZ, NYC, Spain, Malta, Central America, Chile, most countries in Europe. I am self employed as a facilitator, business growth specialist and internet business mentor. I conduct my work 'virtually' via the Internet & Skype. This means I can work anywhere as long as I have fast, reliable Internet & phone reception. Both are critical requirements for me to sit for you. I always try to meet you in person where possible and certainly via Skype in all other cases. It's paramount for you and for me that we understand and respect expectations of one another and that your home and pets have the care you are entitled to.

Why I Want to House Sit
Through past house sitting experience & as a home & pets owner with my own regular house sitter for 6yr, I recognise the value of house sitting to pet lovers & security for your home while giving me flexibility & variety in lifestyle. I have travelled extensively over the years and am resourceful and socially inclusive. Your pets and home will receive my responsible and loving attention and I will be proactive by staying in touch to keep you informed about how everything is going without being a burden. You can learn more about me via my LinkedIn and business websites which I'd be happy to send you, along with my CV, biography and character referees, for information. I live simply and cleanly and will be very respectful of your home, belongings, security and privacy. I don't own a car anymore, so, I’d welcome the use of a car if possible please, especially for overseas or remote/ distance house sits.

My Experience
I promise warmth, openness, transparency and genuine care of your pet family and your home. My 'home based' work allows me to offer a strong presence & companionship for your home & pets. I have been an Australian Army Officer with a top secret positive vet security clearance (21yr), consultant to most Australian Commonwealth Govt departments and 3yrs as deputy chair and director Crime Stoppers & National Trust boards. I'm presently an 'Angel' with the Pyjama Angel Foundation. I pride myself on maintaining high integrity, sound judgement, balance, reliability and being a proactive communicator. I'm also very loving and gentle with animals. You can depend on me to keep you informed and to make decisions about your pets and home with your priorities in mind. I am comfortable with all types of animals and those with special needs. I will reach out to people in your immediate community network, as advised by you, if needed. I've been a home owner for 30+yr, an animal lover for life and I know the value of a quality house sitter. I've had the joy of 6yrs experience as a host to my own house sitter, so I fully understand and respect the responsibility that comes with this position.

My aim is to give you absolute peace-of-mind while you are absent while having a cost effective home solution for myself (as a 'local'!) in a new environment. I look forward to getting to know you and your pet family. My previous hosts are all happy to chat with you and I can email you their references if you wish. Wherever possible, if I am in your city, I will always try to meet with you and your pets in advance of the sit so we know that 'everyone' is comfortable. Warmly, Lisa

NOTE: It's always worth checking in with me in case I am free due to hosts' change of plans. I like to make contact in advance with potential hosts so we can see if we're a fit (for your pets, you & me) in advance of a future sit. Let's chat!
