  • WA

Hello there

I'm a healthy, active, competent, clean living, semi-retired teacher/education consultant, who loves to travel and experience different places and cultures, and find that house/pet sitting is an ideal way for me to do this.

In a former life I enjoyed living and working on a very large wheat & sheep farm in WA, so have experience of caring for farm as well as domestic pets.

I have a current police check, clean driving licence, can provide excellent references, and happy to answer any questions you may have.

Looking forward to hearing from you

Regards

Lorri

If you are looking for someone to love your fur people to bits, then we are the house sitters for you. We are looking for a housesit from 14/1/17 to 30/1/17 and we are otherwise booked until the end of October 2017.

Senior couple, non-smokers, social drinkers, in good health, refined, professional and very clean, considerate and quiet-living.

We have been house sitting full time for eight years and call ourselves pet nannies. We have Police Certificates and excellent references (which are available upon request). Think of us as the friends you invite over to keep an eye on things and love your pets.

Over the years we have cared for goats, a pony, fish, chickens, birds, but mostly very spoiled puppy dogs and pussy cats.

Geoff and Linda Foard
We are a retired couple in our early 70s with our own home in Busselton
Our hobbies include cycling, golf, bushwalking, bridge, tai chi, bowls and our garden
We have always had animals (cats, dogs, birds and horses ) but made the decision after losing our last much loved german shepherd that she would not be replaced leaving us free to travel
Since then we have done foster caring for the RSPCA
A couple of years ago we sat a number of houses in Queensland whilst travelling. We enjoyed this and gradually extended it to 12 months
We are non smokers, reliable, house proud, have excellent references and a police clearance
House sitting is a way for us to enjoy other peoples pets without the long term responsibility.

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

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 !

  • ACT, NSW, QLD, TAS, VIC, WA

I'm a mature aged, non-smoking female who has chosen to housesit as an alternative to renting. I've been housesitting since September 2011 and I really enjoy the lifestyle. House-sitting is a great way to save money until I can afford a place of my own, plus I enjoy experiencing different places. I love animals (was raised on a dairy farm), and am experienced in dealing with all their cute little quirks (and messes!) and providing a load of pats and affection if required. However, having a pet is not a requirement for me to house-sit.
I keep the homes I house-sit for in good condition and am very respectful of the homes I care for.. Owners have been very happy with the condition I leave their homes, gardens and pets in and I've had many return house-sits and referrals as a result. Any tasks that need to be done in your absence - like mail collection and putting out the bins - are part and parcel of the house-sitting lifestyle and I'm happy to do them for you.
I work at home part time for a super company and I also do some writing so I spend much of my time working on my computer. The good news for you is I'll be around to keep your pets company and hold down the forte, so your pets will be well looked after and your home will be well attended. I enjoy my own company and peace and quite around the house. When I'm at home it's just me, so you can rest assured that there won't be a continual procession of visitors stampeding through your home. Of course, I can go on about how responsible, reliable and trustworthy I am....but why not get in contact with me so you can decide for yourself. I have great referrences and a police check...what more can you ask for in a sitter?

Hey :)

I'm Suz. I'm an ex-vet nurse and ex-house cleaning business owner from Sydney currently travelling around Australia, seeing the sights and hiking the best hikes about the big brown land.

I'm 37, independent, quiet and tidy. And I love dogs. LOVE.

As of Winter 2017 - I'll be variably in the SA, NT and WA regions - currently SA for at least all of June.

I'm available for shorter term house sits- say 2-7 days or so. I can get anywhere that is 2wd friendly in my little Mazda 2.

If I was list my hopes of hopes for a housesit - it would include a nice area to stay, wifi and a washing machine :)

I'm open to sitting cats too :)

I have housesat before from this site and another - but I forgot to ask people for a reference afterwards and now it feels too late to ask :/ If I housesit for you I would really appreciate a written reference after!

Thanks for reading!

We are an older couple. We own our own home and we recently lost our little dog who had been with us for 17.5 years. Our little dog was certainly "part of the family". We are retired. Peter is a retired Senior Sergeant with the Victoria Police. He still works in the judicial system as a Justice of the Peace. I have a current Police Check. I was a teacher/school counselor.
We have had experience house sitting and we do know how we would like people to respect our property so naturally we would do the same for others.
We really love to travel and visit new places.
We enjoy walking and reading when we are on holidays.
Your house would be left just the way we found it on arrival.
We can provide references if required.

Hello Home Owners!

This year I am focusing on house-sitting around the Toowoomba area; some areas in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast; South Australia [ my birth state]..Adelaide and surrounds, the south east, Barossa Valley, Clare; and Victoria ..around and in Melbourne, Mornington Peninsular, Yarra Valley; and in and around Newcastle.

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 house-sits ..all with dogs, cats, birds, fish , etc., and even a pet python.

I am an inveterate animal-lover, with a rural back-ground. I do not smoke , and only have the occasional good wine or Guinness. I don't throw parties.. not even dinner-parties!! I bring my own mobile larder, laptop, printer, mobile USB internet , and mobile phone, so I do not need much,apart from some space in the fridge and the freezer. I have my own transport .

References are available.

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 :)

  • 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

Jayne


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, WA

Hi, my name is Jayne. I am 62 and a non smoker. I am conscientious, clean and adore dogs, like cats. I would take the kind of loving care with your home and pets you would take. I walk once or twice a day so dog walking is fun for me. I like watering and gardening and i even love mowing but must admit i can't always get mowers started! I started housesitting in WA about 10 years ago in Perth and Dunsborough for 4 years and have housesat in Queensland, port macquarie and the northern rivers. People have always been happy with the health and happiness of their pets and their house when they have returned home. I have been offered repeat housesits. I have great references. I owned my own business in Sydney for 12 years so you can see i am responsible and reliable. I am semi retired and work mostly from my laptop so can work anywhere. i design and make semi precious stone jewellery and whenever i get the opportunity i make no dig gardens and grow beautifully healthy vegies. I sold my home in New South Wales in 2008 while i was enjoying living in the Margaret River region of WA. I have come back east because my mother is elderly now. I have had the joy of owning 3 Scottish Terriers: Mac, Skye and Kiltie. I would like to housesit anywhere from Port Macquarie up through the Northern Rivers and Queensland's Sunshine Coast. Please contact me if i can help. Kindest regards, Jayne

Being from a farm, I am very used to caring for animals large and small. I particularly enjoy walking dogs.

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 .

Graham


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, WA

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.

I have many references from pet owners who you can speak to; including police personnel, doctors and business owners, so you can check my bona fides.

I have much rural experience and I'm rather handy with tractors, diggers, ride on lawn mowers, chainsaws and the like. Homes in my care have varied from farms to cute cottages to executive palaces and high security homes.

My preferences are northern rivers of NSW / sthn Queensland and the greater Sydney area. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks :)

  • NSW, WA

I am a single, non-smoking professional currently working in an ideal set-up for house-sitting. I am a freelance graphic designer who would consider it a privilege to care for your home, pets and garden. I have a healthy, quiet and relaxed lifestyle and am very flexible / can reassure you I would be home a lot of the time with my work set-up and have had a lot of experience in house-sitting over the past 15 years with excellent references (please read through these attached to my account for your review!). Why not give me a call to discuss your needs! I love animals, take regular walks for my own fitness, am very clean and tidy and would have the utmost respect for your home, ensuring your time away is worry free and you can count on returning to a happy, tidy household.

Anna


  • WA

I travelled east in 2015 after having lived in Perth for 18 years. I am wanting to do more house-sits and will be leaving my little girl =^:^= with a house-sitter until I eventually settle somewhere, although perhaps I won't settle and will continue to enjoy house sitting and looking after dogs, cats, birds etc.

I am an empathic person and love all animals (maybe not snakes and spiders!) and would treat your animals lovingly. I want to house-sit because I don't know where I want to settle. I am a very organised person and if left details of what is required I will gladly carry these out. I do not smoke and would rather be in a non-smoking environment. I am a very clean person and know how to keep a house clean, neat and tidy.

I like a nice garden and will make sure that the sprinkler system is working properly or that the garden is getting watered if it is dry. I can also look after a pool too! I am a friendly person and would love to meet you and your pets, and maybe also the neighbours. I have had dogs and cats as pets and years ago a bird also. I would treat your pets as you would treat them including loving them to bits!

There are two excellent references on me but I would also like to say that I have volunteered with Lifeline, working as a crisis supporter for people in need, a few hours a week. To do this empathy and caring are needed which I have in abundance, which can also transfer to pet and house-sitting.

For your interest, this is my home I have recently sold: http://www.realestate.com.au/property-house-wa-leeming-118633839

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
