Born and raised in Sydney-town, I pet/house sit full-time here, for free, as a lifestyle and have been doing since July 2018, and part-time before that.

I love the animals, plants and houses, the adventure, the savings. and providing a valuable service while you're away, in exchange for staying in your home.

I have references here on Happy Housesitters, plus many others from different house sitting sites that I can send you and whom can be contacted. My national Police clearance is also available.

Having been a homeowner and had pet and house sitters myself, I know that you want your pets as happy and healthy, and your home as clean and tidy, when you return as when you left.

I am good at following instructions on the care of your animals and your home, looking after them in the manner you want. And I draw on my experience of owning and sitting cats, dogs, birds, guinea pigs, fish, snails (really!) and chickens.

Mature, responsible and reliable, I am a frugal user of electricity, gas and water, clean and tidy, a quiet neighbour, fit and healthy, and a non-smoker. I have a Masters degree and work in the NSW public service.

I also speak Spanish if your animals prefer and like to send you updates, including photos and videos, while you are away.

Any length of stay close, or quickly accessible, to Bondi Jt and the Sydney CBD can work if I am available.

My Instagram account is @housesitsydney if you want to get more of an idea of what I do and how much I care. I post pictures of the pets I'm sitting there most days =^. .^= =^_ _^=

Send me a message through the site and/or call or text me directly on 0421-831-910.

Police Clearance (14/05/2019)

If you are lucky enough to find that George is available for the dates you are on holiday you should look no further for a house-sitter. George looked after our kitties from 23 December 2018 to 14 January 2019 and was one of the best house-sitters we have ever used in the 4 years we have been getting house-sitters to look after our cats, and we go away several times a year. George’s great communication skills and attention to detail was evident from our first meeting. He paid particular attention to the individual needs and routines of both our cats. Which involve a recurring urinary tract infection requiring special food and a very clean litter tray as well as a fussy eater. Two weeks before we left our cat Gracie had to have an operation to remove 6 of her teeth, we were assured by the vet that she would make a full recovery before we left but this was not the case and meant George had to give Gracie medication daily and well as give her special food (not easy as she is a very fussy eater) and finally he had to take her to the vet twice for weight monitoring and to check the condition of the stiches and swelling in her mouth as she had picked up an infection. As you can imagine, this was a very stressful time for us being overseas and far away from our usually healthy, happy cat. George however went above and beyond to reassure us and ensure Gracie got royal treatment!! We came back to a happy healthy little girl and we will be forever grateful to George for managing this difficult situation. George’s communication while we were away was fantastic and we appreciated all the updates, photos and videos very much. Our apartment on return was spotless, sheets had been washed, our garden was flourishing and most importantly our two extremely fluffy and clearly very well looked after cats were healthy and happy. Please don’t hesitate to contact me on laurenelizabethwhelan@gmail.com or 0449 268 079 should you need any further information.

George was recommended to us by a mutual acquaintance when we needed a cat sitter for a month. From our first meeting we had full confidence in George to look after our 18 year old cat. And we were not disappointed. When we arrived back home everything was immaculate and in order. And more importantly, Pebbles was happy and content. George also kept us updated with photos and messages while we were away which were greatly appreciated. We would highly recommend George to look after your house, plants and pets and we have already booked him for our next trip!

George looked after our house, cats and chickens for three weeks while we were away, overseas. We couldn't have had a better house minder. We came back to happy well fed animals, a house cleaner than we'd left it, milk and bread bought for our return. While we were away, he sent us updates and photos of our pets. Also, we forgot to do a couple of things on the day we left, and he really helped us out here. We have no hesitation in recommending him as a house sitter.

George has done an exceptional job with caring for our variety of pets including guinea pigs, fish, bearded dragon, multiple cats, and dogs. I left specific instructions for medications for the older animals which he followed accurately. I have no worries leaving my precious pets with George while we go on vacation!

My wife and I recently had George come and house/ cat-sit for us whilst we were travelling overseas for a month. George has been family friend for decades, and actually gifted my family a cat when I was a child due to an international move he was making. As a result, I had full confidence of his pet friendly nature and cat minding skills. It was a nice - full circle type scenario, to have him looking after my cat after such a positive experience taking over looking after his as a child. George remained in contact throughout the trip and as a result we returned to a happy cat and a tidy home. I very much recommend George if you are looking for someone to look after your house/pets or both.

George was a great help. During June of 2016 he cared for our cats, guniea pigs, dogs, snails, and fickle house plants. The cats required nightly medicine so they can be a pain. He also kept tabs on a lady who was assistanting with other animals. George kept us updated throughout our three week trip. All animals were in fantastic condition upon return. He is supremely responsible and we are grateful.

George took excellent care of our apartment and large collection of indoor and outdoor plants. When we returned from our holidays we found the apartment to be spotlessly clean. The bed linen was freshly changed and the fridge stocked up for us. I'd happily recommend George for other house=sitting positions.

I have known George for many years and he has stayed in our home as well. We have a dog and George is totally comfortable with dogs. He has owned cats as I know he is very good with them. George is reliable and tidy and responsible. He is very conscious of security and respecting your home and possessions. I have no hesitation in recommending him for house sitting.

George is a great house sitter, and I would not hesitate to have him return, as he looked after my two cats extremely well. He is also very communicative, and sent me regular updates and photos during the four weeks he stayed. Both of my cats were very healthy and happy on my return, and had received excellent care and attention with one being a fussy eater and the other needing tablets twice a day. I can highly recommend George to anyone looking for a reliable, responsible house/pet sitter.
