House Sitters

Sitters wanted for house and pet sitting
in all states of Australia

Find sitters available for home and pet sitting while you're away.
Have sitters look after your home, pets and gardens, collect the mail, and provide that lived-in appearance and home security as well as company for your four legged family members. House and pet sitters are available for all areas in Australia for short term and long term housesitting in
Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Darwin, Canberra, Perth, Tasmania, and everywhere in-between.

New house and pet sitters may register for sitting, writing a little about themselves and why owners should select them ahead of others available -
one registration for as many areas as you like Australia-wide,
a great way to save on accommodation costs whether it's for travel or work
or simply as a means to save for your own home.

Hint - help your ad stand out from all the others.
Include a little about yourself & why owners should select you.
Any sitting experience or skills with pets or gardens will help owners to decide if you meet their needs when they pre-screen from the lists of registered sitters.

Many owners do prefer to use registered sitters so please write a little about what you have to offer in exchange for your free rent.

House Sitting

Owners - Why use a housesitter?
Do you like putting your pets in kennels?
Will the lawn and garden be maintained?
Have sitters maintain that 'lived in' appearance, collect and forward your mail, walk and cuddle your dog and maintain your garden while you're away

Sitters - Why be a housesitter?
Home minding service = Free rent

From one to a few weeks = Cheap holiday
A few months = home renovation, work or study interstate
Six months to a year or more = Free rent or save for own home
For whatever reason, house and pet sitters can save $100's or even $1,000's by living rent free! - whilst providing a valuable service to the home owner!
Potential sitters should
register for house-sitting so owners know a little about you and can decide who will best meet their needs.
Only one registration required for all areas in Australia.
