House sitting in Brisbane

House sitting in Brisbane

Brisbane is the capital and most populous city in sunny Queensland, Australia. While housesitting in Brisbane take a stroll throughout the lovely city and enjoy the sites along the Brisbane River, South Bank, the Shrine of Remembrance and the impressive Story Bridge.
Brisbane is named after the river on which it sits which, in turn, was named after Scotsman Sir Thomas Brisbane, the Governor of New South Wales from 1821 to 1825. The first European settlement in Queensland was a penal colony at Redcliffe, 28 kilometres north of the Brisbane CBD, in 1824. That settlement was soon abandoned and moved to North Quay in 1825. Free settlers were permitted from 1842. Brisbane was chosen as the capital when Queensland was proclaimed a separate colony from NSW in 1859.
The city played a central role in the Allied campaign during World War II as the South West Pacific headquarters for General Douglas MacArthur.
Brisbane has hosted many large cultural and sporting events including the 1982 Commonwealth Games, World Expo '88 and the final Goodwill Games in 2001 and the G20 meeting in 2014.
House minding Brisbane is a great way to see the sights at your leisure with sitters wanted in all areas.

Thank you - we now have a sitter for the coming long weekend. We have had several replies, much to our surprise, and have met some lovely people.
Thank you again for the service you provide.
Kind regards, Anne & Mike, Brisbane.

Kind Regards, Keith & June, Brisbane.

Hi Danny, thank you for the service that you provide for both sitters and home owners and their animals.
I've had some wonderful sits over the past two years, made incredible animal friends ( from chickens to speagles to cats to ducks) and it has enabled me to complete training in NZ....

-2401- Names . . Geoff & Maz White -2400- Names . . Diane Wiki
Dates available: 3rd April 2015
Preferred area:
Brisbane / Sth Qld
Retired and travelling - Experienced sitters
69, 66
  • We are looking for a long house/farm sit in Brisbane/southern Qld area.
    Geoff and I (Maz) are a retired couple in our mid 60's who have been travelling around Australia for the last two years in their 30 ft motorhome. Due to health reasons we now need to settle down and are looking for a house sitting job whilst we look for a place to live and whilst we try to sell our motorhome.
    We are quiet, non smokers who absolutely love dogs and love to get our 'dog fix' when we can. We always owned dogs and cats until we took up the travelling life and we will follow your instructions to the 'T'. If this means sharing a bed with a dog or cat, so be it. Geoff is very good at giving injections to all animals large and small, if this is needed (we owned horses and a house cow for many years). We are very fond of all animals and would not be averse to looking after other animals other than dogs be it domestic pets, reptiles or farm animals.
    Whilst we have the motorhome on the market we would need some space to be able to park it. It is a LARGE-ish motorhome. (9m L x 3.3m H x 2.4 M Wide). The motorhome weighs over 5 tonne so we need a hard and stable base to park, is long, low to the ground, front wheel drive with a scooter rack on the back so cannot handle any tight and steep driveways as she will 'bottom' out which could cause damage to both the vehicle and the driveway.
    A little bit about us ... We have been involved in the hospitality industry since 1984 having owned and run a lodge and a backpackers hostel in the Victoria Alps. Maz also worked for the National Parks for many years. In Qld we have been Relief Managers for independent living retirement villages. For 8 years we lived on a sailing catamaran sailing the east coast of Australia and venturing off to the remote islands of Papua New Guinea. When we lost our boat during Tropical Cyclone Oswald in Jan 2013 we took up travelling inland in a 'land yacht'.
    Since commencing travelling in early 2013 we have done numerous house/pet/farm sits along with voluntary work.
    We can supply references and both have police checks completed.
    We look forward to hearing from you.
    Regards Maz and Geoff.

Occupation: Semi Retired
  • I am an experienced sitter, reliable & trustworthy and look forward to seeing where the next sitting will take me.
    It is a great life style & meeting new owners, as well their beautiful pets, and I appreciate the trust and responsibility given me.
    I have been self employed for the past 25 years, and go to Brisbane 2 days a week, from 2 - 5 hours a day, and I am always home by 4pm, so if animals are involved they won't be alone for long. (A police check is done every year as part of my Business license renewal).

    I am 60, single, always happy, non smoker, non drinker, with good morals, not religious, but strong spiritual faith, and just love helping out where & when I can, especially getting to know the animals, they are the main reason I do this as my time is my own.
    I prefer longer sits 6mths+ but, I would be happy to sit for 3mths+, if that will help someone out of a jam.
    I am very clean in myself, my car, and my own homes, but more so in yours, as I am very grateful when chosen, to care for your home, belongings, and the most precious asset your beloved animals.
    I have personal & previous house sitting references that I would be glad to share, once I am being considered for a house sitting adventure.
    If you wish to know more please call me, or email me and we can discuss any concerns, Regards Russell.

  • I do not smoke and know that all animals have rights.
    From 2007, I lived with a Labrador and owner that always gave Otter the best meat and snacks. Years later it was a cat. This cat owned everything and got the best daily. When I got back from work, Snugs would clime up my jeans and take ownership of shirt. This was because he really liked me. When Otter died, it was the end of the world. Later when Snugs died, the ladies and I still miss Snugs.
    Most of my time is spent developing, debugging software applications. Sometimes I use my electrical masters degree to develop or fix hardware issues.

  • Experienced Australian sitters
    Completed another great house sit in Mandurah in 2014 and now planning our next trip - available again early December 2015 to end January 2016.
    Would prefer ocean views, large pool. Canal setting. Large home. Use of boat and car if possible but happy to consider any quality home in a coastal setting.
    We had a brilliant house sit (Dec/Jan 2012/13) and got really attached to our dog, Oscar! Heart breaking leaving him............
    Hello we are Lainey and Paul both 57 and semi retired. We live in the Cotswolds UK on our own Golf Course surrounded by 55 acres of beautiful countryside. We used to have our own swimming pool and associated tasks to its maintenance. We are used to maintaining gardens.
    We each have dogs, a Boxer and a standard Poodle.
    We have family living in Perth and visit them every year. sometimes in August just for a month or so but generally anytime from December to late March.
    We usually rent an apartment attached to a lovely house which is where we began our sitting with animals alone!
    The lady we normally rent from asked in 2009 if we would look after her Cats while she was away. We love animals, so agreed this was not a problem.
    We actually liked the fact we had our independence and trust given to us.
    The next year she asked us again, but this time she was away longer and asked could we maintain the swimming pool as well as look after her daughters dog. Again we agreed and really got into this WA life style trust and enjoyed the responsibility.
    We are trust worthy, we love animals. We would have great Respect for your home as we would our own.
    We are non smokers, healthy, love walking swimming and reliable. We love outdoor life!
    We can give you local WA references and you are free to CRB check us.
    I hope we can help you this year or next year. We have our own transport when we are in WA. We do like an adventure and prefer Coastal areas. I love Mindarie, Ocean Reef, Fremantle, Mandurah, Rockingham or Busselton.
    Take care and see you soon Lainey and Paul. 

    Our family - Bow, J, Oz.

    Yes, we do love pets !

  • Local Perth referees -
  • Dec 2013 / Jan 2014. Our contact details
    We feel very lucky to have met Lainey and Paul, two wonderful people that looked after our two dogs and cat December 2013/ January 2014. They looked after our home like it was their own too. Our dogs absolutely loved them. They took them to the beach every day, played with them and even took them out for morning coffee. Most surprising was our cat. She is slow to trust people and is generally quite fussy, they quickly won her trust and she too was smitten by them. We received regular photos and updates which was comforting and reassuring when you are on the other side of the world from your pets.
    We are delighted to have met Lainey, Paul, their lovely daughter and grandchildren, and highly recommend them.
  • Both Lainey and Paul provided house-sitting services for my family while on vacations from Years 2007/8, 2008/9 and 2009/10. For varying lengths of time from 4 – 8 weeks. Both Lainey and Paul were the perfect house-sitters.
    They looked after our dogs, walked them twice a day, swam with them, loved and treated them so well even taught them manners and became our family friends. We met Paul’s children and grand children and have remained friends.
    They helped us out in 2010 giving them just 3 weeks’ notice to change their own plans and to help us out when we moved house& things went slightly wrong delaying the move.
    They maintained our pool, kept our home looking nice, clean and tidy and our dogs loved them - perhaps preferring them to us.
    We have now relocated and unable to have a vacation right now but would not have any hesitation in asking Lainey and Paul back to help us out.
    I hope you find this information helpful.
    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need anymore information.
    Paul Jones. 16 Fawler Road Padbury WA 6025
  • Lainey & Paul house sat for us for 3 weeks over the Christmas/New Year period 2012-2013. This included looking after our 3 year old dog Oscar.
    I was a little hesitant at first as we have had some varied problems in the past with people sitting for us. I shouldn’t have been worried at all as Lainey& Paul both bonded with Oscar straight away & I felt confident that our house & dog would be well looked after while we were away.
    I have no hesitation in recommending them to look after your house or pets. Lainey absolutely loves animals& spoilt our dog during our absence. In fact it took Oscar a little while to adjust to them not being around.
    While we were away Lainey kept me up to date on how things were going even though she didn’t need to. It was nice to see pictures of Oscar while we were away having fun at the beach.
    If you need any more information regarding their time at our place please feel free to contact me directly.

Occupation: Retired RAAF officer, full time volunteer
Ages 60's
  • I am an experienced house sitter who is extremely conscious of the need not to let down home owners. My greatest disappointment is having to refuse owners who have had arrangements in place only to have a sitter cancel at the last minute. If I commit to you then you can plan your absence in absolute peace.
    I have an impeccable character being a Justice of the Peace, a retired RAAF officer and a member of The Salvation Army. I own three homes in Atlanta Georgia which I have rented out so am totally empathetic to the need of home owners.
    I have a gorgeous Fox Terrier who owns our home with my wife and I. My wife has a job here in Canberra so does not accompany me on Full Time assignments; however, she will join me during my assignment.
    I would prefer the availability of a vehicle although in major cities I prefer the use of public transport.
    I am in great demand...obviously I must be doing something correct. Therefore, its advisable to get in quickly. Overseas assignments are considered.

  • I am a responsible and reliable person, who also owns a property, in Mallorca, Spain. Therefore I know what it is leaving your home in the hands of a complete stranger, as I rent it out while I work in Barcelona, as a child educator, teaching English through theatre educational plays.
    I have double citizenship ( Spanish & Australian ) as I lived, studied and worked in Oz 5 years ago and I previously I also worked for an Aussie company here in Spain for five years (1997 to 2001).
    I really miss and love Australia, I consider it as my second home, that it is why I want to go back and settle in. It would be great to have time to finish my Diploma in Children Services, as I had to come back to Spain in 2008 because of my family, and I could not finish my studies then.
    I have no preferences in places around Australia, but I would like to be in a city where I can attend Uni classes and maybe work as a child care giver.
    Thank you very much.

    Jane, in particular, is an extremely keen, well informed and accomplished gardener. We love pets, especially dogs and cats, and sadly recently lost our long term Golden Retriever, who is much missed...!
    Neither of us has ever smoked.
    So all in all, we hope you recognise in us a warm, genuine, couple where your home and garden will be extremely safe hands!

Mum / Professional House Sitter
  • Hi there! My name is Lisa. I am 28 years old and live in Pakenham with my parents, daughter and son (2 years old and 9 months old), cat, five chickens, lorikeet, reptiles and tropical fish.
    I have a current police check and I am happy to care for pets of any animal species, from companion pets to farm animals, as well as to sit for owners of pet free homes. I am drug free, non-smoking, clean, responsible, caring and respectful. You won't have to provide a thing for my children as I have port-a-cots for them, as well as portable high chairs, safety gates etc.
    My kids are both very used to animals and are not afraid. They are also very easy to 'house proof' your house for as I have a playpen and safety gates for them to keep them away from dangerous / off limits areas in your home/ property. I also want to make you aware that I am quite knowledgeable about farm animals and know they can be unpredictable, so will not be taking my children outside with me to feed and water them, so you need not be worried about my kids on your farm :D
    I have a Certificate IV in Animal Husbandry (Domestic Animals) with training including dogs and cats, birds, rabbits and guinea pigs, rodents, fish and reptiles. I also intend to begin working for Wildlife Australia fostering and rehabilitating injured or abandoned wildlife when my children begin school.
    I have lots of experience with all kinds of animals, having owned and worked with a large number of different species over the years, including parrots, chickens, ducks, cats, dogs, fish, reptiles and horses. Due to my course, I am also quite knowledgeable about health and well being and have been trained in basic animal first aid.
    I have recently begun house sitting full time and am hoping to continue to do so as it allows me to get out of my mother's hair, and spend some time alone with the kids. I am more than happy to come and meet you and your pets and can provide references on request.
    I look forward to meeting you and your pet/s!!

  • We are a professional semi-retired couple from Ireland. I am an Australian citizen and have spent years in Australia.
    We are experienced animal lovers, gardeners and property owners, and international travellers.
    House sitting is not common here in Ireland but we have taken care of family and friends homes while they were on holiday as well as pets.
    In us you get the total package, there is nothing in maintenance that Michael cannot handle, add to that my expertise in keeping the garden and house clean and tidy at all times as well as our love of animals and you have everything you need for peace of mind while you are away.
    We are home owners here in rural Ireland and have 3 grown up professional children all now left home. We are now taking time to ourselves and intend travelling around Australia for the next few years.
    We are very open on dates, long term sitting is of particular interest.

    At home we will be leaving our own beloved pets with family, a beautiful 8 year old Pomeranian dog and a 10 year old cat both of which are part of the family. W
    e also have a lovely aquarium with a dozen fish.
    We spend lots of time in our 1/2 acre plot where we grow veggies and all our own
    flowers and plants.
    We are extremely house proud and our home inside and out is kept really neat and tidy and we would apply the same standard to any property we look after. Michael is a DIY specialist and have no problems dealing with any issues that may arise in the house
    inside or out.
    We have rented many properties over the years while travelling with our children and have always kept them to the required standard. For some reason animals seem to take to us very easily and we are friends in a short time.

    We are both non smokers and only take the occasional drink.

    If you would like to know more about us and how we can assist with taking care of your home, pets and garden while you are away please give us a call or email us at any time. (Happy to telephone or Skype you for a more in-depth chat)

  • Experienced sitter.
    I am a mature lady, who has owned and cared for many homes. I am trained in Security practices, but no longer work in that industry. I will look after your home as I would my own.
    I am a non-smoker, and only have a drink on very special occasions.
    Recently, I have done house sitting for friends and now would like to do it on a more full time basis. I would prefer long sits, with a minimum of one month, and preferably up to 3 months or more.
    I do have a couple of little toy dogs who are my family, and keep me company, which means I am very happy to be home at night. They are my security alert. I have a collapsible outdoor pen for them, and an enclosed playpen/bed for when they are indoors at night. This means they will not be running around your home. They are very well behaved, quiet, and will get along with your pets as well. Please don't let this deter you from selecting me, as they are actually a benefit to house sitting.
    I am a keen gardener, and would love to keep your garden watered.
    Please contact me if you have any questions.

  • Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Brisbane (by train and bus stops at present).

    Hi, my name is Jackie and I have recently moved from New Zealand to your beautiful country. I would like to housesit around Queensland for at least a year, to get the feel of the place and where I might like to settle one day.
    I owned my own home for 17 years in NZ with great pride. I then rented a house (raising 3 boys) for 10 years. I have an excellent reference from my landlord if needed, and he was very sad to see me go.
    I treat homes like my own, I have a passion for gardening and created gardens at my rental place, much to my landlords delight.
    I have always had pets and to be honesty, I am missing the connection to our 4 legged furry friends so I welcome any kind of animal.
    My partner will be here for 5 weeks over January before heading back to NZ for work commitments.
    Please consider me, I go over and beyond what is required of me, I will never ever let you down. Very happy to meet for an interview to discuss your needs.

  • We are a retired couple, Michael & Jayne, from Chesham UK, where we have lived in our owned home for 35 years. We are a reliable, trustworthy, practical, organised, active and tidy-minded pair, and will show every respect for your home and pets.
    We love visiting Australia, and have made 9 separate trips over the last 14 years to travel and explore many areas. (some Aussies that we meet, tell us that we have seen more of their country than they have!)
    Now our main attraction for another visit, is to be more settled, within 2 hours driving from our lovely son and his family, who have lived just south of Brisbane for the last 7 years and are now Australian citizens.
    We are both non-smokers. We love going on long walks, so a dog would be great company.
    Gardening is one of our interests, so we would happily maintain yours while you are away. Our other interests include reading, exploring the local area, swimming, (a pool would be great, but not essential) and keeping in touch with the rest of the family via internet. We have 4 children in total, and 9 gorgeous grandchildren in UK and Brisbane.
    We would be available from early January 2015, to mid March 2015.
    We can offer character references from Australian citizens.

Management Consulting


  • I am an international business development consultant that can work from anywhere. I'm originally from California, but come from Portland, OR in the Pacific Northwest. I am moving to Australia to be closer (in the world) to my retired parents in Taiwan and to focus on my Bucket List, which includes immersing myself into different parts of Australia and NZ by spending at least 1 month in each metro immersed in the locale culture.
    Although I have the propensity to easily connect with new people and respect their values from my years in international business, my years running a real estate investment firm with hands-on property management and the fact that I am a business owner will be the reason why you hire me. I carry insurance through my business that covers me from a liability standpoint wherever I travel internationally.
    I am responsible, detail-oriented, organized, and communicative. I can personally take care of mundane tasks from house cleaning, landscape maintenance, and processing mail, to complex project management, such as overseeing a remodel and coordinating permits with the local government.
    I love dogs (am allergic to cats and rabbits).

I enjoy walking and would rise early and take your dog for a good walk before it got too hot. I would play with the dog and brush he or she, no problem. chooks, cats, kangaroos, whatever you have!!!

My son has just obtained a position as a registered nurse at Caloundra private hospital and his wife is a legal secretary. My sister works for a group of medical consultants near Cleveland in Brisbane.

    Hello there. My name is Judith and I'm a young at heart mature aged Dutch woman who is fit, strong, healthy and happy. I am a non-smoker and vegetarian.
    By profession, I am an experienced artist / art teacher and have volunteered at many theatres and schools within this profession.
    I love pets, nature, people and gardens. I don't believe looking after your pets is simply about feeding them or giving them a quick pat. I genuinely enjoy the company of your animals and will spend and commit quality time with them to ensure their health and happiness.
    As an avid walker, I enjoy having your beloved pet as my company it's a wonderful bonus to my walking routine!
    I am a neat and tidy person by nature and absolutely treat your property as if it were my own - leaving the house in order each day. I also enjoy light gardening and can mow your lawns and trim them if you explain how your trimmer works.
    I have been house caring now for 36 months and completed 18 Home and Pet sits of which 1/3 rd. have been repeated and left with happy hosts & happy pets. I feel this speaks volumes of my high standards, reliability and integrity, with numerous verbal referees to confirm. I very much enjoy the freedom and diversity I receive looking after your homes and your darling pets, along with the stimulation that comes from being within a new community and all that this has to offer.
    I do prefer longer house sits - but am more than happy for you to contact me if you have short term needs as I may be in between house sits. I do require good mobile reception and also broadband as I am undertaking some online studies. I also thrive in clean and airy spaces. I will always continue to maintain the home environment in this way for you in your absence.
    If you think we are a good fit for each other then please don't hesitate to contact me on 0457393929. I welcome all enquiries and look forward to hearing from you if you would like more information.
    Of course, I have my own vehicle and can provide excellent references of past house sits. I also have police clearance.
    Thank you so much for your consideration and I do look forward to helping you soon. Kind regards, Judith.

  • We're a happily married couple of 40+ years (we started young!!) who live a clean and quiet lifestyle. Non smokers and non drinkers we try to be healthy in both our living and our relationships and place a high value on integrity.
    Gail currently runs her own professional home cleaning business part time, while for the past ten plus years Paul has driven trucks locally for the same company. Paul spent the early part of his career in the Navy, and has also run his own gardening business. We are reliable and set high standards in all that we do.
    For the past eight years, we've had two four year rentals, each time finished by the other party; though before that we'd done three years continual house sitting. We've treated each place we live in with care, keeping things meticulously clean - Gail can't help herself!
    Though at one stage we owned several pets, living arrangements have prevented this recently. However, we'd be happy to temporarily adopt your pet or pets, along with caring for your home and garden.
    We're moving back into house sitting as we'd like to purchase our own home again. Longer term sits are our preference.
    We'd love the opportunity to care for your home and hand it back spick and span on your return.
    References and police checks are available should you wish for them. Thanks for considering us.

    We did sitting in South Australia from August 2007 and have been in Queensland and Northern NSW since April 2008 doing a variety of sits. We still have some gaps in our schedule.
    We are also very keen on obtaining sits on the Gold Coast and in the surrounding areas.

    Hi, I'm Ernilda Disono but prefer Erni please. I am a full time worker as a care for the older people at Edens Landing in Brisbane. We are not the type of people who love partying or going to the pub. We do go but not like others that cannot wait for Friday or weekend. We don't smoke and we drink but not much and rather to stay at home so that if fall asleep just go to bed. Basically, me and my partner are just work home, home and work.
    We have been house sitting houses around Beenleigh before.
    We are very honest and trustworthy people and we are available now.
    Prefer long term but it doesn't matter how long (Short term on the Gold Coast and Short or Long term in Brisbane).
    Hope that this is enough about me for you to trust your house to us.
    Thankyou for your time and looking forward to hearing from you.
    Sorry, no cats but small dog may be okay.

  • Hello! Our names are Beth and Sam. We are a British professional couple who have come over to Australia to travel up the East Coast and to experience your beautiful country. We both hold 12 month working visas so we can be completely flexible to cater for your needs and time span.
    We are a loving, friendly couple who have vast experience, and a total love, of pets, and have both had multiple police checks due to the nature of my support work and Sam's volunteering. We are both house proud, non-smokers who enjoy the quieter things in life; a cup of tea and a good book suit us just fine!
