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.

  • 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.

  • Experienced sitter. Available again after taking time out to be with family. Country girl at heart. Lover of animals and gardens.
    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.

  • 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.

    My wife and I are both ex professional early retirees, with a passion for our home, gardening, dogs, cats, travel and meeting people. We take enormous pride and care of our own home and would ensure that trust and respect would be extended to other people's properties.
    We now have no ties and would be extremely keen to house-sit for either short or long term term periods throughout Europe (where we presently travel a great deal), USA (where we have family in New York and California), Canada (where we have only visited once but would love to return), Australia & New Zealand (where we have never visited but would love to in the near future, hopefully for an extended period). We are currently booked for house sitting in France this October.
    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)

    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.
    Thank you for taking the time to read this.

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).

    Hi there, I am a kiwi woman who has had her children jump the ditch and find Australian partners. I would love to look after your cherished home and pets and love them like you do. 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!!!
    I have a son living with me, who has slight disabilities regarding learning. We have had a pretty wet winter in Whangarei this year and I am yearning for some sunshine.
    I have children and a sister living in Queensland but as they are pretty busy, I like to be independent, but can stay part of the time, in between house-sits, with them. 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.
    I have done pet and dog sitting before and could give you names and phone numbers to check me out.
    I am not gifted in hi-tech stuff at all. Ring me and have a chat, or email me.

Occupation: Artist / Teacher
Ages 55 plus
  • Professional / excellent references.
    Experienced sitter Booked scattered throughout 2014.
    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.

Occupation: driver and home cleaning business owner

  • 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.
