House sitting in Brisbane

Brisbane House sitting

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.
House minding Brisbane is a great way to see the sights at your leisure.

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.

Occupation: Construction Project Manager
  • I'm a father of 2, living in a house with garden (Budapest-HUN), with looking after my father-in-law's dog. We're all keen on living in a tidy and neat circumstance. We both brought up with a slogan: 'you can only live and work in clarity'. At home we do every house works on our own.
    We are reliable people with good neighbourhood relations.
    As working in the construction field I can solve most of the problems on my own, though what I cannot I know who to ask for solutions.
    During my work houses and jewelery shops were left in my care stocked and furnished. By today I maintain several apartments (both empty and furnished) in Budapest, Hungary and in France (around Cannes).
    My wife is an economist, being an executive assistant to CEO and marketing executive. And also she is managing and directing 2 childcare centres.
    We would like to move from HUN. But before we settle we would like to have the opportunity of knowing the area better.
    The only criteria we have for house sitting is to stay there for minimum 1 year.

Occupation: Actor & child care giver & educator
  • 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.

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.

    Experienced sitter Booked until October 2013.
    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 25 months and completed 13 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

  • I'm a single 37 year old female who works for a wireless software communication company since 2008. I have worked in finance and operations most of my working life. I also hold a first aid instructor certificate through PADI diving. I'm a non smoker and only a light social drinker. I've recently moved back to Brisbane after being in London for nearly 10 years, to help my family while my father is unwell.
    I certainly understand the importance of house upkeep because I'm house-proud myself. I am reliable and being a home owner for the past 12 years know how important it is to look after one of our most important assets we'll ever own.
    My experience comes from owning my own properties. I first purchased vacant land at the age of 19 and eventually bought my first house six years later in 2001 at the age of 25. I later rented my house, in Caboolture, out and moved over to London in 2004. While living in London I brought (halves in) two other houses in Brisbane, which are also currently rented out. I've also own my flat in London since 2007.
    Before moving to London, I always had dogs, birds and fish and working at Pet Cafe (which provides nutrition, health care, accessories and advice for pets) in Redcliffe which certainly taught me even more about animals and how to care for them. I am happy to look after any pets, maintain pools and gardens as well.
    If you are looking for a housesitter and think you'll my profile sounds of interest, please feel free to give me a call and I'd be happy to met with you, provide you with copies of my written work references and also a current verbal work reference.
    All the best, Tanya.

I actually like living in different environments and have lived in many different houses and households over my life. I actually love cleaning and gardening, adore dogs in particular and will respect and love your home, as if it were my own, in your absence.
    I am fit and healthy, a non-smoker and don't drink. However I love music and belong to Brisbane's vibrant folk scene. So if your neighbours don't like guitars and singing I'm perhaps not the best choice. Otherwise you couldn't get anyone more suitable and perfect!!
    I have a small elderly, well behaved dog of my own that I would like to bring to the house sit arrangement.
    I am looking for long sits 6 - 12 months if possible.
