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: Semi-retired Construction Project Manager
Ages
71
  • Experienced sitter.
    I am semi-retired construction project manager, in good health and keen on regular long walks and `leisurely cycle rides. My interests range from opera to rugby union and everything in between including ticking off items on my bucket list!
    Having had a Fox Hound, Labrador & two mini Schnauzers in the past and also raised chickens whilst on acreage, I am experienced in looking after animals. More recently I have house sat for friends who have three dogs - a boisterous Australian Shepherd, two a Maltese Terriers and two cats. Being on acreage I enjoyed the experience immensely.
    I am well capable of attending to any maintenance you may require having supervised the design and construction of my own four bedroom three level house on five acres at Ocean View above Dayboro, including the completion of 90% of the interior and external finishing work myself.
    Using these skills, I have also served as unpaid Body Corporate Manager for the units in Toowong where I have been the only owner in residence for the last sixteen years. Apart from handling the maintenance program for that time, I have also overseen the construction of gardens and encouraged Community participation in growing vegetables.
    For the last four and a half years I have had a full time caring responsibility for an elderly friend now 85 and although he is now resident in the Salvation Army Aged Care Facility at Chapel Hill in Brisbane I still wish to be close enough to continue regular visits to provide mental stimulation and trips out to attend rugby games and meals etc.

  • I have been housesitting for past 6 months in the country area, Inverleigh, Victoria Australia. I am now available- immediately for long term sitting.

    I returned home to Melbourne Australia 1st December, 2013 after living in America for 12 yrs 9 months. I travelled the USA in between working as a house cleaner. I started my own business and because of my personality, honesty and responsible manner I was never out of work. I guess being an Attractive Australian helped also. All my work was referrals. Within 3 months of living in USA I had a full month worth of work and clients.
    I began house and pet sitting for many of my clients and their referrals.
    I have 12 years of memories, experience and loving clients who did not want to see me leave. I became a very loving friend and part of many families during my time in the USA.
    I am living with my younger sister and her two boys in Chelsea Heights. My sister is a single mother with a full time job as well as raising the boys. She is sleeping on the couch to give me her room. I am independent and we need our own space. Housesitting would be perfect for me and would help me get my independence till I get more work.
    Prior to living in the USA I was a Para Legal for 19 years. 
    I have many references available.
    I can be available for all areas and Overseas. I am a single woman with no children and can be available anytime. I have a current passport and no restrictions. I will even consider weekends and short terms.
    I love children and can also be considered as a travelling nanny or even a housesitting responsible care taker of children. My first aid skills are being updated.

    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.

  • Experienced House and Pet sitters with References and Police Certificates

    Hello from Paul and Pauline
    We are experienced home owners and house/pet sitters. (References and a recent National Police Certificate are available).
    We are a semi-retired mature and responsible couple travelling and exploring (home base in Tasmania). Paul is a freelance photographer and Pauline is an aspiring artist. Because of our work and interests our lives revolve around being "at home" wherever that might be. This means your home is occupied a great deal of the time and your pets have plenty of company.
    We have owned a number of loved and badly missed cats and dogs over the years and cared for many more in housesitting assignments. Animals in our care are always our first priority. We are more than able to care for all your pets' needs and able to deal with any situation that might arise while you are away.
    We are quiet, tidy and gentle people. Your home and animals will be cared for as if they were our own and you can go away with peace of mind, and come home to a clean, tidy and happy home (and pets!)

In-flight manager, Tour guide

Ages

  • I have always been a dedicated traveller so I chose my profession accordingly. I was working for 29 years with Lufthansa German airlines as an in-flight manager. Last year I took the opportunity of early retirement. Apart from doing charity work for our local cultural department - I take care of the artists during events - I started doing city tours in English for river cruisers, many of them Australians, who visit my lovely medieval hometown.
    I have travelled all over Australia, from Melbourne to Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns, Perth, from Ayers Rock all through the Northern Territories up to Darwin. Now, as I have more time at hands, I would like to experience a different way of travelling. Staying longer at places and really get to know one area, and then another, all at a leisurely pace.
    I had a dog when a teenager (I finally convinced my parents;)) but with my job and far away from my family home and couldn't keep any pet. That was one drawback I always regretted. But housesitting would link in a wonderful way caring for a pet (or SOME pets) and getting to know a country.
    I like to exercise, especially taking dogs for long walks or runs or use a bicycle.
    Even though I was so often away from home my plants just flourished - I love them and they seem to love living with me;;))
    As a professional traveller a beautiful, comfortable home has always been very important - and still is. As a matter of course I will look after any home with the same love and care as my own.

    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.

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.

    We both love animals, and my husband is very good with pets of all kinds, although he especially loves dogs.
    I am the cleanest, tidiest person I know - and we would both look after anyone else's home as if it were our own.
    We are what most home owners would call "dream housesitters" and we could provide glowing references if required.
    Ideally we would require a minimum stay of 6 months - and preferably longer.

  • Professional / excellent references.
    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 am a retired professional and my husband a retired businessman - New Zealanders who regularly travel to Australia to visit family.
    We have done housesitting in New Zealand and find it an excellent way to explore the country. It gives us pleasure to care for others' pets as our pets have grown old and are no longer with us.
    We are homeowners ourselves and have also been landlords so we are well attuned to the need to care for another's property as if it were our own. References are available from past housesits we have done.
