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 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.

    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!)

    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.

  • Experienced sitter, currently sitting in Adelaide.
    Meticulous and careful in my own home and more so in yours. I was born to help others I am told. Love looking after dogs and cats and have a seven year old Cocker Spaniel, Dino. Have walked dogs and fed fish for past clients for whom I have been a housekeeper and cook. Have an 'Enhanced Police Clearance' dated May 2010 which was required for some housekeeping and cooking jobs.
    Youthful in my fifties, non smoker, energetic and interested in life - not overly opinionated I am told - like to think out solutions and have good contingency always as backups. Have worked in the past with very demanding people, both commercially for a Merchant Bank and in various kitchens.
    Australian and proud to be - born and raised - need to return to reunite with Aussie air.
    I don't wish to be idle during my visit, hence my keen-ness to provide a useful service. My husband and daughter have given me their blessings and will look after Dino the dog.
    My expertise in cooking is Greek from Cyprus with a view to filling the table. Traditional 'slow cooking' or BBQ expertise.
    Was born in Sydney, raised Queensland and left from Melbourne. Adelaide: my father is there and I use to live there. I am v happy with a chance to offer my help for a Melbourne family. I will feel quite at home back there.

  • Hello, I am semi retired, 44 years in the one industry, 25 self employed and operate my business from Eagle Farm, and travel to Brisbane 2 days a week, for 4-5 hours only per day, and back home by 4 pm at the latest, so if animals are a concern, they won't be alone for long, as I also like to stay home as much as possible.
    Although it's been a while, I'd like to go back to house sitting as I did in the past.
    I am extremely clean & tidy, quite fussy actually, don't smoke, or drink, and I would also like long term arrangement if possible, 6 months minimum, and especially acreage would be a dream come true, peace and quiet, I love animals and I'm happy to feed and watch over them, & keep a tidy home.
    My mother is in a nursing home in Brisbane, so I want to be close to her as well.
    I have many references backing up my character.
    I have 1 request, I have a beautiful old Benz, that is my pride and joy, and I use every day, that would need to be garaged.

  • 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 have been housesitting for past 6 months in the country area, Inverleigh, Victoria Australia.
    I am now available immediately Australia wide, preferably long term house/pet 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.

  • 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 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.

Dates available: 17 October 2014 onwards
Preferred area:
20km Brisbane north and Bayside, east and south suburbs
Occupation: driver and home cleaning business owner
Ages
63

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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!)
    We are in Australia at the moment and are happy to consider house/pet sits here and also in Europe, Asia and the United States.
    Thank you for viewing our profile. Please feel free to contact us anytime to discuss your house and pet sitting needs. We look forward to hearing from you and (we hope) caring for your pets and home.

  • 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.

  • 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.
