House sitting NSW

When visiting New South Wales there are many places to see and things to do. Sydney is the largest, most populous city in the state and is the site of the first British colony in Australia.
While house caring in Sydney, take a drive around the city's many spectacular sights, not least of which are The Rocks, the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge - then spread your wings a little to visit the Blue Mountains, Central Highlands, Central Coast - something different in every direction.

Housesitters Canberra and New South Wales

Hi Danny, just a word about the site and the space it has afforded me.
I've had three sits since March and has budded into a full time 'career'.
I've got a sit for nearly six months here in Canberra and am manoeuvring myself into position to go to Europe at the start of next year.
... Anyway, thanks for such a good site.
In my opinion, it's the best site on the planet for 'house-sitters'.
Best regards....Robin, Canberra.

I have been House sitting for 11 years mostly through this site... many of my jobs now are repeat sits...
am currently fully booked until the mid January...
Ian, Australia.

I have now returned from a house-pet sit inland from Bodalla NSW - another amazing place, tucked up in the mountains and valleys. Cosy at night in the mud brick house, with the "firebox" for lovely warmth, and one aged Labrador cuddled up to me on the lounge, satellite TV. Delightful sunny days, with stunning views surrounded by forest, delightfully remote!! They supplied me with a car to explore the area. Such a lovely couple, who went out of their way to make sure I would be happy in their home. More satisfied customers!!
Sigh!! What a life I live -
Regards Gwen, Australia.

I am about to leave my house in Armidale in 2 weeks and travel to a list of 4 houses all over the countryside. One is Brunswick Heads, then Newrybar near Ballina, then Lake Keepit near Gunnedah on 5,000 acres for 2 1/2 months. Then I may be in Warialda near Inverell for Xmas! The Newrybar owners have asked me back for the 3rd time. They are really happy with how I am devoted to their 2 dogs.
I have met some lovely people through your website, so thank you...
Thanks, Tonia, NSW Australia.

as we don't insist on owners placing wanted ads when not necessary,

  • Hi my name is Tonia and I have very extensive experience of housesitting. I can provide excellent references as I love all animals and I always leave the house spic and span, so owners were always very happy with me and I received many call backs.
    I am 48 years old and unfortunately this isn't where I expected to find myself in life, financially speaking so it is the best way for me to get around and see a bit more of the country.
    I also love solitude, I am a Buddhist so some time on my own gives me a chance to strengthen my practice, I like to read and don't watch much TV.
    I really love animals but because of where we live I can only have 2cats.
    I have a partner who I may or may not bring with me depending on where the house sit is. Anyway, I look forward to hearing from you.

    Tony and I have just spent the last 2 years travelling around Australia. We still have itchy feet and even though we live in paradise here in the mid north coast of NSW, it was suggested to us that house sitting would be worth investigating....
    We are pet lovers and very practical people. Tony has been in the building game forever and is the world's best handyman, and my scissors have trimmed hair all around the country!

  • 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 and Asia.
    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 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.

  • 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 were extremely pleased to return home to find everything as we left it, and most importantly, a contented and settled pup.

  • 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 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 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 and Asia.
    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.

  • We are non smoking former public servants from the ACT now living in the lower Hunter valley in Cessnock N.S.W. After leaving the ACT we opened a successful Gluten Free Cafe in Kurri Kurri NSW. Unfortunately due to Ann's unexpected illness we were forced to sell the cafe and we are fully retired.
    We enjoy gardening, caring for animals and, having our own transport, we are able to travel to different areas.
    We are caring, responsible and trustworthy couple who will take to worry out of who's looking after your home while you are away.
    We can offer many contacts as person referees.
    We have had many enjoyable experiences house sitting over the past year, made some nice friends and repeat house sits and best of all the opportunity to explore different areas of NSW

  • As a non-smoker and empty nester, I find myself in a great position to help families while they go on holidays or even longer on postings.
    I have been taking care of people's homes now for over 6 years with great references.
    I have a preference for longer stays rather than shorter stays, and my career allows me to work from home a lot of the time - so your beloved pet won't be on their own during the day.

  • 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 and Asia.
    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.

  • Experienced pet sitter.
    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.
