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.

Occupation: Retired

Ages 64
  • Hi! I'm Stella, a retired Nurse, done some nomad-ing, now keen to see some more of our great country, enjoy some community life getting to know each area, and think housesitting is a good way to do this.
    I have owned several homes myself and had tenants in them so am aware of expectations of homeowners. Having housesat many times for friends and their friends for extended periods, in one case a year, I find I enjoy this lifestyle.
    Being an active, outgoing 60+, I go for long walks daily, (so a dog would be great company), like animals, birds and once had a pet snake. Being a very practical, reliable, organised, tidy, self sufficient person, an excellent housekeeper, I also know my way around the garden. Through life experience living in remote areas/ cities/small towns, (childhood on a farm), I cope with most things calmly. I believe you will not be disappointed choosing me to look after your home, garden, house pets/chooks etc, and mail, in your absence. Also I am happy to have your dog travel in my Jeep (if your pet is used to car travel).
    My timeframes are flexible so can do short or longer term sits and plan to travel from Tasmania to SE Qld via Victoria and NSW. My family reside in Canberra so that is also of interest to me. Currently friends have me booked Aug-Nov in Qld . I usually reside in SA.
    I have bookings in Tasmania April through to 1st July thanks to this site.
    All my referees are happy to give verbal assurances to my integrity and worth and I am looking forward to talking to you (on Skype if that is easy for you).
    I will supply reference contacts via email when requested.
    Thanks in anticipation of your call.

They have trusted me with their precious belongings of their home and animals. They have always been very thankful.
    I will be arriving back to Australia on Valentines day from Germany and heading of to Mount Isa after two weeks after arriving to pick up my car. So I would be interested to find a Housesit there and also be visiting Upper Qld, Alice Springs, Uluru (Ayers Rock) Darwin, Perth, Adelaide and Sydney.

    Will travel anywhere for a long enough sit.

  • 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.

  • Hello, My name is Denise Franklin, a mature single lady, non smoker, non drinker, enjoying a healthy lifestyle, being interested in natural therapies and preventative medicine.
    I have been housesitting for 8yrs now, an animal lover, having worked voluntarily for the NSW Animal Welfare League, caring for and re-homing dogs which I have found very rewarding.
    Having been a homeowner, including pets, I can appreciate the need for reliable and caring housesitters and am conscious of the security needs for keeping your home and pets safe, giving you peace of mind whilst you travel.
    I have a list of referees from previous house-sits together with NSW and QLD Police Clearance Certificates available.
    I would like to hear from you if I could be of assistance to you.

  • 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.

  • 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. House sitting 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.
    For now I am interested in Melbourne, South Eastern areas however am open for all areas.
    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 house sitting responsible care taker of children. My first aid skills are being updated.

  • Experienced sitters.
    My husband Manfred is very practical in house maintenance and also worked in the hospitality industry for many years and likes things clean and orderly, this may also be partly because he is Swiss.
    I have been in the Aged care industry and hospitality and believe a clean efficient house, allows for a relaxing home.
    We had our own 5 acres for 20 years. Manfred converted an old dwelling into a 4 bedroom two bathroom home, with pool and spa. The last of children moved out of home so we started our gap year!
    We sold our home and travelled Europe and U.K. for 8 months, most of that time in a motorhome.
    On our return, in July this year, we started Housesitting on the Gold Coast and love it. We have a love for animals and have had a big variety of pets and farm animals over the years, we also love gardening.
    We will treat your home will utmost care and respect as well as care for your pets as if they were our own.

    His name is Jack, a six year old de-sexed cattle dog and is a quiet, very social, is used to being in the company of other animals. He really loves the company of other four legged creatures and has been associated with cats and chickens as well as Lorikeets and parrots but has been taught to chase cockies away after a house sit at Mt Dandenong in Melbourne.
    He is an outside dog except in thunderstorms, his best mates are a Shih Tzu called Tuan, Silky terriers called Rocky and Jazzy, and Rottweilers Roxy and Moe. He has spent lots of time in their company, while we were either house sitting or just visiting.
    Over the years we have house sat in Cairns, Darwin, Thursday Island, Wagga Wagga, Brisbane, Hervey Bay and Traralgon in Gippsland Vic.
    Unfortunately we do not have a caravan, hopefully one day, but we live on a boat and have done for 20+ years. We have been busy completing most of our so called bucket list, traveling overseas for the last four years, so it is now time to explore home.
    Preferred Locations: Locations between Cairns and Brisbane, Queensland Gippsland (Vic),
    We have available, Police Certificates and references both written and telephone.

  • Hi! I'm Stella, a retired Nurse, done some nomad-ing, now keen to see some more of our great country, enjoy some community life getting to know each area, and think housesitting is a good way to do this.
    I have owned several homes myself and had tenants in them so am aware of expectations of homeowners. Having housesat many times for friends and their friends for extended periods, in one case a year, I find I enjoy this lifestyle.
    Being an active, outgoing 60+, I go for long walks daily, (so a dog would be great company), like animals, birds and once had a pet snake. Being a very practical, reliable, organised, tidy, self sufficient person, an excellent housekeeper, I also know my way around the garden. Through life experience living in remote areas/ cities/small towns, (childhood on a farm), I cope with most things calmly. I believe you will not be disappointed choosing me to look after your home, garden, house pets/chooks etc, and mail, in your absence. Also I am happy to have your dog travel in my Jeep (if your pet is used to car travel).
    My timeframes are flexible so can do short or longer term sits and plan to travel from Tasmania to SE Qld via Victoria and NSW. My family reside in Canberra so that is also of interest to me. Currently friends have me booked Aug-Nov in Qld . I usually reside in SA.
    I have bookings in Tasmania April through to 1st July thanks to this site.
    All my referees are happy to give verbal assurances to my integrity and worth and I am looking forward to talking to you (on Skype if that is easy for you).
    I will supply reference contacts via email when requested.
    Thanks in anticipation of your call.

    My husband Manfred is very practical in house maintenance and also worked in the hospitality industry for many years and likes things clean and orderly, this may also be partly because he is Swiss.
    I have been in the Aged care industry and hospitality and believe a clean efficient house, allows for a relaxing home.
    We had our own 5 acres for 20 years. Manfred converted an old dwelling into a 4 bedroom two bathroom home, with pool and spa. The last of children moved out of home so we started our gap year!
    We sold our home and travelled Europe and U.K. for 8 months, most of that time in a motorhome.
    On our return, in July this year, we started Housesitting on the Gold Coast and love it. We have a love for animals and have had a big variety of pets and farm animals over the years, we also love gardening.
    We will treat your home will utmost care and respect as well as care for your pets as if they were our own.

  • Hi! I'm Stella, a retired Nurse, done some nomad-ing, now keen to see some more of our great country, enjoy some community life getting to know each area, and think housesitting is a good way to do this.
    I have owned several homes myself and had tenants in them so am aware of expectations of homeowners. Having housesat many times for friends and their friends for extended periods, in one case a year, I find I enjoy this lifestyle.
    Being an active, outgoing 60+, I go for long walks daily, (so a dog would be great company), like animals, birds and once had a pet snake. Being a very practical, reliable, organised, tidy, self sufficient person, an excellent housekeeper, I also know my way around the garden. Through life experience living in remote areas/ cities/small towns, (childhood on a farm), I cope with most things calmly. I believe you will not be disappointed choosing me to look after your home, garden, house pets/chooks etc, and mail, in your absence. Also I am happy to have your dog travel in my Jeep (if your pet is used to car travel).
    My timeframes are flexible so can do short or longer term sits and plan to travel from Tasmania to SE Qld via Victoria and NSW. My family reside in Canberra so that is also of interest to me. Currently friends have me booked Aug-Nov in Qld . I usually reside in SA.
    I have bookings in Tasmania April through to 1st July thanks to this site.
    All my referees are happy to give verbal assurances to my integrity and worth and I am looking forward to talking to you (on Skype if that is easy for you).
    I will supply reference contacts via email when requested.
    Thanks in anticipation of your call.

  • Hi! I'm Stella, a retired Nurse, done some nomad-ing, now keen to see some more of our great country, enjoy some community life getting to know each area, and think housesitting is a good way to do this.
    I have owned several homes myself and had tenants in them so am aware of expectations of homeowners. Having housesat many times for friends and their friends for extended periods, in one case a year, I find I enjoy this lifestyle.
    Being an active, outgoing 60+, I go for long walks daily, (so a dog would be great company), like animals, birds and once had a pet snake. Being a very practical, reliable, organised, tidy, self sufficient person, an excellent housekeeper, I also know my way around the garden. Through life experience living in remote areas/ cities/small towns, (childhood on a farm), I cope with most things calmly. I believe you will not be disappointed choosing me to look after your home, garden, house pets/chooks etc, and mail, in your absence. Also I am happy to have your dog travel in my Jeep (if your pet is used to car travel).
    My timeframes are flexible so can do short or longer term sits and plan to travel from Tasmania to SE Qld via Victoria and NSW. My family reside in Canberra so that is also of interest to me. Currently friends have me booked Aug-Nov in Qld . I usually reside in SA.
    I have bookings in Tasmania April through to 1st July thanks to this site.
    All my referees are happy to give verbal assurances to my integrity and worth and I am looking forward to talking to you (on Skype if that is easy for you).
    I will supply reference contacts via email when requested.
    Thanks in anticipation of your call.

  • I have house/pet sat in Canberra in the past and can provide contact details for references if required. I like that house sitting helps both sides out - for you, it's the peace of mind that someone is taking care of your home and your pets, providing security (mail collected, bins put out - appears someone is living there), and having your pets in their home environment while you're away. For me it's having my own space, being able to save on rent & bills and save for a home of my own one day, and getting to have the company of your pets.
    Originally from Byron, I'd like to move closer to home in a year so committing to sitting is my plan for 2014.
    I work full-time as a Landscape Architecture. I am responsible and respectful of others privacy and property.
    I love animals and grew up with cats and a dog, & a Menagerie of other critters growing up, so you needn't worry if you have pets - can assure you they would be in good company. I have also looked after chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, even a poddy calf at one point. For the latter I was probably out of my depth a bit, thankful for the experience though.
    I enjoy keeping myself busy, but also enjoy coming back to a quiet house to unwind. I don't smoke, I'm not a party person, but don't mind having dinner with friends.
    Happy to answer any questions you might have over a coffee so you can get to know me better or want to show me where you want some weeding done.
    Kind Regards James
