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.

  • Hello, my name is Christina & I have lived in Perth WA for the last 24 years but I am New Zealand born. My interests include animals, walking, reading, painting, photography & gardening.
    I am a non-smoker a trustworthy & honest person with sober habits.
    I was raised on a farm in New Zealand as a young girl, so I've always had animals/birds or fish that I've either owned or taken care of for other owners.
    I own a rescue rabbit, & recently passed was my own dog of 12yrs, who was a rescue dog also.
    Just north of Perth, I worked as a volunteer in a native animal rescue centre, which gave me an even greater understanding & attachment to all animals. I believe I am a very caring, capable, responsible person who can relate with patient calm confidence wether the animals are domestic or wild.
    Here in Perth, I have done a number of house-sits over the last 3yrs, as well as a house-sit in France [July-August 2014] which was a fantastic experience.
    My priority is to treat the property & pets as if I was the owner, & I have received very positive feed-back from the owners in all cases.
    I am 'police-cleared,' & I can provide the required information to you for contact with previous house-sit owners.
    Yours Sincerely, Christina

  • Experienced sitters.
    We are a fun-loving mature couple who are very house-proud. This means we will keep your house in immaculate condition. We love animals and would treat your pets with love and respect. We take our job seriously and would send frequent photos/emails to let you know how things are going and that your pets are happy with us. We are non-smokers and have our own vehicle. We have no pets of our own.
    Myles is a former farmer/transport owner/cleaner and bus driver at the SDS.
    I have taught in the classroom for 40 years and now own a tutoring company.
    We have had 3 house-sitting experiences so far. The latest one has involved us giving an insulin injection to a diabetic dog, so that has been an interesting experience for us. We have loved every sit so far, minding large and small dogs, a lizard, a guinea-pig and cats.
    We have 2 more sits over the Christmas/New Year Period.
    As a result of all this we will have people to vouch for us and the job we have done.
    After I retire at Easter 2016, we are off to France until the end of May. After that we are available to sit throughout NSW until the end of 2016.
    We look forward to house sitting for you and getting to know your pets and having lots of fun. You will not regret hiring us.
    Myles and Liz.

    Booked out till January 9th on a Morton Bay Island siting two dogs.
    Both of us adore animals and have had a Tropical fish, Budgies, Gold fish and lots of cats and dogs and even a wonderful talkative cockatoo.

    WHY WE WANT TO HOUSE SIT. My wife Jenny and I have finally retired and seeking warmer climates and adventures outside Victoria and on the various coastlines, near forests, national parks, scuba dive sites and where we can find clean air, peace and quiet as we search for our future home town; (with the WOW factor) but exploring Australia as we go. To be honest we are saving some money on rent, giving my wife and I a place to enjoy in someone else's garden and Pet-sitting with a variety of animals while we research the local area as a possible future home. I wont be disappointed if my wife gets addicted to it. We can Keep fit as we walk your animals so it will be to our benefit and a privilege in lots of ways to care for your precious pets and home.

    WHAT WE BRING : We both love animals and gardening. Both are Christian ministers and so trustworthy, honest, reliable and non-smokers or drug takers. Both clean, neat, tidy and use initiative where required. As very healthy fit mature age people we will respect your home, possessions, privacy, requests and expectations, more than able to handle strong dogs for walkies. We are flexible too should you have other needs attending to. We will leave home as we find it--neat and tidy and only when your are safely returned to take over the care and protection of your beloved pets and property. We will cater to your pets every need and pamper and pander to all their requirements and quite happy to keep you informed as frequently as you need to be reassured your pet/s are happy. We have both had a couple of independent house sit experience too. Of course references are available from professional people and those recent house/pet sit owners too. We have a lot to organize so contact us soon.

    Hi, we are Kiwi Nomads who were on the road traveling Australia in our caravan for 4 years, back living in NZ now but would still like to house sit if possible around or in above areas.
    We have had great feedback from our house sitting.
    We are retired engineer and nurse.
    We would like to spend some time staying put and thought what a nicer way to do it than to care for someone else's place and pets while they have time out. We have experienced both country and city life.
    We have also been seasoned travellers overseas and we are a very honest and reliable couple.
    Trust this is of help to you, thank you for reading this and considering us. Look forward to meeting you one 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.

  • 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.

    I have excellent references & recently looked after a friend's home while he was OS for 3 months, on his return he was amazed how the condition I left his house in as it looked professionally cleaned, every thing sparkling including his pool & garden.
    I am very trustworthy & would love to chat with you about caring for your property.

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.

Ages

  • 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!!

  • Hello, my name is Christina & I have lived in Perth WA for the last 24 years but I am New Zealand born. My interests include animals, walking, reading, painting, photography & gardening.
    I am a non-smoker a trustworthy & honest person with sober habits.
    I was raised on a farm in New Zealand as a young girl, so I've always had animals/birds or fish that I've either owned or taken care of for other owners.
    I own a rescue rabbit, & recently passed was my own dog of 12yrs, who was a rescue dog also.
    Just north of Perth, I worked as a volunteer in a native animal rescue centre, which gave me an even greater understanding & attachment to all animals. I believe I am a very caring, capable, responsible person who can relate with patient calm confidence wether the animals are domestic or wild.
    Here in Perth, I have done a number of house-sits over the last 3yrs, as well as a house-sit in France [July-August 2014] which was a fantastic experience.
    My priority is to treat the property & pets as if I was the owner, & I have received very positive feed-back from the owners in all cases.
    I am 'police-cleared,' & I can provide the required information to you for contact with previous house-sit owners.
    Yours Sincerely, Christina

  • 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 like to be in a place we can call home and look after the pets, wherever
    that might be, for as short or long as it may be. Our two sons look after
    our house when we are not there.
    As we have owned a multitude of pets and are home owners, we like the
    challenge of looking after most types of animals of which we find always
    have different personalities which make a sit a lot more interesting.
    We strive to look after your home and pets the way you would be happy with
    and you can go away with peace in mind, and come home to a clean, tidy and
    happy home (and pets!)
    Thanks for checking us out. Give us a call if you need any more information
    Thanks again
    Bonnie and Aaron.

  • Experienced sitters.
    We are a fun-loving mature couple who are very house-proud. This means we will keep your house in immaculate condition. We love animals and would treat your pets with love and respect. We take our job seriously and would send frequent photos/emails to let you know how things are going and that your pets are happy with us. We are non-smokers and have our own vehicle. We have no pets of our own.
    Myles is a former farmer/transport owner/cleaner and bus driver at the SDS.
    I have taught in the classroom for 40 years and now own a tutoring company.
    We have had 3 house-sitting experiences so far. The latest one has involved us giving an insulin injection to a diabetic dog, so that has been an interesting experience for us. We have loved every sit so far, minding large and small dogs, a lizard, a guinea-pig and cats.
    We have 2 more sits over the Christmas/New Year Period.
    As a result of all this we will have people to vouch for us and the job we have done.
    After I retire at Easter 2016, we are off to France until the end of May. After that we are available to sit throughout NSW until the end of 2016.
    We look forward to house sitting for you and getting to know your pets and having lots of fun. You will not regret hiring us.

We will be living in a 26 foot UK caravan principally as we travel the NSW coast-line up to Queensland coast too. (We put the van in storage where there is no room to park it on House-owners properties)
    Booked out till January 9th on a Morton Bay Island siting two dogs.
    Both of us adore animals and have had a Tropical fish, Budgies, Gold fish and lots of cats and dogs and even a wonderful talkative cockatoo. (sadly they all eventually died) More than willing & eager to walk dogs and care for pets so we can get our love for animals fulfilled till we can settle down again one day. Part of our healing too!

    WHY WE WANT TO HOUSE SIT. My wife Jenny and I have finally retired and seeking warmer climates and adventures outside Victoria and on the various coastlines, near forests, national parks, scuba dive sites and where we can find clean air, peace and quiet as we search for our future home town; (with the WOW factor) but exploring Australia as we go. To be honest we are saving some money on rent, giving my wife and I a place to enjoy in someone else's garden and Pet-sitting with a variety of animals while we research the local area as a possible future home. I wont be disappointed if my wife gets addicted to it. We can Keep fit as we walk your animals so it will be to our benefit and a privilege in lots of ways to care for your precious pets and home.

    WHAT WE BRING : We both love animals and gardening. Both are Christian ministers and so trustworthy, honest, reliable and non-smokers or drug takers. Both clean, neat, tidy and use initiative where required. As very healthy fit mature age people we will respect your home, possessions, privacy, requests and expectations, more than able to handle strong dogs for walkies. We are flexible too should you have other needs attending to. We will leave home as we find it--neat and tidy and only when your are safely returned to take over the care and protection of your beloved pets and property. We will cater to your pets every need and pamper and pander to all their requirements and quite happy to keep you informed as frequently as you need to be reassured your pet/s are happy. We have both had a couple of independent house sit experience too. Of course references are available from professional people and those recent house/pet sit owners too. We have a lot to organize so contact us soon.

    We are both non-smokers with clean driving licences.

    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.
