Most home owners prefer to use registered sitters and won't need to advertise as needing a sitter
as they will usually find someone suitable from our database at the time they start looking.
Feedback over the last 14 years shows there is much more demand for sitters than listed
as we don't insist on owners placing wanted ads when not necessary,
so they can retain full control over who knows they're going to be away.

  • 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.

Occupation:
Health care practitioner

Ages

  • I am currently taking enquiries for my services from October 26 to November 20 along the coastal regions of southern Queensland and in NSW. After November 20, I will be available for housesitting in Victoria and Tasmania until Easter 2015 when I will be returning to Qld. I am open for enquiries for Qld. assignments from Easter 2015.
    Hello, Thank you for taking the time to view my bio. If I suit your home and pet care requirements I would be delighted to hear from you.
    OVERVIEW: Your pets are as much your family as children; your home is what you have worked to provide for all your adult life. They are both precious and basically priceless to you and your garden and lawns, perhaps your pride and joy giving you sanctuary, beauty and tranquillity. I too appreciate these aspects and comforts of life and I would love to do those things which ensure these elements in your life continue to flourish with love, whilst you are away. You can be assured that you can relax in the security of knowing that your animals are being loved and cared for absolutely; your home is safe, respected and cared for; your garden enjoyed, maintained and appreciated. You can embrace your away-time with peace of mind.
    ABOUT ME: I am 59 years old and a health care professional. My work is now mostly internet based so I can work at home wherever home may be at any given time. Except for shopping for necessities and the like, I am a bit of a home body so will be available pretty much all the time to be with your pet/s to give them all the care, love and attention they want and need. They are my priority. Their normal routine will be maintained walks, feeding, cuddling, playing and sleep time to create as stress free environment for them as possible in your absence. Many people have stated that when they die they are coming back as my dog! They want to experience the heartfelt love, care, nurturing, play time and pampering yet with boundaries and loving discipline - they observed that I had showered upon my own dogs! I guess that is as good a reference as any really.
    I enjoy a deep love and respect for cats and I like nothing better than to switch off for a while with a cat curled on my lap. I find it very relaxing and soothing and cats just have that special quality of the it factor that endears me to them.
    I was reared on the land and married in the city. I am now a fully retired wife and semi-retired mum. I spent more time in my late 40s back on the land as a general farm hand in NSW and for the past eight years have been in the city again. I have a healthy dose of experience with horses, cattle, sheep, goats and chooks, farm wise. I guess I am pretty much a jack of all trades really.
    I am trustworthy, reliable and responsible with a terrific sense of humour and gain enormous joy in life from the simplest things. I am a clean, neat and tidy person by nature and I enjoy living in that kind of environment so you can be sure your home and contents will be well looked after. I am a private person and I respect the privacy of others I'm too excited and enthused living my own life to be bothered prying into the lives of others!
    My policy is to take care of people s homes as if my own and I guarantee to leave your place the way I found it or better.
    I will gladly take care of:
    Looking after your home
    Feeding, walking/exercising and caring for your dog/s and other animals
    Maintaining house security and a human presence in your home
    Forwarding mail and messages, and other communications as requested
    Garden maintenance as required.
    Once I've committed to an agreement, I do not change my mind at the last minute or disappear. I will be there for you. I am happy for you to phone any time to check up on things and/or word up your neighbours to come and do a spot check any time. Shucks, if you want to Skype in from time to time so your darling/s can see and talk to mummy and daddy over Skype any time bring it on. Now, does that tell you what sort of an understanding softie I am?
    WHY AM I HOUSE-SITTING: I have chosen to be a house-sitter because it provides me with a roof over my head and a sense of purpose as in caring for your animals and your home. I love my life as a house-sitter and I love taking care of the homes and pets of others. It gives me enormous satisfaction and pleasure. I can spend a little time with my daughter who lives in Brisbane in winter and my son who lives in Melbourne in summer without imposing on their lives or their hospitality between the two seasons.
    TIME PERIODS: I am open to short and long term arrangements along the eastern aspect of Australia. I rather like the idea of north for winter, middle for winter and spring and summer down south so I'm looking at Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Brisbane and out to say Woodford, Kilcoy, Maleny areas to the west during the autumn/winter/early spring then head south for the summer.
    Please note that I am quite willing to engage in any written agreements outlining secure guidelines between both parties and supply police check and references both verbal and written if required.
    Rest assured I will take care of your home and pets with all the love and attention possible.

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.
