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.

  • Jeff and I are travelling and exploring Australia. We also wish to meet wonderful new people along the way and believe that house sitting is all about the people and their pets. So this is a great way to connect with others. We're confident to stay on remote properties, acreage or smaller suburban homes. We are happy to sit for any length of time, from casual periods of a week or so, to longer sits of several months if required.
    We are a mature, responsible, young-at-heart couple. We are quiet, non-smoking and in our mid 50's, enjoying the outdoors and find inspiration in the beauty of nature. To us, beach and bush surroundings are equally energising and we love bushwalking, gardening, bird watching, reading, fishing & kayaking. Most of all we love peace and quiet and our own company.
    We are efficient, clean and organised and will treat your home and your pets as our own.
    We owned a farm for many years so we have the experience and a close understanding of a variety of animals. We have been together for over 30 years and we make a great team, we will take care of your property and your feathered or furry family as our own.
    No longer having children or pets at home, we are now house sitting as an affordable way to travel around Australia. We love all animals and the garden and are happy with any length of stay and we can guarantee the safety of your home and pets.
    We offer you reliable, effective & professional service, full pet care to your needs. Home security & safety with confidence. Mail/paper collection, home cleaning, refuse bins, mowing, pot plant care, lawn & garden care, dog exercising, grooming & entertaining. Full animal care large & small.

    We are a married couple of fit, active, non-smoking, recently retired teachers. We enjoy travelling and believe that the only authentic way to experience a place is to stay for an extended period as a local. We are honest, trustworthy and can provide impeccable references.

    We took part in a very successful house swap with a couple in the UK in 1996 and have house sat several times in different parts of Australia, always with positive results and pleased owners. We have also used house sitters for our own property when we have been travelling so we are well aware of what is required in caring for houses and pets.

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.

Mum / Professional House Sitter
  • 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!!
