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.

This coming year we will be available from the beginning of July to end of August, and then again from November 2014 until the end of April 2015.
    We do have a dog who travels with us, he actually believes he lives in a car, with all our travelling between Gippsland, Victoria, Brisbane and Cairns.
    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.

  • 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.

  • Not available as we have house sitting jobs, March until September 2014 and December 2014.
    We have already house sat for family and friends, in NSW and Queensland. We would like to be able to do this more often. My husband and I have always worked our own businesses, for the last 30 years, we have now retired and love travelling, we have a Toyota Hi-ace and have travelled all around Australia including Tasmania.
    The houses we have looked after have been a joy to be in, some have had pets, including dogs, birds, tropical fish & gold fish. We have also looked after a couple of old horses and a couple of pet sheep. I love to do gardening and have enjoyed this in most places.
    We can supply references. thank you.

  • 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.

  • Experienced sitters.
    We have vacancy April 20 - 24th in Vic.
    Also a gap from May 25 - June 26 in Vic or Sth N.S.W.

    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.

  • 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.
