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.

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!!

  • 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.

Retired and travelling - Experienced sitters

  • Booked out in WA until January 2015. Available early February in South Australia for about one month and then moving on to Victoria. Would prefer a house/pet sit on or around the Eyre Peninsular.
    Hi. Geoff and I (Maz) are a retired couple in our mid 60's who are travelling around Australia in our 28 ft motorhome. We are currently booked for pet/ house/ property sitting jobs until early 2015.
    We are very interested in doing house/pet/property sitting to really get to know places as we pass through.
    We are quiet, non-smokers, light social drinkers who absolutely love animals and would love to get our 'animal fix' as we travel around. We have always owned dogs, cats, horses and a house cow until we took up the travelling life and we will follow your instructions to the 'T'. If this means sharing a bed with a dog or cat, so be it. Geoff is very good at giving injections to all animals large and small, if this is needed. We are fond of all animals and would not be averse to looking after other animals other than dogs and cats, be it other domestic pets, farm animals or reptiles.
    If you would prefer us to stay in the motorhome, this is fine. Then again, if you want us to stay in your house to keep the animals company, this is fine as well. We just need a little space to be able to park the motorhome which is 8.5m long x 2.4m wide and 3.3m high. The motorhome weighs over 5 tonne so needs a solid base to park, is long, low to the ground, front wheel drive with a scooter rack on the back so cannot handle any tight and steep driveways as she will 'bottom' out which could cause damage to both the vehicle and the driveway.
    We have both been involved in the hospitality industry since 1984 having owned and run a lodge and a backpacker's hostel in the Victoria Alps. Since moving to Qld we have been Relief Managers for independent living retirement villages. For the past 8 years we have lived on a sailing catamaran sailing the east coast of Australia and venturing off to the remote islands of Papua New Guinea. We are now travelling inland in our 'land yacht'.
    We can supply references and both have police checks completed.
    We look forward to hearing from you.
    Regards Maz and Geoff

Health care practitioner


  • 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.

  • Experienced house/pet sitters
    We are a retired nurse and teacher (73 and 60) having fun travelling around Australia in a Ute with a slide on camper. Every now and then, when we come in from the bush, it is good to have a break from the confined living space and to free up our vehicle so that we can explore an area and drink in the atmosphere.
    The idea of helping others to get away with peace of mind that their property and pets are in good hands also appeals to us.
    We have a wonderful home on the Sunshine Coast which we leave in the care of others, so we know what to expect from house sitters and that is what you will get from us.
    Animals have always been part of our life and we miss their companionship. We will care for yours as if they were our own.
    Experience with pools, daily maintenance and garden care are also part of our repertoire. 10 house/pet sits have been successfully negotiated and carried out to mutual satisfaction in the past 2 years.
    We are now (Oct 2014) travelling through NSW and after Christmas with family we will head south through Canberra, the high country, Victoria and SA before going north again through NT in about April 2015.
    If you are wanting a house/pet sitter along this route we are happy to discuss your needs.

  • I have been housesitting for past 6 months in the country area, Inverleigh, Victoria Australia.
    I am now available immediately Australia wide, preferably long term house/pet 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.

  • Hi we are Kiwi Nomads and have been on the road traveling AU in our caravan for 3 years. We are retired engineer and nurse.

    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.
    Blessings N&R.

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.
