Currently looking after a delightful dog called Occy whom I'm not sure how I will say farewell to at the end of the housesit. That has been the only downfall of this adventurous year interacting with the animals, ... becoming very attached to them, yet what fond memories!!!!!
My New home that I've been building is due for completion in January, yet I have decided I will still house sit / pet sit from time to time as I've enjoyed the experience so much...  Christine, Housesitter Perth.

Hi Danny, Well I hope!
Am on my second sit in Perth and just organised another for July holidays.
Thanks again to you, as all my owners have contacted me from the Sitters' list... Good job in doing it this way, as this makes it more comfortable for the owner to call the sitter first... All the best from the West

House sitters - New Zealand to Perth

We joined several house minding websites, and have been sitting around Perth and Mandurah on and off for the last 4 years. Housesitworld.com has been especially gracious and generous to us, if we compare it with the other websites. How? Through Housesitworld.com, we have been offered the most attractive house-sits in some of the most attractive locations in Perth, like Mosman Park (6-month long house-sit, utility bills all paid!), Rossmoyne (2 and a half months, likewise!), Alfred Cove (6-month long house-sit, with some minor out of pocket expenses!) We have unfortunately had some major earthquake damage to our own (rented-out) house in Christchurch--- so whatever money we have been able to save has been very much appreciated!
Yes, we have actually been very lucky, and owe Housesitworld.com ‘A BIG THANKYOU’.
May the luck continue for all of us.

Most home owners do 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.

Baldivis (Perth)
We had a sitter, through this site for many years, but she's no longer available, so now we're looking for a casual sitter, on a permanent basis who’s willing to accept a couple of week’s notice to sit for, maybe three days or a weekend.
We also have a holiday coming up August 2015 when we’re off to Darwin, Alice Springs, Uluru, Adelaide and home to Perth, around about fifteen days.
We have two friends, one in Waroona and another couple in Albany who constantly ask us to come down on the odd weekend, which means we’d also want the sitter for two to three days at a time.
We have our precious Chinchilla/Persian cross, Solomon, and a raucous Wiero, Caesar.
Solomon likes to go for walks occasionally but we keep a close eye on him because we’re a street away from a very busy road, which worries us.
Caesar loves to get out of his cage and have a fly indoors for ten minutes in the morning. After that he’s content to sit on your shoulder and poop on your back.
Sorry, we don’t have firm dates except August 2015.

Dates: Various ongoing short stays - Plus around 15 days August 2015.

    Completed another great house sit in Mandurah in 2014 and now planning our next trip - available again anytime early December 2015 to end January 2016.
    Would prefer ocean views, large pool. Canal setting. Large home. Use of boat and car if possible but happy to consider any quality home in a coastal setting.
    We had a brilliant house sit (Dec/Jan 2012/13) and got really attached to our dog, Oscar! Heart breaking leaving him............
    Hello we are Lainey and Paul both 57 and semi retired. We live in the Cotswolds UK on our own Golf Course surrounded by 55 acres of beautiful countryside. We used to have our own swimming pool and associated tasks to its maintenance. We are used to maintaining gardens.
    We each have dogs, a Boxer and a standard Poodle.
    We have family living in Perth and visit them every year. sometimes in August just for a month or so but generally anytime from December to late March.
    We usually rent an apartment attached to a lovely house which is where we began our sitting with animals alone!
    The lady we normally rent from asked in 2009 if we would look after her Cats while she was away. We love animals, so agreed this was not a problem.
    We actually liked the fact we had our independence and trust given to us.
    The next year she asked us again, but this time she was away longer and asked could we maintain the swimming pool as well as look after her daughters dog. Again we agreed and really got into this WA life style trust and enjoyed the responsibility.
    We are trust worthy, we love animals. We would have great Respect for your home as we would our own.
    We are non smokers, healthy, love walking swimming and reliable. We love outdoor life!
    We can give you local WA references and you are free to CRB check us.

    We feel very lucky to have met Lainey and Paul, two wonderful people that looked after our two dogs and cat December 2013/ January 2014. They looked after our home like it was their own too. Our dogs absolutely loved them. They took them to the beach every day, played with them and even took them out for morning coffee. Most surprising was our cat. She is slow to trust people and is generally quite fussy, they quickly won her trust and she too was smitten by them. We received regular photos and updates which was comforting and reassuring when you are on the other side of the world from your pets.
    We are delighted to have met Lainey, Paul, their lovely daughter and grandchildren, and highly recommend them.
  • Both Lainey and Paul provided house-sitting services for my family while on vacations from Years 2007/8, 2008/9 and 2009/10. For varying lengths of time from 4 – 8 weeks. Both Lainey and Paul were the perfect house-sitters.
    They looked after our dogs, walked them twice a day, swam with them, loved and treated them so well even taught them manners and became our family friends. We met Paul’s children and grand children and have remained friends.
    They helped us out in 2010 giving them just 3 weeks’ notice to change their own plans and to help us out when we moved house& things went slightly wrong delaying the move.
    They maintained our pool, kept our home looking nice, clean and tidy and our dogs loved them - perhaps preferring them to us.
    We have now relocated and unable to have a vacation right now but would not have any hesitation in asking Lainey and Paul back to help us out.
    I hope you find this information helpful.
    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need anymore information.
    Paul Jones. 16 Fawler Road Padbury WA 6025
  • Lainey & Paul house sat for us for 3 weeks over the Christmas/New Year period 2012-2013. This included looking after our 3 year old dog Oscar.
    I was a little hesitant at first as we have had some varied problems in the past with people sitting for us. I shouldn’t have been worried at all as Lainey& Paul both bonded with Oscar straight away & I felt confident that our house & dog would be well looked after while we were away.
    I have no hesitation in recommending them to look after your house or pets. Lainey absolutely loves animals& spoilt our dog during our absence. In fact it took Oscar a little while to adjust to them not being around.
    While we were away Lainey kept me up to date on how things were going even though she didn’t need to. It was nice to see pictures of Oscar while we were away having fun at the beach.
    If you need any more information regarding their time at our place please feel free to contact me directly.

  • 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.

  • 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!!

Dates available: From approx. 1st October 2015 onwards
Preferred area: Perth plus 80 km south of Perth CBD
Occupation: Semi-retired IT-Professional and Plant Operator
Ages
55 & 62
  • Very experienced House-Sitters
    We are a married, honest and caring couple in our fifties/sixties, housesitting around Perth as a way of discovering this beautiful region. We don't have any children or own pets with us. Our plan is to eventually settle here. Both non-smokers / non-drinkers, we enjoy living a clean and quiet, but active lifestyle.
    Magdalena is a semi-retired IT-professional from Germany. She is a meticulous house- keeper, able to stay home mostly as company for pets, and as extra security for the house, as she works from home. She loves walking in general, but far more with a lovely dog-companion. We would be very happy to take your dog to the beach, if this is OK with you or other interesting places, so he/she can experience different environments. You can be assured that your pets get enough exercise.
    Lyndon is a Kiwi, currently working as a plant operator in Kwinana, south of Perth. He has spent many years living on farms, as a contract logger in pine forests in N.Z., Tasmania and N.S.W. He is also a capable handyman and gardener. During any spare time, he's working on his first novel - ten year plan!
    Being proud home-owners ourselves, back in Christchurch N.Z., we do really appreciate the need to respect and take good care of other people's homes, gardens and their belongings.
    So far we have done about ten house-sits in and around Perth, varying in length from a few days to six months. We truly love animals. So far we have cared for cats and dogs, budgies, galahs and gold-fish. While housesitting, we have gained pool-maintenance experience.
    We are happy to provide police-clearances, as well as excellent references from previous satisfied house-owners.
    Our intention is that you can leave with confidence and enjoy your holidays, knowing that your pets are very much loved and cared for and your property safe and well looked after.
    We could also drop you at the airport should you need transport there.
    Thank you and we would love to hear from you...
    Regards, Lyndon and Magdalena

  • 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.
    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.

  • I am 40 years old. I have been house sitting for the last 12 months or so and can provide references. When sitting I have always found the owners can go away and leave the home and the pets secure in the knowledge the environment they are staying in is safe and loving. The animals are provided with lots of love and attention to ensure the separation is as stress free as possible. I love all animals, and take the responsibility seriously, including looking after the home.
    I live in the Bull Creek area, just south of Perth City, am a writer and photographer and enjoy a daily discipline of yoga and meditation.

    I have double citizenship ( Spanish & Australian ) as I lived, studied and worked in Oz 5 years ago and I previously I also worked for an Aussie company here in Spain for five years (1997 to 2001).
    I really miss and love Australia, I consider it as my second home, that it is why I want to go back and settle in. It would be great to have time to finish my Diploma in Children Services, as I had to come back to Spain in 2008 because of my family, and I could not finish my studies then.
    I have no preferences in places around Australia, but I would like to be in a city where I can attend Uni classes and maybe work as a child care giver.
    Thank you very much.

    We have family living in Perth and visit them every year. sometimes in August just for a month or so but generally anytime from December to late March.
    We usually rent an apartment attached to a lovely house which is where we began our sitting with animals alone!
    The lady we normally rent from asked in 2009 if we would look after her Cats while she was away. We love animals, so agreed this was not a problem.
    We actually liked the fact we had our independence and trust given to us.
    The next year she asked us again, but this time she was away longer and asked could we maintain the swimming pool as well as look after her daughters dog. Again we agreed and really got into this WA life style trust and enjoyed the responsibility.

  • Dec 2013 / Jan 2014. Our contact details dee@haskins.id.au
    We feel very lucky to have met Lainey and Paul, two wonderful people that looked after our two dogs and cat December 2013/ January 2014. They looked after our home like it was their own too. Our dogs absolutely loved them. They took them to the beach every day, played with them and even took them out for morning coffee. Most surprising was our cat. She is slow to trust people and is generally quite fussy, they quickly won her trust and she too was smitten by them. We received regular photos and updates which was comforting and reassuring when you are on the other side of the world from your pets.
    We are delighted to have met Lainey, Paul, their lovely daughter and grandchildren, and highly recommend them.
  • Both Lainey and Paul provided house-sitting services for my family while on vacations from Years 2007/8, 2008/9 and 2009/10. For varying lengths of time from 4 – 8 weeks. Both Lainey and Paul were the perfect house-sitters.
    They looked after our dogs, walked them twice a day, swam with them, loved and treated them so well even taught them manners and became our family friends. We met Paul’s children and grand children and have remained friends.
    They helped us out in 2010 giving them just 3 weeks’ notice to change their own plans and to help us out when we moved house& things went slightly wrong delaying the move.
    They maintained our pool, kept our home looking nice, clean and tidy and our dogs loved them - perhaps preferring them to us.
    We have now relocated and unable to have a vacation right now but would not have any hesitation in asking Lainey and Paul back to help us out.
    I hope you find this information helpful.
    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need anymore information.
    Paul Jones. 16 Fawler Road Padbury WA 6025
  • Lainey & Paul house sat for us for 3 weeks over the Christmas/New Year period 2012-2013. This included looking after our 3 year old dog Oscar.
    I was a little hesitant at first as we have had some varied problems in the past with people sitting for us. I shouldn’t have been worried at all as Lainey& Paul both bonded with Oscar straight away & I felt confident that our house & dog would be well looked after while we were away.
    I have no hesitation in recommending them to look after your house or pets. Lainey absolutely loves animals& spoilt our dog during our absence. In fact it took Oscar a little while to adjust to them not being around.
    While we were away Lainey kept me up to date on how things were going even though she didn’t need to. It was nice to see pictures of Oscar while we were away having fun at the beach.
    If you need any more information regarding their time at our place please feel free to contact me directly.

  • I am a single female, 35 years old. I am a qualified teacher and self-employed as a tutor. I am also studying all of 2015, so looking for a way to keep my costs down this year.
    I am experienced at house sitting, and can provide local references.
    I am a non-smoker, non-drug taker and can provide a police clearance, a DET criminal screening and also a WWC clearance.
    I am happy to look after cats, dogs and other pets.
    I would prefer somewhere within 20kms of Willetton / Canning Vale as this is my area of business ~ however this might be negotiable, so please ask.
    Thanks Katherine

  • Hello All !
    My name is Camille Connaughton and I am a 25 year-old Primary school teacher. I have very recently moved from a little town in Derby, after having taught at Kimberley School of the Air for a year and a half. I am from Perth originally, and met my partner, Clinton, up in Derby. We are currently very interested in doing some house sitting whilst searching for a rental property; career etc. Clinton has just been employed as a boilermaker and whilst I am mostly focusing on training for a 500 kilometre bike ride for charity in late Feb, I am also searching for work. For the time being I am residing at my parents' home in Shenton Park, and Clinton is living with his sister in Midvale for his work.
    We are both friendly, reliable and tidy people. We would look after your home as if it is our own- and we both have a strong love for animals so would have no problems if you were to own pets.
    I am more than happy to provide referees, police clearance, identification etc. at your request if you would be interested in asking us to look after your home.
    Thank you for reading and we hope to hear from you soon! :)

Preferred area: Perth plus 80 km south of Perth CBD
Occupation: Semi-retired IT-Professional and Plant Operator
Ages
55 & 62
  • Very experienced House-Sitters
    We are a married, honest and caring couple in our fifties/sixties, house-sitting around Perth as a way of discovering this beautiful region. We don't have any children or own pets with us. Our plan is to eventually settle here. Both non-smokers / non-drinkers, we enjoy living a clean and quiet, but active lifestyle.
    Magdalena is a semi-retired IT-professional from Germany. She is a meticulous house- keeper, able to stay home mostly as company for pets, and as extra security for the house, as she works from home. She loves walking in general, but far more with a lovely dog-companion. We would be very happy to take your dog to the beach, if this is OK with you or other interesting places, so he/she can experience different environments. You can be assured that your pets get enough exercise.
    Lyndon is a Kiwi, currently working as a plant operator in Kwinana, south of Perth. He has spent many years living on farms, as a contract logger in pine forests in N.Z., Tasmania and N.S.W. He is also a capable handyman and gardener. During any spare time, he's working on his first novel - ten year plan!
    Being proud home-owners ourselves, back in Christchurch N.Z., we do really appreciate the need to respect and take good care of other people's homes, gardens and their belongings.
    So far we have done about ten house-sits in and around Perth, varying in length from a few days to six months. We truly love animals. So far we have cared for cats and dogs, budgies, galahs and gold-fish. While house-sitting, we have gained pool-maintenance experience.
    We are happy to provide police-clearances, as well as excellent references from previous satisfied house-owners.
    Our intention is that you can leave with confidence and enjoy your holidays, knowing that your pets are very much loved and cared for and your property safe and well looked after.
    We could also drop you at the airport should you need transport there.
    Thank you and we would love to hear from you...
    Regards, Lyndon and Magdalena

  • I am an international business development consultant that can work from anywhere. I'm originally from California, but come from Portland, OR in the Pacific Northwest. I am moving to Australia to be closer (in the world) to my retired parents in Taiwan and to focus on my Bucket List, which includes immersing myself into different parts of Australia and NZ by spending at least 1 month in each metro immersed in the locale culture.
    Although I have the propensity to easily connect with new people and respect their values from my years in international business, my years running a real estate investment firm with hands-on property management and the fact that I am a business owner will be the reason why you hire me. I carry insurance through my business that covers me from a liability standpoint wherever I travel internationally.
    I am responsible, detail-oriented, organized, and communicative. I can personally take care of mundane tasks from house cleaning, landscape maintenance, and processing mail, to complex project management, such as overseeing a remodel and coordinating permits with the local government.
    I love dogs (am allergic to cats and rabbits).

    I have done house and pet sitting before. I helped out a old couple with a dog as the dog had problems by not eating if put in a kennel so I house sat for them for periods of 2-5 weeks when they took holidays or a break. It just means they didn't go through the hassle of paying for a kennel and when they came back the dog was eating normally. Reference available.

When sitting I have always found the owners can go away and leave the home and the pets secure in the knowledge the environment they are staying in is safe and loving.
