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 sitting 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.

  • 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.

  • Experienced WA sitters
    Have just completed another great house sit in Mandurah and now planning our next trip - available again for Dec/January 2014/15. 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.
    I hope we can help you this year or next year. We have our own transport when we are in WA. We do like an adventure and prefer Coastal areas. I love Mindarie, Ocean Reef, Fremantle, Mandurah, Rockingham or Busselton.
    Take care and see you soon Lainey and Paul.

    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.

  • 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 in the eastern part of Australia.
    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, 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

    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 have a small farm and so are familiar with caring for animals and pets.
    Neil is a furniture maker and has many practical skills useful in maintaining a home. Karral is a passionate gardener and very capable of looking after your garden and plants.
    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.

Semi-retired IT-Professional and Plant Operator
Ages

  • 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 and 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 is 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.
    Thank you and we are looking forward to hearing from you.
    Regards, Lyndon and Magdalena
    PS. Please don't feel like our availability dates are set in concrete. That's why we refer to them as approx. dates. We do have a bit of flexibility since there is two of us, and we do also have friends to stay with if needed. So, please do not hesitate to contact us either by email or mobile, then we would be able to give you a definite yes or no. Thanks.

  • 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.

  • We are a professional semi-retired couple from Ireland. I am an Australian citizen and have spent years in Australia.
    We are experienced animal lovers, gardeners and property owners, and international travellers.
    House sitting is not common here in Ireland but we have taken care of family and friends homes while they were on holiday as well as pets.
    In us you get the total package, there is nothing in maintenance that Michael cannot handle, add to that my expertise in keeping the garden and house clean and tidy at all times as well as our love of animals and you have everything you need for peace of mind while you are away.
    We are home owners here in rural Ireland and have 3 grown up professional children all now left home. We are now taking time to ourselves and intend travelling around Australia for the next few years.
    We are very open on dates, long term sitting is of particular interest.

    At home we will be leaving our own beloved pets with family, a beautiful 8 year old Pomeranian dog and a 10 year old cat both of which are part of the family. W
    e also have a lovely aquarium with a dozen fish.
    We spend lots of time in our 1/2 acre plot where we grow veggies and all our own
    flowers and plants.
    We are extremely house proud and our home inside and out is kept really neat and tidy and we would apply the same standard to any property we look after. I am a DIY specialist and have no problems dealing with any issues that may arise in the house
    inside or out.
    We have rented many properties over the years while travelling with our children and have always kept them to the required standard. For some reason animals seem to take to us very easily and we are friends in a short time.

    We are both non smokers and only take the occasional drink.

    If you would like to know more about us and how we can assist with taking care of your home, pets and garden while you are away please give us a call or email us at any time. (Happy to telephone or Skype you for a more in-depth chat)

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.

  • Experienced WA sitters
    Have just completed another great house sit in Mandurah and now planning our next trip - available again for Dec/January 2014/15. 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.
    I hope we can help you this year or next year. We have our own transport when we are in WA. We do like an adventure and prefer Coastal areas. I love Mindarie, Ocean Reef, Fremantle, Mandurah, Rockingham or Busselton.
    Take care and see you soon Lainey and Paul. 

    Our family - Bow, J, Oz.


    Yes, we do love pets !

  • 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.

  • 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 in the eastern part of Australia.
    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, 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

    I Arlene (English 57 yrs) & my partner Jean-Louis (Swiss 56 yrs) are a clean, fit, happy, quiet, honest, responsible, and reliable, couple, owners of our own Guesthouse in the Loire Valley centre France.
    We have many years of experience in running, caring & maintaining our guesthouse and therefore we feel that we are very capable and trustworthy of successful house sittings, even more so if there are pets to be looked after, as we have a lot of love & respect for animals in general. Swimming pool maintenance is also well within our capabilities as we have a large heated pool at our guesthouse and also had a pool in our previous house.
    We would like to be in the Perth area (Carlisle in particular) for a period of 2-3 months as we have family members to visit, which cannot accommodate us comfortably for such a long stay.
    An exchange with accommodation in our guesthouse is also a possibility should that suit a particular house owner.

  • I am 60 years of age, single (widowed in 2004) and retired on a reasonable income. I have five grandchildren and three adult children. I am visiting Australia for the first time and would like to stay and get to know the place while at the same time assist my brother and his family downsize their family home as his family grows up and away from home.
    I have a Jack Russel /sheepdog cross at home and one cat. Both of which are being cared for by my youngest daughter and her family while they house sit for me at home in Ireland for the year I am away. I also have a large garden and greenhouse tunnel to grow vegetables and some fruit.
    I am by profession an Adult Education facilitator. I have facilitated parents in the second level education of their children for the Irish educational system and when I retired I studied and completed a Catholic theology degree over five years and have worked since as an Adult Education Catechist in the local Sacred Heart Missionaries retreat house in West Cork for the Catholic Church without salary. I am now taking a break from it all and seeing a bit of this part of the world.
    This work has required that I get full police vetting which I can provide an electronic or photocopy of if required. But as to references for my house sitting experience or good behaviour I have none as yet, as this is the first time I have given it a go. My Australian Citizen brother can give you assurances as to my character and personality. I am most willing to attend interview to enable any house owner to assess my eligibility.

Ages

  • 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 and 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 is 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.
    Thank you and we are looking forward to hearing from you.
    Regards, Lyndon and Magdalena
    PS. Please don't feel like our availability dates are set in concrete. That's why we refer to them as approx. dates. We do have a bit of flexibility since there is two of us, and we do also have friends to stay with if needed.

  • Happy, honest, reliable and trustworthy experienced house/pet sitter looking for some fur-babies to spoil and look after as if they were my own while you're on holidays.
    My name is Hayley and I am a single woman, working full time for UWA. I have decided to pack up my house and store my belongings and make a lifestyle change. I am planning on setting off at the end of 2014 on a travel quest of a lifetime and believe house sitting will not only help me save for the trip, but open up new experiences, see different areas of Perth and dote on beloved pets. I have a reliable car, police clearance, and references and a belief that expectations should be met and exceed.
    My job finishes at 4 and have the weekends free, so I have lots of evening time to devote to your fur-children and much loved home. I have owned my own home so I understand the importance of keeping on top of domestic duties as well as promptly attending to maintenance aspect of a house. I am a clean and tidy person who takes pride in the appearance of a home. I am a non-smoker who likes the quieter side of life.
    I have owned dogs in the past, but unfortunately none to call my own currently. My dedication to pets is also shown by my fostering of puppies that are rescued from unfortunate situations and have volunteered heavily within the organization WA Assistance Dogs for a few years.
    I would love to fill up my diary, so even if you are planning on taking some time away from home later in the year, I would be more than happy to come and meet with you sooner, so we can discuss if we are right for each-other, lock in dates and skip the stress of finding someone just before you leave. I'm also happy to come and spend some time with you and your fur-babies if you feel they would benefit from some time with you and me together and feel more comfortable when your gone.
    My email address and mobile are below and look forward to hearing from you if you think I might be the one that's right for you.

    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.

  • Hello there, Thanks for taking the time to review this mini profile!
    Becks and I are professional couple in our 40s. We are Pommie migrants ex Auckland (!) and look forward to exploring this lovely city. We thoroughly enjoy pets and have experience looking after others' pet families and their homes when they are absent. We are also keen to house sit as it will allow us to get to know different suburbs as we settle into Perth. Lastly, we hope for assignments of 3 weeks or longer duration if at all possible.
    As for what we bring to the table, we have a strong sense of responsibility and giving back. We both do pro bono work in the community and enjoy looking after animals. We are strong problem solvers so if issues arise with peoples' pets or homes while they are away we solve them economically and responsibly.

  • We are a professional semi-retired couple from Ireland. I am an Australian citizen and have spent years in Australia.
    We are experienced animal lovers, gardeners and property owners, and international travellers.
    House sitting is not common here in Ireland but we have taken care of family and friends homes while they were on holiday as well as pets.
    In us you get the total package, there is nothing in maintenance that Michael cannot handle, add to that my expertise in keeping the garden and house clean and tidy at all times as well as our love of animals and you have everything you need for peace of mind while you are away.
    We are home owners here in rural Ireland and have 3 grown up professional children all now left home. We are now taking time to ourselves and intend travelling around Australia for the next few years.
    We are very open on dates, long term sitting is of particular interest.

    At home we will be leaving our own beloved pets with family, a beautiful 8 year old Pomeranian dog and a 10 year old cat both of which are part of the family. W
    e also have a lovely aquarium with a dozen fish.
    We spend lots of time in our 1/2 acre plot where we grow veggies and all our own
    flowers and plants.
    We are extremely house proud and our home inside and out is kept really neat and tidy and we would apply the same standard to any property we look after. I am a DIY specialist and have no problems dealing with any issues that may arise in the house
    inside or out.
    We have rented many properties over the years while travelling with our children and have always kept them to the required standard. For some reason animals seem to take to us very easily and we are friends in a short time.

    We are both non smokers and only take the occasional drink.

    If you would like to know more about us and how we can assist with taking care of your home, pets and garden while you are away please give us a call or email us at any time. (Happy to telephone or Skype you for a more in-depth chat)
