We used your services for the first time by placing an ad on your site for house sitters yesterday. We had previously booked house sitters through a mutual friend but they then cancelled. We did not think we would be able to take our planned holiday but then you came to the rescue. In less than 24 hours we found house sitters and are delighted with your service. We will most definitely be using you again when the need arises. We heartily recommend your service to anybody needing a house sitter. Once again, many thanks. Faye

We would like you to know that we are delighted with the Aussie House Sitters website. We signed up as house sitters on your site in October of this year. Within an hour of joining we applied for a house sit and were short listed, and we have been appointed. The first day we appeared on the site we received a phone call enquiry, and in the next couple of days received a couple more enquiries by phone. We have had more approaches from house owners through your site in the last three months than we have had from the other sites over a period of two years. We think you are doing a great job!

House Sitting in Sydney


Sydney, the emerald city. A city of beaches, fashion, cafes, beaches, bars, nightlife, entertainment, oh and beaches. It is a truly beautiful city, buzzing with frenetic energy and nestled around a gorgeous harbour.

Features like the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge serve as the perfect canvas for world famous New Year's Eve fireworks displays. Sydney is also host to the fabulous Gay Mardi Gras and a very hectic festival line-up.

Explore the designer heaven that is Surry Hills, the bars and cafes of Darlinghurst, "Little Italy" in Leichhardt, China Town, the terribly fashionable Double Bay and, of course, the nooks and crannies around "Old Sydney".

Sydney is one of the world's most liveable cities (according to most international reviews) and it is certainly one of the most visitable. It is a mecca for house-sitters, so don't hang around, get into it.

HOUSE SITTING AROUND SYDNEY

There are many places in and around Sydney where you can find people who are looking for house sitting or pet sitting jobs. Here is a look at some areas for house sitting in Sydney.

The eastern suburb of Bondi is a great place to check out. This suburb is popular for its large shopping district and its famous beaches including Bondi Beach. The beaches are great places for pet sitters who are taking care of dogs because of how wide open they are for dog walks.




The Inner West is another great place to check out. This area, which is right outside the downtown area, is a place that features many terrace houses that are built close to each other with many restaurants in the area. The towns of Newtown and Glebe are two of the most popular places in the Inner West for house sitters.




Another great place is the North Shore neighbourhood. The area, which includes the suburbs of Hornsby and Neutral Bay, features many shores and docks that are perfect for dog walking and is right near the Harbour Bridge. Many popular shopping areas, including the Westfield Chatswood shopping centre in Chatswood, are near many homes in this area.

 
*FREE: House sitting is usually free, for both sitter and house owner, although this is completely up to the individuals. There are usually some costs that need to be covered by either the sitter or the house owner e.g. electricity, phone usage, vet fees etc. How these costs are handled needs to be agreed before the sit begins. House sitters pay a single annual membership fee, while house owners pay nothing to advertise their house or to contact sitters.
