Aussie House Sitters

The largest pet & house sitting site in Australia

About Us

We were doing this long before the "Sharing Economy" became a thing. For more than a decade, we have been helping our members save millions of dollars in rent and boarding fees. We are the largest and most trusted house sitting site in Australia, with far more new houses every month than any other AU site.

Pet and House Sitting in Australia - About Aussie House Sitters

Aussie family business

We are a family business, based in the beautiful Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. We started, more than a decade ago, with a very simple philosophy and a very simple site.

Our success is based on offering great value, security, transparency, simplicity and friendly support. We have grown consistently over the years, mostly through word of mouth - recommendations from very happy members.

Site statistics

We attract more homeowners, and more house and pet sitters than any other Australian site.

Every month, we get hundreds of new house sitting job ads, but we also get a large number of house owners deciding to contact sitters directly, without placing an Ad. Have a look at "House Sitters contacted directly by homeowners" and you'll understand why it's a good idea for sitters to put up a listing on this site. The stats listed here are all unique "first contact" conversations initiated through our messaging system.

The numbers below are unedited, they are generated automatically and published here - that's how confident we are in the performance of the site.

About you

Our role in all of this is really to facilitate house and pet sitting for our large and dynamic community of members.

We work hard to constantly improve the site performance, and to provide friendly and practical support, but the real value here is in the energy and generosity of the wonderful people that make up the Aussie House Sitters community.

We love house sitting as a concept - it's always been really smart, safe and generous, like most Aussies.

And Aussies love house sitting; it provides high quality pet care, garden care and house security for home owners while they are away - for free. It provides rent free accommodation for sitters who want to save up some money, or travel around this beautiful country.

If you are interested in being a part of this growing phenomenon, please join in. We look forward to serving you.
