How It Works

Thanks again for this great service. It's wonderful knowing you can go away, secure in the knowledge that all is well at home. I'm looking at a house swap in the future as well. Your site is easy to navigate and I had replies almost as soon as my ad was posted. There are some lovely people using Aussie House Sitters. Robyn

NOTES:

HOUSE ADS: Some owners choose not to place an Ad, preferring to contact Sitters directly. This means that there are always more Houses available than the ones listed on the site, increasing the chance that Sitters will get a great house sit.

HOUSE SITTER CONTACTS: The numbers in the chart above refer to the first contact enquiry made when a registered House Owner first clicks on the "CONTACT" button on a Sitter's profile.
 

WE HAVE THE NUMBERS

Month by month, we generally have more houses advertised and more sitters available than any other service in Australia. We have earned this kind of support over many years by offering great value, an effective service and friendly support. And lots of activity means that you are more likely to find a house or a sitter here than anywhere else.

So, what are you waiting for? Your adventure awaits...

*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.
