My experience with Aussie House Sitters and the homes that I sat for was superlative!! Lovely homes, lovely people and pets that I truly bonded with. Housesitting allowed me to have a prolonged time living in the vicinity of my daughter & her family without being on her doorstep 24/7. I have recommended your site to countless folks as a great way to visit and travel throughout Australia. Wendy

For House Owners

For real peace of mind there is simply no better alternative than to have someone looking after your home, pets and garden while you're away.

House sitting is a very simple transaction between you and the sitter and delivers enormous value for both. Pet care, garden maintenance, house security and someone to call if there's an emergency - all of these benefits add up to one thing; ENORMOUS CONFIDENCE .


If you really want to relax while you're away from your home, get a house sitter. You will be amazed how good it feels to have a caring responsible person looking after things at home - for FREE*

Free pet care

You know your pet better than you know some of your friends.

You know that they love regular routines, constant company and familiar territory. You know what food they like... etc. You also know that leaving them behind is a traumatic and destabilizing experience for them.

Sending your pets to a boarding facility is even more unsettling - no matter how good the staff are, it is just not "home". Oh, and it's expensive.

A house sitter provides constant human companionship and tailored care in the animal's own home. It doesn't actually get much better than this - and it's FREE*.




Free Garden Care and House Security

Imagine having a trustworthy, caring person looking after your home, pets and garden while you're away. Then imagine that you get all of this for FREE*.

GARDEN MAINTENANCE: You've invested years of your life into that verdant little piece of paradise - so you really want it to be tended to while you're away. Yes you do. Get a house sitter in.

HOUSE SECURITY: Having people in the house is the ultimate protection from burglary and vandalism. A house sitter can also contact you in case of any emergency, like storm damage, a burst pipe or a sick pet. Remember that many home insurance policies don't actually cover your house if you are away for too long.




Real Peace of mind

Imagine leaving the house and knowing that everything was going to be cared for attentively until you return.

Imagine knowing that you've provided your pets with the ultimate gift - human companionship and care in their own home.

Imagine knowing that your house will be secure, your garden maintained and that there will be someone there in case there's an emergency, or you just want to give your dog a "phone kiss".

This already happens, every day, for house owners across the USA. If you want to enjoy your time away, stress free - get a house sitter.


*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.
