I like animals - and they like me!

I am an experienced pet and house sitter, and thoroughly enjoy the lifestyle. I can guarantee your pets, house, and plants will be very well looked after while you're away and that I will treat your home with respect and care. I am security conscious and economical in my use of heating, aircon, water etc.
I like animals - and they like me! I will take excellent care of any and all pets [although I'll admit to an especially soft spot for cats!] and will give them affectionate company and lots of TLC while you're away. I'm happy to text or email updates too if you like.
I'm fit and active, calm, honest and reliable, and free to travel for short or long house sits. Any location considered, but I need to be within reach of public transport. I do drive and have a clean licence but don't have a car at present.
I'm a neat and tidy, quiet living non-smoker with a good sense of humour.

Excellent references available on request.

This was our first time using a pet/house sitter, so we were a little unsure how it would go. From start to finish Di was absolutely fantastic! Our cat (who can be a character), loved her and we returned to find the house spotless. She has a great communication style and kept us informed with messages and photos throughout the stay. We cannot recommend Di more highly and will definitely be calling her to look after our fur baby again in the future.

Thank you Di so much for looking after Maxy and Molly. Our sitter unfortunately had to cancelled 1 week before our trip and Di luckily stepped in. She came over during the week to meet the cats and put us at ease which was a great help. The place was nice and tidy when we arrived home and the cats were very well looked after... they didnt miss us at all!
LAURA (Warriewood NSW, Jul 2020 - 2 days)
Thank you, Laura. This was a short, last minute sit, but an enjoyable one. Molly and Maxy, the ragdoll cats, were very affectionate and easy to care for. Very handy to Warriewood Square shopping centre, with a bus stop literally across the road. A lovely bonus was the close proximity to the nature ... MORE
Di responded very promptly to what was a late request for house& dog sitting. We arranged a time to meet and from the very beginning we liked her manner, professionalism and special attention paid to our dog, Lote. We were kept informed the whole time we were away with photos texts and news of Lote. Our home was immaculate on our return, and our dog very relaxed and happy. I would highly recommend Di for this service. Karen in Sydney
KAREN (Manly NSW, Jul 2020 - 6 days)
Thanks, Karen. It was a pleasure.
I would highly recommend Di to anyone looking for a reliable, responsible and caring house and pet sitter. Our 2 cats were extremely happy and comfortable with Di, particularly our little girl Gypsy who is normally quite shy around people she doesn't know! Di sent photos of our cats and communicated with us regularly while we were away. We returned to a lovely clean home and healthy, happy fur babies. We also consider we have made a new friend and will definitely welcome Di into our home in the ... MORE
CHERYL (Gerringong NSW, Mar 2020 - 1 week 5 days)
Di kept in touch with me just letting know that our cats were doing fine and had taken to Di really well which was a relief. The house was nice and clean when we arrived home. I would be more than happy to have Di come sit again or recommend her for house sitting for you.
GWEN (Mona Vale NSW, Feb 2020 - 4 Days)
Words cannot describe how fantastic Di was! We had discussed prior to our departure a difficult situation which might arise - and it did. Di handled it with compassion, kept us fully informed and was there for us in every possible way. We will be forever grateful, and I feel very confident in recommending Di as a perfect house and pet sitter.
BOBBIE (Pymble NSW, Oct 2019 - 2 weeks 2 days)
Di was an extremely professional house sitter: very easy to communicate with, looked after Jasper wonderfully and sent photos through during the stay. House was left immaculate on departure. Highly recommended.
TOBY (Crows Nest NSW, Sep 2019 - 2 weeks)
Di recently looked after our property at short notice for 5 days getting us out of a difficult situation when our regular house sitter cancelled at the last minute. The house looked immaculate on return, our cat Elsee was happy and had clearly made a new friend. We couldn't recommend Di highly enough to mind your house. More than happy to be contacted for a verbal reference if one is required.
PAMELA (Dulwich Hill NSW, Sep 2019 - 4 days)
Looked after our cat and house beautifully. Di was easy to communicate with and Ziggy our cat was happy and well when we got home. We would use Di again.
CAROL (Bribie Island QLD, Jul 2019 - 4 weeks)
It was such a pleasure to meet Di and have her take care of our pets and house during the recent school holidays. Our house was spotless when we returned and Harvey and Chilli were very happy and had been well loved. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Di and I hope she returns to housesit for us in the future.
BETHANY (Ascot QLD, Jun 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
This was our first experience using this site and how lucky we were to have found Di. She was incredible from start to finish. We met with Di before our trip - something that she suggested and for which I am very grateful. Immediately it was easy to see that she is a fabulous lady. Our home was impeccably clean on our return and, more importantly, our 1 year old Jack Russell named Boo was not just looked after in our absence, but actually loved. He even cried when Di left! Thank you Di for ... MORE
MARGARET (Bowral NSW, Apr 2019 - 1 week)
This was our first experience with house sitting. From our first meeting with Di we were extremely impressed with her experience and professionalism and our pets took to her quickly. Whilst away Di sent us regular updates and photos of our three cats and on our return, our home was left in pristine condition. We highly recommend Di and would invite her to stay again.
TERRY (North Narrabeen NSW, Nov 2018 - 1 week 2 days)
Would not hesitate to recomend or have Di back to watch our home and cat. Di is thoughtful and lovely and we look forward to having her back.
JASON (Elizabeth Bay NSW, Oct 2018 - 2 days)
Due to the last minute cancellation of my booked house sitter - Di was a complete lifesaver ! With only 2 days notice she was happy to house sit for my 2 beautiful himalayans. Di and I immediately connected and it was an absolute pleasure to meet her. She warmed to my cats the moment she walked in the door and their affection towards her was all it took for me to be convinced that I had a complete gem in Di. She kept me updated with pics and comments so there was never any doubt in my ... MORE
DONNA (WARRAWEE NSW, Oct 2018 - 3 days)
Di recently rescued me when I had to go interstate for work with very little notice. My cat Nandi absolutely loved her from the minute they both met and that alone gave me reassurance that I was leaving my fur baby in good hands. Di kept me up to date with regular pics and text messages which also added to my piece of mind and made being so far away that much easier. I came home after an exhausting few days of work to find that she had not only changed the bed linen, cleaned and ... MORE
BELINDA (Hornsby NSW, Oct 2018 - 3 nights)
No rating Di was a great house sitter for us. We came home to an immaculate house and a very contented dog. It was very reassuring that every thing was taken care of while we were overseas.
SARAH (Seaforth NSW, Jun 2018 - 2 weeks 2 days)
No rating Di did an amazing job of taking care of our home, 2 cats and fish, while we had a week away. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Not only did she take excellent care of our home (and moggies and fish), she was able to give one of the cats her daily tablet medication without any trouble, and gave both of our cats lots of attention and cuddles. They absolutely adored her (as we could see from the photos she sent us) and they were both very happy and content when we returned home. Di ... MORE
CAROLINE (Lane Cove West NSW, Jun 2018 - 1 week)
No rating I can highly recommend Di due to the great job she did looking after our house but more due to the rapport she created with our spoilt dog Rex. He was sad to see Di leave. Di is welcome to continue sitting for us whenever she is available.
JIM (Wynnum West QLD, May 2018 - 1 week 5 days)
No rating We can't thank Di enough for taking such great care of our much loved, but slightly eccentric pets! She didn't seem to mind sharing a large portion of her bed with our 2 cuddly cats who obviously adored her. (Even though they had their own beds) Our Cocker Spaniel was spoilt rotten with new games, treats and toys. He obviously loved all of the attention she gave him. She dropped us off and picked us up from the airport and we came home to a spotlessly clean house and 3 happy and ... MORE
CAZ (Armidale NSW, Apr 2018 - 2 weeks)
No rating Di was wonderful! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her for a sit! Bubbles is a rescue cat he hides from everyone! They sorted that out! He really warmed to her! My place was lovely and clean to come home to as well!
DENISE (Coolangatta QLD, May 2017 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating First time that I have used Di .and have rebooked her for Sept 2017 My little Yorkie loved her and got very spoilt whilst I was away. House was left lovely. Would recommend her to look after your babies
LYN (Warners Bay NSW, May 2017 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating As the owners of a very precious cat we always worry when going away that we will find someone to look after him in the style to which he has become accustomed (cat lovers will understand this). So we were very pleased to find Di on the Aussie House Sitters site. Di was fabulous to deal with before the sit, and accommodated our moving timetable. During the sit Di communicated with us by text, so we had peace of mind that our cat was being cared for and that all was going well. Returning to the ... MORE
JAN (West End QLD, Mar 2017 - 2 weeks 3 days)
No rating Hello everyone, A few words of praise for Di Isler who was a very caring , clean and competent housesitter. My dog is old and has a few special needs and these were all addressed in the sit . I would recommend Di and her skills . Lesley 0410083502
LESLEY (Coffs Harbour NSW, Sep 2016 - 3 weeks)
No rating Di Isler has house sat for us on 3 occasions including the one above. The most recent sit was from 28 Jan to 10th Feb '18. All 3 times we have come home to happy pets and an organised house. When house sitting here, there's always the chance of issues with guests and coordinating with our cleaner. We have a small B&B (1 cottage) as well. All problems were solved with the best problem solver there is..... Di!! She is very friendly, professional, relaxed and laid back. Very easy to get along ... MORE
MARGARET (Belgrave VIC, May 2016 - 4 weeks)
No rating Di Isler has looked after my siamese cat Dumpling and small house in Enmore on two occasions this year (2016). I have no hesitation in recommending her as the perfect house sitter. My chief concern when I go away is that the cat is looked after and I can report that Dumpling was a very happy and contented cat when I came home. It was obvious that she had been given lots of love, food, attention and plenty of play time. Di fell in with Dumpling's routines and idiosyncrasies, didn't object ... MORE
