46, Designer & Student

I'm Alex a local Brisbane woman who is a non-smoking, childfree professional designer, mature age student and a full time house/pet sitter since mid 2016.

I'm thrilled the travel restrictions are being lifted. I'm now available for sits from 1st August throughout the rest of 2020 including Christmas. I can't wait to get back to meeting new homeowners and caring for their pets and places.

If you are forward planning the security of your home and/or loving care of your fur friend in 2020, I would be thrilled to chat about your needs and dates. Once booked you can feel confident that I am 100% committed and you can organise a worry free break away.

I began house sitting by choice to support my four-year study program (now 100% online) and found I loved it from day one. Meeting interesting new people, experiencing a variety of homes, plus the chance of having a pet/s to care for is just the perfect combination. Some pretty happy home owners think so too!

I am very much an animal person, having grown up with horses in UK and NZ along with assorted dogs, guinea pigs, birds, fish, a cat and chickens. They are all people to me!

I'm 100% comfortable at following the established routines, rules and regulations for your pets. Whether that is inside sleeping on the bed, strictly outside or anything in between. Continuity for your pet is reassuring for them and me! Equally practical and capable when it comes to home care too, happy to take on tasks such as mowing, gardening, watering or cleaning the pool filter.

I feel it is a privilege to be welcomed into another's home which means I'm careful, clean, tidy and considerate of your home, possessions and neighbours.

I would prefer longer-term house sitting positions of a month or more, within approximately 10km of Brisbane. I have my own transport and will be at home for extended periods during day as well as evenings/nights, which means added security for the house and lots of company for your pet/s.

I like to keep fit by walking and running so if your fur friend likes a daily walk (or two) or if you have a high energy dog then my daily routine is already ideally suited for them.

I have recent references from happy, satisfied homeowners plus a current police check, for your added peace of mind. If you have any questions or would like to chat about your needs please don't hesitate to make contact for a chat.

Thanks for reading ☺

There are not enough words to describe how fantastic Alex is! She is a warm, considerate and funny woman who clearly loves what she does. From our first meeting I had no hesitation in having her stay in my home and look after my fur child Ollie. She embraced his quirky kitty ways and it wasn't long before they were the best of friends. A huge relief for a first time kitty mom being on the other side of the world. Her updates were frequent and funny, great sense of humour! Arriving home to an ... MORE

We couldn't have been happier with Alex. The house was clean and tidy when we returned home and there were even welcoming vase of tulips on the table. Alex looked after Charlie beautifully. He was obviously very sad to see her go and wandered around the house for a couple of days looking for her. We recommend Alex very highly.
ALICE (Hendra QLD, Jun 2019 - One Week)
Alex was fabulous. We came home to a clean, neat and tidy home. Lily was spoilt and thoroughly enjoyed her time with Alex. Overall the experience was exceptional
KYM (Manly West QLD, Mar 2019)
Alex was a thoughtful and reliable house and pet sitter who came to spend a week looking after our 14 year old somewhat needy dog. She went over and above to make sure Jade was comfortable and kept in regular contact with us so we could enjoy our break away. Our house was in great condition when we arrived home with fresh flowers on our dining table! Thank you Alex and we would most definitely recommend and ask Alex to sit for us again.
GILLIAN (Balmoral QLD, Mar 2019)
Alex is the perfect housesitter. Communicative, trustworthy and responsible. She looked after both my apartment and my cat as if they were her own. It was a joy to come home to a beautifully clean and tidy apartment and a settled and happy pet. I can not recommend Alex highly enough.

Thank you for your kind words and for making me feel so welcome in your lovely home.
Alex was fabulous. Millie was in such great care, I'm not sure we were missed. The house was so neat & tidy on our return & the daily update sent had us in stitches. We would highly recommend Alex & hope she will be available to stay with us again on our next holiday. Millie says hi

Loved having Alex house sit and spoiling Reggie. Returned to a happy boy and a very clean house! I would highly recommend Alex to others.
JO (Upper Coomera QLD, Jan 2019 - 6 days)
Alex was an incredible sitter! We cannot wait to invite her back. She was attentive to all communication and sent regular updates and photos of our fur baby. The house was immaculate with bedding and towels washed upon our arrival home. We did not fret over anything knowing Alex was there to sit. She left a housekeeping note, garden watered through some really hot days and looked great. Thank you once again!
MARCELLE (Kedron QLD, Nov 2018 - 5 days)
Alex has just finished on a housesit for me and i could not be happier with my first time experience using Aussie House Sitters. On the very first meeting i had with Alex, my beloved fur child liked her straight away so i felt very comfortable having her in my house and looking after my little Rueben. While i was away, she even sent me text updates and photos. Upon arriving home, my house was spotless. and my fur child was happy. Alex will definately be my first choice the next time i ... MORE

We had a fantastic housesit experience with Alex. Alex kept in great communication, she kept the place cleaner than we do and our cat Leeroy loved her! Alex was extremely organised and considerate when our trip was cut short unexpectedly. We would not hesitate to have Alex look after our home in the future.

HELEN (Indooroopilly QLD, Sep 2018 - 1 week)
No rating This was the first time we had registered and used Aussie House sitters and Alex is certainly a great advertisement for the organisation. We asked Alex to pop in after she registered interest in sitting for us, so we could have a chat, and we were both very happy to let Alex come and look after our cat and our home and garden. We were away over 6 weeks and came home to a happy cat, a spotless house and a well kept garden. Alex is a very caring person, and demonstrated her kindness by leaving ... MORE
ALISON (Alderley QLD, Aug 2017 - 1 month 2 weeks)
No rating Absolute pleasure having Alex housesit for us. She cared for our pet and our home as if it was her own. Would utterly recommend her for any future sits. Thanks Alex! 5 stars ;)
KATRINA (Everton Hills QLD, Nov 2016)
No rating Alex was a wonderful house sitter. She looked after our dog Huey so well and kept us up to date as often as we needed which put our minds at ease while we were away. The house was kept in perfect condition and she even left us a lovely present and card for when we returned. I'd recommend Alex in a heartbeat.

House Security

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
