How It Works

Your site has been my site of choice over the last 3 years. I have met some wonderful, caring, cat loving people who I could trust to care for my home and cats while I was away. The replies to my ad have been very friendly, polite and professional. Thank you for your site, which works so well for both housesitters and home owners. Janet

People don't get enough thanks, so here is a "Thank you" from Trish and Pauline. We have used your site for four years. Our adventures in travel have been incredible due to your site. We have returned to house sit on several occasions. We have made life-long friends - and- we have escaped LONG COLD AND SNOWY CANADIAN WINTERS. Thank you for making this possible. The Canucks, Pauline and Trish

House Sitting in Sydney


Sydney, the emerald city. A city of beaches, fashion, cafes, beaches, bars, nightlife, entertainment, oh and beaches. It is a truly beautiful city, buzzing with frenetic energy and nestled around a gorgeous harbour.

Features like the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge serve as the perfect canvas for world famous New Year's Eve fireworks displays. Sydney is also host to the fabulous Gay Mardi Gras and a very hectic festival line-up.

Explore the designer heaven that is Surry Hills, the bars and cafes of Darlinghurst, "Little Italy" in Leichhardt, China Town, the terribly fashionable Double Bay and, of course, the nooks and crannies around "Old Sydney".

Sydney is one of the world's most liveable cities (according to most international reviews) and it is certainly one of the most visitable. It is a mecca for house-sitters, so don't hang around, get into it.

HOUSE SITTING AROUND SYDNEY

There are many places in and around Sydney where you can find people who are looking for house sitting or pet sitting jobs. Here is a look at some areas for house sitting in Sydney.

The eastern suburb of Bondi is a great place to check out. This suburb is popular for its large shopping district and its famous beaches including Bondi Beach. The beaches are great places for pet sitters who are taking care of dogs because of how wide open they are for dog walks.




The Inner West is another great place to check out. This area, which is right outside the downtown area, is a place that features many terrace houses that are built close to each other with many restaurants in the area. The towns of Newtown and Glebe are two of the most popular places in the Inner West for house sitters.




Another great place is the North Shore neighbourhood. The area, which includes the suburbs of Hornsby and Neutral Bay, features many shores and docks that are perfect for dog walking and is right near the Harbour Bridge. Many popular shopping areas, including the Westfield Chatswood shopping centre in Chatswood, are near many homes in this area.

 
*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.
