I have been on the site for a couple of years. I regularly housesit for a few people. It provides me with time away in different parts of Brisbane. For example, I recently house sat in the Samford Valley area over Christmas. My adult children from Melbourne came and stayed. It was a holiday time for me and lovely to do that on acreage, with a pool. The owners have three horses and two dogs as well as a bird and four chooks. I find the time away enhances my relationship. I would like the opportunity to save over a couple of years to buy a property. House-sitting has enabled me to determine where I would most prefer to buy and how I want to live when I do buy. And I think I have made some good friends along the way both two and four-legged ones. Cheers Anne
Just want to say that we are impressed with the housesitting site. My husband and I joined in Sept and have had some good offers to housesit. We have done one in NQ and another next month for two months near Mackay. Very happy to date with the type of people we are 'working' for, so thank you. Regards, Carolyn
I am really delighted with Ausie House Sitters! I only joined a week ago having decided to go out on a limb and sell my possessions. My aim is to travel around Australia starting in coastal South-East Queensland. I already have two lovely 'sits' booked. The second one is for 10 weeks and I offered to drive up and meet the houseowners and their pet first. (It was only an hour away.)This was very reassuring for them as it is a long time to leave their much loved elderly puss. The site has a lovely feel to it and it's fun checking all the homeowners' ads. The joining fee is very reasonable. Thank you so much for being a part of my new life! Claire
Hello, first I must say how happy David & I have been with Aussie House Sitters. We've been members for some time and have been inandated with request to house sit and in no time have a full house sitting calander for the year. We have enjoyed many hoilday's from the Hunter Valley to the Blue Mountains to Tasmania and Victoria, and now off to Hindmarsh Island. We care for many pets, big & small and just spoil them all a little. Judith & David
Have already been fully booked except for a few weeks and I will take a holiday with friends during that time. Can't thank you enough for this great web site of yours. I was really worried about where I would live after the house sale. Now I am completely organised and has all slotted in beautifully. Carol
I have had much success on your site and am saving a good sized deposit to purchase my own home next year. I have made some good friends, looked after delightful pets which I usually become attached to, and stayed in some beautiful homes. Lianne
I have found the Aussie House Sitters service very effective and once registered I found a position that suited me very quickly. Best Wishes, Kim
We regret that we won't be renewing our membership with Aussie House Sitters. We have been VERY fortunate to have found a house sitting position that has lasted more than 18 months and looks like lasting much longer. We have our own cottage on a property and have been told we can stay on even after our owners return. Should we decide to move on we'll certainly join up again as we've made new friends through our housesitting commitments. Good luck for the future. Regards Denise and John
George was horrified when I suggested we try House-Sitting. He said "what if we get one that is dirty"? Believe me we have never been disappointed. We have made some lovely new friends and cared for some delightful pets, all over Australia. Once they discover we have built,owned and operated Hotels/Motels for 31 years and know how to care for their beautiful homes/Pets, they head off overseas with not a care in the World. Our own home is like Fort Knox and we are very aware of security. All the Queensland house-sits give us the use of their car, which is fantastic, as we now like to fly these days. The only drawback we have found, is, when people we have already sat for, need us again, and we sometimes have to decline, which is sad for both parties.!! House-Sitters have given us a new lease on life. The only question George needs answered is, " how far away is the Golf Course"? He now tells all our friends to try House-Sitting. Kindest Regards, George and Lorraine, Victoria.
My experience with Aussie House Sitters has been great. The very first time I applied in November of 2008, I was accepted to a house where the owners have been constantly living in China and only come home for a couple of weeks at a time when on leave. I can stay with them when they are home if I wish but I usually choose to stay with a friend for those weeks. I am still in the same place after nearly two years and have been very happy there. I love looking after their house and the two dogs and the galah! At this point I believe I will continue in the same house sit until late 2011 when I will once again search for a new house sit through Aussie House Sitters. Regards, Lynn
We have just completed our first year as sitters with Aussie House Sitters. Within a day of registering last year we had a call and a house sit. Since then we have had two other contacts, and 2 of the three are now repeating. So we are very happy with the service. Ken & Lorraine
I have been very pleased as a Aussie House Sitters house sitter. Since joining last year in September I have had many wonderful house sits in various parts of Australia and met some fantastic people as well as made lasting friendships. I would like to thank you and your staff for providing such a user friendly system and for supporting us throughout the year. As long as we continue travelling around Australia we will be registered with Aussie House Sitters cause we have had fun experiences we would never have had if we weren't House Sitting. I have recommended your site to many people we meet interested in becoming House Sitters because of the success we have had. Kind regards, K P
Hello Aussie House Sitters Admin - Sorry to say, but we are now settled on the Gold Coast for a year. We really really enjoyed the experience of house sitting with you and we were booked out from the day we signed up! I have not updated my details and still receive calls and have had two couples already call up asking if we can sit again, that is all within 8 months of our travels! Thank you for the experience and we have told many people, friends and family about your website and forwarded your link to them. From around Australia, to South Africa, USA and UK. We will join again at some stage, we are very interested to travel for a longer period down the track so hopefully we will be as lucky again with housesitting. Kind regards, Antony & Sharon
Just wish to advise that as we have a very long term housesit job so we will not need to renew our memebership at this time. We will renew the situation in another 12 months. Thankyou! Kathy & Alex
Dear sir/madam. I would like to thank you for the opportunities you have given me to meet new and interesting people and to see places that I have never seen and it would have been very unlikely for me to have seen them. If in the future I decide to house sit again I will not hesitate to contact you. I will also continue to recommend your website to whoever will listen to me. Thankyou,,, John
We have just renewed with Aussie House Sitters for the next 12 months. Thanks for the site. We've had plenty of house sits now as a result of it and are really enjoying house sitting. With regards Erica
Thank you for this house sitting assignment which allowed me to be in Perth for several weeks when my daughter was having her second baby - a beautiful little girl. I live in South Australia, and really wanted to be around so I could be of some help with her very active toddler, both before and after the baby arrived. I wanted to be near, but not actually living with them, but couldn't afford to pay for accommodation. Obviously a house-sit was the answer, but I'd never done it before. Then I found this site, and I'm so glad I did! I had been thinking of perhaps two weeks either side of the ETA of the baby - end of August, beginning of September. Scrolling through the Homeowners Register I found a couple who wanted someone from the first of August to the end of September - even better. I emailed late one night, and had an answer early next morning! The rest, as they say, is history. Additionally they're happy to have me back when they go away again next year, so I'll be able to visit and see how much my grand-children have grown! Many thanks, Beryl
We've done over 13 house sits with 90% coming from your website. We love looking up the new jobs every day. It is very easy to use and has enabled us to have a lovely life style house sitting around Australia. We have mostly booked out next year. Many thanks Gerry & Trish
We joined Aussie House Sitters one year ago and would recommend this service to both housesitters and homeowners looking for sitters. We have completed a number of assignments and have been asked by several owners to come back. We are now booked up until later next year. I have found that owners appreciate quick replies and meeting us if at all possible as with most situations communication is very important. The website is very easy to use and update. A lot of owners seem to prefer contacting listed sitters rather than advertising themselves so it pays to keep your listing current and refreshed. Sue & Lloyd
Thank you for the reminder that my annual payment in due. I am more than happy to pay for such a fabulous service. We have met so many lovely people because of the house-sitting opportunities, and stayed at some lovely homes and interesting places. And we are already booked up until October 14 next year. So you can see, we are keeping ourselves very busy. We are housesitting now in Canberra. Thank you, and I wish you and your staff a very Merry Christmas, and a very Happy and Healthy New Year. Barbara J.

*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.


Aussie House Sitters is a big fan, and corporate supporter of Australia's leading animal protection society, who do extraordinary work, 24/7 for pets and other animals nationwide.
