My name is Rob Gordon and I've house sitting with your site since August. Almost immediately after signing up we got our first hit in a beautiful home over looking the water in a fantastic neighborhood in Sydney ... And it's only gotten better from there, In fact we've been booked solid all the way through until mid-July and we now have to start turning down house sits. House Sitting has been a great experience, if you want to travel cheap or just stop paying rent all together, you need to start house sitting ... Today If you have any doubts about House Sitting, trust me it's awesome and Aussie House Sitters is the best. Rob
Hi there Aussie Housesitters. We are house sitters and find your site amazing!!! Really works! One is never too sure about these things these days. But your site is definitely alive & well. Congratulations on the continuing effort you are obviously making to ensure your site works and is user friendly. Sincere kind regards ... and thanks!! Robbi & Andrew
We are currently in perth, doing our 3rd house sit. previous house sits were in melbourne and victor harbar SA, all of them coming about thru your website. we have also tried other house sitter websites but this one is the best, with up-to-date entries and a website that actually comes up with the information you searched for (e.g. searching for WA, it actually gives you only WA-ads and not from all over australia) and not stuff that you have to sift thru yourself we have had great responses to our profile - maybe because we are not 20 anymore and have a couple of kids?! - with people asking us to double back so we can do their house sit. awesome site, thank you!!

Thanks Nick, For your website... I signed up to your website and received an offer within two minutes! I was still fidding about with my profile details when the message came through. It was just the confirmation I needed to move to Australia and within a week of the first house sit ending I received another wonderful offer that saw me through the worst of the winter. I continue to be amazed and so very grateful at this house sitting community which enables my work in Ethiopia to continue to be possible! I've met such lovely people through it! Warmest wishes, Amanda
Hi Nick. We are happy to renew our memebership with Aussie House Sitters as we have had an enormous response in the last 3 odd years we have been members. We have had some good 'Sits' and met some terrific people. We couldn't count the number of people we have had to refuse, mainly through other committments clashing. Have spread the word and many people looking for sitters were going to contact you people. Keep up the good work. Regards, Jan and Don
I said we would let you know how we have fared after we became house sitters with Aussie House Sitters. I am pleased to say that your service has been very kind and we are getting a very good response - not all suit or they sometimes clash with others, but overall we have been quite successful and we have made some good friends. . . .

We have been so lucky with our housesits, and would like to thank the owners who have put their trust in us to care for their precious belongings, alive or just loved! The Aussie House Sitters site has been so easy to use, and another Thank You for keeping the annual fee so affordable - we recommend you whereever we are in our travels, and find that it promotes huge interest! Both for home owners, and people like us who have taken 'time out' to travel and discover this fabulous country of ours. People are so friendly, and accommodating and by the time we have found a new place to settle, we shall have made so many friends! We cannot speak highly enough of this service, and those who use it!

I learnt how to use a computer 4 years ago last April, where we began our first Farmsit. We fell into it simply by replying to an advert in a bi-monthly magazine. Kangaroo Island 2007. What fun we had. I found this web site through a very helpfull computer agency owner at Kingscote. Who so patiently taught me enough to answer an add plus check the website.. Aussie House Sitters has allowed Des my husband 75, myself 60, full time farm ; house; rental; along with a motel and station sit's. It would take pages to relate the fun , adventure, skills, many much loved pets, we have had & looked after. Of course the owner's have always been so helpful, lovely people as well.Not once have we felt,uncomfortable or in any way not treated each sit as our own home. We have always felt totally happy; secure with each sit being a totally different experience. We have found by keeping in regular touch with future sits very helpful to us along with reassuring the owners we will not let them down. We have returned to a number of "sits" a few times, at present, we are at Beverly W.A. If anyone is so inclined to just "have a go" at something different to the "norm" this is an incredible way to have a long extended "life experience" limited only to your "have a go mate" attitude. After looking after an Alphca stud a few years ago, I asked if the herd was valuable. The owner replied " you could say that $1,000,000 ; as I had just asked for a reference, he asked if I would like "gullable" on the reference as well. Your website has been recommended to a lot of people we have met along the way. The new method of applying is great as well. I felt a little' hesitant ' until I heard from my first homeowner. Still a little wobbly on "my computer legs'. OK. everyone, no need to sit at home "wishing & a hoping"; there is a whole new world out there, not everyone's cup of tea.Just as well' or we would not have had 4 of the best years in our 41 years of married life. Many thanks to you & your staff. Des & Marj
Since registering with you we have had quite a few enquiries, and will be house sitting in Pampas near Toowoomba for Jan-Feb next year. Thanks for the service Max & Joan
Firstly thank you for your wonderful website. We became members on June 7 2011. By June 13 we had our first house sit in Adelaide, which we have just completed. So many people have contacted us from your site that we are now booked through until December of this year. Thank you - it has opened up a whole new world for us, one that we are very much enjoying. John & Sue
My husband and I joined Aussie House Sitters in 2010 as we were retired and were looking to live in the sunshine. We have a home in New Zealand where we spend the summer but then have to leave for 6months of year. Instead of returning to the UK we have been house sitting around Queensland It has been a truly wonderful experience. We have met and made friends with some lovely people stayed in some very nice homes and looked after a variety of really lovely pets. Our family and friends back in the UK just cant believe our wonderful experiences they have even said I should write a book about it. We are house sitting at the moment and have just been invited back to a house sit we did last year. Thanks Aussie House Sitters for opening a whole new world for us. Ray and Diane
Hi Aussie housesitters. I have received a lot of requests without having to look at the homeowner ads. I'm in great demand, I even have the next 3 sits without meeting the people. It's all working for me, Regards Marilyn
I'd like to give a testimonial from a house sitter. I have met the most amazing animals and people by being a house sitter. Aussie House Sitters has been my predominant source of leads, so much so that my partner and I are about to complete 12 months of housesitting and nearly have enough money for a house and kitten of our own. An awesome 'pay it forward' service :-) Karen
I am very happy with your website, I have had a number of house sits since I joined earlier this year, and have stayed in some lovely places, the house owners have all been lovely people, and have also enjoyed 2 farm sits looking after a variety of animals - that was great. Regards, Gwen
As a sitter I'm really enjoying using your website. We have had an amazing time for the last 9 months and are looking forward to more experiences along the way. Jenny J.
Thanks to your website we are now fully booked through until January, 2013 when we will have to make a decision as to whether on not we want to continue this interesting lifestyle or to finally settle down!!! Yours faithfully Denise and Graeme
Greetings to the wonderful team at Aussie House Sitters. Since joining Aussie Housesitters in March 2011, my life has been completely transformed. With the exception of a few scattered weeks, I have been fully booked and rebooked from early June 2011 until the end of October 2012. Whilst house sitting has provided me with the wonderful company of pets (mainly dogs), I have also had the benefits of making new friends and visiting some very peaceful and delightful locations. Thanks to your site, I have made many homeowners comfortable, secure and relaxed; as well as re-energizing my own life. Well done Aussie Housesitters, Laurie
Thank you so much for you website - we've had some wonderful housesits, met some lovely people and lovely pets as well. It's been great. When we are ready to be off again, we'll be in touch. Kindest regards Brenda & Peter
I just wanted to write to you and Aussie House Sitters to say thank you for all the help you have given me and my little family over the past year. We moved to Australia as a threesome - my husband, son and I, and decided to give house-sitting a try. Not knowing which area we wanted to settle in, the house-sitting was a really fantastic way of trying out different areas, and see where we liked, and how we felt there. It was also a great way of meeting locals and finding local schools etc. Coming from a different country, without a huge budget, meant we faced even more challenges in re-location and settling in. However, Aussie House Sitters provided a great way to meet new people, and all our house sitting families were very kind and gracious to us, and we keep in touch with many of them. One of them has even offered us a bed for our new house. So we feel very blessed to have had you in our lives for the past year. At times, it was a life saver, at others, an adventure, but always, it gave us a sense of living a real life, in a home, and of course, the benefit of the company of some furry beings, while our own much-missed pets remained with family back home. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank You. All the very best. Keep up the fantastic work. We have recommended you highly to everyone we meet. Anne Marie, John and Sean (Ireland)
I utilised the site to find 2 houses to live in whilst my furniture was in storage. It was very important to the owners that the small dogs who we shared the homes with were well cared for and loved. We had no problem doing this as it was a small price to pay for all the facilities available to us in each home. In both cases we were surrounded by beautiful views - one in the Blue Mountains! I have no hesitation in recommending the use of this amazing site. Thank you for the facility. Priscilla

*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.
