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
Our thanks for your assistance we got our first house sitting booking the next day so system definitely works. Many thanks Joy
I would like to say that the website is fantastic and easy to use. I enjoyed housesitting in the first house I had house sat for.  The neighbours were fantastic and I continue to enjoy the company of the homeowners! Helena
Hi there, Just want to let people know how happy we are with Aussiehousesitters Website. We bought our new Home, a Winnebago and started travelling with our cherished companion, Chad (Cocker Spaniel) we went to Tassie for 8 weeks, ended up over there for 10 months, just love the place. Whilst there travelling got talking to fellow travellers who recommended Aussiehousesitters as a convenient way of camping in winter. Well after registering we found a wonderful property on Bruny Island to camp for 6 weeks, from there in we have had literally dozens of enquiries to house (pet) sit, it is a wonderful experience to help someone out, and make lifelong friends, it suits everyone all round, love it love it. A wonderful mix of travelling and meeting people. Just re-registered and looking forward to another year on the road. Marg, Leon & Chad
Your house sitters website most defiantly works. We registered as sitters just over a week ago and we got 4 enquiries in one day (yesterday) not sure if that is a record! I guess you would never know! Thanks.. Joy & Merv
Your site has been very helpful for us, and we'll certainly join it when we want to house sit again. Your site is very user friendly. It was helpful to be able to look at the available house sits before we joined Aussie House Sitters. We had some lovely house sits over the last year. Keep up the wonderful service, Janine
Thank you. We managed to find 2 house sits during our time with Aussie House Sitters. We also received many emails from people of which we needed to decline due to duplication. We have decided to rent now, but our house sitting experience was a positive one. Jacqui
We registered to house sit a few months ago and have been very lucky in acquiring a 12 mth contract. As you can imagine we are delighted with our response to joining Aussie House Sitters. Pauline & Gordon
Thanks for your reminder, for renewal of our registration to AHS's, but at this stage we will have to let our membership lapse, as we have taken a long term 'sit'. We would like to thank you and your team for the assistance you have given us and we have had many 'sits' and have had to refuse many more. eg. We had a 5 month stay on a farm, at Hamilton, in Vic and had to refuse some 16 wanting us! The service you have provided has been excellent and we have passed your name on to many. One of the main reason's for our house and farm sitting has been that money we invested for a house, when we retired, has been, and still is, frozen. The house sitting has enabled us to live a reasonable life, save some money, help others and to see more of the country. We couldn't have done all this without your help. You run a great business and if we ever have to go back on the 'road' we wouldn't hesitate to contact you people. Kind regards, Jan and Don
We commenced Housesitting in Sydney 18 months ago to tide us over when in between accommodation and not sure whether to remain in or move out of Sydney. We had heard Housesitting was a good option and so decided to give it a go. Within a few weeks of registering on Aussie Housesitters we were contacted by a few Homeowners and eventually chose a 'sit' that fitted perfectly with us vacating our property and which was in an area close to our familiar surroundings. Very reluctantly I stored my precious belongings, packed a few bags and so we headed off into the unknown. As the months have slipped by and we've continued to get great 'sits' in our preferred areas, we have continued with it; getting better organised with every move...! It has proven a wonderful way to move into semi-retirement, as by housesitting we are able to do work of our choosing and take time with the daunting decision on our final destination. Whilst initially a reluctant 'sitter' I have found that, with every housesit I have relaxed into it more. We consider it an honour to be 'selected' by Homeowners to live in their home and care for their beloved pets. We enjoy getting to make new friends, both furry and human, and while some pets can be challenging, to know them is to love them! The best thing about Housesitting is that it truly is a WIN-WIN situation. Homeowners can go on their holiday knowing people they trust are living in their home & keeping it secure whilst providing the same routine and TLC their pets are accustomed to. And Housesitters get free accommodation and the opportunity to get to know different breeds of animals in exchange for providing the services expected by their Homeowner. Have a good day! Robie and Andrew
I am already receiving calls for housesitting and wish to thank you at Aussie House Sitters. Regards, Ann
Less than a week since I registered on here as a housesitter and already have received 3 contacts from home owners directly - with one house sit for 2 periods shortly, a 6 week stint in far north Queensland, another house sit for 3 months early 2013. Thanks heaps. I’m hopping round like a teenager with an overload of raspberry cordial right now :) Lorraine
Hello, I just wanted to give you some feedback regarding our registration with you earlier in the year. We've been able to secure two house sits back to back for a total of 10 weeks accommodation for when we first arrive in Adelaide and we are so chuffed that I just had to pass on our hugest thanks for your service! It's going to take a huge amount of pressure off our initial arrival and we are sure we can secure a long term rental during this period and hopefully some work. Once again, many, many thanks - I will recommend you at every opportunity! Dave
Our first house sit after joining your site was for 12 months & recontracted for a further 12 months with the likelihood of up to 5 yrs for Expat. Owners only home about 6 weeks per year. Thank you for all your help. We have also advised many people to join your well serviced organisation whilst we have been members. Sincerely, James & Di
A major aspect of being a member of Aussie House Sitters (AHS) is TRUST. This is my second year as a house sitter and I have had many contacts from home owners who are open and friendly. I have really enjoyed the lovely dogs, cats, budgies, and fish belonging to the admirable people who trusted me to care for their homes and their pets. I can't speak highly enough of the initial assistance I received from Nick at AHS. The whole idea was new to me and the openness and inviting set-up enabled me to trust that it would be a good idea. And it has been. I meet great owners - sadly have had to refuse a number because of generally being constantly booked. I have been trusted to care for specific animals who are most definitely the 'babies' their owners feel are so very dear to them. I am no Dr Doolittle but I can tell when an animal trusts a person or not, and so far I have only encountered trusting animals. AHS is simply professionally well organised in addition to not costing a fortune for house sitting members to join. That's also rather unusual in today's market arena but very helpful to retirees like me. To be able to also say it is an organisation based on trust and that shows, is really impressive. Well done folks. Phyll W
Your service is superb. I am now booked for 7 months in 2013 - this is an incredible lifechange. As well as housesitting for homeowners, several friendships have been formed. Thanks for a great service. Best wishes, Laurie

*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.
