We have to thank Aussie house sitters for there great web sight and to Veronica & John from the Shingles for putting so much Trust in us thank you. We can not wait for our next house sit. Barbara & Garry
For your information we have done two house sits - one for 4 weeks and one for 4 months. Both were fun and we enjoyed the experience. We have also had about a dozen other requests but were not able to oblige due to other commitments including the 4 months house sit. So many thanks :) Gillian & Gary
Think the site is wonderful have just accepted another sit for 4 months. Regards, Tess & Pete
We would like to thank you for the excellent service you provide. Within a few weeks of registering we received an email from a lady asking us to housesit her unit in Mosman, Sydney, for 9 days. We emailed her our mobile phone number and after a long chat she was very comfortable with offering us the housesit. Terry & Cheryl
I would like to thank your site for the wonderful time and life I am having with all my house sit jobs. I have met some lovely people having done jobs in Berkeley, Ashtonfield, Wolumla, Hervey Bay I have had no bad experiences to date. I am booked up till next November and I am having a ball what a life, and what a way to see Australia and I have no problem with having to use public transport it is just the greatest. Thanks again Shirley
Hi Aussie House Sitters Team, We won't be renewing our membership this year, not because we were not happy with the response to our membership, but rather because we have moved into a new house and need to spend some time getting it in order. We were actually inundated with opportunities for house sitting last year and, had we been able to, we could have spent almost the whole year away from home. Requests came for us to spend 2 months at Lake Munmorah, 2 months at Charlestown, 1 month at Port Macquarie, 4 months at Coffs Harbour and 1 month at Wangi Wangi. So, your website really does work and once we get sorted here we will think about rejoining. It's a great way to have a change of scenery and to give others the peace of mind in knowing that their pets and home are being cared for while they are away. Thanks for the opportunity. Marion and Kelvin
Hello thanks for renewal reminder. Patrick is currently away on a farm sit. Yes, we will renew. We have had a very successful year with Aussie House Sitters. Around 130 enquiries. We have squeezed in 6 Pet Sits and met some fantastic pets and people in the process. We have been given wonderful references - a great boost when you haven't had one for many years. Pet Sitting has given us confidence that, despite our retirement, our ability to manage animals and look after a house is still very alive and so are we. We plan an extended overseas holiday ourselves. Regards, Eileen
It has been 12 months nearly since we started house sitting and we have sat at some very nice houses and some ordinary houses but all the owners have been excellant people. we have had numerous unsolisited requests to sit which we could not attend to as we were already booked. we have houses with dogs and indeed one sit involved 3 dogs. we are so pleased to have taken on sitting and would say to those thinking of doing the same --go for it. we are usually booked 12 months in advanced and apart from meeting nice home owners we are seeing the country side. thanks to the organisers of the site -- a job well done Brian
Dear Aussiehousesitters, We found your service satisfactory and achieved the results we wanted while we built our house and we had about 6 or so responses as we were specific on Hervey Bay area. Thank you for your help. Regards, Kevin and Pam
I've been very successful with your web-site, thank you! Not only have I found a number of home-owners on the site, but a number of homeowners have rung me directly too. I've had to decline a number of offers already and have in fact, referred many people to your web-site to find a suitable sitter. Thanks very much! Charmaine
Hello, we have found your site to be excellent in regards to finding farm sits in W.A. We have both been so happy with our new way of life, we would recommend it to anyone, wanting a complete change to their lives. We have been in the West for 6 months - we have untill the middle of July booked up. Des & Marj
We are currently in Rockhampton Queensland on our second sit arranged through the site. Kind regards, John
Thank you we were contacted after only 48 hours after registering with you. WE live in Cairns and are now taking on a sitting job in Albany (WA). This will be a great experience (we hope) as we will be riding our motobikes over to WA. We couldn't be happier. I was quite amazed how quickly we had responses. We actually thought we would have to do the chasing. Thank you again. Peter & Dolores
As an Aussie living in the U.K. with an English wife, we have just completed our first experience of house-sitting in Australia. Six weeks on the NSW Central Coast turned out to be a dream holiday and we felt privileged to be trusted by strangers to care for their home and cat etc. Aussie Housesitters could not have been more helpful right from the beginning and their fees are well below so many others. With such a good data base of addresses they provided a good choice in all areas. Living in a fairly small community we soon made friends with neighbours who showed exceptional kindness and warmth. We were encouraged to join in all sorts of organisations, including a Yoga class for seniors, bowls at the local church, the busy R.S.L. club and so on. Choosing not to rent a car we used a good local bus and train service for day trips and shopping. Some neighbours noticed this and insisted on taking us out sightseeing in their cars. Such kind people. It was a pleasure to look after the property as we would our own and we were able to keep in touch with the owners from time to time by e-mail. They were great to deal with right from the start and they even said we were doing them a favour. The pleasure was ours! Can't wait for another opportunity to leave the British winter and find another house-sit with Aussiehousesitters. John & Chris
I'm just writing to say thank you for your easy to navigate and cost effective website, and your prompt and helpful attention to my earlier techical difficulties. I have not house sat before, but have managed to secure a 6 week sit of a gorgeous house with equally gorgeous pets within a week of signing up! I thought my lack of experience would make it hard to get a place, but apparently not! I look forward to many more experiences as an Aussie house sitter after this one! Regards, Tabitha
Our experience to housesit an australian house with dog, 20 chicken, cat and colourful birds was just so good. Our little girls (3 and 1 year old) enjoyed it also very much. The beach, the wildlife and travelling afterwards. The 3 year old started to speak english and the other one learned to walk in australia. We had such a wonderful time. Without Aussie House Sitters we couldn't have done this ever. Ulli and Wolfgang (from Austria)
Since we joined last year (2007) we have been flat out and have offers of bookings through to Jan 2010. Neil
We are almost ready to unpack our bags and boxes having house sat for the last few years. House sitting has enabled us to travel wherever we want. We have met some interesting people and made a few friends along the way. Starting in Tasmania we were on a 6 week holiday and wanted to see more ....... Logged on the Aussie House Sitters site, completed the information request - paid the registration fee - 36 hour later I confirmed my first house sit! We enjoyed three house sits in Tasmania over a period of 5 months. Our duties ranged from feeding thorough bred horses, chickens, walking dogs watering gardens and taking bookings for a B&B, all of which gives you freedom to enjoy the location and get to know the locals. On our return to NSW we had two prospective house sits both successfully completed. We then spent Christmas in the UK returning with two more prospective house sits ........... House sitting is a fantastic experience, it gives you the freedom to travel every where your heart desires and your feet can carry you. Thank you to Aussie House Sitters for the opportunity and this great experience! Lynda
Thanks for your assistance - it is much appreciated. I love your site and the personal feel it gives out. I have enjoyed sits and sitters through it. Keep up the great work and thanks for the prompt feedback - cheers!! Jenny

*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.
